There aren't many places to stay around here if you are passing through. trip Advisor ranks this as number 1 , so we were hoping for a little diamond in the rough. Not exactly. Communicating with the owner is a difficult experience...see other reviews for experiences similar to ours. It made us feel uneasy. The room was basic and what...

We at the Lakehead Lodge are certainly glad that you stopped in and apologize for any communication issues you might have had. We appreciated that you noted the cleanliness of the room. Sorry that you didnt have a good nights rest. Most guests seem to enjoy the firm mattresses. It is unfortunate to hear that the occasional train disturbed you....

We heard about this place on TripAdvisor while searching for good places to stop off on a long drive to Shasta. It is located in the mountains north of Redding. Once you leave Redding there are not many places to stop for lodging before Mount Shasta. We pulled up around 11 PM or maybe later, the office was locked, we...

My dad and I drove up from So Cal for a family reunion at Lakehead. Cleanliness is very important to both of us and the lodge fit the bill in this regard. The accommodations are a bit dated, however, it added to the charm of the establishment. The lodge is very well cared for and it looked as though the...

We were interested in a place close to Redding, one that took pets, was clean and reasonably priced. The outstanding reviews and location of Lakehead Lodge in the mountains, north of Redding, piqued our interest. Unfortunately, our impressions of this motel were not as rave as previous reviewers'. The host, Jim, was very personable. As mentioned by others, reservations are...

My family and I absolutely love the Lakehead Lodge. This was our first visit and we were very impressed. The rooms are very clean and well maintained.

I spent two nights at the Lakehead Lodge while attending a family reunion at Shasta Lake. I chose to have a hot shower rather than sleep in a tent. I was impressed with the lodge.
