We decided to stay at the Scotia Inn instead going further to Fortuna. The inn has so much old world charm and elegance. The room was large, very clean and the antiques throughout the hotel and in the rooms add to the charm. The bed was very comfortable. Bathroom had a deep clawfoot tub for soaking! The Mexican restaurant that...

We come up the coast to see the redwoods and experience the beautiful beaches every other year or so. We always stay at the Scotia Inn for a night. Not the Ritz Carlton, a W hotel or a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property. Just a historic hotel with a comfortable bed and good food. So much better than...

In the heart of Scotia, once upon a time a thriving lumber / logging hub, the Inn has a nice pub and a mexican restaurant. Wooden floors throughout and the lobby are magnificent. However, the old carpet and the furniture in the room are outdated. The bathroom is average. Suprisingly the town is still noisy at night with too much...

We stayed here after a day of driving and leisurely exploring the Avenue of the Giants. We had considered staying in Eureka, but I'm glad we stayed here instead. Based on the reviews, I expected shabby carpet and chipped plaster. Obviously, the place is charming and has lovely old furniture. If you prefer hotels with a sense of newness, this...

We stayed at the Scotia for one night, as a stopover on our way south. As an old inn you'd expect a few problems. It has the potential to be absolutely stunning, but the inn is a little dilapidated. Our room was clean and the bed huge and very comfortable but the bedding had a strange odour. We checked in...

The woodwork in the lobby is beautiful. I can just imagine what it must have been like in it's prime but those days left maybe when the lumber mill closed. Our room was large but over priced. Checked in and opened the mini refrigerator and found a dirty (with food) plate and silverware. The bathroom floor was dirty with black...

The place is lovely, with a large lobby and places to sit outside, but the room was small, the bureau unusable, the bed was really uncomfortable. There was traffic noise outside most of the night, and it didn't seem like there would be quieter rooms, since the back faced on 101. We had to keep the window closed. Thank goodness...

We spent one night in the petite room. It was just right for two for one night. We enjoyed the architecture and learning the history of the Inn and town. As with any old hotel there are some quirks with plumbing and number of electrical outlets but that's to be expected and lends to the charm of a historic hotel....

I stayed here when I was making a trip to see the Redwoods along the Avenue of the Giants. Outside of much of what was along the Avenue was either booked or well over priced (being summer and prime tourist season), I chose this place because it was close by and I was able to find a fairly cheap room....

This inn is historic as is the town. Walking in, one immediately feels the years of the past envelope you. The woodwork is polished and the decor feeds the imagination. The room we were in was small but comfortable. The staff was friendly and considerate of our needs. Breakfast wasn't a huge spread, but the breads and fruit were fresh...
