We were greeted warmly by Donna the evening we arrived and given a tour of the house. The Garden View Suite was well decorated, but the bed was pretty firm for my personal taste. We met Bob in the morning when it was time for breakfast. The green chili and white cheddar souffle served for breakfast was outstanding.

Beautiful home

This was our 7-8th visit to the Cornelius Daly Inn. The common areas are comfortable and inviting as are the individual rooms. Our favorite is the Victorian Rose Room. It is a great place to stay--beautiful home with friendly hosts. Donna's breakfasts are NOT to be missed. My husband got in at 2:30 a.m. When I asked him if he wanted to get up for an 8:30 a.m. breakfast, he said, "YES. I'm not going to miss one of Donna's breakfasts." We will return!!!

Great Place to Stay!

We were very impressed with our stay at the Daly Inn. The Home was a beautiful old mansion. The hospitality was great and the breakfasts were among the best I've had. My seven year old daughter remarked that it was one of the best places she had ever stayed.

A great place to stay in Eureka

4.0 on November 12, 2013

Everything was as advertised. That is quite an amazing home. Breakfast was outstanding and the owner was also an excellent tour guide of the house. Only disappointment was the check in time. I'm sure it was stated as 4:00 PM, but we would have preferred something a little earlier. All in all, a very pleasant experience.
