We loved this cute vintage motel! The owner, Mike, stayed late for our late arrival. When we pulled in at 11 pm, he walked us personally to our rooms and did a sweep of both rooms before inviting us in. He offered to get ice for us and told us to call if there was anything at all we needed,... More

If you "plan to motor west," keep this place on your radar. Owners Mike and Colleen retired from careers in the U.S. Navy in 1998, and took over La Mesa from Mike's dad, who had owned it since the 60's. They've effectively updated the rooms, keeping the feel from the hay day of Route 66, but with the comfort and... More

Decided to book based on reviews here and so glad to find this old Route 66 Hotel. Just stayed overnight but it's so nice to find a decent, affordable place to stay with a wonderful owner. The room was basic but clean and comfortable and perfect for a short trip to Blue Hole. Will definitely stay here again.

We booked a room at this motel based on the reviews here and I'm very glad we did. The owners are two of the nicest people I've met and ready to help with area information,restaurant recommendations, etc. The room was quite large and pristinely clean. The bed was extremely comfortable and even had good pillows (not the flat pathetic pillows... More

First, I need to thank the previous reviewers for taking the time to write a review of La Mesa Motel. This is, truly, a wonderful place to stay in. The owner is a delightful man, with a great sense of humor ;) I called him to reserve a room for the following evening. He took my name and number but... More

We decided to stay overnight in Santa Rosa before going to Blue Hole instead of a long day trip. La Mesa had the best reviews and lived up to its excellent reputation! The room was spacious and super clean. This will be our only place to stay when visiting Santa Rosa!!!!

After reading the reviews on the La Mesa I decided to stop off here on my way to Colorado. I am glad I did. The owner was extremely nice, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I could not ask for a better deal and would recommend this to anyone passing through Santa Rosa.

Stayed in their two room suite and it was absolutely fantastic! Very clean and spacious. Will be staying there again. Cost was great as well and the owner was accommodating. It was very quiet and plenty of room for us to park our uhaul trailer as well as right down the street from great restaurants.

Traveling from Utah back to Houston with 2 teenage grandsons. Our grandsons' first response when we pulled in was "is this the Bates Motel"!! Ha! However, we all just spent the night at this wonderful motel on the mother road. When I made our reservation the owner called me while on his vacation and had his sister(who was covering while...

This is a family-owned motel. Kathy the owner's sister is very warm and nice. The style, the neon, the sign and if you walk around back the view are classic. Most of the room is clean, BUT the carpets are gross, the bathtub/shower doesn't drain (standing in dirty water is gross. The chair needs cleaning - looks and feels gross.... More

Sorry you had a bad experience at my motel. I am the one who makes sure all the rooms are clean and ready to rent. I have been on vacation the last 10 days and it is plain to see some of the things that I take care of was not done. I inspect all rooms before they are rented... More
