My entire family has been vacationing here every summer for over 20 years! The owner Paul goes above and beyond. Huge play area for kids, the walk to the beach is seconds away! Lots of outdoor toys, grills, tables, etc. The Pool is covered and enclosed with a lot of tables. The crest feels like HOME to us.

Easy checkin, great staff, other guests where fantastic and became part of your vacation. Second year traveling to this resort and enjoyed it just as much. Rooms are clean, close to the beach and all activities, great outlet shopping less than an hour away. It's Old Orchard in the Summer, it's loud, it's busy, it's sand & sun and rain... More

First time here, the greeting was exceptional, I even noticed the manager going out of his way to accommodate other guest that made there own errors regarding there bookings. The room was totally unexpected for a motel, it was very spacious, clean, the property was very well maintained. This area is a busy section of Old Orchard, it is what... More

We spent the weekend at the Crest with my son and his youth basketball team .The location was fantastic, amenities were great, but the commitment to our needs by the owners topped all. The owners accommodated a group barbecue, access to the pool and beach accessories. It felt like we were at home! Can't wait to visit again

This was our second year using the Crest Motel as our home base and we brought twice as many in our group this time. The Crest and the staff were twice as impressive. They could easily rest on the fact that their location is top notch in terms of distance to the strip and the beach but they still go... More

Just spent five wonderful days at The Crest Motel, fifth year! Stayed in a different room this time....like an apartment. Full kitchen, two nice size bedrooms with a TV and DVD in each and a nice bathroom. As always, very clean and the kitchen had everything we needed....and a gas grill right outside our door. Also, a very nice porch... More

Just returned from an amazing 6 day stay at the Crest. This is a great place for a quiet family getaway. Stayed at the cottage with 4 people and had plenty of room. Very clean, well organized kitchen, comfortable mattresses, and plenty of towels. WiFi connection was very good. The bathroom had been redone and updated. Nice new decorating scheme... More

Seemed ok online, but in reality, the place is run like a campground. The staff failed to mention that there was a large group of basketball families at the motel. The entire property was overtaken by them. We had to walk through a basketball game to get through the parking lot, then maneuver around guests who were lounging in the... More

We spent two night at the Crest and had an excellent time. The staff was outstanding, the rooms were very clean and the pool and amenities (including a popcorn machine!) were wonderful.
