We originally had plans to stay here. I had called earlier in the day to see if they had any rooms available that evening, and they said they did. When we arrived later that afternoon we noticed a lot of homeless people in the area. This hotel is sandwiched between 4th and 5th Streets, aka Highway 101, so there is LOTS of traffic. There happened to be a couple heading back to their room, so we talked with them before checking in. They said they heard the homeless people walking past their room during night, and with the noise from the traffic they didn't get much sleep. We decided not to stay there, so I can't speak to what the rooms are like. less

Thank you for your comments. As you stated, you did not stay here, but...I wish we had the opportunity to have you as our guest. Some of your comments could have been easily addressed to help ensure that your visit was a memorable experience.
We are located in downtown Eureka and five blocks from Historic Old Town, Boardwalk, and Marina. Our property does take up an entire city block with six buildings to choose your room from, with many not having any traffic noise at all. Our property is enclosed with only 2 entrances/exits, so we are very strict on non-guests coming onto the property.
Most of our rooms have been recently renovated, with the few remaining ones to be done starting this November. Our property also just completed our new "Oasis" spa area, complete with a free-form hot spa with waterfalls, ticki torches, outdoor fireplaces, plush lounging furniture and much more (see pictures). Also, we have the area's only complimentary dinner stretch-limousine that will drive you and pick you up to one of the fine restaurants that Eureka has to offer.
Please contact me directly the next time you are in our area and I will make sure that if you stay with us, it will be a pleasurable night.
