This hotel and restaurant are definitely priced right. However cute the outside is , this is Not a luxury stop. This is a great town and most of the places to stay are in other beach towns. So this is a great addition to the area.
Nice place to stay - room wasn't large but it was just the two of us traveling to the Oregon coast. Nice meall that wasn't expensive. Great selection of beers on tap. Didn't play golf this time arpound but it sits right on the course.
Eclectic and recreational to boot. Great venue for weddings as are all MM’s and it sits right on the golf course. The rooms are cozy and everything is decorated as always in the McMenamin way with lots of history and art. There is a separate annex building too and a small pub called the Sandlot that’s at the end of the course of either the front or back nine.
We found the staff, particularly at the restaurant to display a "take it or leave it - that's the way we do things here" attitude. Unfortunately we were stuck eating here since all restaurants in Seaside were slammed. The hotel rooms lacked any way to keep our few few food items cold and no way to brew coffee, thereby requiring we waste food and wait until quite late in the morning for a cup. We'll never return.
This was our first time staying at a McMenamins hotel and I'm pretty sure my last. I saw the pictures before we reserved the room but until you actually stay in the hotel you don't really realize how dark the wood is and how "heavy" the rooms are. The morning of our stay we received a call from the hotel advising they had had a "maintenance: issue and was unable to rent the room we originally reserved - but they had a comparable room in the Annex. We were assured it was a large room with a view of the golf course. They did comp us breakfast for the trouble. Check-in took almost 25 minutes. The couple in front of us was having an issue and eventually a manager was called to assist. Normally this wouldn't be an issue but the check-in "booth" was at the front door with little space for people to stand and for other guests to move around you. The issue I had was they failed to mention that in order to see the golf course I had to stand on my tippy toes and lean over a table and chair set and look through one of the smallest windows I've had at a hotel. Also the bed was soooo hard I could not get comfortable. If you stay in the annex ask for the first floor - the windows are much bigger and open more than 3 inches. Also there are no coffee makers in the room - they do set out self serve coffee but not until 8 am (and the restaurant is closed until then also). Luckily for us early risers they did set it out at 7 the Monday we were there saving us a trip to Seaside before breakfast.…
