I’ve read all the reviews prior to booking the room here at Clarion Hotel in Eureka At first I was worried about the Negative comments first and it seems to be the “Smell” of the rooms that worried me Since other higher cost hotels was all booked up, I called the Clarion hotel and ask about the Negative reviews of the room being “smell” of smoking in the rooms and the front desk person assured me that the Outside Rooms do have some scents of smoke smell, But the rooms in the Main building did not have the smoking smell as it was always a Non-smoking for the internal rooms in the Lobby Building

So I booked the room for the 1 night stay with our fingers crossed When we arrived, yes the building was a little outdated, but for the price and the location, it fit the standard Our party check into 2 rooms and as promised they got us a adjoining roomsWhen I checked into the rooms, I DID NOT SMELL ANY SMOKE smell It was like any other Non-smoking room As for the room being Outdated, it was as good as a 4 of 5 star hotel can be Everything in the room works and for the price vs other higher priced hotel in the city, it’s a good price The hotel has Hot Breakfast so it’s a added plus The swimming pool is outside in the other building which at first inwas disappointment, but realized the pool has to be shared w/ other guests from the 2 other Outside building so putting it in the main building wouldn’t get them access to the poolOverall, this Clarion hotel is NOT AS BAD AS THE REVIEWS SAY IT IS (FOR THE interior hotel rooms in the Main building) Yes, I would stay here again in the future (only if price stay below other 2 local hotel Holiday and Best Western)

Gloria Connors

I have never tried a Clarion hotel before but I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel in Eureka CA We were driving up the 101 highway and it was getting dark, so we decided to stop at this hotel Without a reservation, we were able to get a room plus they were we pet friendly

The front desk clerk was very friendly and helpful, we also met the manager the next morning, who was also very friendly I highly recommend this hotel

Lovely place Clean Loved the kitchen

It was pre stocked with coffee, creamer, teas, and sweeteners along with all the dishes you would need to prepare meals Lovely furnishings In addition, there is a wonderful surrounding trail plus fire pits (The path down to the beach is not affiliated with the inn, is entirely optional, and isn’t beginner friendly but I, an avid hiker, loved that it was a 5 minute walk from the inn property)

pradiata g

Had an excellent stay here and would love to go back again We’ve camped at Sue-Meg State Park multiple times and love the Trinidad area, but this was my first time staying in a hotel here The setting is simple (an unobtrusive small roadside motel) but charmingly and unfussily decorated

Everything was very clean and the staff was wonderful, friendly and accommodating It’s right off of a main road, but there is very little traffic overall and I didn’t find car noises to be an issue This is a great place to stay while visiting the Trinidad and Sue-meg area

Eric Rauert

Awesome hotel with great location We booked for one night after camping in Redwoods and it’s exactly what we needed Room was clean, service was great, and the grounds are quaint and well kept

WiFi works great, they have an ice machine, hiking trails on site, and a communal fire pit for guests The inn is a few minutes from several beaches and downtown Trinidad, while also being right off 101 (and about 20 minutes from the south entrance of Redwoods) Incredible place and would definitely stay again if out this way ever again!

Feedback From Real Customers


This is hands down the best hotel we have ever been to, ever The moment we saw it we were immediately welcomed and felt safe when we saw the pride flag, and felt very comfortable the second we stepped in the door The owner/manager was very friendly and kind, and we could tell that they love their job and what they do! The interior was so incredibly impressive, and was the absolute perfect combination of vintage and modern, so it felt very clean and neat! We loved how extravagant everything felt and all of the touches of old furniture and decorations

Our room was absolutely gorgeous and we felt completely comfortable, which is rare for us in other typical hotels The rooms had a perfect mix of vintage/old time furniture and touches and new appliances/looks We were pleasantly surprised how close it is to the ocean and the restaurants that are nearby, and 10000/10 recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Eureka There is absolutely not a better hotel anywhere nearby than this one, and we are so so happy with our stay!

Mark Kuhar

We stayed here for two days and enjoyed it very much The facility is a remodeled hotel from the 1800s with a great history Rooms are furnished with antique furniture, very well broken in

Rooms are a bit chilly but portable heaters are provided Very clean and well maintained Bath facilities up to grade with plenty of hot water and pressure Do yourself a favor and eat in the bar/restaurant Incredible Order the quail egg appetizer You won’t regret it All of the workers are friendly, helpful and Max the dog is the best Don’t stay in some corporate chain hotel! Stay here you will make a memorable experience you won’t regret

David Masters

What a beautiful hotel the Inn at 2nd & C is Each of the public area rooms is a feast for the eyes, the furniture, the decor, the half completed jigsaws tempting you to do your bitI was overwhelmed by just how stunning this exquisite building was

The owners have done this historic property proudOur room at the top of the building, under the copula was the prettiest room we stayed in on our two week trip, we loved itThe staff as you would expect with all the effort to make the place look and feel amazing, were well, amazing Your hotel will live long in the memory of our USA holiday

Dave Young

What a wonderful find! My wife and I on a recent trip through Eureka stayed downtown We vowed never to stay downtown Eureka again due to not feeling safe Hydrangea is in a beautiful neighborhood surrounded by beautiful homes

We stayed in the Bungalow which is a detached private space with its own courtyard We had our own kitchen, dining, living, and bedroom The bed was super comfy and we had an incredible nights sleep To top it off was the amazing breakfast that we were served When I first saw the amount of food for the two of us I thought there’s no way we’d be able to eat all the food but it was soooo good we ate it all! Thank You for a charming, safe place to stay!

Cozy bed & breakfast, comfortable and quiet accommodations Innkeepers Sharon and Sam are warm and friendly hosts Shops, restaurants and other points of interest are within convenient walking distance

The breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented with freshly-picked flowers and herbs from the garden We would stay here again next time we visit Arcata

Adam Lindahl

Extremely kind and knowledgeable inn keeper, beautiful rooms for a reasonable price, close to downtown, gorgeous garden and landscaping, nice parlour and music room with a homey lived in feel No locks on room doors when leaving can feel a little uncomfortable, bathroom sink leaked a bit and there was a fair bit of water damage in the shower, but everything worked great otherwise We recommend staying at this inn

Jan Flynn

Stayed one night, July 30 2017 I didn’t have high expectations when I booked this inn since there aren’t a great number of choices in Arcata, especially if you’re traveling with a dog, as we were But the Lady Anne turned out to be a complete delight! The innkeepers could not be more welcoming and friendly, and are deeply rooted in the community so can give expert advice on local restaurants and attractions as well as local history

The house itself is utterly charming, full of lovingly collected and displayed antiques and fascinating objects, and the outdoor spaces show the loving touch of a gifted gardener All their beds have Tempur Pedic mattresses with super comfy, natural bedding, and we had a wonderful night’s sleep We ended up meeting friends downtown for breakfast so didn’t partake of the inn’s breakfast, but I did see it being served to other guests and it looked very good I look forward to returning!

Daniel Hammerberg

For $129 you can’t beat it Plenty of room and a jacuzzi in the room Bed was really comfortable and the pillows were great

They will only come refresh your room if you ask but they tell you that when you check in Breakfast is buffet style with eggs, bacon or sausage, bagels, toast, cereal, oatmeal and yogurt There’s a lot of parking but don’t leave anything in your car because of the homeless problem in Eureka

Alexander V Attalla

Had a great stay here, it was the best of 2 other Holiday Inn’s I stayed at in other cities in California Nice staff at front desk, room was clean upon arrival, they had the best and most breakfast options compared to the other one’s The egg’s are ok, but they offered gluten free bagels, organic milk, cereal, yogurt, pancakes, so happy with the options

I used the fitness center which is small but does the job if you’re trying to stay in shape while traveling

Jazmin Miramontes

Lee Clark Most disrespectful Manager I have ever spoken too I tried to make a longer reservation because I got extra time off, they couldn’t do over the phone so I made it online

When I came to check in the gentleman in the evening told me I could ask to stay in the same room without switching That is exactly what I did and asked Lee had come off combative and argumentative towards me for just simply asking questions After asking why I couldn’t stay in the same room after a employee told me I could, he explained to me in the business sense why he simply could not do that I was fine with it and ready to move on Lee then refused my service because “was asking to many questions” Gave me an hour to pack up and leave… I read the terms and conditions and after paying my fee for the hotel it states that the costumer and owner need to come to a agreement in writing on a time to leave Lee told his staff he didn’t want to speak to me anymore Most disrespectful and childish business I have ever came in contact with

Red &Only

Staff so helpful Room reeked of old smoke and clerk fixed us up with a new room no problem! Beds were so comfy Actually soft

Not memory foam help I can’t move soft but soft enough to cushion sore muscles and still support Pool was half indoor outdoor and hot tub lives up to name Bubbles not jets but felt great! Was open until 10 during our stay Kids got to swim under the stars Plenty of towels right at hand and even a bathroom No running back to room to potty or change Breakfast was continuously restocked and dining area kept clean Definitely try the pancake machine I can’t think of anything bad to say about our stay Even the”smoke problem” wasn’t their fault but was easily fixed Wish every hotel or even Best Western could be like this one!

Tim Nolen

I’m giving five stars, because the person who had to deal with me last night was super helpful Within a matter of half an hour she had to deal with me three timesThe rooms are spacious, but a little out of date

One of the plugs on the light in room 110 does not workThe toilet does not seem to be made for the modern AmericanThe water pressure was a little lowThere was a light coming through the window in the bathroom and I had to keep the door closedThe parking lot is very tight and hard to maneuverThe breakfast had plenty of options, though The orange juice didn’t taste very good

Andrew Brennan

Spacious, clean, reasonably priced room The area had some issues, but that’s beyond Best Western’s controlAngelica and the other lady (sorry, didn’t catch your name) seemed quite kind and competent

Edit: stayed here again, definitely try their breakfast, employees were attentive and top notch, food was great, had all the standard stuff plus some extras (actual milk, biscuits and gravy, burrito making station)

Michael Bovarnick

Wow what a find If you are traveling to northern California and are looking for a FABULOUS place to stay then the Trinidad Bay Bed and Breakfast is a must stay Make sure you book early as with only 4 rooms and a great following this B and B books quickly

For those who enjoy staying at B and B’s this is a true gem Beginning with the initial call to make a reservation, Tyler (Innkeeper) could not have been more accommodating Upon arrival, my wife and I immediately knew we had made the right decision in choosing this B and B The Inn is located high on a bluff overlooking the Pacific and is accessible to everything in the small town of Trinidad Our large room was well decorated and the king sized “heated” bed was extremely comfortable especially after a long day of driving Again, for those that enjoy B and B lodging, you know that if the innkeepers are not hospitable then that could easily ruin a holiday On a scale of 1-10 Tyler and his partner Mike are off the charts with their ability to make one feel welcomed The breakfast that Tyler prepares is gourmet and if there are dietary considerations again he will accommodate If you are inclined to have serious conservative discussions about current events / politics then this is the place for you As you can tell from this review, my wife and I feel that after our 2 day stay not only did we enjoy the visit but left feeling like we made new life long friends


What a GEM! From the moment we booked this a month prior to arrival we received a call thanking us for booking and asking if we had any dietary restrictions When we arrived, we were shown to our room by Tyler, it was the trinity alps room I believe (above the Garage) Had panoramic views out of the windows of the bay below

The towels, linens, toiletries were all top notch Bed and furniture were comfortable We felt welcomed and pampered Only sad thing was we were only there one night! Tyler recommended the restaurant across the street, and it was also wonderful all the way around If you are wanting to hike the redwoods, passing through the area or want a place to unwind and enjoy, I would recommend staying here wholeheartedly

Dawn Farral

I almost never write reviews, mostly because I’m too busy or too lazy, pick one ☺️ My husband actually planned this trip and said he had found a bed and breakfast in Trinidad We stayed in the room above the garage (Trinity Alps, I think?) and from start to finish we were greeted with amazing service Tyler was a fantastic host, offering to drive us to dinner, serving amazing meals, giving recommendations for activities in the area

This is one of the top B and Bs we’ve stayed at and the view of the ocean can’t be beat – we enjoyed returning to the room during the day and still feeling like we were on vacation If you want the truth, I’d come back just for the bed – so comfortable! But everything was amazing and thanks to Tyler for being a great host and providing the comforts of home The peach French toast was amazing!

It’s impossible for a hotel that does not offer housekeeping to receive a five-star reviewThe room was comfortable There was a nice hot tub just feet away from my door

Parking was convenient Location was good but only if you have a car Staff was extremely friendly and helpful Ironically, the young man in housekeeping was extremely helpful providing replenished room towelsIt is long past the time we can excuse no daily housekeeping

Robin Banks

I’m giving the motel a 5-star rating, even though I give the area a 2-star rating (homeless population, including drugged up people wandering around)We had a LOVELY stay at the motel itself The three queen beds were perfect for our party of six

I wasn’t super thrilled that the single queen bedroom didn’t have AC, but the hotel staff loaned us a fan that we found useful in blowing cold air into the small room from the main roomThe motel itself was quiet and well-equipped There was an elevator to help get our luggage up to the second level I was really happy about this as we had the kids hauling luggage between the parking lot and the room we were staying in We were pleasantly surprised that the motel exceeded the level of accommodation, amenities, and services than hotels we’ve stayed at over the last few yearsBreakfast was what sealed it for us We were delighted by the food options and the quantity of food! We filled our bellies and appreciated that it was a benefit of choosing to stay at Best Western Plus Bayshore Inn!The staff at this motel are awesome! We felt welcomed from the beginning of our stay through to the end!


Stayed for two nights this past week The front desk was so helpful and friendlyThe rooms were very clean and well prepared for us

We had a triple queen bed roomThe breakfast in the morning was fantastic, well prepared, good variety, and very tasty I complimented the staff for a job well doneOverall I would not hesitate to stay here again

This place was a dream come true for me The desk clerk was very welcoming and informative as the where to eat and enjoy entertainment the rooms were clean and cozy, and best of all there is a limousine ride to and from your destination which is much deserving of a good tip Absolutely wonderful lady driver who was very professional and friendly as well

Must stay for a day at least and go to Lost Coast Brewery or Amigos Burritos both very tasty and great environment

Jen Hurley

Clean rooms with lots of coffee and supplies They don’t skimp here Soft bed, good pillows, lots of places to put things and a good number of towels

The pool and spa area are just amazing and very warm and clean The limo rode was so fun, Selina is friendly and knowledgeable and a good driver The breakfast area is a bit small for how busy the hotel is but they run a tight ship and keep it all well stocked and clean We had just rhe best time here!

Janelle Dressen

From the outside, this hotel looks like any other Best Western However, once you enter through the gate into The Oasis, it is as though you are staying at a mini resort The hot tub is large enough for at least 15 people and there are multiple seating areas, along with a beautiful cascading waterfall

The pool is perfect for children and comes complete with supplies to play water basketball There are many seating areas in the Oasis, along with a pool table, outdoor fire place, fire pit, and tiki torches There are also 2 bathrooms, an outdoor shower, and plenty of freshly laundered towels to dry off with Our family would definitely stay here again!

This is where you want to stay We had a travel issue with a room in another town and called Turtle Rocks hoping they could help us with a 3 night stay Francine was so accommodating and kind

She gave us detailed directions to their place and made us feel so safe and comfortable even before meeting herUpon arrival, we met Roger and he was so helpful From showing us all around the inn to having detailed day to day itinerary ideas available, he made us feel so welcome He offered great restaurant ideas and basically never steered us wrong The proximity to Redwoods state/national parks is so convenientFrancine makes breakfast daily and homemade treats for the afternoon All are worthyThe room was huge and there was a balcony with a sliding screen door that we just left open at night to hear the sea lions barking and the roar of the ocean I have never slept betterLife stress floated away and I feel like a different human leaving than the one that arrivedThe rooms are still the original 1990’s decor, but let that encourage you Embrace it There is such a warmth here I will be back as often as possible Illinois won’t keep me too long from the Turtle Rocks Inn

Karl Hubbard

Really surprised by this place They set a high bar for the room price I was going to stay at the Super 8, but after reading some poor recent reviews from them decided to book here for just $20 more

This is a charming hotel The locked gate parking is a plus The bed was so comfortable I almost missed check out timeThe continental breakfast could use some help, and the pool is not heated and way too cold to go in when we were there in the middle of the summerStaff was excellent I had to wait in line a bit to get helped, but the staff made sure to give each guest their full attention, and not rush to get to the next customer I think this a great quality to have in hotel staff

Jonathan Whitten

What a great find! I couldn’t recommend this place enough! It feels so elegant and historical! The rooms were nice and spacious and clean!My wife and I spent a while just walking the whole place and it was fun! Never enjoyed a hotel lobby so much!Breakfast was okay, nothing great Some eggs and bacon would be a good addition Service was nice though!I would come again!

Jeanne Bertol

Pleasantly surprised to have booked a national historical landmark!! This hotel is 100 years this year 2022 It’s like walking into a museum where every nook has an interesting memento and portraits of famous guests Nothing old about the room we got

Charming and huge! The ladies and young man at the front desk are most helpful about where to eat and places to explore Eureka indeed!!

Overall good the breakfast was very good the pool and hot tub were amazing with hardly any restrictions which was nice One thing that was stupid was there were no garbage bags The elevator was EXTREMELY SLOW! The bathroom was remodeled cheaply But it looks pretty nice

The staff was pretty nice BUT he maids were SO NICE! Very close to restaurants and the stores easy to get stuff The TV was very big and I loved it although there weren’t that many channels The room was very clean as well Well all overall I’d say that this hotel is pretty nice but there are better ones

I booked my room around noon the night I intended to stay I was on a long road trip, and had a car issue I was in areas with very limited cell phone service

I did my best to contact the hotel as well as the Diamond desk to ensure they knew I would not be able to make the reservation Even the wonderful woman at the service desk took detailed notes and attempted to communicate with them I was stalled a few hours away and could not continue pushing into the mountain passes at night I stayed at a different Hampton Inn in a different town that I could safely get to After back and forth with the management, I was told the stay would not be refunded It was a full charge ($370) because I didn’t cancel 24 hours in advance (mind you, this would have been mathematically impossible since I didn’t make the reservation more than 24 hours in advance) I have a very hard time believing I needed to pay the full price of night stay because I prevented another customer from being able to book a room at that hotel over the course of a few hours The Diamond Desk/Hilton Honors team was clear in their communication that if safety and transportation was an issue, they did not anticipate there being an issue with the stay being refunded I received an email from the manager that I could not cancel without paying for the full night due to the property’s small size and rural location I understand that times are tough and every dollar matters, but I feel like as a solo traveler, I was completely taken advantage of in a situation I had very little control over Long story short, as a Diamond member and frequent corporate traveler, Hilton brand hotels will no longer be receiving my business I have had so many great things to say about Hilton and their loyalty program, but I will be exclusively traveling with Marriott from this point forward

The hotel is descent, clean rooms, breakfast standard for this chain I did not give a higher rating due to a request for late checkout only gong to 1:00 PM The Hilton chains have granted late check-outs to to 4:00 PM for Diamond status members

The photo is the view from the third floor looking out to where the coastal hill would be I enjoy the foggy, misty days we have here ion the coast

This is possibly the worst motel experience I have ever had in my life Don’t believe any of the reviews that say it is quaint etc… it is horrible !!No hot water, broken tv, dripping tap, unbelievably noisey I am a 66 year old woman biking down the Pacific coast and the motel was supposed to be a break

I have never been this angry No food delivered to this address, a horrible room and no sleep Do not go to this motel The owner should be ashamed of himself


Bob and his staff are extremely friendly! The rooms are absolutely beautiful and clean It’s literally right across the street from one of the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see! I loved being able to walk outside of my room and have a campfire and grill at any time Not to mention his dog Coconut is darling

We stayed there for a whole month because I just couldn’t bring myself to leave! I absolutely loved vacationing at this incredible hotel My boyfriend and I had a lovely time and will definitely be back again!

Very cozy area The owner Bob was super friendly when we came in His dog Coconut is really awesome and friendly

Was able to have a fire in the pit both nights we were here Even though they don’t serve any breakfast they still made sure to provide a cozy room My only complaint was that the door did not seal all the way so cold air and bugs are able to get through if you don’t put something in front of it Would definitely stay here again if I ever come back up this way
