Reviewed November 5, 2011

This is an older 2 story motel. We were given a room on the second floor which was a problem due to mobility issues but we dealt with it. The view was of the trailer park. Be sure and ask for extra pillows because the ones on the bed are small and flat. The hotel is located on the outer edge of town. The breakfast was all carbs and coffee so we drove down the road to the next town to eat. Decent value and limited services.

We got the hotel for a good price for the night. We were looking for something on the beach, and this was pretty close to the beach. The check in process was smooth, the owner was very helpful, gave us recommendations on nearby places to visit, restaurants, etc. The room was very big, and clean, the bed was comfortable. I would have given it a 4.5 rating, if possible, the reason for cutting off the half is only because of the view. We were told we had a beach view and I suppose we did, except it was half a beach view, with the other half facing the main road. The breakfast was good, there were bagels, muffins, donuts, waffles, juice, coffee and worked out well for us. I took my coffee and went for a walk on the beach which was right behind the hotel, and that was great! Overall a good stay.

Room Tip: For a good beach view choose a room towards the center of the hotel, on the left you get the rmain o...

The rooms on the second floor, 201 through 208 face South Beach without any interferring views of the next door trailer park. The rooms are big, clean and basic. From the windows of these rooms you can watch the ocean, fascinating kite-flying, and nighttime bonfires. There was also a microwave and refrigerator in our room. There isn't a flat screen TV in the room, but who needs a TV to compete with the views? The hotel is quiet, guests seem to enjoy the location which is just across the street to South Beach. The Chart Room is a comfortable stroll for tasty seafood meals or a standard coffee/tea to go, located oceanside of the hotel on the jetty.

Most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. We had room to accommodate our Golden Retriever and could walk him across the street. Road noise died right down in evening. We could walk to the Chart Room restaurant. Bathroom was dated - but all in all, a great spot. Did not book in advance, so paid $118.00 plus tax plus dog fee. Probably could get a better deal on Travelocity. But BEDS were the highlight!!

We paid extra for a beach view since the other option is a view of the travel trailer parking lot. We stayed two nights, but one night would have been sufficient. The breakfast was typical--good for kids. The bed was extremely uncomfortable, but the day we checked out they were installing new mattresses. Crescent City was destroyed in the 60's from a tsunami, so there are no attractive buildings anywhere. The bay is quite smelly from the water treatment plant. A short walk from the hotel will bring you to see the sea lions near the dock. The beach is convenient to get to and is quite wide.

Room Tip: pay for an ocean view

Very basic, big clean room and bathroom, extremely reasonably priced

Arrived in a storm, left in torrential rain so unfair to say much about the surroundings, but motel is fine, probably better than fine if the weather is good.

We (myself, hubby, 14-yr-old son) stayed on a Saturday with advance reservations. The fellow (owner?) checking us in was pleasant and helpful. The room and property were 'beach shabby'. The location was great; definitely had ocean/beach views, and although it was located right on Hwy 101, the traffic noise was minimal. The room itself had seen better days, and needed a good update. The carpet was stained, as were the lampshades, and the beds were low-quality and uncomfortable. Although they advertise 'Free WiFi' on the website, the motel sign indicated in-room DSL. I don't recall detecting WiFi on the property, but we definitely did not have WiFi in the room. The DSL data port was located nearly behind the mattress of one of the Queen beds, and not convenient to an electrical plug in. We made it work, though.
