“Super nice time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

This is a clean, comfortable, quiet place, even though it is on 101.
Staff was helpful, friendly and assisted in local restaurants. You can walk to many restaurants and stores.
Great breakfast, simple fare but upgraded muffins and doughnuts, good choice of juices.
Definitely worth the cost.

Crescent City California is truly just a stop over in Northern California. That being said, I cannot say one bad thing about this hotel. Clean, great service. Room was large with seating area and a large counter area with small refrigerator, microwave. The bathroom was obviously just renovated. I felt like I was the first one to use it. Not top notch anything, but clean and new. Breakfast was minimal. Quick breads, bagels, cereal, coffee, juices, hard boiled eggs. Nothing hot. Well maintained, older hotel, with great front staff, and breakfast service. Only 79$.

We stopped here after two weeks on the road (part of a six week trip) and were so pleased with everything! From the moment we walked in the door we were treated as visiting friends. Lovely establishment, clean and comfortable room with all the amenities, a laundry that only cost 75 cents a load, and directions to see George the sea lion. We had a restful and quiet night and breakfast was very good as well. Cereals, fruits, hard-boiled eggs, all kinds of coffee and teas, a wide assortment of breads and pastries, and a gracious young woman who kept it all ship-shape and clean. Highly recommend it, even if it doesn't have a pool! And the restaurants next door were very good, too, and easy to walk to.

Please note this upfront: This hotel does not have a pool or fitness center. So if you have kids wanting to swim or you want a workout, this hotel probably is not for you. On the other hand, if you want a quiet and clean hotel with an ocean view, a great rate, and a friendly staff, then this hotel is probably what you would want.

This is a "local" hotel, not one of those chain establishments. There is no covered drive thru or automatic doors, an indicator of an older hotel. Had 2 luggage carts available. Enter into a nice size lobby with 2 leather sofas and 2 leather chairs for seating. Nicely decorated with lighthouses and miniature Victorian houses. Has 3 floors with 1 elevator. Wi-Fi available and a computer in a private business center. Had 2 washers and 2 dryers in the laundry area.

Our room with a king bed was very spacious and very clean. Enter with a "real" key. Kind of miss those days gone by. A guest book informed us about the hotel and area. Had a leather sofa with lamp, round table with 2 chairs, 2 night stands with wall lights, 4 drawers for storage, clock, fridge, microwave, iron and ironing board, coffee/tea, and an old style TV with a good channel lineup. One bad note was the blanket on the bed had a burn hole in it. The bed was a little firmer than we are used to.

There was a long vanity and mirror outside the shower/tub and stool area. Had hair dryer, an exhaust fan, heat lamp, and 1 towel bar in each area. Liked the fluffy wash cloths and towels. The shower had very good pressure.

Complimentary breakfast was continental style. No meat and only hard-boiled eggs. Only had whole milk. Had pastries, toast and jelly, cereals, fruit, juices, and good coffee. Used fiberboard for plates and bowls but not for cups. A rather small dining area with only 15 seats available.

Guest card says, " Nicest place for the best price". Couldn't argue with this.

Was a little disappointed when we left. There were 4 staff smoking right outside the door. Don't like the smell of smoke.

We would return on the next trip through the area.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room. No elevator, so ask for 1st floor room if you have a handicap issue.

Large, clean, room. Even though on main drag, very quiet. Desk staff very helpful. Breakfast area in lobby very comfortable and includes protein (hard-boiled eggs). Recommended restaurant next door (Northwoods) for dinner really is excellent. Fresh!

At first it's your typical motel, then we checked in. Got our keys (see photo) and headed to the elevator. Our third floor room was one of the biggest rooms I've seen in the last few years. SUPER quiet, brand new shower insert/fixtures and VERY clean. Looks like they're in the process of replacing older décor but some bits (the bathroom formica for instance) reminded me of road trips from my youth. Exceptionally nice staff (maybe family owned & operated?)-were the quick breads they offered for the continental breakfast homemade? Anyway, from the Blues Brother art piece in the lobby to the miniature Victorian era houses, it was good, old fashioned hospitality.

Room Tip: The only ice machine I saw was on the first floor, near lobby. Get your ice before you get in your j...

First visit to this hotel, we will go back. The lobby is interesting, from the decoration, furnishing and staff. All great. The rooms are spacious and clean. It is fun to be by the harbor. We enjoyed watching the antic's of the sea lions and other things like the fishing fleet etc.
