“well maintained, well prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

We have stayed at this motel in early July 2014. This place is dated but really well maintained. You can tell that they take good care of this motel. It is located on the beach and view from our room was magnificent. TV in our room was made by Vizio - probably 32" LCD if not smaller. There are 32 channels (including HBO; 2 or 3 channels would not play). TV has 2 HDMI inputs so you can hook up your tablet etc. and watch movies, play games etc. There was also DVD player with separate remote.
Motel is located approx. 5 km from the center of Lincoln City. You will find all you need there. I would recommend J's Fish and Chips - really good.
Water in the ocean is cold here in July - we have been told the best water temperature is in late August - early September.

The only issue we had staying in a King room with a fireplace was the bed was very uncomfortable for me. Was fine for my husband but it was just to hard for me. We purchased a twin air mattress and I slept fine that way. We have stayed here before without issues and love the closeness of the beach and few steps down to it.

My wife and I have stayed here several times over the last few years. We have stayed in several motels in this city and many are sub par but we found the Sandcastle to be the very best.
The rooms are clean and well furnished. Room service is excellent. The location is steps from the beach and it is away from the downtown area. There is a no smoking policy and no pets which is really great. This motel is an indication of good ownership and pride in their facility.
The Manager, Joe, does an excellent job.

Room Tip: Third floor is great but be prepared to go up stairs.

We found this place thru GroupOn. Even without the discount, prices are reasonable. It's not fancy, but the room is clean and comfortable, beachfront balcony, indoor pool and hot tub, walk to NelScott for breakfast. We've already booked a return trip.

Room Tip: No elevator, so if you don't want to carry your stuff up, don't book a 2nd or 3rd floor room...

This hotel is right on the beach with a spectacular view, and that is what we wanted.This is an older place, but it was clean and comfortable. We had a 3rd floor room with fireplace and small balcony. We felt very confortable leaving the patio door open to the ocean sounds and breezes. Perfect!

Room Tip: Quiet. No elevator so you climb the stairs. No complimentary breakfast but lots of places to eat. F...

Visited Lincoln City last month and stayed at the Sandcastle. The location is amazing. Ocean front, quiet, peaceful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. I spent hours in the tide pools. I will return

Room Tip: All rooms oceanfront. You can't go wrong!
