We stayed here because we didn't plan ahead and the camp sites in the redwoods were full for the night we needed lodging. We got back to Orick late and everything was closed so we ate s'mores ingredients for dinner and the place felt very creepy, like you'd want a baseball bat under your pillow just in case. The door...

We didnt have a choice but to stay here for a night, the rate wasnt that great. The room had a terrible stench. We had to open all windows but didnt help much. Swimming pool didnt have water in it. The cafe food was ok. The town was beautiful though.

I don't know if it's the magic of the area, or the Awesome food we had at the Palm Cafe, but I LOVE Orick. We were told by an ex forest ranger to make sure to stop in Orick for the Lady Bird Johnson Grove, and Fern Canyon. So, we stopped there for a night on our way to bigger,... More

Here is the deal. It is July 4th weekend and we didn't reserve a room .... we just plain forgot. We drove for 125 miles looking for room and ended up sleeping in the car in Trinidad. It was crazy and when we woke up in the morning there were five other cars that probably had the same "no vacancy"... More

With this Motel being the only place still open in Oirck, there's not much choice. It looks warn-out and run down. And it is. I am no snob by any means, but this place was poor. The old guy on reception was uninterested in anything but the credit card. You would get headache using the pool, as it has no... More

Had to have a place for the night as all of the campgrounds were full. $90 gets you a warn out room with almost hot water and lots of soap but no shampoo. At least the bedding seemed to be clean. I do not recommend this place, make reservations and camp.

Orick, Ca, has the potential to be a nice place, as the gateway to the Redwoods. But, sadly, it is a dying, run-down town. There is no place I would consider staying overnight. I was disappointed in the Palm Cafe for food, after seeing some glowing reviews on this site. Even after inquiring about the pie, the waitress didn't offer... More

The Palm Cafe was recommended to us as a place to stop for a post hike snack if we liked pie. I love pie, but my husband doesn't. But, since he loves me, we stopped anyway. He actually ordered pie too, which shocked me. He devoured his blackberry a la mode, as I did my coconut cream. It was amazing.... More

Stopped for lunch while touring N. Calif coast and experienced the best fruit and cream pies we"ve ever eaten...we live in Florida and envy the locals in Orick. We were there with our children and grandchildren and were very pleased with the service as well as the amazing pie!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Palm Cafe and Motel in Orick and, while it was adequate, it and the whole town were surprisingly worn-down. We've visited quite a few national parks and have found most towns near parks benefit from the park visitors and their spending. Orick and the Palm motel don't seem to have had this... More
