“By the wharf”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

We stayed here because it was on the coast and by the wharf. It was clean and right on 101 in the redwoods. The free breakfast was a buffet at the restaurant next door. The staff at the motel was friendly and helpful. Would staff here again but was a bit pricey.

Day 12 of a 16 day road trip. This room was on reward points and a disappointment. I had asked for a top floor room when making the reservation. Upon arrival I was told that the hotel was filled but I could have and extra large "family room". Room was very large, lots of empty space, but had a very strong odor. When the front desk was told they gave us a spray can of air freshener. It appeared that this room had not been used in a long time and was quite musty. After purchasing a scented candle and burning it for an hour, the musty smell seemed to subside. Other than the carpet looking like it had not been vacuumed (it had what looked sparkles from party favors sprinkled about) the rest of the room and bathroom were very clean. The hallways smelled better and were better vacuumed. I would have to try another property if in the area again.

Room Tip: Stay away from the "family room" unless you have kids.

I stayed here for a hiking trip to the Redwoods National and State Parks in April of 2012, and received great value on the lodging. The rooms are clean and quiet, the parking is abundant, and the staff was friendly. It's easy to find.. right off 101 and across from the Crescent City Harbor. They had a decent restaurant attached (but separate) that offers an above average continental breakfast (gratis). The dinner menu was so-so, but their lounge/bar in the back was awesome... great beers cheap with solid bar food. It was a great place to relax and watch a game/mingle a bit after a day on the trails and locals definitely hit it as well. If I ever find myself back in Crescent City I'd definitely stay again.

Stayed for business. Pleasant staff. You can hear noise from rooms above when staying on ground floor, a heavy footed person will bug you as the walls are thin. Overall it was a typical three star best western.

We didn't notice anything when we first arrived, but as we were settling in for the night we saw a few ants by the sink and the bathtub. Being as it was late, there were only a few bugs, and we were exhausted, we didn't think it was a big enough deal to call the front desk. In the morning, the ants were everywhere! There was a thick line of them all around the bathtub, sink, and they were getting into our stuff. There were some on the bed too. I tried calling the front desk but got a busy signal. We needed to get on the road quickly to make an appointment but my son didn't want to shower with the ants, so I went to the front desk and they immediately gave us keys to another nearby room. They apologized for the inconvenience, but then presented me with the bill for the entire amount. I requested a discount and they offered 30%. I suggested 50% would make me happier so they called the supervisor, who, without knowing I'd settle for 50% off, authorized comping us the room. Excellent! But still pretty gross. It was quiet as our room was back away from the highway and we slept well. Breakfast was all right, fresh waffles, eggs, chile rellenos. They have a pool and hot tub, but the hours were 7 am to 3 pm, not really ideal times to use those facilities. It would have been nice to have an evening soak in the hot tub after a long day on the road.

Stayed at this hotel on March 30, 2012. Check in was good and room was very clean but basically standard room size and furnishings with a 32" LG television and small bathroom. Could hear some moderate noise from room above but was not particularly bothersome. Breakfast buffet which is provided at the next door restaurant was extremely good - in fact, one of the best 1-2 hotel breakfasts I've had in years. Overall, I would certainly recommend this hotel whenever staying in the Crescent City area.

Good size room, dated but nice and clean. Buffet breakfast at the adjacent restaurant was average too. Problems with the wi-fi. It worked well when we checked in then was non existent. Had to open our door and stand in the doorway to get reception, then went to the lobby to use our lap top. I am assuming the signal strength is not good when too many people are using it.
Not close enough to walk to the beach (or be prepared for a long walk).

Room Tip: upper floor would be quieter. No elevator so you need to lug your suitcases up stairs.
