Quiet, great rates, clean rooms with full ocean view! Staff was nice and we will return again. The room was basic, no frills. We had some issues with slow wifi, but overall a pleasant and satisfactory stay.

My husband and I stay here every January as a modestly priced treat. Would not stay anywhere else. A very nice place and right next to the beach. Beautiful sunset if lucky and storm clouds if less lucky.

My husband and I love, love, love this place. We went there for our honeymoon 15 years ago, and we frequently return there. It is perfect for a family get away with kids and dogs in tow, or cozy husband/wife romantic retreat. The staff is always so friendly.

They called it a sleeper with no view, located in the Budd building on the first floor. It was adjoined to another larger room that was ocean front... More

Love this place! Nothing fancy! Great views. Some units have kitchens. We prefer to stay in the Budd building. I have been coming here for years. It is a close walk to restaurants and shops. Plus the beach access is great! You just walk across the street.

This is an older, mom-and-pop kind of motel in a sleepy beach town about 20 miles south of Seaside, Oregon. The rooms are updated, well-equipped, and scrupulously clean. I have stayed there many times dating back to more than 25 years ago, and it keeps getting better. It's a good bargain if one avoids the few busy times (basically summer... More
