Amazing, historic, beautiful place to stay! Called late in the evening and Betty was more than ok with getting us a room within 20 minutes of calling her! So very glad we had the chance to stay here! Room 42, the very top, center of the building overlooking the historic downtown area. Our girls got to sleep in their own... More

It's always such fun whenever a guest traveling with "little ones" has the chance to stay with us in our very special (and definitely "magical" for them) room that this lovely reviewer described. (FYI, Trip Advisor readers, it's up on our top, 4th floor in the very front of the building, Room #42 (The Captain's Quarters/Wheelhouse Room). If you take... More

We stayed at this hotel on our bike trip from Canada down to the Red Woods.... We just happened upon this hotel in Old Downtown and decided to see if they had a room and as luck would have it.....they did! Yes it smells a little in the open parts of the hotel but the charm and warm hospitality makes... More

Best hotel? Wow! How about best guests! Yet another wonderful review of who we are and what we have to offer guests on motorcycles who discover us---and then, like this flattering reviewer add an extra night (in a completely different room) that they enjoy just as much as their previous room! We'd certainly love to have them come back and... More

This is our second visit here. Lots of charm and a few of the quirks that come with vintage accommodations. Our room (and bed!) was great, even had a sitting room next to the bedroom! The staff, just Betty really, was caring and helpful. She had us park our motorcycles in the ballroom. The owner was on vacation so the... More

Yep That's us: A charmingly quirky. slightly funky, vintage Victorian hotel that does tend to bring satisfied guests back again. Especially if they happen to be traveling on motorcycles (like this reviewer), They find that they're always welcome (unless there's an event going on) to safely park their precious bikes inside our beautiful, spacious, theater/ballroom. And, of course, our guest... More

We chose to stay at The Eagle House Victorian Inn in Eureka, CA for a few nights when we were traveling down the coast towards San Francisco. It is a well run beautiful old hotel with a lot of unique features like antiques everywhere and an absolutely fabulous ballroom! Yes there is a little bit of a musty odor in... More

This is a Victorian style inn built around 1888. It clean, well maintained with period pieces. The owner is very pleasant and takes pride in the hotel and community. Since this is an older property the power outlets are not necessarily sufficient or conveniently located for multiple electronics. The beds and pillows were reasonably comfortable. The room did not have... More

We want to thank this reviewer for being so detailed in describing their stay with us at the Eagle House. Since we are indeed an historic structure (that rambles about in many directions) some of the reception for our cable and wi-fi is stronger in some parts of the building than others. And, no. Our rooms do not have all... More

To start with the facts, it was clean, we had all we need, and it was comfortable. But what made it different is the furniture and the building and rooms itself. Wow, all kind of antikes, nicely renovated, well done. The building seems to be directly out of the beginning of last century. I enjoyed the setting very much.

We're so pleased that this reviewer found us not only clean and comfortable, but enjoyed the historic, turn-of-the-century (1888) atmosphere that the Eagle House offers our guests (no matter which room they stay in). And, we appreciate them taking the time to share their positive experience---because it's reviews like this that encourage other travelers heading to Old Town Eureka to... More

We made a road trip up from San Francisco to see the redwoods sans a hotel reservation. Bad move. Every place was full except Eagle House. Went in with a little trepidation. Musty smelling lobby jammed with antiques, immediately greeted warmly. We were given the option of looking into the rooms before committing to paying. We were surprised by the... More

This reviewer is absolutely right. They were really lucky to find us at the last minute---especially without a definite reservation during one of the area's busiest weekends of the year. (In fact, we were completely sold out soon after they checked in.) And, we do appreciate their supportive words about our unique inn, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, and family-friendly, on-site... More

I absolutely love this inn! I stay here whenever I visit the area and would not think of staying anywhere else. The staff are exceptionally friendly and really do their best to please and accommodate. It's close to the bay and I enjoy listening to the sea lions in the early morning hours. Definitely the best place in town if... More

First of all, what the management could control was very nice. The neighborhood, however, is another issue. I was traveling alone this trip, and wouldn't come back with my wife. I'd give it a 4 if it wasn't for the neighborhood. My wife and I stay in a lot of B&Bs in the US, Canada and the UK, and the... More

We're so pleased our inn reminded this kind reviewer of their favorite in the UK; and that they completely understood just why we "smell" the way we do. It does come with well over a century of being in existance. On the other hand, we are so sorry that our surrounding neighborhood was obviously being walked through that evening by... More

We stayed here as per the local Harley Davidson shops recommendation because we could park our motorcycle in the ballroom. We called the hotel prior to inquire if there was vacancy. My dad asked if there was a hot tub or jacuzzi & the man on the other line said "You want pool , you go to motel" then hung... More

We do appreciate the fact that this reviewer did indeed decide to stay with us at the recommendation of the local Harley dealer (in spite of feeling that our owner's truthful response about staying elsewhere if they were looking for a pool was rude). Being able to safely park their motorcyles in our beautiful theater/ballroom with the personal help of... More
