I always stay at Best Western because there are no surprises. I always know that the accommodations will be clean and the staff will be friendly. I always stay at the BW Arcata because of this reason and the price is reasonable

On our way through N. California, Arcata was our choice. This is an older property, but don't let the exterior fool you, the rooms are up to date and clean and comfortable. Front desk service was attentive and helpful.

Beds we quite comfortable, rooms was larger than I expected and had a nice floorplan.

The area around the hotel was a bit rundown, and this area is Hotel Row, numerous Hotels all 1 right after the other. The road out front needs some serious maintenance, I've seen smoother cobblestone roads....


There are food options nearby a few different restaurants, including fast food right across the street, and a grocery store nearby.

I will consider staying again when in the area.

Motel is family and pet friendly. Grounds are well maintained and staff is pleasant. Area around motel is less desirable. Lots of pan handling and althought there is a store across from the motel we found that three out of five of the customers in the store smelled so bad you had to go the other direction.

Book on the internet for a quality stay at a bargain price. The beds were roomy and more comfortable than my own. The room was clean and quiet. The location is perfect - near the freeway but not right on the freeway. Local shopping and fast food is convenient. Dining in Downtown Arcata is 10 minutes away by car. Downtown Eureka, which has a lot going on, is 20 minutes. The Avenue of the GIants is 1 hour away South and Crescent City/Jeddediah Smith is 1.5 hours north. Redwood National Park is 40 minutes. Spectacular marshes, brackish lakes, rivers, lagoons, and breathtaking beaches are all within easy day trip range.

The hotel was fine; the room was clean. The mattress sagged a little, but not terribly so. The continental breakfast was good, but not amazing. The area around the hotel leaves something to be desired, however.

Helpful staff, many conveniences (gas, groceries, restaurant) nearby. Attractive grounds. The rooms themselves are actually just average (big, but with some funky old furniture). And the smallish pool and jacuzzi were positively overrun with small kids (even at 9:30pm on a Friday night). If I could rate it 3.5 stars, I would, but it's not easy to find solid alternatives for a decent price in this region, so I'm bumping my rating up to 4 stars. Just don't expect to be "blown away"...

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to stay in the rooms that back up to the freeway -- they're actually very qu...
