"Great location but need a primer on hospitality"
I'd stayed at Spindrift Inn in May and had a fine time. The hotel is old, but clean and simple and quiet which is what most should be in my opinion. So this last week I sent my mother-in-law and daughter there for an overnight together at the beach. They got there about 30-40 minutes ahead of check-in time and were unable to check-in, which is fine, […] but the person at the front desk refused to let my 5 year-old use the bathroom after an hour and a half in the car. So immediately hey're not feeling super welcome. Then, when checking out the next day after a fine night, my mother-in-law was greeted by another person at the front desk with "what do you need?". My mother-in-law said "we're guests here," to which the response was once again, "what do you need?" I'm not sure what the word hospitality means to these two employees (hopefully not an owner!), but they certainly need a crash course ASAP as their attitudes did much to spoil what could have been a great hotel experience.

"Walking distance to beach"
The room is a bit old but very clean. And it's just 2 blocks away from the beach which is great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for a beach-loving family"
This hotel is in an old, well-maintained building, and eveything is "dated". Ideal for a family that wants to spend a few days at the beach, cook their own meals and just 'hang out'. It is not a good place to stay for just an overnight for a single or couple. No need for a full kitchen. Too expensive for just a hotel room need.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice motel, would stay there again and will tell family and friends to stay also. Right in the heart of the little town, close to shops and eating establishments. Pleasently surprised at room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was small, but clean. Loved being only a block from the beach, and near restaurants, etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room we stayed in was very small. No air conditioning and no windows. The only windows in that room are the French doors. Felt very claustrophobic. The ceiling above the shower was covered in small dead flies. Very disgusting. The bed was small too, maybe a twin size, so it was hard to sleep. Thankfully this was only for one night. I have no intentions […] coming back to that hole in the wall. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the Beach"
We stayed in a standard room which was ok for us. The internet was very slow and pillows smelled really bad so I had to sleep without pillows.... You can walk to the beach from the motel which is really nice. There are restaurants and cafes around the area, so I guess it is pretty convenient place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location - Could Use Some TLC"
The location is perfect. It is right in the middle of everything, you won't have to drive at all. Walk right down to the beach, out to eat, shopping, etc. Also the parking is great - you get to parallel park right in front of your room. The Inn is all one story high with exterior access to your room. You can hear the ocean waves crashing in the distance […] at night. Overall, it was a great stay for our family. However, all I could think of as I looked around was the amazing potential! The Inn was built in the 40's and pretty much everything was Jerry-rigged, modified, "fixed", and "updated" as cheaply as possible. For example, the front door knob was installed too close to the edge of the door and smashed my finger whenever I closed the door. The bathroom door only only had trim on half of it. The kitchenette light fixture probably cost them $3. I would have had the ugly ceiling popcorn removed. The mattresses are very uncomfortable!! There was no bathroom fan. Instead there is a bathroom window, which opens into the courtyard. The courtyard is about 8' wide x 30' long. All the rooms open into the courtyard and it is nicely landscaped with flowers, has a path down the middle and chairs along the sides. The idea is nice but there is a terrible flaw. We started calling the courtyard "sewage alley" because, literally, all the bathroom windows open into the narrow corridor. You can imagine. But the staff was very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Beach Stay"
We only stayed one night but the hotel was close to everything and easy to get to.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect inexpensive getaway!!"
Great location, close to beach, restaurants, and shops. A perfect inexpensive motel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, but LOUD nightlife!"
The room itself was great...maybe a little spendy for not being right on the beach and for being on the older side. My only real complaint was the bar across the street and the live band they had playing late into the night. It was difficult to sleep, especially for my six year old child. For that alone, I probably won't stay there again. Also, the […] parking is parallel only, which is kind of a pain. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute little intimate for couple.."
Enjoyed being able to walk to everything. Bathroom a bit small.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Everything you could want for the price!"
I was Very impressed with this little inn. It was so close to everything in Manzanita and so affordable. I was thinking we would we would get a run down place, but was surprised that this was a very nice well kept Inn, nicely decorated and furnished. Staff was very accomedating and friendly. As I said you were a block and half away from the beach and […] right in the heart of town, close to resturants and shops. Once you come here you don't need to drive for the rest of the weekend. it is so nice. Really for the price I was very impressed and would recomend it to anyone who was thinking of staying on the oregon coast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

It was great and really close to the house being rented by my son and family, and in-laws. Had a really nice time and I loved my rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect spot for a good price"
Room was very clean and front desk friendly. The courtyard is nice too. We were there on a Monday and it was very quiet. Good place to stay in Manzanita for a good price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Travel back in time...."
This is an older mom and pop "motel" that has been refurbished. Our large room was clean and quite acceptable, with a DVD player, refrigerator, microwave, and small dining table. Our room had a shower only (no tub). We could walk (1 to 2 blocks) to the nearby bakery, restaurant and also a grocery store. Ocean was a couple of blocks away. They have an […] extensive DVD library for loan and there was no phone in the room. As nearly everyone has a cell, not really a problem. It reminded me of traveling with my family when I was a kid. I would recommend this place, but it cost nearly as much as the newer chain places with "suite" type rooms. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Decent for the price"
Decent for the price. Shower was good and strong. Close to beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
Wish I could give it a 10! There are 14 rooms (we stayed in #4), freshly painted; comfortable beds with quilt comforters, shams, eyelet bed skirts; mini fridge, microwave, coffe pot, ceramic mugs....coffee, tea ages, and hot cocoa packets provided. Flat screen tv, DVD player (DVD 's available from front office for free); hottest water and excellent […] shower...in addition, the room had a back door that opened into a flower garden with chairs...a delightful place to read, rest, or just unwind. I felt like I was at a seaside cottage prepared for me by my grandmother. The office door was handcrafted...unbelieveably beautiful craftmanship..The beach is a block and a half away, easily accessible walkways. The pizza place is awesome....homemade crust, sauce, and homemade Italian sausage....not greasy or too spicy at all. I was so sorry that we were only staying one night...will plan a longer stay o. My next trip to Oregon. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was adorable. Small, but felt spacious. We enjoyed our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
An older facility, but very well maintained and nicely decorated. Very close to the beach, restaurants and a deli/market. Plus, out the back doors (between the two rows of units) there was a narrow courtyard, with plantings and chairs to enjoy the outdoors.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Spindrift on N. Oregon Coast is a delight"
I first noticed the Spindrift several years ago when I was staying in a nearby town. While driving through Manzanita then, I was taken by the Spindrift's beautiful lobby door--heavy carved wood inset with smaller pieces of driftwood and beach-polished stones. I remembered the name and door and decided I would stay there on future visits. We were not […] disappointed. Excellent value, room was very clean and though quaintly decorated in mismatched styles, it just added to the charm. Staff was very pleasant and efficient--I've stayed in higher-end places that couldn't match the Spindrift's sparkling cleanliness. The back door opened into a pretty little garden, we were offered free movies from a good selection in the lobby and they had free wi-fi network hook-up. There was good food, several antique and crafts shops within walking distance and the beach was less than a block down the street. I'll be back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Pleasant stay."
Comfortable,clean and very reasonably priced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect little hotel."
Close to the beach and on the main strip of town. Definitely recommend!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, quiet and clean with basic comforts and a comfortable bed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Spindrift Inn is one of our favorite places to stay. Conveniently located, within walking distance of everything, you can see and hear the beach from this location! A great option versus the overcrowded Cannon Beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and quaint, super convenient location"
The hotel is old, but that's a good thing in this case. Our room was small, but clean and perfectly comfortable. Manzanita is tiny but you can't get much more centrally located than the Spindrift. The beach is only short walk away which makes for a quiet night since the surf isn't pounding right outside the window.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Calm and relaxing atmosphere"
Enjoyed our stay in this relaxing environment. Anyone who is looking for a quiet, relaxing time away, will like it too.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Easy beach access"
We enjoyed every minute of our stay. It was restful and comfortable. Our room was surrounded with flowering plants and the sounds of the ocean. Everything we needed was available to us. It is a very charming place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Cheap, clean, and right next to the beach. Rooms are small but good value overall.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our stay at Spindrift was great. The staff accommodated our very late arrival by placing the key in a lockbox on the door, and allowing us to checkin in the morning. The room was very large, clean, and nicely decorated. This is 50's nostalgia - if you are looking for modern, stay elsewhere. BTW - Really appreciated the hot chocolate in the room to combat […] the chilly Oregon spring! There is a great coffee shop steps away, and the beach is only a few step further. Have already booked my next stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice Hotel. Excellent value. Near the beach. Within smelling distance of some very good pizza. Left Coast Siesta Mexican Restaurant is 3 minutes walk away and is really, really good. 1 minute walk to a very nice pub accross the street. Very nice people at every turn. The beach is the best.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
All four girls in my group thought it was a cute, comfortable place to stay. Everything was very clean and felt more personal than a hotel. The lovely person who checked us in was so helpful and pleasant. We would all definately stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a wonderful overnight family getaway planned and it couldn't have been more perfect. The Spindrift was clean and hospitable and centrally located so we were able to walk to the beach, grocery store and restaurants. Can't wait to go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
If you want to stay at the beach it would be ok, but it is actually a motel, not a hotel. It was kind of high priced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I would recommend this hotel. Quiet, very close to the beach- 1 short block. Restaurants, bakery close by. Staff friendly. It is an older hotel but it is clean and comfortable and reasonable in price. Would stay here again. Short distance to other area beaches etc.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"small town charm"
we really enjoyed our stay. pub, grocery, restuarants so close & friendly. the best part is having the beach 2 blocks down the street. we were able to park once & walk everywhere. the town is small & cozy. we liked having the post office, grocery store, pub, candy store, spa & specialty shops available. we'll be back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel room condition and comfort was good. The host was anxious to lock up the office upon our arrival and wasn't very friendly upon our arrival. We asked for extra towels, soap, etc. and were not treated in a professional and kind manner. The town of Manzanita, OR was very nice and cozy. Great restaurants and everything was convenience. Had a nice […] walk on the beach which was about 1-2 blocks away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"funky, classic, and filled with character"
Very small accommodations and a little overpriced but in a nice location a block from the beach. My room had a fridge that didn't work and another one next to it which I though was very tacky. Also, no bathtub. But for the most part, it was like spending the night in the 50's so not a totally bad experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great getaway hotel"
What an adorable little hotel. It's small and old but my room was clean, comfortable and roomy. All the expected items are provided: fridge, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, flat screen TV, video player (with free movies in the office), etc. The bed was comfortable. My room was dog friendly. The staff I met was lovely and helpful. It's a block off […] the beach. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"On the Oregon Coast"
It was excellent. Right in the heart of a beautiful little town on the Oregon coast... within walking distance of the beach. Literally you can see the ocean waves from right in front of the hotel... it is excellent. I will stay there every time I go to Manzanita. It's quiet, secluded and quaint.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Inn Keeper to help you!"
I have been to Manzanita several times and have never stayed at any of the Inns there until now. It was the best decision! They have free dvds to play in your room and very nice flat scree tvs for those days when its just a tad too wet to venture out. The inn keeper is so wonderfully nice and helpful, I want to return ASAP and we just left!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The wife came up from Calif while I have a job in the Hillsboro area.We decided on this hotel due to the remarks we found on the internet.. Let me start out saying we got there in early December.Knowing that the weather would be cold and raining.To our surprize it was sunny and coolish.NICE.Got to the hotel and was told we were the only guests. at that […] time.Ended in room #9 The women behind the desk was helpful with all our. needs and was very hospitable. Ok here goes,if your the type that needs all the bells and whistles stay the hell away from this one.When you enter your room you will notice how clean it is.A large flat screen hits your eye,plus the queen bed with plenty of covers will get you to test her out real quick.Didn't expect the frig and microwave either.Bathroom is small but clean and right to the point.Shower kicks butt and no problem with the abundance of hot water. You got a mexican restruant on the corner ,which is good stuff,not high in the price.Pizza across the street (did not go there) and a coffee shop next to that.Kind of got the feeling that if you were a local things would be better for ya at that coffee stand. Clean beach,but not to many shells.Shells are for mama) If you are into geqcaching its there too. As far as I'm concern this is good bang for your buck.Good destanation with a cool old school beach hotel. We stayed 2 nights.We'll be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quaint with Great Location"
Did not have great expectations due to price. Was pleasantly surprised. Location was a block from the beach. Room was clean for a beach motel and the mattresses were quite comfortable, although sheets and linens had small holes. Nice to have microwave and fridge and coffee maker. Grocery store was across street and plenty of eateries within a couple […] of blocks. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
