Me and my family had a wonderful stay. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The gardens were beautiful. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. The price is amazing, I would recommend ponderosa gardens to anyone.

The Paradise Gardens Motel in which my wife and I have stayed in for a total of five visits each up to a week in duration over the last 6 months ihave been uniformly excellent. The Ponderosa Gardens Motel is equal in quality and service to the Best Western in Oakhurst, Ca. for those of you who have been to... More

Here for just one night, we were happy we'd followed the recommendation of friends to stay at the Ponderosa instead of a chain motel. The grounds are attractive, with picnic tables, and the units are attached but have the feel of cabins. We asked for a handicapped accessible room as I'm using crutches, and found it large enough to maneuver... More

My dad is in assisted living in Paradise, so we've stayed at the Ponderosa Gardens many times over the last 10 years. It's been sort of a family tradition, and we've enjoyed the family atmosphere along with the lovely setting. When we stayed there in February this year (2014), we questioned why we came back, and vowed not to return.... More

Setting is wonderful. Back from road and nestled in a wooded area. Rooms are large but slightly worn. TV received only one channel, despite best efforts of motel staff. We traveled with a dog so there was a $10 fee. The entire bill would have been more than $100, except for a discount we received because of the TV problem.... More

The photos of the motel are accurate and I had high expectations for this motel. The grounds are lovely. However, the room was clean but rather stark and worn around the edges--light bulbs were out in the bathroom, one of the two doors to the bath did not open, the continental breakfast is no where near what is found at...

I was in Paradise to help a dear friend celebrate her 60th birthday. I had stayed one other time in Paradise in a more generic property and was determined not to have to return to that location. I looked online and found this motel. I loved it. It was quiet and clean and the rooms were big and comfy and... More

We stayed here for one night over the Labor Day weekend. We checked in late (around 5 pm) and checked out early (6am) so we really did not spend a lot of time here as we were here to do some fishing at nearby Lake Oroville. Check-in staff person was pleasant and helpful. Grounds were clean and inviting. Our room... More

This hotel could be so much more. The landscaping is beautiful. So is the whole town. The breakfast milk stays out all morning without refrigeration. The breakfast pastries appear to have come from the bread isle of a local grocery store. If you like them, it appears you will be able to enjoy the very same opened package for as... More
