Outside looks pretty bad and parking lot has lots of trash and cigarette butts, but inside rooms were clean, cleanest of the budget motels in town. AC was extremely loud, other maintenance lacking, such as first room exterior door would not close or lock, second room shower door difficult to open & close & light bulbs out & not replaced...

If you are a tourist try to avoid Susanville. When the song "California Dreaming" was written I guarantee you it was not written about Susanville. If you stay at this motel. Bring your own earplugs. The people who ran the hotel were nice enough. The hotel was cheap enough.

The only good thing about this place is that it was open late and I had no place else to go. The heat didn't work, the carpet was nasty, the shower didn't look very clean and the shower head was awful. The pocket door to the bathroom was off the track so it had to be manhandled to move it.... More

This definitely not up to par for the price but don't expect much in Susanville anyway. Definitely a blue color lodge but experienced better and worst for $50. Room is clean, water is hot, front desk staff is pleasant (probably owner's spouse or daughter, but it shows its age.
