This motel has some issues. The lights in the room are dim, the bathtub didn't drain while showering, no hair dryer, though I didn't ask at the front desk. No coffee other than decaf is provided. But, the bed was fine, the water pressure was good, there was plenty of hot water and the motel is well maintained in general.... More

Reasonable pricing considering it is in Garberville and there is a lack of motels in general.Conveniently located right downtown also. walked to everywhere in town as there was no need to drive from their location

Nice hotel with comfortable beds and a clean room. It had JUST been cleaned when we pulled in, so it smelled heavily of cleaner, but after a few minutes with door and windows open the smell was gone. Plenty of hot water and good pressure, even got steaming hot water from the sink with someone in the shower. Good coffee... More

What a DUMP! We will NEVER return to the garbageville motel or the town of garbageville for that matter. The room was at a premium price due to the long weekend and wow, it was bad. It was not clean, it stunk like paint over really old cigarette smoke and it looked like someone picked their nose and wiped it... More

No frills motel in a small town. There are some other choices in town, but the value here was ok. Room was ok, clean. Refrigerator and microwave. Bed was ok. Nothing to write home about. I'd double check the other hotels in town before deciding on this one.

Arrived by car after a day sightseeing on the Californian coast. Quick check in. Clean, tidy room with new tv. Quiet and cheap with plenty of parking. Free Wifi and an easy walk to choice of dining. No breakfast served but close the the local store.

Judging from reviews we were concerned so we drove thru town after a long day ....we had called Motel Garberville and then went in. The owner was nice, helpful, gave us wifi code. The room while very old school, was clean and neat with an HD TV (a contradiction to the décor and feel of the place:). A binder was... More

Old motel; needs complete remodel/update. Positive: everything worked in the room. Negative: 75$, should be closer to 40-50$. Garberville is very small. Two other motels with similar style/price in town, and two others that are too expensive for me (Benbow and Best Western). Just needed a place to sleep while visiting the Avenue of the Giants. The motel is just... More
