5 North: Mount Shasta City, The Woodsman Hotel & Lodge

The Woodsman Hotel & Lodge 1121 S. Mt. Shasta Blvd., (530) 926-3411; 43 rooms. Some fireplaces; some kitchens. Continental breakfast (served across the street at a sister inn). Guests know they have arrived when they see the roadside chainsaw-carved woodsman, welcoming them to the spacious, woodsy grounds. Situated amid fragrant tall pines and within walking distance of several restaurants, this updated old-time motel features knotty-pine walls but also white down duvets, lovely lace curtains, and theme-appropriate decorations. A few detached cabins are available, and a wide-open, high-ceilinged barn of a communal room provides guests with a gathering space, fireplace, and pool table.

  2. This is true, but this particular lodging is family-friendly, it is not a hostel.
