We stayed here on our trip down the coast from Oregon to San Francisco and were so pleased with EVERYTHING. The room was lovely and comfortable and the sheets heavenly. Great quality in everything else too, especially toiletries. We enjoyed a delicious dinner and breakfast at the restaurant on the main floor, and highly recommend it. The service is unpretentious...

We stayed here one night during our trip down the coast. It was wonderful! We had two rooms in a house that has 3 rooms and a few community rooms, so it was like we had the house to ourselves! The victorian house is beautiful with decorations that tie into the victorian theme. The bed was very comfortable! The staff...

The hotel is gorgeous. What struck us the most was the amazing attention to details. From bathrobes that seemed more soft than experienced at other fine inns, to complete toiletry items that included things such as makeup remover and Q-tips to perfectly chilled champagne and very beautiful roses the stay exceeded our expectations. The furnishings and fixtures were very pretty,...

This was our first visit to Eureka and stay in this bed and breakfast. Our room was located across the street on the bottom floor. The bedroom was beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. We attended the wine reception and had their cookies and tea in the evening. Both were lovely. The staff went out of their way...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review and its great to know that you had such a pleasant experience at our Inn and that you enjoyed staying at the Carter House.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Carter House Inn. We stayed in Rm. 210 and it was very clean and bright. There were also more than enough towels in the bathroom.

Yes, this an older building. That is part of the charm. Yes, this town is a bit run down, but it was the perfect middle point between the south and the north Redwoods. Yes, the old town has many homeless persons, but we found a few very nice shops. Breakfast was great. The evening cheese was good but not much...

Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Booked a night in their suite with a couples package that included in room massage and dinner. The dinner and massage were fantastic, but the hotel and hotel hotel staff were disappointing. The room was old, not what I'd consider luxury. The staff were inexperienced and even a little hostile. Id skip the hotel and just have dinner next time.

So, my wife and I headed to Eureka to see the jazz festival, and made a reservation at the Carter House Hotel. Our room was weird (it had a spa in the middle of it) and zero view, not worth the price. The furnishings are quite old and uncomfortable but appeared to be clean. The staff for this hotel and...
