Walking distance to restaurants and gas station. Hotel is off route 101. Friendly staff and check in was fast. Room was little dark but good size. We had king size bed. The bed was too soft for me and when my husband moved the whole bed shakes. Free wifi but no breakfast.

Typical chain hotel, the check in was easy and friendly. We were informed that our rate wasn't that great so they gave us free breakfast. If it wasn't for that we would not have eaten the breakfast due to price. The waitress was not overly friendly. The rooms were clean and the bed comfortable.

We found this nicely priced hotel right where we wanted to be in Eureka near old town. I'm so glad we gave it a chance. I have to say that the bed & pillows were the most comfortable I've slept on. I'm going to investigate. The room was clean, quiet and nicely arranged. The staff were friendly and helpful. They... More

We stayed for one night in Eureka. The town itself is not that interesting (actually feels a bit grim), but it was on the way between the redwoods and San Francisco. The hotel location is nothing special, but the hotel is clean and spacious. The highlight was the staff - our room had been booked on the wrong day by... More

We stayed here for a single night after having last been here four years ago. The interior of the hotel has been redone, and once inside the rooms, you would think you were in a Marriott -- beds had very soft toppers, nice modern furniture, modern art prints on walls. We brought a pet, and dreaded the usual being placed... More

We experienced car trouble and were stranded in Eureka for 11 days. Thank goodness we were staying at the Red Lion Hotel.

Friendly staff, recently upgraded furnishings, high quality toiletries, room had Tazo teas (not simply Lipton). Very well cleaned rooms and bath at a very good price.
