Looking for a cool place in Arcata to party with the locals? The Hotel Arcata is for you! Don't care if some of the local club kids pass out at 3am in the hall? The Hotel Arcata is for you. If you don't mind the passed out drunk in the hall the Arcata Police will cart em off.

Too bad the management can't keep the trash out of this place, it is a nice old hotel.

If you want to sleep before 3 am, stay away!!!!

I liked thsi cool old hotel in the historic town square of Arcata. It's close to bars and restaurants which is great when you're at the bar/restaurant, but not so great when you're in your room trying to sleep.

The room was big and the town was cool. I like old places like this, but if you want all the modern comforts, you shoudl go elsewhere.

This hotel is old and VERY run down, in other words a DUMP! The room was dirty/smelly/old and way over priced at $116/night. Nice to have a huge spider hanging around the bathroom; killed one but another showed up the next day, wife was not happy. She wanted to leave when she saw the room, but at 6pm with a dinner appointment at 6:15 what could we do. So we stayed there 2 nights, but will never do so again. Do yourself a large favor, find another place!

If you want to stay in "downtown" Arcata you have no choice but to stay at this "historic" hotel. It's smack in the middle of the town square so you are close to restaurants, shops, a food coop and a string of bars that are next door. The rooms are circa 1915 and have little comfort (incliuding a hard bed, mediocre pillows, slow Wifi, funky plumbing and a stale smell throughout); some may consider this quaint and part of the "Humboldt experience", I found it unappealing and longed for a Best Western.

Tons of stoners and drunks abound outside, complete with public urination and stumbling stupidity, just to make your "Humboldt experience" complete. All the more reason to stay outside the town square.

The hotel has character and is In the center of town but the overwhelming amount of vagrants and locals hanging out in the park and local bars makes it a bit scary. The rollaway bed in our room had not been cleaned and was full of flea droppings. Apparently, the last person who stayed there must have let their dog sleep on it. The help was very apologetic and reduced the cost so it's hard to say if we just caught it on a bad night.
