Made a reservation requesting nonsmoking first floor room and arrived to find completely opposite. After waiting 20 minutes for change to be made things became worse in room. Found no towels-went to desk and waited 15 minutes for desk clerk to come back. Gave up and called and was told she would find towels and bring them in fifteen. No towels ever arrived. Gave up. Got into bed and was jumped in by a FLEA in a non pet room. Washed off with washcloth and tried to sleep in bed with bottom sheet that kept coming off mattress. Have I mentioned that the "pillows" are decorative sofa size, not real pillows? DISASTER. Told front desk these things in morning. They could have cared less.

Stayed here for Coastal trip, inexpensive and close to 101 highway, nice size rooms, clean. Friendly helpful staff offered me a drink on check in. Adjacent RV park shares pool and hot tub, our friends stayed there. Basic breakfast with sausage and ham, waffles, fruit. Recommended

Room Tip: Upper floors are quieter, facing pool side

Check in was very quick and friendly. Room is huge with a nice king bed. Clean bed linen and bathroom was big and clean too. Being on the road for several nights and many motels are next to the free way, this was a good change as the night went very quiet with good sleep. The breakfast is good with eggs and wafles etc which get replanished quickly. Will definitly come back.

Since I work in different states for my job, a comfortable, quiet room with internet access is essential. The facility is clean and relatively quiet with great staff and a general manager who is actively involved with customer satisfaction. The only downside to my 3 month stay was the terrible (and sometimes nonexistent) internet service. The constant response I received when asking about it was "It's being worked on". My advice for anyone staying who wants a really quiet experience is to ask for a room on the top floor. While the noise from room to room is minimal, if you are under someone you will hear every footstep. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone who depends on their computers for daily work or activity.

Room Tip: Top floor will be the quietest rooms.

My family and recently stayed two nights here while visiting the Redwoods. The motel was quiet, inexpensive, clean and easy access to the freeway. Shops and restaurants are nearby and downtown Arcata and the University are a short drive away. The staff was friendly and efficient. The only downside to our stay, was that the internet was down while we were there.

This is a lovely hotel very comfortable, clean, quiet & with a fantastic staff. Breakfast was great & served in a lovely clean dining room. When we come back to the USA we will certainly come back to this Hotel.

Room Tip: We had a room over looking the garden so it was inward facing & away from the highway so it was...

Not a bad hotel, or even near that category. The Quality Inn Arcata Ca.is nice. The rooms need some updating and better caring for, but overall... good.
The neighborhood this motel is in is very good. Access to freeway is excellent. Lots of food places nearby as well.
I think that this motel is good for the price. Very helpful and friendly staff. I would stay here again when in the area.
