Grand Redwood Hospitality


The Benbow Historic Inn is truly one of the great gems of Humboldt County and the entire North Coast region of Northern California. After recently completing a $10 million renovation, it stands as a wonderful example of modern touches blending in perfectly with the authenticity of historic charm that dates back over 90 years.

Today, the Benbow Inn is one of the most memorable Redwood Coast lodging options found between San Francisco and Eureka. It offers over 50 rooms, including options that are ADA compliant, a wonderful new bar, and one of the best dining options in the state. Best of all, it’s just minutes from the iconic Avenue of the Giants, where you will experience some of the largest Redwood old-growth forest on the planet. Come in any season, whether it’s for springtime golf, summer swimming and hiking, fall wine tasting, or a spectacular Christmas Celebration.

The Hotel Benbow opened to the public in July of 1926 and soon became a popular destination resort for motoring tourists traveling up the newly completed Redwood Highway, not to mention such Hollywood legends as Clark Gable, Basil Rathbone, Joan Fontaine, and Spencer Tracy.

Set above the banks of the Eel River, our North Coast Inn’s beautiful location and distinctive Tudor design has earned the resort the reputation as a National Treasure and Northern California getaway intriguing travelers for nine decades.

Benbow Historic Inn is on the National Register of Historic Places and a proud member of Historic Hotels of America.
