"Really Fabulous Hotel"

StrollermomHK, Seattle, Washington 18/04/2021

This Best Western truly is one of the best small hotels I have stayed in. Check-in was very quick and Kiana very friendly and offered cookies! We traveled with a dog, so our 2 queen bed room (#119) was on the ground floor. For a "dog room" it was carpeted- which was a welcomed surprise since most other hotels we have stayed at with our dog were not carpeted- and the carpets were very clean. Upon entering the room, the first thing we noticed was the beautiful sweet- but not overbearing smell of apricots(?). Whatever it was it smelled very nice and clean. Shampoo, conditioner and body wash were provided in the shower- but there was no lotion, shower caps and other amenities. The heater was quite loud so we turned it off before we went to bed. We could hear the TV from the upstair room. The hotel is across the street from the river walk and a walkable distance to a local pub restaurant. The grounds were well taken care of. The pet area was also well maintained and doggy bags provided. Breakfast is served until 10am. There was quite a selection of hot breakfast items (take out due to COVID-19) offered and the many picnic tables on the premises made dining outside refreshing and pleasant. The staff at breakfast were very nice and polite. If we come through again, we will definitely stay here.

Nicole Rocha, General Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Thank you so much for great feedback. We are happy to see that you and your pet enjoyed your stay with us. We are always happy to see that all of our great amenities for our four legged guests are taken full advantage of. We look forward to seeing you and all your family again soon.

"Fabulous hotel"

Y3583RXCallie, San Francisco, California 15/04/2021

We are currently on our second night in this wonderful hotel. It may allow pets but you'd never know it: our room has no unpleasant smells to it. It is spotless, the beds are comfortable, the room large, the bathroom has a window that allows fresh air in as well as having a heat lamp above the shower/tub. Attractive hotel grounds. Terrific breakfast included (with proper COVID protections) and really exceptional staff. We've had a wonderful time here for our planned tour of the Avenue of the Giants. Highly recommended lodging.

Nicole Rocha, General Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Thank you so much for the great review! I am so happy to see that you appreciate the hard work the employee's put into making everyone stay here safe and as normal as possible. We are always happy to offer you a clean room and a hot breakfast here at the Best Western Country Inn.

User 08/04/2021

This Best Western was great. No issues, clean room and comfortable bed. Front desk service was quick and pleasant. She told me about free coffee and cookies in the lobby which was awesome. Just a few minute walk to restaurants. Pet friendly rooms and a nice dog run area available.

"Very Pleasant Experience!"

FisherFam2021, Folsom, California 05/04/2021

The Best Western Country Inn is a hidden gem! I researched several hotels in the area before choosing it for a one-night stay on a northern CA road trip my family and I were taking through the redwood coastal area. I chose it primarily because of its reviews and the fact that they were still providing a hot breakfast using Covid-19 compliant measures. Several other facilities seemed to be using Covid as an excuse not to provide a hot breakfast despite the fact that restaurants in the area are open again at limited capacity and yet their prices were not adjusted accordingly. Both my husband and I were very impressed with everything about the facility, from the appearance and maintenance of the grounds and the room to the staff and the hot breakfast provided. The personnel were courteous, friendly and efficient and everything was clean and well-maintained. We opened a Best Western Rewards account that gave us a great rate and the value was excellent...highly recommend and will stay here again if in the area in the future!

Nicole Rocha, General Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
This is such a great review. In such difficult times we are proud to offer our guests a hot breakfast and clean accommodations. My staff and I appreciate your amazing feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back to our Hotel again soon.

"Friendly staff and clean"

AdventureMama26, Union City, California 19/01/2021

Hotel was easy to find, nice big bright sign. Rooms were very spacious and clean. They even offered the warm light in the restroom. Room had microwave, fridge and hair dryer. It also had a space for sitting:eating. Check In was fast and efficient and most of all quick. Breakfast was a grab and go, but had plenty of choices, hot and cold. Overall this stay was wonderful and left my family recharged for our long drive back home.

"Some good, some bad"

rschiller, Garden Grove, California 03/01/2021

This is a basic, middle-of-the-road motel. Some of the goods include -room was clean and comfortable -good freeway access -one of the few hotels where there is a fridge and a decent sized freezer Some of the bad: -the woman at the front desk was quite unfriendly and didn't seem to want to be there (I get it but don't show that to your guests) -the bathroom was way too small for the size of the room. There is a lot of wasted space in the main bedroom where the room could have been expanded. -there was a very heated argument between some of the guests near our room. I alerted the woman at the front desk (see above) who said she would "check it out" but didn't appear to. The whole incident made us feel unsafe -our room was near the road and was noisy.

Nicole Rocha, General Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. Our hotel values your feedback and aims to provide our guests with a safe and comfortable stay. We appreciate you providing insight on what we can do to better meet your needs going forward.

Easy to find even in the pouring rain. Easy check in. Great modern room. Amazing hot breakfast served by real people from behind plexiglass. You take it CK to your room to eat. Very clean. Lots of hot water. Best price for Bestwestern in this part of the 101.

"BW Fortuna"

User 29/10/2020

This hotel had a clean, comfortable room. It is also in a good location. The staff was very helpful. I appreciated the proximity to the river walk trail. This was a spur of the moment trip. If we had planned we would have packed our swimsuits as the pool and hot tub are open by reservation and are partially indoor. I understand they clean in between each use. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

"Clean, comfortable Room"

Wildwoodatheart, Santa Rosa, California 21/10/2020

I"ve stayed at a lot of BW hotels. This one was pretty much what you would expect. I had a reservation, and my room was upstairs in the back of the hotel parking lot. So, it was relatively quiet back there. I traveled with my dog, so it was a bit difficult having to trek up and down the stairs with her when she needed to relieve herself. But, there was a nice grassy area just across the parking lot, as well as a rocky area just downstairs where people could smoke. I did not see any bags to clean up after your pupper, but luckily I had plenty of my own. The room decor was typical BW. The bed was comfortable enough for one night. Wifi was ok. The breakfast portions were extremely small. I don't know if I could have asked for more, but I definitely felt like I got a kid's meal. Oh well. It was fine for one night.

Nicole Rocha, Owner at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review

"Excellent Best Western"

OntheRoadNorCal, Northern California 10/10/2020

The Best Western Country Inn in Fortuna had good marks on TripAdvisor, so we decided to try it driving Ashland, OR to Bay Area and were glad we did. A. Re Covid-19, I wiped the entire room with alcohol wipes which were SPOTLESS when I was done. Brava! room cleaners! B. The king bed and pillows were heavenly. We actually overslept. C. Overall property was well kept and attractive, EZ check-in and out.

"Good stop on a roadtrip"

RedRockLover2007, Temecula, California 16/09/2020

This hotel is like most Best Westerns, in that the rooms are clean and good to sleep in for a night or so while travelling. We stopped at this hotel on our roadtrip up to Oregon and back. This was the only hotel on the trip with its pool open. The process was simple. You go up to the front to schedule a time, and you come back at that scheduled time for the staff to open the door for you. The staff cleans the pool areas between guests, and you have the whole pool area to yourself. The WiFi was fast enough for me to scroll social media. The rooms are simple and well-kept. The hotel itself is not too far from the Grizzly Creek Redwoods State Park just south from there. To conclude, the hotel was fine for my uses.

Nicole Rocha, Owner at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the review. I'm happy to see that you enjoyed our clean rooms and free WiFi. We look forward to the next time you are in the area.

"Clean and comfortable."

User 11/09/2020

Staff was courteous and did a great job to keep guests safe during early COVID opening. Room was very clean And breakfast was modified to takeout boxes to go back to our room with. Location was great, off the main roads, so it was quiet.

"Escape the heat and smoke!"

User 07/09/2020

We decided last minute to head to the coast. Lucky to find a room in Fortuna prior to Labor Day weekend. Loved the location on the Eel River. Very peaceful. The Best Western was clean and comfortable and the virus protocols were in place. We didn't want to leave! So the front desk clerk found us a cancellation for one more night. We will return, no doubt about it!

"Comfortable- No complaints"

tmdorow, Granite Bay, California 22/08/2020

We were there only one night, had a downstairs room toward the back of the property. Quiet- a Sunday night. One nice thing about BW's is they (almost) always have a microwave and refrigerator. This was great for us as we had lunch leftovers that we could heat for dinner. Also helpful in the morning. Per COVID, we were asked to sign up for a time we wanted to go get our breakfast. They had both hot and cold options- we pointed and were served. Then- took back to our room though there is a nice grassy area with a picnic table but it was chilly. Sipped on our coffee while reading the paper and then reheated our breakfast. This was fine- we stayed at another BW ( plus) and they just gave us a paper bag with cheese and crackers, a granola bar and a vbottle of water, even though they had two restaurants on site! So- we were pleased here. Room was clean ( I wiped it down anyway) and bed comfortable. The ocean is nearby in Ferndale which was a nice afternoon pastime.

"Comfortable and quiet near Redwoods"

User 13/08/2020

This was a really clean and nicely appointed large room. If I were traveling through this area again to visit the Redwoods I would stay here again. My only recommendation would be not to check in late a night like we did because parking was a little sparse and you might be a distance from your room.

"truck stop with bone-rattling noise"

436ee, New Haven, Connecticut 09/08/2020

On the map, Fortuna may look like a pleasant base for exploring the natural beauty of the area. But the Best Western Country Inn is in effect a truck stop. The night I arrived, a huge refrigerated truck (Vistar Transportation) parked right opposite the reception. The cooling aggregate was running on and off, and was so noisy that the vibrations rattled and buzzed throughout the property, even behind closed doors. According to the hotel staff, the trucker stays here once a week, and they cannot / do not want to get him to park his truck at a distance because he is an essential worker. My thought: we all benefit from refrigerated transport and owe gratitude (and more) to essential workers, but that does not give trucking companies license to use such unnecessarily noisy equipment, and then park it right next to where a hundred other people are trying to sleep. Best Western declined my request to cancel the first night of my booking.

"Terrible customer service July 18th 9pm"

User 19/07/2020

so my headlight went out on my motorcycle and we to best Western at dusk. Booked with priceline and the girl at the counter said sorry we are full. I said sorry i have a reservation. She said they shouldn't have booked it and I would have to deal with their customer service she couldn't help me. I said I am guaranteed a room but she sounded like a broken record or an automated message and refused to find us a room elsewhere (which is hotel policy everywhere in the world) or to even help us find a hotel. Someone needs to train this staff how to deal with polite customers.

Nicole Rocha, Owner at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
I'm so sorry about your issue with trying to check into our hotel. I will make sure that we review all policies to ensure that we are providing superior customer care like Best Western is known for. Please don't hesitate to contact us if there is anything further we can do for you.

Surprisingly nice updated furniture & appliances. Place is a good stopping point between Redwoods & Eureka. I'd stay here again. Though would be nice if BestWestern had a stronger rewards benefits for someone that works nights and need a decent checkout time.

bunk1976, Las Vegas, Nevada 06/06/2020

Very pleased with this hotel. Room was clean and beds were very comfortable. Didn't get to use the pool because of the virus and missed having a hot breakfast, but can't blame the hotel for that. Would definitely stay here again.

"One of the best rooms on our trip"

Steve F, Nunica, Michigan 13/04/2020

Good size room,four place table with chairs, very comfortable bed. TV remote was in a clean sleeve and it didn't work but was promptly swapped out by a friendly staff. Some road noise as we were near the front. Very nice place to stay.

"Contact High"

Cheryl J, Allyn, Washington 08/03/2020

If you LOVE to get a contact Marijuana high, while getting poor service at the front desk, this is your motel. Our room reeked of a very strong Marijuana smell. When I went back to office to explain to, Katie I believe her name was, the issue as well as see if they had another downstairs room we could have I told nothing else was available downstairs since my wife has had a stroke is unable to climb stairs. I was also told that they have a strict no marijuana on the premises policy and they have people who walk around and enforce it. I found that to be funny as I walked past two people smoking a joint on my way to the office. I don't care if people get stoned, it's legal for God's sake, but I don't want it in my NON-SMOKING room. Not to mention the 5 parking spaces in front of room were filled with trailers with quad runners on them. Why they didn't have them park those on the other side of the parking lot on the side of the other building, instead of in front of the rooms, is beyond me. Breakfast was good and the check-out person was good as well.

"Real throwback from the 70's and 80's!"

B2ZMoab, Moab, Utah 12/02/2020

This really brings back the memories of traveling in the 70's and 80's with the family. Was really surprising to see one of these motor lodges in such good shape. It is well kept for clean appearance. The room was OK. Dirty carpet - can't tell until you get your feet wet then gross! The water pressure at shower was severely lacking. But the rest of the room looked fine Overall, we would stay here again.

I'm sorry about the carpet in your room we will make sure that it gets taken care of right away. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay here though and look forward to your next visit.

"Good place to stop for a night - A bit noisy"

Smokeyham, Santa Clara, California 01/02/2020

This motel has the typical Best Western amenities (fridge, microwave, bathroom with bathtub). The room was clean and the bed comfortable. I liked that they have gone away from the individual shampoo bottles to more environmentally friendly, European style, dispensers in the shower area for shampoo and shower gel. It was nice that they have a setting in the ‘fridge where it is turned off (so you don't have to listen to the compressor noise), and this also saves energy since many guests do not use the fridge, but you have the option to turn it on if you wish. The front desk staff member was pleasant and provided a menu for the adjacent “Funky Monkey” restaurant, which is two minutes walk away and a good option for dinner. I visited on a rainy weekday evening in January. The motel was quite busy with crews from a tree maintenance company. No problems there, but as others have noted, the walls are very thin, so regular conversations and the sounds of TVs at moderate volumes were very easy to hear. There were several picnic tables outside, and I wonder if people would gather on nice summer evenings, with noise levels being quite high? Wifi had decent speed (around 5 Mbps – which is fine for Netflix, etc.). The breakfast was good with eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, etc. Overall, a decent place to stop for the night if travelling along 101.

"Nice clean rooms, recently updated, but weak shower pressure and lack of food at breakfast knocks it down"

bookwerm, Santa Rosa, California 08/01/2020

Had a chance to finally fit in a few days of fun with the family in Fortuna before everyone went back to work school etc., so decided to pop up to old Eureka area from Santa Rosa to check it out a bit, as we had a blast visiting the past summer. Found this Hotel, at a good rate, with very nice indoor/outdoor heated pool for my son and his friend to goof around in, and lots of stuff nearby to do. Room we got had two rooms, one with a Queen and small TV, the other with the King, a table, a bigger tv, with actual door that closed, but no couch of recliner. Put the boys into the back room, we kept the front, worked out well, and was much less than renting two rooms, and I am a cheap ass. When we entered the what appeared to be a very clean room, the smell of the cleaning products was overwhelming! Had to open all the windows and crack the door, and even after 2 days, it was still be stenchy. You get used to it, worst was coming back after being gone. They need to stop using such stinky product, that is for sure. Other room bother was you could not set the wall ventilation unit to just leave the fan ON.. even though it had positions for On/Off/Auto, the On didn't keep it on.. so to keep air moving in the room we would have to flip it back and forth on the temperature, which was annoying. Quibbles I had were that they had NO FOOD on a Friday morning at 915AM on a non crowded day, took 20 minutes to get food back out, and all I can think is that they lost track, or didn't watch, because it wasn't one thing out, it was most all the hot food. Once they stocked it, was tasty if limited breakfast buffet, with waffle, scrambled eggs, potatoes, biscuits, gravy, etc. on top of cereal, etc. And only other quibble was an anemic weak ass piddly little shower,.. if you set it on massage, it dribbled out! And on needle spray, more like rapid drips. Sad. Bed was soft, but supportive, like it was soft due to a topper vs a mushy mattress.

Look, we're rating a Best Western here, not the Ritz... and for that it gets 5***** It's clean safe and good location. Check-in was easy and they (mostly) accommodated my very early check-in (thank you). Beds were comfortable, the towels on the plusher side and the shower worked well.

"Fortuna Discovered"

We decided to stay in Fortuna while visiting Eureka. Good choice. BW Fortuna is a great location. Very good breakfast that saved having to go out. Very clean. We'll stay there again. Might go up to Arcata BW as well.

"Awesome Stay - Staff, Breakfast, Rooms"

walteilers, Ashburn, Virginia 09/12/2019

Thanks so much for taking care of me yet again. My wife and I always love to stay at this hotel because it just keeps getting better. Can't wait to come back. The staff is very accommodating from the front desk awesome folks to the young ladies working hard to feed us every morning.

"A great hotel to stay at!"

User 29/11/2019

This hotel is well maintained and we love it for so many reasons. The staff are always really friendly and the rooms are very clean. They have a pool and hot tub. They are pet friendly and you can walk along the riverbar on a path with your dog. The lobby has been remodeled since I came here last and it's modern and inviting. They also have lots of options for breakfast such as yogurt and granola, bacon, bagels, pancakes, waffles, etc. I also really like that they have a yogurt dispenser and they really seem to make a lot of effort to cut down on plastic (ex. dispensers in the shower for shampoo, conditioner, etc. instead of plastic bottles). Eel River Brewing company is also within walking distance if you want to walk and to lunch/dinner or have an adult beverage. An all around great place to stay!

"Book online"

ecejeanne, Brentwood, California 25/11/2019

This was a well maintained Best Western. Yea there are still two beds in the room. There is a nice walk across the street. Staff are friendly and breakfast was very good for a Continental type breakfast. Be sure to book online as the rate is much better. We booked just the day before the first time and less than 1 hour the second time. We saved almost $40 each night by booking online directly with Best Western.

"What a treat."

User 18/11/2019

This hotel is not fancy, just basic but it is one of the nicest BWs we stay at. The bed is so comfy, room clean, breakfast standard but good and even when it's crowded it's quiet. I don't know why but people seem to be more considerate here. There's a nice pool and a grassy area with picnic tables under large trees. Usually reasonably priced.

"Best Hotel in Fortuna"

User 20/10/2019

We love the area and this hotel is clean, accommodating, and in a beautiful location. We love this Best Western Country Inn because the staff is always pleasant, the rooms are spacious and it is a quaint country inn near the redwoods. We have day tripped from this location going east to the Van Duzen River Redwoods, going south into the Avenue of the Giants Redwoods, north to Arcata for a Humboldt Crabs baseball game or the Eureka Zoo. Fortuna has Antique shops and the Eel River Brewing company. Going West we have visited small town Loleta and Victorian village Ferndale. Ferndale Pizza company is terrific. There are other hotels in this area, But this one is much better than the others.

"Best breakfast!"

food53, Nanaimo, british columbia canada 10/10/2019

We stayed here on our way down the 101 for one night. Large rooms and the breakfast is awesome. This property is clean and very well maintained. We travelled with our pet and is ideally set up for pet friendly. Great for a one or two night stop over.

"Surprises this year!"

Gale W, Minden, Nevada 30/09/2019

We have stayed at this hotel yearly for a week for the last 5 years. This year when we walked into the lobby it was completely renovated. WOW, what a surprise! The newly remodeled Breakfast area is awesome, very roomy and inviting. We ended up showing up a day early and they were able to get us a room that would allow us to stay in to meet our reservation for the rest of the week, NO MOVING - yay! Thank you Katie. The next day we asked for an extra table and chair so my husband and I could both have work areas. Less than 2 hours later, surprise, table and 2 chairs. Thank you Jason in Maintenance. The staff are all very friendly and ready to help make our stay the best ever. They also accommodated our 2 dogs. Thank you!

"Lovely room, comfortable accommodations!"

cynbose, Los Alamitos, California 21/09/2019

Nicely kept property with generously sized rooms and comfortable beds! Additionally, our room had a very generous bathroom counter with enough room for 2 dopp kits! Staff was courteous on check in. Breakfast offered was good though the layout/set up of the breakfast room was awkward for seating. Only complaint was tv... network stations did not come through with consistent sound or picture. When I called office to inquire, the response was acknowledged and I was told that had been happening for awhile.. may be cable provider's fault but annoying all the same. Overall feel like this is a good place to stay if you are ever in the Fortuna area!

"Stay here on every visit"

Gloria W, Santa Barbara 12/09/2019

Very nice place. Confortable, quiet,clean, close to where we what to go, easy to get to, and we sleep extremely well. The staff is very helpful and polite. It is good for a motel breakfast compared to other places we have stayed..

"Bring home the bacon"

E6925RRjohns, Modesto , Ca, United States 04/09/2019

Our stay was great. The remodel was nicely done. However, the bacon now being served for breakfast seems a little strange in flavor. What is your source? Great variety of food choices. Thanks, JOhn Scheuber

"Reasonable, but not great"

User 02/09/2019

Location is convenient for travelers. Receptionist was efficient yet unwelcoming and cold. Hotel was close to full. A group of people were celebrating something / making noise in the parking area. My wife felt uneasy. Partly because of people we saw in Eureka (few miles away). They left before 11PM. Room is small but with good amenities. No nightlight. A bit too small bathroom. Almost clean. Low water pressure. Efficient and quiet AC. Good mattress and good sleep quality. Could not tell what the normally wrinkled cover on the top of the bed was and if it is washed. If yes, then this is a nice feature, if not, then strike last sentence :-) Noise from outside: rooms too close to parking area.

"Shouldn't advertise you have a gym!!!!"

cessily h, English Riviera, United Kingdom 31/08/2019

The hotel was fine, clean and comfortable. The only issue we had was that amongst the facilities listed was a gym/workout room.... I guess it's not important to many people, but it is to our son.... this gym/workout room is a mile away with no pedestrian footpath!!!.... hardly convenient and very doubtful should be listed at all.

"Definitely The BEST Western Inn"

User 31/08/2019

The buildings and parking lot are beautiful. The look of it feels like a home. My room looked and smelled clean! It was a very nice room I ended up taking pictures because it was so nice. If you stay at a hotel or Inn that offers complimentary breakfast then you may know it can be a bit awkward. For me, I was there alone and I did not feel uncomfortable at all, in fact it was the first breakfast of gone to where the other diners were not staring at me the entire time I made my food. I personally feel it's because this BW gives off such good energy everyone just minds their business and focuses on enjoying their stay. Just my guess lol also the food was so very delicious. 5 stars is exactly what I'd give this location.

"Excellent Stay"

Sharon S, Sonoma, United States 29/08/2019

Highly recommend! Super clean hotel both inside and out. My room was huge! Friendly staff and a good breakfast including eggs, sausage, potatoes and tortillas. Also bagels, pancakes, waffles and the other standard items. Pool is covered.

"The very best Best Western +"

Raymond M, Antioch, California 16/08/2019

This Best Western has some of the most excellent staff members of any hotel. They are extra helpful, polite and knowable. The rooms are extra clean and neat. There breakfast is an excellent experience. You can have every thing from Eggs, Potatoes, sausage, bacon, yogurt from a machine, waffles, biscuits and gravy, all kinds of toast, bagels, sweet rolls, and the list goes on.. The Kitchen Dinning area is newly redesigned and is as good as any of the more high class hotels. This is probably one of the best, Best Westerns in the United States

"Eureka getta away"

sumrwiners, Carmichael, California 11/08/2019

We like staying in Fortuna instead of Eureka because the fog usually is less there. Also it us closer to redwoods and Ferdale and the ocean Good restaurants within walking distance. Liked the pool and soa area. Half the pool us inside and the other half is outside.

"Reservations mean nothing"

losborne2019, Texas Gulf Coast, Texas 04/08/2019

Our reserved room was not available upon ariival and to make it worse the clerk was rude and insistant the we booked a one bed room rather than double queen (3 guests). Had to prove ourselves with condirmation and screen shot of reservation. Ended up with a rollaway being brought in. Check out clerk was friendlier and adjusted the room charge slightly. Would advise calling ahead to confirm even with reservation.

"Good hotel in the middle of nowhere "

jcn_uk, London, United Kingdom 01/08/2019

After reading so many bad reviews about Eureka, which would be a more natural stopover around he redwoods area, I decided to skip and stay in Fortuna. And I picked a safe choice: the Best western Country Inn. It's is a standard BW - clean large rooms, basic but satisfying breakfast, and nothing more or less. The only interesting notice was the incompetence of the check-in person: despite having my credit card and my passport in hand, and me telling her my name, she proceeded to check me in under another name (initials AM, while mine are JN), and I only recognized the error because she try to charge me the wrong rate. We laughed about it, but I am not sure if this is the kind of people that I want handling my credit card. At any rate, just a mild annoyance. Overall the hotel is good. The only downside is that Fortuna is a dot in the map. Next time I will take my chances with Eureka.

"Another BW Winner!"

Colette Y, Chico, California 30/07/2019

Another one of the better Best Westerns that we have stayed at. Easy access from the freeway but not so close that we could hear any freeway traffic noise. The staff was very accommodating and the room was nicely layed out and comfortable! They did their best to get us checked into our room as early as possible. Plus they met all of our special requests. We stayed 3 nights and the room was cleaned and re-stocked each day. Another Best Western winner!

"Great place and dog friendly!!!"

User 24/07/2019

Pros: Dog-friendly (doesn't have a weight limit or breed restrictions) Reasonable fee to have your dog there, which I really appreciate Clean and nice pet relief area and nice walking area across the street where you can walk your dog by the river Very clean rooms Nice pool/hot tub area Walking distance to Eel River Brewery Walking trail across the street if you want to go on a walk or run Friendly staff Continental breakfast included Reasonably priced Spacious rooms Cons: Dispensers of shampoo/conditioner/body wash in shower make you press several times to get out a small amount of product. I do love that they went away from plastic bottles through in order to be more environmentally friendly so huge props to that!!! The coffee wasn't very strong, although I feel this is true for most hotels Overall, I would rate this a 4.5 or higher and I would definitely stay here again since the pros definitely outweigh the cons by a lot.

This is a go to for us while traveling up the coast from CA, great access for dogs across the street from the river. Awesome restaurants EEL river brewery and Double D's! Steak house. New breakfast area is beautiful in the hotel.

"Clean, comfortable, safe."

GinkgoPhoto, San Francisco, California 09/07/2019

A pet friendly lodging, this Best Western was clean with well maintained grounds and friendly staff. While dogs are not allowed in the flower beds and lawns, there is a small grassy area at one end of the building set aside as a dog bathroom. Dog baggies provided. It is also close to a gravel trail alongside the river which was a great place to walk our dog. The beds were comfy, the breakfast was excellent with many options (get there early for sausages and pancakes!). There is also a generously sized pool, partially covered. It was an ideal stopping point for us on our road trip. Would stop here again.

"Adequate "

Joe58156, Roanoke, Virginia 09/07/2019

This is an average Best Western hotel. The room is clean, the breakfast is OK, There's a pool, everything is fine. A good place to stay at a fair price. Nothing special, but everything was fine. Our room was near the road, and the walls are quite thin. Thus, it was a bit noisy first thing in the morning. Perhaps a room near the back would be quieter.

"True country experience"

Penny L, Post Falls 19/06/2019

Looking out to a field with cows happily grazing in the sunlight made breakfast a truly relaxing experience. Plus, the food was great! I enjoyed everything but not having an elevator to the 2nd floor. Climbing stairs not in my book of favorites at 69.

John S, Oroville 03/05/2019

at least 10 state workers stayed there the same nights those who booked on one date got the legal state rate. those who booked days after the ones who got the state rate got a "summer rate increase that the state will not reimburse us for. So at least 4 of us who stayed the same nights as others in our group pay more that is not reimbursable. RIP OFF Manager will not accomodate the 4 over charged

"What a dump"

User 22/03/2019

This was billed as family friendly with a full hot breakfast. Do not stay here! The pool was disgusting. There is NO hot breakfast and even their continental breakfast is stale and pitiful. EVERY night except the last night was like spring break in the parking lot with drunk, loaded idiots screaming, laughing and singing until all hours. The walls are paper thin and you can hear EVERYTHING. Paid top dollar based on reviews. I'm convinced they are either old reviews or the drunk idiots who had a different kind of vacation in mind.

This place is very clean, staff is efficient and friendly. Location is great close to the Brewery for dinner and Starbuck in the morning.

"Rip Off Alert"

CaptainDrewby, Portland, Oregon 31/01/2019

This hotel is NOT deserving of a Best Western flag. Cold Showers, 6AM Noise, stayed 3 nights and they couldn't remake the beds? Breakfast is a joke... all for $102 per night? Then when I reported the problems, they offer me points, not an adjustment to my bill? The crazy part is that the hotel was at least 90% full every night I was there... so obviously they can afford to spend some money. Cheap owner. Go stay somewhere else.

"Great place to stay"

Christy M, San Francisco, United States 29/01/2019

"Corporate Needs to Intervene!"

User 02/01/2019

I will not be spending my money here until there a more qualified manager. I witnessed the hotel manager treating the employees here terrible especially one in particular. Corporate needs to intervene because I have witnessed some major labor laws being broken. I tried calling the hotel manager to address my concerns and one of the front desk associates told me that Lynn (THE ONLY MANAGER) only works a couple of days a week and they weren't sure when she'd be back! I've never heard of such a thing. Last time I checked, management typically gets a set salary and are required to work minimum 40 hours a week. Get your act together Best Western! I witnessed hourly employees running around busting their butts while your lazy manager is no where to be found.

"Convenient stop in Redwood Country"

SageTraveler, San Diego 28/10/2018

You simply cannot go wrong w/ a Best Western. Originally, we made reservations at the BW in Garberville, then, found this Inn by accident. It was more affordable, so we changed our lodging. PROS: Friendly staff; satisfying (free) breakfast; clean, modern rooms. CONS: You never know who'll be upstairs, tramping around in the early morning, or checking in at midnight next door. We got both. Walls are thin. Book an upstairs, corner room. STAFF: Very helpful, especially Jason, who took a quick look under the hood of my car, and relieved me of my concerns (we'd been hearing noise, with a burnt, rubber smell). Thanks to Jason, we completed our road trip with peace of mind. We shall return.

FriarTuck1943, Ontario, Canada 23/10/2018

Great little basic motel. We asked for a room on the main floor as we cannot do stairs and there is no elevator. We were given a room and were able to park in front of it. Lady at front desk gave us directions to a nearby restaurant.. (Eel River Brewing Company). The food was good as was the IPA. Only problem with food was burger had nothing on it other than a patty and a bun. Also, every time the front door was opened, a wind blew through the restaurant.

We always try to use Best Western motels when we travel and have never had been disappointed before. We stopped here for one night after a long, tiring day. We just looked for a BW assuming it would be nice and clean. We were not aware and the clerk did not tell my husband as he was registering that this was a pet-friendly establishment. We had 2 rooms. As soon as we entered one I couldn't help but notice that it smelled like dogs had been there. We then entered the room for our daughter and the odor wasn't as bad but it too smelled like a dog had been there. We were tired and didn't want to drive further that day so she switched rooms with us. I brought back onions from my dinner and had them in the room to help cover the dog smell. Even the beds had dog odor. My husband mentioned it to the clerk and was told that dogs are not allowed in that building but he saw someone with a dog on a leash come out of a room close to ours. Now, when we ask for non-smoking rooms we will have to ask for non-pet rooms. The rooms looked nice but I would only recommend this motel to someone travelling with animals because the smell was horrible. We didn't attempt the breakfast for fear that animals were allowed there too.

I appreciate your feedback I will use it to make improvements at our hotel where it is needed. I do apologize that you had a bad experience at our hotel, we never want our guest leaving with a bad experience that we were not able to resolve before check out, I do apologize for the pet odors in your rooms. We are a pet friendly hotel and we do have pet friendly rooms only. I try and make sure to take care of our pet rooms so this is not a problem .Unfortunately sometimes there are a few cases in which some rooms need a little more TLC then others. in any case I will make sure that we take if this problem right away. As for breakfast pets are not allowed in the lobby unless they are a service animal .We are remolding our breakfast area and lobby at the beginning of November. I do hope that you come back and visit us again. so we can have another opportunity to provide you with a better experience. if I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me anytime. Thank you!

"A great hotel in which to stay, especially for an overnight stay."

LoveAfricaLincoln, Lincoln 09/10/2018

My wife and I had been travelling in the US, and so made use of a number of hotels. On our journey back to our starting airport, we made an overnight stop at the Best Western in Fortuna; what a great decision that was! This hotel excelled above any other we have stayed in during the past two weeks. The welcome at reception was great with offers of drinks and cookies, the room was a delight, large and spacious with large and comfortable beds. The facilities in the room were wonderful, our night was quiet, and breakfast the following morning was such a delight, with so many multiple choices. This hotel knows how to treat customers as kings and queens!

Thank you for the great review! We are so happy that your stay with us here at the Best Western Country Inn was memorable. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

"One night stay"

User 09/10/2018

Great stay... clean and great spacious room. Breakfast was great too. Indoor outdoor pool, very quiet room and very comfortable bed. The price was great also. Didnt have to worry about car. Been on the road for 10 days and this definitely was in top 2 of hotels we stayed at for not breaking the bank.

LynnJ978, General Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the great review. I'm glad you enjoyed our hot, complementary breakfast and year round pool. We look forward to seeing you again.

"Comfortable stay"

G76NI, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom 02/10/2018

Stayed one night as a stop over while driving to Sonoma. Large, clean room with very comfortable bed. Microwave and fridge with freezer compartment in room. WiFi worked well and breakfast was adequate buffet style.

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay here with us at the Best Western Country Inn in Fortuna. We hope to see you again especially after our remodel of our lobby and breakfast area to check out our new look.

"A Trip to the Emerald Triangle"

Earl W, San Bernardino, United States 02/10/2018

Pleasing grounds, rooms were nice and comfortable, staff was attentive, breakfast was tasty. Great access to the river trail and walking distance to the brewery. Would stay again, only downfall, is I thought the webpage mentioned a gym, which I never found. Maybe I misread.

LynnJ978, General Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the great review! I'm glad to see that you enjoyed your stay here at the Best Western Country Inn in Fortuna. As for the gym we don't have a gym on our property but we do have a deal with a local gym that our guests can use for free. Just inquire at the front desk on your next stay with us.

"Dog Friendly, large peaceful rooms."

clamdiger2, Norco, California 01/10/2018

This was a last minute late night booking. The hotel staff was friendly. That hotel was w dog friendly. Lots of room for your pouch to run around in. The rooms were large and they were green friendly clean comfortable beds, fridge and microwave. The Pool was 1/2 inside and 1/2 out. Breakfast included waffles, eggs, sausage and biscuits and gravy. Self serve. I will differently stay here again when passing though. No elevator so if you can do one flight of stairs might want to stay on the bottom floor.

LynnJ978, General Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the great review! I'm so happy that you and your entire family enjoyed our property. We look forward to seeing you again when you come to visit us in the Redwoods.

"Clean, neat, nice people..."

ACEP925, Pleasanton, California 30/09/2018

Exactly what I expect from a Best Western. Although the property looked older on the outside, the rooms seemed relatively modern. The breakfast was more than continental fare. This was a reliable stop over.

LynnJ978, General Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the review! We are glad you enjoyed our spacious rooms and our hot breakfast. We look forward to seeing you again.

"Nice place"

Dan M, Portage 23/09/2018

Nice place. Clean rooms with nice beds. Great quality amenities. Great breakfast many choices. Professional staff. Thankyou. Many places don't have an overall great travel experience, we found everything here was thoughtful and well done.

"Undiscovered Jewel"

User 21/09/2018

If you are up in NorCal, this hotel is a hidden jewel. Very well kept, super clean, alot of amenities and a very pleasant staff. Small pool and picnic area nice for families. I needed to be in Eureka for a meeting and did not want to stay there, this hotel was perfect to get in and out of Eureka.

LynnJ978, General Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Thanks for the great review! I'm glad that you enjoyed the amenities that our Best Western had to offer. We hope to see you again soon.

"Clean comfortable room"

Peter K, Hurricane, Utah 17/09/2018

We stayed here for two nights (8/16 to 8/18/18) while we were touring the redwood forests. It is the older style BW but the property is well kept and our room (132) was large, clean, quiet and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was a bit small.The sink was outside the bathroom which is a feature we like.. Wifi was fine for email and web surfing, the breakfast was fine, typical of a BW. The hotel is within walking distance of two restuarants (we tried Eel River both nights). We would stay here again.

LynnJ978, General Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
I'm glad you not only enjoyed our hotel but the easy access that we have to our surrounding redwoods and resturaunts. We hope to see you again soon.

"Nice clean hotel"

Nicho123, Brisbane, Australia 10/09/2018

We stayed just one night. We were originally going to stay in Eureka but found Fortuna slightly cheaper. We were given a ground floor accessible/disabled room (not sure why) and it was a good size. Wifi was included. The room had an iron and ironing board which is always necessary for me. We loved the breakfast that was included, I'd say it was the best of the ones we had on our trip. It was very clean and well organised with a decent selection. I couldn't get over the cutlery dispensers on the wall - never seen those before! My only negative was that our room was next to the ice machine which someone came and used three times between about 6.30am and 6.45am, really noisy that early in the morning.

"Not the best place to stay"

Nancy H, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 28/08/2018

I do realize that there are not a lot of hotels in the area so one can't be too picky. The hotel was old and a little outdated which is fine except I did not feel that they the room was very clean the sheets had some stains on them as did the towels the carpet looked old and worn. The staff at the front desk were not overly helpful and I almost got the feeling that I was bothering them. If you can't find anywhere else to stay in this area I guess this is okay but I would check out some of the other hotels before I booked here.

Lynn J, General Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
I do apologize for your experience here, we are here to serve you and make you feel welcomed during your stay. I hope that you do come back and stay with us again and if you have any problems please contact me directly. we appreciate your business and value your stay.

"Big Quiet Comfortable Clean Room.. Nice Folks. They found and returned my Wallet !"

User 27/08/2018

Man, when the room cleaner returns the wallet ( full of money and cards) to the desk, you know you came to the right place. I had previously stayed at another name chain motel nearby.. and was treated like a flaming sack of manure . Here everything was cozy and nice. Friendly and competent desk staff. No big rigs doing donuts in the parking lot.. ( that;s the other place ! ) No fools standing outside my door smoking. We arrived early and tired out, and they made us welcome well before check -in time. In a world full of sleaze bag joints run by soul-less yo-yo's this place is so pleasantly refreshing.. it really doesn't matter what it costs.. not that it was much more than the flea bags that abound on 101. Glad we got the upstairs.. that makes a real difference. Very nicely kept up. Can't compare to a B and B... but among the available Motels in fortuna.. this is by far the best.. and IMHO Only Choice.

I'm glad to see that you enjoyed your stay here at the Best Western Country Inn in Fortuna. I'm glad that our friendly staff could get your wallet back to you and that you found our quiet clean rooms relaxing. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

"Room Needed Help."

bandman58, Newberg, Oregon 21/08/2018

First of all, we are loyal to Best Western Hotels and have an account. When we checked in at Fortuna, there were only 2 rooms available. We were offered the Handicapped room for approximately $270. The lady at the desk said they would bring in 2 rollaways for our twin 10 yr. old grand daughters. We went to dinner and when we came back, checked the was perfectly acceptable, but the other was like something used for "torture". There's metal such as fencing on both sides covered by extremely thin bedding. My husband lay on it and announced that no one could sleep on that rollaway, so he called the front desk and was informed that of the 3 rollaways, these were the best. That night, one grand daughter slept on a rollaway and the other SLEPT ON A CHAIR. I suggest whoever is in charge of the rollaways, sleep on the unacceptable one to see what we mean. In the bathroom there were only 2 sets of towels for 4 people and the wall dispenser for shampoo, conditioner and soap was soooo stiff that at first we thought it didn't work...a handicapped person would not be able to use it. One would think that bringing in 2 rollaways, would mean 2 more sets of towels. In the morning after explaining our situation, the day manager did give us a refund ($10) for one of the rollaways ("since it wasn't used") and points for our Best Western account, but thinking back, I don't believe the compensation was enough for the uncomfortable sleeping arrangement our grand daughter endured and the basically mediocre room. The night before we stayed in a Best Western in Angels Camp..a lovely facility and a mini-suite with 2 Q beds and the cost was $162. Sorry, but we were incredibly disappointed with the Fortuna Best Western.

Lynn J, General Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review i appreciate your feedback and I will make sure that we take that rollaway out of rotation. I will be contacting you so we can further discuss your stay and we can come up with an appropriate solution for your issues during your visit. We hope that you do come back and visit us again.

"Great place to stopover on way along coast"

WAHC, Westport, Connecticut 06/08/2018

We randomly picked this hotel and sure were glad we found it. It's a great location heading up from San Francisco to Oregon and is a very nice hotel. The staff was friendly, quick and competent. The rooms just fine. The pool and hot tub actually very nice too. There's a basic, well made, complimentary breakfast and the kitchen staff also very helpful and attentive. Would definitely stay here again.

"Great experience!"

weaverville1992, Weaverville, California 05/08/2018

This hotel is beautifully maintained and staffed with excellent, helpful people. It is near a wonderful trail that runs for miles along the Eel river. We had a dog with us and enjoyed this walk daily. Breakfast was varied and of high quality. The location was quiet and the bedding comfortable.

"nice little hotel"

uncgmoney, Wantagh, New York 30/07/2018

hotel is very nice, clean, cute. laundry room was clean, only had one washer/dryer, but luckily I got in before anyone else. the area is nice, outside of town, but close to everything. about 15 mins to Ferndale, 5 mins for the "town of Fortuna". Staff was very helpful& friendly. We had the mother in law suite, very nice rooms. Was wondering if we should stay in Fortuna or Eureka, to see the sights in Northern Ca. Fortuna is a MUCH nicer town than Eureka.

Thank you for staying with us here at the Best Western Country Inn. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your visit here to the friendly town of Forutna. We look forward to seeing you again on your next visit.

"Good location!"

User 29/07/2018

Breakfast room too small. Walls too thin. Could hear neighbors and their dogs. Internet was not strong at all. It kept kicking me out. Otherwise, I enjoyed my stay. The hot tub was nice but the jets were so low it didn't help my back. Pool was nice.

Lynn J, General Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us here at the Best Western Country Inn in Fortuna. I'm sorry about the breakfast area and the internet. We are currently working on the internet issue and are remodeling our lobby/breakfast area to make it more accessible to all our guests. We look forward to your next visit to let us know how we are doing.

"Business Trip"

User 23/07/2018

The hotel was a decent hotel but nothing terrific. I was not impressed with the cost of the hotel for what you get. It seemed for a Thursday night stay that it shouldn't cost $180 for a room. If I didn't have a dog with me the hotels in the area that were nicer were much less expensive.

Lynn J, General Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
I do apologize for the inconvenience of the prices we are in a busy season and all the businesses around us raise prices due to the high demand and we compare our rates based on the market and i try to stay just bellow to be able to provide our guest with better deals. I do appreciate your business and hope to see you again.

"Best place yet on our trip!"

jdana130, Houston, Texas, United States 13/07/2018

This was a Expedia deal and it was the best. Out in the country, very quiet. You access the room from the parking lot. Nice pool and spa. We used the coin laundry. Our room was a handicap room, very spacious with a step in shower. The curtain was curved at the top and hung over the floor which was a problem, but there was a heat lamp. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast had bacon and egg choices. We'd stay there again.

"Nice grounds & Close to Riverwalk"

SomebodyNoz, Sacramento, California 04/07/2018

Nice grounds with average rooms. Staff friendly and helpful. I liked the egg burrito breakfast sandwiches. Full breakfast not fancy but more flavor than Holiday Inn Express' powdered eggs. Rooms were traditional in style with 2.5 star quality. Nice pool, everything clean and well kept. Caters to families. Pretty good value to over priced summer high season at the coast. However, for my money, it would be a better value next time to go to another area. I would go 15 miles further north to Eureka where more choices for motel and meals or further south closer to redwoods.

"Good for One Night"

mary_gregoire, Aix-en-Provence, France 03/07/2018

We stayed at Best Western Inn on the first night of our Pacific Northwest Road Trip. We had a nice big room, comfortable bathroom and very good internet. The only thing not really good was the breakfast. It is a bit disorganized. The staff were trying to keep the food coming but the self service part was a bit complicated. You can make your own waffles but you need to stand there and wait for them, scrambled eggs were not at all tasty and the coffee was really weak! I suggest that you skip breakfast there and have it elsewhere.

Lynn J, General Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us here at the Best Western Country Inn in Fortuna. I'm so glad that you enjoyed our clean rooms and free WiFi. We appreciate the feedback on our breakfast. In a few months we will be going through a remodel on our lobby and breakfast area. This will help make things more organized and easier to use. We look forward to seeing you again after the remodel!

"Little gem in the middle of nowhere"

User 20/06/2018

This place accommodated is nicely for an overnight stay. We got a massive room (two units in one) called the Redwood. It was nice for our family of 5 and a decent continental breakfast. We ate and had full bellies for our road trip to the Redwoods.

"Great Hotel and great location"

blc45reb, Perth, Australia 13/06/2018

We spent four nights at this hotel, well located for exploring the region, good access to the101. Nice and quite location with a couple of restaurants with in easy walking distance. We had room on first floor 207 opposite swimming pool, large room with two queen beds. Continental breakfast was good with reasonable selection of food, breakfast room maybe on the small side on busy days. The heated swimming pool was a reasonable size and seems to be well used. There is a great walk along the banks of the Eel River accessed beside the function centre. I would stay there again and would recommend it to others.

"Nice area, Clean Room"

User 05/06/2018

Chose the BW Country Inn based on positive reviews, would recommend to others. Nice part of Humboldt County near the River and Eel River Brewing Company. Hotel itself is more of a "Motor Inn" style, not ultra luxurious, but cozy and set in a comfy location in Fortuna. Free Breakfast is nice, comparable to a Hampton Inn Breakfast. Would stay here again when Business brings me back to Humboldt County.

"Comfortable - after a long day's drive"

Shirley S, Boise, Idaho 22/05/2018

This hotel was clean; the beds were amazingly comfortable; and the breakfast was delicious. Near the hotel was a long river trail that afforded us some exercise after driving all day. Someone on Trip Advisor recommended staying here instead of a town up the road and we did. Good decision!!

"Pleasant stay."

OntarioTaffy, Ontario 21/05/2018

After looking at Eureka, we moved on to Fortuna and found this Best Western, gladly so. Great reception upon arrival and given the room we requested. Room was large, well laid out with fridge, freezer and microwave. Beds were comfortable and we slept well. Breakfast was hot and cold, enough to start your day. Wifi was good, but had to resign in whenever you turned your computer off. Good eateries around hoteland in a nice quiet area. Recommended.

Thank you for staying with us here at the Best Western Country Inn in Fortuna. I'm glad you found us also. We are very proud to be centrally located to Eureka and the Redwoods as well as beautiful beaches.

"Nice, spacious clean rooms"

User 19/05/2018

Comfy beds and pillows, 2 luggage racks, microwave, fridge, and coffeemaker in room. Rooms open to outside so it's nice to get a ground floor room. The sink was outside the tub/ toilet area which I always like because someone can be taking a shower and someone else can be using the sink area to get ready for the day. This hotel is close to Avenue of the Giants and has easy access to Hwy 101. It's also close to a few restaurants. After getting in our car to go eat at Eel's Brewery we realized it was within walking distance. Staff were all friendly and breakfast selection was good.

Stayed here for the Avenue of the Giants Marathon as close in locations book up. The room was comfortable with a good shower and bed, quiet location outside of town. Good breakfast selection. Bonus for runners is the river trail, a two mile gravel path which is perfect for a shakeout run the day before.

User 17/04/2018

Love the pool the same as I remember when I was little but just wondering why you just took away the middle part where the glass was. Beds are great they're very countable. Wi-Fi works really good there and this is the number one hotel to go to for me

Thank you for your great review. Yes we finally ended up taking out the glass it is really hard to get the water stains off the glass, So for a cleaner look we decided to go without :) We always appreciate your visit hope to see you again soon.

"Great location for Giant Redwoods and more!"

Glen A, Calgary, Canada 16/04/2018

I wish we could've stayed at this location longer. My wife and I enjoyed the Jacuzzi Suite - it was clean and thoroughly enjoyable after a long day of driving and hiking. There is a small continental breakfast area that has everything one really needs. Staff we met upon check-in and check-out were friendly and professional. No, it's not a 5-star hotel ... but it's a 5/5 value - especially considering its proximity to such things as the Avenue of the Giants, the Victorian Village of Ferndale, Carson Mansion and many more tourist destinations in the area.

"Nothing special"

User 02/04/2018

Error on my online reservation that the hotel couldn't/wouldn't correct. Basically cost me 50% of the room fee, which was after numerous attempts to reach someone to resolve. There was nothing overly special about the hotel, but it was close to the hwy. The Best Western in Eureka is much better.

I would like to apologize again, I do understand how booking online can get confusing on making sure that you get the correct dates that you need. I would like to get this problem resolved for you in any way that I can.

"Great family stop"

Kent R, Oakland, Oregon 31/03/2018

We were on our way back to Oregon from San Francisco and elected to stay at this Best Western in Fortuna because we've generally been pretty happy with BW properties and our girls wanted something with a pool. We made our reservation online which was fairly simple. We didn't roll in until about 8 pm and we were tired, but check-in was so fast and simple, we were in our room in no time at all. Our room was spacious, nicely appointed and very clean. Once we got set up in our room, we all went to the pool area to take a swim. Very clean and attractive pool and spa area. The pool is heated and is half indoor/half outdoor...very nice. We used both the pool and the spa, very relaxing after a long day on the road. Back in the room, the beds were comfortable and we were able to adequately control the temperature. We like to sleep in a cool room...around 60 degrees...and we were able to make that happen. Breakfast the next morning was what I've come to expect at a Best Western, good quality and selection. The hotel was full-up and the breakfast room is kind of small for a hotel this size, but we made it work. A couple of items ran out while we were there, but hotel staff did a relatively good job restocking. I took one of our girls for a morning swim before check-out. Our key card (needed for pool access) had worked the night before, but wouldn't work that morning. Luckily, a nice woman let me in and told me that she had had the same problem. There were only about four pool towels and by the time we got out to leave, there were none so we hustled back to our room to dry off. This was only a minor inconvenience, however, it might have been a bigger issue is the weather had been colder. Check out was simple and quick. Overall, this property looks very nice and the grounds are well-groomed and incredibly clean. There are some outdoor picnic tables and even a bbq grill to use if you're hanging around long enough. The only issues we had were the size of the breakfast area and the lack of pool towels, but those were minor. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in Fortuna.

"Fortuna's pleasant surprise."

User 12/03/2018

The Best Western in Fortuna is a great place to stay. The staff goes out of their way. The half covered swimming pool allows you to enjoy it even in inclement weather. Good restaurants in walking distance and the river walk is a great place to watch the sunrises and sunsets.

"Nice rooms, awful beds, good breakfast."

Bruce V, Penticton, Canada 10/01/2018

Motel is easy to get to off the highway. Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was large and clean, but the beds were shot. I mean really shot, as in visible sagging in the middle of the mattress. If the beds had been better I would have given a higher rating. The refrigerators are turned off, so if you need the refrigerator make sure to turn it on when you arrive.

Another stop on our motorcycle trip & we were not disappointed with this hotel. A very quiet setting, with clean rooms & a comfy bed. What more does one need? Plus, it was a very reasonable rate. We will stay here again when passing through.

"Great Property With GF friendly Breakfast"

BlackberryBoy, Vancouver, BC 05/01/2018

We stayed here one night on a California road trip. This is a motel style property but is amazingly well kept and our room was very clean and looked quite modern. We had a two queen room and it was unusually large. They have a cool indoor outdoor pool that was warm enough for my girls to use in January plus a hot tub. Probably the best part of the hotel was breakfast: delicious waffles, biscuits and gravy and breakfast sandwiches. The best part was that they had gluten free waffle batter for my daughter who has celiac disease! I will say the coffee was really bad though. This is a great property that we would definitely return to.

"Great stay"

fogOC, oregon coast 23/12/2017

Friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms great bed and pillows. What more could you want? This has been my go to place for many years when traveling between Oregon and California the past twelve years. They are also very dog friendly.

"Clean, affordable, safe and convenient"

U9926OXmichaelr, Edmonds, United States 15/12/2017

In general, I choose to stay at Best Western facilities. The rooms are always clean, The breakfasts are uniformly good. The staff has consistently been attentive to my requirements and those of my customers. I feel that they are a good value for a good nights rest.


dilving4hm2, Crescent City, California 11/12/2017

Great hotel!!!!!!! Beautiful, big, clean room. Flat screen tv, microwave and frig. Indoor and outdoor pool with Jacuzzi. Full breakfast was great. Coffee and tea available all day. Would recommend this hotel.

"Annual Family Christmas party"

lauragZ5839BW, Yuba City, California 05/12/2017

We stay at this Best Western whenever in the Humboldt county area. Staff is pleasant and helpful and the hotel is centrally located for day trips north and south. After a busy day a soak in the pool sauna is great!

"Superior Stay"

dancindawgs, Fort Bragg, California 05/12/2017

Ive stayed at this ,hotel before,but not for some time this time, but as I had experienced before, the hotel and its amazing staff made me feel welcome, explained the amenities, and assigned us a comfortable room. Breakfast was served invitingly and a full range of breakfast items were provided.

"Cleaner and more comfortable than the other three chain hotels in the immediate area"

G2575NDanthonys, Grass Valley, California 28/11/2017

We go to Fortuna a couple time each year to visit family and have stayed at all for hotels in this area. They are all okay, but we find the Best Western a little nicer than the others. The price for all four hotels seems a little high, this one being about the highest but the parking lot was pretty full so I assume people are happy to pay it.

"Surprised in the morning"

wolf032767, Westlake, Louisiana 26/11/2017

Exhausted, we arrived at the hotel at the end of traveling through a rainy, dreary California. We woke up the next morning refreshed to a surprisingly good breakfast and an amazing view of the countryside.

"Ideal spot to explore Humboldt County"

J W, Santa Rosa, California 26/11/2017

This is my second stay. I love the site and its amenities, especially the 'whirlpool' rooms. Staff and service is excellent. This truly is the ideal location to explore northern coastal California. Many infamous spots are within minutes (Ave. of the Giants, Trees of Mystery, Paul Bunyon, an so much more). Also, there are hiking, biking, and kayaking spots nearby. I recommend this Best Western.

"wonderful country setting close to everything"

karengowins, San Diego, California 25/11/2017

This is wonderful place to "get away"-- in a country setting. Close to redwoods, Eureka, coast , Eel river and main highway. Lots of places to walk, explore, enjoy in the country side or in the close by towns.

"Great place to stay in this area!"

33Shells, Santa Rosa, California 19/11/2017

Was very surprised by the quality of this hotel! Incredibly friendly staff & beds/sleeper sofas were very comfortable! Nice selection for breakfast & staff asked if we were all finished before starting to clean up. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone up in that area!

"Superb Country Inn"

Larry C, Gleneden Beach, Oregon 18/11/2017

Outstanding Best Western. Great beds, wonderful breakfast, and professional, helpful staff. We stay here often on our way from Oregon to California and return. The choice of various pillows is unique among motels/inns/hotels. The best mattress we have ever slept on. Free cookies, fruit, and newspapers. Cookies in the lobby, and a snack in every room at check in. Highly recommend this property.

"Easy check in/out, very friendly staff"

Pamela T, Healdsburg, California, United States 30/10/2017

We arrived on a Friday around 3 p.m. The last 3 weeks were extremely stressful and needed things to go easy. Cookies, coffee, water and tea waited in the lobby for guests checking in. Friendly desk attendants greeted us and our request for a room downstairs was fulfilled. Comfortable bed, coffee maker and refrigerator in room, great location.

"District Dircector"

anthonylS9471QW, Fairfield, United States 27/10/2017

one of the nicest Hotels for the price.The weather was great the walk nothing like it and the ocean view and your in the country of the giant red woods There are so many things to see such a cheese factory a short distance away all with very friendly people.

"Best Western is the BEST"

patriciamY361ZU, Santa Barbara, United States 26/10/2017

Have lodged with Best Western in 7 different states. Impressed with the unvarying high standard of room and service. The only lack noticed is that Best Western's internet service is often 'unsecured'.


Terry1023, San Diego, California 15/10/2017

This was a motel and very noisy. I have stayed at BW before and this was a disappointment. People smoking right outside their rooms, a walk in the morning for coffee in the cold and lots of work trucks. The room was clean and the bed comfortable but I will not recommend this BW.

"Big Changes"

Sharon B, Yreka, United States 13/10/2017

Big changes at the BW not as good as the past eight years that I have been going there. Breakfast selection has gone down and is not as good room amenities have changed and are not as good as the past. Internet was below par.

"Business in Scotia"

Z4545MTlouisb, San Mateo, United States 11/10/2017

If you are staying in the Eureka/Fortuna/Scotia area this is a nice place to stay. A little far from the downtown but close to the river. Nice place and location. Amenities are good for a motel and they generally have a warm environment.

"Classic stay on the coast"

P4032TEtrevor, Redding, California 10/10/2017

I usually stay here while traveling on the coast. I did like the breakfast before they changed things around but they now offer a breakfast sandwich all ready to go which is convenient. This hotel is centered around being ecofriendly without coming out and saying it. Which can be both good and bad for you depending on what you expect from a hotel.

"Awesome experience!"

L748QRjamesc, Hanford, United States 10/10/2017

great experience, all employees were helpful and friendly. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. The coffee and breakfast was very good. Would recommend to our family and friends. Very close to restaurants.

"Pros and cons"

travel963, Boulder, Colorado 04/10/2017

Surprised and disappointed to find a big jet tub in our bedroom. Desk clerk said that's what I ordered, but I did not, and they could not move us to a normal room. No elevator. Thin blanket, no comforter. Slow internet. Out of coffee at breakfast. $143 seemed high for this.

"Comfortable Accommodation"

bbcarey, Edmonton, Canada 02/10/2017

Very comfortable accommodation. Great Breakfast. Easy access off Highway 101. Quiet location. Would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting good accommodation at a reasonable price in Northern California just off the Pacific Coast Highway.

"A great place to stay,you have to try it."

Joyce C, Mendocino co., United States 01/10/2017

The staff is friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean, the bed was nice and comfortable and best of all the pillows were the best! Cannot comment on the breakfast because we ate else where. You really should give this place a try, I`m sure you will like it. They even have picnic benches and bbq`s outside on a lawn area.

"Passing through.."

William M, Rio Vista, CA, United States 29/09/2017

I have stayed here before, so it was a return visit for me. The property is very well kept and easy to get to from the freeway . This was a last minute reservation, so the choice of rooms was thin. I ended up in a suite with a huge spa/ tub in the corner that I am sure would be appreciated by the right person, not me. I just needed a nice soft bed and quiet surroundings after a long day! That's what I got. Breakfast was ok depends on your tastes I suppose.

"A very nice stay in Fortuna"

John B, Redding 26/09/2017

We enjoyed staying at the Best Western Country Inn. We have stayed at other hotels in Fortuna, but because of the TA higher rating, and a similar price to another hotel we have stay at before, we chose to try it. We are glad we did. It deserved the higher rating, and it was a nice stay, even in the rain.

"excellent pub nearby"

James M, Morgan Hill, California 25/09/2017

GSA recommended Pub nearby and it was excellent it was a nice clean hotel with plenty to do. Easy access to HWY 101. The entire team members were welcoming and warm. No need to worry about the hospitality service at this hotel. Housekeeping doing excellent work and the hotel was clean neat and organized.

"Great Visit"

291howardc, Round Lake, Il, United States 22/09/2017

Six great days in Fortuna. Motel was excellent. Good breakfast, wonderful staff and the price was right. Convenient location in Country setting. Would definitely recommend to friends and family and look forward to our next visit.

"Nice lodging in a quiet setting"

kayaker1947, Pacific City, Oregon 18/09/2017

Conveniently located to access Redwoods park. Room was clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. Hot breakfast was good. Eel River brew pub is within walking distance and had good food in a casual atmosphere.

"Very nice!"

barbara1932, Vancouver, Washington 17/09/2017

Very nice hotel,in the office they welcome you with water/coffee /fruit and cookies! The stuff was wonderful and friendly special the man that worked the morning of September 11th. He was very helpful telling us what was the best way to go to Yosemite Park. I did remember his name.. The room was very clean the beds very comfy and we had very pleasant stay there. They even had the tv remote sanitized! Great price for a nice room with fridge/microwave/coffee pot,nice big TV and good internet connection!

"Very comfy"

Leonard O, California 14/09/2017

Room was very nice and comfortable. Tv could be waaay bigger. The remote doesn't have a button that shows whats on tv only the channels. The bed was nice and pillows too. They give you more coffee in the room than the other hotels. We would stay here again.

"Clean rooms excellent breakfast nice staff"

User 10/09/2017

Excellent clean rooms Nice bath towels Sanitized tv remote Refrigerator and microwave in room Good price Clean clean rooms much appreciated Good hot breakfast Nice that electric plugs are situated in the lamps

"Minimal amenities"

janet1646, Seattle, Washington 08/09/2017

This property bills itself as pet friendly but that is a stretch. They charge $20 which ONLY includes access to your room and a small patch of grass. The hotel is surrounded by other hotels and businesses so there is no place to walk your dog without getting in your car and driving to a park or residential area. For me, this is a major drawback. The room itself was fine but I question their housekeeping - the recycle bin in the room was full from the prior guest and while there was a boxed guest soap on the vanity, the box was empty - wouldn't the housekeeper notice the box was empty when they wiped down the vanity? In the plus column, the towels were very white and fluffy! Upon check-out I asked for a receipt but was informed that because I booked through Expedia they could neither tell me the rate I had paid for the room nor could they print a receipt. Really? Inexcusable.

"Great place to Stay"

leslief698, San Francisco, California 08/09/2017

This hotel is friendly, clean, and had great breakfast choices. The coffee was good, the room service was excellent, and the front desk staff was wonderful even with my complicated stay. Great location too.

"Stay in Fortuna"

kathyandtonyb, Sonoma, United States 05/09/2017

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Fotuna Hotel. The hotel staff, our room & the food were all good. However, the pool & spa area need a complete overhaul. They were not only old, but tiles were black from either mold or age. Part of the pool is indoor, part outdoor. The indoor area smelled like a well used gym.

"John sez stay here"

E6925RRjohns, Modesto , Ca, United States 05/09/2017

With courteous staff and great conditions and great food this is the place to stay. We come back here twice a year to attend activities in Ferndale and this works well for us. The Danish group we are with all enjoy this location.

"Convenient and Pet Friendly"

RJ748, Grass Valley, California 29/08/2017

The front desk staff here was very friendly and welcoming during our stay. They were also proactive in notifying us of an issue with the water in the room. There was a leak in a city pipe which caused the water to be shut off of an hour or so. We noticed the lack of water pressure after we checked in. Before I could call the front desk to request assistance, they were on the phone to us, letting us know what the situation was. The facility is pet friendly. Their policy specifies that pets may not be left unattended in the room, but we were able to leave our quiet, small dog in his crate in the room when we went to dinner, and there didn't seem to be an issue with this. I'm sure that if a destructive or noisy pet were left unattended, the hotel would take exception to this and contact the owner to rectify the situation. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. It is not located directly on the highway, so we didn't hear any traffic noise. This place seems to be popular with business travelers, particularly folks in the trades, so we did hear a number of diesel pick-up trucks firing up early in the morning, as these guests headed out to work. But this wasn't an issue for us, as we got an early start both mornings during our stay. And we enjoyed chatting with some of these workers one evening when we encountered them in the parking lot. There are two decent restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. There is also a small, well-maintained lawn with picnic tables and a barbecue grill for guests' use and a nice looking swimming pool. They serve a hot breakfast buffet which included scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy. Nothing special, but it sufficed. Bottom line: This is a nice facility, and we would definitely stay here again if we are in the area. A few other pros and cons: Pros: *Rooms include a coffee maker, refrigerator, and microwave. *The bathroom has a shower/tub combination. *They have free wi-fi, with good speed and connection. *The bathroom sink and vanity are in a separate area from the shower and toilet, and the vanity had ample room to lay out one's toiletries. *Complimentary waste disposal bags are provided in the pet-walking area. Cons: *Our room had two queen beds. We would have preferred a king-sized bed. *Instead of offering small, individual shampoo, soap and conditioner, there was a dispenser for these items attached to the wall in the shower. It was mounted under the shower head. Fine if you are taking a shower, but inconvenient if you are taking a bath. It is the kind of feature that I associate with lower-end properties and with the shower rooms at the gym. *The tub stopper was the type that had a rubber seal around it. The one in our room was finicky, and I couldn't get it to seal shut, so I had to push a washcloth on top of it in order to get the tub to fill. *There was a limited selection of tea bags at the breakfast buffet. Our room had plain, black tea bags by the in-room coffee maker, but these weren't available at the breakfast buffet, and the fellow at the front desk said that they didn't have any black tea for the buffet. *The pet walking area was poorly lit in the early morning hours. I saw a security light mounted on the back of the hotel, but it wasn't on when I walked my dog at 5:30 a.m. This made me feel a little unsafe, and it made it difficult to see what I needed to see in order to pick up after my dog. If you are going to be walking your dog before it's light out, you will probably want to take a flashlight with you.

"Low value"

Craig I, Woodacre, California 26/08/2017

At over $180 per night, you would expect a view property or something closer to a major attraction. The clanking of the laundry carts in the early morning was quite noisy as were the trucks starting up. The breakfast pastries were cold and stale. The room was nice enough but not worth the cost.

sharrie310, Front Office Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback. The price is in line with that of the competition as we are currently in our high season. We have many festivals, hiking and beaches that makes this a popular stop during this time of year. We will visit our current breakfast and correct any concerns if needed. Once again, I appreciate your feedback.

"A Nice Place To Stay"

User 22/08/2017

My family stayed here the last 3 nights. The Inn appears to be fairly new, it has that new Inn smell. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The only downfall we found was that the bathroom area was a bit small. Other then that this is a nice place to stay. The beds were very comfortable. They offer a full breakfast with your stay. They have a pool and Hot Tub. It location in near the Avenue Of Giants drive, very convenient.

"Very Clean"

A2007NSmarkh, Las Vegas, Nevada 20/08/2017

Extremely clean place with a very nice and helpful staff. Got the last Dog friendly room and they give you treats and bags for your pet The breakfast was great with a large selection. If in area again I will definitely stay there.

"Great stay"

Brian B, Westminster, Maryland 20/08/2017

Nice location, hot tub in room, food staff, clean room - hard to ask for much more. Overalll a nice break after 1000 mikes in the road. Check out the excellent food and beer at brewpub just down block.

"Best stay yet!"

507jeanetter, Redding, California 14/08/2017

As a Best Western Rewards Member we always stay at their hotels. This one particular hotel was TOP NOTCH! The staff is so friendly and accommodating and the grounds were very clean. Breakfast was delicious including biscuits and gravy, waffles,eggs, sausage, etc. we stayed in the Redwood Suite which accommodated our family if 6 plus fur buddy with TONS of space for the kids to stretch out and play. Pool and hot tub area was very nice too. I would definitely recommend staying here! As we will again I'm sure!

"Great property"

John L, susanville, United States 10/08/2017

Nice hotel. One of the better BW. Nice rooms. Breakfast is not as good as it used to be since change of owners. Walking distance to good restaurants. The indoor/outdoor pool is nice. Staff is good and helpful.

"Perfect location between Eureka and the Redwoods"

JimStev, Henderson, Nevada 05/08/2017

We stayed here while we visited Eureka and Ferndale - convenient to both. The room was spacious and well appointed - loved the spa and pool area and the breakfast. It is close to the Redwood Highway which is good and bad - only bad in that the 18-wheeler drivers park nearby and when they startup and move - the quiet is broken. Not a major issue.

"Easy to find, comfortable, quiet and clean."

patluvstogo, Fayette City, Pennsylvania 04/08/2017

We had a very pleasant stay. Our king room had a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. It was easy to find off the Interstate, close to town, restaurants, gas, etc. It did have a pool that was partial inside and part outside. It would have been a tiny pool if only the inside portion was open. Our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was typical, nothing special. The staff was friendly and helpful. One nice touch was a package of cookies in the room, they happened to be my favorite peanut butter cookies!

"Great place to stay when traveling up the coast"

User 01/08/2017

My girls loved the cookies they have in the lobby. The receptionist is very nice and quick. The hotel and room is very clean. There is a refrigerator and microwave in the room. Which is perfect for any leftovers you may have from the funky monkey restaurant that is within walking distance. Beautiful location with pretty flowers around Took a little swim in the pool and jacuzzi with my little one. The pool and surrounding area is tidy and clean They had some mango, strawberry and blueberry fruit that went with the waffles We would definitely stay again when traveling up the West coast to Oregon

"Good location for exploring the redwoods"

bpenrod, San Francisco 27/07/2017

I chose this location because it's well situated for visiting Humboldt Redwoods State Park, Ferndale, etc. It's also not too far for visiting the Redwood National and State Parks further north. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was. The free breakfast and coffee before starting out for a day of hiking was perfect.

"Easy access"

Lisa G, Lakeland, Florida 26/07/2017

Very easy place to find. It's a very nice place. Convenient location to freeway and restaurants. Very friendly and helpful staff. Large spacious room and very clean. On this trip we have stayed at several Best Western Plus hotels and have been very happy with all of them.

"Super friendly staff"

User 23/07/2017

We stayed here with our three kids as a stop on a drive from Oregon to Los Angeles. What a great choice! Room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. And every single staff member we passed on the grounds had a smile and a friendly hello. The kids loved that the pool was half indoors and half out! Would definitely recommend to other travelers.

"The Best Best Western."

lynnj107, Lucerne, California 21/07/2017

If you've stayed here, I know you loved it like myself and my family did. If you havent, you simply must! Discovered it by accident and I sure feel lucky I did. It's like a shangrila, words can hardly describe it! You must see for yourselves.

"Great location, very clean, gluten free aware"

Larry H, Waterloo, Canada 17/07/2017

Nice location between Red Wood national parks. Just off the highway. Gluten free options available for breakfast, just had to ask. Recommend Double D Steak House locally, good quality and lots of food.

"Great place"

kerrib334, Redding, California 13/07/2017

Was very relaxing and quite. Bed was extremely comfortable. Service was great and even gave me a gift bag for my puppies that were traveling with me. Would definitely go back and highly recommend it!!

"Above and Beyond"

User 04/07/2017

We have stayed at this motel multiple times, and PURPOSELY stay there because of the great breakfasts, and the beautifully kept flowers and grounds. We call this the Nutter Butter motel because of the wonderful cookies left in our room. You can tell the employees CARE about the appearance of the grounds and the guest rooms. Everyone is friendly and very helpful making this our go-to place when we're in the Fortuna area.

"The BEST along the PCH"

stephenbR2546RB, Kansas City, United States 29/06/2017

We loved this hotel. We did the PCH using Best Western gift cards (cashed in travel card points) so we stayed at about 6 different BW's. This one was the crown jewel of them all (as well as others in D.C. and around MO). I'm allergic to the cookies, so didn't eat them, but they smelled almost good enough to risk it. Everything about our visit was pleasant. Can't recommend it highly enough.


Robert L, Paradise, USA 26/06/2017

beautiful planter beds. just always a pleasant stay . for a small town in a out of the way place it is worth stopping the night at. easy access, breakfast is always better than a trip to Mickey Dee's close to a brew pub which is nice.

"Best hotel in Humboldt County"

User 25/06/2017

Great location, clean and affordable, and pet friendly. The amenities in the room were far better than most hotels I've stayed at. What a treat to find a package of cookies next to the coffee pot. My small dog was given a doggie bag full of treats and a toy. I will stay here again and recommend it to travelers.

"Nice stop on our way North"

Mary O, Cedarpines Park, United States 23/06/2017

Enjoyed lovely weather and accommodations in Friendly Fortuna. Our daughter loved the swimming pool. It was a little farmyard in smell from the Calornia happy cows across the street, but we slept well.

"North California Coast Weekend"

User 22/06/2017

This is a clean facility with updated rooms. They offer an excellent self serve breakfast with hot food so you can start your day without having to go to a local cafe. Convenient location for exploring the Northern California coastal area. We will be back to do the "Lost Coast Loop"

"Clean and quiet"

Mike H, Redlands, California 17/06/2017

We stayed here four nights without any issues. The room was clean, there were fresh homemade cookies in the lobby every day. The people behind the counter were very nice, and the included breakfasts were very good with home-made waffles, eggs, sausages, biscuits, the usual fresh fruits and dry cereals.

"Nice place; bad room location"

JamesHTexas, Texas 15/06/2017

We just stayed one night at this BW on our way to hike in the redwoods. The room was large, clean, and well furnished. The Internet, however, was either weak or non-existent during our visit. Noise from the road and from other guests chasing their dang pets (our room was by the pet poop lawn) necessitated ear plugs. A big kudo for the great breakfast offerings and the lady who kept the area in order and replenished. In contrast, the front desk people were neither welcoming at check-in nor appreciative of my business at check-out. This is an above average place to stay.....just be picky about your room location. Perhaps a better location would also result in a better internet experience.

"Awesome! Best Property So Far On Road Trip!"

fancypawz, Henrico, Virginia 13/06/2017

Been on the road for almost 2 months-this is the best property of the whole trip so far. Beautifully maintained hotel, inside and out. Web site pix don't do it justice. Skip staying in Eureka and stay here. Nicer, cleaner, less expensive, and the drive just isn't that far. Me, mum, and the dog stayed in the Sequoia Suite-a large 2B/1B apartment. There's a connecting door to (I assume) the business office, so it was probably an on-site manager apartment at one time. It's right next to the laundry, but was still quiet. Grounds and exterior are meticulously maintained, so I assume the other rooms are also. Ours certainly was. Saw not one, but three, different maintenance people working on property. One of them hooked up a hose for me to clean my dog off after a trip to the local dog park (less than 5 minute drive), and I waited less than 5 minutes after asking at the desk. Dog station/bags provided, and lots of room to walk the dog around the circle and along the levee on the Eel River behind the Conference Center. Breakfast was standard but ample. Sounded like the kids loved the indoor/outdoor pool. Quiet and well lit at night. Walking distance to Eel River Brewing. Stay on the sidewalks during rush hour cuz traffic flies down these roads! Micro and small fridge only, even though it's a suite. Would definitely stay here again.

"Peace and Quiet"

444phantom, Oregon Coast, Oregon 11/06/2017

Have always had good luck with BW's, & this was no exception. Nice sized, clean rooms, with comfortable bed. The grounds are well kept, and there was little, if any, noise, despite being close to a busy road. Staff was friendly and helpful. We had our dog with us, and there was a treat bag waiting for her. Breakfast was one of the better ones we've had, with a variety of choices. Was within walking distance of Eel River Brewing Company, and that in itself would be a reason to stay. Have stayed in many BW's. This is one of the top 5. No offense to Arcata & Eureka, but if you are coming from the north, head for Fortuna.

"Such a beautiful hotel!!!!"

Badger27, Wisconsin 10/06/2017

After a very long drive up from San Francisco, the wife and I were beat. This hotel had curb appeal for days, what a beautiful setting. The front desk clerk was very helpful and friendly, the free cookies were a big help too! The room was immaculate, bed very comfortable. The breakfast was also excellent. We stayed for 3 nights and they had different food each morning. We've done a lot of traveling and stayed at a lot of hotels, but this was by far my favorite one. I highly recommend staying here!!!!

A great place to take a break and visit the redwoods and family in the area. I would stay there again and enjoy the breakfast bar, but it would be nice if deasil trucks didn't idle in the parking lot.

sharrie310, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Hello, and so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Our location is just right for easy on & off freeway access and the beautiful Redwoods just minutes away. Unfortunately we do have trucks from time to time that idle in the parking lot and we try to address that whenever possible. Hope to see you again in the near future. Best Wishes

"Family getaway"

JBEE57, Fairfield, California 05/06/2017

If your heading to the Humboldt Area please don't go any further than Fortuna for a hotel. The Best Western Country Inn is a great stop and stay Hotel. Its clean, comfortable and the staff is very nice. Its a little older but very well kept up. The hotel surrounds the parking lot so your parking is centered inside the hotel grounds. Easy on and off the 101 but no freeway noise. I have stayed a few time at this Hotel and another close by and equally comfortable. But I do prefer The Best Western Country Inn as my 1st choice.

"Great hotel"

K128VJvictorias, Seattle, Washington 03/06/2017

This was one of the BWs we've stayed at this year. It was clean and well kept up. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast had more options and better quality product than most. Friends staying at a nearby hotel said the BW was a nicer facility. We would choose to stay there again if we returned to Fortuna.

"Nice place to stay in Fortuna"

tipbob, Sacramento, CA 03/06/2017

This motel is a great place to stay in Fortuna. Very clean and well run. The breakfast is a bonus. Close to freeway and street, so there is a bit of noise at times, but not too bad. The rooms are very large and nicely decorated. I like having power outlets very easy to access for recharging.

"Excellent room"

DaveL1945, Sweet Home, Oregon 01/06/2017

Best motel in Fortuna. We have stayed in town on multiple trips and this motel is the best in town. I would recommend this motel without reservation. Our stay have always relaxing. Bed quality and clean rooms are always above expectations.

"This is a wonderful place to stay."

cindysC8532HQ, Butte Valley, United States 31/05/2017

This is a beautiful hotel with lush plants and flowers. The staff are very pleasant and helpful and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is very very good. We stay here every year and it just gets better and better.

"A really nice quiet place with large rooms and good amenities."

Markay_10, Los Altos Hills, California 22/05/2017

Not walking distance to anything, but quiet spot, easy parking, large rooms, good bed and towels. Breakfast is standard but coffees are outstanding. Wifi is very reliable. A good spot from which to explore the Redwood Highway and cute Victorian village of Ferndale.

"Clean & Nice staff"

480fatimag, Los Angeles, United States 18/05/2017

I'd stay here again. Clean room and the staff were nice to us. We had a problem with the next door TV being on too loud at 730 AM, and there was a sound of two dogs barking/whining all night long. One of the dogs was inside a truck in the parking lot, the other dog, we couldn't see.

"Nice place."

phonebone, Stockton, California 17/05/2017

Great place to stay if you're going to explore the big redwoods or the towns of Fortuna or Scotia. Great attentive staff that jumps through hoops to make your stay comfortable. The breakfast buffet is one of the best in the BW system.

"Home away from home"

Adventuregranny, Reedsport, Oregon 16/05/2017

We love this hotel and stay there every time we drive down the coast to visit family. It's clean and comfortable, but most of all the folks there do everything they can to make you feel at home. The landscaping is beautiful and I love to sit near the window in their breakfast room and watch the birds outside as they nibble from the bird feeder.

sharrie310, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Thank you so much for this lovely review from your recent stay. We are delighted to have exceeded your expectations and feel comfortable here at The Country Inn. Yes, the birds feeders are a fan favorite. In fact we just installed a new one today on on center lawn, so please look for it on your next visit. We hope to see you agin in the near future, and wish you happy travels! Best Regards

"Travelling through..."

Ian B, Mackay 09/05/2017

We had booked this motel due to its close proximity to the Redwoods. We were very impressed..very friendly and obliging reception staff. The breakfast which was included was more than adequate. Rooms were very clean, spacious and comfortable. Would certainly recommend this motel. A visit to the little township of Fortuna is also a.must!

sharrie310, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Hello, and so happy to hear that you were able to enjoy our facilities. Our little Country Inn is quite a surprise to many as we are in a great location, and offer some of the same amenities you will see in a larger Hotel.

"O, Fortuna"

User 08/05/2017

Wonderful stay at the Best Western in Fortuna. The location is very quiet, and across the street from a pasture. At breakfast, there is a lovely view of the Jersey cows. The staff were all very friendly, the room was very clean. The location was very quiet & peaceful.

sharrie310, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review from your recent stay with us! Yes the cows right across the street are one of my favorite views, especially when they come right up the the edge of the fence. Our location is very convenient to both hwy 101, and close to the beautiful Redwoods, but still quiet and peaceful. We hope you keep us in mind for your future travels! Best Wishes!


Maria F, East Glacier Park, Montana 06/05/2017

Perfect rooms - everything works. Clean and spacious, ample amenities, pleasant atmosphere, and a superb buffet breakfast. Nothing fake! Easy access from Highway 101. Friendly staff. A little expensive but we got good value for our money.

sharrie310, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for such a lovely review, and delighted to hear we have exceeded your expectations. Yes, having easy access to hwy 101 is a great convenience. No getting lost between on ramps! We hope to see you again in the near future! Best Regards!

"Excellent Accomodations"

roland g, Cypress, California 03/05/2017

We booked a pet-friendly room for two nights. The room was large, very clean, and included everything you could need to make your stay pleasant. It had a hair dryer, iron and ironing board, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker and did I say, it was very clean. The breakfast included bacon, sausages, hash browns, and many other items.

"Clean and comfortable"

User 01/05/2017

Long road trip, late night, needed a place to rest. This was a great Best Western for that. Friendy staff, quick check-in. I let the kiddos swim in the morning before checkout, Pool area was really nice. Would stay here again and recommend.

sharrie310, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western Country Inn, responded to this review
Hello and thank you for this great review from your recent visit. Glad you had a quick check-in and a comfortable stay. Our unique indoor/ outdoor heated pool is always a big hit with both kids and grown ups. Please keep us in mind for your future travels. Best Regards!

"Reliable choice on the road"

betteskid, Boston, Massachusetts 01/05/2017

I stayed here with friends recently on a trip to the area and was pleased with the stay. That said, this is a stop by the highway if you happen to need accommodations in area - it is not a destination. We found our room to be ample. A fridge and microwave were provided. Everything was very clean and the internet was complimentary and worked well. There were some picnic tables outside with grills. We did not sample these but these could be a nice option if you were staying longer. The property also offered an ample (and included) breakfast with many choices. Although I don't often look for lodging in an unplanned way when driving through an area, this was my situation this time around. My group chose this property and it worked out well.

"Nice comfortable Hotel with welcoming cookies!"

Peppertaz, CA 20/04/2017

After a long day of driving the "Lost Coast" we were happy to come lay our heads here. At check in they offered cookies and had fresh fruit and Hershey's kisses available with fresh pineapple water and all the usual coffee, tea and hot cocoa options. They have an indoor/outdoor pool, nice sized rooms with fridge and microwave. Breakfast included sausage, egg and cheese on English muffins, hash browns, eggs, bacon, pastries, cereal, waffles, and much more with juices, yogurt, fruit etc. you can get a pretty hearty breakfast and hold you over all day if you grab an apple and banana to go. Fill up that coffee mug and on the road again.

Carol K, Georgetown, Indiana 18/04/2017

We checked in after midnight and the staff was very pleasant to work with after a long day of traveling. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable! We stayed here to be close to the Humboldt Redwood Forest. The free breakfast was exceptional. Would highly recommend.

This BW should be an A+! The rooms are attractive & clean; the beds extremely comfortable. The staff all seem happy to work there, attentive, caring & professional. The free breakfast is outstanding. With a hot tub and heated indoor/outdoor pool, it is my first and only choice in the area.

bellahsoto, Sacramento, California 13/04/2017

This "Country Inn" was just that...cozy, clean and welcoming. The staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and fresh. Breakfast was very good also. There pool and spa looked so inviting, although we did not use. Would recommend this Best Western.

"Great Overnight Stay"

W4938AWsandram, Santa Rosa, United States 11/04/2017

The staff, appearance and overall service at the hotel was great. We were traveling with our dog and are not always confident with our accommodations. The BW was perfect in every way. I am a travel agent and am personally and professionally aware of requests guests make. We would definitely stay here again.

"Dog friendly stay"

NanaPops, Dinsmore, Ca 09/04/2017

Unexpected stay in town with our pooches led to us finding this spot, and we're glad we did. Great room, nice dog walk spot and the fine Riverwalk trail nearby, great breakfast. We will likely stay here again.

"Excellent Facility in Convenient Location"

teresabY4718PN, Roseville, United States 09/04/2017

This facility is very attractive and is in a convenient location (close to the freeway, the downtown, and to a hiking path along the Eel River). The room was comfortable, and the complimentary breakfast was much better than the usual breakfast buffet at comparable hotels.

sharrie310, Guest Relations Manager at BEST WESTERN Country Inn, responded to this review
Thank you so much for your lovely comments from your recent stay with us. We try very hard to have a breakfast with many selections, to start off your day in a great way!

Very impressed with cleanliness of hotel and grounds. Groundskeepers even seen cleaning on a Saturday! Didn't have time to use the pool, but it looked clean and inviting. Breakfast staff never let anything run low, and kept spills at bay while keeping tongs available. Would definitely stay here again.

Please place some sort of seating for the incoming guests to be comfortable while waiting to check- in also have a designated area for smoking, at or near the check-in area, and may-be a ash tray or a place to extinguish their cigarettes

"Loud plus Unhelpful Front Desk"

User 19/11/2016

This hotel is party central in Fortuna apparently. If you want to do something like get sleep, pick another hotel. I told the front desk about the large group of men on the 2nd floor above us, sitting out front, drinking and talking way too loudly. I mentioned this was my 2nd complaint and wanted to be moved to another room. He couldn't have cared less...didn't apolgize and said they can be there until 10pm. As a Diamond member, I'm stunned at the lack of service and how little this hotel cares about the noise level. I'll be taking my business to other hotels going forward.

"Great Pit Stop"

User 18/11/2016

Traveling with my husband and two dogs (they don't discriminate, we paid $20/dog). Only has two stories with doors facing outside. Pet area is pretty wimpy with just a patch of grass but they do provide doggy bags. I was pretty impressed how clean they keep it with the heavy food traffic that goes through (there was a large group of construction workers staying for the night). Beds were comfortable, rooms smelled fresh, toiletries on point (eco friendly by providing bulk dispensers in the shower), refrigerator/microwave, surprisingly quiet, etc. Basically anything you might need they try to provide for you. I wouldn't say its a vacation spot but if you are doing a road trip up the north coast great place to stop by for a night to rest. The continental breakfast was probably the best we've had in a three star hotel. We would definitely be back again if coming through this area.

"Best hotel in Fortuna!"

Jackie J, Chilliwack, Canada 12/11/2016

Best hotel we have stayed in when visiting Fortuna, CA. We had tried several others but were disappointed. We would have tried Best Western but we did not realize you were pet friendly. So happy that you are! Your are our home away from home. Thank you.

This is the place to stay, with fresh cookies and coffee at all hours. A great breakfast, exceptionally clean rooms and a heated pool to sooth thoseweary bones when you have to travel. You won't be sorry if you choose this motel for your slumber. The staff is excellent, and very helpful! My husband had just had a knee replacement we called ahead of time, he was exhausted from the trip and they let us check in early. They were awesome, also pet friendly, taking our pets with us can be sometimes stressful but not here there were very easy to work with which is a real plus!

Large rooms and the place is spotless. There are employes everywhere dusting and cleaning and our room, which was a basic 2 queen, was very spacious. Breakfast was great with a much larger selection than most with a free breakfast. Waffles, eggs, bacon, sausage with biscuits and gravy. Fruit salad, oatmeal, anything you can think of toasting. Fresh fruit and tea and coffee in the lobby 24 hours a day. Staff really nice too,

We were on a 10-day trip over which we stayed in 9 different hotel/motels. This Best Western is a quiet, clean, and restful place to stay. It had the best breakfast of anywhere we stayed that week. And being walking distance to Eel River Brewing did not hurt either!

"Fortuna, ca.Best Western."

User 07/10/2016

Pleasantly surprised! we had a terrific stay here visiting family. Our room was clean with a king bed and a jacuzzi tub. The breakfast in the lobby was great. The women working were so nice and helpful. What makes this place a 5 for us was all the little things that make one feel welcome and at home. Upon arrival, in the lobby, cookies, Hershey kisses, coffee and tea. we had a little visitor who came to see us and he loved the cute set up of trick or treating for the kiddies with gummy bears and lollipops. The room has so much to mention, great hair dryer, a dispenser of shampoo, conditioner and body wash. fluffy towels and terry cloth robes. fridge with freezer, great TV with many channels. chair with ottoman, and more cookies in the room. although we didn't try it, there is a indoor/ outdoor pool and hot tub. Also, an area for pets to do their business, too! we will definitely stay here again and bring our pooch next time. thanks for the hospitality, you are doing a great job! we were spoiled! you raised the bar so high we were so severely disappointed with the best western we stayed at in willits, ca., the following evening.

"Surprising good"

twally10, Seattle 06/10/2016

"Excellent Choice"

Brad H, The Dalles, United States 04/10/2016

Reservation made via phone with a very helpful staffer. She accomplished the impossible to find a room for us with our pet. No rooms available anywhere due to a convention and activity in town :-( Our stay was very pleasant: very quiet room made for a good nights sleep. Breakfast was very good with area kept clean and well stocked. Express checkout was available but we just checked out at the front desk. This was fast and easy. We come here often to visit family in Fortuna and will make Best Western our first choice from now on...

"Modern Motel with the feel of an cozy Inn"

Marjorie S, SF Bay Area, United States 03/10/2016

This is a very inviting, pretty place to stay. The grounds are landscaped beautifully. It has the feel of an inn with the amenities of a larger hotel. The room was immaculate and comfortable. Microwave, nice refrig, fast & seamless WIFI. Breakfast included eggs, meat, fruit hot/cold cereal/yogurt. Excellent coffee available 24/7! Great looking pool/indoor spa that I did not sample. The staff were friendly and professional--every one of them. No, I do not work for them!

"Would stay there again"

User 02/10/2016

Clean, spacious rooms, everything in working order. The hot breakfast is very good and is not the same each morning, and I appreciated little things like a variety of jams (so often there's just grape), hazelnut flavoring for the coffee, herbal teas, whipped cream for the cocoa. There is also fruit and chocolate kisses in the lobby. There is a card to hang on the door to say what time you'd like your room made up. No noise from other rooms. Adequate parking. I would definitely stay there again.

"Nice place to stay if you have pets"

empresssharyl, San Francisco, California 24/09/2016

They serve a full breakfast, with eggs, sausage, ham, cereal, waffles, etc. They are pet friendly, and there's a nice walking area behind the hotel, along the Eel River. If you're looking for a central place to be while visiting the Redwoods, this is a good one.

"Our favorite hotel in this area!"

David C, Santa Rosa, United States 18/09/2016

We have stayed at this hotel every time we visit this area. The whole staff is friendly and helpful. the rooms are great, and the breakfast they offer is the best. No other hotel we've stayed in offers an on-site breakfast like this hotel.


User 09/09/2016

We made a late booking while driving. The room was Large, clean and fresh with an excellent mattress. Breakfast was a 10. All the usual items with better than average coffee and fresh fruit. Super clean place, nice recent updates to shower. Nice restaurant in walking distance. Can't beat it.

"Excellent room with soaking tub"

94121travel, San Francisco, California 05/09/2016

Had an excellent stay at this hotel. Used it as a base for travel to Avenue of the Giants, Grizzly Creek, etc. Room was comfortable, staff was nice, they served a hearty spread for breakfast. Minor quibbles: 1) My credit card didn't go through on the first try because "the transmitted a bad code" according to the card issuer, kind of annoying but have them run the card again 2) Very weird parking lot decorum, people just wandered around the parking lot regardless of where cars were, etc. and we even had a motorcycle park in such a way to block the entire entrance. So be careful!

"don't understand what your looking for"

I already answered this in my comments. My daughter, grandchildren and myself had a very nice stay. Everyone was so nice. Loved the bed and pillows. It was so nice to be able to get a full on breakfast. We had 2 small children, really nice not to have to pack them up to search out a restaurant . I would stay again.

"The Best of Best Western"

A8402NAwilliamg, Puyallup, Washington 30/08/2016

When traveling in northern California via US101 we always stop at the Best Western Country Inn in Fortuna, CA. Everything is top notch, to include the hot breakfast in the morning, and the personnel are always very friendly and helpful.

"Good stay."

L D, Seattle area 29/08/2016

Upon driving up to the property, it looked like a motel. But upon entering the room, it looked nicer. However, we were dismayed (and somewhat nervous) to see tons campers in tents!!! literally right outside the back bedroom window. I was concerned about security, since it was wooded and secluded. Also, since it's set up like a motel, we were awakened by people talking "loudly" right outside and below our room. Other than those issues, it was an okay overnight stay. We were disappointed in that we had requested a "quiet" room, and worked diligently to ensure that we would have that before arriving. Having experienced this hotel, we would stay somewhere else because of the noise. That being said, the beds were comfortable. We had a room they called a mother-in-law suite with a king bed in the main room and a queen bed in a separate bedroom. It was a treat for our teenage son, who'd been sleeping on sofa beds during our 2-week road trip. He enjoyed finally having a bed! The rooms are nicely decorated. All the extras were provided, including extra luggage racks - and a Nutter Butter candy. We appreciated all those amenities. Mostly, though, we were grateful for comfortable beds and a clean room! Thank you Best Western Country Inn!

"Basic clean and comfortable"

technovelist, Allen, Texas 27/08/2016

It was pretty noisy when we got there due to a number of motorcycles pulling in, but it calmed down before we went to bed. We stayed on the second (top) floor, so overhead noise wasn't a problem. The guest laundry was pretty expensive at about $4 total, and they had only one washer and dryer. However, the laundry room was clean and we got our load in right away, possibly because the web site for the hotel doesn't mention that they even have guest laundry facilities. The front desk had quarters so that wasn't a problem. The hotel had trash cans and recycling on the stairs, which was convenient.

"Not overpriced! Good value for the dollar."

Trup, New York, NY 19/08/2016

We knew in advance that this was not an elegant hotel; that said, we were very pleased by our two-night stay. Nice touches ---- disinfecting the TV remote is one example. Easy and free wifi. Much better breakfast options than most hotels at this level of lodging. Swimming pool worked well for our grandsons. The town of Fortuna is nothing special but it's proximity to the Avenue of the Giants, Ferndale, Scotia and the ocean made it a good place to stay.


travelerseattle, Seattel 17/08/2016

We stayed here because we had such a great experience at the Best Western in Arcata and we needed a place for one night on our way back to Seattle. Fortuna is a convenient stopover. We found this property to be overpriced as compared to the Arcata Best Western and not nearly as nice. The location is most surely just a stopover for travelers as it is surrounded by a field.

"Fantastically quiet, great beds n whirpool tub!"

friskabrock, St Helens, Oregon 16/08/2016

Planned a trip to the redwoods and really reasearched our best options for price and felt Best Western would do the trick. Upon arrival, found it clean, upkept grounds, lovely landscaping. Great smooth check in, well explained amenities and hours. One thing I thought may have been helpful was to be reminded/advised that the refrigerator is not left on to save power. No ussue with this in theory however not knowing until we went to place cold/frozen items in the cute and ample sized mini frig and saw the sign IN THE FRIG to turn it on was a bit of a set back. We had to wait a couple hours for it to cool down to use. Our room was well laid out and spotless. Soft robes, towels and sparkling apple juice n water to enjoy. The robes wrre great after using the whirlpool tub. It was soooo nice and relaxing after a day if travel. The bed linen was soft and not overly heavy yet cozy. The bed itself was firm n supportive yet confirming. Both my spouse and I struggle with 'concrete' like mistresses and we both slept very comfortably. Breakfast was pretty standard, scrambled eggs, sausage patties, bacon, hash browns, make your own waffles, yogart variety, hard boiled eggs, bread for toast l, cold cereal, juices, fruit, etc... All in all, ok flavor if the prepped hot items, nothing out of this world however very fresh n hot. The waffle batter actually had great flavor and their coffee was some of the best around!!! While we didn't have need for the pool or hot tub, it looked clean and was happy to see the pool was partially covered for either rain orrrrr on a scorching day so you could swim and not be in the sun. The hotel was super quiet despite being right off the freeway and access road to other hotels. We were in rm 229 at the top of the stairs which i was a bit concerned with but only heard a bit if noise of guests arriving. The only real noise We heard was the adjacent room's tv via the common wall. Rather surprising as it wasnt that loud yet could hear it easily even with ours on. It was was a plesant surprise at the nice, large flat screen tv. Unusual that the cable service had no guide other to what was on a station, only the channel station listing. Just had to keep going til you found something. Just an observation, certainly not a complaint ?? We were really thrilled at our choice and with the AAA discount, felt it was well worth the price we paid and we will definitely be returning. Only complaint would be the flowers growing at the enhances, while lovely, impeded your vision of Kenmar and made it very diffucult to safely see oncoming traffic. I saw others having the same trouble. Easy fix with some nippers ?? While we had no pet, they are pet friendly ????

"wonderful oasis in middle of nowhere"

dmc50, Brookings, Oregon 16/08/2016

great location with easy on and easy off freeway access. lovely landscaping and plenty of parking. friendly check in/check out staff, so welcome after traveling all day! room / shower / bed / amenities are wonderful. breakfast room can get a wee bit crowded - since it only seats 26. there are a few 'trays' available for lobby seats, if desired. there's not a heck of a lot or room to maneuver around the breakfast offerings. bacon AND sausage, yum. hash browns were very good. biscuits and gravy were there - i don't do those, but people seemed to really be enjoying them. variety of breads, bagels, yogurts, juices, plus waffles and fruit... you can't miss staying here. a great place!

"Very Good"

Rita H, Sacramento, United States 15/08/2016

Hotel was comfortable and we were able to have our small dog with us. We left a pair of earrings on the nightstand and were able to call the hotel and they found them and mailed them to me. They were concerned and courteous.

"No worries"

Nickie V, Los Osos, United States 15/08/2016

Did not want to leave. Stop with my son on the way home from a month vacation in Oregon and was pleasantly surprised to find this Best Western. Great room, asked for and got a quite corner room, the pool was an added surprise.

"Cool Fog,Warm Sunshine,Charming Town"

Suzette E W, camino,Ca, United States 13/08/2016

Fortuna sits on the northern Calif.coast.After completing a trip through the Redwoods and visiting my mothers redwood tree we planted after she left us we traveled north to Fortuna.Our room at the Best Western was ready,inviting and we were warmly welcomed.The evening fog was just arriving,slowly creeping over the hills.Dinner at the Eel River Brewing Pub ,a lively local place topped off an incredible day.

"Clean and good breakfast"

User 12/08/2016

Staff was very nice. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Bathroom was also clean. Outside exit doors to room; but safe area. Breakfast was very good with lots of options. We were glad we stayed here. The hotel was sold out during our stay, so we were glad we booked ahead. Other hotels in area did not look as nice.

"BEST WESTERN Country Inn"

allenmtb1, San Anselmo, CA, USA 09/08/2016

This was a great motel, The rooms had everything that we needed for a quick one night stay on our way to McCloud on motorcycles. Beds were very comfortable, typical good Best Western breakfast and within walking distance of a good restaurant.

"Great place"

James Y, Ontario, United States 06/08/2016

We enjoyed our time here, very clean and comfortable. Really good breakfast with scrambled eggs that actually had cheese on top and sausage that tasted like sausage. Overall this motel was a god value and it is close to many attraction the area provides

"Great Rooms, Sleepy Town."

TACLYO, Stratford, Connecticut 06/08/2016

The room itself was nice. Spacious. Clean. And they have that extra country touch by offering cookies in the main office and I even saw a package of Nutter Butters next to my ice bucket. This is an exterior door hotel, which wasn't a sound issue for me. I stayed here as a place to crash after driving the Avenue of the Giants. Only possible cons is the location. I will say, from my room there was a pretty view. Mile or so of fields, with cows literally across the street from my door. Behind them hills and trees. Very pretty. As for the town of Fortuna, it's a small town. Don't expect to paint it red at night. The movie theaters latest movie showings was 7pm on a weekday. They only had one operational pizza delivery place at the moment. It's a sleepy country town. Which is perfectly fine as long as you weren't staying in the area expecting to tear it up at night. If you're looking for a nice country view and to relax, it's great.

"Nice hotel, peaceful setting"

Lisa A, Glasgow, United Kingdom 05/08/2016

We (family of four) stayed here on a Seattle to San Francisco road trip. The hotel was clean and well kept and our room was comfortable and spacious. There is a small pool. Reception staff were ok but we had few dealings with them. There are a couple of restaurants nearby and shops in the centre of town. Breakfast was ok but there is not enough seating-we had to sit in reception as did others.

"Good stop closes 101 in Southern California"

User 05/08/2016

This is very nice hotel located close to 101 Hwy. - a good stop if you travel from OR to CA or other the other way. The rooms are spacious with everything what you need. The team running the hotel is very nice. Hotel offers also a good breakfast (full).

"Fortuna stay"

GS954, Santa Barbara, CA 03/08/2016

Stayed here one night on the way to Oregon and to sight-see in Redwoods. Very spacious room, absolutely great shower. Very clean. Lots of healthy food for breakfast; just a little cramped for seating. We even got to use our Best Western Travel Cards Reward that were not usable at some places in the next city.

"A great place to stay!"

glpjr59, Fresno CA 02/08/2016

Check-in was very efficient. The rooms were very clean. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The beds were very comfortable as were the excellent pillows. I would definitely stay there again.

"Not a bad deal"

User 31/07/2016

We have a large family and 2 dogs and were able to get a nice double room for a decent price. It was loud at night however with the people overhead stomping around and every time someone went up the steps outside it woke is all up because it was loud. The breakfast was good though and it was a nice size room with two bathrooms which was wonder to have. Neither Phone in the room worked which didn't matter but we thought it was odd. We were also warned not to touch one of the window sills because it had just been painted that day. All and all it was an average experience. We stayed at another BW the following night which was a really negative experience so I'm not sure we will try this chain again anytime soon.

"Great stay, great service, great value"

Linda S, Little River, United States 21/07/2016

Room was spotless, friendly staff, good location. We arrived after a long drive and the easy access was appreciated. The staff was helpful and the inn, pet friendly. The breakfast was the best I have had for complementary breakfasts. The staff hurried to keep the coffee fresh, eggs and other food replenished. Checkout painless.

"Nice Location"

DWNanney, Nuremberg, Germany 19/07/2016

excellent value, quiet, great staff, good food and drink within walking distance. Easy freeway access, US 101, but no noise from traffic. Great mattress, I did not want to get out of the bed because I was so comfortable.

"Nice Stay"

James M, Manteca, United States 19/07/2016

Good Hotel for the short term visit. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Located right off the highway with easy on/off access. I would recommend this hotel The only down side was that there isn't much around the hotel which on the positive side can be a good thing. It depends on the traveler.

"Coastal Gem"

juliA N, Ione, United States 19/07/2016

It is not easy to find a good hotel at a reasonable price in the Northcoast area of California. We discovered the Best Western Country Inn in Fortuna, Ca. and plan to make it our go to hotel in the Redwoods. The indoor-outdoor pool is great and the breakfast buffet was the best of all the hotels we used on this trip [ 6].

"Excellent place to stay"

H7000KGjamess, Pasadena, California 17/07/2016

A very pleasant place from all angles; super good breakfast; eggs, potatoes, bacon, Kona coffee, fresh fruit, waffle and such available. Nice indoor/outdoor pool, very good service and whistle clean. Easy to get to from US 101 Quiet, easy parking, just as pleasant as can be

"Staff Excellent, road noise not so much"

Tracy F, Sac City, United States 16/07/2016

The staff were very nice and professional. The only thing that bothered me was the road noise. I tried to use the check out on the tv and it didn't work. Room was clean and had everything that you need. The refrigerator in the room keep everything ice cold.

"Cute, clean hotel"

wan2cruise, Burnsville, MN 14/07/2016

The Best Western is within walking distance to at least 2 restaurants, and to a gas station. The property is very clean and the rooms are large and comfortable. Our check in and check out experience was very quick, and the staff was super-friendly. We were on an end unit, which had some road noise, but it quieted down at night. The bed is very comfortable. They also have breakfast in the morning with various items from which to choose. The only downfall to that is a limited seating area, but folks seemed to do quite well.

"Definitely recommend"

Ariel B, Watsonville, California 13/07/2016

Attractive décor in office and grounds (rooms were nothing special). Interesting indoor/outdoor pool. Great breakfast. Very friendly staff in office, kitchen and housecleaning. Bed was super comfortable and rooms were quite ample. Bathroom was very clean. Only disappointment was that the Jacuzzi area closed at 10pm, which is quite standard, but we arrived at 10:40pm after a horrendous drive through fog over the mountain between Petrolia and Fortuna and all day long I'd been looking forward to that Jacuzzi. Oh well, next time!

"Not worth the price"

Ron S, Santa Rosa, California 13/07/2016

We stayed here on during one of our trips to Oregon and although it was nice, it wasn't worth the price. We had a choice of a room with or without a Jacuzzi and chose the room with, for $20 extra, as we had been packing and loading and my back was sore. It turned out that the jets were on my feet, right knee and left hip. To get any of the jets on my back, I had to drain about 1/3 of the water and twist around with my head almost underwater. The room itself was nice and clean but nothing special. Breakfast was very good with lots of selections although the eggs had ham in it, so my wife who is Jewish, couldn't have them. Overall, I was not impressed. I've stayed in Super 8s that were almost as nice and for less than 1/2 the price. With the money saved I could have gotten a massage and been way ahead.

"Super clean rooms with helpful staff"

Ewatsonclan, Southampton, United Kingdom 12/07/2016

Super, large, well appointed room with fridge, microwave etc. Staff were very helpful and obviously knew the area well and were able to offer constructive advice of where to go eat or visit. Breakfast was buffet style but a HUGE choice - cereals,fruit juices, fresh fruit, variety of cooked choices, various breads. Staff were excellent at breakfast and we saw them going out of their way to help some young people make their choices. Highly recommend this hotel

"visiting family in Fortuna,Ca, stayed overnight in Fortuna"

Gregory B, Susanville, California 11/07/2016

Our stay at the Best Western in Fortuna was very nice, the room was clean and spacious, bed was very comfortable, internet worked well, Breakfast was very good, room was rather small, trays were provided to make your plate and take to room, which was very nice, they obviously know room can't seat many, definitely would stay again

"Great place to stay in Fortuna"

S David F, Salinas, United States 11/07/2016

It was comfortable, clean, well maintained. Coffee is 24/7 (what more can you ask for!). I'd stay there again. Couldn't find any faults with the room. Pet friendly too. Also has picnic areas with barbecue grills.

"Really nice and comfortable stay"

clee7903, Vancouver, Canada 10/07/2016

One of the few best hotel/inn I've been. The room is spacious with one of the most comfortable beds. Bathroom offers a variety of hand soaps, hand lotion and even your own tooth brushing kit. Our stay came with breakfast and it was great. With cereals, bacon, eggs, hashbrown, sausage patties and many more choices. Strong wifi that does not drop off. I can actually surf the net.

"Great getaway"

Hans C, Boise, United States 10/07/2016

For the area the price was very reasonable. The breakfast was good as most Best Western Plus locations are. The jacuzzi king room was great. After doing lots of walking and hiking, it was nice to unwind with a glass of wine in the in-room jacuzzi, which was not much more expensive than the regular king room. The only thing to watch out for is the window looking out over the parking lot lets in a little too much sound, so if you're sleeping late, you may be disturbed.

"Excellent experience"

User 08/07/2016

All ratings are excellent. There is some road noise to contend with and also on hotter nights, refrigerated trucks may be running their AC during the night. If parked closed to the motel, it can be annoying.

"Best Ever"

JALFAN, Sumner, Washington 07/07/2016

At check in you know this is a will run property. The desk staff is friendly and helpful. Our room was as requested 2nd floor quite room. We had room 214 very nicely furnished King room and was quite. Wi-Fi service was very good. Breakfast is served in a nice room and had a good choice of food. There is a coffee in the lobby with cookies in the afternoon. Will return

"Granddaughters wedding was in the area"

Sharon B, Yreka, United States 04/07/2016

For the most part this is a nice place to stay. Close to a few restaurants that are in walking distance. A nice place to also walk along the Ell River with or without a pet. Close to town and some other sight seeing places are also close.

"Wonderful Suite!"

User 22/06/2016

We stayed in the suite with my in-laws & my two children. It was perfect! The kids bunked on the couch leaving two separate bedrooms for each of the adult couples. The only downside was sharing one bathroom between 6 people. The breakfast the next morning was quite nice & they even had breakfast sandwiches, which were perfect as we needed to leave quickly in the morning!

"THIS Best Western is the Best!"

PixelRandy, Santa Rosa, California 22/06/2016

We stayed for three nights and were really pleased throughout our stay. My wife's mother recently moved to Fortuna so we're really happy that such a nice hotel is in Fortuna. Some key points: - Room was very clean and like how all the bedding is washed including - Even the TV remote is wiped down and put in its own cubby - Very quiet - Short two minute walk to a nice walking path along the Eel River - Pretty good brewery just five minutes by foot - Close to town, but not right in town. I prefer this as it feels more secluded while town is only a minute drive on the other side of the freeway. - Free snacks were a plus and the breakfast items were pretty decent. Even had plain greek yogurt without any extra ingredients. It's worth the few extra bucks a night over the other hotels in town. Absolutely zero complaints.

"Great place"

Luckydog28, Millbrae, California, United States 21/06/2016

I stayed with some friends to do a fun drive on Highway 36 to Red Bluff. We booked the rooms and were very pleasantly surprised. The rooms are pretty large and in pretty new condition. When we checked in there was a bowl of fruit and some cookies in the lobby, which was very welcoming. The surroundings are nice and quiet and the grounds of the hotel are very clean and well kept. There is an interesting pool with half of it indoor and the other half outdoor. The breakfast was very satisfying with eggs, waffles, cereal, etc. I would definitely want to stay again if in the area.

"Visiting daughter at the CCC"

We stayed 2 nights here while visiting my daughter. It was great and we had two large dogs with. we were very happy they had a pet area, clean rooms and a great breakfast! Will stay again and recommend.

"Wonderful motel"

JodiJo2014, Tequesta, Florida 15/06/2016

Stayed here for one night and wanted to stay longer. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, everything was top notch. Quiet and peaceful. Cookies and coffee available at check in. Highly recommend this establishment.


Zapper007, Winchester, Oregon 09/06/2016

There are many brands of hotels/motels and they all have their “pitch.” BEST WESTERN FORTUNA is in their own class. Clean, quiet and a great place to stay. Good food nearby, (Ell River Brewery) You'll wake up rested and ready to go! What more can you ask for?!!

"This is Best Western best hotel PERIOD"

isenhopk, anaheim, california 08/06/2016

clean, great service, large room, quiet, close to interstate, I can't say enough how this is a great hotel for the price. This hotel is close to both Ferndale and the ocean. Please see both. STAY here for a beatiful hotel

"Amazing Staff"

Becky F, United States 05/06/2016

This Best Western is more like a B&B. I've never seen so much staff at one locations all actively assisting in making the stay pleasant. Housekeeping and grounds staff/maintenance and front desk are always all hands on deck. The rooms are spacious and clean. The complimentary breakfast is all inclusive; fresh fruit, hot eggs and meats, make your own waffles and oatmeal. The lobby always has fresh coffee. In the morning there's apples available, in the evening there's fresh cookies. They have infused water too. The laundry on site is well maintained and the dryer works very well. The pool is half inside with a swim under plexi-glass wall to the outside area. A river walk 3/4 mile trail is just a tenth of a mile up the road. The Eel river Brewing company is a block away with a great menu. A gas station is a block away too, with a mini mart. Town is a mile away with grocery stores and pharmacies.

"One night in Fortuna"

User 03/06/2016

We rested our heads here on our drive up the coast. Not only was it more reasonably priced than the other comparable hotels a little further north, but it was in a more scenic location. Staff were friendly, our room was clean, and it had all of the little extra amenities that make the difference. We'd stay here again.

"Pleasant surprise!"

Judy C, White Oak, Pennsylvania 03/06/2016

We were looking for a "decent" hotel to spend the night. We happened upon this hotel and were surprised to find the staff and accommodations wonderful! The staff could not have been more helpful. The facility was quiet as for most who travel a lot have this as a concern. Would recommend to anyone passing through!

"Best Best Western Yet!"

Barbara B, Ventura, United States 29/05/2016

We loved this hotel. Great service, fresh cookies and chocolate every afternoon in the lobby. Wide range of breakfast items, including a hot egg dish. Staff was great in every aspect of the operations - friendly, helpful. Room was clean and pleasant. This was the best Best Western yet, for us!

"A true pleasure"

Mshowmts, Silver Spring, Maryland 26/05/2016

Beautiful room and grounds -- lovely landscaping. Very friendly, helpful staff. Lovely riverwalk path close by. Staff recommended a local Mexican restaurant, La Costa. The food there was the best Mexican food we've ever had, by far. Don't miss it.

Wlknboots, San Martin 24/05/2016

A great spot right off the beaten path to spend the night. Large clean rooms with a nice decor. Beds are comfortable and spotless. Coffee in the room and full breakfast. A short distance from the brewery that is a real treat after a long drive. Not cheap but not overly expensive

"Unbelievable for the price!"

Debbie L, Osceola 19/05/2016

We were driving north on Hwy 101 and wanting to find a place to stay. It was getting late and many places were booked. I read the past reviews of the Best Western Country Inn (Fontana, CA)...all excellent! So, I decided to call. The Best Western rep was extremely helpful and very pleasant...wish I could remember his name (used to live in MN). When we arrived at 9 pm, the front desk clerk was there to greet us. He offered us beverages... coffee, tea, water. We walked into our room and couldn't believe how exceptionally clean, very well decorated, and added touches it had...table and 2 chairs, microwave, fridge, state of the art tv, even right down to the Nutter Butter cookies by the coffee pot! A full breakfast was included in the morning. Wish we had more time to stay!

"Business and pleasure"

Al F, Paradise, CA, United States 18/05/2016

Great place to stay. Price was right. The breakfast was fantastic. Friendly and helpful staff. The Motel is in a nice area. We will stay there again. This is the best place to stay on Riverwalk Drive. Close to a lot of things to do in the area.

"Better than expected"

User 16/05/2016

I read some reviews so my expectations were for something not quite as nice. This property was clean. The staff was helpful. We had a noisy neighbor above us, but the staff took care of it. Nice large spacey rooms.

"Clean Comfortable and Friendly"

Brian G, Central Valley, United States 11/05/2016

Our stay at the Best Western Country Inn, Fortuna, CALIFORNIA was excellent due to nicely maintained buildings and grounds. The hotel staff were all very accommodating, and seemed to be generally friendly people that always greeted us with a smile, a hello or a good morning. We felt very much at home, and will surely stay at this hotel again in the future when we visit the Eureka area.

"Exceptional Visit"

Barbara B B, Aloha, Oregon 09/05/2016

We were on the road for 10 days this time and the Country Inn in Fortuna was by far the best. We would stay here again anytime. We were in an end room and I was worried the highway noise would be bothersome but the soundproofing was great. No problems at all.

"Spacious, clean, nice"

Matt M, Petaluma, United States 09/05/2016

Very large rooms, clean and tastefully decorated. Very comfortable beds. Very pleasant staff. Not fancy or cute but everything you need. Breakfast was okay- I stuck with the cereal. Some noise from neighboring rooms but there's no getting away from that at a hotel/motel.

"Great hotel....very pet friendly!"

Edith P, Fortuna, United States 08/05/2016

We had a wonderful stay at Best Western Fortuna, California. The best pet friendly hotel we have very stayed in. Room was excellent and breakfast was great. Staff was courteous and helpful. We will stay at this hotel again!

"Decent Place To Stay"

User 04/05/2016

This hotel was clean, but in serious need of updating. The desk staff seemed overworked and not able to adequately handle waiting customers. There is a laundry facility on-site, which was nice, since we were on a road trip. Breakfast area was too small and crowded.

"Great Hotel - Close to Redwoods"

Vancouver_WaSubee, vancouver, wa 03/05/2016

We love this hotel for our semi-frequent trips to the Avenue of the Giants Marathon. The hotel is quiet, close to the Avenue, has friendly staff and a good inclusive breakfast. The staff are helpful. Overall an awesome experience for us.

"A great stay"

Breanna H, Vancouver, United States 03/05/2016

A group of friends and I needed a place to stay and choose the Best Western Country Inn. We splerged and got a suite and we very happy with our choice. The room was wonderful. Having 2 seperate bedrooms and a sitting area gave us plenty of room. The room was clean and lovely. I wouls stay there are again next time I'm in the area.

"Good night stay"

kruizerkarol, Camino, California 27/04/2016

Decided on this hotel based on like of Best Western hotels. Room was good, nice size, clean, no problems. Good shower, hot water with good pressure. Internet worked good.No noise problems, pretty quiet. Breakfast was usual fare, nothing special.

"Better than expected"

Eileen M, Randolph, Massachusetts 18/04/2016

I am usually a Marriott person but we were visiting the Redwood forest and there were none around the Fortuna area. I was pleasantly surprised when I checked in there was a bowl of fruit and fresh cookies in the lobby along w with complimentary coffee and tea all day. The room was clean and spacious with fridge and microwave. The complimentary breakfast was also better than expected, eggs and waffles and more. Great place for a family.

"Very pleasant stay"

vegangrl, Keizer, Oregon 13/04/2016

One of the nicest Best Westerns we used. Very clean and attractive, hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. Nice breakfast with plenty of fruit. The room was spacious, clean and quiet. We had a small problem with the TV remote and the desk clerk came right away and replace the batteries, which solved the problem. It was close enough to the local Brewery that we we able to walk there for a great dinner.

"Trip to see family"

Sharon B, Yreka, United States 12/04/2016

My family lives in the area and this makes it easy to go from one family to another. This trip I had two family members birthdays to attend. Walking distance to to restaurants and close to town for other shopping. Good walk along the river.

"5 Star Stay!"

User 10/04/2016

My husband and I stayed a this motel for three days in mid March and again for a week at Easter. We had a King room on the first visit and 2 Queens on the second. Both rooms were large and well appointed. We had a microwave and a refrigerator with a separate freezer. The breakfast room looks out on a lovely garden with bird baths and feeders. Breakfast is ample and VERY well cooked. In addition to all the breakfast items homemade desserts were supplied very day. The best thing about this hotel is the staff. They want your stay to be comfortable and go out of their way to accommodate your every need. This motel merits revisits.

"Fortuna Fortunate!"

Cameron B, Sacramento, California 10/04/2016

We arrived on a road trip. Pleasant and quiet. It is located south of the City of Fortuna in a nice business/light industrial area. Lots of other motels near it. A small shopping center is about 1 mile east of here. The main city is about 2 miles northwest of here. The night we stayed the rooms were filled. Yet, everyone seemed tired and quiet. Noticed a PG&E crew spending the night as well as a couple of California correctional officers. There is an indoor/outdoor pool. Within walking distance of Eel River Brewery. The desk people are very helpful. Ice water and cookies served during the day. Everything in our room worked. Besides getting a good nights sleep, the breakfast was phenomenal. Quite a spread of different things to choose from. You won't go away hungry. Good coffee selection as well. Great base to stay at if you are visiting the area for a few days to such spots as the Victorian town of Ferndale, the ocean, or the "Avenue of the GIANTS" redwood trees. Clean and comfortable. You are in a tsunami zone.

"Very pleasant stay"

Weekender51, Eureka 05/04/2016

I spent one night here and enjoyed it. I didn't have a reservation so I took whatever they had. That turned out to be a 'disabled' room (queen bed). The room was enormous as was the bathroom. I guess that is because the room needs to be able to accommodate wheel chairs, etc. The bed was lovely and the television was loaded with channels. The owners even provided a small package of cookies on the coffee tray. Nice touch. The only downside was a bit humorous as well as annoying, It turns out, there is a gigantic garbage dumpster located behind the property and directly under the bathroom window of the room. When something is deposited in the dumpster, CROWS from everywhere descend on it and very loudly voice their opinions. In essence a Crow Party! I would stay here again and I recommend it.

sharrie310, Manager at BEST WESTERN Country Inn, responded to this review
So happy you enjoyed your stay with us. Everyone really works hard to make all of our guests feel comfortable. As for our little crow friends all I can say is they are a really naughty bunch. They have discovered that we have treats stocked on our carts and they hang around and do their best to steal some cookies whenever they can manage. We try to cover and hide them to discourage them from hanging around but the little buggers are supper smart. Hopefully they will move on to easier meals. Hope to have you as a guest again soon.

"Best Western At It's Best!"

MickeyP_13, Fresno 30/03/2016

As a person who stays at well over 100 nights in hotels, I very seldom give 5 stars. This property has earned it. I will give all the pro's and there will be no con's, simply because I can find none. Easy on and off freeway, fast and friendly check in and out, great rooms and given at a fair price, very clean. Easy parking, paper deliver to room, on the door handle not the floor. Pool and spa, half enclosed, very cool. Lobby is inviting and has local info available. Restaurants and gas within a couple blocks. Downtown within a couple miles. Breakfast, well they say full hot breakfast, and that is no joke. Better than one would expect. Full buffet, eggs, sausage, bacon, hash browns, waffles, gravy, boiled eggs, pastry, breads, yogurt and very fresh coffee. This will be my go to hotel when in this area. Great job to all at this hotel.

"We really enjoyed our stay"

Cassie B, Eureka, United States 28/03/2016

We had a wonderful night. The front desk lady was kind and helpful at check-in, she even joked around with my son a little and offered him a cookie. The room was clean and smelled very nice. We rented the room so my son could go swimming and we were very pleased with the pool area. The and hot tub were both super clean. The bathroom in the pool room was also super clean and we really appreciated that.

"Only visiting family"

Nathan J, Benicia, United States 27/03/2016

The beds were to hard and my back started hurting from sleeping on it. The internet was slow during the night and was almost dead at around 9:30pm. I'd been about as good sleeping on the floor vs the bed. The ISP in the location need to up their game if they want to compete in today's world.

"Fortuna Accommodations"

User 22/03/2016

Well kept hotel with very friendly and accommodating staff. They had a very good hot breakfast, including not overmicrowaved eggs like you get at too many places. The biscuits and gravy and breakfast sandwiches were surprisingly good. We had a large group that had trekked to Fortuna for a fabulous wedding for my neice, which was walking distance from the event facilities. Just a few minutes walk to the Eel River that has a levee on which you can take a walk or walk your pet. Had a great time!

"A Good Place to feel save and confortable."

John O, Oroville, United States 12/03/2016

Would not stay any other place. Staff was very supportive. Had and nice area for our dogs. Any questions we asked the staff gave us was so helpful. This is a major stop for us when traveling the coast. We have told friend about this Best Western and all have thank us for the recommendation. They also enjoyed their stay as much as us.

"A Great Place to Stay"

carlandkarl, Yachats, Oregon 10/03/2016

We have stayed here many times. The rooms are spacious, clean and very well appointed. The country setting is beautiful as well as quiet. We travel with a pet and are always pleased with the kind and generous treatment we receive.

"Reliably good night's rest"

User 29/02/2016

We've stayed here on two separate occasions. Both times it was clean and quiet and the breakfast has enough choices so that almost anyone could find something that works for them. It's a good stop over on a road trip. We had dinner at the Eel River Brewing Co. It was nice to be able to walk after a day of driving.

"Quiet, Professional, Friendly Place"

Gerald D, Lakeport, United States 26/02/2016

We love this facility and stay here at least once per year. The staff is super friendly and professional. The hotel exterior is very clean and the rooms very clean as well. Ample parking. The experience we have is always positive and we always look forward to our next visit. And get HOMEMADE cookies in the office - delicious!

"10 Star"

trip72011, Santa Rosa, California 17/02/2016

This BW in Fortuna, CA. Is one of the Best BW. The Staff are excellent in Customer Service, and are the very kind, and in al,l the Staff will go out of there way to make sure you are comfortable. When I stay at a Hotel, this is what I look for, Decent Clean Staff Quality of Rooms 5 Star. But Best Western in Fortuna deserves a 10 Star

"The Best Best Western"

Wordfreak, Northbay 16/02/2016

This hotel is walking distance to Eel River brewing company which is a huge bonus. We have motorcycled all over the western United States and we normally only stay at Best Westerns. I can truthfully say that this Hotel is one best Best Westerns.

"Great place for families"

User 08/02/2016

We stayed at this hotel for a friend's wedding. They had a block of rooms for out of town guests and family. The room was great. Very clean and spacious. The complimentary breakfast offered plenty of variety for everyone. The indoor pool was a great place for the kids to have fun, even in rainy weather!

"Lodging in Humboldt County"

SANDPIPERJOURNEYS, Carmichael, California 08/02/2016

Fortuna is located south of Eureka and near Ferndale, both fun areas to visit. A bit off the noisy highway, this Best Western is an ideal place to stay. A great breakfast gives one a wide choice of items and the rooms are comfortable with good beds. The grounds are very pleasant and bird feeders attract a number of colorful species of birds including Chestnut-backed Chickadee and White-crowned Sparrow.

"Best Western Country Inn"

Michael M, Susanville, United States 04/02/2016

Clean hotel. Nice Breakfast. Always enjoy staying here when traveling for work or for fun. The breakfast is simple but more than just a waffle. Usually eggs, meat, potatoes, or other option, waffles, bagels, pastries, yogurt, cereal, etc... They have something for everyone.

"Great staff, good breakfast variety, but...."

unka88, Portland, Oregon 28/01/2016

Pros - Housekeeping fantastic. Breakfast great with good variety - eggs and breakfast meats, carbs and fruit. Friendly and attentive front desk staff. Cons - Thin walls, easy to hear neighbors next to you speaking either on phones or with each other. This hotel is a hub for many utility, tradespersons, and craftpersons that drive big trucks and get up at the crack of dawn. It seems to be a customary practice for many of these companies to back up loud trucks as close to their room as possible. The result is usually an unwelcome wake up call as you will hear and feel the vibration from these trucks as the employees warm up their vehicles and go to breakfast. My only other complaint would be the location. To get to Fortuna proper, you have to pass through a confusing on/off ramp system that is extremely dark and poorly marked especially at night. I have been traveling forever and I was particularly vexed by the confusing layout of this CA system. This is not the hotel's fault. I recommend earplugs for the early morning bathroom break when things are quiet before the early morning storm!

"Very Comfortable stay"

janetdinah, Thornbury, United Kingdom 15/01/2016

The room was large with very comfy king size bed, Microwave,fridge and coffee machine. Biscuits and newspaper always provided. Towels were plentiful fluffy and large. In the reception was also free coffee and biscuits and fruit. Breakfast was the best we've had in Californian hotels. Rooms cleaned well and all staff very friendly. There was a guest laundry, heated swimming pool. We stayed there 5 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Hotel is a good centre for visiting redwoods "avenue of the Giants" and the beautiful coast at Eurika and Trinidad CA . Don't miss the lagoons and Patrick's Point.

"Pet friendly, clean rooms, friendly staff"

Lisa R, Ukiah, United States 06/01/2016

So pleased that this place is pet friendly!! The weather had turned on us and we had to pull up the tent! The rooms were clean, I thought pet friendly there would be some smells, but nothing, very clean. Staff was accommodating.

"Great Stay"

Cathy R, Fortuna, United States 04/01/2016

We stayed here while attending a wedding in a neighboring town. The reception was just across from the hotel so it was a handy location for us. Everything was just what we would expect from a Best Western. Clean and comfortable. Breakfast was nice as well.


Kim H, Fortuna, United States 29/12/2015

Very nice and comfortable. The hotel staff were very friendly and the breakfast had a variety of items to choose from. Best Western is the only hotel we stay at and we have never been disappointed in our stays there.

"Best Hotel in the Area"

JBEE57, Fairfield, California 28/12/2015

If your looking to stay in a larger city around Fortuna, don't bother. Check this hotel out. I was skeptical the first time I booked but once I checked in I was not disappointed. This hotel books up fast so don't wait if your visiting the general area. I've stayed twice with in a year visiting family and each time I've stayed I have been very pleased. Its not fancy. Its very comfortable, clean, affordable and quite. The location of the hotel is easy to get to.

"Mine inspections"

Steven H, Vacaville, United States 22/12/2015

I travel all over. Best Westerns are one that I stay a great deal at. This property is one that I will return to. Last time it had a very good breakfast. Fortuna is the land of the C crain radio company. Not all that far from the ocean. Life is good when you can just live it.


trip72011, Santa Rosa, California 15/12/2015

Excellence in all I highly recommend this hotel for all your travels if in the area. They go out of there way to make you comfortable. Very pleasant at check in. I have stayed in this hotel often. I will conintue for business and family time

"Superb Best Western in Fortuna, CA"

Larry C, Gleneden Beach, Oregon 02/12/2015

Great Inn with the best hotel breakfast of any we have ever used. Outstanding beds, and great staff. We always stay at the Best Western Country Inn during our trips to Carmel Valley, California. There are always cookies and coffee in the lobby as well as fresh fruit. The rooms always have a nice selection of snacks (usually oreos) in them upon arrival. We love this Inn.

"good value if booked online=nice breakfast"

User 30/11/2015

breakfast and treats in the room.. lobby always has coffee/tea/cocoa. makes it really convenient and homey. location is pretty decent for Humboldt county.. not too far away from the redwoods and definitely nice to be out of eureka. they have a pool and hot tub.. but it gets pretty busy. overall the staff is pleasant enough, the rooms are sanitary, and it is a good value stay.

"Clean, clinical and functional"

Roger S, Novato, United States 26/11/2015

Everything was ready, organized and they delivered on their promises. Enough parking, near gas station, keyless entry. Linen clean. Vending machies close by, breakfast room small but well displayed and arranged.

"Nice Spot"

Alice R, Santa Rosa, California 24/11/2015

We came to Fortuna for one night to attend a funeral nearby. My friend had stayed at this place before and recommended it. Very nicely appointed room. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom clean. A hot breakfast the next day was the price. The motel is near a brew pub, restaurants and a casino. A nice river walk is across the road. It's very well situated, not far from the downtown. This motel chain has been around for a long time. Many have been remodeled and updated like this one. You never know what to expect. Our expectations were met and then some.


Sharon B, Yreka, United States 18/11/2015

I always stay at the Best Western in Fortuna the rooms are nice and it is close to the Redwoods, ocean and many other beautiful places to see and walk too. Great places to eat within walking distances.

"Great Stay"

John H, shelton, United States 10/11/2015

Good location for our planned event, nicely appointed room, very helpful staff, clean and appealing property, recommend this property to anyone passing through or recreating or doing business in the area.

"friendly hotel in a friendly town"

Valerie D, Sonora, United States 10/11/2015

It's always a gamble when you book a hotel but we could not have picked better than the Best Western Country Inn for a two-night stay in Fortuna. The room was exceptionally clean, and the staff was very friendly. I'd even put a plug in for the Funky Monkey restaurant next door--pizza good and all you can eat organic salad bar was a steal for the price.

"Great Place"

michaeltK9210BV, Lincoln, Nebraska 30/10/2015

This place was great! Everything about it exceeded our expectations. It was clean, pleasant and very well run. It was by far the best place we stayed during a driving trip that spanned 18 days and 5000 miles. We would love to go back.

"Superb as I expect every time"

Stefaine C, Logan, United States 27/10/2015

This is not the first time I have stayed at this hotel. My husband and I stayed at this same hotel back in 2000. There have been updates to the rooms which were nice before and are nice now. Beds are always very comfortable. I like it that this hotel chain has across the board standards so I can expect similar stays. My daughter and I stayed this time and it was just as memorable than the first. Thank you

"Conveniently Located off Highway 101"

M Q, Buffalo, NY 25/10/2015

Nothing fancy but clean and comfortable with all the amenities you could want. A complimentary breakfast is served in the lobby building. There is a small souvenir area in the lobby with reasonably priced items from the area. The hotel staff recommended a brewery/bar restaurant just down the street...very convenient with good food and service.

"Excellent Service"

trip72011, Santa Rosa, California 24/10/2015

The Hote; Staff is excellent in Customer Service. I highly recommend this hotel. Very Clean. The pool is delightful and is so clean as well as the hot tub. They all,make you feel so comfortable. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

"This is the place to stay"

Susan M, Las Vegas, Nevada 23/10/2015

This is the place to stay in the Ferndale/Eureka /Fortuna area. Not overpriced,very very clean, smiling helpful staff, delicious hot breakfast and peace and quiet. Location is handy too. The facilities are well maintained and having outside entrances to the rooms was fine. Normally we don't like outside entrances but this felt safe.

"Perfect location,clean and comfy"

GuteReisen, Las Vegas 17/10/2015

This hotel is in a great location for exploring the surrounding area. It is very clean, hats off to the cleaning staff. The desk staff were always friendly and helpful, plus nice to have cookies and fruit in the lobby. A welcome treat after driving all day. It was quiet too. Oh and the breakfast choices are huge. Two waffle machines, fresh bagels, croissants, raisin bread, eggs, bacon, yogurt and cold cereal. Nobody leaves hungry. We were very happy with our stay and would recommend this hotel to others.


alturosandoval, california 13/10/2015

this is a very nice hotel. Big rooms. We had our dog with us. Girl at the front desk brought out badly if dog treats and asked if I wanted any. Then she offered coffee, fruit, cookies and candy. The grounds are kept well and staff are friendly. The breakfast was good. Lots of choices.

"Convenient, clean and quiet"

User 12/10/2015

This hotel is right off the highway, but far enough away not to be too noisy. The staff were helpful, my room was very clean and comfortable, and the free breakfast was ample. I was able to walk to a great little brew pub with wonderful food, and to the nearby conference venue where I was speaking. Close to a lovely river walk too.

"Great stay"

Gale W, Minden, Nevada 12/10/2015

My husband and I came to Fortuna on a business trip for 8 nights. We stayed in a room with a Jacuzzi. It was very relaxing after a long day. We had to extend our stay and the office staff was very helpful. They were able to keep us in the same room. I spent a lot of time in the room and it was very comfortable. The cleaning and maintenance staff were all very friendly and helpful. We were allowed to have our dog in the room for a one time fee. I enjoyed having him with me. There is a riverwalk close by that we walked every day. They also have a delicious breakfast. Eggs,waffles, bacon, sweet breads and more! I would recommend this hotel to everyone visiting the area.


dingo2244, Jonesboro, GA 10/10/2015

On our road trip from Seattle, Washington to San Francisco, California, we stayed in mostly Best Westerns along the way. This was a good choice and we were happy with our selection. We would stay again if we were in the area.

"Clean and comfortable"

Todnick, Boston, Massachusetts 07/10/2015

We stayed for one night in Fortuna as we were exploring northern California and the redwood forests. It's a fairly typical Best Western motel. Check-in was smooth. The room was a good size and there were plenty of towels and toiletries. We had a king bed which was comfortable. Breakfast is included and they do a nice job. They had eggs, waffles, breakfast meats, and all kinds of breads and muffins plus coffee and juices. The area was clean and everything was good to start the day. The hotel is close to a number of sites including the redwoods, so it was very conveniently located. For a quick stay or even a longer stay, this hotel will do the trick.

"great stays"

Judith G, highland, ny, United States 07/10/2015

comfortable. nice. relaxing. pool and hot tubs the best enjoyable quiet roomy showers are great meals in morning fine. and found one with evening wine and cheese. very nice plus... will stay again heading back from ca to east coast via caar


David H, MADANG, Papua New Guinea 06/10/2015

Why do AMERICAN hotels let people sleep with animals in their hotel rooms? Not just dogs, but all sorts of animals , from miniature horses, geese,ducks, potbellied pigs, cattle and other ruminants to lizards. They all get to sleep in a room if their owners call them "Service Animals" Even ducks. A service duck. Who even heard of such a thing? What type of 'Service" can a duck perform? Ridiculous yet all these animals are allowed to sleep in hotel rooms.

"Road trip"

Trawlergirl, York, Pennsylvania 29/09/2015

Very nice BW with little extras. No elevator, so get a room on first floor if you don't want to lug stuff up the steps. Nice big room with a separate sink area. Great beds, shower and air conditioning. Breakfast was great! Selection of fruit, plus the usual items. The plus were some homemade goodies at breakfast. I like that they have a dispenser in shower with shampoo, conditioner and show gel.

"Nice stop along the Redwood Hwy"

Lisa S, Albany, Oregon 29/09/2015

We booked online through the motels website and got a cheaper rate than when I called the hotel directly. Be aware they will charge your credit card an additional $20 incidental fee when you check in, which I am still waiting to have removed. Breakfast was excellent- biscuits & gravy, bacon, sausage, eggs, waffles, yogurt, bagels, too much to list. Staff was friendly. Room was clean and large with 2 queen beds. We were on the first floor and room was quiet. My biggest complaint is they advertise the motel as smoke free, but they allow guests to smoke on the property (on benches right outside the rooms, in parking lot, on stairs). To me, this is not smoke free when you have to smell and walk through the smoke- YUCK! Great location if you are planning a trip to the Redwoods. Easy on and off Hwy 101. Close to restaurants, gas stations, etc.

"Comfortable and quiet"

EWL05, Fresno, California 28/09/2015

We had the last room in the corner in the back which was quiet and private. Room was nice typical hotel room. Comfortable and clean but nothing special. Several nie restaurants within walking distance. Staff were very cheerful and helpful. Price of room included full breakfast in their dining room. Quite nice.

"Excellent stop off point"

Jane K, Telford, United Kingdom 25/09/2015

Great place to stay between Praire Creek state forest & Humboldt Avenue of Giants. Reception very friendly and rooms big and clean if a little dark. A slight problem of hearing the neighbours but all was quiet by 10 pm. Eel River restaurant and bar within 10 min walk.

"nice quiet place to stay in a country like setting"

frozone, tacoma 22/09/2015

were on a motorcycle trip to the redwoods, used this place as a base for two nights. comfortable rooms and quiet at night away from traffic, is in a nice country setting close to eel river.. breakfast was good and staff were helpful and friendly. about 15 miles from avenue of the giants. would highly recommend this best western.
