Best Western Plus Humboldt Bay Inn
Ranked #1 of 21 Hotels in Eureka
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I stay here for business as do a large proportion of the guests. The hotel is sandwiched between both lanes of 101 in Eureka where 101 is actually a city street. While an older hotel, the rooms are comfortable, very clean, and have fridges, microwaves, and new flat screens with internet thoughout the property. The complimentary breakfast has lots of choices, not just the usual 'continental breakfast' stuff. They even have a complimentary limo to downtown for dinner nightly which is preferable to parking your car especially if you plan on drinking. The only gripe is that because of the hotel's location, the street noise can be an issue in some rooms at some times of the year. Eureka is full of older, beat-up motels; this place is a great value in a decent location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street for the quietest experience.

We were a bit hesitant booking here given some of the reviews but were pleasantly surprised. Spacious, clean comfortable room. Staff very pleasant. You can walk to the historic downtown for dinner. There is a limo service which is a great idea but we didn't use it. We went for a run when we arrived and then came back and used the gym....small but great to have. Pool small but would be good for kids. The breakfast was great, so clean and well stocked and very pleasant staff......even had egg and sausage croissants which my husband tells me was delicious. We are travelling using a different motel each night more or less and this was the best so far.

If you haven't heard of the Emerald Suite at the Humboldt Bay Inn, you should check it out! No detail has been left out...from the fireplace, surround sound, huge hot tub in the room, triple glass shower, cozy bed, his and her robes, to the small details that may go unnoticed like the heart shaped iron curtain rods and the iced champagne waiting for you when you arrive, making this a must stay for any couple! Oh and the added bonus, free limousine service to and from anywhere in Eureka! Celine our driver was very friendly as was all the staff at the hotel. The fitness center is well maintained with easy access and great equipment. The breakfast has many quick options making it convenient. Since the hotel is next door to a restaurant if you desire a full breakfast you don't have far to go. The pool area is very nice for relaxing with lots of plants and a pool table for entertainment. Definitely a relaxing get away with all the amenities, inviting a return visit!

Eureka is always a challenge to find a decent hotel or B & B. I’ve been traveling there for years and never really found the right place to go back to. I tried this Best Western instead of the other one because I thought it was closer to the old down town, but it was too much of a walk on a cold March evening. Staff was cheerful when I checked in, and my room was adjacent to the lobby and pool area. They are old, the old style of motel rooms, but had been re-decorated. Carpets could do with a clean, but I always have another pair of socks to wear. Bathrooms were re-done but just old style very small. No restaurant on site, figure on driving somewhere for dinner. It was basic, and that’s really all you can ask for in such an old facility, but they do their best.

Room Tip: Get the single storey block, the floors might be thin in this old building

Rooms were average, pool area was very comfotable for lounging and breakfast was satisfying. Staff was very gracious, but topper was limo service to take you anywhere in town during the evening and return you back to the hotel safely, even after one too many drinks! Convenient too Old Town even if at edge of business district.

Enjoyed this Best Western near Old Town Eureka. Room was super clean and updated. Staff was friendly, breakfast was good. The free limo service M - F was a nice touch, though we did not take advantage of it. One of my pet peeves in these types of hotel/motel is internet speed and this one was tops. No problems at all. We will be back.

Room Tip: The location between the southbound and northbound lanes of the through town highway might be a bit...

I visited Eureka for 6 days and stayed at Humbolt Bay Inn. Every staff member I encountered was cheerful, professional and always helpful. The groundskeeper was clearly very dedicated - keeping everything clean and well maintained. Housekeeping service was great. My room was tended to every day, and always smelled fresh. The front desk staff were always helpful and accomodating. And of course Selena the limo driver was perfect! She remembered all our names several days later and was very personable. Although the weather was chilly we still used the pool since it was kept at a a toasty 80 degrees, and the jacuzzi was great too. Oh, and not to mention the multiple heat lamps that kept the patio area cozy and comfortable on those very cold nights. And I can't forget the complimetary "continental" breakfast which I thought was very generous - something for everyone and a good variety - everything from cold cereal, pastries and yogurt, to hot waffles, breakfast sandwhiches and fresh fruit. To me, the most important aspects of a good hotel are cleanliness and warm, accomodating hospitality. This little gem fit the bill! If I ever return to Eureka I will DEFINITELY stay here again.
