I'm going to sum this up. Noisy environment, HORRIBLE WIFI(you have to constantly log on, and signal sucks), sketchy area, and no iron or board. Redding is pretty GHETTO. The service was ok. I won't be coming back to stay in redding.

I stayed three nights here last week. Here goes: PROS * The central location worked well for me. And there are several dining establishments within walking distance. * The price was more than reasonable (which is why I booked it). * The managers (& likely owners) are REALLY nice & accommodating. * The room was clean & had a fridge,...

If you love cleanliness and neatness at an affordable price this is the place to come. Everything was new in the room and the decor very modern. Desk to work, table to eat, fridge and flat screen TV. The outside noise of traffic was the only thing that that I noticed as a negative...but you get that with many hotels.... More

As the Newport Or stay was a bust made the decision to drive back to Reno via California and Redding was a convenient place to break the long journey. Booked if over the net without problem. Easy to find, just a little ways off the Interstate. Checked in was easy, the room on the ground floor with parking outside. Didn't... More

Small room that was dark and fairly close to a train so if you are a light sleeper beware of noise. Their "continental breakfast" was stale Danishes and bad coffee. It's an ok place to sleep one night if you need a cheap, fairly clean place to stay.

This is actually a motel in the downtown core of Redding, it is in walking distance of the Kobe steak house, very convenient for dinner. The motel is bounded on 3 sides by one way streets that tend to make the rooms somewhat noisy depending on the time. The room was clean but basic with a microwave, fridge and coffee... More

The weekend we (a bunch of 6) were there ... there was some kind of fire in town & all the places were booked. We were on a budget & needed the place only to crash. Thunderbird had an offer on Hotels.com & I grabbed it. The place was way better than expected... lovely clean rooms with LCD TV.... very... More

I was just passing thru Redding, en route to Lassen Volcanic Park. I did not want to stay in a chain hotel along the I-5, so I followed the signs to the downtown area. Found this place and while walking to the reception desk, I saw a Trip Advisor sticker on the door, and a plaque on the wall. That's... More

Stayed one night here as we passed through to California. It was perfect for our needs with character. Clean, comfortable, friendly and good breakfast for a more than a reasonable rate. Location was good for on/off the highway. We received a great rate as a walk-in. Upon the recommendation of the owner, we tried a local Italian restaurant two blocks... More

We booked this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews and we would like to thank everyone for helping us find this gem. We really enjoyed the clean, modern, remodeled rooms. The front desk staff was lovely. As a special bonus, the place has a lot of character (great sign!) and is right across the street from a good pub. Redding isn't... More
