VERY comfortable bed and love the sheets- so soft! Where do they come from??? Owner was very nice and helpful regarding the area. Listened to the sea lions every evening! Next visit will... More

What a delightful find! The photos don't do justice to the experience. I was a bit unsure of booking a room in a shared building/cabin that looked old. However, it was a wonderful experience. We stayed in Building 7, in a Deluxe Q Suite. Everything in the cabin is top-notch. 2 flat screen tv's; nice setup for coffee/microwave/basic kitchen items;... More

The rooms are separate cabins with kitchen. They are beyond walking distance from town. The cabins we had were nice and clean. The actual buildings were older. My bathroom had a couch in it. Where do you get that? There was wifi. It seemed that all of the hotels are similar in design. And View Crest is the best.

Absolutely wonderful stay in a charming, adorable cabin with a view of the ocean from up on a bluff. We could see the sun set and hear sea lions. We stayed in #4 which has a queen bed. The kitchen was lovely and had the BEST quality pots/pans/utensils that I've ever had in a hotel/motel. Our cottage had a little... More

This family-owned place, right on the coast, was the highlight of our 19-day Western road trip. The owners are friendly, and the cabins are spacious. The location is not to be beat. The Redwoods are a very special place, a blend of ocean, mountains, and of course, tall trees. When we come back this way - and we will --... More

We didn't arrive until late but the room was really nice.. Had everything we needed for an overnight stay. We could hear the sea lions from our room which was cool. Very clean and cozy cabin would definitely stay there again. You could see the ocean in the distance which was also nice.
