“Perfect Romantic Getaway!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2009

I loved the room. It felt more like an apartment than a hotel room. The hot tub was awesome. The room was spotless upon arrival, with rose petals. They leave you alone unless you want something. You forget you are not the only ones there. Will be recommending to our friends for romantic getaways. You are right on the beach. Only negatrives are tiny bathroom and you have to unscrew the outside light bulb in order to sleep at night. This was my favorite romantic getaway spot ever.

I have stayed at Starfish manors' sister property Beach Front a few times with my kids on girls only weekends and had been raving to my husband how wonderful it was. So, we finally decided to leave the kids with Grandma and head down for a Romantic night so he could see for himself what I was raving about. When we pulled into the parking lot he said, " this is not a big deal" but once we made it to our room he changed his mind. The view was fantastic, the room was perfect and the hottub on the deck was all ready to go. I love this place and will stay here whenever given the opportunity and I have made my husband a loyal return customer as well! O' and there is the best little restaurant down the way called the Orchid Grill or something of that sort and they have the Best Breakfast, fantastic home made bread!

  • Liked — Quiet, no pets or kids allowed on our floor, great views, very relaxing spa like feel
  • Disliked — no on site food or pool, prices a little steep, no internet

Beachfront Manor is one of several properties operated by Starfish Manor and/or onthebeachfront.com (Star Fish Manor, Beachfront Manor, Nantucket Inn, Nelscott Manor). We originally booked 4 nights at the Nantucket, but at the last minute our room was closed for repair due to heavy winds and rain, so we were upgraded to the Beachfront Manor at no additional charge.

We were on the 2nd floor facing the ocean. You couldn't get any closer to the beach without being built over the beach on pilings. The front foundation of the property is literally on the beach, and at high tide the waves reach the bulkhead - to which the front deck extends even with. On the private deck is a 2 person hot tub, which was clean, pre-filled, hot and ready to go. There's nothing quite like a private hot tub on a deck overlooking the ocean. It's a romantic getaway destination for sure.

Now for the actual room, well...it's just a room. Nothing fancy - in fact I would go so far as to say it would have been a disappointment if it were not for the view, proximity to the water and the hot tub. There was a smaller flat-screen TV and a gas-powered, thremostat-controlled fireplace...but the room just felt average to us. Not bad average, but it just isn't "special" either.

It's a few flights of stairs to get to your room as well. No elevators. If it's windy and raining you get moderately wind blown and wet getting to your room from the small exposed parking area. Just an FYI, this wasn't a big deal for us - but an elderly couple with heavy bags might want to make prior arrangements for assistance at check-in (there are no personnel on site, the front desk is at Star Fish Manor nearby, but at the Beachfront Manor you're on your own).

If you love the ocean and being close to the water, and you're looking for a romantic setting, this is the place for you. But if you like the creature-comforts of a 4 or 5 star hotel, look elsewhere.

  • Liked — Location, proximity to beach, view. hot tub
  • Disliked — Carrying luggage up and down stairs, no restraunt, gift shop or lobby on premises.

We spent our Anniversary here. When I called to reserve our room, I was told I could stay a 3rd night for only a penny more. This worked out great as it snowed that day, which did not bother us at all.

We stayed on the 5th floor, which is on level with the parking lot, so no stairs for us. We had a hot tub on the private deck overlooking the beach, which we used every day, even when the wind howled and rain hit the windows, even in the snow. The deck is covered, with glass railing on the west side. Would have been nice to have it glassed in on the south, as most wind comes from that side, but never the less, the hot tub was toasty and worthwhile. Bathrobes are included for trips to and from the hot tub.

When we arrived, there were fresh rose petals arranged on our bed, along with chocolate, a feature which was repeated everyday with maid service (the chocolate, not the petals). We found the housekeeping to be very thorough.

The large room was heated by the gas fireplace (which looked like flaming rocks instead of wood) and was warm and comfortable. Nice flatscreen tv above the fireplace, comfy couch. The bed was very comfortable. I have a bit of "The Princess and the Pea" complex, so this was appreciated.

The only complaint I had was the bathroom, which was airplane tiny. Toilet - claustrophobic, sink - cute but tiny, shower - just don't drop anything! Mirror, lovely corner just right for makeup.

I'm not sure where the $90 a night comes from, maybe that is for rooms without the view. Our room was $179 a night. Still, this is one of the best deals on the beach. It's got the view, it's got the private deck and hot tub, the fireplace and the comfortable bed. This combination is not easy to find. Glad we did.

We stayed at the Beachfront Manor for our anniversary and certainly would go back. There were a few things we would change but over all the stay was lovely.

First off- two days before we were due to check in another poster told me that they were running a special- the third night for a penny. Well we were staying three nights and booked prior to this special but took the chance and called. They gladly changed the price for us. We asked if that was the case could we add Monday onto our stay, they happily did so. They called us Monday morning for an estimated arrival time- they wanted to do something special for us which I assume was fresh rose petals in the room. It was lovely. The bath was beautiful as was the room. It was very sparse- no paintings or extra stuff. I like that so I was very pleased. It was also SPOTLESS. The bed was very, very, comfortable. If you have an allergy to feathers- the comforters are feather filled so beware. The view was wonderful. The patio area was large and we sat out a lot- the weather was perfect. We were right by the stairs down to the beach. We had a big flatscreen TV and DVD player in the room. (no tv channel card so we started a list of our favorites. this would be a nice touch to add.)

Speaking of stairs- I have to mention- to get to the first floor- you have 63 steps to navigate. Getting down is not usually the problem- it is going up that can get hard. I had heard about this issue and we packed light. I can see it being really hard for a lot of people- including small kids.

The only things we would change were- the outside light was really bright which is a saftey thing but the drapes are thin - they need hotel balckout ones. We unscrewed the bulb a half a turn each night after the first night and re-lit it before we left. No big deal. Also- on the first floor- the walkway goes right past your entry so the patio/deck is beyond that- so no slideing glass doors - one big window that gave a nice view but only a tiny part on the bottom opened. Fine for this time of year but for better weather I would probably move a floor up. Also worth a note- there was no dresser. There was space to hang clothers and a nice luggage rack to put the suitcase on- which we made use of. If we had had out kids with us that would be hard because there would really not be enough room to just have it set out. Not at all an issue for us but worth mentioning for others.

They will clean the room each day if asked- otherwise they do not bother you. This is clearly noted in the room on the info sheet.


All in all we loved it and would stay again but probably try a room on the floor above so we had a slider and 20 odd less stairs to climb! The staff was wonderful and we could not have done any better on our budget!

Plus side - lovely linens, and terrific bed. Fireplace heats the room. Gorgeous view. Very clean. The sink was state of the art.

Negative - the website warns you the parking lot is on the 6th floor, and no elevators. The steps are outside, and it is a long long way down to the first floor, and a miserable trek back up again. You walk past a dirty garbage can. We "knew", but we really were not prepared for such a journey.

The room they show on the website is their best room on this floor. The one we were assigned only had a window in the front, and the curtains were attached with push pins. Yes, pins.

The deck is a shared deck, and large, but between your window and the deck is a shared walkway. The deck is protected waist high with glass, which keeps out the wind, but unfortunately also traps the seagulls should they chose to land there. Luckily for us the handyman happened by (and told us it happens often) and he did get it out safely and quickly.

The robes are too small for a large person, meaning if you wear L or XL they will not be comfortable. Our shower had some pressure issues, but the showerhead was really high so a tall individual could have a complete shower, that was nice.

The table and two leather chairs were placed under the very large wall mounted television. Even moving them elsewhere didn't provide a nice viewing experience for either the tv or the ocean.

We were forewarned we could not use candles or put seafood in the refrigerator. Lincoln City had a major major storm that left the city without electricity for days, back in 12/07. This is not a place you would enjoy taking the long stairs and sitting in the dark for 2 or 3 days should another occur.

Looking at the website and actually seeing the hotel - well, we were disappointed.

Their other properties in Lincoln City looked very very nice from the outside.

A special friend and I were looking for a spot on the coast to slip away from the cares of the world, and through a little bit of research I found the Beach Front Properties website. There are actually 3 properties available through this site, but we choose the Beachfront Manor.

We stayed in a King room without a Jacuzzi. The appointments of the room were exactly as displayed in the photo on the website. One of our favorite features was the sliding screendoor to a nice deck from which to view the beach and ocean. We enjoyed sipping our evening wine or morning coffee while watching the beach strollers.

The bed was extremely comfortable and a good nights sleep was easy while lulled asleep and awake by the crashing waves of the pacific. Nice big screen TV and DVD/CD player added just the right touch for music and romantic movies.

With the temperatures in the 90's we did not get to fully enjoy the gas fireplace.

Two very minor complaints, the shower was exceedingly small. Now as a big man, I am used to that, but even my lover said it was a little too small for comfort. The other minor oddity was that we could only get warm and hot water out of the tap, no matter what knob we turned. As I stated these were very minor, and did not take away from a very romantic stay.
