Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Humboldt House Inn Garberville
My family and I stayed here for one night in June. It was very nice. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. They offered a free wine and cheese at night and a great breakfast in the morning!!! I would stay here again!!!
Poor customer service
The room was not clean when we arrived at 10 PM. We had to wait until 11:30 PM in the lobby until the desk clerk could clean it. We had to argue with the manager to get more than 10% off the room! The nerve!
A great place to stay
I spent one night at the BW Humboldt House Inn after hiking the Lost Coast. It's a great place to stay! The staff was very friendly, the rooms are extremly spacious and very clean. The rooms have private decks and are definitly a good value. During my stay, I had no complaints about noise---in fact my room was very quiet. The complimentary continental breakfast is absolutely OK. They also offer a complimentary afternoon wine and cheese reception which is great. Also, there are a number of great restaurants within walking distance. I enjoyed my stay and would definitly stay at the BW Humboldt House Inn again!
Reliable comfort and cleanliness
We booked a night at the BW Humboldt House for a 2 and a half day visit to The Avenue, uncertain what we might find. Most of the independent tourist guidebooks rate the Garberville lodging establishments as nondescript and overpriced, but I disagree. Sure, it's a motor lodge, but the Humboldt House Inn staff was extremely courteous, professional, and helpful. Our king-sized room was quite large with an incredibly comfortable mattress and soft, nice, ample bedlinens. It was very clean and our non-smoking room smelled extremely fresh(NO cigarette smoke cover-ups!) . Continental breakfast began at 6:00, so we could enjoy a pick-me-up before hitting the trails at 7. At this time of year, noise wasn't really an issue, but we could hear some late nighters in the parking lot and hallway outside. All in all, so satisfied we came back for the remainder of our trip! Would stay again without any hesitation.
This hotel was a plesent surprize. The rooms are large, nicely decorated, and very clean. The continental breakfast and wine and cheese in the evenings are a great touch. I would definatly stay here again.
Great place to stay when checking out the redwoods
The rooms are spacious, clean, and well maintained. The location is ideal when visiting the Avenue of the Giants.
Avenue of the Giants--Beautiful!!
We really enjoyed this motel. The room was huge, and had a wondeful view from the patio, which led directly to the pool. This was a nice surprise, as the parking lot is in the back, and we had to go "underground" to reach our room--we were a little worried. You must try the Italian/Pizza restaurant behind the motel. (Mention you are a guest, they give you a discount.) The food is wonderful! Was a little surprised at the cost of the room, but it is a tourist area, I guess. Front desk was very professional & cordial. Great breakfast.
We had a great stay!
Good accommodations for the money
Having read the previous review, I was concerned because the two necessary items for me to enjoy a motel stay are a non-smoking room and QUIET. We arrived on Father's Day to spend four nights sightseeing. We had a two bedroom, one bath family unit on the first floor with a parking lot in front and back, which was handy, as two of the nights we were there, they were completely full and parking was at a premium. Everything was as advertised -- a nice continental breakfast with a USA Today on each table, and a wine tasting in late afternoon which we did not attend. The only glich was one day we had no housekeeping, but there were extra towels and glasses. We had no problem with noise, but of course, that all depends on your location and who is staying next to or above you.
Can't recommend if you need sleep
Big room and clean, but we could hear everything going on in the room next to us, as well as in the hall outside. It was a miserable night until things quietened down (NOTE: our neighbors were only talking, but we could hear their whole conversation...to say nothing of when they used their bathroom!). Then, we were awoken (and hightailed it to get out of there) at 7:00am with the Housekeeping crew banging on doors down the hall, making their presence known by yelling out "Housekeeping". I took the time to share our experience with the desk before we left and they seemed a little surprized, but offered nothing. I'd expect a little more at $100USD per night (and that was WITH the BCAA discount.
A Great Place
A beautifully furnished very large room. A complementary continental breakfast is included. The late afternoon complementary wine and cheese is a classy touch and allows you to meet your fellow guests in a relaxed atmosphere if you wish. If you want a great place to stay before or after driving the Avenue of the Giants, this is the place.

... adopting Nick, seems like a common theme, maybe we could swap him for a dog? There was a 49 ford four door in matte black with wire wheels and a V8, ready to go, wonder if I could fit that in the suitcase. The old garage had another much fancier pick up and lots or garageanalia. And all the cars were regularly driven hence why he was selling a few as he couldn't find time to drive them all.

We also had to leave quickly as he wanted to adopt Nick, he is having that effect on people, although I think the man who offered him a bed in London may have different intentions.

About a third of the way into our hike we were deep in the forest and suddenly heard an almighty scurry. We are certain it was a startled bear, just from the noise. It was definitely something big and we heard the footsteps through the leaves before it abruptly stopped again. We stood frozen still in silence, eyes wildly ...
