The Sandpiper Beach Resort is located on Washington's wild Pacific Coast, two miles south of the town of Pacific Beach in Grays Harbor County, roughly 3 hours' drive west of Seattle. The resort, founded in 1973, is nestled on a forested hillside directly on Mocrocks beach, a miles-long strip of flat, sandy beach known for its crashing surf, adjacent clay bluffs, and solitude. Offshore, fishing boats and whales ply the pristine waters of the Copalis National Wildlife Refuge.At the Sandpiper, our goal is to provide you with a clean, comfortable, functional and affordable place to get away from it all and enjoy the company of those you're traveling with. Accommodations range from small cabins or studios with room for 2-4 guests, up to large cabins or multi-bedroom units that are perfect for groups as large as 12. Each unit includes a fully-equipped kitchen, fireplace, sweeping ocean view, and a private deck or patio with rocking or lounge chairs for taking in the sunset with a glass of wine in hand.Sandpiper guests pass their time in a range of activities. Long walks on the beach are a must in any season. A winter day might be spent inside by the fire, watching a storm roll in off the Pacific. The wind is often perfect for kite-flying, while a warm day in July or August finds many guests swimming or body-surfing in the cool ocean waves.The Sandpiper infuses kids and dogs with a special energy; both are welcome and encouraged here. Generations of Northwest families have made the Sandpiper a home away from home.Our position by the world's most productive razor clam beds, together with our handy Clam Kitchen, draws visitors during licensed digs throughout the fall, winter and spring. Fishermen don hip-waders and stride into the waves after tasty surfperch. Indoors, you might cook up a delicious meal, read a good book, or tackle a board game or puzzle. At night, a cozy bed and the soft roar of the ocean will allow you to drift off and perhaps even sleep in late.If cabin fever strikes, head over to our Gift Shop to sip an espresso, use the free Wi-Fi, and shop for a memento of your stay or a gift for a loved one. Hop in the car to explore all that coastal Washington has to offer, from horseback riding on the beach at Ocean Shores, to hiking the temperate rain forest or alpine peaks of nearby Olympic National Park. The closest town, Pacific Beach, housed a secret Cold War-era submarine-listening post, which is now a recreation facility open to the public.A bit further north in Moclips, the Museum of the North Beach chronicles the unexpectedly rich history of the area. The beaches of the Quinault Indian Nation hide remote treasures like the much-photographed Tunnel Island; visit tribal headquarters in Taholah for a day pass, or engage a tribal guide for world-class salmon fishing on the Quinault River.The Sandpiper is a true retreat, with no TVs or phones to disturb your stay, and only limited cell phone service in the area. Join us at the edge of the earth to get away from it all!

Magnificent ocean view.... Period! What a dump! Our room was old and smelled. The bed was hard and uncomfortable. Forget about taking a shower... the water hardly came out of the showerhead! Dogs everywhere urinating and defecating in the same grassy area where children played! Needles to say, we will never stay at the Sandpiper again!

Be very careful manager does not honor reservations changes confirmed reservations to downgrade then to limited views with non working facilities such as toilet and shower. The location is good but it is not worth the hassle to deal with unclean rooms and most of all deal with games the management plays with your confirmed room reservations.

Anyone remember the Weatherly Inn at Ocean Shores? The Sandpiper Beach Resort reminded me of that homey hotel, little apartment-like rooms with a fireplace and dog-friendly. The main difference is The Sandpiper has private balconies with charming rockers and an unparalleled view of the ocean. And there are absolutely no "Ground floor only" restrictions for folks travelling with their fur-babies . This is the only hotel we have been able to relax and enjoy a one of a kind view of the ocean from our room. Usually relegated to dune-view because we travel with the pups. Tip: if possible, get a room on the 3rd floor, the hotel is built next to a hillside and the 3rd floor rooms are the quickest, easiest walk from parking area to room , handy knowledge if your lugging a loaded ice-chest to stock your apartment sized fridge. Also it's a private beach. Amazing. The owner is very personable and pleasant. She has a nice gift shop/mini store for things you may have forgotten.

After reading all of the negative reviews and almost not booking here, I'd like to leave my honest opinion of Sandpiper to help those who are are on the fence. Let's start with booking. The phone systems are terrible and were messed up when we booked therefore, I waited over an hour to get through but once I did the staff was very helpful and nice. Once we arrived on Friday, the check in process was easy and the staff was very friendly. If you go on a weekend or during busy time, you can expect to wait outside until called in and this is due to Covid and social distancing. We booked a 2 bedroom and had a beachfront view. The room was clean but like other reviews say, they are older. We had fresh wash rags and towels. Only bar soap though so you will need to bring your own toiletries. Kitchen had a few dishes along with pots and pans. Beds are ok. Not the most comfortable but I didnt expect temperpedic. The resort furnishes beach towels which was nice. The amenities such as the pools with water slides, lazy river and hot tub are again older but seemed clean. The tiki bar area was nice with affordable drink prices. The resort itself is fine for what it is. It's some of the people you have to worry about. The weed smoking was a very popular thing here and we could smell it several times a day. We could care less however, we had a pregnant woman and 3 toddlers in our group and the room beside of us was smoking it so much that the smell was coming over to our room and it was unbearable for some. We went to the front desk and complained just to see if they would ask them not smoke it in the room because of our kids. The manager was very polite, took time to listen and immediately took care of the problem. In conclusion and our overall experience, Sandpiper is great for the price. If you want modern or the extra amenities, then I would look into staying at other resorts. If you are ok with basic but still want to have a good time and not spend a fortune then this place is perfect.

We stay here 2 to 3 times a year for multiple weeks. Lovely staff, great beach walking, relaxing. And feeling like we are a world away from everything else. Wonderful gift and coffee shop. We bring a couple weeks worth of food, books, mp3 player, board games and just relax. Right on ocean. Jim heitzman
