Older and quaint setting perfect with fishing boats and restaurants near by. The room was clean but the sign said Non Smoking room but you could tell previous tenants smoked in the bathroom. Had to run the bathroom fan and keep the front door and windows open for a while to air it out. You could tell the hotel was... More

Mgr Jan would not give me a pet room because I had booked with Booking.com. Had to cancel reservation and rebook with her to get a pet room. Major hassle and NOT worth it. This place is old and smells like mold. Don't stay here.

On our road trip along the coast (SF to Seattle), tying to decide between an overnight at Coos Bay (Motel 6) and Charleston. Comments on Captain John's were somewhat 50/50, but to be honest have very minor comments to make. Yes, no AC, but i found room fine and whilst not airy, certainly not stale. No coffee machine which was... More

This motel is in a very convenient location if you want to be near Sunset Bay, Simpson's Reef and Cape Arago. It is located close near the docks and Marine Biology Center, with a soothing distant sound of a foghorn and dock bells, softly lulling us to sleep. Beyond the convenience, it was surprisingly cheap ($65 a night for 2... More

We enjoyed our respite. The motel was ok. It was no more or less than what you expected at those rates. I booked it Expedia/hotels.com. Would not do that again as we had to leave early due to illness, and because we did not book directly thru the motel, we were not allowed a refund, so we paid for not... More

The room smell so bad and no A/C, I could not breath.Don't stay here if you are sensitive. No wonder I have seen a few travelers stay outside their rooms to get the fresh air. My friend regretted to make our reservation to us all 12.@@@@@@@@@@@@@

This motel is family owned and operated. Great rates, right next to the docks, great place to eat dinner right next door. Bathroom had some black mold in the upper part of shower, other than that clean room. Micro and mini fridge in room as well. Quiet area.

We picked this place based on recommendation by our waiter in the area we were in. I read some reviews and some were correct about the smell. We walked in and right away the moldy smell blew me away however, judging by where we were I can understand that, however upon entering our room the smell was there too(2nd floor)... More
