Very warm and comfortable. Extremely helpful desk staff. Great location on Avenue U (most crowds and congested shopping on Avenue A). Motel 2 blocks from the beach with great views of the ocean. Will definitely be back.

Our room had no Kleenex, no microwave, no closet or space for clothes. The beds were only halfway made on our last night of the stay. We were allowed one bar of soap and the sink and bathtub are not in the same room. The beds were very hard and uncomfortable. The floors are uneven and the room has a...

The location is just a block from the beach. Nice staff that are very accommodating. The bed is comfortable. Restaurants near by within walking distance. The rooms are small. They are decorated cute, personal touches. Small flat screen TV with a VCR player. Free WI-FI. Rooms have small refrigerator & microwave.The rooms could use some upgrading and maintenance work.

Only a short block to the beach and promenade that runs along the beach. The town is wonderful with a lot of eating opportunities. Room was clean, quiet, and pet friendly. Each room has a theme. Ours was "Silver Screen", so we had a really great mural on the wall of movie stars of the 30's, and had interior decorations...

The woman at the front desk was so kind. They have a good collection of VHS tapes in the lobby, helpful maps and some other random stuff you may need. The themed rooms are so cute.

This motel is close to the ocean, has been remodeled and has something I have not seen in motels in the past. There is a curtain hanging between the bed and the bathroom so if someone is sleeping, someone else can be using the bathroom, sitting and drinking coffee or getting ready for the day!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sandy Cove Inn is a family-owned boutique motel located two blocks from the beach and promenade in historic Seaside, Oregon. We are on the quiet end of town but still very close to the town’s attractions, and we combine the personal touch with modern conveniences like free WiFi and some pet-friendly rooms.We have everything from basic rooms to vacation rentals, and with both a market and restaurant just across the street, we are the perfect place for a fun, peaceful stay on the Oregon Coast.We even have themed rooms like the Wave Room with surf art, a wave mural and an actual surfboard; there’s also a 1940s Room, a Monopoly Room, and a Boat Room, among several others.We’re one of the last family-owned motels in town, and that means a lot to us; in fact, we live right here on the property. We will share some of our favorite activities and places to eat with you, and we can’t wait to make you feel at home in our home. ... more   less
