If you're passing through town late at night and plan to get up and go first thing in the morning, this will do, but for anything more than that I would stay away. The cleanliness was acceptable, barely, the bed was comfortable, and the staff was friendly, but after that most features were sub-standard. Our non-smoking room was next door... More

any other reivew on this site that says otherwise is fake, period. This is the worst place I have ever stayed. Homeless roam the parking lot at night. The rooms are beyond gross, they smell. We changed rooms 3x. It was 2am we had no choice but to stay. Worst experience ever in a hotel. DO NOT STAY HERE

Everything at its worst, you name it. Groups of drunken people IN the property at 4am. We arrived late in... More

Stayed here 6 years ago, it was 10x better. This time Redding Police were at the room next door to us twice in 2 days. It was FILTHY, had to wash my daughter's feet twice in one evening just from walking on the carpet. Curtains were hanging off the rod at both ends. The grounds, parking lot, rooms, office area,...

This place is not even worth a rating! We stayed one night on our way South. The bed was terrible....mattress very thin and pillows were hard. Didn't sleep at all! The bathroom was so dirty, that I could even want or take a shower! Black mold around the edges of the tub, etc. Very noisy with people walking around at... More

First of all - the staff was really nice:) The rest.. Not so good! Stayed here for 1 night. Our room was ok.. Not so clean, not so big and not so nice.. But it was ok! We got a bed for the night, and a shower in the morning, only for $43. Will not stay here again!

I feel a bit guilty about the poor rating because the staff was very accommodating; still, I am rating the hotel not the people. With that said, what a dump. Supposedly, this place was the nicest of all the dumps (I'd hate to see the other places!) Not only is the building in shambles, but the neighborhood itself seems a... More

We stayed at the hotel 8 months ago. It was quiet and comfortable for our 2 nights stay. This time around I must say, this place is a dive! Bags of trash in the parking lot left by staff. The beds were uncomfortable...to the point of causing pain, and the bath towels smelled funky, like no detergent was used. Loud... More

My family and i travel too redding a few times a year, We stay at this hotel every time. The staff are friendly its very affordable and my room is always ready and clean. The pool makes it fun for the family in the summer cause it can get hot in California. I would recommend this hotel too anyone.
