Stayed here with my husband. Rooms are nice, but a bit small. We paid for deluxe "queen". It seemed like a standard double with a queen headboard. I'd ask about that next time. The service was excellent, very helpful and accommodating. We canceled our dinner reservations at the last minute and they were totally ok with that. A full breakfast... More

when I travel to eureka for business, there is no other hotel I would stay at but the Carter House. It's a full service hotel with great staff, food, ambience, and class. It's my home away from home for the past 5 years. Joan

For one reason or another we decided to break the journey from San Fran to Portland mid way which is Eureka, finding very little accommodation we chose Carter House which on the whole was a nice place let down by noisey neighbours, rumbling garbage trucks, a window that wouldn't close and a lumpy bed. Staff were all fantastic, dinner was... More

Congrats to the new bride, but for me it sucked, we arrived about 7:00 pm August 1st our 27th anniversary, to find the hotel lobby and restaurant full of wedding party guess, we had to find someone to check us in, then we were told that the restaurant was just for the party, after driving all day to get here,...

We stayed here on our trip down the coast from Oregon to San Francisco and were so pleased with EVERYTHING. The room was lovely and comfortable and the sheets heavenly. Great quality in everything else too, especially toiletries. We enjoyed a delicious dinner and breakfast at the restaurant on the main floor, and highly recommend it. The service is unpretentious...

We stayed here one night during our trip down the coast. It was wonderful! We had two rooms in a house that has 3 rooms and a few community rooms, so it was like we had the house to ourselves! The victorian house is beautiful with decorations that tie into the victorian theme. The bed was very comfortable! The staff... More

The hotel is gorgeous. What struck us the most was the amazing attention to details. From bathrobes that seemed more soft than experienced at other fine inns, to complete toiletry items that included things such as makeup remover and Q-tips to perfectly chilled champagne and very beautiful roses the stay exceeded our expectations. The furnishings and fixtures were very pretty,... More

This was our first visit to Eureka and stay in this bed and breakfast. Our room was located across the street on the bottom floor. The bedroom was beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. We attended the wine reception and had their cookies and tea in the evening. Both were lovely. The staff went out of their way... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Carter House Inn. We stayed in Rm. 210 and it was very clean and bright. There were also more than enough towels in the bathroom. The breakfast was amazing with hot and cold items to choose from. The staff was excellent. I highly recommend this B&B and we look forward to our... More
