“Stay clear!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Just a note to my friends that travel! Stay clear as the hotel is cheep and the Casino is evan cheeper!!! They say they have rv parking? You park in the same lot as the cars do!!! They evan charge you 4.50 for a beer and thats playing at the 21 table spending 50 bucks a hand. really? 4.50? they said its a California law to charge for a beer THAN DON"T CHARGE 4.50 CHARGE A BUCK FOR PEOPLE PLAYING 50 BUCKS A HAND!!!! The casino is really smoky and I would know I lived 21 years in Las Vegas What a dive!!!! We asked to see a room and decided to pass as It was a step above a Motel Six. This is a property to just pass and keep going!!!

Very nice rooms, easy parking, clean. We are non-gambling adults traveling around Humboldt County. Blue Lake casino/hotel was a fair price for a nice centralized location for Trinity River, Fern Canyon, Hum Co. Fair

I've heard complaints about late night noise but in separate stays of 4 days each, I've heard not a peep. The room was clean, functional, and slightly more upscale than expected. Be sure to sign up in the Casino because when you show the front desk your players card, you get a room discount! Breakfast in Alice's was quite good and reasonably priced. its a fiod thing because nearby dining options are nearly non-existent. Plan to drive 10 minutes or more for most services.

The hotel was nice and better than expected for a pretty low price. The room was very clean and large. They also give you many vouchers for food and slot discounts when you check in, so it made eating on the property very reasonable. The casino is small by Vegas standards, and mostly slots. I like slots, so I was happy. Overall, I would recommend staying here if you are int he area.And the pool is fine, but it is essentially in the parking lot which was a turn off for me.

A new facility. Large rooms, decent décor. Excellent pool and good family atmosphere. On site restaurant and bar. Staff in bar were either incompetent, or just not happy to be working there. Meaning service was poor. When I told the front desk the internet was poor at best, he didn't seem really concerned. Other than he'll report it. And then he told me I possibly should have moved into the lobby where it probably worked better. it would have helped if they told me that when I checked in. For families, probably great. For business travelers, it was missing some things like refrigerators, reliable internet that this business traveler has grown accustomed to. My guess is they could use some good hotel management expertise that would bring it up to speed.

We stayed here during HSU graduation, so the room rates were high. We have previously stayed at three other properties in Arcata, and we think this is the best value.

The property is fairly new. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, although some construction defects are apparent. In our room, the floor was not level, and the drywall corner bead was separating from the wall. On the other hand, we had the quietest room in the hotel, as it did not adjoin another room.

Other reviewers have commented about the front desk staff. This is the busiest weekend of the year, and they should staff the front desk to handle the demand. Unfortunately, they did not, so the desk staff was trying to wait on a line of guests, answer phones, and direct other staff to meet guest needs. Under the circumstances, they were probably not at their best. While not quite rude, they weren't personable or friendly.

We did not have a problem with rowdy guests, although some of the other guests that we spoke to indicated that there were some problem guests on other floors. Again, it seemed that staff was spread too thin to effectively handle problems. I suspect that if you stayed some time when the hotel was not 100% full, the service might be better.

When I called recently to make reservations, the reservation desk phone kept ringing and ringing - no answer. Then I called back and told the operator and he said the person who takes reservations was on a break and he told me to call back(!) Very strange. Anyway, my husband and I have stayed here several times because we have family in the area and this is a new and conveniently located hotel. The rooms are spacious (especially the bathrooms) and clean however the walls seems to be paper thin because you can hear the slightest noise in the adjoining room. I appreciated the two bottles of spring water in the room. On arrival and departure the front desk staff are monotone and brisk. Upon check out no one asked how we enjoyed our stay. It was "sign here" and be on your way basically.

Room Tip: If your room overlooks the parking lot you will hear noise from people arriving and leaving and some...
