Needs updating badly. Stains on the rugs stains on the bed sheets. Rugs need replacing. I will not be going back to this one in Arcada Ca. The staff was good but it was just run down to much. I would rather pay a little more than go there again

This was the closest place to mad river hospital. My father was paying away and we needed to sleep and shower between shifts. I felt the staff was the best part of our stay. There are a lot of people hanging out outside and in the halls. I actually had to leave the hospital to go stay with my mother... More

Stayed for overnight after late arrival in Arcata to visit family member in Hospital. Convenient close location to Mad River Commnity hospital. Room itself was clean, new carpet, paint, and tub surround, but quality of work questionable. I found holes in wall in bath, w/ new paint around indicating did not bother/notice to fill holes prior to painting. Stone tub... More

They charge you anyway even if you give them plenty of time(in this case ten days before the date of service). They were not reasonable since they will book the room anyway for much more then I reserved it for. It was a very nasty experience.

We were told by Ray, the clerk on duty that our rate was $53, he had a sign a paper that as he engaged us in conversation. When we checked out we found he had charged us $10 more. When we tried to get the situation corrected, the morning clerk told us he didn't have the authority. We asked to... More

It didn't look like they had cleaned the bathroom at all. We had no toilet paper, my cousin's room had no shower curtain. The shower looked dirty & had mold in the corners. Someone's dog barked all hours. The continental breakfast was gross. It was cheap and conveniently located, and the staff was friendly. That's all I can give it.

The best thing about the hotel was the staff who were friendly and helpful. For the price we expected better. The carpets were FILTHY. The hotel is 'pet friendly' which could explain the hideous carpet staining. The tiles in shower were held in place by moldering, formerly white duct tape (we skipped bathing). The mattresses were of the inner spring... More

We have been on a road trip for the past few weeks with our family and this hotel by far was the 2nd least favourite. The staff were friendly and helpful but this hotel was very tired, very dirty, smelt bad, and the breakfast was average with very suspicious people staying at the hotel & the police needing to be...

The room was basically clean, but had a strong smell to it, even after hours of airing. The furniture is very tired and dated, needs urgent upgrading. The breakfast is acceptable but lacks fresh fruits. Overall not as expected from a Quality Inn, therefore a comparably poor experience.
