I needed to spend a night at the Colfax Motor Lodge recently. Tiny little roadside motel just off Interstate 80 between Sacramento and Reno. My room had a king bed - very comfortable. I was worried about the noise from the freeway and there was none. The room was super clean and the wall heater warmed my room comfortably. Very... More

It is clean - the room, bathroom and linens were all nice and clean. However, with the exception of some bathroom updates, the Colfax Motor Lodge is old and a bit rundown! It is just off Highway 80, which I found very convenient, but the highway noise can be heard in the room. They do not add any special touches... More

The staff was nice. Too pricey for what it is. Shower pan was cracked and leaked. Shower door would not close. Sink was very cracked. Sheets were clean but had holes in them. Overall condition was frumpy at best. No breakfast offered. Only game in town.

BEWARE: WORD HAS IT THE PROPERTY WILL HAVE NEW OWNERS, and will not be "American Owned and operated." EXERCISE CAUTION BEFORE CHECKING IN. As the only motel in a small town in the Serrias, this motel, while old and somewhat spartian, has a lot going for it. It has all the essentials: decent sized rooms (mine was a king), ice... More

I very recently stayed a night at the Colfax Motor Lodge. My room had a comfortable king bed and the cost was $80.00. The room & bath were neat & clean, but nothing really special. Older furnishings in the room. I was told that the room I was in was to get a new carpet within the week. As other... More

I chose this motel for a quick overnight stay on my way to Reno. I was going to arrive fairly late and called ahead. I was glad I did, because by the time I arrived (around 8pm on a Thursday night) all of the rooms were sold out. The parking lot is tight, but there were enough spaces for all... More

This 18-room motel sits right next to the freeway, so it's easy to find, but there is (of course) some traffic noise. The (new) windows block most of it, and when we ran the air conditioner, we hardly heard the traffic at all. Beyond that, the rooms are spotless and well maintained, the staff nice, the grounds cute, and the... More

I've stayed in the Colfax Motor Lodge on many occasions. The motel has been remodeled in recent years. The rooms are modest and clean. Because the motel is right next to the freeway the truck noise could bother some people. When I stay there I run the air conditioner and it doesn't bother me. If you are on your way... More

We spent a night at the Colfax Motor Lodge a few months after the new folks took over. When we found that the TV remote for our room was dead, they replaced the battery instantly. Room was nice, if a little old-fashioned (sink outside the bathroom next to the front door). The lodge is a few blocks from the business... More
