Not a lot of choices in Port Orford but I believe we made the correct one. It is an older building but clean and comfortable. I loved the deck where you have a great view of the ocean below.

The owners were friendly.

We only spent the night and for the reasonable price we paid - we were happy with the accommodations. They have a kitchen for those that cook on vacation and a separate bedroom and living room.

I would recommend it.

Each and every room has a second to none view of the pacific. Its so peacefull and the area hasn't been ruined by over crowding or chain businesses. Although not a lot of rooms, that just adds to the atmosphere. The rooms are all very nice. Some have 2 levels with a spiral staircase. They have small kitchen spaces, that are more than enough. The living spaces are comfortable, and there is an enclosed deck area with chairs so you can relax and watch the sea and stay dry if its stormy. The staff is also very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I feel very lucky to go there once a year with my wife.

Room Tip: The two level rooms have three beds. The lower level rooms have one.

Another vote for a good, good place. The terrific view from the enclosed deck of our spacious room included the coast, ocean, and a shallow, sandy harbor where all boats are craned off of and onto a concrete dock. The owner was friendly and accommodating. We'd definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends.

This is our second time here at the Castaway By the Sea. We just love the place. If you want to just sit back and relax watching boats lowered and lifted at the Port Orford dock. Look for whales which we were lucky to see or just looking out this is the place. Rockne the owner is great for information about the area. The rooms are big and comfortable and enclosed front porch. The walls are thin but the good outweighs the bad by far. We will be back.

We booked this motel mainly for the view and we were not disappointed as fas as that is concerned.

The motel itself however badly needs renovation. The furniture is old and damaged. The carpet smells and the matrass on the bed is wornout. The walls are paper thin. We could here our snoring neighbour as if he was in our room.

However, if you decide to stay here walk down to the harbour and visit the shed in the middle. This shed appears to be a restaurant that serves the freshest salmon you'll probably ever eat.

Had a very comfortable room. A wee bit outdated furnishings but the view was awesome. Our room had an enclosed porch with a rocking chair to enjoy to view. The hotel sits on a cliff overlooking the small harbor of Port Orford. Even had a small deer wander up on the property to nibble on the flower bushes. Staff extremely friendly and helpful.

My fiance and I stayed in Port Orford for one evening. I would not have stayed in this hotel for more than one night. It smelled as though it hadn't been opened in months. It had that old, musty smell which permiated my nose as soon as we walked through the door.

It was clean but extrememly outdated. If you are only concerened about being close to the beach or looking at a pretty view out your window this may be the place for you.The door opens to the outside and when we went around back to take the wooden stairs down to the beach the stairs had a sign to take them at your own risk. Instead we chose to walk the long way down the driveway.

The proprietor is a nice guy and he has owned this place for many years. Surprisingly the bed was pretty comfortable but the pillows, sheets and blankets left something to be desired.
