We were fortunate to find this diamond in the rough! The owners are great and make you feel at home. The rooms are very clean and you have easy access to the outside with chairs waiting for you to sit down and take in the outdoors.
I love the cabin feel (decor is old, but that's what makes this place so great) and some rooms even have their own kitchens. I stayed in a room with two queen beds with two other adults and we had plenty of room! I even forgot my purse on the front porch when we went to bed and it was there when I woke up!
The pool was clean and refreshing with towels provided by the motel. We sat by the pool and met people from around California, enjoying their company and sharing laughs. There is a great little restaurant right next door that offers great breakfast. They even have a store with anything you could need at very reasonable prices. We went out Saturday to a restaurant down the road (don't have to get on Hwy) that overlooked Shasta Dam or Lake (not sure) the view was awesome,food was great and the band kept everyone dancing under the stars with the moon in the background!
If you are looking for a great vacation, or just driving through I would recommend this place! Lots to do close by. The beauty of the mountains and the beauty of the people who runs this gem is what staying away from home is about!
Oh yea, dogs are allowed!
Thank you guys for such a great experience.
