This was the first stop for my husband and I on our 1637 mile journey. The first thing upon check in the two young men offered microfiber towels for us. These are something they give to their motorcycle guests (to wipe off dew I'm sure) however, we went during a WARM season and did not have the dew. VERY VERY... More

We were disappointed at the lack of gluten free breakfast offerings and the fact that it is pay-per-movie now instead of getting the movie channels free, but we liked the large double spaces for the dog to walk around in and the beds were comfortable. The room was clean and the hotel staff members were friendly.

Our room was spotless, the bed comfortable, fluffy pillows, quiet. Great location, close to the restaurants, university, beach, and hiking trails. This is our go to place to stay on the coast when rooms are available. Make your reservations ahead of time so you can stay there too.

It is hard to find a really bad BW so we began our OR coastal jaunt in Arcata, close to Trinidad, but more affordable (right smack in the middle of Labor Day weekend). The room was very large and the king bed firm and comfy. We come to this area to dine at Larrupin Cafe in Trinidad. The front desk... More

The office staff was very helpful, the bed was good, the traffic noise from 101 was fairly loud. The breakfast was standard. The best part was the points gained toward a free stay somewhere else on our travels

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!
