We planned a couple day trip down the Oregon Coast, and booked a room here based on the Tripadvisor reviews as the end-point of our tour. Being on a budget, we selected an Economy room in the "motel" section of the Resort, and it served us well as a place to catch a night's sleep. But it wasn't without some... More

We got to econo room that was about 116.00 with taxes. I couldn't wait to leave. DIRTY!! Do nasty, I could see if it was 39.00 per night but come on. Super loud too. People were nice but they need to spend a few bucks and get a new cleaning staff.

We rented an "Ocean front room" for 4 nights, but left ;after the 3rd. The photo shows a nice leather lounge chair that wasn't there. Only 2 straight-backed kitchen chairs-not made for watching TV. The rooms comes with a channel guide of over 40 channels-nice? Right! But the channels are out of date and none of them match up. In... More

Looks like a motel, but really it is a gem! We were 3 weeks on the road between San Francisco and Seattle, and the "Pacific Reef" was definitly the best motel on our trip. The room was great with two queen beds. Everything was clean and beautiful configurated. Fridge, microwave, a small coffee machine, Plasma with HBO...Everything very modern and... More

We booked a room by phone and were given an excellent rate and the staff were very friendly. The room we were given was in the motel portion of this resort and was quite old and could use some renovating. It had two separate sleeping rooms although only one had a television and it was a rather small one. Nice... More

We've stayed here a few times over the last couple of years. The staff has always been friendly. The rooms are really clean and nicely decorated. They have real photos on the walls instead of really bad hotel pictures. The beds are really comfortable. My only gripe is that they close the spa at 9pm and only open at 10am.... More

We made our reservations over the telephone. Upon our arrival we were cordially greeted and the process of registration went smoothly with one error that was corrected by the next morning. While sitting on the bed, it felt like lumps/rocks had been placed in it. The bed was not the best but when lying in it, became reasonably comfortable for... More

This was our third try staying on the Gold Beach "strip" and definitely our best experience. We took the upstairs loft "suite" for the three of us, and it's a huge, comfy space for the ridiculously low price of $90+tax. One king bed in the main room, two queens in the bedroom, microwave/fridge in the kitchenette, huge and lovely bathroom,... More

The room was cozy and clean, the staff was friendly, And the chowder house was delicious! It was quiet at night. There's a wonderful hot tub (and it's in a private housing, Great for the Oregon coast, since it's usually raining) I will definitely be staying here again.
