10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was clean, the service was great, the breakfast was delicious! Plus they were very fast at picking you up, and taking you to the airport via shuttle. One of the best hotels I've ever stayed at.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I arrived to a warm, recently renovated, lobby. Check in management was wonderful and accommodating: I was asked which floor I'd prefer to stay on; when I asked for water, I was given 2 bottles free for the room. Nice warm cookies, fresh fruit, and coffee in break area. The room was clean, quite, and the stay was excellent. In the morning, the breakfast bar had everything (best self-service I've ever seen). I needed airport shuttle and Monica was terrific - I will definitely stay here again!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff at the front desk work overly friendly and concerned about my happiness
6.2 Good
Pros: Room was great, the restaurant was surprisingly good, the guy at the check out counter in the am was very professional and had a warm smile.
Cons: Girl at the counter upon check in, I think Samantha. We were the only ones checking in, no greeting, no eye contact, I had to initiate a response by asking "how are you" to which she responded I am good, and then continued her conversation with the other front desk girl and the guy with the blue rubber gloves on, I am assuming the housekeeper. Listen guys, you can make or break a stay just by the first impressions, how you are greeted, if you feel welcome. We felt like an inconvenience checking in, this is not a good feeling. Your facility is nice, however, I will stay at the casino in Trinidad next time for sure.

8.2 Excellent
Pros: Motel was as it should be. Staff was courteous and polite.
Cons: Breakfast was mediocre, but I'm probably looking for a healthier breakfast than I should expect to get at a chain hotel. They were doing construction on the rooms next to us, and although they didn't start at too unreasonable of a time, it was unexpected on the weekend.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: I was probably most surprised by the extensive breakfast options. Staff was amazing. There was a cute gazebo. I used the hot tub twice.
Cons: The room smelled heavily of air freshener. I like scent free rooms. Sometimes heavy smells like that give me a migraine. It was so intense I aired the room out for a while when I checked in.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice large room with refrigerator and microwave. Beds were comfortable.
Cons: Shower hardly drained, rather lame for a motel at this price. Lots of pillows, but no variation in thickness. Hard for those of us with neck problems. A bit noisy, dogs barking in room near us and people coming in in the middle of the night talking and laughing loudly. Useless one cup coffee machine. They have free coffee in the check in area, but I would rather have coffee and wake up in my room without having to get dressed and go out. Even though I brought my own coffee with me, the tiny one cup coffee maker was unusable as it is designed for the packets of coffee (which are terrible). Why bother?

9.7 Excellent
Pros: Overall the room was great. There were 2 of us so the room was perfect. Beds were comfortable. Good location for visiting up and down the coast. I will definitely stay at there hotel again. My son enjoyed the pool. Room was well insulated, I didn't hear any noise from other rooms. Just people talking or pulling luggage by the room (at reasonable time ). We had a upstairs room.
Cons: First weekday morning for breakfast ( around 8:30am) there was about 8 people getting breakfast, both coffee pots empty, oatmeal empty, yogurt empty, 2 front counter staff, 1 just stood there, the other was talking to a woman applying for a job and answering the phone. Not the best breakfast set up location. The next day was a little better.

4.6 Okay
Pros: The price of course always helps with a budget crunch. The rooms were remodeled and clean. The location was a bit far from downtown arcata, but a great bike ride there.
Cons: I could hear the people next door argue like at 1 am and could here everything. I received a phone call prior to getting to the motel by a front desk clerk pressing me about showing up and how the motel was overbooked, I don't need to hear the hotel problems? On the good side the same couple that was arguing the night before had passionate sex at 6 am. The reason I know is because I could hear EVERYTHing! Low key it did turn me on and I smashed the girl sleeping next to me right after :/

3.1 Mediocre
Pros: The night staff was very nice!!
Cons: The room was gross. The comforters were both stained. The towels were also stained. There were little hairs all over the toilet seat, in the sink, on the towels, and in the bed. A lot of sketchy people hang out/stay there. People were talking loudly and slamming doors all night long. There’s also a high risk that your car could get broken into so don’t leave anything in your car.

Hotel Arcata - Arcata - Building
7.7 Good (397 reviews)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: historic and convenient
6.5 Good
Pros: Due to it's age, it has some character. It is in a very good location. Very centralized.
Cons: Everything in it is old. It doesn't feel historical, and charming (which is what i was hoping for). it is next to 3 dive bars, and the plaza in the middle looses its appeal as it is constantly populated by homeless looking young adults smoking weed the whole time. All of this contributes to the hotel's loss of charm.

5.4 Okay
Pros: Right off the 101.
Cons: Back in February the Front desk guy did not want to print out my receipt for my expense reports. He rudely asked why I needed it and why I could not just print it myself from email. (Like I should stop at a local library or Kinkos on my business trip or what?) I asked if he would print it while I packed my car up and when I returned he again had a snarky comment and no receipt for me saying he isn't allowed to print it. I asked for a manager and finally the desk guy printed my receipt. Fast forward a month and I'm back only to discover i have been blacklisted from this red roof inn for wanting my receipt printed out. Stay away from this place.

5.4 Okay

We reserved a deluxe room, but got a standard room, when I called the front desk they said they didn't have any other rooms and to speak to management in the morning. Management offered a $10 refund, with no explanation why we didn't get a deluxe except someone else must have complained about their room so they got switched to another leaving us with the undesirable room.
