“Great beach location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Tough to beat this for beach access, particularly if you had children along. A nicely equipped room with a king bed and kitchen sink and microwave directly overlooking a big flat beach, from 2nd floor. An easy 100 yard walk out the door to the waters edge. Very safe on a calm day, but as always with ocean, keep alert...I had two pleasant early morning walks there. We had a little problem with maid service but it was promptly followed up by management and with greater concern and care than we thought necessary, but still appreciated by us. Breakfast- eat in, or as we did, drive the two miles to Bandon harbor for local color breakfast. We are not golfers so can't comment on how the Windermere works if that is what you have in mind.

Windermere is a collection cute little 3 unit cabins. We were on the top floor of one of these and the view was spectacular. There's quick access to the beach- which was the best beach we found on our trip up the coast. The Kitchenette was well stocked. They had nice facilities for the Dog. All in all I'd say iy was very clean and welcoming.

My family has been traveling to Oregon for years, we usually stay in Florence but thought this year we would try somewhere closer to the Redwoods. I'm so glad we did, what a beautiful place Windermere is. The beach is like to other...the view is spectacular and the owners are super nice!! Love their dog too! This place is so peaceful. We ate breakfast at the Best Western across the street every morning, it was delicious and the staff there are also wonderful! This will be our new destination for now on when visiting Oregon!

Thank you for your review! We do have amazing views from our rooms! Although our rooms are comparable to other ocean-front properties, it sounds like you need to be more price conscious and we understand that.

if you want an all inclusive super deluxe experience this is not for you, and you aren't for this place. it you are looking for a place that is more out of the way than even Bandon itself, if you are looking for very clean, very comfortable place to sleep and eat after exploring the lovely beach in both amazing directions and being taken care by wonderfully friendly people, stay here. i have never had a more pleasant two days in my life, wish we had a month. if being outside at the ocean is your goal, look no further.

Room Tip: we looked at one of the original, it was nice, ours (01) had been redone, it was nice, nothing fancy...

Saying you were sorry you had to leave is one of the best compliments! You are right, the Windermere is a special place and not for everyone. We hope you can return again and stay that month you were hoping for!

We chose this spot from the website and stayed here a few days in mid-August. The inn keeper told us the hotel was built in the 1930's and it has that homey charm. But it has been updated for the most modern of conveniences. The large windows overlooking the coast are amazing. Clean and comfortable, not the Ritz, but the Ritz does not have this view. The quick walk down to the fantastic beach was wonderful and our walks along the coast northward brought us to an area with unbelieveable numbers, colors and assortments of sea anemone, sea stars and other wonderous water creatures. A quick walk up and a short drive to town and we were crabbing with the locals.

Room Tip: There are 3 types of rooms here, ones with an upstairs bedroom and donwstairs bed and kitchenette, o...

We were not planning on staying the Windermere, but drove by on our way to another hotel and decided to check it out. Motel is dated, but kept clean and had fridge, microwave. Bathroom was small but did the job, great shower. Friendly and helpful staff. Easy beach access. Glad we stopped.
