This hotel looks great in the photos and in the actual lobby, and even the rooms look okay, except the beds look bad (sunken in middle) and are really, really bad in actuality as well. This is our second time staying here and the only reason my husband and I stayed one night here again was that it was Christmas... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night during a road trip from Portland to San Francisco, and were happy with our stay. It was ideally situated since it's right off the 101 freeway, but still far enough back that we really didn't hear the traffic. The room was very reasonably priced (I think we paid $79 for the...

On our way back from Healdsburg, CA we stopped for the here night in Fortuna, CA. The friendly and helpful staff offered us locally grown apples upon sign in and the rate were very reasonable, very nice and clean. Love the shampoo, conditioner, and soap dispensers. Would recommend for any travelers.

I've stayed at this hotel when it was a Holiday Inn Express and now they have gone independent and can I say they couldn't have done better. It smells better it looks cleaner and best of all the price is better than before. The breakfast is handsdown better than any IHG or Marriott i've stayed at before. Love the dispenser's... More

The pool and sauna were not working and had been non operational for over a year yet the web site shows as a perk. Many flies in the room and lobby area. around the free breakfast. board games available.

I have owned this property for 6 + years. The pool has probably been closed a total of 2 weeks in that time. Pool hours are 8 am - 10 pm daily. Hot tub has been out of order (and commented on everywhere, many times). Hot tub reference has been removed from booking sites. We are now in the process... More

Sorry that you have not enjoyed our conversion to an independent hotel. We have tried to make decisions based on the area as well as focusing on our staff and better value decisions. I personally enjoy Eel River Brewery and Springville Steak, plus the restaurants in Ferndale. We are the same ownership and the same great staff and we will... More

We had a very good experience at The Redwood Fortuna Riverwalk Hotel. I think you are located in a very accessible location. It was very easy to get to the Avenue of the Giants from your place. If we were ever in your area , we would stay at your hotel.
