Historical hotel located in historical Eureka, Northern California
Located in Humboldt County in Northern California, the Eureka Inn is a recognized historical artifact, having been added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. Guests staying at the 2-star property can expect a lofty air of nostalgia and antiquity as they stay in the Redwood building.
Featuring large rooms with redwood beams, the hotel is a fine example of traditional Elizabethan Tudor Architecture. As with several properties in the town of Eureka, CA, the hotel would not be out of place in Great Britain.
Having undergone an extensive and sympathetic six-year refurbishment, the Inn now consists of 50 guestrooms each of which is fitted with a range of modern facilities. As well as en-suite bathroom facilities, guests can expect to find a LCD television with cable/satellite channels, wireless internet connectivity, clock radio, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, telephone, and free local calls.
Each room offers an intriguing and picturesque view, including pool, courtyard, mountain, water, and city sights. Guests can enjoy a cooked breakfast each morning in the Bristol Rose Caf, whilst a number of restaurants and cafs can be found in nearby Old Town. A bar and lounge offers a venue for an entertaining evening or a quiet afternoon.
Guests at the Eureka Inn will find this particular part of California rather unique and unexpected. The town of Eureka, which itself is considered a historic place, has an almost old world feel to it, with many of its building resembling the traditional architecture associated with the hotel itself.
The Richard Sweasey Theater offers an early 20th Century feel to its building. It also houses the Eureka Symphony, just one of many cultural elements of the small city. Known for its artists, Eureka features many murals, and also hosts a monthly arts festival in which many of the local businesses and shops open their doors and act as exhibition galleries.
The city also plays host to a wide range of festivals and events, which can be as diverse as the Kinetic Structure Race and the Excalibur Medieval Tournament and Market Faire.
A number of green spaces are also available for visitors to enjoy, including the Eureka Marsh and Humboldt Botanical Garden. Sequoia Park Zoo and Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge offer the opportunity for tourists to enjoy a varied range of flora and fauna.
Other popular attractions in the city include Eureka Municipal Golf Course, the Six Rivers National Forest, and a host of museums.
Visitors willing to venture outside of the city can enjoy the Northern California coastline, which is rich with beaches, cliff faces, and natural vegetative landscapes. Mountains form a backdrop to the east, whilst famous Route 101 will take travelers north to Oregon or south to San Francisco and the rest of Californias most famous tourist destinations.
The town marina offers guests at the Eureka Inn the opportunity to venture out onto the Pacific Ocean for a recreational afternoon. From whale watching to deep sea fishing, by way of a romantic deck-top meal, yacht and boat launches offer a number of enjoyable activities.
