"West coast trip"

18/07/2018

Usually I have good experiences with Best Western Plus hotels. No so much with this location. I rented two rooms this stay. One had a wet floor, we think from air conditioner. The other room was hot a pond arrival and never cooled down.I also woke up with bug bites.

"A nice surprise on near the water"

16/07/2018

We were pretty impressed with both this hotel and Eureka. What a great town. The hotel is easy to find off the 101 and close to the Old Town and plenty of restaurants. Check-in took a little long, but the service was good. The room, a suite, had my favorite setup with separate sleeping quarters from the main room and bathroom. The furnishings were nice and the room was clean. The beds were some of my favorite on the trip. We lucked out with a first floor room and parked right in front of the door. They have great amenities with a pool that is indoor/outdoor and a nice gym/sauna. This is truly a -Best- Western.

"Enjoyable Stay"

5
15/07/2018

We really enjoyed the layout of our room with the bathroom separated from the main room with a wall. It allowed me to get ready for the day while my family was sleeping. The room was quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was good with many options each day including waffles, bacon, eggs, biscuits and gravy, fruit, breads and pastries, cereal, milk, juices, coffee. The one downside of breakfast was that it was very busy and it was hard to get around and hard for the staff to keep things stocked and cleaned, although they tried very hard. The earlier you can eat, the better.

"Stay away!!!!"

11/07/2018

Avoid this place at all costs. Very dishonest staff. GM is totally rude and very dishonest! We left some clothes there accidentally and have been lied to on multiple occasions. Terrible! 3 weeks later still no clothes. We were first told they couldn't send them we would have to drive up there hundreds of miles to pick them up.

What a nice hotel, the rooms clean, everyone I came in contact with that worked for the hotel was pleasant and helpful. The location is perfect, there are a few restaurants walking distance, great atmosphere

"Great Value & Quiet!"

09/07/2018

We enjoyed the stay here- great breakfast & it was close to walk to shops, restaurants, movies, etc. The jacuzzi suite was spacious & clean. Pet friendly too which was great! We would stay there again for sure :)

"Comfortable"

30/06/2018

Check in was very slow. We had a prepaid voucher which staff did not appear to understand. We were charged for the room then refunded. In fact they also tried to charge us at checkout too. We were given an accessible room for no reason as neither of us are disabled. However, the room was clean and comfortable with an extremely large shower cubicle, to allow for the disability we don't have. Breakfast was very basic but it was included.

"Not the best choice"

2
25/06/2018

I stayed at this hotel for three nights. It is a three story building built in a “U” shape. The rooms on the north side face a mall and Highway 1. The traffic noise in this section of the building is relentless with motorcycles, diesel engine trunks, construction trucks and cars racing up and down the highway. The noise is 24/7. Breakfast is served adjacent to the lobby. The room is too small, and there is not enough staff to handle the many guests who attend the free breakfast. The food is not replenished, and people have to wait or do without. The guest laundry has one washer and drier. The fitness room has one treadmill and elliptical machine. The resistance machine is useless. If you stay here, make sure you do not get a room on the north side of this hotel unless you love noise day and night.

Andrea R, General Manager at Best Western Plus Bayshore Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback and for staying at our hotel. I apologize that we did not exceed your expectations. Our hotel will be undergoing renovations in the near future to correct some of the issues discussed. We will be having a complete remodel of our lobby and breakfast area as well as our fitness center. I am hoping you will give us an opportunity to serve you again in the future when our renovations are completed.

"One of the best in Eureka"

21/06/2018

Second or third time staying here. Compared to other places we've stayed in Eureka it fares well. Clean, good location, reasonable prices. Only down side was a $30 per night charge for our dog. Kind of pricey. Large room, large tv. Relatively quiet although right on 101. A few good restaurants within walking distance. In short, a good stop-over when traveling through.

"Back staying here, as good as last year"

19/06/2018

Friendly front desk, fresh backed cookies in the lobby, large clean rooms with comfortable beds, quiet, good full breakfast. 3 floors with elevator When we are in the area we will be staying here again.

"two nights during a touring holiday."

4
17/06/2018

Groundfloor room near the swimming pool. only noisy during the day, so no problem. car parking was difficult at times as we had chosen a holiday weekend and didn.t realise it! Breakfast was ok but crowded and not enough seating for the number of guestes. Normal for hotels when guest get up and go from early to late morning, but not on holiday weekends!! The room was good size and comfortable and the staff were all very helpful.

"Well maintained hotel, very secure "

5
15/06/2018

We were very pleased staying here. Clean, secure rooms that open into courtyards. Large project. They have microwave in closed cabinet with t.v. atop and it is at end of bed. We opened the cabinet door (microwave door closed) and it smelled of prior heatings. smelly. most secure hotel. You must use your key card to go from the parking lot down a hall to your courtyard. Two restaurants next door and a Kohl's in a shopping center also. Water view of bay. Barbecue place (Shamus) next door delicious. Mexican food also other side and not Tex Mex but was fine. Breakfast free and large room. Very good.

"One night stop"

4
08/06/2018

Stayed here for just 1 night. We were very happy with our room. It was clean and comfortable. The pool area was nice with a very hot spa pool. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. A couple of restaurants are next door to the hotel

"Great place to relax, and spend the night."

4
08/06/2018

First time here, but we always stay at the Best Westerns when doing our road trips. This place is large, but parking is limited and tight. Best for small cars, but there is street parking if you drive a full size truck. The staff is friendly, and the rooms are large, and clean. Breakfast is better than most, and there are places to eat on either side.

"Yosemite and California coast adventure"

01/06/2018

Best western Bayshore inn was our fifth accommodation on a California adventure. The hotel was clean, comfortable and had a nice pool area. The breakfast was very good, very fresh and clean. The staff was nice and helpful.

"Comfortable suite for family overnight "

4
29/05/2018

We came in late and stayed for the night. The room was comfortable and clean. We had a suite, which was nice for 6 of us. Breakfast was very good and the staff were very friendly. The location was ok.

"One night stay"

4
27/05/2018

We stayed one night and it was just what we expected from a BW hotel. The desk staff was helpful and was able to get us in the room an hour or so earlier than usual check in. There are a few restaurants adjacent to the hotel which was convenient. Within walking distance from the elk river. A great place to stay if your ever in the area.

"Don't Hesitate to book a room here"

5
26/05/2018

This is a very clean and modern property in a safe, convenient location. The room was up to date super clean and the king size bed was really comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful and made my stay enjoyable. The free breakfast as with all Best Western properties is identical to every other free breakfast out there, its adequate but nothing spectacular, the lady working in the dining area was very nice. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone who is staying in Eureka and on future trips to the area I will not hesitate to stay here again.

"Nice room but had issues"

3
26/05/2018

We reserved a room since we were traveling with my small pug. We were charges 30 a night. I appreciate the fact that the hotel accepts dogs but there is absolutely no grass nearby. I had to walk behind the hotel on a grass strip behind the hotel. Parking spaces are also very small so if you have a large vehicle you might want to park on the street. Beds were comfortable and the hotel was very quiet. They also have vending machines. The hotel is also close to two restaurants. Both are offering food that is very good quality.

"Super clean and conveniently located"

5
24/05/2018

Located right on Hwy 101, this clean and well amenitied Hotel is quite a treat after some walking and exploring in the Redwood Forest. Comfortable bed and good smelling toiletries were in this room, that came with a microwave and fridge, a nice plus. There was ample parking, an indoor/outdoor pool and two hot tubs. Our room, on the second floor, had a lovely view of the koi pond and a patio door that opened to let the outdoor breeze in. Bonus: full breakfast in the morning as well as got 10% off at both the Mexican and steak place that surrounds the property.

"Wonderful hotel!"

5
23/05/2018

Really nice, clean hotel. Extremely friendly staff. Comfortable beds. Nice hot tub and garden area. Full breakfast in the morning. Two restaurants next door. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

"friendly staff and great breakfast"

21/05/2018

We noticed it was a clean and comfortable room at affordable prices. It was great that there were restaurants nearby within walking distance and the location was just off the 299. Interesting swimming pool!

"Another HAPPY PLACE to stay"

18/05/2018

Another HAPPY PLACE to stay during our trip down to the HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH. We love the beautiful , caring and comfortable hotel and always make it part of our trip to Anaheim.The location is convenient. The flower gardens are so pretty to explore. Room was large, , clran with large tv. Staff very helpful and friendly.

"A Very Nice Best Western"

5
17/05/2018

We just spent two nights at the Best Western Bayshore Inn and enjoyed our stay. This is an outside entry hotel, and although we were on the 1st floor I think there is an elevator. The property is well maintained inside and outside. The location is good with town and many restaurants close by. There are two restaurants next door. You can walk to the bay in a few minutes; the area is fine but I wouldn't suggest walking there at night. We had a king bed room which was very large with a comfortable chair, desk, table and chairs, microwave and refrigerator. The room was nicely decorated, very clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was great with about everything you could want. There was plenty of seating. The check-in process could be improved and our room was not cleaned the second day, but it was satisfactorily handled after notifying the front desk. Overall, everything was just as it should be. We had a good stay and I would recommend this hotel when visiting Eureka.

"Delightful!"

17/05/2018

My wife and I were traveling on a business trip. I booked this room through a large name booking service. We had never stayed here before and had no idea what to expect - other than the description on the website. Well, we were absolutely impressed with all aspects of our stay. Words that come to mind include: clean, well laid out, helpful smiling staff, really nice complimentary breakfast buffet, lots of large parking spaces, geographically located within the city, value for the buck. We can recommend this hotel to you without hesitation.

this hotel is a model of what we expect in a hotel. we were moving daughter after graduation from college. Hotel has two places to eat that give discounts. friendly staff. security checked on my vehicle that was parked on street with trailer.

"Great Stay Near Bay"

5
14/05/2018

I had been to Eureka several months ago, and I stayed at another hotel. While it was nice, it was very noisy from the traffic and there was the usual free, non-healthy breakfast. What attracted me was the location, just a block from the bay with a trail there. The room was quite nice and it was quiet. The breakfast was great: make yourself waffles, eggs, bacon or sausage, plus more. I usually eat out for breakfast as I generally find free breakfasts not worthwhile; I ate here every morning. My only complaint was the WiFi: verrry slooow at times, but decent at times. Overall, I will probably stay here again.

"Great location & value"

4
10/05/2018

Exceeded my expectations. Finally a motel refrig with a good freezer. Accessible TV to use my Firestick. Very comfy bed. Safe parking lot. Quiet even though on main street. Exc. breakfast. I would definitely stay here again!

"Not this best western!"

09/05/2018

I have been to eureka several times at this time of the year for business. This is my first time to try this hotel after several positive reviews and decided to try it out. The hotel rooms are updated with comfortable beds albeit an older built hotel. The breakfast is the usual continental buffet offered in this price range, that I decided to skip it even if I'm booked for a week. It is not a plus. If you're planning to stay here, be aware that the parking space is limited and built for compact cars. There is no physical security except for security camera which is useless unless somebody knows how it is used. The staff are ill equipped to handle situations in the hotel no matter how they liked to help. A non-gues/stranger was able to enter the inner parking lots and after realizing there is no spot available, backed up and hit my parked SUV. He had the audacity to park in a different spot before anybody could confront him, left the perp vehicle for four hours and picked it up at a later time. If he really wasn't a hotel guest, why did management not tow the vehicle out. So the stranger California tag 3JTX680 was able to leave scot free while causing thousands of dollars damage to my vehicle(Range Rover Sport). Manager was not available for contact and left inexperienced staff to fend for themselves. To add insult to injury, I saw a bedbug crawling on the bedsheets. So for this reason avoid at all cost. Will not stay here next month or ever. What a disappointment is an understatement!

"Had a Great Night Here."

09/05/2018

Wanted to get out of the house and decided to take a trip to Eureka because the weather was perfect. When we got to Eureka we used Goggle maps to find a hotel where we could enjoy the sounds of the bay. The bed was easy to sleep in and we had a Jacuzzi tub in the room. Behind the hotel was a steakhouse and a nice walking trail with great views of an estuary with many birds. There were some homeless around doing weird homeless things but the we are coming back to the Best Western Plus Bayshore Inn

"Great place to stay on vacation."

07/05/2018

If you plan on staying at this particular Best Western, you're in for a real treat. Great room, great pool area, everything is clean and neat. My family and I enjoyed this hotel and we will be back. TY.

Beautiful hotel with friendly staff in the middle of a not so beautiful city . Great location and beautiful koi pond . It was dog friendly hotel which was great for us. Two nice restaurants within walking distance of the hotel

"Convience Personafied"

19/04/2018

This hotel is right on Cal State Hi-way 101 in Eureka and next to a mall (how convenient is that?) Stayed 3 nights on third floor (elevator working). The room was clean w/ a wall heat/ac unit you control, view of the garden, Mexican restaurant in front parking lot, a Steak house to the rear and a gas station across the street in front. Breakfast by the lobby consisting of hot scrambled eggs, Bacon, breads, pastries, cereals, fruits, make your own waffles, juices, coffee, tea, milk, yogurt and much more. Service is excellent, price is very affordable, just a very convenient place to stay.

10/04/2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bayshore Inn. The room was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was excellent. Staff was friendly and professional. This will be our go to hotel when we are in the area.

"Comfortable & Affordable"

03/04/2018

Nice room. Comfortable bed; slept just fine. I found the sign above the toilet saying to turn off the water and not flush the toilet again in case of a clog to be a little strange. . . . Enjoyed the complimentary breakfast; hot food, several options. The only negative is the parking lot, parking spaces are small; you feel very "crowded" when you park and the likelihood of a door ding seems very high. I would definitely stay here again.

"Good Sleep for a visit to the Redwoods"

5
02/04/2018

Clean, breakfast, good service, easy to find. We stayed on our way from the Oregon Coast to see the Redwoods, which were amazing! The Redwoods are worth the trip to see, and this hotel is in the center of them, past one grove, and before the Avenue of the Giants.

"Best all around in Eureka"

31/03/2018

Comfortable top notch service . Children loved the pool area. First time swimming while it was raining outside. Breakfast service is great. Stay here each time I visit my grandbabies. Very nice place and great staff to assist your.

"Great hotel!"

26/03/2018

Loved the hotel! Our room was large and very comfortable. Breakfast was really good. The on site Mexican restaurant made our evening. We had a great overall experience and would come back. Our only suggestion would be to establish a pet area as the hotel is pet friendly.

"Excellent stay"

5
26/03/2018

I stayed on the 21st and 22nd. The room was clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. The buffet was the best breakfast buffet I've had at a motel. The staff even tried to accomodate a special religious diet for a guest. I enjoyed relaxing by the koi pond in the courtyard. This will be my first choice next time I'm in Eureka

"Very Nice and comfortable hotel with a bonus of two great resturants adjacent to property!"

25/03/2018

We have stayed at the other Best Western in Eureka and unfortunately, it is a nice hotel, but, it is right in the heart of the unchecked downtown homeless, drug dealing, and prostitution that seems to run rampant in Eureka. The hotel staff at check in were excellent. Rooms were very clean and neat. The hotel has two restaurants adjacent to it, Tres Picosos and Shamus Steak House. Both excellent restaurants! This hotel is within walking distance of the Bayshore mall and Sportsman's Warehouse. Great spot and very nice hotel.

"Very Nice Stay"

20/03/2018

I spent 2 nights here on a business trip in a king room with a fireplace in the Garden area of the hotel. Excellent service from the check in staff, rooms were very clean and neat. The only issue was the little refrigerator was noisy I just turned it off. A bonus is the two excellent restaurants next to the hotel and Sportsman's Warehouse across the street! There is walking trail nearby. This is one of the better hotels in the area!

"Awesome place to stay with dogs!"

5
16/03/2018

Me and my mom and our dog stayed at this hotel in November and loved it. Clean room, nice view, gorgeous property. Right in town and next to a beach. We called the main desk to find a place that we could eat w/ our dog, while they couldn't direct us to many dog-friendly places they did suggest the restaurant right behind the hotel. We ordered there and took it back to our room. Wonderful choice and glad for the decision. They even cooked a plain chicken breast for our dog who has trouble eating his dinner away from home. Awesome Place!

"Pet Friendly - Very Nice"

5
16/03/2018

We had a tough drive to the coast from Central California after having spent a horrible night in Sacramento. Had not called for a reservation and needed a pet friendly room. We were totally taken care of in a wonderful fashion. I just can't say enough about the desk staff. The room was immaculate, the beds were very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was very good with different selection.

"Nice Find ! "

13/03/2018

Renewed our faith in the Best Western chain. Had a lovely room at the back overlooking the Koi Pond Which was quiet. Guest laundry was great. Room was updated and clean. Fireplace was a nice touch although it was a little noisey. Fridge,microwave and coffee maker in the room. Lots of seating with table chairs, easy chair and footstool. Bathroom was spotless.Lots of choice at Breakfast with lots of seating. Staff friendly. Great location. Restaurants and mall within walking distance. Would recommend.

"Pleasantly surprised with the BW Plus Bayshore Inn"

4
11/03/2018

I stayed with my family at the BW Plus Bayshore Inn in early March for an extended weekend getaway in extreme Northern California. The property is adjacent to Broadway/US 101 but most of the rooms are set back from the road (more on this in a minute). It's about a 10 minute drive to Downtown Eureka, and the Bayshore Mall is just next door. I booked a suite with a king bed in the main room and a queen bed in an adjacent room. I was a little concerned when the front desk clerk said the room was on the first floor of the building closest to Broadway/US 101 but it turned out the room was far enough that there wasn't any road noise. I also didn't hear any noise from our neighbors upstairs or next door, but I don't know if that's because the suite was soundproofed well or if we had no neighbors during our stay. The suite itself had plenty of room for the four of us, although I wished there was a comfy chair to sit in while reading. Breakfast was decent--the dining area never got crowded in the two days we ate there--but the coffee (available 24/7 in the lobby) left a lot to be desired. The other main reason I chose this property was because it had an indoor pool. Actually, that's a bit of a misnomer because the pool is one of those indoor/outdoor affairs, and it turned out my kids forgot to pack their swimsuits, so I didn't try it out (that and I didn't feel like crossing the parking lot to get to it when it's 45 degrees outside), but it and the hot tub did look inviting.

"Just a relaxing getaway with husband"

5
02/03/2018

I highly recommend this hotel. The staff was very engaging despite the fact he was very busy. He gave us a very good restaurant recommendation. We had the fireplace spa room with an awesome view of the bay. The room itself was very clean and furnished with plenty of towels and a robe. We definitely plan on coming back.

"Motel with great facilities"

5
20/02/2018

This was a unexpected fun find. Great facilities such as lit spa pool with fountain, pool table, and covered, heated relaxation area. An added bonus was the complimentary stretch limo to take us to destinations within Eureka.

"Very nice, convent hotel "

10/02/2018

My husband and I were on our way through town and decided to stop for dinner and to find a room for the night. We were in the mood for steak and found a great steak house by the water called Shamus T Bones. Right beside the restaurant was this large best western. So we walked over and got a room. We got a king suite facing the ocean. View isn't spectacular since there is some short buildings between the hotel and bay. But the second floor was good. We had an electric fireplace and jacuzzi in the room. Both were very nice. Neat little coy pone in the court yard. Nice breakfast.

"Great Stay!"

5
05/02/2018

Great staff throughout our stay. Room was clean and well kept daily. Breakfast had a large variety and as we were here for 5 days it kept us trying something new every day. The front desk accommodated late arrivals and space for our family to meet. Thank you!

"Great stay !"

05/02/2018

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and the staff was great. The Mexican restaurant in the parking lot was convenient and yummy. The view from my balcony of the koi pond was amazing. The breakfast was fantastic

"Overcharged"

1
03/02/2018

The rooms were okay. We went for a family funeral. I reserved 3 rooms, one of which my sister-in-law paid for and I paid for the other two. When we got home we were charged twice. They said I reserved 3 rooms and my husband reserved two rooms. The two rooms my husband reserved were "no shows." My husband DID NOT reserve two rooms....I made reservations online. My guess is that with all the family calling to make reservations their staff misunderstood and accidentally reserved two rooms in his name. All in all our family reserved 5 rooms. We talked to the manager and the head corporation over and over. Even with all the evidence we submitted (copies of receipts, etc.) they kept saying they had not done anything wrong and refused to take the charges off my account. My bank even placed a three-way call trying to mediate with them. There was no getting through to them--they wouldn't admit they had made a mistake. My bank took the charges off but the motel got paid for two rooms that no one occupied. Why would my husband reserve two rooms no one stayed in?

"Great stay"

23/01/2018

This is the first time we stayed at this Best Western in Eureka. The last time we stayed at the other one down town. That one was more old and kind of dingy. This Inn was bright and nice to be at. The staff in the office was great. Breakfast was much more than we expected. All the food was great and hot. Our room on the third floor was good. It was clean and no complaints. Hotel staff makes a great stay.

"The best"

5
08/01/2018

This was our best experience when staying at a resort. The staff was wonderful and the bed was very comfortable. The room was very clean and taken care of every day. We did not have time to use the pool, hot tub or gym but did check them out. Very nice.

"Even us snobs enjoyed this hotel"

5
08/01/2018

We were traveling from San Diego to northern Oregon for Christmas, dog in tow. I booked this hotel due to the pleasant reviews and it being dog friendly. On the outside I think this hotel is just beautiful. I'm not really sure how to describe it, maybe almost European looking but beautiful. The room was on par with what is Expected from Best Western Plus - clean, large, nice T.V. comfortable beds, etc. The heater worked really well and was exact unlike some places I'v stayed where it gets too warm or too cool. The bathroom was also nice. My biggest negative is there was a smell in our room, my daughter called it mildew but I think it smelled more like somebody was covering up a smell with a spray. We did have a dog friendly room though and the smell wasn't too bad. The best part of our stay was the staff. I really wish I had taken down their names. I had driven 11 hours that day and didn't arrive until 10 p.m. - I was a bit dizzy from the drive and they were just so friendly and nice. I cut my finger trying to take dog food out of a can and one man was so nice he even examined my finger for me. Wish we had arrived sooner and taken advantage of the view and the walk. There was also a Mexican restaurant right next door that was open quite late - that worked out wonderfully. I will definitely use this hotel again. It is obviously run with high standards. Thanks for my stay.

During a car delay on our trip, we had to find a place to stay at the last minute, with our Great Dane. Upon visiting the site and inquiring about a stay with our dog, we were welcomed and offered the best rate available and allowed an early check-in to get settled. The King Bed room was the biggest I have ever seen, and immaculate. This made a bad situation more bearable. The check-in clerk was compassionate and friendly, inquiring about our situation when we saw us at breakfast, showing he truly cared. When we requested a room clean and more pillows during an hour out walking the dog, it was complete upon our return. Although the hotel seemed full, the morning breakfast area was very quiet and quite stocked (GREAT coffee, scrambled eggs, meat, cereals, oatmeal, breads, waffle station, etc). There was a bit of noise late into the evening, but it was overall quiet the rest of the evening and morning. I used the fitness room to get in a walk on the treadmill - room is small and quiet with a TV, treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike and weight training machine. There is also a coin operated washer & dryer on the premises (dryer takes a VERY long time to dry). Less than a block behind the hotel is a walking/biking path along Humbolt Bay which is very nice, quiet and peaceful. I would stay at this hotel again if in the area.

Walked into a nice lobby to one employee, who was very nice and handling people and phone calls professionally and efficiently! Parked close to elevator and went to our garden-view room with a fireplace. Nice room! Vanity outside toilet/shower, which is nice when you have teens who take forever in the shower. Pump shampoo, etc in the shower, so you can use what you need without fighting all those plastic bottles. Two restaurants nearby that offer 10% off for hotel guests. We ate at the Mexican restaurant and ate well for less than 30 dollars for 3 people. Walked back through the pool/exercise room/business center area to print off boarding passes. Nice, safe place. Good selection of breakfast items and lots of tables to sit at. Definitely will return if in the area!

Nice place to stay in Eureka right in the middle of anything you need be it personal or leisure items....Nice Mexican restaurant next door and also a BBQ Steakhouse behind....Easy access to all local attractions such as old town.....

Super clean room, Koi pond outside of our room, jacuzzi tub and fireplace in room...The staff was very friendly and accommodating...Our pets traveled with us on this journey, and were welcomed at this hotel...The place was quite, and we felt very secure in our rooms... we will be staying here on our next trip to the coast...

"Huge surprise and disappointment after reading other reviews "

1
30/12/2017

We planned a last minute trip to the coast and booked here after reading rave reviews of how clean it was. We were extremely disappointed to find it so incredibly dated and our rooms with stains everywhere - on the carpet and on the chair. The safety latch on the door is missing a screw so it is hanging broken. When we pulled back the sheets and moved pillows there were several clumps of hair that did not belong to us. We are typically pretty easy to please and don't require much - but cleanliness is always important. When they are overlooking such glaringly obvious things it's gross to think about what else is being missed. Oh yeah, and we booked for garden view and didn't get it. We paid and now feel stuck here for 3 nights - I'm grossed out to get in the bed and, though we won't spend much time except at night in the hotel, wish we had somewhere else to go. During the day when we were out and about from 10 am to 4 pm, nobody made it to our room to empty the garbages, etc. none of this stuff is a big deal on its own, but when it all piles on each other it is crummy. When we called to let the desk know of our complaints they discounted our rate about $10 per night which was about 10%.

Chandler H, Manager at Best Western Plus Bayshore Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us. We apologize for the unsatisfactory conditions and will address these with our staff. As you read in our reviews, this is not a normal occurrence.

I loved the room with hot tub and near the garden area it was very beautiful and the room was very big and nice I really enjoyed it all. I would definitely stay here again. And got a nice view on the balcony.

"Very good Transit place"

28/12/2017

Best Western is a good International chain hotel. Rooms in Best western hotel in USA are fairly bigger in size. This hotel is equipped with reasonably good Sized rooms as compared to Few Best western hotels in Europe.This hotel had a big premises. Front Desk and Restaurant for Breakfast are separately located.This has good Vehical parking place.Breakfast is available on Complimentary basis.The area is surrounded by few shopping malls.This caters all the guest needs. Not a very great hotel.Buta very good Transit hotel. Breakfast is well spread. Front Desk is friendly. Overnight stay does not allow me to write more details.This has SPA and business centre too.But we enjoyed our stay after Avery long drive from California.

We love staying at Best Western Plus hotels because their beds are so comfortable. Bayshore Inn was no exception. But the positive comments start there. We were given the handicap room ( not sure why) which was on ground level by the ice machine. We heard every footstep and rolling suitcase that was anywhere near our room. Not the way I wanted to be woken up. We got a good price so I guess you get what you pay for.

27/12/2017

One of our favorites. Clean rooms, good breakfast, very nice & helpful staff. New Mexican restaurant next door which is authentic and they offer a 10% discount for BW guests. Walking distance to Bayshore Mall. We really like the rooms with the fireplace and views to the garden & koi pond.

Great value for the money. Our first night there was a plumbing problem in the morning. But the hotel staff made it better by giving us a upgraded room for the following night for less money. Make sure you check out the fish pond.

"Amazing room for the rate"

26/12/2017

Room was the most incredible I've ever had for the rate going - spacious (gigantic actually), with an in-room jacuzzi tub, incredibly reasonable, and dog-friendly! Nice place overall, easy to get to, and very clean.

While passing through Eureka, bring my daughter home from college for Christmas break, we stayed the night, Too bad we had been driving all day and were tired. We would have liked to spend some time in the indoor/outdoor pool. It looked clean and refreshing. Instead, we enjoyed our beds and slept quite comfortable. Am breakfast was ready for us and very good. Nice selection of food to choose from.

Nice property, will we stay next time thur. It's close to shopping and there is plenty of different food choices to pick from. We ate at the steak house Shaemus T and it was good. We ate at the breakfast at hotel it was also good. Garden area is beautiful we've stayed several different times of the year and garden area always beautiful.

17/12/2017

I always stay at this Best Western when I go through Eureka. It's better than the other one closer to downtown. I had booked a room and forgot to take location of the room into account. I called on the day of arrival and they changed the room for us. Great customer service!

"VERY dog friendly"

Great price, great rooms and excellent staff. Went out of their way to make us and our new dog we adopted in that town welcomed. Beds were very comfortable. Couldn't get hooked up to the internet and the staff had me up and running in a minute. I can't say enough good things about their staff. Very friendly people, including the cleaning crew. People, please remember to leave a tip for the cleaners. They appreciate.

I stayed here for a couple nights while in the area for business, and it was great. Check-in was quick & friendly, very welcoming lobby & greeting from the desk worker. Location is great, right next to a decent size mall/shopping center, also near restaurants. Good breakfast at hotel as well. Room was clean and well kept. Nice balcony & very comfy bed as well. All in all, I will always stay here in the future

Hubby and I have stayed at this property numerous times on our way to and from California. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. 2 restaurants are located within steps of the property and are both good. We prefer Shamus! Few changes have occurred since our last stay, Bacon is no longer served for breakfast and the coffee bar in the Garden view area has been eliminated. Hopefully they will both return before our next stay.

20/11/2017

It has been several years since we stayed in Eureka and the last time the Bayshore did't accept pets, they do now! Most hotel/motels that accept pets reserve rooms that are stuck in the back without a view and in rooms that are badly in need of upgrading. In other words, pet owners are religated to second class customers. Not so this Best Western. It was a stormy night and we had been traveling up the California coast and we stopped here. Our room had a fireplace and was very nice and updated. The office staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The parking is convenient and well-lit at night. The rooms are set back far enough from the highway to be isolated from highway traffic noise. Thanks Bayshore for treating us as valued customers who travel with well-behaved pets. We will return.

"Clean & Convenient"

20/11/2017

Met all expectations. The receptionist at check-in was pleasant and the process was quick. Nice spa facilities. Convenient to local amenities. Found a great local restaurant, The Brick & Fire is just 15 minutes from the hotel and worth the stop.

In general this is a decent hotel. Good breakfast. Our only issues where a missed room cleaning one day and the fact that we were next to the pool, vending machines and stairs so a little noisy. Avoid that location.

"Comfortable hotel on outskirts of Eureka"

16/11/2017

Big hotel on outskirts of Eureka. Nearby is steakhouse were hotel guests get 10% discount. We had big room on 2nd floor. On Saturday hotel was very full, was difficult to find free place in parking. Breakfast is served in reception building and has wide choice of food- you even can cook waffles yourself.

"This is a great place to stay in Eureka!"

08/11/2017

I stay at this hotel ALL THE TIME for work. Staff is super nice and the best thing about it is you can get rooms in the very back that have a spectacular view of the Humboldt Bay. Great location for exploring all the great beaches and rain forest areas and GIANT Redwood trees of the Humboldt area forests. And there's a huge mall right next door and a decent bar and grill right in back of it. So good location. They allow pets, too. But unfortunately not in the rooms with views.

"Very pleasant and comfortable."

07/11/2017

This facility offered us a good sized, clean, well appointed room, and an excellent (included) full breakfast. The front desk was very helpful answering the usual "road trip" questions we asked. We'll stay here again if we come that way.

"Wait For New Management"

06/11/2017

Definitely no longer a Best Western "Plus" property. Used to be a great hotel but looks like new owner clearly has down graded everything to help pay for the purchase. Missing furniture, very slow internet, limited staffing, non-working appliances, etc., etc. Will not come back.

"Nice comfy rooms"

05/11/2017

Headed out for a road trip and on our way home we decided to stay the night here. Spacious rooms with a fridge/freezer combo, TV and microwave make for a nice stay. Comfy beds with lots of pillows. Friendly staff with a continental breakfast

04/11/2017

I was on my way back to California from Washington when my family was evacuated during the Northern CA fires. They couldn't find hotel rooms anywhere near our home, so I told them to meet me at the BW, Plus Bayshore Inn. We were all stressed to the max and the rooms we got in the back section of this hotel were exactly what we needed. Very clean, large, comfortable and quiet. The Staff could not have been more accommodating. Loved the Koi pond and the garden. And, there as a very nice steak house/bar right behind the hotel, just a quick walk across the parking lot. Incredible hotel for the money. I'd certainly stay here again.

what a great experience will definitely be back even the hot tub was warm (duh) and clean. restaurant was very pleasant this trip involved one member of our party that needed some handicap help. the property went above and beyond to accommodate. we really enjoyed everything about this property and the service

"Good Choice in Eureka"

4
29/10/2017

We enjoyed a pleasant 2 night stay at this hotel. There isn't really a lot to comment on as everything about the hotel was fine and we have no real criticism of the hotel itself. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. Staff were friendly and efficient, and breakfast, while not extensive, was satisfactory. Our only criticism relating to our stay was the noise from a group of bikers staying there at the same time, who seemed to have to keep playing with their bikes and revving the engines. This of course is not the fault of the hotel although unlike many in the UK (and 1 in the US in which we stayed) there is no reminder to guests to consider others, but this hotel, in common with most others in America in which we stayed, does not seem to have adequate insulation or sound-proofing. Overall, however, our experience was positive and we would happily stay again if wanting a hotel in the area.

"Well worth staying at."

26/10/2017

Can't say anything negative about this stay. We belong to Best Western Rewards and are well taken care of at these Resorts. The in-house breakfast is a big plus during our travels. It save us valuable time to not have to leave the property to have breakfast. The quality of food and choices are great and the dining room is always kept very clean and bused. We will always recommend Best Western Hotels and Resorts for you lodging.

25/10/2017

The guy at the desk was extremely friendly and helpful when we checked in. He told us about an extra discount available with our Harley Davidson credit card. We also got a discount at a near by steakhouse. Shamus T. Bones was very good by the way. The handicapped room had a very large bathroom with a huge walk-in shower. But, just because a hotel is pet friendly there should NOT be dog hair on the beds. Housekeeping should do a better job and keep their hair tied back. Rolling back the sheets and finding long black hair is really not inviting. There were thorns in the carpet and no elevator. Would not stay here again.

"Great pool area"

24/10/2017

Very friendly front desk staff. Quick check in. Laundry facilities are available. Pool and hot tub area were great. Rooms were spacious, clean and updated. There is a restaurant you can walk to just behind this facility that has a varied menu for food and drinks. Breakfast offers both hot and cold choices.

17/10/2017

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel was clean, along with the rooms. The garden area with the koi poind is a very nice touch. We had a king bed with Jacuzzi tub, this room was large and spacious. Would definitely stay here again. Gave 4 on sleep quality because pillows were a little to thick and firm for my taste.

"Great stay going thru Redwoods"

17/10/2017

We were traveling from Oregon down the coast to see the Redwoods. Went thru the State and National areas and decided that BW Plus in Eureka would be an ideal location for a nights stay before continuing on to Humbolt Redwoods. Got great tips from the front desk staff. Had choice of USA today and/or local paper. Nice touch. Breakfast was above normal compared to other BW's. The restaurant behind was very good and hotel guests get a discount.

I was travelling with my dog, and usually I have to put up with pretty bad hotel rooms; but not here! The rooms are tastefully decorated, carpetted floors so my dog can actually walk without slipping around. Super comfy bed and the hotel staff was very friendly and competent. Would definitely recommend!

Stayed here on my trip to Redwood. It's convenientlt located right by Route 101 and has easy access to restaurants. Good-looking hotel and nice room with a very comfortable mattress. Courteous and efficient front desk staff. I'm already planning on returning to this area and will stay here again. My only complaint was that while in the shower the water drained really slow.

Large well decorated room plus a comfort buffet breakfast make this hotel a good choice in Eureka. Just on highway US 101, and near a couple of restaurants make the location attractive. The chick-in and out were a breath with their helpful staff. Free and secure car park just under the rooms was attractive. Like many other hotels, the in-room safety box is missing, but the HBO channels made my night comfortable.

We stopped at Eureka for one evening and had pre-booked a room at this hotel. Upon arrival we had been asked why we were travelling and when we mentioned it was for a honeymoon the hotel kindly, and without hesitation upgraded our room. The lady on reception was so nice! Our room was immaculate and the upgrade had provided us with a Jacuzzi bath tub and a large bed. The view from the room wasn't amazing but that was fine with us. The garden area within the hotel was relaxing with the large coi carp fish in the garden pond. The bed was very comfortable and the hotel service was great. Breakfast in the morning was simple with oatmeal, eggs, some sausages and turkey bacon and waffles. The staff on reception on our arrival made this hotel what it is. 5 out of 5.

This is a nice hotel and the staff is very pleasant it is a very busy hotel and sits next to the Mall. The hotel is Dog friendly but does not have a designated dog area so you have to walk around the area which at night gets a bit dark as there are not many street lights in the town.

Hands down, best motel for overnight stay in Eureka area. This has been our "go to" motel for over 20 years. Rooms are clean, property is well maintained, staff is friendly. Always enjoy the Koi pond!

"Nice hotel, but noisy."

21/09/2017

We spent a couple of nights here. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Staff were pleasant and courteous. However, we encountered a problem with noise and fumes that makes the hotel hard to recommend. Firstly, Broadway is actually the main Highway 101 running through Eureka, so there is continual background traffic noise. Of greater concern is that the hotel us used as an overnight stop by truckers who park their vehicles in the side road immediately outside the hotel. (See photos) They leave their engines running for a long while after pulling up in the evening, then again in the early morning before driving off. The noise and smell of diesel fumes was very unpleasant and made it impossible to leave our window open. It was unpleasant for us in an upper floor room, but for anyone staying in a ground floor room below us, this must be really intolerable.

"Comfortable stay"

20/09/2017

A very nice stay. Hotel was clean, room was standard no problems. A nice variety at the breakfast buffet Checkin and checkout was easy . Koi pond in the back. Hotel is next to a mall. Marie Calenders restaurant is now closed, I was there their last night.

The room was clean and comfortable. They made chocolate chip cookies in the afternoon. They offered a large selection of options for breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful. I did not have an opportunity to use the pool or spa.

"Clean and comfortable."

3
19/09/2017

I will start by noting that we rode right past the place without noticing it. It is tucked away behind a Marie Callender's restaurant and, even though it is a large hotel complex, it was rather well hidden. We were looking for the familiar big, blue "Best Western" sign, but that has been replaced with a less-conspicuous "bw" signage that we did not recognize. The hotel is conveniently located to Fort Humboldt State Park, which was my reason for choosing it. Thus, on location I will give it good marks. The room was spacious, clean, and mostly quiet. It was typical of Best Westerns in the United States: efficient and boringly the same. The included breakfast was decent, but also enjoyed the sameness of chain motel flavor. Nice for business travel, but not really the stuff of vacation travel.

"First Half Of Stay At B.W. Bayshore Was Awesome, Second Half Not So Much."

05/09/2017

When we arrived on Saturday the staff were very helpful and so friendly. When we left on Sunday it was completely opposite. Different staff for sure. This B.W. has beautiful grounds and the rooms have nice decor. The staff were awesome and let us check in early due to the room being ready. Parking can be tight if you you have an oversized vehicle. It's wonderful that they have clean and speedy elevators. We were on the third floor down at the end (rm.322) with a slight bay view. It was very private and quiet. Our only problem was we wanted a room with a fireplace and we got one, but one that wouldn't turn on and work. The water pressure was great in the shower/tub, but there was a huge problem with the water not draining from the tub. When we went to check out and tell the front desk about our two problems, she really didn't seem to care. Her attitude was nothing like the people we encountered the day before. It's a shame because the last impression is what we were left with. Thank goodness the first day went so well. I will definitely give them a second chance when we go to visit family again. Hopefully that review will be perfect.

"As Nice as Always.......however..."

04/09/2017

With family in Eureka, this Best Western Plus is our Go-To Hotel. We just love it. It's clean, and we usually like to stay in the Garden Area, which is more quiet, and they really keep the garden and koi pond in nice shape. The rooms are clean, and the beds are comfy. The staff top to bottom is wonderful. Here's the however, and if you've never stayed here, its meaningless, but I guess this will be directed at ownership. Allow my review to have a dual purpose. One of the greatest amenities this hotel had, was they would provide a cart of pastries and fresh coffee to the garden area, so we wouldnt have to trek all the way to lobby early in the am for that first coffee. This little perk was one of the reasons for our continued returns. It was quite disappointing to awake on our first morning to find that this no longer exists :( :( Apparently, this went away with new ownership a few months back. As a regular traveler, let me express some words of wisdom to the new owners. Please realize what you bought into was a gem here in Eureka. "If it aint broke, dont fix it." Because if you start with doing stuff like that, it tends to go downhill from there. I've seen it happen countless times.....business decisions loom over customer service. Sorry, rant over. You have a beautiful place here, and it's my favorite BW, ever.

On our way back from a trip north, we spent a couple of nights in Eureka. After staying at other hotels, it was very refreshing to stay at this Best Western. Super clean rooms, friendly staff, all amenities and walking distance from great restaurants

"Nice but lack of service disappointing"

27/08/2017

The property is nice and has some good amenities. Our stay took a serious downturn when we returned to the room after a day in the Redwoods to find the room had not been touched. My wife was certainly not happy when she opened the door and say the bed a mess. She had wanted a shower but with no clean towels had to make a trip to the office instead. Four days later I have yet to see the promised compensation. The room was nice except for the seafoam green paint on the walls, doors, & trim was a bit overwhelming. On the plus side the internet was great speed, the laundry room was a nice feature, and the garden is nicely taken care of.

Because of 2 local fires and evacuations all hotels were totally booked. We were traveling from Central Oregon (eclipse) to Southern California and had been driving for 12 hours. BW Bayshore had a group of 16 cancel. The host called all the other local hotels to let them know they had available rooms. This was a lifesaver. Also saved a pet friendly room. GREAT SERVICE.

"decent rooms, good amenities, easy access"

24/08/2017

Decent rooms and a pretty good selection of amenities at this hotel. Much easier access than the one closer in town. Ask for more info on the garden area and the pool - they didn't offer it at check in. Microwave and fridge in room is nice. Bathroom layout was spacious and wonderful. Water pressure great but the toiletries dispenser was hard to use. Our room had a tiny balcony with a partial view of the bay. Marie Callendar's offers a discount but be warned that they close up pretty early, as does most of Eureka, at least that part of town. Parking was a little tricky later in the evening. There is a nice casino about ten miles down the road, and shops just across the road if you need to stock up while you are in town.

Seems to be about the nicest hotel in the area. Quiet and clean room. Breakfast is a little more upscale than the regular chains. Convenient walk to a few restaurants. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Near the shoreline. Three stories high, but has elevator. Good parking area.

Good location and easy to find. Clean room and bed slept really well. Parking was tight. There were two restaurants on site and I was told they were good. Breakfast was good, regular stuff but enough to get you down the road. I would stay here again for sure.

Great hotel to stay at in Eureka, from our first trip to multiple trips through the year have been great. Great staff and friendly. The only thing I would say negative is their TV picture quality is terrible, it seems the settings are off. The picture is to dark and guest don't have the ability to change the setting. I strongly suggest to brighten the picture, I hope management takes notice, this is not a deal breaker just a inconvenience when retiring at night and want to watch tv before bedtime. This issues was also in another room, fyi.

Hotel is dated but clean. Bed was ok, but pillows were tiny and lumpy. No bar soap and body wash dispenser empty. Hot breakfast was pretty good. Great coffee. Don't get sucked into using the 20% off at Marie Callendar's...food was not good.

OK place. Our room had some problems which might be unique to our room. Plusses: We had a ADA 1st floor king room. It had a larger than average fridge with a big freezer section. It was pretty well lit, with a reasonably number of electrical outlets. The main problem was the work table which was poorly lit and had no available outlets. I ended up moving it so I could access an electrical outlet and get some better lighting. I wish all BWs served a breakfast like this place. Hot oatmeal with conditments like raisins, cranberries, etc. They had two waffle irons with fruit compote including strawberries. They also had raisin bread.

Loved staying at this hotel! The employees are very professional and helpful, the grounds are gorgeous, the room VERY comfortable and quiet, and the breakfast was great! We will definitely be staying here in the future. It is located directly south of the Bayshore Mall, so very easy to just walk to Kohl's or any other store there. I would make plans to stay here if you are ever in Eureka!

2 night stop over to see the redwoods. Discount at 2 close by restaurants. Pool and elevator was being repaired while we stayed there, but they also have a nice hot tub. Breakfast is a little above average and the staff is very nice. Came from a motel 6 hotel and the difference was tangible. Bigger room with a newer interior and furniture. An overall higher standard. We ate at marie Callenders, which was good, and with the 20% discount from the hotel a very inexpensive dinner.

We had to cancel a booking here and did so more than a week before the stay (could cancel up to 24 hours before). The hotel charged us anyway for the first night! They wont refund because they say that they never received the cancellation. Avoid this place!

"new management cutting corners to make more profit"

2
02/08/2017

Best Western Bayshore mall is under new management and I feel that they are cutting lots of corners not for the better but for the worse and in their eyes it's probably for the better more profit. I don't mind paying the extra for good service and care. Rooms where always very nice and well taken care of always clean nice clean sheets. Unfortunately the room we had had very faded and yellowing sheets and bedspread they did not feel crisp and fresh like it in the past. No bottle water in the room. Overall not what I have experienced in the past. In the past under the old management in the gated court area of the hotel downstairs there was coffee 24 hours a day plus in the morning there was fresh fruits, pastries bagels and bread also toaster and cream cheese. So you didn't have to walk all the way over to the main hotel for breakfast if you didn't want. Speaking of breakfast the menu has changed drastically before you be biscuits and gravy,eggs, bacon,sausage and diced potatoes also the go along with this you to get boiled eggs different types of bread store bagels make your own waffles, yogurts, fresh fruit and I'm sure I forgot a few things. Both mornings when we went down the breakfast there is no place to sit we ended up waiting 15 to 30 minutes each one they were running out of different items they weren't checking in the guess what have to take the item to the kitchen to get it replaced. Unfortunately the overall stay was below stand reason me check into the Travelodge that's brand new down the road and next time unfortunately. Is closing getaway weekend for my wife and I that we haven't had in quite a long time and a disappointing.

We were in Eureka for a high school class reunion and stayed at the Bayshore Best Western. The rooms were very clean and had nice amenities. The bed was very comfortable and free WiFi. A mini breakfast is served daily and there is a Marie Callendar's next door. A nice stop over place if you are in Eureka. Would recommend.

31/07/2017

Nice hotel in walking distance to a beach. However, the area gets a little sketchy near dusk and early morning. There is a Shamus T Bones Steakhouse out back and a Marie Callendar's out front. The discount for both is if you eat in (Just FYI). After a long drive from Klameth, it was nice to be able to walk over for dinner. Breakfast at the hotel is your standard fair. Staff in reception was very nice! A bit expensive for a room on the parking lot on the ground floor and fairly noisy. Motorcycles starting their trip at 7am revving up for a day of fun.

This is a really nice classic older property. I thought I had been time warped back to the 1970's, but it was fun. The pool was great, the room was nice and big with a corner bathtub, and for an overnighter it was just fine. Breakfast was really good. Good value, and back on the road.

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel in Eureka. It was very clean and my suite was spacious and comfortable. The décor was nice and the room was one of the quietest rooms I experienced during this journey, The hotel is huge -long, 3 stories divided into various units, I stayed in the Garden section which had a very attractive and thriving garden of trees and flowers near the pool. Lovely.

This was a very well kept up Hotel. Staff was pleasant and more than helpful. The room was very comfortable and everything worked well. Enjoyed the Fireplace too! Close to many shops. Marie Calender's is on property so if you need a short walk across the parking lot to eat it right there. Close to many things to do in the area. The morning Breakfast was outstanding with many choices - pancakes, scrambled eggs, cereal cold or hot, juices, coffee, water, fruit and much more.

"Decent room, a few issues!"

17/07/2017

We stayed here one night on our road trip up the California and Oregon Coast. We arrived around 7:30 pm, so it was literally a place to sleep and eat dinner/breakfast and my daughter hoped to swim! Upon check in I saw the pool was out of order:( That was a rough blow for little girl who had hoped to swim after a 7 hour car ride. The room itself was good, the continental breakfast was decent too! Other than the pool issue our only other complaint was the Marie Callendar's next door had horrible service and just so-so food! Thankfully we got 20% off for staying next door. We did notice a lot of sketchy people wallking through the parking lot and surrounding areas. I'm not sure we'd stay here again but for our one night it was adequate.

"Good base for exploring the Redwoods"

10/07/2017

A good BW hotel, with an excellent room for a family of 5 and a breakfast including some hot dishes and not just the muffins and cereals. We also liked the pool and hot tub a lot, as well as the coffee in the reception area where we could pick up hot drinks. The "fitness room" could have used some more equipment. Location is really good for exploring national parks both north of and south of Eureka. We'd stay here again if we come back to this area.

"A cut above for a Best Western"

08/07/2017

This is a Best Western Plus so is a cut above the regular Best Westerns. Close to shopping in the newer part of town (that's probably good in Eureka, it's not a good idea to hang around old town too much). Clean and generally quiet location on Hwy 101. Parking is tight with many compact spaces and a lot that can be hard to negotiate in a large SUV or truck. Average restaurants close by.

06/07/2017

The room was fine, except that we paid to have a fireplace because I love the ambiance after a long day of traveling. But it turns out they have it connected to the thermostat, so you can only see the flames if you turn on the wall heater. The room was already hot, so we did not want to turn on the heater, ergo no pretty flames. Since it is one of those gas fireplaces that doesn't give off real heat, I felt jipped. Decent breakfast was included.

This is a large facility with several wings each having three floors. Our room was on the third floor of the wing facing Humboldt Bay and the Pacific Ocean beyond. We also had a great view of the parking lot and Shamus T Bones restaurant. The room was well appointed and even had a gas fireplace, which wasn't needed despite the chilly rain in mid-June. The interior courtyard has a Koi pond and several waterfalls that lend a relaxing atmosphere to the facility. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. We really liked our brief visit to Eureka and the North Coast and want to return for an extended visit.

Never disappointed. We have stayed here many times and we have never been disappointed. The staff is wonderful and the rooms are clean and nice. The pool is set up well for families and you can keep an eye on the little nippers while you are in the jacuzzi. Sadly, there is a lot of homelessness in the area but that does not seem to affect the safety and cleanliness of the property. I would recommend the Best Western Bay Shore Inn for families.

Stayed in this on 06/23 and 06/24 . Booked a room that sleeps 6 and very impressed by the room they provided us. A room with 2 double beds and an attached room with 1 double bed. Total 3 double beds. Thank you Best Western Plus Bayshore Inn. You are the best. Had a very comfortable stay. The breakfast was superb with wide verity of choice and hot and cold options, the milk, coffee, breads, eggs were being filled up immediately with fresh and hot food. Never ran out of anything. The Pool was perfect for kids to unwind and relax after a tiring day in the redwoods. With this awesome experience I booked a third night in Best Western also on 06/25 in BW Santa Rosa and I was not disappointed. They did not had an attached room but they provided us a room with 2 double beds and a sofa bed. and not to forget , the Free Wifi with very good speed was a Plus. So cool.

There are 6 of us and we're usually squished into a tiny space with a pull-out couch.

It was also pretty quiet, which is really important for me -- I find it very hard to fall asleep if there is a lot of noise.

Photos were a bit misleading, in the photos it looked lush and like a resort to us, but instead it was to us just an average BW, which isn't a bad thing! Staff was super friendly and helpful. There were signs posted everywhere "no trespassing/guests only" etc and we were advised that a security person at night "would keep an eye on our car". We appreciated that; it let us to believe they had had issues, but we didn't have any. Room was adequate. Clean. Breakfast was good. It just wasn't as resort-like as the photos lead us to believe; rather, it was an average Best Western, which we often stay at across the country.

10/06/2017

After a long journey this was the ideal location to spend a couple of nights, on our way north. Spread over three floors, with elevator access, we discovered an oasis of tranquility, in which to rest and explore. Just south of the old town, it is conveniently located at the side of highway 101. Reception was simple and very welcoming. We were allocated a room in a quiet corner on the inside of the complex. Our vehicle was parked in a convenient spot, adjacent to the rear entry facility. Once parked up everything we needed was within reach. On our middle day we were able to get straight onto a walking trail, which took us along the edge of the bay towards the old town. Whilst there is no restaurant or bar here, there are two eateries, one within the complex called Marie Callender's Restaurant (keep up the good work Michael!) and the Shamus T-Bones Steak House on the other boundary. You cannot fail to find something to suit your taste here. I have to say that the quality of all the food we had was excellent - especially the home made pies. If you want to stay in your room, the restaurant, we discovered, will bring your food to you. Our room had everything you might want, including an effective electric log effect fire. With fridge, microwave and coffee making, the room can be a base for longer than a couple of nights. You do not really have to make your own coffee though, as it is available on a complimentary basis 24/7. Breakfast, with ample choices, including gluten free bread, had a wide selection of hot and cold dishes on offer. The facilities here are excellent, with an indoor pool, outdoor spa, laundry, large screen TV, air conditioning, etc. What caught the attention of most guests is the well maintained carp pool in the central garden, which for the children, held them fascinated. We had a small problem with our electronic room key. Not only was it solved without a drama but the staff checked several times, during that evening, to ensure that all was well. Where else can you find such care and attention? Return here? Of course - tomorrow!

04/06/2017

The rooms are in desperate need of updating. Even with all the lights on the rooms are very, very dark. The toilet overflowed and it just seemed dirty in the bathroom. When I tol the staff about the toilet overflowing there was not much sympathy that we had to clean up all the water. The rooms were noisy and we could easily hear the people walking in the floor above us. Just not a pleasant stay except the mostly friendly front desk staff and the great breakfast that is included. Disappointed.

My husband and I stayed at this lovely hotel a couple months ago and found the location just perfect and our room very spacious and clean. Worth every penny and will gladly stay here again. Recently my husband booked another stay here while we willl be on our way to Napa, California. Unfortunately, we will not need this reservation as we decided to fly, but my husband booked the room as a prepaid non-cancel at a lower rate so we paid for it already. We are hoping to get a full refund or voucher for another date so I called Best Western Rewards Club (which we recently joined) and was put thru to customer service where I talked to Taylor. He was unable to cancel our reservation but offered to submit a request to the hotel on our behalf to get it cancelled. Not sure if it will work but Taylor was very kind and understood our problem immediately. Thank you Taylor for your great service at Best Western customer service. Hope it works!

What a great stay we had at this Inn. Everyone friendly and courteous. Rooms cleaned daily and in good order. Staff are continually working during the day to upkeep the property. Breakfast offerings were substantial and good tasting. The location was perfect! Located between Marie Callenders (Yes, excellent pies!) and Shamus 1 Bones Steakhouse (Great steak! Great Ribs!). Very close to a walk along the bay each day. Eureka Zoo visited was right in town and interesting. If you go be sure to drive around town and enjoy the architecture -- plenty of victorian homes. Thanks to everyone there for a wonderful stay way beyond our expectations.

"Quiet stop on CA coast"

31/05/2017

Coming from the south US 101 this is one of the first hotels in Eureka. It's next to a mall, but the area seemed very depressed and there were many RVs parked on the street next to the hotel that people live in, so there was some trash on the roadway around those RVs. We were asked for our car tag info so security would know if we were supposed to be there that night. Didn't make us feel safe. There is a lack of parking here and it dead ends on each row, so difficult to park, and they ask you not to back in. The room smelled funky. Not moldy, but just funky. Bed was comfy enough. Shower has soap dispensers, heat lamp. Tv, mini fridge, microwave. The room seemed wider than many hotels, so it wasn't crowded in the room at all with 4 people. It was dark. Even with all lights on, it was dark in the room. I felt like I was staying somewhere cheap, but the price here wasn't cheap. Breakfast requires a card showing how many can eat. We were never asked to show this card. Eggs, biscuits, gravy, bacon, oatmeal, cereals, coffee, juices, and waffles. Had another room with more seating, so at first I thought it was too small, but the extra seating space was nice. Food was fine. Hotel said restaurant on site would discount 20 %. We only went there for dessert and they wouldn't give the discount on pie they said. The pool is indoor/outdoor. It was cold/rainy this day, so we didn't get in. It was busy anyway. There is another BW just a little bit into the city as well. Overall this place was quiet by 10pm. It was busy, but quiet. If I were traveling in the area again I might stay here, but I might try some place else. This was just okay.

We stayed at this hotel on our road trip from WA to CA to attend a week long dog show in Pomona. The Best Western was okay us with decent rooms and the restaurant behind the hotel, Shamus Steakhouse was excellent! The surrounding area is infested with dopers and the parking area overlooking the ocean behind the hotel was filled with very suspicious people that made us so uncomfortable we left immediately. The entire town was very unimpressive and not worth stopping at.

Having 3 beds when traveling with family is unheard of in most hotels. Beds were comfortable and rooms clean. Great Breakfast and good restaurants Location was near enough to everything yet away enough to be quite.

Who knew that behind this busy roadside hotel I would find a beautiful walking path. The room was super comfortable. The breakfast was great; eggs, bacon, waffles, biscuits, etc. But the really cool surprising thing was the beautiful path a block behind the hotel that went along the water.

A discount on dinner locally, an amazing and comfortable room. The best breakfast and the burritos were awesome! By far this is the place to stop! Love that it's back off the road a bit. The staff is awesome and the property is well cared for! The bed was comfortable!

This hotel has a koi pond that is also home to very loud frogs. I love nature sounds so it didn't bother me (I was also exhausted after traveling 12 hours). But if you're looking for a quiet nights sleep, ask for a room away from the pond. Also, the door in my room needed to be sealed better. I could hear wind whistling through quite loudly. Other than that, my room was clean and it had a few little extras (q-tips, cotton balls, shower cap) that I haven't seen at other BW's. Overall I had a very nice stay

"First Class !"

04/05/2017

Everything about this best western is first class and our visit started and ended with excellent service of Simone. We arrived a week late because of a Landslide on 101 that necessitated a re-route and had to stay an extra night until the slide was cleared. Simone sorted everything out for us and our stay was a good one. The complimentary breakfast is one of the best we had on our 2 week trip and with 2 on-site restaurants that offer discounts to Best Western guests we couldnt have asked for more. The hotel is a bit out of Eureka "town" but there is a mall right next door and a regular bus service to town if you dont have your own transport. If we are ever lucky enough to be back this way again we will certainly stay here and thats just for the complimentary cookies !

As always booked my room at the last minute and was taken care of and my rewards status got me an upgrade. I was taken care of by Carlee who welcomes me ever time and along with the other staff attends to all my hotel needs. Friendly staff and top notch rooms. I can stay anywhere in this town and i always choose this hotel.

"Reliable Accommodation"

04/05/2017

This was our first stay at this property. We choose the property because the rooms were affordable plus they had a pet friendly policy. Breakfast was included which was very good relative to what I have experienced at other Best Westerns. The location was not within walking distance to the historic downtown area where dinning options and site seeing opportunities were abundant. There was a nearby jogging bike trail which paralleled Humboldt Bay. No transportation to downtown was available for guests.

We had a short overnight here but our room was modern and clean, beds were comfortable and the area was really very quiet. Parking spots are a little tight if you're driving anything but a small car. Doable but a little scrunched. We didn't get to use the pool but it looked nice. Continental breakfast had all the basics plus some hot dishes. Very good. We would definitely stay here again!

I would give this a 6 if I could. Our room was huge with an in-room jacuzzi big enough for a normal couple or a 350 pound average American. The bed was extremely comfortable. The staff were very helpful (highway 101 was closed due to landslides and they checked the current conditions on alternative routes for us without our asking them). Two adjacent restaurants with significant discounts for hotel guests.

I enjoyed our time at this property. The beds are comfortable and the rioms are clean. The breakfast is deluxe and they even have cookies when you arrive. It was a great hotel when traveling with a family. My only thing I found "unique" is there pool is half inside and 1/2 outside. Overall, if I go back to Eureka I would stay here again.

This BW gem is our go-to staycation destination. It all starts with amazing customer service from Emily M. I can't say enough about her attention and caring. Check-in is always with a smile and a delicious home baked cookie. The rooms are big and comfortable. The semi-indoor pool is housed in an incredible building. Worth a swim or soak in the hot tub just to admire it. And of course breakfast is great. We'll keep coming back here, that's a given. Best Western knows hospitality.

Our first visit to the redwood forest and I was very unsure of were to stay and with limited chains to chose from. I was very happy with the quality of the room at this hotel. It was well appointed and very clean with no damages to bathroom and bedding. We did not have a chance to use the pool or grounds but everything look well kept up and we would have liked to. I booked on Expedia and was not happy with there no refund policy and they really gave me the run around. I will book again but through the hotels site were I was told by hotel staff it would be no problem to refund my reservation.

This place is an absolute jewel of a haven on 101 South in Eureka so don't hesitate even one second to book it. A welcoming, effecient and speedy staff makes the check in a breeze and there is room front parking. On your way to the Garden section you will enjoy a pond filled with world class koi. There's also a very nicely maintained indoor and outdoor pool as well as a sauna and enormous outdoor hot tub. The rooms are beyond spotless and include an incredibly comfortable king, a dining area, a desk, a nice lounger, 42" flat screen, Internet and a spotless spa like bathroom . And they also provide a coffe set up with 6 different choices along with OJ, yogurt and pastries. BUT! That's before you even get to the breakfast Buffett in the lobby!! But wait, there's more. There's a totally awesome steak house on the premises situated right on Humboldt Bat so you can walk o dinner!! Book it Dano!!!!!

08/04/2017

My girlfriend and I stayed here completely by accident but we were amazed at what we found in our room. We originally just wanted to eat at the Marie Callendar's that we saw driving down the road. We thought, 'well, we probably shouldn't drive any further tonight and there is a hotel right next door so this works perfectly!' We decided to book a room and I think we got one of the fancier rooms on accident. Let me tell you. This is the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. There was a HOT TUB in our room next to our king-sized bed! There was also a fireplace and bath robes in the bathroom. Perhaps we got the honeymoon suite on accident? The koi pond was classy, the staff was friendly, the breakfast was great, and the hotel is right next to a shopping mall should you get the itch to shop. I was kind of sad when we had to check out. I will definitely stay at this hotel the next time I am in California.

"Sketchy"

1
21/11/2016

I stayed here on my way to LA because they say they are pet friendly. I got room 107 which seems to be well documented in the reviews on trip advisor. The room was big, and clean enough for one night, but not so clean that I wanted to use the spa or walk around barefoot on the carpet. One of my dogs was very interested in what was under the bed, and because the underside of the bed is boxed in, I couldn't tell what it was. The room was right across from housekeeping who made a lot of noise and right next to the road and party city parking lot. My dogs were already nervous on this trip but being surrounded by random noises, and with one of them fixated on something under the bed, I called the front desk to try to switch rooms. I received pushback from the front desk and I agreed to let housekeeping come in and check under the bed. They moved the mattress around and some of the pillows fell on the floor behind the mattress. They didn't find anything but when they left I found there was a bunch of gross fuzz stuck to the pillows that had fallen on the floor. Luckily I brought my own pillow. I paid about $90 for this room and I was still disappointed. There were sketchy people in the parking lot just hanging out for no reason. There was no place, and I mean absolutely no place, to take your dogs to do their necessary business. I kept taking them outside to the wood chips but one of my dog refused to go and it did not seem safe to walk around the area. I got up very early in the morning and drove my dogs 15 minutes to the dog park so they could go to the bathroom. I will never stay here again.

The room was spacious, comfortable and clean; however, the view was of the parking lot; they switched rooms on us upon arrival. I was tired and not aware that we wouldn't have the garden view I had requested over a month earlier. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evening. Get a garden view room. Air conditioning was noisy and tricky to operate in the dark. Check it out before retiring.

Avoid this Best Western at all costs. Room is priced like a Hilton but the accommodation's are a Motel 6. They say they are dog friendly, but wait until you see the room they put you in. People smoking all over the place in the parking lot and in chairs in front of their rooms. No place close to take your pet outside. And the area is not safe to walk your dog at night. Don't leave stuff in your car in the parking lot.

We spent 2 nights at this hotel. At first I was a little concerned about noise at the motel with it's location being more in-town, next to a mall and an RV center; there was absolutely nothing to worry about. The room was clean and quiet, had a mini-fridge and a fireplace! It had been raining for most of our day and I was about to jokingly tell the family, "we can kick back with a pizza by the fireplace in the room", and it actually had one! The stay came with breakfast. It was a decent breakfast. I would stay here again.

We come to Eureka once or twice a year to see family and we always book here at BW Bayshore Inn. We do our share of traveling and mostly look to Best Western first, and I think this one it tops, by far. From the friendly staff, to the cleanliness and value we love it. For the first time, I will say for Mgmt benefit, it might be time to consider a round of mattress purchase, we slept great, but they are becoming "auto-spoon", as we roll to the middle a bit. We still love the place...you will not be disappointed :)

We didn't have high expectations on arrival as the hotel is right beside Highway 101 however I got the best nights sleep of our whole trip. The room was huge, with 2 beds perhaps that's why I got a good nights sleep! There was a Jacuzzi, a fridge and a sink in the room. Fridges in the room are a pet hate of mine but this one you could turn right down so that it didn't make a noise all night. The room was well sound proofed so we didn't hear the highway in the night. Breakfast was included in the price. Lots of choice of hot and cold items. Altogether a good experience. Well done Best Western.

"Visiting the redwoods in comfort"

29/10/2016

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights while visiting the Redwood Parks. We stayed in a king room in the Garden section with a view of the lovely garden and koi pond. The room was comfortable and nicely furnished with a fireplace, easy chair and ottoman, microwave and fridge, as well as a small table with 2 chairs. The bathroom was divided into 2 sections, one room with the toilet and tub shower, the other with the sink and a long counter where the coffemaker was, as well as an open closet area. We liked the feature that the entire bathroom area had a door between it and the bedroom, so that I could get up earlier than my husband and get ready and even make myself coffee without disturbing him. I booked this hotel over the other Best Western because I did not want to spend more money for a resort/spa area that I knew we would not use. And when we wanted to eat downtown, it was only a short drive. This hotel serves a great included breakfast! As well as all the standard fare, they always had bacon and sausage, as well as either omelets and scrambled eggs, or french toast as substitute for one of the egg choices. Some of the finer touches that I appreciated were several different kinds of coffee, cinnamon raisin bread, various toppings for yogurt or oatmeal, and not only USA Today, but also the local paper, both complementary. The breakfast area not only had seating in the buffet area, but also a large adjacent room for seating. The breakfast staff as well as all the other staff were excellent. Also at the end of the street, behind the BBQ restaurant, is the Hikshari' Trail, a pedestrian/bike trail that runs along the bay for over a mile, if you would rather get your exercise that way instead of in a fitness room. Also conveniently near is the Bayshore Mall with a WalMart as well as other stores and a food court. I know this is a rather long review, but this hotel exceeded my expectations, especially since we were there for more than a night or two.

I have stayed at the Best Western Bayshore several times, with and without pets. It's an older property, but extremely well maintained -- clean and fresh, which is not always the case with pet-friendly properties. I can highly recommend it. Close to a nice bay walking trail and next to a shopping center in case you forgot to pack something.

We liked this hotel. It's a great option in a small town with very few options. Parking is tough but being one of the nicer hotels in town, it's expected. It's walking distance to the bay where you can walk a trail along the water, is next door to several restaurants and close to the mall if you want to do some shopping. Good breakfast and a nice pool for the kids. We'll definitely stay again next time we are in town visiting family.

We stayed at this hotel without knowing much about it. We were looking for a pet friendly hotel while traveling north.

Lots and lots of noise but the rooms have some sound proofing.

After we checked in we went to our room that was clearly marked "no smoking" but when we got into the room you could clearly smell the smoke. We called the front desk from the smokey room and they immediately said that they would fix it and to come to the front desk for a new room. I waited by the car and luggage while my wife got the new room key. It wasn't but 5 minutes later that she came back. She said they were so apologetic and wanted us to be satisfied so they gave us an upgrade with no questions asked. It was too bad that we only stayed there one night. I told them when we checked out that we had stayed in a Hilton for about twice the price but didn't get near the same kind of fast response and service that we did here

This Best Western was clean, the staff was friendly and the room we had was huge with a jacuzzi tub. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub as well as the full breakfast which was included.

The room was clean (no sign of previous pet stays or carpet stains) had a refrigerator, microwave, wifi, coffee maker and shampoo, conditioner and soap dispenser attached to the wall of the shower and was very spacious. FOR THE LADIES, hotel provides a small make-up remover bag. Bag contains, a make-up remover wipe, cotton swabs, cuties and a towel (I have never seen this kit anywhere else). I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Oh there is also a 24 hour fitness room, laundry room and sauna. It also has an indoor and outdoor pool!!!

Okay views from rooms even on second floor you can see water but mainly just the parking lot. We stayed in the garden wing (private pool area) no kids/pets. Very quiet large rooms! Hot tub in garden area very nice and we got to visit when it was empty. We walked though main pool/spa area an interesting inside and outside half wall pool but looked very nice. Hotel is more of an open air feel you walk outside after you exit your room would be okay in nice weather but in the rain a pain to get to breakfast area which is all the way in the front of hotel near lobby. Tons of breakfast options usual waffles, bread, eggs, bacon but also fresh fruit salad, biscuits, sausage and gravy and 7ish different types of coffee. Free cookie with check in!! Who doesn't love a free cookie?

Our room in the garden annex facing the bay had a small balcony, king bed, and electric fireplace, really quiet. Coffee in Room and full coffee bar at elevator entrance.

Great walking tracks within 200 yards of the hotel and handy to shops. Kitchen could have been a bit cleaner and no shower curtain so water went everywhere despite our care. But overall we were happy given their helpfulness. Parking inc.

This a beautiful hotel! Room was clean bed was super comfortable problem was when we turned the heat on nothing happened it wouldn't work. We called front desk they said they would send someone up. We waited for a hour and a half and no one showed up we called back and they said they had to come from across town so we go eat dinner come back and still no show. They finally show up at 11pm when we were asleep. My husband is handicapped so I couldn't let them in while he was asleep so we just stayed cold all night. I usually stay at best westerns but for the rest of our trip I stayed away from them

This is one of the nicest Best Western hotels we've stayed at. Our 3rd floor room had a view overlooking the lovely central gardens with large koi pond and seating areas. The breakfast was complete with a fresh fruit bowl containing pineapple, grapes, cantaloupe and honey dew melon. Crispy bacon, sausage, bisquits, gravy, waffles and oatmeal, in addition to all the normal cereals and breads. Several coffee flavors.

"Reasonable pch stop"

04/10/2016

Stopped here on our way up the PCH in order to get close to Redwood NP. The room and lobby were in great shape, and everything looked fairly new. The parking lot was a little tight, and people were stuck parking in compact spots with larger vehicles, but it all worked out for us. The garden view and pond were nice, but we didn't spend much time looking at those. It is a little farther from town, but driving over there was no issue. If ur looking for a nice clean stop on PCH, this fits the bill nicely.

Had stayed prior at this hotel, but was much more expensive then due to prime time (also had a toilet overflow during that stay, but attended to quickly). Location very convenient. This stay, MUCH better as rate was very competitive and love the walking path for the dogs. Also LOVE that the breakfast has enhanced water at the juice bar. Wi-Fi also the best I have had in recent stays. Highly recommended.

We were there one night only. The front desk staff were so wonderful. She was great in getting us a very nice large room with all the things we could ever way. The room was well taken care of and VERY clean. There are two great places to eat with in 200 yards of the Bayshore Inn. You get a 20% discount at one and 10% at the other one. The bed was so comfortable and it was quite. There is a shopping center close by if you want to do some walking or need something.

Great Hotel. Clean and great staff. Also restaurant close to hotel. The grounds are very clean and well kept. Love the Koi ponds in the inter-garden and all the plants. The hotel sets on the edge of down town. It is fairly quiet as apposed to being in down town where is can be a little noisy.

"A real disappointment"

2
27/09/2016

Although Best Western is a national chain, my experience has been that they very much more than other major brands. We had an unfortunate and disappointing experience. The hotel staff was courteous but a bit officious and definitely not helpful. The hotel has outside access only and although there was an elevator, it was far from our room. The room itself was small and minimally acceptable. We were told it would be quiet but it was right on a side street and across the street from a Walmart shopping center. A tractor-trailer truck started and ran his engine for about 45 minutes early in the morning. The hotel also had a number of long-term guests, mostly probably construction workers, who were on the noisy side. The outside lights for the parking lot and outside did not go on until quite late in the evening making the travel on the walkways more difficult than it needed to be. The breakfast was just okay. This hotel was definitely the worst experience of our trip.

We enjoyed our stay and very much enjoyed the breakfast service. It was part of why we chose to stay at Best Western because of the free breakfast bar. The food was good, hot and it was kept very clean. Very enjoyable

"Overnight Stay"

26/09/2016

My boyfriend and I were helping a friend move to Eureka when she booked us a night at this hotel. When we opened the door, we had a spacious, comfy King size bed, big TV and a gas fireplace! The bathroom amenities were something I had never seen before. A make-up remover pad, cotton balls, cotton swabs for your ears and even a black towel to remove your make-up. Even though the hotel parking lot was packed, we had a quiet night stay, which I was pretty happy with! We passed by the hot top and koi pond on our way out towards breakfast. Breakfast was good, waffles, bacon, sausage, eggs, toast, juice, fruit, yogurt and cereal. Next time we come up this way, I'm definitely going to be booking a room here. I just wish that the parking spots were a tad wider.

The room was nice and clean and they maintained the outside very well. The parking lot is a little crowded to get around and I'm not sure how they could improve it. Nice and quiet for us and great beds and spacious room. Breakfast was good (bacon was crisp and crazy good) and above average. We stayed on the main floor for good access to the outdoors. We had a pet friendly room and were very pleased with the ease of letting Andy outside.

"Okay if you need to crash but too far from the waterfront tourist area"

3
22/09/2016

It was getting late and we knew it was time to find a place to stay for the night. US101 cuts through the middle of Eureka and I saw the Bayshore Inn and it had vacancies. The staff was pleasant, the grounds and the small room well cared for, but the location was noisy and not well located for tourist and night life activities (far from the very attractive waterfront and Old Town). They sort of made up for these shortcomings with a better than average breakfast in the garden lounge. However, for me, location is everything and next time I'll book a room on the waterfront in old town.

"Humorous & efficent front desk clerk"

22/09/2016

I was traveling with extended family. We had 4 rooms. The evening check-in process was very efficient and personable. She made the end of our long traveling day not stressful. Hot cookies & coffee made our group more mellow. These rooms all opened to the outside, were simple and clean with a pretty teal/brown color scheme. Bathrooms had new shower/tub combo's and the granite counter-top/sink was separate. The breakfast had plenty of seating and an attendant was there at all times. I appreciated the hot real oatmeal with plenty of available add-ins. There was real bacon and eggs plus all the normal breakfast items. All 4 of our non-smoking rooms were perfect and I would stay again.

"Very Nice Stay"

21/09/2016

We stopped here for one night on a trip up the coast. The location isn' t great with a mall across the street, tractor trailers and campers along the side street and many transient people around. We had a room facing the street/mall which was not a nice view,but we weren't bothered by noise. The room was large,well decorated, and clean. The bed was comfy. They were booked full so the breakfast room was busy, but they did a great job of keeping it stocked with many selections and the tables cleared. The front desk staff was extremely pleasant. We often choose BW because no matter the location or age of the building they seem to strive for cleanliness, good breakfast, and customer serv ice.

"Surprisingly Good Transit Stop"

4
20/09/2016

We booked this as a transit stop on a drive from San Francisco to Seattle up Highway 101. We did not have time to use any of the hotel's facilities, and only wanted somewhere to get a good night's sleep. The hotel is right on Highway 101, so easy to find. The hotel was fully booked. We had booked months in advance and were disappointed on arrival by the limited and relatively poor choice of rooms - either backing onto the potentially noisy road, or a pet friendly room with potential dog smells, both on the ground floor. We chose the dog option. As it turned out, our room was fine. A typical 1970s style large room with dark decor and a comfortable king sized bed. Free WiFi was particularly good. We were pleasantly surprised that it was very quiet and we had a very good night's sleep. The hotel does not have a dinner restaurant, but there is an excellent steakhouse (Shamus's T Bone) at the back in easy walking distance. The hotel serves a good buffet breakfast. I think there is a swimming pool and some other facilities, but we never had time to test them. The hotel gave us exactly what we needed but was not one of those special places that we will remember for years to come.

"overpriced for a motel"

3
20/09/2016

Just an OK motel for a Best Western. For over $150.00 per night would expect better than just an ok motel. This is not a hotel....it is a motel with outside entrance doors. The only seating we had in room was a very small round table with 2 small kitchen like chairs. Parking spaces are scarce...they need more. Was also disappointed that they only had 1 washer & dryer for the amount of rooms they have. The mall is across the road & there is 2 restaurants within walking distance.

A very clean and comfortable room. Near a couple of pretty nice restaurants, and a very lovely walk along the water just a couple of blocks from the hotel. A pretty good breakfast too. I'd be happy to stay here again if I'm in the area.

"Surprisingly great hotel!!"

19/09/2016

I booked this hotel expecting a very average overnight stay, since it was to be just an overnight crash on our anniversary road-trip down the west coast. What a pleasant surprise! The room was large, with a great jacuzzi tub and included bottles of water. The bed and pillows were just right. I slept like a baby. My husband loved the breakfast (I slept in) and we left Eureka for Napa feeling great. A special note: when we got there, the clerk couldn't find our reservation. It turned out I had reserved the night before! It was totally my fault, yet the General Manager, Emily, was completely gracious and professional about it. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Our king garden view room with a wide-screen TV, and fireplace was clean and spacious. We were treated at the front desk with great cookies. Show your room key at Marie Calendar's, right next door, and receive a discount (also at the steakhouse at the back of the hotel property?). Free in-room internet and full breakfast were included.

This is a top notch hotel. We stayed in the back in the garden area and there was a beautiful koi pond and garden. It was truly amazing. So pleasant. There was a bonus for me that there was a piano in the lobby which I played and enjoyed thoroughly. I would recommend this place most highly. The adjacent restaurant is amazing. Best prime rib ever!

My daughter and I had a short stay overnight along with my 1 year old Maltese pup. I love that most Best Western hotels are accommodating to dogs. The room was quiet and clean, and the check-in very smooth and quick, which was appreciated late-night.

This was an awesome hotel. They have a pool, hot tub, suauna, and business center. We loved having a Jacuzzi in our room. The breakfast was really good had a little bit of everything and really enjoyed the breakfast sandwich. We were told at the front desk to walk to the historic park and it was just up the street very fun. It has a path talking about when solidiers were there and logging equipment used in the area.

"Another great stay"

11/09/2016

This property is making many changes to upgrade. The staff has new snazzy uniforms to match their snazzy personalities. Some of the changes are simple like not needing a gym key. My favorite is the new waffles machines. As always I was treated great by Rachel and Carlee this visit and welcomed back for the next. I need to find a new place to eat locally but the hotel and it's amenities more than suit my needs. Great job guys keep it up

"Quiet, easy to find"

Right off Highway 101. We were on the top/3rd floor at our request (after a sleepless night in another hotel due to noisy upstairs neighbors) and heard absolutely nothing from neighbors or the pool just down stairs. Looks like a new hotel and very clean, lots of parking, elevator. Buffet breakfast was good. Check in and check out was fast and friendly.

09/09/2016

Not exactly a great location , but the hotel property was clean and the staff friendly and accommodating. Eureka, in my opinion, looks sadly depressed. The Best Western sits close to the main boulevard, next to Marie Callenders where they offer a 20% discount by showing your room card. Property was well lit, and remarkably it felt very safe.

EmilyMBayshoreInn, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Bayshore Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for taking time to tell us about your visit. I am sorry that Eureka did not live up to your expectations. We unfortunately don't have a lot that we can do about the city itself. We do however work at providing an oasis to our guest while they are here. We hope we have the privilege to assist you with any future lodging needs.

"Underrated!!"

5
07/09/2016

Our experience at this hotel was nothing short of first class. Here's a list of what I was pleased with at this establishment: First, we arrived VERY early as we drove all night and into the morning. They allowed us to check in around 11am as the room was cleaned and ready. The staff was very nice and thoughtful... Almost as if their job was to serve customers.. Wild proposition I know. The room was very clean, fairly updated, the "fireplace" was a little corny because it was one of those moving picture fireplaces, as best I can describe it, but that is literally my only gripe. FREE breakfast was fantastic, although get there early as there are many hungry patrons. Or wait until the crowd has dispersed. The grounds were pretty cool. They had a decent hot tub and a koi pond area that's nice to look at. I've stayed at $700 a night hotels and I've stayed at $40 a night hotels, and from what I can see, BW Bayshore deserves a minimum 4 star overall rating. Thanks for reading.

We decided to drive up and stay for our anniversary to get out of the heat in the valley. Had the McDonalds view along street with refrigerated trucks cycling all night. That was romantic !! Went to use the in room Jacuzzi, it didn't work, but the hotel still made us pay full price for the room. Woke up last day of stay to no hot water at all, nothing like a cold shower to wake you up. You get the homeless wandering thru parking lot looking to see what they can steal from your car. If you approach, they can be aggressive. Don't think about walking any where around hotel, you could throw a rock and hit at least 2 homeless people. Some things I can deal with, but when they happen at once it's sad. I know the homeless is not their fault, but it is their "problem" and it needs to be addressed. I've stayed in nicer hotels without these problems for half the price. They should have armed security on site !!

This is a great hotel. It has a very nice breakfast with hot and cold choices. It even has a "grab and go" bag that is ready if you need to just go quickly. Marie Colander's is on property and the Bayshore Mall is next door. You can walk a block to the bay and then take a nice stroll along the bay. There is also a steak house between the property and the bay so there are lots of options of nearby items.

We were on our way to San Francisco and this was a stop over. The hotel was pleasant and had a good breakfast. It was a good choice for a stop over on our road trip. The bed was comfortable and the room was a good size for the 3 adults in our group. The location was convenient for sight seeing in Eureka as well.

"Excellent Breakfast is Included"

02/09/2016

We stayed here for only night on our way down the California Coast, in a 2 queen room. We arrived after the pool closed, so we were not able to make use of that. The parking lot was almost full, so my husband had to park illegally while we unloaded our bags. We had a second floor room that had a door facing the parking lot, and a window facing a beautiful courtyard in the back. We had breakfast about 8am, and as expected, it was packed. The hotel did a good job of handling the people, although I noticed some families had to split up at different tables. Our family of 4 shared a table with another couple. They had hot items, which they continuously ran out of for brief periods of time, 2 waffle makers with lots of toppings, and the standard continental fare. Enough drink choices as well. I helped interpret for a family that needed a gluten-free breakfast for their daughter (and they got it!). The sliding lock on our door did not work, but we did not call down to get it fixed because we were so tired we just wanted to sleep. The bolt did work, so we felt comfortable bolting the door and placing our huge duffle bag in front of it.

"Wonderful stay"

02/09/2016

We booked only one night at this hotel and wished we had booked a 2nd. It was totally booked, preventing an additional night's stay. The room we were given was in the "quiet" are with koi pond outside our door surrounded by lots of greenery. The room was very spacious and immaculate. The breakfast the next morning was very good. Staff were exceptional. It was walking distance to a sanctuary area with walking paths to view wildlife. All-in-all it was a perfect experience. However, can't say much for the Marie Calendars adjacent to the hotel. The service was horrible, the restaurant needed a good cleaning and updating and they were out of one of their specials at 5:30 PM!

Our stay at the Bayshore Inn was better than expected. Even though our room was on the 3rd floor, we had an elevator and carts to take our luggage up with. The room was large and comfortable, with TVs and refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom was good and clean, and nearby restaurants were available. The parking was great, and the morning breakfast provided by the Bayshore Inn was fantastic.

Hotel is a very good value for price. Rooms range from simple to plush, and even simple is plenty adequate. Free breakfast is included and it is as good as you might expect for the price. The dining room gets crowded and noisy but there always seems to be an open table available. The hotel is well maintained with attractive grounds. Good restaurants are nearby. Downfall, not the fault of the hotel, the homeless problem in the vicinity of the hotel is terrible. I felt unsafe on nearby walks. If outside the hotel grounds, lock your car and mind your valuables. Location is close to attractions.

The room was clean and spacious. Everything you would expect from a newer best western. Our room seemed newly redone. Great A/C in each room therefore allowing for the windows to be closed and a quiet stay. Breakfast was also good. Great price for what you get, which is a quiet, clean place to stay. Two slight negatives. 1. Caulk along the top of the bathtub in room 327 needs to be redone as there is mildew underneath it. 2. They put a $20 incidental charge on your card that they return in 2-3 days if nothing is wrong. This seems unnecessary when they have your card on file that they can charge for an room damages.

A wonderful hotel that has welcoming staff, clean and comfortable rooms and extremely comfortable beds. The amenities are good quality and set in a nice basket on the vanity along with a small black towel labelled 'makeup' which is a really nice touch. It's next door to 2 restaurants and a plaza with a TJ Max. The only negative comment is that the breakfast area is really small and cramped without enough seating and it gets REALLY crowded so I advise you to go early.

I can honestly say that I enjoyed my stay here at this Best Western. The room was very decent and the breakfast was great! One more thing that I can say made me also give them a 5 rating, is their awesome customer service. Ashley checked us in and out, she is so sweet and friendly, but also everyone we experienced in the front lobby were of great assistance. Will definitely stay here again.

"Lovely Room and Filling Breakfast"

5
24/08/2016

The purpose of our trip was to visit Redwood National and State Parks, which was about 42 miles north, so it was a bit far to drive everyday. However, anywhere closer was more expensive, so this BW Plus Bayshore Inn was a good compromise. First, the room was very clean and in good order, and the furnishings rather new and comfortable. Next, the breakfasts were quite copious with good variety--cereals, waffles, eggs, sausages, bacon, oatmeal, and fruit. A great idea was the "Grab & Go" bags which contained fruit, small water, and a granola bar. Little touches make the difference. My last compliment, but not least, goes out to the staff. Front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. I especially appreciate the hard-working maids, kitchen, and breakfast room staff. They work so hard, but no one really acknowledges them. I made sure to leave the breakfast room staff a tip everyday, and I left a tip for the room cleaning staff. The room was spotless, and there was no shortage of tasty food in the breakfast room. Nice job, Best Western Bayshore Inn.

The staff is friendly and their breakfast has a nice variety of items available. It is a dog friendly hotel with 1st floor access for the dogs. They even offer a little treat bag for you doggie friend. I recommend staying here for anyone coming to the area.

22/08/2016

hotel has curbside appeal. We asked for a non smoking room. Upon entering, the room wreaked of smoke. The clerk apologized and upgraded us to a garden suite. We were just hoping for a clean smelling room and were most appreciative of the garden suite. The historic district was quaint but the rest of the area along Rt. 101 was pretty run down. We were very disappointed that the former Carson Mansion is now under private ownership and no longer offers tours.

The hotel itself is fine. All staff we spoke to were friendly & helpful. Had an issue with our door card not working when we got there, but were told not to keep it near our mobile/cell phone or other cards with magnetic strips on. We had a nice big room on the ground floor as well. Seamaus T Bones just down from the hotel is great and there is a little walk along the sea front where you can see pelicans diving for fish, which is quite nice after a meal. There is a shopping Mall next to it, but unfortunately its not very good really. We were in and out within about 15 minutes max. The following isn't a reflection on the hotel at all, as I have always found Best Western Hotels good, but Eureka itself is not the best place we stayed. Im afraid we found it quite run down in 90% of the areas and the through traffic is very heavy. Finally be aware that there are 2 Best Westerns in Town. The other one is Down Town and near the Victorian Part of the town. That part was pleasant enough, but very quiet, especially as we went down there on a Friday night and expected it to be busier. Hotel I would recommend to all if you need to stay in Eureka, but Eureka itself....I would give it a miss

Homemade cookies at check-in, bottled water in your room, secure high-speed internet, electric fireplace in your room, a view of the garden and the bay, and a delicious steakhouse on premises. I was a little leary of the area, but all corridors are gated off and you need a room key to enter. Coined laundry on premises, carafes of several types of coffee with fresh fruit and pastries at various stations for the taking. A beautiful garden, huge koi pond and a hot tub in the middle. A welcome sight after a long day on the road.

"This hotel changed my opinion on staying at Best Westerns"

19/08/2016

After a really bad experience at a Best Western years ago (think willing to sleep in the car instead of hotel), we have avoided all of them. This trip we had 2 different locations where they seemed to be the only reasonable choice, we relied heavily on tripadvisor reviews, and they didn't let us down. Best Western Plus Bayshore was a pleasant treat, the room was larger than most, very clean, with comfortable beds. As seems typical with most Best Westerns, there are no interior corridors, room doors open directly to the outside, with the office and breakfast area in one building and rooms in others. Breakfast was very good with more options than at many hotels. After many years of avoiding the chain we will now consider them as an option, depending on their specific reviews.

It was nice. The rooms were really comfy. The breakfast is phenomenal! They have almost everything you can think of at the buffet. The bathrooms were clean and they have a really nice pool, gym, business center, and sauna. They are also pet friendly too! The pool is only open from 9-9 which is a bit early. Usually I like it 9-10. I felt like it could have had a few more things to give it the whole "plus" feeling but it was still nice. The staff were NICE AND EXTREMELY HELPFUL. This lady named rachel helped us who was super professional and quite funny.

The Best Western in Eureka is a great hotel while traveling along the California coast. The hotel is extremely kid-friendly and offers a very cool area for a swimming pool and hot tub. The hotel provides clean rooms, a nice workout facility and offers a decent breakfast. The front desk staff was very friendly and welcoming (Michelle? – I think). We strongly recommend the Best Western in Eureka – they also have limo service.

"Geographically convenient glorified roadhouse"

A perfectly serviceable bed for the night but deeply uninspiring in most regards. The rooms are spacious enough and shower products, wifi and breakfast (such as it was) are included which is a plus but there's no getting away from the fact it's in a semi industrial area and next to a prefab out of town mall. The quality of breakfast can be summarised by the fact it was a buffet using paper plates and plastic cutlery. Yeah, that. See the redwoods, use this place to sleep, get up and go.

"Excellent Customer Service"

14/08/2016

The hotel its self is very clean and comfortable, and the customer service at this property was exceptional. On our second night's stay we were looking for a taxi company to take us into town. As the area of Eureka is rather small, taxi companies are few and far between. The front desk agent who was on at the time not only located a taxi company for us, but went as far as booking one for us with pick up right outside our room. I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the northern California coast.

Friendly staff, clean rooms (although very dark - more lighting would be a plus!). Great free hot breakfast! Popular hotel - sells out quickly during busy season - don't wait to book! Close to several restaurants and a McDonalds. Fridge and microwave in the room.

09/08/2016

Our group of 5 (me, my husband, adult daughter, adult son, and his girlfriend) stayed here last month in a 2-room suite (2 queens in the main room and a 3rd queen in a separate room), and 1 bathroom. Each room had a TV and the main room also had a mini fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker. The rooms were very clean. The beds were comfortable and each one had 4 soft pillows. The bathroom had a hair dryer, dispensers for shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, a small bottle of lotion, make-up remover wipes, cotton balls & q-tips, a shower cap, and a nail file. The free breakfast included waffles (with toppings—strawberry, blueberry, and whipped cream), eggs, bacon, sausage, egg burritos, oatmeal, bread, bagels, mini donuts, pastries, coffee, teas, juices, flavored waters, and hot chocolate. We only got 4 breakfast “tickets” because the technical limit for the room was 4 adults (I don't know why), but it wasn't a problem because our kids are not big breakfast eaters, so only the girlfriend joined my husband and me. They have a pool, hot tub, fitness center, and laundromat, but we didn't use any of these. There is a mall across the street that had a Walmart which was convenient to stock up on drinks, snacks, and other supplies for our multi-day trek up the coast to Vancouver. Overall, we were very pleased with the accommodations.

Thank you for taking time to tell us about your visit. We are glad the family suite worked out nicely for you. I am sorry to hear about the breakfast coupon "mix-up". The coupon given with the keys does work for everyone registered to the room. We hope we have the chance to assist you again should you come back this way on your way back down the coast.

This hotel exceeded my expectations by a long shot. The staff is super nice and will go above and beyond to help you. The rooms are ultra clean and offer every amenity you can think of, the breakfast is good and the grounds are beautiful! They even have a coy pond. This hotel is very safe and secure, yet offers easy access from two parking lots. If you don't want to go to the breakfast room in the morning, they leave coffe carafes, pastries/ muffins & fruit near the elevator of the west wing. The service is amazing -- I highly recommend staying here.

Stayed here one night passing through town. Was surprised to walk into our room that had a completely separate living room area. I just thought I booked a king room with a pullout sofa. This was like a little apartment which was a great surprise. Hot breakfast was good, and close to other dining options. Would stay here again.

03/08/2016

The night before last, we stayed at a Best Western Plus and it was not worthy of the designation (I reviewed that property). This place, the Bayshore Inn in Eureka was well worth the Plus designation. The room was large, quiet and very clean. The bathroom was more than adequate and the assessories were plentiful. The beds were very comfortable and the TV was large. This is a very good place to say when in the area.

This hotel is a gem. The location is a block from the waterfront walking trial. We took advantage of the trial twice. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are large, clean and welcoming. Best hotel breakfast we had all trip. I would definitely come here again.

02/08/2016

My husband and I had been traveling for many days from Seattle, Oregon and then to CA, when we stayed in Eureka. Check in was easy and quick. We got a king size bedroom on the 3rd floor. The room is average size and the bathroom has the sink area separate from the shower/toilet area. The thing that may sound simple, but if you've stayed in lots of different hotels you'll understand, the air conditioner was THE quietest we have EVER experienced. It was great. No waking up continuously all night long because of the racket! They also offer a much better free breakfast than what we had seen anywhere, not just on this trip. Fresh berries was my favorite.

"Stay in the garden area."

02/08/2016

What a lovely experience. Everyone was so nice and efficient. I had stayed here before but hadn't seen the garden area. Wow. A koi pond, a large hot tub, grass, plants, no little yippy dogs (or any animals, for that matter), no smoking, and no screaming kids. Heaven. It was oh so quiet and peaceful.

"Lots of smokers and noise"

1
02/08/2016

We stayed here one night on our way down the coast. We found that the room smelled of badly and the bathroom even worse. While the staff said that it was not used by people allowed to use medical marijuana or smokers, the smell was strong. The staff did not offer any solutions. The rooms open onto a walkway deck where many people choose to smoke. It drifts into the nearby rooms. Also, there is noise from people and suitcases going by the room windows--particularly in the early morning. We would not stay here again.

"Very attractive setting"

4
01/08/2016

This a large hotel with very a pretty garden and coi fish pond. I'm sure they try hard but at peak periods they seems to struggle with the workload. The staff are efficient but rushed off their feet at times. They don't have time (or the energy) to take much interest in individual guests. This hotel has the potential to be great. Perhaps at less busy times it is.

"Beautiful, safe oasis"

Eureka is a depressed city with an extreme indigent population. Not just pan handlers, full on crazy with big intact dogs on virtually every block. We stayed here because it's clean & safe. Just don't walk your dog outside the complex. Food is close by, shopping mall - great breakfast.

"Visiting a new area that I have never been to before."

31/07/2016

The Bay side view is of the Bay, a parking lot and the restaurant located there. Having said that it is the best view of the entire establishment. The doors to the room do not slam when you close them. It is very very quiet. Never heard anything. The room I was in was a suite and it was great. Fireplace and Jacuzzi. The air-conditioner did its trick and what I really liked about it was it didn't cycle on and off which creates warmth, than cool and the changing of the sound can be disrupting to sleep. There is a large Koi pond with lots of huge Koi. There is a tray with different types of food like muffins and apples along with enormous amounts of coffee on the ground floor by the vending machines. Food goes fast though. Staff wasn't overly friendly, but professional. The free morning breakfast was packed with people. There was a lot of variety but I thought the food was just okay. They also have newspapers available if anyone is interested at the morning breakfast or on the ground floor by the pastries and vending machines. The steak house located behind where you get a 10% discount on just the entrée only was somewhat overpriced and just okay. The only issue that I had was on the cleaning of the room. They give you a card on how you want the room cleaned. My wife didn't want to have them wash the linens everyday so just marked the spot for change towels dump garbage and that is all they ended up doing. There wasn't a more precise comment on what we would liked to have done to the the room. To our surprise they didn't do any cleaning in the sink of the bathroom and left the bed unmade. I would expect that to be one even if nothing else was done. It is in kind of a less desirable part of Eureka, but I really really liked it!

This hotel is beautiful inside and out. Front desk on check in was fast and professional. Room was perfect. Except the bed was old, lumpy and difficult to sleep on. When we pulled the covers back you could see where the mattress dipped down in holes through out the mattress. Worst night of sleep ever.

Very good motel. The Garden Terrace rooms were very nice. Great Koi pond, oversized jacuzzi, plenty of seating, free coffee and vending machines. Rooms were spacious and clean. The lighting was good. I didn't care for the dispensers in the shower but it makes things easy if you have all that at your finger tips.

"Super comfy and good value, shame about the waste"

28/07/2016

We found this hotel to be excellent in many ways- friendly and helpful staff, beautiful luxurious rooms, super comfortable beds and plenty of room for a family of 5 with teenagers, all in the same room. Unfortunately there was a shocking use of disposable products used by the hotel, in preference to items that could be washed or recycled. The breakfast only had plastic cutlery and paper plates available, and most food items also had disposable packaging. What a shame when cutlery and crockery would be so much more pleasant to eat from, and so much better for the planet too.

"Very nice stay"

27/07/2016

We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus Bayshore. Our room was spacious, clean, quiet, and comfortable. We appreciated the elevator, as our room was on the second floor. There were plenty of dining options, some just across the parking lot. The included hot breakfast buffet was excellent. Parking was a minor issue but we were able to find a reasonably close space. We would certainly not hesitate to stay here again.

"Pleasantly surprised "

26/07/2016

What a wonderful place to stay! The staff was fun and friendly. The room was clean, well maintained, and the beds were very comfy. There was a yummy restaurant behind the motel overlooking the bay that served delicious smoked ribs, steak, and hamburgers. The motel also included a free breakfast with just about anything you wanted. We will definitely stay there again.

Our truck broke down while making the trek from Oregon to Texas and we were fortunate to be close to this hotel. It's very nice, and the staff was great. The room was wonderful and had a microwave and refrigerator. They have fresh baked cookies at the reception counter and 24 hour coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. Would stay here again if we ever find ourselves in Eureka.

We got to the hotel after driving for 10 hours. We checked in and received an upgrade it was exactly what we needed. I always feel relaxed here and safe.

We stayed here on our recent road trip. We had the two room suite, which has three queens. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable. We played in the pool a bit, it wasn't too crowded. Breakfast was good, there was a lot to choose from. Don't go eat at the restaurant on site - we thought it was awful!

The boys are talking about the same trip next year and coming back here again! (*.*)

We enjoyed our 4 day stay at this hotel. The room was clean and the breakfast was better than most and stayed well stocked until the very end. The ladies that cleaned our room would fold our kids blankets and arrange their stuffed animals on the beds. We would stay here again without hesitation.

"Decent hotel in a not great strip of town"

3
21/07/2016

The hotel is clean with a good level of basic amenities. We had a king room with separate living room. This is a good set up. Quite roomy and the sofa pulls out to a queen bed. Large bathroom area and good level of in-room storage. The employees are above average. They worked hard to solve any issues and be of assistance. There is a neat pool kids will enjoy and a small workout area. Parking can be a bit tight but there is enough. Skip the free breakfast and just spend a few bucks. The downside is the part of town. It is right on the freeway beside a relatively new mall. Other than the mall, everything else is run down with a lot of rundown people cruising the streets. Looks like a pretty serious problem with drinking and meth in this area. The downtown area is a better part of town. Near the hospital is a better place as well in terms of eating.

"Highly recomment"

We stayed here for almost a week. It was our first time visiting the area and we would definitely recommend this BW. Our rooms were clean and quiet. The breakfasts had a wonderful variety and were delicious. Can't go wrong staying here. We'll definitely be back in the future.

20/07/2016

The hotel is very nice and they give you a 10% off discount at the BBQ restaurant next door as well as Marie Callendar's. There is a beautiful Koi pond in the "adult area". The rooms are spacious. The breakfast is so so. The only issue I had is the area. There are several homeless people that hang out near by and try to get into the hotel. I also didn't like that they charged my credit card for the room a full week before we even arrived.

Checked in for 1 night with husband and 2 sons (25&22) while traveling the west coast. We got 2 queen beds on 3rd floor, per my request. Room was spacious, clean, and quiet. Breakfast had lots of variety and plenty of room to sit and eat. My only issue was the internet was down that night and next morning. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone traveling up or down Hwy 101.

"A gem in Eureka!"

15/07/2016

We stayed in one of the garden suites with the king bed and the in-room jacuzzi after a week of touring Highway 1. It was quiet, good food was close by, and the jacuzzi was awesome after a week of hiking. We called the hotel direct and got a great rate. The view isn't the greatest, but the rest was sublime.

"Very clean, nice hotel"

14/07/2016

Recently stayed for 3 nights while visiting Redwood National and State parks. The hotel was very clean and nicely appointed with a gorgeous courtyard garden. Breakfast was good with plenty of options. Room-wise, our accommodation was clean, roomy, and comfortable. We had a "bay view" room, but we mainly had a view of an industrial area and a restaurant. But, I suppose technical it is a bay view. The only other potential downside, depending on what you want, is that you have to drive to downtown Eureka for bars and dining. Having said that, there are plenty of chain restaurants choices within walking distance of the hotel (fast food, Marie Callander, a steak house), and the mall is across the street. Overall, we are very glad we stayed here and strongly recommend it.

But the room - very large, bed (king) so comfortable! Very nice sized bathroom area, 2 part sink and closet, then tub and toilet. Fireplace in room, flat screen, comfy chair. Coffee station with 6 varietiesin each section, (that also earns extra points) breakfast Buffett included. Promise you can't miss here!!

"Deceptive appearance"

02/07/2016

We partially selected this location because of website pictures. However, inner rooms and courtyard are restricted to children and pets. We were disappointed with the access. Also, there are no good pet areas outdoors.

"Very well mainted, excellent staff, beautiful garden"

5
02/07/2016

Where to begin? Check in was a breeze. The desk was very friendly and got us checked in extremely quick. We were informed our room was around back, with a bay view. We drove around back and unloaded our luggage. Entrance was made through one of three locked doors, opened with our room key card. We were greeted by a beautiful garden with a large koi pond. Near the entrance to the elevator on the first floor was kiosk loaded with coffee, hot water for tea, and pastries, all complementary. Also next to the elevator was a workout room, for those so inclined. When we got out of the elevator we were greeted by a view of the garden from the third floor. Our room was a couple of doors down. It was very large, had a flat screen TV, which we didn't use. We had a balcony with a view of the bay. In room coffee, hair dryer, flat screen TV, microwave and refrigerator. We had a king size bed that was very comfortable and the pillows were awesome. The electric fireplace provided an added ambience. In the morning, they serve a buffet style breakfast from 6am to 10am. It consists of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, oatmeal, cold cereal, different breads for toasting, hot waffles with different toppings to choose from, several different coffees to choose from, juice, hot chocolate, hot tea and a specialty item. That item was french toast on one day and breakfast burritos on another. A Marie Callendar's was on site, and adjacent was Shamus T Bones, a steak and ribs place. Not all rooms have fireplaces, and some rooms have whirlpool bathtubs. The westernmost rooms have the best view of the bay and balconies. Also, the wonderful garden and koi pond is just outside the door. The frogs will serenade you to sleep. there is a hot tub located in the garden area, too! The inn also had a large indoor-outdoor pool, sauna and exercise rooms.

"Awesome Koi pond and lovely surroundings"

4
02/07/2016

All-in-all, the stay was very good. The grounds are lovely and the rooms are very well insulated from each other. The garden area is beautiful with a lovely Koi pond. There are rooms that over-look the bay, which is where we stayed. The bay is in the distance and the window overlooks the parking lot and restaurant. Not sure I would spend the extra money for the bay view next time, when the garden view would be just as pretty. The wing we were in was very quiet and we did not know until breakfast how many children were at the hotel. Very quiet. I would not hesitate to recommend or return.

"BEST western"

01/07/2016

I have found Best Westerns to be fairly predictable good stopovers on the road. This property, however, is the nicest Best Western I have stayed at. It is very well maintained, has a nice hot/pool area and the staff is very nice. Eureka seems to be struggling, but it has some nice shops and restaurants and this is a good stopover if you find yourself in town.

01/07/2016

Very clean, nice breakfast, friendly staff. Water pressure in shower excellent. Pool small, but kids enjoyed it. chairs in room uncomfortable and bed too high and soft. Close to Humboldt Bay and the walk along it. Well worth the time. Do not use either of the restaurant adjacent; they are a waste of time and money.

"Excellent facility & staff"

29/06/2016

The evening staff at check-in and throughout our stay was wonderful, helpful, efficient and very knowledgable about what to do in the area. The front desk had staff quickly deliver a chair with no arms for us to use with table in room. Got a nice room on the 3rd floor with 2 comfy beds and a fireplace.

"Best breakfast"

29/06/2016

This Best Western has the best breakfast choices of several I have stayed with. Especially liked the various toppings for the typical waffles They also offer fresh scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy as well as the typical basics. Made it a great option, even though there is a discount for the adjacent Marie Callender's. The indoor/outdoor pool is is a fun experience for kids. I like that Best Western has some family suite options that make traveling with teenagers or older family members more enjoyable for everyone. Only suggestion.put the coffee maker in the common area and not in one of the bedrooms.

"Best hotel of the road trip "

28/06/2016

Stayed here with my family of 4 on our way up the coast. Rooms were big and clean. Staff was super friendly. Pool was heated and it was an indoor/outdoor pool. The garden area was beautiful and brought in hummingbirds that we watched while out by the pond. Breakfast was hot and filling. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

"Dog friendly but..."

3
28/06/2016

You if have to stay in Eureka I would recommend this hotel (as there are not many that are dog friendly) however... Good- -Outstanding free, buffett breakfast with potatoes, eggs, breakfast sandwiches, egg burritos cereal, pastries, bacon, sausage, oatmeal, yogurt, waffles etc. This was the best, impressive breakfast we had on our entire trip! -We stayed in room #107 (dog friendly). It was very large, updated, room. It was very clean, had soft towels, fireplace, jacuzzi tub, and a kitchen and a comfortable king bed. -The hotel is next to the large mall with many stores (PetCo, Kohl's, Party City, Ulta, TJ Maxx, etc.). -The staff was friendly and helpful at the front desk, breakfast area, laundry service. -A nice dog friendly, patio restaurant (in old downtown Eureka is Jack's Seafood). Their patio is right on the bay. Clam chowder is to die for! Beware though, old downtown Eureka has many bums around the bay so be careful. Beware- -Although our room (#107) was a newer, pet friendly room it was at the end of the hotel hallway. The room is right next to the busy street that runs next to the mall. Every night and morning there are semi trucks parked along the street. Our view out of our window was semi trucks and a street. -Unlike other hotels there is not a pet friendly place to take your dog to go potty. We were told by the front desk staff we would need to take our dogs across the street into the mall area parking lot/dry grass area. Really? At 5am in the morning or late at night? This town is not very safe to begin with. -Pets AND kids are NOT allowed in the nice, garden, koi area. In fact there are no pet friendly rooms with a view of the garden. We were reminded many times by the front desk staff we were not allowed to take the dogs into the garden (yes, we understand the policy and saw the signs). They didn't want to scan our keys (to allow us access to the garden/adult hot tub area so we could use it). My husband had to finally tell them has a bad back and needed to use the adult hot tub. He was not taking the dogs in there. We understood the rules. They finally agreed end to scan his card to allow him access. It depends on what kind of hotel you want in Eureka. I can tell you Oregon is very dog friendly (hotels, restaurants, etc). We travel there often.

"Clean and modern hotel"

27/06/2016

The garden rooms with a sea view are light and airy. The non garden rooms are dark and dingy. A modern hotel located about ten minutes drive from the old town and next to a shopping mall. A comfortable stop for one night.

"Fantastic service"

27/06/2016

This hotel went above and beyond to make sure there was parking for the tour bus. They provided 5people to unload the bus and take luggage to the rooms. They did the opposite in the morning. Best service we have had. Meals were great. Rooms were top notch. I highly recommend this hotel.

"Comfortable, clean, friendly staff and excellent complimentary breakfast"

5
26/06/2016

Good location, just outside the main town, close to walk along the lagoon shore and Fort Humboldt State Park, which is 5 minutes walk, uphill, and well worth visit. We had a room overlooking the garden which was peaceful. Only negative was the cost of the guest laundry - other Best Westerns are much more reasonable. Complimentary breakfast was extensive, good quality, and was continuously refreshed.

25/06/2016

This was one of our favorite hotels along our trip up the coast. It is right next to the beach and has a nice pedestrian bridge to view the ocean. Each room on the ground floor has a little patio with two chairs so you can sit and watch the waves roll in. They have several fire pits on a large patio at the back of the hotel. These were great after walking in the cold water. The room is very nice and clean.

We once had a larger group, but now we are three. On a trip in 2015 and now 2016, June, we stayed at this inn. They gave us a family sweet which is three queen beds, perfect for three guys on a road trip. Great place to stay and restaurants are walking distance.

They go over and above to satisfy your needs. Breakfast was very good. Staff was very friendly, courteous, and knowledgable; close to everything. Cookies great hit with kids along with hot chocolate and coffee. Will stay here again

"Worth staying just for the breakfast!"

21/06/2016

We stayed here while traveling on 101 up to Oregon. The hotel is right on 101 but the rooms are quiet. We stayed in the regular part and not the "garden" section. The front desk staff was welcoming and friendly when checking in. The king room we had was spacious, nice décor inside the room, bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The room came with a microwave and fridge that had an actual freezer so if you're traveling with an ice pack, that was very handy. Not all hotels that even have fridges have freezers with them. The Wi-Fi was very dependable. The breakfast runs from 6 to 10 so if you need to get on the road early, you can catch it before you leave, or if you're just on vacation, you have the option of sleeping in a bit. The breakfast is fantastic with a wide variety of fruit toppings for waffles, toppings for oatmeal, mini Denver omelets, various breads, eggs, yogurt, bacon and sausage, fruit. A similar breakfast at a restaurant would cost at least $10 to $15 per person.

"Very attractive property"

19/06/2016

Our room was in the "garden" section (which means that no kids or other pets were allowed). The noisiest beast in the area was a frog. The room was quite nice. The only concern I had was about the area in which breakfast was served. It seemed too small and not well designed for the large number of people who could stay at this hotel.

"Nice Place To Stay"

18/06/2016

This is a really nice hotel. Buckeye_Traveller summed it up real well. We had a room that accepts pets, but you would never know it. Everything was nice and clean. The breakfast was the best I've seen. It would rival the buffet at most restaurants. One thing that I found unhandy was not having soap by the sink. The shower has dispensers for shampoo, conditioner and body wash, but to wash your hands at the sink you need to go to the shower and get the soap. Highly recommended.

"Pleasant night's stay"

18/06/2016

Stayed one night during a Redwoods trip - easy, friendly check-in, modern room, with 2 restaurant options within walking distance AND with hotel discount. Fridge and microwave in room, odd to have a 2 queen room with a small table but only one chair (where did the other go?). Lots of hot options at breakfast, which was a plus.

As always the rooms are very nice and clean. The security system for the facility is a 5 we always stay in the newer addition which is to the back side all guests must use a pass card to enter the area, it's very relaxing area matter fact it is shown on the picture above the hot tub and koi pond probably some of the largest I've ever seen then in the evening time you hear frogs that are very loud then all the sudden they stop I've asked employees if they're really frogs and they say yes but I find that a little hard to believe I think it's a recording because it doesn't so frequently but it doesn't matter it's a very nice and relaxing . The rooms come with fireplaces in the upper levels comfortable beds nice if you ask for the west side youll be able view the Humboldt Bay. The rooms are very quiet you not hear your neighbors. The only negative thing I have to say is we stayed in April and they already had increased their rates to their summer rates schools are not out for summer vacation yet in California or Oregon or Washington so I feel the rate should have still been in winter rates until May. I will continue to return, I enjoyed this hotel very much so but there is competition moving in down the street a brand new Holiday Inn that will be giving them competition. Some consideration in raising the rates so soon need to maybe rethink the time of the Season in reality in raising the rates. I believe I've been staying at this establishment probably for the last 5 plus years on and off anywhere from 2 to 3 times a year. I I believe I stayed before December again in April and then also this past week during this time December through June three separate times one was for one day going up to Oregon and then on one night on the return trip . I spent 3 nights with my wife in April when we live 2 hours North of San Francisco which is 3 hours south of Eureka but we would rather go to Eureka and spend time then drive down to the big city and spend time I believe the rate should be considered when you spend more than one night or two nights at the hotel and it shouldn't count if it's a weekend or weekday. The lates stay was only June 13 and 14th what is a graduation from the College of the Redwoods Police Academy. So in the next statement and ask what sort of trick is this for me I fit all those some of its business some of the couples stay some is going to see family friends or just to get out of town. So until the next time

"Nicest Best Western"

14/06/2016

My family and I stayed at the Best Western Plus Bayshore Inn in Eureka, California in June 2016. The hotel sits near the bay, and has parking in the front and back, with 3 restaurants adjacent. The hotel has a beautiful courtyard with a fish pond and creek. They also have a free coffee stand with snacks at the hotel building. At the separate lobby building out front, they have one of the best included breakfasts that I have ever had at a hotel, with a great staff maintaining it. The staff was very friendly to guests and each other. Our room looked in almost new condition, was clean and had queen beds, a flat screen TV, refrigerator/microwave, desk with a chair, plus a separate table and 2 chairs. The included internet was a good speed for what we needed. I did not see a swimming pool, but there was a nice sized jacuzzi in the courtyard area. Since we were not swimming, I did not ask about a pool. Other than that, I highly recommend this hotel if you are in the Eureka area.

06/06/2016

This Best Western was clean, although dark and needs some updating. The staff was super nice and the breakfast was decent. We had the 3 bed room which was great for us. We were on the end, 1st floor. Again, this was perfect for us and my 86 year old grandmother traveling s us.

"Great experience at Bayshore Inn"

The 2 bedroom suite was uncomfortable not having two bathrooms for 4 adults. Half way through our visit we switched to a King Suite. The King Suite with fireplace was fantastic. The accommodations were clean. Breakfast was great.

"Wonderful stay"

5
04/06/2016

Very comfortable room. Super staff! We stayed in one of the Family Suite rooms so that our third person had her own room with her own TV. This location has the best breakfast that we had at ANY hotel ever! We were so happy with this hotel, which was the first one we stayed at on our vacation, we decided to stay here again on the last night of our vacation as we headed home.

"Good option for overnight stay"

3
04/06/2016

We liked that it was just on the edge of the town, but we wouldn't recommend the town at all. The room comfortable and clean, and the price was reasonable. We were happy with the hotel, and we would recommend it as an overnight stay.

"Road Trip"

03/06/2016

Arrived June 1, was greeted by a very friendly and helpful hostess. We were booked in the back in the no kids or pet area which provided a peaceful setting along with a hot tub and large koi pond. The motel appeared to be only a few years old and was in great shape . The rooms were large enough with a king bed, desk, table with 2 chairs and a chair for relaxing in. What was eye catching was a coffee bar outside on the first level that had about 10 Air Pots with different coffees, doughnuts, yogurt for your taking along with serving a hot breakfast at the office. Another nice feature was our area was only accessible with a key/card from the outside. My only complaint is the frogs are noises by the koi pond at night, but I tuned them out. I would recommend this motel if your traveling to the area.

30/05/2016

I would rank this average, nothing bad but nothing special. The breakfast was the usual stuff. Oatmeal was a little pasty, but fine. It was nice to have dried cranberries to add. Location was not ideal if you were going to the historic downtown. There isn't a light on Hwy 101 and getting out was a pain.

"Nice pet friendly hotel"

30/05/2016

My friend and I stayed at this hotel one night and found it a nice place. We had an accessible room and had a small dog with us. Room had plenty of space, clean - breakfast was same as the other Best Westerns we stayed at.

27/05/2016

I am from Texas. I stay at this hotel whenever I am in town. When I have all my Grandkids I stay up front. This time it was just me taking my Sister on a retirement trip through California. We stayed in the Garden area. The rooms are very spacious...comfy beds...very clean. The garden area is child free, quiet and we enjoyed the hot tub. We met several other happy travelers. As always the breakfast had a wide variety. It is nice that Marie Callendar's Restraunt will deliver room service; but we chose to go there for our evening pie. My sister and I are in our 60's and we felt pampered and safe throughout our whole stay.

"Great overall hotel"

5
27/05/2016

We stayed one night on a road trip, so Bayshore Inn was one of many Best Westerns for us this trip. Of those it is right up there in the top 2 with overall best places of its type to stay. Location was perfect, check in fast, and room on top floor with a garden view. Employees all friendly and helpful. The garden includes a large koi pond with a bridge. When we got back after dinner all the frogs were singing! We could even hear them from inside our room for awhile, which we loved. Good variety of breakfast choices, food tasty, and lots of attractive areas to eat. An added nice touch were coffee, tea, juice and pastry stations outside off the main corridors. Room spacious, well-arranged and clean. We enjoyed our stay and definitely would return if up Eureka way again.

We have stayed at many hotels over the years. This was one of the finest Best Western hotels we have ever visited. Normally, I would not give 5 Stars, but this place earned them. The hotel was clean, quiet, and very well maintained. The breakfast was delicious. The staff was efficient and friendly. If you are passing through Eureka, this is the place to stay!

"No Electronic TV Guide, and a dark room"

25/05/2016

This hotel is just fine, what you might expect of BW. But as is too often the case, there was no electronic TV Guide so one could not scan to see what was on the TV that evening / night. And since we didn't watch TV, we thought about reading, but the room ad so little light that was not a good option either.

This is one of the nicest hotels we've every spent a night at. The attention to detail is outstanding - from the extra luggage rack space, the 24 hour coffee (and even pastries in the morning) in the vending/elevator area, the upgrade to a bay view fireplace room in the garden section due to Best Western rewards status, to an indoor/outdoor pool that was warmer than the indoor pools we've been using. The garden area with a koi pond and outdoor spa was filled with green grass and flowers. Everything was spotless and all staff were friendly and helpful The breakfast was tasty, plentiful and served in a very nice setting.. There is a nice black top walking path along the bay easily accessible from the back of the hotel.

As always the best place to stay in the area. The back section is an escape from travelers facilitated by the friendly staff that strive to make your stay enjoyable. Whether it resturant ideas or fun conversations about the are you can't go wrong. I try to make it up there every month when possible and when I do I'm greeted like Norm from cheers. I stay alot and if more hotels had employees like Rachel and Carlee staying out of town would be more enjoyable.

22/05/2016

I would have rated a 4 but they didn't clean our room for the multiple days we stayed and we had the sign they provided us on the door! So the was a huge disappointment vacation means not having to clean but! The breakfast was complimentary and had a ton of choices that tasted great! Comfy and clean room/beds and a big jetted tub which I loved! So overall I'd stay again because of the good qualities it did have.

"Good faciliities"

22/05/2016

This was a clean and comfortable motel with a laundry room, which was very helpful for us as we on a road trip. No complaints about the room, which was clean and comfortable. There is a pool with hot tub which we didn't use. It is an easy walk into the old area of Eureka, which was interesting. Although we didn't use this service, the hotel offered to drive/collect guests from restaurants in the town.

20/05/2016

To be honest, we weren't expecting too much seeing it's location at quite a busy road. But to our surprise the room was recently updated. It was clean, comfortable, spacious and it looked out at the garden with pond. Very happy the road noise was none existent and we were able to keep the sliding door open for fresh air until very late. The only thing for us was the noise at night from the frogs(?) at the garden pond. The noise!! But that's nature.. And so we slept soundly with the sliding door close. If you're a very light sleeper i can imagine you'd might want a room as far away from the frogs as possible. Good breakfast, friendly staff.

"Good Stay"

19/05/2016

I stayed here with my husband not too long ago. Good hotel - clean and comfortable. Beautiful koi pond! Easy to navigate. My only problem was one of the staff who walked around at night was loudly, and I mean loudly, talking about all the drugs he has and still takes to another staff member... That definitely made me feel a little uneasy about him being there. He looked around my age, probably in his mid-50's and appeared o.k when walking around, but getting a closer look at him made me think otherwise... Will stay again sometime in the future - the rest of the staff was very accommodating, just maybe hope they don't have any more staff members loudly proclaiming all the types of drugs they are taking when guests are around...

"Outstanding"

17/05/2016

This Hotel has always been the most comfort and clean. The Staff works in a Excellent Manner. Very clean and I have never seen anything that would make me not want to stay. The hotel is also in a very nice Area in Eureka. Walking distance to the Mall. A Steak Restaurant a block away, and a Coffee Shop on Premises. Very nice and Clean Pool and Hot Tub that you can also relax in. I highly recommend. Prices do go up in Summer Time, but the rest of the year is very reasonable

"Impressed!"

14/05/2016

We came up for my brother's graduation and I have to admit that I was a bit put out to pay over $300 for a room at a Best Western, but I have to admit I was really pleasantly surprised. It is a very nice hotel, with many thoughtful amenities in the room (complimentary bottled water, makeup remover, etc). The pool/spa is nice and very kid friendly. The staff is super helpful and polite. We arrived earlier than expected and they got our room ready in 30 minutes and let us check in early. As I said, it was graduation weekend for CSU Humboldt, so I think the rates were higher than normal. We travel quite a bit and I would honestly say it is as nice as many of the 3 star hotels we have stayed in. It's not the Ritz or the Four Seasons, but it's also not a regular Best Western.

"Average seems to be $150/ night"

13/05/2016

Went here and learned some things. If a place is pet friendly and you don't have pets with you ask for a pet free room, it doesn't need as much disinfectant if the previous tenant was careless. Always check for a Costco discount if you're a member. Rooms in the back of this place are quiet with little traffic noise. Rooms are clean and beds comfortable. Staff is friendly and attentive. Downsides are paper cups for coffee. Plastic utensils and paper plates for breakfast. No wine openers in room .

"Breakfast with Brian"

10/05/2016

As with many hotel chains, a good breakfast is served between 6 and 9 AM. Being a business traveler, I often need to be out and on the road well before there is anything available to eat. This is never the case at the Bayshore inn. Although advertised as a 6- 9 am or possibly 10 am breakfast, I routinely grabbing a hot meal at 5:30 or before, and it is greatly appreciated. My thanks to Brian, the shift supervisor at the Bayshore Inn. Carl

The price was a bit higher than what I expected, but the hotel staff were polite and professional, the room was very nice, and I had a good nights rest. There are two restaurants within walking distance that give discounts for staying, and the full breakfast was more than adequate. It is very likely I would stay here again if I find myself in the area in the future.

Making our way from Southern Cal to BC by way of the 101. Stayed here 1 night after reading TA reviews. My take: excellent value and CLEAN (I'm a hotel snob). Breakfast was full warm self serve and staff was very friendly. There is a Marie Callendars in parking lot that gives you a 20% discount if you eat there or also does room service! A plus after a long day exploring redwoods! Hotel has elevators and accepts pets! There is another Best Western a but further north of this one. We drove by it on our way out of town and it looked like the area was pretty sketchy. I was traveling alone w/teenage daughter and felt very safe at this location. I would not have at the other.

I've stayed in a lot of Best Westerns but this was by far the newest and cleanest of them all. Convenient location. Very quiet. In the evening all I could hear were the frogs in the garden. Breakfast was great. This location has a lot to offer like omelets, bacon, sausage, waffles, Fr toast, cereal, bagels, juice etc. There are restaurants in front and behind the BW as well as a shopping mall next door.

"Still Good, but not Great"

25/04/2016

This used to be our "go-to" motel when visiting family in Eureka, but it is no longer our "default" motel. Prices have risen greatly in the past 2 years, and the quality has not matched the increase in price. We have found that to be true overall with Best Western. We used to stay exclusively at Best Western, but now, for the price, we look elsewhere as well, and do comparative shopping for accommodations. It is still a good place, but no longer for us the best place. That being said, there is still a substantial breakfast included in the price of a room, usually very comfortable beds, although not this trip, regretfully. But it is a reliable brand, and I don't take that lightly.

"GREAT hotel experience! "

21/04/2016

I don't normally post reviews, but wanted all the travelers out there to know if you happen to need a hotel in Eureka, this is a really nice one and well worth the money. We stayed in the back "adults only" section with a 3rd floor balcony room and waterfront view. The room was exceptionally clean, really enjoyed the coffee bar by the pool and the staff were outstandingI will stay here again without a doubt.

17/04/2016

We had a first floor room right by the garden and koi pond, which were delightful. The room seemed dark, even with the lights on ... and the bathroom door that separated the toilet/tub area from the sink seemed to get in the way a lot. But the price was great, they had fresh cookies at check-in, and our rate included a hot full breakfast. Not far behind the hotel was a long walk that bordered the bay. If you take it, go during daylight since there are no lights.

From the minute I walked in the door Rachael greeted me. She made me feel like I was her most important customer of the day. She was fast and efficient with my registration. She suggested places to eat and see in the area. She is worth a MILLION DOLLARS in my book. She is the reason I will return someday to this hotel. If not to stay but maybe just to say hello and thank you for making this the most MEMORABLE stay of my entire vacation. You need to stay here if you want the type of hotel stay that can only be described as a perfect stay..

11/04/2016

We wanted to stay here as part of a family road trip with our dog, but when we arrived they told us they had no available pet friendly rooms despite our reservation. Probably a great hotel, but I would reconfirm your reservation. We were very lucky another hotel in town had a room for us.

11/04/2016

Spend the night and shop till you drop. Centrally located to the mall and all kinds of restaurants in Eureka. The internet was very fast, rooms, very clean and check out is at noon, which I prefer. You can walk to the mall and all kinds of restaurants, no need to drive and park. The Eureka Health food is great for munchies in your room.

I stayed here one night while bicycling the ACA Pacific Coast route. It is a nice, clean, comfortable motel with a guest laundry (an essential for bike packing trips). The food at the adjacent Marie Calendars was not of the quality I remember from years back when the chain first formed; better offerings may be had elsewhere. Overall this is an excellent place to stay and reset for the next day of riding.

I stay for several nights at a time about 4 times a year at this venue, and have never been disappointed. The rooms are always clean, the beds are comfortable, the staff is warm, professional and helpful. It's centrally located to surrounding towns where I do business, and not too long a drive to any. I'm not personally a fan of chain restaurants, but Marie Calendars is next door for those who are looking for something like that. WiFi is free and easily accessed.

We stayed in the Garden Section last Sunday. Lovely rooms. Very clean and well appointed. Everything about the room and the property that we noticed was impeccable. We had a very restful, enjoyable stay for the night we were there. The breakfast was ample and tasty. There were pastries, juice, coffee and newspapers near our rooms. I really can't find anything negative to say. A big shout-out to Ashley who went above and beyond to assist us. Our son, who was recovering from shoulder surgery, was accommodated so that he could rest. I only wish that we could have stayed longer. There will be a next time, though! Thanks to the staff of Bayshore Plus.

This is the best hotel in the Eureka area. The rooms are nice and very clean. The property is eco-friendy. The breakfast is better than the local restaurants.

We have stayed at the Bayshore BW several times & it just seems that the quality has gone down. If you step off the property there are numerous either homeless or vagrant people hanging around. Not a good area anymore.

"Great stay!"

02/04/2016

Our stay was actually April 2014, but we've been hoping to come back soon. Best hotel stay we've had (great place when setting the Redwoods). Comfortable beds, clean rooms and the best continental breakfast we've ever had. Didn't use the pool or hot tubs, but hope to next time. We've recommended this hotel to many and can't wait to come back!

"Clean and Correct"

My stay was for one night, in our trip down South on 101. This is a good option with a newly renovated hotel, ample parking space and a honest breakfast included. We were assigned the non smoking, no pets and no kids wing, which is much more silent. The room is large (king) and a very ample bathroom. All very clean and crisp. The attendants at the reception were courteous and efficient. There is noise from the street due to the heavy trucks parking overnight on the side of the hotel. A good option for dinner is very close with the Shamus steakhouse. Texas style barbecue and very good.

"Top of the line motel"

This place gets a five from me. Giving it five stars for the category of motels. It is pretty. We had the two room suites which was only $8 more that a king room. The pool was indoor/outdoor and the rooms were very nice and roomy. The breakfast was not your average continental breakfast dut a full on hot breakfast

"Fantastic"

02/04/2016

This is a great value and location. It is quiet, the staff is polite and the surrounding area has great options to eat, walk, shop...cant say enough great things about this location. I was in town to visit HSU with my daughter and was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful and clean everything is. I expected a bunch of pot smoking dreadlock hippies wearing nasty sandals and crusty feet...nope, I was way wrong this place is beautiful!

"Ok not much better than a motel!"

01/04/2016

I found this to be a motel with a few extras. The swimming pool was a welcome facility although quite small. Room was comfortable although quite dark. Free breakfast was a bit of a free for all and with plastic plates and cutlery it felt a bit cheap. Quite expensive for what it is at $95/night.

"Excellent hotel in Eureka"

Loved the breakfast, friendliness of staff, homemade cookies upon check in and overall cleanliness and location of this hotel. We brought our pet and even our dog friendly room was very clean and well maintained.

"Nicer than average motel"

30/03/2016

We have been staying at different hotels during a 10 day trip to Oregon and the northern Cali Redwood parks. This hotel was under $100 but really has the quality of a nicer hotel. Room was updated, immaculate. Bathroom was deluxe. Fantastic breakfast buffet. This was the nicest hotel on our trip, way nicer than the price. Very convenient to the Humboldt redwoods and those to the north.

"Great Customer Service"

30/03/2016

This was a last minute reservation for my family during Spring Break, and the staff went above and beyond to be accommodating! Rooms were clean, nothing fancy, but good for the value! Breakfast was average, but a good plus when feeding a family, plenty of options to choose from. Great location across the street from the beach, with easy access.

"Recommended Stay"

28/03/2016

After traveling 10 hours, from northern Oregon, this hotel was a welcomed sight. We asked for a quiet room and were given the top floor, with our window looking out to a Koi Pond. The room was clean and quiet. The bed was great. We left before breakfast was served, and they gave us a "breakfast to go" bag....bottle of water, apple & granola bar. Very nice gesture.

"Great Room"

28/03/2016

Had all the amenities we were looking for, fireplace & Jacuzzi tub, and the King bed was comfortable. Had a very nice staff & great location! Was able to book at the last minute which was great as it was a spontaneous trip.

"Great place to stay in Eureka"

28/03/2016

Great place to stay. The complimentary breakfast is one of the best! 2 great restaurants within less than a block. I recommend staying in the back in the courtyard area. It's beautiful & quieter. Probably the best hotel in Eureka.

"Wonderful Stay"

27/03/2016

We stayed one night, on our trip back from Southern California. After the disgusting and loud hotel we stayed in the night before and the 10 hour drive we had just finished, this hotel was like heaven. It was beautiful inside and CLEAN. The staff honored our request for a top floor room and I was so thankful. We got to relax fully and get a full night's sleep. The breakfast was really good with lots of options (fresh fruit, waffles, oatmeal, eggs, sausage, pastries, etc.). I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone thinking of staying here.

"Great place to stay!"

26/03/2016

We were passing through Eureka on our way back to Southern Oregon and decided to take the coastal route home instead of Interstate 5. Eureka is definitely an out of the way place, and they don't have a lot of hotels to choose from, but this place did not disappoint. The front desk clerk was over the top friendly and knowledgeable, and so professional. I had booked my room over the phone not knowing anything about the hotel, and was very surprised at the comfort and convenience of the room. Everything looked very new, as if this hotel was recently built. We stayed in the king room with a Jacuzzi tub and a fireplace, plus it also had a kitchen with dishes and everything needed to cook a meal. My husband and son enjoyed the pool and they have a great continental breakfast in the morning with more food than I have ever seen at a hotel breakfast. Also, they give a 20% discount at the Marie Calendars restaurant next door if you show them your room key, so that was a nice bonus. Overall, I will definitely go back to this hotel if I am visiting or passing through Eureka!

"Wonderful staff, consistent quality"

24/03/2016

We stayed at this hotel for a total of 17 days during two visits, and found all the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable. Breakfast offers a good variety of hot and cold foods, and the quality was very good. This Best Western is our number one choice when staying in Eureka.

"Full amenities, but not full access for families. Very disappointing stay. Won't return."

2
23/03/2016

We choose this more expensive option of Best Western of the other one in town, due to the pictures and review online. The price was considerable more at check in, but being the beginning of spring break we were tired and ready to relax after driving all day. The gentleman at checkin was very friendly and helpful. After that, the other staff was aloof. We took our very well behaved children to see the koi pond that was on the map only to be told to leave by staff. It seems that the rear buildings are for even higher paying guests that don't want to be bothered by kids or pets. I can completely respect that, bit wold have appreciated the notice beforehand. At check in, on the door entering the koi area, or even on the map would have been considerate. Instead the staff choose to offend us by asking us to leave the area. I would have rather my children not even have known that it was there than to be treated like they did something wrong. Be aware the the pictures presented online represent this "off limits" area. The hotel also did little to quiet the crazy man repeatedly yelling for "Becca" and pounding on doors at 3am. The only saving grace of the stay was the amazing staff at the Marie Calendars restaurant located in front of the hotel. The hotel breakfast was phenomenal. It's too bad the attitude of the staff at checkout did not match. Sometimes a simple acknowledgement and apology go along way. I've had much better service at less than the $225 this location charged. Definitely not a highlight of our family vacation. Very disappointed.

23/03/2016

Family vacation to the Redwoods. It was nice to have a room with 3 beds verses booking 2 rooms to accommodate family of 5. room was clean and I appreciated the complimentary body soap, shampoo and conditioner dispensers in the shower. We were disappointed the pool closed early and opened at 12- check out time. Breakfast had a variety of items: Eggs, Sausage, bacon cereal, yogurt etc.

"Great place and good value!"

22/03/2016

Got there in the middle of the evening rush and excellent staff (esp Rachel) handled a line out the door and 2-3 phone calls in a very pro and expedient manner. Rooms were clean and well appointed. 20% discount at Marie Callender's (onsite) worked out well for us.

"A high 4"

21/03/2016

We recently spent 5 nights on a road trip from Vancouver to San Francisco - we stayed here our second night and it was our best stay. The room was large and in good shape - it was clean and the breakfast was good. It is in a good area but no where too exciting.

"Very Busy Hotel but Comfortable bed"

20/03/2016

Was in Eureka on business for two nights. Room was comfortable and the bed was terrific. The walls are kind of thin but everyone around me was quiet for the most part. Parking lot has a lot of activity late into the evening. Large Homeless problem in Eureka and there were panhandlers that ventured into the hotel parking lot. Restaurant adjacent to hotel (Marie Calendars) Full breakfast available at the hotel. Thanks for the nice stay.

"Always a favorite"

16/03/2016

The Bayshore Inn in Eureka is one of my favorite places to stay. The rooms are nice, the staff is helpful and friendly. Prices during peak season are a bit high, but it is a great overall experience. It is located very conveniently and is a very well maintained property. The breakfast is one of the best I have found in the Best Western chain. Shopping, entertainment, food, virtually everything you need is located with a very short distance, much of it within walking distance.

"Business/Family"

Easy Access; excellent helpful, friendly staff; excellent location; nearby vistas; excellent service; breakfast better than most Best Westerns; allowing small pets for a fee, fantastic; nearby shops and retailers - Overall, highly recommended.

Had a wonderful stay, room with fireplace and in room spa was so clean and full of amenities. It was a pet friendly room so my dog also enjoyed the stay. There wasn't any traffic noise and the breakfast was better than I ever expected, fresh fruit, full waffle bar, eggs, sausage, bacon and biscuits too! Wow great place for business, couples, family and friends!

"Great hotel!"

07/03/2016

I stayed for neither business nor pleasure -- it was necessity. I live in Eureka, and a skunk got under my home and sprayed. Breathing in my house -- NOT AN OPTION! lol I arrived after a long day and felt like a big cloud of green stink. The ladies at check in were very pleasant and efficient, and got me to my room quickly. Cookies were available, and good. Your room key gets you a 20% discount at the Marie Calendars next to the hotel. While checking in, I noticed a security camera display of the parking area. The monitor was huge and it was easy to see activity on the screen. My room was in the Garden. You need to use your room key to access the garden area. That entire area is non smoking and non pet friendly. It is a large courtyard with hot tub and koi pond, and some of the largest koi I have ever seen. The entire area is extremely well maintained and landscaped, and very relaxing. There is even coffee, tea, and hot chocolate available, and in the morning, pastries and juice, and a newspapers. The stay includes breakfast, and the items are rotated daily. Mini omelettes, french toast, biscuits and gravy -- and the gravy is very tasty! -- and waffles and available every day, with blueberry, strawberry or apple toppings and whipped cream. I believe it was six different types of coffee that were available, and two types of juice. Other standard options are also available. The room was very well appointed, with the sink/dressing/closet area behind a separate door, and the bathroom a door inside of there. The entry light is on a dimmer switch, and the mini fridge and microwave are hidden inside the lower area of the television. And the bed was just what I needed. DEFINITELY a great place to stay.

"BEST Western"

07/03/2016

After travelling around the western USA for a few months, and staying in many different places, this is the best place we've stayed yet. The front desk staff was friendly and upgraded us to a larger room with a fireplace and ocean view. The room (and entire hotel) was spotless, had a very comfortable bed and a nice, large bathroom. The included breakfast was fresh and tasty, with lots of options. The free parking was convenient to our room and the wifi signal was strong. Stay here, you won't be disappointed.

07/03/2016

This hotel is conveniently located near restaurants and shopping. Facility is very nice and rooms have plenty of room and are comfortable. Only negative was that there are not enough electrical outlets in the room for electronic devices, lights, etc., which is not unusual in hotels these days.

"Staff Is Fantastic - Hotel Itself Is Over Crowded "

05/03/2016

Stayed for 1 night Staff was exceptionally welcoming Rooms and beds are excellent comfort Parking was easy Amenties such as complimentary hot breakfast and pool/hot tub sounded like a great idea but never tried either, there was way too many people at any given time...it was truly overwhelming. So for the fact of not being able to take full advantage of amenties paid for in room-rate I do not see myself returning to this supremely comfortable hotel...strange I know but it was unbelievably crowded. We were thankful it was pet friendly, but it was over ran by screaming kids and not very well behaved barking dogs

"Clean, Comfortable & Courteous"

5
05/03/2016

The room was spotlessly clean and the beds comfortable. The sheets weren't cheap/rough but nice for the price of the room. The staff is super friendly! I asked to change my room at check in (I was sick and switched to 2 queen beds rather than 1 king). The room had been freshly painted and the front desk employee took the time to go to the room to make sure it didn't smell like paint fumes. It was fine and I appreciated this extra gesture. I don't eat breakfast so I can't comment on that but there were a lot of options -- much nicer than the continental breakfast you would expect. It was packed so get there early if you are a breakfast person. I'm a total hotel snob, I've never stayed at a Best Western. I'd definitely stay here again.

"Spacious Corner Room"

5
04/03/2016

This is my 2nd stay at this property in the last two weeks as I enjoyed the first very much. I love the BW whirlpool tubs and this corner rooms was even much more spacious than the last. Had a large wall bar area, fireplace, small balcony with sliding doors which looked out to an interior courtyard with hot tub and pond. Very quiet and comfortable. I would definitely only stay here when in Eureka-nice senior rate too! Also BW's are all so very spotlessly clean these days.

"So so"

03/03/2016

The staff was amazing. They realized we had a ground floor room next to the pool (before we did) and moved us to the upper floors, away from potential noise. It was still noisy with people wandering up and down stairs, and even someone coming home drunk at 2am. But that is the nature of hotels on major highways with good amenities like indoor pools for kids and dog friendly rooms. Just so so. Though the staff was helpful. One more thing - sorry to be so critical about this but we did have a good laugh. The decor, paint, curtains, art work, was pretty awful. The outside and the inside must have been designed by different folks!

"Monthly Family Fix Trip"

01/03/2016

Went up to visit daughter to get our "family fix" since she moved back to Eureka and we had the best stay. Room was wonderful. It was clean, wonderfully decorated and the breakfast bar was excellent. It had a wide selection and everything was fresh, especially the coffee. Staff could not of been more friendly and helpful. We even ran into a young man who works the night shift there that our children grew up with in school in Eureka. Thank you for such a memorable stay and since I know we will be back once a month for our family fix, we will definitely be staying here!

"A good stay in Eureka"

The staff was exceptional. The facility was well kept, clean and up to date. The near bye dining opportunities were great. The view of the bay was nice. I would stay here again and will recommend it to friends and family.

"First Question .....PET FRIENDLY? YES!!"

5
27/02/2016

We stayed here....because we could include our pet poodle, she's our family! You can only stay on the ground floor if you are travelling with a pet. Not my favorite, but we are used to getting the dog room. Very clean accommodation, decent size rooms, the next door room had heavy smokers, yes they were outside , but almost in front of our door. I had to close the door and windows....it was awful. Every time we stepped out they were smoking.....sorry but choked on their smoke. That's my only complaint about this nice hotel.....my suggestion....make a smoking area away from other paying guests or ban smoking from their property. All in all, would stay here again, on our return north. I hate being negative, but just relating our experience. Overall positive stay!

"Great hotel for work trips"

25/02/2016

Clean room with fridge, freezer, microwave, coffee pot, iron, ironing board, and blow dryer. Workout room, pool, Jacuzzi and location were great. Breakfast included freshly made waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, and oatmeal with all the toppings. Got discount for Shamus T bones and Maria Calendars.

"Another great Best Western"

23/02/2016

Top floor away from elevator. Great beds, dynamite breakfast...lots to choose from. Great staff. Nice hot tubs (2) and nice pool. Good deal. We have been traveling for several weeks and depending on tripadvisor for hotels. Good place with shopping right next door if you wish.

"Good hotel for family with kids"

5
23/02/2016

I booked two rooms for myself and five kids/teenagers. Plenty of parking, although a little tight. Quick, pleasant check in. More pleasant because there were freshly baked chocolate chip cookies - yay! Our rooms weren't ready (check in time was 4 and we got there around 3:30), so we zipped to the beach to wait it out. I asked the front desk for recommendations for a good beach and they directed me to a wonderfully private, easy to reach beach in Samoa. Location was great. Near decent restaurants, the mall, etc. The teenagers loved it. The rooms were spacious. The beds were very comfortable, the view out to the small koi pond was fine, they had good coffee, a microwave, mini-fridge, good quality products - lotion, soap, etc. All the basics but very nice. The breakfast was served from 6-10 and was very good. Tons of choices for all of us - eggs, sausage, bacon, bagels, toast, waffles, yogurt, juices, coffees, cereals, etc. I definitely will stay here again.

Great time and very clean hotel with room service from Marie Calendars next door and discount cards for the local Samoa Cook house and a hot breakfast in the morning to wake up to. We will be returning again really soon. I will recommend this hotel to my family and friends.

"Great Getaway"

20/02/2016

We came to Eureka to look at Humboldt State University and the surrounding area. The hotel and grounds were clean/well-kept. The staff was friendly and professional. They were extremely helpful. The breakfasts were delicious and well stocked. We were there on a holiday weekend and even though the hotel was packed, it was still reasonably quiet. I would definitely stay here again.

18/02/2016

We stayed twice at the Bayshore Inn on our road trip down the West Coast - once going down and then coming back home. Both times we found our room to be comfortable and the staff welcoming. The breakfast selection was excellent and the cookies in the lobby in the evening are addictive. Would highly recommend the hotel for a variety of types of travel.

"Fantastic facilities at good price"

18/02/2016

We stayed there several times in the last two years. Everything is great,spacious rooms, cleanliness and good customer services. Facilities are fantastic : two 24-hr gym rooms, two guest laundry rooms, pool and hot tubs. You can even get great deals if you visit at off-season.

13/02/2016

We enjoyed everything about this hotel, one of the best that we have stayed at. Check in and check out were easy. The breakfast is wonderful and plenty of room. Complementary newspapers are good. Great location next to the mall and easy access to travel north and south on 101. We have stayed here previously and will undoubtedly stay here again in the future.

"Perfectly fine place to stay"

12/02/2016

A decent, pet friendly place isn't always easy to find. On our annual trip south, we overnighted in Eureka. This hotel was clean and comfortable with secure parking for our loaded vehicle. Our dog was welcome. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Morning breakfast was varied and nicely laid out. The hotel was busy. No surprise as it's a good choice to spend the night.

"loud room"

02/02/2016

Stayed in this hotel didn't sleep because of loud banging noise in room # 225. It was clean and nice, however, sleep trumps it all at the end of the day. The hotel is at the beginning of town so you do have to drive into town for other venues. There is a Marie Calendars and an expensive steak house behind the hotel.

"Great stay"

31/01/2016

This hotel is located in a great area of town, close to shopping, close to food and gas. Its always clean inside and out. Staff is always very friendly and helpful.

Terrific hotel with a variety of rooms available. Grounds are immaculate and the garden area is complete with huge koi fish in the pond. Room was a Jacuzzi suite with both the Jacuzzi and a fireplace. Beds was perfect and extremely comfortable.. The only reason for the 4 rating is I was unable to use the fitness facilities due key problems. After twice getting the key, I gave up due ran out of time.

"Probably the best place to stay in Eureka"

4
05/01/2016

We have stayed in several other chain motels/hotels in Eureka over the years, one was even highly rated by AAA. All of them were grossly outdated, musty smelling, and some of their non-smoking rooms stank of cigarette smoke. Best Western Plus Bayshore Inn, is by far the nicest place we have ever stayed while in Eureka. The rooms are modern, updated, well maintained and very clean. The complimentary breakfast was tasty and well stocked. If you drive a large full size car, SUV or pickup you will find parking challenging, but manageable. Keep in mind this is Eureka, not San Francisco and the Best Western Plus Bayshore Inn is a motel/hotel and not the Westin (the likes of which you will not find in Eureka), but it is by far the best place to stay in town. We highly recommend it and will be staying there again the next time we are in town.

"Nice Economical Hotel"

04/01/2016

Easy check in, clean modern room, everything worked, WiFi was fast and reliable, staff were helpful. Hotel is just up the street from a supermarket. This is a well-run example of a Best Western, i.e., a nothing fancy, relatively low cost motel, but without the negative features one can expect in cheaper places.

My son and I, loved this motel except for the fact the spa, pool area and breakfast closed to early for us to enjoy and I had trouble getting into bed the first night because of my shortness. We enjoyed the fact our beloved lab could join us and it would be nice to have a larger place to potty them. Otherwise, we were very satisfied.

Stayed over New Year's and loved it. Room was spacious and clean, front desk staff very friendly and the free full breakfast was yummy and plentiful with plenty of tables for groups small and large to eat. A lot of parking is available. In room free Wi-fi was excellent, always working. Marie Callenders even delivers though they are located on the property.

"Convenient to what we needed..... although the walk to the Bay was interesting...."

4
01/01/2016

A good serviceable hotel. We stayed for 3 days while visiting the tall trees in the area. The rooms were clean and well kept. The breakfast (free) was good. The only problem with the hotel is there is a homeless encampment near the bay so that made walking on the paths down there interesting.... not bad but a little odd.... and they sometimes tried to help themselves to breakfast....

Very comfortable hotel with a beautiful private garden area. Good location for the Eureka area and all the natural wonder northern California has to offer. If you are willing to explore a little you will find a nice little park on the bay just a few steps from the hotel, it's a great place to watch the sun set if there isn't fog or enjoy the fog if there is.

Very helpful front desk who helped me with a room booked through Hotels.com. Required a phone call to the owner but all worked out for myself and my pet. Room was very clean and bright and cheerful. A real pleasure to land here after a long day on the road. Extra special soap & body wash, shampoo at this BW. Makes a hot bath or shower feel great! Decent amount of towels which were better than average thickness and actually white. Breakfast was well laid out, with lots of options. For their Dog Friendly option, they do give you a Baggie and some treats. However there is really no place to walk-only across the road a a strip mall. Not a problem for my dog as I came prepared with a roll of bags... but I'm surprised the mall owner allows this to continue. Generally a quiet hotel, although the walls are not sound insulated. I could hear the lady in the next room at night with her smoker's cough-woke me up. Next time I would wear ear plugs & suggest others consider doing so. Seems a good value for the money.

Thank you for taking time to tell us about your visit. We are glad that you and your dog were able to settle after the long day and Hotels.com mix up. I am sorry to hear that the clerks did not direct you to the grassy walking areas located on either side street of our facility. We hope the next time you are able to find them more quickly. We do look forward to a future visit.

I have been here a few times. I will definitely always come back to this hotel when I am on the coast. It is clean, very neat grounds, and beautiful décor. The staff is very friendly, and helpful. I love that they have a whole section that is private no kids no pets. It's super nice for a couple on a romantic trip.

"Hotel Snob that ??Eureka's Best Western"

15/12/2015

Decided to stay here on our way home to Marin from Oregon. The hotel advertised "in room jacuzzi" which sounded great to our old creaking backs. We were met by two friendly young ladies at the front desk who were very helpful and quick to get us checked in. The grounds were very pretty and clean with a Koi pond in the center of the hotel. The biggest surprise was the size of the room and the in room jacuzzi. It was huge! I could've done 3 cartwheels (ok, maybe not me but someone could!) across the room and there was enough room for two in the jacuzzi. The jacuzzi was also set up in the corner of the room so you had plenty of room without drenching everything in sight. There was a nice electric fireplace in the room also which was a nice little touch. Another nice convenience was having Marie Calendar"s basically in the same front parking lot and Shamus T Bones directly behind the back parking lot. I'll have to write a separate review for Shamus' but I will say it was an excellent dinner with a very friendly wait staff! Best Westerns may not be known for being a "luxury" or "romantic" hotel chain but I have stayed Luxury hotels that came up far shorter than this Best Western. I'll be the first to admit, I may have been a little judgmental (snobby) when it came to Best Westerns in the past but that is a mistake I am willing to admit and correct!

The Best Western Bayshore Inn, Eureka was a great place to stay. Friendly courteous staff, always helpful. Very clean rooms. And we travel with Pets so we were glad that they offered a Pet Friendly room. Close to several restaurants

Stayed here for 2 nights and proved a good choice. Decent size room, clean and well kept. Good breakfast and local restaurants or just a short drive into town for bigger choice. Staff were good as well. Must do is the bayside trail from the end of the road.

Our room had 2 Queen size beds and still felt spacious. We requested a room close to an elevator and our request was honored. We also had a view of the beautiful koi pond. I was expecting a cold continental type breakfast in the morning , and that is so far from the truth !! This hotel does a very nice hot buffet breakfast , bacon, eggs, the works ....and if you are running on the late end to breakfast , they still put out fresh hot food, they don't stop cooking 30 minutes before breakfast ends like many places.

Room had two beds -- cramped, dark, very small work table, no soft chairs. Lobby only for check in and out -- not available to guests for watching TV, fire, reading, conversing with others. Very clean and staff extraordinarily friendly and helpful, physical plant not up to expected standards

emilymbayshore, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Bayshore Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for taking time to tell us about your visit. I am sorry that things did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately, we do not have a lot of control on how the property was built or laid out, but we do work hard to provide a comfortable visit to all our guests. I am not sure if it was requested or looked into, but we do offer an array of room types to try and meet any traveling need. We hope you will try us again in the future.

Staff was very helpful at all times of the day and night. The hotel was clean and the room was very clean and updated. The Breakfast was Awesome, they have gluten-free items on request. The neighborhood had a few homeless hanging around but I never once seen them enter the grounds.

"Visiting the Redwood Country"

Well located. Good service. Adequate amenities since the purpose of the trip was to visit the Redwood Forests and only sleep in the hotel. Very good steak restaurant walking distance. Close to downtown and on US 101. Too many politically correct instructions all over the hotel and rooms, but I suppose that is California. NO Pets are allowed....not pet friendly.

emilymbayshore, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Bayshore Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for writing about your visit. We are glad you were able to get a good night sleep after your visit to the Redwoods. I am sorry about the signage; however, we are finding it hard to get compliance to policies without them. We would like to assure that every guest enjoys their stay, and that is why we offer the Pet friendly rooms and the Non-pet friendly rooms. We hope you come see us again should you come back to the Redwoods.

"Best Breakfast"

30/10/2015

We have stayed at many Best Western's, And not only are all aspects of the stay are excellent, but this is by far the best breakfast of any. They actually cook most of the food in their kitchen, not just heat it up. We prefer to eat there than going out to a restaurant.

emilymbayshore, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Bayshore Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for telling us about your stay. We are so glad that you enjoyed our breakfast as the girls who provide it do work hard to make sure all is fresh and well stocked. We hope you come again soon.

The Best Western in Eureka is a nice, new hotel. The rooms were very clean. It is located really close to Humboldt Bay and the Bayside Mall but there are lots of homeless folks in the area, especially along the bay shore trail.

24/10/2015

We were traveling with our dog and had stayed in so-so hotels up to our arrival in Eureka. This hotel looks like every other Best Western upon approach, but all those same olds flew out the window upon entering the lobby. The front desk staff greeted us warmly, with big smiles and good cheer. We asked about the pet friendly rooms available to us, and we were offered an escorted tour of 3 different rooms and locations, wow, thank you! Our room was huge, clean, not overly disinfected and beautiful. Really so impressed. The location was right off the main road, but was quiet and beautifully landscaped. Short walk to the water and great path to walk the dog or bike a distance. Pool, spa, sauna and workout room available. Breakfast was so good, lots of choices and well stocked, two rooms to sit down, so no mass of people stuffed into a small space. Shamus-T-Bones, a BBQ restaurant just down the block offered 10% off with your room key, and it was good eating. Marie Callander's offered 20%. This was one of the best hotels I have stayed in, I highly recommend this property.

"Very nice hotel. Too bad we only stayed 1 night"

23/10/2015

Stayed 1 night after an 8-hour drive up the coast from Oakland. We were hungry and tired when we arrived. The hotel room was nice and large, clean, comfortable. There is an elevator and that was very nice (get tired of carrying the suitcase up the stairs) We did not have any view from the room, but we were leaving early in the morning, so I did not check into other available rooms with a view of the bay. The hotel staff were helpful and friendly. There were a couple restaurants within a very short walking distance. Would happily stay here again.

If I have to stay away from home when I travel for work, there is no better place than this. The staff makes me feel like this is my home away from home. Thank you Best Western for taking such great care of me!

22/10/2015

I stay here often for work and it never fails the service always give me the green light to come back and stay again. The superstar of the property is Rachel A. And she believes in friendly customer service. Her coworkers in the evening are great and they are always helpful and cracking me up with humor. What a great place to stay especially in the back section if you are traveling on business and you need a quiet place to rest and recharge. I come here for work every month but I have plans to come here on vacation soon. Good job bayshore bravo!

After spending a day driving through the redwoods and the Avenue of the Giants we decided to stay in Eureka. We stopped at the Best Western Inn cuz it was the first inviting looking hotel coming in from the south. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating nice big clean rooms comfortable beds good breakfast easy access good location

19/10/2015

Our room was large, modern, and very clean with a king size bed and a fireplace. We stayed in the quiet section set aside for adults- with no children- and it was very peaceful. The complimentary breakfast buffet had a full selection of hot and cold items: yogurts and cereals to waffles and egg casseroles with breakfast meats. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again if we ever travel back to the Eureka area. The hotel grounds seemed safe enough, but the area is known to have a large homeless community nearby so I would not recommend an evening stroll outside the hotel property. All in all, a very nice place to stay at a reasonable price.

A very nice property, especially for the price. Well-located with lots of room and a great breakfast area. Gym is surprisingly nice, too (though the ventilation needed to be better). Pool area is especially swanky. Internet worked well; room had great water pressure; comfy bed; decent parking.

"Overall, a good stay"

18/10/2015

We stayed here for 2 nights on a road trip & had a king, non-smoking room on the 3rd floor of the original building. Breakfast has plenty of options to fill your stomach for a busy day of sightseeing. This was one of the quietest accommodations we're ever experienced while traveling, even though we were next to the elevator. Everyone was cordial & check in/out was efficient. Two concerns: 1.) water in the indoor/outdoor pool was so cold I couldn't use it & 2.) access to the courtyard with its koi pond & hot tub was not available because we didn't stay in the new building with its apparently higher room rates. This isn't clearly stated on their website & I think it's unreasonable to charge more for that. Will probably try the other BW in Eureka next time.

If you need pampering after a long drive, this is the place to go! The staff was friendly and very helpful, the location is good, the rooms are large, mine even had a fireplace, bar and Jacuzzi! The view of the bay is limited but the garden area and koi pond are beautiful and well kept up. Breakfast was very good. I loved the coffee, juice and pastries located by the elevators -- what a fabulous and convenient idea! This hotel should give lessons to other hotels on how to pamper their guests! I highly recommend it!

"Great Place to stay"

11/10/2015

I have nothing negative to say. I rated this hotel an excellent in every category. A view of the bay, private balcony, and a fireplace in the clean, modern, room makes it perfectly cozy. Free coffee (really good coffee) in multiple locations. Free hot breakfast. The general manager came to my rescue when I discovered I had left my car keys in the local restaurant the night before. She had my keys back in my hand in 20 min. I am so grateful for her help.

"Good place to stop"

10/10/2015

Nice place to stop. Quiet. I got there really late when it was dark, it's kind of in a sketchy part of town. Normally I don't like outdoor entrance places, but I felt safe, it was quiet. They upgraded my room. I'd stay there again.

The friendly staff make this place. Check in was great. The room was very nice and it was super clean. Breakfast was good but crowded. Move this hotel to a better location and it goes to a 4+ rating in a heartbeat. This was a great place for a quick stay on a redwoods trip. Security wise it needs better neighbors....

08/10/2015

We got back from a 4 night trip to Eureka to see the sights. I highly recommend this place. Be aware there are two different Best Westerns in Eureka and this is the one I would recommend. The other one didn't look as nice. Pluses: Good room rates Spotlessly clean rooms Good (fast) wifi Extensive breakfast selections Free local paper and USA Today Great walking trail behind the hotel Next to shopping mall and restaurants Excellent shower Friendly staff Very quiet Minuses Bed too soft for my taste Room cleaned at 5 p.m. (when we got back from sightseeing the maid was cleaning our room) From what I saw, this appears to be one of the nicest hotels in Eureka.

"Nice and not so nice"

08/10/2015

The motel was a nice one and the location was great, but there was sketchy moments at times. We were doing a mini PCH road trip and eureka was a stopping point for a night in late September. we were on the third floor corner room kinda far from the elevator with bags but close to the stairs and pool. When we check in and get to our non smoking room, a man was squatting smoking at the top of stairs which was close to our room. After dropping our stuff we decided to go to the mall and he was gone. We left to the mall (where my husband witnessed a shoplifting incident) maybe less than an hour and went back to our room and the guy was there again. Kinda made us not want to venture out again. The breakfast was nice and the room was clean. Unsure if we will be visiting eureka again, but if we did, it's possible we would stay again.

"Loved the pool room!"

07/10/2015

Always get a hotel with free breakfast! My kids loved it. Waffles with strawberry sauce and fruit. We enjoyed a morning walk to the bay. Next door to Marie Calendars. Koi in the pond. Great jacuzzi/ pool room with lovely hanging ferns.

"Good for overnight stay"

07/10/2015

Stayed overnight on our way from Portland to the coast. We arrived at approximately 9.30pm on a Sunday evening, tired and hungry. Check in was straightforward. Staff were helpful and friendly. Room was OK for an overnight stay. We'd booked a room with two beds and rollaway and I have to say the rollaway was very comfortable once we'd set it up. A bit of a tight squeeze for the three of us (three mature ladies) and our luggage but fine for just the one night. The restaurant/bar was due to close at 9.30 but the manager very kindly stayed open for us (we were very hungry!). Location was really good - easy access to the 101 but nothing much else in the local area. Breakfast was served in a separate room which wasn't too busy and there was a good choice of the usual items.

I can only say good things about this hotel. There were absolutely NO problems. Check in was a swift friendly experience. Everything needed was in the room. The beds were heavenly. Breakfast was full, complete, and delicious. Check out was a breeze. Extremely nice people running the operation.

The Best Western Bayshore hotel is a wonderful hotel. I was really surprised. This hotel has a beautiful layout. It is spacious with good parking. It has beautiful landscaping and a large Koi pond. There are two pools, one is a beautiful indoor pool and spa. The rooms are large and have new furnishings. The bed was comfortable and the room also has an electric fireplace that was a nice touch. The hotel is located between two nice restaurants and a mall is within walking distance. There is free breakfast in the lobby but I chose a free Continental breakfast that was offered in my section of the hotel. This hotel just does everything right and I definitely be back!

"Wow! This is a great place!"

We wish we could have stayed longer! Nicest place we have stayed in a while. Cookies and hot chocolate/tea/coffee at check-in. Comfortable beds. Very clean. The breakfast had a ton of options including bacon, eggs, waffles, sausage, bagels, toast, cereal, fruit, biscuits and gravy. They had it all! We wished we'd had time to swim - the pool was half indoors and half outdoors.
