We are budget-wise travelers and stayed at the Hillcrest Inn on a recent trip to the Oregon Coast. It was a wonderful place to stay. The room was immaculate and the bed was very comfortable. Plus, Ruth (the owner) was extremely helpful in recommending things to do and places to eat. We would definitely stay at the Hillcrest again.

Was apprehensive about what I would find at the 2 bedroom cottage we rented - the photo showed a smallish room with old style tv, but it would serve our needs and give us more space than a 2 queen bed room which is the standard offering. Was AMAZED at the cute, roomy cottage and it's comfort and cleanliness~~~~ and...

We stayed here for three nights while on a motorcycle trip and just loved the place. We did chose one of the small rooms but it had everything we needed and it was nice. The staff was just wonderful to us, if you needed anything for your stay they would help you out. They have a great location for walking...

This is a very clean hotel, that has an inviting atmosphere. Our room was a queen, with a large whirlpool tub, and a gas fireplace. We also had coffeemaker, microwave, and fridge. There were plenty of towels, and really nice personal items such as shampoo, conditioner, etc. The bed was quite comfy, and there were extra pillows. Our room was...

Older place but comfortable and clean with both cottages and rooms. All non-smoking, several pet friendly. Walking distance (two blocks, did not use car for three days) to fun downtown with lots of food, drink and shopping, and just a block off the beach. All very convenient. Don (retired Marine) and Ruth were superb hosts, most helpful, even with library...

First off, the owners couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. Really lovely couple that went out of their way to make sure we found the room we wanted for the price (which couldn't be beat), and were comfortable.

I'm so happy I stayed here. Everyone was so nice and friendly. Best hotel I have ever stayed at. The room was awesome, they have DVDs to watch, very close to the beach, and they offer buckets and towels to borrow for the sand. The jet tubs are awesome. I couldn't have asked for a better hotel experience. Thank you...
