Super 8 Eureka

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

There's a Dutch Bros coffee stand across the street, and all the neat shops and restaurants are about 10-15 minutes walking. The room was clean, but the blankets aren't very soft. The worst part of my experience was the pillows- they only had very thick pillows, which made my neck sore and greatly reduced the quality of sleep. If you don't like thick pillows, be sure to bring your own.

Very old and rundown, traffic noise, the "pool" is a bad joke and the breakfast is very basic.

The motel was very close to the places we came to visit, so that was a plus. However, the carpet appeared to have poorly cleaned vomit, and the window lock was broken making it ver difficult to open. We forgot to notify them in advance that we had my husband's service dog with us so they charged us an extra $60 after we returned home.

In a "rougher" area of town. Room was clean, bed was not comfortable. It's ok for simply an overnight stay, I wouldn't recommend an extended stay

The front desk was friendly, but the room had a musty smell to it. Upon first entering it smelled of deodorant masking something unpleasant. Plus the room was warm and no air conditioner. The carpet needed to be replaced or a SERIOUS steam cleaning. I will say that the lady at the front desk was nice and offered to switch rooms. Being the 2nd room, I thought it was norm. She did lent me a fan which cleared the heat and some of the smell to a tolerable environment. For a couple of days when you need only a bed it was okay for the price. Cheapest in town that night and has a lot of people pass thru.It is what it is.

To be fair, the things I'm about to complain about are probably true of many of the motels in this area, so in the end, you'll have to decide for yourself. I, for one, will never stay here (or anywhere near here) again. The fact that Super 8 is now owned by Wyndham, the unusually high review rating, and the nice photos attached to the listing led me to believe that this would be a nice place to stop, breaking up my long drive from Oregon to San Jose. Within a half-hour I was on-line looking to see if there were any last minute deals on the Best Western at the outskirts of town (there weren't, so I stayed). Eureka is kinda of a dump to start with, and 'motel row' is in an especially dumpy area - it's a walkable distance to the fairly nice couple of blocks that make up the historic downtown, but I wouldn't walk these streets after dark. The motel has no air conditioning, which is probably fine at times, but even though I arrived on an unusually cool (for summer) day, the room itself was in the upper 80's and even with the windows and doors open and ceiling fan running, it took hours to get the room to a comfortable temperature. Speaking of windows, they are unusually thin, single-pane relics. If you're lucky, you get a view of the front parking lot. If you're unlucky (like us) you get a view of the backs of an ugly guns and ammo shop and restaurant, an alley, and a gas station. In Eureka, highway 101 splits into two broad boulevards with one block between them (where this and other motels are). So of course you hear constant traffic if you open your windows, but I really had no choice. Despite how bad the windows are, they did a fair job of cutting down the noise except for when the obnoxious cars, big rigs, and motorcycles drove by. There is a small pool that is, surprisingly, indoors on the second floor, but the color didn't look quite right, and we didn't want to use it as there was some 20-something guy in there singing at the top of his lungs for 2+ hours. It's a good thing we didn't have much of an appetite as we had a late lunch on the road. The only restaurant within a half-block (about as far as we were willing to venture in the sketchy place) was an Italian place on the other side of the back alley that closed the minute we arrived at the door (at 8:00pm) so we went back to the room and ate peanuts and bananas and whatever was in our snack bag. I didn't want to drive anywhere as I felt I had the only safe parking place in the motel (the well lit spot right outside the office door). This may all sound like I'm a snob, or overly-security conscious, and maybe that's true, but this is the only place I've stayed at in 20 years that I felt so negatively about. Now, to be fair, any motel in the immediate area is going to be the same (except for the air conditioning?), and you could tell that SOME effort had been put into making the room more modern. It had nicer carpet and wallpaper. The furniture was nice at one time, but a bit worn. The room was very clean except for some water damage to the wall paper in the bathroom. The wi-fi and flat-screen TV worked very well. We could even watch Amazon videos on our iPads which is sometimes tricky to do in a motel. At almost a hundred bucks, I was really disappointed. It seemed like a $50 motel to me. I doubt I will ever stop in Eureka again, but if I do, I'll pay the extra and stay at the Best Western by the mall on the outskirts of town. Happy traveling!

Horrible. So dirty.... I will not recommend this place. The house keepers are so gossip. You don't have privacy because they are watching on you. Also, they take their whole family to work. it sucks...

Rooms are clean and temperature is appropriate. Staffs are nice. Location is perfect, right on US-101.

Clean hotel and friendly staff. Carpet rugs. Firm beds and older blankets. Good place for one night. The neighborhood looked a bit rough but we walked down the street for pizza and had no issues with anyone.

This was one of the best motel I have visited. The room was clean, homey decorated and equipped with all the amenities, including mini-refrigerator, microwave oven, hair dryer, warm water swimming poor, Jacuzzi, and even with Sauna. The staff was so hospitable that I was showing three room to choice one.

the staff here is extra friendly and makes you feel at homerooms are clean and it does have cable and nice breeze from outside

Exceptionally mediocre. Staff was friendly and helpful. Parking was nearly full and couldn't park near the room but it was July 4th weekend. Rates were higher than normal but reasonable compared to other hotels in the area at the time. Walking distance to a couple restaurants and the Carson mansion, which was amazing! Breakfast was crowded and okay for a hotel in this price range.

The rug was old and a bit dirty. Otherwise, great place to stay for a night.

We needed a place for our early twenties aged son to stay for the weekend while he was away from us, and Super 8 in Eureka was a clean, safe and accommodating.

We were traveling from Oregon to San Francisco, so chose Eureka as a stop-off on our way. The motel was clean, but no real special amenities. The continental breakfast had a waffle iron, cereal, and cinnamon rolls, which was more than adequate, and increased the value of the stay. The bathroom was small, but for the price, the hotel was a good bargain.

Terrible. There was a mistake made with our reservation, so they gave us one bed. We had 3 adults and a baby traveling with us so no way we could fit. When I went back to fix it, they charged us $20 more dollars to get a second bed. Room smelled. Sheet had hair all over them. Beds uncomfortable. We had someone come into our room and use the bathroom while we were gone. The toilet over flowed, and we had footprints that did not match any of our shoes, and hair all over the toilet. When we asked about this, the manager was rude. The maid refused to come in and clean up the water, and they gave my mother a mop and told her to do it herself. NOT OKAY! We recieved dirty looks from the staff the entire trip. This was the WORST hotel experience I have ever had. I will never stay here again.

The rooms were fine for a one night stay. They had everything we needed. The motel is just old, and normal wear and tear is taking its toll. The kids enjoyed the pool. The continental breakfast only had donuts and cereal (not including beverages).

Rocation was good to go to red wood national park. However,breakfast was awful.

Average Hotel. clean, good hot tub, good location. good price.

Was in town to visit a sick relative and was only looking for a clean room, comfortable bed and a clean, hot shower. I got those and also experienced thin walls and a noisy, almost transient, neighborhood. The room had a newly remodeled bathroom, but the main room needed an upgrade. A gas wall heater might present a safety issue (carbon monoxide) and Eureka weather would never demand air conditioning on even the hottest day, hence only a ceiling fan. All in all I wasn't expecting much and that was what I got.
