Great value!

I'm not sure what people are expecting from a very inexpensive hotel near awesome spots in Northern... See full review

Disappointing

Convenient location. The barking dog was extremely annoying. The bed was comfortable & clean. Needed 3 new key cards in 4 nights.

Weekend Redwoods Trip

Overall, we had a very positive experience here. It is right across the street from a grocery store, gas station, and food. Also very close to the beach and just a short drive from the Redwoods. Our non smoking room smelled slightly like old cigarettes, but it wasn't overwhelming. Great location, helpful staff, fair price, and a quiet hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

We won't go back!

Overall the hotel seemed unkempt and operating at a minimum level. Grounds needed to be cleaned up, pool wasn't appealing, and the continental breakfast was not worth eating--terrible food and drinks including sour milk. No hot water for showers one morning. The best thing I can say about it is that they allow pets!

We got upgraded to better room. Bed was comfy, big TV, breakfast was cereal, doughnut and boiled eggs, coffee, OJ, apple juice. That's it. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Tony's is open 24 hr. Excellent diner food. Pete's Joint at The Plaza was great for lunch.

Under Construction

I was very disappointed. The hotel was in the midst of construction. The hallway was torn up, carpet dirty, and it smelled of a peculiar odor. The outside doors had to be propped open.

Way too pricey for a hotel under remodeling

Unfortunately, the corporate owner decided it was time to totally gut and refurbish the hotel, right when demand was high for local university graduation and freshman exiting the dorms. A lot of families were in town, rooms were scarce and prices hiked up accordingly. The laundry room had been gutted, leaving water seeping out into and standing in corridors, and new management was forced to use laundromat down the street, Carpets had been ripped up, so debris from this and bare exposed nail strips were everywhere. In many places the floors were stripped and left as bare concrete or carpet pad. What carpet was left was filthy (good thing they are replacing!). I have stayed in hotels under construction previously, and it has been handled nicely with only part of the hotel blocked off with plastic sheeting to cause minimal disturbance. This experience was more like walking through a war zone to try to reach safety of the room. There was no warning about this situation upon making the reservation. And the price was absolutely way too high for these conditions I had stayed the previous night in the wine country in a 4 star at half the price. My advice is to wait a while for the situation to clear up, or at least ask about it before booking.

Affordable and clean

The Red Roof Inn is very nice and clean and the price was very affordable. It is a drive from downtown Arcata which was harder for us but I felt comfortable there. The staff was kind and the lobby is beautiful.

Affordable, nothing more

Carpets not vacuumed, lacking a towel, out of Kleenex and coffee. No remote, and when one was delivered it didn't work. Keys didn't open side door, so had to walk around every time. Staff was friendly but clueless. Maybe the pool was nice, but didn't swim.

Horrible hotel

It was a nightmare the place was under staffed there where dogs running all over unleashed accompanied by barefooted cannibis peddlers . After the first night I left and checked in to a better & cleaner place luckily a few blocks down

Good enough for quick sleep over.

Clean enough. Good for times when you cannot plan in advance. I had to change my original reservations in Crescent City to Arcata on a day's notice. On a Friday night at the Pacific Coast, that is hard to do. Also, I did not have computer access but was able to reserve another room easily through my travel agent.
