My wife and I stayed here for one night on our way through Eureka. The casino is nice and well equipped. Where this hotel really excells is the restaurant. We arrived on Thursday, which was pasta night. They had a pick n mix pasta buffet, in which you chose what meat and sauce you wanted and the chef cooked it... More

If you are thinking of staying in Eureka, stay here at Bear River instead. It is much nicer and safer. No view or really pretty surroundings, but the rooms are clean and non smoking. The hotel is new and the beds are nice. The pillows are hard round rocks. The shower no bath was large and worked well. The staff... More

My regular hotels were all booked for the night I needed so I stayed here based on a coworkers recommendation. Overall the room was just fine, even though it was above the truck delivery entrance which would have been a problem had I wanted to sleep in. Dinner at the restaurant was pretty good, the bartender seemed a little flustered... More

We were on our way down the 101 and just spent one night here. All of the employees we had contact with were very professional and warm. The room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom was immense. The pillows were a bit lumpy and the AC seemed not too efficient. It was fine for the night and would have... More

We stayed 1 night after a long day of driving. The room was clean, although it had no view whatsoever. We ate at the restaurant - the service was good and so was the food, although somewhat overpriced. Our room and the restaurant were smoke-free, but the lobby certainly was not. We did not use the casino. I decided to... More

We paid extra for the ocean view, and that turned out to be a waste. This hotel is not near the ocean, so the view is kind of a joke. Yes, technically you can see a little bit of water way off in the distance, but it’s not very interesting, and certain not worth any extra money. We got some... More

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.

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
