“Spacious, Comfortable Room; Fantastic Beach; Nice View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

We spent two very restful and relaxing nights here during mid-week this winter. The Sunset Motel has a wide variety of accommodations, from newer units to older rustic units. This time we stayed in a second floor Ocean View Studio unit, the newest units at the Sunset Motel. Our room had a nice ocean view looking across the road to the ocean. Although not as good as view as from the oceanfront units of the Vern Brown Addition, which we have stayed in before. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The Sunset Motel is located south of “Old Town” Bandon on Beach Loop Drive.

The beach here is fantastic, very scenic and great for walk along. We took advantage of the excellent “winter special”, with two mid-week nights for the price of one. What a bargain!

Our room was very spacious, comfortable and quiet. The climate control for the room worked well and kept the room at a comfortable temperature. The room was very clean. The king bed was comfortable. We enjoyed sitting in front of the gas fireplace on the sofa reading and watching the ocean. The room also has a small desk, table with four chairs (nice for playing games, or having a snack), large comfy upholstered chair, coffee table, mini-refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, and flat screen TV. We liked having the bath vanity separate from the rest of the bathroom. The only complaint we had is the Wi-Fi system in the room was very poor, with a signal only in one corner of the room. Where we did have a connection it was slow (not high-speed) and dropped out frequently. But, on the other had one does not come to the Oregon Coast to spend much time, if any using the Internet.

Room Tip: Winter Special mid-week rates are a real bargain

We live in Lincoln City, but also enjoy spending time further south along the coast. It was our anniversary get away and we choose Bandon, the Sunset Ocean Front Lodges to spend a few days. We are avid Geocachers and this gave us an opportunity to cache in a new area. Our condo was large and roomy. The view out the sliding glass doors was unbelievable. We felt like we could see out 500 miles. It was absolutely picture perfect. We had all the usual amenities; fireplace, comfortable couch, wi-fi, Plasma TV, microwave, fridge. There was a mini kitchen with all that you would need to cook a good meal. Although our place was a bit dated, it was very clean and comfortable. We would stay there again without hesitation.

Room Tip: We stayed street level in room 354, which was actually 3 floors up....from the beach.

We have stayed at Sunset numerous times over the years for business and pleasure. We have rented one of the houses for summer family vacations, frequently stay in the "Vern Brown" direct oceanfront rooms,the pet friendly and the budget rooms as well, for different trips. The rooms are always spotless (although some are a bit dated), the staff friendly and generous with their assistance. The view and beach are second to none and the prices for oceanfront are incredibly reasonable. When asked where to stay...there is NO other place in Bandon to compare. Winter months they offer 2 for 1 deals as well.
Bandon is home to spectacular golf courses and the famous Bandon cheese factory is being rebuilt, a welcome return to the community!

"Sunset is a hospitable place, lots of good service in the office, and the prices are right. This year (in September) we opted for Room 218, one of their "Rustic Cottages". (We've stayed in the older and newer hotel areas on previous stays). We arrived after dark, and could tell even then that we had scored the winning location. In the morning, the rising sun put a pink glow on Face Rock - just like the postcards show - right outside our deck! Semi-private stairs took us directly to the beach, for photo ops and driftwood gathering. When evening came, the sunset views were spectacular as well. The staff really knows their property and also knows about what to see and where to eat in the area. The cottages are, as advertised, "rustic", but are clean with plenty of space, nice linens and views that won't quit. Another thing we really like about Sunset is that when you reserve a room, you select the exact room you will be staying in - no surprises! "

Room Tip: Call the hotel directly to make your reservation, so the staff can describe the exact room for you.

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.

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.
