“OK Place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This was an OK place. Nothing to write home about. Manager was very curt. not the most friendly type. No problem when we asked for extra pillows, and had recommendations for restaurants. Get an upstairs room if you can, sounds like elephants overhead when it is time to sleep. Nice view. We had to walk across the field to see. It was so foggy all along the coast our entire trip.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We read the reviews before we booked our room and were very pleased. The location is great, room was clean, and the beds comfortable. The weather was hot but the air conditioner worked great and the room was cool. Michael was friendly, helpful, and gave us two great restaurant recommendations. The only suggestion we might make for the future is to upgrade the towels a bit - they were a little rough. Otherwise, couldn't beat the price.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor, which meant carrying luggage upstairs, but also meant noise was limited...

Thought manager was nice guy until we did'nt follow all his rules perfectly. Suddenly became aggressive and threatening over very minor incident. His wife wanted to kick us out. Scary people. Don't complain about anything or else! Every sound in building very loud. Could'nt get any sleep there. Will never stay there again. Even Motel 6 is better. Also told them we did not want anyone in our room, we had a lot of stuff laying around. They disregarded our wishes and went through our room anyway. Overall, a creepy experience. Would never stay there again. Ruined our vacation.

So im not saying to not stay there or anything bad it was a great place until come night time.
we paid almost 100 bucks for a room just me and my husband, we got a knock at our door word by word " can you please just sit on you bed and not moved im getting a complaint from the person down stairs and i cant afford to loose her" i found it very rude knowing i paid so much to be told not move or make a sound i will not be staying there again.

Room Tip: pay attention to the hotel

My sister and I went to Brookings for a girls weekend getaway. We decided to stay at the Spindrift Motor Inn based on the reviews we had read on Trip Advisor. We were very pleased with our stay. Like most reviews I agree the furnishings/decor were old but the motel was cared for, clean and had everything you would need. The price seemed fair as well. But the best part was the excellent customer service from the owners. Michael was so friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. We had a great stay and will definitely go back!

We staid a night here on our way to San Francisco. The guy at the front desk was very pleasant, the parking was great, and the view beautiful. The room wasn't anything fancy, but it was mostly clean and quite spacious! Would definitely stay here again.

What a great little inn! Michael & Myrtle were very hospitable! Our room was clean, comfortable and beyond reasonably priced. We were on the 2nd floor and had a great view of the ocean and easy beach access was just up the road. If we ever make it back down the coast we will definitely be booking our stay with Michael & Myrtle!
