Great find on our road trip. Our room was excellent and provided us with a restful night's sleep. Check in was easy and the staff was very friendly. We enjoyed our stay as well as the casino and breakfast in the restaurant. Be sure to ask for first time guest perks.

What a lucky find for us! A beautiful room and great meals in the restaurant. We appreciated the covered parking underground on a very rainy night. The front desk staff and housekeeping staff were very helpful and accommodating. When we first arrived there was a problem with our room. The adjoining guests were using some of that wacky tobacky that's...

We enjoyed our stay at Bear River. Room was nice and clean and the service was very accommodating. The casino offered some first time guest perks that we took advantage of. We will stay here again! The restaurant at the casino was a whole different experience. Very pricey, not very friendly, very dark and menu had a lot of what...

After two (ahem) less expensive hotels the previous nights Bear River was a world better for only a few dollars more. Bear River would have been really nice under any circumstances. Close to Redwoods, Pacific Ocean, lots of other stuff in the area. Very glad we stayed here rather than another "bargain" in Eureka. Nice enough casino (we came out...

I was somewhat skeptical of staying in a casino hotel, but our friends said they have been there a number of times and recommended the hotel. We were not disappointed. A lot of nice features; granite counter in bathroom, micro and frig, spacious room and underground parking.

Very clean rooms, no view, but a great value. We had dinner at the casino and on Thursday nights they offer Pasta night, for one set price. It was amazing, best dish for pasta I have ever had, we a choice of many sauces.

Could not get refund for one couple who became ill 5 days ahead of arrival. We had 54 people on the trip and paid in advance. Looks like Bear River could have refunded $116 out of $3,357 pd. to this couple. The other hotels like Holiday Inn Express and Spring Hill Suites gladly provided a refund.
