Friendly staff. Everyone at Sekiu is nice and likes to wave to you and chat about fishing. I was working at a hospital in forks and luckily they had a room for me because there was not anything else available for 60 miles.

Great place for people who are going fishing. We were just in the area overnight checking out the beaches and NW coast. It was adequate for our needs and the small store was well stocked. We enjoyed walking the docks, watching the fishing boats and people and especially seeing the sunrise in the morning. Room was clean and nice to have a small kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, sink, kitchen table/chairs. Would have been nice to have a TV in the bedroom area instead of the kitchen but it's a place to be outdoors and enjoy the scenery!

The room was very clean. Shower was very small, probably 3.5 ft x 3.5 ft. The room had a stove, microwave and fridge. This place is NOT a resort and should not be called one! It is a motel!!! I only stayed for one night and I was pleased with the cleanliness of the room.
