Stayed here for 2 nights while on a road trip. The owner was very friendly on the phone and in person when we checked in. This is a classic 1950's, 60's motel that is nicely maintained. The queen room was large with a table and chairs, fridg, and microwave. The bathroom was old fashioned, but very clean. Air conditioner worked...

Rude staff member answered the phone. I asked for Vacancies he asked how many adults and if I had any pets. I said I had cats and he just hung up on me. I was referred to this hotel because I thought they said they are pet friendly, Regardless Before I could make other arrangements for my pets I didnt...

Stayed here last week for the frog jumping competitions at the fair here. Great location for that, and anything else around that area! Old 50's-style, one story motel, park right in front of your room. The gal at the desk was friendly. The room was nice-sized and had a microwave, mini fridge, flat screen t.v. with cable. It was comfortable...

You know you're in trouble when you turn on the water in the bathroom sink and the result is a trickle. I unscrewed the aerator and cleaned out a bunch of ick, replaced it and voila!, water actually flowed. That little scenario sums up the maintenence regimen for the Jumping Frog. The bathroom was a plethora of small repairs that...

We stayed here because it was centrally located and the price was right. Nothing fancy but the room fit the bill for us. Walked to great pizza place across the street. Grocery store within walking too for late night sweets and milk. Room had fridge and microwave which allowed us flexibilty to be even more frugal if we so desired....

I loved that this motel is close to the main road but not right on it so the traffic noise was minimal. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the managers are accommodating. It's one of those older mom and pop type motels which I enjoy experiencing, including the retro tile in the shower which had no mold/mildew. It did...

This is an older style motel that gives you everything as advertised. This is my second stay at the Jumping Frog. The internet worked wonderfully and the TV offered a wide selection of programs. If you are looking for the modern cookie cutter motel stay elsewhere. The rooms are clean and small but for a single person they are great....

big clean room for folks that are just traveling. Next to the high school so got in a lovely morning walk as well. Nothing fancy, just safe road stop while seeing the area. Suggest reservations for weekends or busy summertimes. It seems to fill up fast. Also near a small mall that has the AM coffee and groceries as well....

This place had such a cute name, in a simple setting with a small lawn in the middle, that we made a point of trying to spend a night here while attending the Calaveras County Fair & Jumping Frog Jubilee (fun!). Our first night in Angels Camp was spent at the Travelodge (previously reviewed and usually our first choice), but...

I'm rating "Average" because the pluses and minuses basically even out. This was the only booking I could get for Angels Camp's big party, the annual frog jump. I think rates may have been jacked up for that. For me, this motel had what I like - old style drive up to your room, and windows that open (and don't...
