We stayed 2 nights in their largest suite, since nothing else was avaible. It was really worth the premium. All 8 rooms have amazing views of whale cove with seals , bald eagles, and yes, whales from the balcony. Becides that, the rooms were high standard with a gas fireplace, Temperpedic beds, marble bath with a great shower, and a... More

Warning!!! This hotel will turn you away if you show up with a child under 16! My wife and I were on a road trip with our two boys 17 and 13 on a road trip from San Diego to Seattle and back. We searched for the nicest hotel we could find on the Oregon Coast and came across this... More

Our fourth visit to Whale Cove but for the first time we had exceptional weather. Had dinner and breakfast at Beck's (excellent food/service) with that amazing view -- we saw whales spouting just beyond the cove entrance and eagles flying over. Room was so lovely and comfortable (great mattress!). Staff was very friendly and helpful.

From the moment you walk into the lobby, prepare to be charmed. The general manager, Sarah Jincks, is so personable....just an absolute delight. Depoe Bay looks nice, but we don't want to leave the room. This hotel tops the list of some of the best hotels we've stayed in. Wouldn't change one thing, except I would like to stay longer.

We could have stayed at any number of places along the coast during our trip to the Pacific Northwest. We chose Whale Cove Inn for two reasons: 1) it was recommended to us by friends who stayed here years earlier, and 2) the pictures and reviews on Tripadvisor really had no parallel. So, we made the trip down the coast... More

I was going to title this review " Didn't want to Leave" but someone else beat me to it! We spent 2 nights here as part of a 5 week road trip of the West Coast and I have to say it was the hotel I was most looking forward to due to the Tripadvisor reviews and photos. However, it... More

We were to scheduled to stay at a different hotel in the Depoe Bay area. However, we drove by this hotel on the way into town and decided to go inside and see what the hotel was like- we had heard that it was a wonderful place to stay and had an excellent restaurant. After talking with Marie, she took... More

During our drive down the Oregon coast, we were only able to stay one night, but could have stayed a week if our schedule had allowed. As other reviewers had stated, the views are stunning, and the accommodations are immaculate, modern and so comfortable. We stayed on the top floor, listened to the ocean all night, and in the morning... More

I surprised my wife with a night here for her birthday. We had driven by many times and always thought it looked lovely. When we arrived the manager greated us and let us know she was putting us in her favorite room. It was easy to see why. With gorgeous views from both the living area and the bedroom it... More
