“Would not stay here again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

Stayed here 6 years ago, it was 10x better. This time Redding Police were at the room next door to us twice in 2 days. It was FILTHY, had to wash my daughter's feet twice in one evening just from walking on the carpet. Curtains were hanging off the rod at both ends. The grounds, parking lot, rooms, office area, the entire property was, sad to say, just nothing less than a dive. If I had known it had gone so downhill, I would never have brought my family and in-laws back. Front desk staff, I think Celeste (?), was very sweet.

This place is not even worth a rating! We stayed one night on our way South. The bed was
terrible....mattress very thin and pillows were hard. Didn't sleep at all! The bathroom was so dirty, that I could even want or take a shower! Black mold around the edges of the tub, etc.
Very noisy with people walking around at all hours of the night. Parts of the ceiling were falling
down. Stains on the box spring of the bed. It was very gross! Would NEVER stay here again!

First of all - the staff was really nice:) The rest.. Not so good! Stayed here for 1 night. Our room was ok.. Not so clean, not so big and not so nice.. But it was ok! We got a bed for the night, and a shower in the morning, only for $43. Will not stay here again!

I feel a bit guilty about the poor rating because the staff was very accommodating; still, I am rating the hotel not the people. With that said, what a dump. Supposedly, this place was the nicest of all the dumps (I'd hate to see the other places!) Not only is the building in shambles, but the neighborhood itself seems a bit dodgy. I had to refrain from using the fan in the bathroom when taking a shower because it made the entire room smell like cigarette smoke. Also, the carpets could use a shampoo, as they left my barefoot feet filthy. The whole place just made me itch. Yuck! My advice, don't stay in Redding at all! Keep heading north to Shasta or even past Shasta to a cute little town called McCloud.

Room Tip: Look before you book!

We stayed at the hotel 8 months ago. It was quiet and comfortable for our 2 nights stay. This time around I must say, this place is a dive! Bags of trash in the parking lot left by staff. The beds were uncomfortable...to the point of causing pain, and the bath towels smelled funky, like no detergent was used. Loud obnoxious guests walking around at all hours of the night. They woke me up twice at 1am and 330am. Band at Lulu's was long gone too. It rained all night, but at 7:04am...the landscape crew was using a leaf blower for 22 minutes trying to blow away wet leaves & debris. How stupid is that? I was searching for a new hotel by 730am. I will never return.

My family and i travel too redding a few times a year, We stay at this hotel every time. The staff are friendly its very affordable and my room is always ready and clean. The pool makes it fun for the family in the summer cause it can get hot in California. I would recommend this hotel too anyone.

While this hotel is in the downtown Redding area it is very affordable and provides easy access to several ammenities including two hospitals, several restaurants, and shopping. There is a pool which looks like an inviting place to relax and let the kids play. The service was excellent. Every time I needed something the front desk clerk was more than willing to help with anything I needed. There is a continental breakfast served between 6am and 9am. Love the pastries! While this motel is not perfection, the value is there and you get what you pay for. For a family looking for afordable accomodations, this is a good choice! And it's pet friendly:)

Room Tip: All rooms have AC, which is a bonus in the HOT Redding summers! The quietest rooms surround the offi...
