Clean, small friendly is the best way to capture my experience at this hotel. Yes, some parts are old and can use an upgrade (like the elevator carpet) but for some reason it seems right to give this hotel a pass. The place smell like a Sushi place (yes it does have a Sushi restaurant on the first floor) and... More

Me & my guy recently went on a road trip and our first night was spent at the Hotel Arcata. We didn't have a reservation, but had no trouble getting a room. The lady at the front desk was very nice & we went for a room with a view & it had a separate living room. This seems to... More

I enjoyed my stay here. My room was large, clean and very comfortable. The bathroom had a rooftop bath and brass shower, which worked really well. The staff was helpful, and the hotel well kept. The room was a little noisy, but it's a noisy location, and I still slept very well. Arcata is an odd place, nice to look... More

I love historic hotels, but not for the chintzy antiques or 5-star Victorian haughtiness that seems to come with hotels with character. This hotel has neither. Yes, there are quite a few transients in the plaza and around 11pm there can be unsavory sounds from the bar next door- but the interior of the hotel has an upscale feel, the... More

Every time I find myself in Arcata, I always stay here. The staff is friendly, the hotel is located right in the town square, it's really convenient if you're looking to go out and explore the cute town. The sushi restaurant located in the hotel is really delicious! Love this place!

Set in the charming, historic town of Arcata in Northern California, the hotel is a bit rustic but still a very nice place to stay and right across from the downtown in the center of the city. Be sure to spend some time walking around this cute little town.

Get ready for a noisy and overpriced experience. The building is a historic building and located right on the most beautiful Arcata town square and the Japanese restaurant in the hotel Tomo is delicious and has excellent service and many vegetarian options too and that unfortunately is where the good experience ends. The hotel is historic and on the National... More

Very cute and clean hotel for enjoying the night life in Arcata. I got an interior executive suite well away from the street noise Location is great and the staff was very accommodating Free wifi is always a bonus as well. When in town be sure to visit the restored theater/lounge just down the street

I stayed here on a Thursday night, and I got a taste of the night life in Arcata. The hotel is right on the square, and there are several restaurants and bars immediately outside. Apparently, the hotel is pet-friendly because my first room (#311) smelled like cat piss, so I requested an alternative room. The second room (#316) put me... More

It is located right on the square and surrounded by Bars so street noise is an issue. Also, if you do not like roving bands of hippies, then my advice is avoid Arcata in general. Hotel was build in 1915 and they did manage to maintain a lot of that feel while providing some modern conveniences like flat screen TV.... More
