We had a wonderful time here. Specious and clean room a baloney with ocean view. Everything as it is shows in the detail. Kids loved their staying. Stuffs are very helpful and friendly. You just can relax all day watching Oceanview from the room. Pool was clean but small.

We only spent one night, but I'd have been happier with more! Booked this on our drive up from Trinidad, CA, and were delighted to see the ocean view upon entering the room. Truly stunning. The room was comfortable and the hotel is within walking distance of the beach and several small cafes and "old" Newport (but on the other... More

We stayed here in October after finding bugs in a nearby motel reserved online. We were in the first floor on the north end so we had a wrap around window that looked out over the ocean. The room was clean and the pool and spa were excellent also. One of the three pieces of exercise equipment was out of... More

We stayed at the Whaler in November, 2015. The staff were very courteous & professional. A surprise was the rate we were quoted had changed and went down. Close to Yaquina Bay and the town of Newport, Or. Several restaurants were within walking distance. We were on the third floor and had a wonderful view of the ocean. The waves... More

The hotel is situated overlooking the ocean. It is just across from an access point to the beach. The hotel has great rooms with balconies. Get the king room, it has a king bed, small kitchen efficiency and a has fireplace. Stunning sunsets from the balcony as well. Popcorn in the lobby all day and fresh coffee. A small continental...

Stayed with family here three nights in early October. The weather was warm and clear and so time on the miles of beach out front of room was excellent. Easy access to beach via the Veterans Beach brick walkway across the street from hotel. This 3-story hotel has a warm indoor pool, workout room with great equipment, morning juice, coffee,... More

I had not been to the beach in awhile so decided to try to find a place at the last minute in August! I had never looked at this hotel before. I was really surprised to get decent rates, a great ocean view, a private patio, and pet friendly all in the middle of summer at the last minute. I... More

As others had mentioned the drains do not work! Water stays in for a long time and so the sinks are not so clean. The view was great and they are charging for that. The breakfast was mediocre at best.

Fantastic staff. Checked in at 4pm. Free popcorn until 10pm! Woo hoo great for the kids. The room was clean, but super hot. We had a ground floor room and had to sleep with the sliding door open because it was unbearable. The king size bed was also super uncomfortable and lumpy. Those were the only downsides. Everything else was... More
