It appears this hotel originally a different brand, but this hotel meets HIE standards. A delightfully quite location as well as central for going to redwoods and coastal locations north and south. Breakfast area is too small for the number of guests. No restaurants in immediate area, but many choices in 3-4 nearby towns. Highly recommend for this area, but... More

This hotel was in a much better location than the ones we have stayed a previously in the area. Good service room was nice a little noisy above us but overall had a great stay. Right outside of Trinidad and minutes from the beach it was definitely worth the extra money.

Thank you to trip advisor ratings for helping us select this hotel as a part of our trip down the oregon and california coasts.

The hotel is very nice. Great friendly staff. There was a loud machinery noise. Maybe from the airport. I may be overly sensitive. Should have asked to move. Oh well. Be wary of back of hotel. Breakfast was basic.

Quiet area, breakfast starts as early 430am, great for catching early flights or heading to work,continental style but a decent variety. Access to 101 highway is close. Hiking, biking trail nearby.

Visiting Redwoods National Park, and there is no lodging inside the park. There are a handful of motels that are closer, but they looked pretty dingy. So, we stayed here and drove 30 minutes to the park entrance/visitor center. Its a fairly new hotel, and the King suite was spacious, with a small couch/seating area. The free breakfast was very...

Service was great and friendly, room was fabulous! We were upgraded to a suite and I highly recommend it. Only down spot was the bike package. The bikes were the really big Electra models which are definitely not for anyone under 5'4". So we got our money back, but it's a nice idea if you can handle them. Would love... More
