Hard to rate- refurbishing
Posted Jul 28, 2016
The Howard Johnson Express Arcata is probably a pretty good hotel. The room was certainly nice and comfortable and fairly quiet, despite little kids running up and down the hall. During my stay in July 2016, the hotel was renovating the workout room and painting. Therefore, the hotel lobby was a bit of a mess. The staff was ok. I found that the front desk was often completely empty- no one around. The morning breakfast was super crowded and it appeared some of the local homeless took advantage of the food.
