My husband and I took a trip down the coast with our dogs and stayed at the Carter House Inn. Callie was very helpful in booking our room. Because of the dogs we had an adorable room on the ground floor of the Carter House across the street from the main hotel. At the front desk we were greeted by... More

We made reservations several weeks ago for the Carter House Inns in Eureka CA. As we rolled into town on April 8, 2014 I was not impressed with the town. The hotel is located right on the edge of a questionable neighborhood, but the hotel, which is actually two buildings right across the street, still looked nice. We stayed in... More

Had a wonderful time. Callie, Chase, and Danielle were most helpful in giving us info before our arrival, and were definitely influential in our choosing the Carter House. Facility was beautifully maintained, and conveniently located near historic district. Restaurant was excellent, and complimentary wine in late afternoon was nice touch, as well as complimentary water in the room. We would... More

We arrived in Eureka for the first time late in the day and stopped at a few motels with no real luck or interest. We hopped on Trip Advisor and saw Carter House Inn. We walked in and there were people sitting around on couches sipping wine, the place looked clean and the reception staff were very friendly. We were... More

Other activities kept me from happy hour, but I was glad to take advantage of the freshly baked cookies each night. Three nights, three different kind, each better than the ones before! (And breakfast is pretty good too.)

After a day in the redwood forests, we were ready for some civilization. Carter House was the perfect resting spot. Rooms were clean, attractive, and comfortable. Lobby and service were warm and inviting. Put the kids to bed and enjoyed a drink at the cozy bar. The next morning, appreciated the good coffee and fresh fruit on the breakfast buffet.... More

Carter House Inns has thought of everything! On top of having what all hotels do, clean towels, maid service, restaurant, etc., they have all the little extras! Bath salts, rubber bath mat, comfy robes, DVDs to watch, makeup remover towelettes, umbrellas, AND a buffet and delicious hot entree for breakfast at no additional charge! They also provided a wood burning... More
