Such a pretty place to stay in Arcata. Very, very clean and very close to Humboldt campus.

Studio, so very open floor plan. Loved the balcony to sit outside in evening with a glass of wine. Lovely places to eat in downtown Arcata. Would love to stay here again in the future!

Easy to set up accommodations online. Call backs are very prompt.
