This was a very pleasant surprise for us ! We visited the Park for 5 days, hiking in Sol Duc, Quinault and Hoh rain forest and each day looked forward to returning to this wonderful beach. The 2 nd floor room in the Seacrest offered a view from our deck every morning, and we slept peacefully with the surf sounds. The room comes with a good size refrigerator ( see photo ) , very comfortable queen size beds, a large bathroom with separate sink area outside of toilet/ shower area ( so important for getting ready quickly in the morn.) and a wonderful deck. The cabins looked very nice also. The location is wonderful for very long walks on a flat, wide beach. We watched grey whales daily ! It was Labor day weekend , but the water is COLD(can't say you would ever go deeper than your ankles ) . The only issue is food, or the lack of restaurant choices. The lodge has one restaurant, with a very limited, expensive menu and has a very hard time keeping up . Recommend reservations, but even then, best to not expect much. One night, vegan lasagna was good, but the next night, they used carrots and broccoli due to lack of other vegs. Really. We stopped at Wal-mart coming from Sea-Tac and stocked up for breakfast and lunch. So glad we did- Forks is about 40minutes drive away and has limited but OK Mexican food. Quinault's restaurant was just OK too. But...go for Olympic National Park, the hiking trails and this very peaceful, beautiful beach/lodge! The staff light a campfire every night , the sunsets are a major nightly event , there is a water bottle filling station outside of small convenience store and we could not get enough of walking the beach :)

Room Tip: ask for the second floor of the Seacreast Lodge, there are only 10 rooms total in the building

First, it is casual rustic. Franklin stoves in cabins on the cliffs. Firepits on the cliff, etc. Restaurant is good but it's the only one for miles, so make reservations when, or before you plan to eat. Menu limited and ignore the background music. But the staff is friendly and accommodating. Now, for the hotel itself, magical venue overlooking the Pacific and the tidal pools and tidal basins full of huge logs from probably centuries of wash. Look for whale plumes in the distance. You can cook in, so that might be option to eating out and a lot cheaper but bring it with you as the only market is in Forks coming south.

Room Tip: Cliffside have private ocean view while traditional rooms are not as scenic if at all.

My husband and I stayed in a bluff side cabin for two nights and loved every minute. It is a short walk to the beach from the cabins and there are Adirondack chairs and picnic tables everywhere at the cabins to enjoy the sights and sounds of the beach. There is no Wi-Fi or t.v. and very limited cell service, so if those things are important to you this is not for you. My husband and I very much enjoyed being unplugged for a couple of days! At low tide you can go to nearby Ruby Beach or Beach 4 to tide pool and see sea stars, anemone, and many many other sea life. The staff there are wonderful and bent over backwards to make sure we had a great experience. The cabins were clean and had a log burning fireplace - with the wood provided - which was great after a chilly evening at the beach. There were yoga mats and walking sticks in the cabin for us to use while we were there - they have thought of everything! We have been home less than a week and we are ready to go back!!

Spent the night here in one of the cottages overlooking the Pacific . It was clean , comfortable and had very nice amenities . It was foggy when we were there and was still beautiful. I can only imagine what the view would be like on a clear day. Staff was friendly and accommodating and the food at the restaurant was very good. Close to Quinault Lake area , Ruby Beach and the Hoh Rain Forest . I would stay there again .

We had a room in the lodge and got lucky enough to have a corner room with windows on two sides and was facing the ocean. The views are stupendous however the cost of the room and the meals served in the dining room are way overpriced. We had a guaranteed check in a 4PM but didn't get into our room until about 5. The toilet had a red paint on it and a wash cloth with the red paint left on the table and an empty Kleenex box. There is no internet or tv. The cottages appear to be pet friendly but not the lodge. I will give the employees a kudo as very friendly and helpful (except for housekeeping). I would not stay there again.

Room Tip: Room 8 in the lodge.

Do not miss out on reserving a bluff cabin. It is totally worth it. I reserved a year out by calling reservations and basically telling them when I wanted it and what I wanted and when the day was open they reserved me a cabin and sent me a confirmation. Go for cabins Macy, overly, 13 or 14 as they are perfectly located in front of the ocean and right near the back with the trees where bald eagles nest. We had cabin 5 and we loved it but it has more of a river view than ocean view. The cabins had a separate bedroom as well as a queen bed behind the living room which also has a futon sofa. It has a full kitchen with pans, utensils and plates etc. their pans are non-stick so I wish I had brought my stainless steel pan but we were glad to have the ability to cook. The kitchen nook has wonderful windows to see the view. We BBQ out back each night. They claim they don't offer wi-go, however we had a couple of bars and were able to use the internet while we were there. The beach has easy access and it was amazing to walk out at low tide. We were able to join the ranger tide pool walk at ruby beach and it was awesome. This is a special place but reserve early to get the room you want for the best experience.

The cabins themselves are fine--the bed was very comfortable & there is a small kitchenette. The cabins face the ocean, which made for a spectacular sunset view. There is a restaurant on site, which was terrific. Staff was extraordinarily helpful & friendly. The beach below the cabins is very cool--lots of tide pools to explore.
