“Clean, basic accomodations”
Reviewed 6 September 2010

Quincy isn't noted for excellent accommodations. When you need a pet friendly location, the choices are even more limited. We had stayed at the Gold Pan Lodge over five years ago with our previous dog, so we booked again with pretty low expectations.

We have to say we were pleasantly surprised. The place was clean. That's probably #1 in our book that a motel has to pass hygienic basics. The carpet was clean as was the bathroom floor. No mold at the bottom edge of the shower curtain (one of those subtle cleanliness checks). The bath towels were nice and soft and fluffy, not the usual scratchy threadbare fare you typically get in classic motels. The rest of the room was nice and clean.

We did have to move rooms since upon entry to our first room we discovered that the refrigerator wasn't working. They quickly moved us to a new room. Contrary to another recent Trip Advisor reviewer, we experienced a helpful and friendly front desk staff.

The owners have been putting money into the place, that's clear. The A/C unit was pretty new with digital controls and it worked flawlessly. That was important given the hot weather in Quincy at the time. The A/C kept the room at the set temperature. The bathroom linoleum floor looked pretty new. The bed was comfortable (no sagging). The hot water was ample in a no frills shower/tub.

The room came with a refrigerator, small microwave and DVD player. Free movie DVDs were available in the office (but nothing looked particularly interesting to us so we didn't try the DVD player). The TV included HBO and a decent assortment of Sacramento and national cable TV channels (about 30-35 total). A small coffee pot with preloaded coffee brewing filters, sugar packets and powdered creamer was in the room but there were no tea bags or coffee stirrers (!) that you usually get. A no-frills continental breakfast (think those cellophane-packaged Svenhard's pastries) was available in the lobby. The free WiFi that actually worked was an unexpected bonus.

Be prepared that the rooms are pretty small, with only a few feet around the bed. A suite it is not! But it was functional, clean, basic sleeping quarters. Our little dog loved it and the pet surcharge was reasonable ($10 per night I believe). If you keep your expectations down, you're in for a nice, clean, comfortable stay at the Gold Pan Lodge.

they've got dvds and breakfast, but those are really outweighed by the truly terrible service. you can't watch the dvds, after all, if nobody will fix your tv (which happened). ended up moving locations for final couple days' stay in town.

The facility is locataead near downtown. It is clean and economical. This is the only motel in quincy which has office staff available for 24 hrs. The jaccuzi tub was relaxing and it realy worth it.

This place is really run down and tired besides pretty dirty and dusty. Light out in bathroom and asked for replacement. Never came in three days. We moved one of the night table lamps next to sink and that worked so didn't complain. It is more important to have a good time in area than to have drama over room deficiencies. Quincy is great!

Pleasantly surprised at the little extras! Establishment is clean, quiet. Nice amenities, fair pricing, well maintained. Travel alone, but feel very safe staying here. 24-hour staff who make it feel like home.

There is nothing inherently wrong with the Gold Pan Lodge, but its long overdue for a refurbishing, even though apparently it is undergoing some renovation, it doesn't show yet. Expect worn carpets, linens, furniture, plus stains and rub marks on walls, doors, ceilings. The continental breakfast is pretty good and there's free Wi-Fi and a DVD library in the lobby, with players in the rooms. But beds are small, rooms tiny, the bathroom had an odor, doors are flimsy and you hear the occassional logging truck roaring past. But with few motels in Quincy, I may stay again. Not for a romantic getaway but OK if you need to sleep on a business trip or long road trip.

  • Liked — free Wi Fi, DVD library
  • Disliked — lack of sparkle throughout
