The hotel is conveniently located near the highway and some decent restaurants. The bed was good, the room was clean and the jacuzzi a nice asset. Not the place to eat a gourmet breakfast. Value for money.

Room smelt horrible and wasnt very clean. Our last visit before this our sheets were dirty and had holes. We won't be back as the quality of this property has declined and prices of rooms has increased.

Very sorry about your experience at The Redwood. Our sheets come from an outside linen service and I do apologize for the quality. We are working with housekeeping to ensure that the sheets do not go onto the bed in this state. And we will continue to inspect the rooms so that if anything is wrong it will be corrected.... More

This place was awesome! Huge, clean rooms, nice pool, very quiet! The desk clerk, Amanda was the best! She managed to hook us up when no one else would or could....a very nice, genuine person, and very positive asset to this hotel. Amazing breakfast, too!!! Thank you!

This was a very nice place to stay, across the street from a great pub, and with a nice heated indoor pool. Rooms were clean, people were nice... only problem was the remote for the TV wouldn't let us play a movie we had on a USB. Other than that - super. Kids were happy. So were we. :)

Glad the entire family enjoyed the stay at The Redwood. Sorry about the issue with the movie. The tvs do have manual buttons for channel and volume and that might have corrected the issue. We know when the kids are happy... everyone is happy! Safe travels. More

We wanted a spot where we could dive up the coast towards Oregon and still drive through the avenue of the giants. This hotel is in the perfect spot. The hotel clerk was very friendly and check I. Was a breeze. Our room was much larger than I expected. Clean and with nice bedding and furniture. It had a small... More

we had a second story room in the back. No street noises let us have a restful night sleep. Only down side was that hot tub was out of order. It would have been nice after our long hikes in the redwoods.

Glad you got to enjoy the beauty of the redwoods. I apologize for the hot tub being out of order. It unfortunately has a leak and will require extensive work to the surrounding area so we will be repairing it this winter. Safe travels. More

Our event booked many rooms here for our speakers were traveling from all over the US. We were so pleased with the staff at the front desk and with the accommodation. Tara at the front desk is an absolute jewel. Friendly professional, and helpful - you just couldn't ask for more in hotel front desk service. The room itself is... More

Thanks for recognizing our great staff and our green efforts. Tara has been a great addition to our team! The dispensers in the bathrooms allowed us the opportunity to stop wasting product, reduce our additions to the landfill and have spa grade amenities in the rooms. We have had fun as an independent hotel and will continue to make improvements.... More

It is hard to find a place to stay that allow dogs in the rooms. My wife really wanted to bring the dogs and it worked pretty good. This is the second trip we have made with the dogs. The Riverwalk was just across the street. We enjoyed that.

had to replace our keys over and over almost up to 3-4 times a day as they would just stop working a bit of a hassle running back and forth to lobby. Also, need an elevator and beds were broken in room
