Went here based on Trip Advisor reviews. This is an excellent basic motel. Rooms were clean and the owner was helpful with restaurant recommendations. The bed was even comfortable. Pricing was inexpensive, and the value was great.

This was the first stop on a cross-country drive, not a drive I was looking forward to. So my first stop had to be special and a lucky harbinger for the next 5 days. La Mesa did not disappoint. I forgot the time zone we were in when we left, and Mike at the front desk was not only courteous... More

Our one night stay at LaMesa was a highlight of motoring west. Mike took our reservation request and ETA over the phone and welcomed us upon arrival. Our motor court room was cool, clean, and seven steps from our car. We enjoyed our chat with Mike the next morning, as a local history resource. We wish him the best as... More

Haven't stayed here yet but... Based on reviews decided to reserve a room while on a trip we have planned. Called to make a reservation and got the 50's treatment. It went something like this... The gentleman asked me four questions, what date, what's your first name, how many beds do you need, and what's your phone number, ok I'll... More

Feeling nostalgic? This is the place to stay! We knew we were going to be getting there late and I called and talked to a lovely gentleman named Mike. He reserved a double queen room. Got in and it was just as quaint and lovely as the other reviews had said. Super clean with coffee maker, microwave, and a mini... More

Our daughter booked this motel for us and said the owner (Mike) was very accommodating as she was booking it. We were still a few hours out and he said he would call and check on us if her estimate of our arrival time expired. We arrived on time and he was so friendly and helpful that it was almost... More

I recently did a road trip with my 3 YR old whippador. I called LA Mesa for a reservation at the last minute and was greeted by a very friendly and helpful vouce, that agreed to save the last room for me. Upon arrival at Santa Rosa I followed the directions given me and was surprised to find an older... More

Classic Route 66 gem with neon sign. Room was as updated and nice as any mid-range chain hotel. Exceptionally clean, comfortable room and beds. Very quiet. Fantastic value!! Why stay in an ordinary chain when you can experience a nice piece of nostalgia? Mike, the owner (second generation of family ownership) was super-friendly and a great help. Will probably plan...

I was driving back to OK from a multi day river trip in Utah. Looking for a place where my truck with a rafting frame on top of the camper shell would fit. This motel looked like zero problem with the truck parking and I could park right at the door. Owner helped me with the paperwork then opened the... More

We've spent many nights in Santa Rosa over the years, but missed out on this wonderful spot until a couple of weeks ago. Now that we know about the LaMesa, we'il never stay anywhere else! Rooms not huge (choice of 1 or 2 queen beds) but we had plenty of space for everything & found our room & the bed... More
