We spent two nights here as we travelled up the California coast. The hotel was built in the 1950s using one curly redwood tree. The wood has been well-maintained and the place really looks nice. It has that cool retro feel, and walking into the room really felt like stepping back in time. The doors even use actual keys - no plastic swipe-cards here! We had room #5. It was very spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and the blackout curtains helped us sleep very well. The room didn't have a bathtub, which was kind of a bummer.
The woman at the front desk was friendly when we checked in, and she helped us find a good place to eat for dinner. The hotel has a big binder full of menus and the staff had put stars and smiley faces by their favorites. They didn't offer breakfast (just coffee), but that wasn't a big deal.
The hotel was a good value (we were there in the off-season, though), and we'd definitely stay here again.
