A group of us were traveling across the US recently and happened upon the Lincoln City area by day's end. Being that it was the high tourism period, and this area was obviously bustling with tourists, we were skeptical about finding a room on the beach as we had hoped. We decided to check the price/availability at this hotel, and WOW! am I glad we did!
There were 4 of us, and we were offered quite literally the last room available. The desk clerk almost seemed apologetic when she said the last room had 2 separate bedrooms with a common area for which she offered at a substantially lower price than normal. It was located within about 30 steps to the beach sand, so we accepted without hesitation. We were then offered complimentary glasses of wine as they do wine tasting each evening (nice touch).
Upon walking in the room we were just blown away! This wasn't a hotel room, it was more like a 2 bedroom condo! The rooms were split at opposite ends with a FULL kitchen and a living room w/fireplace in the middle. Each room had a king bed and there was a separate full bathroom at one end. The master room had its own bathroom and stand-a-lone jacuzzi bathtub as well as a private balcony. There was a second balcony attached to the living room which provided an outstanding ocean view.
Everything was immaculately clean and there were even complimentary bath robes. There were gas stations and a grocery store within 2 miles, and there was a very nice restaurant literally next door to the hotel. The parking was mostly covered beneath the hotel's entrance which made for good wind/ocean spray protection overnight.
During our 15 days of travel, this was perhaps the nicest hotel stay we experienced! If your budget allows and your travel group calls for it, request one of the 2 bedroom rooms at the end of each floor- you won't be disappointed!
