This is hands down the best value in Crescent City. We have stayed many places over the years in this area and this place is our go to. Inexpensive, clean, quiet. Absolutely no frills, TV is basic , internet is somewhat reliable and furnishings are functional. There is some history behind the lodge which makes it somewhat more interesting then...

Curly Redwood Lodge had great character. The staff was friendly, the location was great, the atmosphere and decor was very cool and the room was nice and clean. The bed was a bit uncomfortable and the pillows were rather thin, however. Overall it was charming and the restaurant across the street was yummy!

In Crescent City, I encountered the most ignorant, offensive person I've ever met in the hotel industry, and he was the reception clerk at the motel we had just booked into - 'Curly's Motel'. When I told him that the wifi wasn't working in my room, I received a tirade of abuse in which he refused to believe there was...

When management brought a laptop out to show you that there was wireless reception, there is nothing else we can do. It is not our responsibility to fix a guest laptop, tablet or any other wireless device. It was clearly working for us on more than one device. You received a refund and went elsewhere, EVERYONE WAS HAPPY!

This was a great place. Clean neat and a slice out of the past. The redwoods paneling is terrific, and the room is clean. There isn't much to this place. No frills, but its cheap, very clean and comfortable, the staff is very friendly, and the building is beautiful.

This is an older hotel that has been well maintained. The interior redwood walls and door have been refinished nicely, and the walls were freshly painted. We had a double queen room, which was quite large, but the bathroom and shower are small, like a European bathroom. The room did not have a refrigerator. There is no continental breakfast provided,...

This is fine for what it is and it is affordable, but they could update their beds some, the mattress pad was like an old piece of carpet and the bottom sheet does not stay in place. Unfornately this makes for a bad nights sleep if you are sensitive to that sort of thing, and a good nights sleep is...

We had stayed there a couple of years ago and were happy with the value and cleanliness of the motel. Stayed there again in December 2012 and froze. The cadet heater could not keep up with the outside temperature. Sat in front of the heater until going to bed plus took the blanket off the other bed to be warm...

Very spacious and clean, and parking right in front of your suite (when you're road tripping a long way, you need to keep an eye on your ride!). All amenities except in-suite fridge. The rooms could really use a fridge. That being said, the sleep was great. It's right on the highway on the south side of town (our GPS...

Wanna get that throwback feel but demand a squeaky clean "motor-in hotel"? This is the place! Not weird, just wonderful. Spotless and good smelling. Walk across Hwy 101 to Fisherman's Restaurant for generous fish & chips or walk the Crescent City Harbor. We did! Would do it again, too and I am fussy. Great value as well.

What a great place to stay – like going into to a time warp but it in a really good way. You park your car right outside your room and then enter into a room that takes you back in time. The room was clean, the staff friendly and the price very competitive. We were really glad we stayed here...
