Explore the beauty of California when selecting this Arcata hotel. A great location, friendly service, and plenty of perks are what keep guests coming back. This Arcata hotel is close to the Redwood Forest and the beaches. Spend a day among the grand beauties or frolicking on the rolling sand. We're pet-friendly, so if Fido wants to come along, he's more than welcome. After all, every family needs their fur baby along for hiking, kayaking and fishing expeditions. Humboldt State University is also in the neighborhood, and our Arcata hotel is happy to host visiting professors and families touring the campus. Being close to the university is just one of the perks here. Our heated indoor/outdoor pool is open year-round so swimming is always an option. The National Redwood Parks provide the perfect background for an idyllic vacation. Guests come to check out the Avenue of the Giants and Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park where Return of the Jedi was filmed. Film buffs are thrilled to visit Prairie Creek Redwood State Park where scenes from Jurassic Park were filmed. However, gastro pros are delighted with the Oyster Festival where seriously fresh seafood is dished up. When traveling on business, rest assured that you'll have all of the comforts of home. This Arcata hotel is proud to host employees of Sun Valley Floral Farm, Mad River Hospital and Historic Arcata Plaza. After clocking out, why not take a look at the Arcata Marsh, New Humboldt Bay Wildlife Center, or Natural History Museum? But first, enjoy our free deluxe continental breakfast with biscuits and gravy, waffles, cereals and more. There are seven marathons throughout the year and no better place to find your stride. Jazz festivals, Art Arcata, Arts Alive, Farmers Markets and Van Duzer Theatre are just a taste of the local attractions. This Arcata hotel is centrally located to numerous casinos for guests who want to flirt with Lady Luck. Book a quaint, cozy room at BEST WESTERN Arcata Inn

Weekend overnighter

The breakfast was better than expected. The bed was comfortable and the room seemed clean. I was a little disappointed by the aloof staff. Also the bathroom was a little funky. We only stayed one night. I will stay again but try harder for a better rate next time.

very comfortable place for the money

I was visitng my daughter for the week in Arcata and this place was perfect. Room was spacious, breakfast good, on site laundry, close to highway for hiking trips, hot tub so-so, pool included too but I didn't use it, access to off site fitness facility-very nice if you don't mind driving a few miles and pet friendly. Would definately return.

Older hotel with good updating efforts.

Room very clean with nice bedding and towels. Convenient to the freeway for quick access for minimal travel delay. Breakfast room a bit small for the number of rooms. Limited dining options near by. Staff friendly and helpful.

Room was clean and comfy. I didn't care for the pillows as they were totally mushy. The place has an indoor hot tub and a grill outside. It is right off the 101 so there was some road noise.

Clean comfortable stay for family visiting students

Though it appears to have been freshly retouched/painted the outside of the hotel is underwhelming on a row of hotels. We walked in after a long 12 hour drive and the staff greeted us with a smile an a hello as we walked in the door. Checking in was easy and very quick even though it appears that one of the staff members was being trained. Parking was easy. It also appears to be a very animal friendly hotel. The room itself was a surprise, it appears to have been recently renovated and was spacious and very clean. The bathroom was immaculate filled with shampoos and conditioners ready for ample use, no tiny bottles here. The TV had tons of channels for our use. We were traveling with three young kids so we made great use of the indoor pool and spa as well as a grass area where the kids threw a ball around. The staff was very sweet a let us have fresh baked cookies each night for our troup. The breakfast is great; freshly stocked and tidy. All of the continental stuff as well as fresh baked waffles you DIY string cheese, yogurt and hard boiled eggs though no other choices for eggs. With everything tasting so great we found the biscuits and gravey a little disappointing. This spot is also within walking distance to a grocery store and several dinner stops. We stayed for three nights and were very happy wig our stay. The hotel is one exit north from Humboldt University which suites our needs wonderfully. The price was reasonable, and considering everything you get with the hotel it was wonderful. We were curious how the other hotels on the street would fair as some bosted 60 a night. And there was one hotel at the end of the block that appeared to possibly be a four star hotel. It also does appear to be a main stopping ground for truckers to refuel though non come into the hotel an the hotel feels secluded. I feel this is an accurate picture for a guest who is coming from out of town, your needs may be different but this suited us very well. Overall we were happy with our stay and would consider it again in the future.

Your average motel experience

Chose Best Western as a base for trips to the Redwoods and the truly beautiful coastline north of Arcata. The rooms were very clean and well maintained, but also quite dark. Noise from the freeway was acceptable - but I still don't get it why even three star motels in the US don't have soundproof windows and doors. Continental breakfast was ok, but unfortunately they didn't have any fresh fruits or vegetables. Overall a good exprience but since Super 8 and Motel 6 are right next to the Best Western I might opt for them the next time.

Humbolt Brew in Downtown Arcata has some great beers on tap and they are also reasonably priced. Good pub food too.
