We were looking for somewhere different to spend Thanksgiving week while our daughter was off school...this is something we've done for the past few years. We chose this BW mostly for the location. You can walk to the historic downtown and we did just that...we spent a couple of days wandering through the quaint shops and restaurants (and there are a lot of restaurants in Eureka!). We also appreciated the fact that there was a Starbucks just up the road but there are a couple of excellent family owned coffee shops in the old town district too.
Our room was clean and the beds comfortable however, the walls were quite thin and we could hear what our neighbors were doing and saying which was a little disturbing at times. Staying on the second floor might have helped to reduce the 'noise'. The complimentary breakfast was really not worth bothering with except to pick up some yogurt and fruit. The coffee was pretty awful although my daughter enjoyed the tea and hot chocolate. The dining room attendant was also a different sort of character...she kept trying to 'talk-up' the male guests which made me and few other guests a little uncomfortable. She probably thought she was being friendly (or something) but she was really just being obnoxious. I let the front desk person know before we checked out to which I got some eye rolling and the comment: "I'll talk to her again...". I guess I wasn't the only person who said something.
Eureka is a very different little town. Not your typical coastal town. More like a lumber town...lumber mills everywhere...but it is historic and visiting some of the small towns around Eureka was fun (like Ferndale with it's Victorian homes). Of course, you can't beat the redwoods either for great scenery.
