This is a quiet budget gem. Biker-friendly. We arrived late and drenched to a friendly welcome, great bed avd clean room. Plus, without even having to ask, the clerk brought out a stack of bike rags. The location is just far enough from the highway to be very quiet. The price was a real value.

Spent two nights here in early September 2013 and was greeted by a very kind and knowledgeable staff who gave great recommendations for DJ's burgers down the road. The room was exceptionally clean; mini-fridge, microwave, and open WiFi, super comfy King bed. Very quiet here, too. About 10 minutes to Ave of the Giants.

This was nice place to stay. A little outdated, but clean. We reviewed this hotel online and did expect more. We were running late and Dave was very understanding. We wanted to stay near Rio Dell and this was a great location. Also, when we travel we try to stay at a locally owned place to help out the locals.

Re-read these reviews and I truly don't understand how so many people said how clean this place was. It was a throw back to the 70's gold carpet and burgundy sheets, cracked lino in the bath tiny closed in tiled shower, and not a nice smell. If I wasn't exhausted from our day and we had any other option, I... More

Stayed here just for two nights during our 22 day road trip around California and Nevada. Being from the UK, I had in my mind what a 'typical' roadside small family run motel would be like - and this did not disappoint. Dave, the owner, is a nice guy and very helpful. Although we have the same surname we are... More

We wanted to stay near the Redwoods but not in the bigger city. Rio Dell was centrally located. The town is very small with not much to do, but we were there only to sleep. The Humboldt Gables Motel was a very pleasant surprise. The outside was very modest -- in old motor inn style. But the rooms were nice... More

Stayed the night while traveling up 101. Originally looked for a hotel in Fortuna, but came across this motel in brochure on Avenue of the Giants. Read the reviews here and decided to give it a try. We are glad we did. Nice sized room, comfortable beds, decent TV stations, very clean, good wifi, helpful management. Not much right in... More

We stumbled on to the Humboldt while looking for a place to stay on our trip to Oregon. Most of the places we saw near the redwoods had mixed reviews and then we found the Humboldt! This motel is excellent. It is of the old style motor in where you park in front of your room. The room was tastefully... More

Very reasonable rates in a nice and quiet neighborhood. Spotless and well-kept and the bed was very very good. Manager Dave is very friendly and has lots of good info about the area. For instance the Pizza Factory and the Tonetta's café down the street, both very good.

In a very modest area, there is this old motel run by very friendly staff. Prices are very reasonable. The room is pristine clean. We got lots of information about the area from the proprietor, which led us to venture successfully into parts we never even knew about. A wonderful find and a surprisingly successful day.
