We chose this motel due to the reviews on TripAdvisor. The place is rundown and filthy. As soon as we checked into room 12, we were almost overwhelmed by the smell of dead mice. I checked the entire room but never found one or a mouse trap for that matter so they must have died in the walls. While looking... More

Port Orford is an exceptional place, the ocean bay is lovely and the hotel nearly faces the morning sun which is very unusual for the West Coast. But the room lacked basics like shampoo, a coffee maker and a small frig. Since the only decent coffee is two blocks away we really missed in-room tea and coffee. The bed was... More

We had a large room + conservatory complete with rocking chair. It was fairly basic but clean and a wonderful view. Rockney was very laid back and friendly. It was well located everything in the town was walking distance. Good value.

This is a quaint little hotel overlooking the bay. Absolutely beautiful view of the bay from your very own back patio or sliding glass door on the bottom floor. There were only two separate families staying at the hotel so all was very quiet. This is a pet friendly hotel. The owner was very friendly and helpful. There are no... More

Stopped here on an overnight drive up the coast and totally loved it. Rockne and his cat 'keeper' met us and made us feel at home. He recommended Griffs on the dock below for a fish dinner which worked out just great. We had a wonderful view over the bay, grey whales spouting in the bay both in the evening... More

Three things I think we are all looking for in a place to stay... for it to be clean, a good nights sleep and a nice hot shower. Well this place falls short but with little or no other choices I cannot tell you to pass it by. The owners was friendly and helpful and the place was well kept... More

Castaway By the Sea has a beautiful location overlooking the bay and unique fishing dock below. Our host, Rockne Berge, was very kind and helpful, not only with our reservation but also with understanding our itinerary and offering up suggestions based on his intimate knowledge of the coastline region. He's also a talented photographer, by the way, and in the... More

We have stayed here in the past and look forward to our next stay next week! The owners are awesome and really make you feel at home. The place has incredible views and is off the highway 101 about 1/4 mile.

This is a unique place to stay. Perched high above the port, with incredible views of the ocean. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Although we were there during a blustery storm, we could see all of Mother Nature's wild ways while feeling snug and cozy. Proprietor is as unique as the property, laid back and welcoming.

This is an older hotel but the location makes up for any concerns about the age of the facilities. The view is the BEST! My wife and I sat in the sun room and watched the whales in the bay. Not many places you can do that for the price we paid to stay here. I would stay here again.
