As we were driving from Tyler, TX to Los Angeles, CA it became time to stop for the night. I checked Tripadvisor and saw this motel had great reviews, so I called ahead to ask about securing a room. The owner answered and said, "Sure. I have a room with two beds for tonight." I drove up and had a... More

We were looking for a reasonable and clean room between Tucamari, NM and Santa Rosa for a somewhat late check in at 6:30 pm. The front desk clerk was friendly and accommodating when I asked for a clean room with 2 beds for my son and myself. Checking the room we backed out of it after noticing black bugs on... More

Superior service!! Renovated rooms in a classic Route 66 motel. Mike was fantastic walked with us to our rooms to make sure everything was okay. Brought ice to us as well as extra towels before he went home for the night. Gave us his personal number, and insisted we call if there was anything we needed. Be aware!! This is... More

I've stayed in Santa Rosa many times while scuba diving at the Blue Hole or Perch Lake but this was my first experience staying at La Mesa. I just wish I would've found out about Mike and the La Mesa Motel earlier in my scuba diving hobby. The room rate was great, the beds were comfortable and the room was... More

I was a bit leery not going with a national chain, but needn't have worried. The La Mesa Motel deserves its #1 ranking in Santa Rosa, for a reason. Several, actually. First, Mike takes reservations by first name. Second, the place is immaculate. Mike and crew have restored the rooms to like new condition. Even more impressive is the quality... More

My dad told me we were staying at this hotel and I was skeptical! The hotel was super clean and cozy! I was pleasantly surprised and loved it! I would recommend staying here! The owner was very informative and suggested places to eat.

First,My wife and I planned a cross country motorcycle trip. she was somewhat reluctant to let me book the motels because I tend to be somewhat frugal in my choices. Little does she know that I rely on TripAdvisor to help with my decisions. My requirements were simple, a clean motel, an affordable price and able to park the bike... More

I started not to write a review on this place, just because I would only be re-iterating what everyone has already said - it's a great little motel, with a great price. However, I wanted to add this... When we first drove up to this place about mid-afternoon, there was not another car on the place. My husband looked at... More

This is definitely a find. I wouldn't have stopped there if it had not been for previous Trip Advisor ratings. This is an old Route 66 motel with no tacky Route 66 extras. It is family owned by Mike (who even went and got us ice when we checked in.) It's extremely clean (even under the bed) with the bathroom... More

Chose this place based on the reviews. The reviews did not steer us wrong. After a long day driving, this was a very restful place and for the right price. This place offers a Route 66 feel and we had no worries staying overnight at this motel. If you have time, go see the Blue Hole.
