Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by moth always the best choice in the area!
been staying here for decades and always find this to be the very best place to stay in the Arcata area.
staff is always great, helpful and very friendly...they actually remember me from year to year...
I have suggested this over the years, but will try again....Natural diets are very popular now, why not provide organic breakfast items?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mryahtzee Worth an extra drive
I stay in the area once a week, and though McKinleyville is and extra 10 minutes or so drive, it's way better than staying at the alternatives. The staff is excellent. The only thing I wish for is that there were more food options within walking distance. But I order a pizza to be delivered every time and I'm good to go!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fluttur Will stay again.
We stayed at this hotel as my son was visiting a local college. I would not hesitate to recommend or stay at this hotel again. The staff was very friendly and professional. They even helped my son to find a place that would provide pizza to the room as he was not feeling well and did not want to go out to eat. They even made him an additional batch of cookies so he could have warm ones. The facility and room were nicely maintained. Thank you for the exceptional service.

I stayed one night during business trip and this was simply the nicest Holiday Inn Express I've ever stayed at. The staff was courteous and very helpful. The property was immaculately maintained. Overall, an excellent value.

Sean at the front desk was very helpful, check-in was a breeze.
Emily who takes care of the breakfast area should get a raise!
She was not only on top of filling up and replacing emply trays...she was very nice. Both mornings we were there the breakfast area was PACKED...She did an excellent job.

This was our second visit to the hotel, for a total of 4 nights and we loved it, very clean, wonderful staff and a great breakfast. The staff is amazing, very helpful. Was welcomed warmly and wasn't harassed about my service animal. they welcomed her as well. I feel at home when staying at the hotel. is the only hotel I will stay out when traveling in that area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LuckyTravel Good to stay while in Northern California
We were traveling the Northern California and book this hotel on the route. We arrived in the middle of the night and the staff make us felt very welcoming. The next day when we have our breakfast we forgot the breakfast hours in over at 10:00 and we were late and they keep servicing us. Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FrequentFlyerMatt Great staff, nice hotel.
Stopped here on our way from San Fran to Portland. The staff was very friendly when we checked in, recommending some local restaurants to us.
We were upgraded to a suite for being a platinum member. The suite was in the new addition area of the hotel, which was a little bit of a walk from the elevator. For the rest of our stay, we used the stairs right by our room for easy access to the car. The suite was new. One thing I liked was the shower door, which was designed to keep water from getting on the bathroom floor. This is a problem I tend to notice at other hotels that only have a curtain.
My wife and I used the pool and fitness center. The ellyptical was a little squeaky, but they had weights and a bench, which isnt always the case with HIEs.
The breakfast selection was above average. The hotel location was close to the airport and was very windy both days that I was there. I'm not sure if that was just the time of the year (March) or that the location gets a lot of wind.
I would stay here again if I'm ever back in the area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BudF I'm watching a decline
I stay at this hotel 30-0 nights a year. This latest stay was a surprising disappointment that appears to be becoming a downward tread. As a former hotelier I see it clearly. Nip it in the bud now would be my suggestion.
Front desk is consistently well handled however this stay was rougher than most. It may be understandable that the hotel was experiencing internet issues out of your control.
Initial room assignmnet was a disaster. The room reeked of cannibus smoke despite this being a non-smoking hotel. It was coming from the ajoining/connected room.
The room reassignment went smooth nowever the room needed attention. There was a lft over beer can and a large pink box approximately 2'x3' from a barbie doll toy that had been left in the room. This oversight makes the quest be concerned about other ares of overlooked cleaniiness.
The hot tub badly needed attention. Upon notification the staff responded but to was far too late to save the experience. The oder made the pool unusable. Why should a guest need to tell you tell you that the water is yellow/green.
The breakfast was the usual. Is there any chance of getting a non-pork meat entre? Many facilities I stayare now offering turkey sausages with the pork.
Bottom line: not many other options in the area however I am looking forward to the new HIE in Eureka. Excellent staff that just needs more supervision/follow-up.

One of the nicest Holiday Inn Express locations that we've stayed at. And we've stayed at quite a few across the country.
Halfway between Eureka CA and the Redwood National Park it's convenient to both.

I traveled to Eureka for business and had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at HIE. Jade was very welcoming and kind during the check in process. She even gave me a goody bad for priority members with two bottle of water and chex mix. Not all HIE properties do this but it is greatly appreciated when they do.

Evening staff when we showed up without reservations were extremely nice and helpful. Made us feel right at home after a long drive.
Can't say enough about your staff. If every hotel were so lucky travel would be much more enjoyable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Toby317 Old Food - Yuk!!!!!
The room and accomodations were what you would expect from HIE; however, the food in the breakfast bar was old and not fit to eat. The milk was warm and sour (even though the expiration date was not past). I tried a second container of milk with the same result. The hard-boiled eggs were tough and old. I have a relatively strict diet regime, and there was nothing for me to eat outside of a banana. I had to purchase lunch elsewhere, thereby reducing the overall value of the stay. I think the refrigerator for the milk and eggs was defective and only partially cooling the food inside. It should be checked to see that it is working properly or if the temperature setting is wrong.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jim55 Needed support during our move to Eureka
I am most grateful for the experience that we had in our stay at the HIE in Arcata...My wife and I recently purchased a home in Eureka, and had to stay in the hotel while waiting on delayed closing..It was as close to home as we could have expected..We felt secure, the breakfast and amenities were awesome, and the staff was always helpful, better than average...I will highly recommend this hotel to anyone who comes to see us, or is in the area visiting...Thanks for the good experience...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RichardP Wonderful Lobby!
This Holiday Inn Express had the best lobby we have ever seen. And it was "decked-out" for the Christmas Holidays. The folks there did a wonderful job with the decorations.
We were able to walk to the IN&OUT Burger place which was fun!
I would be happy to stay there again!

My wife and I utilized the hotel for a date night. As local residents, we are aware of sub-standard 20th century accommodations in our local area (Eureka, Arcata). The Holiday Inn Express in McKinleyville has always been professional, clean and hospitable. In particular, the night we stayed, the staff was very helpful in setting up a courtesy shuttle to a local casino restaurant. Last, but not least- the hotel was clean..

We stayed on two separate nights as we traveled to and from San Francisco. Both nights were exceptional and we were thrilled that the breakfast was served at 4:30 AM and allowed us to get on the road early.
