This is by far one of the nicest places we have ever stayed over the years. From the moment you walk in the door you are surrounded by comfortable elegance, charm, and hospitality. The young lady who "took us over", Elena, was pretty, very bright, and very well mannered. Our first floor room was perfect (there were four rooms on...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your great review about Carter House Inns and Restaurant 301. You had all of us buzzing about Dame Helen Mirren. Although celebrities at the hotel are not new to us, it is exciting every time we host one. We do try to give everyone the same wonderful vip service so we are just as excited...

My husband and I were driving up the coast of California and wanted nice bed and breakfast accomodations. Our stay at Carter House Inns was great, the hotel staff was knowledgeable about the area and our room was very clean (a must!). There is anjoining restaurant to the main building and it was pretty busy on the Thursday we got...

My husband and I just recently visited the beautiful Carter House Inn in Eureka for our 5 year anniversary. From the minute we arrived, everyone at the hotel made us feel so special and looked after. We had a couples massage in our UPGRADED suite, which was fantastic. The happy hour in the bar with the complimentary glass of wine...

Despite a busy hotel weekend in Eureka, we were able to find a room in one of this hotel's cottage properties (Bell Cottage). The three separate buildings are on two opposite corners with remarkably easy access to Highway 101. The neighborhood is quiet and filled with Victorian style homes. The main building has a unique check in desk that is...

Stayed here with my husband. Rooms are nice, but a bit small. We paid for deluxe "queen". It seemed like a standard double with a queen headboard. I'd ask about that next time. The service was excellent, very helpful and accommodating. We canceled our dinner reservations at the last minute and they were totally ok with that. A full breakfast...

when I travel to eureka for business, there is no other hotel I would stay at but the Carter House. It's a full service hotel with great staff, food, ambience, and class. It's my home away from home for the past 5 years. Joan

For one reason or another we decided to break the journey from San Fran to Portland mid way which is Eureka, finding very little accommodation we chose Carter House which on the whole was a nice place let down by noisey neighbours, rumbling garbage trucks, a window that wouldn't close and a lumpy bed. Staff were all fantastic, dinner was...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review and we are sorry that your stay didn't exceed your expectations. We do replace mattresses on a periodic basis and, if that one particular one seemed lumpy to you, we apologize. We will give that room special consideration when we do our replacements. Best wishes, Mark Carter
