Sandpiper Beach Resort

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!

Horrid HORRID HORRID! This was a last minute stay for us. We got a cabin on the beach. The beach is spectacular. The cabin was horrid! Stale smelling beds, mold smelly walls and ceiling, rusty water pipes, piles of garbage collected outside our room...the decor and furnishings have not been updated since they first became operational. Dark rooms that smell musty. Moss grown on damp outdoor furniture. It was awful. The extra beds in our room had no support but plenty of smell. My advice- camp in your own car for better comfort and cleanliness- if you’re not camping outside. This room is a rip-off. NEVER AGAIN!!!

I had reserved a room for Sunday this 4th of July weekend. Got confirmation (# 3690838856), total cost $105 ($74 room, $11 tax, $20 “cleaning fee”) as advertised on several booking sites and Sandpiper's website. On July 3 manager, Annie Su, called to inform me of "a mistake”, the room would now cost $179 (plus tax & fees). I said that was unacceptable and they must honor the price they already confirmed. She offered to come down to $159, but I refused to pay more. She called again today (4th of July) to inform me that she cancelled my reservation because I would not pay the higher price. Now I am left to find another room on a holiday! I can hardly believe they would actually pull this! I’ve stayed here a number of times, but never, never again.

The Sandpiper Beach Resort is an old property on a phenomenal beach. The facility can accommodate larger groups comfortably and allows dogs so if you are looking for a reasonably affordable accommodation for a larger family then this is the place......It is not the Ritz, it doesn't pretend to be so reviews that complain about old furnishings, etc. are missing the point. The proprietor works the front desk and she is a very helpful person who geuninely seems to appreciate your business which makes this even more attractive. Again, larger groups with dogs on a great beach for great sunsets easy driving distance to the casino or Ocean Shores restaurants then try Sandpiper.

A quiet escape on the Pacific Ocean beach, with expansive views, easy access to the beach, helpful staff, pet friendly. Come here to get away from your job, your email, and get outside on the beach. Watch the eagles play overhead, the sandpipers run on the sand.

This was our favorite getaway in the 1990s It was a little rundown then, but pleasant enough. Some of the best beach front access and miles of clear beach (without all of the hubbub of bigger destinations like Ocean Shores). A decent restaurant, at Ocean Crest Resort is not too far away. So we were distraught to find the "resort" was completely run down when we arrived for a 2 nights stay in September 2018. Under seemingly new ownership since the last time we'd been there. Immediately upon entering our room, we were hit by a cloud of stank mildewy air. The same indoor/outdoor carpet and threadbare bedspreads we'd had at our last visit nearly THIRTY years ago. Visible dirt and mildew in the bathroom and kitchen, peeling paint inside and out, and insects and condensation on the windows.. The seals were broken on every double pain window, so the glass was foggy and filthy-- forget about an ocean view, there wasn't any view. We turned right around and went back to the office to complain and ask for a refund. They refused. They offered a portable air purifier (clearly the stench is known issue, so much so that they keep air purifiers on hand at the front desk). We slept that night, in our outdoor clothes, boots, jackets zipped and hoods up (God only knows what was lurking on those bed pillows) on the dingy thread-bare formerly-pastel sheets (you could literally read the mattress tags through the sheets) Definitely the worst night's "sleep" I've had, possibly EVER. We left at the crack of dawn the following morning, forfeiting the rent for our 2nd paid night. The place is a shameful disgusting place. STAY AWAY
