Met up with some friends that were on a houseboat on Shasta Lake and wanted local accomodations near the lake for a night. I was referred to the Bridge Bay Resort Motel. I must say the word "motel" had me a little worried, but we were pleasantly surprised. This resort area overlookes the lake and the bridge (hwy 5) that crosses the lake. It has a pool (which we did not use) and a restaurant (which we used for breakfast). The room we had was a corner unit on the second floor. It had 2 comfortable double beds and we also brought in a rollaway for the night and there was still plenty of room. It was very clean. This room had vaulted ceilings which made it feel more spacious and a large closet. I was surprised to find nice plushy towels and the toiletries (shampoo & conditioner) in a "motel". I did bring my own hairdryer. My only "complaint" would be that it would have been nice to have full length curtains on the windows. (There were just mini blinds with a valance and we got a lot of light into our room from the lights outside of the room). The only other small issue we had was that the shower door did not close properly. If you closed it all the way, it got stuck and very hard to open. The staff that we dealt with were all very nice. Being we were staying at the motel we were given courtesy launch for our boat at the marina. There is also a little "general store" on site with just about anything you may need or that you have forgotten. We stayed on a Thursday evening and even though it seemed like there were a lot of people staying there it was quiet. We would stay here again if going to Shasta Lake.
