We had traveled all day through on and off bad weather. When we finally arrived in Arcata, it was really raining and was very dark. The staff recommended a great restaurant for dinner and gave us very good directions, which were much needed in the bad weather. When we came back into the lobby, we discussed our travel for the...

We have stayed at the Best Western Arcata Inn whenever in the Humboldt County area for the past 16 years. Obviously, we are happy with the motel and its staff. The staff remains fairly constant, and it is always nice to enter the door and have whoever is at the desk say" Welcome back." The rooms are always neat and... More

A very pleasant stay in Arcata over the Christmas Holiday. Having the indoor hot tub directly across from the guest room was quite nice during cold, rainy weather. Staff was extremely helpful and cooperative. I will definitely stay there again when I return to visit family in the area.

The Arcata Inn is our idea of a perfect hotel for a road trip. The property is very well maintained, the staff are always cheerful and helpful and the rooms are comfortable. There are some very interesting things to visit in the Arcata area and even though the Arcata Inn isn't right in the middle of town it is very... More

Positives: Laundry service, pool, and hot tub in hotel. Close by car to tourist sites. Hotel is well maintained and staff is friendly and helpful. Negatives: Immediate neighborhood is safe but charmless.

We enjoyed staying at the best Western, Arcata. The service was great from check-in to the cleaning staff. We really appreciate the fact that they allow dogs. They also have an area for them behind the hotel which is great.

We were expecting a little more since it was rated so highly on Tripadvisor. It was fine. Basic place but nothing special. The bathroom floor was a little sketchy to me so I threw down a towel. It was mostly quiet tho we could hear the person next door watching the news in the morning. They do have wifi but... More

I have stayed here many times over the last seven years. I often stay here when I am visiting Humboldt State University. The motel really isn't a destination itself, however if you have a family and need a place to stop and relax for a day on a long trip it will serve, and children will enjoy the pool. There... More
