Sandpiper Beach Resort
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Pacific Beach
Reviewed 16 February 2017

I stayed here with friends in January to conduct a retreat for a non-profit group we volunteer with, and it was the perfect location. We rented a large 3 bedroom cabin that could comfortably sleep 10 people in the bedrooms, although we only had 7 of us. We had three large couches, picture windows, fireplace, mudroom, large open kitchen, and dining room.

Of course we were there during the off season, but that was better for crowds and rates. Sandpiper is a great place for couples, large groups, business retreats, and pleasure, we certainly had a good time.

Room Tip: Try coming during an off season for best rates and availability. We came in january and it was sunny...

We rented a large apartment for our family of 6. We had 3 baths, 3 bedrooms, a fully stocked kitchen with dishwasher and a very large great room. The leather sofas and fireplace were perfect for our relaxing cool rainy weekend. The view from the huge picture windows is spectacular and the wide flat beach was wonderful for misty walks with the dog. The resort has a variety of accommodations and we had the largest available. There are markets and restaurants within a few miles. We stocked up on supplies and enjoyed eating at our large dining table. Although the décor is dated and a bit shabby we felt completely comfortable.

My family and I were so excited to be staying in a cabin (cabin A) right on the Pacific Ocean. We were splurging on a "wonderful" place on the last two nights of our road trip of the Olympic peninsula. Imagine our dissapointment as we approached our cabin to see that the outward appearance was not only rundown but the front door desperately needed a coat of paint! (Strike 1) "Ok, well, the inside will be better," I thought. Nope. The musty smell over took us as we entered our "splurge". (Strike 2) However, we were immediately drawn to the view we had of the ocean, but the view was distracted by the poor shape of the sliding glass door. It definitely needed replaced as you could not see through the moisture stuck inside the window. (Strike 3) As my heart was sinking, I was thinking, "Wow, we are paying close to $400 a night for this dump? We have been taken on this place!" I then checked out the bathroom. Total disbelief! "How can this be okay for my family's health?" I thought. I was totally overcome by the smell of MOLD. I knew this wasn't okay to breathe in. (Strike 4) I knew this was a mistake when I saw my daughter sulking in the chair on the verge of tears. I knew she hated it.

The whole cabin was "weird". The mold issue was my main concern. My lungs were affected by it on the last night when I took a shower, as I was a wheezy and my lungs "itched". The cabin was dated. The furniture was old. The place needed a deep clean. The cabinet to the garbage can was gross. Luckily I brought my Clorox wipes with me.

They clearly have a mold issue that is beyond the "pine sol" cleaning method of ridding it. (That was Annie's response to the mold issue). I don't think she understands the health issue here. The mold is in the wood and needs replaced, not cleaned. The creepy basement was OVERWHELMED with the smell of mold. My son looked inside and retrieved a boogy board to use. I hope the furniture we saw in the basement wasn't to be used again. Really disgusting.

Customer service was not good. I was never welcomed when I checked in. In fact, I had to ask directions to the cabin. I was never asked how our stay was when we had to go to the office to get more toilet paper. I was never thanked for staying there. I did not get an apology for the issues I brought up, only reasons why they were the way they were (cost, always mold issues, only deep clean once a year, no time between guests to clean good).

The ocean view was beautiful, but not worth the $$$ to stay in this rundown place. I definitely would not recommend the Sandpiper to anyone.

The only good thing about this resort is the close access to the beach. $400 a nite for the cabin we stayed in is outrageous, bathroom smelled of mold. Very outdated, will never ever stay there again.

Room Tip: do not choose a cabin

Most amazing view and location. BUT the cabins are so incredibly outdated. The beds are horrible, the furniture is outdated and falling apart. The shower looked so bad we refused to use it.

Cabin is stocked but they didn't provide us with more than one trash bag. Now screen door.

New stove, new coffee pot and toaster. For what you pay - you could get a much nicer place.

We wont be back

We have returned to Sandpiper numerous times to be welcomed to our beach home away from home. The views are breathtaking from the large private deck which faces ever changing scenery of the Pacific Ocean. The sunsets are second to none, we especially enjoy viewing them from the rockers on the deck. We find the pot belly stoves and rainy day puzzles in the room to be cozy and comforting. The rooms are always impeccably clean. The owners remember us each time we visit and make us feel welcomed. If you are looking for updated and stuffy pretense, head a mile down the road to Seabrook Village. In my book, the Sandpiper is the real deal, a perfect backdrop to a lovely vacation.

Room Tip: Room number 8 is our all time favorite for sunset viewing.

Customer service and price are super. The setting is incredible right on the beach with incredible views, but the rooms/cabins--while clean--haven't been updated in about 25 years. Carpets are down right nasty and bedding is questionable. We stayed right above the gift shops and had three large glass window views and a small deck off the side. Best part you are in the mountains and at the ocean at the same time. Close to many natural attractions and a few restaurants. Despite the age, kitchen was incredible--huge nicely stocked.No TV but WiFi..

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Sandpiper Beach Resort is located on Washington's wild Pacific Coast, two miles south of the town of Pacific Beach in Grays Harbor County, roughly 3 hours' drive west of Seattle. The resort, founded in 1973, is nestled on a forested hillside directly on Mocrocks beach, a miles-long strip of flat, sandy beach known for its crashing surf, adjacent clay bluffs, and solitude. Offshore, fishing boats and whales ply the pristine waters of the Copalis National Wildlife Refuge.At the Sandpiper, our goal is to provide you with a clean, comfortable, functional and affordable place to get away from it all and enjoy the company of those you're traveling with. Accommodations range from small cabins or studios with room for 2-4 guests, up to large cabins or multi-bedroom units that are perfect for groups as large as 12. Each unit includes a fully-equipped kitchen, fireplace, sweeping ocean view, and a private deck or patio with rocking or lounge chairs for taking in the sunset with a glass of wine in hand.Sandpiper guests pass their time in a range of activities. Long walks on the beach are a must in any season. A winter day might be spent inside by the fire, watching a storm roll in off the Pacific. The wind is often perfect for kite-flying, while a warm day in July or August finds many guests swimming or body-surfing in the cool ocean waves.The Sandpiper infuses kids and dogs with a special energy; both are welcome and encouraged here. Generations of Northwest families have made the Sandpiper a home away from home.Our position by the world's most productive razor clam beds, together with our handy Clam Kitchen, draws visitors during licensed digs throughout the fall, winter and spring. Fishermen don hip-waders and stride into the waves after tasty surfperch. Indoors, you might cook up a delicious meal, read a good book, or tackle a board game or puzzle. At night, a cozy bed and the soft roar of the ocean will allow you to drift off and perhaps even sleep in late.If cabin fever strikes, head over to our Gift Shop to sip an espresso, use the free Wi-Fi, and shop for a memento of your stay or a gift for a loved one. Hop in the car to explore all that coastal Washington has to offer, from horseback riding on the beach at Ocean Shores, to hiking the temperate rain forest or alpine peaks of nearby Olympic National Park. The closest town, Pacific Beach, housed a secret Cold War-era submarine-listening post, which is now a recreation facility open to the public.A bit further north in Moclips, the Museum of the North Beach chronicles the unexpectedly rich history of the area. The beaches of the Quinault Indian Nation hide remote treasures like the much-photographed Tunnel Island; visit tribal headquarters in Taholah for a day pass, or engage a tribal guide for world-class salmon fishing on the Quinault River.The Sandpiper is a true retreat, with no TVs or phones to disturb your stay, and only limited cell phone service in the area. Join us at the edge of the earth to get away from it all! ... more   less
