This was a perfect size "apartment". With a functional kitchen, large frig,micro,etc. Large living room, great bed, clean and well appointed...and that glassed in sun deck with views of the working port and the ocean! Perfect. Wifi fast,and cable TV okay. Off the highway, easy walk into town or the commercial port. Only downside was the noise from the neighbors....

This place is right on the water overlooking Port Orford's port which is fascinating in itself. The room was large and comfortable and there was a glassed in porch in which to sit and watch the port doings. We wished there had been in-room coffee but the management made sure there was plenty of hot coffee in the office early...

The space I stayed in was two floors, with a loft with two beds and a main with a bedroom, kitchen, living room, bath and a covered porch. The covered porch overlooks the bay, affording a spectacular view with comfortable seating. There is a dock below and you can watch the fishing boats being lifted out of the water for...

For the reasons you'll read in other reviews, we love this place and the folks who run it, and then there is the fact that we have seen the facilities improve from one visit to the next-upgrades in the beds especially. (Yes, we have stayed at Castaway by the Sea a number of times, and plan to return in late...

This place was a welcome surprise on our trip down the west coast! The owner was awesome and took us in to see the unit we were in. WOW!! It was beautiful! It was like an apartment, complete with kitchen, living room AND an enclosed room out front, with a lot of windows, looking out on the ocean ! OH...

Okay you're in central Oregon. Not many choices. But this place works just fine. Rooms are spacious and clean. Came with small kitchen, a back porch and nice views of the port. Staff friendly. Room coffee is good. Nice price. What more could you need?

We found this place at the end of a long day of travel and were thrilled with the view. Sitting on a southerly facing bluff, you can see down the coast for many miles. Unfortunately, that's the best thing we can say about this motel. We were on the lower level and there is no window to the outside; your...

My husband and I fell in love with this inn. We were delighted to happen upon this gem of a place as we drove southward on 101. High on the hill directly overlooking the sea at an affordable price and comfortable accommodations was all we could ask for and more. The view there never stops. Walking the beach, whale watching,...

Our room was ready early and we had lots of time to explore Port Orford and the area. Don't miss the Coast Guard Museum and trails on the headland. Griff's on the Dock a good choice for seafood dinner. Room was big, microwave, coffee at the office, big handy ice machine. No fridge but we had a cooler so just...

We stayed in a two level "condo" with another couple. View really is better than the pic on the website. Place was spacious (glassed in porch, living room, small dining area, and kitchen in addition to one BR + huge loft BR) and clean if a little shopworn. It is w/i walking distance of one of the beaches, the dock,...
