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 …
... that we were dying in our long sleeve shirts! Wasn't quite prepared for that. Will wear cooler clothes tomorrow and maybe even sandals. We looked pretty silly when we pulled into our spot in Redding today in our winter gear. The kids and most people were in shorts and t shirts and sandals. All they had to do was look at our license plate and understand our dress!
We should hit Napa by late afternoon and ...
... We cannot wait to get to Seattle, but safety is our utmost priority. Plus, it feels good to just take an extra day to relax! We haven't done very much today, but it was a very welcome change from the past week of the Wake Up-Pack Car-Hit the Road ritual. Today we slept in, did some much needed yoga, reorganized our increasingly messy car, and stopped by a delicious local lunch place called The Best Little Sandwich Shop. Amazingly, they have HUNDREDS of ...
... chips. Maddie commented that every one we had encountered in food places were really polite and good at what they did. Josh then explained to her that they were working for their tips. The basic hourly rate is probably what a kid at McDonalds earns here. So to survive the staff really need their tips. So while some food items appeared to be cheaper in some cases by the time we added tax (~9%) and tips(~10%) it came out even or ...

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 .
