We are a couple who became tired of big chain hotels. We started exploring small, private motels as they are more fun. Previous night we stayed in a motel which was a big disappointment but this little motel is very nice. Super clean. It is a pleasure to enter a room and smell the clean sheets. The owners are on...

The Southsider Motel was very clean an neat. I felt quite comfortable there. The room was smallish but nice. I would recommend this motel. Because it is sensibly priced, I was able to stay several nights.

Excellent quaint motel! Extremely clean, probably the cleanest room I've ever stayed in! Owners are very friendly and helpful, highly recommend this to travelors of all kinds, due to the various types of rooms available, but book ahead because they fill up fast w repeat business! Great motel at extremely affordable prices!

For a budget Motel, this is my Coos Bay go-to when I travel on business.The rooms are basic, but quite homey, with TV, alarm clock, small fridge, coffee maker and microwave in the room, it's quite like a little studio apartment. You absolutely cannot beat the rates here. I do concur with Graham C who posted previously that traffic noise... More

I have stayed in many hotels and motels lately as I've traveled around the NW, and this place is one of them. While I feel for the owners, the location is right at the end off Hwy 101 as it leaves Coos Bay, and as such gets alot of early morning traffic. Having earplugs and possibly night mask will help....

the room was clean, but small. Desk staff was not very nice and very rude to a couple trying to check in before us (he was black and she was white). Cheap place to stay when on a budget, but right on 101 and kind of noisy. Parking lot is small and a bit dangerous to manuever.

After driving from Bend yesterday,we were tired and ready to stop for the night. This was a very clean and quiet place to stay, and brought back fond memories of traveling when I was a kid. The price was right, and the proprietor was very pleasant,even though we showed up after 10pm.

The owner-operator should retire because he clearly hates his job. I pre-booked the room and filled out the paperwork. He then literally slammed the booking window in my face when he saw my boyfriend smoking in our car. He was paranoid about him smoking inside. The rooms are probably fine, but I urge you not to book here because he... More

The motel room was the cleanest place I've stayed at in years. The owner is pretty suspicious of people smoking in the all non-smoking rooms, but I suppose he's had bad experiences. He is nice, tho', and works hard to keep the motel in good shape. There is a bit of road noise, but you won't notice it as the... More
