New, clean, great service, hard bed
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.
The continental breakfast was adequate and pleasant.
We ate dinner at the restaurant next door, which Michael recommended and which is part of another motel. The food was mediocre and the service friendly but slow, probably because the place was packed for the 4th of July weekend. We were craving clam chowder and were disappointed that they don't serve it, given the other seafood dishes on the menu and that Crescent City is famous for seafood (Dungeness crabs).
Would we stay here again? Maybe. We'd definely specify a softer bed and dine elsewhere!
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.
Our room was nothing short of spacious. Well placed lighting. Internet connection very good. Nice variety of hot and cold food for breakfast. The entire staff from the front desk clerk to the maids to the people serving breakfast were helpful and friendly.
Way to go Lighthouse Inn. Top Quality for very reasonably rates. Wish more hotels would follow your led.
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.
Best mid-range hotel I've ever stayed in
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.
The place turned out to be BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN, ornately decorated (a bit tacky perhaps, but my son loved it), the rooms are HUGE and fully appointed (which for me means a microwave and a refrigerator), the included breakfast was excellent, the staff helpful and the location great. Did I mention the clean, well-equipped laundry room? One more thing - it's well sound-proofed. Although our room overlooked the main highway (a good thing since we had a view across the highway to the harbor) with the window closed our room was almost silent. And the rates are very reasonable. And it's COMPLETELY NON-SMOKING! You just couldn't ask for more from a mid-range hotel. Why can't more places be like this?
(Well, it doesn't have a pool but during the winter it's too cold to use it anyway and during summer you'll go to the beach or the rivers. So the pool was a reasonable omission.)
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.

DAY 4: UPPER LAKE - CRESCENT CITY: 275 miles
Continuing our journey north from Upper Lake, we pass a field serving as the command centre for the army of firefighters from around the western US here to battle the wildfires raging around this area. The air is heavy with smoke and ash from the fires burning on the thickly wooded slopes. The temperature is rising and the sky is a cloudless blue. ...

While Bud napped, I walked the stalls of the Coos Bay farmer's market. There were offerings of huge blackberries, heirloom tomatoes, purple carrots, lemon cucumbers, as well as, organic meats and local crafts. Street musicians ...

After Lombard Street, we went to visit the Golden Gate Bridge. I always associated San Francisco with Full House, so it was cool to see the little things that I remembered from the opening credits. The bridge was massive, and there was a light fog that covered it. We drove over it, and there was actually a walking section along the entire bridge.
After we left San Francisco, we headed to Chandelier Tree, also known as ...
... in the 1800's, so there's lots of 'new' forrest, and not so much of the old. In turn, this means that the giant redwoods which we were hunting were actually spread out over a few national parks, maybe a good 100 miles between the north and the south border. After some research, we opted to do some backcountry camping in just one of the parks. Backcountry means camping which is not in a designated campsite, but rather where you hike in with all your kit on your ...
... a winding trail that ended with another sign directing us to more trails that were longer distances. We selected the shortest one, but again, it wound around and we had no idea where we were. Growing a little concerned because it was getting to be early evening, we finally came upon a sign that directed us to the Parkway in 1/10 mile. We all opted for that one and decided if we had to climb a hill to the highway we’d ...
