I stayed at this joint because it got good reviews on here and it was very close to the office in which I was working while in town on business.
1st impression with the room - very old fashioned room. You can tell it's an older building. They DID add a refrigerator, which is a huge plus in my eyes, and a microwave, which ate up about half of the counter space on the bathroom vanity.
A/C unit was noisy as reported, but it wasn't really a problem.
Chairs in the room, however, WERE a problem. There's a desk and then a table by the window with two chairs. 2 of the 3 chairs haad no support in the middle, leaving you with that uncomfortable seating position of feeling like you're sinking through the chair. They really just need to perform maintenance on these chairs, or update them.
Now on to the only real PROBLEM - the bed and pillows. The pillows, as reported, are perhaps the worst in North America. Flat, hard, and offering no way to use them comfortably. The bed felt old and very bouncy. It offered no support. They really need to update the pillows and mattresses.
Now to discuss the free breakfast. The part of this that had me scratching my head was that the restaurant to which they offer a free voucher for breakfast, Lumberjacks, is not particularly close to the hotel. Redding is a small town, but they are giving you a voucher to a place that requires you to hop on the Interstate to use it. Seriously? That being said, it probably takes less than 10 minutes to get there from the hotel. I just don't understand why they can't offer a voucher to a place right down the street. Once you get there, however, the breakfast you get from them is substantial and delicious. The servers I had were all exceedingly friendly and accommodating, too.
Place touts itself with signs outside as one of the best hotels in town, according to tripadvisor. It's fine, just not that great.
