This is it, this is THE place, look no further. Full Stop! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ My wife and I were looking for someplace to just "get away" for a week from the SF bay area, no hassles, no airports, just us and some hiking, scenery and comfort. We found a few places in the Brookings area and settled... More

These are park model manufactured homes that have been expanded and placed permanently on a very steep hillside. We stayed in OV10 and had a decent view, although some simple pruning would have helped a great deal. Hot tub and grill on the large deck. Five miles to town, but a very pleasant drive. Spacious and everything we needed with... More

To start, the lady at the front desk was not very welcoming. A "no non-sense" approach and very orderly. A little intimidating, and thought to myself, why are we staying here? Then came the 1 bdr, 1 bath, single wide mobile home. The view was fogged in, the inside was outdated, and was poorly laid-out. The queen size bed "barely"... More

My husband and I went here for breakfast and the view. Great atmosphere, the service was friendly and attentive. My bacon and eggs were very good. However, my husband's biscuits in" biscuits and gravy" we're hard and old, this seems like an easy fix. Make fresh biscuits. Details are very important in earning good reviews.

We were told about this place by a friend who is moving to Brookings. She was spot on. It is actually an rv resort that has park model rv's for rent. Each one is owned separately and the Resort just manages them. We rented I-9. It was only ok, but the view of the ocean was amazing. The one we... More

My husband and I have wanted to stay at Whaleshead for years and this year, we finally did it. Cabin T10 was pristine clean, comfortable, had a nice covered deck with a good view of Whaleshead Beach. The hot tub was hot and delightful after hiking and beach-combing all day. Everything worked. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, coffeemaker,... More

We stayed one night here. We had made Reservations from what was left (we had booked only a week in advance) and just looked at the choices available from the website. The place we booked was HORRIBLE. The carpets were in dire need of cleaning, the bed coverings had a "unclean" feel to them, and the furnace sounded like a... More

We have stayed here over fifty times as it is very close to our daughters house. Each cabin is different and creates a unique experience. They are decorated with lots of brachytherapy decorations and mostly fake plants. Many have lovely ocean views and hot tubs. This is not a true hotel experience with a high service level. They are more... More

We stayed in S2 at the top of the resort. The view was amazing and it felt very private. The cabin was clean but we had small children who climb behind things and throw toys under things so we noticed some hard to see areas that had been neglected from cleaning. The sheets and towels were fresh. Anytime we had... More
