          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.

          Helpful Staff


          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

          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.

          Great Stay


          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.

          Nice Place


          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 …

          We sat on the sofa in reception and picked at them.

          This is a motel that not just welcomes dogs, but probably is more pleased to see dogs than their owners.
