“Great secluded get away!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Beautiful views, rooms with fireplaces (and yummy truffles waiting) clean and well stocked with fridge and microwave. Beautiful swimming area with tile hot tub (very clean, and I'm in the biz!) rustic bar just down the block called the Seagate with good pizza and friendly locals. Also a beautiful staircase to a secluded sandy beach. Staff was helpful and knowledgeable of the area. We will definitely be staying there again, only a couple hours from Tacoma.

Room Tip: We were in 402, right off the beach with a beautiful view. 302 was next to the pool.

Any visit to the Washington coast is a surprising occasion but our recent visit at the Ocean Crest Resort was just outstanding. Located on a bluff overlooking Pacific Beach, the Ocean Crest has updated its north building so it's ideal for couples and families -- even pets. Our room's deck overlooking the ocean was framed by stately trees offering sweeping views and gorgeous sunsets -- some say the best on the coast. A handy boardwalk takes you directly to the uncrowded beach and easy access to the surf. The Curtright family that has run the resort for fifty years are as friendly and accommodating as possible. When the air turned chilly, we fired up the wood-burning fireplace for a cozy snuggle by the picture windows. A perfect getaway.

Room Tip: Choose one of the large rooms in the newer (400) building to the north. The Ocean Crest Restaurant i...

There is pretty much nothing to do in Moclips, but go to the Beach. This place is located on a bluff just above with stairway access on the property. Rooms are large, and ours had a VIEW. On a clear day I'm sure we could see Japan. A family establishment that is beautifully run. The room was spotless. What a nice surprize!

This resort has good service, comfortable (tall) beds, & access to the gym/pool across the hwy. Depending on the room, you will get a view of the ocean as well. No restaurant on side since the old one burned, but supposedly they are rebuilding.

(Studio Room) I found our adequate, yet lacking. TVs are small and outdated with a hand-crafted stand with dvd player. No microwave in the room. Bathroom was small and the toilet even smaller. With that said, it was still comfortable and the bed was excellent! The only real negative we had was the road noise and thin doors made noisy neighbors.

We were offered a good rate and even offered a special by the desk clerk who was friendly and helpful.

We would stay here again. 4 of 5 in our opinion - with some above updates, we would upgrade our rating!

Room Tip: Not all rooms are ocean view, but you can see it with a short walk from most rooms. Expect some roa...

We just got home after four gorgeous days and three relaxing nights at the Ocean Crest. What a fabulous place! Our room (401--a large studio with disabled accessibility) was immaculately clean and well-maintained. The view was out of this world. The staff was unfailingly friendly and helpful. I know we'll be going back!

We returned to Ocean Crest after an absence of a few years. The resort suffered a devastating fire in Jun 2011 taking out the restaurant, gift shop, Native American collection. However, the rooms were unaffected. My partner and I have just spent a wonderful 3 nights. We always stay in rm 401 which is on the corner ground floor with our own patio & small yard on a moderate cliff overlooking the ocean. Our room has fabulous views of the ocean from 2 sides. We have a large bathroom, 2 comfortable queens, nice dining table by window, microwave, small refrig, tv and wifi. The Seattle Times is delivered to the room daily. The resort maintains a high level of cleanliness and quality accomodations. What a wonderful way to spend some rejuvenating time at the ocean.

Room Tip: Room 401 has roll in shower and fabulous view. I believe 402 is similar but with regular shower. I...
