“Stinky. Good for smokers.”
Reviewed 8 June 2009

We stayed here based on price. Will not do so again. Yes, the lobby was good and they do have a computer for use by patrons. The management was nice, but didn't smell anything when I complained about the room (and had nothing to move us to). The room reeked of smoke; not just an odor, but absolutely reeked.

I turned on the a/c hoping to rid the room of smell, and a gross smell (dirty socks?) came from it. It didn't resolve. Was the room clean? It appeared to be so. But having to sleep with your door cracked open to breathe doesn't feel very safe.

If you're not sensitive to smell or you're a chain-smoker, you won't beat the price. For the rest of us, there are better options.

Reviewed 20 May 2009

This place was the cheapest place I could find in Port Angeles by a fair amount. I was on the second floor in a nice sized room Queen bed, desk, refrig, micro, lots of TV channels and wifi.

The motel and room are well worn but the room was fairly clean with the exception of one of the chairs which had a permanent looking stain on it (just laid one of the towels on it when I used it). I don't blame them for that as someone else obviously ruined that chair. The bed wasn't that great but got the job done.

AC/heater unit had a funky smell- enough that I decided I didn't want to run it but fortunately it was still warm enough with the covers that I didn't need it.

For a place to sleep this does the job, anything more and you should probably look at another property.

i stayed here for a week in august because it was the cheapest place to stay in port angeles, other than travellers motel which had no vacancies at the time. i was pleasantly surprised. the room was large and clean with a desk, 2 chairs, microwave, refridgerator, air conditioner/heater, and cable tv with 70 channels. there was also a computer for guest's use in the lobby. the breakfast was very good- cereals, very good coffee , orange juice and a selection of breads and pastry. but one morning the pastries were gone so get there early!! the motel was 2 blocks from the waterfront and convenient to the road to olympic national park. it was quiet and comfortable there. the owner seemed tired and not very outgoing but was always available to answer questions, give restaurant advice, etc. the rate was very low compared to comparable motels in town. would recommend a stay here.

Reviewed 12 August 2008

We had a room with a king size bed, so got no fridge or microwave. The internet doesn't work in a couple of rooms, including ours, so the manager was very accomodating, and gave us a modem, which worked great. The T.V. is very small, but good picture, and no in-room coffee. The other reviews are correct in that the area is sketchy, but the rooms are o.k. Our friends had a one-Queen-bed room, and the carpet was much dirtier than ours, which looked almost new. All rooms are on the second floor. We also noticed the smoke smell in the office, though it's supposed to be non-smoking here.

  • Liked — Close to the Victoria B.C ferry terminal
  • Disliked — The area is busy , and seedy.

Accommodations very average, clean, noise level from street more than I like but not severe. Located on main thoroughfare and easy to find. Only complaint I had was the condition of the mattresses. Beds were satisfactory but could use replacing. Sorry, don't remember the room # we had but it was in the back on lower level. Cost was $58.00 for the night. Completely ok if one is to be out and about doing site seeing, etc., for the day. Decor below average and pretty basic.

Reviewed 24 June 2008

Looked for an affordable hotel/motel in Port Angeles, but most properties were well over $100. Only needed one night and chose the Aircrest Motel.

Location seemed to be in a sketchy area (lots of closed buildings nearby) and certainly not in the "bustling" part of town, but was close to the ferry and restaurants.

This is a small family-run property and they recently remodeled the room interiors (but couldn't tell from the exterior). If you're looking for the Westin, this isn't the place for you. If you need a clean, quiet place to spend a night, this will be fine. Although lobby smells of cigarette smoke, rooms are all no-smoking.

Rooms were clean. Hair dryer not in room, but owner provided one upon request. Small continental breakfast provided in the morning.

  • Liked — affordable price
  • Disliked — neighborhood a little sketchy, but safe
