This business is closed and gated. I don't have any further information about The Gardenia Motel in Cresent City CA. It is hard to write 200 characters about a place that is out of business. It is hard to write 200 characters about a place that is out of business.

We needed a last minute place to stay on a busy weekend and everybody else was booked up. The people who run this place are very nice. Other than that - yech tooey - and, I think I even got a bed with brand new clean bedspreads. I took a washcloth and soap and cleaned the remote control. The washcloth... More

I arrived in Crescent City at 10 pm on the evening of August 1, 2012, and all the motels had "no vacancy" signs lit up. All motels except for the Gardenia Motel. The best way to describe this place is to call it "sketchy". For $62.99 (plus tax) I did not expect much of the Gardenia Motel, and it lived... More

This hotel was awful! There were yellow stains on the sheets. I was not expecting anything special or pretty, but at least it could be clean. Do not stay here!! There are hotels all over... This place is not worth any money.

On our way down the coast we stayed at this little gem. Oh my. We had booked in advance via booking.com, where not much was to be found about this motel. Boy, I sure wish we would have checked out TA about this! Pulling onto the parking lot you realize that the surrounding area is somewhat dodgy. Some of the... More

My wife and I were doing a scenic tour down 101 and Crescent City was our goal to make a stop for the night. We checked several hotels while coming into town and they were a bit higher priced than my wife wanted. We stopped here, the price after all taxes was only $55 which made my wife happy. This...
