During one of my road trips, I needed to call it a night. Although I wish this hotel had been closer to the ocean, it served my basic needs on a short notice.The clerk, Toni, was very nice and offered a room on the first floor in the next building. It was spacious and clean.The furniture is outdated but as... More

My kids and I recently had to be displaced from our home while we looked for another one. So we had to book an extended stay. The front desk people were super friendly and kind, which lightened the load of our stressful ordeal. The house keeping crew was also very friendly and respectful and cleaned around our belongings. We had... More

My car broke down in the middle of nowhere and this nice family dropped me off at the gas station right across the street from Bay View Inn. I took a chance and they had a room for me. The staff were extremely nice and very helpful. Got a good rate and the place was very clean. I thought I... More

Outdated Old Hotel, has basic essentials, no view of beach, no air conditioning, large clean rooms, distant view of bay, a lot of families stay, some noise at night. Stayed here because of restaurant next door within walking distance, which was also a disappointment.

We stayed three nights in the Bayview Inn, which is a reasonably priced & relatively modern 3-story motel located on Highway 101 just at the south end of Crescent City. Check in was smooth & efficient, all the staff we had contact with during our stay were friendly and helpful. Rooms are good sized, clean & well equipped with fridge,... More

First off, there are 4 cars in the lot that have been there so long that leaves and dirt have collected under the airless, flat tires. The rooms make you feel like you are renting a person's home. There is no chain lock on the door and while it has a basic lock, the door is loose and could be... More

Greetings, Lee. Thanks for letting us know your thoughts regarding your recent stay with us in Crescent City. Sorry that your experience didn't match that of so many other satisfied guests. We no longer have chains on the doors due to a new electronic deadbolt mechanism that has been proven to be many times more secure when engaged correctly. Guest... More

Husband and son on a guy's "camping" road trip in our little truck. They got caught in pouring rain. Sleeping bags and clothes all wet. So Mom, back at home, finds Bay View on the Internet. Joanie was so nice and trusting. She held a room, without a credit card, until I called back with a plan. When the guys... More

Howdy, KarefulShopper! What a great story and we appreciate you sharing it with the rest of the TripAdvisor community of travelers. Sometimes the "guys" can use a little Glamping now and then too; especially when Mother Nature pops up for a show!

I visit Crescent City and I ALWAYS stay at the Bay View Inn. The staff is so warm and welcoming and the rooms are immaculate and the view of the ocean is absolutely gorgeous! I'd without a doubt recommend this place to anyone.
