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

We researched lodgings from Weed to Redding and fortunately picked the Cedar Lodge Motel in beautiful Dunsmuir. On the outside it is a classical old motel. Inside it is all new. The prices were well bellow those of the nicer chain motels and though there was no free breakfast, nearby Yaks on the 5 is a great breakfast option. The... More

I travel to Dunsmuir frequently to fly fish and have been staying at the Cedar Lodge for years. I only use the room to sleep in and the Cedar was a good price for a basic room. However, at one point the ownership changed hands and the place became a little, um, neglected, to put it mildly. Consequently I took... More

I always prefer a nice locally owned motel and this one is lovely. The owners are very friendly. Rooms are clean and rates very reasonable. Happy for all the extras like free wifi, microwave and fridge, nice furniture, good bed and really nice towels! This a great little town for a mini vacation, especially if you like to hike.

Yes, the rooms are clean and cozy, but the bed is what makes it special. So comfortable for a quiet, good night's sleep. What a find! Pleasant, helpful inn keeper and pet friendly too! Dunsmuir was an unexpected treat on the last leg of our trip. Great restaurants and friendly service. We will return to explore more of the area.

We came to Dunsmuir for the fishing and the Cedar Lodge met our needs perfectly. Very cozy, quiet setting, affordable, very clean, extremely comfortable beds and the hospitality from Sylvia and Mike is second to none.

We started staying at the Cedar Lodge many years ago when Mike and Sylvia first ran it. We continued to stop there on our way to Seattle during the years when other people ran it.....and ran it downwards. Mike and Sylvia came back and rescued it and are improving the rooms etc. It is a charming spot in the small... More

We were driving down the west coast from Portland to LA and starting to look for somewhere to stay as it was getting late in the day. Exactly what we were looking for, clean comfortable room not far from the I5. Thanks Claire and Jack
