Our room was very clean and the service was excellent! The employees were helpful and friendly. The motel is right across from harbor, centrally located with several fine restaurants within walking distance. You are able to park right next to the front door of your room if you're on the first floor. I'm looking forward to my next visit to... More

Rooms are huge - furnishings were first rate and comfortable. The under cover parking was unique and kinda nice to have since it does occasionally drizzle some around there. Great location for access to Jedidiah Smith's Howland Hill Road and not so far to Prairie Creek Redwoods, which was my reason for being there. I would stay there again in... More

This motel is a great place to see the results of what 1redtree can make with a retro feel from the 70's. The beds are not top of the line and the towels are a little thin but the price made up for any short coming. Make sure to spend a little time at the lobby and get the history... More

The rooms are nothing more than average, perhaps with more vintage charm. The building however is something else. Built by one single redwood tree it was truly one of the coolest places I have ever seen.

Loved the thought of a retro motel in pristine condition. Sorry that the tree was sacrificed to make this whole hotel, but think how many happy people have stayed here over 60 years. Beautifully maintained. Carport right outside room. Several rooms appear to be wheel chair accessible. HUGE rooms with 2 comfy beds, TV, chairs, desk, dresser and floor space.... More

57,000 board feet of lumber from one tree built this place that has been lovingly kept up by the son of the second owner. I would stay again in a heartbeat. The curly redwood of which the hotel is made is everywhere inside and out and is beautiful - thankfully he has resisted the advice to reduce his commitment by... More

We were traveling down the Pacific Hwy for over a week. This location was good, near the seals and good restaurants. However I have big complaint concerning the mattress. Both my husband and I had a SLEEPLESS night as the mattress was SO hard and had backaches for a few days.

We try to please everyone, finding that perfect mattress for everyone is a bit of a task at all lodging properties. Some like firm, some like soft, some like pillow top, so we go in the middle. Sorry for your sleepless night. More

The rooms are spacious and spotless. The shower is large and water plentiful. Typical small scratchy towels though. The old redwood accents are well maintained. Nice to have covered parking as it rains a lot. Only complaint: hard beds, hard pillows.

The woodwork is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and clean. It was a very convenient location for visiting Redwood National Park. The only downside was no coffee pot in the room and we had to wait until the front desk/lobby opened in the morning before we could get coffee (7:30-8-ish).

We needed a room quick, near the beach and affordable- this place was an exact match- while it is older - it's quaint and you can walk to restaurants, shops and the beach!!!! We had a comfortable bed, good shower and enough Windows could open to let in the air.
