I called at 2:00 ( as directed) to see about early check-in. I was told it wouldn't be possible. So I rolled up at 4:00 (check-in time) and was given my room assignment by a very nice gentleman. he seemed so nice that i was only mildly annoyed at having to wait another 15 minutes for my room to get ready. (If you knew at 2:00 that I was ready to get into my room, wouldn't mine be one of the first rooms you cleaned to ensure that it's at least ready by 4:00?)
My room was $139 on a Tuesday night...which, from what I can tell, is more than typical for this type of room/hotel in Bandon.
For that price, I expect my ocean view to be quite nice. Mine sucked! The window was about 75% parking lot and 25% ocean (as in just the still blue ocean - no waves crashing into the beach - because to see that from my angle, I'd have needed to be about 6 stories higher).....
If I stood in just the right spot in the corner of the room, hen it was more like 50% ocean.
Having said that, it looked like several (most?) of the rooms had great views. But I didn't seem to get a discount for having a crappy "oceanfront" view. I'd have asked for a different room, but there were no better rooms available.
If not a great view, I would expect more frills for that price. There were none. No pool, no breakfast, etc.
The room itself was fine, although the beds were pretty firm and I prefer soft. I had a room with a kitchenette....and the cupboards all had the doors removed....i thought that was odd and and a little unaesthetic, but it didn't really change my opinion of the room.
