Debra once again was warn and welcoming. She has great attention to detail in this sweet efficiency motel. Basic kitchen with comfy items to feel at home. Love how it is off the beaten path but easy access to the town. Charming....

I found this old fashioned motel to be quite relaxing and comfortable. The small motel is like stepping back in time. The managers were very friendly and helpful and my room was spotless and quiet. Just a few steps from the ocean and a short drive to down town cannon beach. I will look forward to a return trip.

This small rustic inn is the place to stay when you want a room within walking distance of the beach yet quiet and off the beaten track. Our room was clean and peaceful. The hosts were friendly and accommodating.

We stayed here on a tour of Oregon while visiting Cannon Beach. This hotel has everything you need for a quick beach trip. The owner is friendly and attentive while giving you space. You can walk to one of the best parts of the Cannon Beach area, the quieter south side with unbelievable views.

A perfect find for our needs. When we first drove up I was disappointed we weren't directly on the water, but within a very short time, this charming quiet spot had won me over. The amazing beach at the end of the street is mesmerizing and the water is visible from right outside the door of our cozy suite room...

The only downside of this small place is that you really have to drive to get to the town (unless you are up for an hour's walk, one way). The inn consists of only five units on a street that has easy access to the beach, in an area that is much less busy than further north. There is even...

Stayed here overnight while driving up the coast. Walked on the beach before sunrise and took the most awesome photos. One of my favorite memories of the trip - watching The Goonies with my adult children while staying at Cannon Beach. Owner was friendly, warm, helpful and our room was perfect.

We have stayed here with family for over 5 years. We usually take two rooms; one with kitchenette and one without. It works great for our group of 4. The inn makes a great "cheap and cheerful" place to stay. They have spent the money on what counts feather beds and quality sheets. The owners are cheerful, helpful and cat...

We have been staying here for several years and we love the seclusion and peace and quite of this quaint and charming little motel. The staff are super friendly and the rooms are nice and clean. The kitchenettes are great. The beach is a short stroll down the street and is usually less crowded then towards town. The free wifi...
