“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed May 13, 2008

My husband, I and 7 month old daughter walked in and got one of the last rooms available. My husband looked at a traditional room as well as new addition and felt the new addition was well worth the higher rate. The new addition room was very big with 2 arm chairs, laminate & carpet, table w/3 chairs, king bed & fireplace & we still had room for a portable crib & area to let baby play on the floor. It has an excellent view of the ocean and our room was on the bottom floor, so we had a patio with grass, which we loved because we were able to spread a quilt outside and let our daughter play. It has beach access and only took 2 minutes to walk down to the ocean. The only possible downside would be that it had a handicapped shower, no tub. We thought the rate was very reasonable for the area and will definitely stay here again!

Nearing the end of a rather whirlwind road trip, we decided to stop in Bandon and were lucky to happen upon the Windermere and secured the last room available. The view from the room is second to none, and, although it is an old building and not at all a "luxury" facility, it was clean, the beds were comfortable and it met all our needs for an overnight stay. A great deal for $80.00 right on the beach! I would just tell the owners - up your prices a dollar and add a makeup remover package to your toiletries - that little blue rag with the note is completely insulting. I have better rags for cleaning the car!

I ended up stumbling on this place and got the last room available. It was July so air conditioning was not needed. I kept the doors and windows open and let the ocean breeze come into the room. The king size bed was more than enough for 1 person. The fireplace was great and the kitchen would have great if I stayed longer than 1 night. I sat on the balcony at night and watched a movie and as the sun set and the stars came out. I cannot wait to go back when I go to play golf at andon Dunes.

My husband and I come here all the time. Not only is Bandon one of the best Oregon coastal towns but the Windermere is fantastic. Our last trip consisted of us and another couple. We all decided to stay in the same room. The room we stayed in was great, it had a queen bed downstairs with the kitchen, the bathroom and a sitting area. The upstairs loft had two queens and a great window to open at night. The stairs are a little steep for elderly people and children, but we managed just fine.

Every time we stay here we encounter excellent service, very clean rooms, and a perfect view. I havent stayed in the newer additions yet but they look nice. However if you dont mind an "older" but completely clean room then just go with the cheaper units.

The prices are not the CHEAPEST in Bandon, but for everything you get it is by far the best deal! Our first trip to Bandon, we stayed in the Best Western at Face Rock and were completely dissapointed, that is how we found the Windermere, it just happens to sit right BETWEEN the Ocean and the Best Western.

We will come back for many years to come I am sure.

  • Liked — This hotel is consistently the best place to stay in Bandon.

Of course this place has an absolute stunning location. It always has! Its also clean and the housekeeping staff are friendly and even did my dishes that I hadn't gotten to yet. This was a special weekend for my husband so I booked the new addition remembering when we stayed right after they were built. Unfortunately, they having kept them up since then. Walls had several blemishes, the wallpaper was peeling in the bathroom and there are much nicer places in Bandon to spend your $189 per night! the best part is the private balcony/porch with a view but there is no privacy. We had children running through the porch with our window open during an intimate moment. The difference between the "new" rooms and the older is not enough to pay so much more. I would suggest staying in one of the more rustic rooms and save your money. If you are bent on staying in a King room, wait until the rates drop for winter. It may be more of a fair rate at that time. If it were my choice (and next year it will be *smile*) I would stay across the street and enjoy one of their suites that look over the ocean. The walk to the beach isn't that much farther.

  • Liked — The Oceann View
  • Disliked — The room was too expensive for how outdated it was

Great location on the beach. Across the street from Best Western, which has NO view. This one has sliding glass doors that open directly onto the beach in every room. There are no elevators for the upstairs units. Be forewarned - no hair dryers in the room, so you have to walk down to the front desk and get one. (Gee, can't they spend $20 per room to install hair dryers!!?) Wireless internet connection great. This was about a 15 minute cab drive from Bandon Dunes, and the local cab service, Par 3, is responsive and reliable. The restaurant across the street next to the Best Western doesn't look like much on the outside, but inside is nice, and it has great food.

  • Liked — Clean, quiet, comfortable with a great view.
  • Disliked — No hair dryer
