“A Gem in McCloud”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

If you are traveling in the Mt. Shasta area, you must stay at the Mercantile! It doesn't get any better than this. The mercantile has been beautifully updated but remains true to style and the old architecture is wonderful. The Mathis family couldn't be more welcoming and the general store has wonderful merchandise. (And the candy store, the ice cream shop, the bookstore, & cafe...) Only problem is it's such a hard place to leave!

The rooms are gorgeous! I cute little town were you can take a step back in time and enjoy a simpler time. The staff were helpful and accommodating. I can't wait to go back in the summer.

The breakfast was delicious with friendly staff. Nice stores and people in the town too.

This was the best Christmas we've had in ages. We decided to get out of the city for Christmas and didn't want Tahoe, so we stumbled upon McCould and found magic. There were so many beautiful attributes to this inn, the people and the town. The Mathis family made us feel like we were home and we all cooked Christmas dinner together and had a big group of locals and guests for a evening we will never forget. Simply perfection.

Room Tip: We were in the Founders room and it was the best room I have ever stayed in.

We stayed in the hotel as part of getting our daughter married in McCloud. Our family had most of the rooms in the hotel which made it really fun. We had our daughters reception in the large upstairs room in the Mercantile. The owners were very helpful and accommodating to us and our group. It really was an A+ experience. There also was a breakfast credit as part of the room and the food in the cafe was very good. The portions were large and the food appetizing.

Great place to stay - our room was picture postcard perfect and very comfortable indeed. The Mathis family made us feel very welcome with great ideas of places to go and eat and walks we could take. Breakfast in the diner is also a great treat.

Room Tip: All rooms look fantastic, all are different so picking one out would be impossible

I received this review from one of my clients who recently stayed at the McCloud Mercantile Hotel 02OCT2012 and was completely blown away by the customer sevice,warmth and appreciation given by Kevin and Darlene. I knew when I spoke w/him on the phone that it woud be an awesome experience and he proved me right!

If you are heading up near Shasta, stay in the McCloud Mercantile Hotel. You will be graciously welcomed by Darlene and Kevin who manage the hotel, store and do all sorts of things. They are extremely helpful and very accessible and care about your well-being.

We stayed for 3 nights in the 1940's room which is spacious and comfortable. Very clean. Includes a large whirlpool tub. Bathroom is spacious and the fluffy towels just right. Beds are perfect. After an active day and bath or shower, you will sink into sweet comfort. Breakfast is included. Try the breakfast burrito at the Morning Star Cafe just behind the store.

I very much hope to return. I feel like I brought back some of the good feelings from our stay at the McCloud Mercantile Hotel.

You will love the infinite forests in the area. Hiking trails are a short drive from the Mercantile. Drive to the falls and hike around. Also, you will want to walk through the town of McCloud full of history. Read about the history in the McCloud binder found in the sitting room near the small kitchenette, common area. Kevin and Darlene are happy to make suggestions for your outings.

We were with a large group of friends staying in varying rooms and B&B's in McCloud. My husband and I were upgraded, I think because of a reservation problem that had to do with another client. We had been booked in the pet room and didn't have a pet, hence, they switched us...is what I believe happened and our upgrade was the kind of room where you wanted to stay at least TWO nights, but we only had the luxury of staying one. The owners were extremely accommodating. Price of room included a $20.00 credit to a couple of cafes in the same building. Our breakfast was delicious. There is "nothing" to do in McCloud which makes it a great getaway from everyday life. The small selection of shops are good. The local restaurant, The Lodge, excelled at accommodating our large group on short notice. We have no negatives about our stay at the McCloud Mercantile Hotel.

Room Tip: This very old historic hotel has been remodeled and does have an elevator! There are no coffeepots...
