This is a well-kept, clean, comfortable older motel, set back from the road in a court shaded by beautiful old cedars and oaks. The staff was very friendly and helpful and our room was pet-friendly. It's close to the downtown area of Dunsmuir, a charming little town with some great restaurants to choose from. We will definitely return!

I had been up here training for the past couple weeks and needed a room for the last week that I was up here. We have two dogs and they were very accommodating. I realized after checking in that they offered family suites. I asked if they could switch rooms for us. They were able to get this done for... More

The room was quiet and clean, as always. We enjoy stopping here because of the old fashioned design of this facility. We especially enjoy watching the birds in the large aviary and the Koi Pond. It is always a nice and family friendly place, although on thus occasion it was just my wife and me. There is a nice outdoor... More

Dunsmuir looked like an interesting, out of the way, town after a full-day's drive and Cedar Lodge reminded me of motels I stayed in decades ago. Owners Jordan and her husband maintain a neat property with clean and comfortables rooms; quite different than the typical brand hotels today. We stayed in room 6, then drove late in order to stay...

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
