Pleasant clean room - only stayed 1 night on our way south, but would happily do so again. Staff were friendly and helpful. Great view of the ocean, didn't have any noise issues. We prefer out of town locations and this one worked well.

This was a good, quite place to stay. People were friendly, room was spacious and clean. The reason I'm giving it a 4, is because we checked in when it was almost dark. We were put in a room with a very dark, outside hallway. Our room was at the end of the hallway. It was very dark, and the...

We liked the good service and clean rooms. We liked the price of the room and the nearness to everything.

We stayed in room 1 and the room next to us was VERY noisy. We had two people stay next to us and we could hear every step their children took. I had to buy a fan to drown out the noise. The pictures of the beach were better than what we saw when we stayed.

Thank you for the review. A score of one does seem a bit harsh, but to each their own. I am sorry that you found us so sub-standard. Unfortunately, we do not handpick who gets which room and people with children are just as welcome here at Crescent Beach Motel as those without. We were essentially full to capacity during...

Stayed here a couple of months ago and it was great tried it again and it was just as good. Made my reservation for next month and I know 30 days is too long to wait! Staff was friendly and the room was neat and clean.

If you are looking for a five star hotel with all the bells & whistles, then this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a reasonable priced ocean front room then, this is the best place for you! You are literally steps from the beach. When you open the window and/or sliding glass door all you hear...

My wife and I stayed at this small motel for 3 nights. The location is ideal, located on the beach and less than 100 yards from the sea. The rooms are small, but clean, with a sliding glass door, deck and deck chairs. Parking is at your door and it is very quiet. Your location is ideally suited to explore...

We got in after dark, but as soon as we checked onto our room, we opened the sliding glass door and it was like the ocean ws right there! The seagulls know the guests give them handouts, and there were 3 or 4 waiting on the deck. It was really funny! Comfortable, clean, and basic room, with a million dollar...

This is not a modern hotel but it is very nice, the staff is friendly and the view of the Pacific Ocean is amazing!! Our room was very spacious and had a large window to view the ocean. The window opened so we could hear the waves crashing all night. We sat out on the deck to watch the sun...

This motel is in a great spot. Right on the beach. We were really excited to stay here. That ended ended when we put the key in the door for room three. Did not open.

Thanks for the review! I'm very sorry to hear that you had such issues with the door. While it is somewhat common for the doors in the back to be a bit difficult (they get sand in them off the beach), it is very rare for rooms 1-19 to have any issues at all. While I was not working on...

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
