“Nice place for weekend getaway; room needs a little TLC.”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Long Beach isn't the easiest place to reach from Seattle, but it is worth the drive. The peninsula is a very special place, especially in the natural setting and wildlife on both the ocean and bay sides. I loved our afternoon visit to Oysterville, which is one of the oldest settled towns in the state. And the seafood here - oysters, clams, crabs - is incomparable.

Lighthouse Resort has a beautiful setting and the ocean front units are arranged in a ziggurat so every unit has a view. The second floor view is a bit better since it sees over the dunes to the ocean, but the first floor is fine too, and a less expensive rate.

The unit was comfortable, particularly the bed and bed linens. The management needs, however, to monitor closely the upkeep of the unit. There were burn marks on the kitchen counter (perhaps recent), the light bulbs could be brighter, and the heating fixtures look worn. There were two mediocre pictures in the living room but the bedroom was a bit stark without anything on the walls. This critique is more a future admonition, since if they don't keep the room appointments updated, the unit quality could decline in future seasons (fix the kitchen counter burn marks!).

Service at the check-in side was excellent, and the Saturday late afternoon wine and cheese social was an unexpected treat. But service for the unit was a bit spotty. Some kitchen items were strangely supplied - like only a single placemat and only three forks. We requested additional towels but were told they were low on the supply and none were provided. They could use fluffier towels too. Again, these are mild warning signs and easily corrected by the resort. Overall, this was a fine accommodation, but the units needs a little tender living care.

We checked in and they had a dog bed ready as well as treats for our dog. The salt water swimming pool is great as well as the hot tub. If I were a tennis player I would have been in heaven as their facility is state of the art and beautiful. There is a pro on staff for lessons. The entire staff was very friendly and full of tips on where to eat and best things to do in town.

Room Tip: The beach in front of the condos is the best beach in Washington.

This hotel is actually a group of condos with an ocean view. There are one or 2-3 bedroom units, each with it's own kitchen and couch with a pull out bed. Each unit also has a living room with a porch and view of the ocean. Easy beach access, just walk across the dunes to a beautiful stretch of sandy beach. My husband and I love long beach and go at least twice a year and we always stay at the lighthouse. There is even a pool and tennis courts and a basket ball hoop. They are also very dog friendly, and what dog doesn't enjoy the beach! I highly recommend this hotel, in any season it is a home away from home.

Room Tip: Pay a little more for the premium ocean view rooms and you won't be disappointed

We reserved the one bedroom "mother-in-law" unit atop the storage garage near the drive where you turn in off the highway. It was convenient for us, and meant that if our dog cried in her kennel when we went out to dinner, she would not disturb others. The unit was upstairs (no wheelchair access) had a full kitchen, one bathroom with a shower (no tub) and bedroom with a queen bed and enormous closet. In fact, the closet could actually be additional sleeping space for kids and would accomodate a queen sized air bed or about 4 sleeping bags - no kidding!

This unit is not ocean front, but we knew that prior to reserving. When we wanted to go to the beach, we loaded our dog in the car and drove up the driveway a long bit to get to the area near the other newer units which are considered ocean front. There is a long path through the grass and trees to get to the beach, so don't expect to step out onto the beach from your unit. We had read other reviews in advance of making our reservation, so knew all of this. We were pleased with the accommodations, had no trouble at all accessing the free wifi, and enjoyed our time here. We will be back! Do go to Jimella's Market Cafe for dinner in Ocean Park ( a short drive) and avoid the Crab Pot in Long Beach - you'll be glad you did.

This was it fourth stay at the Lighthouse and I am already looking forward to our next. Each oceanfront unit has a beautiful view of the sea, and it is a very short walk to the beach. The units are equipped with well supplied kitchens (just add food) and comfy furnishings; each has a sleeper sofa in addition to the private bedrooms, 1, 2, or 3. One of the senior staff informed me that the beds were all getting an upgrade to premium bedding this next month, and larger televisions were on their way. There was a free wine social on Saturday evening allowing guests to mingle.

In my opinion this is a terrific place for a relaxing getaway, or a great place for a family holiday. It is pet friendly, so the whole clan can enjoy.

I spent a weekend here in May and found the Premium 3 Bedroom unit to be perfect for 5 of us, it felt like a little apartment. The property is in good repair, staff is friendly, wifi worked well and the free wine reception was great.

This was a charming place to stay, we felt really comfortable!

Stayed here for one night with my best friend in the whole wide world and my mom. It was FANTASTIC! Would stay here again! The place was spacious and clean! We LOVED the fireplace in our family room! It was chilly and windy on the beach and it was great to come back to a fireplace. ONLY DOWNSIDE!!!!...They advertise WiFi but we didn't get a signal and we were close to the main office.
