Reviewed 24 July 2013

Despite a nice setting at the top of a hill, this property is a typical 2 star hotel much like Motel 6 or Travel Lodge. Our room was fine tho marginally clean w thin towels and no soul. The effusive proprietor couldn't stop apologizing. She was sorry the room was not as clean as it should be ( candy wrappers and crumbs in the bed stand drawer.) She was sorry that the spa hot room wasn't hot. She was sorry that phone calls interrupted her when she was trying to explain things to us about god knows what. The included breakfast was sub par and much like travel lodge but not as good. Im sure they would have apologized for that too if given the chance. I was particularly irritated at breakfast. The coffee (mediocre) was luke warm and there was no fruit. Very mediocre in every way. An employee was speaking to some guests regarding area attractions in an extremely loud voice which was quite irritating and inappropriate. Despite the favorable reviews I must honestly say this place is nothing special and rates 2 stars on every level.

Dear Disenchanted. “Thank You” for your kind words. We are sorry to hear of your concerns. In every room there is a guest information sheet that reads: There are many details involved in operating an Inn, so we ask that if you find anything out of place or not to your satisfaction, please contact the Host on duty and they will do everything possible to make the correction.

Off to Florence for a game of golf on the sand dunes. We haven't had very good luck in the past with accommodation there but the woman at the casino recommended the Landmark. It was clean but sparse. We could hear the conversation of the people next door and the snoring kept us awake most of the night. The shower was short on water and the towels were dollar store quality. Thin and rough. We stayed 2 nights and they asked if we needed housekeeping for the second. This place certainly wasn't welcoming. But if you have to stay in Florence it's probably as good as it gets. It's a beautiful little town but short on decent places to stay.

RECOMMENDED BY THE CASINO - Thank you for recognizing that we are clean. When folks stay 2 nights, we try to be friendly and respect guests privacy. We ask guests if they want room service to make sure they actually want it. We are always happy to give the room service.
The Landmark Inn is actually built above government sound proofing and fire codes. Sorry about the loud snoring. It is difficult to control loud snoring next door.
During staff training, the definition of hospitality is discussed. The definition states, to give housing in a friendly and gracious manner, and that is what we strive for.
In every room there is an information sheet that states; There are many details involved in operating an Inn, so we ask that if you find anything out of place or not to your satisfaction, please contact the Host on duty and they will do everything possible to make the correction. If your towels were thin from time, please ask for more towels. We would be happy to give you some of our big, fluffy new towels.
We are happy that you feel that we are the best choice in motel accommodations in Florence. When / if you ever return to Florence, please give the Landmark Inn another try and perhaps choose another room.
Best Wishes to You, Staff at the Landmark Inn :-)

We really enjoyed our stay here! The rooms are clean, comfortable and you can choose from different layouts. We had a room with a bedroom area, bathroom & seperate living room space, which would have made it great for a longer stay. Despite not getting the kitchen, we still had a microwave & fridge - handy for reheating restaurant leftovers. We both enjoyed the addition of cheese and sausage at breakfast rather than the usual "carbs only" continental breakfast options (although those were available as well) and took advantage of it to make our own sausage & cheese "mcmuffin."

The staff was super friendly and helpful also and we really enjoyed the location close to the old town part of Florence. It's an easy walk to a nice selection of restaurants, bars (from classy to dive) and little stores. We will definitely stay here when we go to Florence in the future.

Room Tip: It really depends on the type of room you want. There are standard hotel rooms, rooms w/ a separate...

This little hilltop gem is hidden in some trees. If you didn't know it was there you would miss it. Great staff and some great rooms at great prices. We stayed in 1 and 5 and enjoyed them both. Very clean, nice kitchen in 1 and efficiency kitchen in 5. We enjoyed the views (not all rooms have them) and meeting with the staff and other visitors for breakfast (continental). We stayed a day on the way up the coast of Oregon and came back for two more days on the way down. The riverside part of Florence is a lovely walking area with great shops and nice locals. The new bakery "The Shed" is a must stop. We are already planning to revisit the area and stay here in 3 months. Oh, there is a sauna(stream room) and whirlpool for guests and a private bubbler in room 5, but there is no view. Overall, still an excellent value compared to so many others and really clean (my biggest sticking point).

Room Tip: There are two rooms that don't have views, however they are also the cheapest. If a view matters...

On top of a giant sand dune, avoid if you don't like steep driveways, but we loved it! Clean, bright, huge rooms and really comfy beds. Superb value for money especially after a night in Seaside! Owners very friendly and helpful, breakfast had plenty of options! Shame we didn't have time for the sauna...

Great little town, head down to the old town just down the road for great little shops and eateries. A really lovely genuine kind of place after then tourist trap strip towns further along the coast.

As an ex-owner of a janitorial service, cleanliness is a must for me...even the Hilton isn't clean enough. The Landmark Inn is the first place I've stayed that I didn't immediately place a bathmat on the bathroom floor. It may not be luxurious, but I will vote for clean every time! The staff are extremely lovely and helpful in every way. The spa was enjoyable and breakfast was just the right amount to get us going. We stayed upstairs and had a glimpse of the ocean off the staircase, but we didn't stay for the view because we went to the ocean to see it. I liked the location: convenient to local attractions yet tucked away from the noise, up on the hill. If we don't move to Florence, we'll be back here to visit!! (I'm rating swimming pool but they only have a nice enclosed spa tub and sauna that you have private use of for an hour a day with each room.)

Room Tip: We stayed in the smallest room upstairs (#6) and it was perfect for me and my son because we weren...

My wife and enjoyed our stay in this facility off the busy highway that runs nearby. We stayed in the upstairs unit. There were no special views from the room--which wasn't an issue for us. The bathroom was very small but adequate. The bed were comfortable. The room was clean but rather small. The staff was friendly and helpful. A very pleasant visit in this inn
