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! The weather was perfect, plus we had the place to ourselves, which made it even better. The ten units here feel more like cozy cottages than a... More

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

Agate Beach Motel is now our family favorite place to stay! Beautiful ocean view, easy beach access and perfect accommodations! We'll be back. We enjoyed the beach, surfing, campfire, dinner out as well most of our dinners in, dog friendly, movies - everything that makes a get-away perfect!

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! Such a cozy nest managed by wonderful people. Our dog was welcome and also felt right at home. We really cannot say enough great... More

This is our one and only place we come to when visiting the Oregon Coast. Dogs are welcome - they even provide towels and furniture covers, and the cabins are cozy and clean and easy to be in. We spend half our time exploring the beaches north and south of here, and the other half sitting back watching the waves... More

Mom and I came down for our second trip to celebrate her 71st Birthday. Per the usual we were greeted by our wonderful host Maggie. We also had the pleasure of meeting her daughter Sarah who fixed the TV after I pushed the wrong button. Housekeeping was there if we needed anything. I cannot say enough about this wonderful piece... More

Incredible place to stay right on the coast line! Amazing view from your personal deck—get in the sunsets and sunrises if you can. The room was super spacious and had everything you needed in a kitchen.

This was my first trip to the Oregon coast and honestly, I had to be pulled away! This motel is just perfect, clean and comfy, with all the amenities you would need.
