Other than the guy at the office not talking, it was a great place to stay. Nice thick comfortable bed, really clean inside and out. Really nice, thick, and smooth towels too. Comfy and cozy. I would go here again.

This is a true older property gem. I prefer older properties...but the owner here goes out of his way for the little extras to make you feel at home. They invested in high quality towels and give you plenty of all types in the room. They place 2 chocolate kisses on the bed each day. The rooms are clean and... More

After a problem with our reservation in Garberville, we frantically started calling hotels for a room and were very fortunate to find one at Humboldt Gables Motel. This is a super clean and comfortable motel. We had a large room with 2 double beds and one queen which was perfect for our family. We all slept well and the shower... More

After cancelling my room in Crescent City, I found my self without accomodations for the night. I recall passing by this quaint motel on my way North. I quickly phoned them and was able to book a room. When we arrived, we were greeted by a very friendly man you promptly checked us into our room. He was able to... More

Small, quiet Motel with a beautiful view. Clean as can be. Plenty of furniture room for storage, Clean bathrooms with wonderful towels. Friendly manager , We stayed 4 days. If you want to pay $400.00 for a room go elsewhere. We had everything we needed right here and can roll our own bags around. Well kept. We were very busy... More

Its cheaper then Eureka or Ferndale. Nothing special. Clean. Good location. Older doesn't mean dirty. Too many mistake older for dirty, don't do this. If you're passing thru it's a comfortable stay reasonably priced.

Older motel in a nice setting. The room was clean and the motel has been kept up. My parents are elderly and had a hard time getting around in the room because there was so much furniture in it. There is also nowhere to go eat after 6:00PM that is within a mile. It is a small motel (12 units... More

We stayed here and thought it was great. Very clean and owner was friendly & helpful. Would recommend. We were passing through and ended up staying 2 nights. We used the area as a base to see red woods. The town is very small so there is a shortage of restaurants.

Clean and quiet. Conveniently located and easily accessible. My husband and I rode our motorcycles. While checking in, we were asked 1 or 2 bikes. The man at the counter says here's your towels and hands us several towels to clean out bikes. How awesome is that?!! Gave us a room toward the corner of the lot so we had... More

This was my second time staying at this establishment. The price is definitely high for what amenities are offered. However this is the only place in RIO DEL. The staff is friendly and the area is stunning.
