This place has great location -- right on a nice beach -- and is NOT cheap. So imagine our surprise at finding the THINNESS walls on the planet. We could hear every word BOTH neighbors said, just talking in regular voices. If they were partiers or having sex it would have definately impacted our trip, our sleep, and my 7 year old daughter!

They should have just hung Indian tapestries to separate the rooms. It would have been JUST as effective and a bit more colorful!! And -- be careful! -- the shower goes from boiling HOT to instantly cold with no warning. No wonder the shower nozzle was pointed toward the wall...

For the price this place is just a rip... and the "continental breakfast" is a bowl of apples and oranges and some instant oatmeal.

Just don't do it. You can find a better place!

The Crescent Beach Motel is really just a typical one story 1950s motel. The rooms were fine & clean. However the best part of staying here is the fact that the rooms open onto a shared deck where you can step out onto the sand and walk to the beach. We would absolutely stay at this motel again.

The location is perfect (right on the beach.) The beds were rock hard, though, so our sleep suffered.

This motel is literally on the beach. You open your back door and the water is 50 feet away. The motel is older but it's clean and comfortable. The walls are a little thin, but overall this was a great place to stay. We knew ahead of time that there was not a typical continental breakfast, but they do serve oatmeal, fruit, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate and that worked out great for us. This was a great place to stay.

Had a great visit to the Crescent Beach Motel. I read the reviews and knew about the thin walls, and the "kids running down the deck outside" but these were trivial things to me and didnt experience a problem with either. I guess if you had people having a party next door it could be a problem, but had 2 quiet nights. Its right on the beach, and the outside deck makes this place. Nothing like sitting out there with the sun beating down listening to the ocean.

The room was clean, the beds were fine as was the bathroom. This is an older motel so dont expect new amenities, just plain and simple.

Its very convienent stop off point to go to the Redwoods, especially Stout Grove. I reccomend it. Also you have to go to Crescent beach overlook for a fantastic view. The Good Harvest cafe has great food just a bit expensive, get a meal to go and enjoy it on the deck.
