Mt. Shasta Treehouse Inn

111 Morgan Way
Mt. Shasta, CA

Treehouse Inn\’s large indoor pool.

My family and I have stayed at The Best Western Treehouse Inn in Mt. Shasta, CA several times, and while most chain motels are not worth a review, this one is an exception! If you’re traveling I-5 and need a place to stay the night, skip Redding (to the south) and Medford (to the north) if you can, and stay in Mt. Shasta. Not only is it a beautiful area in all seasons (if you can swing an extra day to ski or sled at Mt. Shasta Ski Park in winter or hike around the mountain in summer, you won’t be sorry!), but the motel is prettily themed in a log-cabin, wilderness décor, boasts a large indoor pool and hot tub, and serves a full (think eggs, pancakes, potatoes, danishes, fruit, yogurt and more) free breakfast.

Breakfast by the fireside.

Date last visited: February 2010

Distance off the interstate: Less than one minute.

Room Rates: Room rates at The Treehouse Inn are steeper than that of a typical Best Western (between $130-$150 per night), but you definitely get your money’s worth. The rooms are spacious with vaulted ceilings, mini-fridges, microwaves, and free wi-fi, and the pool is excellent. The breakfast is much more than your run-of-the-mill continental, too. Suites are available.

Food Services: There’s a restaurant on-site, but for dinner, we recommend the original Black Bear Diner, located just across the street. Say Cheese Pizza is located another block up West Lake Street, and offers lots of games for the kids and an excellent salad bar (pizza is a bit overpriced, however, in our opinion). (Find reviews of Say Cheese on Yelp.)


Directions: From Interstate 5, take the Central Mount Shasta Exit 738. Turn onto West Lake Street, then turn right onto Morgan Way.
