Neat place located close to beach. Perfect for passing through or spend the night at the beach. Staff is friendly. Rooms are clean and beds comfortable. Stayed there every time we are in the area and have always been satisfied.

Old motel - Good things : decent shower pressure (had a room on 1st floor) and reasonably clean, good location . Bad things :1/4 inch of toilet paper left on roll (I guess they assume guests may steal this) and you better notice this while the office is open, a bit noisy,

We are sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your stay. Our office hours are 9 am to 9 pm and we do post our personal cell phone numbers on the door of the office for guests in need of anything can call us even in the middle of the night. We do put extra rolls of toilet paper in every room and I’m sorry if that was missed in yours. Unfortunately if you are traveling during the summer on the coast it is a bit more busy which can sometimes lead to a bit more noise. We do price ourselves competitively with the other area motels and given that all but three of our units have full kitchens our prices are more than reasonable. As for dated and tired we are working tirelessly to update each room and in the one year since purchasing the motel we have updated over half of the rooms. We would have loved to be able to address your concerns with you while you were here rather than through this review if you would have given us the opportunity. Again, we are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us and sincerely hope you find accommodations that better suit your needs in the future.

Stayed here for a quick overnight at the beach. The owners are real nice and friendly, and the room we had was clean and functional. It's quiet at night, and the bed was pretty comfy. There was a nice big screen smart TV that enabled us to watch Netflix, etc. which was a plus.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and provide your feedback. As we explained when you asked about the microwave we just celebrated at the end of July our one year anniversary of having purchased the Anchorage Motel and are working tirelessly to bring our cute vintage property up to date while still keeping some of the vintage qualities our guests love about it. We have replaced appliances in at least half of the rooms as well as upgraded most of the televisions to larger ones but all of the appliances we have in the rooms are all in working order. We do have fans to provide to guests upon request had we known that you wanted a fan we would have been more than happy to provide one to you. I am sorry about the linens I am a little confused as to them being scratchy because we purchase new linens on a regular basis and I assure you that they are not cheap. We do have our carpets professionally cleaned every 3 months as well as cleaning them ourselves in between those cleanings. We have consulted with an electrician and unfortunately at this time due to the age of the building it would be too costly to do a complete electrical upgrade as walls would need to come down and everything would need to be pulled out and the cost of this within the first year of us doing business would equate to huge rate hikes and we did not want to do that to our guests. I assure you that it is something we will eventually do as the time permits. We do ask guests to please do their own dishes as most places with full kitchens do and upon check-in we do advise guests that housekeeping will do the dishes for you if you do not want to for a nominal fee. I am sorry that you feel our small motel is not a good choice until the renovations are complete and certainly hope that you will visit us again to see the progress we are making. Again, we are a small owner operator motel and we do work very hard to ensure that our guests feel welcome, comfortable and well rested when they leave by providing them with great service and a clean environment to relax in. Thank you again for providing your feedback.

Pacific City is a nice Oregon beach town. This older style motel is about a half mile from the beach, near a few restaurants and a gas station shop. About 10 rooms. Interior of room was tired, but everything worked and it had a kitchenette if you wanted to cook. But if you

I was referred to the Anchorage Motel by another local motel that did not have any vacancies. Our room door was close to a smelly dumpster. When we started unpacking I noticed used tissue on the floor behind the nightstand and there was only a quarter roll of toilet paper in

Ma'am we did apologize for your disappointment in your stay with us. You are the first person to complain about the location of the dumpster we have had hundreds of people stay in the exact same room you were in and have had nothing but great reviews. When your father came to the office he said it was a light noise and that he just wanted us to be aware because he thought maybe it was a raccoon or squirrel that had gotten into the attic space. That is when we explained to him that it is a small loft apartment that our son and daughter-in-law live in at which point he advised that he did see the door at the end of the building and wondered about that. He also said it was no big deal as well as the roll of toilet paper when he asked for an additional roll he joked about it. As we explained we are a small owner operator motel and work very hard to ensure that our guests have an enjoyable experience with us and have apologized for your experience. Had your father made it known that you were this extremely unhappy with your stay we would have worked something out with you guys. He treated it like it was no big deal making jokes about it. I did apologize for the noise and that we missed getting an extra roll of toilet paper in the room, he never mentioned anything about used tissues being on the floor by the nightstand. I asked him if there was anything we could do and again he acted as if it was no big deal not a real inconvenience making jokes about it all. His presentation of the concerns is the polar opposite of yours that is why I said it is hard for us to know if we are receiving the blame for another stop on your trip. We are also available 24/7 to our guests which we make known to every guest upon check-in via the motel office phone or our personal cell phones which we post on the door to the office when closed so you could have called us the morning you checked out and we would have been right there to have the discussion with you about it. A reminder that we are a pet friendly motel and we did have a lot of dogs on property the night you stayed with us. As much as we ask people to maintain control of their animals dogs do bark from time to time and even the best pet owner cannot keep that from happening. Again, we did not think it was a big concern because your father told us it was not a big deal.
