My husband and I stay at the Whaler every time we visit Newport for the weekend, which is probably every other year. We have a chocolate lab who loves the cost and this is one of the more dog friendly hotels, so that is why we choose it. It might not be the most luxurious motel in Newport, but it is reasonably priced, clean, and comfortable. The staff here is amazing: Super friendly and helpful. There is a little workout room, pool, and hot tub that we always take advantage of. We love the continental breakfast. They have trays so you can take it up to your room. Which I love, because my husband can never get up early enough for the breakfast, so I like bringing something up for him to have when he wakes up. The rest of the day they have free popcorn! Also, each room has a small balcony overlooking the ocean, and there is a little trail down to Nye beach from the hotel. Very nice.
It was very quiet and relaxing.
