We really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were dated but very clean. The views are spectacular. We witnessed an amazing sunset over the water right outside our room door. We would definitely stay again if we're in the area.

Thank you for the review! We don't have sunsets like the one you saw every night, but when the sky is clear, they can be spectacular!

Traveling with my mother we stayed here and thought we hit the best of the best. No not high rent district but to walk out the door and on the beach was what I am talking about. We found so many sand dollars. complete in tact. Room was clean. Chairs on porch to watch the sun set. No frills here. It is all about the location. Cleanroom and comfortable beds. Amen

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view.

I often travel from the Bay Area up to Crescent City to visit family and this is our new home away from home! This is a very safe, clean and modest motel and the view is the absolute best in town- the beach is right outside your door and nothing beats that. The Manager Chris and his Wife were really nice too.

Simple and Sweet best describes this place. The price is right, the view is to die for. Where else can you watch the sunset and rise over a water view from your nice warm room while the wind howls over the ocean. You can sit on the deck and sip your hot chocolate while you watch the sun go down. Take a walk on the beach which is right off the deck. We were extremely please and would highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: They all face the ocean with a view take your pick

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.

Room Tip: Spend the extra $13 for an oceanfront room!

This is an old fashioned hotel in a small town. Don't expect big chain amenities. The price was right, it was clean, and there was not a better location anywhere in town. We literally stepped out of the door of our room onto the beach. It doesn't get any better. The mattress was adequate, the salt air had us sleeping like babies. Ther is not breakfast offereed other than coffee and some oatmeal, but who cares. Give it a try!! Be sure to ask for a room facing the ocean. We were in room 129.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the ocean side!!

My husband and I absolutely loved this place.... Ocean front view and the price was right. I'm not one that needs a lot of fancy stuff, so it was perfect. As a matter of fact we will be staying there again at the beginning of april. We will be bringing friends that have never been there. I know they will love it. I cant wait to sit on the deck with my bff and a bottle of wine. In my opinion this place is perfect for a little get away!!!!!
