Very pleasant office staff, they made rooms available for us to check early. Rooms were clean. Beds weren't the best. Parking is good, pool is clean. Located among other motels in the area, this one was the least expensive. Not bad for the price.

The rooms looked like they were remodeled, and it was cute. The room was clean. The beds were small but comfy, pillow not so much. We didn't have problem with noise but you could smell illegal substances being smoked, which we didn't appreciate since we had our children. We stayed one night and moved on. Very very small rooms and... More

Two years in a row while in Arcata we had horrible service and sleepless nights. I was assured that this year would be different than last. I took the bait and was pulled in. I asked in advance for an upstairs quiet room. I was given a room upstairs but before dark three police cars were investgating our next door... More

We got there rather late, but the clerk had saved us a nice quiet room as requested.Motel 6 was easy to find, and made two major highways very easy to get on and off of- but far enough away not to hear the traffic from your room. The grounds were nice, and several people were walking their dogs. When we... More

It was nice that the rooms had been remodeled, but our nonsmoking room absolutely reeked of cigarette smoke. It was so bad that I immediately got a sore throat from the smoke residue. When I told the front desk they said that the rooms smell because people smoke outside the rooms with the doors open. Well how about having a... More

First off our room wasn't ready upon arrival. We did make reservations on Wednesday. We had to ask for towels. The carpet floor was filthy ... what more needs... More

The front desk staff were friendly and tried to be helpful but that was the only good thing about this location. It was so bad here we ended up checking out and finding another place to stay. I know it's motel 6 and I'm not expecting much when I stay here but this place is terrible, even for a motel... More

I could hear people talking outside the room just as though the door was open, people were walking around outside early in the morning and the interment didn't work (they did refund our Internet charge) the staff was very friendly, the grounds were well kept. Would have liked a bathtub.

I like the Motel 6 chain but this one is not good. Good location but the room smelled so bad we had to open windows to air it out. I think the carpet was the problem, old damp looking and STINKY. I took a photo of the bathroom sink to send to the corporate headquarters, old and impossible to get... More

Needed a last minute hotel room in Arcata and this was my option since the nice Best Western was booked. I have stayed over the years at other Motel 6 hotels which were fine so no concerns. Front desk staff was nice, polite, efficient. And then everything went downhill from there. Property is clearly older and looks rough around edges.... More
