Living in Nevada, I went to a concert at thunder Valley Casino and wanted to spend the night somewhere in this side of Sacramento so I could get an early headstart back to Nevada in the morning. And I wanted someplace inexpensive, but clean. This was a quaint little basic overnight motel. Very clean with small charms throughout. This will... More

We came here after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and it really is a great motel. The room was very clean with tv, coffee, wi-fi etc as you'd expect. Nothing looked old or shabby. I only gave it 4 stars not 5 because you can hear the traffic, which didn't bother me at all, but it can put some people... More

Needed a room in town. We expected not a lot, but the room exceeded the expectation for a lodging spot on a budget search. We got a nice and clean three queen-size bedroom. It's across the street from pizza spot and a fast food restaurant and adjacent to a tap room. Overall a comfy experience.

I needed to spend a night at the Colfax Motor Lodge recently. Tiny little roadside motel just off Interstate 80 between Sacramento and Reno. My room had a king bed - very comfortable. I was worried about the noise from the freeway and there was none. The room was super clean and the wall heater warmed my room comfortably. Very... More

It is clean - the room, bathroom and linens were all nice and clean. However, with the exception of some bathroom updates, the Colfax Motor Lodge is old and a bit rundown! It is just off Highway 80, which I found very convenient, but the highway noise can be heard in the room. They do not add any special touches... More

The staff was nice. Too pricey for what it is. Shower pan was cracked and leaked. Shower door would not close. Sink was very cracked. Sheets were clean but had holes in them. Overall condition was frumpy at best. No breakfast offered. Only game in town.

I very recently stayed a night at the Colfax Motor Lodge. My room had a comfortable king bed and the cost was $80.00. The room & bath were neat & clean, but nothing really special. Older furnishings in the room. I was told that the room I was in was to get a new carpet within the week. As other... More

I chose this motel for a quick overnight stay on my way to Reno. I was going to arrive fairly late and called ahead. I was glad I did, because by the time I arrived (around 8pm on a Thursday night) all of the rooms were sold out. The parking lot is tight, but there were enough spaces for all... More

This 18-room motel sits right next to the freeway, so it's easy to find, but there is (of course) some traffic noise. The (new) windows block most of it, and when we ran the air conditioner, we hardly heard the traffic at all. Beyond that, the rooms are spotless and well maintained, the staff nice, the grounds cute, and the... More
