If you are driving past Crescent Beach looking for simple comforts, it is a decent place to stay for a night or two. There isn't anything fancy, so if you are expecting 5-star service or be provided the works then skip this place. However, if you wish to be a short 5-min drive from Crescent City, experience peace & quiet,...

Thanks for the review! We're happy to see you enjoyed yourselves at our little motel on the beach! I strongly feel that the no smoking policies we've put into place have been great for the atmosphere around the motel; I'm glad to see you noticed this. We actually have a hose spigots in a few places for people to rinse...

This motel is the epitome of roadside motels. But unlike roadside motels it has a fantastic view of the ocean. I gasped when I walked in the door and saw the ocean directly out the back door. It has a great deck along the backside with chairs, and you can step off the deck and walk across a little yard...

Thanks for the review! We're glad you enjoyed your stay. We are a bit off the beaten path (a mile or so south of Crescent City), so it would definitely be quite a trek to walk to the store. We do have a fair number of guests that hike down the beach to the harbor to check out the restaurants,...

None of the regular amenities, microwave, minifridge. Had to lug cooler down to room, to have cold drinks and snacks in room. The best thing about the room is that it is Clean and has an Excellent view and access to the Ocean. Husband was worried about Tsunami because of the close location of the Ocean to the door of...

Thanks for the review! Admittedly, we do not have all of the amenities of the bigger motels/hotels, but we do offer refrigerators for an additional $5 per night. There is a microwave next to the office for all of our guests to use as well. Also, I'd note that the worry of tsunami is pretty minimal. They're not common in...

We stayed here over the weekend and will definitely be coming back. The rooms are on the smaller side but clean and comfortable and the staff is friendly and helpful. What the rooms lack in size, the views more than make up for. We stepped out our door and were within feet of the beach. We very much enjoyed the...

We stayed at this motel for two nights and I would stay here again. Rooms are cozy but very clean and updated. The staff is very friendly and helpful. What amazing sunsets from your room. Loved the k-cups in the room.

Thanks for the review! We've had some pretty stunning sunsets of late. The weather has been fantastic for the most part. Between the sunsets and the whales, there's a lot to see from our back deck. Thanks again and safe travels!

We stayed at this motel last night and before we left I booked another stay. Rooms are small but well kept with new carpets and vinyl. Not a lot of luxury but the location and the customer service was excellent and the price was great. We will be back.

Thanks for the review! We love to hear when a guest enjoyed their stay here. Our rooms are not huge, for certain, but we do have a few "larger" rooms. Rooms 15, 16 and 17 all have quite a bit of room in them. 12 and 19 also have a larger layout/feel. Unfortunately, there's not much to be done for...

Most of the rooms are right on the beach. Unfortunately we were late reserving and got one of the few non oceanside rooms. The motel is on a wonderful beach and steps from the ocean. If we stayed there again we would plan ahead and get an ocean view room, Our room was a bit musty smelling but the room...

Thanks for the review! We're glad you enjoyed your stay here. The rooms in the block building do tend to have a bit of a salty scent. We do our best to mask this, but have heard from most guests that they would prefer the natural scent to that of most air fresheners. The joys of a stone building in...

Perfect little affordable bungalow on the the beach. Nostalgic (but modernized) clean rooms, hey they even have K-Cups! Door opens to your deck, the dunes, the ocean. Just about everyone who was staying there were very friendly and laid-back. Sunsets from the deck are simply amazing! Staff is professional and the breakfast room had a nice fresh selection and is...

This hotel is right on the beach. Walk 10 feet and you are on the beach. Clean, not too modern, wonderful staff, close to harbor and restaurants.

We found this motel to be a great deal. To find a low priced, beachfront accommodation in California is pretty amazing. Yes, it isn't anything fancy, but it is clean. The rooms all open to a deck with chairs and beyond that is the ocean, so you can easily listen to the waves crash as you sleep. There were K...

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
