What a great place. Killer view, big clean room, quiet. I would stay here again. Tammy was quite helpful with knowledge of the area. I will come back here. View of dock, ocean. Quiet. Easy access to town offerings.

We stayed for a couple of weeks recently at the Castaway and couldn't have been happier. The rooms are comfortable, and the views are fantastic!!!! The manager of the hotel (Rockne), couldn't have been nicer. We've stayed at the Castaway 5 or 6 times and will definitely come again.

The Oregon coast is spectacular - I divide into three sections: north, middle, and south. The south coast is quiet, removed from cities, lost in time. If you want fancy chain hotels and trend-driven places to east, go somewhere else. If you want genuine, place-centered locations, come here. The Castaway folks are great; the rooms with great views are well...

Over the years, we have stayed here a number of times. We have been upstairs in the larger units, also next to the office, and downstairs. The downstairs units have a central corridor that is all glass to the sea and port, with chairs for relaxing. So, the view is in the corridor, not your room. You easily can go...

We chose this motel due to the reviews on TripAdvisor. The place is rundown and filthy. As soon as we checked into room 12, we were almost overwhelmed by the smell of dead mice. I checked the entire room but never found one or a mouse trap for that matter so they must have died in the walls. While looking...

Port Orford is an exceptional place, the ocean bay is lovely and the hotel nearly faces the morning sun which is very unusual for the West Coast. But the room lacked basics like shampoo, a coffee maker and a small frig. Since the only decent coffee is two blocks away we really missed in-room tea and coffee. The bed was...

We had a large room + conservatory complete with rocking chair. It was fairly basic but clean and a wonderful view. Rockney was very laid back and friendly. It was well located everything in the town was walking distance. Good value.

This is a quaint little hotel overlooking the bay. Absolutely beautiful view of the bay from your very own back patio or sliding glass door on the bottom floor. There were only two separate families staying at the hotel so all was very quiet. This is a pet friendly hotel. The owner was very friendly and helpful. There are no...

Stopped here on an overnight drive up the coast and totally loved it. Rockne and his cat 'keeper' met us and made us feel at home. He recommended Griffs on the dock below for a fish dinner which worked out just great. We had a wonderful view over the bay, grey whales spouting in the bay both in the evening...

Three things I think we are all looking for in a place to stay... for it to be clean, a good nights sleep and a nice hot shower. Well this place falls short but with little or no other choices I cannot tell you to pass it by. The owners was friendly and helpful and the place was well kept...
