Starting off the room smelled of mildew, I ran the a/c with little effect but it did lessen through the day. I noticed that the room had sugar ants but did not realize where they were coming from till around my check out. Housekeeping decided to leave cookies behind the night stand.

Every room in the county was full for the 4th of July weekend. I had to find housing for family and the Super 8 had the time slots I needed, at a good price. The hotel is an older unit, even for the area, room seemed okay, no complaints from the family members that stayed there. Foyer needs a lot... More

We stayed only one night out of the four nights that we booked at this hotel. The a/c was broken. We came in for the second night and pot smoke filled the entire hallway. We checked out immediately and found a different hotel.

Was pleasantly surprised as I read ratings of 3.5 for this motel. I got up each morning and found breakfast ready a half hour earlier than posted. The front desk was prompt in checking me in and out. We had a slight hiccup each day as there were four of us but only three towels were left. The front desk... More

I visited Arcata on a business trip and stay at Super 8. The staff was friendly and the rooms were fresh and clean and there was a nice breakfast in the morning. Would stay again if I come back to Arcata.

Room was fine. Front desk staff was friendly enough. After checking into our room I noticed the horrible smell from the comforter. Obviously housekeeping does NOT clean these between guests. GROSS!!! It had a very strong urine odor! I promptly threw it in the hallway and informed the front desk of this. He was very nice about it and quickly... More

They have made a serious effort to dress up the Super 8, and they have added some nice touches to the breakfast bar. Staff all helpful. Internet was very slow logging on. Maid service was very good. Amenities very basic - but hey - that's why I stayed there. Needed a place to crash at 11 each night and out... More

Hotel looked like it was going under some updates. Our hallway smelled of pot even though it was a nonsmoking room. Area is rundown and homes a lot of homeless. Didn't feel 100% safe walking to car by myself. Wifi signal was zero and the breakfast was VERY minimal.
