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

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
