I searched for something affordable with character.. For a night on the road I really didn't want to spend upwards of $65. for simple lodging. We wanted clean, safe, and fun in a pretty setting. We found cheap, decent, and friendly. Think old. Torn carpet. New bed. Good air conditioner. Clean sheets. We would come again. There is room to... More

This motel is family owned and operated. They have water bottles for .50 cents in office. We traveled with two younger girls and they seemed to enjoy the lack of traffic in the lot where they played. The pool was warm and cozy and so inviting my friend hasn't swam in 6 years and she jumped in. Definitely a comfy... More

First let me say that I am rating Shasta Dam Motel as a "5" in comparison to other motels of it's same type--old motor court type motels from the 1940 & 50's. As you exit off Interstate 5 to get to this motel, you come to an intersection with a recently built modern McDonald's and Rite Aid. But as you... More

A well maintained swimming pool and lots of other niceties like barbecue and shaded sitting area. Plenty of parking and very flexible with parking boat and trailer. Will stay again for sure. Note not lake access need... More

You get what you pay for here. It is clean with easy on and off the interstate. Lots of dining nearby with a Rite Aid also. Small rooms, very small bathrooms but if all you are looking for is a clean bed and shower this is the place. You get some interstate noise but the air conditioner fan drowned it... More
