Stayed in the Lodge and thought it was great - comfy, spacious, historic and great views when the fog cleared. Friendly welcome and helpful advice. Good place for families. Dinner at Crazy Norwegian's and breakfast hotcakes at Paradise Cafe also very good.

Castaway By the Sea is an older pet friendly accommodation just a short walk away from a beach that the locals use as their "dog beach". We had a split level condo suite, an upstairs unit that had an enclosed sun porch from which you could watch the fishing boats being lifted in and out of the water. It had... More

Port Orford is a tiny little town on Oregon's southern coast. There are not a lot of options available, but this worked out fine. The property is dated, but very clean. Our host was very friendly and helpful regarding dinner choices... which are also limited. (We had a lovely dinner at Griff's on the dock directly below the motel.) The... More

My husband and I stayed here while travelling the Oregon Coast. We stayed one night in a standard room. The sunset was spectacular and it was fun to see the boats being lifted onto the dock! The fog had set in the following morning but it was still very beautiful. The manager was very friendly and helpful!

Stayed here one night while working our way up the coast. Very friendly service at check in. Sure, the decor is dated, but it was clean and the lighting in the room was very good! The view of the bay is outstanding and so relaxing! After it got a bit chilly and windy, the enclosed sun porch right outside our... More

An older place but well maintained. Our room had a glassed in porch and chairs overlooking the bay which was just great. The bed needs to be replaced but that is the only negative. We would stay here again.

Wonderful location facing the water. We got the last room. A dredge had arrived in the bay and we had fun watching it. Quiet area. Friendly staff, amazing view, good price. The mattress could probably be replaced and the tub needed a quick rinse, but mostly, we were sitting on the sun porch looking at the view! If you like... More

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.
