We decided on a Friday morning to spend the weekend at the D river wayside enjoying the surf to escape a Portland heat wave. We knew we were booking at a dated, run-down place, but were willing to overlook a lot for a good location, ocean view and short-notice availability on a busy weekend. That said, we would have gone home Saturday evening if we hadn't found another place that'd had a cancellation because there was no way we'd have stayed here a second night! The room was, in a word, grubby. Not just dated, but grimy. Unclean and greasy. The guest services binder was literally sticky, an even layer of grubby dirt that left a tangible film of yuck on my hands. The chair upholstery felt dirty and the carpet seemed so soiled that I didn't feel comfortable going barefoot in our room. The internet was so slow as to be unusable and kept booting us offline, we actually had a stronger signal from the hotel across Hwy 101 (too bad we didn't have their password!) And our "big balcony" had more view of the multi-patched rooftop of the stores in front of the place than it did of the surf.
The hot tub, at least, seemed clean and well-kept, in a room with a small balcony for fresh air. Tip for front desk personnel: To call this a "14-man jacuzzi" makes you seem like an ignoramus. The ROOM it's in might hold 14 people, if two were in the shower and two on the balcony. Maybe. The tub itself could be called a 4-man tub although it seemed pretty full with my husband, myself and one other man who also thought it was laughable to say it was a 14-man tub.
I would not consider staying here again. Especially at $140 a night!! What a dump. At least the staff were friendly and accommodating. They deserve jobs at a nicer place.
