I took a solo, weekend, retreat at the Sandpiper. The hosts were gracious and friendly. The Location is stellar - from the beach you cannot see any other property. It feels isolated only 2 miles from the new Seabrook! There is gas and food closeby in Pacific city. The guests seemed middle class and friendly - lots of kids and... More

Two things going for it; cheap and beach access. If you want anything else, this place is not for you. We booked a room and they called back the next day to say it was already taken. The room they put us in was above water purification and heard loud banging the whole night. Complaining went no where, the owner... More

We found this place after searching for a place to stay while traveling through and we were VERY disappointed!! It is apparent this place used to be nice at one time but has been run into the ground. The room had a very pretty view but was disgusting. The water smelled rusty and we weren't even sure the sheets were... More

Paper thin walls and very squeaky mattresses allow you to hear EVERY bump and grind from the neighbors around you. Enjoy - or not! Our murphy bed was right next to the drain pipes from the upstairs bathroom so we knew exactly what was going on and when from the neighbors above us. Easy to hear all the details before... More

I give them that the room was clean. But noise! The toilet ran (the repairman stopped by just after I checked in, but then the toilet wasn't working at all; when he left it ran continually). They let dogs stay there, and, of course, I ended up next to a couple with two barking dogs. Fortunately, they eventually simmered down.... More

A friend and I were there mid week in late May. We had an end unit on the 3rd floor. It was very clean and had wonderful views of the beach/ocean. I loved the rocking chairs on the deck. While the furnishings were a bit older everything was nice. I imagine it is much busier on the weekends but mid... More

It had been a few years since I had time to get out to the coast, but I was very glad to find a last minute vacancy at my favorite lodging the Sandpiper Beach Resort in Pacific Beach. And I was even gladder to see that the Sandpiper was as wonderful as ever. The Sandpiper is located right on a... More

Pacific Beach is gorgeous and definitely worth a visit, but I'd strongly recommend picking a different lodging location. My family and I have been going there for years because we all have dogs and the hotel is dog friendly. Those are the pros. Now for the cons. The place is pretty run down. It clearly has never had any updates... More

We stayed here over the weekend in cabin 4 for razor clamming. There were 8 of us and it was not big enough. Pictures are nothing like what it actually looks like. 3 double beds and two twin beds (two rooms, one bath) the beds are so worn out they bow. Very run down, water is yellow and smells like... More

I have been going to the sandpiper for 30 plus years. A perfect, quite getaway, especially for dog lovers. We were delighted that there was new management! However, I was just going to book for this spring break and called to see if Jeff and Ben where still managing the property. Unfortunately, they are not. I will not be booking.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sandpiper Beach Resort is located on Washington's wild Pacific Coast, two miles south of the town of Pacific Beach in Grays Harbor County, roughly 3 hours' drive west of Seattle. The resort, founded in 1973, is nestled on a forested hillside directly on Mocrocks beach, a miles-long strip of flat, sandy beach known for its crashing surf, adjacent clay bluffs, and solitude. Offshore, fishing boats and whales ply the pristine waters of the Copalis National Wildlife Refuge.At the Sandpiper, our goal is to provide you with a clean, comfortable, functional and affordable place to get away from it all and enjoy the company of those you're traveling with. Accommodations range from small cabins or studios with room for 2-4 guests, up to large cabins or multi-bedroom units that are perfect for groups as large as 12. Each unit includes a fully-equipped kitchen, fireplace, sweeping ocean view, and a private deck or patio with rocking or lounge chairs for taking in the sunset with a glass of wine in hand.Sandpiper guests pass their time in a range of activities. Long walks on the beach are a must in any season. A winter day might be spent inside by the fire, watching a storm roll in off the Pacific. The wind is often perfect for kite-flying, while a warm day in July or August finds many guests swimming or body-surfing in the cool ocean waves.The Sandpiper infuses kids and dogs with a special energy; both are welcome and encouraged here. Generations of Northwest families have made the Sandpiper a home away from home.Our position by the world's most productive razor clam beds, together with our handy Clam Kitchen, draws visitors during licensed digs throughout the fall, winter and spring. Fishermen don hip-waders and stride into the waves after tasty surfperch. Indoors, you might cook up a delicious meal, read a good book, or tackle a board game or puzzle. At night, a cozy bed and the soft roar of the ocean will allow you to drift off and perhaps even sleep in late.If cabin fever strikes, head over to our Gift Shop to sip an espresso, use the free Wi-Fi, and shop for a memento of your stay or a gift for a loved one. Hop in the car to explore all that coastal Washington has to offer, from horseback riding on the beach at Ocean Shores, to hiking the temperate rain forest or alpine peaks of nearby Olympic National Park. The closest town, Pacific Beach, housed a secret Cold War-era submarine-listening post, which is now a recreation facility open to the public.A bit further north in Moclips, the Museum of the North Beach chronicles the unexpectedly rich history of the area. The beaches of the Quinault Indian Nation hide remote treasures like the much-photographed Tunnel Island; visit tribal headquarters in Taholah for a day pass, or engage a tribal guide for world-class salmon fishing on the Quinault River.The Sandpiper is a true retreat, with no TVs or phones to disturb your stay, and only limited cell phone service in the area. Join us at the edge of the earth to get away from it all! ... more   less
