The Howard Johnson's was fine for a short stay, lacks character but it's a chain. . .so what. It's a newer hotel, which I don't really like. . .but it was a good location for my weekend getaway trip. Check in and out were both smooth. . .hotel employees very friendly and nice. The room was large, great refrigerator, nice roomy bathroom, comfortable bed. . . not really a homey atmosphere, furnishings a bit on the cheap end but hey. . .I paid a good price for the room. It's about as good as you'll get in Arcata unless you go up a step to the Hampton, which is next door. . .fine place for a couple nights.

I've stayed here a few times before and returned after retrying another establishment on Valley West Boulevard. The Holiday Inn Express offers a very good breakfast to guests, now including scrambled eggs, sausage links, and tater tots. The free Wi-Fi service was working at nearly 8 megabits per second. The staff is very nice and conscientious about service.

Kids were running up and down the hallway at all hours of the day and night. That is to be expected at a family friendly hotel to a certain degree but when my husband finally called the front desk to ask them to please do something about the noise, the response from hotel staff was that "this is only the first time you are calling to complain". I'm not sure how many times we were required to call the front desk before they noticed the unruly kids and their inconsiderate parents that were on the first floor just around the corner from the front desk!! I guess this is the kind of hotel that people with no manners or common courtesy frequent. Next time we are in Arcata we will be sure to book early enough to stay somewhere else.

I'd stay at this hotel again and I would recommend it to my family and friends who are driving through the Redwoods - the hotel feels like a new construction so everything is pristine - there are so many eating places around it too that are literally walking distance - the only negative I can think of is that it's next to another hotel that when I opened my curtain to see the view I was looking into someone else's room.

There was no Choclate,The coffee ran out, when asked if they could make more, they said they would, but never did. Things that were advertised for breakfast was not there. When asked them about it they just shruged, and did nothing. Plus they were rude about it.

The place is clean and if that is what you are after, then book. The view is nonexistent, our view were are neighbors in the hotel next door. The pool is small and clean, but a little bit grungy. A very small work out room and coined op laundry next to work out room and thats that. The breakfast is small, with very limited seating...choice of a do it yourself waffle station (a bit dirty after a few uses) cold cereal, bagels and bananas. Coffee, oj and milk round out the rest of breakfast choices, it nothing exciting. Its close to the freeway, and the area itself is a short drive, not in walking distance to the Arcata plaza and around the hotel is homeless population and open drug use.

Do not book this hotel if you might have to change your itinerary. They will NOT budge on refunding. Do not book this hotel if you expect protein to be part of your breakfast. All they offer is cold cereal, waffles, bagels and toast. Do not book this hotel if you cannot stand the sound of squeaking plastic on your mattress. Do not book this hotel if you expect a friendly staff. They will intentionally turn away so they don't have to greet you. Never once did they smile at me and say hello. This was really sad. I wanted to go next door to the Hampton Inn where they always give good service.

It was ok, we had trouble finding the hotel as there was 2 different address that it was located on. The lobby was Ok, room didn't feel welcomed, it felt it needed more cleaning, there was crack and dirt in the bathroom, broken lamp shade, crack wall, dirty carpet and curtains. We didn't sleep well because it didn't feel comfortable. It's not a place for getaway. It's for overnight drop in.breakfast was not clean or stocked. Employees brought their children to work and I thought We paid to stay and eat but instead employees children were taking food from the food bar and running around while we waited for them to move, they sat at the clean tables so we had to clean off one dirty table to sit at. On last day, my husband woke up to children yelling in the hallway when we had planned on sleeping in. We didn't stay for breakfast because the children employees were running in the hallway and lobby. We checked out early.

it was nice, however disappointing when it came to the "free" breakfast. I would suggest a bit more room for breakfast. We had to eat in the lobby twice and , yes it's not a restaurant, but it should also be maintained by someone. Food was not monitored, and thus was always short of something.

The room was spacious for the rate paid. The room was clean and the personal at the hotel were polite and helpful. I have traveled several times to Arcata and I found this hotel to be best so far.
