“Wonderful and unique hotel - but fitness center nonfunctional”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2010

I would agree with all of the good things that other travelers have said here. This hotel is a great value and I really appreciated all of the little amenities. As a huge fan of cucumber water, this made me happy. The pool, hot tub, and sauna amenities were clean and nice. The only problem I have with this hotel is that the "fitness center" is not really existent. It consisted of two broken treadmills (one of which literally had parts lying on the floor next to it) and an antiquated weight machine. It's not really fair to advertise a fitness center as an amenity with it in that kind of condition, honestly. As someone who looks for fitness centers when traveling, I thought I would warn others. But if the gym isn't important to you- you can't go wrong. Service is friendly and welcoming, rooms are spotless.

garibaldihouse, Owner at Garibaldi House Inn & Suites, responded to this review, 9 December 2010
I sincerely appreciate the kind words this reviewer had for our hotel, our service and our amenities. I feel badly we let her down on the exercise equipment.

We do have a plan in place to upgrade our exercise equipment, although it is functional and in good working order. In the meantime, I can only apologize to this guest and explain that we recently had both existing treadmills serviced, and perhaps that was underway on the day she was there. I was assured, however, that only one was placed out of service at a time. If both were placed out of service at one time, we certainly do owe an apology.

As to the weight machine, it is a three station universal unit that functions well and generates a lot of compliments for us. The common theme is appreciation that we have weights available instead of just bikes, treadmills, etc. Initially we had planned to replace it with another exercise piece, but have deferred after hearing the appreciation for having weights available. Perhaps we need to re-examine this again.

We will do our best to keep listening and appreciate your willingness to keep giving us feedback.

We were wondering how a 50-suite inn could resemble a bed-and-breakfast atmosphere. The owners and staff were able to do it! The cozy fireplace, the leather furniture in the lobby, the fresh pop corn, the fine bed linens, and quietness of it all were an extremely pleasant surprise. We had a couple of pleasant conversations with the owner, and staff was available when needed. The layout of the facility made it feel as though very few people were there. But we were later told that breadfast/social area was nearly full early in the morning. We will definitely recommend to friends and family, and will stay when in this area of the Oregon coast.

This was a real treat for us. From the moment you enter the beautiful, well-appointed lobby, to the fabulous breakfast in the morning..it was perfect. The owners are excellent hosts, offering appetizers, popcorn, coffee, spa water, and not your average complimentary breakfast. There were 3 hot items, plus waffles, fresh fruit, pastries, juice, coffee..we could go on and on. Please try to stay at this wonderful hotel, you won't be disappointed.

We have stayed at this hotel many times over the years and love it. It is always very neat and clean. The kids love the swimming pool and the beautiful glass elevator, while Mom and Dad love that it's across the street from places to eat and you can walk around the marina. This hotel is always our choice, and we recommend it to our friends and family.
Recently we asked if you would donate to a raffle at our kids school and you took the time to speak with me and I could tell the owners really take pride in their hotel. I can easily see why it's so highly ranked. Thanks for supporting Gales Creek Elementary, we really appreciate it.

My husband and I stayed for two nights. We had our two grandsons, ages 13 and 5 with us. The person at the front desk was friendly and full of good information about the area and the motel from the moment we got there. She explained the amenities to us (complimentary "spa" water, animal crackers and salt water taffy available in the lobby) to the early evening offering of Sliders: Friday night was ground beef and Saturday was a delicious pulled pork. There was also cheese and crackers offered by the fire both evenings. The breakfast (included in the room price) was quite outstanding. It was far superior to most of the complimentary breakfasts we have had, not only in the variety of items offered but also due to the vigilance of the owners and staff to ensure the area was clean and items were kept in good supply. We used the pool and hot tub extensively. It was open from 7 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. and really helped keep everyone entertained. The local restaurants recommended by the front desk were both great and a hit with us all. The beds were very comfortable and the room was quiet. I would definitely stay there again.

I love this place. It is spotlessly clean. My husband, my father and myself were going on a two day chartered fishing trip out of Garibali with my job being to book a hotel. I'm always skeptical about reviews and hotel websites but, I'm glad to say that everything on their website is true. We had the Family Suite which gave three adults plenty of room. The room amenties were standard -- coffee maker, refrig, microwave, HD TV and the mattresses were comfortable. But, it is what was outside the room that makes this place so special. Indoor pool and sauna, large BBQ area outside (a great place to cook your catch), the lobby had a nice fireplace, coffee, cookies, cucumber water, popcorn, Tillamook Cheese, Tillamook Smoker sausage, crackers and local salt water taffy all available 24 hours. When we arrived the desk clerk mentioned that a "snack" would be available around 5:30. Cancel your dinner plans, the snack ended up being sliders cooked on site that were amazing. Woke up the next morning after a very quiet night (The owners stay in the hotel so there are no shenanigans!) to an even better breakfast. of cereal, muffins, bagels, scrambled eggs, buscuits and gravy and hash browns. But, they had to step it up a notch with delicious homemade glacamole and mango salsa. Did I mention this is all complimentary? We picked up our box lunches ordered the night before at the front desk for $12 and were off to the boat ramp about 1/4 mile away. If you are still hungry, there are plenty of resturants within walking distance. What this place doesn't have is immediate access to the beach, private decks or a fireplace in each room. But, if you really want all of that, stay in Cannon Beach and pay another $200 per night. The Garibaldi House offers a reduced rate if you are fishing with certain guides. Make sure to mention this when you make your reservation. We will definitely return.
