“Cozy beachfront cottages”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2011

Just returned from a weekend at the Twin Rocks motel. My friend and I stayed in one of the beachfront cottages, number 3. It had a nice size living room, a full kitchen with eating area, and 2 bedrooms, one on either side of the bathroom. The cottage has killer views of the ocean in the distance from the living room and eating area/kitchen. Ours had a wood burning fireplace (they give you free wood), but we couldn't get a fire started the first night because the chimney leaked! The second night, it was clear skies, and we got a great fire roaring. I think one of the other cottages has a gas fireplace for people who want a sure thing. The cottages are reached by a quiet road, and the complex is next to houses, not other motels, so the property is very quiet. I found it beautiful, comfortable, and relaxing. For a wonderful restaurant, go north to Wheeler (15 or 20 minute drive) and eat at the Rising Star Cafe.

This beach motel is comprised of cottages. We stayed in cottage 2, which has one bath and two bedrooms, a living area with a fireplace and kitchen, as well as a view of the ocean. The beachfront view to the rocks is great, and the ability to walk right onto the beach was excellent. This motel is pet-friendly, and I thought it was kept very clean, and people seemed to be respectful and they picked up after their animals. The kitchen has everything you could want to make a meal on your beach vacation, and there were TVs in the living area and both the bedrooms.

Twin Rock Motel is a classical Oregon coast "motel' of the old school; really a compound of little cottages. The good thing here is that the cottages are renovated and kept in good condition.

The kitchen was pretty well equipped. While not a "gourmet kitchen" is was more than adequate for making "beach vacation" meals.

The view is great; Twin Rocks stand proud a little ways out to sea.

You can bring your dog. You can bring your kids. Actually a lot of people do book the "motel" for week long vacations ... and according to the people I spoke to who were doing it, were quite happy.

As for the road leading to the Twin Rocks Motel, it is bumpy. But the road is short. I think it's kind of charming (and the bumps tend to slow people down).

Found this hotel when I went to Google and typed in "Hotels - Rockaway Beach, OR". These are cottages on the oceanfront. The first 3 that are shown on the website are the newest and of course, nicest. Try to get one of them if possible! We were in Cottage #4 and it was definitely clean, but the yard in front of our cottage was filled with huge size amounts of dog poop! There are signs asking you to remove your dog's poop, but apparently some people don't think THEIR dogs are included!

There is a nice porch with 4 chairs and a grill and you can hear the sound of the surf while cooking out!

It is the tiniest bathroom you can imagine, but the shower is actually okay. BRING A HAIRDRYER because there is not one furnished. The kitchen is fully equipped, even a tiny dishwasher. The living room has a new HDTV mounted on the wall; each bedroom has a small t.v. that is on a shelf mounted high on the wall. These are not HDTV's, just old 13" or so t.v.'s.

I guess our stay was okay for one night; do not know that I would recommend it or not........it IS close to the beach though! Minnehaha Dr. is off Hwy 101 and in dire need of serious repairs! Drive very slowly on this street, folks!

  • Liked — Closeness to beach
