“Amazing view from cabin #15”
Reviewed 28 January 2013

My Mom and I stayed in cabin #15, which was cozy and clean. The view was amazing! we found the stairs to go to the beach area below the cabins and spent some time on the beach. We stayed for a week and enjoyed every moment. The staff were helpful and courteous and we quickly found places to shop and eat in Brookings, just up the road. Walking in our first morning and smelling fresh bread being made was unforgettable. I thought the cabin was clean and well maintained. I cannot wait to take my wife there for a get away.

Room Tip: #15 has been remodeled and has a hot tub.

We stayed in cabin #16. It was excellent. A new mattress had just been installed and it was perfect. It is also pet friendly. It had a great view with a huge deck and spa. The place was very clean. There was direct beach access thru some well maintained wood steps a few cabins away. Management was very responsive and the fresh bread upon arrival was a fine touch.

Room Tip: This is a corner cabin and therefore has a bigger deck.

VERY DIRTY both inside and out! Stained dirty carpet, hot tub, deck and furniture was disgusting! We asked manager to have it all cleaned but that never happened. The upstairs is 2 twin beds on the floor and you can NOT stand up because the ceiling is too low!!! We were there for a family wedding and rented several cabins and none of them were clean! It was so bad that we went and bought sheets and our own pillows! After we sent an email the people who run it they responded with bad language and insults!!! Stay away from this place!!!

We stayed at the White Rock Resort. While we loved the view, the cabins were dirty and the maintenance was horrible. The sheets on the bed were dirty and stained and one of the pillows was coated in urine. The oven didn't work and the time to fix it was unreasonable. The day after our 3 day stay I noticed a charge on my credit card. When I called, I was told it was due to the cabin not being clean when we left. The maid was actually in the unit when I was cleaning and kept telling me not to do all of that because it was her job. The cabin was left cleaner when I left than when I checked in. All of the dishes were filthy and actually had to be washed before we could ever use them. I have disputed the charge with my bank, but what a disappointment!

The White Rock beach cottage we stayed in was very clean - but much smaller than the pictures and description showed. The surroundings are drab - as they are off the side of the Pac. Coast Hwy. but nothing much around it. The grounds seemed unkept and basically a huge cement driveway/parking lot upon entering, and no signs directing the way - very hard to find. We just ended up staying inside, watched TV, and left early the next morning. You couldn't get to the beach because there were just rocks below the cottages. I guess the pictures on their website created a different picture in my head than what we actually experienced.

We rented a cottage from a private owner. At the time of our transaction we were told that there were some problems with the management and a lawsuit was underway. We were told to just call the owner if any problems. We HAD to register with the resort at time of arrival.....I will say that the owner could not have been nicer. We did find the person who identified himself as mgr....rude and very unpersonable representing this resort in a very negative way. He would not even tell us where a grocery store was. We had traveled far, were tired and this reception stunk. Does he not realize that this reflects on the resort and the community? Renters do not care about the problems of a resort and did not need to hear all this negativity from the mgr....very poor representation. Although the cottage was cute and well stocked and the location great....we would never go there again. We noted that half of the cottages were for sale.....we did not have to wonder why. I would pass this one up!
