I used to come to Sailor Jacks every year. Last year, 2013, I got a 2nd degree burn on my arm from the tub/Jacuzzi faucet. When I checked out the next day I alerted them to the concern that they need to have signs that say "hot" water, like some places do. I showed them my arm and they just... More

I stayed at Sailor Jack’s for 5 days. I wish I could give a 5 star review. It is a nice location, right on the beach. There are some rooms with fireplaces and Jacuzzi’s. I had one of those rooms. I, unfortunately, have to report that I called 4 times before my visit to get a room with the deck... More

SailorJack O, Manager at Sailor Jack Ocean Front Motel, responded to this review

Hello, I'm sorry to hear that your stay with us was not satisfactory. Our housekeeping staff always do their best to ensure that our rooms are clean and pest-free. The customer called us at midnight and wanted to check out because of cockroaches. We do not have any cockroach problems. When guests open the sliding doors, the coast wind sometimes... More

I booked one of their most expensive rooms to stay only one night. Things seemed nice, nice jacuzzi, uncomfortable bed. But before I was going to sleep a cockroach crawled up the side of the wall next to my bed. I no longer felt comfortable staying there and drove home at 12:30 at night. Cockroaches get in your clothes and... More

We go to the Oregon Coast every chance we get. Sailor Jack in Lincoln City is a place we've returned to many times. Be sure to check for manager's specials on their web site. On our last visit, which was spur of the moment, we were able to get a king jacuzzi room for a great price on a manager... More

This is not a fancy place. But the people are super nice. The rates cant be beat. Dog friendly. The only complaint I have is there was an envelope in the room that said we should leave a tip for the housekeeper if we were happy. I didnt leave a tip. The room smelled clean and the bedding looked clean,... More

Nothing fancy with the room. At first glance, room looks clean...in need of new carpet, rather dingy/dirty. Our room 113 had a big tear in it, tripping hazard. Closer look, everywhere needed to be dusted (details). And the minute maid lid and straw under the table from previous renter...probably should have been picked up! Rather large gaps in the door...

This was a true find. We arrived in Lincoln City with no plans and ended after some searching at Sailor Jack's. It is an amazing place just across the road from the beach. Do not waste your time searching. The rooms are bright and clean. The coffee shops and eateries are close by. This is *not* a hotel but it... More

This place was really clean, affordable and friendly. We loved the view and the staff was very very nice. On a great dead end road not the main strip which is always nice. Right on the beach made it a great find for the price. We will absolutely stay here again next time!!!
