We started off the day off early again, and with a hot continental breakfast including sausage, omelets and something that looked like oatmeal?? Nicest we have had. We expected to drive for only 5 hours. Nope, we drove for almost 10 (627kms with lots of stops) Started off from Portland, drove out to Tillamook, OR, and made our way to the ocean on …
... It was a preview to the Redwood National Park. We entered the Chandelier Tree park, and we actually drove through a tree! Imagine a tree massive enough that a car can fit through it. There are only three left, all of which are privately owned. We snapped quite a few photos, including some of us in a trunk of a tree. The trees on the west coast have nothing on the ones back in little Delaware.
We were on the road once more to Eel River Brewing Co. We each had ...
... forest to reach a trailhead. The trail took us 1.25 miles farther in to the forest to a 250ft long suspension bridge. It was nice to get out and move around and the bridge was neat. The bridge gave an amazing view of a 70 ft high super powerful looking and sounding waterfall called Drift Creek Falls. I don’t think that anything living would make it over the waterfall and live to tell about it because it emptied out onto a bed of sharp rocks.
We made it to California! whoot! the national parks were still closed so we just stopped off at the plethora of little state parks along the highway. We got to see some of the tallest trees in the world. They were pretty big. It was the first time we wore shorts in a ...
... Scenic Parkway to get up close and personal with the Redwoods, and boy did we do that! We stopped to take some pictures and started walking a trail that wound through immense trees and snags. We stopped at a sign that directed us to three different trails. Good sense tells you that we would turn around and retrace our steps, but not us. We decided to take the short Zigzag trail that said 6/10 of a mile. That'll be a good one. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Oceanfront Lodge Crescent City
This hotel has a fantastic setting and it's public rooms are beautiful and well-appointed. The guest rooms are rather small and the beds are not especially comfortable. We could hear the plumbing sounds from the room next to ours.
Rooms in the "wings" do not have a full ocean view.
Our first 2 nights in Crescent City were spent at the Lighthouse Inn which was nice but for our last night we paid an extra $50 and got a room at the Hampton Inn and Suites. The room was great (King Suite) with an ocean/lighthouse view, jacuzzi tub, fridge, m/w, and balcony. We were not able to get wireless high speed internet in our room (poor signal strength) but did manage to access the internet from the lounge area. The sitting area on the main level of the hotel looks out across the water and has comfortable leather sofas and chairs and a fireplace. Breakfast was included and was very good. The front desk staff wasn't all that friendly and we were quoted a much higher rate when we asked at the front desk as compared to the rate we managed to get online. I would definitely stay here again.
My husband and I stayed here two nights in Sept. Thanks to Trip Advisor's reviews we found this great hotel. The room was a nice size, clean and the view was fantastic! (3rd floor south rooms) The cont. breakfest was the best. The front desk people were very helpful and very nice. The hour drive up the Oregon coast was marvelous and a must while in this area. It was nice to wake up and look out and see the seals basking on the rocks. You can't beat the price either!
We stayed here as a wedding was using the hotel area as its ceremony and reception location. The weather was somewhat cold (mid 60's), so we appreciated the interior entry doors to move easily within the hotel. The kids loved the indoor pool/jacuzzi, and we could easily keep an eye out for them while being in the exercise room or sauna. The expanded continental breakfast and eating area was nice. You had to heat up the egg patty, sausage, french toast, or waffles in the microwave, but everything else was well-stocked. We brought extra's to our room, so it was nice to have a small snack during the day (fridges and microwaves are in all the rooms).
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights last month. Everything was great, staff was very friendly, helpful, and made sure all was well with our stay. Fantastic view of the ocean, all rooms had views of it, most (except ground floor rooms) had balconies. The price was a bit up there, but considering what you got, it's well worth the extra cash. This is one of the best if not the best hotels in Crescent City...
Best hotel in city--by far
We were ready to give up on our annual vacation in crescent city after our experience at the Crescent beach motel. We got lucky and found a room at the Hamton inn. Were were very impressed with the room, the amazing views and the outstanding customer service. This is a 1st class hotel. We look forward to next year!!
This is definitely the best place to stay in Crescent City. All the rooms look out towards the water. Our balcony had a view of the lighthouse and the beach, which was only a few steps away. Everything was clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to this area.
We also planned on staying at another hotel in the area and were not impressed. Managed to get a room last minute, the hotel then sold out. Everything was great (the rooms very clean, the free continental breakfast very good and the amenities included pool, sauna room, hot tub) and the hotel is right on the water and next to the Battery Point Lighthouse. Very Nice. I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to this area.
fantastic rooms with water views. Clean, neat rooms and public areas. Wonderful staff, friendly and helpful. Had reservations at "hotel" in Klamath, but was truly disgusting, so drove few extra miles north and it was well worth it. Pool area open till midnight, perfect after hours hiking thru nearby gorgeous redwoods .
Right on the water......beautiful view, very nice suites
Beautiful views! Hotel is fairly new so the rooms are very nice and clean. They offer an extended continental breakfast including french toast, hot and cold cereals, muffins, waffles and much more. The staff is very friendly. We asked for dining suggestions and when we made our choice they asked us to stop by the front desk on our way out and they would have printed directions for us. There is a large city park and the light house just a short walk away. You never know what your going to get when you are booking a "beach" hotel. We would recommend this hotel to anyone!
