I can't say enough about this hotel!! Very Friendly- Very Clean- Very Confortable!! Convenient location in downtown Gold Beach. The rooms are a very nice size and this motel offers free wi-fi, refrigerator, microwave and a nice flat screen tv and all for a great price!! Nice little Retro Motel that I would definitely stay in again!!

We booked a king bed room here at the very last minute, and because it was November, the rate was very reasonable. We arrived very late, but the manager woke up to check us in. The room was very clean and unexpectedly spacious. The bedspread, pillows, and towels were a little worn, but overall a comfortable stay. The shower had... More

Our room had wood floors that were clean. The spreads were a bit worn. New pillows needed. Great location on 101. Coffee only was available...NO breakfast as tripadvisor notes. All rooms have exterior doors directly to parking lot. Park at your room door.

Clean and hospitable. 4th of July 2014. Watched fireworks from parking area. Manager was easy to find when needed. Good places to eat nearby recommended by manager. I would recommend it for groups of friends traveling together.

The rooms are clean and pretty quiet and the management friendly. The price is about the same (with pets) but might be a better option than motel 6 since it's a single story and possibly a bit quieter plus it's walking distance to downtown stores whereas motel 6 is further away.

Directly across the street from the beach, easy walking beach access. Extremely clean and well maintained room. Mr. Paten, ( behind the front desk), was very cheerful, pleasant and had a fun laughable personality. He didn't even get mad at us when our gear in the truck struck his 7 foot breezeway. He said it happens all the time. We... More

Stayed in August with family of four. I'm naturally thrifty but don't usually stay in cheaper lodging because I'm nervous about other guests being sketchy. Not at. Motel 101, just other thrifty people like myself. Would stay here again, room was clean and had a fridge and microwave and cable tv. Furnishings were up to date, bathroom was straight up... More

The new face of the old Western Village Motel of the 1960's. It is certainly not the Ritz but a good hotel if your not expecting the little extras. The rooms are clean, the furnishings are a bit dated and the walls are a bit thin but I like this motel. A good budget motel without the frills.
