This is a budget hotel for sure, and my expectations were in line with that. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The man at the front desk was really nice and welcoming. That said, we did have a few issues with our room. There was a nasty used washcloth left hanging over the shower rod when we arrived. The bathroom door had a big gouge in it and was warped, making it kind of hard to actually get it to close. The tiles in the bathroom were buckling up from the floor so when you walked on them, you could feel them move beneath you. The room was clean but had a funky smell we couldn't quite place, and it didn't seem to be coming from the air conditioning.
The motel appears to have several long-term guests (ie, people who live here) and when we pulled up and parked, there were lots of people having parties, playing music, etc., so I was anticipating having a noise issue but found that this was not the case and we had a good night's sleep. I would stay here again, but only for a night or so while passing through Redding and only because of the price.
