The cleanness of this inn shines form the second you enter, and it continues all over. Every room is unique and has its own style. Our bathroom was pink in every detail, which we have not seen elsewhere. The sleeping room was not big, but for an overnight stay it is ok, and the bed mattress was not soft, which... More

Genie was away when we stayed but Karen and Bruce welcomed us and gave us a good breakfast: fruit and Karen's hot scones, then scrambled eggs with ham & tomatoes. We ate dinner at the Lost Coast Brewery - excellent Sea Bass!

Nice little place in Eureka, CA my wife and I stayed at on our honeymoon. The rooms are nice, and the house is clean. I recommend this place. The host is super nice and friendly. The breakfast she makes is out of this world! Very good.

This is the place for you if you like attention to detail. Jean has that down from the time you enter the foyer, to your room, bathroom and least we not mention the breakfast. It all comes together to make you feel very special and cared for. Jean makes sure she knows your likes and dislikes for breakfast and then... More

On our road trip to the Oregon Coast we stopped for one night in Eureka. Having read reviews on trip advisor we decided to stay at The Ship's Inn. Genie was very gracious. We had the Captain's quarters, which had the most comfortable bed of our entire two week trip. I have stayed at many B&Bs and I have to... More

We stayed in this B&B for just one night and would stay again, in a different room. Ours had a separate bathroom which required walking through shared space to access. They provided bathrobes but it was still terrible to step out in the middle of the night in my pjs to use the toilet. While this is not such a... More

This might be just a touch over-Victorian for some tastes but it is a great B&B with lovely spacious confortable rooms, a warm welcome from Genie, and superb breakfast which included plenty of chat with our hostess about the locality. It's just a few minutes from the centre of town and the attractive waterfront but is on a quiet street.... More

This is a wonderfully cozy nest in the heart of Eureka. If you are traveling in Northern CA to see the Redwoods, innkeeper Genie will welcome you with open arms at The Ship's Inn. When staying at a B&B, the care and comfort of the innkeeper is paramount - and Genie doesn't disappoint. The theme is nautical with a huge... More

Our one night stay booked last minute, but we could not have wished for a more warm welcome to this beautiful house. The place was clean and decorated with lovely touches. Genie was so helpful with everything including recommending a great restauant. We will be returning for a longer stay. Breakfast was enormous and really tasty, we did not eat... More

We stayed here for one night and were very impressed! The house is a beautifully restored Victorian. The room was nice, spacious and clean. We were offered parking in the driveway beside the house. Genie was very nice and gracious. Upon check in, we had a lovely tour of the house (living room and den with brandy, puzzle and soft... More
