My wife and I visited the Ocean Crest in early July for three days, attached to a business trip to Seattle. The drive is 2 1/2 to 3 hours, and the closer you get the more beautiful it becomes. We have stayed at the Ocean Crest five or six times over the past 20+ years. After our last stay, I read that the top shelf restaurant had burned. That fire did not impact any of the rooms. This time, we stayed on the third floor of the facility (last time, we stayed on the other side of the restaurant complex in a second floor room. The third floor room was perfectly adequate for our needs (coffee maker, microwave, small fridge, small table, sitting chairs, and the view of the beach and the ocean was stunning. A caution, this is a walk-up, so leave the heavy bags at home. The restaurant has always been a highlight, and its absence was felt. Breakfast was available in a restaurant on the former military compound, and this was perfectly adequate. In addition, there is a upscale planned community about 10 minutes south with a restaurant and quite adequate convenience store. Twenty minutes south is Ocean Shores with a casino, grocery store, several restaurants, souvenir stores, etc. Ocean Crest has a good management team, responsive to guests. During the last day we were at Ocean Crest, they began driving piles for a new restaurant. Ocean Crest sits right on the edge of the cliff overlooking the beach and ocean. This is not a location for driving waves and surf, but it is beautiful and peaceful. They are saying the restaurant will reopen in the Spring of 2014. We will be back. Even without the restaurant, this was a great base of operations for getting to the northern Olympic Peninsula, or for just seeing the beauty of this rather remote portion of the Peninsula.
