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.

The price is right, but as the old saying goes "You get what you pay for". The check in clerk was beyond helpful even though she was swamped with people trying to check in. We upgraded to a room with a small refrigerator and she took the time to make sure we were taken care of. With that said the... More

Given the price I paid, I have no complaints. This is basic no frills hotel located a few miles north of the city center. The hotel is starting to show its age, however the room was clean. It had all of the necessities for a quick one night stay. The continental breakfast is very basic, and the small breakfast room... More

This property is tired. I made the reservation a couple of days out and it was made on the reviews of people who had stayed at the hotel. First the good: the desk clerk was very friendly, the room was clean (or, at least appeared to be), and the breakfast buffet was not bad. Other than that, the carpet was... More

This was a last minute trip to the coast and as this was the ONLY place left with openings for pets we stayed here. The staff is beyond helpful and considerate. That is the big plus. Our room was old and in need of repair but otherwise clean as can be and our bed was a brand new pillow top.... More

We have stayed there on many occasions and have found the hotel maintenance to have been continually deferred. The carpet on the second floor is very dirty. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The bathroom lacked a stopper in the sink making it necessary to let the water run while shaving. The exhaust fan moved very little air. And... More

Staff at the hotel were very nice and very helpful and friendly. The hotel was old, stains on carpet and needed refurbished. The bed was comfortable. There were some questionable, possibly homeless people in the area, which as a little scary but there were no problems at the hotel.
