The new owners did a nice job refurbishing the Holiday Inn Express in Fortuna. The moment you check-in, you can tell how badly the owners and staff want this project to be a success.
My wife and I spent three nights in August at The Redwood and had a delightful stay. Our room was large and very clean and was recently refurbished. The linens were new and the bathroom recently refurbished. The pool and Jacuzzi are indoors and well maintained with a huge mural of the redwood forest on the wall. Our room and the entire complex seemed very quiet as it is located far enough from the highway to eliminate any noise and shares the area with a few chain hotels, restaurant and gas station. I do not understand the prior review about noise, unless the noise came from other guests.
The staff were very accommodating during our stay and seemed eager to answer our many questions about the area. Their recommendation for pizza was especially rewarding.
The Redwood is located in the town closest to Humboldt Redwoods that has the usual supermarkets and stores that are not present in the small communities within the park. It is about a fifteen minute drive to the first large groves and less to smaller groves. We have stayed in a cabin in the park on a prior trip and both alternatives for accommodations have their good points. If one were planning a one week visit, I would split it between the cabin and The Redwood in Fortuna.
