“perfect spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

Great place to stay. Quiet, comfortable and historical. Perfect spot to launch to the Avenue of the Giants. Dinner in the pub with Lagunitas on tap made me very happy. Kid's menu a plus. Breakfast of fresh baked scones, coffee and fruit was just right to get us on our way to see the big trees.

Well that's what I heard. I went looking but could not find any ghosts. They do close the third floor though. Anyway we had a street view and this town is quiet at night. Very old fashioned style room. Built before the turn of the last century with beautiful woods all about in the lobby and event rooms. Must have been a grand place in it's day. We had Wifi and a TV but you can request none of those things. Spacious room and bathroom. #207 If you like old fashioned and not to perfect and a high price this is it. We liked it a lot. Can't wait to go back and meet Casper!

Room Tip: Only certain rooms have wifi.

My wife and I stayed in this Inn at the end of a three month ROADTRIP. The Inn has seen better days and the rooms are in need of some updating. With this said I still gave it four dots because of it's history and the fact that I love to support the older hotels and Inns even though they are past their prime. If someone purchased this Inn and did a major upgrade, the rooms would go for $ 259.00 and not $. 129.00. I slept just fine. Also the pub serves VERY good food. Do not be put off by the way it looks when you walk into the room. The food was a BIG surprise and at a nice price with great service.

We enjoyed a wonderful getaway just at the time we need it. Memories of the past when mills were running constantly beckoned me to revisit Scotia. From the moment we made our reservation until we said goodbye two days later it was wonderful, perfect weather, excellent service with freedom to learn about the deeper past history of this "Company town." I was not ready for the museum that was so carefully cared for with exhibits and information from the docent. There is much to experience in the outlying area including the town of Lolita which is actually growing. It must be experienced! It is still possible to experience something of the great redwood forests that fed the world with such beautiful wood products. The Avenue of the Giants will give us a portrait of ancient time when one could hardly walk among them. Today they are adjacent to the old Redwood highway but surprising quiet. Lingering for at least an half hour heightens the experience. One should read up on the history of Scotia before arriving. It is rich in accessible history. Yes, there are a few amenities lacking but all the more interesting to live at least something of the life that was lived by the loggers , sawyers and especially a small town cinema house, all built from first growth redwood much older than any visitor! I really enjoyed photographs in the hallways that depicted the early days of the Pacific Lumber Company.

Room Tip: Trust the desk clerk to give the best.

This is a quaint hotel centrally located near the Redwoods and coastal areas of Northern California. The managers have tried to retain the atmosphere of a nineteenth century building which it is, with antiques and appointments of that era throughout. But there are some shortcomings and idiosyncrasies that one must expect or at least be aware of given the age of the property.

The windows are single pane and if you happen to be in any of the front-facing rooms the street noise is constant. Main street on which the hotel is located is the only way to enter Scotia so all traffic into and out of town passes by this hotel. Ask for rooms in the back or sides.

Adjacent to the east side of the hotel is a lovely grassy area with huge trees for shade. Eventhough this is part of the hotel there are no chairs or tables provided by which the quests can utilize this inviting area!

Breakfast is provided but it is sparse to say the most. The only beverage provided is coffee; no fruit, cereal, juice. Only bagels. Given the price of a room I think management could do a little better here.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the front get street noise.

Weary travellers would love this historical Inn. we were heading back to San fran on the coastal road and were at the end of our travels. We were thrilled to find such an interesting Inn, full of history and we felt comfortable straight away. Especially as the bar had a relaxed feeling and the food was delicious. The staff were unobtrusive but helpful and friendly. Breakfast scones were spot on and generous. Beds comfortable and we had a very quiet night's sleep. No airconditioning but window opened and we felt safe. So close to the main road it was easy to find but the noise of the main road was not heard. Clean towels and rooms. Ample space. The local shops and cinema were fascinating and we felt safe walking around in the evening. Definite stay next time.

We didn't know what to expect when we booked this inn for an overnight stop, Scotia itself is described as a place you stop on the way to somewhere else with little to recommend it. This historic building was obviously the place to stay in the logging heyday, would love to have visited then. Despite it's elegance, there seems to be something sad about the place - seemed empty, echoey (is that a word?!) and lacking staff, indeed it seemed that three girls were running around doing everything. We had one of the smaller Queen sized rooms which was perfectly fine and well furnished - the bed very comfortable, nice towels, good hot shower.

We ate at the pub - we had coconut shrimp, sweet potato fries and salad - delicious! good selection of beers, could do with better wine selection. Breakfast was coffee/tea/orangejuice; yoghurt; bagels; yummy fresh scones - a highlight! Would recommend as a very reasonable priced accommodation to explore the Eureka/Redwoods area.

Room Tip: We had a queen sized room at the rear of the property ?206 - it doesn't have wifi but there is a...
