“Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

We found the staff at the Redwood very pleasant and efficient.
The room was large and well appointed.
The bed was really comfortable and loved all the pillows!
Was pleased to find an up to date and quiet wall heater system with thermostat setting!
Many nice eco touches.
We will stay there again.

We loved the location of this hotel. It was about 20 minutes from Humboldt Redwoods State Park and less than 2 miles from a variety of restaurants as we discovered. Our room was clean and quiet and included a refrigerator and microwave. We probably would stay there again.

We gave service 2 stars because the registration desk staff was tepid about providing service. We witnessed another guest report a blown-out light bulb and the registration desk attendant seemed confused and unconcerned - no sense of urgency at all - about how to provide immediate assistance. We asked another desk attendant for restaurant recommendations and the best he could do was refer is to the nearby brewpub*. We expected, "what kind of food do you feel like eating?" or, "how much do you want to spend?" Our question caught him completely off guard.

For the record, we are foodies. Also for the record, we didn't expect a Michelin 3-star rating for the complimentary continental breakfast. We did expect fresh milk or half-and-half instead of powdered creamer. The sausages and cereal looked unappetizing. We welcomed the small red apples, which were the only fresh food offered, and ate breakfast elsewhere. The Redwood missed an opportunity to match the quality of its rooms to its amenities.

*The brewpub the attendant referred us to, The Eel River Brewing Company, is about 2 minutes away on foot and truly is a gem. Go hungry; it isn't light fare but it sure is tasty.

Spent the night last night and what a great place. We drove from the Bay Area to take a family member home in Eureka and decided to spend the night in Fortuna. Have stayed at the RV park down the street and we liked the area. The Redwoods couldn't have been nicer. Garrett checked us in and was very polite. The Eel River Brewing Co is just two doors and down and has great beer and onion rings. Crowded but good. Will definitely stay again.

So glad you made it the extra half block down the street to stay with us at The Redwood. Glad you enjoy the area, we are very fortunate to be at the Eel River and have all the facilities around us. Thanks for mentioning Garrett, we are very fortunate to have him with us! Safe travels.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone passing through. The lobby of the hotel is very rustic, and quite clean. I was presented by a young man, I can't remember his name, but he had some tattoos. He was very polite, and respectful. The check in was fast and easy. When I went up to my room it was spotless and was quite comfortable. I will stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to tell your fellow travelers about The Redwood. As many read these reviews and the owners comments, you all know we are working very hard to ensure quality service. The polite, respectful gentleman at the front desk, CJ, has been very focused on taking his service to the next level. He and I are very happy you recognized his service. We look forward to you at the hotel again. Safe travels.

After a long drive up the coast we stopped here for our one night stay. Price was inexpensive so did not know what to expect. Wow when we walked into our 2 queen bed room! Super spacious room, table and chairs up front, plenty of walking space between tv dresser and beds. Granite countertop sink, modern bath and shower with large size pump bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Clean, clean everywhere. Breakfast area for tomorrow morning looked very nice in the lobby area so we will try that in the morning. Overall, very glad we stopped here. Will keep in mind for a return visit to the area.

I just wanna say that I have stayed in some really nice hotels/motels, and this is one of the best. Very quiet, friendly helpful staff, very clean, good coffee (no half & half only complaint), very comfortable beds, great shower with shampoo that smells pure and healthy rather than perfumy, and free breakfast!! will definitely recommend to anyone coming to the area.

Room Tip: great price and safer location than Eureka motels

Green Features: they have great shower pump containers and cotton towels

we enjoyed our stay, the room was very nice, the beds were very comfortable, breakfast was good. we were trying it out before our 4 day stay in July. The check-in clerk at the time we checked in (late afternoon) was rude, obnoxious and a jerk! Also why did we have to pay an extra fee even tho it was refunded? just because we used Expedia, makes no sense. We had called ahead of time to make reservations for the Autorama there in July and were told we could bring our well-traveled 6lb dog, for a one-time charge of $10, this guy says if we bring her then we have to pay a $20 A DAY charge on top of the already inflated charges for then, which is ridiculous, if that is true we are going to cancel those reservations.

Thank you for taking the time to comment and also speak with us directly. We do indeed place an incidental hold for all our guests at The Redwood. It is indeed a hold and not a charge. It is released upon check out. We do look forward to your return visit in July for the car show... with your pet! Safe travels.
