Small, quiet Motel with a beautiful view. Clean as can be. Plenty of furniture room for storage, Clean bathrooms with wonderful towels. Friendly manager , We stayed 4 days. If you want to pay $400.00 for a room go elsewhere. We had everything we needed right here and can roll our own bags around. Well kept. We were very busy...

Its cheaper then Eureka or Ferndale. Nothing special. Clean. Good location. Older doesn't mean dirty. Too many mistake older for dirty, don't do this. If you're passing thru it's a comfortable stay reasonably priced.

Older motel in a nice setting. The room was clean and the motel has been kept up. My parents are elderly and had a hard time getting around in the room because there was so much furniture in it. There is also nowhere to go eat after 6:00PM that is within a mile. It is a small motel (12 units...

We stayed here and thought it was great. Very clean and owner was friendly & helpful. Would recommend. We were passing through and ended up staying 2 nights. We used the area as a base to see red woods. The town is very small so there is a shortage of restaurants.

Clean and quiet. Conveniently located and easily accessible. My husband and I rode our motorcycles. While checking in, we were asked 1 or 2 bikes. The man at the counter says here's your towels and hands us several towels to clean out bikes. How awesome is that?!! Gave us a room toward the corner of the lot so we had...

This was my second time staying at this establishment. The price is definitely high for what amenities are offered. However this is the only place in RIO DEL. The staff is friendly and the area is stunning.

Right at the top of the Avenue of the Giants this was the perfect stop for us to wake up early and hit the big trees with energy. Very clean and well kept, we slept very well. Cleaner and more modern than most motels in the area. We were allowed to use our camp stove on the front yard area....

The owner,Dave, was very friendly and helpful in telling us things to be sure and see and how to get to a restaurant we were looking for. The hotel is older but it was clean and the beds were very comfortable. We paid about $80 for a room with a king size bed which I felt was reasonable considering the...

We are seasoned road trippers used to spare accommodations but this place was truly awful. Should have listened to Bethany 2601- the only other accurate review on here! Front desk clerk acted like we were an inconvenience. We stayed in room 5. Carpet had more stains than I could count. I didn't walk around without flip flops for a second....

Thought the price was a bit steep for our budget, we had a nice stay, the owner upgraded us to 2 beds, and the room was comfortable. We got good local tips on places to see and the room was clean. When you check out, take the back road to Ferndale, it's a lovely drive and ends up in a...
