From the moment we arrived until the moment we left the personalized care from the staff was exceptional. Callie helped us with local attactions, arranged for wine to be delivered to our room,...

We stopped at the Carter House on our way down to Sonoma. The hotel was charming, the staff friendly and helpful. Our room was large and had the best bathrobes I've ever had in a hotel. I'll review the restaurant separately but I highly recommend you dine their when staying at the hotel.

I lived in the Bay Area for several years in my 20s, and had visited Eureka a few times before, not realizing that such a gem existed in the... More

I've been staying at the Carter House for over 10 years and while they've made stunning changes to the property and rooms so as to provide their guests with incredible comfort, so many of the things that make this place wonderful have stayed the same...welcoming longtime staff members, wine and tea and cookies and snacks waiting by the fire when...

Stayed here for Valentines Day. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Food at 301 was delicious. Best place to stay in the area. We stayed at the cottage, full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, huge deck. I should mention that the color scheme was unusual. Will stay here again!
