What a dirty filthy place. Run as fast as you can. Dirty rooms. Terrible service at the desk. Looks like the beds are old as hell. Lady will not refund your money. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND FIND A BETTER PLACE

RUN. RUN AWAY. This hotel is absolutely the worst place I have ever stayed. In addition to horrendous service (wouldn't give me extra towels without complaining!), there was a dead roach in the room, water stains on the walls, the water runs brown, the hot-water knob came off in my hand, the toilet leaked, the whole place smelled, the walls...

Totally disgusting!! Room smelled of mold. Flushed the toilet and water leaked all over the floor. Went to the desk and the jerks handed me a towel and a bucket to catch the leaks!! Then they charged us twice but my bank cancelled the second charge. DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT GOING THERE!

So, we drove all day (15 hrs) made the reservation online, as usual. The lady @ the front would not let me in the lobby (it was after 10 pm, 10:06 to be exact). It was very cold out, I could see my breath! She was not able to locate my reservation at first (which I found odd, considering there... More

My Husband and I visited RedBluff a few weeks ago and stayed American Inn Express and the rooms were clean and neat. Beds were comfortable, Yes the place is old but they are trying real hard to fix it up. Would stay their again the NEW Owners are really trying hard to please. Great price for a overnite stay. Thankyou.

To start with, the motel was empty, which was disconcerting. I asked the woman who checked us in if it was safe, and she shrugged her shoulders and replied that it was a small town. I don't know if she meant that it was safe, or not. The room was VILE. It was dirty. The doors were poorly repaired. The... More

This motel is dirty, rundown, falling apart. Do not stay here. I phoned and emailed Hotwire about the rating, but they insist that it is a two star motel. It is not. I think the photos show what kind of a motel this is.

Reserved a room here for 2 nights and the first thing we saw in the room was a busted door jam, mildew and dead roaches in the bathroom. We asked the owner for another room and he stated that he would give us his 'Best" room. As soon as I turned on the bathroom lights in this 2nd room, there... More
