This place is by no means spectacular as far as motel rooms go. In fact, it's extremely outdated & in desperate need of room upgrades. That being said, you're paying for it's location, right on the beach. Most of your time will likely not be spent in your room, but exploring the beach outside (weather pending) and the lovely redwood...

Thank you for the review! We're sorry to hear that you find our rooms substandard, but we have been making consistent upgrades. In just the last year we've upgraded all of our TVs, added Keurig coffee machines to all of the rooms, upgraded the wifi, eliminated and renovated our smoking rooms and are in the process of getting refrigerators in...

We stayed here with a group of Girl Scouts for 2 nights. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Of course, you can't beat the view and the short walk to a wonderful beach. I have stayed here since I was a little girl(a loooong time ago) and always look forward to coming back.

I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit with us. I met a few of the nice young ladies and they seemed to be enjoying themselves in the sand and surf (they also liked our "guard dog"). I do apologize about the mix-up during check-in and want all of you to know that that will not happen again. Thank...

If you want to be able to step from your bed and onto the sand, this is the place! We spent two nights here on a family trip and we are still pining for those morning and evening walks on the beach! It was heavenly to sip coffee on the deck every morning and finish off with a glass of...

We're very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The weather has been top-notch these past few months and the beach has been completely full of sand dollars. We are happy that we could make your stay a good one!

Our neighbors recommended this place to us. It's the ONLY motel right on the beach. We arrived, sat out watching the waves rolling, drank wine. Later had dinner nearby. Then came back to walk the beach during sunset. The following morning had breakfast watching the waves roll in. Included in the price was room, taxes & fees, and a basic...

A bit old fashioned but its right on the beach! So worth the price. We were recommended this and would recommend to others. We choose room 1 so we only had 1 neighbour. Hopefully all rooms will soon have a fridge! Everything else was fine. Thanks :)

We're so happy that you were pleased with your visit. We are almost done with some renovations and will have fridges available in a handful of rooms by Memorial Day (fingers crossed!).

We arrived for just an overnight stay on April 16th after driving in from Portland. The hotel was older as we expected and it was very clean. There were a lack of plugs which for us is hard since we like to charge up everything for recording the sites the next day. Loved waking up to the surf. That was...

We stayed for 3 days and loved it. Beds are a little hard, but who cares when the beach is so close. Very clean and just a wonderful location. I loved being able to see and hear the ocean from our room.

I want to thank Cade, Rosio and Mary Ann. They all helped in making our trip great. We were allowed to check in early and leave a little late because the house was not booked on either side of our visit. We only stayed one night and wished it could have been longer. The guest house is dated, its true....

I'm glad to see you enjoyed your stay! I'll definitely get a pad of paper and some pens out there for next time. I'll also see what I can do about some sort of activity for the rainy days. Rocio and Mary Ann will also be pleased to hear that you were all happy with the House. Thanks again!

The Crescent Beach Motel is a pleasant "old fashioned" motel. The rooms are clean and comfortable. There is nothing fancy about this place, but it is a very enjoyable place to stay. It is right on the beach and a very short distance to downtown.

I can't say enough good things about this place. The price is way beyond reasonable! $88.00 a night with a clear ocean view from your bed! It's a very basic motel but that's how they're able to keep their rates down. They do have kurig (spelling) coffee makers with Costco coffee. It's very clean and all the staff are extremely...

Thanks for the kind review! I'm sorry to hear about the slow internet speeds; we are somewhat at the mercy of our provider and they are not known around Crescent City as being terribly reliable. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed everything else, though and we definitely can't wait to see you again!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you get any closer to the beach than from Crescent Beach Motel rooms, your blankets would get wet! Beachfront lodging is what we offer. In pure comfort, you can go to sleep to the sound of crashing waves (or shut them out if you prefer) and wake to see the beachfront without lifting your head from pillow. Open the sliding glass door and smell the fresh ocean salt air. It's a dream come true - Oceanfront lodging- at a price you can afford! There is nothing to spoil your ocean front view from our rooms. No high rise buildings or fast food signs -- just miles of open beachfront - totally unspoiled. Enjoy walks on the beach, whale watching, kite flying, or just lounging on the deck watching the ocean. When you want something more, just a few miles away there are tide pools and ancient, tall Redwoods in Stout Grove. Experience beachfront lodging at the Crescent Beach Motel - the ONLY motel on the beach! ... more   less
