We stayed at this motel for 3 nights. It was an excellent choice. We had a fridge and coffee maker in our room so we shopped for groceries in town and were able to have breakfast in our room. For dinners, we were conveniently located to restaurants across the street. The motel is also across the street from a beautiful... More

What a great little place. I have to say right out of the gate this place is spotless, seriously I have stayed in many 4 & 5* hotels that don't hold a candle to this place for cleanliness. Yes it's older and has some cosmetic things amiss but nothing that should impact your stay. We had a room with two... More

Stayed at the Ocean Crest Motel for 2 nights in March 2015. When we first entered the room it had a strange odour, but after a little while of leaving the doors and windows open it was okay. I think they used a strong cleaning solution(?) The rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable. We rented one with a small kitchenette... More

Lovely, clean, friendly and great location. Large, clean and comfortable room with a bay window, two comfortable chairs and a bouquet of flowers on the sill. Only a three minute walk to an excellent restaurant, Dee'z. Across the street to the beach, ocean and birds - lots and lots of birds. We'll be back.

Nice, clean room with 2 queen beds. There was cross ventilation, so we didn't need to use the AC at night. There was a sweet spray smell in the room which was a bit strong, but otherwise everything was fine.

This small motel had a great location and the owner was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were your basic style motel rooms. The place was clean and quite had everything you need. We would stay here again.

The only reason I stayed at the Ocean Crest was because I couldn't get a room at the two nearby hotels on the waterside. Ocean Crest is a low-budget place, only not a low-budget price -- $97.75 for a single person for one night, after season. Everything in the room looked about 10 years old. For $100, the room didn't... More

Arrived late at night after a long drive and found this place. No barganing about the 99 dollar unfortunately, but the price/quality was definately ok. Friendly folks and the rooms and locations are very good. Near a few restaurants and bars. All in all a pleasant short stay.

We stayed here for one night and enjoyed a relaxing time. We also enjoyed the sun on the chairs by the grass at the back of the motel. The room itself was spacious, comfortable and very clean. As others say its across from the beach but it's also close to places to eat and so we just walked to dinner... More

Never ever felt a bed or chairs that hard in my life. Bed is a mattress on top of a solid wooden box no give at all. Reclining chairs are the same. Pillows are hard as rocks too tired to sleep on top of three pillows and couldn't stay on them. Paid for two nights going to beg for second... More
