Located on the Arcata town square, this hotel was completed in 1915, when you could score a bed for a buck a night. Some say ghosts still frequent the halls.
The 32 small rooms offer turn of the century décor, including claw-foot tubs and period antiques, plus free wifi and continental breakfast. Those traveling with pets can let Fido tag along (for an additional fee).
Tomo, the best Japanese restaurant in town, occupies the ground floor. The creative sushi rolls, extensive vegetarian sushi selection and consistently good meals lure locals. They’ll even deliver room service to hotel guests.
