My husband, two teens, and I stayed at the lighthouse for two nights as part of a Coastal trip from LA to Seattle. The Lighthouse Inn is not the fanciest motel, but it is spotless and the rooms are spacious. The staff is friendly, and the free breakfast was perfect for us. They serve coffee, tea, bagels and English muffins,... More

Nothing wrong with this place at all. Room in the back is very quiet. Front desk was very helpful. Room is VERY large, which is great...bed, arm chairs, table and chairs, fridge, micro. Room is clean. Its just missing some things that I like in a hotel...sheers on the windows, a screen on the window so we could open it,... More

Besides fishing I don't think there is a lot to do in Crescent City, so it's a bit surprising to see fifteen different hotels and motels along a half-mile stretch of Highway 101 --- but I was using the town as an overnight stop for a long distance drive up & back from central Oregon, and this seems to be...

Stayed two nights here during our Redwoods trip. This proved to be a sufficient place to call home base. Two room suite was nice for family of four. Hotel was clean and quiet enough, even though it was right on the highway. Short drive to Redwoods hikes and scenic drives.

Big spacious room very well maintained for an older hotel, staff was great and breakfast was fine for continental. Would stay again. It's a small town and most of the properties seem run down. The location across from the marina was nice and everything is easy to get to. Great starting place for the Redwoods.

First time here and was not disappointed. Got a great rate and the room was clean and very large. Check in staff was excellent. Provided breakfast was OK. Great restaurant next door serving excellent dinners. Will go back.

I really liked this hotel. It has a vintage feel. If you are looking for an cozy nights stay this place is it! We were given an actual key for our room. Sounds weird but todays hotels give a card to open your door, this was like going home to grandmas. The room was clean, the bathroom was immaculate. Breakfast... More

We stayed in the two room suite. Both rooms were quite large, so didn't feel cramped at all. Plentiful towels, which was really nice. Located right on the highway, but the rooms were well sound insulated (both for internal and external noise), so we didn't hear much road noise. Plenty of power outlets around the room, much better than some... More
