The price was good and they fill up slow so they tend to have a room even when everyone else is full. Nothing remarkable - Good or bad. Except their staff was quite friendly. ...The free breakfast was pitiful. Packaged Danish, fruit cup, coffee. Clean room, comfy bed, micro n fridge, tiny tv, no air cond. room smelled strongly of...

It was getting late (9pm) while traveling and we were finding all motels in the area had "no vacancy". We finally resorted to momandpopmotels.com. There were only 4 on the list so we called each one. There were only two with vacancies. Mar Clair was significantly cheaper than the others we were finding in the area. We were given a... More

Mar Clair motel was clean, the bed was comfortable, the staff was wonderful. and it was reasonably priced. All the motels were booked, and the Mar normally would not have been our first choice, but I am very happy with our stay there. It is a older hotel with no elevator, but has a pool, and hot tub.

7 of us stayed at the mar clair for a weekend. We rented two rooms, for all of us, with kitchenettes. The rooms were neat and clean. The kitchens had most things we needed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I was surprised how quiet it was being so close to 101. The seafood restaurant in the same parking... More

The place was pretty minimalist. Decor is dated, and there is no coffee maker, microwave, fridge, or alarm clock. Buy your bottled water before you tuck yourself in for the night, as Tillamook water is heavily chlorinated. That smell out back? It's a dairy, and it smells like money. Ignore it. We ended up here in desperation, as good weather... More

The only positive thing I can say about this place was that it is was clean. The drain in the bathroom was clogged so by the time you were done with your shower you were ankle deep in soapy water. They have no AC, and when we opened the windows the screen was missing. When I called about the AC,... More

This is an older hotel in the heart of Tillamook Oregon. There were cobwebs all over our room as if it had not been cleaned in years. We ended up sleeping on top of the bed linen as it smelled pretty bad, it was the last room so we could not change rooms. We could not get the shower to... More

The Mar Clair Motel is a dump, priced way too high at $86+tax (Sept 2014). Continental breakfast consists of a cup of coffee and your choice of flavors of Sven’s 3” sweet roll, that's it! The whole motel is old and in process of falling apart. The room was dirty, beds are old. The AC, well, it doesn’t have any,... More

Comfortable room and a friendly, helpful manager. Restaurant next door. We started checking in mentioning AARP and then asked if there was a refrigerator for meds. Switched us to a back room, far from the highway for the same price. Very quiet location. Our budget was under $100 so we were happy. Down town is a block away.

What a great little find this was. We drove in at random so no booking & I felt so welcomed it was crazy. Our room was very comfy & neat. The hotel may not be a big brand or anything but gosh ... Great prices, good sleep - def give this a go.
