Booked rooms thru DirectInn.com - checked the motels web site and looked at pictures - all seemed fine until we tried to reach them direct- they never answered the phone, nor did they respond to a fax and an e-mail - another hotel actually made contact to confirm our rooms- then when we got there the owner working in the office did not speak English - the smell was awful. There was garbage around the grounds- it appears that transients are staying there- the buildings are in terrible condition, patched stairs and railings- the pool and surrounding area are a health hazard. Thankfully we were able to get rooms at the Fallon Hotel - and all was not a disaster !
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Rob and his fiancé Cheryl have put a lot of hard work, dedication and passion into the Columbia Inn Motel to make it a positive experience. We enjoy meeting and getting to enjoy our guests personally. Our goal is to make everyone feel at home while visiting ours. Rob served 14 years in the Air Force and has had several ventures since. One of which is 49er Mining Supplies, that he opened in 2001 and is currently located adjacent to the motel office. Rob's knowledge of mining is vast and he loves sharing with all. We invite you to come to the Columbia Inn Motel located in the heart of the Mother Lode and take a step back in time. Be sure you take time to visit the historic Columbia State Park which is a short walking distance from us. ... more less
