When we first drove up to the inn, we wondered if maybe we'd made a wrong turn, as we were on a gravel road with a couple of older, unkempt looking properties there. But sure enough, hidden away a short distance further, was the inn. So it's kind of tucked away from the road, which actually adds to the peacefulness of it all. We checked into the Castle Rock Suite, their largest (and most expensive!) room, and were surprised at how different it was from the website photos. I don't want to pick it apart too much, but I'll just say that a lack of attention to detail exists, and for $489 a night, I was taken aback by that. No tissues in the tissue holder, an outdated fire extinguisher, a couple burned out bulbs, a fridge that wouldn't stay closed because the gasket fell off every time you opened it, and a hodgepodge of furniture that didn't match in the living area. So we felt that it's certainly been neglected for a while and could use some TLC. Okay, I guess I am picking it apart. Again, I personally expect more for a fifteen-hundred dollar 3 night stay. The next morning, after breakfast and before we headed into Cannon Beach, we placed the "Please make up our room" sign on the door. The room was never touched. The next day however, they did make the bed and replenish our towels. As for breakfast, we found it to be very good and wonderfully presented. The menu was a bit different each day, with dishes such as Eggs Benedict, Cinnamon Swirl French Toast, eggs prepared any way you like, etc. Well prepared and sufficient portions. The evening wine and cheese plate was equally nice. (I have included several photos of the inn and the food). The staff was very pleasant and cordial. Their hours are very limited however so if you need anything, be sure to get their attention while they are on the grounds. In summation I would say that it is a very peaceful and pleasant place to stay, although quite expensive, and some much needed attention to detail would make it a better value for the prices charged.…
We stayed for three nights in the Tuscan room. It’s in the basement and has one tiny window but a door to the outside (nice during a pandemic). Mattress was uncomfortable (too soft and bouncy). Housekeeping was by request only via door tag. Only staff we saw were the breakfast servers and one didn’t wear a mask - just a shield. Service was okay, coffee was weak, tea brands were inconsistent. Food was decent. Overall an impersonal experience and an unusual space and not worth the price. We paid less to stay at the Ritz-Carlton.
We booked the Castle Rock Suite and the Parisian Room for two couples. We didn’t have any housekeeping during our visit and had a hard time trying to communicate with anyone. The Suite is adjacent to the kitchen or office and we could hear phones ringing and papers rustling all afternoon and early evening from a locked door off the main living area. The suite is poorly laid out and a tremendous waste of space. Simple amenities like tissues were not in the rooms. Overall, it was a strange experience and not worth the value for the high rates we paid. Feels a bit dated and probably wouldn’t choose again.
Spent two nights with husband at this immaculate upscale accommodation. Stayed in extremely spacious Heather room. Breakfast each morning was outstanding presentation of several different choices. Staff delightful and fellow guests (wide range of ages) friendly even with covid precautions.
The Arch Cape Inn is a delightful place. Our room was cozy and comfortable. The breakfast each day was amazing! The service was excellent! We enjoyed the wine and cheese served each afternoon. The location makes it easy to drive to Cannon Beach and also into Manzanita.
