We have stayed at the Lighthouse several times and always feel welcome. Good location with view of the harbor from the 3rd floor rooms. Close to restaurants that we like. Not far from a long beach for a nice walk. They have a large breakfast area and start at 6:00 am.

The breakfast was very good with a big selection. The room was quiet. There was a little trash in the hallway. The beds were okay and the room was spacious. We would definitely stay here again. The location was good. There aren't a lot of places to eat nearby. The view of the ocean is from across the street.

As we found no free places in hotels where we are accustomed to stay at time of reservations, we decided to stay in this (for us) independent hotel and we really had a fluke. Rooms are very large, clean, comfortable; bathroom too. Staff is very kind and helpful; We would probably rate this hotel four and half star for the... More

Traveling with another couple and needed rooms for one night. Clean, large rooms, and very affordable. The chain hotels were very pricey. The staff were helpful. Breakfast was good. Staff recommended a very good restaurant within walking distance. Located close to the Redwood State and National Parks.

Located on the 101 hwy, but yet very quiet. our King room was huge! Clean and very inviting. Front desk is helpfull and we got lots of info regarding wild fires and closed roads. A good restaurant is located about 50 feet from the hotel. It's a good value for money. We had a very good evenibg and night there.

We were traveling through town, shocked at the prices of most big name hotels (very expensive). Stopped at the lighthouse on a whim. Great prices (way cheaper than the others) clean HUGE room, quiet, staff was amazing. The only thing I thought was strange is the free continental breakfast consisted of bagels cereal and donuts. No hot meats of any... More

The hotel was clean, quiet and well maintained. Comfortable enough beds. Breakfast was so-so. Wifi did not work in the room but fine in the lobby. Price was high for what you got but that's the norm for the area in the high season.

This was a very nice hotel. It sits just across the road from the harbor in Crescent City. The room was large, light, clean and quiet. The bed was very comfortable.

I chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews. The town of Crescent is a little hard to figure out. Kinda Shady and after reading some more reviews afterwards. I was correct in following my instincts. I didn't feel super safe here but the hotel was clean, had free breakfast and I could not hear one single thing in the... More
