We loved our stay at View Crest. It's perfectly located outside of Redwood National Park but an easy drive north to the park or south to Avenue of the Giants. The host is attentive and had movies to rent for free, which came in handy for our kids on a day that it rained the whole day. We would visit...

We stay here as part of a road trip of California. Reception was not manned on arrival but a memeber of staff quickly helped us and showed us our cabin. It was so cosy! You can park right outside of your cabin. The lounge area was of a good size and the kitchen had all you needed for your stay....

This hotel was really nice. We stayed in the studio which had a very nice deck with a decent ocean view. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was great because we were right down the road from Patrick's Point State Park. I loved that the cottages were separate.

Everything about View Crest was amazing. Wonderful hearing seals barking on rocks below. We were in 7A, which had a deck, microwave, fridge, spacious bathroom and bedroom. Would not hesitate to come back! Plus very nice people running the place!

These cottages are close to Patrick's Point State Park. They are updated and nicely remodeled. The setting is quiet and the hosts are friendly and attentive. The beds are comfortable. Although they are on the East side of the un-busy road, you get a nice view of the ocean. Wi-Fi is a little weak, but works ok. I would stay...

Our family of 4 stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin with a hot tub. We loved having detached accommodations with a large porch, full kitchen and lots of room to spread out. The check in was so friendly and the location was just beautiful - it felt like being at a childhood summer camp again, only much nicer and with...

I have been going to View Crest since I was a baby. Its very nostalgic to me. My boyfriend and I visited November 2016 and it was just as great! Its relaxing to look out the back patio door to the ocean after a long day of hiking.

Having three rooms (bedroom w/tv, bathroom, living/kitchen w/tv, sofa & electric fireplace) made for a comfortable relaxing overnight stay. They even had the kitchen supplied with dishes, utensils, and a toaster in addition to a microwave & small refrigerator.

I loved this place. We stayed in cabin # 2. Had an amazing view of the ocean. Large cabin with full kitchen that we cooked all our meals in. From the back patio we could hear the seals in the AM (not loud enough to hear inside). Great bed and pillows. Very quiet location and friendly staff. Lots of restaurants,...

I was thoroughly impressed with our stay at View Crest Lodge. We ended up arriving later than planned and we messaged them to extend arrival time. We received a prompt and friendly response. When we arrived we were greeted by a sweet girl at the front desk and two adorable (English Bulldogs?). When we entered our little cottage it was...
