“Fine Stay - Nice People”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Small motel with drive up rooms. Check in was fine and the lady was friendly - she checked out a DVD player for us as our room didn’t have one. It was nice of her to mention their availability. It feels as though the motel was built in the 70s as there is vinyl floor in the bathroom ais a lot of grungy discolored caulk all around the baseboards and in front of the tub. There is a small vanity sink with limited landing space in our room and (a basic king). There is a metal strip separating the vinyl bathroom floor from the laminate in the bedroom area that has screws that are very uncomfortable under foot. There is no closet, per se, just a metal shelf screwed into the wall on the same wall as the desk and TV. There is a nice large flat screen TV in the room and an upholstered chair you can sit in for viewing.

I found the room (floor) to be unpleasant underfoot - it is an inexpensive laminate that felt gritty. There were lots of long black hairs on the bathroom floor that were not ours and the laminate floor was generally dirty. The bed slept fine and the sheets were very soft and comfortable. There is no AC but being coastal it probably isn’t needed - we did not open our windows the first night and got a little warm but all was better the second. The internet was very nice and speedy.

The owners are a friendly young couple and I interacted with one other employee (at check in). It seems the owners handle all of the cleaning of the rooms and light maintenance - hich is a tall order for two people. They had coffee available in the lobby in the morning that was tasty and hot and you can make waffles. They also offered bananas. I saw no juice or other items for breakfast but I was happy with the waffle and banana.

I think with a little attention paid to improving the bathroom and ensuring the floor are mopped after each guest will be huge improvements. I’d like to rate this motel higher than average but it just wasn’t there. They have Red Vines in the lobby except at breakfast time and cookies in the afternoon which is a nice touch.

My wife and I drove to Long Beach not planning to stay but when we made that decision, I started checking out the local hotels/motels in Long Beach. Upon the recommendation of a clerk at the local museum (more of a tourist gift shop than museum) we walked down to the Coastal Inn to see about getting a room for one night. Joshua who owns the motel was able to find a room on the 1st floor with a King (my wife has trouble with stairs) and boy were we ever surprised when we got to our room. The room was clean ans fresh, and it also was equipped with a large flat screen with cable TV and very comfortable. Price was far better than i had hoped so with Joshua being very helpful and accommodating we will definitely make this our place to stay in Long Beach WA. Didn't have a pool but with the beach and shops so close, we didn't care!! AWESOME!!!

Room Tip: The room we had was on the first floor an off the main street so very quiet.

Green Features: We appreciated that our room had laminate flooring instead of carpet which made it look and feel so much cleaner and with the leave your towels on the rack to reuse policy, we know that they are doing their part for the earth.

We stayed here on our Washington and Oregon Coast trip and found it fantastic, reasonably priced, and close to the beach as well as all of the other attractions in Long Beach. The couple who own and run the Coastal Inn & Suites are very knowledgeable about the area and did a great job of answering our questions and making us feel welcome and right at home from the moment we arrived. They have also done a beautiful job renovating the rooms and do a wonderful job of keeping everything spotless. We had one of the basic rooms: not only did it have the usual furnishings (bed, table, tv, etc.), but also a mini-fridge and microwave which are nice touches since I usually have leftovers when we eat out. In the morning, we had complementary you-cook waffles for breakfast which was yet another nice touch. We took our waffles back to our room since there was nowhere to sit in the office where the waffle maker is at, but the rooms are all very close to the office so who cares. We only stayed for one night, but we will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: All of the rooms have a mini-fridge and microwave= no worries about what to do with any extra food w...

My crew of marine biologists and I must spend time working along the Long Beach Peninsula, Washington several days each year. We have found a great place to stay at this classic beach motel. The owners are “hands-on” operators who always go out of their way to accommodate our needs and make us feel like we are almost at home. The rooms are very clean and the grounds are very tidy. With each visit we find yet another improvement as this young energetic couple work to make this business successful. If you are looking for five star accommodations…keep moving. However, if you are looking a clean and comfortable base for your visit and for a friendly faces who truly appreciate your business really want to make you happy…then stop by and see if you can prove me wrong. One suggestion…spring for the extra bucks to enjoy the larger suites on the upper floor.

Room Tip: choose a suite with a full kitchen on the upper floor.

We rolled into town looking for a hotel to stay in because our original plans didn't work out, and decided to take a chance on this hotel after looking at several others. We didn't regret it. The rooms were extremely clean and and the owners were very nice and helpful.

This is not a chain hotel, so you may not find all the 'necessities' that come with those, for example in room phone or lots of furniture. That said, this is definitely one of the better hotels we've stayed in. The cleanliness surpasses what we've seen even in certain "high end" hotels (which shall remain unnamed). The rooms are not large, but they are not cluttered with unnessary and useless furniture and the space is well used so the size really isn't a problem. There were a lot of nice personal touches that you won't find from a chain, for example the towels folded into an elephant after they made the bed. The owners seem to take a good deal of pride in their hotel, and it shows.

We will most definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Coastal Inn in the Captain's Quarters with 2 adults, 2 kids and one dog. The suite is clean and modern with one large bedroom that has a king bed and a great room area with a living/dining area (including full kitchen). The kids used the day bed and the pull out sofa. (FYI, the bathroom can only be accessed by going through the bedroom which could be a little weird for some).

The location is right in the heart of Downtown Long Beach, so that is a real plus if you want to leave the car and just bump around town. You can walk to the beach pretty easily (5-10 minute walk). I would say the one negative to being right in downtown is you also get a lot of street noise (at least we did being right on the corner of the property). Whether that is a deal breaker for you just depends on what you are looking for on your trip.

The owners of the place are very nice and accommodating and if we needed something they were available and helpful.

My husband and I (and our 2 dogs) went to Long Beach to celebrate our 5th anniversary. When I was looking for a place to stay was looking for someplace reasonably priced that accepted pets and had a king sized bed. Was very happy with our stay. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. I really liked that the room had wood type flooring instead of carpet especially with dogs and they provided a broom in the room so I could easily sweep up sand (and dog hair). The couple that runs the inn was always so friendly (even gave the dogs a few treats which they LOVED!) and always seemed to be smiling. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to going back.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 12 -- I really liked that it was on the ground floor and there was an empty lot ac...
