This one may have won me over...
I stay at the HIE in Eureka every other month (for years now). This time the prices were so crazy I decided to try Arcata. I was pleasantly surprised. The area is a little better, you can rent bikes
to ride on the trail/or walk the trail and they have jacuzzi tub rooms with balconies.
The room could have used some touch up pain and TLC in a few areas, but it wasn't to bad. [Less]
