Beautiful, comfortable and quiet
I love this motel!!! When you walk into the room all you smell is the wonderful aroma of cedar.
It is spacious and has a veiw of the Pacific you can see and hear. The log burning fireplace is warm and cozy.
The beach is a very short walk and the sound of the ocean from the room is so relaxing.
This is our 3rd visit and will stay again any time we are in Gold Beach.
By the way, there are no phones in the rooms, which is a nice break. You can use your cell phone. Messages can also be left at the main desk.
Now that they take dogs
A few years ago I had a friend come to visit from Ohio and I planned to take him to the coast. I traveled from Alaska to meet him here. I reserved a room ahead of time and when we arrived at the inn I was shocked to find out they would not allow my dog to be anywhere but in the car. I have heard from other Hotels that the Inn now takes dogs so I might try it again. I stayed in a cabin and it was rustic.
My wife and I have stayed at Irland's over 30 times in the last 20 years and the staff has always been curtious and helpful. We obviously love the place and the people.
Simply The Best
If I could live at Irelands Rustic Lodge year round I would. What a place to stay. It's so cozy and clean. I've stayed there over the past 15 years and enjoyed every minute. The staff, views of the ocean, trail to the beach, is by far the beat place I've stayed on the West Coast. The rates are very reasonable, especially in the Winter.
Many happy returns
My husband and I have stayed at the Irelands many times over the past 20 years. The staff is fantastic, the rooms are just beautiful and clean and they will always find some way to make everyone happy. We've always booked the same adjoining rooms for our kids and they've gone so far as to bring us microwaves during storms. The stone fireplaces are beautiful and we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Gold Beach. It's like our home away from home on our annual trips.
Loved It ... Will Return
Stayed 3 nights in the lodge during 3rd week of May 2004. Room was indeed rustic, but had all the basics, including a nice fireplace and a desk with a spectacular ocean view.
The so-called "older, heavyset woman" mentioned in an earlier review was nothing if not absolutely friendly and charming. When I worried about a computer connection she offered to let me hook up to the office phone. (There are no phones in the rooms ... part of the charm.)
We will return in a heartbeat!
It's Very Comfortable BUT...
My fiance and I recently stayed at Ireland's Rustic Lodges and found the first impression not good. There is an older overweight woman who works in the office who is awful. We arrived 15 min early for check in and she told us snarrly "Check-in is 1 oclock so the room probably isnt ready but you can go check" and hands me a key. She says hardly nothing to you and makes you feel like you are bothering her. I would have asked for directions to a nice restaraunt but feared I would be told to go away. NOT A NICE PERSON. However the rooms are cozy and give you a warm feeling, If you get a view they are great. I probably would go back if I could skip check in somehow. GOOD LUCK
Cute, quiet, and cozy cabins
I have stayed here about 10 times in the last 13 years and I have loved it every time. The cabins are all unigue most of them with old rock fireplaces. They are surrounded by beautiful gardens. The beach is a little walk down where you find colorful pebbles and shells of all shapes and sizes. If you are down to earth and don't expect alot of fancy and want some quiet time alone with your honey you will like it too. Emily from Southern Oregon
This will be our 3rd year staying at Ireland's. We would not stay anywhere else!!! Everyone is so nice and everything is clean. We especially love the location to the ocean and the Rogue River!!
Big, comfortable rooms
I really enjoyed staying at Ireland Rustic Lodge.
My friend and I were biking down the coast. It was a cold,
foggy, rainy day when we finally checked in to the lodge. The room was big and spacious. It had a fireplace that kept us toasty all night. Our room also had a beautiful view and deck that looked out onto the beach/ocean. The room was clean and the furniture was a little old but kept in good condition.

On our beautiful drive down Highway 101, we stopped at the Oregon Dunes National Recreational Area (say that three times fast). We rented a 4-seater Dunebuggy and explored the dunes. After building up our confidence on some of the smaller dunes, we took to the big guys. We played on 80 foot high dunes. This was a fun and one-of-a-kind experience. We were completely covered in sand and had a blast. We then jumped back in the RV and headed south to meet up with ...
... doing. Shane has never played. But we figured it couldn't hurt to use our free money and try our luck just for fun. So, Shane put his card in and started playing, just pushing the buttons, no idea what he was doing, and he ended up winning $80.00!!!! Hahhaha! He cashed out and took his ticket up and got his cash. Most people would have played on with some or all of the winnings I guess, but no way were we doing that. SHow me the money! I tried mine ...
... retired in 1977 and returned to Gold Beach. In 1985 she sank in the Rogue River and has remained there ever since as a derelict vessel on the shoreline. Surprising how little she was for all she did.
In Bandon we had some great chowder then hit the Cranberry Sweets & More store that had more samples than I had ever seen....you could fill up just on samples. The dock here had some great Myrtlewood carvings.
After a rough nights sleep (for me and several other campers) due to an impromptu reggae party with a rather loud portable sound system (yay mini rig) Ben awakes to a stinking hangover. We haven't been drinking since my cousins wedding two months ago so it's a shock - poor Ben but I am on hand with food and (a little) sympathy and we manage to get away without too much bother. I only had a couple of drinks and felt ok but you can still notice the effect and ...

62,132 on the odometer means we have traveled 5,487 miles. Over these miles, we have changed the engine once, the oil twice, greased the chassis 4 times, tightened the front wheel bearings, have had zero flats but ran out of gas once, met lots of great people and Jean and I are having the time of our lives.
