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

HI Jarochitas2, Thanks for staying with us and for leaving us some feedback. We're glad to hear the kids had fun in the pool area and that you enjoyed your meals. Personally, I love our food too! We're always telling John he needs to work more but he seems to think 60-70 hours a week is enough! Crazy right? haha... More

In rm water bottles cost $3... no fridge.. no microwave. Not much of a view of ocean. Paid $117 for a basic king ocean view room. No breakfast buffet. Housekeeping was still cleaning at 7:30 pm. They blocked the hall with two carts side by side. Pool very small and was filled with bout 15 kids with no parental control.... More

This is a new, much needed hotel in this area. Pros: Starting with the parking, it is covered with elevator access to the hotel. The staff is very friendly, check in was with no problem even when we were a bit early. Our room was located on the 2nd floor, originally we had reserved a room with Mountain View but... More

We stopped here on a drive from Los Angeles to Ashland and it was a good pit stop. It's certainly not a luxury hotel but it's very clean and the people that work there are friendly. The casino was a little lacking and I do think you'd probably do better to pick one of the charming towns nearby instead but... More

We stayed here on our way through the Redwoods last week. I made our reservation over a month ago. While checking in, the staff informed me that they would be unable to issue us any room keys, since was down. But, whenever we were ready, someone would walk us up to our room and let us in. So, we unloaded... More

My wife & I were returning home to Washington along Hwy 101. We did not have reservations since we did not know where we would stop. As we were nearing Eureka, my wife googled hotels and Bear River looked interesting so we booked a room. We have to say this was one of the nicest rooms we have ever stayed... More

It's a beautiful hotel. Very new. Plush bedding. Large bathroom. It is a casino though. Very smoky lobby and casino. Sad clientele in casino. Ocean view cost $20 more. Ocean view is about 4-6 miles away! They put a large bright gas station in next door. Bright lights all night and the constant sound of cars pulling in!

Hi Txhicchic, We appreciate you choosing us and taking the time to leave some feedback of your experience. We have received similar feedback about the occasional smoke smell in the lobby.

When we walked into the hotel the first thing we noticed was the smell of smoke. The hotel is non smoking but the smell of cigarettes wafting from the casino was a big turn off. We were on a road trip and were looking forward to the jacuzzi and pool after our long car ride. Unfortunately we were not able... More
