We went to Arcata for my 50th high school reunion. We stayed at the Best Western Arcata Inn for 3 nights. People were very friendly as we checked in, room was clean, bed freshely made up, fresh cookies in the office(!), breakfast was adequate, breakfast room got a little crowded but we managed. Only thing I wish was that the... More

Don't stay in #127 where they obviously housed pets. Large foot-wide wee stain on the carpet in addition to several smaller but similar stains. Why they allow pets in carpeted rooms boggles the mind. They may do 'extra special cleaning' but c'mon ~ you may be able to mask the smells initially with strong deodorizers but the sub-smells are definitely... More

The rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. The breakfast is good and has lots of options. It is close to a grocery store and restaurants. It is my place to stay in Arcata since my daughter attends HSU.

It is clean, friendly, well-appointed and dog friendly without a hint that dogs are ever on the premises. It is located just north of town and HSU. The staff is helpful and friendly. We stay here several times a year. Highly recommend.

My hubby and I took an eight State tour of the United States.......stayed in a few Hotels on the route, but honestly this was one of the best! Both Best Westerns we stayed at were top notch! Clean rooms, friendly staff and very helpful.........5 stars, just wish our entire American experience was this good!

We were very satisfied with our choice of the Arcata Inn. We were traveling with our dog and they made us feel very welcome. At check-in we were treated to cookies, and a complimentary doggie treat and poop bag wrapped in a cute dog-print bag. Also, a well-kept green space is provided for walking your dog. The rooms were brightly... More

We stayed in a Jacuzzi Hing Suite. It was very clean and spacious. The bed and tub were first rate. The bedding and bed were very comfortable and clean. Highly recommended for your stay in Arcata. The only downside is that the Inn is north of downtown, but it is only 2 exits away.

Stayed here for three nights recently. Room was clean and spacious. Comfortable bed. Grounds are nicely landscaped. Conveniently located across the street from a supermarket, good Mexican food at Valley Azteca restaurant (mole enchiladas- yummy) and a chance to eat great falafel at Kebab Cafe. You are just minutes away from central Arcata, Breakfast is just okay. "High speed" internet... More

This hotel shows its age in many ways, so don’t expect modernity. Despite this situation, the hotel is well located (just a minute or two off of Highway 101). The hotel provides free wi fi and a basic (but not especially appealing) breakfast in a room that was far too small for the number of people eating. The staff was... More

I always stay at the Best Western Inn when I am in Arcata, CA. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the exterior is clean as well. The breakfast that they provide is good and varied. The staff is helpful and caring. I also appreciate that I can stay there with my pet when I bring her. The value for... More
