We stayed at this hotel for 1 night in July 2008 as we were making a trip along the Oregon coast. We saw it while driving through town and called to book it directly. We paid around $77 for a double room. We had 5 people, including 2 small kids. We chose it primarily from the exterior look and low price compared to others in town we called.
Since we have kids, we wanted a hotel with a swimming pool. You'll find that no hotels along the Oregon coast have outdoor pools because of the cool weather. We didn't want to pay the big jump in price for an indoor pool since we were arriving late anyway.
This hotel does have an indoor hot tub, which we used and enjoyed. There was a small exercise room near it, which we didn't use.
For our room, we were given a choice if we would like to have a balcony or a fireplace - it seems rooms have one or the other. We chose a balcony. It overlooked the Yaquina Bay. The room was nice and clean and larger than a typical double room. It included a loveseat and coffee table. It also had a refrigerator and microwave. It had a double sink outside the restroom. You enter the rooms from an indoor hallway. They have an elevator and a cart for luggage (no bellboy).
They had coffee in the lobby and muffins (not too good) out at breakfast time. Every room had a VCR (yea, old technolog), and they had a wide variety of movies in the lobby to rent. I don't know how much they cost - we didn't ask.
We were happy with our stay and found it a great value for the price.
