My wife and I just celebrated our 52nd wedding anniversary by returning once again to the wonderful Ocean Inn on the beach at Manzanita. We have been staying here for many years and truly rate it an outstanding home away from home. From the western most unit the beach sand is about 10 feet from the well maintained lawn and from there you can walk north or south on 5 miles of beach. There are 10 units here and nine of them have an ocean view. The 10th unit has been prepared for disabled quests. Eight of the units have full kitchens and the other 2 have microwaves. All 10 units have TVs and DVD players and plenty of room.

This is an ecological complex and has good facilities for recycling. Rather than routinely changing towels and bed linens every day, the excellent and friendly housekeeping staff ask each day about what services you need. There is a guest laundry facility.

Manzanita is a very small town with some special places to eat. One of our favorites is The Terra Cotta Café up near U.S. 101. In addition to wonderful dinners, the staff is very friendly. That seems to be typical of Manzanita and it starts with the office staff of the Ocean Inn who also are well informed about places of interest in Manzanita and the area to the north and south.

Remember, this is NOT Hawaii and the ocean temperature year round is 50 to 54 F. Also it is important to know the ocean waves can be unpredictable and powerful with strong under currents.

We find the Ocean Inn and Manzanita to be a delightful and restful spot to relax.

Dick and Sue Hall

Room Tip: There is no swimming pool or restaurant, but we couldn't figure out how to put in NA.

We stayed here this past week. Enjoyed the room. Great beach access. Nice courtyard enclosed for moving in and out and cleaning up after beach. The room we were in had a private garage with a garage door. That was a nice feature also. The thing we didn't like was we really had No Maid Service. Each day we would catch a girl that asked for our towels and emptied the garbage can. But no one ever really cleaned the room. You know, no one ever made the bed, no one ever cleaned the bath tub, no one ever cleaned the bathroom counter or wiped the mirror clean or even changed the glass in the bathroom. No one ever vacuumed the floor or swept the balcony. On our last day we didn't have paper towels or clean washing and drying clothes in the kitchen. Now, like I said, I liked the view, but for the price we were paying $1300 for 7 nights, a little bit of maid service would have been nice. I didn't need turn down service, but maybe making the bed once in awhile...and the sheets were never changed as well. So will I be back? I'm not sure.

Dear Alan R, I am sorry you are not happy with the level of our service. A number of factors may influence this. We do have maid service every day, however we do not do the dishes. That is in direct response to the majority of our guest who are here for a week and prefer to treat there vacation with us like you would be renting a condo or vacation rental elsewhere. Our policy for maid service is consistent with similar local lodgings. In regards to your bed not being made and sheets not being changed, there are sheet changes every 3rd day for weeklong stays and the beds are made every day service is requested. We do not however make beds or change the sheets if there are personal items on the bed. Often our guest request special housekeeping service which we are more than happy to fulfill. We take all guest comments seriously, thank you for your input.

We stayed in unit 9 April 8-9 and thoroughly appreciated the accommodations. Even though it rained most of the weekend, we enjoyed our stay--the cozy wood stove, the view from the living room (and the deck when it wasn't raining :-), the comfortable beds, and tasteful decor.
And, we loved the little town of Manzanita -- walkable and shoppable without being overwhelmingly touristy.

Dear HappytoSail,
Spring visits to the coast are often rainy. I am glad you took advantage of the wood stove. It really makes a difference, seems to take the dampness out of the air and does leave you with a nice warm cozy feeling.
Manzanita does have that small town charm, with a variety of shops for necessities and for pleasure that are all right up the street. Glad you enjoyed your visit and hope that you will visit us again in the future.

We stayed Friday-Sunday on the last weekend of spring break. We had forgotten that it was spring break, so our choices of rooms were limited and the town was a little busier than usual. Our unit (5) was just above the office and right off the street. For more privacy and a little more peace and quiet, we'd definitely recommend one of the units furthest from the street. The entire place had recently been remodeled, is tastefully done, and felt more like a home than a hotel room, with little touches like a quilt on the wall and nice furniture. The unit was super clean and perfect for two people. The kitchenette was just right for a long weekend, as there are several nice little places to eat nearby. There is a pretty decent view of the water from the balcony, minus one of the other units (1) and a power line. But, it's a stone's throw from the actual beach. We really appreciated the covered, off-street parking. The staff was extremely friendly, welcoming, and clearly take pride in their little slice of paradise. We'll be back for sure, just on a less crowded weekend.

Room Tip: For a little extra privacy and quiet, pick one of the rooms furthest from the street.

Hello DD-PDX, that is not the first time the reference of "little slice of paradise" has been mentioned recently. We hope to make every customer feel that way with their stay in Manzanita at Ocean Inn.
Normally unit #5 is somewhat protected from noise, as it is on the second floor. Spring break week though, is a little louder than usual and noise does travel. I wish we could control that.
Thank you for all of the nice compliments, glad you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again.

After reading all of the good feedback on this hotel on trip advisor I called to make a reservation because you can’t make them online. When I said that I only wanted to make a reservation for Saturday night they said I couldn’t because they would rather book both Saturday and Sunday. When they asked the owner if I could just stay Saturday they came back saying sorry I would have to book both nights. Before calling I checked room availability and they have a total of 10 rooms. It showed that 4 of the rooms not only did not have reservation for the day I wanted but for the 2 weeks leading up to that date all 4 of the rooms didn’t have any reservations. I ended up booking at another hotel. If you are looking for a 1 night trip to Manzanita better looks somewhere else.

Dear JohnLH3,
I am glad you were able to find a hotel that fulfilled your needs.

Please know that Ocean Inn does take reservations for one night on weekends. Considerations are taken and exceptions are made under a variety of circumstances as the dates get closer to desired date of occupancy. Our policy is not uncommon and is consistent with many hotels of like kind, including a similar hotel in Manzanita.

We are sorry you are not happy with our policies and hope you enjoy your stay at the hotel you have chosen.
