You get what you pay for is true in many cases. This hotel was under $100 and it was clean and the staff was friendly. It was right on the beach and you could walk along the stretch of beach. There was free wifi and the front desk staff was efficient and accommodating. There was a TV in the room... More

What ever the hotel lacks (which is considerable) the views and how close the beach is make up for it all. Reasonable rate, odd room layout, small uncomfortable beds, out dated heating system but clean. Most rooms come with a sliding glass door in back so you can just walk right out on the beach. But if the glass is... More

This was just a sleep over stop on our Road Trip to Portland. The motel is easy to find, just off Highway 101. It's toward the end of town but still close as the town is quite small, in fact so small that there isn't even a 7-Eleven! So get your snacks and drinks before you get there. The best... More

We stayed just one night at the Crescent Beach Motel and paid $116. Check in and out was very efficient. The room was more than adequate, decorated in the traditional generic motel style. The bed was comfy and we had a lovely view directly onto the Ocean. The door of the room was literally feet away from the beach. Shower... More

You cannot deny that the view from this Motel is spectacular - even when we went on a rainy, humid, colder day. The surrounding neighborhood is kind of dive-y, with more motels, but that's okay - it's a great stop on the way to the Redwoods. We ate at a local place (got takeout for the Motel room) and it...

Nothing fancy to this place really, but the lady at the front desk was quite friendly, and the direct access to a relatively untraveled beach right on the Pacific makes up for any lack of fanciness. The town of Crescent City really doesn't have much going on, which makes this kind of a funny spot to stop, but, again, being... More

Thanks for the kind words! Crescent City is a small town and there isn't really a thriving social scene here, but it does have a lot of natural beauty. We're glad you chose to stay with us and experience a little bit of that nature with us. We hope your travels find you safe and that if you're ever in... More

Last time we visited was three years ago and we intended on staying only one night. Luckily we were able to book a second after we saw the room and its ocean view. Loved the experience of staying right on the beach. Have stayed at other "beach hotels" and had to walk long staircases or trekked a distance just to... More

Thanks for the review! We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your second stay with us. October was a little wet this year, but I tend to think the beach and ocean have a different sort of charm when it is raining (even the storms are neat, but I stay indoors). We hope you'll be able to stay longer next... More

I selected the Crescent Beach Motel based on TripAdvisor reviews. I was enamored by the idea of staying right on the beach on our trip to the redwoods. When my husband called to book a room, the lady he spoke with recommended Room #8 as one with a good view. The motel was reminiscent of the motels of my childhood... More

showed up in the afternoon with no reservations and the man at the front desk asked what kind of room we wanted. My son traveling with me had never experience the ocean or the beach so He gave a double queen room only 50 feet from the beach. My son spent the next 4 hours walking, taking pictures and enjoying...

I'd kind of forgotten about this place, as I had stayed here years ago, but couldn't remember the name of it to book it for this trip. However, in perusing the travel brochures we picked up along the way, I called and cancelled the fancier place we were to stay and booked this instead! You won't find a closer place... More

Thanks for the review! I never really consider the stark contrast that the ocean view provides as opposed to living in a landlocked area, but it must be a neat experience. We really are in a safe area; being a mile or two south of town offers us a bit of seclusion. I have fallen asleep on the couch with... More
