This was by far the worst hotel experience I have had in a while. The First room had dirty sheets so we asked for another room. The second room had stained sheets and ripped bedding. The internet was non existent and we were just a little ways from where the router was supposed to be. My son left a clean spot on the AC unit when he touched it because of the dust. We would have stayed somewhere else but unfortunately it was the only place we could get at a price we could afford since the other hotels in the area with vacancies were twice the price. I was there for my fathers funeral so it just made it worse. The hotel also had signs posted at every entrance saying face masks were required inside yet nobody seemed to mind except for my family and a couple others. It was ridiculous. This place needs a serious makeover. I will pass on staying there in the future.

I have been coming to this property when my route takes me to Arcata / Humboldt area. It is tolerable and clean but today while I checked in the door In my was ajar. Went downstairs to tell the front desk about the issue. We went upstairs to check and there was issue with the door lock ( won’t close ) requested a different room and was given the run around about the price of the only other room they have available. I am staying here on company dime and it is not an issue to pay EXTRA but the principle of making me pay extra for something that is their fault is not acceptable I was made to wait for the manager and after waiting for awhile , I decided not to stay and cancel said reservation. The front desk was very unprofessional, borderline rude and was rolling his eyes the whole time . I will never stay here again

The registration process was quick and easy, the staff was friendly and informative, the room was almost clean and breakfast was fair. Everything in the room was cheap and plain. The ironing board would not stand up. The breakfast was very limited and the food was bland. The price was extreme for what it had to offer but was cheaper than the Hampton next door on this night. The next two nights I moved to the Hampton, which was cheaper and a far superior room.

Very clean! Front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Pool and hot tub were perfect after a long day of traveling. Beds delightfully comfortable. My only complaint was that the common areas were a bit too well-heated! Would definitely visit again!

Stayed here overnight with son. Comfortable room. Hampton Inn next door for twice as much. WiFi worked well. Easy check in. 24 hr fitness room. Hot tub was warm, but not scorching hot. Only issue was shower head broken so I couldn’t change the water flow. Will stay here again when in the area.
