This is a better-than-average budget motel with surprisingly reasonable rates, particularly considering that it’s sandwiched between the Redwood National Park and the canyons of the Wild and Scenic Smith River. (It has a Crescent City address, but it’s 10 miles from town.) My room was squeaky clean, freshly painted and the bed above average for this price room.( Photo 1) It has a microwave, in-room coffee and free wif-fi, but no hair dryer. The TV remote didn’t work, and there’s no pool. But why watch TV when magnificent ancient redwood forests are practically at your doorstep? (photo 2) Why swim in a tiny chlorinated pool when the clear, cool emerald depths of the Smith River are a two minute drive? (photo 3) Rugged is coastline is 15 miles away. (photo 4) Single in July was $50 flat, taxes included. Reservations by phone only, I think. Oh, and drink the tap water. Live here and you’ll never need bottled water again.
