“Perfect spot to relax”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

This was our second visit to the Crescent Beach Motel and this time was just as great as the first. This isn't the Hilton, but its very clean, quiet and right on the beach. The management is wonderful, responding quickly to a small problem we had with our sliding glass door. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the deck meeting and talking with other guests and enjoying the beautiful views. We highly recommend this motel to anyone wanting a comfortable place to stay with terrific views.

Location on the beach was perfect, room was nice, bed comfortable, staff friendly, even the other residents were almost too personable. The only detractor was a horn that blew out on the water all night every 10 seconds. We tried closing the sliding door to the back deck, but there was no A/C, and it was too toasty in the room to leave it closed. Price wasn't outrageous either.

Room Tip: The Ocean views are priceless

Hi Elbojbb!

We are happy that you enjoyed your experience even with the fog horn noise from the harbor (a mile away). My guess is that if you expect the sound to go away after each sound off, you could be kept awake for a long time. If you know that it will continue through a foggy night, then it will actually lull you to sleep. I think this is a great post for people to read that are thinking about staying here. Thank you for posting! We enjoyed having you as a guest and hope that you can return again.

If you want a beach vacation this is your place. Yes, the rooms are tiny but the location is totally worth it. Staff were all very nice and room was clean with all the necessities. Worth every penny! The proximity to the Redwoods also makes this a great location. Definitely would return.

Thin walls. And I mean THIN WALLS. So depending on what your neighbors are "doing" it could making sleeping difficult. Besides for that, great amenities. Very clean, really great view, friendly staff...it just depends on how much you'll need to be sleeping. But it didn't ruin our experience because the rest of the hotel was really great and had everything we expected. Fast, easy check-out, nice breakfast amenities.

Hi Carlen!
We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience at Crescent Beach Motel. We are paying attention to reviews and corrections will be made accordingly. The room you stayed in will be going through some remodeling in November. Those walls will be much quieter when we finish. We hope that you return to enjoy the new rooms in that section.

We found this motel on Trip Advisor, and booked it after talking with the very friendly hotel clerk. We went to Crescent City for a base from which to see the Redwoods, and stayed here because it is the only motel/inn on the water. It's an older place, but the minute you open your door you have an unobstructed view of the grasses and ocean outside the sliding glass doors. It's the kind of place that draws travellers and explorers who are looking for something other than the usual predictable name brand hotel. We'd like an excuse to return to this spot and recommend it highly. Was one of the highlights of our 2 weeks on the coast.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room with a view if that matters to you. There are several rooms that do not ha...

I didn't stay here because there wasn't a vacancy but after a less than satisfactory experience at a motel down the street I would highly recommend this place. I stopped the next day on my way out of town to get some info so that I could call ahead for a reservation the next time I came through town and the woman at the desk was very friendly and helpful. She gave me a number of recommendations on what sights I should see while traveling down the California coast and went out of her way to give me maps and brochures despite the fact that she was busy with phone calls.
This is the only place in town that is right on the beach, and I will definitely call ahead for a reservation and stay here next time I am in town.

Traveled with a toddler and an infant. No problems other than the alternating temperature of the showers. This is an older motel that shows a bit of aging, The service was adequate, couldn't say anything negative about that. Crescent City is a fairly small town and you are quite near anything Crescent City has to offer.
The biggest advantage of this motel is the fact that it is right on the beach, the view from the sliding glass doors on the back side of the room are great. Another asset is that you are a short walk along the beach from probably the best seafood restaurant in town (Chart Rom).
You will enjoy this motel as long as you don't expect too much from actual room itself.
If I found myself traveling through Crescent City again, I would have no problem staying at the Crescent Beach Motel.
