Nice but not great. Too much money for what you received. Horrible mattress. Don't get the Redwood romance package, not worth the money. They forget to give you all your perks. The champagne was terrible.

Hi Tina V, I am not sure what perks we missed? Our staff always does this best to go above and beyond for all of our guests, especially for packages. The champagne that we poor is actually quite a high end champagne, the Taittinger Brut to be precise. I do recall you dining with us and leaving the bottle at...

We had a wonderful time at Carter House. We were there for the music festival and we found a location to be perfect for our needs. The staff in the room were wonderful. Thank you very much for a great time. Parking was easy and safe.

This place is very nice and has woderful food. I am glad to hear there is new staff here, as the original staff from long ago was not very likeable. It was like a soap opera, everyone talking about everyone. Glad the Carter House is doing well.

We recently visited Humboldt County and stayed in the Library Suite. Loved the spaciousness of the two bedrooms, and the cosyness of a fireplace in the room. Everything about our stay was perfect; the staff is very attentive and friendly; and the food superb. They have an impressive wine list; and I enjoyed the bonus of a free glass of...

Helpful and friendly staff. Lovely lobby and gathering area. High quality finishes and amenities in the Grand Suite. The place was a bit noisier than I like due to vehicle traffic outside. The "view" of the docks wasn't what I would call a view of the docks. Don't plan to watch TV in this room because the bed posts are...

We had a great time on our first visit -- stayed in the 3rd floor suite with a jacuzzi in the bedroom and a fireplace. It was quiet and the staff was extremely hospitable.
