Reviewed 5 August 2011

I recently stayed at the Getaway in room #9. The room had a nice ocean view, a living room, kitchen, and bedroom w a king size bed. It is a cozy motel w just 13 rooms, each are individually owned. It was clear within moments of checking in that things are not being maintaned.. Hand prints on the walls, animal smell, dirty drawers in the kitchen and a toilet that ran the entire 2 day stay. While doing dishes the guest below came up and said water was coming in to their unit, we discovered under the sink a leaking faucet, a bucket, and an odar that told the leak had been going on for quite some time. We reported the leak and were advised someone would come fix it... No on came. I'm not a neat freak by any means but this place left me feeling dirty.

we really enjoyed the getaway oceanfront lodging. it's no frills and the units are old, but ours had a full kitchen and lots of pots, pans, etc to work with. the view of twin rocks from the upstairs veranda was excellent. the desk staff was friendly and competent. we're already talking about going back some day. typical for the area, rockaway beach is a sleepy hamlet that's really just all about access to the beach. being that's it's been 105F every day in austin since about May, sitting on a cold beach (57F) was quite an enjoyable novelty!

Room Tip: upstairs rooms (we had 13) facing the beach facilitate nice views when you just want to stay cozy in...

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights and found this place super charming and a great value, comparatively. It's a small place with maybe 15 units, all each owned individually, which meant that each unit had its own charm. One night we stayed in a studio which had its own lovely attached living room with large screen TV & DVD, and a separate full kitchen with all the doo-dads you'd need and more. Plus a large bathroom and a comfy queen bed. Another night we stayed in a ocean view unit with a separate bedroom and again large living room and separate large full kitchen and a lovely view of the ocean. The interior decorating for each unit was unique and charming, not like the cheap motel-6 kind of furniture you'd find at nearby budget resorts (I know, I've stayed at them). Plus they had beach toys for the kids, beach towels available, a crab cleaning station and a handful of BBQ grills. It's old school, well kept and charming hosts.

We were fortunate to find the Ocean Getaway, for one night (no minimum stay during prime season), on short notice. Our Condo, #9,was a clean one bedroom, with a comfy queen bed, bathroom with shower, living room, with futon (2nd bed), free Wi Fi, and a fully equiped kitchen complete with a blender. The facility is older but acceptably and safely maintained. It's necessary to know that each condo is individual owned, furnished and maintained. The salt, moist air is really hard on buildings and I expect, being one dune away from the beach, the facility stays pretty busy. I'm confident, the new managers, Mike and Teana are doing their best to keep the facility well maintained. The price was less than we expect to pay, given prime beach season, when we needed a place to stay. I might stay here again depending on the available options.
