If you are in the area for business or to meet up up family etc. and need to be in Arcata, don't read ahead. This is a nice Holiday Inn with the usual amenities and you will (most probably) have a great stay. But if you are here to see the Redwood national and state parks, this is an awful... More

Nice stay seeing the Redwoods. quiet rooms, nice beds, good breakfrast, and close to the beach and the 101. My daughter loved the rocking horse in the lobby area. I enjoyed our stay and if I'm over back in the area, I will stay here.

The room was spacious and clean, as was the bathroom. A good place to stop if travelling on Highway 101 - certainly a much better option than staying in Eureka. Breakfast is adequate, staff friendly and efficient. There is a laundry room, which was useful.

He works alone and as soon as any item runs low he brings them. This was my first time staying at holiday inn and it was much better than expected for a... More

We stayed one night travelling down the coast and were impressed with the large clean rooms (had 2 with connecting doors for kids), comfy beds, good breakfast. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, would highly recommend.

I travel to the Arcata - McKinleyville area often and this hotel is like going to my second home (I stay there three to four times per month). By doing so, I probably have already been to every room in the hotel and can attest how comfortable, efficient and clean they are. It's like everything's brand new. The staff is... More

The hotel was very nice and the front desk was very helpful. We spent two nights there while touring around the Redwoods National Park. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Also, their included breakfast was very delicious and full of variety. I would stay again.

This hotel has bed bugs. I woke up with two sets of bites and ended up bringing them home with me. So, the hotel needs to identify which rooms are infested and deal with this. Otherwise, wonderful staff, fine rooms, good location.

Hi Madi, Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. We are very concerned that there could be a potential bed bug issue with the guest room you stayed in during your stay with us in April 2014. I hope that you might have the opportunity to contact us directly. I would like to provide the room number to the... More

We had plenty of space. The continental breakfast was excellent. Staff was very friendly and helpful. This hotel was clearly one of the nicest in the area. We feel like we made a good choice to stay there.

Very easy to get to off route 101 (You can see the lighted sign at night); room clean and comfortable. Complimentary breakfast, among many other things, has sausage patties, scrambled eggs, and (one day) also omelets. Local newspaper and USA today. Ample parking.
