Excellent time, very quiet and relaxing just what we needed. Staff was extremely helpful 5 stars. We got the Lighthouse room with excellent views of the ocean and Yaquina Head Lighthouse. Not far from Newport which on this trip discovered Nye Beach area and of course we had to go to our favorite Historic Bayfront. Every room is themed so... More

My husband and I were excited to stay at Moolack Shores, and we were not disappointed! We stayed in the light house themed room. What a beautiful room, with a view of a light house and of course the beautiful pacific!!! The room was very cozy and decorated with light house decor from puzzle pictures, to actual pictures, and there... More

We stayed last summer (late review, I know...) in the Hawaiian suite. The balcony overlooking the ocean was beautiful. Having windows on both walls gave the unit a very open feel. It was just far enough from town to be quiet yet still convenient. I will stay again next time I am on the Oregon coast.

My wife and I returned to Moolack Shores after being away nearly 40 years. This was one of the first hotels we stayed at when we moved to the Pacific Northwest. We fondly remembered the visit. We were not disappointed upon our return. Each of the rooms has a unique theme. We stayed in the Hunting Lodge room. It was... More

All of the rooms are decorated on a theme and the theme includes far more than just decor. Books, paraphernalia, as well as signs, plaques, carvings, etc are in each room to add an in depth experience. Our family stayed in the Nautical Room and our 21 year old son found a book on The Dreadnaughts that he couldn't put... More

This was our first stay at Moolack Shores, but we will definitely be back! We spent our honeymoon here in the Camelot Room. The view is fantastic and the six miles of beach were mostly vacant (due to off season) and was like having our own private beach. The room was quaint and perfect for our needs. Loved the idea...

After leaving Portland we had no reservations. Rainy, fog...Thought we'd look for something in Newport. I just wanted to see, hear the ocean (we live in Albuquerque). When we spotted moolack shores she said that had popped up as good value. I walked the beach in the rain. she did some work w/wifi. Loved the ocean view!!!

This is our 28th year visiting Moolack Shores and we stayed in our favorite Room (#7 - Oregon Room). This little old motel is a wonderful place with very nice people who manage the place. Frank works very hard to keep the place going. I noticed that one person complained about Yvette, Frank's wife. Sure she comes across a little... More

We had the best stay here. The room was really nice and comfortable, quiet and cozy. We went there to get away and enjoy a weekend without kids. A much needed mommy and daddy time. Our room that we stayed in was a Nautical/ cabin of ship. It really worked especially the port hole that actually worked. The freshness of... More

We were pleasantly surprised... we stayed in the antique room. Our private deck was feet away from the private beach. The staff was great...we will be coming back! The price was affordable. Now I'm just trying to get my 200 characters in.
