“Very nice time in Newport Oregon!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Have stayed in Newport 8-9 times in the last few years, always at the same place. Decided to add another day to our stay and thought to try the Hallmark which is right down the street. Excellent choice it was too! Nice modern room, very comfy bed-more so then the other place. Friendly, helpful and caring staff and they even have a place outside of the registration door to wash and clean your car windows :)

The meals at Georgies were also very good and again, very helpful and friendly staff with of course a superb view of the ocean. As mentioned by other reviewers there are common areas for gatherings, two tv's for those fanatics of NCIS and DWTS, and a neat fireplace.

All in all a very relaxing great time and we both wish we had gone there first and stayed the entire 4 days instead of just the one. I do know this is where we will be staying for now on!

Good job Hallmark :)

Room Tip: There really aren't any bad rooms as they all are on the ocean sid, wonderful to hear the surf...

I truly could not have asked for more with my recent stay at the Hallmark Resort! My partner and I were traveling to the coast to celebrate our anniversary, and reserved a Limited Edition King Spa Suite on the top floor a couple months in advance. Upon arrival we were checked in quickly by the incredibly friendly staff, and were given our keys (the keycard holder actually has a pull out map of the property attached, which the front desk employee wrote down all the important details we could possible need as well!).

When we entered the room my jaw dropped. The room itself was beautifully furnished, with two large LCD TVs, a fireplace, a kitchenette area complete with dishware and utensils, a cozy sitting area with fireplace, beautiful 2 person jetted tub in the main room, large comfy king bed covered with pillows, and an absolutely GORGEOUS view of the ocean. Not only was I impressed with the quality of the room itself, but also by the fact that the hotel offers 'Romance Packages' that my partner had apparently requested for me. On the table by the balcony there was an adorable gift basket with a stuffed bear, delicious chocolates, wonderful scented candle, scented bath liquid for the jetted tub, as well as a coupon for their Movie Buffet (unlimited movie rentals from their gift shop for your entire stay) wrapped up in a cute bucket with red and white hearts all over it, and a bottle of Sparkling Cider (my favorite) chilling on ice with special Hallmark Inn champagne flutes to take home!

We took advantage of the movie buffet coupon right away our first night. The movie buffet was surprisingly good with a good selection of newer titles, as well as some amazing older movies. (We went with The Hobbit, The Avengers, and The Princess Bride to give you an idea of selection). It was great to be able to relax in the jetted tub with the candle lit, sipping some sparkling cider, and watching some of our favorite movies. When we woke up the next morning we took advantage of the room service offered from Georgie's Beachside Grill, and were thrilled with both the promptness of the food as well as the quality and price. We tried numerous dishes during our stay, and while each dish was amazing, we can not say enough good things about the Country and Coastal Stuffers on their breakfast menu specifically!

During the second night of our stay my partner and I went out to dinner at Saffron Salmon down by the bay front (although afterwards we wished we would have just ordered from Georgie's again), and then went for a nice walk on the beach. The front desk provides beach blankets and flashlights to any guests, which we took advantage of. As we were cuddled up on the beach enjoying the view of the sunset, my boyfriend took that opportunity to propose!! (I said yes) When we came back to the hotel room I was surprised to find a bouquet of dozen long stemmed roses and rose petals scattered around the jetted tub. (Another extra the hotel staff offers).

I truly can not give enough praise for every aspect of my stay at the Hallmark Resort, and am so thankful for all the extra effort that they put into helping my now fiancé set up the perfect proposal. We have already decided that we will be making our stay at Hallmark an annual tradition to celebrate, and we can't wait until next May comes around! (Assuming we can even wait that long to come back!)

Thank you to all Hallmark and Georgie's staff for helping make me the happiest woman on earth! <3

Room Tip: The limited edition spa rooms (especially on the top floor) are AMAZING!

Ocean view with beach access, gas fireplace, jacuzzi for two, comfortable king size bed and great new furniture. Two flat screen TV's and kitchenette with a microwave, refrigerator,sink and dishwasher. PERFECT !!!!! Didn't hurt that it was over 80 the first weekend in May.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are worth the price difference.

I stayed for business and was then joined by my partner for vacation. The hotel is under a major renovation and is about 70% complete. The common areas have all been completed and are stunning. Most of the rooms have also been renovated and are equally as stunning. The hotel is on the beach and has two direct access points to the beach. There is a pet area (yes, its pet friendly), horseshoe pits, picnic areas, and playground for the kids. There is a pool, sauna, hot tub and excercise room, all of which were great. Each room has a balcony facing the ocean and the sunsets are amazing. Our room had a fireplace, hot tub, king bed, buffet area with fridge, microwave, plates and utensils. The hotel is also conveniently located within a short drive (or a longer walk) to the historic bayfront and Nye Beach. We would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone staying in the Newport area.

We had the opportunity to stay at the Hallmark Resort for business. When we pulled up I thought "oh no, construction". They are remodeling the entire hotel.
We NEVER hear a peep! The view out our window was spectacular! The room was comfy and we had our own fireplace.
The staff was friendly right down to the construction crew.
This is a MUST stay when in Newport.
Oh yeah, business rooms were nice too.

My family and I traveled to Newport, OR at the end of April for a few days and stayed at the Hallmark Resort. The rooms all feature an ocean view and has beach access to some lovely tide pools when the tide is low.

We arrived earlier than expected and I called the hotel to see if we could get in early -- our room was not ready yet BUT they offered to call us when it was since we were traveling with two small children who were tired from the drive. 30 mins later, we received a call and checked in an hour early. The rooms were very clean and had a great view of the ocean! Our room featured a refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher and sink. They even brought us a portable crib when we discovered our wasn't working. The rooms were updated (we've stayed at other place in Newport that looked straight out of the 70s).

The hotel offers a pool and you can also purchase tickets for the Oregon Coast Aquarium at the front desk.

We're already looking forward to coming back!

Stayed April 13th and 14th. Got a great rate of $139.00 plus taxes. We stayed top Floor Deluxe
Queen Beds. Pool was great, our grandchildren spent a lot of time in the pool. The beach was fun and a good place to fly kites. We have stayed in Newport quite a few times. This time the Hatfield Marine Science Center was having a Free day. There were lots of exhibits and things to do for the kids. Recommend this as a stop for families. The first time we went to Devils Punch Bowl. Would always stay at the Hallmark Inn when in Newport. Staff was great and if you forget anything for the kids, they seem to have that item for you.

Room Tip: They also have rooms for pets
