We recently returned from a drive of the Oregon coast. Our first stop, the Grey Whale Inn, was a typically reviewed TA place. Spot On correct!!! A wonderful Inn , charming very very clean and wonderful host who went well out of her way to make sure our special requests, allergy issues, would be addressed. It's not fancy but completely...

Stayed here overnight while driving up the coast. Walked on the beach before sunrise and took the most awesome photos. One of my favorite memories of the trip - watching The Goonies with my adult children while staying at Cannon Beach. Owner was friendly, warm, helpful and our room was perfect.

Wonderful people, clean rooms, 200 yards from the beach. Great value! We love to wake up in the morning, go for a walk on the beach to get coffee downtown, and take our time walking back after shopping for a bottle of wine. Perfect if you are "low maintenance" and do not need hi-tech (or high price) to stay.

The Grey Whale Inn was wonderful and quaint. You can see the ocean and hear it from the rooms. If you like cozy little nooks that are not touristy this is for you. The even left a basket of breakfast for us - German Pancakes, Orange Juice, and fruit. It was wonderful. Highly recommend, price varies but it's worth. Also... More
