Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Agatehunter A better TV would have earned 5 stars
The overall experience would have earned 5 stars if the TV had been better. It was in definite need of replacement as the picture was really weird concerning the colors. Faces were blotchy yellow and it was not just a color correction issue. We didn't try to replace it as it wasn't the reason we picked this hotel, so this is the first mention of it to Holiday Inn. The breakfast setup is great if you're in a hurry as they have plenty of selections and even have a pancake machine. Nice swimming pool. Overall, a great stay, but please replace the TV.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vacationlover Excellent staff / value for the $$'s and would choose again
We wanted a hotel close to the beach and the Redwoods and planned one night, but ended up staying 4 nights. So glad we did. The breakfast was top notch and beats hands down any continental breakfast in any hotel I have ever had.
Nice TV, nice pool, close to services and a fridge and microwave in every room.

The hotel was in a good location and the design made the rooms very quiet. Also, the breakfast area was neat for the amount of people there.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TravellingMom4 Paid too much for this hotel.
I booked online to stay at this hotel. It was a decent hotel, but there was no wifi or cell phone service here! If I walked out into the parking lot I had one cell phone bar (carrier: T-Mobile), if I was lucky. The hotel wifi was non-existent. They said they had wifi, but out of four of us, no one was able to connect. Very, very frustrating. For the price I paid I should have driven on a little farther and stayed in Eureka - where cell and wifi service was truly available. On another note - there are no restaurants in the town that stay open past 6pm. We arrived hungry and ended up ordering pizza (which only takes orders until 8pm), because there were no other options for food in town. The hotel has a really nice lobby with a fireplace for relaxing and serves the typical Holiday Inn Express complimentary breakfast, which is great with kids. If you don't need wifi or cell service this hotel might work great for you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gastonman Great Location for a Redwood National park visit
The hotel is a great location to visit Redwood National park.
Our stay was very nice with one exception. The airconditioning unit leaked water on the carpet. We reported it twice and it never was fixed.
The room and hotel was very nice and the hot breakfast was exceptional. The staff is nice and helpful with only the above noted exception..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lilbeeker13 Room I never got to use/ couldn't get a refund even a week adv notice

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kaye13 Good location and comfortable room
This hotel was a good choice for our visit to Trinidad, CA which was 10 miles away. The room was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed having the free breakfast. Our only complaints were the strong bleach in the bed sheets and the sound transfer from one room to the next. Our neighbor's alarm went off at 6 a.m. and they proceeded to have a lengthy conversation each morning before showering which precluded any further sleep on our part.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TravelerNino2 Security concerns
At check-in the front desk attendant announced my room number, phone number and home address to other customers during my check-in. Also, the location of the room did not meet any of my requests and I had made the reservation weeks before arrival. I requested a room change from the same front desk attendant; after waiting an hour I, no response. the room was fine. Next time I will stay at the new hotel in Eureka.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barbara4 Need to bring back mattress pads to beds
This will be our second time staying in this HIE. It is a lovely hotel and is a quite a bit off of HWY 101, so quieter than most HIE properties. On our first visit a couple of years ago everything was perfect. However, this time we realized after our first night that they no longer had the nice soft, fluffy mattress pads on the beds. When I asked about it they said this property no longer used them. In all the other HIE properties we visited during our road trip up the coast of Oregon we noticed that they all were using them. The staff at the HIE in Arcata were very pleasant and willing to help and offered to put a duvet on top of the mattress (but under the sheets) to add extra cushioning and this really helped for the next night. So my only suggestion to the property is bring back those HIE fluffy mattress pads!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nana4 Noisy, door slamming
The desk service was excellent. Steve should be commended. It is the noisiest hotel we have ever stayed in. Each time a door closed it slammed with the closure. The ice machines can be heard throughout the building. The walls are paper thin so you can hear the folks in the hall as you pass by their rooms. The hotel is clean, but our room was not made up when we were out. The bed was made, but that was it. I don't know how to fix these things. It is too bad as the area is very nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by happylocal Best room we've ever stayed in
My husband and I reserved the suite with the jacuzzi tub. I have never stayed in such a clean, quiet, peaceful room. It was so spacious and the perfect getaway for us. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The breakfast was amazing with so many options! I was really impressed with this hotel and will gladly recommend it to anyone!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by familyfunvacation Best of trip
We just finished a trip around northern California. We stayed in five different hotels. This was our favorite. The room was new. The breakfast was good. The pool and hot tub were the best of the trip, which is nice after a day of hiking around the redwoods. We would absolutely stay again and have already recommended it to friends who are planning trips.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SMarie Favorite retreat at the coast
Very attractive, well maintained property. Nice lobby fireplace...very welcoming. The staff really tries to please. It's been quiet even though close to Hwy 101, and it's super easy to go north or south. Loved the bed and appreciate the room-darkening drapes. Convenient to excellent restaurants at Moonstone Beach (cool bar, yummy appetizers) and Trinidad (don't miss Larrupin Cafe) Can't wait to go back!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Field Great service nice breakfast
I will plan to stay again but I hope I am there the day they bake cookies. I was told they only do it every other day. The only negative was the doors from the hallway to the rooms are very heavy and noisy when people close them at night. Ths kept me awake until midnight on a Friday when I stayed there.
