First time staying at Ship Ashore. Stayed in the Jacuzzi unit. The view from the room was awesome, the bed was very comfortable, it was very quiet and the Jacuzzi was so relaxing. However, there really needs to be some serious updating. Rooms need maintenance attention and some TLC. Restaurant was overpriced for the quality of food. Service was awesome... More

A nice room. Beds and carpet were clean. The jacuzzi tub takes a long time to fill, like 45 min. The tubs have a lot of cracking in the bottom of them. Last time I used their jacuzzi I got a bad infection. The lobby needs a lot of cosmetic work. Shingles falling off the side and roof. Their continental... More

Most of the rooms at Ship Ashore have stunning West-facing ocean views and are located only 50 yards from the lapping waves. The views are stunning, however Friday night the ocean got rough and the nice waves started pounding the shore and became quite loud. Everything else was quite acceptable with a nice clean room and friendly helpful staff.

This place has a beautiful view and has such great potential, but that is all i can say positive. Dirty and dingy room, mass amount of bird poo all over walkways, algae and moss growing and hanging from roof, stains on furniture, curtains filthy and did not work properly, screen door had no handle and would not stay on tracks....

Rented house #260 for three nights. Had a great view of the Smith River and ocean. Would recommend bringing a pair of binoculars to view all the wildlife. Lots of seals, pelicans, eagles, and numerous ducks to view laying along the shore of the river. The house was clean and roomy, with comfortable beds. The price in the off season... More

Decided to give the hotel a try. At first it appeared to be a clean room until we inspected the mattress the next morning and found runny brown poop stains on it. Mattress should be thrown out. Bed was very uncomfortable, rooms need serious updating. This place needs Serious WORK

Situated on the famous Smith river mouth and the Pacific ocean, the views are uncanny, teeming with all sorts of birds and wildlife, the motel is dated but very clean and priced right. Newer units are available for a few bucks more, ASK!!! Restaurant is only open for dinner, motel serves light breakfast spread.
