Very comfortable in well appointed apartment. Nice touches added with fresh flowers and cinnamon rolls for breakfast.

If you enjoy vintage buildings this is for you. It had everything I needed and then some.

Quaint apartment

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is cute and the manager easy to communicate with. We used it as a base to explore from. Noisy neighbors kind of put a damper on being able to completely enjoy our stay.

Cosy place in Coos Bay

  • 4 of 5

We had an enjoyable two night stay at a place that met our needs. It is part of six unit apartment complex, and we were on the ground floor with a sunny dinning room. Its not a fancy place, but it was very clean and comfortable in an established quiet neighborhood. We did not do any cooking, but it was set up very well if you wanted that. It is easy walking distance from downtown and there are plenty of places to eat. We had passed thru Coos Bay many times but had not spent the night. We were happy we stayed there and we think others would also.

It was well equipped in the Kitchen. Barbara was a very pleasant mgr.

Bed could have been firmer for us older folks.

Location is okay.
