This is the kind of motel I like--an older, classic roadside motel from the golden age of family vacationing that is well maintained and reasonably priced.
Overall, it was a great value and we would definitely stay here again (in fact, this was our second stay.)
The Hi-Lo is a 1950s-1960s era motel located on what used to be US Highway 99 in Weed, CA, with easy access to I-5. It is a very well-maintained property, especially on the outside. It is freshly painted and nicely landscaped. It is a family-owned establishment and it is clear that they take a lot of pride in their motel (and other related enterprises).
On our trip, we booked two rooms (one for our family and one for some relatives, which gave us an opportunity to compare two rooms).
What we liked:
•The rooms are clean.
•The upper-level rooms have plenty of natural light.
•The furniture is fairly up-to-date and in good condition.
•Some rooms have a refrigerator and microwave (this information is available when booking on the Hi-Lo website).
•The beds were very comfortable.
•The little creek at the back of the property was a lot of fun for the kids.
•The closet area was ample.
•At check-in, guests receive tokens good for free coffee at the property's on-site cafe (which is worth eating at).
•The creekside room offered more quiet and privacy.
•Mt. Shasta is CLOSE! What a view!
What we would like to see improved:
•The Wi-Fi signal was weak in the lower-level (creekside) room, but strong in the upper level room.
•The creekside room, being downstairs, felt a little dark and not as well-ventilated as the upper-level room.
•Thicker pillows or more pillows on the bed would be nice for sleepers who have a variety of pillow preferences.
•The bathroom in the creekside room was OK, would would benefit from an update with some newer fixtures and more counterspace.
•The TV was a tube-type (not flat screen) and the cable was a little limited (neither is a big deal, but there it is.)
