Absolutely excellent place to stay! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. My family and I stayed in the Agatha Christie room which was a lot of fun. While perusing the hotel itself it was incredible to see all the different rooms. I would have loved to stay in the Jules Verne room or the Mark Twain room. The breakfast... More

Once again, my husband and I had a great stay at the Sylvia Beach Hotel in Newport, Oregon. The hotel has been around for 27 years, and we've gone there for 25 of them. A fine getaway from the everyday world: no TV, wifi, or phones. The hotel does, however, have rooms named for and decorated in the style of... More

It wasn't hard to find the Herman Melville room. It had a brass knocker of a whale on the door. Just a bit of whimsy for this four-story old hotel on the doorstep of the Pacific. We enjoyed our stay immensely. Didn't miss the TV or Internet. Took long walks on historic Nye Beach instead. A handful of restaurants and... More

My mom and I visited the Sylvia Beach Hotel because we both love books and were attracted to the idea of a literary-themed bed and breakfast. We were not at all disappointed! We made reservations about four months in advance, so I can't speak for the spur-of-the-moment traveller, but I am so glad we were able to stay for four... More

I must say that when my biographer boyfriend surprised me with a room at this small ocean view hotel, the "no cellphones, no wifi, no TV" policy gave me pause. But hey, it's only one day without Turner Classics and Law and Order reruns, right? We stayed in the delightful top-priced Colette suite. Small balcony, fireplace, daybed.. Lots of cat... More

We were in the Gertrude Stein room. It is very cozy with a full size bed. We have a king size at home so I was a bit worried but we slept very well. The highlight of the hotel is definitely the library. It has an excellent view of the beach where you can sit on any number of comfortable... More

We used to live in Oregon, and have previously stayed at this wonderfully themed "writers hotel." the décor in the rooms is marvelous. Our recent stay was good, but the hotel is showing signs of aging, with fan switches that don't work, doors that do not lock properly. They really need a regular handyman (the staff confirmed this to me).... More

Looked great on line. We're not overly discriminating when it comes to accommodation, but unless you're a hobo or used to sleeping in a halfway house, stay away from the Sylvia Beach. Arrived with our three children in early July, and the first thing that we noticed when parking outside were the cracked and filthy windows - more reminiscent of... More

Fell in love with it online and was prepared to be delighted! Lobby was disorganized with boxes of produced stacked up and things were messy . Desk staff was not professional. Balcony off lobby was not accessible as it brings a strong breeze into the gift shop and blows away the merchandise. Dinner took 2 hours and 45 min.

I'm glad to have stayed at this hotel for one night. We stayed at the Shakespeare Room which is on the second floor (no lift) and one has to stand really close to the window to see the ocean. The whole feel of the hotel is that of somebody's book loving spinster aunt... Lots of thrift store chatskis associated with... More
