Every year of my life from the time I was 2 until I was 32 my family would either camp near Childs Meadows or in the very best years, in the cabins of Childs Meadows Resort. Then I saw that it had fallen on very hard times. We were up there last year and it still looked a little rough.... More

I stayed here during the recent Fourth of July weekend. This place isn't really a "resort", I'll admit. But for the price and the proximity to Lassen National Volcanic Park, it's really not a bad place to stay. I stayed in the motel which is very basic and a bit dated, but if you compare it to camping at the... More

I was skeptical after reading some negative reviews, however after realizing that this is a CABIN in a pretty rural area I think this place is wonderful! We had the pleasure of staying in the manufactured cabin with the jacuzzi! The place was adorable! The wood paneling throughout the cabin lent it a cozy warm feeling. There was a jacuzzi... More

This place is cool. Please note, that this is like a step up above camping. The smaller cabins are cute, and quite nice. The larger cabins are great for big groups, but are very rustic. There is little kitchens in the large cabins, and electricity, and little BBQ pits, and also outdoor cooking areas. The smaller cabins have microwaves, and... More

This was a very poor choice for a hotel. A "resort"?? It is in very poor condition. We pd $10.00 extra for each person over 2 and we got towels and not enough plastic glasses for the 4 of us. The carpets were gross, so I always had my flip flops on. The bedspreads are thin and dirty as well... More

Reading all the reviews we were skeptical about how / what this motel would be. We reserved 3 rooms for a weekend and were satisfied with it. Do not expect luxury rooms or TV or internet here, but basic necessity perfectly kept. The rooms were very clean and considering this place in between meadows, there were no insects etc inside...

My sister and I have camped at Childs Meadows twice. We take our R.V., horses and dogs and have a great time. Dottie & Bruce (the owners) and Paul are exceptionally nice people and do everything within their power to accomodate us! The reviews written by some very unkind people are not only untrue (in my opinion) but rude. If... More

I have lived all around the world - third world to first world. This resort is dumps! Anyone who says they enjoyed living here has terrible standards. The hotel owners are also rude and not helpful. Couple of detailed points: - The chateau's stink. The carpets are old and in bad shape. I am sure most of the draperies, comforters... More

I stay at Best Westerns when they're available, but I enjoyed my evening in the room at Childs Meadow, it was different from all that, yet it was clean and the utensils and other items provided in the kitchenette indicated a caring attitude on the owners' part. I didn't shower, so can't address that, but the bathroom was extra clean... More

WHAT A DUMP! Stayed in the motel for 2 long nights. We couldn't sleep the 1st night as our sinuses were too irritated from the mildew & musty smell with no air circulating, as no air conditioning or fan. We thought about forfeiting the money & going somewhere else but was already dark so decided to stick it out. Fortunately... More
