“Cozy and Comfy!”
Reviewed 14 April 2011

We arrived in the evening and checked into the Captain's Quarters. The owner was extremely nice and we were the first to stay in the room since the re-design. It was very clean and cozy - we felt right at home and appreciated the hospitality and amenities. The room had a microwave, refrigerator, and coffeemaker. Very nice sleep and very nice shower! In the morning, we took a walk to the coast, which was only a few blocks away.

I've stayed here many times. I look forward to spending time in one of the quaint, clean rooms at this motel. The owners, Karen and Dennis are always friendly and accomodating and do whatever is necessary to make their guests happy and comfortable. You can't find a better value on the coast and it's within walking distance of everything in Yachats.

Lovely smaller motel on the coast. Room included a kitchen that was fully stocked with everything one would need except groceries! Very nicely decorated rooms with plenty of room and comfortable bed. Extra clean!! Motel hosts, husband and wife, let you be, but are right there if you need anything. Gidget, the dog, loves to visit everyone. GREAT PLACE TO STAY for the whole family including the dog. :-) Very reasonably priced too!

After reading the mixed reviews for the Ya'Tel on this site, we decided to take the chance and were SO glad we did! We had a very enjoyable stay -- it was clean, cozy, and CHEAP! It's not luxurious by any means but for the price, you will not find anything better. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

What we loved: friendly owners, the presence of a kitchen (nothing like getting to cook your own fresh seafood for dinner!), the cleanliness, the cute decor, the proximity to the ocean (about 2 blocks), and the town of Yachats in general compared to the surrounding area. Also, free Wi-Fi -- definitely wasn't expecting that in this small town.

What could be improved: the bed was a bit hard, but since we are young and back-problem free, it wasn't a big deal for us. We both slept just fine.

The place is a good value when you're traveling with the family. Be warned though: the beds are hard as rocks. This was a problem for us because I have severe back problems and chronic pain. I woke up very early the first morning, in bad pain because the beds are just so hard (I'd been in zero pain when I went to bed).

The second problem is the layout of the rooms. We stayed in the "Family Room". It has a nicely done kitchen and plenty of room to sleep, however, the bathroom is awkwardly located. You have to go through the only bedroom to reach it. This makes the entire reason for a bedroom - a little privacy - pretty pointless.

The last problem is one I take big issue with: On their website, they say "across the street from the beautiful Pacific Ocean". This is not true. They are on the east side of Highway 101 - and three blocks from the ocean. If I had known this (in other words if they had not lied on their website) I would not have stayed because proximity to the ocean is extremely important to me while on vacation.

We had reserved three days but left after the first. The owner only charged us for two days, which I do appreciate. In light of the false advertising on their website though, I should have been refunded for both of the nights.

I do remember this gentleman and his stay here. From the very moment he arrived you could tell he was disgruntled and wanted to be anywhere but Yachats Oregon.He found reasons to leave. We ARE a short walk down to the ocean, this is true, but we are not three blocks.As for the firmness of our beds, some people get upst with hard beds, some people demand them. You cannot please everyone , although we try. We have since bought all new beds for every room (all Beautyrests) The guest had reserved three days. In the afternoon of the second day is when he informed me he was unhappy. We were booked up and i had been turning down requests left and right. I did refund him for the third day even though we have a 48 hour cancellation policy. As for the bathroom situation, this is a motel and things are not always designed like the most comfortable homes. We are very sorry that he was not happy

Arrived at Ya'tel around 10pm to be greeted by Bob. Really friendly guy, couldn't do more to help us. We paid $75 inc tax for a room with 2 queen beds and a queen pull out bed - this housed our party of 5 perfectly. In fact, the "suite" even had a separate bedroom for one of the queen beds.

Impeccably clean throughout with a heavy emphasis on environmental friendly initiatives.

Fully recommended.

One thing you want after a long day of hiking, beachcombing and whale watching is a comfy bed. The beds were hard and the pillows were flat. On the website they have beautiful quilts on the beds but we saw no quilts, just scratchy polyester comforters.

It was very clean and had a fully stocked kitchen. We were disappointed with the lack of ambience but the price was so good we just made do.

We are very sorry that this person found our beds to be too hard. some people like hard beds some soft. We have replaced all our beds with Beautyrests that seem to be making everyone happy. Once again we are sorry.
