We rented the river house and man o man never again felt like I needed a tetanus shot just to walk in the door. Poor maintenance and dirty shower curtain. Ants in the kitchen and coffee still in the coffee pot.

We stayed here on our way up the coast to the West Coast Game Park. Ship Ashore is a basic motel. It was pretty cheap with a nice view. In fact, it’s probably the cheapest ocean-view room I’ve ever had. The bathroom had a funky layout, but it was perfectly functional. The TV was unusually small. Everything was old, but... More

Has a web special that included a prime rib dinner for two. I keep going back.This place is at the mouth of the Smith River. Wildlife abound. The otters play... More

The area is quite rural, but the Ship Ashore is decent and facility was clean. It does need a lot of updating, but it is located in a rustic area so not unexpected. I missed dinner by a few minutes but the hotel owners advised going up the road to the casino, which worked out just fine. The night was... More

Me and my husband have stayed here several times and really like the rooms. They are a older hotel but very nice. Right on the ocean, clean rooms, big bath tub for soaking. And the food in the bar is great, alway cooked just right and large portions.

The hotel is older, built in the 60's, but the setting can't be beat. Quiet, peaceful, and a view of the Smith River out the sliding door made it feel more like a cruise ship. Don't misunderstand, the hotel is older and first impressions were a bit negative. But the place is unique. We took advantage of a two night... More

The Ship Ashore suffers from neglect and the overall feeling we got was that the owner doesn't care to spend the time, effort or money to do basic improvements or even the maintenance needed to keep ahead of deterioration. The balcony is a prime example. The wood is weathered and the balcony is in disrepair to the point of being... More

This place is a diamond in the rough...it is dated but the interior is sparkling, the towels are large and fluffy, the views are priceless of the Smith River and slightly further west, the Pacific Ocean. Very quiet and restaurant is fantastic. Forgo Best Western and stay here!!!!

The sad part of this review is how dilapidated everything has been allowed to become. This spot has tremendous wildlife views, the restaurant has some of the best food in the area and is such a hidden treasure. After staying in one of the houses that is decidedly run down (sadly I will add since it was so comfortable) we... More
