Our second visit to this property, stayed above office in room 127, best room available for ocean view, large picture windows and very spacious! Not fancy but just perfect for watching the ocean waves,and the people and dogs on the beach. Delightful small towne vibe, good pub, small markets and two good coffee shops! All you need for a few...

We loved the motel and the town of Manzanita - very quaint and quiet - unlike towns to the north. The motel is right across from the beach so you can see and hear the ocean from just about anywhere. Pretty basic rooms but clean and nice.

Stayed for two nights in one of the downstairs units at the "Budd" building. Room was generally clean and well-equipped. There were two beds in this family unit and one of the beds were quite comfortable and the other (in the living room) was not at all. Nice little patio to sit out on, watch the ocean, and have snacks.... More

I have been trying for the last three days to contact this motel to make reservations. The 1-800 number is not answered (I finally started keeping a tally - 27 calls, minimum of 12 rings each time). I also sent an email to the front desk email listed on the website with no response. I think I'm taking my business... More

My 2nd floor room had great views of the ocean--from the deck and from the bed!!. The beach is easily accessible (just walk across a frontage road) and uncrowded. Manzanita is a small very dog friendly town. Low key and relaxing. I was doing a coastal road trip with my dog--I explored Cannon Beach, but was happy I choose Manzanita... More

The way furniture was arranged, the room was small to get around. Didn't like coffee provided or that they did not have bar soap or hair conditioner. So bring your own. There was no air conditioner. 2nd day was a bit warm and didn't want to leave the ground level window open all night.

Quaint little motel. Traveling & saw reviews. Everything is super clean, great views & easy access to beach. Nice pool, clean rooms, very reasonably priced. Stayed here after visiting Tillamook Cheese Factory. Beds-mattresses are excellent. Outdoor patio chairs could be replaced w/sturdy ones.

My spouse and I came for a 5 day stay to close out our summer travel. We've stayed here many times. It's a low key beach motel with a great oceanfront location. The views are spectacular and the local restaurants are satisfying. Local grocers can help you fill in for grub. It's easy access for handicapped folks and the kitchen... More

Really great place to stay. Great value for the money. Partial Ocean View better than advertised. Great help at the front desk. Very friendly cleaning staff. I felt very welcomed and relaxed. Simply a magical 2 day stay.

Hotel is clean with all amenities needed. Barebones in some respects but perfectly adequate for being right on the beach, where one doesn't spend much time in the room. The rooms seem to all be missing screen doors..may be purposeful but makes it hard to ventilate the room when there are no other windows facing the ocean.
