Service is attentive. We had a problem with shower plumbing; we were given the key tot he next room to take car of immediate needs and it was fixed by the end of the next day. Our king bed was comfortable. Generally things are "a little tired." Pool is well landscaped and delightful. We have family in the area and... More

I love this motel. I stayed four days on a business trip and did not want to leave. The rooms and grounds were immaculate, staff friendly and helpful. Overall a great place to stay for business or pleasure.

There are places to cook outside, including tables and benches. Each room has a patio with private chairs. The pool and spa were very clean and safely fenced for... More

This is a retro roadside motel that has been lovingly tended, quiet and peaceful with beautiful gardens and a sparkling pool and spa. Our room (a queen) was larger than expected, with a small patio, as well. Nice amenities: free wifi, a small fridge, microwave and coffee maker--even two small bottles of water! The young proprietors are very friendly and... More

This place is tucked away in Paradise, CA. It is an older motel, but the rooms are large and clean and the setting is comfortably rustic. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. We had to leave very early and missed the breakfast. Fortunately, there is a Dutch Bros. coffee kiosk nearby.

On Day one, I noticed that that heater in the shower room did not work (it gets cold here). On Day two around 10pm I noticed that the internet connection was lost,... More

Found this motel browsing the Internet. It was located on our route north so I took the chance and booked two rooms for one night for the family on our Christmas vacation. Wish I could stay longer. Highly recommend it.
