This place has a beautiful view and has such great potential, but that is all i can say positive. Dirty and dingy room, mass amount of bird poo all over walkways, algae and moss growing and hanging from roof, stains on furniture, curtains filthy and did not work properly, screen door had no handle and would not stay on tracks....

Rented house #260 for three nights. Had a great view of the Smith River and ocean. Would recommend bringing a pair of binoculars to view all the wildlife. Lots of seals, pelicans, eagles, and numerous ducks to view laying along the shore of the river. The house was clean and roomy, with comfortable beds. The price in the off season... More

Decided to give the hotel a try. At first it appeared to be a clean room until we inspected the mattress the next morning and found runny brown poop stains on it. Mattress should be thrown out. Bed was very uncomfortable, rooms need serious updating. This place needs Serious WORK

Situated on the famous Smith river mouth and the Pacific ocean, the views are uncanny, teeming with all sorts of birds and wildlife, the motel is dated but very clean and priced right. Newer units are available for a few bucks more, ASK!!! Restaurant is only open for dinner, motel serves light breakfast spread.

We were driving down the coast and were ready to pull in for the night and came across the Ship Ashore. We were pleased at the prices and even more pleased with the room. Clean, comfortable and a great view from the balcony which we got our money's worth. There was a very good restaurant across the parking lot where... More

The scenery and wildlife are beyond compare here. Get an upper floor and enjoy the wildlife on the river/bay and the crashing waves just beyond. We saw seals, otters, blue herons, egrets, grebes, and pelicans. This time of year when the fishermen and tourists aren't around was quiet as can be, except for the crashing waves. The rooms are fine,... More

We have stayed at the Ship Ashore many times. The place is quite run down and requires much upgrading to make it a 5-Star location. But, for a 2 star place, it's great! The rooms have always been clean. We usually get a kitchen unit which is bigger and provides a stove and fridge to cook on. The reason we... More

My wife and I were passing through the area and wanted to spend one night to utilize the local casino. We were traveling with two small dogs and the nicest place in town, which I think is the Lucky 7 Casino/Resort does not take dogs. We get this a lot so we look further and found the Ship Ashore Resort.... More
