Northern California's premier inn is an enclave of four magnificent Victorians perched alongside Humboldt Bay in Old Town, Eureka. The luxurious accommodations at Carter House Inns and the sumptuous dining at its Restaurant 301 (considered among Northern California's best restaurants) set and indulgent tone for a marvelous visit to the giant redwood forests, rugged Pacific beaches and the other wonders of Northern California's Redwood Coast.

We weren't here for long, we stopped here on route to Washington and had a good night's sleep in a comfy room. The breakfast was ok, not much on the buffet and Eureka itself seemed to have closed for the season.

Hello! Thank you for your inquiry. We are indeed dog friendly! There is a one time $50 extra person fee for the dog, which includes a dog bowl and dog blanket. We allow dogs in all of our rooms, but we find that most often our guests with dogs prefer to stay in a first floor room for ease of access to the outside. Please feel free to give us a call at 1 (707) 444-8062 or 1 (800) 404-1390; we would be happy to make a reservation for you! Thank you!

"The large suite with fireplace"
"our room on the second floor was quiet."
"The main hotel building has an elevator and may be the place to stay if stairs are difficult for you."
"Lots of stairs, so if you have accessibility issues, ask for first or lower floors."
