OCEANFRONT, SUNNY rooms with sliding glass doors for access to wonderful boardwalk, beach bonfire, sit on the rocks, or enjoy view of Crescent City beachline, amazing SUNSETS from your chair on the boardwalk. FRILLS not needed here. Clean & comfortable. Guests enjoy the ambience. A super retreat.

This was the first motel I saw upon entering Crescent City. The motel is outdated, but the location is spectacular! After driving through Crescent City, we decided to give this little place a try. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the staff was courteous and helpful. Breakfast is simple and healthy: oatmeal packets and fresh apples and...

Best lodging location in Crescent City. Right on the beach and on Hwy 101. Fantastic views of the ocean especially for sunsets. Rooms are clean but really dated. Beds were OK. Bathrooms need updating. TV only viewable from an old chair in middle of room -- not from either bed. Seriously a no frills motel but relatively cheap and again...location,...

Other hotels say and show you beachfront but they are lying to you. This is on the beach. You can leave your sliding door open and listen to the waves. We love coming here. It's so relaxing, you just get up and go out the door to the beach. Old motel. Kept up well. We will never stay anywhere else....

Great place to stay!!! Nice hotel nothing real fancy. But a great view,literally only steps from beach. I would recommend to any of my friends. Staff was Great. The person in an earlier review said it wasn't as close to beach as advertised. WILL THE ONLY WAY TO GET CLOSER IS TO HAVE A BOAT!!!!

Basic and clean. Comfortable bed, hot shower, with the magnificent Pacific Ocean literally right outside your door! No more need be said! But I'm told that I have to...friendly, cheerful staff. Quiet, with just the sound of the waves to help you sleep. Wonderful!

Due to a flight delay I was worried I might not arrive before the office closed. I called to let the motel know this and they were friendly, understanding, and helpful. They offered to leave a room key in a key box for me. I arrived about fifteen minutes before the office closed and was cheerfully greeted by name. I...

This little motel is a no frills stay that is simply charming. The views of the beach and ocean alone are worth the stay. For the area, we found the cost to be very reasonable as well. We used this location as a launch pad to do many hikes in the local area. We highly recommend Crescent Beach Motel and...

We were coming from Napa and just passing thru for a night. Perfect for just that. Nothing fancy but great access to the beach! Just open up your door and fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. Comfy beds!

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
