“Friendly service, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

We spent one night here in a large room with a harbor view. The room was large and reasonable comfortable if a bit outdated. The front desk staff person at check in was as efficient, friendly, and helpful as I have ever met, from giving directions to offering dining suggestions (and there aren't many places to choose from in Crescent City!) The breakfast was just right - bagels, fruit, juice, hard boiled eggs. I would stay here again when stopping in Crescent City.

We chose to stay here while driving the coasts of California and Oregon. It is right on Highway 101, making Crescent City a good place to stop.The reviews were good. Had a cute lobby with lighthouses. Our room was very nice with 2 beds, 2 couches and a view that looked out over the harbor. The room was gigantic! Lots of space, very clean. Everything in it was a trip back to the 70's.The big tv, and even the old cord dial telephones. The beds were just ok. Really need new mattresses and some overall updating. But it was a nice place, safe and clean.
We drove around Crescent City, and found a quaint lighthouse and beach with a lot of driftwood.
Breakfast was the usual; lots of carbs. A decent place to stop on a road trip.

While visiting redwood country, we stayed in the two-room suite at this motel for one night. The main downside to our stay was that the air conditioner in the bedroom could not be used because there was incorrect wiring in the wall. The motel really needs to fix a problem like this in order to provide a good level of comfort for guests. Fortunately the very friendly staff person gave us a box fan to use in the room, and we were able to crack the window open a little bit, although we didn't want to open it too much because of being on the main floor right next to the parking lot. The air conditioner in the main room did work, and the room was clean and spacious.

The night desk staff person was very friendly and helpful with recommending things to see and do in the area and local restaurants (Check out Stout Redwood Grove where Return of the Jedi was filmed, Pebble Beach where you'll find agates and quartz, Crescent and Enderts beaches where you'll find sand dollars, and the sea lions off of the Anchor Way harbor area.). He highly recommended Northwoods Restaurant a couple doors down for good seafood. We ended up trying the Good Harvest Café next to that restaurant instead and had excellent seafood and service.

The motel's continental breakfast was excellent, with quite a few options for fruit, carb, and protein items, including hard-boiled eggs.

The spacious room made for a very comfortable stay. The hotel and room was very clean, great staff, very reasonable rate, and comfortable bed. We had read the reviews and were not disappointed. Would be a nice place for a family, too.

We checked in K C gave us great ideas for food and activities. We had only planned to stay for two nights and the hotel was so great we added a day. The bed was amazing. Our 22 month old son had his own room. He had a fever the front desk procured orange and apple juice even though the breakfast items were put away. The restauraunt right next door amazing also. It is a quiet hotel. We used the laundry facility 75 cents a wash and 1 dollar to dry amazing. Thank you for making the last leg of our trip unforgettable!

Room Tip: Get the two room suite if you have kids. Well worth it!

The hotel was much better than expected for a small, remote town. If you're going to the Redwood Forest, this is a great location to stay. Clean, large rooms and very friendly staff. The only negatives were the directions from Google and Yahoo were to their previous location so we had a difficult challenge finding the hotel late in the evening ... and the towels were old & dated - very thin by most standards today! Again, the hotel is much better than others in small towns.

Room Tip: Pick the top floor if possible - on the backside, away from the highway.

This hotel was on a short list from the Crescent City Visitors' Center, and I called from the center's parking lot. I was given clear directions, and we were there in five minutes. The desk clerk was wonderful, told us all about the tsunami that had ripped through a couple of years ago, etc. the room was comfortable with a microwave and refrigerator, breakfast included. A definite recommendation!
