Quaint Inn in the Redwoods
Reviewed 2 days ago

Booked my trip last minute as part of a longer roadtrip in California and was positively surprised!

The staff was really friendly and attentive (restocking the wood in the fireplace proactively for example) and generally there was a great ambience in the common areas. The lobby has a great fireplace with lots of activities to enjoy (good music, puzzles, chess etc) and also offers complimentary afternoon tea and scones, which was a really nice touch.

Would recommend this for any solo travelers and couples alike and will definitely stay with them again next time i pass through the Redwoods.

The property is great despite being so close to the highway. I had a room that faced the back of the Inn which was definitely the nicer side.

However, the pool/jacuzzi (and laundromat if you need it) are not ‘really’ part of the property. You have to walk 5 minutes to the camping place (Koa Resort) to use them. All in all not a huge deal when I visited but would impact my choice if it were warmer outside.

Also note that most rooms don’t have TVs. I wanted to disconnect so it was great for me but may just be worth keeping in mind.

Excellent weekend

The hotel is well maintained, staff is great. The hotel is kept in the original concept of an English country Inn. The furnishings throughout are from the 19th century. The lobby is spacious with card tables set up for chess, puzzles and numerous games are available. And oh...the restaurant id 4 starr

Best Experience Ever

It started at check-in with Melinda. We Jokingly mentioned we would Love A table to play cards in our room. Melinda had one sent to our room, WITH COMFY CHAIRS.
Then two weeks after leaving I realized I left my gloves and hat in a drawer. Ryan and Brent went above and beyond measures to make sure they were found and immediately mailed them back to me,, Best customer service EVER,.... Thank you!!!

Quaint resort among the Redwoods
Reviewed 1 week ago

Old fashioned, quaint resort just south of the Avenue of Giants (Humbolt Giant redwood groves). Not a 4star type of property but comfortable and conveniently located for a visit to the area. Stayed in the Original building(?) that had no TV. Was refreshing to not HAVE to watch TV!

Weekend getaway
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We live in Windsor, Ca. It’s only a 2 hour and 5 min drive to Benbow Inn. They upgraded our room when we asked for a fireplace. We checked in and then had a delicious dinner and yummy drinks. Order the Ramos Fizz and Bloody Mary, both fantastic! From the cooks, the servers, the front desk to the managers, all 1st class people, professional, courteous and kind. Enjoyed a great book, breakfast and a walk on the bridge the next morning. So relaxing!! Going back soon.
