I stayed at this fine Motel with my Daughter and 2 young Grandsons on Sunday & Monday nights. We had a double Queen room on the third floor, with a great view of Yaquina Head Lighthouse. Our room was spacious, with a small sofa that could be made into another bed, a coffee table, a comfortable chair, a desk & chair. There is wireless internet available. The private balcony had two chairs and a small table. The bathroom was nicely appointed, with nice fluffy towels, large mirrors and a roomy closet.
Everything was impeccably clean. The staff were friendly and helpful from the front desk when we checked in to the young man who brought us fresh towels for the second day. The night desk person gave me a zip lock Baggie for ice for the younger Grandson's head bump.
We took advantage of the nice pool and jacuzzi, and I tried out the equipment in the exercise room. It is only a short walk across the road to the Beach! The GrandBoys saw starfish at low tide, ran and played in the waves, and each found a great stick of driftwood.
I appreciated the no smoking rules and the elevator to take us up to the 3rd floor. It was a Wonderful Stay and we are planning to return soon!
