This was a nice little hotel for a reasonable price. Very clean rooms with a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker (with organic coffee). We arrived late in the evening, but the owner still took the time to go over a local map with us!

As others have noted there's not much in Rio Dell - EXCEPT this hotel. This was the best hotel of our 2 week road trip. The management was excellent, the beds good, the free WiFi was fast and easy and the reception always warm when we requested assistance (like more coffee, etc.). We were given tips on places to eat,... More

Rio Dell, a tiny town. The Gables Motel, a small motel. What's the draw? DAVE THOMPSON. The manager, a lovely, gentle giant of a man, who polices his units fiercely and lovingly. We were amazed at the cleanliness, charmed by the information Dave imparted. No a/c, but usually, this isn't a problem. We had a great shower, slept between clean... More

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
