The location is wonderful - right above the beach with easy stairs to the sand. All the rooms front the ocean. Our room was very spacious, just very basic. No frills here. Price was reasonable. Bed was comfortable, shower worked well. We had one minor maintenance problem which was resolved in a reasonable time frame. First floor rooms have small...

This property is right on the beach, with great views overlooking the Pacific. This is an older property with lots of stairs and no elevator. The room was tired and small, but clean. It did not have air conditioning, but it did have a fridge and microwave. Internet service was non-existent and the room did not have enough power outlets....

The view was amazing, right on the beach but the hotel was a bit off the beaten track. The staff were ok, nothing exceptional. The facilities in the room were very basic and the furniture dated and scratched. A bit of an investment would add to the this property particularly a wind break on the deck which could not be...

I absolutely enjoyed my stay here. The decor was modern.The front desk was very friendly and answered my questions kindly. As far as I can tell every room has a view of the ocean. The hotel has a washer/dryer. There is no elevator though and beach access is down two more flights of stairs, however there is a lawn with...

Lincoln is a nice, quaint city with a definite oceanside vibe. Sailor Jack had amazing vistas, and we had a great ocean front view from our 3rd floor room. The beach was socked in most of our stay but we were able to enjoy the beach/sand/scenery just the same. The room was average, but then again you aren't there for...

My family reserved 8 rooms for a mini family reunion. We had to change the reservations around several times and the staff were always friendly and accommodating. My 90 yr old parents were unable to go to the beach but still had a fabulous time since they had a room on the ground floor with a deck overlooking the beach...

We stayed at Sailor Jacks twice in the last few months. The staff is really nice and the rooms are nice and clean. It is an older place but it is kept up nicely. And if you have any problems the staff takes care of you quickly

The room was clean, the view was great, the beach access was good. I chose this motel because it was dog friendly, however all grassy areas around the motel are off limits to dogs. The motel is located close to restaurants, shopping and the casino.

At first I was not sure about booking a room at this hotel. Had stayed there many years ago and it wasn't quite what I had expected but was very pleasantly surprised. The room was a bit dated mostly by the size of the bathroom but other than that it was great. The beds were comfortable and it had the...

The room was large, nice deck to listen to the ocean from, cozy and quiet location, and the bed and pillows won me over instantly! My fiance and I made our first beach trip and stayed a night and rented a couple movies from the office. We've decided there's only one place we'd like to stay for our honeymoon in...
