We came halfway round the globe to see the magnificent Redwoods. To smell the fresh forest air from this motel was an additional bonus. The absence of air conditioning and the ineffectiveness of the blinds did not bother us. Sure there were two dogs beneath our window, but they only bark in the mornings.
Take a short stroll to see Jed Smith Redwood Burl Co and bought a couple of his beautiful Redwood bookmarks and business card boxes. Generally the surroundings were calm and the forest air was invigorating.
If you like nature and not perpetually rushing around, you will love this motel and the Redwoods. Otherwise stay in Crescent City.
