“Quiet Retreat By The Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

My wife and I stayed at Sailor Jack for two nights during the week as an anniversary celebration. I was a little leery about staying here because the price was so incredibly reasonable for an oceanfront motel, but we were pleasantly surprised. This is a quiet oceanfront motel tucked away at the end of a dead end street. The view was fantastic from our second floor room. It looks like the rooms were recently updated with new furnishings, etc. and they were very clean. There were a few nicks here and there in the walls and the paint on the doors wasn't quite complete, but this wasn't anything major. The wi-fi worked perfectly, which is a plus to us. Staff was extremely friendly. Our only complaint was that the bed was exremely hard, but maybe some people like that. We were on the second floor, but next time will probably request third floor because you can hear people walking around above you. We will definately be staying here again.

Room Tip: If you don't want to hear walking above you, request a third floor room. if you don't mind...

This was third or fourth time we've stayed here and each time we've been impressed with the property. The motel is located right above the beach with a really good view of the ocean and stairs right down the the beach. The rooms are clean and have a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. We've always been here midweek during the shoulder season and the prices have been great - a really good value.

Sailor Jack was extremely helpful in returning a camera we had left behind in our room. Via email and phone, their staff arranged to have it shipped back to us.
The motel is in a great location - right on the beach. It was lovely to wake up and watch the surf steps from our patio door. The fireplace and jacuzzi tub are very nice. My only advice would be to avoid the rooms on the ground floor where cars park. Our door didn't shut solidly, and both cold air and outside noises filtered in easily. Other than that, we loved our stay!

My fiance and I stayed here last week and just the very fact that we are writing this review (our first ever) proves how impressed we were with the service. The view was excellent, the room very clean and the staff was very friendly.

We were hesitant about all the negative reviews, but we will be back!
Manager's were wonderfully nice! All those negative reviews on them, shame on you! The room was clean, didn't smell like smoke or dogs like previously stated. The bed was so comfortable and clean! The view from the balcony was beautiful and you can't beat the price for an oceanfront room!
This was a our first stay here, but I think we have found our new favorite place in Lincoln City!

My husband and I came to celebrate our two year Wedding Anniversary this weekend and it was terrific weather at a terrific hotel. I stayed at this hotel years ago and its so much better now. Rooms have been updated and no longer smells of stale smoke. Everything is clean and nice. Our view was wonderful, right on the ocean. Bed was a little stiff, but nothing will compare to your own bed anyway. The hotel service was friendly and housekeeping did well. The price was good for our three night stay. I will definitely be booking another weekend!

We stayed a night here during mid week. Very quite. The hotel is simple. Nothing super fancy. We had a bottom floor room with a jacuzzi tub and a deck. The hotel is old but does have updated room. We really enjoyed the amazing views of the ocean and the fact that we could be on the beach in less then a minute. For this middle class couple we were happy with the hotel. Staff were very nice and helpful. Room were pretty clean. Nothing really stood out that I didn't like. I informed the manager of a couple little things that need done. He thanked me for the info and assured me they were working on fixing the little things. We will be back
