This inn is historic as is the town. Walking in, one immediately feels the years of the past envelope you. The woodwork is polished and the decor feeds the imagination. The room we were in was small but comfortable. The staff was friendly and considerate of our needs. Breakfast wasn't a huge spread, but the breads and fruit were fresh... More

We were here for only one night as we traveled up the Pacific Coast Highway and detoured inland for the redwood forests. We love places with character and this one did not disappoint. There was a very good Mexican restaurant where we had dinner on site and an Irish Pub we did not visit. We made made a side trip... More

Crisp clean linens, a footed tub large windows (no a/c). Period furnishings in the lobby and public areas. Quiet and relaxing. We had a tasty, reasonably priced dinner at the... More

Back in my college days.....over three decades ago... I delivered electrical supplies to this mill town. A lot has changed since then but not the Scotia Inn. While the property has dated fixtures, bedding, towels, furnishings, etc. the old hotel is still grand and worth a visit. If you are a fan of old growth redwood you will see some... More

This is a town I used to visit with my parents when the town and mill were in their heyday in the 1960's. First time we have ever stayed at the Inn. Built in the 1920's and not much has changed with the building since it was a company town for the Pacific Lumber Company. It is sad to see... More

Scotia for you people that don't know is one of the last company towns in America! Owned originally by lumber barons. In earlier years people who lived here worked in the mill processing lumber. All homes were owned by the company. There was a movie theatre, grocery store, a school and much more, all in one company owned town. Our... More

I don't like giving poor reviews....But..... The good news is the staff here are charming and helpful. Now for the bad ...our room 217 was large spacious, nicely appointed with antique furniture --as is the rest of the hotel --- but the towels were grubby with dirt marks on them from where some one had dried dirty hands. The blinds... More

We were looking for somewhere close to the Redwoods and this was the best place we found. Price was $100 for a petite queen room and a short 15 minute drive to the redwoods. They have large, spacious bathroom and I love how they maintained the originality of this old hotel. It definitely has a spooky vibe to it if... More

Sure the Scotia might not have all the little niceties that you'll find in most modern cookie cutter motels. But it more than makes up for it with an incredibly warm and comfortable ambiance. History fairly oozes out of the beautiful woodwork and tapestries in the lobby. I'll take the Scotia Inn over any new plastic chain motel.
