Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Daly Inn. Our hosts were more than gracious and we had complete privacy in our clean, comfortable room. Breakfast was amazing and the timing of our visit was ideal as the colors of fall were beginning to take shape. We would certainly stay again if the chance arises.
We were stuck in traffic on the way from San Francisco and Bob was so nice on the phone when I called we'd be about an hour late. He met us and was extremely helpful. He was most gracious the next morning as he served us (and two other couples) breakfast - which was delicious. I wish we had more than one night to spend at this inn. I highly recommend it! Large room (includes sitting room and bedroom) and wonderful host!
This was our second experience staying at the 'Cornelius Daly Inn.' We continue to be pleasantly surprised by this grand old home and our hosts, Donna and Bob Gafford. Catherine and I would strongly recommend this bed and breakfast inn to anyone looking to stay in the Eureka, CA, area. Our suite was lovely, and the breakfast food was the best. Donna and Bob were exceptional hosts and treated us like family. In fact,we're looking forward to visiting again very soon!
A fabulous exposure for our 3 girls in gracious living and hospitality, a rarity in today's world. They will always remember your home, their temporary "palace," and having a delightful tea party there. Comfortable, clean, beautiful, and amazing breakfast for all. Thank you!
We had a very nice stay - and the host was very helpful. The house is beautifully restored, the rooms generously sized and comfortable. The negatives were the WiFi was a bit weak (at best), not enough outlets in the rooms to charge up various devices and the rooms facing H St. get a bit of street noise.
The Daly Inn is very unique--a 1906 mansion--beautifully restored, comfortable with outstanding hosts. The breakfasts are excellent and tasty. Donna and Bob made us feel right at home. We felt like family, but we did not have to do any chores!!! We'll go back.
Bob was a very gracious host during our stay, he is very knowledgeable about the local area and very helpful with any and all questions we had. He and his wife have done a great job restoring this home to its original luster, would definitely stay here again should our travels take us back to Eureka.
Been here 23 yrs ago and still the best as it is since then i fall in love in this place and looking forward to spend my 25th wedding anniversary. A highly recommended get away place to all fast paced and traffic environment.
We have stayed at a lot of B&B's, this was the best breakfast's we've had at a B&B! I had not noticed in the room description that there are no tv's in the room. We don't have cable and were looking forward to watching Shark Week. So we made ourselves at home in the living room downstairs with a tv.
Oh, what a wonderful b&b! I was a little apprehensive at first - the neighborhood where it resides was a little dark and desolate - but the Cornelius Daly was absolutely beautiful, impeccably maintained and just oh, so charming! Bob, the innkeeper, was a bit more reserved than innkeepers I've met in my travels, but nonetheless, polite, accommodating and just lovely. The breakfast in the morning was hearty and delicious. It's a shame the Cornelius Day Inn is in Eureka - There's not much there, unfortunately (although Bob recommended a delicious restaurant - The Sea Grill - for dinner), but the Cornelius Daly Inn is a wonderful place to stop over for the night on your way to more vibrant town or city in California.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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 !
Gorgeous old house, impeccably clean, tidy and comfortable. Quiet comfortable room, comfy bed and linens, antique furniture everywhere. Fabulous breakfast, delightful dining companions, perfect hostess. This is what a great B & B should be. If you are anywhere near Eureka, you MUST stay here.
We stayed in the master bedroom. It was quite spacious and well appointed . My only quibble is that the bathroom is not attached to the room. It is private but you have to leave your room to use it. It is however a good size bathroom. The breakfast was excellent. There are large common areas. One even has a large billiard table. The house itself is impressive and has a lovely outdoor area if you want to sit outside. All in all it was a great value.
What a fun trip I had with my family. We stayed a few days at the B&B and was surprised to learn the history of the house. The owners are amazing. The food, just as amazing. I have two young kids and they loved the game room. A nice place to stay if you don't want to camp in the redwood forest north of town. I do recommend this B&B. Also a great place for small groups.
We enjoyed the garden, the off-street parking, and the amazing quiche for breakfast. The hardware throughout the house makes the house feel like a museum. I haven't seen push button light switches since I visited my aunt's farm house in Ohio in the 60's. Apparently Restoration Hardware started out of the Victorian across the street. Be sure to ask the host about it. Speaking of which, both hosts were great. The made us feel comfortable without falling all over us. Overall a very lovely experience. Thank you!
I would highly recommend this B&B to everyone. The house was beautiful, the garden was beautiful, the service was outstanding, and the experience is one of a kind. Our family was very grateful for all the accommodations and hospitality we experiences. Eureka is a wonderful, hard-working town with a rich history and the people are all very kind. Donna and Bob's service at the Cornelius Inn exemplifies these characteristics and more. We plan to visit again in the near future. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
