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

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
