The last stretch of our West Coast road-trip landed us in Eureka for the night. Having not made any reservations, my husband skeptically contacted the Carter House Inn about any openings. The front desk reception was so friendly and accommodating and within minutes, we were booked and headed to the Inn. Upon arrival, we were given a quick tour and... More

For over a year we have been looking forward to staying in this boutique hotel and on Sunday past we did! Thanks to the adorable Calpie Lenckhart we were given the 3rd floor corner Jacuzzi suite 301 and we had a wonderful experience in the hotel. Unfortunately we did not get to meet Callie but thanks again. We did however... More

The property is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are amazing! The carter house has a few suites and the lower level is a common area with two living rooms and a full kitchen. I highly recommend a stay here!

Excellent hotel. Delightful dinner and service. The best place to stay in Eurika. All "Unique Inns" in which we have stayed are very good. Makes traveling a joy! Nothing was too much trouble and the food was really very very good. Thank you.

I was first impressed by the Carter House when I spoke with Ally on the phone. She not only helped me with our reservation for this property, she also gave us excellent travel tips for good spots to stop at in the Redwood Forest. When we checked in in-person, she even recalled our phone conversation. She kindly gave us a... More

In town on business for the day. It was either the Carter house or the Holiday Inn Express. The Carter house is set in old town and you can walk everywhere. The room was great, bed was nice, and the sheets were something else! They were so soft you wanted to take them home. (Ask at the front desk for... More

Hotel Carter was a bright spot in the dreary Eureka weather. The extra touches made our stay enjoyable beyond the norm. The staff were all helpful and the Happy Hour was fun. A cozy area is set up for guests to enjoy appetizers and a complimentary drink. This was followed by fresh cookies and tea later in the evening. The... More

We happened upon the Carter House on a recent trip to the Redwoods and were not very impressed. It wasn't so much the accommodations but the attitude of the staff left a lot to be desired. They made us feel like they were doing us a favor by letting us stay there. If you like a warm friendly staff and... More

We decided to stay at the Carter House Inn on our way up to see the redwoods on our road trip honeymoon through California. Of the many places we stayed by far our favourite night of the whole honeymoon was the one spent here. The staff were fantastic, welcoming and helpful and we really appreciated the upgrade after the long... More
