This motel is rather old but is very well maintained, clean and quiet. It's located neat the south end of the boardwalk, so it's an easy stroll into town, or on to the beach. The friendly staff recommended a breakfast spot (Osprey Cafe) just across the street, and this was an excellent choice. We will stay here again when we... More

A quaint motel, which was clean and well run. The staff was pleasant and very helpful. They do not offer breakfast, but have refrigerator and coffee maker in the room. It was reasonably priced and offered an AARP discount (possibly others). The rooms (bed & bath) were uniquely decorated, small & comfortable and not modern and no A/C. It is... More

Memorable inn with personalized rooms. Close to the beach and within walking distance of restaurants and shops. Small rooms, but cozy, clean and furnished with everything we needed. Helpful recommendations for places to eat out. Warm welcome during check-in and an easy self check-out process. Coffee provided in the morning.

This is a really nice little family motel. The rooms are individually themed/decorated which adds a nice touch. It is an older motel but the rooms are clean and pleasant.

A step above your typical roadside motels. Very cute and appealing from the outside, updated and clean place to stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Had a good night's sleep! No breakfast was offered but there was coffee in the room.

You definitely pay for what you get. Simple clean location. No frills. Walls were thin, water pressure was not great, staff was nice, location was quite. Overalls solid affordable place. We were there for a quick over night so this worked out.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sandy Cove Inn is a family-owned boutique motel located two blocks from the beach and promenade in historic Seaside, Oregon. We are on the quiet end of town but still very close to the town’s attractions, and we combine the personal touch with modern conveniences like free WiFi and some pet-friendly rooms.We have everything from basic rooms to vacation rentals, and with both a market and restaurant just across the street, we are the perfect place for a fun, peaceful stay on the Oregon Coast.We even have themed rooms like the Wave Room with surf art, a wave mural and an actual surfboard; there’s also a 1940s Room, a Monopoly Room, and a Boat Room, among several others.We’re one of the last family-owned motels in town, and that means a lot to us; in fact, we live right here on the property. We will share some of our favorite activities and places to eat with you, and we can’t wait to make you feel at home in our home. ... more   less
