I have been visiting this inn for past 10 years. What can I say? When you walk into the main hall, it's like visiting 1800s all over again, the design and atmosphere just blow you a way. the owners kept the price down by simple morning ritual which is fine with me. I rather use the money to visit Ramone's... More

Many of the usual hotels in Eureka are on the busy noisy highway. Eagle House Inn is in the restored downtown core away from the traffic. There is plenty of Victorian grandeur with elaborately carved wooden furniture, a ballroom with upper gallery above, and lovely little sitting areas on the bedroom floors where you can read or write or work...

We literally chose this spot 30 minutes before we arrived, last minute arrangements! The front desk lady was talkative and chirpy and offered us a discount rate when we called to inquire. We were given a cool room right over the front entrance with a great upper view of the street. There's an old grand ballroom to view and a... More

It's always our small staff's pleasure to make sure that we give every single guest the warmest personal service possible because... More

Four of us from Australia were doing a Harley ride down the 101 from Seattle to San Diego. We pulled into Eureka late in the afternoon and stopped in at the Harley Dealership. They recommended Eagle House Inn, and booked a couple of rooms for us. This is in old hotel with real character, with an excellent Irish pub/restaurant attached.... More

My husband and I loved the charm and history of this Inn. While traveling in Northern California we stayed 3 nights because of a big storm. Betty and Lee made us feel like we were at home. The Furniture was mostly period pieces and the wood work was original. We would return if we ever get back to the area.... More

Thank you! We're so pleased that this reviewer found our beautiful, historic inn such a hospitable, comfortable place to "call home" during the recent stormy weather (that gave our Northern California coast some much needed rainfall). Being able to stay with us for several days did indeed give them a chance to explore and enjoy the unique charms of the... More

I don't like staying at corporate chain hotels. Would much rather have a unique experience. I pulled in late after a long day on the road and the staff was so friendly and accommodating. Absolutely love the decor! Things are a tad musty, as befitting an old school hotel, but overall a really wonderful experience! By far beats any impersonal... More

Of course, we also want to sincerely thank them... More

We found this jewel of a Hotel/experience by accident and what a great find. It is like a time capsule back to the 1800's We have been there several times and have come with several members of our car club. Everyone there has been so accommodating and nice that it is truly a fun place.

Over the past 126 years, the Eagle House has been proud to be known as a wonderful place... More

The property is in a "seedy" area of town with all sorts of "characters" making noise at all hours of the night. There is a fair amount of clutter in and around the property and an awful smell - especially the elevator. The rooms were dated and the linens look like they belonged in a home rather than an Inn....

We are truly sorry that this reviewer found their stay at our inn less than satisfactory. But, we are who we are--a 126 year old historic inn that is where it is, with our rooms, vintage furnishings, and surrounding area all reflecting our historical and Victorian heritage. It's unfortunate that none of these met this reviewer's expectations. In any case,... More
