Our motel called the Mermaid Inn now has been serving guests since 1953 on the Long Beach Peninsula! This boutique motel is just off of Pacific Hwy. Conveniently located 1 mile north of Downtown Long Beach and in the North Beach District of Long Beach. We are easy to find; just look for the 9’ carved Mermaid! She was voted “Ugliest Mermaid on the West Coast” and is featured in the book Weird Washington and on the website Roadside Attractions. We have a wonderful Mexican restaurant next door and the North Beach Tavern a block away. Golfing is a ½ mile away at the Peninsula Golf Course and our amazing Discovery Trail is only an 8-minute walk from our front door.

We have a wonderful patio that includes a community BBQ, a couple of picnic tables and several smaller tables. Our rooms are Clean, Quiet, and Cozy. We have free WiFi throughout our facility. We have pet friendly rooms and rooms where no pets are allowed. There is NO Smoking in ALL of our rooms. We do have a smoking patio for your convenience. Relax on our two person swing while sipping a glass of wine and watching the sunset. We also have a fish/clam cleaning station in our RV Park that our motel guests are welcome to use.

Our rooms are designed to welcome you back from an exciting day at the beach or from visiting nearby towns, one of the many events, or to just curl up with a book and listen to the storm rage outside. Each room include a mini fridge, microwave, drip coffee maker, hair dryer, flat screen TV’s with HBO, etc. we tried to think of all the things you need away from home.

The RV Park has been completely renovated. Our 11 full hook-up sited feature 20/30 amp power, rocked and leveled wide sites for easy set up. Each has a grassy picnic area with picnic table and full hook-ups including cable TV. Our park also features clean bathrooms with free showers, coin-op laundry, fish cleaning station, and a common area with barbeque and picnic tables. 

The Long Beach Peninsula has something for everyone! The city has wheelchairs to loan to those who want to go the beach but aren’t mobile enough to make it. We have the Discovery Trail for bike rides, hikes, runs and more. There are lots of fun activities for kids of all ages here, from the Go-Karts to Mini Golf, Funland, Rides, Kite flying, Marsh’s Museum, and so much more….. Did I mention the 28 miles of uninterrupted beach we have? Some areas you can drive on and some are restricted to no driving. We have Willapa Bay right around the corner with so much to offer, from nature walks to bird watching to harvesting Oysters and raking clams. You are welcome to bring your bicycles for getting around town or you can rent some.

Let us at the Mermaid Inn take care of you on your next adventure to the coast. We are 1st place winners for Best Motel “Best Escapes of the Northwest”.



Owners Bill and Karla purchased the Mermaid Inn & RV Park in 2017 moving to Long Beach Peninsula from Portland, Oregon. The Mermaid Inn & RV Park had been wonderfully renovated by the previous owner, so we just needed to update the linens, add some web presence and take care of our amazing guests. We love meeting our guests and helping them to discover all the wonders of the peninsula. We made it through our first year in the hospitality industry and can’t wait for the new adventures in our future.


Bill was the owner/operator of Chinook Construction in Clackamas, OR for the last 10 years, remodeling Portland one home at a time. He also is an avid sports fisherman, crabber, clammer, the list goes on and on...


Karla is known as the Jill of all trades, many including working up to management. She has worked in the coffee industry, airlines, Office management, Project management in construction, and Property Management. She also in the last year has dived right into community involvement. She is on the Long Beach Merchants Board and with that is also on the board for the Long Beach Visitors Bureau. She has been working with a group to get the Skatepark/Dog Park built also.
