“Room smelled like cigarettes; beach is not nice”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2008

Traveling from Seattle to the SF Bay area along the Oregon coast, we needed somewhere to stay that accepted dogs. We decided to splurge for the room with the jacuzzi ($240), but it definitely wasn't worth it. It was right next to the desk and just stuck out in the room.

The very worst part was the room smelled like cigarette smoke. When they assured us that it was a non-smoking room, they said the bad smell might come from the rooms above or below -- yuck! This made me assume that switching rooms would not help.

In the morning, we got to check out the beach, but the sand was really unpleasant. We got out of there as early as we could.

We had an oceanview room (I believe they call this one a side oceanview) that was good size, and had a fairly good view. The beach was not very large, and had lots of seashells. The downside of the room was the dirty carpet - it clearly hadn't been cleaned in a while. They did have an outdoor heated pool which we didn't utilize as it was too chilly of an evening for us to think about it.

It was record breaking heat while we were there on July 7th and 8th. No airconditioning but the front desk staff was great as they hustled around getting fans for everyone that asked. The hotel was very clean, the view wonderful, the beach clean. The pool is a on the small side but well kept. We'd stay again. Microwave, fridge, coffee pot, tv with hbo, quiet, clean......

It totally exceeded our expectations. The room was on the 3rd floor of the building closest to the water. The view was fantastic and it was really close to the water. The room was spotless and very spacious. It is either a more recent hotel or has been completely upgraded. It was very well appointed and I would highly recommend it. As well, it was late when we arrived and we were directed to the Smuggler's Cove Restaurant across the street. Great food, excellent service and large portions.Would go back to both the hotel and restaurant again and would definitely recommend it!

  • Liked — The close proximity to the Ocean and the view

We first planned to look at something cheaper in town, but the views from this hotel and the proximity to the beach changed our minds. We were in town on business and ended up feeling like we were on vacation! My husband booked our first night in a jacuzzi suite, then we moved to a smaller room just two doors down for two more nights. The staff was very helpful, informative and friendly. We will be returning to Brookings for future business and will stay here again. Clean rooms with mini frig, microwave and free internet with a full view of the ocean and the sound of the waves. Walked to lots of little places to eat, have coffee or a cocktail and just watch the harbor. Great spot to stay in Brookings!

We had a room on the 3rd floor (there's an elevator) for our 2-night stay in January. Wonderful view of the coastline, and the ocean is literally steps away (hence the tsunami information card in the room!). All the rooms here have an ocean view. The room was very spacious, with 2 queen beds, a desk, dresser, small couch, kitchenette area (fridge, microwave) and a small balcony. Nice well-lit vanity area with plenty of counter space. All very clean and new. Free wi-fi (I'm writing this from the room). Cable TV with a lot of channels. I didn't think about packing a swimsuit for an outdoor pool in January but evidently they keep it well-heated because people were swimming ... even in the rain! We had a breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Smuggler's Cove across the street ... good food, reasonable prices, friendly service .... breakfast was best. There's a public fishing pier at the end of the road.

The only drawback I could think of was that my husband paid something like $150/night for the room, which seemed a little pricey for the dead of winter!

Brookings is a cute town but definitely small. In addition to Harris State Park just north of town, Boardman State Park a little further up the highway has a lot of hiking trails and scenic views.

Very pleasantly surprised to find this hotel for the cost incurred. Clean and comfortable, which was all I was looking for. Hotel backed up to the beach which was great as my 4 year old loves the beach.
