The motel looks old and bit run down, but don't let that fool you. The motel could use some paint, but the rooms have been re-done and are clean with fresh decors and the beds are comfy. Each room has refrigerator and a nicely sized bathroom with tub/shower. The staff is uniformly friendly and helpful. Just a short walk down... More

Cedar Lodge is a small family run motel. It is definitely old school but well kept. The room was small but comfortable and clean. The bed was a bit stiff and the pillows very plump. It was cool enough to leave the window open but air conditioning was available. There is an aviary on the grounds and some outdoor sitting... More

As others have noted, it's old and funky. But the owners (?) are friendly, welcoming, and helpful (Jordan for example). And the room was clean, decent paint, and big enough with a queen bed. There were 2 sitting chairs & a table. A frig & micro & coffee-maker, AC. The bath towels were much better quality than most lower-priced motels.... More

After staying in a series of corporate, generic hotels, this was a pleasure. Family-owned with two generations taking care of things. Dog-friendly (they don't mention this on their website, and I didn't find them on any of the pet-friendly websites. They REALLY need to fix this.) The place is old and homey. A/C works well. Fridge and microwave. Clean rooms.... More

We stayed for one night while on business for Dogwood Daze this year. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I loved the rustic aspect of the motel with all the old wagon wheels, flowerbeds and even a BBQ area. The room was very clean and comfortable. I loved the big fluffy towels and great water pressure too. We will be... More

We stayed at the Cedar Lodge Motel in Dunsmuir for two nights on a trip to Mt. Shasta McCloud for the Mushroom Festival and to enjoy bicycling in the area. Sylvia was really friendly and helpful to us- bringing bowls in the morning for cereal, explaining how to hike to the Hedge Creek Falls Trail, and making suggestions for interesting... More

We stopped at the Cedar Lodge Motel as we were heading south on I-5. The Motel was comfortable and clean and the staff was friendly. I tend to eschew chain motels and like the charm of the older motor motels. Of course, my ideal would be to go to a vintage motel that has the vintage charm inside and out... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Cedar Lodge Motel while on a geocaching adventure in the McCloud area of the Shasta forest. It served as a nice base for our fun. Owners and reception staff were nice and helpful. Rooms are very clean, on the old side but they fit our needs perfectly. Rates are good value. Rooms have refrigerators,... More
