When your tired of all the chain motels and want something small and cozy. Moolack Shores Motel is on the beach with nice views and decks for sitting out. Each room is themed and lends to the charm of this cozy little motel. No breakfast served here, but town isn't too far away. The owners were nice and showed me... More

We returned to Moolack Shores, and the Lighthouse Room specifically, after our first visit three years ago. The location is amazing, overlooking the beach, the room itself is charming, and the service is wonderful. It was a nice break, after being on holiday for a week, to have a kitchen to make a meal in. It's close to Newport, the... More

Good location just outside Newport, on the cliff right above the beach. Request a room with an ocean view. Pick up your breakfast before you arrive. Then you can sit on your veranda and have your breakfast, looking over the ocean. What a fab way to start the day!

Every room in this motel looks different, but each one has a spectacular view to the Ocean, a fire place and a cozy interior. It is a very unique and personal place, and the very friendly and helpful host makes it easy to feel like at home (not only because of her homemade cookies).

My husband and I lucked into a cancellation at Moolack. We were celebrating our first wedding anniversary. We took a 4 mile walk on the beach, watched the sun set on the horizon, drank wine while sitting in the sliding rockers. I can't imagine a better view of the ocean anywhere. The mini Suite appointed Hawaiian room was terrific. We... More

Saw this place on a drive down the Oregon coast thought I would keep them in mind. Wife and I stayed a few months later. Individually themed rooms make it a little more interesting. We had an outstanding view plus separate decks. Good price. Small and cozier than the big inns. Definitely consider reservations early as they fill quickly.

Wish we would have stayed longer at this place! The view was incredible and the beach so beautiful to walk. Very close to some awesome coastal areas...devil's punchbowl, cape foulweather, Yaquina Head. Close to Newport but away from things. Room was comfortable and clean. We always prefer to patronize local family owned businesses.

We booked this hotel based on reviews of it being quirky, clean and a great location. Quirky it is and we found the rooms fun with there cute decorating themes. The view cannot be beat - right on the beach with the sound if waves - gorgeous. The tub, toilet, sink and bed were clean and bed very comfortable (antique... More

What I want to say are all sorts of things that would convince you not to stay here...because I do not want it to be "found". Truth be told, it is a wonderful, funky, reasonable motel right on the pacific ocean. I am not going to expound on how great I think it is. I like funky, down to earth... More

This was a perfect weekend stay. They room was great, very uniquely decorated. Clean, comfortable. Just right. The views from our room were spectacular. The service was good...not problems at all. This is an older beachfront motel, but it is very well maintained. I would highly recommend this place.
