Wow...where do i start with this one...First of all i went through all the reviews posted here about this motel and almost all were good to decent. I was a little worried about the reviews saying there was a noise issue...but wanted to take the chance with that one...and glad we did!!!

When we arrived and entered our room we were pleasantly surprised to see the view out...The ocean is your backyard!!! You have a little balcony and some lawn chairs to sit and just relax if you wanted. I am a clean freak when traveling and this place was spotless and smelled clean...the room was nice, with a small fridge, microwave, gas fireplace, dvd player, and a 32" flat screen, and 2 cup coffee maker. We had the king size bed, and it was a firm but comfy sleep. The motel was easy to access from hwy 101, and located about 2 miles from the town of Taft. Lots of places near by to eat and shop at. The price is next to nothing especially during the summer months...the price of 2 weekend nights compared to the many hotel/motels out there was a steal. The motel also offers a indoor pool (3'-5') and a spa, which is located towards the back and has a window view of the ocean. It also offers a small vending machine with sodas and waters and a snack one as well. The beach access is super, just go down the stairs and out the back and you are on the beach! This place had an array of ages and many families. We were on the top floor and were not bothered by any noise other than the sound of the ocean! We were able to see that the motel offers many different sizes of rooms...some with large living rooms, kitchens and bedrooms...great place for any occasion!
The only downfall for this place is that the balconies are very close together, and prohibit privacy when out on them. Parking is small (although they do have extra gravel parking just across the street). Oh and no hairdryers...Other than that this place is awesome!!! We will be back again and again!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 52 3rd floor...Great room!!!!

This was our 1st family vacation to the Oregon coast. My relatives have stayed here many times before and totally raved about it. We booked their Captains Quarters. It is HUGE!!! We had 3 families stay in it and also had other family staying in another room. We all gathered in our room which didnt feel cramped with 8 adults and 4 kids visiting. The room was clean and we got service everyday. Staff didnt bug you or get in your business, which I found so relaxing like it was my 2nd home. The easy access to the beach is A+ for me and my little ones. I LOVED sleeping with the sliding glass door cracked open so I could hear the ocean all night. The smell and sound is amazing! The swimming pool was nice and warm. Also, close to store for some milk and other things. I will only stay here when I travel to Lincoln City in the future!!!

The Sandcastle is an older establishment and dated but for what it lacks in bells and whistles it more than makes up for with the location. It is as ocean front as you can get. The prices are excellent. The rooms are clean and adequate. The ocean is literally right out the door. The beach is wonderful. We were lucky enough to have good weather but I would love to stay there in a storm. We will stay again. The grandkids loved the pool. There are restaurants close by. We had a double queen unit with a small frig, MW and coffee maker. Only complaint would be the coffee maker was very slow.

Room Tip: Request a room with a balcony.

The Sandcastle Beachfront Motel is clean with updated bathrooms. Each unit has a small kitchen with a full-sized refrigerator. The rooms are clean and simple with great views. While we were there, a small seal pup was resting on the beach near by. It was being protected by concerned citizens until the appropriate people arrived to fence off the area and let people know what the situation was. The pups rest on the beach until it's mother returns from hunting.

Room Tip: Only the bottom floor has direct access to the beach. Room #14 is directly across from the Ice Machi...

We have been to the Sandcastle a few times now, as a family as well as adults only. We love the location and the indoor pool. Rates were good for the amenities.The decor leaves something to be desired though, kinda shabby and run down. But you REALLY can't beat the view and the beach access.
We will be coming back to visit again very soon!

Room Tip: No elevators so if you have issues climbing ask for bottom floor. Beach access is only a few steps d...

Our family has been staying at the Sandcastle for more than 25 years. We started when our kids were small and now that we're empty-nesters, we still love to go there. It's nothing fancy, but very clean, quiet, and scenic. We always get the rooms with a kitchen and prepare some of our meals so we can have a view of the ocean while we eat. Huge windows look out to the ocean, which sometimes comes clear up to the wall below you. We love to leave the window cracked a bit at night to hear the ocean roar while we sleep. It's a great place at a great price!

Room Tip: Of the three floors, we like the second best. The ground floor is nice too, but there are people wa...
