From the moment we walked into our room, we never wanted to leave. The rooms (suites, actually) are huge, consisting of a living room, bedroom, enormous bathroom and large balcony (with a jacuzzi!). The view from all of the rooms is probably the most beautiful view in the whole state of Oregon. The food at the restaurant where we ate... More

The suite was clean and beautifully decorated. Awesome view of the cove and the ocean. Grey whales playing just off shore, easily seen from the hot tub on the deck. The staff are warm and welcoming. They go out of their way to make sure your happy. Restaurant Beck has some fabulous food!

I can only reinforce what the other reviewers have said; i.e. that this is an absolutely fabulous place to stay. The 4 of us (2 couples in 2 rooms) stayed 3 nights and wished for more. The beds were wonderful, views that were so peaceful and beautiful, quiet and utterly relaxing. In my opinion, this compares to any 5 star... More

My wife and I stayed one night in this hotel . The only thing I would have changed would have been to stay longer. carol at the front desk was very pleasant to deal with and it was obvious she loves her job. My wife actually saw a whale from our 3rd floor room. I was not a big fan... More

The Whale Cove Inn is a treasure... set on a hill above a magical hidden cove on the Central Coast of Oregon in Depoe Bay, it is an oasis of luxury. All the rooms are plushly appointed suites, with huge balconies overlooking the cove, and the balconies have hot tubs on them! Beds are beyond comfortable, towels are plush and... More

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
