Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Bayshore Inn Eureka
Nice hotel, but..........
We found our room at the Bayshore Inn to be VERY clean and comfortable with the exception of one thing. Our fireplace radiated heat continually, even with the thermostat shut completely off. The temp in the room was almost 90. When the clerk came to check it for us, we were advised that they could not do anything but open a window, that the heat must be coming from the fireplace in the room below. Adding that the thermostat on the wall reflected the temp in the fireplace and not the room. HA!
The room had a sm refrigerator, coffeepot and microwave.
Beds were comfortable.
Free Wireless Internet
Above average continental breakfast.
We enjoyed a quiet inside room, which was away from the street and on the second floor of the three-story elevator-serviced building. The desk clerks were cheerful, courteous, and professional, assisting us in locating a room for two nights on a busy weekend. The complimentary buffet breakfast included sausage, eggs, and potatoes in addition to the standard cereals, pastries, and juices. We appreciated the tasteful decor in the lobby, breakfast area, and rooms and had no complaints.
Roomy and cheerful
We have stayed at both Best Western's in Eureka and enjoyed them. The Bay Shore is larger and away from traffic noise. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We will stay there again when we visit family there.
Great if you are careful to avoid street rooms

Comment-Attendant does excellent job. Separate room for those avoiding typical loud morning news channels in most breakfast rooms. Hot potatoes, sausage, etc. This is what it should be.
Eureka is known for maximizing income from visitors who have little choice along this section of the Pacific Coast. For an area with a depressed economy, accommodations, food, and fuel are suspiciously similar in height and cost. This is one of the better places to stay in the Eureka area where normally visitors are perceived as fruit to be picked. Borders bookstore with good selection of newspapers (including Wall Street Journal) is nearby in adjacent mall.
In Eureka the default tourist attraction is watching the trees grow. The local service zeitgeist is abysmal. The greens have shut the economy down. Be prepared to entertain yourself. High end shopping in Old Eureka. The inmates at Humboldt State are now in charge of the asylum.
Will stay again
We visit family up here a couple times a year.
This is the BW we will return to. Why?
Nice, clean and staff was polite! really enjoyed the indoor pool area. Avoid the Marie Callendars because service is slow.
This is the better Best Western in Eureka avoid the other one unless youwish to be treated poorly or like noisy rooms
Bed like a rock; noisy street
We were booked to stay two nights at BW Bayshore, but moved after one. Bed was like a rock. Our room faced the mall and had a good deal of street noise. For $100+ I expected better.
We stay here every time we go to Eurkea!
We agree - Best Western Bayshore Inn is the best place to stay in Eureka. We go frequently to visit family and just love it. We have never been disappointed - it is always clean, the folks are always friendly and the facilities are great. Also the location is central for a longer visit - it is near to everything - movies, mall, restaurants, Old Town, the college. And the staff is always friendly and happy to see you. And the piano and cookies in the lobby are so inviting. Come and enjoy Eureka!
Excellent front desk attendant!!!
we stayed at this hotel at the end of our spring break vacation on april 16, 2004...we were behind schedule, had been driving for six hours from coos bay, oregon to eureka and were totally tired, hungry and cranky. the front desk attendant (Mark?) was friendly and sympathetic to my 12-year old son's burning desire to go for a swim even tho the pool was due to close in like, five minutes, and arranged to, let's just say, accomodate a what would have been VERY disappointed kid. the marie callendar's reastaurant next door provided room service and the next morning we were happy to partake in the very satisfactory buffet breakfast offered in the main building. we appreciated the special touch of those luggage-trolly things that were outside the elevator (our room was on the 3rd floor) so we could get everything up to the room for all 4 of us in one trip. the hotel was completely booked and yet the people were friendly, the room was clean and inviting, and there was plenty of parking. we will definately choose this hotel again on our next trip north, and recommend it to all of our friends who travel from the bay area.
We stayed at this hotel several nights in July while my husband was on business. THe hotel is great and the location is nice. It sits right on the bay and we watched the boats come and go all day. The mall is directly across the street which the children loved. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. The hotel staff was more than helpful and the breakfast choices at the hotel even met my pickiest child's taste.
The pool, spa, sauna and fitness room were very nice as well. The pool is half indoor/half outdoor. I will definitely go back.
This three floor hotel was quite nice. We stayed for one night while traveling through Northern California. The rooms were fairly large with nice new furnishings. We had a nice variety at the continental breakfast - sausage, bacon, oatmeal, flavored tea, coffee, grapes, oranges, bananas, cereal, pastries, bagels and toast. We didn't get to use the pool because it only stayed open until 8 pm. Wish it would have stay open at least till 10 pm. The view of the bay was overlooking a work yard out back. Not bad though.

Unfortunately, we said goodbye to the Oregon Coast today. We got up this morning and explored part of the Gold Beach Coast, which was conveniently located behind our hotel. This area is once again a different type of coast. Followed the path through low dunes covered with grass, to a sandy beach with plenty of driftwood and some unusual rocks …
... Eureka in good time and cruised around the town, checking it out, trying to find a post office without success as we were trying to send through the post cards to the gran babies regularly. We tried lunch at the 'Lost Coast' bar and chilled for the afternoon, finishing with the domestic stuff of washing at the laundry mat - interesting clientele, for sure.
Off to Coos Bay tomorrow.

The other interesting display was cleverly called "The Big Tree", and it is the largest tree in the area. The Big tree is 304 Ft tall, 21.6 ft in diameter, has a circumference of 68 ft, and is approximately 1500 years old. It really is HUGE! By now we were completely hiked out, with over 12,000 steps on our pedometers, so we were looking for coffee, and stopped at the Visitors Center. No ...
... and awe-struck soul;
For here we sense life's proper goal;
To be like these, straight, true and fine,
To make our world, like theirs, a shrine,
Sink down, Oh, traveler, on your knees,
God stands before you in these trees.

Breakfast was in the Pacific Grill, the hotel restaurant. ...
One of the stops was to a yogurt shoppe where you make your own from a number of different kinds and toppings, then it is weighed by the shop keeper then relax and enjoy the scenery. After that, we hopped in the car and headed to "The Top of the World" which is about a ten-mile drive above Arcata where we passed acres and acres of Redwood Trees on a small curvy asphalt road that wound to the top. The views were awesome and is missed ...
