I booked this property due to the good reviews on Trip Advisor. I concur with pretty much what was noted: super friendly staff, breakfast is actually quite nice and the rooms appear to be recently updated and generally pretty nice. I thought the rooms were actually pretty spacious. Here's what I would want to be aware of which I think...

Well tended grounds ( though soggy from recent rain) to walk dog or hang out, very nice 'indoor/outdoor' pool and spa. Great breakfast... anywhere that also has Greek yogurt gets extra points from me! Quiet despite being near highway. Nice staff. Clean and comfortable and pet friendly - what's not to like?

Excellent location right off the 101 highway, while it looked like an older motel the interior is quite different, rooms are upgraded and equal to any four star hotel. Easy access to a small shopping area.

I really liked this hotel. It was clean and in a great location. I loved that they had a huge lawn to walk your dogs. My Border Collie is very picky and she had plenty of spots to go potty. They also provide you with poop bags, not every hotel does that. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my...

Came here to move our son to the university. I was bummed there isn't much close to the university but this ended up not being a bad drive at all. Overall a good place for the value. It was quiet and the room was spacious. The included breakfast was really pretty good! Much better than the included breakfast at the...

We stayed one weekend night in mid-February. Overall, a very good choice. Rooms are basic, nothing fancy, but clean and with comfortable beds, frig, microwave. Great water pressure in the shower, and the shower head is up high. Front desk check in clerk was extremely friendly and helpful (and there are fresh cookies at the desk). She even carried a...

Were originally looking to book a place in Eureka but kept having booking problems over the internet through expedia. Landed up picking this place instead because it looked like the best option for the money we were willing to spend plus I was also keen on checking Arcata out on this trip. We got caught in the rain storm that...

Came to Arcata to visit our son, who is currently a student at CSU, Humboldt. This hotel is nicely kept and is located close to the Highway 101 and a grocery store. We were traveling with our dog and they have a nice pet area as well. There are many good restaurants in Arcata area also.

I love northern CA because of how friendly everyone is. This BW embraces that friendliness AND THEN SOME! Happiest staff I've ever met. Made me feel really good to be there! The lobby is super clean, the breakfast was fantastic and the free 24-7 coffee was an awesome perk. The rooms were quiet and chill and lovely. I will definitely...
