Stay was okay but bed not so much
Generally, we had an okay stay here. It is an old unit and some things were dated but certainly usable and generally clean. We can put up with a lot and don't require luxury but what really would make us hesitate staying here again was that the mattress is totally worn out. The problem is that there is a significant sag in the middle, so no matter how hard my wife and I tried to stay on our sides of the bed we ended up rolling into each other in the middle. After and hour or two of struggling and not sleeping on our first night's stay, I got out of the bed and slept on the floor. This problem was later remedied by taking some of the throw pillows off the couch and putting them under the mattress in the middle. Not and ideal fix but helped a lot. I would have called the property manager but doubted he would have provided us with a new mattress on a moment's notice. The pillows were huge and difficult to sleep on and the bed sheets thin.
The unit does not have a microwave which would have been convenient. Also, the pots and pans didn't have lids so cooking was not easy.
Otherwise, the building itself was quiet although the train at night rolls through town several times in the middle of the night blowing it's whistle and is VERY LOUD. Ear plugs don't help much.
Hi Norman, We are glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay, but we are sorry that the mattress was so uncomfortable for you! The homeowner strives to provide a comfortable mountain getaway for all of their guests, and they have replaced the mattress in the studio since your stay. We would love the chance to host you again, so please keep us in mind the next time that you visit Mount Shasta. Best, the Evolve Team
studio with loft
While we did enjoy our stay in Mt Shasta, we probably would not return to this rental for the following reasons. The rental is a mere 2 blocks from the I-5 freeway. Even with the windows closed you can always hear the freeway. We like windows open so found the noise annoying. The bed sags in the middle. We made do by placing a folded blanket down the middle. The kitchen is too sparsely furnished and had no microwave. There was no bulb in the light over the sink. The carpet badly needed shampooing. The steps to the deck and the deck are a very sad presentation to the place. Overall, we still enjoyed our stay, but would not choose to stay here again.
Wanted to enjoy this place but, just too many negative issues
-Ants all over kitchen
-2 of 4 burners on kitchen stove did not work
-food crumbs in cabinets and drawers
-frayed, shoddy living room upholstery
-no hangers in closet
-no hair dryer
-cute loft with horrible bed...like a hammock which tumbled 2 bodies to its center...made for 2 VERY uncomfortable nights
What a shame, this place could be nice if someone cared and gave attention to simple details such as the above, at minimum.
Nancy, we're sorry to hear your stay fell short of your expectations. The homeowners appreciate constructive feedback, but we and the owners feel this rating is unwarranted. They had inspected the unit the night before your arrival and found no evidence of ants. This time of year they can spring up unexpectedly, but we apologize for the inconvenience. They were not aware of any issue with the stove burners but will look into it and make sure they are functioning correctly. This is also the first complaint they have received regarding mattress comfort as they are less than six months old. Mattress comfort can be a subjective matter, but we're sorry you felt they were uncomfortable. Although there is no hair dryer at this property, the owner will be adding some hangers for added convenience. As evidenced in the previous reviews, we're confident this studio will continue to host many satisfied guests! Best, the Evolve Team
Very nice and cozy place minutes from downtown Mt Shasta
My fiancé and I went up to Mt Shasta for a long weekend and we both haven’t been in that direction in a very long time. The place was very nice and cozy. We both liked the bed on the loft area.
We also went up to the Ashland Oregon area only about an hour and 15 minutes from Mt Shasta. Very fun weekend and we can’t wait to go back!
