My partner and I traveled there at the end on September this year. We had a really pleasant experience, the owner was hospitable, respectful and professional. It was a clean property and quiet, too. We stayed for a weekend the turn down cleaning service was well done. We could hear the seals in the morning which was great the ocean... More

"Not impressed at all. The camping area is among some nice trees but the ground is just dirt and you are sleeping beside Highway 101. In addition the shower facilities were dirty and poorly maintained. The hot water did work OK. My impression is the owners just don't care about campers. The sink outside provided for washing up was rusty... More

We spent two nights here in August, as a base to see some of the coast and the Redwoods. We lucked out as Trinidad was a lovely little town - small but friendly people with a wonderful restaurant down by the pier and good grocery store (Murphy's). We had a cottage with two rooms and a hot tub. The cottage... More

We stayed two nights at View Crest Lodge. The room - #7 - had recently been redone. It was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed eating breakfast and dinner on the front porch. We were lower on the hill so didn't have a beach view, but could hear the seals barking. A delightful home base for exploring the redwoods and the... More

We spent two nights in one of the larger units and thought it was great. There is a full kitchen, a separate bedroom where the kids slept, and another queen-size bed in the large living room (a reason for four stars instead of a perfect five is that the mattress was so hard, neither of us slept well). The bathroom... More

We stayed at the View Crest Lodge # 7 at the end of July, 2014. The area is beautiful, but the room was really dusty and smelled like mold. We pulled down the sheets and found ants in the bed. We called the office, and the manager showed up to our room quickly. He brought us extra linen and was... More

We stayed in cottage 1b. The view across the road to the ocean was lovely and this property is located near the parks and the town of Trinidad. It is a typical beach rental. There is a slight musty odor in the room but ample windows to open and eliminate it. The room was age worn but clean- although I... More

I have to say, I've stayed at this location one other time years ago and was impressed, but this time couldn't have been more perfect! I was in room #7 and it was lovely! The French doors opening out onto the large patio was heaven. I just left the doors open and let the sea air in. I sat out... More

Given the lodging choices in Trinidad, I think this is a good choice for the price, despite my "average" rating. My comments apply specifically for cabin #7 (one of the two "economy" cabins); the other cabins may be (and almost certainly are) different. Pluses: Heater worked well, management very friendly and helpful, roomy cabin with mini-fridge, small microwave, a few... More

This was an overnight stay on a road trip, and the duplex cabin was very quiet, and clean, and well maintained. The birds on the patio were the loudest noises, and a joy. We really enjoyed the quiet, serene setting at the View Crest Lodge. It seems to a privately owned lodging facility. We would highly recommend it.
