Absolutely loved this motel!! Wonderful cozy, clean rooms, more like small apartments than a motel.Terrific views of a drop dead gorgeous coastline.

What a great place to stay while playing at the beach. Our cottage was just the right mix of vintage and 'modern'. The full kitchen was well equipped if one is inclined to cook. Coffee, paper towels, ice in the freezer and mini-moos creamer was a pleasant surprise. Our bed was comfortable and the room clean and tidy. The motel... More

We were traveling down the Pacific Coast and needed a place to stay in Newport. We lucked out and found this place. The rooms are nice little cottages, and they all have a porch with an amazing view. We were only planning on staying the night, but ended up there for three. The staff was amazing too.

Okay, we're the friends of the "coppertessie" and agree with that review wholeheartedly. Would only add that the kitchen seemed well-equipped, though we didn't really cook there. For people who want to avoid chains and want some character and don't need a high-caloric free continental breakfast, this place is a gem. The owner obviously loves wood and there are lots... More

Built in the 1940s and rehabbed, this place has character and is comfortable. For my birding friends and me, it was the perfect location for getting to Yaquina Head. We had a two-bedroom/two-bath unit with living room. The smaller bedroom would be tight for more than one person and the bathroom is tiny but it suited me. It even had... More

My husband & I were just planning to spend one night on our trip along the coast, but we fell in love with this place and stayed all 3 nights of our vacation!

We rented two units, one two bedroom and a one bedroom and had our daughter's family including young children with us. Both units had kitchenettes, nice tile showers and comfortable beds. Quilts on the beds, an electric fireplace in the one bedroom unit, flat screen TVs, a small deck with Adirondack chairs and a million dollar view made this a... More

Our first time here, and it was amazing! The place was clean and inviting. You could tell that they spent a lot of time, money and effort rehabbing this vintage Motel. The views were breath taking!
