    « Anderson Best Western »

    We have stayed here before and would stay here again. The location is convenient - close to Safeway, outlet stores and Walmart, a donut shop, Humble Joe's Diner, and there is now a Mexican restaurant adjoining the motel. The desk clerk was friendly and helpful at check-in, the room was clean and comfortable with decent amenities. Only minor negative was the breakfast - not lots of choices; precooked eggs in warming pan and greasy bacon for hot items (plus make-your-own waffle) - nothing horrible, just kind of blah. Everything else was very good.

    « Stuck in the middle of strangers memorial celebration »

    Walls are super thin, heard people in neighboring rooms and walking past room all night. Carpet had big stain right inside door. We found out in the morning, we were in the middle of a family memorial celebration. Wish we had been told that when we checked in and asked for a quiet room. Breakfast selections were gone when we stopped in at 830.

    « Perfect Hwy 5 stop in Anderson, CA »

    The hotel was recently updated. The rooms are clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. Breakfast included many choices. Easy on/off access for Hwy 5 and there are very good options for parking, even if you're pulling a trailer:)

    « Great room, good price, »

    Second time at this hotel, The rooms are clean and the housekeeper left a nice note welcoming us to the hotel. Our room had lots of room a comfortable bed, micro wave, fridge and a good size flat screen tv. So many channels on the TV it was overwhelming. The restaurant is Mexican themed and is part of a local chain of restaurants. As a guest of the hotel we got a 15% discount off of the check. The food was very good and the service was great.

    « Another great Best Western experience »

    Typical Best Western Hotel excellence here. All the expected amenities: clean and spacious room, nice hot breakfast, excellent and friendly staff. One side note: states: view. Uhh, not! The hotel is located in a strip mall.

    « Clean, conveniant, and afforable »

    They keep this place up to date. Good, free, warm breakfast, and friendly staff. When we travel for pleasure, we ALWAYS try and stay at a Best Western! They are consistently good! Always clean and comfy!

    « October Stay »

    Our stay was okay. On Saturday we had a great breakfast but on Sunday the staff were too busy to be bothered to have breakfast items available for guests. We had to ask to have some available. The tables were also not cleaned!! We had interrupted a conversation with a couple of the staff. No a happy camper on Sunday!!!

    « When Redding is full... »

    Sort of typical Best Western, offering all the usual amenities. Staff friendly and helpful, breakfast well done, and the room clean and fully stocked. As this was an overnight stay on our way from Portland to Santa Rosa, we did not make use of any of the physical amenities. We would stay here again.

    « money saving alternative »

    If you plan to stay in the general Redding area and do not need to be right close to downtown Redding, consider this hotel as a good alternative. We were able to get rates about $35 less than a comparable Best Western in Redding. Yet we had the same amenities, access to enough restaurants and services and quick access to the freeway. You can spend your $35 at the factory outlet and pat yourself on the back. Rooms here are larger than usual, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was the usual middle range motel fare served in a pleasant room. No elevator.

    « New stop when heading south »

    On another trip to Sacramento. Normally, we stop on the second night in Redding. This time, we decided to go a bit farther. While having lunch in Redding, I called and made a reservation. When we got to the hotel, we were treated like missing friends. The lady at the desk seemed genuinely happy to see us. The room was great. Looked and smelled clean. The place was quiet and we both slept like logs. Dunno what "enhancements" a previous reviewer thinks are needed. I sure can't think of one. This will probably bee our normal stop-off on these trips from here on.

    « Empty Northern California »

    If you have a need to stay in Anderson, there are other locations of better value. Place is in need of enhancement. As for Anderson, it has a great (hard to find) bookstore named Cal's. Lots of thrift shops and swap meets if that is your thing. Very small bedroom community to Redding. Very hot in the summer, pleasant in spring and fall.

    « Nice place »

    This is our second experience at this hotel. The rooms are large and very clean, well kept. Nice refrigerator with a small freezer, helpful to us as we travel with snacks, fruit, drinks. Staff all seemed welcoming and helpful. Will stay again!

    « Ok »

    The room was ok it looked and smelled clean. The only real complaint I had was the lady at night who checked us in. She had no customer service skills. It also seemed like she didn't know what she was doing. The check in process was probably one of the longest I have ever had and it was already prebooked and paid through expedia.

    « Very nice! »

    Very clean room and helpful staff. Nice hot breakfast. We brought our dogs and they were treated well and given treats by the lady at the front desk. Small grassy area for the dogs to use, with a large open field next to the motel for longer walks. There are a couple places nearby to get a quick meal. A great place to stay--and we will return for sure!

    « Very Clean - Pleasant Decor »

    Very clean and nice decor. The room I stayed in appeared to be updated. Staff were pleasant. Breakfast had a wide variety of items to choose from. Only downside was doors to rooms face parking lot of strip mall. Can be noisy at times.

    « Clean, spacious rooms »

    Pleasantly surprised by this location. It is easily accessible from the freeway, the staff is fantastic and the rooms are very nice. Our kids wanted to check out the pool and it was also very clean and they had fun. We plan to stay at this location again next time we are in the area.

    « Very nice location. »

    This was a nice accommodation with easy access on and off the freeway. Hotel staff was very pleasant and the room was nicely presented. Our bed was very comfortable with nice linens. The restaurant we had dinner in was very good with large portions and was just down from Safeway in the same location.

    « Very nice »

    Very nice property that is up to date, clean, and has lovely staff. The rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable. The pool was very clean. Not far off the freeway but never heard any traffic noise from the room. Breakfast was a full breakfast!! Excellent stay for us and we will return.

    « Customer Service »

    My family and I had a comfortable stay. Room was clean and spacious. Matthew, at the front desk, provided excellent customer service. It was greatly appreciated. It was also very nice to have Safeway in walking distance to get a few groceries. We would stay again.

    « Short budget stay »

    stayed here for one night during the trip to Lassen national park. Rooms are basic and good. Clean, comfortable. They had microwave, nearby food joints and grocery store. Complementary breakfast was basic-waffles, tortillas, sandwich, and other stuff- but very good. The sweet lady in charge of the reception desk makes the breakfast, she was very friendly. Overall very good budget stay. Nearby motels are little cheaper than this, but given that it is Best Western chain, its understood. Recommended.

    « Marykate »

    When I came and checked in we found that Orbitz had messed my reservation up. Marykate worked tirelessly for several days to resolve the problem and in the end was completely successful. She is a real asset to the industry and I greatly appreciate all that she did. The staff here is top notch and I thank you for a very pleasant stay. Don W. Churchill

    « Treated like family »

    Great location, close to freeway, reasonable restaurants surround and there is a Safeway across the street if you chose to eat in your room. Greeted by name at the front desk and now staying weekly. Great breakfast options..make your own bk burrito. I now stay there weekly for business. Always accommodating. New Great Mexican Restaurant opening next door. Lots to do in the area. Rooms have been updated and are very quiet. Kudos to the staff. Love Brittany and Mathew who are so friendly and take time. Will continue to stay weekly with them. Wish they had tea bags in the room but you can always grab one for the dining room the night before. Hand written note in room welcoming me and wishing me a nice stay beat a chocolate on the pillow

    « Clean, Comfortable and Affordable »

    After reading some of less than favorable reviews, I want to set the record straight. When we arrived, my wife and I were pleasantly surprised to see how new the Best Western Anderson Inn appeared. We were greeted by a very pleasant staff member (I wish I would have gotten her name), who got us checked in and gave us several restaurant recommendations. The room (one king bed) was very spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and the room quiet. The included breakfast was nice and offered breakfast burritos, waffles, cereal, etc. If you are expecting the Ritz, you will be disappointed; however, if you are looking for a clean, comfortable and affordable room I would highly recommend the Anderson Inn.

    « Very clean & comfortable »

    Happy we pulled over for the night here. Very clean, modern room. Loved that it had a small freezer with the fridge. We were able to refreeze our freezer packs for our cooler for the next day's drive. A written note welcoming us on our nightstand was a nice touch! Would highly recommend.

    « A comfort night to sleep »

    I get in BW website and book the hotel but forgot to adjust the correct date of arrival, realized the mistake, I call the hotel right away and they taking care of the mistake instantly !!!!! Very professional service they have. Even though this hotel does not offer many other amenities outside but the inside is excellent: very comfort beds, strong air conditioning, clean room. I definitely recommend my friend and family to stay in this hotel next we go on the trip again.

    « Glad we only stayed one night »

    Sort of depressing. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful, but the room was dark and stuffy and sad, and the bathroom smelled faintly of pee. The breakfast was ok, although their suggested breakfast burrito would have worked better if they had a microwave rather than relying on a semi-warm tortilla and scrambled eggs to melt the cheese.

    « It is not the same »

    We have stayed at the Anderson Inn several times over the past 5 years. We have always felt like family. With the new management it no longer feels that way. We would have stayed somewhere else but we like the breakfast and this time it was not very good. Cold, no selection, the coffee was even bad.

    « Surprisingly Comfortable »

    I stayed two nights and had a nice ground floor room with two queen beds. WOW, I was pleasantly surprised with how comfortable the beds were! The room was clean and spacious with a good refrigerator, table and chairs. The staff was pleasant. The facility has a pool and a breakfast area (I didn't use either - however had I had the time I would have used them).

    « Best Western Anderson »

    Wanted to stay in Redding, but hotels checked for weekend were booked. Anderson was close so made reservation there. Room was clean and decent size. Breakfast area was kind of small but not over crowded. Good selection for breakfast.

    « Pleasant ,Comfortable + Convenient »

    Always a great stop after traveling on the road. Safeway shopping center is walking distance (across the parking lot) to hotel (so you don't have to get back into the car to find something to eat/drink). At the end of summer the restaurant next store to the BW will be open and that will be an added bonus for anyone traveling to the BW in Anderson!

    « Just average »

    Try for other location - it was not worth for the price.. This location shared with shopping complex , close to gas station - so i would recommend , if you go with family - just choose another best western location

    « Not exceptional »

    Room was adequately clean and amenities working. Bed was good. TV channels and remote of 50 buttons without a listing of shows was awkward really time consuming just to find news. Check in staff was less than professional but got the job done in spite of themselves. Not rude people, just a bit focused on themselves. Only one restaurant within a fair walk. However the closest good food was the deli fried chicken at Safeway accross the parking lot. Good stay for one night, would have to reconsider if longer.

    « Outstanding Customer Service »

    I started my day a stones throw from the Canadian border and travelled a bit further than I thought I would, finding my way to Redding where there was not a single hotel room to be found. The desk clerk in Redding recommended the Best Western in Anderson, just a few minutes away. Front desk clerk MaryKate greeted me kindly and let me know they were completely booked too. Then, she picked up the phone and dialed until she secured a room for me in a nearby town! Way to go Best Western!

    « Wedding Trip »

    We have stayed here multiple times in the last year going back and forth between So. California and Seattle Washington. It is an easy off and on I-5 and the service has always been great. It also has a nice little breakfast area with nice items. Brittany at the front desk is very helpful and a pleasure to deal with.

    « Okay for Best Western »

    Top floor as requested. But stuck in an inside corner with view of a wall. Really? Weren't even that many guests. Nice clean two queen room with fridge and microwave. No decent restaurant in walking distance. Simple breakfast offerings. Safeway grocery across the street. Fast wi-fi, good HD with Dish premium channels. No channel guide in room. Good air conditioning that kept the 103 degrees outside. Not many choices in Anderson but it's cheaper than Redding or Red Bluff.

    « Great stopover »

    Spent one night here. Check in was awesome. Jaylin was professional, friendly and efficient. They had is in an upstairs room, and I asked if they could change it to downstairs. No problem. The room was neat and clean. Comfy beds. Continental Breakfast was perfect. Easy access on and off to I 5.

    « A great value and close to all attractions. »

    Very close to Lassen NP. At check-in they were able to give us a list of very nice and reasonable places to eat. The pool and spa were very well kept and the beds were great. The personal that took care of our room and helped us on departure were very good. The breakfast was a nice touch and very fresh.

    « none »

    Cleanest motel room that I have ever stayed in. That's all I have to say. If you want me to do this survey again eliminate this requirement of two hundred characters. I have got better things to do with my time than make things up.

    « Great Place! »

    Over the years, I have used this Hotel on several occasions, dating back to the days when there was a cat and dog to greet you when you arrived. Never regretted a single stay. I have recommended it to many friends who travel I-5 and have had positive responses.

    « Roaches! Ugh!! »

    If you poke around, you'll see we've stayed here more than a few times. On a recent trip, however, we spotted a cockroach on the floor in the breakfast room. That's pretty disgusting. So that's it for us, because if there's infestation, there's no way the rooms can be clean -- bedbugs, anyone? -- and no way we'll stay here again. Goodbye Best Western Anderson. Hello Gaia.

    « Vacation stop »

    This was a pleasant surprise. Very friendly and helpful staff. Both at check in and check out. Breakfast was excellent. Waffles, assortment of bread, cereals and pastries. Had sausage, scrambled eggs and tortillas for a make your own burrito. The beds were extremely comfortable. Right across the street from Von's and gas stations.

    « Nice staff, very firm bed. »

    The staff was friendly, and the room was clean. The bed was very firm. It didn't bother me, but my husband's back was definitely complaining. The breakfast was yummy, and the check out was fast and easy.

    « clean, quiet stop on the road to Oregon »

    This is a very well kept, quiet, inexpensive stop over on our way to Oregon. There is a restaurant within walking distance. The motel provides a good breakfast. The rooms are large with refridgerators.

    « Very nice hotel in Anderson »

    I stayed at this hotel one night over Memorial Day on a my way to Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. Room was spacious, clean, comfortable. Hotel has easy access to HWY, and walking distance to a mall that has a Safeway, a Dollar Tree and a nice sports bar with locals. Quiet room, comfortable beds. Breakfast was a bit lower quality than what I experience in other Best Westerns. They had waffles and burritos, which was a nice, but I missed some fruit and maybe some fresh bagels or something like that. I would definitely come back and it is a good place to explore the Lassen/Redding area...

    « Anderson Inn »

    Quiet, hotel built to eliminate freeway noise. Vista view of Mt Lassen great to enjoy in the evening. Hotel staff excellent and responsive. Furnishings comfortable and room immaculate. breakfast exceeded Best Western's high standards.

    « Comfortable and Clean »

    Had absolutely no problems with this room. Easy off/on Interstate 5, beds were comfortable, room was quiet. Everything worked just fine -- especially like the coffeemaker for that first cup in the morning. Large parking lot for oversized vehicles (we didn't have one, we parked right in front of our room, but could see a few work trucks). Check-in and Check-Out was quick and easy. Staff efficient and personable. Breakfast room is small but adequate -- just get there early! Room was immaculate and kitchen staff helpful in keeping supplies replenished. There is a nice supermarket across the street, and a Little Caesar's Pizza place close by, if that's all you're wanting. Other places to eat would only be a short drive. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

    « This place is a crap hole »

    Room had cockroaches and I was afraid to take my shoes off. Way to expensive for such a crappy place. Would never stay in this hotel again. Way to expensive for such a crappy hote I wnt to Reno next day and got a suite and paid way less. I would not stay here agian. Maybe motel 6 across they street would have been better.

    « Good Motel »

    If you are traveling north on I-5 and looking for a nice place to stay this would be a good choice. The layout is motel style, but well kept. Good for business traavel and there is a good restaurant across the parking lot.

    « Great »

    Easy check in and out, very comfortable bed, lots of pillows, working AC/Fridge/microwave/coffee pot, good breakfast,however the Ice machine a little hard to find. There could be more parking and an elevator would make it easier to unload luggage, but those are no big deal.

    « My two night stay in Anderson. »

    Well located, lots of parking, quiet neighborhood, even though net to I-5. A good place to rest. It is also conveniently located to Safeway Food Store, with a Starbucks Coffee Shoppe and other small business, and a Shell Gasoline Station. The bed was clean and comfortable, I had no difficultly sleeping there, also the bathroom was comfortable, the shower had good water flow and made me feel comfortable, as well, I was able to clean up and get ready for a good night sleep. The air conditioner kept the room comfortable as well. Except for the running and jumping in the room above on Monday morning, all was well.

    « Always An Awesome stay »

    We always stay at the Anderson Inn when in the Redding area. There is no place in Redding that can compare to the value and customer service at the Anderson Inn. We love it there and will not stay anywhere else in the area.

    « Convenient location »

    We were very close to Redding and the airport. Motel was very clean, easy to get to, staff was very friendly and helpful. There are a gas station and Safeway near by. The rooms had a refrigerator and microwave which was very convenient. I liked the room layout in that the shower/toilet was in a separate room from the sink and dressing area. Both rooms had doors so it made it easy to get ready for a wedding without stepping on one another. Overall, a very pleasant experience. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Always dependable »

    We have stayed at the BW in Anderson many times. It is always clean, friendly, and comfortable. The breakfast is good and there is a large field adjacent for those that are traveling with a pet. It is within walking distance to a large grocery store and a couple of restaurants. Good choice!

    « Great Stay »

    Best Western Anderson, CA is a great place to stay. It is attractive, clean, and the staff is kind and considerate! Breakfast is yummy! Location is central to many activities. We will stay there again the next time we are in the area.

    « Good value »

    Hotel is conveniently located. Rooms are plain and clean. Beds are ok. Breakfast was about middle of the road for free breakfast. It was worth going, the facility are a little small, only four tables. There is a Safeway across the street and a pizza parlor.

    « This hotel rocks! »

    I've stayed here on many occasions and I love the location, staff and rooms! Patti and her crew do great things to make you feel at home and expedite the check-in! Easy on and off "The 5" and lots of places to eat and/or drink. Safeway next door, many restaurants-cheap gas for the car and a great room-one of the best breakfasts you'll find for a hotel. Highly recommended!

    « fun and comfort »

    We were travelling back to Canada after wintering in California. Anderson was a stretch destination for us, but good weather was in our favour. I was ready for a break when I arrived. The reception process was more than pleasant, it was fun. The motel had everything that we wanted and met the quality that we expect at Best Western. The hotel does not have an "executive level" appearance but was not at all shabby. The rooms were clean and everything was in order. I will stay there again if it suits my route and time

    « Great place to stop and rest »

    We always stop here when on a 2 day trip to Southern California. It is right in the middle and splits the drive. Always great service and clean rooms. There are many places to eat in the area and there is the breakfast at the motel. We also like to stop at "Jack's Donuts" next door.

    « Birthday trip »

    We traveled to Anderson for a birthday party last month and stayed at the Best Western Inn. We loved it. The staff was very friendly and helpful throughout the entire stay. They catered to all of our needs. We received extra blankets and towels as soon as we asked. We always have such a great experience when we stay there which is why we keep coming back. I want to thank all of the people that helped us while we were there and especially the very nice manager who was extremely thoughtful and accommodating.

    « Unclean »

    The bed sheets looked to be dirty and there was toothpaste on the mirror. NOT what I expect from a Best Western. We only stayed less than 8 hours but I would not stay here again due to the uncleanliness.

    « Older but nice »

    This is an older hotel but has been updated. The rooms are nice size with very comfortable beds. There is no elevator so if the stairs are a problem you'll want to stay on the main floor. This wasn't a problems for us so we had a very quiet upper floor room.

    « Enjoy Our Stay - 3 nights »

    My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this Best Western travelling with our cockatiel, PG. It was great! Staff is excellent. Breakfast had a great variety of goodies. The location is awesome, easy off and on I-5, shopping, and close to the veterans cemetery - Northern California Veterans Cemetery.

    « The Best! »

    We really like the Best Western at Anderson, CA The staff is terrific and the location is perfect. it is easy to get off and then on the freeway, grocery stores and Starbucks are a few feet away and if you are traveling with dogs there are places right outside the property to let them run. For us it is the only place we will stay in the Redding/Anderson, CA area!

    « Very Nice Place »

    Very nice spot to spend the night. Front desk staff was very polite. Smiles abound. Got our room key and went upstairs to our room. opened the door to a very nicely decorated room. Inviting, clean and comfy. There is pride with the housekeeping staff as they leave a handwritten note welcoming the guest. Thank you Jeannie. The bathroom was CLEAN!! I looked everywhere and found nothing to complain about. The property was quiet. We did not do the free breakfast so no comments can be made. Check-out went without a problem. Outside areas were well maintained. All in all, very nice. We will stop here again.

    « Great hotel »

    We had a Great time. Great Hotel. The Breakfast was awesome. We would stay there again. The only problem we had was no hot water in the bathroom. The pillows were soft and comfy. The room was very clean. The Staff was very friendly and helpful. The staff came and cleaned up the water from the rain that was pooled out side a room.

    « Great motel »

    Usually I am really apprehensive to stay in a motel rather than a hotel. This was a great motel. Clean and updated modern room, more than you would expect from an average budget motel. Great friendly staff. Convenient location right off the freeway and Safeway grocery store right across the street. Motel is about 10-15 minutes south of Redding (9 miles).

    « Love This Bestest Western »

    I've stayed here on a few occasions and I love the location, staff and rooms! Easy on and off "The 5" and lots of places to eat drink and maybe find Merry-LOL! Safeway next door, many restaurants-cheap gas for the car and a great room-one of the great breakfasts you'll find for a hotel. Highly recommended!

    « "Best" is right! »

    We have been on the road for a week and this was our fifth and final hotel we stayed in. It was, by far the best hotel we booked thus far. We were welcomed warmly, given a great suggestion for a restaurant for dinner, the room was very nice, with nice touches like a hand-written note welcoming us and thanking us for choosing their hotel, a nice washcloth folded into a duck and a "fresh remote". The room was very comfortable and we couldn't hear any outside noises until a diesel truck started up just outside our room in the morning. Breakfast was hearty and plentiful and we were on our merry way very satisfied and rested. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone!

    « First stay in Anderson, CA. »

    In traveling in and out of California from Washington/Oregon over the years, I have stayed overnight in Redding, Red Bluff, Corning, Williams, etc. Because of a drastic price increase in accommodations I had used the week before I decided to try the Best Western in Anderson on a return trip. I was presently surprised by the friendly staff and the quality of the room. Although small, the room was very well set up, beds were comfortable and the tv was in good working order. Another pleasant surprise was the variety of eating places within a short drive, and some within walking distance. I believe this s just a Best Western, not a Plus, and very good value for the money

    « Great stop between Seattle and LA »

    Clean, quiet, comfortable and south of Redding. Slept well! Only reason for one less star is you can hear the visitor above if you're on first floor. Not unlike living in our old house so it wasn't really bad but could bother some. Ask for second floor if so. Plumbing is a little loud, but not awful. Great value, feels safe and it's close to stores, etc.

    « Large and affordable »

    We were heading to my mom's from Oregon and drove until we could not drive anymore and then looked for a hotel by us. The Best Western in Anderson was listed for 80.00 so we went there. They did not have the low price room but the one offered was only 15.00 more and was well worth it. The room was huge with walk-in closet. The beds were comfortable and had great pillows. This is just what our tired bodies needed. The staff was great and they offered breakfast in the morning. We were very happy with what this hotel offered for the price.

    « Wrestling Trip »

    This was the third time we have stayed at this Best Western and it was just as good as the first time. Nice clean and friendly. The same lady checked us in that was there last year. The breakfast was good, the room was clean and very nice. Its close to a store, food and the school we were going to. We will be staying there next year too.

    « Super helpful in time of crisis »

    Needed a room for stay during wrestling tournament, was advised that nothing was available called direct line to Best Western and the very helpful staff found me the last room available, was much appreciated! Will be staying there next year when we return.

    « Great Best Western at Anderson »

    This place has always exceeded the maximum limitations! Great staff, great rooms, easy and ample parking and a very good breakfast!!!! I've stayed here on a few occasions and have always wanted to return. The place is very easy on and off the interstate and lots of shopping and places to eat nearby! Cheaper than Reddiing and just a few minutes away-highly recommended!

    « Great Stopping Spot »

    We were looking for stopover spots on our route from Washington to Richmond, CA. We had visited Anderson's riverfront park on a past trip, and enjoyed the park, and seen lots of Acorn Woodpeckers. We stayed at the Best Western Anderson Inn, and were glad we did. The receptionist was very pleasant and helpful. The room was large, with a couch, nice bed, and large bathroom counter and storage area. Out dog was welcome, and there was a small dog area just outside. There were stores and restaurants near by for dining and stocking up. We will visit again.

    Good Value stay all due to outstanding Reception staff and fine bedding! Hotel looks more like a motel and paint color change might enhance it. Try nearby friendly Joe's Restaurant and cozy/lively pub.

    « Great location and dog friendly »

    Our second stop along the way to Cabo in Anderson is well worth it - right next to a mall with a Safeway and gas station and on the other of the motel is a huge field to walk the dogs in. More than decent breakfast to send you on your way in the morning. Room was plenty big enough to accommodate us and our two large dogs. ALSO - if you are heading south before you get to Anderson in Redding, CA there is a super dog park out on Airpark Rd. Really handy and well maintained.

    « Best place to stay on the road »

    We have stayed here twice on our trip from San Diego to Portland, Oregon. It is a easy to get to hotel that is clean and comfortable. The breakfast is delicious and just what we need to get back on the road.

    « good value »

    the staff were well dressed, personable and helpful, place was clean and room and bed were comfortable, breakfast was very good, hot and plenty of food, location was good, close to freeway yet quiet and in good area

    « Trip from Seattle »

    It was perfect for the reason we had. My husband had passed away and we were trying to get back to Arizona before we were caught in a storm. My daughter stayed with me, and my other daughter and her husband also had a room. They were very gracious as well because of our circumstances. Thankyou for such caring people.

    Be warned, the walls are so thin you can hear peoples conversations and snoring so loud we did not sleep. Beds are ok, room was clean, no toilet paper. Front desk was very friendly and helpful. Location right off freeway, next to a Safeway.

    « Good Night, Anderson »

    While visiting an old friend for Thanksgiving, we chose this location, because we have stayed there in the past and found it an excellent value for the venue. The check in staff was pleasant and helpful. When we returned from our visit, we were tired from travel and found the bed very comfortable and had a good nights sleep. I would stay there again and recommend it to anyone.

    « A Great Place to Stay »

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Best Western, Anderson, CA. The room was cozy, well-appointed, clean and large. We were absolutely pleased with our stay. The breakfast was nourishing and the variety was excellent. The price was phenomenal.

    « Good travel Hotel »

    The hotel has large, clean rooms is 1 minute off of Highway 5, nice staff and is surrounded by Gas stations, stores, and restaurants, Safeway in just across the street and you can walk to all the other places, nice place to stopover if you are traveling in Northern Cal or Southern Oregon.

    « Great Staff »

    The staff went out of their way to make every small detail of our stay a good experience. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in this area. It is a great deal for the price and they give you breakfast if you leave early. Nice touch.

    « Nice Room, Scary Pool at Night »

    I stayed here for one night in early October with my husband and 9-year-old son. The room was nice (although the bathroom was a little funky - it was very small and the shower was loud). Noise during the night was minimal, even though we were close to the freeway. The included free breakfast was decent, but with minimal variety. We checked in during the evening when the outdoor pool was still open, and my son wanted to go swimming, so I went to check out the pool Our room was on the second floor in the middle, so I went downstairs and walked to the pool, which is at the other end of the building from the office. This Best Western backs up to an exit ramp, and sits at one side of a parking lot. Sort of across the parking lot from the Best Western is a strip mall. So when I got to the outdoor pool, I could see it was enclosed by a wall and had one dim light providing some illumination over the pool, but much of the pool deck area was in darkness, including the part attached to the rest of the building, where there appeared to be a door but it was hard to see. On the other side of the pool is an empty area of the parking lot with minimal illumination. The strip mall stores looked mostly dark except for one place that was open. During the day, the pool area is probably fine; during the evening when it is dark (but the pool is still open), the pool area is scary.

    « One of the Best Best Westerns! »

    This hotel is a great place to stay. Staff is very friendly and always on top of their game. Rooms are very comfortable and clean! Great location next to "The 80" and lots of dining establishments nearby! Highly recommended!

    « Family Visit »

    Our family owns a farm in Anderson. When we visit we stay at the Best Western. It is conveniently located, there is a Safeway, restaurants, gas stations, etc. very near by. The room is high quality, the staff are very helpful and welcoming. What more could we want.

    « Hidden gem ... and a bargain, too »

    I stay at the Best Western in Anderson, CA when in the area for business. It is an older facility that is well maintained. Beds are very comfortable. Rooms are clean and attractive. Bathrooms are spotless. Breakfast service is nicely presented. Internet connectivity is great. Staff members are kind and helpful. Despite the fact that the motel is near a major freeway, the noise level is low and I have NEVER experienced any disruption caused by other guests.

    « Stopped for the night on our way to Oregon »

    We made a quick overnight stop at this convenient location. It was very quiet considering how close it is to I-5. The manager was very helpful and pleasant. This property is a "motor lodge" with outdoor corridors, so the price is reflective of what it is. It was very clean and comfortable and breakfast was actually better than the norm. I don't care too much for the "bright white light" in the energy saving bulbs but I'm trying to get used to it. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay.

    « Consistency - Two Years Later and Still Great Service and Nice Rooms... »

    Passing through from Southern California heading to Oregon, we stopped at Best Western Anderson Inn. The previous time we came through a wild fire burned up to the back of the facility and scorched the stucco and some exposed rafters. The damage is (of course) repaired and the entire place has a nice new paint job. As far as service is concerned, it is still top notch. The people that I dealt with at the front desk were efficient, helpful and friendly. I would not ask for more than that. The rooms are still nicely appointed and up-to-date. A nice HD satellite based TV feed is provided to the in-room HD flat panel TVs. The WiFi has definitely been upgraded over two years ago (as tested by my kid's high bandwidth gaming). This will remain our place-to-stop on our return trips to Oregon to visit family and friends.

    « Very Nice Hotel and Staff »

    The hotel is very nice and right off "The 5". Nicest staff running the place you will find anywhere! Great rooms, clean with all the bells and whistles! Ample parking area with many stores and restaurants nearby. Just a great place to stay-I will be back!

    « oct 2015 stay »

    for our first time at this Best western it was okay. We had a few issues but maybe next time it won't happen. We will stay next time we are in Anderson. The breakfast was excellent! There was plenty for everyone.

    « Nice hotel in good location »

    Very convenience to access supermarket, gas station and restaurant. Close to shopping mall in Anderson. It's good location that we stay one night and visit Lassen National park and Redding. Cheaper price than stay in Redding hotel and only 14 minutes driving to Redding.

    « Best in Area »

    Nice, clean, and well located near to restaurants and grocery store. Easy on and off freeway. Breakfast was very good. No need to go elsewhere for that. The only thing that kept this from being top all the way were the pillows on the bed. There were 4 really fluffy pillows on each bed. Should have 2 fluffy and 2 flatter pillows. Lots of people (I did a survey) do not like real fluffy pillows, especially people over 50. That was the only less than excellent comment from all 20+ people in my group.

    « Lovely Hotel »

    This is a very nice Hotel with lovely rooms and excellent staff. The complimentary breakfast was very good. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. I will stay there again if I am ever in Anderson and need a room.

    « Home away from home »

    Patti is always so personal to our needs. I had a knee injury this time and she immediately made sure we were accommodated for my disability. It is always a pleasure to see our Best Western Family when we are in the Anderson area. In fact my meetings are in Redding and Shasta Lake City are and we choose to stay at the Anderson Best Western just for those reasons. The whole entire staff are great. We thank them for making us feel at home.

    « We have been staying here for 25 years »

    Very convenient with restaurants and gas stations close by. Patti, the General Manager is so friendly and helpful. She knows we check-in late so during the summer she will go in our room and turn on the air-conditioning. We like the fact they keep 2 smoking rooms. Good hot buffet breakfast.

    « Vist Redding »

    If possible Best Western is my hotel of choice. It amazes me how some of these hotel chains extremely over-price their hotels in some of these cities. Have stayed at Anderson BW before & it is more reasonably priced & delivers a great service.Location is good, a bit of zig-zagging to get to it & pretty quiet. My only suggestion, add bagels & cream cheese to breakfast!

    « Comfortable, clean, reasonable »

    Found staff friendly & helpful, and accommodated our request for room location. Room perfectly adequate & clean. Everything worked. WIFI speed decent. Bathroom not overly large. Front desk person gave good recommendations for local restaurant.

    « Top notch all the way around »

    The rooms were very nice and very clean, the grounds were nice, the place was pet friendly. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good but the wi-fi was spotty. The shower was great! (yes, this is important to me). I would come back again without hesitation.
