Rooms were fine just be aware it's pet friendly. So in the morning we were covered with fleas. Talked to manager she said they spray all rooms and I must be mistaken I told her to just walk thru the room with no so is and see for yourself I won't stay here again and take chance

Yes we do allow pets. We have a pet policy that all guests must adhere to while at The Redwood. Upon departure the front desk notifies the housekeeping staff of a pet that has checked out. We use a special product in that room as part of the cleaning process. As has been noted many times, we take great pride... More

This was a great location. We went to see the Avenue of the Giants but thanks to the suggestions at the Fortuna we also visited the Loleta Cheese Factory, beautiful Ferndale and a few breweries. We had a great time. They are well equipped for dogs and the indoor pool is gorgeous and warm!

We were traveling from San Francisco up to the Redwoods and this was a perfect stop for us. The hotel had received good reviews, was very clean and located close to food and shopping. Beds were comfortable. Staff was helpful and pleasant.

Wasn't the worst place but just not the nicest. Like the fact they use refillable toiletries, but the bath gel and lotion had such a strong medicinal tea tree smell I couldn't use either. Room was very expensive for then quality. Stayed here as our plan for night lots of beer at Eel River brewery across the lot and wanted... More

So glad our location worked out for your opportunity to enjoy the beers that Eel River Brewery has to offer. They are a great neighbor and the fact you don't have to get back in your car to eat and drink is a big plus. We are very happy with the dispensers in the bathrooms. We use spa grade amenities...

Our stay was very pleasant. The check in was easy, our room was clean, bed was comfortable and it was quiet. We had a good meal at the brewpub which was just across the parking lot. We would stay again.

A former chain hotel (LaQuinta Inn?) that has been bought by local private owners who have added several pleasant personal touches. Within 1/2 mile of Hwy 101 but quiet location within 1 minute walk of 2mile walking path along the Eel River. Great breakfast too!

Yes, indeed, we were a former chain hotel, a Holiday inn Express, and made our move to independence in July of 2013. As owners, we are fortunate to have been in Fortuna for 6 years (as of July). Thanks for noticing the changes we are incorporating to make The Redwood a great redwood destination hotel. We always want to make... More

The Redwood is fortunate that Gina has been with us for over 7 years and most currently as General Manager. We greatly appreciate the fact that you choose to return to us, especially after our change to an independent hotel. We still have the same great staff and they are happy to make everyone fresh coffee! Safe travels and we... More

We liked that the room was clean and practical and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We asked for a room at a higher floor and we have received an upgraded one without additional fees. A nice touch: cream dispenser. The fridge was a bit too noisy and we unplugged it. Also the AC was too loud and we... More

Every staff member was incredibly friendly and helpful - including the housekeeping staff. Rooms were clean and spacious. As a former member of the hotel business you notice the little things.This is an affordable hotel without the cheap towels, linens and minimal housekeeping that you typically find. There is a definite pride of ownership.

The staff is what makes the difference when choosing a hotel in Fortuna and Humboldt. The pride of ownership comes from the top down. As an owner I am very proud of what we have done and where we are headed but that pride also is shown through the staff! We are very fortunate to have the GM, front desk,... More

We only had 1 issue with the hotel and that is the upstairs. The ceilings are very thin. The neighbors that were upstairs didn't seem to understand "courtesy" of others. The staff and the owners were so very nice and welcoming. It is a place we would stay again but having dogs we are put in the downstairs. We are... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
What can you expect from Fortuna's independent hotel? You can expect a small scale hotel that left the corporate, franchise environment to offer an experience with a proud sense of place. You can expect a hotel that is evolving as we make decisions that are aligned with Humboldt County's rich heritage and history. You can expect a little of the "un-expected".Located off US 101 in an area with traveler services, The Redwood seeks to be your one-of-a-kind choice amongst the small grouping of franchise hotels, restaurants, and gas stations in Fortuna. Steps from this small grouping of businesses are the final miles of Eel River, before it reaches the Pacific. Our central location serves as the ideal base camp to visit the many state parks and enjoy other outdoor activities in Humboldt County. ... more   less
