You couldn't hear the planes at the airport and I think we were in the corner closest to the runway. It's a beautiful location. If you like running, you can jog down under the highway and take a right to the Hubbard trail. If you run to the parking lot down the hill and back that's a good 7.1kms.

The breakfast was good, but the pancake maker was broken. That's fine. They had yogurt and fresh fruit. Yumm.

The beds. Remarkable. We loved ours so much, we actually got the make/model written down and will likely buy that same set now that we are back home. I've never had such a good night's sleep.

We usually stay at Holiday Inns and have been to many. We got in late and were given a room near the stairs! Noisy! Given that nobody was up at that time, we we were given a room with only two beds--enough for only four--when our reservation was for five. We were told that they didn't have any other rooms and no rollaways! Hair in the sink and in the shower! The room was confusing: orange drapes, blue and white striped carpet, red upholstered furniture. Asking for extra sheets was such a pain for staff to obtain. We were given the worst room. Wifi was terrible. Halls look like the carpet needed cleaning! Brown, brown, brown. Breakfast in the morning was busy, small, and messy, nothing was stocked! We only got the coffee--watered down and cold. Very disappointing stay. I won't be back!

We stay at a LOT of HI properties in different states and this is a decent, clean property with a nice, friendly staff. Let's be clear about location though. They are in McKinleyville. The name says Arcata/Eureka and they are somewhat close but not that close. Inside the hotel you have literally no phone service. You have to walk around outside to find a a strong enough signal (we have Verizon which is usually strong most everywhere). Lobby is nice and staff was very nice. Tried to work in "business area". Kind of a joke since it is basically in the lobby behind a half wall. No way to work in a quiet environment when you can hear every word being said at the desk. Rooms were basic and clean. Bathrooms could definitely use an update. Breakfast was the usual served at a HI Express. It was very busy but a gal was doing her best to keep things filled. Someone else complained that wi-fi didn't work but it was working just fine for our entire party on 4 different devices. Phone service was the problem. Overall good place for a nights sleep as you are passing through on 101. FYI, doors must be thin as I could hear people talking in rooms while I walked hall to my room. Once in the room however, we didn't hear anyone and slept pretty well.

This hotel was great. Spacious rooms, nice and clean. Check in was easy. The counter staff were pretty good. The one guy worked extra hard to get us rooms together without us needing to ask. I would definitely stay here again. The only thing that we didn't like was the wifi. We couldn't get it to work. The pool was pretty small, but sufficient for the place. It took us a little time to get pool towels, but we may have just caught them at a busy time.

Had to change our travel plans last minute. Holiday Inn was able to accommodate my whole family. The hotel was very clean and well taken care of. The hours for breakfast were great! 4:30-9:30. The hours at the gym were very user friendly. The heated indoor pool and spa were well maintained. My only complaint aboutit was the lack of pool towels. There were fresh baked cookies nightly by the front desk. A nice touch. The location was great! Close to beaches and fun things to do. There was breakfast included that I thought was decent. Got a little tired of having the same thing every day, but it was do able. I'd like to see them change it up a bit. Overall a great place to stay! I will definitely be back!
