Make the long drive from So Cal and was pleasantly surprised by the modern look and feel to the room. The bed was comfortable and we were able to get the room to the right temperature with ease.

It was a decent place for what we needed.

We were on vacation and because we weren't in the room much the size didn't matter. The place was immaculately clean!! Fresh paint. Remodeled bathroom. Really nice so again the room being small. The only thing I would have changed was there was not a do not disturb sign. Instead a call was placed to the room about 8 am asking if I wanted room sercice. By day three the calls were an annoyance since I was woke each time. I've stayed at alot of hotels and this was the cleanest room I've ever been in. The kids used the pool and loved it!. Thanks for leaving the light on Motel 6

Place to lay your head

We booked this motel because we were moving our daughter into Humboldt State University. The location was close to the university. Our first impression was fantastic as Ryan, who checked us in, was very friendly and went above and beyond to help us, which was not expected. We choose this motel for the price because we were not going to be doing much more than showering and sleeping in the room. The room was very basic and could use some updating, but it was very clean and the beds were comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

Get what you pay for!

Towels like sand paper, cob webs in the room, AC vents open to freeway noise, no shampoo... What else can I say? Rent must be high to charge these prices and get just a bed and TV. Oh yeah, internet is $2 something. One night is all I would tolerate.

Very close to HSU north campus, but you have better choices for just a few more bucks.

Dropping off my daughter at school

Everything was good. The hotel was right around the corner of the school. Near food restaurants. My wife and I enjoy going to casinos and the Blue Lake Casino was not far. Overall, it was a great choice.

Get What You Pay For

This was our first visit to a Motel 6, and one of the few times I've ever been to a budget motel. Poster child of "you get what you pay for." The Good: Clean room, no rowdy people, no bugs, no smoking in the room, lots of hot water and good volume. The Bad: $90 per night in the sticks (2X normal rate) because of graduation weekend and all the other hotels sell out, no shampoo or cream rinse, tiny bath towels, tiny bar soap, 25 year old TV, clientele smoked like mad all over the property (except in the rooms, thank God), no cereal or bagels in the morning, odd requirement of everyone needing to show ID (are they trying to keep the hookers out?).

Great Place to stay in Arcata

This hotel is in the midst of hotel row (lots of others around), but staff here made it great. Very attentive and friendly.

Fast food nearby as well as grocery store (Rays) made this an ideal stop over location.
