This is a perfect little tucked away place if you are looking for someplace quiet and right on the beach. Room and bath were very clean, pillows plump and towels soft and big. Staff very friendly and helpful. Price was comparable to others in the area and loved the shuttle to the casino. Will certainly be staying again!

My husband, son and I just checked out after a two day stay at Sailor Jack's. We have visited Lincoln City a number of times, but this was our first stay at S.J's. I was pleased with the cleanliness of the room and the beds were extremely comfortable. Beach access is available directly behind the motel, but be warned it... More

The room was an average room. It was nice being on the beach. Not much of a room but we were out a lot so was basically a place to sleep. Was nice to listen to the ocean. The bathroom was dirty and towels were stained. I thought the bed was hard although my daughter liked a more firm bed.... More

jkmarick, Sorry to hear that your stay with us was unsatisfactory. Our housekeeping and laundry staff do the best they can to ensure only quality linens make it into rooms, but occasionally an undesirable towel or two makes it out of the laundry room. We hope that you will give us a try again in the future when you visit... More

We were able to get a room with a coupon rate because we stopped by mid-morning. We got a queen on the 3rd floor, 207. They showed us the room even though it had not been made up. We had planned to spend the day stopping at various spots along the coast South of Lincoln City and did not need... More

Central location on the beach. Price is good. Cleanliness and maintenance is lacking. If not for the beach location this would be a pass. Stayed in two different rooms and both had leaking toilets and a simple thorough vacuuming would have helped. Upper floor wifi is poor. Paper thin walls have you hearing things most would prefer not to hear.... More

Sailor Jack's is nicely furnished and for the price, very comfortable. One of the positive things about the suite was that it had a table and chairs. The shower was hot, the beach wasn't crowded and it was walking distance to restaurants and a wonderful independent bookstore.

This really isn't a bad place to stay. The rooms are nice, beds okay, and the views are great. The continental breakfast isn't anything to write home about, but they do provide a few basics. The two biggest problems that kind of stood out were, 1) The only public area is a deck on the second floor, and it is... More

This place was surprisingly nice. Clean, classy rooms, all with amazing views of the ocean. The bottom floor rooms all have balconies that you can step out onto and enjoy the view and the breeze.

I proposed to my fiance on the beach just below Sailor Jack's in February of this year. I was looking for a nicer hotel that didn't carry the hefty price tag like most do on the coast and we were pleasantly surprised. The staff was great, the room was very nice for the price and the view was amazing. We... More
