This motel was certainly a reminder of the olden days of car travelling, when every little motel was a unique design and run by a nice family. When we checked in, the owner asked us a few questions about our plans and then gave us great advice on where to go in Redwoods National Park and Eureka. We followed his suggestions and had a great time.

The room was a good size, the bed was comfortable, and there was a very useful dorm-size fridge/microwave. The bathroom had a very nice rain shower head and good pressure, better than some hotels I've stayed at for twice the price. Speaking of price, it was very reasonable, especially compared to the chain motels in Eureka which were quite a bit more expensive.

Also, we didn't see any of the "shady characters" mentioned in other reviews, and while it might not be the best part of town, Eureka is a small town and this is about three blocks from the cute shops. There is a bit of road noise, since it is literally on the highway, but so are all the other motels, and it's not objectionable if the bathroom window is closed.

We would definitely stay here again if we end up in Eureka.

Colorful and unique, funky layout for this small motel in a handy location to experience the old town section of Eureka. Large old style rooms, good beds and a hard working and attentive manager. Stairs up to rooms could be issue when dealing with luggage.

Thank you Allan G for your review. We appreciate your kind words and agree with you that stairs are always harder to take luggage up than an elevator. You are completely correct. We encourage all customers who do not wish to engage in this type of physical activity to consider other more modern facilities to fit their needs better if a downstairs unit is not available. Nonetheless, we hope that we can accommodate you again soon.

Town House is an old motel and looks it, inside and out. It's also not in the best area of town, if, in fact, Eureka has a "best" area of town. On the other hand, if you're stuck in Eureka for a night, Town House was cheap, the room was clean, bed was comfortable, and the manager had some good suggestions. The Lost Coast Brewery is close by and it's the best place to eat in town. So, overall, Town House is OK for a one night stay.

Thank you VonWoogle for your review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. We want to clarify that the City of Eureka is very unique and quite historic. People often mistake the older buildings and neighborhoods as "run down", but this is in fact the true definition of historic. The area we are located in is a prime area for tourists and in back of World Famous homes and boutique shops. We agree though, the town is quite different compared to a shiny city like Vancouver where you reside. We hope that we will able to host you again in the near future.

I stayed here for two nights while exploring the redwoods in this beautiful area of California. It has a great location, right off of SB 101, and close to the historic part of Eureka. The motel dates back to the 60's but that just adds to the charm. It is immaculate, and well run. It has an internal courtyard, and the rooms are on the second floor with parking underneath. The owner is a very nice man who takes a great deal of pride in his motel and can offer useful information on the many wonderful local attractions. I would highly recommend this place.

Thank you Jayemwright for your wonderful review. We are glad that you were able to appreciate the "charm" as you put it, of our 1960's property. It definitely has a lot of unique character and appeal which many other properties aren't able to offer. Please come and visit us again soon.

While on a motorcycle trip to the west coast we stayed the night at this motel in Eureka, CA. The room was VERY clean and comfortable. I wasn't to keen on not having A/C at first but a Floor Stand style fan was provided and as the evening went on it cooled down a lot from the breeze off of the ocean. The room was a reasonable price and was located upstairs. The downstairs area is a garage/parking area which was nice if there was to be any bad weather as well as security camera's in place. We went next door to the bar/restaurant for a steak dinner. The steak was awesome and the waitress fun & courteous.The shower was fantastic because it had the BIG shower head.

Thank you Bear_Tree for your review. We are incredibly happy you enjoyed our convenient location and the ocean breeze, which as much as I would like to take credit for, you'll have to thank Mother Nature for that one. We look forward to having you as a guest again soon.
