“Not such a great experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2008

We've had good experiences at other Shilo Inns, so we expected the same from the one in Tillamook. First, the young woman at the front desk was not very knowledgeable or helpful. She wouldn't give us a discount (we are 57 years old) because we didn't have our AARP card. We paid $145 plus tax for a mediocre room that was in a noisy spot and had few amenities. We had just stayed at a beautiful hotel in Portland for $125/night with 1st class accommodations. Later that evening we saw the Best Western next to Fred Meyers and checked it out on line. It was $20 less a night and included breakfast. We felt truly ripped off! A month later we stayed at the Best Western and there is no comparison! Nicer, more accommodations and much better staff. We were treated very well and we got the AARP discount plus a delicious hot breakfast for $95/night!

We stayed here for 5 nights, it is a very comfortable, quiet and pleasant hotel. We were exploring the Oregon coast and this was an excellent & reasonably priced place to go hither and yon from. The rooms are more like mini suites, with a kitchen/ sitting area. Breakfast is not included in the price but the adjoining restaurant was good and there is a Fred Myers across the highway, which you can walk to and get breakfast there or buy groceries to have in you room. The swimming pool and hot tub were very welcome at the end of a long hot day and the free internet use in the lobby an added bonus. The laundry facilities and on site shop were also most useful. The hotel was busy whilst we were there but we heard no noise at all from other rooms or from outside. All in all a great place if you need a base for touring.
One little niggle - Shilo Inns charge $1.50 per bottle of water left in your room, so get some at the supermarket and take it in with you.

RESERVATIONS: Made an unexpected stop travelling through Oregon. When we arrived, the front desk clerk was the only one working and much to our surprise...there were quite a few people checking in on a week night, so there was a bit of a wait. No problem though. The front desk clerk was new, but very friendly and attentive. The only surprise was the cost. In a town like Tillamook, I was stunned that our rooms cost $129 a piece. We've stayed at nicer places in bigger towns and paid less. But maybe they need the money in a small town like Tillamook.

ROOMS: Upon arrival, we found opened used shampoo that looked like it was several years old. I thought someone had left their shampoo behind, until I discovered it was the motel's shampoo. It appeared the bathroom hadn't been cleaned all that well.

Overall room was VERY large and spacious. I was quite surprised, to say the least. Had an average-sized bathroom, but the biggest asset was the fact that there was a large sink area outside the bathroom to wash up, blow dry, etc. AND THEN...there was another sink area...more like a kitchen sink...but had a big mirror above it. So, my daughter and I were able to get ready at the same time without ever bumping into one another.

Other than bathroom, the rest of the room was clean. Bed and linens were fine. Working t.v. and I think we could have rented movies if we had wanted to. Blow dryer, iron, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker in room. VERY quiet...it felt like we were the only ones there.

The only downside, though this is being nit-picky, is that the room wasn't well-lit.

PREMISES: Pool and spa area open 24 hours a day, which in VERY unusual. We didn't get to use the facilities, but the pool area looked inviting and clean.

There is a restaurant next to motel that was very good. They also have a LARGE mini-market that is open until 10 p.m. In the morning, stocked up on Tillamook yogurt that was CHEAPER than if we had purchased it at the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Also had fruit, donuts, and lots of grocery items.

The Shiloh was a very nice place.

Those are the top three words I would use to describe this place to stay away from home. I have been using this Shilo for over 3 years, and the staff has always exceeded my expectations. This hotel is centrally located for any activities planned in the area, with the cheese factory just down the street. The pool and hot tub are open 24 hours a day which is great when my kids are with me and want to take a midnight dip. There is a restaurant and convenience store in the same building as well for anything that may have been forgotten. One of the most comfortable places to stay when I travel. The staff here always makes me feel at home.

Relatively inexpensive, located in a wonderful little town not far from the coast where everyone is friendly, smile a lot, and go beyound the norm to make you happy. Even the housekeeping staff was great! Has a nice clean indoor pool, and a relaxing jacuzzi. The beds are very comfortable and the pillows are plump, and the shower has plenty of pressure (don't you just hate those "dribbling" showers ( water shavers) that barely get your eyebrows wet? Well, their showers will knock you down if you don't hold on!

Has a gas station and convenience store attached, and they even have a laundry!

Did I mention the fantastic restaurant attached? Best Eggs Benedict since I ate at the Fairmont in New Orleans about 15 years ago! I sent the cook a tip! And, the blue berry pancakes have real hot blueberries on top! UMMMMMMM.

While visiting Tillamook, we stopped at the Shiloh to inquire about a room. We'd seen a $93 rate online, but the young lady at the front desk claimed she could not meet that rate. She insisted on charging us about $10 more, plus an outrageous $25 pet fee. She wouldn't deal on additional nights, despite the fact that the hotel wasn't anywhere near full. All this I can understand, but then she told us that they were the only hotel in Tillamook that took pets.
We called the Best Western up the street, where they had only a $10 pet charge, and charged us quite a bit less, and has a great breakfast. I can understand being powerless to change rates, although it's a bad policy, but don't lie to me! I don't know if anything she said was true at all!

Stopped overnight at the Shilo Inn on our way back to BC Canada, from Monterey, California. Decided to break up our trip by driving along the Oregon coast, Tillamook was the ideal stop.
The Inn had excellent facilities for travellers, a convenience store, gas station, restaurant and bar, even an indoor swimming pool. The room was adequate, if not a little noisy, with the plumbing from the adjoining room. The 'kitchenette' was very convenient and well equipped. We paid approx $160 for the room plus tax, and thought that 'pricey' compared to other overnighters we have stayed at.
In summary, the Shilo Inn offered convenience and facilities no other local establishment could match.

  • Liked — Convenience
  • Disliked — Noisy plumbing in adjacent rooms.
