The motel is on the main road, within easy walking distance of restaurants, stores and other services. Our room was drab, with a purple wall, and the energy saving bulbs did little to improve that. But both the room and bathroom were very clean. As others mentioned, the walls are very thin and we heard the person snoring loudly in... More

Great price, great room, amazing service! The room was clean, smelled nice, and was well stocked with a huge bed (very firm, but I like it that way) and television. My family was just passing through and needed a place to stay the night, we arrived around 9pm, after the office had closed. The owner wasn't there when I arrived... More

Room (25) was lovely, nice decor- made a present change from the budget motel 6 stayed at previously. Room was very clean and spacious. Large Samsung LCD... More

We recently stayed in room #21, based on the favorable reviews. Overall the room was as my title describes. Expectations were for an older-motel experience, but still a clean and well-maintained room. Old and less expensive doesn't always equate with unpleasant and dirty. We definitely got the older motel experience along with the stained and dirty carpet, heater, bathroom and... More

We stay here every time we come to Gold Beach for work. Our whole crew loves it here. We are greeted with Smiles & waves. We love how friendly it is here. They are even pet friendly here. The Motel is right on Hwy 101, and the Ocean can be seen from the Motel. It's AWESOME... Thanks for everything. :... More
