Great Customer Service & Amenities
Reviewed 7 days ago

I was visiting my son and daughter-in-law in Eureka and had heard great things about Carter House. I was not disappointed! The front desk staff was warm and welcoming. I was checked in by a young Latina woman. I didn't catch her name, but she was very nice and offered me a glass of champagne and reserved me a table at the restaurant. I ended up not eating there because I found a cute restaurant in old town that looked more interesting. The lobby furniture was disappointing, but the staff is so wonderful! I will definitely be coming back to the Carter House.

We had dinner in the 301 restaurant and they had just rolled out a brand new menu and the food was absolutely amazing! I cannot wait to plan my wedding there next year !

Anniversary Bliss

Came for our anniversary a little staycation. We live in the area but wanted to do something a little special. We were treated like royalty, welcomed by name, escorted to our room, later a lovely bottle of wine arrived with well wishes from the staff. Food is outstanding, service impeccable and an overall lovely experience.

A must visit in eureka!

I came across this hotel on hotels.com while searching and being that type of person who loves to discover old revamped hotels I really wanted to give this one a shot. I promptly booked my room and based off prior experience called to make sure they received the reservation. Well low and behold the room I booked was already taken mind you this is NOT the hotels fault. I believe that the customer service I received from I believe Carmen was absolutely amazing. With that being said with a few back and fourth phone calls hotels.com's system was down which is what caused the error. However I ended up paying 50$ more after asking the manager to price match a larger room to which she agreed. I am slightly disappointed but I also understand that they cannot make another room magically appear and they did heavily discount it. I am still slightly excited to stay in this historical victorian for the evening. Well I get here and I was sadly disappointed. The photos I looked at online are extremely misleading. Family suite has what looked like a beautiful 4 poster bed and even has 2 seperate bedrooms. Well here are the issues that I have found so far the 4 poster bed is trash my husband quickly noticed it was not stable. in the second room mind you this is a FAMILY suite usually the word family is matched with CHILDREN has a bed that is I kid you not at least 4 feet tall my 6 year old is about as tall as this bed meaning he could not even jump to get onto it. This bed is ALSO on hard wood floors so this means that when my kid falls out of this bed he's cracking his head open. in case you think I am exaggerating they had to stack 2 end tables on top of each other to make it high enough to sit next to this bed. So at a DISCOUNTED 200$ a night we had to remove the mattress from the bed and place it on the floor yup my kids could not even sleep in a proper bed they had to sleep on the floor 😑. Now I did ask if they had anything else and I have no doubt that they would have helped out on this one even though I have been their biggest pain all day but there was just nothing that they could do so I negotiated putting the mattress on the floor and asking them to put it back upon our departure. But back to it the furnishings are old and stained which was a real bummer compared to the other property across the street with the restaurant. I am also going to state I do not feel very safe here. As I was walking downstairs to grab something out of my car I came across a man whom I will not judge but we will say he looked run down and he had a dog who lunged at my children I had to pull them to the side while he got ahold of his animal. Eureka is a sketchy town all together and I have stayed here probably 15 times but I have never full blown not wanted to actually stay the night in a hotel before. Today was that day. My advice if you are going to book here do not book in the older building book in the newer one. I do believe that this would be a great location with some money put into it and at over 300$ a night for this specific room there is no way the owner can't swing some new furnishings like what they have in the newer building. It's sad to say I won't be returning because you never get customer service that is this great. I stay at many hotels and have never been treated better unfortunately it's not my cup of tea. I expect far better for the price.

The Sneak Peek
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

My wife and I enjoy staying here when we have trips to the area. This particular trip was a game changer. We are sitting at the bar having our complimentary glass of wine when she over hears a “ Bloody Mary “ conversation. Side note: Our #1 search on Yelp is Bloody Mary. Obviously, she nudges me and says “ They have new Wild Mary’s coming. Out “. After a little begging we were offered a Sneak Peek at Breakfast the next morning. It’s official, Carter House Inns has the Ultimate Bloody Mary’s EVER!!! Official Release of the Wild Mary’s is during Brunch on June 1, 2019.
