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

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

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

We stayed here two nights, the rooms were very clean and the property was well maintained. The staff were very friendly. Not much for breakfast just had oatmeal and coffee. The rooms facing the highway are a little noisy. We had room 18 which was on the corner of two walk ways lots of foot traffic you could here and... More

Thanks for the review! We're sorry about the foot traffic outside of the room; unfortunately, it's somewhat unavoidable, especially during the busy season. The ocean view rooms are certainly more desired than the garden view rooms, but we do have the back deck for all of our guests to use. More

We stayed in a beach-side room for two nights and agree with other reviewers that being right on the beach is a neat experience. The view was terrific. The motel is modest but clean and well managed. If you're picky about soap, bring your own, because the soap bars were dry and crackly, but everything else was perfectly fine. We... More

Great stopping point in driving up the coast and through the Redwoods. Didn't choose the beach view (to save a few bucks), but it was okay. We checked in right as the sun was setting and caught the most beautiful sunset on the water. Hotel has a beautiful view- couldn't have asked for more. Really stopped in for a quick... More

Thanks for the review! We're glad to see that you enjoyed your stay. Summertime is busy, so your advice to book early is very sound. I'll let the housekeepers know that you approved of their work; we like to think we've got some of the best housekeepers around! More

The Crescent Beach Motel's perfect location on the beach on the outskirts of town trumps the outdated rooms and lack of amenities. We knew going in that the rooms were old looking, and we got exactly what the photos online showed. No false advertising, no worries. But our experience here at the motel was wonderful! Having a room with a... More

Thanks for the review! We do strive to provide a safe location for our guests and being a couple of miles south of Crescent City proper does help to isolate us a little bit. We have been working on getting more amenities in the room, though it is slower going than we would like. The building is a bit long... More

This was a nice surprise. The motel is very clean and right on the beach. The location couldn't have been more perfect.

Great access to the beach and clean rooms. Lady at the desk really pushed the Good Harvest for food but the menu looked too busy to be anything close to fresh or homemade. Had dinner in town at Northwoods (meh) and breakfast at the Apple Peddler (awesome!) before taking off down the 101 to Napa. No A/C (air it out... More

Thanks for the review! Having grown up in Crescent City, I can tell you that air conditioning is pretty rare around here. The temperatures just don't tend to get all that warm. There actually is a hair dryer in every room, generally in the drawer beneath the television. We don't really have a better spot to put them, unfortunately, but... 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
