Superb customer service. They upgraded our room free of hassle due to an error at booking. We were able to get two adjoining rooms on the spot to accommodate our family vacation. The rooms are huge and very clean. It's a quaint walk across the street to the Marina.

Not only was the Lighthouse Inn comfortable, but it has a view looking over the ocean and the employees go out of their way to make their customers happy! I had left something behind and the staff were kind enough to mail it to me promptly. Would recommend highly!

We booked a family suite with three queen beds for our family road trip vacation. The room was huge! It was clean and pretty quiet as well for being right off Highway 101. Beds were not very comfortable. The staff was very friendly. Breakfast was typical, but the coffee was good for hotel coffee. Overall, it was a very good... More

Please know that we understand mattress firmness, or lack thereof, is such a personal experience, that we aim for the middle.

We had a nice stay, the room was clean and the staff were friendly. We would stay here again :) It is right next door to the best western that was over $200 a night while our room was $124 for a two queen bed room.

Hi, acfisher91... Like you, we think a hotel doesn't have to be spendy to be great. Thank you for the shout-out on our TripAdvisor page for other travelers to see. Hope your Summer 2016 travels are equally as satisfying and you return home safe, refreshed and full of lasting and positive memories. :-) More

Cute hotel with very large well furnished rooms. Very clean and comfortable. Free continental breakfast. Micro and frig. Very large vanity. Nice view of the Marina across the street. Able to walk to the marina, restaurants, parks and gift shops. Only a few miles away from Elk Valley casino. Great value. Definitely would stay again.

we had a 2 queen bed room and it was quite a large room! front desk staff (at check in and out) were both friendly and efficient. breakfast was good, but a lot of 'carb' items. we had a room facing the back parking lot, so it was quiet. pretty lobby area.

Howdy, roadtrips_12... So glad you made way to our part of Northern California on your Summer 2016 travels from Connecticut. Unlike chain hotels, we were able to design and build our hotel to accommodate large families who travel or individuals who like to spread out and not feel like they're in a matchbox!

On a family trip, we had been avoiding crescent city, but there weren't many other towns that worked with our itinerary. On a hunch I called the inn and found out that we got their last two rooms for the night. Totally reasonable price, very clean and quiet, a little bit dated in the decor if you care, great restaurant... More

The Lighthouse Inn is a "chain-like" hotel which is locally owned and run. The hotel is close to the water and walking distance to decent dinner at Great Harvest (see seperate review). Staff was friendly. The hotel is clean but not really updated. Feels like kitchen that was let go a bit too long. However, the Ocean breeze was wonderful... More
