“Class A Service in a Class B Property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

We spent two nights here during the Southern Oregon Crab Festival in Brookings. We found the room competent and clean, with the amenities we wanted, fridge, microwave, etc. Bed was comfortable. Cosmetics and soaps provided were first class from Bed Bath & Beyond. I would rate the stay lower but for the excellent service management provided. We had a couple of special requests which were always quickly accommodated with a smile. There is a little road noise, but not particularly bothersome.

My only negative was the soda and ice machines which sit out on an open area with a open top trash can sitting right next to them and often trash on the ground. A minor issue, but one that could be easily fixed with some screening.

Great and inexpensive motel for fishermen who fish for salmon and steelhead on the Chetco River. Used our AAA card and asked for the Fishermen Special Rate. Rooms were clean, spacious and had everything we need. Motel also had a freezer for us to use. There are more drift boats in the parking lot than cars at times, so it's one big happy fishing family. Wild River Pizza is just down the street and Ray's Food Place Cafe is open at 6am for breakfast and coffee. You can also clean your fish down at the Pubic Marina/Harbor and they have bathrooms. It was the perfect location, reasonable and clean. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: King size bedroom had a lot of space and hardwood floors.

We were talking to one of the locals in town and asked where to stay in town. He said to check out Wild Rivers Motorlodge. We went over and the price was right, then we checked out the room. The room was very clean with a nice and very large bathroom. Although we were not there long we had a great stay. I would recommend this place to anyone going to Brooking. Thank you for a great stay.

The pet friendly rooms have tile instead of carpeting. Which helps with keeping it clean and you don't have to worry about sandy or dirty feet or soiled kitty litter. Keeps the allergens down too.

Peaked roof in room makes the room even bigger. The bath and tile floor all looks and feels new. The give out bath & body brand shampoo etc.

And nice wall unit holds tv, frig and microwave and makes it look chic, in stead of an afterthought to throw in frig and microwave. Closet is separate and has own door soup don't have to look at a mess.

Covered walkway helps you get in and out of room dry.

Very friendly help and offered discount for mid week drop in.

Close to town and ammenities .

Will definately stay again.

Older motel but clean rooms and recent updates. Pet friendly with prior approval but no real pet relief area except behind the motel by the gas station. Includes a small fridge and microwave making it convenient for eating in the room. A/C not helpful for hot nights but they will bring you a fan. Some road noise at night especially if you leave your windows open to cool the room down. Because of the heat throughout the night and inability of the A/C to lower the temperature, we rated our sleep quality poor but the King size bed was adequate and extra pillows were immediately delivered upon request.

This is an older place but it was comfortable and clean and the folks that own it are very helpful and friendly. Close to everything. Had fridge and micro and bed was comfortable. We found a really good deal by booking online. We don't have a pet but they have pet friendly rooms. It's a nice walk down to the Port of Brookings.

Clean, but old...however, they were pet friendly and the price was right. Front desk staff was helpful. Road noise was troubling, but not much can be done about that. You can walk to most spots in town and there is a city park about a block up the hill.Check it out!

Thank you for reviewing our hotel, The Wild Rivers Motorlodge. We appreciate that you noticed our rooms are clean. We are known throughout the town for our cleanliness and friendliness. During the summer months, the road traffic can be heavy throughout the day, but we sincerely hope that it quieted down for you as the evening progressed, which it normally does. The City park, Azalea Park which you mentioned is certainly one of Brookings’ gems, we’re glad you enjoyed it. We hope to see you again when you travel to Brookings in the future.
