We stayed in the Jacuzzi room and had an amazing stay. After driving for 13 hours we stopped here with no reservation. It was before check-in time but they worked hard to get a room ready for us within 5 minutes. The extra money was well worth it to stay in this room because we could fill the Jacuzzi with... More

An OK hotel in a quiet area. Close to the Ocean if you care for a refreshing stroll. As for the hotel you can see some wear and tear, but nothing major. Breakfast area is rather small and the breakfast itself is very limited. Small refrigerator in the room and not possible to shut the thick curtains to block all... More

In spite of good service and spacious rooms this is a hotel without charm and clearly ready for serious rehabilitation - even a layer of fresh white paint, some modern curtains and preferably a wooden floor would do wonders. Old carpets hold on to unpleasant smells. The free wifi could unfortunately not compensate for the rather unattractive breakfast; paper plates,... More

We really had a great experience with the staff at this hotel. We had booked via a hotel app very late at night, but it turns out that the time zone considered it to be after midnight and actually booked us for the following day. When we arrived, we had no reservation for that night (a Saturday) and the hotel... More

We booked a room with a bed and a pullout, you could feel every spring in your back. I booked another room to get a regular bed it was the last available and smelled disgusting. The room was huge as was the bathroom . Free Hot breakfast was available.

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights with my mom and 2 kids. We had 2 rooms with 2 queen beds each. The rooms were spacious, clean, nicely decorated, with good sized bathrooms. Towels were always fresh and several seemed new. My kids loved the indoor pool and I used the fitness center. Both were clean and welcoming. The pool... More

We recently stayed one night at this Holiday Inn Express. We really loved the different layout of the hotel, which was not your "typical" Holiday Inn Express layout. It has only 2 floors and the hallways branch off in several directions. The top floor is open to the lobby and has a very nice open staircase. We had requested in... More

Overall good experience, location is isolated near the airport, very quiet. Kaitlyn at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. It is about 5 minutes from downtown which is extremely small. Breakfast is below average.

We like to use Holiday Inn Express so on a trip to the Redwoods we booked the McKinleyville HIE. Although it is by the Arcata Airport we never heard a sound!

We stayed at this new Holiday Inn Express, very clean, close to the airport and coastal highway. We were able to take day trips up the highway and venture off onto smaller roads, enjoying the scenery and the ocean views.
