If your looking for something near the charter that is reasonably priced and clean this will do nicely. We stayed in an upper room and ours looked like it had been resonantly painted and remolded. The bed was very comfortable. There is a definite mold smell when you enter the lobby but the room we stayed in did not have... More

I considered this Motel a 2 - but that is because I have extremely sensitive skin and am sensitive to mold. There is a very strong mold smell when you enter the room, and an even stronger mold smell in the lobby. However, you become accustomed to the smell within an hour. The rooms' decorations were interesting: a bright blue... More

I chose this hotel because it is just a short drive to Shore Acers State Park and I don't like driving at night. Staff was friendly. Hotel itself was in need of updating but it served my purpose, Which was a place to sleep before driving home. The bed was comfortable. Towel bar was broke off the bathroom wall and... More

Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. A little off the beaten path, lovely setting. Walls are a little thin. We could hear our neighbors talking, but once they went to bed the place was very quiet. Restaurants within walking distance, free wifi, would stay again.

Over the last 20 years, my wife and I stayed many times at Captain Johns. We seen several managers/owners come and go along with a gradual decline of the quality of the rooms. Our last visit has cured us of ever staying at Captain Johns again. The room was filthy. Easy to date the last time the room was cleaned... More

My father came to visit us while we were staying there. He was told he could not bring his dog into our room. He complied and left the dog in his vehicle but awhile later my husband caught the owner or manager trying to take pictures through our window. When he caught her, she said she heard the dog and...

We went to go charter fishing in Charleston and was going to stay at the Mill Casino(full).We then went to Captain John's Motel. Bed was comfortable, people were nice. Clean room. Close to the Betty Kay Charters. Booked another room for another day. Will now go to Captain John's whenever we are close to Coos Bay and North Bend.

We stopped stayed overnight a Captain John's for an early fishing trip the next morning. Overall I would say it was a positive experience. The beds were fine, the water was hot, and there is a handy area to clean and cook your fish or crab from the day. I probably would not stay here alone, but the staff was... More

Ok so not too bad and not great. It's the place to stay when you coming to charter fish. Mattresses were old, room smelled old but everything worked so hey no problem. Oh except no breakfast. But that's another review.

First time we stayed at this Motel 8 years ago, our room door was kicked in while we where gone and the room was ransacked and while the criminals sat around and at our food. 8 years later same weekend (July 4th), we decided to give the place the benefit, and try it one more time. The second night we... More
