I have stayed at the Crest Motel many times. Always had a good experience and was treated good. Great location and very convenient if you have a boat. Restaurants, gas, boat launches and bait shops are all close.

My husband and I stayed at the Crest Motel with several other family members for a family occasion. We found the staff at the front desk to be unfriendly and unaccommodating. Upon arrival, I was accused of never having called to inform them we were bringing our dog, despite having called to have that added to our reservation and learn...

We visit Ashland once a year because our youngest goes to Northland. Those of you who have been there know that hotel/motel prices can be rather steep. The crest motel is situated with a beautiful view of Chequamegon Bay -even in winter with ice on the lake. The motel is family run and pleasant. The winter rates are very affordable....

Really should rate between average and above average... Great view of lake, lovely grounds, excellent location, friendly staff, loads of parking and motorcycle friendly. Rooms on the small size but did have small sofa, small fridge, microwave and good shower. Not much space to hang clothes and lack of electrical outlets for charging devices. Room appeared very clean until we...

I booked a 2 night stay here (minimum 2 nights required) so I could run the Whistle Stop event in town. The location of the motel is great. Very close to downtown, right on the main road, beautiful view of the lake. The room, however, was another story. I knew it would be no-frills, and I was fine with that....

We spent a night here on our way home. It is very conveniently located along highway 2 and has a great view of Lake Superior. The room we had was small but very clean and served our needs. Nice owners. A busy place.

This motel had a beautiful view of Lake Superior. The room was very reasonably priced. The front desk was very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and had fridge and microwave. The bed was ok could have been firmer. I would definately come here again just for the view and outside grounds very nicely kept. Also pet friendly.

We chose the Crest Motel because they allow a dog. Driving in, we were excited by the beautiful, well kept grounds and the great view of the lake. At first glance, the room appeared to be fine, with one double and one twin bed. When we went to bed, my husband in the full and me in the twin, we...

I'm giving this Motel a 5 rating because of the location, the great outdoor seating (rare to find even in good hotels/motels) Wonderful views. The room was basic, no bells or whistles, so to speak, but it did have micro/fridge & coffee maker. It was clean. Front desk very nice. Short walk down to a nice Mexican restaurant. Would most...
