Reviewed 7 July 2016

This is a three star hotel so do not expect more that that. What we got was a clean and spacious room. (Room 23 for us) Bed was very comfortable and that was the reason we were there. Bathroom was spacious and again clean. It is at the start of town when traveling North. It was quiet even though closer to the Freeway. As noted the pool is not worth swimming in, but you are probably there to see the Redwoods and you are much better to find a swimming hole on the River, Owner is very friendly and helpful, and one of the nicest we came across. As noted by others the reception is not manned but the owner is only a couple of minutes away. We love these older motels with personality. It is part of Americana. So not a generic Best Western!! Support the local community by staying at a local hotel. For Food we recommend Eel River Cafe for Breakfast and Calicos which has live music for dinner. Both are full of personality and great hosts and great food. The locals are an eclectic bunch but we found them all very friendly when we worked up the nerve to talk with them.

Room Tip: Room 23 has two queen beds and is at one end of the hotel. Is a very large room!!!

Room was clean, breakfast better than average for this type of motel. Easy access in beautiful area with the largest trees you will find anywhere. The town can truly be called Funky but there are a number of simple but very good cafes.

Hotel is easily accessible from highway. The office is not staffed continuously so you need to know that and be OK with that. Check-in was easy as long as I made the time window when the front office person would be there.

Room was clean and spacious. Grounds need trimming and you can't use the swimming pool (but we weren't planning to do so anyway).

This was the perfect stay for us as we began our Avenue of the Giants sightseeing trip.

Dingy room that smelled stuffy on entry. Poor lighting, almost non-existent internet. Difficult to find power sockets. Over priced.

The good point was the nice guy on reception.

Need I say more? Well the tv was poor and the carpet stained.

Having said that, if you can afford the Benbow Inn, you'll be fine. After all, it isn't actually IN Garberville
If not, and you can afford to stay at the Best Western, and to eat there, and stay in your car all the time you're not in the hotel you'll be fine
If you can't afford the Best Western, you really need to stay somewhere else
Garberville has a really bad drug problem, and it's really not a nice place for normal people
There are scores of reprobates roaming the streets
They live rough around the other hotels
When they have a bit of money, they club together and a room at the budget motels
We ended up here after refusing to stay at the Motel Garberville but really, this place isn't a right lot better
The carpet was absolutely minging
The sheets, if they had been changed, had not been ironed
Lord knows what the brown blanket with the fag burns was hiding
We paid over $100 and slept on top of the bed in our jackets, fearing what we might catch, and we kept our shoes on to walk to the bathroom
It's really not nice in Garberville
Don't stay here

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

We stayed here the night before visiting the Avenue of he Giants. There are probably 4 hotels right on this street and this is was the only hotel with vacancy. We were told it was the second nicest in town. All the hotels are pretty old but adequately maintained. Clean, quiet and met our need for the night.

Like many others, we chose this place because it was close to the Avenue of the Giants. Also, because the only Best Western in town wanted $180/night. When we first opened our door, there was a quarter size spider on the wall above the bed. The maid came in and killed it with a broom since it was out of reach. No big deal, I can handle one spider... But then we killed 3 other spiders and an earwig IN/ON THE BEDS. My aunt and uncle got a room 4 doors down and they had sugar ants IN THEIR BED!!! Just an overall GROSS place!! Pool was too green to even think about swimming in. Coffee pots in the rooms didnt work and were very dirty. Never ever EVER!!!
