Overall wonderful experience. A cozy entrance area, with a nice fire place going and seating. Hors d'oeuvres in the evening there, and a free glass of wine for guests. Had dinner in the restaurant, which was excellent. Staff is light overall because it is not a big hotel, but I was not in a rush and the little time I...

Absolutely beautiful bed and breakfast in Eureka. The staff are amazing and the overall customer service is excellent. Great for spending time with the family and making day trips in Eureka and the surrounding areas. The restaurant in the main building is also awesome with very good food.

After reading about the charms of Eureka I was a bit surprised to find just a tiny area of this city to be blessed with the words quaint and cute. However, our choice of hotel was perfect. The CARTER HOUSE INS has few separate buildings and we stayed in the one where also the restaurant is located. Our room, rather...

My stay at the Carter House Inns was for just one night on my way to Eugene, Oregon. I arrived pretty late close to nine pm and their restaurant was closing. The front desk staff who checked me in was kind to make the exception for me so I can get something to eat after having been on the road...

TripAdvisor gave great reviews and I was not disappointed. Cool lobby,fireplace, great happy hour, free glass of wine and appetizers on arrival. Very comfortable rooms, great bathrooms with high end everything. Restaurant attached menu looked great, only had 2 people but we could not get a table because a party of 10 was about to arrive. All good, this is...

We had a nice experience at Carter House Inn. The staff was very friendly and the Resturant offered some very nice meals. Our meals were excellent. The rooms were very clean and comfortable.

I decided to explore a new family tradition for Thanksgiving, and chose the Carter House. This was an excellent choice. The staff was very accommodating and attentive to this mom, travelling solo with a toddler boy, and made us feel right at home. The food was exceptional, and the wine list out of this world! In addition to the staff,...

Eureka is such an obvious stop on any US west coast road trip. We've stayed there overnight a few times, but struggled to find food and accommodation that was better than "adequate". Until we happened on this place. Close to the water. Beautiful buildings recreated in the style of the nearby Carson House. Great wine cellar and incredible food. Apparently...
