“Can't Stay Away!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Decided on a whim to go back to Seaside for Memorial Day weekend to do some razor clamming, so called Sandy Cove Inn and got the Beach room again. The grandkids just love the decor! The staff there is ALWAYS friendly and helpful. Having the little market right across the street is great because we can get milk, cereal and fruit for breakfast and the room has a fridge, microwave and eating utensils so we are all set! Razor clamming was fun even tho it rained and was windy. We also went to the aquarium there, which we love and hit up the antique stores. Each visit to Seaside is a treasure to us!

We were only here for a night, but were very happy with the accommodations. The room was nice, the staff was pleasant and the property was great. It is about 2 blocks from the beach, and a 60 second walk or so. We had 5 adults in one room, the "Kids" room, and it ended up being a great deal. Although, I would't want to stay in those close of quarters for more than a couple nights!

The only downside was that the cable was pretty fuzzy, but hey, we weren't there for the TV!

We will definitely stay here next time we are in Seaside!

We stayed in room 23 and it was very well put together. This is a great location close to the beach and across the street from a great restaurant and pub and also a coffee shop. We love this area of Seaside, it is very quiet and comfortable. You won't be disappointed with the your stay at SandyCove Inn. The front desk staff are amazing and very helpful!

Room Tip: Book a room, sit back and relax after a smooth bike ride down the boardwalk.

You cannot beat this place for value for money - it is exceptionally cheap......but prior to booking I exchanged emails with staff about the ability to accommodate a family of 6 and was told what room to book (the beach room) which I did. Only problem was that it did not accommodate 6 people and they had to squeeze into bunks together but for the price we paid we let it go without complaint. I guess my issue is that if the room does not accommodate 6 people I would refer to be told and I would have looked elsewhere - larger groups / families beware.

The room itself is fine - neat, clean and tidy but a bit dated. When I say dated I mean dated..... my kids were bemused using a VHS video recorder and tapes for the first time and the TV was straight from the 80's..... I guess this is part of the charm of the place.

As indicated by others staff very friendly and helpful.

Location cannot be beaten, the Inn is very close to the beach and the promenade which are both well worth a look. Others have recommended the pub across the road as a dinner option. The pub is great and has a wide range of beers on tap and staff friendly but this is a burger/fries option only if you want something more substantial look elsewhere.

I have no major problems with this accommodation it would be great for smaller groups and couples it was simply too small for us.

Room Tip: This hotel does not cater for 6 in a room despite what they may tell you.

This is such a nice and quaint inn. The decor and cleanliness stands out the best. We have the "Sweet" with a second story balcony that looks at the ocean (which is a couple of short blocks away). The staff is friendly and helpful. I like it because it is not on the crowded side of town. I highly recommend this delightful comfortable inn.

We booked the classic games room. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They got bonus points for having two VHS copies of the goonies available for in room viewing. I saved 10% by checking in on foursquare. We will definitely stay at the SandyCove Inn during our next trip to Seaside.

Room Tip: The classic gaming room has plenty of entertainment.

Clean room and very helpful staff. Maria was wonderfully, recommended places to eat and fun things to do in the area. After a long day of driving, this was a nice, inexpensive place to stay. Located away from the crowds, with a short drive to the promenade and downtown. We would definitely stay there again. No air conditioner, but it was cool enough with the window open.
