We spent 2 nights at the historic Requa Inn at the end of a two-week road trip. The hotel has fabulous views of the Klamath river and on the morning we were checking out there were 4 junior bald eagles hunting on the other side of the river that Dave (one of the owners pointed out). In reading their website I realized we are going to be there in slow season when there was little to no local restaurants open, so I asked about dinner accommodations. Barb responded and said that we could use their fridge and grill. Well we picked up a roasted chicken, vegis, bread in Crescent City on our way to the hotel. We had an impromptu picnic in which they supplied all the dinnerware, glasses, etc. as well as the use of their kitchen! They let us use the kitchen to assemble sandwich and snacks for our day trip as well as for the evening.
The breakfasts were fabulous and the room very large and accommodating. The only two MINOR negatives were the bathroom and wireless. In our room ,there was a claw footed tub with a wrap-around shower curtain and a window on one side. Well, if you didn't have the shower curtain completed wrapped around and the previous person had the shower head pointed for an adult, the water sprayed all over the back of the wall. Not a big deal, but I drenched everything . In addition, the bathroom got a little stuffy. You would have to close the door because you couldn't use the sink without closing the door and given the time of year, you didn't want to open the bathroom window.
The second item was the wireless. I was working on this road trip and the wireless was very weak - not their problem - but the provider/location. I actually got wireless access in my room though was farthest from the access point, but not consistently. If you are just checking email, this won't be a big deal but if you want to do any work it is an issue.
