I made a reservation online for the Holiday Inn, deciding to give it a try after many years of staying at other locations in Arcata and Eureka. I am so glad I made the switch!

Late night arrival. Greeted by very friendly and helpful staff! Rooms were clean and inviting. Breakfast was sparse but we were in a rush and went to a local restaurant. Check out was quick and easy and we were greeted by the manager. We will be back!!

Clean ,handy access right off Highway 101 just north of Arcata. Staff very pleasant upon arrival. Room clean and you would never know it is very near Eureka-Arcata airport. Located in a business park. adjacent to the airport and just a short jaunt into McKinleyville, which has all the necessary services.

We enjoyed a night and complementary breakfast at the Holiday Inn of McKinleyville. The whole hotel design was warm and friendly. I was quite surprised when the desk clerk told me the hotel was 19 years old, because I thought it was about a year at most. The room was spacious and well equipped. Being adjacent to the small airport... More

As we were making our way up along the coast we decided to stay here based on the reviews and the location to 101. We enjoyed our stay and the breakfast in the morning. The rooms were clean and the hotel in general was quiet even though there were a lot of people staying there.

After traveling all day, this was a great stop. Not too far out of Arcata, where we had a great dinner, and even though it was by an airport- you wouldn't even know it.

It's a nice place, got very good rate thru Priceline. They serve breakfast from 4 AM! May be due to the airport close by. Location is absolute convenient to Redwood National Park, close to the Pacific Ocean.
