booked this motel late in the day based on previous reviews. It was great. We booked in at 9pm at night and the staff were extremely helpful. Bit worried about being on the main road but didn't hear any traffic noise. The room was better than some of the 4 star accommodation we have stayed in. Had a table and... More

What an economical place to stay. We were pleasantly surprised by the condition of the room. Room was clean. There was laminate in the room so there was no funky mildewy motel smell. The gentleman at the front desk was very pleasant. Would recommend it without hesitation.

Heading down 101 with no reservation in Brookings, we called this place and the owner had one room remaining. We took it. Very pleased with the cleanliness of the room and how spacious it was. Only issue for us was the room was right next to the main street, which doubles as U.S. 101 and gets quite rumbly in the... More

After a long, enjoyable day in the California redwoods, coming home to Wild Rivers Motor Lodge was a welcome respite. Just a short drive north of Crescent City, CA, Bookings is a quiet hamlet right on the Pacific Ocean with a quaint downtown and many wonderful seafood restaurants. It has recently added a large Fred Meyer store to enable the... More

The room was basically decent /clean (except for a few brown hairs in the bed which as a blond - they were not mine). But I just switched the pillows. Dog friendly so that was a plus for us. The guy at the front was far from friendly but perhaps he's just shy. No real complaints and it was a... More

Thank you for your review. We are very happy that you found the room “decent/clean”. In our pet rooms, we spend extra time in cleaning to avoid pet hairs left over in the room from pet to pet. We do change linens on beds, pillows, and of course towels daily, and in our pet rooms take extra care in this... More

Passing through on a road trip along the coast. The guy that checked us in was nice. Our room was very clean and lots of room. PET FRIENDLY!! We like small motels so we can park right in front of our room for easy loading and unloading. I would definitely stay here again.

Overnight trip to fish. Moderate price, good location (5 minutes to port), very clean, comfortable. Our dogs were welcome! Not the mariotts, but not $300 either. This worked quite well. Next to hwy 101, a bit noisy (we were next to road), but rare hot day in Brookings so AC masked the sound.

We stayed for 1 night in July 2015. The motel looks not overwhelming but the rooms are ok and clean, but nothing special. The guy at the frontdesk was not exactly prince charming but we were only there to get our room keys. Lots of restaurants in walking distance

Nice clean room with plenty of space and a box fan we used to block out noise. Pleasant helpful staff and an at home feel. Hand held shower, nice fluffy towels with bath and body works soaps,lotions, shampoo. Only coffee in room. Would stay here again.

This is a dog friendly hotel and was a welcome and perfectly adequate place to rest our heads after a long hot drive up the coast. It looks like a dump from the outside but it's not.
