I took a chance with this place thinking I might regret it because it was cheaper than the others. But it was perfect. Nothing fancy. The inside looks better than the outside. My son and I had a good time on the beach (before it started raining), which is right out the door. We enjoyed the TV and the fireplace...

Quint but wonderful! It's not the Ritz, but if you want beach-front fun, then this is a wonderful place! Pluses: the beach access. Oh yeah. You are on the beach. Kitchens. Tiny and cramped (the coffee maker was on top of the microwave, you had to WANT that coffee!!) but, hey, it is a kitchen. Has a pool and hot...

I found this motel through Trip Advisor and the ratings were good, but I was still skeptical because the price was so good for this beachfront motel. However, I was thrilled with our stay! This is an older motel and wasn't fancy, but was super clean, nicely updated and perfect for a stay at the beach. All the rooms have...

My husband and I stayed several nights and absolutely loved our room. Quaint and comfy with a king bed and fireplace. Very clean. The office staff was very friendly and helpful in making suggestions on where to eat and sites to see or activities to do. Was one of the few places on the beach with direct access. The room...

Very clean rooms and balcony. The balcony is not private. But free if seagull poo. Very affordable and worth a stay. Good for familys. Great views and location. Pool was cool and hot tub not quite as hot as we like but it was nice to soak in. The big plus is the pool and hot tub have a view...

We stayed for two nights thanks to a Groupon. We had a King bed, balcony, fireplace and a gorgeous view. The room is a little tired and kind of cramped but very clean and very serviceable. We lucked out with two sunny days and had a fantastic sunset. During high tide, the water comes almost to the edge of the...

We have stayed at this motel multiple times before. You can't beat the location and the price is well below what you will pay to stay on the beach at a different property. The rooms are not as fancy as other places, but they are clean. The fireplaces are nice, as are the rooms with balconies. We stayed in room...

The Sandcastle has become my go to place to stay in Lincoln City. Every room has an ocean view, which is great because let's face it, that's what we're here for, and there is easy beach access from the motel. The Sandcastle has a great location at the south end of Lincoln City away from the tourist traps, traffic, and...

This place is wonderful. Right on the beach for plenty of ocean-watching action. During high tides, the water can come all the way up to the seawall right in front of the motel. During real low tides, there are many rocks with tidepools within walking distance. Motel staff have always been helpful and courteous. Some of the furniture is worn...

You get what you pay for... Although, the property and beach access is amazing! I wasn't to pleased that you have to leave a tip for the housekeepers. And the shower had no head so the water pressure was nuts. Great location.
