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

everyone was pleasant and cooperated when I ask for places to go and things to see. The room was comfortable and clean. The ocean was and beach was right across the road for easy access. I have referred my friends to The Whaler and none have ben disappointed.

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

We stayed in "Junior Queen Suite" this visit and it was just as nice as our previous stay sans the gas fireplace and wet bar. Didn't really miss either one. The 3rd floor is the place to stay if available and you are comfortable with stairs. We have stayed in two other hotels just to the south of the Whaler... More

After along day of driving we were thrilled to discover Newport and The Whaler Motel. A great area and also very helpful staff at Reception. Rooms were clean and had a great view and breakfast was simple but definitely enough. Enjoyed our stay and it was not long enough. A quaint little beachside town as well.

You can't beat this view of the ocean from all rooms in The Whaler, and it is undoubtedly a bargain. Also, we've loved it in the past, but this time the room was not clean. It was puzzling as it had been a great motel last year. This time, we had previous guests' coffee in the in-room coffee pot, a... More
