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

Poppet8, you should have stayed longer with us! We wish you could have. Thank you for the recommendation on different bike options. That was a total bummer you could not use them. We hope you still enjoyed the coast. Thank you for choosing to stay with us, we hope you can come back again soon. More

We were staying at a different hotel in Eureka, but after only being there for a few hours, we decided to leave the next day. Saw the reviews here and it's closer proximity to where our son and his family had just moved to, we stopped in and asked to look at one of their rooms. The front desk person... More

Even though it was out of town it was a nice middle point. It is newer and clean. The gym was quite tiny-kids called it the closet. The pool was fun to hang out at the end of the day. Wished it was open a little later since you try to catch the outside sunsets at the beaches. The morning... More

We checked into the Holiday Inn Express with great hopes. It looked to be convenient for our visit, and we paid extra for an upgraded room.

We had a good stay here while we were voting Redwoods NP. The rooms were normal, the bathroom average, the breakfast consistent with the average Holiday Inn Express. The staff was friendly. The decor was almost southwestern, and the hotel had a large staircase going up the center, which was convenient. Overall this was a good hotel and I would... More

The room was fine and clean. These Holiday inn Express hotels are good enough for business or family travel, having good wifi, range of TV channels and a free breakfast. Good coffee.
