Once in a while you find a motel or hotel that is an attraction in itself- this is definitely the case with the Agate Beach Motel. I stayed here in August 2015 while on a motorcycle tour down the Oregon Coast. The view is breathtaking- the property is on top of a steep hill/ cliff overlooking the beach itself and... More

I don't know what we loved the most. The view, the people that work there, the room, or the location. OMG it was amazing. They loved our dog almost as much as we do! We won't stay anywhere else as long as it is even close to our destination. I left my phone in the room when we checked out,... More

This hotel upgraded us to beach view which was fantastic. The beds were too soft for me but the room was clean. They don't offer a free breakfast but the service was fine. The biggest negative is that the fitness room was being remodeled which they did not post on their web site. I expected to use the fitness room... More

Everything you need with thoughtful personal touches. The hosts are charming and generous, allowing you to enjoy your privacy but helpful if you have questions about the area. Enjoy the ocean view from your own porch or beautiful deck with stairs that lead down to the beach. Having never stayed with our dog in a pet-friendly place, I was unsure... More

We found this lovely spot through tripadvisor reviews, & we agree with the previous positive comments: Very comfortable, squeaky clean, lovely view. Nice kitchen.Note: The 1 unit called a "double queen" provides 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms, which was perfect for our group of 1 couple & 1 single adult. Very sturdy steps down to the beach. This was our... More

Our family stayed her for several days in August & loved it's updated 1940s charm and great location. The rooms were spotless & comfortable and the kitchenettes helped us keep the kids from getting hangry during the day.

Very fun place to stay. Stunning views of the ocean with gorgeous sunsets! They MORE than accommodated our group! We love the location, the beach and access to it, and the quaintness of the place. The lotions and shampoos in the shower were yummy smelling, and the beds are super comfortable.
