  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The Carter Houses Inn is very charming and elegantly decorated. The staff welcomed me warmly when I arrived late. My room was lovely and old-fashioned in decor but had everything in good shape that I needed. The bed was comfortable. I would have liked a room fridge, but that was a small thing. I stayed in the larger building that has the restaurant. There are very beautiful individual Victorian houses that guests can stay in also. The morning breakfast was quite delicious.

Great inn in Eureka

The combination of a top rated restaurant, fun little bar area and a very clean, safe and comfortable room made this stay a terrific experience. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The extra special touches of bathrobes and warm throw blankets were appreciated. I highly recommend!
