Ocean Cove Inn

Frequently Asked Questions

Is your motel located right on the ocean?
No. We are situated on a gentle slope just above Yachats Bay and the Pacific. The main road through Yachats Village runs along the bay in front of our motel.

Do all of your rooms have views of the ocean?
Yes, but not all of our eight rooms have the same view. The four rooms in our Upper Building have panoramic views of the hills, the bay, and the ocean. The four rooms in our Lower Building have territorial views, with the hills on the left and the ocean on the right.

Which room has the best view?
It depends on what you want to see! The Upper Building rooms have a panoramic view. The Lower Building rooms, which are closer to the bay and the ocean, are better for whale watching.

Can I walk to the beach?
Yes. We are situated almost at the mouth of Yachats Bay. The beach is a 5-10 minute walk from our motel, depending on the tide and the beach access point that you choose.

Can I walk to restaurants and shops?
Yes. Several excellent restaurants are located less than a block away from us, and additional restaurants and a variety of shops are within a short walk.

Are you a motel or a bed-and-breakfast?
The Ocean Cove Inn is a boutique motel, not a bed-and-breakfast. Although breakfast is not included in our room rate, each of our guest rooms has a coffee maker, along with complimentary coffee and granola bars. (Some travel and trip review websites list us as a B&B because we do not meet their criteria for a hotel or motel. We apologize for any confusion.)

What is the earliest time we can check in?
The earliest check-in time is 4 p.m. If you arrive earlier than 4 p.m., we will be happy to check you in if your room is ready. However, we cannot guarantee early check-ins.

How late can we check in?
We ask that you check in no later than 6 p.m. If you will be arriving later than 6 p.m., please let us know in advance.

How late can we check out?
The latest check-out time is 11 a.m.

I have trouble walking. Can I get to a room without using stairs?
Yes. All four guest rooms in our Lower Building are at ground level with no stairs.

Do you accept pets?
Yes. All of our rooms are pet friendly.

Do you allow smoking?
No. In compliance with Oregon State law and Ocean Cove Inn policy, we do not allow smoking anywhere on our premises.

Are you a "green" motel?
While we are not certified as a "green" motel, we have implemented a variety of green-oriented business practices. For example, we provide ceramic coffee cups, not paper cups, in our guest rooms. We make every effort to recycle paper, plastic, and glass and to use environmentally friendly and fragrance-free cleaning products. Also, guests who stay more than one night with us may request to not have their towels and bed linen changed daily.
