We stayed at this hotel because it was close to Mercy Hospital. The first problem they didn't want to accept the rate we got and paid for online. They would only give us a room upstairs, my wife uses a cane making it difficult to climb stairs they don't have an elevator. We got in our first room and the...

Very affordable lodging AND pet friendly. I thought the rooms were pretty quiet, I know that there were guests in the nearby rooms, but didn’t hear much, so I thought that that was a big plus. The room was dated for sure, carpets felt a little tacky/sticky, the sink was off of the bathroom, and needed a drain catch, the...

It was our first experience staying at this Motel Chain, NEVER again! My husband and I checked in with pets. Upon walking into our room, #108 the first thing that jumped out at us was the two chairs in our entry way. They looked like something that had been in a hobo camp for years! We lifted the covers on...

The only good thing I have to say that the front desk young lady was very polite and gracious. The room was filthy and when we pulled back the bedding (I was afraid to let the kids sit on the bedspread) three spiders came running out. We pulled the bedding back the rest of the way to find that the...

The inn was located in a very obscure place and difficult to find/get-in/get-out. The room we checked in was a non-smoking but smelled smoking horribly. A lady who had checked in before us was complaining at the front desk about the horrible smoking smell in her non-smoking room as well when we arrived. We saw a pick-up truck driver smoking...

My husband and I stayed at this motel because his veteran's group was having an event near Redding and this was the location all of the others were staying at. Check-in was okay although they wanted a $40 cash deposit if we were paying with cash that would be refunded at check-out. When we got to our room on the...

I used a coupon out of the travel magazine I got at the Oregon/CA border and the room was $43----way below all the other motels. The front desk was very helpful and friendly, and I liked the microwave and refridgerator. The room was clean but dated, comfortable bed and a lot of TV channels. The restaurant adjoining the motel has...

Front desk was friendly and helpful and the room was better than expected, even had a microwave and fridge. There were many cable channels and the bed was comfy. One problem: after an hour of crawling around on the floor, my baby's knees were BLACK! Checked my own feet and sure enough, it looked like I had walked barefoot on...

I booked a night at this hotel but due to unforseen events I wouldn't get to the hotel until 3 or 4am so I inquired about cancelling the room on short notice. I was informed that if I cancelled that I had to pay for the room anyways so I said that we would still need the room for a...
