Everything was great. Only minor issue was the non functioning VCR.

Thanks for visiting us! Sorry about the VHS machine - every once in awhile they misbehave but Mike can usually get them to mind for him so next time give us a shout if you have an issue! Hope to see you again soon.

This is my second time to stay at the Sandy Cove. Rooms are very clean and I especially like the personal touch in the decore. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I will stay there again.

Room Tip: It's fun to select a room here. They're all decorated with a different theme. I just go to...

We have stayed here twice and both times were amazing. Friendly staff, fun and beautiful rooms. Only a few blocks from the beach and about a mile from downtown. We took our bikes and rode every where. The Jacuzzi suite was perfect for our romantic getaway. Already planning out next trip.

The "wave room" where we stayed was pretty but what really impressed me was the service . At check in , the front desk personnel verbalized that he was there for us 24/7 and to call him anytime we needed anything because it is not a bother and he will address our concerns the best that he could . He said this with sincerity . When we got to our room , I noticed that there was no microwave . So I asked if there was one anywhere in the inn that maybe we can use . He offered to get one for us and within minutes brought one in to our room personally . And at no extra charge . We have been travelling for days and some of the "bigger chain hotels" we stayed at did not have "the heart" that this hotel has . Service not only in words but in deed !

Price was excellent & accepted our small dog with out having to take him with us each time we went someplace. Some places require you never leave a dog alone. Ours is crate trained & quiet. So we were very comfortable with the arrangements. Management was friendly as all get out. Room was as described which I call frugal but very clean. They have other rooms with more [stuff] but this was our choice & we were very comfortable. 2 blocks from a wonderful beach & promanade walkway. Close to places to eat & shop. Office had lots of info for visitors. Recommend!!!

Room Tip: Be sure & check the website to see the many levels of rooms & what they offer. That way no s...

I was working in Seaside last year and stayed at Sandy Cove for five days. I loved the ambiance of the "Gertie" room and the friendliness of the staff. I still feel the same, but my stay this time was unpleasant. My problem was a noisy neighbor. He kept his TV blaring until after midnight and then stomped around early next morning. I guess I didn't understand, with so few people in your hotel last Monday, why you placed clients so close together. I know these things (noisy guests) happen, but you would lessen the odds if you spaced people as far away as possible. Thanks for listening.

One of the things we love most about our motel is that people request specific rooms now – everyone has their favorite themed room they want to stay in. However one of the difficulties of room requests is that sometimes even when the motel is quiet, people get put next to each other. We have never been able to say “no” to a room request just because someone else is staying next door. It’s a tricky situation!

We are grateful that you have become a repeat customer of ours. Perhaps next time you visit you can stay in the Jacuzzi Suite – it’s our quietest room. Thanks for taking the time leave feedback – we really appreciate it!

We brought our 2 children to Seaside for the very first time and had a ball! While they were hoping for a large hotel with a swimming pool, we opted for something cozy and quaint with a more reasonable price... and it payed off! Sandy Cove Inn is a cute place with tons of personality! From the doggy water bowl outside the front door to the polite person at the front desk, we felt right at home! The room was clean and comfortable. Having a small grocery store across the street was helpful. And last but not least, the pub across the street (which is very kid friendly) has FABULOUS food! Our children didn't mention a pool one time after checking in! We would definately stay here again!

I'm SO glad you all had such a great time. That makes us smile. Next time you visit, be sure to take your kids to the city pool - it's fantastic! Seaside's city pool offers two pools, a slide, a climbing wall, a rope swing and a large jacuzzi. It's a nice alternative when staying at a motel like ours that doesn't have a pool. Hope to see you again soon!
