The only place we've ever stayed in Crescent City is the KOA down the road a few miles (Another treasure) but on this trip I wanted a toilet in the room (Ok, so I'm getting old!) so I chose this place because it is right on the beach, and I love the old motels from the 40's and 50's. (And,...

Thanks for the review and great pictures! We're happy that you enjoyed yourself here and hope that we will see you again in the future. We're currently working on the fridge issue and hopefully we'll be able to make your next stay as good as your last one.

I have stayed here numerous times and what keeps us coming back is that the motel is sitting just on the beach. You really cant find another place with this kind of location in the area unless you want to spend a ton of money. For the price, it's worth it... what we love: obviously the location, that every room...

Thanks for the kind review! We're glad that you enjoyed your stay and we are definitely looking to make some improvements in future. The building is a bit long in the tooth, so getting the electrical side of things in order is the most difficult aspect of our improvements, but we do hope to have fridges in all of the...

Only got to stay for 1 night as we were driving through. Fantastic location just out of the town itself, with direct access to the beach from your room. View is great and the sunset was excellent (guess we got lucky with the winter weather!). Price was spot on for quality of the motel. Room was large and clean and...

Thanks for the kind words! Happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The weather this winter has been a little atypical, but we're not going to complain. The sunsets truly have been magnificent.

We had a great time at this motel! Nice clean rooms. Just open your sliding glass doors and you are on a beautiful beach! We found lots of sand dollars, it was great fun for our family! The front desk was very friendly and helpful. You are also near great dining and entertainment with ocean world! We loved the gift...

We stayed in unit 7 which appeared to be in a newer wing of the motel. The room was standard motel fare for a midrange motel. Our room was a single queen with a table to sit at and a desk. The room was very clean including the bathroom which was spotless. Where this hotel shines is the location on...

Hi Mayhamfx, We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay and appreciate posting a great review. The cleaning team works very hard and I will let them know that you mentioned the cleanliness on a Trip Advisor review. A little praise like that will make their day (thank you).

Hi Russell B, Thank you for posting such a nice review and leaving the Kuerig coffee tip about bringing their own favorite flavors. If anyone needs extra blankets or pillows, we have them available in the office at no extra cost. You are so right about the sand dollars! I thought there would be a shortage after seeing so many...

Can't beat the location, the wide beach is right out the door of your room. Beautiful views, peaceful and quiet. Room was clean and nicely cared for. It's a motel--don't expect anything fancy by any means, but it's hard to beat for the location. The people who run the motel are friendly and helpful, there's coffee and fruit in the...

Nothing fancy about the Crescent Beach Hotel except the view. The room was clean and very basic. The hotel is on the beach. There is easy access for walking and we had a nice sunset view. There are no restaurants within reasonable walking distance. You will need to drive to town for dinning.

Hi PVR75, We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. If you ever need food delivered, there is a Thai restaurant and a pizza place that deliver right to your door. The Chart room is at the end of the beach and many people walk to and from lunch and dinner there, but it is about a mile each way....

You're kidding, right? I'm pretty sure there is not a lodging right on the sand for this price on the entire left coast. OK, maybe Mexico. And OK, it's never sunny in Crescent City. But if you love cool grey overcast days to walk on the beach, maybe do some writing or reading, this is your place. Single? Grab that...

I booked this motel based on the Trip Advisor reviews - just as it said it was! This is a delightful throwback to the 1960's when roadside motels were the standard. But what makes this above standard is its location - right on the beach! Go to their web site to select your exact room, with photos. Your back door...

Hi AGRMAG! Thank you for the fantastic review! We do hope that get a chance to stay here again. There are some hidden secrets around this area that some people stay here a few days to explore.

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
