An older place but well maintained. Our room had a glassed in porch and chairs overlooking the bay which was just great. The bed needs to be replaced but that is the only negative. We would stay here again.

Wonderful location facing the water. We got the last room. A dredge had arrived in the bay and we had fun watching it. Quiet area. Friendly staff, amazing view, good price. The mattress could probably be replaced and the tub needed a quick rinse, but mostly, we were sitting on the sun porch looking at the view! If you like taking pictures, this is the place for you!

Yes, we enjoy the glitz of Vegas, the pampering in Key Largo - but once in a while a good raw experience can't be beat when on the Oregon Coast. Location is perched on a bluff, away from the freeway and overlooking the Pacific – accessed on a dead end road. The property manager (owner?) has high standards for preserving peace/quiet and cleanliness here. Views and rooms vary widely… so it’s a good idea to call and inquire to your specific desires.

Room Tip: South side rooms on upper levels have the best views.

Excellent location and friendly service. The rooms are large and clean, with good facilities. My main problem was the darkness of the rooms, whose windows look out onto a passageway/sun porch, then onto the view beyond. The decor was a little dated/drab, and the mattress was old and lumpy. I'd recommend it for a night on the way through, but not for a long stay. Good breakfasts in Port Orford!

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms (around the back of the office) are dark! I don't know whether the higher...

I was traveling up the Oregon Coast, and decided to stop for the night in Port Orford. I found this gem on a cliff above the harbor. The owner was very nice. Nice rooms, nothing fancy, but clean, well maintained, with a comfortable bed.

Room Tip: All the rooms have an ocean view. I had a first floor room, which allowed me to just step outside an...

Took our first trip up the Oregon coast. We just drive till we were tired! We stopped in Port Orford and found a charming little motel over looking the ocean.....clean, convenient, and the owner was very accommodating. We would definitely go back ;)!

This was our first time to stay at Castaway, but we will definitely stay there again. we had a lower room and the owner was telling us they have removed the closets in these rooms and opened up the wall for an awesome view from the bedroom of the ocean. We loved all the windows and the little "sun porch". very relaxing and the owner was extremely helpful and friendly. the bed was very comfortable, slept really well
