However the owner, John Porter, is the reason I've decided to write this review as he was concerned to hear of our experience, listened to our complaint, didn't try to duck the issue...More
I stayed 3 nights in one of the small queen bed rooms. Perfect size for 1, air conditioning during an incredible heat wave worked great! I love historic hotels and thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, even with the construction.
A couple of points of improvement...More
Old, musty, not even close as advertised. No air conditioning, had to use a floor fan. Does not have a pool on premises, you have to walk to nearby campground. No parking at all and get ready to carry your luggage up 4 flights of...More

The new building with the elevator and 3 ADA guest suites is expected to be finished mid-July 2017. At this time, there is no way to get into the building without at least a few steps. However, that will all change in July... More
The new building with the elevator and 3 ADA guest suites is expected to be finished mid-July 2017. At this time, there is no way to get into the building without at least a few steps. However, that will all change in July. We do have designated "pet rooms" and "pet-free rooms". We would love to have you visit us late summer.

hi. if you have questions about the hotel, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful - most of them live in the area. i would email them directly. if you have questions about the area, there is the garberville chamber of commerce
there are some very nice places around there - up in the redwoods and over on the coast at shelter cove - the benbow itself is wonderful -there's a golf course as part of the place. and if you combine this with a trip to san francisco, you can take either the inland route via the wine country or the coastal road down to Point Reyes. All pretty incredible. good luck
