This is really a motel with only basic services.

Posted Nov 23, 2013
Pros: Proximity to the event we were attending.
Cons: Make the motel look more like the photo.
Location: Ironstone Winery.
This older motel was very clean and the clerk was very pleasant. However, for travelers expecting anything other than very, very basic basics, they may want to check elsewhere. I have no idea where the photo shown was taken, but the motel is built in an L-shape with an asphalt parking lot in front.

Probably Par for the Area

Posted Jul 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
Room was mostly clean. Looked like the carpet had not been vacuumed. There was no phone service for my carrier and you could not make collect calls. You needed a phone card which they should sell at the front desk if that is the case. There was no WI-FI. There was no way to let people know you arrived safely. I could have gone someplace I guess but who wants to chase down a phone to use? Also, I was in an outside room which was on the street. Didn't make me feel real safe. Good thing I brought a door stop.

Nice, no-frills place to stay.

Posted Jun 24, 2013
Pros: The room was comfortable, nice bed and our room was in the corner so our window faced out back instead of towards the parking lot.
This was our first trip to Arnold, CA; we were visiting for a wedding. This lodge was centrally located with a nice brewery/restaurant across the street. There is a market just down the road. I prefer a real coffee maker to the single cup brew machine provided. They provided 1 reg and 1 decaf 'cup', so switch out the decaf at the front desk if you want to enjoy two cups of reg coffee in the morning. There is a charge for extra cups.

Clean- easy to get to

Just stayed one night for a business trip. Nothing fancy but clean. Classic park in front of our room style of property which works for unloading our equipment quite well

A Nice Stay

Posted Feb 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
Overall it was nice. The place was clean, rooms were updated but a little close to Hwy 4. The Brewery across the street was a great place for dinner so check that out. The queen bed was more like a full bed but for the price it was fine.

water from under the toilet was leaking on the floor, no facial tissue in the room, cleaner removed the bathroom floor towel but forgot to put back a fresh one, only single chair in the room with queen bed

Good Ski Stop

Posted Jan 29, 2013
Although we had to wait until almost 4:00 to check in when check-in was at 3:00, the room was clean and had a refrigerator and microwave, and free wi-fi. The hotel was very quiet. We came to Arnold to stay so we could ski early in the morning at Bear Valley. Good location.

Clean, quite, and convenient. Only drawback is that you need to drive for eating.

Nice location

Posted Jan 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
We booked this hotel not hoping for much as there are not any chain hotel in Arnold. The lodge did not look like much. The office was very small but the front desk staff was friendly. I was a little liary about going into the room but to my surprise the room was very clean, including the carpet and the bathroom. It had all the basics. It was a little tight as the bed was too close to the bathroom but overall pleased with service and accommodation.The staff were all nice and professional. The surrounding had restaurants and grocery store. We had a good time skiing in Bear Valley.

Great Little Motel Half Way Up to Ski Resort

Posted Dec 29, 2012
We made the booking for the hotel just a day before our trip through Expedia. When we got there the hotel manager apparently did not have a record of our booking. He realized later that somehow he had missed the info. It turned out that we had booked a room with two queen beds but when we got there they had all been taken. The person in charge did his best to find us a room with a single queen and he got us a roll-in bed that we somehow managed with. Apart from this experience, we found that this hotel is well maintained and the staff is very responsive.
