Inverness, Illinois

This hotel is one of a group of three hotels along the ocean in Crescent City, CA, owned by the same people, and very similar in design. All are three stories, with elevator, and interior hallways. In addition to Lighthouse Inn, they have Bay View Inn, and Ocean View Inn, all located within a couple of blocks of each other...

Flagstaff, Arizona
Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

One of the highest standards I've seen for a modern day hotel, and with an exceptionally reasonable price as a bonus. The staff was prompt, extremely knowledgeable of local businesses/restaurants, and very accommodating to any requests that we had. The room was spacious, and included a leather couch to relax on as opposed to most places where you have to...

DeLand, Florida

We had been driving down the coast in the rain two days before Thanksgiving. The cost was slightly below the chain hotels and it had good reviews, so we stayed there before adventuring into the redwoods the next day. It was a really quaint hotel, beautifully decorated for Christmas. It lifted our spirits as tired as we were. The room...

Hi, Dina B... Greetings to you as you travel from Deland. Thank you for choosing The Lighthouse Inn as you ventured into our Redwood Kingdom. We don't have a commercial kitchen to prepare food cooked to order; however, there are several restaurants offering a full menu all day that guests tell us are worth the effort. Please let us know...

Lighthouse Inn makes a quite modern impression. Rooms are spacious and well equipped. Breakfast is nice, too. We had a nice view on the Pacific ocean. Since it was quite stormy, when we were here, we enjoyed being inside, watching the bad weather outside

Portland, Oregon

Although this is, indeed, the BEST place to stay in Crescent City, I don't recommend it. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and the bathtub was a full-size 3-person Jacuzzi. Despite this, the room was configured in a rather curious layout and somewhat dysfunctional. The bathroom sink is in the room allowing no privacy to either the person...

We stayed at this property and the sister property this August when we visited the Crescent City area in order to hike the Jedediah Smith State Park and other Redwood forests. The hotel was clean, the room was comfortable, the staff was friendly. The breakfast was better than average for a motel providing breakfast. The location is great. We would...

We are full time RVers. We were in Oregon and decided to go see the Redwoods. Left our rig in Oregon and got a room here. Very reasonable price (through booking.com). Our room was very large with an ocean view (hotel is across the street from water). The room was clean and comfy. Upon check-in, the clerk told us not...

Clean spacious room. Comfy bed and very average grab and go breakfast. The staff was very nice and for the price I was very happy with what I received. It is also close to a couple of good restaurants and the local cineplex which was a major bonus.

Indianapolis, Indiana

We only stayed one night but The Lighthouse Inn was just charming! The rooms are very large and they had a small frig and microwave. The continental breakfast was nice - we had bagels. And the staff was very helpful with directions. Go see the lighthouse at Battery Point. I'd highly recommend staying here!
