2 families, 2 babies, 2 dogs and a whole lotta sand. My husband and I met our super amazing friends here for a weekend. They were traveling cross country from NY and we met up in Oregon before they headed back. This location is absolutely amazing. Yes the rooms are dated, but they were clean, well stocked and the front... More

Built in the 1930's as a private residence and renovated over the years, The Overlook Motel is a throwback to an earlier era, one that is quickly vanishing (sadly) on the Oregon Coast as cold cookie-cutter corporate monstrosities take over the oceanfront properties. Perched on a bluff with some of the most spectacular views of the coast, generations of beach-goers... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at this motel with my husband. We are frequent weekend visitors to Lincoln City but decided to try a new place. My one requirement for any place we stay on the Oregon Coast is a view (because we all know sometimes it's too stormy and gross to actually be on the beach, but... More

The Overlook has some of the best views in Lincoln City. The rooms are clean and nicely stocked with books and activities for those rainier days! The beds are comfortable and the management is friendly and helpful. The walk to the rooms outside is a bit steep and narrow; but no problem for most people. We really enjoyed our stay.

We loved it! You just cannot get a better VIEW. You just cannot get a more cozy room at the Ocean. You just cannot get a better theme room at the Ocean. You just cannot.... well you get the drift. The Goods: Comfortable and roomy. Scandinavian theme - Norway, I believe. Sink deeply into the couches, beds, chairs, etc. Watch... More

We spent one night in unit #2. It was very nice and furnished in old fashioned way. The room was very big however it felt little cluttered. It would be much nicer if some of the furniture was just gone as it would feel much more roomy and comfortable. This room has a really big balcony with a table and... More

A friend recommend Overlook Motel to me when my daughter and I went to the Portland area for spring break. All rooms overlook the ocean with quick access to the beach. We loved this place. Very friendly, helpful staff that live on the premise. Will stay there again the next time we are in the area.

I like this place so much I almost don't want to review it for fear it will get popular and I won't be able to get in again so easily! GREAT place. Check in was friendly, and room was fantastic! Okay, it was old and "homey", not shiny and polished, but COME ON! You are at the beach. It was... More

If you find yourself in Lincoln City Oregon or are planning a trip there, try the Overlook, especially Unit 6. This is a special place - a nod to the past sitting on a cliff way above the Glorious Pacific Ocean. The bank of windows on the West side of the unit are an invitation to spend all of your... More
