I really like this hotel, and have stayed here a number of times. The owners are very nice and I enjoy the informality. This is not a fussy hotel, but it is a great value with clean nice rooms. It is a 5-10 minute walk to the beach, so you can go for multiple trips. Kitchen was well stocked and... More

Wow, how often can you find a cozy home away from home. The Razor Clam Cottage one of three, is just that. I was so pleased with the staff and how welcomed we were to the Sand Dollar Inn. Cindy was so helpful and helped us to be involved in the shuttle running to the Quinault Canoe Paddling that came... More

We have been coming to the Sand Dollar Inn at least twice a year since 2001. We stay at the main inn, which has 8 rooms and is always very clean, cozy and quiet. There is a patio in the back for bbq and it is less than a block to the beach. The staff is polite and helpful. The... More

We have stayed here before and always enjoy the suite which is at the top of the building. It is one long room with windows facing out toward the ocean, the comforts of home with a nice kitchen, living room, and wonderful bedroom with bath. Inexpensive! The Inn also has two floors with different configurations of rooms and those are... More

I immediately fell in love with this inn. There is no easier way to win my heart than with an immaculate bedroom and bathroom. Every inch of the room was a spotless delight. The walls are concrete but merrily painted in blue, and the furniture, while a bit heavy on the kitschy sea theme is comfortable and in good shape.... More

Pacific Beach has a fantastic beach! Rolling, not crashing waves, lots of beach to explore in both directions. I wasn't sure what to expect from the Sand Dollar Inn and was pleasantly surprised. My parents, my husband, and I stayed in Room 6, and from the drawing, it looked much smaller than it is. There was enough room, though not... More

Your comments are appreciated and glad you enjoyed your stay at Sand Dollar Inn & Cottages. With the exception of Room #1 (with microwave, mini-fridge and coffee maker), all rooms have full kitchens. We would have been happy to give you a new frying pan (and new ones have been placed in Room #6). That room actually has a large... More

We stayed at the Sand Dollar for an extended family get together. It was nice to have a full kitchen and plenty of beds. We stayed in room 7, which sleeps 6, but the dining table was set up to seat 3. There are plastic chairs right outside the door so we used those and there was an extra chair... More

We are pleased you enjoyed your visit with us at Sand Dollar Inn & Cottages. It is popular for family gatherings, reunions, etc. Room types vary and we do have rooms with separate bedrooms with doors (#6 and Penthouse). Another option is one of the cottages with two or three bedrooms. Looking forward to having you return! Thank you. More
