“Family-friendly, comfortable place with great view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2012

We stay at this resort whenever we visit the quiet, peaceful beach of Rockaway Beach. We love going to Rockaway Beach because it is never too crowded even in the summer and the town's got cute little places. The hotel itself is not too fancy (just like the town!) but they have everything for family weekend getaway at a reasonable price. Their kitchenette is very clean and is pretty well equipped for a hotel. I like how the rooms are always clean and they have heated pool! The view is pretty amazing. The place is right on the beach! The service I thought was relatively okay too. I really like the location of this place the best out of all the hotels/motels in Rockaway Beach.

Room Tip: Look for discounts on their website! We usually get it.

We stayed 2 nights in January. Very comfortable and clean. Nothing fancy, but we came for the ocean, not the hotel. 7 miles of beach right at your feet, dog friendly, gas fireplace and a kitchen. Reasonably priced. We like Rockaway because there isn't much there; peace and quiet and the beach.

We stayed here a few years ago but always in the summer...In the winter the rooms are drafty...Only a small wall heater under the window...The bathroom has a window so very drafty and like sitting in an outhouse. Need to have a GOOD heat lamp in there or add a heater. It would of been nice to have the heat turned on prior to our arrival on a cold December night! The bed was cold so felt damp..The mattresses are past their lifetime and need to be replaced..There was no Alarm Clock...The Ocean View is awesome and the reasonable rates are appreciated but please update!!!!

We had a very pleasant room with a great ocean view, plenty of room for a kitchen area, dining table and a fireplace. One minor complaint was the lack of pots, pans and utensils, which rendered the kitchen mostly useless for long-distance travelers. We didn't try the pool facilities due to a tight schedule and bad weather, but the beach access was great.
Unfortunately, our 2-night visit was virtually spoiled by a lack of sleep due to the most uncomfortable bed we've ever encountered. It was literally rock hard and just lumpy enough to add a few extra pressure points. I took the cushions off of the little sofa and slept on the floor the first night, leaving the bed to my wife. We asked for extra pillows the second night, which helped a little, but not enough. We were in town for a busy meeting, and we had paid up front, so we elected to tough it out rather than trying to find an alternative.

Room Tip: Check the bed first! Housekeeping said some are better, but complaints are common.

Hello,

Sorry to hear about the discomfort you experienced during your stay. All of our mattresses were changed out within the past 3-4 years. If you could e-mail us with the room number in which you stayed we would be more than happy to check on that specific mattress. If you could e-mail or call us we would be more than happy to assist you with your future visits. Thank you so much again for your stay with us.

We have stayed at quite a few hotel/motels and vacation rentals on the Oregon Coast and this one gives a little more for the price than others of it's type. Be sure and check their web-site for their 20% off coupon! The 1 Q room with a fully stocked kitchen and a large bathroom was very clean, maybe a little beat-up but not wore-out...The man at the desk was quick and efficient, also had Halloween candy for us:0).On the beach oceanfront with the private deck was perfect. There is a pool but as our reason for being there was to use it as a base for hiking the trails we didn't have the time to enjoy it...Oh and I cant' forget the gas fireplace; perfect after being out all day!

Room Tip: We had a room on the top floor corner of building A which provided a front and side view of the ocea...

We've stayed in the oceanfront rooms on several occasions and once in a non-view room. Our daughter appreciates the pool and we like the hottub, even if you have to run across the parking lot to get there. The rooms are adequately furnished and the location outstanding. Being able to take the family dogs is also a plus, and they like hanging out on the balcony when we're in the room. It couldn't be much closer to the beach, and we enjoy the sound and smell all the more by often keeping the door to the balcony open. I'd definitely go for the oceanfront rooms, which don't cost that much more. In general, I don't see much point in going to the beach if you can't enjoy the view.

Room Tip: Definitely go oceanfront, 2nd level best, away from the staircase might be quieter.

Sigh, i hate writing bad reviews. This place was terrible. The room was $78.00 a night, so i didnt go in with high expectations, i just wanted to stay somewhere on the beach, which was beautiful. Walking into our room the door opens up and almost hits the bed. The room is very small, my husband and I had to take turns on passing in the bathroom hallway. In order to get into our room, you have to open the door and step into the bathroom almost, turn around and the close the door, and only then can you get to your bed. Right outside out window is a giant propane tank. They allow fire on the beach. All it takes is one idiot and we are toast. The walls are very thin, we heard a fellow guests TV all night. The bed was terribly uncomfortable and small. The comforter was thin and we quite cold all night, also the pillows have had one to many heads lay on it. They were so thin it was like cuddling up with a hoodie bunched into a ball. It was a scary night. Hearing people talk, and do "other things"...(hint hint) Sleeping next to a propane tank, doors slamming. It wasnt the greatest night sleep. You get what you pay for.
