“Cute, Fun, and Cozy.”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

My mom and I stayed at the Sandy Cover for 2 nights in October 2013 on a short trip down the Oregon Coast from Canada.
I found Sandy Cove with a Groupon voucher and was glad to find somewhere for a decent price close to the waterfront and not too far from the downtown area.
We mainly used this place as a day trip base for a few drives around the area - to Cannon Beach and to the Tillamok Cheese Factory.

The hotel is very cute, well maintained, clean and friendly. Each room is painted and decorated with a theme. Our room was a Beach Surfer Theme, complete with a surfboard on the wall. The room was smallish with a double bed plus a single and double futon bunk bed. The bathroom was small and older as well, but clean and suited us just fine.

Our only issue was that the room's TV was very small and placed onto of a very tall wardrobe/closet. The only comfortable place to view it was from the double bed and even then it was quite a ways away for a small TV. (Travelling in october meant we didn't have ideal weather and were indoors most evenings, making the TV important.)

The staff was friendly and helped direct us to a few restaurant options.
I would book with the Sandy Cove again sometime in the future, hopefully when the weather is warmer and we can take advantage of more beach time.
I also appreciate that they have some rooms that accept guests travelling with dogs. That's always a bonus for me.

Room Tip: I believe there is no elevator, so if stairs are an issue ask for a ground-level room.

My husband and I stayed one night and it was a great place to be as far as proximity to the beach and the board walk. If you like to take long walks on the beach, but not in the sand, this is the place for you! We walked all the way to the turn around and down to the shops so I didn't feel guilty at all about eating a Pronto Pup smothered in mustard and Tom N' Larry's fudge! Also, right across the street of the motel is a little pub (U Ave. Pub and Grub) with the best clam dip and homemade chips you'll ever eat! The only reason I gave this place a 3 instead of a 5 was because the mattress in our room (country charm) was very old and not very comfortable, also the plumbing from the neighboring rooms is very loud and obnoxious. So as long as nobody takes showers while your sleeping, you'll be ok.

Room Tip: We've only stayed once so don't know what the other rooms are like. The country charm room w...

Stayed here for one night in the "Garden Room". Each has a different theme (see photo). Very comfortable and clean, but not fancy. No closet to hang up clothing. Away from the hubub of Seaside, but just off the beach with a very friendly pub across the street with surprisingly good food.

The pub was recommended by David @ the front desk. A good value and I would stay again.

Location just south of the prom away from the madness that is down town is great. They treated us very well and had a room for our dog that did not show any signs of other dogs ever being there. Clean, close to the beach, and the market and pub just across the street were very convenient. We will defiantly be back!

Room Tip: I don't think you can go wrong with any room choice

We loved the Sandy Cove Inn! Perfect location away from the craziness of the main strip but close enough to walk there. Quiet area, super close to the beach...everything we were looking for.
Staff was super friendly, there is a great pub and grocery store right across the street. Look forward to returning one day.

Cute hotel, rooms have a different theme. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Great meal suggestions from Nathan at the front desk. We especially liked the red fire hydrant for the doggie area. The morning desk gal was very informative regarding history and remodel of hotel. Enjoyed staying on the quieter end of the promenade. Great walk to shopping.

What a find! After a long day of driving, sightseeing and walking we set out for accommodation at Cannon Beach or Manzanita. After feeling rather like Mary and Joseph where there were no rooms at the inn(s), we were directed to the Sandy Cove Inn at Seaside. We received a warm welcome, even though it was late in the evening, and were allocated 'The Boat Room'! With a warm ambiance and lots of boating paraphernalia, the room was well equipped and comfortable and in a wonderful location. When driving through Seaside, we didn't realise what a lovely place it was to hang out. The hotel was only a block from the beach and sea walk / promenade and followed this along to the end to find lots of choices for brunch or lunch. Next time we come through this way, we will definitely be staying here again.

Room Tip: Ask about the room options available as each room has an individual theme. Also, movies are availabl...
