Route: From Sunnyvale, CA to Redding, CA
So we're finally, officially, heading north today – homeward bound! It was really interesting planning this leg of the trip because there were so many options (in terms of state parks and great sights) to check out, but we think we’ve found a good balance and look …
Though we covered a lot of distance today, we didn't really do a lot of things. It was a day of ups and downs. We started off in Benbow, at the inn. As we found last night, the place was lovely with an old world feel to it. We got things packed up and ready to carry down for the most part (3rd floor room... no elevator), then went downstairs for …
We will be embarking on our journey in t-6 hours! I am so excited to be going on a road trip with one of my best friends. I can't wait to see what sort of crazy shena****ns we get ourselves into. Our bags are packed and we are equipped; kindly by our fathers; with bear mace, regular mace, a baseball bat and a taser. We also managed to throw in some other essential supplies: two handles of vodka, 3 liters of gin and of course some lemons...let's get this show on the ...
Good morning it's Friday the 13th - Good luck day!
Another foggy / cloudy morning this what we've come to expect here but by mid day the sunshine is out and hot afternoons, a nice mix.
One note about our last night in Napa (last night), we ate at Carp Diem Wine Bar it is truly a 4 / 5 start wine bar. Their atmosphere is lively and staff are very nice. The food was of Michelin standards the flavors were like non I've ever tasted in a wine ...
It's bittersweet as we head home. Our day was too long trying to get closer and have a shorter day tomorrow. Traveled nine hours from the time we left the Carr's in Rockaway Beach this morning, The drive through Oregon and into Northern California is beautiful through mountain passes and past Mt. Shasta and Lake Shasta. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge Redding
Friendly, Caring Staff
The staff at this motel, both behind the desk and in housekeeping were friendly and cared about the satisfaction of their guests. They were knowledgeable of the area and gave good advice regarding area attractions.
The People Made the Difference
I just spent 5 weeks @ Travelodge in Redding Ca. My stay away from home was awesome. Its nice to have friendly people who are so helpful when you are away from your family for so long. The staff there really made my stay enjoyable and pleasant. I recommend it to anyone who needs a family stay away from home.
Thanks to all the pleasant people @ Travelodge. I would diffently return as a matter of fact I already have.
Took my 92 year old Dad on a trip to see Shasta Dam, and needed to stay overnight.
We stayed here while heading back north to Portland; by stopping in Redding overnight, one can avoid going through the mountain passes in the darkness. If there's snow during the night, they don't plow until morning, and they might require chaining up (a major hassle-there aren't too many people around in the night to help with chaining up).
Fantastic hotel- Attractive, very comfortable and newly deocorated rooms,exceptionally clean and well maintained, extremely helpful and courteous staff, convenient location. Complimentary hot breakfast served in an adjacent restaurant was so much nicer than the typical continental breakfast.
As was mentioned by another review, I was also a bit apprehensive about staying at a Travelodge, and I had read on other sites the location (N. Market Street) is a questionable area of Redding. Well, I was pleasantly surprised.
We stayed at the Travelodge in route to Oregon. I called ahead and talked with Steve at the front desk, he was very pleasant and helpful. We reserved a room and arrived a couple of hours later. Because Travelodges are not normally rated too well we were a little worried about what to expect, were we in for a surpise! Everything was clean, had a little kitchen area, a full size refrigator and microwave. Nicely decorated, bathroom was spotless. We looked inside of the laundry room and found it to be better than any we have seen in a hotel, clean, table and chairs to sit and wait, vending machines and nicely decorated. As it has been mentioned in other ratings the breakfast voucher was a wonderful way to start the day, no cold dry cereals or stale pastry as is normal in most continental breakfasts. Steve suggested a couple of resturants upon our arrived and we had a great dinner after our long drive, thank you Steve.
We stayed here one night as we were passing through on a vacation. The room was perfect. Everything was so clean and fresh, rare in any motel room. Even the fridge gleamed with cleanliness and was larger than the usual motel fridge. Our king bed was very comfortable, the bathroom first rate and everything was decorated nicely. The room was pleasantly scented as well. Not perfumey, just a nice clean smell. We were given vouchers for the cafe next door and were able to have a nice breakfast before we set off on our long days drive. Far better than your average free continental breakfast. All this for a very reasonable rate!
We stayed in Redding for 3 nights, We traveled with 3 teens and myself and husband. We stayed at the Best Western next door to the Travelodge . We spent 110.00 a night. The "Spa" was cold and filled with some kind of foam the room was cramped and we had to rearrange furniture to make room for a rollaway and they did not have a microwave .
