We arrived and 1 out of our 2 rooms was no clean so we had to wait. But the staff was very nice about it and gave me bonus points for the delay. The stay was pleasant. The breakfast was nice. There were family restaurants walking distance.

Newly remodeled rooms were very nice. It was a very good value for the hotel. The location was outside of the downtown area, so it was not too crowded. There were stores and restaurants within walking distance. It was very close to HSU, which we were visiting. The location was very convenient. I recommend this hotel and would stay there... More

Better than I expected. The room was nice, roomy, and clean. The bed was very comfortable. I was skeptical, based on the outside appearance of the hotel, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was a good value for the money. Didn't have time for breakfast, but it looked good. Room had fridge, coffee pot, etc.

Nice room, good amenities, easy access plug ins for lap top and phone charging, very clean, helpful and polite staff, breakfast average, a little highway noise but not bad, great value for the price. Good choice for a woman traveling alone.

This is the third time we've stayed here - earlier two times with our dog. Very accomodating to pets and their owners. Breakfast is good, but typical for this range motel - bagels, fruit, pancakes made to order, juices, yogurt, cereal - variety of coffees and teas available at all times. Friendly staff, clean rooms, CSAA discount, reward points, what's... More

Two months after our one-night stay at the Best Western Arcata Inn, I have trouble remembering what the hotel looked like. That's not necessarily a bad thing. We arrived late on a Tuesday night during Thanksgiving week, and left early the following morning. What we wanted and needed was a clean, comfortable, hassle-free place to sleep - and that's what...

For the area, this is the place to stay. Even though its off the highway, the location if good for taking kids to school up here. The staff was curteous and the fresh baked cookies were good. I almost thought I was a a doubletree hotel.

Very nice hotel, friendly staff, clean rooms and decent breakfast. Great location for someone traveling up the coast with many places to eat and shop right across the street. Rained the whole time otherwise we would have used the pool that looked very nice.

I have been coming to the area every month since 1998 for work. When I made my first trip up, I didn't know McKinleylille from Fortuna. The staff could not have been more helpful to me, and so now I have enjoyed more than 700 nights here. The property is always clean and well-maintained . The rooms are comfy and... More
