Our family needed a place to stay along 101 and we picked the Ocean Breeze because the price was right. We didn't have high expectations as it is a two star motel, but boy were we blown away! The two bedroom room (#6) was perfect for our family of four. I appreciated the cleanliness and attention to detail the moment we walked in the door. Everything was spotless! (And this is coming from a neat freak!) The numerous amenities were another pleasant surprise- it was great to have a microwave, mini fridge and coffee pot in our room and the 2nd TV in the 2nd bedroom came in handy, too. We travel with our two little dogs and they even provided us with a special bundle of linens for them! It is a very pet friendly place. The picnic area and horse shoe pit were nice features, though we were too busy out and about exploring Florence to use them. The Ocean Breeze Motel's managers, a sweet husband and wife team, were so friendly and made us feel right at home! As it was our first time in Florence, they were a great resource, too. They recommended restaurants and activities and even helped us with getting a reservation at Sandland Adventures. The level of hospitality is something you would expect at a 5 star hotel! Next time we're driving down the coast, we will definitely stay there again!

Husband and I booked a room for 7 days, and while we were there we decided to add a couple more days. We really enjoyed Florence OR, and we REALLY enjoyed our stay in this motel.
From the start the communication with the managers, Jacqui and Kevin was pleasant, very friendly, they are really very helpful. They are a good source of information about the area and where to go and what to see.

The motel is "cute", if you don't mind me using this word. I liked the decor used in the rooms, and the rooms were very clean. The layout of the motel is practical, it's always possible to park your car right in front of your room.

The outside of the motel looked very well kept, freshly paint, I like the color scheme of white and dark blue. And the 'dog area' is absolutely beautiful, grass, big tree, the picnic benches and the fire pit with the benches .. it all looks very welcoming. Hubby enjoyed spending his mornings there, drinking his coffee, smoking a cigarette.
For me it was easy to pop out the room with our dog and had him do his first and last business of the day there, before I took him out for walks in between.

The dog area is where you notice most that Ocean Breeze Motel is on the 101. The 101 can be rather busy and it is no fun to walk your dog there. I can highly recommend the mobile home park right behind the motel - please do clean up after your dog!! - or Grand Ave. for a good longer walk for with your dog(s).

When we added some more days to our trip we had to move rooms. First we stayed in # 2. When you enter the room you walk into the 'kitchen area' with microwave oven and fridge, and there is a long desk where you can have your meals, or - in our case - drop all your stuff. The bedroom (with 2 queen beds) is in the back. This room has 2 queen beds and a flat screen tv.
The bathroom has an awesome large walk-in shower. And my guess is it's wheelchair accessible.

After a week we moved to # 4. This room has 2 bedrooms. Both have a queen bed. The bigger room in the front, where you enter, has the little kitchen area, desk to eat at, the microwave oven and the fridge. Both rooms have a flat screen tv. I can imagine # 4 is a perfect room for 2 couples, or a family with kids, where the kids have their own room.
The bathroom is the more standard where you have to stand in the bathtub for your shower. It is slightly smaller too than the bathroom in # 2.

Although the motel is on the 101, when you're in the room and the windows in front are closed, you really don't hear any traffic.

In both rooms there's a little coffee machine standing right at the sink basin. For me that wasn't a very handy spot, although there was no alternative for it. Next time (and yes, we sure do plan on staying here again on our next trip to Florence!!) I plan to bring a extension cord (and a power strip) so I can put the coffee machine on the desk. That way there's more room to maneuver around the sink basin AND with/around the coffee machine.

The only thing that wasn't perfect was the wifi connection. In room 2 it was spotty at best. In room 4 it was better, I gather we were closer to "the source" in that room. Kevin tried his best to get a better connection going for us in room 2 but unfortunately it didn't make any difference. On the other hand: maybe just as well. We're on vacation, and I can do with a break from Facebook and email ;)

In short: AWESOME place to stay.

This is what motels used to be...friendly, personable, convenient, comfortable. Kevin made us feel right at home, especially with the Tennessee connection, and gave us great recommendations for dinner (the halibut fish n chips were awesome!). We were a little skeptical about staying at a "mom n pop" place on our family vacation...but the Ocean Breeze quickly erased any fears! If we ever get the chance to get back to the Oregon coast, this is where we'll stay!

Stayed here a few days on our Summer trip. This is a great motel for the price. Friendly staff and clean rooms. So happy with Ocean Breeze. Took the time to tell us of what to do in the area. Clean grounds with picnic benches and horseshoe pits to pass the time. Would definitely stay here on our next trip. I wish at hotel's would take a page from this places book. They set a top example.

This motel continues to be a great deal...friendly service, comfortable and quiet rooms, and a good value. The owners continued to improve the property since my first stay a year ago. Now there is a beautiful outdoor campfire ring with seating and a windscreen, outdoor picnic tables, and horseshoe pits.

Room Tip: Some have beautiful views of woods out the back.

Thank you so much ! What an awesome review. Repeat guests are a high complement. We are so glad you enjoyed the improvements we have been steadily working on. The new fire pit area is incredible, such an improvement! The outdoor picnic areas are wonderful to sit and enjoy a bite to eat. We love the fact that our guests can not only enjoy our clean rooms, but can also step outside and enjoy the beautiful grounds as well. We certainly hope to see you all again in the future. Thank you again!
