We spent 3 nights at this Bestwestern in Arcata over Thanksgiving break while visiting Redwoods National Park. The counter staff were always helpful and friendly and there was free coffee or hotwater for teas all day in the lobby and cookies in the evenings. Check-in was a breeze, and our room came with 2 Queen-sized beds, a flatscreen TV, small... More

Terrific place. We were happy with everything. The landscaping is gorgeous. It's obvious the gardner cares about each and every plant. Most of the plants have identification signs and it's fun to just walk around and look at everything. I was really impressed with the beautiful display of plants and considering we stayed in late November, that's something. I would... More

We were pleasantly surprised by our very nice room, friendly front desk & clean grounds for walking the dogs. We checked in & had a couple of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies & a biscuit for the dog. The room was clean & the bed very comfortable, there was a cigarette burn in the chair but that was the only... More

This is the first time staying at the Best Western Arcata, CA. The room was clean and very comfortable. The room had a desk and chair, recliner chair and a table and two chairs so I was able to sit comfortably anywhere. I also appreciated that the person servicing the room left a couple packets of coffee. The continental breakfast... More

The hotel itself is nice, at bit dated. We got the whirlpool room, and the whirlpool is hardly big enough for one person. The walls in this hotel are tissue paper thin. There was a party going on in 4 or 5 rooms around us until 445 am. There were homeless people just about every where. If you are going... More

I called the Arcata hotel to make reservations, and the staff was very friendly and helpful making a reservation for a dog friendly room near the pet walk area. Check in was easy, again with friendly, helpful staff and dog treats to welcome my dog! The room was clean with everything I needed including microwave and small refrigerator. There is... More

We pulled in after 9pm and were thankful to get a room. It was nice being able to park right outside our unit. Helpful staff. The breakfast options weren't as plentiful as other Best Westerns we'd stayed at. Over all, a good experience.

Totally recommend this hotel. Staff was friendly, room was clean, and one of the best breakfast experiences I've had in my years of traveling. Several different bagels and coffee selections, as well as a nice waffle maker. Plenty of fruit, cereals, and juices. Staff was attentive and ready to replace any items that were running out. The check-in process was... More

Lots of good lighting which you don't find in a lot of motels today. The staff were friendly, helpful and willing to help with any problems if needed., We... More

As we have to come to expect from the Best Western Brand, Arcata,CA BW clearly a superior motel stay. Keep up the good work and we will always be coming back! This property clearly had a superior management staff as well as those we came in contact with in the housekeeping and front desk staffs. Clearly a job well done.
