Staying in Yreka? Check out the Best Western Minors Inn

I always get a bit nervous about the condition of some of the hotels and motels that I schedule when traveling. I don’t have a problem when the city is large and has some of the major lodging chains. However, the fear jumps up when I have to stay in some remote areas. I traveled to such a place today.

I had to stay in Yreka for a volunteer commitment and had to reserve a place to stay a while back. There are others that were doing the same, and I got a chance to see their place before getting to mine. Though they stayed a little cheaper, the Best Western that I booked was a luxury castle in comparison.

I am staying at the Best Western Minors Inn here in Yreka. The unit has been recently updated with new furniture and accessories, not your standard small town motel. I would highly recommend this place to anyone willing to pay $80.00 per night plus tax.

Best Western Minors Inn in YrekaThe standard queen bed, non-smoking room is beautifully decorated. It has two tables with comfortable seats with plenty of outlets for your computer work. The lighting is great, 5 lamps plus the wall and ceiling mounted fixtures. The vanity is tile with two sinks and plenty of counter space and closet storage. As I’m looking around there are three large wall mirrors in addition to the artwork on the walls.

I’m looking forward to the free continental breakfast in the morning – it sure beats driving in the morning to find food in a small town. The Wi-Fi was fast and easy to use too. There was a surprise token for a discount on the gas across the street; a great idea since the fuel costs here are high and most did not stop to get gas before coming up this far.

If you are traveling to Yreka and need a place to stay, consider the Best Western Minors Inn at 122 E. Minor Street in Yreka, CA 96097.

good morning Tom, Yreka CA, brings back memories of 2 weeks spent near there fighting forest fires in the 80s. Our accommodations were a bit more spartan, under a plastic tarp in an old gravel pit.

Have a Great Weekend!!

Tom, perhaps you should start a travel hotel rating service and compete with Michelin? Who knows, a new revenue stream! Actually though, I have the same trepidations about styling in a hotel, so it is always helpful when there is a personal endorsement. Thanks!

Good morning Tom. This is a great shout out. I hope to travel to New Jersey next week to pick up my dogs and looking online for a room was disheartening. Expensive and poor reviews. It shouldn't cost over $200.00 in a non vacation area.

Nice recommendation for Best Western in Yreka Tom. It does look like a nice room. We have had our share of surprises and they aren't fun, except maybe the one where the toilet rocked LOL!

Hi Tom,

They sure like to get a good fee for staying over night don't they?

Staying when on the road is not a cheap option.

Have a great weekend my friend in Sacramento.

Best, Clint McKie

I'm with you Tom. So important to have a comfortable ( and CLEAN) room when staying in an unfamiliar locale. If I find myself in Yreka - I now know where to stay - the gas discount is a good idea too.

Even that sounds better than some of the places I've seen Bob.   :)

Well Norman, a hotel rating service does seem like an easier job than construction. You are right about the personal endorsement; it makes a difference.

Sheila - It can be expensive to stay in some areas, and sometimes it does not make sense. Good luck with the dogs.

Clint - Welcome to California! You don't want to here the prices in the big cities.  :)

Debb - I thought the token was a great marketing idea by the gas station.
