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.

... didn't actually get out of our tent until 11.30 when the rain started to lighten. We packed up as quickly as possible and headed all of 200m to the Visitors' Centre where the campsite rumours of free coffee were confirmed. As the rain worsened once again, we were offered towels and invited in to watch a film about redwoods. Seemed like a plan. The film emphasised the importance of the redwoods and ...

And there right next door to the cafe we saw them! All in their glory, some of the most wonderful things I had seen, old, rustic, well rusty anyway. Next to the cafe was the shed from hell with lots of old cars for sale. The owner came out and chatted and tried to sell us a few and then ...
... had lunch in Sausalito, but didn't see Klinger. The owner of the diner told us that he loved it in Sausalito because the weather is so much better than San Fran, all of two kilometres away? 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.
Ann drove most of the way till we got into the redwoods which was much safer ...
... quickly change into our hiking gear, pack some water and set off.
Fern Canyon is pretty much described in the name, as you walk through the narrow canyon the 80 foot walls are completely covered with vibrant ferns and mosses dripping with moisture. The stream that flows through it has carved its way through the rock after thousands of years and has provided a prehistoric setting like no other. Which is why it was the perfect place for scenes of Jurassic Park ...
... hour down the road we stopped at The Grandfather tree which is 1800 years old and very, very wide. We also went into a house made out of a single hollowed out log. After ice creams we turned onto the Avenue of Giants. The biggest oldest trees we have ever seen. Tonight we are staying at a new but very plain RV park. Our little ...
