I chose this hotel based on its location. It is just 20 min drive to Eureka and/or Ave of the Giants. It's also a good point to go down to the lost coast. Staff were mostly friendly and helpful but I found the breakfast to be too simple, albeit free. The scrambled egg reminded me of school cafeteria that we always joked about being from powder, the bacon was the thinnest I've ever seen, thin as a sheet of paper. But they had the standard varieties and the 6-10 hours are very sensible. I also disliked the hardware (tables and chairs, toilet and tub shower)
Stayed two nights. Room impeccably clean and large. Grounds, facilities and landscaping very well maintained. Good breakfast offerings. Front desk staff friendly and professional. Walking distance to two restaurants. Near Hwy 101 exit but far enough away that one doesn't hear the freeway, even in the parking lot.
Of all the hotels I have stayed at, this B W ranks at the very top for all the great comfort, cleanliness, safe location, best breakfast, great indoor/outdoor pool, with a green picnic area with a BBQ! This is the place to come to and relax at. I greatly wish I had spent more time here.
This hotel was a short stop on a long road trip before heading into the redwoods and then San Fran. It was in a great location. Check in was quick and easy. The grounds are beautiful and well-kept. The room is well-appointed for this type of hotel. The queen/king suite fit our family of 5 well. Breakfast was great- the area was well stocked and extremely neat and clean. We enjoyed a nice walk along the river in the morning before heading out. We would absolutely stay again!
Rooms are clean but dark, needs more lighting. The TV was not working the weekend I checked-in, but I was given a discount and it was resolved the next day. Breakfast is as expected. Sausage, bacon, eggs, biscuits and gravy. I recommend serving sausages instead of the chorizo. The breakfast area was clean. I extended my stay for a third night because I loss sleep due to the noise outside and inside the room. It was summer and the children were running around. Also too many worker trucks but it is safe. I would come back here again.
Hotel location is good. Bed is of perfect stiffness and overall clean room and bathroom. Guest rooms were ok. Quite basic. Fridge was off due to energy savings, but no markers on the knob to adjust coldness. The coffee and other amenities were really basic. The warming light timer in the bathroom was broken and the bathroom fan was really noisy. I asked for an extension and was refused for 'staffing' reasons. For $230 a night, my expectation was a lot more.
Our room was huge and super clean. The internet was surprisingly fast. The pool was beautiful, it's half inside and half outside and it's only 5 feet deep which was great for the kids. The free cookies and coffee in the lobby was our favorite part. We all really enjoyed our stay.
Third stay at this hotel. Again, was not disappointed. Very clean and well maintained hotel. Far enough off the 101 offramp to be quiet. Good breakfast selection and two restaurants walking distance. Would stay again.
Our stay at the Best Western in Fortuna was exceptional. I have no connection with anyone at this motel, so my observations are completely unbiased. Everything was in order. The grounds were very well maintained. The service was excellent. The room was clean, quiet, and big. More importantly, the staff was excellent. You could tell by the way they communicated with each other and guests that they were a team, who respected each other and had all bought into the "team" idea. There obviously is some great management/leadership at this location (maybe you should be looking here when you have your next corporate position to fill). Furthermore, there is obviously some great ownership at work here. It was apparent that ownership has invested the resources that demonstrate a belief in the future of this property, as opposed to trying to milk a property as it fades. Our stay was so enjoyable that I only considered Best Western properties for my next night's stay as we made our way up the Oregon coast on Hwy 101. I only wish our next night's stay was as enjoyable. The only piece of advice I would give would be to heat the swimming pool a couple of degrees warmer.…
Victoria and Kim at the front desk always provided exceptional service and made me feel welcome. Victoria is a shining example of how to make someone feel like a guest and not a customer. Hospitality at its finest. I will never forget my experience.
