Eureka, California
Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

We stayed overnight on our way to Eureka to visit family. The grounds of the hotel were very nice. The parking was limited due to spots being taken up by construction containers. They have a beautiful garden area.

Thank you 885jeannetteb for staying with us on your way to Eureka. The construction containers are actually the new carpet and furniture for our rooms. We are in the process of replacing , and updating our rooms, so be sure to stop by again next time you are through Santa Rosa.

Good pet policies, pleasant room. Clean and quiet. No breakfast. We needed a place that would accommodate a dog. We wanted to stay in San Rafael, but this Best Western was the closest that would accept pets. When we asked about breakfast, the clerk told us pleasantly that the property has a restaurant, but that breakfast is not included. We...

No complimentary breakfast which is a Best Western tradition and the for-pay breakfast was less than satisfactory, e.g., an english muffin so over-heated it could not be cut with a knife. Not to mention the group of very loud, opinionated men who acted as though they were the only ones in the small cafe building. The front parking lot was...

Thank you Kristen for letting us know about your stay. First I am sorry about your English muffin, I would have sent it back. And no we do charge for breakfast, not all Best Western have a complimentary breakfast. Just to let you know, you actually pay for that free breakfast in the rate. And yes the garbage trucks and...

Very nice accomodations for a one night stay. Conveniently located to a nearby Costco where we prefer to fuel. Also very easy on and off the nearby freeway system. Wi-Fi worked as advertised and the breakfast room was clean and served up a very nice meal.

This hotel is very well situated for visiting Santa Rosa. It is a lovely hotel overall except for the smokey smelling room. If we get this type of room in the future we will move to another hotel because the odor was so intense.

This was an average hotel room. Nothing seemed to stand out about it, nothing was wrong with it. It was "just a place for the night," The hotel needed to be a "PLUS" hotel for it to have impressed me. I would have been willing to pay for the extra amount to get an "above average" experience.

Your basic Best Western. This one is set back from the busy road so you don't get too much noise, which I like. There is a small place to eat onsite. The location is quite close to a large shopping mall and highway 101. My room was comfortable and clean. I found the front desk staff to be quite nice...

Wife and I traveled to SR for a Brew fest which was within a mile of the property. We were delighted with the recent top notch renovation of the property. Our room (#117) was very quiet and on a single level-no disturbances at all. Breakfast was available at the in house restaurant. Food was very good and reasonably priced. So,...
