“Best rate in the area”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

On our way to San Francisco we needed a place to eat, sleep and shower. This motel does that all, and for the best rate in town.

Rooms are good sized, clean and with good beds. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast in the morning was really good: there were the usual things plus 4 hot items (omelettes with cheese and mushrooms, biscuits with gravy, mini-burgerpatties and cinnamon rolls).

Would surely recommend!

Note: next to the hotel is a bar/restaurant that serves awesome grilled burgers!

Clean room, good bed, very good breakfast. Centrally located for my activities.
BAD - someone had spilled something sticky on a wall behind the desk and I had to kill LOTS of ants before using the WI-Fi.
Nice indoor pool.
You want too lengthy a review.

This is a very clean hotel and perfect location, right next to the Eel River Brewery (make sure you use the key card for a 10% discount). The Riverwalk is super close, the water was really low but still a nice view if you walk south.

This will be my place to stay when ever I make it down that way.

So glad you were able to enjoy the Riverwalk, it is a beautiful area and we are very fortunate to be at this location. The river is high during March hope you are able to make down during that time. Safe travels.

After a long day of travelling down the Oregon Coast it was a pleasant surprise to find spacious and relaxing accommodations. I understand that the property was a Holiday Inn Express prior, but I saw no signs of the chain hotel look and feel. I loved the fact that the lobby and even rooms have a local flavor in its décor. I chose this hotel for a couple of reasons, (one) because they have dog friendly rooms and (two) because of its location (easy access to continue our coastal route). Bonus is the friendly staff, very spacious room, and the green belt area for our small pug to run. They provide doggie bags and seem to keep the area clean of doggie business. Although right off the highway, the hotel was very quiet. Even the Eel River Brewing Company next door didn’t seem to add any additional noise. I am a runner and loved being able to go for a run in the morning along the river. It was a little chilly but refreshing.

The room itself had all the standard amenities, but what was different was some of the green products they use, such as the bathroom shampoo and conditioner. I loved the clean TV remote as well – general remotes are always nasty to touch. The room was very clean and the double beds were both comfortable with quality linens. I loved the extra mirror at the sink, perfect for a close shave. The bathroom itself is small, but was fine. The shower – tub combo with extended curtain rod made up for the tight quarters. The room also had a small fridge and microwave and complimentary coffee set up, although we did not use them. The Wi-Fi was complimentary and was easy to connect to. I was able to catch up on emails and research our next leg of our trip along the coast at the spacious desk area provided.

We went down for breakfast after my morning run and enjoyed a great selection of items. The scones were the best. I loved the fresh melon, and they were gracious enough to make me a vegetarian frittata upon request.

The pool and Jacuzzi are indoors near the lobby and seemed well maintained, but we did not use the facilities. Loved the wall murals. Garrett at the front desk recommended visiting the quaint and historic town of Ferndale about 5 miles away. It was definitely worth the visit. We would definitely recommend, and stay here again. Next time we will definitely spend more time at the hotel and explore more of beautiful area.

Thanks for your thoughtful details about The Redwood. We have just added the shower dispensers in the bathrooms and are very excited about the quality of the products as well as less waste in the landfills (no more tiny bottles to throw away). The clean remotes are being rolled out to all the rooms and another benefit... they are easy to use, not so many buttons! Had a great time sitting with you at breakfast, always enjoy hearing about guests' travels and experiences. Safe travels and hurry back.

Title says it all. Decent. Not bad overall. Clean, quiet. Price was a little high but when your way up north it's always a gamble. Rather pay a little more and have a decent stay than pay less and have a bad night's stay somewhere. The Harleys and the hippies seem to pick other places.

I will admit that we were spoiled by our Holiday Inn Express breakfasts and found your breakfast to be less than satisfying because the food was not hot and the coffee sub-standard.

Otherwise, we enjoyed our visit and were pleased with the ambiance. We will return if we are in your area, but may not give your breakfast a second chance.

We are very happy you enjoyed the ambience of the hotel. As The Redwood we are striving to create a sense of place and are very excited with the changes we have been making. This means we have left the Holiday Inn Express frozen, prepared items for breakfast in favor of cooking frittatas from scratch. A door to the equipment was being repaired and has been ordered to ensure that all items stay hot during breakfast. We look forward to your return to see our continued improvements.
