Sharp room on second floor with ocean view, gas fireplace, kitchenette, table, queen bed -- all I needed for a writing retreat -- and at a very reasonable price. Also near the cool San Dune Pub (live music on weekends) and other restaurants.

Had a wonderful ocean view room with four huge, located right on the street about the lobby. The room was a little smelly but it was clean. It had a great kitchenette and the bathroom was comfortable.

We've come here for over 7 years and really enjoy being able to watch the waves and the sunsets, and cook our meals. It's not fancy, but the view is unbeatable. There's been a much needed renovation recently but we're mixed on the wood vinyl flooring. Sure, it's practical, but it's really loud (no area rugs) and floor gets really...

For a very reasonable price we were able to have a kitchen unit, main room with queen bed and a separate bedroom Our room was located across the street from the entrance to the beach.. Even though the building was almost full, the noise level from other rooms was very low. The staff accommodated all our requests. It is close...

We were so cozy sitting in front of the warm gas fireplace...nibbling appetizers (love that little kitchen) and sipping wine....We drove to Cannon Beach for a dinner...

During winters, the wind is blowing, tide is up, and the view is great. Pretty easy to get a good night's sleep here. I will admit that the building and furnishings are dated, but one has to consider that if both were modern, the price to stay would multiply instantly. It reminds me most of a 1960s semi-motorcourt motel, staff...

We've stayed here once before and may again but it is at best an average motel. However in the off-season the rate allows us to have an ocean view and we do like that. The main building is old and though I know work is done to maintain it, it shows its age: the bed spread is brown, the adequate...

We visited in April and will be returning in 2017. Staff is amazing and exceptionally helpful, and the rooms are small but perfectly adequate for a couple who is outdoorsy and will spend very little time in them. Comfy beds, perfect sized kitchenette, clean bathrooms, and a dining area. We loved it! Room service is great, even with all the...

Clean, check-in and -out smooth, enjoyed the fireplaces in our 2 rooms; had a nice small kitchen; would recommend you bring flat-bottomed coffee filters if, like us, you bring your own ground coffee for the little coffee-maker (they provide packets of coffee in a filterpack). Enjoyed the view, bathroom was nice, bed comfy. Was stormy all night and we enjoyed...
