Room I had reserved was waiting as promised. We were taken to our room and ice was promptly brought to our room. Proprietor was very nice and helpful. I will definitely stay here again the next time I get to travel to Santa Rosa!

After reading all the great reviews, I decided to book 2 double rooms for our family of 4. Our teens have never stayed in a motel like this before, so it was fun for my husband and I to show them the kinds of places we stayed at when we were kids on our own family vacations. The La Mesa... More

Awesome experience and memorbable. Growing up we stayed at places like this and it brought back great memories of the roadside motels and it was even better because we were on Route 66! The neon lights were really neat to see as well

Prompt, friendly check in service by calling cell phone for Mike, the manager. The room was spotless and met our needs with comfortable beds, refrigerator & microwave. Bathroom small, typical of the time it was built, now fully modern fixtures. Good wifi. I'll stop here again, and will recommend it to friends--it's the best I've found in Santa Rosa.

It was so refreshing to have such great service at the La Mesa Motel. All of the good things mentioned by other reviewers are true. A spotless, motel room, comfy bed, reservations taken using my first name only- all true. We had a restful night's sleep and after checking out, and heading to a nearby restaurant for breakfast, we received... More

If you are looking for a conference center, workout room with 1 treadmill that doesn't work, and a pool you won't swim in; this isn't the motel for you. However, if your priorities are a clean, well maintained room, comfortable beds and a reasonable price; this is the place for you. I wish you could find places like this everywhere.

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
