Hotel and staff are excellent - but the area....

Posted Oct 26, 2016
Location: Surrounding area is a real concern - local business owners need to pull together and get the community cleaned up.
The hotel and staff, cleanliness etc is all very good to excellent. Honestly though I would not recommend anyone to go to this area. Perhaps it is localized, we did not explore enough to know. We drove in and went to the grocery store across the road before check-in. A customer in the store and a number of people in the carpark could only be described as "out of it". You can decide on why this might be. Did not feel safe outside the hotel grounds at all.

Cheap and convenient.

Posted Sep 10, 2016
Pros: Reasonable price.
Cons: Almost everything
Location: Convenient to Arcada and beaches and parks in the area.
Clerk was friendly and sought to give me the best room for my stay (upgraded to a larger room than I booked). Unfortunately the maid service was spotty and didn't clean my room one day. Towels and soaps were not very high quality. The breakfast area was extremely crowded and didn't have many choices. Parking spaces were tight and crowded - found someone had scraped their side mirror on my car while backing out.

University visit!

Posted Aug 22, 2016
It was nice, clean, and friendly. We had a newly remodeled room. Bed were good, not great. We paid $150 a night,, normally much less. Must have been due to the University starting that weekend I guess. Other guests did not look like they went to college. Just saying. Love the redwoods and University is beautiful.

We stayed here for part of our trip and wish we hadn't if we'd known better. The hotel is close to several others at a short driving distance from HSU campus and downtown Arcata. We stayed at the Motel 6 right next door to this one which was less than half the price of this one and pretty similar in what they offered. We actually thought that for the price it would have been better to stay at Motel 6. Even their pool was better. The only noticeable difference was that the room was bigger at the Days Inn. We got late to the place and weren't able to check in for a while because there was some problem with their computers. When we finally went to our room we found that there was someone in there! We went back to reception who were clueless as to why there was someone in our room because the room was supposed to be empty. We had to wait again to get another room. We finally made it to bed hoping to get a good sleep. Unfortunately the beds offer no support/comfort and the pillows are just giant wads of polyester. if you want to sleep in make sure to request a do not disturb sign, we couldn't find one in the room and sure enough housekeeping will come knocking. After the hassle from the night before and poor sleep we decided we wouldn't stay here anymore and checked out. The clerk told us that we might get a partial refund but the manager wasn't there and she couldn't do anything about it. Based on our experience there I doubt they'll come through and give me some money back.

Nice inexpensive hotel

Posted Jul 24, 2016
Inexpensive hotel that appears recently renovated. Very friendly staff that directed us to several options for restaurants within walking distance. Jacuzzi was out of order, but we were able to use the neighbor hotels no problem.

Glad it was only one night

Posted Jul 22, 2016 on Hotels
The hotel was in an ok and quiet neighborhood. Looks a bit run down from outside, but in was ok. They have smoking rooms under and next to non smoking so the first non smoking room we were given smelled horrible. The second was better. The pool was freezing and hot tub didn't work so we went across the street to another hotel's pool and their hot tub was also not working. Fine for one night, but wouldn't recommend until they renovate and get rid of smoking rooms.
