Found this hotel in Eureka after looking at Trip Advisor Reviews and we're so glad we did the research! This hotel is lovely and full of character and charm. We were given a large corner room with four poster bed and fireplace which is way more than we were expecting. The bed was a little uncomfortable & squeaky but that... More

The shower head was broken And the mattress was old & squeaky. There was a wooden unfinished looking canopy around the bed which looked... More

It was the weekend between Christmas and New Years that I visited the Carter House Inn. When I walked into the lobby with high ceilings, lots of light, tasteful furnishings, I knew I had made the right decision. My room was very clean, comfortable, quiet and had everything I needed. The staff very polite, courteous, helpful and friendly. The breakfast... More

We were in town for a family event. The Carter House Inn always makes a trip to Eureka memorable. While it might be time for a few updates (new mattress in the suite?) and furniture in the lobby....its still a unique, charming place to stay and a great stop for anyone traveling on the West Coast! The morning breakfast and... More

Dear Becca, Thanks for your review, for staying with us, and for your nice comments about our Inn and its amenities. We have taken your suggestions seriously and are acting upon them. While the mattresses/box springs are on order, the lobby furniture is usually custom made, so it will take a little more time for a change there. If you... More

The Carter House Inn was the perfect romantic getaway. To make it perfect my boyfriend arranged for the local horse drawn carriage to pick us up at the Inn and give a tour of old town then take us to dinner. Between the fireplace in our room, the carriage to ride in and the fun little old town to walk... More

Beautiful craftsmanship, excellent service, sparkling clean rooms, hardy breakfast that, along with complimentary wine, makes it well worth the price! Located a few blocks from Humboldt Bay in the Old Town area of Eureka with lots of revitalized Victorian homes.

Stayed here on a rainy night in November during our drive down the coast from Seattle to SFO. We were lucky enough to get an upgrade to a suite which was absolutely amazing!!! The staff were very friendly and the room was super clean and very well appointed. The breakfast was great and we'll definitely be back next year. All... More

My wife and I stayed here for a short two night trip up to the redwoods. This is probably one of the few nice hotels you will find with in a reasonable driving distance to Redwood National Park.
