The service was excellent, the bed was very comfortable, the decor was quite attractive, and the entire place was exceptionally clean.

This hotel is by far the nicest hotel in the Arcata/Euerka area. I have stayed here numerous times and I have never been disappointed.
The check-in was flawless with the staff going the extra mile to make you happy. I always ask for a first floor room facing the rear of the building which is extremely quiet. A group of young adults arrived 3 nights into my stay, and were given a room across the hall from me. They actually told me to knock on their door if they became too loud during the night. I heard absolutely nothing from them. The rooms are extremely well insulated and that's important to me because I am a light sleeper.
Complimentary breakfast is included in your stay. I loved the fresh fruit, and the homemade oatmeal. Of course, there were eggs, meat and waffles which I cannot comment on because those are prepared foods I do not care to eat (too much salt).
The location is perfect for getting on Hwy. 101 or Hwy. 299. If for some reason you don't care to drive, there is a strip mall a block from the Hampton which hosts a Ray's supermarket, a great Mexican restaurant, and even a Dollar Store.
If I had to say what really made this hotel successful, it was the staff. They truly care about their guests which makes you want to return.

I do have to wonder why this "Hampton Inn and Suites" doesn't offer an actual "Suite", but other than that, we had a really nice stay. Beds are comfortable, service was fast, pleasant, and efficient, there was a lot of food choice in the breakfast, and the property was well maintained and/or pretty new. No loud fridge or heater/AC to wake you, and we all got a great couple nights' sleep. The pool is really pretty nice and we had a great time using that. Plenty of seating next to the pool. Could have seen more cleanup and maintenance in the pool area–guests left a lot of towels around and no one seemed to be regularly cleaning them up.

Definitely will stay here again in the future, I come up for family visits regularly and this is the best option we've found so far for a comfortable hotel to keep the kids entertained.

This hotel was the nicest Hampton Inn that I have stayed in. The staff is very courteous and the girl at the front desk was the friendliest I have met. I highly recommend this hotel.

I have stayed in Hampton hotels before and always been happy to do so, and the one in Arcata is no exception. Large rooms, well appointed and comfortable, free Wifi (that actually works!) freely available tea/coffee both in the rooms and the lobby and friendly, efficient staff. Not much else I need from a hotel, so more than happy to commend this one.

Not sure on location though; we were maybe a five minute drive from a restaurant in Arcata I planned to eat at, but on calling a cab, we were told it would be around a 40 minute wait! We drove instead and I got the impression that the Hampton was not entirely local - it was dark so I may be wrong.

Having a nice hotel to stay at in Arcata will make my work and travel much more efficient as I have always stay in Eureka before. The hotel is very welcoming, with a nice warm lobby and nice bright hallways. The rooms are nice and warm with a functional computer table and chair, wireless and wired internet in the room. The lamps are place in good locations for reading or computer work. The bathrooms are roomy with shower heads tall enough for me at 6’ 2” to stand under with plenty of room. Restaurants are within walking distance, I personally recommend the Kebab Café for great Mediterranean food.

It is indeed the nicest place to stay in Arcata, and the most expensive, with standard rooms running about $130-160 a night. The WiFi is dependable but hardly warp speed, housekeeping and the rest of the staff are pleasant and helpful, and the indoor pool and gym are terrific and unexpected. Big flat screen TV although the local cable leaves a bit to be desired (not all major networks are available in HD), good refrigerator and microwave in room. Convenient to HSU and "downtown" as well as to airport, although in a less than atmospheric part of town where many big rigs park their trucks by the fast food joints and the Dollar Tree-anchored shopping mall. Still, for Arcata this is as good as it gets.

Room Tip: There really aren't any bad rooms.
