“Paper thin walls”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

About to endure my third night at this place. Walls are thin and if you are on the bottom floor it sounds as though the people in the room above are moving furniture every time they walk across the floor. So, I complained, and Bill went up to tallk to the people. After that they started practicing chords on an electric guitar - and they aren't any good.
This place bills itself as a place for Bandon Dunes golfers. Haven't seen one other than me in three days here and with not much sleep at night this is not the restful place one wants after trodding the links.
Avoid this place!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere besides here.

Although we didn't pay a fortune for the night we stayed here it was very disappointing. The room smelt damp and was very basic. They advertised free wifi but it was very patchy and didn't seem to work until around 9am in the morning. The bed was comfortable and the bedding was of good quality so that was a bonus. Bandon itself is not worth the visit.

I know I sound a little too enthusiastic but we spotted this place totally random on our motorcycle trip last July. Like almost every time, we got here late in the afternoon, it was getting dark already and very, very cold (even if it was mid July). Bandon didn't look like a place with a lot of options to stay for the night, so we were pretty much browsing the port area to find a good restaurant and warm up before jumping back on our bike. And there it was, the Sea Star right on the ocean, waiting for us. The owner cut us a very good deal even if it was high season and we landed on of the two large rooms on the top floor, with a beautiful view over the little port and walking distance from some very nice restaurants and pubs. Highly reccomended, t

Good value, decent clean room:
stayed one night en route from SF to Seattle.
Decent clean and quiet room, not much of a great view (though that's really Bandon's fault!)
Coffee shop round the corner for breakfast and centrally located

My husband and I just spent three days in Bandon, Oregon, one of our favorite vacation hangouts. This time we stayed at the Sea Star Guesthouse on First Street...right across the street from the boat basin and within walking distance to everything!

We had a suite (living room, bathroom, and bedroom) and it was charming. Clean and nicely decorated with those special touches that really make you feel like a guest. They only have six rooms...all different and each one a jewel. To top it off...the prices are really reasonable.

The managersl, Bill and Pat, bent over backwards to make sure we were comfortable. They also tend the gardens and keep them looking lovely. The garden is a great place to sit and watch the boats...with plenty of seating for everyone.

I highly recommend the Sea Star and we will be going back as soon as we can arrange the time.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3B with a shared deck and a view of the boat basin.

We stayed here for two nights in room 2B which was on the ground floor with windows looking out on the harbor and a shared deck. We had a "suite" which was a small bedroom with separate living area. It had a microwave and small refrigerator. I was impressed with the quality of the furnishings, sheets, towels, pillows, coffee, etc for the price which was very reasonable off season. There was plenty of hot water. The owner checked us in and left us alone (which was what we wanted). It is conveniently located to shops and restaurants and a short drive (or long walk) to the beach. The one thing that could be improved is the fold out couch in the living area, which is a lovely couch, but is not particularly comfortable to sleep on. The Sea Star was clean and seemed well maintained. A lovely place to stay in Bandon.

Room Tip: Suite 2 B does not have a door between the rooms.
