This hotel was built entirely with the wood from a single redwood tree. It was probably built in the fifties (or maybe earlier) and really fits the typical "Motel" layout of that time. If you like quirky, quaint places this is kind of fun for one night - but don't expect "modern" type lodgings. The rooms are small, the bathrooms...

Showed up late and the room was very clean but cold. Heater took over 5 hours to get the room to a barely comfortable temperature. I set it to 85 just to get it thawed out and it NEVER made it past 70. I actually had to sleep on the floor next to the heater just to stay warm. I...

I’m the one you spoke with the morning you checked out. You made no effort to contact us after you had checked in. That’s what we are here for, extra blanket, check the heater out or any other issue. Not when you are checking out and asking for a refund. After listening to your complaint that morning I went right...

Older hotel with a great backstory! Clean, large room with easy parking and good wifi. Best value on our trip so far. Close to numerous restaurants and across from the picturesque working harbour. We didn't have a reservation so the room was cold when we got there, but the climate control worked great.

Our room was very clean and the service was excellent! The employees were helpful and friendly. The motel is right across from harbor, centrally located with several fine restaurants within walking distance. You are able to park right next to the front door of your room if you're on the first floor. I'm looking forward to my next visit to...

Rooms are huge - furnishings were first rate and comfortable. The under cover parking was unique and kinda nice to have since it does occasionally drizzle some around there. Great location for access to Jedidiah Smith's Howland Hill Road and not so far to Prairie Creek Redwoods, which was my reason for being there. I would stay there again in...

This motel is a great place to see the results of what 1redtree can make with a retro feel from the 70's. The beds are not top of the line and the towels are a little thin but the price made up for any short coming. Make sure to spend a little time at the lobby and get the history...

The rooms are nothing more than average, perhaps with more vintage charm. The building however is something else. Built by one single redwood tree it was truly one of the coolest places I have ever seen.

Loved the thought of a retro motel in pristine condition. Sorry that the tree was sacrificed to make this whole hotel, but think how many happy people have stayed here over 60 years. Beautifully maintained. Carport right outside room. Several rooms appear to be wheel chair accessible. HUGE rooms with 2 comfy beds, TV, chairs, desk, dresser and floor space....

57,000 board feet of lumber from one tree built this place that has been lovingly kept up by the son of the second owner. I would stay again in a heartbeat. The curly redwood of which the hotel is made is everywhere inside and out and is beautiful - thankfully he has resisted the advice to reduce his commitment by...

We were traveling down the Pacific Hwy for over a week. This location was good, near the seals and good restaurants. However I have big complaint concerning the mattress. Both my husband and I had a SLEEPLESS night as the mattress was SO hard and had backaches for a few days.

We try to please everyone, finding that perfect mattress for everyone is a bit of a task at all lodging properties. Some like firm, some like soft, some like pillow top, so we go in the middle. Sorry for your sleepless night.
