Aircrest Motel
Ranked #14 of 16 Hotels in Port Angeles
Reviewed 18 September 2009

You are greeted by a rather gruff live-in manager in a room that reeks of cigarette smoke. that sort of sets the tone. The place is right next door to Walgreens and is in between the two major roads going in and out of town. Definitely now a view property... I had booked a queen and was told "it's actually a double, that's why the rate was reduced online." Well, OK, but why not call it a double online then? When I got to the room, I actually mistook the flat screen TV for a picture on the wall because it was so small. Tiny! Room was very sparse and mattress was a well worn brick. On a positive note, it is about as close to the Hurricane Ridge access road as you can get in PA. It's a cheap roadside motel and there are a lot of them in PA. It's fine if you have low expectations, but there are a number of far superior options that show better management.

a little smelly, not of smoke though, but fine after that. aired out the room with the fan and isn't too terrible. the other motels for the same price looked far scarier. TV and Internet good.

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.

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.

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.
