“Great Room for a great price with an oceanfront view”
Reviewed 18 August 2010

My husband and toodler and I stayed at Sailor Jack for one night and our room was great! We had a room on the 3rd floor with a king bed.
The Pros: The room was large and was clearly a more recently renovated one. The pictures on the website looked exactly like the room we got. We stayed on a weekday and even got a great deal on the room! There is access to the beach from the back of the hotel. The staff we encountered were friendly and the amenities were what you would expect at any motel in the price range (TV with cable, mini fridge, microwave, shamoo (no conditioner), hotel coffee, towels for 2, extra pillows, etc.). It is dog freindly, although we did not bring any dogs.
The negatives: The exterior of the hotel shows its age a little and I am unsure if all rooms have been renovated (you might ask when you call for reservations). Also be warned the steps to the beach are steep, but we didn't have any trouble.

We had the jacuzzi room with flat screen TV, and fireplace and Jacuzzi. Incredible summer rate! I found the owners wonderful and helpful. It is a older motel, but well maintained. I grew up in Lincoln City and have always loved the charm of the older hotels and motels as opposed to the newer " cookie cutter" motels that are so much alike. You can not beat the location and view. All rooms I think, have ocean view . Would recommend!

My family has been staying at Sailor Jack's in Lincoln City for over 20 years. In the last few years, the management has changed each time we stay. The last couple of "teams" have shown they have no experience in customer service-- They act as if they are doing you a favor by "letting" you stay in their hotel.

The owner of SJs goes through management teams like crazy, but the last team (can't remember their names. Huge hefty woman, the male is also of porcine proportions) were overheard yelling at the housekeeping staff. A real class act.

SJs might be a few dollars less than other oceanfront hotels in Lincoln City, but it's really gone downhill.

We always come to the Beach off season,We always stay at Sailor Jacks, we find it comfortable and the access to the Beach is easy and breathtaking...This year we upgraded to the bigger room with fireplace and kitchen since we were expecting extended family to join us , I personally like the rooms,,Its not the Hilton but its comfy and affordable for someone on a budget,, There also dog friendly . Our room was clean and the service was daily and always a smile . I want to come visit next year but longer this time,,Its always better to book reservations early to get best rooms..The price off season is great,,We stayed 8 days and loved every minute of it.Im always telling my friends about Sailor Jacks..You can walk to the shops and get some good excercise in if you want to..We will definitely be returning next year to our favorite motel...

I have stayed at Sailor Jacks three times. It is very economical and I enjoyed the rustic atmosphere. The last time I stayed there was for my wedding. I had about 7 other family members stay that weekend too at Sailor Jacks. No members of the family had any complaints. I must say the jacuzzi room is the best. I really liked the deck that led to the steps to the beach. I have recommended this motel to many family members and will continue to do so............................

Stayed one night with two dogs- it was fine..but the plumbing had some issues...Didn't think it was an exceptional deal, but just average...we did enjoy the hot tub in the room and the beach access- although quite a climb still right there on the water- Would stay again considering the choices in Lincoln city- very quite and private location

my wife and i have stayed at this place several times over the last couple of years. we have a little dog and the sailor jack is one of the better places to bring him along. especially for the price. the cheaper rates for an ocean front place get you more than you would expect. the rooms are nothing fancy, but are not trashy in any way. it seems that they have been doing a lot of updates since we started staying there a few years ago. the staff has always been very nice as well. we actually eloped last year and had a small impromptu wedding at the bottom of the stairs on the beach. we'll be back again this summer.
