Would not be my choice next time. Sign on motel reader board says beds are new. No way either of the beds in the room I was in were new. I asked when I checked in if all rooms has new beds and was told yes. Found stains on sides of both box springs and they looked very old to... More

The Ship-A-Shore is in bad need of repair and the restaurant is closed. Bummer! And, the Best Western was full. Lucky for us. This motel is easy to get to. It is very clean and comfortable, and the prices are way better than BW. Also, it is closer to the better restaurants and shopping (should you like that sort of... More

Clean and convenient with a very friendly staff. Ken is a hands on owner and manager. He was there to check us in and we saw him working alongside the housekeepers the next morning. The location is close to everything and they even have rooms where pets are welcome. The cancellation policy is very lenient; Internet is free and the... More

We got in late so we ignored the off smell til the morning. However the road noise from 101 was so loud that none of us slept except fitfully between 18 wheelers and loud motorcycles flying by. It seriously sounded like we were trying to sleep in the median of the hwy. while discussing what to do since we were... More

Previously, I have always stayed at "vacation rentals" near Brookings, after this I will stay here. Ken's experience in hospitality is evident, he runs a great motel, it was clean and had a comfort level that went beyond the clean rooms and area. I will definitely stay here again.

The hotel is right on the 101. So, there is some road noise. The staff are very friendly and a good resource. Ken, the owner/manager, gave some great insight on local tidepools and parks. The hotel is showing its age, but they keep it very clean.

Stayed for two nights. Owner/staff at reception was most unpleasant. . Had a very negative attitude towards us. Was not helpful. We felt like we were intruding rather than paying to stay there.
