You will be grabbed by the sign, "rooms from $69." You see that the hotel is ocean front. Just don't send your husband in to book the room and find he accepted the value price which was in the little building over the office. I mean, if you are on a budget or you are not going to be in your room at all, then it's a fine option. If your only reason to be here was to rest and gaze at the ocean, pay the normal price and get the main building. FYI for travelers: I've found there is no room on the Oregon Coast that is safe and clean with an ocean view for under $100. Not complaining, just know that I should have known there was no way it was going to be that front building for $69. OK onward..
The Value rooms are all upstairs without handicapped access and they are 401-406. We were lucky enough to get room 406, that had a window facing west where we could see a sliver of the ocean. Room 405 next to us, had a view from the bathroom window. 401-404 overlook the parking lot or highway.
We had a queen bed, a small round table and two chairs, micro, mini fridge & mini coffee pot. The carpet, the bed & furnishings and the entire bathroom appeared fairly new. The shower had one of those caddies with soap, shampoo and conditioner in pumps on the wall, which actually makes it very easy to use. If you have concerns about what kind of soap or shampoo it it is, then carry your own. The bed was comfortable, and sturdy. We both have bad backs, so we know cheap mattresses. This was a good mattress.
They have a unique and interesting feature, hot tubs with an ocean view. 3 tubs in a plexi glassed in area make up for not having a pool. They are very proud of this feature and it's mentioned when folks call (while I was hanging in the lobby, I overhead a few calls), at check in, and in a binder in the room. In fact the binder exists to tell two things: how cool their hot tubs are and how bad other hotels are. As in, how fancy other hotels can be so you never leave the room, and they aren't like that. Uh... kind of a weird sales pitch, eh? The binder would be better served to have menus and area information. By the way, the pizza place was good.
There was a breakfast room from 7-9:30 with boiled eggs, cereal, and all sorts of toaster items including French Toast. Jam, peanut butter and cream cheese were available, as was coffee and orange juice. It was enough, especially for $69 a night. I was in the lobby however when I heard the person at the desk rattle off prices and tell the caller that if they had discounts coming, it would be $5 off the room. My husband offered AAA, AARP and Government (being there on Gov biz for their town, too), and was not given any further discount. Maybe that doesn't apply to the budget rooms.
So here's my final thought: It was good, it was clean, it was peaceful as long as you weren't Jonesing for a bit of relaxation with an ocean view. Pay the real price and get one of the other rooms if that's what you're there for. $69 for a good mattress and clean room and a bit of breakfast is a great deal on the Oregon coast.
