Nice hotel close to the university

Staff was extremely helpful, especially Natalie. We arrived early after a long 12 hour drive and called to try to get an early check in. Assuring us that it wouldn't take long, Natalie was very understanding and accommodating. She had us come in and grab a bite to eat while they prepared our room. Hotel was nice, clean and comfortable. Full Breakfast was a plus. No need to go anywhere else in the morning unless you wanted. I'll be staying here every time I come back to the area.

Best Hotel in Arcata

Pros: The pool and breakfast every morning.
Cons: It met all my needs.
Great service all the way around, friendly staff, great coffee and breakfast, and the pool was a nice touch. The hot tub actually worked, unlike most places I've been. The rooms were spacious can clean, and it's location is perfect with a plaza next door that has everything you could every need. And Highway 101 is less than a half mile down the road. If you need a homebase while visiting the Redwood Forest this is the place.

Nicest hotel on the block, but Found ants

3 out of 5
Posted Jul 25, 2016
I booked a room for $230 and upon check in discovered ants in the room. Hotel staff rude or incompetent, I noticed the operator/front desk not at the desk most of the time (evening and early morning). When I asked about switching rooms due to the ants, the first thing operator asked was if I left food in the room. I had just checked in, and didn't even put down my stuff yet. If it wasn't for the ants/ cleanliness issues, this hotel is the best on the block and has okay breakfast, microwave, fridge and enough amenities for a good stay.

A little out of town. Worth it

Very happy with this hotel. Just a couple of minutes to cool downtown Arcata and Humboldt State University, and Arcata Community Forest, a must see. A pleasant 45 minute drive from Fern Valley and beautiful scenery up 101.

Nice hotel

Room was standard Hampton Inn (in a good way). They wouldn't let give us a rollaway bed so we had to jam into the 2 queens that were really full beds. The breakfast was excellent.

Pros: Service Excellent. Nice rooms. nicest in that town.
Location: Beautiful location In Redwoods. Beaches, Ocean, Hiking, Arcata nice small town with good restaurants and shops.
Service from Expedia failed us with this reservation. Initial reservation with errors. When made changes were requested via phone call to customer service, reservation not made. Discovered when arrived at check-in at Hampton Inn, Arcata. No other rooms available on a very busy weekend. Young women was very helpful and professional assisting us to locate another room in different town. Luckily a last minute cancellation allowed us to stay at Hampton Inn. We were informed by staff at Hampton Inn that Expedia has been difficult to work with on numerous occasions. We have never had a reservation failed at any other time in over 30 years of travel. We will no longer use Expedia's services as prices are not less and service is questionable. We cannot rely on Expedia.
