For this hotel, you're not getting any more than what you paid for. When I booked, it said it had an outdoor pool, but I guess it was taken out, because now there's an open area that it like a courtyard. The rooms were okay sized. The toilet and shower are separate from the sink and counter, and the toilet... More

Hi, Laney B. Sorry for the confusion regarding a pool. I checked all of the social media sites we control, TripAdvisor, etc, and couldn't find any reference to a pool as an amenity. We use 5 different social media platforms and none that we use list a pool. It would much appreciated if you would comment back where you booked... More

The rooms are great, clean and just as expected. The "breakfast" sucks but the rooms have a fridge so no worries there; although, in room coffee would be nice. They are pet friendly which is the reason I stayed but they have no grass area to walk your dog and the dirt, weed, sticker patch out back is super sketchy... More

Hi, Jennifer Thank you for staying with us! Sorry we don't currently have a grassy area for our animal companions, but please know you were safe in the area behind our motel to walk your pet. Our property shares the parking area with a great restaurant; however, a parkway is not available at this time. We do have coffee at... More

Clean, friendly, pet friendly, HBO, WIFI and organic soaps and shampoo. I stayed in room 215. Coffee and pastry go till 11:00 am... unheard of! Only thing that kept it from getting a 5 was a little road noise but I'm a light sleeper. Would and will definitely stay again!

From the friendly lady at the desk to the large, immaculate, well-maintained room, a welcome surprise after a hard night on the road. Also pet friendly with a very reasonable fee, and the room was very reasonably priced. Only thing I missed was a coffee maker in the room, much more important to me than the fridge and microwave the... More

This is a solid 2-star hotel with amenities as you'd expect. Our room was clean, spacious, and quiet. The wifi was strong. Great water pressure in the shower. I'd stay here again. The only negative was housekeeping knocked very loudly at 9 a.m. From the sounds of it, they go to all the doors, perhaps to get people up and... More

HI, Annie B. Sorry for the overly eager housekeeping staff. You didn't mention if you had the Do Not Disturb placard out, so we hope that you did not and our staff was only proceeding as is the normal to knock before entering any room.

The second leg of our annual trip from Phoenix to Portland included a stop in Susanville. Such a great little town just before heading up the hill into the Modoc Nat'l Forest. We've stayed here several times, but never at the same hotel. It was super busy with motorcycle races and softball tournaments in town, so we were lucky to... More

Greetings, Eric and Kerry. We appreciate the great TripAdvisor review today! Susanville can be a very busy place, especially during the Summer. Our Rails to Trails bike/hike/jog track is a regional favorite. Check out the Biz Johnson Trail next time you're up! We travel with a 130# Great Pyrenees, so we get it too.

Nice place. Very clean. The sweetest lil old lady behind the counter was very friendly and courteous. I will definitely stay here again when we are in this area. If you are a contractor, this is the best place in town. The Mexican restaurant next door has awesome breakfast burritos. Be sure to check them out.

During our annual Corvette cruise, we stayed at this local hotel. It was inexpensive period. The room was clean and free of smoke or pet odors. Beds were OK. It is on the main drag and there were several very loud bikes and cars until after about 1:00 am. No breakfast other than rolls and coffee. Busy place. Seemed like... More

Traveling home from Southern California to Oregon, and decided to stop for the night. Very friendly check in, room was very basic, but clean and quiet. As someone mentioned pillows a bit basic, but had one of my own so not a problem. Right next door to a restaurant so that was convenient.

Very good value. We stayed one night after attending the crab feed at Elks, rather than driving back to Reno. We just were not fond of pillows. Very clean! Felt it was a very good value. Good coffee & hot chocolate, too.

Hi, Kathie. The Elks does such a great job each year with their crab feed, and we're thankful you decided to stay with us. We love our neighbors from Reno! It would be great to know what you didn't exactly like about our pillows. We'd appreciate knowing some specifics so we can correct any issues for which we are unaware.... More
