“One of the best I have visited in years”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

The Old Town Inn is one of the best overall hotels/motels I have stayed in. It is very clean, really comfortable, very convenient, and extremely well managed by John and Sharon Birdwell. The staff is friendly and responds quickly and professionally to all requests. The location is outstanding as it is less than a block's walk to Old Town. It is perfectly located, right on Highway 101, and it is so well insulated that absolutely no traffic noise is heard. No sounds are heard from rooms above, below, or beside yours. They have wonderfully fresh doughnuts available for the continental breakfast. The price is very affordable and in fact it is cheap for the quality of lodging you receive. When I travel to the central coast of Oregon again, I will go out of my way to stay at the Old Town Inn. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

Room Tip: There are many quaint shops and restaurants in Old Town, which is located beside the river.

There are many wonderful amenities of this facility. First of all it is location, location, location... What a pleasure to be able to walk to the fun part of the city and have lunch or shop without having to use your vehicle. Secondly the crisp, clean welcome into the rooms is awesome with the white spreads and fresh smell of the rooms.
Thirdly and most important of all is the management who are there to please all and make sure their stay is the most pleasant.

Room Tip: Tell management your desires....

Location, Location, Location...that's what we're talking about! Just 2 short half blocks walk to the Old Town area for restaurants, shopping or a view of the Siuslaw River and so much more. Thanks again for choosing the Old Town Inn in Florence.

Our son is heading back to school in just a week and we hadn't done a Beach trip in quite a while as we live in Central Oregon and it's not worth the drive if you can't stay a night or two. Old Town Inn was a perfect choice for us .Room was spotless. Staff was helpful and friendly. Fresh fruit and doughnuts/ good hot coffee. We will be back !

The "spur of the moment" beach trips are the best; just do what you want when you want, no scheduled agenda! We at OTI really aim to please all our guests with great customer service, fresh donuts to greet you each morning with delicious coffee, and a sparkling clean guest room.

Don't judge the book by its cover! The inn doesn't look appealing from the outside, but the rooms are magnificent. This newly renovated place is very clean & conveniently located. We enjoyed our stay & can't wait to return. The staff are friendly & helpful!

While this was at the upper end of our price range, the Old Town Inn in Florence was a great value for the money. It was clean, comfortable and located with easy access to the wharf area as well as the main access road to Florence. It has free Wi-fi which was readily available and some delightful personal touches. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was light on low-cal and low-carb choices, but there are some great place to eat within walking distance. The coffee, which was available in the office, was good, but there is also a pot and coffee available in the room which can be brewed. We would stay here again if we find ourselves back in Florence or recommend it to others who are looking for a place to stay.

Well, I had to admit, I was having hard time choosing the place to stay in Florence, since we were staying for couple of nights. I finally decided to go with Old Town Inn, for the price and the reviews. I was very happy about my choice.
The L shaped motel was close to the highway, so I asked for a quiet room, and our room in the inside corner was indeed very quiet.
Check in was fast, The lady (Lisa, I hope I remember her name right) was very friendly and efficient. In no time, I got the room keys and a brief orientation on the map for the old town.
Our room with King size bed was on the second floor, good size room and nicely set up. We found it comfortable. The room was clean. And from some small details I could really sense that the motel made an effort to make their guests feel at home and also being environmentally friendly.
The breakfast was in the front office. You could take it back to you room or enjoy it at the tables outside. Coffee, doughnuts, oatmeal and fruits, just enough to got your day started. Those doughnuts were so good!!
The charming old town and the scenic bridge were just short walking distance away.
We really enjoyed out stay there.
The only thing I would add to the room? Maybe a full length mirror.

Room Tip: the room in the inside corner is really very quiet

Wow!! Thank you so much for the wonderful review of Old Town Inn. All the special touches like the washcloth crab with the candy eyes, the rubber ducks, the delicious donuts and the spotless guestrooms have become a "trademark" of Old Town Inn, and guest really love them all. We know that guests have many Motels/Hotels in Florence to choose from, and we really appreciate you choosing us. Thanks again, and please come back soon!

I booked this hotel based on reviews on TripAdvisor & they were spot on! This is a gem -- clean, comfortable, newly decorated, great beds. Having a fridge and microwave was great since we have kids. The donuts from a local bakery were the best donuts I've ever had but there was also fruit and oatmeal. The couple who manage the hotel are lovely -- so warm and welcoming. We stayed in hotels as we traveled through Oregon that were 3 times the price of this one and truly no better. I would stay here again in a minute!
