Stayed for one night in the Nostalgia Room. Such a lovely room with interesting memorabilia and a side view of the ocean from the deck. Very atmospheric with a good clean bathroom and an easy walk down to the fantastic beach. Very good value.

I'm so happy we found this motel on Tripadvisor! We stayed in the Oregon Room with a separate bedroom - it was spacious and had everything we needed. We absolutely loved the deck and view of the beach and lighthouse, and the beach itself was gorgeous. The service was very friendly. The beds were comfortable and we had a wonderful...

I came to visit my parents and have returned every year ! It is an amazing beach motel with breathtaking sunsets ..beautiful patios to relax on and the beach is secluded and several miles if you like to walk!

That's what staying here is about. The rooms are themed and quirky, we had the Camelot room. The bed is massive. The room was clean. The price is reasonable. The whole point of staying here though is to sit on your deck and look at the ocean, sleep with your door open and listen to it. Amazing. Whale watch at...

This is what I've always dreamed Oregon would be like… First time here. We stayed two nights in the nostalgia room. The old-fashioned radio on the table… Works. Fun to listen to the local radio station and their oldies. The weather was chilly for July… So we thoroughly enjoyed having the cozy fireplace to chill and drink a bottle of...

We stayed in the "Hunting Lodge" room. It was very well decorated with lots of hunting and fishing items, and lots of dust on those items higher up. Was nice to have two rooms with two tv's so my traveling companion and I could have some alone time. The deck was great and the view wonderful. It's amazing how blue...

Got this room last minute on 4th of July weekend. I paid about half what I expected for a beachfront motel. All the rooms have different themes. We had the Whaler Room. Its window faces NW. It was a bit smaller and more rustic than the others but very nice and well decorated. I was able to look at one...

Tried to book a room here, the lady was very rude on the phone to me.... gave me the "you don't realize how good we are... of course we have no rooms" speech, very rude. Even hung up on me when I said, okay, thank you. Won't go back.

Hello and thank you for letting us know about your experience. We do tend to fill up fast this time of year with only 12 rooms but there was no excuse for our agent to speak to you like that. We are very sorry and will be addressing this issue immediately. We hope you will give us another chance in...

We just returned from 5 nights staying in the Hawaiian Room #10 B. There isn't a better location or view to enjoy the ocean than this. The beach is remote due to limited access and, except for the waves, it was quiet. Our room has a small kitchen with a real coffee pot and a small refrigerator. There is a...
