We stayed two nights at Bandon Beach Motel in November 2013, while on a an intentionally unplanned trip. We'd seen the place on line, but pretty much stumbled to it after arriving in Bandon late in the afternoon. Chuck, the owner, showed us rooms he had available and we chose the "fireplace room". The view is nothing short of spectacular, and access to the beach is steps away from every room at the motel.
The room was very clean--the wood floors a welcome alternative to the usual questionable motel carpet. Accommodations were basic but complete, and well thought out, pleasant, and very comfortable. The service was exceptionally good. As a smoker, I appreciated that there was a designated smoking area that I assured I was comfortable, and that no other guest was made uncomfortable by anyone's smoking. Likewise, pet owners were accommodated graciously, and none of the rooms we saw seemed tainted by animal odor or other evidence of pets in residence.
My only criticism is minor. Our room had a laminated, two sided document stating rules and regulations for the Bandon Beach Motel. In contrast to the gracious personal welcome the owner gave us, the document was harsh and about as warm as the nun who rapped my knuckles with a ruler in 3rd grade. I suggest to the owners that the same messages--asking guests to be considerate of the property and one another--could be stated in a way that matches the respect we got at the front desk.
We will absolutely return to the Bandon Beach Motel and have already recommended it to other.
