I choose this place totally off a website. It is in a good location (maybe hotel row?). Places to eat nearby and close to the freeway. The rooms are nice and spacious. The bed and pillows excellent. Surprisingly great breakfast. Free too! Fresh cookies available all day. But the best was Robert at the front desk. He made me feel... More

This motel provided a warm, dry, cleanish place for travelers. It seemed a bit outdated, although carpets look fairly new. For a pet room, it did not smell, so that was very gratifying. All in all, fair value for what we needed.

Bryan has been here since we started coming to the coast, always friendly and knowledgeable. 7 yrs ago signed me up for Best Western rewards. We enjoy the breakfast and the spa/pool every time. The rooms are always nice, clean and comfortable. Great job staff! Compliments to the house keeping for an outstanding job! We will be back.

Everything was great, only just make the pool and the jacuzzi with a temperature gauge to make the water temperature warmer. The breakfast was very plentiful and my room was right next to the vending machines which was nice when I needed a quick snack.

I have stayed at this property for over 500 nights over an 18 year period. During this time, the property has been consistently upgraded in ways big and small. Locally owned, the Inn is friendly people doing their best to make sure you are at home while you are away from home. Great value.

We had traveled all day through on and off bad weather. When we finally arrived in Arcata, it was really raining and was very dark. The staff recommended a great restaurant for dinner and gave us very good directions, which were much needed in the bad weather. When we came back into the lobby, we discussed our travel for the...

We have stayed at the Best Western Arcata Inn whenever in the Humboldt County area for the past 16 years. Obviously, we are happy with the motel and its staff. The staff remains fairly constant, and it is always nice to enter the door and have whoever is at the desk say" Welcome back." The rooms are always neat and... More

A very pleasant stay in Arcata over the Christmas Holiday. Having the indoor hot tub directly across from the guest room was quite nice during cold, rainy weather. Staff was extremely helpful and cooperative. I will definitely stay there again when I return to visit family in the area.

The Arcata Inn is our idea of a perfect hotel for a road trip. The property is very well maintained, the staff are always cheerful and helpful and the rooms are comfortable. There are some very interesting things to visit in the Arcata area and even though the Arcata Inn isn't right in the middle of town it is very... More

Positives: Laundry service, pool, and hot tub in hotel. Close by car to tourist sites. Hotel is well maintained and staff is friendly and helpful. Negatives: Immediate neighborhood is safe but charmless.
