This was a complete disappointment. The rooms are aging badly, with saggy and uncomfortable old mattresses. The tub didn't have a plug so we couldn't bathe our kids. At least the bathtub/toilet/sink area and frig in the kitchenette were clean, although the kitchenette was not well stocked. They only provided three towels when they knew there were four guests.

The views are great, right on the ocean. Rooms are quiet considering how close it is to the ocean. Outdated facility with old bathrooms. I didn't find the morning game of 'how not to get burnt in the shower' very appealing.

We came upon this hotel on a dark and rainy night in the dark. Lights were on, so we stopped. What a welcoming owner. He had availability and offered us to see the room before we committed. It was tastefully decorated and very clean and an updated bathroom. Nice! Because we were late getting in, we didn't really look around... More

Nice to wake up in the morning with the Pacific Ocean right outside your window and door. The beach is 50 ft. away. Awesome view! In a nice little beach community that is mighty sleepy this time of the year. Very little tourist traffic at the end of October. Nice room with refrigerator/freezer and microwave oven. Even has Real Cups... More

Beautiful oceanfront view and it was clean. Beyond that, this motel was a disappointment. ADA room had a bathtub with poorly positioned grab bars and no hand-held shower -- very difficult if you have to assist someone. Decor is firmly stuck in the early 1980s -- a downer. We won't be staying here again.

We just came back from our 3rd annual trip to the Silver Sands Motel on Rockaway Beach, OR (the motel is literally on the beach). This is the only place that LIKES pets, and accommodates their needs (poop bags and container, hose to wash off the dog and our feet), and all the dogs here feel welcome. Needless to say,... More

We've stayed here many times in the last 25 years, but sorry to say this is probably our last stay. First, this is a great location on a wonderful uncrowded beach, Unfortunately it is just too run down for the money. It is in serious need of upgrades and maintenance and is more like an run down inner city motel... More

Nice speedy check in and given an ocean view room (that we had requested). Room was quite spacious with good shower (if you have read any of our other reviews, you know we like a good shower)! Best thing was opening the back door of the hotel room and stepping out onto the beach - you only get this with... More

This hotel could be one of those gems, but it really needs help. Our 25-year old son booked a suite/2 room unit when we were visiting him and wanted to scope out the coast. The location is great: right on the beach in a quiet town. Here's what it could be: a comfortable, clean, unpretentious hotel where a couple or... More

We’ve stayed there a few times now. The first two times were great. The service was good. The rooms were clean. The maid staff was very friendly. No complaints. However our last visit leads me to believe (as others have stated) that this hotel had gone downhill. First off we reserved a ground level room. I even called to confirm... More
