The room smell so bad and no A/C, I could not breath.Don't stay here if you are sensitive. No wonder I have seen a few travelers stay outside their rooms to get the fresh air. My friend regretted to make our reservation to us all 12.@@@@@@@@@@@@@

This motel is family owned and operated. Great rates, right next to the docks, great place to eat dinner right next door. Bathroom had some black mold in the upper part of shower, other than that clean room. Micro and mini fridge in room as well. Quiet area.

We picked this place based on recommendation by our waiter in the area we were in. I read some reviews and some were correct about the smell. We walked in and right away the moldy smell blew me away however, judging by where we were I can understand that, however upon entering our room the smell was there too(2nd floor)... More

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

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.
