“Quaint Seaside Hotel”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

My husband and I have stayed at the Sandy Cove Inn a couple of times. They offer great rates, with fun themed rooms and an easy walk to the beach. Being off the main seaside strip is nice and the beach is a little quieter. The rooms are nice and clean, but nothing over the top and luxurious if that's what you're looking for.

Great Service, very clean, and quite comfortable. This place is owned and run by real people and doesn't have a corporate feel to it at all. The staff was very helpful and friendly and we'll definitely be back.

This was perfect!!!! I came to seaside with 2 of my friends to relax and celebrate my birthday. The Sandy Cove Inn totally exceeded all of our expectations. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the 1960’s room which we couldn’t believe how cute and super clean the room was. The atmosphere was quite, cozy and very comfy and the beach is only a short walk from the Sandy Cove. The rates are very reasonable and I would definitely stay here again and will reccomend this place to family and friends.

Sandy Cove Inn was a lovely place to stay in Seaside. The staff was so nice & accommodating with their suggestions & knowledge of the area. Our "B&B" room with 2 queens beds was very clean & comforable & we liked its top floor end location away from the street. I enjoyed my coffee out on the landing each morning watching all the birds flitting in & out of the many birdhouses in the vicinity. We didn’t bring a pet, but for those that do a water dish greeted them @ the Office door & the property also had a cute small grassy area complete with fire hydrant for furry guests. Next to the pet area was also an outdoor open shower for those needing to hose off items (or themselves) after a day at the beach.

The pub across the street had the absolute BEST fish & chips I’d had in a very long time. One evening we decided to walk over to check the place out & have a local micro brew before going elsewhere for dinner. After sitting @ the bar & being warmly greeted by the owner/bartender, Terry, enjoying stories & laughter with her & other locals, we decided to stay & give them our dinner business.

Although the weather could have been a little better for the sightseeing drive down the coast & back & during our walk out to Haystack Rock, we had a great time around the greater Seaside area & hope to be back again soon. Shhhh, try & keep it to yourselves should you decide to stay @ this gem of a little Inn. I'd like to be able to book my fav room here the next time I visit Seaside! Seriously though, the Sandy Inn has great rates & was the perfect place for us to stay!

Room Tip: B&B Room location was great on top floor @ the end furthest from the road.

I hate big corporate cookie-cutter hotels; that's why this place is awesome! Each room has its own unique decor and ambience and they are fantastically clean; our room had cool old antique-y mirrors and lamps and such. My boyfriend and I brought our dog with us, and upon check-in they even gave us a 'welcome basket' for him. The folks who run this joint are super friendly and give you a good run-down of where to go for food, drinks, etc. in town. I HIGHLY recommend this place, especially if you're interested in supporting one of the last mom-and-pop hotels in the area. Oh, and of course, the prices are totally decent.

Room Tip: Pet-friendly rooms available!

You may think it's just another little motel at the beach but it's a promise of a comfortable experience and cozy atmosphere. Completely renovated and clean, clean, clean. Despite its age, the updates like interior decoration, HD flat screen TV, free WiFi, and fridges in the room all serve to make the experience very enjoyable. While there is no microwave (at least not in our unit, Garden Room), there is a room coffee maker and free coffee in lobby. With a pub, grocery store and Espresso/sandwich shop all across the street within a block, the location is superb as it is quiet yet accommodating to all travelers needs. Away from the central core of Seaside, it is still just a good healthy walk downtown or less than a 5 minute drive. NOt posh but a really pleasant experience....and did I say, "clean"?

Thanks for highlighting how great our location is. We love being a part of the excellent businesses on Avenue U. And you are right - we don't keep microwaves in the rooms but we do have extra on hand for guests who like to prepare their own microwave meals. Just let the front desk know. We totally get budget travel! Thanks for staying with us and hurry back. We'd love to see you again.

My mother, sister and I came to Seaside; a beautiful place to unwind and take in the cool ocean breeze. We still cannot believe the incredible accommodations at the Sandy Cove Inn. I myself have worked in the hospitality industry for years and I am absolutely blown away. Each room is uniquely designed with great care and consideration. From the moment you walk in you feel as though you’re right at home. The owners and their small family team exceeded our expectations in every respect: value, design, cleanliness, overall experience, amenities, satisfaction... We’ve never felt so relaxed and welcomed by any one except family.

This place is genuine; a breath of fresh air from the corporate, franchised, standardized, cold and lifeless establishments we usually stay at. So much character…and for such an affordable price.

Room Tip: The 2nd floor suite with the balcony and Jacuzzi tub is more than fantastic!
