It could have been better if the kitchenette has a separation from the bedroom. But with the price, it was okay. Though are other accommodations across the road in the beach front or the ones close to the gas station and seaside walk

The room was probably updated within the last 10 years and I would describe the amenities as 'sturdy', built to last and easy to clean. The shower was okay and the I...

We stay at this property several times a year when commuting between our house or going on trips. An older, family run motel, but the rooms are always clean and the owners friendly.

Ocean Crest motel was very nice, both clean and quiet, and priced better than rent for the month I stayed! The host - gracious, and he always gave me a smile and a wave. Lots of hot water for a shower, wifi never cut out, well-stocked kitchenette. I'd recommend Ocean Crest for long-term accommodation.

Very nice and helpful owners with a well maintained and more then adequate accommodations. This was great value for the money and would recommend to anyone staying in the area. There were also some good restaurants close by, and the beach/shore is right across the road to walk over to. Great experience overall!

What a lovely experience! We walked into a very clean, large, two queen sized beds and well lit room. The extra touches were folded napkins in our coffee cups, the shower curtain was fanned through the shower bar and the two chairs and luncheon table was a huge bonus. We loved the outdoor patio! Apparently they have small kitchenette rooms...
