The Shasta Lake Motel is a wonderful place to stay! We went up a few weeks ago for a quick getaway and we had the best time staying there! The owners are so friendly, honest, and accommodating. They are also pet friendly, so we loved being able to take our dog with us. The grounds were kept very nice and... More

Our stay was just one night on a road trip but we loved the place. Rustic but very clean and friendly! We had a great dinner next door at Alyisons Restaurant on a lovely outdoor patio. They even let our dog on the patio. The Shasta Lake Motel has beautiful grounds to wander with your dog and smell the spring... More

After over 400 miles on my Harley this was a great place to stay on my trip from Portland to San Francisco earlier this month. Run by a nice friendly couple from the bay area, Jay and Stephanie. Nice clean pool and a beautiful, friendly German Shepard named Slate walking around greeting everybody. They made it really easy to check... More

This was the cutest, friendliest, and nicest motel that I've EVER stayed at! We came in late and she gave me a great deal on an awesome room! There was a fully furnished kitchenette with dishes and everything! It has a home away from home feel to it! We will most definitely be back!!

This is a beautiful property, with places to sit and read a book, have a BBQ, play horseshoes and basketball and take a long dip on a hot day. There is plenty of shade with picnic tables and lounge chairs and it is very peaceful. I am from the area and work at home but when my internet down for... More

We were fortunate to find this diamond in the rough! The owners are great and make you feel at home. The rooms are very clean and you have easy access to the outside with chairs waiting for you to sit down and take in the outdoors. I love the cabin feel (decor is old, but that's what makes this place... More

Absolutely no complaints! This is our second year visiting Shasta Lake motel. We love this place and plan to return year after year! The rooms are dated, but clean and extremely accommodating. The owners are so friendly and thoughtful. We couldn't ask for a better stay!

would stop here again given the chance. Lovely hosts, they work constantly on the property. Rooms are clean and quaint, what more do you need? Large pool, great towels, lots of fruit trees and flowers. A real Hacienda feel. Seems to be plenty of room to park your boat as well. Don't settle for any less, it's a bit of... More

There are many good things to say about this motel. We stayed four days when we'd only intended one night. It is far enough from the freeway that traffic noise is faint.There are tall pines and covered places to lounge. The motel is old but very clean and the rooms are cute and individualized. We had a kitchenette and it... More
