This motel is a gem! Great location tucked on a hillside overlooking the bay in Port Orford. After taking a day long day trip south along Hwy 101, we ended our trip here. The owner was friendly, organized, and had suggestions for dinner. The room was homey with a small sunroom/back porch on the back of the room-----complete with rocking... More

We just ended another great stay at Castaway. We just love this place. We just happen to meet the man who takes the agate pictures that are in the office and the rooms. He told us about the pictures and the agates. We love looking for agates and we had a great time with him. Can't wait till next year... More

We didn't meet the manager who was absent for the weekend, but both the volunteer replacements were very welcoming and helpful with information about the local restaurants. We had booked a room with queen sized bed which would have been fine. it was quite spacious enough but, for privacy, we would have had to close the curtains and thus not... More

After working a ton of overtime this year, the wife and I decided it was time to get away to one of our favorite places, the castaway in port orford. We stayed for three nights, and it was great as always. We got the room with the kitchen, living room area and one bedroom downstairs, and you go up a... More

Had a great break by staying at the Castaway by the Sea in Port Orford, Oregon. The rooms are clean and basic but have everything you need. They also have a great ocean view and when the Manager told me I had a good chance of seeing whales it sounded to good to be true, but lo and behold, like... More

The location is amazing and the service exceptional. During the course of 20+ years I have been to this place multiple times and and it never gets old. It's lovely and I have and continue to share this place with family and friends.

This hotel is worth 5 stars for the view alone. The proprietor is so nice and the location is a delightful surprise! Every room has a wonderful view and sun deck from which you can watch local fishermen lowering their boats in the morning into the water from the dock on the far right of the Port. Rooms are older...

This lovely small hotel is just a bit off Highway 101 and is a find. While it could use a bit of updating- the bed is soft- it is spacious and has a wonderful Sun Room overlooking the Pacific Ocean. When the sun is out, you can see for miles. We also heard that at times you can see whales.... More

We spent one night and had a room near the office. It was quiet, old but clean and with many nice touches and . . . we saw 3 whales from our enclosed porch. It's really an amazing setting. The only thing I had a problem with was the super soft bed. No coffee maker in the room or available... More

We didn't intend to stopover in Port Orford, but rounding the curve in 'town', we saw the huge letters on the pavement leading up the hill "OCEAN VIEW". Expecting only pictures of the Pacific, we drove up and while stopped at the overlook, we spotted the hotel to our right and decided to check it out. So glad we did,... More
