“Very friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Stayed one night & had a massive king sized ocean view room with a jacazzuzi hot tub. Bed was very comfortable. Agree with what others have said about the bathroom counter top but with only 2 in the room it wasn't really a problem. Laundry facilities which was good & breakfast was certainly adequate continental breakfast. We also ate at the Good Harvest Restaurant - what a great meal. Would certainly recommend this place to stay.

Crescent City does not have luxury hotels and restaurants. That being said, my stay here was great! The service and cleanliness were top notch. As others have stated, it is not decorated like a Hampton Inn or other chain comparable. It is privately owned, charming, unique and the rooms are huge. We had a 3 queen room for our party of 5. Another group stayed at the Best Western and oh my- the rooms are teenie tiny in comparison. Perhaps some things, like Formica bathroom counter tops might not take the beating of the general public in time, but I have a feeling it will be readily addressed when it wears. Breakfast was great with the best apple fritters I ever had! The eating area is decorated nice and choices are adequate for the inclusive price. Sofas and a large flat screen in the lobby make nice places to converse over coffee or tea. Plenty of parking which is not so true of other motels in the area. I would stay here again.

New and pretty motel. Bathroom has a very strange configuration with the large vanity and sink running into the bedroom. No chance of turning on a light early without walking everyone in the room. Nice staff.

Great location on Hwy 101; easy to find, and super close to maybe the best restaurant in town- Good Harvest- and right next to the aquarium. It's less than a year old and owned by the same owners as the LightHouse and Bay View Inn. It's listed on TA as a B&B; it's not, and the owners are trying to fix that with TA. Despite what I'd call early 90's decor throughout, the place is spanking clean everywhere. The rooms are big, open with a couch, chair with giant countertops, fridge, micro, coffee maker and cute, warm, kitschy fake fireplace. The beds are new and comfy, the view out the back is of the bay, and if your lucky, you can listen to the fog horn cycle through (we liked that). I can't speak for the hwy side rooms, but the bay view side was very quiet. Great free, strong wifi. Breakfast is free and nothing fancy (needs yogurt!). I hope they can maintain their current level of super clean as they grow, and transition from the flowery old-style bedspreads to easy to clean top sheets. We stayed there two nights, king room, bay side, with taxes included for $97/night. Very helpful staff- thanks! Would stay again.

Room Tip: Of course you'd want a bay view room! Ask for it.

We had a spacious and attractive room with a great view of the harbor. The desk staff is unusually friendly and helpful, and there is a pretty good Mexican restaurant right across the street. Compared to a lot of new hotels, the breakfast is pretty basic, but I would look forward to staying here again.

Room Tip: Best rooms are on the west side of the third floor because of the view.

After driving around Crescent City and trying to decide on which hotel to stay we chose the Ocean View Inn. It was very affordable, we stayed in the jacuzzi suite (why not) but it was pretty empty so I don't know if we would have payed in season prices. The room was clean, the front desk was very friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed our stay. The breakfast wasn't much to look at but again it was off season so we didn't expect much. We would return again for sure. Plus our three year old loved listening to the frogs in the evening and the sea lions in the morning.

This place is very new (july 2012) and the photos are true - who would have thought model ships and daggy floral wallpaper trim had a place in a new development?!!! That said it is very new and clean, wuality rooms and beds and for us had the extra benefit of 2 bedroom "suites" (used loosely) which many other places don't have - there are only so many nights you can put up with the kids monkeying around in the other bed 1m away!

$125 for a 2 bedroom suite is pretty good whichever way you look at it.

Michael at the front desk was super super helpful (read this management!!) and we have been very pleased with the place.

Room Tip: Get a room on the ground floor if you have lots of luggage and don't want to worry about lifts/s...
