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

We felt great about this place from the moment we stopped. The room was spacious and comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. They even had some gluten free options in the free breakfast. The location was convenient to the highway.

This was a great value and a comfortable room for a group of us road-weary travelers. With a family of 5, large rooms are always welcome, and there was plenty of room for all of us. Another nice touch was the toiletries available in the shower and sink; not the cheap throwaways most other hotels offer, but good quality products... More

Large rooms, very clean and super nice helpful staff. You can see and feel that the owners/staff are very passionate about this hotel and keep it up nicely. Free breakfast and WiFi. Only stayed one night, passing through but would stay here again.

...we loved our room, but unfortunately, we were above the lobby and there were people talking ALL night. This put a damper on what could have been a wonderful stay. The location was OK, nothing great.

The staff are all awesome people. Friendly, accommodating and always with a smile. The perk for our Anniversary on Friday made our stay that much more special. This is the 2nd time we have stayed on our way down to the Ave. of the Giants. After a 9 hr drive, it was the perfect location to get off the road... More

Overall this was a nice hotel the staff was friendly and the room clean. The problem is with the surrounding area. There are bums everywhere. When you walk the river walk, bums. When you drive into town, bums. We constantly had people walking through the parking lot and around customers cars. This was once a nice area designed for tourists,... 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
