Now most motel 6's aren't the best but in a crunch get the job done. This one must have been recently updated and had a very clean modern vibe to it. It had a bit of a dorm room feel to it but everything worked and was clean. And for the price I wasn't complaining. The only problem I had... More

Up to now, my wife and I have been staying at family-run motels with cute names like Leisure Inn that include a microwave, fridge, coffee machine and FREE wifi for around 60-70 USD per night. Sure they were old fashioned and you had to use a key to unlock the door, but I prefer them over Motel 6 that charges... More

I regularly travel US 101 the Newport, Oregon/ Los Angeles,California route, and finding a good place to stay at a reasonable rate is always important to me. Motel 6 Arcata fits the bill in everyway. Not fancy, but let's see why I gave this site five stars... Check in is fast and friendly. Lupita, the front office worker was helpful,... More

Took a college scouting trip to Humboldt State University and found most of the local hotels to be somewhat expensive, so I took a chance and booked a room at the Motel 6. When we arrived we noticed the place looked very clean, and kept up to date. Newly painted and remodeled. Our room was not ready when we arrived,... More

Lots of mom and pop motels in Arcata and Eureka are cheaper. FYI. This location lies in a pocket of various chain motels. Was driving solo so any place with a bed and shower was OK. Got there around 1:00pm without room reservations. Got room but had to wait till 3:00 pm for it to be clean. Cost about $70... More

at check-in, the manager dakota was very helpful and gave me a room based on my requests to be on second floor away from highway noise. the room was very clean, a newly-remodeled motel 6 with wood floors and chairs rather than the usual filthy rugs and plastic chairs. it had a table and chair, desk and chair, double bed...

Touring by motorcycle, we often stay at M6, and the facility in Arcata, CA did not disappoint. The staff was welcoming and helpful. In fact, after being in the room a few minutes we got a call from the front desk asking us if the room was satisfactory. Rooms here have recently been remodeled with a new color scheme, Samsung...

Great value, clean rooms, recently refinished. It's Motel 6-I really haven't stayed at a bad one. This is near Humboldt State-I wasn't looking for anything other than a place to sleep. If you want something more, this isn't for you-but it was great for me.

Came into town on Thanksgiving weekend with no reservations so stopped there first. The room is soooo small. Wish I had taken a picture. No night stands. The desk was attached to the wall and the TV Stand was also the "closet". For some reason they put us in the handicap room so the shower was equipped for a wheelchair.... More
