“Many lodging choices at The Seahorse”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

After reading dozens of reviews about The Seahorse (yes, I usually start at the 5 and 1 dot ratings) it would of been helpful if more folks would have mentioned WHICH actual room number, or building they had stayed in....The staff were super nice....Luckily we were allowed to look at different options before deciding which to rent (with no reservations)....We stayed in cabin/duplex #105...I wouldn't say it was super or the worse experience for us...Just average..I didn't feel duped as it was only $83 a night...

We sure were glad we had a separate bedroom, duplex unit, joined together by a couple of garages. No attached neighbors ....Much quieter....Also easier as we have a rambunctious puppy...I would say the place is "Pet Friendly" but the area around the motel is not....Except the 135 steps down and up to the beach below....My husband and puppy took these steps numerous times on our stay with no problem....

My number one issue with older lodging is the smelly, nasty carpeting...They just don't shampoo them often enough..I say "Tear them out or keep them clean"...At the beach, or in a forest setting this needs to be done more often and it is not! Enough said!

We enjoyed our "kitchenette" unit with real ceramic plates, bowls, etc...real glassware and silverware for our use...A table and 2 chairs for take-out dinners...Had to unplug the Apartment size frig. though as it was just too noisy...We just used our cooler instead...Shower was standing unit, no tub..Bathroom was small but functional.....

Bed was comfy, linens, towels, etc. were fine....We also very much enjoyed our wood burning stove as its chilly and foggy on the coast...We found the wood pile ourselves behind a nearby garage, do ask where this is as they leave you small kindling, and logs that are just too big.We went through dozens of medium sized pieces on our 2 night stay...

I was comfy here, but IF I didn't have a dog, or wanted to be near family also staying here, I would not have picked The Seahorse....It really was fine for two nights only, but lacks charm or ambiance....It is what it is....Old and tired, like most of the lodging options I saw in Lincoln City..

We took a week driving/RV'ing almost the entire Oregon Coast from south to north, and there were many charming towns to spend time in....Lincoln City would not be my choice as my next "destination vacation spot".....It was more of a "functional" town......

When the person on the second floor got up to go to the bathroom it sounded as if my Roomie was going. The walls were so thin the neighbors alarm clock sounded like it was in the room too! Scratchy blankets. Awful bedding and bed. Nice view but no screens on the window? Paid too much for way too little.

The location was perfect, the room spacious and clean, and the continental breakfast was great. My main comment, however, is about the staff - from the desk clerks to the cleaning ladies. They were friendly, smiled a lot, and accommodated our every need. We've stayed there before and will again.

This place is great! Centrally located, excellent ocean view rooms, pet friendly, continental breakfast, indoor pool, hottub with ocean view. We really enjoyed our stay here. Close to Newport, hiking, whale watching, and just a quiet small town feel with all of the ammenities.

Room Tip: Room 124 was the best!

My family and friends have been staying at the Sea Horse for many years. The staff has always been very friendly, personable and accommodating. The view is awesome, the pool and spa are great, and yes, there are many steps to get down to the beach right inbetween two of the Sea Horse's buildings, but it's the best beach entry in Lincoln City. You don't have to fight for parking and you don't run into vehicles on this part of the beach. The fact that they allow pets is a wonderful perk. This time we stayed in the newly rebuilt wing, on the fourth floor (yes, there is an elevator) which also had a glass-sided balcony. The rebuild is first class all the way! In reviews the "stairs to the beach" seem to be the worst thing people comment on...but just take your time and you'll be fine. It's a small sacrifice considering the staff, location, beautiful rooms, beautiful view and price.

Room Tip: Check out their website and you can see the location, furnishings and price of each room.

Very surprised at how big and clean our bedroom suite was. For the money, the stay was very pleasant. My son and his friend loved the pool, the service was friendly, and the view of the ocean was fantastic. Only 3 things were negative; 1. There are 133 stairs to walk down to get the the beach so if you have a heart condition or other health issue, forget about going onto the beach because the walk UP the stairs to get back to the hotel will be impossible. If we stay at this hotel, my husband will never be able to venture out onto the beach. 2. we could hear the people above us as if they were walking down our hall. 3. No balcony; I love to have coffee in the morning on the balcony, at the beach. The upstairs rooms have balconies but pets are not allowed in those units.

Room Tip: Pets not allowed in balcony units. Beds are comfortable. Decent water pressure in the shower.

The room had not AC or even a fan. It was 90 degrees in our room. Access to the beach was 300 stairs down with no lighting at dawn. Everyone who came to see the beach would turn around when they saw the stairs they would have to go down and up. Nice view but I came to spend time at the beach not the room I was in. Parking was tight and hard to find. Would not reccomend this place to anyone. Walls were paper thin you could hear everything going on in the next room. Make sure if you book a room the room above or next to you has no hot tub as your headboard will rattle from the noise.

Room Tip: Pick a room that is not next to a hot tub as you will hear the water running and your headboard will...
