I recently attended a training at Humboldt State University and chose to stay at the Hotel Arcata because of the proximity to the University. Humboldt County is a very unique place and the Hotel Arcata epitomizes the spirit of the town. The location on the town square makes shoping and dining very convenient, but also lend it to quite a bit of noise from the revelers and from the garbage trucks and street sweepers early in the morning. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the people of Arcata in general were all very welcoming and nice. There are quite a few "houseless" that hang out on the town square and do not be shocked to witness quite a few partaking in Humboldt County's Finest.

We picked the Arcata on the base of our travel guide (who will also get this review) and its central location. The receptionist was friendly enough to inform us that the last room available was on the second floor on the back and suffers from noise from the bar next door. Because of its central location, we decided to rough it out. But it wasn't the street noise that bothered us. The neighbours were noisy on every side, people were shouting in the halls and knocking on doors, plus there were ants in the room. Walking around the square outside wasn't exactly a relaxing experience either, we felt quite unsafe. We stayed one night and then went to the Arcata Days Inn, which was a joy to stay. No value for money at the Arcata Hotel, you'll wake up tired there.

This was a cheap night's stay, so I wasn't expecting too much, but it was pretty basic. The room was OK, but dark, and the bathroom needed work. The reception was very medicore, no help was offered with bags and we had to ask how to get to our room!

There are very, very few facilities in this hotel, no bar and the japanese restaurant attached to the hotel seems to be the only option for dining. There are lots of very nice eateries around the square where the hotel is, so there are plenty of options for dinner.

Breakfast is served in the reception area and is coffee and muffins etc, with nowhere really to eat it.

The worst thing is the parking, which is so complicted they have to give you a laminated fact sheet to explain where you can and can't park, and we were lucky to get a space.

I woudn't go back.

$170.00 ? The rooms are dirty, smell bad, and have ants. There are so many bums outside that it smells outside, and you can't walk three feet without someone trying to bum money off of you. The manager is a very rude and mean lady who will make sure you have a very bad stay. Seriously the worst time ever ! Ruined my whole trip.

The Hotel Arcata is what it is. A convenient hotel in a historic building right on the square in Arcata. It needs to have the wallpaper and carpets replaced BADLY. And, do bring earplugs, as the Arcata Plaza is home to many homeless folks who can be quite noisy as you try to sleep.

The rooms are simple and really small. The things I like about it besides it's location? Well, the daytime receptionist for one. I believe her name is Mary Martha (?) and she is truly a joy. She's been there for many years and is always really pleasant.

The continental breakfast is simple, but the organic fresh brewed coffee, fresh fruit and muffins are refreshing in a world of hotel breakfast junk food.

The staff at this hotel is very courteous and I do like that this hotel is owned by a local Indian Tribe and you can see wonderful photos displayed on the walls.

When you stay at this hotel, book a rez at Tomos, the sushi restaurant adjoining the hotel. It's really good. Get the 'dinner for two'.
