We are return guests and will return to Curly Redwood Lodge again when traveling in California. We were headed south on I-5 and detoured to the coast because of the beauty of the area and we knew we would have a beautiful, comfortable and budget friendly place to stay. The drive to Crescent City from Grant's Pass was a beautiful!... More

We stayed at the Curly Redwood 11 years ago when our oldest was an infant. Last night we stayed again with all 3 kids. Great 2 room suite so Mom and Dad has some privacy. Very retro furnishings and amazing redwood interior and exterior. Room was extremely clean. Will definitely stay again on next road trip!

We stayed at the CRL on a short trip from Medford,OR. The room was very spacious, and since we have two little children, lots of room for them to run around. The room contained 2 queen sized beds, and they were comfortable. There was a nice flat screen TV. Our room had a single shower, but I read that others... More

The sea breeze took my breath away upon entering Crescent City , and the best option upon arrival is to set up at The Curly Redwood. It's got the best views and location in town. And the historic architecture is custom Northern California- from the good ol' logging and fishing lodge days. Rooms are priced very well with super comfy... More

Just go by and see this amazing motel. The redwood is everywhere on the building and it is beautiful 'paneling.' But don't stay here....there are other options in the city! Room was bare bones, no tub, a tiny shower with black mold (!), 50's furniture and the thinest mattress I have ever seen. Unfriendly check in....promised coffee in the morning... More

You can't please everyone and it looks like you might be one. We are a property from the 50s and try to keep it that way, a blast from the past! Our many return and first time customers continue to tell us to never change. We have high end mattresses from Serta that are changed out every 5 years, if... More

Its always interesting to look @ the reviews! My friend suggested I stay here now that I don't have my dog. They ABSOLUTELY do not take pets. You can't even leave your pet in the car in the parking lot! I'm assuming people tried to sneak them in...gold ole Americans! Anyway, the room is the size of 3 Motel 6... More

Four motorcycles which we could park under cover right at the door. The two-room suite has three queen-sized beds and lots of space. Free WiFi. Heat was a bit hard to adjust and remember you share a bathroom for both rooms. However, at $90 for 4 people it was very inexpensive. The fish place across the street makes for an... More

There seems to be plenty of motels in Cresent City and outward appearances might send one to the newer built lodgings. If you are looking for a "route 66" type of motel with a ton of retro, stay at the Curly. It is very clean, terrifiicly priced, $90.00 and a quick in and out location. (I would recommend room 15,...

Rooms are good sized, bath and shower are OK, as often is the case a refresh would be great! Hard to argue with the value for money. Our group enjoyed our stay and we would recommend it. We didn't eat there (actually unsure if there IS a restaurant).

We spent two nights here as we travelled up the California coast. The hotel was built in the 1950s using one curly redwood tree. The wood has been well-maintained and the place really looks nice. It has that cool retro feel, and walking into the room really felt like stepping back in time. The doors even use actual keys -... More
