I've stayed here before, but don't remember the beds being this firm. If you like a firm mattress, it's alright (my husband was ok with the bed), but I found it hard to sleep on. That said, the staff at the front desk were terrific (thanks, Zachary) and our requests were attended to quickly (extra coffees and a replaced light... More

We booked 2 rooms, and our room had a microwave. But, the other room didn't have it. So if you would have need for a microwave, you should ask the front when you are checking in. The room was clean and good size. Their break fast included warm foods such as scramble eggs, hams and sausages and our kids were... More

The place could sure use a face lift. The mattress springs could be felt upon laying down. The breakfast was minimal and there is no elevator to get to the second floor. The only nice thing is that it is to get to from the freeway.

it is a pet friendly motel so you never know...I hope there are special rooms that are rented ONLY for travelers with pets. Anyway, hotel needs some remodeling (at least carpet change and some work with faucets. Breakfast below average. Crowded. It should be priced at $50 level.

The hotel was not horrible but not great. They have little square pillows that are like couch cushions. They are not comfortable! The hotel was easy to find and better the. Some of the other hotels near by.

My wife and I return here when visiting Arcata and the North Coast. Great jumping off point for Trinidad, Arcata, Hwy 299, Eureka, Mad River. Right close to the mouth of the Mad River and not to far( definitely driving distance though) from the beach. The staff is great and very helpful. Rooms are clean. Dog friendly. Price is right....

The location was good, the price was decent, and the hotel sufficed. The room quality was fine, clean and comfortable. Nothing stood out either negative or positive. It provided us with a good nights sleep. Breakfast in the morning was adequate and simple.
