My husband and I stayed at the Sand Dollar Inn and Suites on our mini Washington road trip, and this place turned out to be a hidden gem. While the small town itself doesn’t offer a lot to do, (perhaps it was the time of year) the ocean, beaches, and scenery are beautiful to behold. Hot tip: Driving on the...

Just stayed there this past Saturday night. We stayed in room 6 and the place was spotless. My husband is a school custodian for over 28 years and he is picky where he stays...he wants clean....and the man checks odd places to see if people clean good. This placed passed the test. The bed was fine and the heat worked...

We booked a room here on our honeymoon and the staff was very sweet. We booked a last minute reservation the day before and requested to check in early, which they were very accommodating of. However, there was not any hot water and we didn't discover this until the office was closed and we had to get on the road...

The room was really clean, decorated in a beach-related motif and as an added bonus from room 4 I had a partial view of the beach! The staff is incredibly friendly from the moment I booked the trip when I was called to make sure I meant to book a room in Washington State and not Washington DC but also...

We stayed at Sand Dollar Inn during the annual Beachcomber’s Fun Fair down in Ocean Shores because of its access to beautiful Pacific Beach. It’s a quaint and unpretentious place with down-to-earth hospitality. Although somewhat basic in nature, it has tidy rooms and beach character. We would go back- it's a great value in a great location!

Thank you for your review! We hope you will visit us again. While the Sand Dollar is humble, our new hotel is more of a boutique property. You can check it out on our website. Hope to see you again!

Stayed at the Sand dollar inn this weekend for the razor clam dig. Decent place, nothing fancy, clean with helpful staff. They have clam cleaning station in the back which is nice to have. The inn is within walking distance of the beach. About 5 min walk if that. Decent restaurant at the Navy facility. Chicken fried steak was good...

This inn is old but clean and gives you friendly services. It's nearby water about couple minutes by walking. Gas station and convenience stores are within a block. One negative is thin wall. I could hear next room's noises. Other than that, you can relax and enjoy vacation.
