Old motel; needs complete remodel/update. Positive: everything worked in the room. Negative: 75$, should be closer to 40-50$. Garberville is very small. Two other motels with similar style/price in town, and two others that are too expensive for me (Benbow and Best Western). Just needed a place to sleep while visiting the Avenue of the Giants. The motel is just... More

Having said that, if you can afford the Benbow Inn, you'll be fine. After all, it isn't actually IN Garberville If not, and you can afford to stay at the Best Western, and to eat there, and stay in your car all the time you're not in the hotel you'll be fine If you can't afford the Best Western, you...

Go north or south ... It's worth the distance to avoid this hotel and this community!!! The bathroom in our room was dirty and disgusting. It was way expensive ... antiquated.. And no maintenance or upkeep has been done for a long time. The shower head was like a pipe coming out of the wall. The toilet seat had a... More

My partner and I recently visited from Australia and road tripped the West Coast of the USA. Searching for a late night place to rest our weary heads, we stumbled across Garberville and this disgraceful excuse for accommodation. Overpriced and unclean are probably the only words worth using to describe this place. Room was not cleaned from previous occupants (dog... More

Pros: Bed was comfortable. Cons: Not worth the price. We paid $79+taxes at the end of October. As soon as we opened the door we could detect an "unpleasant odor" (I believe it came from the linens). Prices in Garberville are very high compared to other places on the Oregon Coast. Make sure you get one of those hotel coupon... More

Usually overnight in Roadside Areas. Get to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the mountain air and atmosphere. Rest Stops only, between Santa Rosa, Calif., posted NO OVERNIGHT CAMPING. Asked for a room, near the grassy area, so would have less of a distance to walk, to water my Service Dogs. He said "okay". Ended up in the middle of... More

We had a terrible experience here. There are two sections to this motel. One is at the bottom of the parking lot and should be avoided at all costs! We were put in this section and it was horrible. The furniture was old and dirty, the bathroom tiles were disgusting, the floor by the toilet was dirty, the floor outside... More

If you are expexting a five star, five diamond quality room here, you are mistaken. You are definitely not going to get anything fancy at this price, but the room was clean, the staff was very friendly, and it was centrally located to the drive thru tree park and grandfather tree. The beds were large and comfortable, there was cable,... More

I stayed here a couple of years ago and it had good value (decent place at a low cost). However, it is now a dump. It seems to attract a lower class of people (probably because of the low price), and they facilities are old, the rooms not very secure, and it needs more insulation or something as there is...
