Great location on the bay (but almost everything is in Sekiu); very limited view unless you stay in one of the two largest rooms on the waterfront end of the building. Room was very clean and had all linens, as well as a two burner stove top, mini fridge, microwave, coffee pot, a few dishes, some utensils, and a few...

It's a fishing camp/Hotel, not a five star resort, so come with that in mind. The Room and linens where clean although furniture a bit dated and the staff friendly and help full with questions, and Ice. Good place to stop over to see Flattery Point.

A great spot for a stop over near Neah Bay! Great customer service!!! Wonderful view on our deck overlooking the water! We sat on our deck watched a beautiful sunrise and had coffee while watching the Eagles overhead! Will definitely be visiting again!!

We knew when we booked here that it was not a luxury resort, but rather a fishing resort. We did not go for fishing ,but rather a location to explore Cape Flattery. We were not disappointed. We had a very small unit, but it was had the essentials. The staff was very friendly.

My daughter and I arrived with no gear during the Pink Salmon season start. VanRipers made it easy to rent a small boat, poles & a net that got used. Staff gave us good tips, we got up early an boated 7 out of 14 hits. We had a very memorable 24 hours at Sekiu Bay VanRipers resort. The kitchenette...

We drove through on the weekend after July 4th. Turned out the town put on another fireworks display - we were in. We randomly selected Van Riper's based on the vacancy sign but we were pleased with the room which was more like a small apartment. It has a small stocked kitchen and microwave, TV, shower and two beds. We...

The rv park is crouded. I rented their boat and motor. The motor failed within the first hour. NO REFUND. My day of fishing was ruined. My wife and I could have ended up in the Pacific Ocean. It took me 2 hour to get the boat back to the dock. The owner/ wife said "You took the boat out...

Great for six adults and one kiddo! We stayed in the penthouse suite, and the full kitchen was a big help! Great fishing, great memories made on a family trip with adult kiddos, spouses and one grandchild. Room was comfortable, clean and just perfect after a long day on the water! Will return!

The room was clean, the bed was clean, the view of the bay is gorgeous- complete with Bald Eagles and Blue Herons with the constant squawking of sea gulls. Fine for one night but you could hear the softest conversation next door....so bring earplugs. We knew what to expect from reading the reviews.

We just got back from a fantastic 4 days in Sekiu. The Van Riper's resort was 100% better than the one we stayed at last year. It is CLEAN, the kitchen utensils are up to date, the stove worked great and did not feel like you were going to electrocute yourself by using it. New microwave and clean floors and...
