“One of my most favorite places in the Eastern Sierras”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

I love this place and have stayed here several times over the years. The owners, Chris and Pam are super nice and are very helpful.

This is a classic 50's style motel, but the rooms have been remodeled and are in great condition. Beds and furnishings are comfortable and in good condition. But don't go here expecting the Ritz, it's not that kind of place. and that is the beauty of it!

We stayed here with a group of 13 (7 rooms). We were treated like family and with utmost respect and welcome. The owners, Pam and Chris, had cold drinks on ice for us when we arrived as we had been riding motorcycles all day to their hotel, our destination. They were so nice to us and made us feel like we were at home - very fun loving and accomodating people. The rooms ARE like little cottages with a nice individual touch to each room. Clean and affordable with microwave and refrigerator in our room, spacious bathrooms, nice tables and chairs outside of each room, flowers, birds and gardens on the property..... AND an awesome barbeque restaurant, Mountain View Barbecue, right across the street as well as a little store a few doors down for any necessities. We WILL go back just to stay there!!

After a day on 395 The West Walker Motel was an oasis.
Clean, cozy, and quiet.
Love the soap.
Owners are so friendly and helpful.
Enjoyed the sunset from the tables and chairs outside our room sipping our chocolate shakes.
We will be back.

Room Tip: Try the Walker Burger. Excellent food and a really beautiful outdoor patio/garden to enjoy.

This cute little connected cottage hotel with all sorts of whimsical rustic American touches was the perfect place for my one night stay after a long drive from Washington state. Located in Walker, CA just south of Carson City is in a completely wooded area on the main highway. There are several other small cottage type properties very close at hand. You can pull your car right up practically to your door. Skip Carson City.

Rustic little room with flowered bedspread, casual mismatched furniture of cute little pieces, comfortable bed. Bathroom large enough and they give you a little piece of Shea butter soap when you check in. They provide a WIFI code and there is TV but not many channels. Very cute and very clean.

Barbecue restaurant right across the street and is just as rustic and comfortable as the cottage.

Staff was so nice during check in and for a $67. rate including tax it couldn't be beat.

Fortunate enough to have a light rain during the night with lightning and thunder so opened my windows and just enjoyed the moment. The ceilings are wood beam and you can really hear the rain on the roof.

Fantastic little getaway.

Room Tip: All rooms are convenient. Drive up to your door.

I spent 4 nights here over the 4th of July and it was a great "home away from home". The family members of the West Walker Motel share their love this location: a great place to ride ATV's and go fishing. Since they participate in the local activities, they have all the inside info and are willing to share and advise! The West Walker Motel doesn't have the typical cold corporate rooms of franchises. Rather, the rooms are all decorated with different themes! We stayed in the "cowboy room" and though it was charming, it had all the conveniences needed: microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker & TV. And it was very clean. I hope I have the opportunity to stay here again.

I was blown away when free wifi was included at this motel in one of the smallest towns I've ever stayed the night in. Not to mention the attention to detail in the rooms (I stayed in the Western themed one, with coat hooks made from sautered together horseshoes), all for a measly price. Considering that this is decently close to Carson City and Tahoe, i found it well worth the modest prices.
