We had reserved a room for a 3-day stay at the beach with a visiting teen-age relative. I remembered Sailor Jack's from my teen years and remembered the beach below the motel as being great. Well, years have passed and have not been kind to Sailor Jack's. They have made improvements to the building, but the mattresses were truly awful.... More

My wife and I stayed at sailor jack about a year ago and had a very good time workers were very friendly and for the price you get a very good room. Now when we were there they were updating the rooms but they were still nice. We paid for a deck did not know that the deck is boxed... More

Imagine a wall of windows looking out right at the ocean and you have a room at Sailor Jack. This hotel is simple, but oceanfront, and that is what we wanted. It is older, built in the 70's, but doesn't seem old, and has everything you need at the beach. The managers are sooooo nice-it was a great way to... More

We stayed one night here in July to celebrate our anniversary. Room was well furnished. We stayed on the first floor and the room had a great view with a deck. Con was room was not cleanest. We found what appeared to be someone's styrofoam ice cream bowl (used) under the futon. Sheets and pillow cases had stains on them... More

My wife and I just stayed at this motel in the last week. We found the staff and owner to be friendly, helpful, and very service oriented. It looked like they are in the long process of spiffing up the place. It was very clean and ideally located for experiencing the beach and accessing local shopping, etc.. We had a... More

I've stayed here 3 times in the last year. Is it the most elegant hotel? No, but their rooms are clean and somewhat updated. The only complaint is the mattress could be replaced but to be fair the other beds were perfectly fine. What keeps me coming back (besides location) is the female manager at the front desk. She is...

We stayed for one night in a third floor room. We had a great view directly over the ocean. The walls are a bit thin as I could the TV next door. The only way I could get the Wi-Fi to work was to sit near the entry door. It did not work in bed or on the desk. The... More

Easy to find, wonderful view and GREAT for our dog. We reserved late and had the third floor room with a kitchen and bedroom. Would love to see an elevator for this old lady with a really bad back, but ultimately the stairs are good for me; even the ones to the beach. The staff was very helpful and friendly.... More

located a few short blocks away from hwy 101 so you only hear the ocean sounds is this oceanfront property Check in was cold and impersonal. The list of donts and the charges incurred, which ranged from feeding the birds, unchecked dogs and dishes left unwashed were a few of the no-no's we were admonished about. It was pretty much...
