My wife and I have been going to Newport for years - usually in the summer but lately in the Fall and now in the Spring. We have stayed in several other properties including the #1 rated Inn at Nye Beach, but The Whaler has consistently given us the best value. On a recent trip, we showed up in Newport... More

What a wonderful weekend we 5 ladies had on April 12 & 13, 2014. We had rented the 4 bedroom beach houses on the ocean side. The weather couldn't have been any better. It was in the 70's and the view from the house was breath taking. It was clean and up to our standards. I went up to the... More

Excellent location with awesome Oceanview! Friendliest staff and cleanest rooms. Indoor pool and coffee/popcorn in lobby are a plus. Walking distance to many fine restaurants and shops in the Nye beach area.

My husband and I live out of state and we were dying to get back to the beautiful beaches of the Oregon Coast. I found the Whaler Motel online and knew we would be stopping in Newport for a few days on our trip. The Whaler turned out to be our favorite place during our whole visit to the coast.... More

Having been a resident of Newport for my entire life there have been several occasions when we had an overflow of friends and family. For years we sent them to The Whaler. Never have any of them been disappointed! Just a walk across the street to the great Pacific Ocean....beautiful beaches in sun or storm! Nice views from the pet... More

Not impressed at all. Rooms are ok and just that. OK. You are a crossed the road from the main beach entrance so it is non stop traffic going by until late at night. The rooms are hot even when it is 30 degrees outside. You can not put your feet up on the balcony and have a cigar or... More

We ultimately chose this motel for allowing pets (we have 3 dogs) but also for it's prime unobstructed views of the ocean - which enabled me to take take beautiful sunset pictures & video. The rooms are dated but that's about the only complaint as it is in a very quiet area and close (2 minutes) to the boardwalk that... More

Room was nice and so was view. In the morning and at noon it poured rain into my bathroom through the light fixture when the people upstairs used the shower. They better fix it fast. I liked that the balcony's were private. Bed was okay, but pillows were too small and not much support. Don't bother trying to get oatmeal... More

Highly recommend the Whaler, especially the newer rooms at the north end of the complex. Ocean views at it's best and close to the beach. Price is great for the winter special tops other offers nearby. The staff is over-the-top friendly and accommodating. We looked at different rooms and the willingly facilitated our decision making to get what we desired.... More
