Although this hotel has subtle signage, we found it in the fog and checked in easily, even though our reservation couldn't be found. When we entered the room, I felt a huge sigh of relief and pleasure: no odors of cleaning or paint and an absolutely luxurious bed. We had a great night's rest, and want to recommend this hotel.

Gaia Hotels advertise themselves as "pet friendly", however they charge an outrageous additional $25 per night for pets. We stay at many pet friendly hotels nicer than Gaia, and the normal charge is $10 per night - or nothing at all unless there is damage caused by the pet. Also, there is no heat in the bathroom, which is very... More

We stayed here overnight on our way to Oregon and found it to be a wonderful find. Katie at the front desk was wonderful and even though we were situated next to the freeway we never heard the loud traffic sounds you would expect. The rooms are typical of a 4 star hotel and knowing that it's green, makes it... More

Hotel is nice, room is spacious and clean, and green features are commendable... but DEMAND a room away from the freeway. I've been here two nights and the noise of the CONSTANT traffic on I-5, plus the occasional train and plane noises have made it the worst stay I've experienced in any hotel. (The hotel was completely booked with 2... More

we enjoyed our stay in this hotel. staff were very helpful and it quiet even though it is located right by the freeway. the restaurant on site serves quality food for a good price. we're definitely going to stay there again.

The hotel is not too lavish, but small and nice. I appreciate the effort to conserve energy by the hotel with different features (e.g. energy saving light bulbs, nature celing light in the bathroom). Each room even has 3 small garbage bins for recycling! My kids love seeing the 4 beautiful swans (2 blacks and 2 white) in the pond... More

This hotel was a very plesant surprise after a long day of driving. We arrived late in the evening and were given a first floor room that overlooked the lake. After a restful and quiet nights' sleep, the next AM I walked around the grounds.......nicely landscaped with trees, shrubs and flowering plants, surrounding a free-form lake with fountains. In the... More

Very comfortable: loved the organic sheets, spacious room, outdoor patio and garden with resident white and black swan pairs, and skylight in bathroom. The use of green features is highlighted and it is interesting to see how this is interpretted by the hotel. The only slight negative was the fountains at night: they were too loud and dominant outside for... More

This was a very clean Eco Friendly Hotel. The Free Breakfast was excellent. I could have stayed longer but we were on a road trip. They even have a factory outlet stores near by.
