Bed Terribly Uncomfortable

Posted Sep 15, 2017
Pros: Staff who greeted me at check in
Cons: Upgrade old super squeaky beds
Location: Location is nice. Close to university, the beach and not far from the plaza
On arrival the front desk staff were very attentive. The hotel overall is clean. It was the bed that ruined the stay. When leaving the hotel went into the lobby and no one could be found to assist with a check out question. I appreciate the pet friendly policy but other than that, I most likely will not be coming back

Nice hotel close to Arcata, Eureka and the beaches

Posted Aug 28, 2017
Pros: The hotel was centrally located for the events and places we wanted to visit.
Cons: The hotel was full, so parking was an issue when we returned after 11pm on two nights.
Location: Great location for eating and site seeing.
All of the staff were nice and helpful. One young gentleman was above and beyond when it came to being helpful, polite, and giving service with a smile and great attitude. I couldn't believe how he handled the large crowd at breakfast. It was a zoo with children, seniors and everything in between. Obviously with so many people we had a few gripers. He handled everyone with a great attitude... including the rude. I wish I had his name, but can't remember what it was. He was medium height, light hair color, beard and mustache and wore black glasses. You need to keep this man. He is a great asset to your business.

Budget friendly and very clean!

Posted Aug 25, 2017
Pros: The breakfast and was reasonably priced. ;-)
Cons: Safety in the parking lot as there were several very sketchy characters rolling the room's desk chair through the parking lot. Just a suggestion.
Great budget friendly option and the staff was very thoughtful. :-)

Dear Anonymous, Thank you for taking time to write a review for our hotel!

We have incorporated much of the feedback from guests like you into our latest remodel, a plan of action that has kept us ranking very high against our competitors! A recent renovation begs me to question to call our property "old and run down" - We pride ourselves not only on our friendly staff, but our modern, clean rooms that we go through great lengths to upkeep. Perhaps you mistook us with another property? We hope to see you here again soon so that we can once more prove that we are committed to giving you clean, comfortable rooms!

overpriced for what we received

Posted Aug 19, 2017
Pros: nothing
Cons: new beds and rid the place of the awful smell
Location: I'm sure there are plenty of things to do nearby we were dropping our daughter off at HSU.
worst bed I ever slept in ever and the smell of the room was nauseating even the pillows stunk.

Nice Days Inn, Minus the Transients.

Posted Aug 19, 2017
Pros: Clean, modern, good staff.
Cons: NA
Location: Redwood National and State Parks. Good Mexican food.
The Days Inn in Arcata is quite nice. The room was spacious and everything was new in the room. The bed was quite comfortable. The whole situation with the hotel was great, except the fact that the whole area outside the hotel complex is full of transients. I don't know if this just endemic to the area or if this is a temporary problem. Anyway, no one bothered me after I was on site, but I made sure I brought all of my valuables into the hotel room with me to be sure.
