Cost effective

The staff are nice and the room is adequate. Being just off the freeway, the noise is no too bad.

Super Eight-Arcata

Friendly and helpful staff. Room was clean and had all amenities. Location was great. First night stay heading North was on first floor. My room was across from the lobby and too much noise. On return trip requested upstairs room and it was very quiet. Also like the room configuration much better.

Had problems checking in because of online glitch. Manager was a total jerk. But, amazing desk clerk, Emmilie was calm & kind! Stayed in spite of the manager. Didn't see him the rest of the stay. Room was comfortable & clean. Breakfast was great. Stayed for 3 nights & enjoyed our stay. Super convenient location. I was given a better price by the hotel than I received on travel site

A Total DUMP

Seriously, I don't have ridiculously high standards but this place was a complete dump. I questioned my safety and tried to avoid touching most things with my hands. The linens seemed clean so I stuck with those. Ewww. Never again.

Serves to keep you out of the reain

The motel itself was absolutely generic. Walls fairly thin with no frills or amenities worth mentioning. The staff was very nice though and deserves a mention for their hospitality and willingness to help out. The breakfast was really desirable with no American breakfast offered. The front counter personal was also very nice and helpful. It was the employees who made the stay at all a memorable experience. I would use motel 8 again if necessary, but I would ask my wife to include me next time in the research and booking process.

Enjoyed our stay in Arcata at the Super 8.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and had no negative smell. The room was a bit warm for me so I turned on the AC, I couldn't get it lower than 75 degrees... so I opened the window to the 45 degree outside temperature. That worked fine. I did notice a strong smell of marijuana in the hallway on one trip to the ice machine on the 2nd day. There were a lot of young travelers (backpacks, dogs, sleeping bags) in the area. The accepted our dog with no problem. My bed was comfortable and I slept well. My son said his bed was a bit too firm but he slept well the 2nd night. Overall, I would recommend the Super 8.
