We tried booking a hotel in Arcata for HSU move-in date, but they were all sold out, so we stayed at the north end of Eureka at Red Lion. We had a very nice stay at this hotel. Room was extra spacious, bed was very comfy and plenty of parking. It was nice to have a sink outside the bathroom, so you could continue with make-up/brushing teeth while someone else was in the bathroom. Room had a fridge and coffee maker. We requested a quiet room and they gave us a room on the top (3rd) floor. The rooms on the backside of the hotel don't have a balcony, but they have a large window overlooking the bay. Rooms on front side have balcony which overlooks the street and parking lot, so backside of hotel is better for us. All staff was friendly. Our rate included breakfast, which was nothing special and I wouldn't pay extra for it, but it was included in the government rate. Not sure about regular room prices, as we booked under state government rate, which was good. We'll stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms on backside of hotel are quieter and overlook bay. Rooms on front side have balcony but overlook busy street and parking lot.

Serviceable lodging in a town with few options. Property a little tired, but room clean enough. Skip the onsite restaurant as many better options a few blocks into town. Has a serviceable gym and a small pool.
Front desk staff was fine. Price probably slightly high in a market like Eureka but not bad.

I've stayed here a few times and each time it looks like it's not been cleaned since the time before. It's hard to imagine a management team looking at these rooms and deciding they are clean enough. I thought about taking pictures but they are just too gross. There is mold under the shower knobs, in the grout, the windows haven't been touched in a long time. The white cloth shower curtain was filthy and there are cigarette butts all over the outside, just outside the sliding door. It's not just a little dirty. The room smells bad and you could walk in blind and know they don't care about cleanliness. The only reason I gave it two stars instead of one is because they accept dogs and even they go on nasty smell sensory overload. I wonder how inept a management team has to be to not notice this stuff. Seriously, stay away from this dump.

We spent three days here with a motorcycle group, and loved the place. Every single member of the staff greeted us, even the housekeepers. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
Our room was spacious and clean, with fridge and microwave. The bed was comfortable. It was nice to have a wash basin in the bathroom and another one outside.
The hotel allows dogs.

The main elevator is by the lobby then there is another one halfway down the corridor but that one doesn't go to the level where the parking lot it. It stops both above, and below, so you have to go down the the basement, walk to the end of the corridor then back along the sidewalk.

I had problems with getting my iPad to access the wifi. It was very spotty. The girl at the front desk was helpful.

The restaurant and bar staff were extremely customer service oriented although the waitress at breakfast seemed beyond frazzled. The breakfast buffet (paid, not complimentary) was excellent. There is a Subway right across the street from the hotel, and Target is in easy walking distance.

When staying here, you have to take a walking tour of the downtown area. It's not far away and the old houses are simply gorgeous.

I would book again but a few problems were quickly resolved. Our original room was suppose to be nonsmoking. It smelled heavily of smoke. They quickly change rooms to a clean, smoke-free room. Hint- DO NOT let them book you in the room across from the elevators. It's also located next to housekeeping and its very noisey. The room was very nice, clean and well appointed.The bathroom was clean and nice-good toiletries. You can judge a lot about a room by the bathroom don't you think? Couldn't hear too much highway traffic. This is Eureka so GO OUT for dinner. I wasn't satisfied at all with my dinner in their restaurant. Good service, bad dinner food, "rest-home atmosphere. The breakfast, however, was excellent. I highly recommend paying extra for the breakfast buffet. Great food, lots of variety.

Room Tip: Pay extra for the breakfast buffet
