Crescent Beach Motel
Ranked #4 of 19 Hotels in Crescent City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 28, 2012

This older motel is located right on highway 101 and directly on a wide, beautiful stretch of beach. What a view! And the beach has lots of sea shells and driftwood for collectors.

Our room was a single queen so the room was not cramped. I did see rooms with two beds that looked pretty hard to move around in, but ours was great. It was clean and smelled fine. Yes, it's a little dated with old carpet, but the bed was comfortable, there was a decent-sized closet, and nice chairs on the porch for watching the waves.

I'd go back with no qualms.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room facing the ocean!

I made a reservation with four people, than brought my daughter also (now 5 people) when we arrived they said we couldn't stay at the hotel with 5 in a rm. There wasn't another rm. Available and yes they'd still charge me if we left....wow.....ridiculous! GOD forbid if you have a large family. Was the view worth the hassle?? NO.

Hi Angie,
I want to personally apologize for any mistreatment and I also want to thank you for taking the time to post about the occupancy rules. The maximum occupancy that a room has is dictated by the number of beds. This is calculated by using 2 people per bed. A room with1 bed can have 2 people and a room with 2 beds can hold 4 people. So, when you made a reservation for four and showed up that same day with 5, it caused a problem that we were not able to remedy. This is not unique to this industry as the same situation would apply to sell out concerts and ball games where you are short by one ticket. We are very busy during that time of year and did not have another room available to handle the unexpected guest. The safety and comfort of our guests is very important to us.

We were on a family road trip on the west coast with our two young kids. We stay at the this motel because the tripadvisor.
The location was great. We could sit on the porch, and our kids can run on the beach. It's woke and clean beach, perfect for young kids.
But the room was really old and smelly. Beds were no good, and very small. The sink did not work very well, and it was very noisy.

It's the location that sets this pace apart. Right on the ocean with lovely views and a window that opens to let in the fresh sea breeze which was very welcome.

I stayed with my partner for one night in a standard room with a king-size bed which had a lesser view of the ocean than other pricier rooms.

Reception staff (Nathan) was very friendly and helpful, explained all our room options and recommended a restaurant nearby when we asked.

Room was pretty good, decent size with a good bed, big sofa, fridge, microwave etc. Free wi-fi is available and is a decent speed. Free breakfast also available but very average.

I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for one night with the family as part of a roadtrip along us-101. The hotel is ok; clean room and so-so beds but what set it apart for us was the location. Would recommend it to anyone visiting the redwoods.

I'll admit at first I was worried I had made a mistake by choosing to stay at the Crescent Beach Motel. Yes, the motel is dated and the rooms smelled a bit damp. However, this was a perfect example of making the most of the experience.

Our room had a sliding glass door out to a nice deck with really nice deck chairs looking out to the ocean. The motel was right on the beach - there's a short sandy path that goes to the beach.

We ended up meeting some great people around a bonfire one of them had on the beach. While our kids had a great time playing on the beach, we had some beers and enjoyed meeting the others who were staying at the motel and sharing stories of our vacations.

We had no idea our last night in the Redwoods would be so much fun and memorable. Even though we are used to staying at updated hotels, I would definitely stay here again because of the beach & ocean.

well located hotel, with excellent views for a great price. I am a light sleeper and thought 101 would bother me but it did not. Yes, it is simple, no fridge, nor microwave, nor phone but it was clean, staff was pleasant and there is coffee available in the morning. I would recommend this hotel for those that like to keep costs down and don't require "luxury."

Room Tip: i bleieve all rooms have sliding glass doors to the beach
