We arrived Sunday evening to celebrate my wife's Birthday. We slept in on Monday and then took a walk on the beach. Came back had a cup of coffee and read. Then decided to get a shower and start our day. Only to find we had no water. Couldn't take a shower, flush a toilet or even brush our teeth.... More

This was our second time staying here and each time out expectations are blown away. This is a simple motel with basic rooms and a fantastic view. The motel is 30 feet from the ocean sand and while we don't have a dog for only an extra $10 a day our friends who do have dogs can bring them. We... More

Pros: Ocean front....very easy to the beach. Price is right. Nice staff Clean rooms Comfortable bed Did I mention the ocean front? Cons: It's old...and needs a lot of work. No fireplace fan, but the open switch box with visible wires probably proved there was one at some time in the past. The window didn't close very well without some... More

First let me say we are dog owners and are limited to Pet Friendly rooms. That said, I don't get the rave reviews of this property? It is an old property and our end room was crooked and the bathroom stinky. Mildew or something. The room smelled like dog.(I know a dog room...) There are no amenities here either. No... More

Nice place with newly remodeled rooms and a friendly staff! Can't beat the price, and the view is awesome! Location location location! Make sure you try a crab sandwich and a bowl of clam chowder just down the road.

We found this great motel by accident when we searched for affordable motels in Lincoln City, OR. This was in Sept. on a Monday and our room was on the ground floor with a deck facing the beach for $65. It was a beautiful room (all their rooms face the beach). They are 100% smoke-free; they allow pets but are... More

Great spot to stay at with extremely affordable rates for being oceanfront. Staff was very accommodating and prompt, allowed me to check in early. Sun-thu gets you great week rates, pay a little more to stay on the weekend. I chose 3rd floor for the great views and so I wouldn't have anyone stomping above me. Windows have a child... More
