I am a traveling doctor in an area with a lot of need for medical services. This trip wasn't planned and I was expecting to be elsewhere. I was welcomed here and staff were understanding of my situation. I think the decor here tops any other motel in this area by far. I am comfortable and relaxed here; awesome under... More

This place was clean, the staff super friendly, the beds comfortable, the free apples from their orchard divine. Breakfast was ok. We arrived late and did not use the pool, but it looked AOK. Overall a winner in my book.

All the staff was knowledgeable and kind. The owner was welcoming and everyone was hard working! Very comfortable beds and an excellent breakfast that included fresh berries with yogurt and nuts. Above all else, the pet friendly environment was spectacular. Thank you for a great time!

We were traveling with a pet and they were accommodating with a $20 pet fee. Front desk was very helpful and our room was quiet and clean. I was not impressed with the soap/shampoo/conditioner dispensers and we could have used more towels as we were wet from being caught outdoors in a downpour and the guest directory said no housekeeping...

This hotel is not a 4.6, but is still a good value. The breakfast is substandard. There were not enough selections for breakfast. The food was too sweet. The oatmeal was pre-sweetened. I don't use sugar. There was no orange juice.

I am very happy that you thought The Redwood was a good value. We do not sweeten the oatmeal. We offer the oatmeal warm and allow our guest to add raisins, fruit, milk, yogurt and even sugar. But we by no means sweeten the oatmeal ourselves. We do have OJ that is blended with guava juice. At breakfast we offer... More

The only negative was the water in the pool was very cold and there was no water in the hot tub. Both the pool and hot tub were high on our priority list when we booked. The room size was very comfortable and the requested roll-away bed was brought to us.

I am very sorry about the pool temperature. That issue has been corrected and we will continue to have a warm pool for all our guests. The spa is currently closed and the damages are going to take at least a month to repair. So happy you enjoyed the great service. Safe travels. More

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.

So-so. Typical humboldt service. Let's make as much as possible from people that aren't on government handout so that we ma survive. Anyways, the best aspect of this place is their shower soap and shampoo. Good luck.

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
