Excellent for what it is: a motel (not a hotel). Affordable, clean, and safe, with friendly folks running it. Dorris, CA is a bit noisy with trains and trucks, but that's not the motel's fault. The motel is a mere 4 minutes from The Lower Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge (and 8 minutes from the best spot to view bald... More

Looking at the room price I was expecting may be stained carpet, rundown room, bathrooms etc... But decided to stay anyway as it's close to the wildlife refuges where I wanted to take photos of bald eagles. Now I am glad I made that decision. My experience was nothing like I imagined. The room was way better than the rooms... More

Clean, although a bit shopworn. I would stay there again (and will) for local pursuits. Hospitality House Inn for prime Rib dinner Breakfast across the border or in Merrill Or.

Don't be fooled by the half decent looking photo on their website. Dreadful place, disinterested staff, stick to your feet carpets, shower only designed for people under about 5'2", horrible decor, paper thin walls and worst of all filled with loud, fighting, drunk and then snoring truckers. Stay here and forget about sleeping.

Good, clean motel, good sized room. Room had microwave and coffeemaker. Minimal breakfast provided but for the price can't complain. A general store across the road provided all we needed. Pleanty of eating places in town. Trains pass through Dorris during the night sounding their horns as they go - very noisy. Some guests left (noisily) early in the morning.
