We loved the location and ocean views. Manzanita is beautiful little town, but you can't go wrong anywhere in the area. Rooms are out dated, but very inexpensive. Would recommend owners to put a grill near pick nick table. It would have been great grilling locally caught fish.

Clean and comfortable basic room with a great location! Was happy to get a room at such a good price for one night and enjoyed the heated outdoor pool. Would reserve an oceanfront room next time as they are only a little bit more expensive and much roomier with a great view!

All depends on the room you have. Some have a sea view - they cost about usd 100 or so. Go for it. We had the 31 on the first floor : 2 queens bed, small kitchen, shower room. Spacious and nice sea view. No bfast is served but the room comes with a coffee machine and coffee so you...

Without reservations, we were lucky to get a room at this motel. The room was very adequate - clean, comfortable bed, good shower (with lots of water pressure!), a gas fireplace, and a wide view of the ocean across the street. The attendant was helpful re choice of restaurant for our dinner and providing extra tea bags. Despite the rain...

Our second visit to this property, stayed above office in room 127, best room available for ocean view, large picture windows and very spacious! Not fancy but just perfect for watching the ocean waves,and the people and dogs on the beach. Delightful small towne vibe, good pub, small markets and two good coffee shops! All you need for a few...

We loved the motel and the town of Manzanita - very quaint and quiet - unlike towns to the north. The motel is right across from the beach so you can see and hear the ocean from just about anywhere. Pretty basic rooms but clean and nice.

Stayed for two nights in one of the downstairs units at the "Budd" building. Room was generally clean and well-equipped. There were two beds in this family unit and one of the beds were quite comfortable and the other (in the living room) was not at all. Nice little patio to sit out on, watch the ocean, and have snacks....

I have been trying for the last three days to contact this motel to make reservations. The 1-800 number is not answered (I finally started keeping a tally - 27 calls, minimum of 12 rings each time). I also sent an email to the front desk email listed on the website with no response. I think I'm taking my business...

My 2nd floor room had great views of the ocean--from the deck and from the bed!!. The beach is easily accessible (just walk across a frontage road) and uncrowded. Manzanita is a small very dog friendly town. Low key and relaxing. I was doing a coastal road trip with my dog--I explored Cannon Beach, but was happy I choose Manzanita...

The way furniture was arranged, the room was small to get around. Didn't like coffee provided or that they did not have bar soap or hair conditioner. So bring your own. There was no air conditioner. 2nd day was a bit warm and didn't want to leave the ground level window open all night.
