It was one of the most getto place I've ever been. everything is old and dirty. bed had no spings in the mattresses, sheets are dirty, non-smoking rooms full of smoke stinks, doors do not properly close, carpets discustingly filthy. 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.

While this hotel is in the downtown Redding area it is very affordable and provides easy access to several ammenities including two hospitals, several restaurants, and shopping. There is a pool which looks like an inviting place to relax and let the kids play. The service was excellent. Every time I needed something the front desk clerk was more than... More

Rooms were very inexpensive, but obviously paid for what we got. While the rooms were clean, some towels were gray, the motel is in a bad area of town and there were a lot of homeless and such hanging around the facility. The staff were very nice and friendly, but didn't make up for the yelling, running across the roof... More

We stayed here after a very long day of driving (on our way to Washington). The clerk at the front desk was very nice, we got checked in pretty fast. The room was ok for what we needed. I paid a very good price for this room, so I wasnt expecting the Marriott. They had a fridge and microwave, which... More
