I have been going to View Crest since I was a baby. Its very nostalgic to me. My boyfriend and I visited November 2016 and it was just as great! Its relaxing to look out the back patio door to the ocean after a long day of hiking.

Having three rooms (bedroom w/tv, bathroom, living/kitchen w/tv, sofa & electric fireplace) made for a comfortable relaxing overnight stay. They even had the kitchen supplied with dishes, utensils, and a toaster in addition to a microwave & small refrigerator.

I loved this place. We stayed in cabin # 2. Had an amazing view of the ocean. Large cabin with full kitchen that we cooked all our meals in. From the back patio we could hear the seals in the AM (not loud enough to hear inside). Great bed and pillows. Very quiet location and friendly staff. Lots of restaurants,...

I was thoroughly impressed with our stay at View Crest Lodge. We ended up arriving later than planned and we messaged them to extend arrival time. We received a prompt and friendly response. When we arrived we were greeted by a sweet girl at the front desk and two adorable (English Bulldogs?). When we entered our little cottage it was...

The location for this hotel is just about perfect. Very close to probably the best restaurant in the area, Larrupin Cafe. And only 20 minutes from some of the best Redwood trails. Fireplace was wonderful, and the bed was great, but the room just shows some age. Sitting in a rain Forrest, I'm sure it ages faster than in a...

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate all guest feedback. The interior of your room was very recently remodeled, but the exterior does weather more quickly due to the constant Pacific Northwest coastal conditions. We do enjoy the vintage look of the exteriors, as these cottages have been around for quite some time! We...

These little cabins, situated just north of Trinidad, are just what a tired traveler needs. We stayed here on our way to and from the Bay Area, not wanting to brave the Siskiyous in winter. The cabins we stayed in have been remodeled and are so comfortable and clean! I love that the owners are a young family, working hard...

I like staying at places that are privately owned. The owners here are especially friendly & helpful. Our cabin was spacious, clean. Beds are very comfortable. Liked the quiet location. Not much of an ocean view, but close to neat oceanside parks. Not too far from Redwood National & State Park. Was an hours drive to Humboldt though. Only a...

On vacation in Northern California - we spent three nights at View Crest Lodge. Wish it was three weeks! Full kitchen, fireplace and deck with a view.

What a delightful find! The photos don't do justice to the experience. I was a bit unsure of booking a room in a shared building/cabin that looked old. However, it was a wonderful experience. We stayed in Building 7, in a Deluxe Q Suite. Everything in the cabin is top-notch. 2 flat screen tv's; nice setup for coffee/microwave/basic kitchen items;...

The rooms are separate cabins with kitchen. They are beyond walking distance from town. The cabins we had were nice and clean. The actual buildings were older. My bathroom had a couch in it. Where do you get that? There was wifi. It seemed that all of the hotels are similar in design. And View Crest is the best.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The particular cottage you stayed in is ADA, which explains the bathroom seating. We do hope you will consider us on any future visits to this area!
