I've stayed at this hotel several times a year for the past 6+ years when I travel north to visit family. It has always been impeccably clean and the staff has always been very attentive. There are little extras in the room such as a small coffee pot, microwave, iron, mini fridge, toiletries and snacks as well as a door-delivered local morning paper. Buffet breakfast is included - there's coffee, teas, hot chocolate, make-your-own belgian waffles, sausage, scrambled eggs, muffins, breads, english muffins & bagels with cream cheese, fruit, yogurt, juice & milk and cereal, etc - something for everyone. The hotel accepts pets as long as you declare them and there's a dog run area in the back behind one of the buildings. There is a pool that is half indoor, half outdoor, vending machines, plenty of accessible ice makers and even a bbq area. The only somewhat negative thing I have to report is that the beds are a little firm for me - personal preference I'm sure. Regarding activities - there is a view of and access to the Eel River right across the street with a walking trail (bank fishing for salmon/steel head when in season). There's also a community center with a neat heather garden to walk through. The local Eel River Brewery w/restaurant (and horseshoe pits) is around the corner (walking distance) and don't forget to visit quaint Ferndale and the Loleta Cheese Factory (great cheese, view the cheese making process, lots of samples) which are both close by (10 min driving). Overall a great place to stay with breakfast included - we won't stay anywhere else in Fortuna!
