“Ocean view hotel”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

Showed up late afternoon on a Wednesday with no reservations and we were greeted kindly. Got an oceanfront room with a balcony ($169) which i felt was a good price for the location and being a touristy town & the view was awesome. Room is nice, comfy, clean and roomy. Chairs are on the balcony. There is a lighthouse you can view from your room & visit during low tide. Small town, easy to get around in. There's area several restaurants, but the hotel referred us to Charts by the harbor. It was pretty good food, kind of bland, but hey I'm from Texas and expect some spice. Best part of harbor....the seals and sealions that are laying out on the floats. Hester had a good cont' breakfast and they're remodeling to add a lounge area w bar...looks like it will be nice. Free wifi!

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony :)

We love the beautiful ocean view and comfy beds. Rate is affordable, $149 for a suite with free breakfast. The breakfast is tasteful. A nice new bar. The employees at the hotel are very friendly and professional. This hotel is the best hotel in terms of services and value.

This is one of the most beautiful hotels on the west coast. We love the spacious room on the ocean front. The hotel employees are very friendly and helpful. The room rate is affordable-$149 for a suite with free breakfast.

Room Tip: South side has better views

We are from New York City and over the years have stayed in many upscale ocean front hotels on the east coast. This summer we decided to take our children to tour the west coast from San Diego to Seattle. After visiting San Diego and San Francisco we stopped at Crescent City to visit the Redwoods Park. Hotels in Crescent City are mostly on the roadside and very rundown. We decided to visit the famous Battery Point Lighthouse before we continued our journey to the next town to find a nice hotel to stay in for the night. To our surprise, we found a very modern hotel at the end of Front St. which leads to the Lighthouse in Crescent City. We walked into the lobby of the hotel and found the ocean in front us. We noticed that the hotel had just built a new beautiful bar. The friendly front desk clerks were told us that the hotel would open a seaside restaurant very soon. They offered us $149 rate for our family of four including free breakfast. The room was very clean and comfy. The breakfast was much better than we had expected. We usually pay over $250 for a similar ocean front hotel on the east coast. We think that this hotel has been undervalued. The hotel is on the edge of the ocean and the view of giant rocks in the ocean with rolling crashing waves is unsurpassed.

Our stay at the Oceanfront Lodge was okay. The room was nice; everything was clean, etc. The balcony view was amazing. The Pacific was literally at our window. The balcony itself was creaky & rickety, so my husband refused to stand on it long. The hotel was pretty quiet, which was good. The bed was soft, and the shower was clean. Breakfasts were typical free continental style and also par for the course. We did find outside doors propped open or unlocked multiple times. With the access key readers, which worked, I wasn't sure why the building was left unsecured, especially with the high number of wandering/hiker/homeless people walking around town. The free wifi did not work, and there was never any ice in the machines. My husband had to go buy it for our hiking trips, which was a bit ridiculous. Functioning ice machines and wifi are expectations these days. There was a lot of construction going on, which never bothered us. I think once renovations are done, it'll be nice. Maybe they just have too much going on with renovations, causing the quality of normal ameninities to suffer. They should add screen doors to the balconies in the renovations. Sleeping with the sound of the ocean would have been nice, but leaving the door open let bugs in, so we couldn't do that at night. Overall, again, it was just okay. It could be so much better w/ the location and Hampton bones of the building. The staff also seemed very uninterested in us. Except for the construction man, I never saw an adult working anywhere; they all looked like they were in their teens or early 20s. They didn't really greet us ever, unless we directly addressed them, or know anything helpful about the area. For what we paid, I'd try other places before returning.

We Cancelled OUR Room due to illness and our card was still charged. To top it off we were told 180/nt and they charged us 257.00. We were givin a refund and the owner's wife charged our card again because she wanted to see a doctor's note that we were sick, can you say hippa...The receptionist gave me the owner's phone number, I called. He told me when you book a plane ticket you do not get a refund if you are sick and hung up on me. You can not base a refund off of an airplane ticket. My bank had to file a fraudulent claim on this business. The owners are foriegners and do not understand the US laws of running a business. Do not stay here or or give them your credit card info!!!

Our family enjoyed the view and the sounds of the waves crashing in. The hotel was redoing their lobby and it's going to be great. However, when I got back home, there was a $15.99 charge for a movie on my credit card that we did not order/watch. The movie was started around midnight and I assured the lady we never order movies from a hotel (seriously - $15.99) and that our family had all lights out before it was even dark outside. We are use to Central Time so midnight in Pacific Time is 2 a.m. our time. After trying to be polite and letting her know there was no way we would of watched the movie, I was told, per the owner, the computer showed differently and they would not credit the charge. Poor customer service and no desire to go back.

Room Tip: If you stay here, take the time to checkout with the front desk in the morning so you are not surpri...
