We spent one night after a day of exploring the wonderful redwoods. We were greeted by a very friendly desk clerk who informed us we had been upgraded to the King Suite with a jacuzzi since there were plumbing issues with our assigned room. The room itself was quite large and a mixed bag. The bed was super comfortable and... More

Just traveling on vacation. The bed was very comfortable. And the night clerk Tara was amazing. It was so nice to see a smiling friendly face after traveling for several hours. She was not just extremely friendly, but she was very helpful.

My family spent just one night, passing Fortuna on our way to California. Our room was spacious and clean. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The kids liked the indoor pool. We had some promlems with one of our beds (a broken leg caused it to partially collapse). Staff couldn't fix it and no handyman was available because... More

I was not thrilled when I arrived by looks alone. I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff, clean rooms and the dog friendly status. If I had just driven down the street I would not have picked the hotel but when I registered and went to the room all was better.

Thanks for letting everyone know that they need to stop in at The Redwood. Our staff truly makes all the difference here. Since going independent 12 months ago we continue to make improvements to the the property and that will definitely include new signage and landscaping out front. Safe travels. More

We stayed in Fortuna after a full day of hiking in the Redwoods. We stayed in the King suite which included a jacuzzi and was greatly appreciated after a full day hiking. I would have given it 5 stats however the breakfast selection was lacking and the hot breakfast items looked like they had been overcooked and microwaved.

So glad you were able to enjoy your room after enjoying the redwoods. Our full,hot, complimentary breakfast is always something we are striving to improve. We are currently in the process of tasting and testing new items. We want to offer a great way for everyone to start the day. (By the way, no microwaves for breakfast). Safe travels. More

First off, the Hotel is fine. Not super fancy but clean, good beds, decent wifi, etc. The reason for this review is to point out what a great job a particular employee did during our stay. Tara was working the front desk when we checked in. She was friendly and efficient. My wife and I followed her suggestion and went... More

Room was nice. Reservations for for 2 adults and two children....just 2 wash cloths. Corridor long and very dark...kind of scary. They told us NO smoking their property EXCEPT by the front door way where guests checks in...so had to step over the line onto the Chunky Monkey parking lot. They told us there would be a $200.00 fine if... More

Jeffrey D, Owner at The Redwood Fortuna Riverwalk Hotel, responded to this review

All of the rooms at The redwood are non-smoking. If someone smokes five feet from their room then the smoke goes into all the surrounding rooms. We have chosen the front of the property for our smoking area so that any smokers are away from all our rooms. The staff let's everyone know this upon check-in so there is no... More

Nice, clean facility with a friendly and accommodating staff. I would consider staying here again for the dog show in Ferndale again. The closeness of the Riverwalk trail is fantastic for walking dogs

The room was comfortable and quiet overall. Nice yard for taking dogs out to potty or relax for a bit. Friendly service. Easy on and off the freeway and a short distance from Ferndale and the fairgrouds where my event was held.

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
