Not a lot of choices to stay in Port Orford. After traveling all day along the coastal highway, this was a wonderful find. Owner let me check out the room first. Yes the place is older, without a lot of amenities that newer places have but the room was comfortable and clean. Sunset and sunrise are Unbelievable!!!! That made up... More

The view at sunset was excellent. We enjoyed sitting in the enclosed sun deck very much. The bed was very comfortable. The unit was very clean. The price reflects the age of the unit. I wish it would have been updated. We are very glad we chose " Castaway by the Sea".

My wife and I stayed at the Castaway By the Sea over the holidays. We had a beautiful room tastefully decorated with a private enclosed patio. It has a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. We were both so pleased with our choice at first! Then when the unit above us was occupied all we could hear was the running... More

We stayed a night in a double queen room. We were right by the office but had a great little sun room to enjoy the breath-taking views of the port and the cape. The owner is very knowledgeable about the very best photo-ops. The room was very clean and beds were comfortable. I highly recommend the Castaway!

We drove into Port Orford at sundown, had a bite to eat and asked the locals for a place to stay. This was a very neat, friendly, clean, cozy apartment type inn. nice little town where you can watch the boats come in and out from your private porch.

Stayed one night and booked the Standard Queen room. We chose Port Orford as it was 1/2 way from one location to our next as we toured the Pacific Coast Highway. We had been on our Road Trip for 10 days prior to our night here. Booked based on TA Reviews. All of our hotels up-to & after this location... More

This is an older motel, right on the cliff overlooking the bay. Some of the rooms have been updated, that said we took one of the older and hence less expensive rooms as we would be arriving well after dark and leaving right in the morning. The room was a good size and clean, but definitely older furniture, no fridge... More

We stayed in one of the split-level condo suites, and it was warm and welcoming. The sun porch has a great view of the harbor, and the eclectic decorations and furniture makes this a fun place to be. Beds were comfortable, and the staff friendly and accommodating.

My family has been staying at the Castaway By the Sea for the past 10 years. Our latest trip was in September 2014. The Castaway is one of our favorite destinations. The rooms are large and comfortable. The view from the room is amazing! We always get a room with a full kitchen, so we can cook instead of going... More

If this place were not on a cliff over an awesome Pacific Bay view, it would be just an "average" small town place. We were in the 1950's part and it did feel like staying at Grandma's. (There is a newer section that may be more updated.) But our room also had an enclosed porch with some open windows to... More
