“Great pet friendly resort at Lake Shasta”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We stayed at Bridge Bay Resort this past 4th of July and had a great time there! Our room on the second floor (can't remember the number) was very clean, had plenty of room for both of us and our dog, and even though we had double beds, they were comfortable. We were also close to our truck and boat near the pool which made loading and unloading the boat really convenient and I also felt really secure leaving the boat down there. Can't comment on the restaurant, we ate in the bar both nights and the food was great! We had no problems launching the boat and their ramp is still concrete even with Lake Shasta as low as it is. They even had golf carts that would pick you up and drive to your vehicle or back down the ramp since most parking is far away. All of their staff that we had contact with was friendly and helpful. I'd recommend Bay Bridge Resort to anyone, especially if you have a boat and a dog. We're definitely going back there before this summer is over!

Room Tip: Stay on the second floors or the rooms overlooking the pool.

Fourth of July is a favorite holiday for all of us here, and we're very excited that you, your family and four-legged friend were happy with our accommodations. It sounds like you had a great time on the water and that's what we always hope for! We know it's been a couple years since you wrote this, but we hope you got a chance to come back last summer. Perhaps you'll be joining us again soon -- the water level is up, you know!

Best wishes,
Bridge Bay at Shasta Lake

My wife and I went to the hotel office yesterday to get info on the rooms and were told that there were no rooms to look at and had no brochures available,the two people at the registration desk were unenthusiastic and lazy,on a chance we drove up to the motel location and a very nice lady who was cleaning the rooms showed us a nice room with BBQ and kitchen which is what we are looking for next year,because of her we will book next year and she gave us a price list,yes the units are old but they are very clean and there is room to park your boat at night

I'll agree with a lot of the reviews, the place is old, but, kept up nicely. We stayed in one of the dog friendly motel rooms, which meant we were with other people with dogs. Nice area at the end of the building for the dogs to play and relax. It was hard to get down to the water, no surprise, the lake level was VERY low and people are correct, no beach towels provided...or pool towels. But, except at high end hotels, I do not expect such luxuries. The pool was nice, but, not dog friendly. The room only has a shower, no tub. The soap, shampoo, etc were above average and a small coffee maker in the room gave us our first cup of coffee for the morning.
As far as the beds, we thought they were comfortable and the linens were average. All in all we enjoyed our stay and will probably stay again.

Stayed 3 nights here. Very disappointed. We had a kitchen suite with view of the parking lot. Private patio that backed up to the mountain so you had view of dirt. Nice BBQ though. Pool was closed 2 out of our 3 days for filter cleaning. Windows can't be opened. If going there be aware there is no direct access to the lake for swimming. If you have a boat or renting a boat then the location is great. Be prepared to bring beach towels - not provided. Any coffee, paper towels, spices etc. for the kitchen is all on you. They do have serving pieces and pots/pans to use. Also, housekeeping will not do dishes. As someone else stated - sheets and towels are very old and not soft at all. Read reviews and be prepared. Won't stay here again...sorry!

Room Tip: don't pick room 120 unless you like looking at other people's cars. Also next to the ice ma...

This is the most uncomfortable place I've ever stayed. The beefs are HORRIBLE, the sheets and pillows are so cheap and itchy, and the food at the restaurant tasted like it had been frozen way too long, just gross. The motel isn't exactly lakefront either. Its up on a hill, and you can see glimpses of the lake if you look past old trailers and trees. I regret staying here very much. My advice is to keep driving, the "lake view" is far from worth suffering through the night here.

We stayed this year during the 4th of July week and had a great time. The hotel was VERY clean and in fact the room next to ours was getting a new Carpet while we were there. Ours had already been replaced. The furniture was all oak and new. Older TV but worked fine. They have Direct TV and some of our favorite Channels were featured. The room isn’t a fancy Resort you may find in the Caribbean but good for what they are intended for. We spent all day on Shasta Lake which is right below the hotel. There was only one problem we had while there. On one of the hottest days on record, we came back from the Lake and when we got into the room the AC stopped. I called the front desk and almost immediately one of the hotel staff was knocking on my door asking if she could come in to check the AC. She took one look at it and moved my shoe I had kicked off when I came in and plugged the unit back in.. Presto it started back up. DOH! My fault. The AC worked perfect the whole time there.
Would we stay there again? Absolutely. The cost is reasonable and right on the Lake. When checking in you are given a card with your info that allows you to use it at the restaurant, marina and stores and then pay up at the end of your stay. This eliminates the need to carry cash or a credit card.

Room Tip: We stayed in a King Room Second Floor facing the lake. Had a partial view of the Lake (trees). No r...

Thankfully, I read these reviews before we stayed here for a week and moored our boat while meeting up with friends who were houseboating. Here are some things I think will help.

The pool was a bit too cold to play in. Bring pool towels as they are not provided.

We had a kitchen unit which does not have a microwave. The unit is clean, the tv channels barely come in on a 25 or older tv and there is no Internet service and my AT&T service was spotty. If your room does not have a coffee maker, then ask the front desk if they have any extra.

There is only a shower so if you have young ones, be aware. There is also not a hairdryer and the water took 10 minutes to warm up everyday. The vaulted ceilings are a plus and we kept the a/c on to drown out the neighbors' noise.

It was 165 steps down to the boat each day so be prepared.

Be sure to bring paper plates, paper towels, and charcoal for the grill. They provide utensils, but the grill is not gas. You may also want a table cloth and some sort of cleaner like 409 to clean surfaces. They provide a sponge and dish cleaner but the daily housekeeping does not include dish washing.

I brought push pins To hang up blankets and towels to help with the morning light. It is extremely bright in these rooms.

Overall, the location is fabulous. The meals at Tail o' the whale were great and we were prepared to have a good time.
