“Great lil place for the price!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

This is not a fancy place. But the people are super nice. The rates cant be beat. Dog friendly. The only complaint I have is there was an envelope in the room that said we should leave a tip for the housekeeper if we were happy. I didnt leave a tip. The room smelled clean and the bedding looked clean, but we found a paper cup, two teddy grahams, a coffee stir stick and a granola bar wrapper laying in various places in the room. Id say they might want to up their standards of a housekeeper or not leave that envelope. I'd stay again!

Nothing fancy with the room. At first glance, room looks clean...in need of new carpet, rather dingy/dirty. Our room 113 had a big tear in it, tripping hazard. Closer look, everywhere needed to be dusted (details). And the minute maid lid and straw under the table from previous renter...probably should have been picked up! Rather large gaps in the door and unless you have a fan to drown out the sound from the other patrons, it's a little noisy. Room is average..but how much time do you spend in the room, really?! The hotel managers, super nice. Now the view is priceless. Access to the beach is worth a million. The jetted tub was very relaxing. Down fall is the closeness you have with your neighbors on the ground floor rooms with a deck. We had our curtains/door open and the neighbors were right there....Smoking and Gawking! Along with all the folks that walked by to use the stairs to go down. Maybe a privacy partition would be super! Liked that they have surveillance cameras everywhere..noticed it may be used for a cut through area. My wish list would be softer bed and newer carpet. All in all, it was a nice stay!

This was a true find. We arrived in Lincoln City with no plans and ended after some searching at Sailor Jack's. It is an amazing place just across the road from the beach. Do not waste your time searching. The rooms are bright and clean. The coffee shops and eateries are close by. This is *not* a hotel but it is a great example of a motel. We will stay there again.

This place was really clean, affordable and friendly. We loved the view and the staff was very very nice. On a great dead end road not the main strip which is always nice. Right on the beach made it a great find for the price. We will absolutely stay here again next time!!!

My wife and I stayed at Sailor Jack for two nights during the week as an anniversary celebration. I was a little leery about staying here because the price was so incredibly reasonable for an oceanfront motel, but we were pleasantly surprised. This is a quiet oceanfront motel tucked away at the end of a dead end street. The view was fantastic from our second floor room. It looks like the rooms were recently updated with new furnishings, etc. and they were very clean. There were a few nicks here and there in the walls and the paint on the doors wasn't quite complete, but this wasn't anything major. The wi-fi worked perfectly, which is a plus to us. Staff was extremely friendly. Our only complaint was that the bed was exremely hard, but maybe some people like that. We were on the second floor, but next time will probably request third floor because you can hear people walking around above you. We will definately be staying here again.

Room Tip: If you don't want to hear walking above you, request a third floor room. if you don't mind...

This was third or fourth time we've stayed here and each time we've been impressed with the property. The motel is located right above the beach with a really good view of the ocean and stairs right down the the beach. The rooms are clean and have a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. We've always been here midweek during the shoulder season and the prices have been great - a really good value.

Sailor Jack was extremely helpful in returning a camera we had left behind in our room. Via email and phone, their staff arranged to have it shipped back to us.
The motel is in a great location - right on the beach. It was lovely to wake up and watch the surf steps from our patio door. The fireplace and jacuzzi tub are very nice. My only advice would be to avoid the rooms on the ground floor where cars park. Our door didn't shut solidly, and both cold air and outside noises filtered in easily. Other than that, we loved our stay!
