With my new pants and hiking shoes in hand we set off from Eureka and headed north to the Redwoods National park. The drive was once again stunning, I'm starting to get used to massive tree's and I'm not sure if regular sized tree's are going to cut the mustard going forward.
First order of business was to find a camp site in the National park …
... on the Oregon Coast, we drove down to cross the Californian border and to enter into the Redwood forest. The Redwoods is comprised of four different National parks along the ocean coast and covers and protects 133,000 acres of land. We camped, hiked, drove through and hugged the tallest and one of the most massive tree specie in the world which reaches up to 370 feet (115.5 m) in height, grows up to 26 feet (7.0 m) in diameter and lives up to 1,800 years. On our full day ...
It's Friday the 13th and I went to a lake??? Thankfully I did not see anybody with a hockey mask. JASON!!!
When I left this morning it looked overcast and a bit nasty but 30 miles east the clouds cleared revealing a blue sky. It was about 100 miles to Crater Lake through state and national forests. Gentle turns and gradual altitude changes allowed for easy enjoyment of the postcard ...
... in terms of flat water. And we definitely wanted the flattest water available! As it was, the bar was closed to small boats but we had no problems. Since we had to leave so late we decided it was time to try a night run.
We have been able to hop from harbor to harbor during the days so far on this trip. That was always our plan. We are entering a fun race that goes from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas in late October. ...
... I poured half of it into Bonna's diet coke and I downed the rest of it before doing a Fat Tire chaser. Damn, it was good---even Bonna liked it. I put it on my iPhone 'town shopping' list to get a big bottle of it the next time we were in civilization. The iPhone isn't any good as a PHONE here in Klamath (thanks again AT&T) but at least it is good for keeping a grocery list for whenever we got somewhere that HAS a grocery store.
The burgers ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Lighthouse Inn Crescent City
We booked our room a month in advance and spoke to Pleiades, a charming, friendly, and professional gentleman. When we checked in, we were greeted by Michael, who was all of those things, too. We stayed in room 323, a short climb up the stairs. (The elevator was broken.) The room was immaculate, had a king bed and a nice view of the shoreline. Unfortunately for us, the bed was very, very firm and so were the pillows; that made it a challenge to fall asleep.
Hard boiled eggs
This is the best hotel ever. CLEAN like brand new. Hard boiled eggs were great for breakfast with fresh donuts and cinimin rolls not packaged. Jacuzzi for two was sensational. Nothing like this hotel in Carmel-by-the-Sea for twice the price.
The clerk sold me a room with a "Fireplace---it was a fake fireplace with light and air-blown paper machet--overcharged for the room. I would avoid this hotel.
We traveled for 11 weeks last summer. This hotel definitely gets the top award for cleanliness. Quite frankly, we've never seen anything like it. What a treat. The bathroom actually sparkled and how heavenly they put in separate switches for the bathroom lights and the vent. We get so tired of listening the vent from the second you enter a bathroom until you leave. The air conditioner was quiet as well.
Neat little hotel
My wife and I spent two nights at the Lighthouse Inn in Crescent City, Ca and we found it a very pleasant experience. The customer service was freindly & efficient. The lobby was good sized and decorated in a nautical theme, and very neat & clean. Our room was above average and very reasonable at the AAA rate of $89.00 per night which included a very nice continental breakfast. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Beautiful hotel with a leather sofa in every room
If you like comfort and cleaniness this is the place to stay in Crescent City. Our room had a leather sofa in it. The lobby is decorated beautifully (lighthouses, dolphins, sea captains) and the hotel staff (even the maid service) were tops! I had asked to look at the room first (something I always do) about the same time the rooms were being inspected by the head maid. I told her I was going to take the room and she said she was going to follow up and make sure everything was in place. The continential breakfast was very good also. Hotel is non-smoking. Another plus!
Loved this hotel
We really loved this hotel. The front desk clerk was very friendly. This hotel has been decorated by somebody who cares, my daughters loved the dollhouse display in the lobby, and the mural on the wall. But the best part was our room, nothing short of HUGE, and very clean too. We also enjoyed the continental breakfast. Not to mention, the rates are reasonable too! I definately recommend this hotel if you're staying in Crescent City.
We had stayed at the Super 8 in Crescent City for a couple of nights, which was ok but not a particularly nice hotel. Then checked out to go camping, and afterwards came back to town looking for something nicer when we noticed the Lighthouse Inn. Well, my 4 year old son likes lighthouses so we were stuck... but in a good way.
Three cheers for Lighthouse Inn
Wow! Great rates. Great staff! Friendly, courteous, and just plain nice. And the rooms are great! Spacious and very clean. The whole place looks brand new. And is completely smoke free. YAY!
I travel quite a bit and have my share of stories to tell, so when I find something as nice as this by golly I'm gonna let somebody know about it. :)
I stopped in for just 2 days but liked it so much I stayed a whole week. Great location. I enjoyed visiting the harbor which is just across the street and had fun watching the sealions before visiting one of the many wonderful restaurants in the area.
Lighthouse Inn in Crescent City, CA is a GREAT place to stay. Keep up the good work!
Great place to stay!
We spent Labor Day weekend 2004 in Crescent City and stayed at 2 different hotels. The Lighthouse Inn is directly across from the harbor. Close enough that you can hear the sea lions barking and the fog horn blowing. You can also hear the traffic as it is on the main road into town. It was nice to be able to walk across the street and over to the docks to watch sunset. The front desk staff was exceptional (Thanks Mimi) and the rates were very reasonable. The room (with King bed) was large, spotless and looked as if they had just remodeled. I would stay here again if my first choice (the Hampton Inn and Suites) was all booked up.
