“Pillows! Just open the pillow case up and shake out & you will have comfy pillows”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Had to write this ASAP. Many reviews noted the small hard pillows on the bed. Just open up the "rolled" up pillow case and shake out. You will have a regular size pillow that's very comfy. The cleaning staff rolls them up to make them look pretty. We stay at this chain all over the country and 99% of the time the stay is just fine. This property is fine. Carpets in room had stains, probably from the guests shoes, but room seemed clean. Smelled clean and bathroom clean as well. Overall my husband and I were very satisfied and would stay again.

Stayed here on vacation for just one night & the room was very nice & comfortable. The hotel is kind of secluded but close just a short drive to restaurants and gas stations. Breakfast was very nice but required a pass to get in even though it was included. Overall a great stay for the price.

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

Room was large, clean, with very comfortable bed, and the price was reasonable. Continental breakfast had numerous choices! Access to Highway 101 is very convenient, but noise is not an issue. Would certainly stay there again!

Have stayed here several times over the years when I'm in the area - I can always depend on this hotel. They are centrally located - close by Highway 101, but far enough away to not be disturbed by road noise. Large room - and the bonus is that they are pet friendly!! This was our first road trip with our dog and it worked out perfect. They have a breakfast - not the greatest, but typical of DIY breakfasts in hotels such as this (and no extra charge). Good value for the money .... and they have excellent customer service as well (Leah is the GREATEST - went the "extra mile" to help me resolve a scheduling problem - thanks). .. I would stay here again when in the area.

We had a nice clean room for the price. The room was large with a microwave, small refrigerator, and coffee maker. We had a king bed and stayed 3 nights. The free breakfast was better than most with hard boiled eggs, sausage, ham, yogurt, make your own waffles, and more.
That said, my sister had a room in the other building. There was no microwave or refrigerator. It was clean but wallpaper was peeling. They said someone had bought them out and maybe they were remodeling.
Overall, I was quite pleased.

Room Tip: Ask for room with fridge and micro.

Good location and price. No road noise as it sets back from the highway. Little room noise. Breakfast was typical continental. Beds were very comfortable. Room was dated but clean. Desk help friendly.

This motel is not new. In fact we stayed in the *RV park* (not "trailer" park!) next door as long as 12 years ago, and the motel was well established then.

It has been kept up pretty well. We could see a bit of wear and tear here and there, but for the price we paid, we did not expect first class luxury.

It was only about $75 ... in summer!

Note that it is completely pet friendly. You have to declare your pet, but there are no "separate" rooms for pets as they are welcome in all rooms. So if you have allergies, plan accordingly.

We found the funny little pillows to be okay, but kind of hard. Wi-fi was good, and of course free. Our room faced the no-longer-in-use tennis court and pool area and was very quiet after it got dark. Prior to that, we could hear some kids but it was no big deal.

The motel is close to the freeway and the west side looks out onto lush cow pastures. There are a couple of very quiet roads by the pastures which make for a nice place to walk or bike, with little traffic.

Breakfast was a bit odd. Instead of the usual 'carb' offerings, we got ham and sausage! My husband always goes down and brings breakfast to the room, so it is possible he missed the waffles or hashbrowns (or eggs) since he said it was kind of cramped and busy . . . it was tasty, just rather 'different'. They did have yogurt, which I always appreciate at motels.

All in all, this is a good motel for an inexpensive stay in a location convenient to Eureka, the college and the redwoods.

Oh, there is a good Mexican restaurant right next door :-)

Room Tip: Two stories, no elevators
