As I drove by I wasn't sure about staying here since it was so close to the road and I couldn't tell what the rooms were like. I stopped and asked to see a room. The very friendly desk clerk gave me three keys and let me look at three room options he had that night. Some of the rooms... More

We called to make reservations for 2 rooms for that night. They only had one room left, a 2 bedroom (queen in main room, double in small room ). We decided to take it, since it was only for one night. The room was very clean and comfortable. Beds very comfortable! Very small with the 2 rooms, but adequate. They... More

We were on a trip up and down the Oregon Coast and had booked a room at this motel....based on tripadvisor ratings. The motel has a 24 hour cancellation policy. Several days (4 or 5) before our scheduled stay we were forced to return home due to a family emergency. My wife canceled the booking by phone and was told... More

For the life of me, I can't figure out why this hotel has such high ratings. It's an old motel that's gotten new carpeting and flooring in the bathroom, but our room reeked of cigarette smoke. The room was tiny, there was one luggage rack, but no dresser - just a round table and chairs by the window. We had... More

In Brookings on a combination business research and personal (mini family reunion and memorial service) trip, we choose this motel based on Trip Advisor reviews. It is clean and well appointed, centrally located and near a great Sushi Experience (at Kitanishi on Hemlock) and our room (117) even had a peek a boo view to the ocean. All for $69... More

On the night of May 16, 2011 my husband, Phil Pohl, and I stayed in Unit 122 of the Wild Rivers Motor Lodge, 437 Chetco Ave, Brookings OR. Phil always takes off his gold wedding band before he showers & the morning of 5/17 was no exception. He carefully placed it on a night stand by the bed but forgot... More

You take your chances sometimes with "motorlodge" in the name. But the Wild Rivers is like walking back to a time when they ate shiny and new. The staff was lovely, the rooms Neat clean, and the value is out of this world.

I'm normally a Marriott customer (40-50 nights a year) - this motel is every bit as clean and comfortable as any chain facility. Rooms are large and comfortable, mattress was perfect, and the owner/operators were extremely friendly and helpful. This facility might be the best bargain on the West Coast - I would highly recommend it to anyone.
