“Quaint & Relaxing Getaway in the Redwoods”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

Quaint, quiet and relaxing hotel in center of the Occidental. Only 50 steps to excellent breakfast place, a local pub or wine tasting enoteca. Sparkling pool, clean rooms and relaxed atmosphere created by attentive staff. Highly recommend this place for visitors coming to "down shift", take in the Bohemian atmosphere of the town or go Zip-Lining the nearby Canopy Tours.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the building closer to the pool, it's further away from the road.

We have been staying here for years. Great spot, well run. The prices really shot up this year, but they did spruce up the rooms a bit. Brian is super helpful. Try to get an upstairs room aas they are quieter. Wireless, coffee in room, great pool.

Clean, comfortable rooms with small refrigerator, microwave and king bed. For the price, you can't beat it. Family owned and you can see it in the care that is taken with the property. I'll be back. They accept pets too.

The Occidental Hotel is clean and best bet for the price. But be clear--it is a motel not a hotel.

This is an older hotel in a charming little town. The folks working there were very nice and helpful. The shower worked great, the bed was a bit hard and the walls are pretty thin. The folks in the next room were loud talkers, but the AC unit helped drown out their yapping and they retired early.

Room Tip: 2nd floor, you don't have to listen to the folks above you walking about.

I've just returned from this motel and, yes, it is older but upgraded The cons are that the walls are thin and you can hear the people walking upstairs but other than that it is value for dollar The room was clean and spacious and the pool while not heated was just fine. Howards acrosss the street has an amazing breakfast and the Wildflower bakery down the road is not to be missed. The front desk is not continually attended but are available as you need them. You might neeed to leave a message for a reservation but they get back to you immediately. The rates for other nearby B&B's and motel were double to what I paid here. You should bring your Skype app device because cell phones do not work well here. You are in a valley on the edge of the Redwoods. Internet connectivity was no problem. I will stay here again!

Very accommodating. They quickly cleaned our room when asked (very important with two kids on somewhat different nap schedules.) Excellent value. Clean. Had mini fridge and microwave. Fairly spacious given that we had a pack and play (square) to fit in besides a toddler and the things that he likes to leave around. I would return.

P.S. right across the street from howard's that serves delicious breakfasts (crabs benedict, breakfasr quesadilla, blueberry cornmeal pancakes and strawberry waffles.)
