We stayed two nights at the Officer's Inn in Hammond. There is an absolutely hysterical guidebook that's somewhat fact and somewhat tongue and cheek. We laughed until we cried reading it! That was, though, the highlight of the Officer's Inn. They do have family sized suites with 2 or 3 beds, so it is an okay and affordable option for families. The Inn is very dated and in need a repair in many places inside and out. The bathroom in our room was early Home Depot $99 dollar sale. The staff was friendly enough, but not particularly helpful. For example, I asked them to send me directions when I made the reservation. I never saw them and this place isn't exactly easy to find. In their advertising they say "full breakfast not just continental like those other places". The breakfast the first day was an egg hash that was good, along with other side items, but the next day was very continental breakfast. There was plenty, but it wasn't impressive. The beds were also just awful. They nearly folded in half when you sat on them. It made me think of sleeping on my grandma's hide-a-bed in the 70's. It was a nice launching place to go down the coast and see the Lewis and Clark parks. Fort Stevens is also very close by. So, if you're looking for some place that is very basic that Officer's Inn is okay. It's like a Super 8 of B & B's. You can stay there, but it isn't luxury.
