Excellent as always

Another excellent stay. If you want a relaxing and historic B&B with fabulous breakfasts and great hospitality, but with a billiards room for evening fun, this is for you!

Charming B&B

A real great experience to find a B&B in a Victorian house that has the atmosphere and details of a century ago. We had a very good night and a great breakfast next morning. Another time we would stay two nights.

I booked this at the last minute over a holiday weekend and had no expectations on what I would be getting on such late notice. The house is absolutely beautiful with the original victorian wood and gardens. The host and hostess were kind, gracious, and willing to answer any and all questions. Breakfast was delightful and elegant.

Loved it!

The home is in mint condition and the "Bradbury and Bradbury" wallpaper adds a lot to it's perfection. The bed was excellent and I found the perfect pillow out of the many on the bed. I loved the deep bath tub too!. Breakfast was excellent and filling and I had enough to take home. I loved the hosts, they were a perfect combo of being there if you needed them without hovering. I highly recommend staying here.

Quick Get-Away

If you like lovely old Victorian houses you'll love this one. Very charming and comfortable and the breakfasts were rich and filling.

A most beautiful and well-appointed inn

Simply stunning interior. We were fortunate to be there when there were no other guests, so we were able to see all 5 rooms. They're all stunning. The public spaces are also charming and comfortable. We spent a bit of time in the "Games Room" playing pool. It was nice to have something to do with our teenager besides watch TV. Something for everyone at this place. I wish Eureka was more of a destination than a stop-along-the-way. One could have a lovely vacation using the Cornelius Daly Inn as a home-away-from-home.

Really nice historic building

4.6 on August 16, 2014

The building is amazing with a lot of beautiful historic details. Room was clean and bed really comfortable. Breakfast tasty and served at 8.30 sharp. After the breakfast we even got a guided tour through the building and it's history. Would return!

Great value and experience

Bob who runs the inn was a great host and cook. It is a great value in town compared to the hotels in the area and about a 5-10 minute walk to old town. If you want to retire from the city the inn has a game room or garden to relax and entertain. Overall it is a beautiful house with history and a great experience.

Thank you for your genuine hospitality

We had a beautiful room- confortable and cosy. With the input of our hosts we were able to explore the local area and the Redwood Forest we were so charmed by our stay- great food at breakfast and we had wonderful meals at night in restaurants in the Historic Area- thank you !
