My husband and I recently took a 10 day roadtrip around Northern(ish) California in late June/early July of 2014. I used Trip Advisor extensively in selecting hotels for this adventure. This review is part of that vacation. We were here for 2 nights while visiting the Redwoods. Redwoods: Awesome; Hotel: not so much. Quiet for being so close to the... More

Everything in Eureka is expensive even though it is a dinky little town. This was the only hotel in the rang of what we were willing to spend. Room smelled bad, breakfast was sub-par, and the room was just barely functional.

This hotel was awful! We stayed in room 130 and the smell upon entering the room was overwhelming. The carpet was stained and sticky, there was no screen on the window and the coverlet on the bed had a white dried residue from the previous occupants. The cost of room was way overpriced for the hotel. Upon checking out the... More

Once again had a good stay at the Clarion Hotel in Eureka. We arrived about 3 PM. Staff were friendly and check-in was a breeze. We had the light dinner of soup & salad provided. Our room was comfortable especially the bed. We took a dip in the pool and retired for the night. Breakfast was more than adequate. We... More

After a long day we got into Eureka and decided to take just about the first motel we saw. The room at the Clarion was large but basic. Actually it adequately met all of our needs for the evening. A clean room, a comfortable bed, a reasonable looking room but MOST IMPORTANTLY FREE WIFI. No problems with staying here again.... More

Great little gym and large laundry. Impressive breakfast and afternoon soup and... More

We were pleasantly surprised with the whole experience, some of the earlier reviews were critical, but not sure why. Desk staff were friendly and helpful. Room 302 and 304 were very quiet, beds were great, super accommodations. Light dinner and great breakfast buffet was a bonus, especially strawberries and whipped cream on the waffles. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here when our first choice was sold out. It is very mediocre. The room was adequate but the breakfast buffet had the worst food I have ever had. I would not stay here again. But the beds are comfortable and the price was a bargain. Free wireless.

We have stayed here three times previously and when we decided to meet some old friends from CA halfway between our homes in Eureka we came back. I like the location, the rooms are comfortable but could perhaps use some modernizing as other reviewers have stated. They have a nice lobby and an eating area with good snacks...a good breakfast...

Thank you for your honest review of your star. I understand the frustration regarding the internet issues, I use it myself when I am traveling. Our internet provider has been contacted and so has the provider of the wifi service to the hotel. They worked on the system the days you were here and a few days after. I do... More

Sadly, there are no Marriott or Hilton brand hotels in Eureka. That leaves you with Choice Hotel brands which tend to be lower end. Now, I have stayed at Quality Inns and found them suitable. Not great, but suitable. So, when my wife and I flew to Eureka to help step mother pack and move to Kansas, I used my... More
