A friend and I stumbled upon the Crescent Beach Motel while traveling between California and Oregon. We didn't expect much for the price of the rooms ($67 for his facing 101, $80 for mine facing the beach). What we got was a bargain.
The motel is a little outside of town, close enough to be convenient but far enough away to be quiet. The rooms are small and basic, but comfortable enough and absolutely spotless. The bedding even smells nice.
As other reviewers have noted, don't expect big chain amenities. There are no phones, coffee makers, fridges, or microwaves in the rooms. Cell service is spotty if you have AT&T. The wifi is fast and reliable, though. (I'm actually using it to write this review!)
Oceanfront rooms open to a boardwalk overlooking attractive landscaping and a beautiful cove. It takes less than a minute to walk down to the beach.
The staff is wonderfully friendly and helpful.
We liked this place so much that we stayed again when our travels took us back through town. I don't expect to get out this way often, but you can bet that I'll stay here every time I do.
