My wife and I found this location to be a very good value for the money. Nice room, very peaceful. Recommend third floor rooms for the gorgeous view. Well located in Newport and staff is amazing. Even the bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in outside of home!

There is an awesome park that's a two minute walk from the hotel with a huge slide, the view is stellar, the breakfast is functional, the location to downtown Nye Beach is very nice, and the price was right (search for their specials), the only negative was that the pool was a bit colder than is generally comfortable to most....

I would like to give The Whaler four stars because of the comfy bed, stellar view and location, fridge in room, incredible pool and excellent staff, but there are too many minuses. The room has a small table and two chairs but no reading chair. The bathroom sink area was tiny and included the coffee maker. The coffee was terrible... More

We were headed for Cannon Beach, but it was getting late, drove off 101 towards the ocean. Didn't know there was a whole district called Nye Beach....funky old street or two. Found The Whaler, dog friendly, breakfast also....light eats with bagels, coffee, cereals ....it was sufficient and good. Tea/juices, milk etc. top floor room, double queen beds, very clean, nicely... More

My wife and I stayed here when we visited our daughter and her husband, who live in Portland. They also stayed at this hotel the night we all spent in Newport. The room was rather minimalist in terms of décor- just a few pictures, a small table with two chairs. The desk and dresser were both quite small- not a... More

Great location within walking distance to historic downtown Nye Beach town and overlooking the spectacular Nye Beach on the Oregon coast. The hotel itself is somewhat dated but nonetheless the rooms are a good size with a fridge, sink, microwave, dishes and a flat screen tv. All rooms overlook the ocean and all have a private balcony accessible through sliding... More

The room is a little dated but immaculately clean.linens and towels good quality, lots of hot water and a good shower head. All the basics are there plus the view. All good. Hard to beat sitting in the sun with a cold one watching... More

The Whaler Inn is our favorite motel on the entire Oregon coast. We stay there every time we stay in Newport. It is medium size and everything is close together. Three stories and every room has an ocean view. We sat on the deck this week and watched pods of Gray Whales feeding just off shore. The indoor pool and... More

I was somewhat nervous about making reservations at the Whaler due to some reviews on TA, but my husband and I checked in around 4 p.m. on a Tuesday and were given a 2nd floor room. When we checked into our room I couldn't believe how wonderful it was, especially for the price. Our room had been completely refurbished at... More
