The Hotel Manager was great. The beach is an easy walk from the hotel. It was quiet. Non smoking rooms. Grab and go brown bag breakfast that includes fruit cocktail. This hotel is filthy dirty. Pacific Reef unfortunately as a first time guest wasn’t for me.I will not return.
We have been staying at the Pacific Reef Hotel for several years, now. We’ve ALWAYS enjoyed our stay - especially in the ‘condo’ rooms, upstairs with a view of the ocean and a balcony so you can watch the light show! We recently stayed at the hotel (this month) AND were disappointed that the carpet was very stained and ‘old’. Time to put in new carpets! Prices are high in Summer but Pacific Reef is a great place to stay! 3 ‘stars’ for the VERY dirty carpet! ;-(
Dirtiest carpet we've ever seen, and we've seen lots of hotel rooms in our many years of travel. Visiting with housekeeping, she said that she wouldn't walk on the carpeted floors barefoot. I glanced into other ocean front 2nd floor rooms, and all the carpets were in the same condition. Husband said it would be hard to find a 6" square anywhere in our room that wasn't badly stained and just plain dirty. It was like there just wasn't care given to the room quality in general. The bathroom corners were dirty, the bedside lamp had a short and sort of worked, sometimes, and the one blanket had long frayed stringy edges (16" long plus). No, we wouldn't stay here again.
Was expecting a lot more from this property but when you book an Economy (not my definition based on rate) room that is what you get. Didn’t feel like my business was valued when checking in, in fact surprised did not have to show ID or credit card when I checked in and same front desk attitude when checking out. This property the minute you make reservation charges your credit card so be prepared to pay in advance for the stay. Nicest thing about Economy room is you can park in front of room. Did on my own find path down to beach, which was nice. Grab and Go breakfast in morning. I’m sure there are a lot of returning guests who really like Pacific Reef unfortunately as a first time guest wasn’t for me.
Nice location. Could see the & hear the ocean. Room clean & simple. Bed comfy. Nightly light show & short film are a treat. Lots of area below for quick potty runs for dogs. Staff were kind & helpful.
Could you tell me what kind of sheets were on the beds? Softest sheets I ever slept on need to know so I can buy some. Had a wonderful time with my son and great grandchildren. Very clean rooms, polite employees. Loved the lights.
The view was nice. Bed was comfortable and room was clean. I was just bummed the room was closed up all day so when I got there, it was extremely warm and did not cool down at night. Movie showed some cool places in Oregon, too. Thought the light show would be a bit more though.
We really enjoyed our stay. Location is wonderful! This hotel provides some nice extra touches that shows they really are making an extra effort to make your visit the best. The light show is fun. In room Starbucks coffee. Clean bedding with comfortable bed. We had a deluxe ocean view room. Has nice chairs on the patio with beautiful views. Nice hot tub. Grounds are beautiful with flowers, grass, Koi pond and some nice beachy touches. Truly a dog friendly hotel. The hotel is a bit dated. The only downfalls I experienced is the floor was not mopped between visitors and we were supposed to have one handicapped room. We were told that all rooms on the first floor are handicapped rooms. We did have access to the room but that’s where handicap access stopped. The bathroom was too small to negotiate a wheelchair. There were no grab bars for toilet area. The bathroom had a tub with normal grab bars but no access for handicap person. Shower with low sides and shower chair would make more sense. Handicap person had no access to patio because there is a drop off with no ramp. Bed was high and a bit hard for handicap person to get in and out. Overall was a great stay!…
This is a simple, quiet and conveniently located hotel within 3 minute walk from the ocean. The room was clean, our bed was comfortable, water pressure great. Morning coffee in the lobby was very tasty. Would stay here again when in town.
We had a second story room with balcony for one night. It was nice to sit back and watch the waves come in. The "Light Show" was more of a short movie about the area, but it was fun to watch. Breakfast consists presently of a "grab and go" back because of covid. The only thing I can ding them on is the size of the bathroom--kinda small.
