“Disappointed”
Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

This was in the mid of Nov and we were told they could not give us the rate they were advertising on the web because the 2nd night was Friday. No one showed up on Friday. We stayed in a pet friendly room and the mattress was horrible. For $105 a night I expected better. They said if you want good WII fi to stay nearer the patio door. They did give us towel for the doggie.

Stayed November 2012, traveled as a couple

The room was average for the price. The WI-FI did not work in the room even though we were told there was an antenna right outside of the room. I had to use the lobby connection instead. Luckily I only needed to use my computer once. That being said, we would stay there again just for the view and easy bike ride route. If we hadn't stopped at a local shop and been told about the hotel, we would never have found it. ALL of the inns and hotels are NOT on the highway, but off to the west on Beach Loop Dr.

Room Tip: We didn't see an elevator so if you have walking issues, get a ground floor. There are patios f...

Yes, the view is fantastic. If it were not for that, this place would be very poor indeed. Our oceanfront room in a building built in 1988 was clean, I'll give it that but so past its "best before" date. Very old and tired. The young woman at the front desk was not friendly, she seemed tired and uninterested in us. And the "breakfast" the next morning was awful. I had to pay $1.50 for a bottle of oj and $1.50 for a bottle of water. To add insult to injury, the oj was past it's best before date. The steps down to the beach were dirty, unswept and rusty. All in all, the poorest accommodation on a 10 day trip to Oregon.

Went during the winter and did get in some sunny days. Our room was looking right at the ocean. The staff was very friendly and let us look at our units for return trips. Have been to Bandon in the summer but winter it is a different place. The shops down town are not crowed and the workers love to talk about the city. We are a wonderful time.

This is my favorite Spot on the Oregon coast and my first pick for a place to stay in Bandon. I have been coming here since 1985. It is still owned by the same family, 4 generations now. I find it very important to check out your room first! They have a variety of accommodations, large and small, some new and modern, AND some old, rustic & funky. All rooms are clean, well appointed, quiet. Some of the rustic rooms do have a slight musty smell. This has not been a problem for me but my fiend insisted we upgrade to the newer Vern Brown addition. Most rooms have private ocean-viewing balconies, decks or patios that overlook the sandy beach and the majestic sea stacks and the Pacific Ocean. Some rooms have wood burning fireplaces. The sunsets here are incredible. The Inn offers numerous locations for beach access, this is the best beach for a walk or playing in the sand.

Room Tip: Do you like modern or rustic? I enjoy both depends on who I am traveling with. I would recommend t...

We stayed 2 nights each at 3 different types of lodging on our way up the coast during our amazing 13 day Oregon Road Trip. The view from Sunset was splendid (when the fog was not too thick). We enjoyed the balcony, fireplace and walks on the beautiful beach. Continental breakfast was packaged muffins, yogurt and coffee---nothing fancy, but satisfying. The room was larger than a typical hotel room with a kitchenette and table and chairs. It was clean and charming, but dated. The Lord Bennet Restaurant is right across the road and, although we did not eat there, looked fabulous! Bandon has a quaint "Old town" right on a small harbor with fish shacks, candy stores and other touristy things. All in all, the Sunset was a great choice for a fine room with an amazing view in a picturesque little coastal town.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Vern Brown addition, right on the beach. Top floor is level with the street and 3...

While touring the Oregon Coast along Pacific coast Hyw. 101 we stopped in Bandon, OR. on 9/01/2012. We have stayed at the Sunset Ocean Lodge before and enjoyed it so much we just had to return. There is quite a selection of different buildings to stay in, but we prefer the Vern Brown addition. We have stayed in both corner rooms 350 and 356. The view from these rooms is the best on the Oregon Coast, and rivals Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach. The room is very large, clean, and considering the view, reasonably priced. It has a balcony, small refrig. The room is about 50' above the beach, so you have to walk down quite a few steps to get to the beach, but it's worth it.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the west side of Beach Loop Drive. Level "A" (upper floor) is less noisy.
