Location is excellent, but room was not particularly clean. No hair dryer. Had to ask for a fan because the one small window provided no circulation and the room was hot and stuffy. Old, scratchy blankets on bed and small uncomfortable pillows. Worst of all my dog got fleas from the room! Nice view and trail to a lovely beach, though.

We spent two nights in an upper suite, and found it to be very accommodating and relaxing. They have thought of everything you need to make your stay comfortable and convenient. We had a lovely ocean view in one of the newer units behind the manager's office. It did look into the adjoining unit, so we had to keep the shade closed by the dining table.

We had one issue with the volume on the TV not working, and the manager was not available in the evening, so I reported it the next morning. By early afternoon, he showed up with a new TV and promptly got it working. The grounds are beautifully kept, and there is a dog area (although we don't have a dog.)

This hotel is South of the downtown Bandon area. It is quiet and just a couple of miles from the heart of Bandon -- a quick drive.

Room Tip: All rooms have an ocean view. We requested the deluxe suite on the second floor and got a nice unit with a direct ocean view overlooking the path to the beach. There was a full flight of stairs that would not work with heavy luggage or an injured person.

Since we had booked our trip down the coast in advance (height of summer, figured we had to for oceanfront locations), we did not have the flexibility to spend more than one night here. This was definitely one of the nicest places we stayed on the coast, and definitely the best equipped. The one-room cottage was spacious and the kitchenette - with a two- burner cooktop and combination microwave/convection oven - allowed us to do more cooking than was possible in other hotel-type accommodations. The chairs were comfortable for reading or watching the ocean. They do a great job maintaining a path through the dunes to the beach and it was a really interesting beach for walking and exploring. We were there a few days after a storm and lots of purple sailors (a small, blue variety of jellyfish) were on the beach, apparently not a common occurrence. The staff were friendly and helpful. If we are in Bandon again, we will definitely stay here. The only negative for us is that we were on the second floor and they do not have elevators; would have been worth asking them about in advance.

Room Tip: Views from second floor Are worth it as long as you are okay without an elevator.

This excellent motel was built in the mid-thirties and retains the classic charm of the original design. If you need marble countertops and last week's fabric colors from Paris, then book a place in New York City. If you like the charm of expansive views of the Pacific and clean comfortable rooms, you can't do better than this property. I have been staying here for decades and will keep coming back.

Room Tip: The motel has both an original section and newer rooms. Talk to the management about your needs and preferences.

This was a spontaneous trip for me to the Southern Oregon Coast. As a native Oregonian, I had never been to Bandon or farther south and wanted to explore this area for a few days. I spent 2 nights in one of the smaller Windermere cottages and could not have been happier. The room was perfectly set up with 2 comfortable Queen beds, microwave and small refrigerator. I did not have a quiet patio facing the beach with this room but had 2 chairs and a small table that were in my room's little alcove facing the beach on the grass which made a perfect place to enjoy a beautiful sunset, listening to the ocean waves and eating fish and chips. There is a short walk to the beach and from there the possibilities are endless. I walked for miles on the beach and found it to be very quiet. The Windermere staff was very helpful, although I didn't need any assistance. The Windermere cottages are well maintained with care. Although I had to return home, my heart is still right on my new favorite beach spot, Windermere on the Beach!
