Great place on the beach
We have been staying at the Crescent Beach motel for 28 years. When our children were at home they came to from the time they were babies. We love this place. Rooms are very clean and being right on the beach is wonderful. Staff has been very good to us, always polite while we are there and when we phone ahead. Great place to stay.
All of the above are correct...
I have read all of the reviews here and they are all correct. The owners do not like children, they are constantly nosing around and checking on you, they are snooty and a general pain in the you know what, the walls are thin, there are very few amenities, and the ability to walk right to the beach is awesome.
If you generally keep to yourself - they will not hassle you too much. If you try and back into your parking space they will tell you to move your car around immediately.
Overall, the ability to walk directly on to the beach is worth the hassle. However, if we boycott the place they will go out of business and have to sell the location to someone who will truly maximize its potential - so don't go! Now that the new Hampton Inn is up and running it will steal some business.
Black mark on this beautiful city
In all my travels I have never met a more miserable group of people as the ones who run this hotel. We were there for our annual vaction on the 4th. While checking in the manager screamed at my son for touching a small U.S. flag, 1 of about 20 in the lobby for decoration. My wife comes out of the lobby with my 5 year old in tears. I walked in to ask why she made my son cry. She and her husband freaked out as soon as I walked in the door. Telling me to get out. That my reservatons were cancelled. Well that didnt sit to well with me so I let them have a piece of my mind. They called the cops who mediated the situation. The cops were very freindly and while my wife and an officer were in getting our refund takin care of, another officer proceded to jokingly tell me that they get about 1-2 calls a week to come and smooth out some situation with the owners and more unhappy travellers. Beware of this Hotel!!!
Great Place to Stay & Friendly Staff!
We recently took a business/pleasure trip to Crescent City and stayed at the Crescent Beach Motel. I was surprised by some of the previous reviews for this motel because we found the staff to be VERY friendly and accommodating. We had some special scheduling needs and the management had no problem in helping us out.
The rooms were extraordinarily clean. There are no phones in the room, but there is an indoor payphone available next to the office. The Beachcomber restaurant next door is a nice family run place with great food and service. Of course the best part was that all of our rooms opened out to a boardwalk just feet from the beach!
I definitely recommend the Crescent Beach Motel to anyone for business or a family trip!
Best Ocean View in Town
We have enjoyed many wonderful nights at the Crescent Beach Motel. The motel is right on the beach with fabulous ocean views. Just open your door and take a walk down one of the most beautiful beaches in California. No, it doesn't have phones, blow dyers or coffee makers in the room but for the money it is an incredible deal. There is complimentary coffee available all day next to the lobby. Management is friendly and accomodating. The Beachcomber restaurant next door has great food, good prices, exceptionally friendly service and a great ocean view.
Rudist little man in Crescent City
Traveler beware ! Don't stay at the Crescent Beach Motel. The management think they own the entire beach. we -18 motel guests- were enjoying a beach bon fire and he called the fire marshall to have us put it out.the marshall thought we were o.k. so he called the police! No tickets were issued, nor any warning of wrong doing . This place is small all the way down to the in room soap ,about the size of a quater. Take some good advice enjoy your stay in crescent city by staying some place else!
Nice Location Rude Owners
Nice View, Nice Beach for walking.My Wife and I was looking forward to a nice quiet stay.The owners were very snooty and rude and dislike children. the room was very small and overpriced with no phone, coffee, service etc. the room was not ready at check in.we can here everything in the next room...They need to sell the place to some freindly professional folks that want your business.
No price to give
We were planning a family vacation, trying to reserve rooms in advance.
When calling the hotel we were advised that our 80 year old grandparents could not visit us in our room and that we would not find out the rate of the room until we arrived. When we asked for an estimate, we were told the room would be more than $95.00 a night, but she would not put a cap on how high the price could get. We frequently visit Crescent City and will not be staying at this Motel any longer.
Way too Basic & over priced
My husband and I were looking for a couple of relaxing days on the Northern California coast while touring the Redwoods. We thought we had selected a nice comfortable motel on the coast. Granted the rooms have a very nice view of the ocean with beach access, but other than that for $91.00+ per night, we were extremely disappointed. The room was very tiny, could barely move around in it with the 2 beds. No phone, no coffee, of course no fridge or microwave and not even a box of keenex. The bath left much to be desired. When taking a shower, be aware the water pressure varies greatly and you may be hit with scalding water or cold water at any time as I was. No maid service to speak of. The bed was somewhat made up, with the same sheets, but the bath was not cleaned. We did have fresh towels. I was glad to see there are several other hotels in the area and even a couple of new ones being built. This motel is highly overrated for the price.
No babies allowed
This motel wants you to get 2 rooms if you have 2 children. We have a 2 yr. old and a 4 month old and these peolple were trying to tell us that we couldn't have the 4 of us in 1 room. When we checked in I wrote on the card that there would be 4 of us and there wasn't a problem. After already staying 1 night, this very rude man knocked on our door and told us that we had too many people in the room! What are we supposed to do with our babies? What kind of establishment doesn't allow parents to have their babies with them?! The most aggrevating thing about it was that he was actually standing there arguing with me and threatening to throw us out! Then he even wanted me to pay more for having my children with us!

Troy would love to stay here for a week just to explore all the trails. It truly is awesome. I see a similar trip in our future…no kids, taking our time to enjoy the landscape.
