The Carter House Inn offered a beautiful room, very tastefully decorated in soft hues. The beds were comfortable with loads of pillows and blankets. The bathrooms and shower was very modern and clean, clean, clean. There was on-ground parking. The front desk staff were pleasant and helpful. The wi-fi was free and quite strong. We had an issue at night... More

Stayed 2 nights with our dog in Room 505 on the ground level of the House. It has a separate entrance; great for dog. Dog welcome gift (bowl and blanket) provided; mandatory dog fee.Only problem was noise from other rooms and parking area; not really objectionable but enough to make our dog bark. Very comfortable room with giant bathroom. Friendly... More

We stayed at the Carter House this past week as we headed up the coast to Washington. I usually prefer new and modern hotels so this was a bit of a gamble for me. I have to say it was a wonderful experience. We were in room 301 with a bit of a marina view. The ambiance in the room... More

The service at The Carter House was very good, and we enjoyed the historic atmosphere, but there are several disappointments during our two night stay... While this Inn seems to rely heavily to its wine linkages, and to Carter House wines specifically which we wanted to try, we found it interesting that the "complimentary" glass of wine for guests each...

We were booked into this property by our travel consultant and knew very little about it. Was very happy with her selection. We stayed in the main building on the second floor. The room was small but adequate. They had a well stocked "honor basket", free wifi and the usual bathroom amenities but also had bathrobes - a nice touch.... More

Spent three nights here during mid-week, and the location is good, in the historic part of downtown Eureka, close to great coffee shops and bookstores, and I found an interesting clothing store that had some fantastic stuff. Room was very clean and comfortable, and was kept nicely cleaned by staff throughout my stay. I opted for one of the "deluxe"... More

We recently stayed at the Carter House in a beautiful suite on the third floor. Overall a wonderful experience. The room was elegant and service wonderful. We also dined at the on premise 301 Restaurant for dinner. The wine list is the most extensive I have seen in 20 years. Food also spectacular . You can't go wrong here!

Was supposed to stay a week,left after 3 days. Overrated, overpriced, second rate. I checked in to the Carter house with great expectations. Immediately impressed by the staffs friendliness and accommodation. Enjoyed the free glass of wine! Stayed for a beverage at the bar with Allie, an amazing bartender if ever there was one. From the wait staff in the... More
