This is an old property, which could be great, if it would get a renovation. The location is convenient right on highway 101 and just a 10 minute walk from the harbor. The rooms are clean and big, but the interior is pretty outdated. If you have some time, I would recommend you to visit Stout Grove and the mouth...

Unique place. Apparently made from one redwood. Everything but the carpet and paint seemed quite dated but in good shape. Think keyed entry, pink tile tub walls, 70s? furniture, etc. Sheets weren't fitted. Very clean. Price was right. covered parking a plus. I'd stay there again.

You won't find a better deal in Crescent City. No hair dryers or shampoo in the rooms but the front desk will give you a hair dryer if you ask. The walls are fairly thin but the rooms are spacious. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We'd stay here again. It doesn't cost a lot so don't expect a...

I would have given this place a better rating (at least an "average") if it hadn't been for a very negative experience we had with one of the employees. I've wanted to check Curly Redwood out for ages...I like motels that don't fall into the cookie-cutter mode of modern chain motels, and I was intrigued by the idea that an...

This retro decor motel meet our needs for comfort and cleanliness. The rooms are large and are close to local restaurants ~ we chose the Chart Room & it was delicious.  I would highly recommend this for travelers looking for a good night sleep for a decent price.

From the moment I called for reservations I got the impression that this outfit was in the motel business rather than the "hospitality" business as they were very concerned with the rules, when I checked in the rules were re-iterated. Rooms are spacious free coffee and tea in the lobby, (cups are small so you may want to bring a...

This place won't be for everyone, but I loved it. If you need elegance and lots of creature comforts, you will want to look elsewhere. But as a basic, but clean and good value stay, this place certainly fit the bill. I liked the sound of the place from other reviews - nostalgic and retro - and the prices were...

This is not a luxury resort by any means, but if you're looking for luxury, Crescent City is not the place for you. The hotel is clean, the rooms are spacious, and the owner is a gem with all sorts of advice about places to eat, etc. We found sand dollars galore at the south end of Crescent Beach and...

Smells. Stark room. Thin walls. Bed and linens from ??? Not sure where these good ratings are coming from. I don't mind an older motel but wow, this is the bare essentials. Rooms were hard to come by on this night so we decided to give this one a try because of the trip advisor ratings. A rare time when...
