We stayed 2 nights while we were touring the area. The pool was very nice. The beds were very comfortable. This was a central location to see the Redwoods and to go white water rafting on the Willow Creek. The breakfast served was very nice and changed every day to give us variety. There were many healthy options such as...

We stayed here for one night while passing through from San Fran to Oregon. We visited Avenue of the Giants on our way to the hotel and the Redwoods National Park on our way out.

A clean, comfortable, spacious room, as expected. Unexpected was the extraordinarily courteous and helpful service of the young man at the desk when we checked in on the evening of July 25. I'll be back

Huge room, huge bathroom. Clean and comfortable. Microwave and fridge. On site guest laundry. This is at an airport but you'd never know, very quiet. Only downside is nowhere to eat without driving into McKinleyville 5 minutes drive away. Self service breakfast on paper plates with plastic cutlery. Basic but enough to eat, typical very weak American coffee. Strange diluted...

What a nice, descriptive review of our Property. Thank you very much for the kind words. We pride ourselves on having such large rooms (25% larger than a Standard Hotel room) and our staff is always more than happy to help our guests with anything they may need. I did want to point out however, that there is a restaurant...

I stayed in the Holiday Inn Express for three days in late July to take in as much of the area's natural beauty as possible. The hotel is quite beautiful in itself. The rooms are beautiful and the swimming pool and spa were especially nice. They have a good breakfast for long hours. Since my room included a fridge and...

My wife and I found this hotel very nice. We toured Redwood National Park during the day and found his hotel very close to the park and more comfortable than most Holiday Inn Expresses. Staff was extremely accommodating and gave us excellent recommendation for dinner. Breakfast started at 430A, which I'm sure is due to those catching flights, but we...
