Sailor Jack Ocean Front Motel

Reviewed 17 August 2014

Central location on the beach. Price is good. Cleanliness and maintenance is lacking. If not for the beach location this would be a pass. Stayed in two different rooms and both had leaking toilets and a simple thorough vacuuming would have helped. Upper floor wifi is poor. Paper thin walls have you hearing things most would prefer not to hear. Stayed at this hotel due to proximity to wedding. Would have passed if not for that.

Sailor Jack's is nicely furnished and for the price, very comfortable. One of the positive things about the suite was that it had a table and chairs. The shower was hot, the beach wasn't crowded and it was walking distance to restaurants and a wonderful independent bookstore.

This really isn't a bad place to stay. The rooms are nice, beds okay, and the views are great. The continental breakfast isn't anything to write home about, but they do provide a few basics. The two biggest problems that kind of stood out were, 1) The only public area is a deck on the second floor, and it is the gathering place for those trying to get cancer. That kind of makes it undesirable for those of us who are trying to avoid it. 2) The lack of an elevator. For young couples, and maybe even middle agers, it is not a terrible burden, but if you are way overweight, or an old fogey, or both, carrying your bags and tired old body up to the third floor and get to be a pain. Literally and figuratively.

Room Tip: Book early enough to get a ground floor you if you don't like climbing the stairs.

Apoet2, Thank you for your business and we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us at Sailor Jack. We also thank you for letting us know about your concerns so that we can do our best to ensure that our guests are comfortable and that their stay is pleasant. True, we do not provide a continental breakfast but we do want to make sure our guests have coffee/tea and fruit to start your day as you head out. We are a non smoking motel and we do ask the guests who do smoke to do so in the front of the building or on the beach so that the wind does not carry it into other peoples rooms. We hope you will continue coming back to Sailor Jack and in the future if you are on the second or third floor and need help taking your bags up, please feel free to let us know, we will be more than glad to accommodate you in anyway we can. Thank you again staying with us and we look forward to serving you again.

This place was surprisingly nice. Clean, classy rooms, all with amazing views of the ocean. The bottom floor rooms all have balconies that you can step out onto and enjoy the view and the breeze. There is a staircase that will take you down the bluff to the beach. There is a hose outside to wash the sand off your feet and kids and toys. The bathroom is right next to the door, on tile, so that you don't track sand into the room.

Service was friendly. The Internet worked, and we rented a DVD from the front desk and used the DVD player that they have in each room.

A very good value for the price. Affordable luxury -- even the higher-end hotels don't all have rooms with views of the ocean.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the bottom floor -- those have balconies.

I proposed to my fiance on the beach just below Sailor Jack's in February of this year. I was looking for a nicer hotel that didn't carry the hefty price tag like most do on the coast and we were pleasantly surprised. The staff was great, the room was very nice for the price and the view was amazing. We will surely be staying here again in the future!

Stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. We had a bottom floor with a balcony and the view of the ocean is unbeatable!! The room was clean and plenty of room. Exactly what we were looking for. Ocean front for $100 a night? Yeh, you can't beat it!

My only complaint is that the balconies are not private at all. It would be nice not to see my neighbor when I'm sitting on the deck drinking my coffee, but other than that this place was a great find!!

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony you will not be disappointed.

Super friendly check in associates. Nice, clean room with very comfy bed. There were some small stains on carpet or old cabinets (you can tell the place has been "half" renovated recently) but it didn't bother us since we were so distracted by the excellent view! With wonderful tidal pools a few minutes walk on the beach north and "D River" a few minutes walk to the south, this place is in a perfect location for a family. Can't beat the price and quality for an oceanfront spot. We would return. Plus pet friendly!

Room Tip: It's worth the extra ten to get a ground floor room with a balcony. Watching the sunset over the...
