      The staff were friendly, parking spacious, and the room had tea/coffee facilities and a fridge. There is a large indoor swimming pool and hot tub. There is a fitness room, but be sure to read comments below.

      The fitness room was marginal with the treadmill not working at all, the recumbent bike being a well-worn home-use machine, and the stack machine being, frankly, in an unsafe condition with frayed cables and broken pulleys. One has to be pretty serious about working out to choose to work on this equipment. The room was a bit small and the AC unit very noisy.

      Always comfortable and quite. Staff is welcoming.

      Price went up about $10 per night from about 76.00 to 86.00. Getting a little pricey considering it is Arcata.

      Very nice hotel property for the cost.

      The only thing I would have to say is that the pool was too overloaded with chemicals, too strong, could hardly stand to be around the pool, in fact, I left the pool area very quickly.

      Staff was very friendly. I really enjoyed the "continental breakfast", including bagels, bananas, hard-boiled (cold) eggs. There is a shopping center (food market, convenience restaurants) just around the corner.

      Room, furniture etc. looked somewhat worn.
