“Very Comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

I see a few poor reviews here, not sure what they expect in city of 3,000 people and for this price point. I was very comfortable here. Visited Burney for a few days of fishing. Spent 4 nights, arrived without reservation, but had no trouble at office with getting a room although both motels are very busy. I asked first about Green Gables simply because it looked nicer from the road, but it was full as it only has a few rooms....Charm turned out to be the better place anyway. Staff was wonderful with me, informative, friendly, helpful. Room was older, but extremely clean, spacious and comfortable. Small fridge, microwave, and coffee pot in room, also a rather large TV. Lots of regular customers at this place, kind of a friendly neighborhood spot. Hope to get back to Burney this fall, and will head right back to Charm. Hope this helps.....

Basic, clean, and friendly; I enjoyed having a place to rest, and didn't worry about walking on the carpet in bare feet. Burney is a small town that covers the basics. This hotel also covers the basics. I really enjoyed being able to open the window in the bathroom, and the window in the main room to get a fresh cross-breeze. Room for improvement: It would be nice if they had a vending machine.

My husband I stayed at the Charm? Motel. We made our reservations back in February, and when we got there we wanted to pay with cash, we were told at this time we had to give them a refundable $100.00 on top of our motel fee. We are in our middle 60's and drive a 2011 car, no where on their site that I looked at said anything about a $100 refundable fee. If we put the amount on our credit card no fee?. When you check out if you pay cash they want you to let them make sure you didn't trash anything. So the next morning after having paid with a credit card I still made them come and check out the room and see that I didn't steal there old TV and check out that I didn't steal their towels. She also had to write me a note stating the room was ok. Not my most favorite experience.

Room Tip: Go to Susanville.

We stayed here while visiting Burney Falls on a family road trip. The motel was clean and very basic with exterior corridors. The TV was a small tube set- no flat screens here. They did provide a fairly weak free WI-FI. Breakfast was provided at the main office- very simple fare- oatmeal packets, bars, etc. Overall, a decent place to stay in a small town.

Stayed here last week. We were 3 adults with two queen beds, think they were actually doubles, seemed small to us. However, It was better than the hotel next door (Green Gables).

We drove in and met Jackie, the manager. She was about as friendly as a grouchy bear. Should have known when I talked to Jackie on the phone making the reservation. I asked for an email confirmation but they don't have a computer!! The office and "continental breakfast" is located between the two hotels that they own. So that is where you check in and have "breakfast". She was not friendly at check in either, all business and distracted...felt like I was intruding. NO help with sight weeing, etc. The other young lady however picked up the slack and smiled and helped us out later. We were given a green piece of paper with a phone number to call if there was excessive noise after 10:00 p.m.
Our room we was a corner room on the far right of the second floor on the back of the property.
The room was spacious, but smelled very horribly of Fabreeze, it was over whelming, even after opening the window. The shower was funky and awkward, no tub. The TV was old and small, but worked. Nice to have a microwave and refrigerator and laundry facilities. Air conditioning was noisy. Carpet and decor were very dated and worn and a dead fly was left on the bathroom floor even after maid service.
No pool or jacuzzi. Breakfast was granola bars, packaged oat meal and cheap danish... We suggest that you eat at the BLACKBERRY PATCH, great food at great prices!
SCARY: The guys in two rooms down stairs were partying outside the room and also sitting in front of the room smoking pot and cigarets and were wearing nothing but towels around them and still showing everything. SCARY and CREEPY!
Avoid if you can...

Room Tip: Get an upstairs corner room, ask for a tub, bring information about attractions, eat at the Black be...

Not many choices in Burney which is a great spot to access nearby waters. The place is not very charming (drab) but very clean and functional. Beds were comfortable and they had a great laundry. Kitchen was small but worked. Note that the refrigirator is small (think RV size). The office staff is friendly and very helpful. If you do not need a kitchen go to the Green Gables owned by the same outfit.

We've stayed here many times and it's a great place to stay, especially if you're fishing nearby like we do. There is a fish cleaning table with running water and there is an ice machine to fill your ice box with to keep your fresh fish cold until you get back home. Not fancy, but it's comfortable.
