“California Vacation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

Our 1st stop in California, what a welcome it was. Great hotel, rooms are nice size and very clean. The Welcome wine and cheese in the afternoon was a really nice treat, got to meet some other travelers, and chat about what to see and do. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was also a little above the standard hotel breakfast. Great value.

We stayed at 11 BW hotels during our travels and generally got good service and enjoyed the breakfasts at all the BW Plus. The food selection was excellent and well presented. The rooms were all very clean and nicely maintained. Only the BW at Moro Bay had problems providing non-smoking rooms.

There aren't many choices in Garberville and I can't imagine any of the other properties being better that this one. The hotel is decent, but, check-in was very slow. We arrived after 4 PM and there were still some rooms that had not been cleaned. Our was ready. The room was large with the usual amenities e.g. large TV, fridge, wi-fi etc. The front of the property is near a busy and sometimes noisy road. We enjoyed the wine/cheese reception. We didn't use the pool or spa as they appeared to no be too clean. The air conditioning worked well and was needed because of the noisy road and the super duper heavy comforter on the bed. The things must have weighed 10 lbs. Don't know why it was necessary. Breakfast was OK, but with a full hotel seating could be difficult. If you are going to stay in Garberville this may be your only choice. It's OK but not great.

This hotel is located in a sketchy area with too few parking spaces and poor lighting in the parking lot. We arrived around 9 pm and wanted to grab a bite to eat preferably someplace close within walking distance. The desk clerk suggested a place a block away but after walking there, we found that every restaurant in this part of town was closed already. Along the short walk from the hotel, we were approached by no less than 6 or 8 (presumably) homeless folks sacked out in the doorways of closed businesses. Most were 20-somethings with backpacks, hanging out with others. There was no aggression, but it was a bit intimidating for my wife and I to run into this in a tiny town as we walked along the poorly-lit street.

Back at the hotel, we settled into our room. It was furnished nicely, but not particularly clean. There was hair in the ice bucket - ugh! The hotel appears to be a 'home away from home' for many contractors. There were many contractor vans and pickup trucks in the parking lot. In turn, very early the next day the noise of diesel trucks starting at sunrise woke us up much earlier than we would have preferred.

One further note... after a stressful 8 hr drive through torrential rain we were looking forward to using the hot tub at this hotel. Unfortunately, it was closed. In summary, if you are looking just for a bed and shower, this place will do. However, if you want a clean hotel room in a nice, walkable town followed by a lazy morning wake-up, look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Arrive early in the day to grab a parking space in a safe area.

We had a good stay at Best Western in Garberville. We found staff were friendly. The room was larger than average and the rate was good. We found the hotel to be clean. The bed was comfortable. The continental breakfast was better than most and the wine and cheese was a nice touch. Good location and and the only draw back was although there are plenty of lunch places most of the local restaurants close by 3pm so getting dinner can be a challenge.

We were in room 205A in the front building. Nice spacious room with balcony overlooking grassy area and view to mountains. Room was modern and very clean. A nice touch was the complimentary wine and cheese served from 5:30 to 7:30 every evening. There were plenty of selections for breakfast. There were eggs, sausages, biscuits and gravy, cereals, fruit and juices. Would definitely visit again.
