Positive Reviews

Well-appointed suites with a homely feel.

Previous guests have described suites at the hotel as being well-appointed. Many enjoy having kitchen facilities on hand, while the inclusion of separate living and sleeping quarters is said to give accommodations a homely feel.

Oceanfront location close to everything.

The hotel is located on the oceanfront, offering direct access to the sand dunes, expansive sands and Pacific waters. A trail runs directly to the beach from the hotel, making access quick and easy. Meanwhile, guests report that the boutique shops, casual cafés, restaurants and other Ocean Shores attractions are all within walking distance.

Good standard of cleanliness.

The majority of guests have been impressed with the standard of cleanliness at the hotel. According to reports, the housekeeping team does a good job of keeping rooms and communal areas clean and tidy.

Negative Reviews

Sofa beds due a replacement.

Some of the hotel suites come complete with a sofa bed, allowing for larger families to bunk together. However, guests reports that these sofa beds are old and well-used, going on to suggest that mattresses are due a replacement.

Some gripes with pet-friendly policy.

The hotel's status as pet-friendly has led to a number of complaints. Firstly, not all travellers wish to stay in rooms next to those containing a barking dog. Meanwhile, guests travelling with their four-legged friend are not always impressed that the hotel states that pets cannot be left alone in a room at any time.

No on-site breakfast facilities.

The hotel does not offer any breakfast options, a detail that has proven unpopular with a number of guests. Those looking for early morning sustenance have to seek alternative options in town, which may not always be convenient.
