Thank God I ran into several good people who recommended stopping in Ferndale, because otherwise it is very easy to simply drive right on past it on Hwy. 101 on your way to Eureka. But boy oh boy, that view when you drive down main street past one fabulous Victorian storefront after another is a sight to behold! The Inn... More

We have stayed at the Victorian Inn twice now, travelling from Australia to California. On both occasions it was excellent, welcoming staff, beautifully maintained and cleaned rooms, nothing to fault, they accommodated our every need and gave us excellent advise on what to see particularly the Lost Coast. The owner Lowell was extremely helpful and thoughtful but in a very... More

My wife and I come here at least once a year. Jenny and Lowell, the owners could not be more accommodating. The rooms are clean and comfortable and there are a nice variety to choose from. The VI restaurant is excellent as well. This is a great place to take a break to.

The Inn was great. although a little confusion by where to initially go for registration, as it is in the Jewelry shop where you register. I knew there would be steps, but be warned there are a lot of short steep steps, so if you are carrying lugage, and not in good shape, then this may not be the best... More

My husband and I also stayed in Sylvia's room earlier this month. Had we wanted to lounge in the room or watch TV, this room would not have been suitable. But since our goal was to explore Ferndale, we enjoyed the convenience of the VI, taking our walks before and after a satisfying dinner at the VI restaurant and in... More

The rooms were very clean and up to date. The restaurant had a great variety of food and was very good. Nice bar selection as well. Thanks for a great... More

On my last birthday, December 29, I told my family I wanted to visit the Victorian Inn in Ferndale. I had seen this hotel while I was on a short visit to the Redwoods during the summer and vowed I would return for a short stay. My husband, my son and I stayed in a unit that was perfect for... More

The Inn is an old building... it's very difficult to maintain a huge, aging place like this. That said, the owners do a terrific job of keeping the place clean and well maintained. The room we stayed in had areas in need of touch up paint, but other than that, the hotel is a wonder to behold. It's quiet, cozy,... More

Took a trip to see the Redwoods and couldn't find anything in Eureka, so Ferndale popped up and reviews about this Inn seemed pretty good. Quirky town with nice victorian's, if I went back it would be for only 1 night. We arrived and the woman at the front desk was in a hurry, we had brought our AAA 2014... More

These guests were the perfect guests and, as all guests do, deserved a much better greeting and experience with us. As one can see by looking at the other 302 reviews, most travelers and guests enjoy a much better stay. The person whoi greeted them and checked them in at the front desk, who was the same person who helped... More

The room was pleasant. The restaurant food was delicious. Although we didn't have time to do any sightseeing, there are alot of historic buildings on the street. It's a great location to explore the Redwoods from
