Just what we needed to break up the long drive. This place is basic, but it's dependable and clean and the staff is friendly. The ocean view is rather far away, but it's still soothing to wake up to that view. Easy in and out. Free wi-fi. Our only complaint is that the walls are a little thin and they... More

Stayed here on the rating of being #1 in Crescent City. Friendly staff & helpful. Rooms were large & clean. Decor makes the whole place look older than it really is. Average breakfast was also offered. The prices are what is so great. The place was pretty full on our visit.

This hotel was my first choice due to reviews from this site and others. It's a little hard to view this hotel unless you go to its own website. It's close to the beach but not on the beach as the name suggests. This is not exactly a problem,just an observation. The beach is close though approximately a 5 min.... More

We stayed on the third floor with an ocean view thru a window not a sliding glass door or patio so you could only enjoy the view if you got out of your chair to see it. The room was average and a bit dated with old looking bedspreads from days gone by. The breakfast as ok but nothing special.... More

Greetings, Superagent84! Bed firmness is such a personal choice (sans Goldilocks and the three bears) that we try hit the middle. Our beds are constantly changed to ensure guest comfort; however, beds will appear too soft for some and too firm for others. We do appreciate your business and hope you'll consider us again when traveling from Idaho. We'd love... More

Friendly staff. Front desk open to large spacious sitting and breakfast area. The sitting area has several sailing ships to view. All are unique to look at. Rooms are clean and welcoming. We had third floor rooms facing the ocean. Terrific view. Be sure to ask for an ocean view room. Third floor views are even better. Elevators available. We... More

My husband and I stayed at the Ocean View Inn and Suites in Crescent City as we made our way through visiting the Redwoods in Northern California. It's hard to pick a random hotel in a small town when you know nothing about it. We feel like we made a good choice with the Ocean View. Joanie was working the... More

First impressions were very good. Very well kept facility, clean room, friendly staff. I would have given this a five, except for one major thing. We had a ground floor room that had a disabled person accessible bathroom. I noticed that the tile floor did not appear to have the proper slope back to the shower, this allowed water to... More

Hi, Pete. It would be helpful to know which room you stayed. The bathroom in our ADA suite is fully ADA compliant and we've not had issues with excessive water in the past. It would be most helpful to know the date of your stay and your name so we can look at the specific room in which you and... More

Given the name, I was expecting a view of the ocean. Luckily, I brought my binoculars. The hotel has three floors. The only rooms with a view of the ocean, which is across a road and about 1/4 mile away, are the even numbered rooms on 3rd floor. During our stay those rooms were all booked and we stayed on...

Hi, jsc0tt. Sorry the view of the ocean was not as close as you had hoped. We do have an unobstructed view of the ocean on most the second and third floor rear-facing rooms. Perhaps, if you come back our way, we can be sure you'll up on the 3rd floor! We'll do our level best to ensure a guest's... More
