“Very Good Value-Large Rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Quiet, clean, modern, and enjoyed the very large rooms. Free breakfast and overall very good value. No airport noise; in a serene area where you can take a walk. Varied types of pillows, comfortable mattress. An easy place to stay.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Staff was friendly on check in but didn't mention that our room was at the other end of the building. We usually ask but forgot to this time leading us to walk through a maze upstairs to find our room. The bed as usual with our HI stays was wonderful and the pillow menu much appreciated. The breakfast was a wonderful selection although the pancake machine was broken. The cell phone reception is poor but with the Wifi available our phones connected that way to our network. We love our stays at HI and will likely be back for our next Northern California adventure.

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 hope you give us a chance in the future to show you how great our hotel is.

Sincerely,

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.
