If you are looking for accommodation in Eureka or near Humboldt Redwood State Park, look no further than Carter House Inn. I just returned from a night here and was very impressed. I did a lot of online research and was pleased with my choice.
The room ('Really Nice Queen' Room 212) was charming, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was large with lots of vanity space, great water pressure and all the amenities, including soft bath robes. I was staying on the second floor and had no issue with noise that others have written about. Television included a selection of Direct TV channels and there was a DVD player.
The staff were excellent - I was shown to my room by a friendly and professional front desk attendant and Tanya in the restaurant was very efficient and friendly. It is this type of service that makes this hotel stand out from an anonymous chain.
The breakfast was delicious - a buffet selection of granola, fresh berries, scrumptious fresh pastries (slices of berry galette, walnut tarts and strawberry muffins) and toast in addition to a hot freshly cooked egg scramble with green onions and cheese and crispy bacon. Perfectly cooked, loads of flavor and melt in the mouth. My compliments to John the chef! It was the perfect way to start the day and kept me going through to a late lunch. It was clear that some of the guests at breakfast were regulars (business travelers) and I was impressed that Tanya knew their names and preferences and made new guests feel very welcome. I can see why people come back!
Wine and cheese was served in the afternoon and tea, coffee and cookies at night. Very nice touches that gave this hotel an intimate bed and breakfast feel.
Great location too! Just a few blocks walk from the start of Old Town Eureka with many restaurants and shops.
I felt my stay was extremely good value and would recommend this hotel to anyone.
