Believe me these are not fancy rooms! But they are clean & do meet ones needs! The reason we always stay here while driving the California Coast all the way from Southern Calif, to Oregon, this motel is where we stay when up that far north in Cali! The reason being , it is the only motel in Crescent City... More

We loved our night at Crescent Beach Motel, and wished we could have stayed longer. The location on the wild beach is just fabulous. You leave your room by the back door and you are immediately on the beach. We spent a long time on the patio (there are two chairs outside for each room) enjoying some wine and the... More

Great location. No air conditioning so you need to leave your windows to the highway open with lots of semi's traveling all thru the night and neighbors sitting right outside your door on the boardwalk while you're trying to sleep. The best thing about this hotel were the towels and the shower. Would never stay here again. Very thin walls.... More

The location is the sole reason to stay here. Not much going on in crescent city so having a place to stay with an amazing view is well worth it. It most likely hasn't been refurbished since the 80s and is overdue. Staff is friendly enough and all is clean. The sound of the ocean is why stay here

We arrived at the Crescent Beach Motel and were a little underwhelmed. It is an older roadside motel. Check in was quick and efficient. We got the exact room we had reserved. The room was clean and tidy. The bathroom was dated but also clean. The accommodations are serviceable, and none of that really matters. This motel is right on... More

This little place is older, but spotless and updated. The best part is that every room stops out onto a boardwalk and then the beach. Got to see people riding horses on the beach right outside our room. The prices were very reasonable and the staff was really warm and helpful. The hotel goes out of the way to provide... More

Oh my goodness! Literally steps to the beach! Such a relaxing, perfect spot. The motel is simple with no amenities but very clean and tidy. Friendly staff, just an ideal spot. My room faced the ocean. You can listen to the waves all night. It was so peaceful . The rooms are dated but that didn't bother me at all.... More

This is all about location. The motel is on the beach, nothing fancy, no amenities. The room was small but clean and the bed was comfortable. We got some takeout for dinner and sat on the communal back porch with a bottle of wine and enjoyed the sunset on the beach. Don't expect anything more and you will be pleased.

To us, this Motel is one of our favorite stops up the California Coast. The Rooms are as close to the Beach below as you can get without a Surfboard or Fishing License, LOL!!! As advertised, listening to the surf when going to bed is very relaxing, though, it is also tough to get out of bed the next morning... More

My wife and I booked this motel as we finished our three day tour of the Redwood National Park area (the prior two nights we stayed on southern end of park in Trinidad, ca). The hotel was clean and the staff gave good advice on where to eat that night. I was impressed with just how close the back door... More
