Stayed here for a wedding. It's a drive to get here--41/2 horse from SF up the 101. The Inn is historic and quaint. The rooms are large as are the bathrooms. We had a claw foot tub--taking a shower in it is an experience. The Inn is only 10 minutes from the Avenue of the Giants. Take the drive, stop... More

This is pretty much the only place to stay in Scotia. There are more modern hotels a few miles down the road in Fortuna. We really enjoyed our stay here and would stay again. It is a old hotel (Built in the 20's) and has 'old' issues . . like very low hot water pressure in our room (#201) ....... More

2 night stay in room 209. The good: *Clean room *Charming lobby *20 minute drive to Humboldt Redwoods State Park (reason for our visit) The bad: *Tap water tasted terrible (metallic). Had to go to the market conveniently across the street to buy filtered water just to brush teeth. *Water barely flowed from sink. Shower water pressure was fine. *TV... More

I was sucked right in by the promise of "charm" and "location on Avenue of the Giants." I must say, this establishment has neither. On the plus side, I loved the layout of our room: two queen rooms connected by a shared bathroom. Traveling with our young daughters, it was nice having them safely close, but also some privacy. However,... More

This is an historic building and we understood it was not going to have all the modern features. We did expect our room to be clean! The bathroom was dirty when we checked in. The toilet needed to be flushed, there was hair in the tub and on the mat. The carpet needed to be vacuumed. There's no air conditioning,... More

Our first clue should have been when people from CA said, "where's Scotia?". Our second clue should have been the construction signs outside. This place would be fine if it were $99 a night. Or if it disclosed that it had no air conditioning. Or if it told you the rooms are incredibly loud mostly because you have to keep... More

Just off Hwy 101 and south of Eureka is Scotia, formerly a company lumber town. The hotel still has the feeling of comfort and elegance. Each room is furnished beautifully in period style. Comfortable, with excellent staff assistance and nearby grocery and pharmacy. Tours of the mill is a must

Hotel is a good stop after you visit the Avenue of the Giants in Northern California. Basic, with charm and clean. We got an upgrade to a huge room with high ceilings and a huge bathroom, updated. Located in a quiet town.

Although we never made it to the Scotia Inn, they were very understanding of our situation. My husband caught a virus on recent trip to California and we were stuck in Oroville and couldn't make our reservation at The Scotia Inn, I called an explained our situation and they graciously cancelled our reservation with no penalty.
