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

It is the best place for the money, if you are on a budget. The owner keeps the place secure, and doesn't tolerate any b/s ,... More
