The room was really clean, decorated in a beach-related motif and as an added bonus from room 4 I had a partial view of the beach! The staff is incredibly friendly from the moment I booked the trip when I was called to make sure I meant to book a room in Washington State and not Washington DC but also... More

We stayed at Sand Dollar Inn during the annual Beachcomber’s Fun Fair down in Ocean Shores because of its access to beautiful Pacific Beach. It’s a quaint and unpretentious place with down-to-earth hospitality. Although somewhat basic in nature, it has tidy rooms and beach character. We would go back- it's a great value in a great location!

Stayed at the Sand dollar inn this weekend for the razor clam dig. Decent place, nothing fancy, clean with helpful staff. They have clam cleaning station in the back which is nice to have. The inn is within walking distance of the beach. About 5 min walk if that. Decent restaurant at the Navy facility. Chicken fried steak was good...

Girlfriend and i took the grandkids for the weekend. The room was comfy and clean. It is very close to the beach and has wonderful staff. The kitchen was well furnished. They also supplied towels for drying our dog.

This inn is old but clean and gives you friendly services. It's nearby water about couple minutes by walking. Gas station and convenience stores are within a block. One negative is thin wall. I could hear next room's noises. Other than that, you can relax and enjoy vacation.
