“Stayed here again..”
Reviewed September 23, 2006

So since we had stayed at this certain Motel 6 and loved it, we decided to stay again. Pretty much the same awesome experience.. clean rooms, extremely nice staff, looks like a VERY safe area.. etc.. The room we stayed at was clean and all but wasn't as new looking as the one we had stayed in before. I wasn't disapointed too bad though since it was a pretty nice looking room. Overall still one of the better Motel 6 places I've ever stayed at.

I stayed at the South Redding Motel 6 last night, and it was a pretty nice place. It has been recently remodeled, with cheerful new bedspreads, fresh paint and carpet that still smelled new.

I had requested one bed on the ground floor, and there was a minor mix-up, with my being given two beds on the second floor. I explained that I was alone and someone else might need the other bed, and they moved me to a lower, one- bed room. It turned out to be a handicapped room, and I insisted they move me the instant a customer came along who might need that room. Well, I got the place to myself. If you are a handicapped traveller, this Motel 6 has nice, open rooms and a huge walk-in shower with a bench. They have even installed the rack to hang your clothes and the peep hole in the door at the proper height. It seems to have been done right (but the sink may be a tad high). Everything else is your typical Motel 6, with small towels, a bar of soap and that's about it, but clean as a whistle.

Other pluses are: Pam, who works the front desk, was a shining example of someone who "Smiles when she answers the phone". Very pleasant. The coffee is actually fairly strong at this location! No need to wheel through a drive-in coffee shop. Also, the on ramp for the I-5 is just across the street, so it's easy to get going in the morning.

On the flip side, Mitch, the manager, was less charming, seeming to be preoccupied with things other than customers. Upon checking out, I barely received a grunt, let alone, "How was your stay?" My other complaints would be: 1) The pillows are hard and uncomfortable and 2) They really need to enforce "quiet hours". I was awakened at 2:00 am and 3:00 am by a group of guys who had been out carousing and having fun. They clearly didn't realize how late it was and kept up for some time. In addition, even without drunken revelry, the walls and ceilings/floors are paper thin, so much so that you really need to keep the TV going at a low volume to tune out your neighbors as they chat, walk around upstairs, shower, etc.

Overall, though, it was a nice example of what a good budget accommodation Motel 6 can be. I'd stay again (with earplugs).

  • Liked — Convenient location and strong, free coffee (at least that day)
  • Disliked — No enforcement of "quiet hours". Drunken revelry at 2 and 3 in the morning was allowed to go on and on.
  • Tips/Secrets — Bring earplugs!

Pets are allowed!! Rooms were basic, but clean, fresh smelling and quiet, considering its location next to I-5. There was a heated pool which we didn't try. Buildings looked quite new and neatly landscaped. Lots of restaurants to choose from, both sides of freeway. Big beds were especially comfortable. Bathrooms were very clean. Towels were fresh smelling and very white. Would definitely stay here again. Good price, convenient for the road traveller.

This was well worth the money. It was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The front desk folks were about what you can expect, they were watching cartoons, but they were both very helpful. We will return.

I've stayed at this Motel 6 many times over the past decade, and I'm oddly attached to it. Although it's really just another roadside chain motel, it seems somehow better than the other Motel 6s I've stayed at, and way, way better than some othe low-cost chain motels. Despite being dog friendly, the rooms are unfailingly clean, like no other human has ever been there. It's quiet, there are OK restaurants nearby, and as a bonus to dogs, there's a nice green expanse of grass next door.

A very pleasant surprise with a senior discount. Kids stay free.

The room was clean and well made. Bath and showers were very clean and newly upgraded. We were easily accomodated to connecting rooms after calling only 3 hours ahead to reserve a room. The only thing preventing me from giving this an excellent was the fact that the outside of the motel was still a bit shabby looking and there is a bit of noise from the freeway outside of the room.

The airconditioning was powerful enough to cool the room in a few minutes. And the swimming pool, open until 9pm, was quite clear and a nice relief to the blistering heat in town. Towels were easy to obtain from the desk which is conveniently located very near the swimming pool.

Thought I'd mention the best Baby Back ribs I've ever tasted at a place called Logan's roadhouse just down the road, where everyone is free to throw peanut shells on the floor and a kid can be a kid (takes the pressure off a neat freak parent such as myself!).

The motel was just off the freeway, but the noise didn't bother me. And the location was great, very close to shopping centers and a huge strip of restaurants.

A thumbs up to a great find off of I-5 in Redding, CA.
