“One step above camping”
Reviewed August 20, 2011

Because this had an indoor bathroom it wasn't camping, but didn't beat it by much. Having not been road travelers before this road trip to Oregon, we didn't realize that we should ask to see the room before paying if I have any doubt about the property. It said econo lodge on the awing so I thought I was alright. After we paid (the man was very nice by the way) he said that they hadn't been econo lodge for a while. We found our room around the corner from the office across from the stair way going upstairs. The room was small, stuffy, dirty carpet, worn bedspread, light next to bed didn't work, drape above bed falling down, ring around shower head falling off............You get the picture. Needless to say, we didn't sleep well and were out of there by 7:30 the next morning. The rate was $69.00 but before getting a room, check it out first.

We paid $69, which given the quality of fixtures and fittings (vs. say a Motel 6), was a bit over the odds, but then again, it was well situated in Mt. Shatsa, close to a couple of restaurants (and there aren't many in town that we could see). Guy on the front desk was incredibly polite and helpful and it served a purpose. Internet worked fine and for a one night stay did a job. Would I stay there again? I would try somewhere else if I could get the same room price, but if not, yes. Wouldn't want to stay there more than a couple of nights, mind.

My experience got off to a bad start as the reservation that I made was not found by the desk clerk. I indicated that I made the reservation on the Econolodge web site and she nonchalantly replied that she did not know how to log in to the computer to retrieve on-line reservations. Unbelievable! Luckily I was there during a weekday so they had a room available. The room was an average 2* motel room. It was a clean, large upstairs room with a queen bed and a twin bed. It had a lot of amenities: microwave, refrigerator, cable TV, phone, coffee maker, and shampoo. They provide a continental breakfast but it consists of a bag with a packaged pastry and orange juice that you get when checking in. The room was quiet at night but traffic on the main road starts early in the morning and might wake you up. All of the rooms in the motel are fairly close to the road. I only paid $40 for the room which made it a great value and made it easy to overlook the problems with my stay.

  • Tips/Secrets — You'll probably find the best rates on their web site but be sure to call them to check if they have your reservation.

We happened to stay at the EconoLodge as our car broke down just in front of it, and we were lucky enough to find - next door !!!- a devoted small garage who made incredible efforts to help us.
A sort of fairy tale ! We spent 3 days there walking the streets of Mt Shasta, a wonderful community (I especially recommend the Berryvale Whole Foods store with its excellent lunch counter).
And what a view !!!
Well the EconoLodge is more or less OK, real old and dirty looking on the outside, but inside it offers interesting features for a family stay and it has a pool. Its rates ($69) were the most reasonable in Mt Shasta. It seems to attract a large number of returning customers who have stayed there every year for the last 20 years or so !
This is very far from a classy place but after all, everything considered, it's a decent value.

I and my friends stayed there for 2 nights (7/18&7/19). The frontdesk clerk was very nice, but the room was terrible!!!
We got room #5. As soon as we removed bed spread, we found some bugs on the blanket. We complained to the clerk, but he told us that there should not be any bugs in Mt. Shasta (?!?!). He said we could change to another room for 2nd night. We had to stay #5 for 1st night with bugs, flies and spiders. Bathroom was very old and dirty with old soap and shampoo from the previous guests. All the towels were very very old. There was used tissues under the bed. The first night was nothing but terrible experience. We wanted to move to another place, but guy said there was NO REFUND, so we decided to move to upstairs room #16. This room was a lot bigger and cleaner. There was refregirator and microwave in the room. If you have to stay this place, make sure you will get a room on upstairs!! Very convenient location but do not expect anything from this place!

We made a reservation in person in May 2004 for Labor Day Weekend. We were quoted $59.00 for a queen bed room because we reserved early. We just called today (9/2/04) to double check our reservation and the desk clerk said the rate would be $89.00 + tax because it was a holiday weekend. The desk clerk made no effort to honor the previous commitment.
We used to be faithful customers of that motel. Never again! We cancelled the reservation and just reserved a room at the Motel 6 just up the road in Weed at the last minute for $55.00 + tax (and they don't even charge us extra for our dog!)
