The room had ants. The heater didn't work. Th hot water was reversed. My husband made us leave at 5 in the morning because of these conditions. When we complained at the front desk the person behind the counter said he could not give us a discount because I booked it online. It was one of the worst BW I have ever stayed at.

Unfortunately lady at the front desk couldn't find our reservation due to some internal error and I had to call Travelocity to confirm our booking (took them an hour to solve), very disappointing.

Overnight stay on the way home

Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Just stayed overnight but close to strip mall.
Always get consistently good service at Best Westerns. Not sure I will bother researching any other motels in the future. Dog treats a nice touch & lovely dog area. The beds are consistently good. This was the third Best Western stay on our trip. Breakfast was fresh & plentiful.

OK STAY

Pros: Price was reasonable. Breakfast was good.
No real issues. The hotel is a little older and it shows some. Breakfast was a little better than I expected.

No elevator to 2nd floor.

Pros: This hotel is very convenient to the airport, and convenient gas stations for rental car fill-up.
Location: Close to Arcata Plaza and lovely fruits and vegetables at the Farmers Market on Saturday. Interesting Eureka Books in Old Town Eureka.
They have a very friendly staff, but had to ask for a hair dryer, which was missing from my room. They assigned me a 2nd floor room, but with a 30 pound bag, I had no desire to lug it up and down stairs. They found me a room on the first floor. The free breakfast was suitable, but during a busy time, not enough tables and chairs to enjoy breakfast. My bed squeaked badly when getting into bed, but OK after lying flat.

Excellent Value

Pros: All new decorated rooms with new carpet. Friendly and courteous staff.
Cons: We cannot think of anything that need improvement.
Location: The hotel's location in Arcata, CA is close to all of the north state's (Northern California) towns, ocean, and beautiful Redwood forests.
My wife and I were very impressed during our stay at the Best Western Arcata Inn. The room looked great, and we learned that they had been remodeled, and the carpet was all new. The breakfast in the morning was more than expected, and the staff was very nice thought out our stay. All and all we felt that the hotel was an excellent value, and would gladly stay there again on our next trip to Arcata, CA.

Pros: The room was clean and quiet, and the hotel staff were very friendly and courteous.
Cons: The breakfast buffet could be improved by adding more tables and by arranging the food items in a more logical sequence. The food itself was fine.
Spend one night trying to escape the heat from the interior of Oregon.
