“Clogged tub and sink”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2012 via mobile

There are a few things that really gross me put when traveling and staying in a motel. And clogged tubs are one.
Location right off highway 101 and near several fast foods and restaurants. So if you have to stay somewhere while in the area this will do. At least there's also free wifi, HD tv with fast cable, and a working fridge. Tomorrow I will be checking out the continental breakfast.

It was difficult to find a decent hotel in this area at a reasonable price. We finally settled on Best Western Arcata and it worked out very well. The rooms were recently renovated and the rooms are better than one would assume from the external look of the hotel.

While this hotel did a good job updating since I was last there, they failed to get new beds which was desperately needed. Our backs were so sore from the one night we stayed there I will not stay there again. Also it felt icky to walk barefoot as the carpet was damp and in some spots wet.

Good price but not worth it.

Room Tip: If you don't mind a lousy bed choose an upstairs room.

We stayed one night and it did the job. The room was clean and spacious and the breakfast was your typical breakfast with the added addition of hard boiled eggs. Both front desk staffers were friendly and helpful.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012

I stayed at this motel for one night. It is the older style of lodging where the guest drives up and parks in front of their room. The hotel is close to the highway, and close to food and the university. The rooms are redone: new flat screen TV, new bed, new shower, coffee maker, microwave, and small fridge. The rooms are clean. They serve a continental breakfast. It is basic, but satisfactory.

The down side was that the internet was not working. An effort was made to fix it but they were not successful. I was given a 15% refund on my bill, but the manager made it out to be big favor. She said that free internet is a extra service and is not part of the room price for a guest. I did not want to argue with her but this reason is ridiculous. Internet service is a staple of the hotel industry now. The entire world utilizes the internet, and a majority of people use the internet for work. If the internet is down, it can effect productivity and business. To say that internet service is a bonus is not appropriate. I am sure that if internet service would not be provided at all, many guest would not even stay at this hotel.

Overall, this facility is fine. I will give them another chance.

This property is an old motel style (all exterior hallways and stairs, 2 stories) that has been renovated and is quite acceptable. Room was clean. Breakfast was typical and price made the night a decent value. Indoor pool/hot tub was OK but again, working from old starting point. In April it was a good value and it has been renovated well. Parking was tight and the neighborhood was shopping area so no ambiance to speak of.

My husband and I stayed here July 22nd through July 28th. Our room was very clean and everyday we left and came back it was cleaned again. The beds are very comfortable and the hotel is quiet too. The front desk personal are very friendly and helpful. The location is good too as it is right by Highway 101, has a grocery store across the street and restaurants too.

We have stayed here before and will continue to choose it as our place to stay while visiting up North.
