On the coast and away from downtown, the Scopa was a wonderful stop in our week’s long trip across and up California Very clean, peaceful, and comfortable accommodations And then there are the Innkeepers Irene and Jose

They made the entire stay all the better with their hospitality They welcomed and treated us like family We’re looking forward to our next visit

Beautiful B&B along the coast We stayed in the Whale Horizon Spa Suite on the 2nd flr that has a wonderful view of the coast Enjoyed relaxing in the window seat while watching the sunsets

Irene spoiled us with delicious breakfasts each morning! We really enjoyed our time at Scopa and appreciated all Irene did to make our time special

The rooms are fantastic–clean, comfortable, spacious The staff is awesome Everyone is extremely kind and gracious and helpful

Ricardo especially went out if his way to be welcoming and kind at check in, it was such a pleasant situation after a harrowing dark and rainy drive The breakfast is great and the dining room is beautiful Pool is excellent Honestly, this is one of the overall nicest places I’ve ever stayed

Stearns James

Location was nice and convenientThe room was fine and bed was comfortableOnly downside was older bathroom wasn’t as clean as I would have liked The room flooring was wood, no carpet which I liked, but needed to be wet mopped to get up stains

The breakfast service was nice with many optionsThe value for the price we paid was the reason for the 3 star rating

I am not one to complain but I feel as though we had too many complications for only staying one night and hardly got any sort of apology from the staffMy fiance and I decided to take our 10 month old to the coast and I made a reservation to stay here as well as calling twice to assure our stay We drove 2

5 hours and upon arrival we were given a room that was completely thrashed and had leftover takeout from the previous tenants We went back to the office to get a different room and all we were told was “they would make note of that” We got upstairs and it seemed to be alright so we went to dinner and checked in up front on our way back about pool hours We were told the pool was stocked with towels and didn’t need to bring our own so we got changed and went down When trying to leave there were absolutely no towels anywhere around but nobody had left the pool either so it wasn’t actually stocked and we had to walk our daughter back to the room in the cold Later that night we tried to put things in the fridge only to find there was food left in there too! I went down first thing in the morning to let that know all the issues we had and was told “they would make note of that” and we were on our way Not a good experience at all and quite inconvenient Wish we stayed somewhere else I have never had previous problems as a single best Western before This was frustrating to say the least

This is a very charming, clean, and comfortable place to stay There is no breakfast yet due to covid but when they start again I bet it is good My family was excited to stay here

I am picky when it comes to hotel bathrooms and our bathroom looked brand new! No cracked sealer around the bathtub or floor Faucets are not corroded Very impressed The staff was very kind when we checked in We would stay here again anytime we are in the area

Matthew Pyle

On my scale, this place earned an 8/10Safety/Security: 8/10Cleanliness: 9/10Air Conditioning: 8/10Electrical outlets: 7/10Shower: 8/10Bed comfort: 6/10Staff: 10/10The only dings on security was a couple of cars in the parking lot with flat tires and tags that had expired many years ago It also appeared someone was living in the woods right behind the place

The place was super charming and very clean, overallThe Air Conditioner was broken when we checked in and for our first 2 of 4 nights, but they refunded us part of our room cost back and replaced the A/C with a brand new unit and it worked great after that The air coming off the ocean was really chilly but unfortunately we were on the back side of the hotel and didn’t get any of that breeze if we opened the windows, so the A/C was neededThe electrical outlets were fineThe shower could have used more pressure but it was really comfortableThe bed was not overly comfortable but wasn’t uncomfortable either and we slept okThe staff was super friendly and helpfulThe Ocean was right across the street from usOverall I would definitely stay here again if I am ever out in Crescent City again

Love this camp ground

could use an update on bathrooms and possibly put showers in It is county owned so showers with a coin deposit per shower would still benefit the county and help the campers out that stay for a longer visit Also maybe a little snack bar Even if it’s only open a couple hours a day, again it would benefit the county financially!


Great night stop! (Mid summer 2021)We drove into this site around 6pm on a Sunday and easily found a spot (with still 2-3 sites open) The best spots are along the river! Each site cost $20The campsites are relatively close to each other

Some more than othersRestrooms were decently clean!Bring your own fire woodThe water was so clean, fresh, and warm! We went for a sunset swim ❤️Camp is very close to the highway You can hear trucks and cars passingIt got pretty chilly at night time, I wish I had an extra jacket and blanket It got fairly misty over night and early morningI really did enjoy this place!


A truly wonderful little campground Nice amenities, extremely close to the river, and wonderful old redwoods surrounding each site Water hook ups for RVs, spots on the beach for tent camping, and animal & kid friendly

Extremely close to the Jedediah State Forest if there aren’t any camping sites available there I can’t recommend this spot enough

Neat little hole in the wall Run down and out dated, but a neat little clean place The room we were in had a full kitchenette with a little fridge, 4 burner stove and it slept at least 4 comfortably

1Q, 1Full, and a couch Full bath Parking is limited but they don’t mind if you park in the grass either which is still very close and not inconvenient at all Owner has some very beautiful plants outside that are very vibrant and pretty A very short walk to a private beach area made it very nice and relaxing to be there They are not huge, I think they probably have around 13 rooms I was pleasantly surprised that this quaint older building was as comfy as it is Don’t expect fancy, but it definitely feels homey Happy Beaching!

Stephen J. Allen

You can’t beat the views from this place, with a private walk down to the beach just a few steps from the door It’s simple, but they go the extra mile to make it comfortable and enjoyable: eggs in the fridge, a well-stocked kitchenette, comfy beds and bedding, everything clean It’s quiet and feels safe

We were without Wi-Fi for a while, but we just played cards and such Also, the shower door is a bit precarious because it opens right into the corner of the sink ha ha, so be wary A great stay!


The view is amazing The setting is soothing The motel sits on a cliff above the beach, which is accessible by an easily navigable stair/path

There is a fire pit, a BBQ, and plenty of grass for kids/adults/dogs to run around in They also have a movie library for guests to borrow from The rooms are not modern, but they are clean and cozy and have perfectly adequate kitchenettes (They stock the kitchenette with enough tools to cook your own meals, and will loan you more stuff if you need) The bathrooms are pretty basic, and I’d advise people to bring their own shampoo/conditioner/soap, unless they are cool with bar soap and conditioning shampoo The management is quietly friendly, so don’t expect overt enthusiasm from them, but don’t be surprised if they set you up with morning wafflesWe had time for one night on the coast, and also had two dogs Sea Escape is dog friendly, and infinitely more beautiful and relaxing than the other dog friendly options down the coast into CA It was a few miles out of the way, but was the best decision ever We can’t wait to have a proper vacation there

Super friendly staff, everything was working wonderfully(toilets, sinks, etc), clean rooms, affordable and so accommodating Absolutely love this and I have no complaints! There is a fog horn you can hear but honestly it’s was so faint you don’t hear it in the day and at night is was faint and honestly soothing to hear however they offer rooms away so it’s harder to hear Very spacious rooms, The beds were comfortable, the carpets were clean, and the quality of the hotel is better than the other two I had seen and stayed at in town

Will only stay here for my vacations


The Ocean View inn was great We went in without a reservation and we’re offered an ocean view room that was a double occupancy room, and it was charged at the single king price We were even offered a military discount

They are very friendly, clean, spacious The beds were very comfortable We have been on the road for several days now and a great place to sleep for the night was priceless Remember to always be happy, mindful, and the best you

Xrystina B

Stayed for 2 nights I gave 2 stars because all of the employees were extremely nice and very helpful But that’s about all the positive things I can say

The beds were very uncomfortable The room smelled weird The walls were SUPER thin – we could hear literal conversations from the next room The building is really old, and it shows its age everywhere The furniture and appliances were all very outdated They were also not serving a continental breakfast because of COVID which I think is not a great excuse anymore since all mandates have been lifted I really don’t mind staying in older hotels, but they should not charge as much as they do for the quality you get

We loved our stay (we were in the separate house)! Walked right down to the water to collect rocks I could watch the seals playing in the Smith River from our house! The house was clean and had everything we needed The hosts left us yummy treats (Chinese food, homemade) in the freezer and lots of snacks, which was awesome as we were hungrier than we thought and it’s about 20 minutes to Crescent City

They had HBO, Netflix and Amazon prime so we had plenty of options when it got dark The host was easy to contact and prompt in his responses The grounds are well kept as well Definitely worth paying a bit more for this unique experience! We’ll be back!

DO NOT STAY HERE! I made my reservation through Priceline and then received an email that said I had to be checked in by 8:30 PM I made my reservation about an hour before that time and would not have been able to make it by 8:30 I contacted the property owner and tried to inform him of my situation he told me that he would be understanding and issue a refund for the confusion The property owner later changed his story and has declined my refund for the stay despite me immediately calling after making the reservation and never using the room

My advice would be to spend the extra $10-$20 it would cost to get an actual hotel room and avoid these incredibly dishonest people I am not sure why this house is even listed on apps meant for hotels

ben lewis

Place is nice but is in an old house I booked and showed up late and the owner was nice and accommodating about it Be warned that the hostel is a house turned hostel and the guy who runs it is very aware that its not the most ideal set up

Still pretty much free breakfest and coffee is offered The owner also loves to talk which is great because he told me tons of useful info about the area Just be weary that the house isnt on a main street and that you need to try to be quiet while using the bathroom at night otherwise you will wake the other guests Ps book though the website to save money

Toben Lindell

Generally confused by this place It’s organized and clean But then there’s odd aspects

Clean bed but the pillow was very flat The walls are thin, I snore, and felt like I was going to disturb others It felt like it needed something but honestly, Crescent City isn’t a “quaint” town from my impression I’m sure this is a nice stay for alot of folks Was confusing for me

Chris Woodcox aka Alpine

We were pleasantly surprised by the accommodations at Anchor Beach Inn We stayed in a corner room with three queen size beds as we had a party of two adults and two teenagers The room offered a good amount of space

It was clean, had a refrigerator as well as a relatively large flat screen TV The beds were nice but were a little firm for my liking The staff on site were friendly including the housekeeper’s The hotel is literally right across the street to a nice beach I believe it is Crescent beach Additionally, there is a nice restaurant that offers some delicious sushi behind the Inn For the value and proximity to the beach and quiet location we would definitely stay at Anchor Beach Inn again Note: if you’ve got the windows open you will hear the sea lions barking!

Tommy “Tommy”

The view was beautiful and the room at first glance was cute, But the bed sheets had some stains on them There was also minimal amenities/toiletries There was no room services during our 4 day , 3 night stay

If we needed any extra towels, shampoo, toilet paper, garbage bags, coffee or any amenities we needed to walk down and ask for them at the lobby There was also no complimentary breakfast provided The view from the room was gorgeous but for the price we paid it was not worth it We expected some better service for the price For a one day stay this is fine, but for multiple days it was a bit pricey for what you get

Sergio Carrillo

The Location of the Hotel was perfect Great access to the beach and close to plenty of restaurants The room was very spacious and I would have to say that our only complaint/issue with the room(and the reason for only 4 stars and not 5) was that the floor was a wee bit dirty couldn’t walk in socks had to keep our shoes on when in the room but other than that we enjoyed our stay! The check-in and check-out was simple and the staff was very friendly!
