“Very helpful owner”
Reviewed May 22, 2008

This is a family owned motel, with the owners living on the premises. They care about the property, and about making sure that their guests have all the information they want to make their visit to the area pleasurable. Just ask questions, and you'll get the answers.

This is a basic motel, but my room had a microwave and refrigerator.

It's a pleasant change from the chain properties.

This was the second time we stayed at the Humboldt Gables; both times we just stopped in on the way to/from CA/OR...too tired to drive another mile. The facility is small and family owned. The young man is wonderfully kind, helpful and accommodating. But be warned if you ask for information on the area he will give you all you need. :)

This is not a fancy place, no room service, no satin sheet, no spa/pool...but clean and kind and happy to have you, and reasonably priced.

Some friends and I had initially made reservations at Redcrest Resort, but we were turned away because we had two extra people. We searched for another place to stay and came across Humboldt Gables Motel. The manager was very friendly, saw that we had extra people, and brought us extra towels. He even let us use his grill untensils that night. If you're budget-minded and are looking for a clean, quiet, and friendly place to stay in Humbolt Park, Humboldt Gables Motel is perfect for you!

In January 2006, on an unplanned trip through the Redwoods my husband and I drove into Scotia/Rio Dell about 8:00 pm, desperate for sleep. We saw the Gables; it looked sort of O.K., but not great.
Looks are deceiving!!!
The manager let me have a key to check out the room.
Not top in decor, but immaculately clean. No smoke or mildew odor. Hershey's kisses atop the pillows convinced us to stay.
This isn't a fancy motel....but...
I rate this motel above average because for about $58 we had a quiet, comfortable room. Two double beds, small refrigerator and coffee pot.
When we checked out the manager gave us lots of tips, maps, directions.
This motel was a pleasant surprise.
