It is an older motel but a nice one. It adjoins the Promenade and the beach is on the other side. Our room was clean and we had everything we needed. As with all the beach hotels, don't expect the Promenade to quiet down much before midnight on weekends and in the heat of the summer. The price was right,... More

The lady at the front was very nice as she helped answer tons of questions. Beware, the hotel is very old and unattractive. Nice view. Very shady though. Lots of partiers and lots of drunks and drug users hanging out all night. I was very nervous about being a widow with a young kid and staying there. Very creepy! Awesome... More

My wife and I stayed here the weekend of 2/27/2015. The room was clean and the view was outstanding. An amazing weather weekend for Oregon at this time...Mid 50's, no rain, no wind, no clouds. We paid $82 a night not including the $14 fee at the end of our stay (be aware of that). The bed was not too... More

The room was very large and clean. The room had a lovely view of the beach from the window. The price was great and the people at the front desk very nice and helpful. Also, very close to the downtown area with many different atractions.

I knew this was an older motel and to not expect some of the amenities that you might get at other places. I reserved a non-smoking room, which I did get. Unfortunately, the room next door with the connecting door to mine was not. The cigarette smoke from the room next door got so overwhelming at one point, I had... More

Great prices last time and stayed in room #22 up top and was perfect with view, this time stayed in the white cottage and was very small and bed was hard as a rock and not worth the price . Would still come back.

The room was very large and had a great view of the ocean. Not too much updating done, besides the flat screen TV. It did have a funky stale smell, probably from the wood paneling. The bathroom was the worst, the floor was disgusting, the shower was dirty and dingy, my teenage kids refused to use the shower.

Paper thin walls, heavy solid doors slamming goin on, noisy motel guests don't consider anyone else is staying here. everything is bolted down against thieves, but who would want to take any of this, really? The bed caves in the center the pillows are stuffed with bark and coconut shells, headache, backache. 125 bucks a night, and there is an... More

We normally stay in the #9 cabin. This time was in an ocean front room. The room was clean and the view is wonderful. My only complaint is if I'm paying almost $150 a night, I shouldn't have to pay for shampoo and conditioner when all the other hotels supply it for free.

Felt like I was in section 8. Room smelled old and bathroom had tape on the walls and rust stains under the sink . We arrived and was told their computer crashed and was asked if we wanted an upgrade to an upper level floor since they had given our room to someone else. We really had no choice. If... More
