I stayed for just one Friday night for a brief trip to Ashland. My room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the night was very quiet, even with the motel being on the main road into town. The room included a mini frig and microwave-always nice to have when traveling. The shower was piercing with great pressure. It actually...

At first glance this appears to be a typical roadside motel, but looking closer it's much more than that. The buildings and grounds are well kept and very clean. The owners take great pride in taking care of everything and they are some of the friendliest people you can meet, very down to Earth! Every room has internet service (seemed...

I have stayed here for years. I come to Ashland to Ice Fish and it is close to my launching points. Its nice to haul your gear right in the door to thaw before the next day. Its clean and comfortable and the owners are very nice people. I have taken groups here and summer or winter, its my go...

We stayed at the Crest Motel in August. It's clean, comfortable and priced right. And the view can't be beat. We would gladly stay here again. We especially enjoyed the wide front lawn with the tables out under the tall pines.

We were on a week long road trip thru Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan and did not have reservations any place. We stopped in the Crest Motel for the evening since we noticed a well maintained exterior and well manicured lawn. When we walked in, the owner stated she only had 2 rooms left-this is a good sign on a Monday...

We have stayed at the Crest each time we visit Ashland. The room is simple, clean, neat, no frills. It is a great place to rest up while busy out and about during the day. In the evening and in the morning it is quite pleasant to walk over to the numerous benches and sip your beverage of choice. We...

We stayed for 2 nights during peak summer season, and this motel is a fine place to stay if you seek a nice view of the lake bay, don't want to overpay, and aren't looking for any great luxuries. Although right up against Hwy 2, it was quiet enough. Nice big grassy area in front of the motel for sitting,...

We were on a motorcycle trip and like to stay at a place where the bike can be parked directly in front of our door. It had a very inviting appearance. Well manicured yard with several benches to sit on and view Lake Superior. The view is breathtaking. You can walk across the street and access the walking/bike path which...

This was our second time to stay at the Crest. again, we found our room clean with a comfortable bed. The place is easy to find. The view is great. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset. A draw back was the wifi. We could not connect in our room. I was able to get online by standing outside near the office....

We come to Ashland every year. The Crest is a family owned hotel , it has large rooms , clean and comfortable beds. We stayed 9 nights. We are gone almost all day so we don't need fancy rooms. The owner was wonderful to us. She had given us lots of sugestions on the best beaches to go to and...
