Viking Motel
Ranked #8 of 13 Hotels in Lodi
Reviewed 5 March 2016

Sparkling clean, with newish furniture, and no marks on the walls or floors - probably we had a recently renovated room. Compared to the chains at nearly double the price, the room is small, but has all we need for a one-night stay, and it is tremendously convenient to be parked steps from the door. If all independents were like this, we would rarely stay at the big chains.

This could not have been a better independent hotel, so 5/5 rating. But don't confuse it with places that cost over $100/night.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back have flow-through ventilation (bathroom window and front window open)

We were looking for something off the beaten path. This place was great. We had a quiet room toward the back, very clean and tastefully put together. I liked the furniture, had a comfortable sitting chair, and a beautiful yucca plant growing right outside our window. We went to breakfast right down the street at the Hollywood cafe, for a great and reasonable breakfast. We loved our stay at the Vikings Motel. They even have a basketball hoop out for kids to play.

Room Tip: Go for rooms in the back, away from the street

I stopped early in the day due to being fatigued. Looked uP the prices on Trip Advisor and made a call to the hotel to verify the availability and price. The owner was friendly and picked a room that I could keep an eye on my motorcycle. Room was clean and had good water pressure.

We were traveling through here on a pretty tight budget. I searched for cheap hotels and found this. It looked good enough for what we were looking for, so I booked it. When we arrived, we noticed the outside was manicured beautifully. We checked in easily. The room was very nice. Had a bit of a musty smell when we first entered, but that went away quickly once we turned on the AC. I will definitely stay here again if I am in the area.

Stayed 4 nights while visiting Lodi.
This is a great place to stay. Newly remodeled room with the best motel bed I have ever slept on. Clean, quiet & comfortable large room. Run by a friendly couple with good knowledge of the area. We have a new best place to stay while in town.

Room Tip: Ask for room 9.... Large room, comfortable bed with a great shower.
