Yes, we enjoy the glitz of Vegas, the pampering in Key Largo - but once in a while a good raw experience can't be beat when on the Oregon Coast. Location is perched on a bluff, away from the freeway and overlooking the Pacific – accessed on a dead end road. The property manager (owner?) has high standards for preserving... More

Excellent location and friendly service. The rooms are large and clean, with good facilities. My main problem was the darkness of the rooms, whose windows look out onto a passageway/sun porch, then onto the view beyond. The decor was a little dated/drab, and the mattress was old and lumpy. I'd recommend it for a night on the way through, but... More

I was traveling up the Oregon Coast, and decided to stop for the night in Port Orford. I found this gem on a cliff above the harbor. The owner was very nice. Nice rooms, nothing fancy, but clean, well maintained, with a comfortable bed.

Took our first trip up the Oregon coast. We just drive till we were tired! We stopped in Port Orford and found a charming little motel over looking the ocean.....clean, convenient, and the owner was very accommodating. We would definitely go back ;)!

This was our first time to stay at Castaway, but we will definitely stay there again. we had a lower room and the owner was telling us they have removed the closets in these rooms and opened up the wall for an awesome view from the bedroom of the ocean. We loved all the windows and the little "sun porch".... More

We are back again for our third time. Rockne is great and makes us feel like family. We had an upper room this time and the view is even better which is hard to believe. We were there for a week and wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back.

My wife and I were travelling for our honeymoon and greatly enjoyed our stay at Castaway. It was the only Motel on our journey but the room, while dark, was clean and the owner of the motel was incredibly friendly and accommodating. My only criticisms would be a) that the rooms need better lighting; and 2) that the power outlets... More

My husband and I stayed here on our way to meet our daughter and family in Cannon Beach, OR. Pet friendly. Absolutely beautiful location. There are suites, but we stayed in a room on the back that had an absolutly awesome view of the ocean. The owner was super! I didn't get to talk to him, but my husband found... More

After an enjoyable visit here last Fall, we were happy to stay at Castaway again. Our room had a broad view of the bay, down the coast, and the boat dock. We sank into the bed at night and slept well. A bright ship's light shone across our room in the middle of the night (an uncommon occurrence) and we... More

What a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean! The view is the absolute best quality of the hotel. The management are friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The beds in our room (condo) were extremely comfortable. The rooms are clean but dated and the drywall had water stains. There was a... More
