“Tired Pet Friendly Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Spent 3 days playing golf at Bandon Dunes. Couldn't stay there because they didn't accepts pets. This hotel was rated high on Tripadvisor and was on the beach so we picked it. If your looking for ocean views from your room, you can't go wrong here. Rooms are basically on the beach. The bathrooms are extremely small and the rooms are dated and in need of some repair.
No food served and a short drive to town will solve that. For the price, you are paying for ocean front, nothing else. Probably wouldn't stay here again.

Hello, and thank you for your response. I am sorry you weren't as comfortable in our rooms as you would like to be. Keep in mind that we do have King Deluxe rooms if you are looking for more amenities. Our original buildings were built in 1936 and offer a vintage beach cottage experience.

Leigh and Angie were incredibly friendly Inn Keepers. Just ask, they will help you with anything. The views are amazing and the location is perfect. Sleep with the door open to the ocean waves crashing. Relaxing strolls on the beach are literally out your door. Old Town Bandon is a quick drive with plenty of free parking. The rooms are dated but exceptionally well maintained and clean.

Room Tip: Fireplace room at the top of the beach path(Rm. 22)... Perfect!

We traveled from SFO to SEA and found this great Hotel in the travel guide. Wonderful beach hotel at the Oregon Beach. Very friendly and supportive staff. Clean rooms, comfortable beds and a great ocean view. The Htel is located close to the charmful old village of Bandon where the Edgewater's restaurant offers great food. Thanks for the advice, Windermere staff ;-)

Room Tip: Choose an ocean view room :-)

Great location. Great choice of rooms both with and without kitchens. Easy beach access. Quite. Clean. Consistently good year after year. Friendly service is there to welcome you. Plenty of good restaurants nearby many with a focus on fresh seafood.

Thank goodness the Best Western hotel across the road were not very nice. For the next place we stopped was the Windermere on the Beach which turned out to be one of the best places we stayed in on our six week road trip of the Western United States. The staff was very nice and helpful and the room was more than perfect. The small kitchen area gave us a break from dining out and the fireplace was a great added touch. Stunning views from our balcony of the Pacific Ocean and more than enough entertainment in "Old Town" Bandon. Do not miss this jewel if you are traveling in Western Oregon.

Sadly we also only stayed here for one night and the whole family wished it could have been more. The cottage was fine for 5 people, clean, good beds and bathrooms. The kitchen was cute with stunning views and it was nice to be able to eat at home. The beach is lovely and huge and the location is a real treat. Would definitely aim for here next time.

This was our third trip to the Windermere in 2 years. We absolutely love it here! This place has the best ocean views and easy walk down to the beach below. We love old town Bandon, which is just a short 4 - 5 minute drive from the Windermere, where there is shopping, plenty of places to eat (The Bandon Bakery/Deli has the best cinnamon rolls around) or go out on a charter and get your own fish (we had a blast on the Prowler Charter). The family cottage has a kitchen and an upstairs if you have guests or kids that need their own beds. Yes, the bathroom is a bit small, but that doesn't bother us in the least. Open the sliding glass door and you get to see and hear the beautiful ocean just outside! Take a walk out to the beach and head towards Face Rock and you can see the plenty of tide pools below and caves. The best thing I love about the Bandon beaches are that they are never crowded! The most I've seen have been a few couples or a small family with kids and us. There are also stables nearby if you'd like to enjoy your beach on horseback. We watched the riders go by as the sun was beginning to set. Very beautiful! We aren't golfers, but if you like to golf, the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort (I hear is absolutely fantastic)! We found Bandon by accident on our first trip up HWY 101 driving north and are so glad that we did! We will be returning in late February/March for our wedding anniversary! Can't wait to make it back here!
