I am a very fussy hotel guest. I've reviewed a number of hotels on tripadvisor (paso robles, ca hampton, hilton garden inn, san mateo, ca and others).
On a lark, I drove to susanville, ca. I had seen this hotel from the outside before and it looked nice. I drove up without a reservation and got a room at 11 am without more than 20 minutes wait.
The room (146) was clean, quiet, and had what I really appreciate in a hotel room: A comfortable RECLINER chair (similiar to la-z-boy).
The bathtub/shower had a large grab bar (more useful for tub than shower, but good nonetheless and this was a normal room, not a special room)
Windows open, with special lock to limit travel. TV worked well, decent selection of cable tv stations. Front Desk staff helpful and polite. Small bakery/restaurant on property was good enough for pie and sandwich. Free breakfast offered but not utilized.
I drove by the other hotels in town and they were not nearly as nice (in a pinch the super 8 might have been my next choice, but I didn't look too closely)
Within 1 mile, a Safeway supermarket, Walmart, Starbucks, Ace hardware. The town itself is the gateway to many interesting spots on the eastern side of the sierra/lassen mountain range. Do not expect a shopping mall. At least 2 movie theatres in town. nearby susanville airport for light aircraft with some military hardware on display.
Vending/ ice machines near my room could not be heard. The entire facility is NON smoking rooms and you must sign a pledge for that...HOORAY!
I have stayed in hamptons, courtyard marriot/residence inn, fairfield inn, hilton garden inn, holiday inn and express...this hotel is equal or better than all for the above reasons. It has also opened my eyes to non-chain hotels. though I would always check the rooms out before deciding.
