Beautiful Inn. Room was a bit small, but just fine. Loved the bar and the complimentary drinks. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was EXCELLENT, cooked to order special as well as an amazing continental breakfast.

This hotel is so beautiful! The people on reception are friendly and welcoming and kind and thoughtful! You are treated as though you are close family! The rooms that we had were just superb - really clean and spacious, delightfully old fashioned and wonderfully luxurious!! I don't think that I have ever stayed in a better hotel. The dining area...

This was our second time to visit the Humboldt Bay area and stay at the beautiful Carter Hotel. The entire facility is so well maintained and beautifully decorated. We love staying in one of the spacious Grand Suites. The fireplace and jacuzzi tubs enhance the experience. Breakfast and a glass of wine were complimentary. The food at the restaurant and...

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. The second time was not *quite* as great. We stayed on the second floor, and could hear a little noise - nothing major, though. Also, on...

Overall wonderful experience. A cozy entrance area, with a nice fire place going and seating. Hors d'oeuvres in the evening there, and a free glass of wine for guests. Had dinner in the restaurant, which was excellent. Staff is light overall because it is not a big hotel, but I was not in a rush and the little time I...

Absolutely beautiful bed and breakfast in Eureka. The staff are amazing and the overall customer service is excellent. Great for spending time with the family and making day trips in Eureka and the surrounding areas. The restaurant in the main building is also awesome with very good food.

After reading about the charms of Eureka I was a bit surprised to find just a tiny area of this city to be blessed with the words quaint and cute. However, our choice of hotel was perfect. The CARTER HOUSE INS has few separate buildings and we stayed in the one where also the restaurant is located. Our room, rather...
