We were on our road trip looking for a place to spend the night with some things to do and this place was recommended to us by a worker where we got gas. We were happy. The room was very, very nice. (We got one of the suites) Also had a nice view. There are some bars and restaurants downstairs... More

We saw the positing for this place on the roadside and after day of motorcycling we were ready for a nice place and we got it. The security staff were very friendly directing to the front desk, informing us there were rooms available and then directing us to safe parking for the bike. Not that it appeared that safety was...

Staying at Bear River Casino has got me interested in staying at more casinos. The beds are fantastically comfy. The bathrooms have HUGE showers so there is enough room for everyone (including my kids 5 & 3.) The kids really enjoy the pool, which has a great view of Ferndale. It's not a large pool, but the kids enjoy it.... More

My husband and I decided to drive the 101 and found this lovely resort south of Eureka. The hotel is rustic and welcoming and is a smoke-free environment. Our room was large and modern with a beautiful shower. The indoor pool and spa were welcoming after our long drive. The restaurant is convenient with great food. The employees go above... More

This is a great place, even if you don't plan to gamble. The rooms are clean and spacious and the restaurant offers great food for a reasonable price. The hotel is outside of Eureka and it's a ten-minute drive to the ocean (so save some money and forget the ocean- view rooms... The ocean is barely visible from the hotel!).... More

We kind of had the idea that we would at least be able to see the ocean from the hotel since it was described as an ocean view room, but even from the 4th floor it was no where in sight. Instead, we had a very nice view of a convenience store and a couple of houses. I realize they... More

We reserved an oceanview suite. Our "view" was of the rooftop of the Porte-cochère, but if you stretched to the very right side of the window, you could see the ocean way, way, far away over the roof. Our room was lovely and very clean. The biggest problems we encountered were surly attitudes from most of the staff we encountered.... More
