From our arrival we were favourably impressed. Quick check in with all the details we needed. 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

comfortable room, no complaints, nice balcony overlooking Nye Beach (but it was fogged in most of our time there). Crashing ocean waves blocked out any noise, which we liked, but might be too much for others. free popcorn in lobby!

The Whaler has balcony rooms with awesome views of the ocean and easy access to the beach. Continental breakfast was sufficient and staff was quiet and unobtrusive. We will definitely stay here again and again. Room prices were very good. Our room was an end room on the third floor so we had a view of the lighthouse also. If... More

We really liked our one-night stay here mainly b/o the ocean view from our 2nd floor. The location was great but most of the price paid was for the view. Otherwise this is another national budget chain. Except that there is a street between the hotel and the beach , this is as close as you can get to the... More

Unit 114 was plain, functional, clean and comfortable. Great beds for a 2 family get together. 3 bedrooms, 2 bath, kitchen, living room with very comfy furniture. The exterior is plain and weather worn being right on the beach. Inside is warm, quiet and cozy. Our grand kids had a great time. Comes with access to hotel pool and continental... More

This is the second time we have stayed at The Whaler. The hotel sits right across the street from the Pacific Ocean. The rooms are nice but a little tired; it wouldn't take a lot to update them. The bathroom could use updating as well but it wasn't terrible, just needs newer looking accents and paint. The room was very... More

Very nice place! Location was perfect. Close to restaurants and shopping, and literally right across the street from the beach. We would open the sliding glass door to the private balcony and be lulled to sleep to the sounds of the ocean. Room was clean and staff was friendly and helpful. Price was one of the most affordable beach accommodations... More
