We loved our stay and wanted to stay longer if we didn't have to work the next day. The staff were wonderful. They worked hard finding a room that best fit our needs, the price excellent. The condo was gorgeous, I would mind living in it. Beach only 3 short blocks, grocery store across the street. Loved it all

I saw all the great reviews for the Sandy Cove Inn, but from the moment we checked in things went downhill. Stayed in the Downing house for 2 nights with a couple of friends for a clamming trip. After I booked it and my card was charged, i received a second email saying that the booking was going to be...

Great motel experience! Clean room and super friendly staff! And they allow Big dogs, which I was very happy about! This was my first trip to Oregon and I will be back very soon! I like that it was super close to the beach and restaurants walking distance. And a market right across the street for any items you might...

Returning to the Sandy Cove Inn for a winter trip. Charming renovated motel with small, well-appointed lobby. Always welcoming and well-attended, with secure, laid-back atmosphere. Great location at the south end of the Seaside promenade - a short block walk to the beach. Pet-friendly - pets and guests all seem well-behaved!

This is a great, small hotel in a quiet area. It's easy to walk 2 blocks to the golf course or 2 blocks to the beach. It's right at the very south end of the boardwalk and the beach there is lovely and uncrowded. The rooms are small, but nicely decorated and the price of a pet room is very...

Possibly the best check-in experience I have ever had with Damon greeting us by name. This was our second stay at the Sandy Cove Inn and I would go back in a heartbeat. The rooms and lobby are beyond clean, the staff very friendly and accommodating. A few blocks/a quick walk, from the beach with a market and pub across...

Well I got a Groupon deal for two night for my family and I that was a great price. The mishap was that when we arrived that evening I met another couple who had been in the lobby waiting for about 20 minutes for check in. I then waited with them for about another 45 minutes until someone finally showed...

This was such a great place to stay for the night! I get really nervous about motels, but this one was very, very clean and the room we stayed in (#19) was nicely decorated. We booked this room online at booking.com and the cost was $79 for the night. The site assigned us the "Monopoly" themed room, but the extra-friendly...

We two older males wanted to watch TV or read while sitting on the futon, the only upholstered piece of furniture, but since the futon is under a bunk bed, the bunk bed blocked the ceiling light and there were NO reading lights there, or for the bed (except a small lamp on the night table on one side of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sandy Cove Inn is a family-owned boutique motel located two blocks from the beach and promenade in historic Seaside, Oregon. We are on the quiet end of town but still very close to the town’s attractions, and we combine the personal touch with modern conveniences like free WiFi and some pet-friendly rooms.We have everything from basic rooms to vacation rentals, and with both a market and restaurant just across the street, we are the perfect place for a fun, peaceful stay on the Oregon Coast.We even have themed rooms like the Wave Room with surf art, a wave mural and an actual surfboard; there’s also a 1940s Room, a Monopoly Room, and a Boat Room, among several others.We’re one of the last family-owned motels in town, and that means a lot to us; in fact, we live right here on the property. We will share some of our favorite activities and places to eat with you, and we can’t wait to make you feel at home in our home. ... more   less
