Best Western Plus Humboldt House Inn
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Garberville
Reviewed 15 May 2014

The hotel itself is entirely satisfactory. The afternoon wine and cheese was fun, the rooms spacious and comfortable, the breakfast ok. However we were nervous about the safety of our vehicle due to the appalling number of derelicts hanging around, even in the hotel parking lot. While standing talking to a staff person, a bum came up to try to beg money and while my husband was unloading the car, he saw a blatent drug deal happening, also in the hotel parking lot. It must be very difficult to keep up the standards of Best Western while completely surrounded by low lifes and criminals. Somehow, the hotel manages, but unless something is done to clean up this poor besieged little town, I don't see a promising future

This is an updated hotel with up-close parking available and lots of rooms. Wine and cheese at 5:30 p.m. Nice pool. If you want to sleep late ask for a 300 series of rooms - hikers an energetic people are up early and walking around in their rooms. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

Nice touch to have welcoming staff and complementary wine and cheese awaiting each evening. Good quality for the price and convenient location. Friendly help and a social atmosphere both upon arrival and during the complementary breakfast.

If you passing through and need a good night sleep then this is the place. Also, If you looking to explore the Red Woods, Eel River, local art and or just want to explore this area then this is a great place to call home base. 40 min to the beach and 2 minutes to Forest!

We stayed at this hotel for two nights last week. The hotel is delightful and much roomier than many we stayed in during our two week vacation in CA. The staff was very helpful and their breakfast was outstanding. Much better than other hotels we stayed in. They had a wine and cheese get together every night and it gave a chance to meet fellow travelers and taste local Napa wines. Would stay there again. The town itself is small and quaint but a perfect spot to stay while you do day trips to see the majestic Redwoods.

Room Tip: Stay in the back building but then again the front has better views and a balcony. We decided on the...

This is one of the nicest hotels we have stayed at in a long time. Complimentary wine and cheese in the evening and a fantastic breakfast with omelets and all the other common breakfast dishes in the morning. Room was large, clean and internet worked perfect.

see TitleBEWARE!!! Lots of transients in this very tiny town. Some of them, somehow appear to be staying at the hotel on a full time basis?! They don't know the difference between day & night. They wander the parking lot arguing & yelling. Even at 2:30 am - they decided to sit on the brick flower box 3 feet from our window & have a loud argument. Suspect there are a lot of drugs & alcohol in this town. The management appears to be well aware of all this, as I caught one having a loud discussion in parking lot with 4 transients involved. Had to wind our way between them to get to our car. Mentioned this person to management, & they said she was not their employee. Surprise! Next day she was right back at the hotel working for Best Western. When I pointed out one of the ill behaved people to one of management, she said, "Oh, she loves staying here every day with us". Management was very rude to me when I confronted them! Very scarey situation. We will never come to, or stay in this town again!!! The Sheriff is right next door to hotel, but he has told resident's that this town is not incorporated & there is nothing he can do. He is allowing a large transient camp to remain just outside the town. Security is definitely jeopardized - this is not a safe place to be! ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! Marked terrible on all factors of this stay, because Transients & Lack Of Security badly depleted any positive things about this hotel!!!
