We recently stayed here and although we only slept in our room, the owners were fantastic! They allowed us to keep our small dogs (kenneled) in the room while we attended our family reunion. They refroze our cooler packs for us and offered us some bottles that had ice in them. The second day we came back to the room...

Our family recently stayed 2 nights at Shasta Lake Motel. We had a total of 3 rooms, and all members of our group were very disappointed with their rooms. Specifically, the list of negatives is as follows: No Wi-Fi in the rooms, although there it supposedly works down by the pool. However, there are not facilities there, such as a...

This next week will be our third year coming to this wonderful family owned motel. The owners are couldn't be nicer, personable and accomodating. The rooms are clean and quaint. The property is well kept, with plenty of spots to sit outside and play games or picnic. The property is close to the lake, local convenience stores, gas stations, restaurants,...

Room smelled a bit like smoke. Top lock would not lock had to get owner to simply remove the inner lock catch for it to close at all. Place was clean but very worn out. WiFi did not work in our room. Air conditioning was good but super breezy due to layout. Better for more hearty folks who want to...

Went to Shasta Lake to stay in at the Railroad Park for our 34th anniversary. Had our granddaughter with us. Stayed the night there. Next night, we stayed at the Shasta Lake Motel. The people were super friendly, treating us almost like we were family or old friends. We totally enjoyed the stay. There is a pool, horseshoes, basketball, tetherball....

We enjoyed the location and the swimming pool. We also went swimming in the lake nearby, although getting into the water is tricky, steep border. The rooms look used, but they are clean. They look like wood cabins.

My family and I just enjoyed a week at the Shasta Lake Motel and it was excellent! The motel is very "kid friendly" with lots of room on site for playing. There is very good boat parking. The rooms are very clean and the daily service was great. The place has a very cozy feel and the owners make you...

I frequently drive back and forth from LA to Seattle and I always stop at the Shasta Motel for the night. I've stopped by myself, with family, and with friends. The owner, Stephanie, is an absolute doll. She is always super helpful and accommodating, even if I call just a few hours before arriving. Treats everyone like family, and remembers...

“This motel does not have king-size beds, but they were able to offer us a double with a twin in the same room. Perfect solution for us.”

“The rooms with a kitchenette are very helpful if you plan to stay longer than a night! Just bring some of your own food and cook it there. You will save lots of money instead of always having to go out to eat. Kitchenettes are stocked with a mini fridge and stove, as well as a microwave and cooking utensils.”
