We stayed here for the weekend. The hotel was very comfortable, clean and peaceful. The front desk staff was very nice to work with. The restaurant site was delicious for take out and dining in. So nice to have room that come standard with a fridge and microwave. Great hotel for the price. I prefer the Gaia hotel than the... More

This hotel is close off I-5 yet feels very country and quiet considering it's close proximity to I-5. It is within a few miles of the new California State Veterans Home - Redding which is who suggested that I might want to give them a try. The staff is very nice, polite and helpful. The room was large, clean and... More

I would have given this hotel a pure 4 star ratting except for a few designer mistakes to save money. Sorry but I am a critic when it comes to design and food. In this case Gaia hotel designers Skimped on a couple things that really keeps it from a true four star hotel. In your room there are some... More

We stumbled upon this hotel through a Groupon ad, and we're glad we did. We often overnight in the Redding area while traveling between Portland and Southern Cal, and we've been indifferent to the usual hotel offerings in the area. Our stay at the Gaia resort was a very pleasant surprise. The room was huge, well furnished, and spotless. The... More

Stopped here for the night as we were driving the 5 (3rd time) and as before were met with very nice, helpful folks- they were out of dog-friendly rooms but agreed to give us one that was due for a 'deep-cleaning anyway' and it was great. (no idea what the deep-clean referred to as the room looked immaculate to me).... More

Wonderfully accommodating staff! In a word the place is simply relaxing and peaceful. The rooms are a little odd-shaped but that makes for a bigger room on the outside facing wall. It's only 2 stories so you have to either get a ground floor or walk up a flight of stairs, but it's not that bad. We stayed on the... More

A pleasant welcome after a long drive and a quick check-in to a very pleasant room, each block of rooms being in a hexagonal shape. Gardens are pleasant and an attached restaurant/bar is a great asset. Definitely recommend this hotel.

The room was very spacious and comfortable. Love that the rooms have either a balcony or back porch area. Sadly the spa was not working, but we enjoyed walking around the grounds and swimming in the pool.

The Gaia Hotel and Spa could be outstanding but has a long way to go. Problems we experienced were poor check in experience, broken door latches that could have caused security issues, door keys that didn't work and can't forget about the cock roaches found in the room. The amenities were non existent. This was our 6 night on the... More

WE stayed two nights and were pleasantly surprised . the room was really nice. Could have used a little bigger TV( since it is probably 10 ft. from the bed and not enough light to even read by. I understand the green effect. Well kept and the service was excellent.
