We stayed in Plaza View during my sister's wedding. It is comfortable, well equipped and very central. We've stayed at other Arcata Stay accommodations in the past and highly recommend them. There are several notes in the apt (with earplugs!) noting that the downtown square is a vibrant bustling square with restaurants and bars -- we did not experience any noise (we were there over the weekend) and will definitely come back. We visit Arcata every year and really appreciated the clean, comfortable apt, parking and location. Thank you!

The accommodations were lovely. The colors, artwork, and furniture were exquisitely chosen. The beds were wonderful to fall into after a day of exploring. I could stay for hours just viewing the Arcata Square from the balcony and windows, coffee in hand. Brochures and pamphlets of where to eat (although the kitchen was a fine alternative)and what to do in the areas were most helpful. There are wonderful places to eat all about! All the amenities of home, yet nicer! It was a terrific stay. A note to the light sleepers--on one side of the square are a row of pubs that close at 2:00 a.m.. The clientele can be a bit loud but we slept through (ear plugs are provided but we didn't use them). Also, on the square, it is common to see folks who have chosen to exist outside the societal norms. They choose to be what some would consider "homeless" but do not panhandle or bother folks. They were rather interesting to observe! We had a great stay.

Beautifully furnished accommodation in the center of Arcata

Review submitted: August 15, 2012   Date of arrival: August 11, 2012

4 members of my family recently stayed at the Plaza View rental and we were very pleased with our experience. The apartment is beautifully and tastefully furnished, with comfortable beds and furnishings, and wonderful local artwork everywhere. Everything you could need is included, right down to bathrobes, and a complete picnic basket.
With it's location right over the plaza, there is always the concern over noise issues. The owners have done their best, with double paned windows, white noise machines by the bed, and even ear plugs. However, on our stay none of this was needed. Even though we were there on a weekend, and the plaza was busy on Sat. night, the noise was never at a level that we noticed. I would say that if you were there on a big college weekend, say opening weekend or Homecoming, I think you might have some issues. The owners do have 2 other smaller properties there that don't overlook the Plaza that might suit you better if you are a light sleeper. However, in our case, we actually loved looking over the plaza from our balcony, and being so ideally located for walking to restaurants and shops.
The apartment exceeded our expectations- even our local Arcata daughter was very impressed. The price was also excellent, especially compared to having to book 2 hotel rooms instead. We look forward to returning to this location again someday.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
