I'm really NOT a hotel snob & normally love old places, but this hotel is in DIRE need of maintenance! I realize it's VERY old, but that doesn't mean the owners can't repair the MANY items on the exterior that need help, put on a fresh coat of paint, & fix the problems in the rooms. The screen was missing... More

This is a great location right off Highway 36, just outside Lassen Park. You need to sign in at the store. If closed, go to the restaurant. The rooms are located the opposite direction behind a currently closed gift shop. These older rooms are adequate, but not ADA accessible. Long, sloping walkway up to some stairs that lead up to...

The Lassen Mineral Lodge was a pleasant surprise! you drive up and you don't expect much. But the rooms were clean, quiet and large. Thought the added touch of oversized checkers a neat touch. Nice to not hear the blaring of TV's from adjacent rooms. The little diner was always packed but you felt like you were important to them.... More

The Lassen Mineral Lodge is located very conveniently. It is a short drive to the south entrance of the park. The rooms are spacious and clean. In the bathroom there was not so many space to put your stuff. But we would definitely stay there again.

Family-run old fashion diner & lodge with good food - great for filling your belly before hiking in the mountain air! Full bar too! Don't expect gourmet selections but you'll enjoy the serviceable burgers, chicken tenders and homemade soups!

A basic motel; the only reason this motel is still in business is that it is nearest to Lassen Volcanic, without competitors. We were tricked into a more expensive room, because all the other rooms were supposed to be full. We were about the only guests.

This is a vintage style Motel-Restaurant-General Store-Gift Shop-Bar establishment right out of the 1950’s. I would not have been at all surprised to find a line station wagons piled high with suitcases on the roof parked outside – quite charming in a throwback rustic sort of way. There is free WiFi but it is only available on the porch area... More

The motel is clean, great bed and looks right out of the 60"s (in a pleasant way). The restaurant is homey, good food and quaint atmosphere, with old time saloon piano music drifting through the air. Most enjoyable.

Restaurant food and staff(family) are great. Rooms are dated, but clean. Loaner coffee pots are available if you know to ask. Rooms need screens on all the windows to keep the bugs out. The folks running the general store who also handle the room registrations aren't very friendly or helpful. Thankfully, the young family running the restaurant make up for... More

It is hard to describe the Lassen Mineral Lodge motel, since it is such a set of contrasts. You get the impression that the owners are struggling to make a living in a remote mountain community, which was badly affected by the closure of the ski resort some years ago. Yet it is the only motel close to the southern... More
