This is a great little motel with a wonderful location. Our room was on the ground floor with a deck comfy bed. Very clean, great value. Owners are really the nicest people very accomodating. View is incredible, you will need to navigate a steep stairway to access the beach but it is right there on property, or just sit on...

This is an older hotel but was clean, had comfortable beds and amazing views. We had a bottom floor room with a deck that overlooked the beach. It was wonderful to fall asleep to the loud rumble of the Pacific. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Our room was upstairs, no elevator. The room had no air conditioning, and no screen on the window for fresh air. We found things to do to keep us out of the room because it was so hot. It was nice to be right on the beach with steep stairs. Not very many people so that was a plus. It...

MammaTracy Thank you for your business and I am sorry you were so warm. We don't have screens on the windows as there are no bugs and it allows you to open the window and experience the full effect of the ocean air. No, we don't have air conditioning as we are on the coast and no need for air...

I am in utter disbelief. HORRIBLE BUSINESS PRACTICES! WARNING ABOUT THIS MOTEL. My family and I have been spending our money staying at Sailor Jack for YEARS now. We've always had wonderful experiences with past management (who live onsite). So much so, that we've been greeted by name upon check-in and always were accommodated. Last year my husband and I...

ErTr55, well first, you should actually write a TRUTHFUL review. When you did not show up for your reservation, you did not call or let us know that you were having car trouble and just did not show up and it's our policy to charge the first night, which we did. The next morning, you called me and were screaming...

What a find! A few dozen steps down to a very long beach. We watched whales from the beach and our room. Coffee is available but no breakfast. Lots of options on the main drag. Bed was fine. Good selection of movies with some quite new releases for small charge. Not fancy but the view is priceless.

I was checked in by a wonderful lady named Lori/Laurie. She was very quick and informative but what I was impressed with was when I was waiting for her attention. The gentleman ahead of me asked for wine glasses for his room, which she quickly produced. He also asked for a few more items and asked what was the charge...

The view from our room was absolutely beautiful! Being "older" and having back & leg problems, we asked for a ground floor room. We didn't get it, but managed to make it up there okay. My biggest complaint though was that the room did not have air conditioning and it was stuffy and very warm.

The waves will rock you to sleep. For oceanview, try 2nd floor or above. We had a two queen room. Bathroom is a little small, but more than adequate. Room has fridge, microwave, DVD player as well as flat screen TV. Great value for the price.

This place was excellent from the location to the view. I upgraded us to a king room and we had third floor right in the beach with a great water view. The staff was pleasant and helpful. I got some exquisite pictures from the room of the sun setting on the water. The room was totally equipped with a refrigerator,...
