We had a 2 bedroom cottage. Clean, plenty of room for our family of 4. One bathroom, basic kitchen. Met all our needs. Can get a little cold in the bedrooms as the only heating is in the living room, so we kept the doors to the bedrooms open most of the nights. We stayed in March, so there wasnt much activity anywhere in the area. It looks like there are lots of activities in the summer time. Not a bad place to stay if you want to get away in the redwoods. There really are no services for about 10 miles, but it was nice and quiet!

Room Tip: They have several different cabins, so read the room descriptions carefully on their website.

We totally lucked into this modest bonanza of a motel right outside the Humboldt Redwoods State Park in Southern Humboldt County. The accomodations were all bungaloes stocked with amenities galore and backed by a stand of humongous old-growth Coastal Redwoods. The extraordinarily complete kitchen blew our minds: silverware for 10, the full range of pots, pans, plates, and even a crockpot & freshly ground coffee from the owners' private stash. The owners were lovely folks & run a nice gift shop by the roadside and make sure you leave with a piece of souvenir memorabilia. Definitely a must-stay next time we're through.

We only had one night to stay and loved it. Had a full kitchen, large bedroom and living room. Pet friendly, we had the two "boys". The outside area was pure redwoods surrounding us. Even Bigfoot claw marks on the redwood tree behind the cabin. Will stay again when we are back to the Avenue of Giants. And the 15 minute drive to Scotia is nothing to go for groceries. Where else can you drive thru redwoods to go shopping?

Room Tip: Cabin number four was full amenities.

Pros: very close to Humboldt Redwood State Park, dog friendly, lower priced relative to surrounding hotels
Cons: a little lower quality, a bit of a drive (15 mins) to get to grocery/food/gas

Overall we were pleased with our stay and would stay again if we were back. It was very accommodating of our dog and we enjoyed the 5 minute drive into the park.

We were inadvertently mis-directed to this resort by Google while trying to find the hotel where we had reservations. We ended up banging on their door around 9:30 that night and found that we weren't the first to be misguided 40 miles from our destination. The owner explained that there had been several people looking for the same hotel we were looking for but was kind enough to let us in after hours and since he didn't expect to rent out any more rooms that night he gave us a discount. The cabin was humble but comfortable and clean. We had a peaceful night and a quiet morning with plenty of available exploring. The next morning we had breakfast at the local cafe and toured the Eternal Treehouse. The locals were nice and it was a good stopping point between Eureka and Mendacino.

If you want to stay at a place that abuses its customers this is the place! I will never stay here again. From the lady yelling from her front porch to the maid who obviously has a chip on her shoulder because of her job. To the reminder that this is a new bed and if anything happens to it you will have to pay. The employees are unhappy probaly from a bully boss.... Unbelievable I keep wondering if this was a prank on me. But its not it really happened. Ruined my lovely get away week-- There are so many other options up there to stay Avoid this place like the plaque............unless you like abusive situations

We stayed there for 2 days. Had a great experience.
Cabin 14 is GREAT for families. although less of a cabin, more like a double wide.
I'm glad I read the previous yelps as it prepared me for the stay I learned...
1. If you are going to arrive late after hours, call and let them know in advance. They will work with you but I could tell they dont like surprises and I could see them getting testy if you pop in late at night. I called in advance for a late arrival and it worked out well.
2. They have rules. Follow them and no one gets hurt. They are not too onerous and if you were the owners you would want these rules followed too. These types of property are often trashed by rude people.
3. No cell phone for ATT. Possible some for Verizon. They have wireless but it is fair to poor. You can get email but not send it unless you have a web based email service.
4. Remember, this a clean comfortable place to stay but it is not the Ritz.
If you come prepared and have a good attitude, you will have a great time.
