The Red Lion in Eureka is a good hotel. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The people at the front desk are friendly and very willing to help in any way they can. The breakfast is very good and, in some cases, free. Check with the hotel to make sure. Overall, my four night stay was fine.

We had a great stay at this hotel July 16th and 17th. The location of this property was super easy to get to right on Hwy. 101. The rooms were the biggest of the hotels we stayed in our our recent trip. When we asked the front desk staff for a recommendation for a nice restaurant the 2 young men... More

We stayed (family of four and a dog) stayed here for one night on our way to Redwood National Park. The hotel is filled with a strong, unpleasant and musty odor right from the lobby. The room was same; it felt very unhealthy. I guess, the hotel staff never did any deep cleaning - with pets and everything it accumulated.... More

We enjoyed a really nice stay - clean rooms, great friendly staff. The room was plenty big and enjoyed the two sinks to help out with getting ready in the morning. Only disappointment was paying for breakfast.

Donna M, Thank you for your nice review. I'm glad you had a really nice stay. Yes we do have a free for breakfast, it does help us provide a hot buffet with extra items that you would not get with a continental breakfast. We hope to see you again soon. More

I was really tired and did not notice much, but there was nothing negative about the place. I remember being comfortable and the wifi working. We were doing research on some things. Anyway, my head was on surfing. The staff was nice.

We spent five days at this hotel while going to various destinations in the Redwood parks. I had seen some negative reviews and was a bit leery about the place. But the experience I had was overwhelmingly positive. The checkin was smooth and friendly. The room was decent sized and very comfortable and clean. The beds were decent and quite... More

Room was clean and spacious. Staff was helpful. No complaints there. We had a tile floor which was kind of odd in a hotel. It is in a rundown area of town but we didn't feel unsafe. The gym was in great shape and well equipped for a small gym. Hotel needs guest laundry room. That would have been very... More

Very nice hotel with all rooms on the interior of the hotel. Room was spacious and clean. Got a good night's rest, very quiet. Had a great breakfast buffet for around $11.00, well worth the price. Would definitely stay here again.

Very nice, clean, comfortable room in an otherwise unremarkable town. We were in Eureka for two nights to visit some of the redwood parks north of town. In hindsight I would have much preferred to stay in Arcata as it is much cuter. The Red Lion, however was the bright spot of our visit. Rooms were very comfortable, (wanted to... More
