This is our favorite hotel at the coast. It’s worth the extra dollars to get an ocean view. They are in the process of renovating all rooms, so that’s exciting. We love the charm and the quirks, so hopefully they will leave some of that. The location is excellent for walking this perfect sandy beach. I’ve never found so many perfect sand dollars! The razor clamming is great here too. There are lots of stairs, which works great for working off the great food in their dining room.

Spent 1 night of our recent trip to Seattle, Olympic Peninsula and Alaska—wish we could have stayed another night. Location is breathtaking, rooms are excellent and well maintained (with balcony overlooking the ocean) and restaurant, though not inexpensive, is great. I had eggs Benedict (maybe best I’ve ever had) for breakfast, with a beautiful view of the Pacific. Knew it was going to be special when 1st thing we saw when going to register, was a bald eagle perched in a tree over 1 of the Resort buildings. It’s a great jumping off spot for a visit to Olympic National Park. Highly recommend.

My friend and I returned to Ocean Crest Resort after our first trip last September. We were both pleased that the quality and value of the stay was the same as before at 5 stars. This consistency will bring us back every time we are in town. The view from the cliff is breathtaking and our room was beautiful. We had a small kitchenette and the standing fireplace. There was a separate bedroom and it was really nice. Bed was comfortable and we both slept well

Room Tip: Be aware that getting to the beach is down through the ravine with about 10+ flights of stairs...

Our three-night stay at Ocean Crest was all we had hoped it would be! Our room had the most stunning views of the surf, accented by the windswept trees and lovely grounds. The unit--with a separate bedroom--was spacious and well decorated. We had a microwave and an induction hot plate, which was sufficient for preparing light meals. While the dishes and silverware were well stocked, we could have used a cutting knife and some larger microwavable bowls. Otherwise, we appreciated the provided salt and pepper. We did not eat at the (expensive) restaurant, but we heard from others that the food was very good. The stairs to the ocean beach were long, but those with limited mobility can easily drive to an accessible beach less than a half-mile away. The provided fire logs and the outdoor fire pit were greatly enjoyed by our group. I only give four+ stars because much of the inn is in need of an upgrade, but there are new owners, so perhaps that will happen soon. Of course, if you go now, you can benefit from some great winter prices, especially mid-week. We expect to return and hope to see this lovely old resort brought back to its full glory. It provided a wonderful respite, and the staff were friendly. And oh, the views!

Had a special of chanterelle mushrooms in a garlic, white wine sauce with garlic toast which was excellent. The chef should sell the sauce (it was that good). Decided to order the clam chowder which was excellent, also. Only complaint was no wine or beer, otherwise, they would have 5 stars

This was our choice for first night on a recent trip to Olympic Forest and it will be a repeat whenever we return. It was a girls weekend to decompress. They do have a beach access but it does include going up/down a few flights of stairs. Everything was excellent- we chose for location but that is just the beginning. We were warmly greeted when we got there. Our room was spectacular:Ground floor with covered parking overlooking the beach. Lots of space - beds, small eating area, fireplace plus a small balcony. The room was also very clean. The on-site restaurant had limited seating but you could order takeout. Highly recommend that option!

My wife and I stayed overnight at the Ocean Crest Resort during a trip to Olympic National Park. We had planned to stay at Lake Quinault, booked the Ocean Crest due to its location on the beach. Several things went wrong, yet it was one of the most enjoyable stays I have had at a hotel. Check-in was easy, and we were able to park in a covered space under our room. There are no elevators in our building, and all rooms were on the second or third level, so I had to carry our bags up the stairs. That was not a problem for me, but could be a problem for others. The room was large and very comfortable although the furnishings were dated. The view from our room was breathtaking. We live in a high-rise condo on the beach in Florida, so the sand and ocean were nothing out of the ordinary. But the trees, moss, and ferns in-between our room and the beach were so beautiful. The combination of primeval forest, beach and ocean can’t be beat. Once the sun went down, we lit a Duraflame log (provided) and enjoyed a fire in the wood-burning stove in our room. During our stay, the restaurant was closed during dinner hours, the ice machine wasn’t working, and it rained the entire time we were there. We drove a few minutes to the new Seagate community, bought pizza and a bottle of wine. We brought them back to our room and enjoyed dinner while looking at the forest and beach. While we were out, we also went for a drive on the beach – something I had never done before. The restaurant was open for breakfast beginning 8:30 the following morning. I had an omelet and my wife had the French toast. The food was delicious and tastefully plated. The servers were very personable, and the service was prompt. We had a window table which allowed us to enjoy a view similar to the view from our room. Olympic National Park is one of the most beautiful spots in North America, and the Ocean Crest Resort is one of the most beautiful places one can stay when visiting. We plan to return during and enjoy a longer stay next time.

Traveler beware, many of the positive reviews are for the restaurant and not the subpar accommodations. Rooms are accessed via open air hallways with thin doors facing the parking lot. You will hear other guests talking and slamming their car doors all stay. Accommodations are bare and rooms are cheap and dated. The bathrooms are reminiscent of a truck stop. It’s fine if you’re desperate for a place to sleep after hiking, but Ocean Crest doesn’t provide more than that. The motel quality is a shame because pictures of access to a beautiful beach via a few flights of stairs can draw you in. Go elsewhere if you are looking for a comfortable stay.

I have been loving my stay here. The grounds are beautifully kept. The stair walk to the beach is a nice touch. I especially loved the pool, hot tub, and sauna. All of the staff at the pool have been great plus the staff at the reception desk have been really nice. Multiple room types to choose from. I also enjoyed being able to sit on one of their lawns looking out over the bluff to see the beach and enjoy the sunsets. They also have a higher scale restaurant if you are interested

When we pulled up to this “resort” my heart dropped. Paint was peeling and it looked old, dirty and ramshackle. For $265 per night I expected a property that at least had been maintained. The room didn’t appear to have been updated since it was built in the 50’s and had stains in the carpet. Other than the carpet stains, the room was clean. We had planned to eat in the restaurant but it was closed that evening. WiFi is horrible and I had work to finish up so I had to go to a nearby restaurant to complete it. I’d think long and hard before paying $265 to stay at this resort.
