We stayed in room 1 and the room next to us was VERY noisy. We had two people stay next to us and we could hear every step their children took. I had to buy a fan to drown out the noise. The pictures of the beach were better than what we saw when we stayed.

Thank you for the review. A score of one does seem a bit harsh, but to each their own. I am sorry that you found us so sub-standard. Unfortunately, we do not handpick who gets which room and people with children are just as welcome here at Crescent Beach Motel as those without. We were essentially full to capacity during... More

Stayed here a couple of months ago and it was great tried it again and it was just as good. Made my reservation for next month and I know 30 days is too long to wait! Staff was friendly and the room was neat and clean.

If you are looking for a five star hotel with all the bells & whistles, then this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a reasonable priced ocean front room then, this is the best place for you! You are literally steps from the beach. When you open the window and/or sliding glass door all you hear... More

My wife and I stayed at this small motel for 3 nights. The location is ideal, located on the beach and less than 100 yards from the sea. The rooms are small, but clean, with a sliding glass door, deck and deck chairs. Parking is at your door and it is very quiet. Your location is ideally suited to explore... More

We got in after dark, but as soon as we checked onto our room, we opened the sliding glass door and it was like the ocean ws right there! The seagulls know the guests give them handouts, and there were 3 or 4 waiting on the deck. It was really funny! Comfortable, clean, and basic room, with a million dollar... More

This is not a modern hotel but it is very nice, the staff is friendly and the view of the Pacific Ocean is amazing!! Our room was very spacious and had a large window to view the ocean. The window opened so we could hear the waves crashing all night. We sat out on the deck to watch the sun... More

This motel is in a great spot. Right on the beach. We were really excited to stay here. That ended ended when we put the key in the door for room three. Did not open. Had the unhappy clerk come struggle with it...she told us this was common! This happened again when we left for dinner. Very disturbing, actually. Walls... More

Thanks for the review! I'm very sorry to hear that you had such issues with the door. While it is somewhat common for the doors in the back to be a bit difficult (they get sand in them off the beach), it is very rare for rooms 1-19 to have any issues at all. While I was not working on... More

If you are driving past Crescent Beach looking for simple comforts, it is a decent place to stay for a night or two. There isn't anything fancy, so if you are expecting 5-star service or be provided the works then skip this place. However, if you wish to be a short 5-min drive from Crescent City, experience peace & quiet,... More

Thanks for the review! We're happy to see you enjoyed yourselves at our little motel on the beach! I strongly feel that the no smoking policies we've put into place have been great for the atmosphere around the motel; I'm glad to see you noticed this. We actually have a hose spigots in a few places for people to rinse... More

This motel is the epitome of roadside motels. But unlike roadside motels it has a fantastic view of the ocean. I gasped when I walked in the door and saw the ocean directly out the back door. It has a great deck along the backside with chairs, and you can step off the deck and walk across a little yard... More

Thanks for the review! We're glad you enjoyed your stay. We are a bit off the beaten path (a mile or so south of Crescent City), so it would definitely be quite a trek to walk to the store. We do have a fair number of guests that hike down the beach to the harbor to check out the restaurants,... More

Thanks for the review! Admittedly, we do not have all of the amenities of the bigger motels/hotels, but we do offer refrigerators for an additional $5 per night. There is a microwave next to the office for all of our guests to use as well. Also, I'd note that the worry of tsunami is pretty minimal. They're not common in... More
