My wife and I recently took a weekend alone escape up the California coast to Crescent City. While there we stayed at the Lighthouse Inn. We both really loved this quaint little in. The gentleman at the desk was probably hands down the best hotel staff I have ever encountered. He was knowledgeable and friendly and refreshing had my check... More

After a wonderful day of driving on the 101 highway it was delightful to come to rest at the Lighthouse Inn. It was not overly fancy, the staff were very friendly and it felt kinda like coming home. I had wished it had a pool, but with all the other things to be doing, I don't think I would have... More

Love the hotel. The room is very roomy and nicely decorated. The bathroom is spotless clean. It has microwave, refrigerator and coffee machine with free coffee. The continental breakfast does not have hot items nor waffle machine, but there are plenty of pastries, cereals, boiled eggs, fruits, juice and coffee. Right across the street is the ocean, walking distance. Highly... More

We recently did a cross county driving trip that included 13 nights in hotel rooms. The Lighthouse Inn was by far my favorite stop. The lobby is beautifully decorated and includes a display of dollhouses that were built by the owner. Our room was spacious and very clean. I love that the sink was outside of the bathroom. The breakfast... More

We stayed July 13-15, 2016. Freddy at the desk was very helpful, helped us with wine opener, restaurant menus, and tips of where to go. The hotel is very clean but a bit dated which is what keeps it from being a 5 ⭐️ but we felt comfortable. Will stay again, in fact recommended to a friend who is staying... More

We stayed here on our drive down the coast. We took their very last room for the night. Don't be thrown off by the photos the place could definitely use an update in the decor BUT it was clean and the staff was very nice and hospitable. Several people who were staying had been staying there for years. The breakfast... More

This hotel is across the street from the harbor and not far from a lighthouse. The room was clean, but the bathroom door needs to be painted, as it was very scuffed up and made the bathroom feel dirty even though it wasn't. The beds were hard. The vanity in this handicap-accessible room was in the room, and there was... More

We had a king room on the third floor. The room was VERY clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fresh and well maintained. The mattress was quite firm but most hotel beds are. Lighthouse Inn is in close proximity to the marina, beach & restaurants and the staff had some good recommendations for us.

We called from the road and spoke to Freddy. He took our same day reservation and held the room without a credit card because our call was breaking up.
