Last minute booking we stopped at Arcata to get some sleep. The place was quiet but it needs some love. Beds were full size, sheets and pillowcases stained. The floors were not clean, sticky and the room smelled like bleach. The tv screen was cracked and when we reported the attendant said that she didn’t know about it. Next day when checking out it was a bit of a deal because the attendant didn’t make a note about it and no one knew anything. So I have to wait to make sure I wasn’t going to be changed for and old broken tv.

Had to wait an hour to register with only 2 people in front of us. First room they gave us was not even cleaned. 2nd room bathroom was not cleaned and the floor was sticky and un cleaned. We will never stay at a red roof ever again. Out side the building was covered with trash pet poop all over the place. So uncomfortable and stress full. Not some place you want to stay after a long day of traveling.

Noisy - could hear tv from another room. Toilet paper dispenser broken, several scratches on wall in different areas of room, door frame broken as if someone had broken in, drapes were broken, etc. Bathroom did look freshly painted and caulked. The door to the outside from hallway was also broken. Someone was smoking pot inside their room. We could smell it in our room upstairs. It is supposed to be non-smoking!
