Everything was nice at this hotel, clean, great breakfast, I recommend it. The staff is very friendly, fresh baked cookies in the lobby........the Jacuzzi was not working when we were there, which was disappointing but other than that, it was great.

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality and service at this property. We stayed one night on our way to the Big Sur. The room was well appointed with quality sheets and towels and exceptionally clean. The staff were very helpful and answered questions before we even asked. For all of this, the price was incredibly reasonable.

Very nice hotel with great service. Will definitely stay again . . . I lived for many years in the Arcata/McKinleyville area - moved away in 1982 so it was a blast from the past to stay in a nice place with great accommodations while visiting the area.

We usually stay in a Holiday Inn or Marriott Hotel, but they were so expensive for this area that we decided to try the Best Western. The beds were some of the most comfortable we've slept in and the rooms were very nice. I would highly recommend this hotel. We were there 3 nights.

Stayed here one night while traveling South on a summer kids trip. We had stayed in may different budget style hotels on our 17 days out. This was much better than we expected. The staff was super nice. Young people who actually looked you in the eye, smiled, and spoke to you like a normal person. The staff was surprisingly... More

This hotel is motel style, however, the rooms were clean and fairly updated. There are a few pools but no fitness room. The breakfast is standard best western and just fine as well. This hotel is just fine for a night or two. It is close to the 101 exit and it is about a 10 minute drive from downtown... More

Very pleasant one night stay. The room was clean and spacious, the bed was comfortable, it was quiet, breakfast was good, and the staff were the friendliest we encountered among the seven places we stayed on our vacation. Arcata itself is a lovely town with lots of restaurants, but if you don't want to travel the mile or so into... More

A friend and I went to Arcata for a weekend on a lark and after reading reviews and checking prices we settled on this hotel. I'm so glad we did! Our room was clean and spacious, and had both a mini fridge and a microwave. This was a great place to land each night of our trip. The beds were... More
