The service was over and above, just like family. Very clean and the view was unbelievable. We are coming back this fall !

The motel staff are pleasant and helpful; the price is reasonable; the room was smallish but entirely adequate.....the LOCATION is FABULOUS, and an excellent reason to stay at this motel. It is perched out on a point overlooking the ocean....we dropped our bags in our room, ditched our shoes, and went down the excellent staircase to the beach, where we spent HOURS walking among the rocks and waves.....Then we went and ate at Tony's Crab Shack, in the Old Town, upon the recommendation of the motel staff, and it was delicious AND reasonably priced. Loved it here.

I called at 2:00 ( as directed) to see about early check-in. I was told it wouldn't be possible. So I rolled up at 4:00 (check-in time) and was given my room assignment by a very nice gentleman. he seemed so nice that i was only mildly annoyed at having to wait another 15 minutes for my room to get ready. (If you knew at 2:00 that I was ready to get into my room, wouldn't mine be one of the first rooms you cleaned to ensure that it's at least ready by 4:00?)

My room was $139 on a Tuesday night...which, from what I can tell, is more than typical for this type of room/hotel in Bandon.

For that price, I expect my ocean view to be quite nice. Mine sucked! The window was about 75% parking lot and 25% ocean (as in just the still blue ocean - no waves crashing into the beach - because to see that from my angle, I'd have needed to be about 6 stories higher).....
If I stood in just the right spot in the corner of the room, hen it was more like 50% ocean.

Having said that, it looked like several (most?) of the rooms had great views. But I didn't seem to get a discount for having a crappy "oceanfront" view. I'd have asked for a different room, but there were no better rooms available.

If not a great view, I would expect more frills for that price. There were none. No pool, no breakfast, etc.

The room itself was fine, although the beds were pretty firm and I prefer soft. I had a room with a kitchenette....and the cupboards all had the doors removed....i thought that was odd and and a little unaesthetic, but it didn't really change my opinion of the room.

It's not only the view, but also the friendly staff, the clean rooms and the direct access to the beach that make the bandon beach motel a really nice place to stay.
We really enjoyed our vacation at this unique place at the beach with the seals and sealions, the rocks and the sand...
The coffee was good (even for Europeans) and the rooms were perfectly cleaned. It's amazing what you made out of this motel.
We stayed two nights in room 108, which was really nice, and for one night we had room 206, which was just breathtaking.

If you are looking for a no-nonsense motel with a spectacular view (get a second floor ocean view room) you will not be disappointed. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The room was not fancy but was functional (frig and microwave). This place is about location, location, location. Perched on a cliff overlooking the Pacific right next to a beach access staircase. Enjoy!

The room was reasonably sized, double bed, small round table, 2 chairs, TV, fridge, microwave,coffee maker. Clean & well decorated. Expensive considering the lack of amenities but one is paying for the view.

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a trip around Oregon. Based on previous reviews here, we specified room 206 which gave fantastic views of the coastline and we were not disappointed. It is a very friendly family-run motel and they were all very helpful and ready to give advice about the surrounding area. They have only been running the motel for the last twelve to eighteen months and are gradually working on improving it. Although the weather was not that good, we spent as much time as possible exploring the beach, it can be easily reached from steps just outside the motel. The room was very cosy and the fire came in useful to dry our clothes after getting caught in heavy rain.

The motel is situated a little way outside of the town but in good weather it would have been possible to walk there with no problem. Bandon itself is a quaint little town and good breakfasts can be found at the Minute Cafe,

Don't be put off by the exterior of the motel, this is a wonderful place to stay and if we ever return to Oregon we would certainly stay again, hopefully with better weather the next time.

Just one thing to note, there is another run-down motel just before you get to the Bandon Beach Motel with a similar name which caused a bit of panic until we drove past and recognised our motel from the pictures on the website.
