“Wonderful beach access and breathtaking views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2007

Our trip began with no particular destination in mind but did decide to take our time on the south Oregon coast. I am so glad we did. The coast from Brookings to Gold Beach is a photographers dream.
We throughly enjoyed our ocean view room and were only slightly disapointed that the Spa was not working.
We will come back.

My boyfriend and I have visited the Sand And Sea motel many times and found that it great everytime. They have all the amenties of home in a very large room right on the ocean. In all I really liked it. And I will be going again soon.

I don't know why nobody else has listed or reviewed this fine motel overlooking a great beach.

My friend and I were booking hotels at the last minute for the Fourth of July weekend, part of a week-long West Coast roadtrip. Pretty much all the average to high-end lodgings were booked by then, except this one at Gold Beach. You can request to reserve rooms at their website at www.sandnseamotel.com or call them up with a toll-free number. At this point in time, I had to phone them. There were only two rooms left, both the same, except the first-floor one was smoking, and the second-floor one was non-smoking. Of course we picked the second-floor one. Even though I called twice to request an e-mailed confirmation of my reservation, I never received one.

When we got there, I was very surprised at the quality of the room. I believe it was housed in a newly built addition to the motel. I knew that it was an ocean-view room containing a king-size bed and a private balcony. I was very happy to also find a coffee maker (for my friend), a microwave, a mini-fridge, a loveseat, an ironing board and an iron, an ice bucket (our previous motel room didn't contain one), a very clean complete bathroom, and all the various supplies and furniture a motel room should contain. We also had free cable television and free local calls. The carpet was as decent and as clean as a motel room by a sandy beach can be. Being on the top-floor gave us a high vaulted ceiling. The private balcony (walls panelled between neighbors) had a great view of the Pacific Ocean. The beach was only a few dozen yards away. The sunset was awesome. In view was an A-frame cabin one could stay in a few feet from the beach.

There were restaurants next door and others that were walkable. We even received 15%-off coupons for two of them. The small spa house contained a couple of exercise equipment, a hot tub, and a bathroom for each gender. Unlike most places, the facility opens very early at 7 a.m. and closes very late at 11 p.m. They also provide continental breakfasts.

All in all, the $109 I paid for a night's stay during the Independence Day weekend was a bargain. I just wished we had arrived sooner than 9 p.m., but our roadtrip kept us from doing so. We tried to extend our check-out time the following day, but was told we couldn't because of limited availability. The woman on the phone had a little bit of an attitude.

But otherwise, I would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend the Sand 'n Sea Motel to others.
