I stayed at the Crest for 2 nights with my boyfriend, and you definitely can't beat the value or the view overall. It was clean, but the room was tiny, the fridge was in desperate need of defrosting (the variation in temperature destroyed most of the food I brought), and it did smell a bit manky. The carpets are in... More

We book an annual family vacation to Ashland and ALWAYS stay at the Crest. The people who run it are wonderful, the rooms are comfortable & clean, access to the bike trail is great, and the views are simply AMAZING! We wouldn't stay anywhere else!

After visiting the Apostle Islands, we decided to stay in Ashland. On a Sunday night, some of the hotels were surprisingly expensive. We stopped at the Crest Motel, and the prices were more than half of some of the others. The room itself was nice, though nothing spectacular. The wireless Internet did not work particularly well. The real benefit to... More

What a find! My husband and I stayed here based on reviews I read. Even though the motel is on the main highway to Bayfield, it is very quiet at night. The lake view is gorgeous both in the evening for the sunset and in the morning for the sunrise. Enjoying the sunrise with a cup of coffee is priceless... More

I've stayed here many times when traveling in that area. You can't beat the view. We have always had a perfect stay, clean comfortable rooms, very friendly people, and priced very reasonable. Just love the area with the "Big Lake" at your feet. Can't wait to go back up there!

My mother and I stayed one night and we were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the rooms. First of all, the price is excellent. Second, the rooms were very clean and actually smelled clean!! No smokey smell or anything like that. The couch in the room looked quite new. The rest of the decor/furniture was dated but clean and... More

I was on vacation traveling through the UP with some friends on our way to Minnesota. We had driven past some other motels until we came apon the Crest and we all agreed that the Crest was the place we wanted to stay at. The view was beautiful and it reminded all of us of home. As soon as we... More
