First off. I would stay here again. The rooms are big and the beds are nice and comfy. The location is about ten miles outside of Eureka. If traveling South through Eureka, remember to fill up and do any shopping while in town. The gas station at the Casino charges about .20 more. (Some casinos have discounted gas.) You might... More

Stopped in on way home to Sacramento area from Southern Oregon coast. Eureka motels nice but surrounded by sketchy people and homeless. Bear River is off the beaten path in a beautiful area away from the riff-raff. My twin 13 year olds and I had a great new room. Reminded me of a nice Marriot or Holiday Inn Express at... More

Got a great internet rate for two nights on a room at Bear River Casino a Hotel. I had to go alone so safety was a big concern. The room was spotless, beautifully decorated. Underground parking with security cameras, elevator straight up to my floor. Had dinner in the restaurant both nights and it was great. Probably one of the... More

We spent one night here as we traveled north from San Francisco. Having made no reservation, I'm sure we paid a premium price for our deluxe king room. But the woman who checked us in could not have been more efficient and professional (despite being interrupted by a guest with a strange microwave request...). She suggested that we join the...

Wow. Impressed. Customer service, including housekeeping and security, very friendly and welcoming. Literally, your greeted by all. Room is very nice. Large selection of channels on TV.

We picked this Hotel/Casino because we did a mini road trip and like to gamble. Not a whole lot of hotels in the area, read the reviews and after booking Bear River we had second thoughts, but we still kept our plans. Yes this Casino did have a smoky smell and they are replacing the air system and doing some... More

My boyfriend and I stopped here after a very long day in the car. This was a pit stop on the way to San Francisco and I am so happy we stopped here!

For the price and accommodations, I would definitely recommend this place. I had price checked a room with 2 queen sized beds in the area with other hotels and they were charging a lot more. Plus they were run down with a lot of shady people for the area. Now this being a casino, I;m not saying that there aren't... More

This hotel is an excellent value in this area. The price was great and the rooms were clean, modern and comfortable. You also have entertainment for the evening and are in a convenient location to all the attractions of the area. I'd definitely stay here again.
