My wife and I booked a room at the Lighthouse Inn at Crescent City based on recent TripAdvisor reviews. I must have booked the wrong place. While the staff was very friendly and accommodating, the room was terrible. The bedding was very well worn. The blanket on our bed had holes in it and was discusting. I asked and received... More

Checked the reviews for this hotel and were confident that this would been a good choice. For the most part everything was fine. The rooms, linen and beds were a bit old but seemed to be very clean and taken care of. The towels were nice and new, two of everything. However, as I opened up the bath towel after... More

Dear, bonvyaj.... I checked with our desk attendant, site manager and complete housekeeping staff regarding your comment with the towels. No one received notice about this specific issue. We have an impeccable record of cleanliness and all of our towels and bedding are thoroughly cleaned after each use. Even unused towels are gathered for laundry after a guest checks out.... More

I almost missed this motel coming down the highway, for some reason. It kind of sits behind a wall, with a miniature lighthouse right where you turn in. I'm not sure how old the place is, but it can't be that old. It is very well decorated, and has a huge area with tables, etc., downstairs opposite the desk. (It... More

Stayed for 4 nights in early October and was impressed. The staff was very friendly, rooms are large, clean and comfortable and the setting was very quiet. Certainly would stay there again! The hotel is on the coast and isvery close to the Redwoods and the town offers plenty of good dining establishments.

I stayed in what I was told was a standard room and it was absolutely humongous. It had a king bed and a sofa and enough room left over for gymnastics. The room contains a huge counter with a sink separate from the toilet and shower. The rooms have air conditioning, but it's more fun to open the window and... More

After 8 nights visiting the Oregon Coast, this was our 2nd to the last night of our trip. From the very pleasant person at check-in, to the VERY large room on the 3rd floor (elevator), to the nice view of the Marina and lighthouse, this was a great place to rest up!

Greetings, Rod. Firstly, we're sorry that your room was not 100% at the time of check in. This is not a normal occurrence and, even after checking with our housekeeping staff, we're baffled by the gaffe. The shower curtains are removed by housekeeping if they are wet and, usually, replaced off of our service cart. I am glad you at... More

A nice hotel on Hwy 101 right across from the harbor. Large, clean rooms. Friendly staff. All the usual amenities. They have continental free buffet breakfast but nothing hot. Mostly breads and cereals. I would repeat here if I am in the area again. If you have a harbor side room you can hear the fog horn and seals.
