5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We had to stay here on short notice and were very happy with the quality and comfort. The rooms were spacious, clean, modern, comfortable. The beds were clean and comfortable. The private patio was a pleasant place to take morning coffee by the pool. The bath, shower, kitchenette were all in great working order. THe complimentary breakfast had a huge variety of delicious offerings. We missed the wine and cheese event, but given the friendly, accommodating staff and the high quality of everything else, I imagine it would have been lovely. The pool and hot tub are great. This hotel felt a little like a luxury hotel to this family traveling on a budget.

What a friendly staff! We checked in to this motel on Easter Sunday, we arrived before check in time and they were very accommodating! They had a happy hour set up in the lovely garden room. Much to our surprise they also offered turkey, ham, and salad. They knew it would be hard to find a place open for dinner on Easter Sunday so they provided a wonderful meal for their guests. I will definitely stay here again!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We arrived late in the afternoon after searching for some pet-friendly hotels along the Avenue of the Giants. One of the few choices was the BW Humboldt House, and we were very pleased with the service and cleanliness. Garberville is not much of a destination and is full of the down-and-out who appear to have all just fallen head-first off a moving freight train. The Humboldt House configuration allows for one to park a car out of sight of the wandering street people and the rooms are quiet and well-appointed. The breakfast buffet is complete with all the usual high-carb choices, but also includes some egg dishes and fruit. Several others had commented that this is really the only acceptable hotel in town and our afternoon drive-by of the alternatives confirmed the opinion. In fact, as we passed one of the "other" hotel offerings in this town, we noticed a local gent standing in a flower bed, perhaps practicing yoga, or maybe just impersonating a potted plant. He may have been the mayor, but we didn't ask.

We stayed here in Late March 2013. Location was easy to find on Redwood Dr. just a short drive from the 101. Located just 5 or so mins. North of Richardson Grove and places you right at the South end of the Avenue of The Giants which is why we stayed in the area.

Inn staff checked us in quickly and
we were happy to find a spacious top floor room with a pleasant view of the pool and spa area.

This is a quiet location.It may be Downtown Garberville.But thankfully it's Garberville.
Beds were clean and comfortable ( I always check under and around mattresses)
We pulled in after 7 pm ,so many local Cafe's were closed. We ordered food from the Italian Restaurant that shares a parking lot with the Best Western.Food was nothing to Dream about . Delivery to our room was quick.

Bathroom was clean and modern. Tub/Shower combo.

Free Breakfast was fine, really tasty Waffles! Finest Hotel Waffles in our recent two week trip.
Check out was smooth and within 5 mins. or so we were back amongst living Giants that are sure to inspire even the most Stoic Mall dweller.

During a trip around California, we found this as a last-minute stay on our way to Redwoods. We were very pleasantly surprised and would absolutely recommend this hotel. I gave this hotel 5 stars because if you are looking for a hotel in this range, you know you're not getting an extremely expensive resort with all amenities, but rather a somewhat-budget hotel that is clean, comfortable and fulfills its purpose.

The front desk staff could not have been more helpful or pleasant, quickly helping us with a light issue in our room and recommending a place for dinner. They were superb!

When we were there, they were having a cheese and wine event which was great! We stopped by the dining area, where they had snacks, cheese and crackers and a couple wines for sampling. It was staffed by the nicest lady and we really did enjoy this special treat.

Our room was sufficient and very clean. We were very surprised at the hospitality and quality of this hotel, since we felt like we were in the middle of nowhere.

We'd absolutely recommend this place and would stay here again if we are ever in the area!
