Very clean rooms. They actually wash their sheets, blankets, and towels. The towels were thick and big not dingy like other motels. The rooms could use a little updating but overall very comfortable. If we could have stayed in that room our entire vacation I would have loved it.

We pulled off of highway 101 into Garberville by mistake and since the sun was setting we decided to look for a motel. The Sherwood Forest Motel looked clean and neat from the outside, so we gave it a try. The lobby and rooms smelled clean, which is a plus and probably a challenge in a dusty town like Garberville....

I made a huge mistake and that is what lead us to this motel. I was not sure were we would be in the redwoods at night so did not make a reservation anywere. It did not acure to me that it was memorial weekend. So all the good hotels were booked and this was the only one that had...

Yes, the rooms are rustic, but my partner & I were happy about the quality of the mattress. We slept really really well! In a great location in Garberville, very clean & quiet. There were no problems except the shower head could've been better, probably original to motel.

I can not say anything but good about the Sherwood Forest Motel in Garberville, California. My family takes a trip to the California Redwoods twice a year, every time there is no other place we stay. The people are friendly, the rooms are clean (the beds are clean and fresh), and it is in the middle of any place you...

We stopped in Garberville because it is just at the south end of the Avenue of the Giants. Room cost was $66 which included tax (December 23). Other rooms where in the $55 - $71 range with Best Western at $110. This place was the prettiest from the outside. The room was so-so....bed was fine, slept great. But overall the...

This place is disgusting. Me and my boyfriend stayed here on our cross country trip. The room probably felt dirtier than it was because of the lack of any updating since the place was built. The bed was the most uncomfortable thing I have ever slept on which they may have found in a dumpster before the place was built....

Too old, musty, moldy, and creepy. Ants, noise, spiders, filthy old carpet. Barely friendly staff. Will stay elsewhere next time.

I've stayed in third world country accommodations which were better than this hotel. I should've known upon check in when the clerk stated "this is so busy, I didn't sign up for this" having to help two more of us after checking the person in front of us. Whoo hoo, that IS overwhelming. When we got to our room, the...

I have not stayed here yet but I just had the nicest experience booking. At the last minute I decided to go to Garberville for a big event. Most places where either booked or had a 2 night min stay. The person booking bent the rule and gave me a room for one night when I'm sure the room could...

A small family run business, Sherwood Forest has it all: Free WIFI, Cable TV, Pool & Hottub. There's a great BBQ area in back & the property is littered with fruit trees. There are several restaurants within walking distance of the motel, as well as a movie theater, grocery store, and coffee shop. Two miles to the South lies the famous Benbow Lake and a Golf Course for your relaxation needs. There are also several good local wineries in the area!
