My girlfriend and I stayed at this comfortable motel for 3 nights in late August. Our room had a cabin-like feel with its dark wooden walls, and it contained all the amenities one expects from a lodge (it even had a large clothing rack to hang wet towels and swim suits).
The motel has a swimming pool, some two-seat swings and broad lawn space. Location wise, it's a convenient 30-second drive off highway 5 and within walking distance to Lake Shasta. Also, the family that runs the place were very friendly and helpful.
My only complaint is that the AC sounded like an industrial behemoth that produced at least 60 dB of noise. Seriously, I've never heard anything so loud in my life. And I couldn't even turn it off because it was 90-100 degrees throughout that weekend!
