“Great access to the Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

I stayed at the Quinault with my husband and two children who are 11 and 9. We were also there with 6 other family members, all adults. We had an adjoining room, which my children loved because it gave them easy access to Nana and Papa.
The hotel stands alone, with no other hotels or businesses around it. This gave it a certain feeling of isolation, which I enjoy when I'm on a beach vacation. The outside of the hotel and the grounds are very well maintained. There is nothing but a grassy area between the hotel and the beach, with a boardwalk running between the two. The beach was nice, with minimal people. Every once in a while a vehicle or a group of horses would go by (yes, you can drive on the beach in Ocean Shores).
The ground floor of the hotel smells very much like smoke, as this is where the casino is, but we had non smoking rooms and they didn't smell like smoke at all. We had ocean front rooms, with a fabulous view of the ocean and a large floor to ceiling window with which to enjoy it. There were frequently deer in the grassy area between the hotel and the beach and it was nice to watch the 4 baby fawns we saw jump around and play. The rooms were well appointed, but getting a bit worn looking with bumps and scrapes here and there. The carpet was also a bit stained and worn looking, but its my understanding that the hotel is being updated, and the whole 4th floor is done. We were on the 3rd floor. The beds were comfortable enough. The sheets were clean, the bedskirt was not. The mattress could be replaced with something that has a bit more support, but I still slept just fine.
My children enjoyed the pool. The area is clean and well maintained. However, my husband said the bottom was very rough and he actually got a bad scrape on his toe that required several band-aids, so you might want to watch out for that. It didn't seem to bother my kids though.
We ate dinner and several breakfasts at Emily's restaurant. The dinner menu was good, but pricey. The breakfast was good.
The casino was smaller than I expected, but had a good variety of slot machines. I won about $450, but 4 other adults I was with who gambled all lost money.
The town of Ocean Shores is small and rather outdated and overall kind of shabby. There are several things to do for a family with kids that include go-karts, a small, outdated arcade, mini golf, bumper cars, pedal kart rentals, modpeds, and of course there is the beach.
Overall, I liked the hotel and I enjoyed my stay. My whole family had a good time. From what I saw, the Quinault looked like the best place to stay in Ocean Shores if you don't mind the casino (some people are turned off by that). It was private and the beach was wonderful. I would stay there again with a large group of family like we did this time, but I probably wouldn't stay there when its just my husband, myself, and our two kids.

Room Tip: In my opinion, its worth it to get an ocean front room.

We stayed two nights and cannot say anything but GREAT job management for running such a great hotel and resort!!! The rooms are a great layout, separate living area from the bed with a fireplace dividing the two spaces. Beds are SUPER comfortable. Fromt the valet staff to the front desk staff, to all 3 eating establishments, the staff are very friendly and courteous. EXCELLENT customer service!!!!

The best in Ocean Shores!!!

We stayed here for the night and it was great! As you walk in you pass the casino opening , it had a slight smoky smell but not as smoky as I had imagined after reading a previous post. You are coming to a casino if you mind smoke a casino isn't the place for you. The view was great and the room was beautiful! I loved the electric fireplace and you can open the window to hear the waves. Our kids were w us. The bummer was we came for crab dinner but you have to be 21 to enter that part of the hotel. The pool closes at 9. Very limited for kids. My dad chose this place for us and paid so we thought we check it out lol. I will definitely stay here again!!!

We had a wonderful stay at Quinault. Vey vice room, quality amenities, great ocean view & cozy fireplace. The staff bent over backwards to be accommodating and I was able to forget my handicap during our whole visit. I didn't notice excess smoke in the lobby or casino area and found Emily's By The Sea Restaurant to have outstanding food. Love valet service and plan on going there as frequent as possible. I even came home with more than I took...the gaming was fantastic! Ka-ching!!!

The casino is fun (even though I didn't win) and the restaurant is okay, but the best part of this hotel is the view. The hotel is pretty much on the beach and the view of wide sandy shores and small waves is so relaxing.

There are also fireplaces in the rooms, so the combination of the fireplace and beach view is just what a vacation should be.

Thank you for your comments! We must agree - there is no better view than the lapping of the waves on the shore! Come back and visit again soon!

Our last stay at a Resort Casino was at the lovely Northern Quest in Spokane so perhaps we've been spoiled, but the smoke smell in the lobby assaults you as soon as you walk through the doors at the Quinault. If smoke bothers you, read no further and look else where for lodging. The casino area is adjacent to the lobby and we were unable to leave the odor until we reached our third floor room or in the restaurant. We made a quick walk through the casino and did not see any smoke-free gambling area.
We had booked the midweek package of two nights for $149, plus extra for an ocean view room, plus we were going to stay an additional day.
Our room was on the third floor, and I'm hoping they plan renovation there, now that the fourth floor is complete. This would explain the very stained, dirty carpet and lack of maintenance in the room. The bathroom is nice, with two sinks and a stool for the vanity. I see another reviewer mentioned the double soap holders in the tub/shower area. I thought this was a nice touch, making it easier to reach standing or sitting. However, the reviewer was right about the soap, and there are not towel bars or hooks near the sinks to hang your towels. Beware if you are 6 ft tall, my husband hit his head on the curved shower curtain rod, but did appreciate that the shower head was at a good level for him.
There was a gas fireplace in the room, but placed where it is useless. It blocks the view of the ocean from the bed, and since it is located at the foot of the bed, on the floor, you can't even enjoy watching the fire. Removal of the fireplace, or putting it on another wall would much improve the layout.
We cancelled our third night after we found a lovely smoke-free establishment closer to the water.

Thank you so much for your review! We appreciate your candid comments. I'm sorry to hear that the smoke was bothersome. We do have an extensive filtration system that clears the air of the smoke, but during heavy traffic periods, it may be more pervasive than usual. I hope that you enjoyed your visit to Ocean Shores, nonetheless, and we look forward to serving you again soon!

We had booked a 4th floor Non Ocean view room for Memorial Day weekend. Showed up at the hotel around 3:30 Friday and were told by the valet our room was not ready and check in time was 4:00, I thought that a bit odd since I’m sure the hotel was not very full on the previous night. We took a walk and went back to the front desk at 4 and were told that the 4th floor just reopened after renovation and we would be the first ones up there.

When we got on the elevator there were still notices that the 4th floor was closed. Once we got up there the new carpet smell was apparent, and maintenance people were busy fixing light fixtures and gluing the room numbers on the wall. The room was nice, with new wallpaper, bedding, pillow top mattress, furniture, the tile in the bathroom and double sink granite vanity I believe were also new. 42” flat screen, Keurig Coffee maker, small microwave, and fridge.

There was one thing I found odd about the bathtub/shower. There were 2 soap dishes mounted on the center of the bathtub wall, one at 2 feet and one at about 4 feet. Since they stuck out so far every time I took a shower I would bang my arm/knee against one or both of them. And the odd thing was there was never any bath soap left in the room. We got shower gel and hand soap on the vanity, but no bath soap to go in the strangely positioned soap dishes.

My wife did some sort of body scrub/massage treatment and really liked it. She is a bit of a spa snob, so I believe the spa must be pretty nice.

The smoke in the Casino, front desk, bar was pretty heavy the first day but seemed lighter the other 3 days. Since it is a Casino hotel the restaurant had several good deals, we had the omelet bar for breakfast on Sunday, and it was only $4. I think basically the casino supplements the price of rooms and food. Overall I thought it was a good value, and we will stay there again when we go to Ocean Shores.

Thank you for your review - and for being one of the first guests to stay in our newly renovated Fourth Floor rooms! We were, indeed, just opening them the day that you arrived, and apologize for any inconvenience. We appreciate you taking the time to let us know about your stay, and look forward to serving you again soon!
