Jot's Resort

Reviewed 3 August 2013

Motel was adequate for an overnight stay. Nothing special. Arrive late/leave early. Overlooks Rogue River, but very plain with simple accommodations. Breakfast included coffee and a Muffin. Room was very basic, but clean. Would not stay again unless there were no other choices. Staff was helpful. Not a lot of character here except for the river. This was an overnight stop on a trip down the Oregon Coast.

Before coming to Gold Beach I was leaning towards the more costly Tu Tu Tu'n or Ireland's based on other's reviews; however, we arrived in Gold Beach only about a half hour before our check in at Jerry's Jet Boats and Jot's was right across the bridge so we decided to give it a shot. First off, don't be mislead by the name by he word 'resort' simply means a place where people go for recreation or relaxation. It does not mean swim up bars, golf courses and pool side drink delivery, although there are certainly resorts that offer these amenities. Jot's is not that kind if resort. If you require luxury accommodations you should perhaps keep looking. But now on to why Jot's gets my 4 stars. Location: it is right off the highway as you cross the bridge leaving town. If you are here for the Jet Boat rides, they are just on the other side of the river (although you can arrange to be picked up at the Jot's dock. From the second floor, we had an up close and uninstructed view of the river and the Patterson bridge. You can watch the fishing boats and sea lions from the balcony and every room has a large slider and water view. If you are one of said fisherman, Jots has their own large dock, boat ramp and the parking lot is set up for boat trailer parking. The rooms : are good sized and clean with typical motel decor from any of the last several decades. They have a coffee pot, iron, hair dryer, mini fridge and microwave. I once read that Stevie Wonder preferred Holiday Inns because they were so similar he could always find his way around without bumping into furniture. I have no idea if there is any truth to that, but this room was so predictable in terms of furniture and arrangement that it would fit that bill. We opted for two queen beds which were surprisingly comfortable with generous bedding. The other amenities (none of which we actually tried): there is a small outdoor pool as well as an indie pool and spa. There is a restaurant and lounge as well as a small gift shop and tacks and bait shop. You can also arrange guided fishing trips on the Rogue River or deep sea fishing charters. If you are just looking for a clean and comfortable place to sleep while passing through, it would meet that need as well. The Price: The advertised price was, I think $139 a night and as we arrived with no reservation on a Monday they gave it to us for $120. You really can't beat that. If we had been planning to stay several days in Gold Beach we might have opted for something a little more upscale, but for our purposes it was an excellent choice. All of the several staff members we interacted with were extremely friendly, welcoming and accommodating.

This hotel is listed as a "resort"... perhaps in its younger years it WAS, but in 2013, this is merely a motel and one in DIRE need of an update! The room I reserved was a double queen with a "kitchenette" paid $140 a night and was soooo VERY disappointed when we arrived! very, very small room. The kitchenette looked to be from mid 70's and instead of wall paper around the kitchen, they used contact paper! This was a room to sleep 4 and only had one coffee cup, 2 drinking glasses, one spoon, 8 forks and no knives, one salad bowl and 2 plates and The chairs to the dinette, were BOTH broken, absolutely NOTHING holding the cushion up, so when you sit in it, you fall through! The mattresses' on both beds, were old and uncomfortable, the bedspread even has thinning spots in it, that you could literally see through! The carpet was completely stained throughout! The TV was an old 20" tube type tv. They do not offer you a dresser and only 4 clothes hangers. The Oregon coast overages high 60's to mid 70's in the summer and yet their outdoor pool was not heated. I am NOT a happy customer at all. The only PLUS about this motel is the view and the fact that you have easy access to the bay and boat ramp, fishing was great! The staff was friendly, but not very caring of your needs. I asked them for more eating utensils and they gave me plastic ones and said they would bring me more dishes. They never did, even after asking them TWICE! I will NOT recommend this place to you or anyone else. My next visit will be at the Motel 6 across the bridge, it is waaay nicer than this place!

Room Tip: the best tip I can give to you, is to shop around. This place is waaaay over rated and VERY expensiv...

The staff at Jot's are all kind and helpful. We only had one night there on this trip but had stayed there once in the distant past. The room was clean and comfortable, We needed to do laundry so they put us in the building with the machines. The view is soothing right on the river. There is fishing and river trips there and across the river.

This is an OK hotel right on the Rogue River as it outlets into the ocean. Very nice staff, walking distance to town and restaurants. Large clean rooms with sliding glass doors overlooking the river. A dock and area for cleaning the catch of the day. Also, store stocked with anythng you forgot or might need for fishing. Also has a laundry facility and large workout and entertainment room.

Room Tip: As with any hotel, I suggest you get an upper floor room to prevent noise from upstairs neighbors wh...

I guess this is the review that proves I don't give everyone very good or excellent marks. We recently stayed at Jots for a night and while the location is great and people are friendly the room was a disappointment. We had stayed here some years before and had a good experience but at least in the section of rooms we were in the decor was tired and lifeless. Heat, which was mentioned by a few other reviewers also seemed to be in short supply. While seemed to be holding its own until bed time came up short overnight. The staff was great about giving us a credit on our bill but it's probably time they just fixed the heat.

Room Tip: Ask if they have updated rooms and request a room in that area. All rooms have beautiful view of ri...

We just had a wonderful weekend at Jots. The staff was so helpful from getting our room ready to mooring our boat, to having the coffee going while fishing away. Coffee on the deck, a clean comfy room and bed and fishing right there as you walk out your door. How great can it get. I wanted to stay forever!...Luckily I can go back whenever I want. Thanks Jots!
