We were told about this place by a friend who is moving to Brookings. She was spot on. It is actually an rv resort that has park model rv's for rent. Each one is owned separately and the Resort just manages them. We rented I-9. It was only ok, but the view of the ocean was amazing. The one we... More

My husband and I have wanted to stay at Whaleshead for years and this year, we finally did it. Cabin T10 was pristine clean, comfortable, had a nice covered deck with a good view of Whaleshead Beach. The hot tub was hot and delightful after hiking and beach-combing all day. Everything worked. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, coffeemaker,... More

We stayed one night here. We had made Reservations from what was left (we had booked only a week in advance) and just looked at the choices available from the website. The place we booked was HORRIBLE. The carpets were in dire need of cleaning, the bed coverings had a "unclean" feel to them, and the furnace sounded like a... More

We have stayed here over fifty times as it is very close to our daughters house. Each cabin is different and creates a unique experience. They are decorated with lots of brachytherapy decorations and mostly fake plants. Many have lovely ocean views and hot tubs. This is not a true hotel experience with a high service level. They are more... More

My family has been coming to Brookings every summer for several years to beat the Medford heat. Last week when it hit 110 degrees I knew it was time to go!!!! We got lucky and snagged a spot at Whaleshead and had a great time roasting weenies, and smores etc.... I also got to sleep a bunch and drink some... More

We stayed in S2 at the top of the resort. The view was amazing and it felt very private. The cabin was clean but we had small children who climb behind things and throw toys under things so we noticed some hard to see areas that had been neglected from cleaning. The sheets and towels were fresh. Anytime we had... More

I was really disappointed in our stay. We decided to stay there, our first visit, for a birthday celebration. Arriving at U12 that we rented there was exterior clean up that should have been done. The cabin was okay except that it was not clean. The hot tub was not hot. After waiting for 1 1/2 hours after on the... More

The cabins are privately owned and furnished so the recommendation is to choose wisely. We stopped by here while travelling south and checked out 3 available cabins. The layout was similar but quality and comfort did vary. The site itself is managed and appeared clean, tidy and well laid out. Areas between and surrounding cabin was well tended. Onsite restaurant... More

What a great place to stay! My boyfriend took me here for a romantic getaway and I couldn't have asked for more! Great Views, and the hot tub is a must! Our cabin was great! Clean T10 was wonderful. Peaceful, quiet and clean. Looking forward to our next trip.

Wow, I am just blown away!!!! I tried to make reservations at Whaleshead RV Resort and the gal on the phone told me that my 1999 class A motorhome was too old and I could not stay there. My motorhome looks very nice and is up to date. I cannot believe they will not let people stay with motorhomes older... More

This is not discrimination of older motorhomes. It is a park policy to not accept motorhomes or trailers beyond a certain age, unless approved by management. A policy that is practiced in parks throughout the country. This reviewer was ask to send pictures of the motorhome so management could review and make a determination on the acceptability of the home.... More
