We stayed in this motel on a Sunday night to visit with some friends in Eureka. I booked this motel because it seemed to be the best fit for us..
First impressions -- it seemed to be a fairly nice motel. Parking was a bit tight, and getting into and out of it was a bit problematic due to turns directly onto a multi-lane one-way highway. The property seemed to be in good condition.
I was hoping that check-in wasn't an indication of the experience that we were going to have, especially since the front desk clerk was more interested in getting the football game on the TV than on actually checking anyone into the hotel.
The room, although touted as being "large", wasn't altogether that big. It seemed rather cramped with a king bed, the dresser, a table, and two small chairs. The bathroom needed some refreshing but was in pretty good shape.
The bed wasn't that comfortable, compared to other Best Westerns that I've stayed at in the past, but we did sleep reasonably well. As other reviewers have stated, there is a fairly significant amount of road noise in the mornings, as the hotel is directly on the highway. It didn't seem to penetrate the rooms that much, though.
Breakfast... what an experience. I didn't get to partake of the food, so I can't talk to quality, but the area was TINY. There were perhaps 8 tables available for patrons to sit, and they were packed with people hovering around and waiting. However, I didn't see the "hot breakfast" as advertised -- it was primarily a continental breakfast (pastries, cereal, fruit), with the addition of a waffle station. I didn't see eggs or any sort of meat available.
Check-out was to be expected... quick and easy...
