Located directly on a rocky and picturesque beach, this hotel was a pleasant surprise. It's clean, very nicely situated, decent rooms and a full array of amenities. It's a short walk from the Battery Lighthouse (definitely take the tour), and a short drive to scenic Pebble Beach Drive (go all the way to Point St. George). The Redwoods are on... More

Great location but terrible management. Warning, be very careful while checking your bill. Significant over charges, wrong room, amazingly poor management. Staff does not smile, ever. Please check your credit card statement carefully after visiting here. Spectacular location but too many trust issues. First floor rooms had ants. This could be a great place but management / ownership must change.... More

I agree with other reviews that this place has the potential to be very good. It's in a beautiful location. The interior and features were utilitarian to the point of being depressing. The lighting and bathroom was almost like that of a hospital. The room itself, just plain. There was sand in our bed from a previous guest and the... More

All the other places in Crescent City are along the very noisy main highway. This place fronts the sea and the historic 1856 lighthouse that functions still. The room was clean but worn. The food was copious but uninspiring. The wine choices dismal. The view and the price ($129) made up for the other qualities.

This place is not what it was advertised as. It is definitely not worth the price. There is obvious maintenance that has been deferred or poorly attempted. Electrical outlets that don't work and ants all over the bathroom. I would not recommend this place to anyone!

The location & view absolutely incredible, but issues with housekeeping & bookkeeping gave this place a poor rating. The bed, shower, toilet, & sink were clean, but there were smears on the walls, cobwebs, & dirty windows. The silverware in the breakfast area was not properly washed. The pool was gross & spa uninviting. The sugar ants paid us a... More

For years, the Oceanfront Lodge (formerly Hampton Inn) was my go-to hotel when on Crescent City for business. Then, it started to go downhill. On my last stay: 1. The cable in my room didn't work. I was told there was a new cable provider and they were coming back the day I was leaving to finish their installation. Funny,... More

Not a good value. We stayed in a jacuzzi suite, hoping for a quiet romantic evening. The room was infested with ants. The bed was cheap and uncomfortable with springs poking us all night. The hotel needs a good cleaning even the elevator was filthy. My husband had to clean the sliding glass door so we could enjoy the ocean... More
