We recently stayed here (for 2 nights the first week of August 2014) and had such a wonderful time. It literally is on the beach, so after a day of playing in the redwoods you can come back to the beach. We stayed with our 6 year old and 1.5 year old and they had a great time. It isn't... More

This facility is very dated, we stay two nights in 2 different rooms due to availability when booking on line. The first room had a strange set up two queen beds with large partition which oddly blocked off the room and enclosed the bathroom, which was 2 feet from the one bed. The TV was in the hallway, which could... More

Booked this place for it's location on the beach and was so happy that I did! I thought it was priced appropriately for its location. The room was clean, spacious and had a sliding glass to out the back of the room to see the ocean. There was a shared back patio that you stepped out o to where you... More

While traveling through the Redwoods we stopped and stayed here. Nothing fancy but a great place to stay. Close to resturants, aquarium, lighthouse, and just right off the deck is the beach. Can even see the ships coming into the harbor.

Simple, basic, clean. Decorated in the 70s, hasn't been updated since. Really, not much to say... everything was "as described" in the promo material. There aren't too many options in Crescent City for lodging, and so we went with CBM. My only real criticism is that it's very overpriced for what it is. For $112.00 or so, I would have... More

If you have a high preference for stylish, renovated, new hotel rooms, then this property may disappoint. It is definitely a "motel" - with all rooms on one level, each with its own separate entrance from the outside deck. The decor is definitely dated, and I'm sure more regular deep cleanings or interior painting couldn't hurt; but the room is... More

Thanks for the review! We're happy that you were able to enjoy your birthday on the beach. You are correct about the salt air and humidity taking its toll on everything around here (not just the motel, but cars, too). We have updated three rooms so far with new carpet, paint and fixtures and are planning on doing more in... More

Have stayed here for years when traveling north. If you want somewhere to stay without the frills or noise, this is the place. Walk in one door and out the other onto the beach. Space for long quiet walks and plenty of seashells for memories. Near enough to restaurants, aquarium, lighthouse and a casino. Have stayed alone and with family.... More

We're glad that you have found us enjoyable for so long! You are correct in stating that we are not super "frilly," but we are working on improving the rooms and addressing our guest's wants. The newest beds we've added are a bit softer than our previous beds, the keurig coffee machines have been well-received, and the ocean view will... More

It has a great location on the beach but that's about all it has going for it. This is a very rundown very old motel. The furniture is old and the chairs had stains on it. The bathroom sink had rust stains and my wife refused to use the shower. It's right off the highway so its loud. The curtain... More

I'm sorry that you did not find our motel up to your standards. One star does seem a little harsh, but to each their own. You are correct that this is an old motel, though we do try to not present a "rundown" look. We have been reupholstering all of our chairs, though it is slow going with only one... More

My wife and I stayed here one night on a road trip up the coast. A friend of hers recommended it to us, so I booked on their web site where I was able to pick what room I wanted. It would have been helpful to see a layout of the hotel so I knew where the room was that... More

Thanks for the review! We're very glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. I've always loved having the large, walkable beach in the back. Walking the beach can be a very soothing experience! More

My son & I stayed here for 1 night while traveling from Portland through the Redwood Forest. I had originally booked a garden room but when we arrived I inquired about a beach view. With luck, they had one available. I'm so glad I upgraded. We live in CO but I'm from the West coast. I do miss the sound... More

We're happy that you chose to upgrade to the ocean view room and that you were able to enjoy the views! If we missed a hair, we do apologize. We're aware of the local channel issue, but so far Charter has been unable to fix it and keep it fixed. The sand dollars have been very plentiful this year. Many... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you get any closer to the beach than from Crescent Beach Motel rooms, your blankets would get wet! Beachfront lodging is what we offer. In pure comfort, you can go to sleep to the sound of crashing waves (or shut them out if you prefer) and wake to see the beachfront without lifting your head from pillow. Open the sliding glass door and smell the fresh ocean salt air. It's a dream come true - Oceanfront lodging- at a price you can afford! There is nothing to spoil your ocean front view from our rooms. No high rise buildings or fast food signs -- just miles of open beachfront - totally unspoiled. Enjoy walks on the beach, whale watching, kite flying, or just lounging on the deck watching the ocean. When you want something more, just a few miles away there are tide pools and ancient, tall Redwoods in Stout Grove. Experience beachfront lodging at the Crescent Beach Motel - the ONLY motel on the beach! ... more   less
