So I guess with COVID still having effects on us all, the breakfast was a joke which sucked since we were traveling with a teen baseball team. Not enough food at all. We had no toilet paper, our friends toilet leaked…a lot. But it is clean enough and everyone was friendly and helpful. Arcata is a hole but if you have to go…I guess this is the way to go

It is our goal to impress you and exceed your expectations with every visit, and it is disheartening to learn that we did not fulfill this ambition during your recent visit. Please do not hesitate to let us know if we could of any help.

Very basic hotel. Customer service was lacking. The guy working day shift was pleasant but the guy working nights (with the nose bridge piercing) didn’t say a word. The power went out in Arcata at 6pm and by morning breakfast, staff still had no updates for guests. No efforts to provide breakfast (which was included in price). There is a single bathroom in the lobby, but no toilet paper. The same guy that ran the front desk and managed the morning buffet eventually added toilet paper to the bathroom.

Pros: good location. I like that the windows open and they have a pool.
Location: Near Arcata, the ocean, and the redwood trees
we left a jacket and they called us right away to get it back to us.

Howard Johnson in Arcata was surprisingly nice!

Pros: Cleanliness, breakfast, swimming pool, mini-gym, and frig and microwave in room.
Cons: I've never liked carpet in a bedroom...it can't be removed and cleaned. Decorative tile would be nice.
Location: The hotel is about 5 minutes from downtown Arcata (great shopping), and about 20 minutes from the Eureka Zoo, Patricks Point and Trinidad.
First of all, I am very picky when it comes to cleanliness and bedding...and our room was clean and tidy when we arrived. After removing the bedspread, which we always do in hotel rooms, we discovered the sheets were so clean they had a crisp feel to them. The mattresses were firm yet comfortable...my back actually felt better when I woke after sleeping on the HJ mattress. We were given a code for internet access and it worked. Cable was okay, no better or worse than other hotels. We didn't notice any highway noise from the direction of 101...good. The complimentary self-serve breakfast had a good selection. Waffles, fruit, bagels and other goodies. Next time, however, we'll reserve a room on the second floor so we can feel safe leaving the window open all night, and we'll remember to bring running shoes for the treadmill and a swimsuit for the swimming pool. All in all, a good experience.

Nice selection of breakfast items

Breakfast was great. Scrambled eggs, sausage, waffle maker, several cereals, several coffees, several teas, more than one juice, couple of fruits, lots of breads and bagels. We ate at 8:00 and there was plenty of food.

This is a perfectly acceptable hotel.

Pros: The staff.
Cons: Better chairs in the rooms! Those chairs are so uncomfortable!
This property is perfectly acceptable. It is near gas stations, groceries, fast food, and a sit-down mexican restaurant. It is clean enough and reasonably priced. The staff is excellent!

Decent hotel for the money

We were on a budget and this hotel helped keep us on it. My boys enjoyed the indoor pool. There was construction going on but nothing that bothered us. The staff was nice and helpful. The only con was that we didn't get to use the continental breakfast because it was way to busy. There was only one waffle maker and it took 3 minutes a waffle, when you have 5 people in front of you waiting that can take awhile so we ended up having to eat out. But overall it was fine. Internet was slow, just FYI

okay for a night

Cons: Poor breakfast
Its okay. As it had no elevator I asked if i could have a first floor not wanting to trudge my suitcase with 2& weeks of clothes up the long staircase. They charged extra. For the first floor. Same took type. Kind of cheesy.

Excellent quality

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Poor breakfast
Check was fast and easy. Plenty of free parking. Room was very nicely appointed. Large bathroom. Breakfast room was very small and typically crowded with only the minimal of offerings. Overall a very good motel.
