Short gorgeous winding-road drive off I-5 to the Dunsmuir Lodge, looking like the motels of my 1960's youth. Pleasant curb appeal, affordable rates, free Wifi. Eric the owner was funny, warm and offered just enough information without overload for a bleary-eyed traveler. Turned room key and found the most un-generic darling motel room: four-poster big pine bed with granny quilt,... More

easy check-in; quiet, peaceful, comfortable. lodge is set up in a U-shape with the two ends (office and maintenance area) on the main street. we stayed in a double suite on the northeast corner, overlooking the river. we love that all the important "stuff" is taken care of (comfortable beds, quiet, bathing facilities), but nothing "fancy" to make us feel...

I read a few of the reviews & would just like to comment that you're not going to get the Ramada in a community of 600 people! Come on people give these type of establishments the credit they're due for the effort they put in, The Dunsmuir Lodge was a "we're tired, let's get a room" stop for us &... More

We stopped here because it's in the mountains. Found the owner to be friendly and helpful. Motel is older with no free breakfast. Could probably use some updating. The beds were comfortable. It was super quite and the air is fresh and clear. Not your corporate establishment.

I stayed here because I needed a place to stay driving to LA. I arrived at about midnight and had to ring the buzzer to get someone to come to the desk, out pops this older guy who was not exactly happy to have my business. After apologizing to him about the hour I went into my room. The room... More

I always check Trip Advisor before booking lodging or anything for that matter....trusted you all on this one. Well, here is my review: i thought this is the perfect location to stop on our way back to Oregon. We have a Basset Hound - who is an awesome, quiet dog who is cleaner than most people, DOG friendly, great! The... More

Dunsmuir L, Owner at Dunsmuir Lodge, responded to this review

As one of the owners I would like to respond, 1- we have 4 rooms at a lower rate of $59.00 plus tax. One would need to make a reservation to hold at that price. 2- We review the heater setup with everyone who checks in, if you have a problem please call the office. 3- We do charge $10.00... More

These guys are great. I stayed here 2 years ago and again needed help from these folks even though I was not staying there this time. They were most accommodating and helpful. They allowed me to leave my car with them for an extended time while I went on a hike of the Pacific Crest Trail, for a very nominal... More

Room was nicely done , wifi was great. Water pressure in shower was awesome! Easy walking to downtown Dunsmuir. Folks at check-in and check out were very pleasant. Log frame beds a little challenging to get in and out of, especially in the night.

We were so tired and could not make our destination of Crater Lake in reasonable time so The Lodge was a great find for us weary travellers. I agree with the comments of javaandjazz, great value at about $80. I would add that the wi-fi works really well which has not always been the case for us in motels of... More

Found this place using tripadvisor on our way back down towards the napa valley. It's very charming and quaint. A room with a king bed came to $75. It's clean and comfortable. You can't go wrong. The room has a small coffee maker, 20" tv, small table and chairs. The log bed is fun. It's very convenient and right off... More
