This is a PERFECT spot if you are looking to escape somewhere quiet and enjoy the beauty of the ocean. It is a jewel and so nice to find a small place that is not overly commercial and pricey. It's true the rooms are average, but they are certainly adequate, and do have their own charm. The bed was very comfy and the room was clean. Since there was a coffee maker, somehow we expected that there would also be coffee, cream, etc. The manager gratiously did provide them when we asked. He was very helpful in recommending local excursions. The room smelled musty upon arrival, but that disappeared after we aired out the room. We had a delicious fresh fish dinner at "Griff's", on the sea port below. One could walk there, although the walk back up hill might be difficult! All in all, if you want an AFFORDABLE place to stay, with a 100 % GUARANTEE of an ocean view, and don't expect a 5 star resort with all the bells and whistles, I would definitely recommend the Castaway very highly. The ocean view is breathtaking, and we spent our two evenings on a bench overlooking the ocean, watching the sunset. By the way, we were entertained the second evening by a whale(s), playing, spouting away and diving, for about 3 hours. Even in June! This was the highlight of a two week tour of Oregon!!!!
