“Nice small town hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2008

We stayed in the motel in June 2008 for 1 night while travelling through n. CA. This is an RV park with motel. We found the room to be clean and served our purposes. It was bigger than a typical motel room with 2 lounge chairs and small table. It also had a refrigerator. There was a bench and table in front of the room also.

We used the swimming pool. It was fine - it is all 4 ft. - too deep for my younger child to stand in. There was a large hot tub, not too hot, there, but they strictly did not allow anyone under 14 in it. The office had a straight view out to the hot tub, and an employee ran out to admonish my kids when they tried out the hot tub. My biggest complaint about the place was the rather silly hot tob rule. We could not find any way to turn on hot tub jets.

They also had a mini golf course. We did not use it.

We walked down through the campground to the Eel River and had a lot of fun playing in the river - about 2 feet deep at its deepest. It had a rock beach. We saw an arcade room in the campground.

  • Liked — large room, river fun
  • Disliked — children not allowed in hot tub, pool too deep for young kids

Resort? I think not. No food services, for one thing. My kids wouldn't go in the pool because it was too crowded and noisy and full of little kids, who my kids think pee in public pools. The spa is a smaller, warmer version of the pool, but no one under 14 is allowed (less pee?). Neither one opens before noon. Room was nice enough for your average motel, and I liked our little patio (though it had no privacy at all). I would never camp here -- very crowded together. RV spots are often rented by the month or year, so there is an established community of trailer livers. The HIGHLIGHTS: A free hour in the private sauna, which shut off after 20 minutes and would n't come back on (yes, I set the timer to 60 minutes); very close to the Avenue of the Giants. Next time I would pay a little extra and stay in Miranda, Weott or Myers Flat.

  • Liked — Location, and the room was basic but nice.
  • Disliked — Housekeeper complained loudly about the last guest not tipping. Bring your own shampoo.

This place may be OK for RVs, but the motel was really bad. Apparently the owner has installed some relatives in some of the motel units, and we happened to end up next door to a bachelor apartment, with a bunch of guys enjoying Monday night football. The walls were paper thin, and we could clearly hear conversations, TV, snoring, the whole bit from the afternoon right until the next morning. Management also owns some little yappy dogs, which they walk in front of the motel units while talking loud baby talk to them. Room amenities are very sparse, towels of the cheapest kind, no phone, small screen TV. In short, we'll never go back. If you want a good night's sleep, stay away from this place!

  • Liked — location
  • Disliked — noise -- from the management and their friends

We camp at Dean Creek often during the summer months and love it. It is a great place to go for family fun in the sun! The campground, as well as the pool and hot tub, are kept clean and well maintained. Management is friendly and try very hard to ensure guests enjoy their visit. We have met friends there that we camp with regularly now.

I love this place. There so much to do as a family. I have children between the ages of 2 to 15 and they are always so excited to go to Dean Creek.

Noisy, rude guests, spiders and webs in the room, other bugs crawling in the sink, hard bed, ripped towels, no coffee on my horrible 2nd morning, unapologetic management. I'd rather sleep in my car than stay here again.
