Best Western Plus Humboldt House Inn
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Garberville
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Enjoyed our first visit here only. Last visit in September was on a weekend and the place was filled with rowdy beer drinking teens. You also pay a hefty premium for the wine and cheese happy hour. Checking out in the morning I found a beer bottle on top of one of my car tires, luckily before we drove off. It's a strange little hippy type town, but there is one nice restaurant within walking distance. Anyways, after three stays there, this was our last.

My overall rating is not the average of my specific ratings below because there is no box to rate ambiance.

Front desk staff and housekeeping staff were all very nice. We stayed 2 nights in a King room with a pool and mountain view and were quite pleased with the décor space and amenities. Actually a nicer room than the one be paid double for in Mendocino (OK we paid for the ocean view in Mendocino). This is probably the nicest place to stay in Garberville and, perhaps our experience was more reflective of being in Humboldt County than a reflection on this property...... BUT we are middle-aged non-marijuana users so we were rather creeped out by the other guests, the open drug deals and smell of weed smoking going on in the parking lot, noise from the adjacent rooms in the middle of the night, young adults going behind the building into the bushes for who-knows-what. The sheriff's and fire department are adjacent and a sheriff's car in full view. So, I guess that tells you something about this community. (we came for the redwoods). At breakfast, some showed up in dirty bare feet, ratted hair, hoodies up and holes in their pants (breakfast room is street-side). They might have been street people who sneaked in for breakfast (you have to use your room key to get into the breakfast room but the door doesn't always shut tight). However the nice ladies in the breakfast room did their best to ensure people had a room key to keep out the street people. When we commented to the front desk lady about the drug trade in the parking lot, she said "Oh really?"....like she didn't know. Breakfast was just OK. Breads, waffles, cereals nice, but if you want low carbs your choice is a sort of mass-produced omellete and sausage. No variation in the offering. Biscuits with sausage gravy seemed like a strange offering for this part of the country.

Room Tip: If you want to stay here, then choose a second floor room facing the pool and mountains. Rooms on t...

Our one-night stay was very pleasant and comfortable. In a remote part of northern California, this is a very clean and well-maintained hotel with large rooms and comfortable beds. Excellent accomodations before visiting the Avenue of the Giant Redwoods, about six miles north.

For 3 of us traveling, we got a mini suite with 2 rooms connecting. 1 Room had 2 queen beds, 2nd room had 1 king size bed. Hotel served wine and cheese in the early evening and a free full breakfast in the morning. Hotel was clean and employees were very friendly. Just wish the suite had a bath and a half. Only had 1 bathroom.

Room Tip: Towards the back, a way from the main street

Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly, helpful staff. We were travelling with 2 small dogs which can be challenging at some hotels. This one is very well set up for this. We were given doggie treats and extra sheets to place on the top of the beds (a great idea for other hotels). It just shows that they care about their property. The wine and cheese served in the evening was an added bonus. Also loved the Bath and Body Works soaps, shampoo, etc. Breakfast was basically the same hotel faire. Overall, a great experience. Can't wait to stay again.

Garberville is a funky little town with some trippy people walking the streets. If you decide to visit, the Best Western looked to be the nicest place to stay. If you are a non-smoker, don't make the mistake I made and stay in a "smoking" room ..very strong smell. I forgot I was in Humboldt County. The wine and cheese in the afternoon was nice and the breakfast was surprisingly good. The bed was nice and firm and the towels were soft. Nice Bath and Body soaps and shampoos.

Nice hotel and great base for those wanting to explore the great outdoors and only 30 mins from the great Humboldt Redwoods State Park by car. The rooms were clean and kept clean every day. The free breakfast was good in the morning and the staff always on hand to help you with your stay
