I really can't say enough good things about the Carter House Inns. The service is exceptional, and everyone from the front desk to the bartender to the restaurant server went out of their way to make us feel welcome and coddled. Giancarlo deserves to be called out for his professionalism and wonderful attitude. It's worth noting that guests receive a... More

This is an amazing Hotel in an amazing town. It was my first and only trip to Eureka but I will definitely be back to this hotel. The architecture is remarkable in this side of town, this hotel is one of the centerpieces in town. The main hotel is across the street from the Carter house that is shown in... More

We visited this bed and breakfast last Christmas as a special treat to celebrate my husband's birthday. The location was great, the room was clean and tidy....but...the staff was stressed . We toyed over the idea of having an "elegant" , expensive meal in their restaurant ( 301), but I was nervous the restaurant looked empty during the Christmas season.... More

From opening the front door to having tea and cookies at night, every interaction with Carter House staff is a pleasure and everyone of them deserves five stars individually. In particular, I'd like to acknowledge Chef Benjamin and his ability to transform ordinary breakfast ingredients into art. In the evening, Chef Daniel has a wider palate of ingredients, yet even...

This was a one-night stopover for my girlfriend and I en route from Mendocino, CA to Ashland, OR. The hotel is in a little corner of Eureka that has a handful of Victorian homes. We didn't stay in the Victorian home part of the Carter House but caddy corner in the larger hotel building. I agree with other reviewers that... More

I found Carter House as a last minute reservation and decided to stay because of the great reviews. Customer service is clearly important to them based on how we were greeted, personally taken to our room and shown around, and then the staff at the bar and restaurant. We ate at the bar for dinner and had a great conversation... More

We stayed here just the one night but found the hotel to be extremely comfortable with excellent staff, a very friendly, warm inviting atmosphere as soon as we walked in the door. Charming building. We parked right outside on the street, very convenient. I would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone.

Room was clean, warm, towels and bathrobes were very high quality and fluffy, nice detailed bathroom, with excellent quality soaps and shampoos. Large choice of tv channels. Best part, you are offered a free glass of wine, a happy hour of little sandwiches, mixed meats and cheese by the fireplace. Fresh baked cookies after 8pm. A excellent gourmet restaurant is... More

In a town that seems to be full of 2/3 star motels, this in was a welcome find. The staff are warm and welcoming and the hotel clean and well equipped. The Victorian architecture is also great. Just a couple of minor points that would make this a five star review from me. The food is a little random. Strange... More
