“Fantastic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We rented the family suite, which sleeps 8. The room had two separate bedrooms, one with a queen bed and full bathroom, and the other with two queen beds, fireplace and additional full bath. There was also a full kitchen and full living room with another fireplace. There is a balcony that overlooks the ocean. Truly a fantastic room! Very clean and updated, and the indoor pool and jacuzzi were right next door! My family and I had a great time and there was plenty of space for everyone!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

This has been our third trip staying at the Sea Horse and My wife and I are completely satisified with the accomodations. The room is clean,the view is great and the staff have always been very helpful and courteous. The one drawback is that the walk down the 135 steps to the beach is difficult for my wife. Love being on the first floor and not having to climb steps to the upstairs room. The rooms are spacious enough for myself and wife. Would like to see screens put on so we could have the windows open farther during the night. Beautiful little community close to Depoe Bay and Newport. Every year the anticipation of getting to the motel and the coast is almost unberable. Thanks for the oppertunity to let me write a review on your motel.

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.
