Homey, quiet, great view of the ocean. Manager was friendly and professional.

The view was beautiful from our room. The small kitchen in the room saved us money on eating our.

I liked the fire place and big windows good view of oceans.

Wonderful staff! They were very helpful in accommodating us with a room change so we could bring our dogs!

Only one slight hickup was on the day we were going to checkout the cleaning started early next door and in front of our door primarily vacuuming which was pretty loud. Otherwise great stay

Gorgeous view, clean, comfy rooms, and friendly staff! Loved our stay, will definitely be back!!!!

The beds were so comfortable!! And a choice of nice pillows! View is great!! Staff are very friendly and accommodating. 2 complaints, the first minor. One of the stove burners didn't work, but I had 3 others to choose from. And the office closes at 10 pm, though if you are going to be late and let them know ahead of time they will accommodate. Overall a very nice stay .

Room was a little dated. The view was great and the bed was great.

Arrived after sunset, staff was cheerful and friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. Very close to beach.

Very basic for the price. Not a good value. Room did not match picture (only one small window). Very dated and semi-clean; wifi only good for low speed use- cannot stream. Worked for our purpose for a quick night to go fishing, but was hoping for something nicer for the price. Could have found any number of other dated motels for less money, but thought this was going to be much nicer.

We arrive 30 mins earlier than the 3:00 check in time. We were able to check in but had yo wait into 3:00 to get our room key. The room was a studio 2 queen very firm beds. The carpet was old with no stains. The full small kitchen was old with older stove only one element worked. The kitchen was well equipped. The bathroom was nice. Our ocean view was excellent. The only downfall was sleeping...we awoke at 1 am with extreme noise from the people above us. We were located on the first floor. The ceiling literally vibrated from their walking across the floor. Sounded like a herd of elephants. This went on for an hour. We didn't get much sleep. Overall we enjoyed the view and overall essence of the older quiet location.

Everything was great EXCEPT that Young, the guy at the front desk, told me that there would be a convenience store on the other side of Inn at Spanish Head on the right side and there was not. Had to walk hella far to find a store which was on the left a lot farther down than he said.... My legs are still sore from it and that was 2 days ago. Thanks Dude

A basic clean no frills oceanfront comfortable room with an exceptional view..

We enjoyed the fire place and being able to walk down to the beach. Friendly staff good location close to everything. The view from the room is amazing. It is over all comfortable. This is not a new and fancy kind of place but it reminded me of the kind of place we visited on the coast when I was a kid so that made it perfect for this trip with my son down the Oregon Coast.

Very nice. Gorgeous view!! Room was clean and comfortable. I would stay there again.

Staff was welcoming and helpful. Quick check-in, and we got the view room we requested. Easy parking close to our room. We spent time beach combing as there is a pathway down to the beach. There isn't shopping or restaurants nearby, but they are all an easy drive into town. The motel feels cozy and secluded, which we liked. Rooms were clean, with fridge, microwave, TV, wifi, and fireplace. View can't be beat. We opened the window for fresh air and the sounds of the ocean. We would definitely stay there again.
