We stayed here for 1 night, we were looking for a place and luckily rooms were available. The gentleman that booked us in was very helpful and friendly. The room, although not modern, was clean and comfortable. There was WiFi, a fridge, microwave and a TV. Pretty much all you could need. Also a decent sized room. It is located...

This is a small hotel I stayed at because nothing else was available. I stayed in a smoking room as it was the only room left in town. Surprisingly, it didn't smell like smoke. There are no carpets, so that probably helped keep the smoke smell at bay. For $75/night plus tax, I didn't feel like it was worth the...

We had two rooms one was fine but the other had an odd musty smell. The place was good but felt a little in need of care and attention; screens needed refixing, walls were marked. Wifi connection was intermittent. The location is good and the manager was friendly. The beds were big and comfy

A new experience to have a good rest in a nice spot in Gold Beach. We appreciated a clean room with fridge, microwave, TV, Wi-Fi, coffee room, and especially the kindness and the hospitality of Satish.

The room furthest away from hwy 101 are for their long term guests so the rooms are noisy. There was no coffee pot or alarm clock in the room and there is no breakfast what so ever. They had removed the lights from the ceiling and just left the hole where the entire fixture was supposed to be. There was...

We booked a king bed room here at the very last minute, and because it was November, the rate was very reasonable. We arrived very late, but the manager woke up to check us in. The room was very clean and unexpectedly spacious. The bedspread, pillows, and towels were a little worn, but overall a comfortable stay. The shower had...
