Talk about service! We came to the Whale Cove Inn after business hours. The front desk had closed, but Beck Restaurant manager Stephanie (?) called Sarah, the GM at her home to see if there was a room for us that night. Sure enough, there was one suite for that night and Sarah said she'd drive back to work to... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending two nights at the Whale Cove Inn, one of the most memorable places we have ever stayed at. There are only nine or ten rooms, all of which have a view of the cove and the Pacific Ocean. Our suite had everything you could ask for -- a large living area,... More

The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. We even had a private hot tub overlooking the cover. While having dinner at Beck's we watched three whales just outside the cove. At breakfast we were delighted to watch a baby whale inside the cove! The baby whales often stay in the cove for safekeeping. At the east end of the cove... More

We decided that a trip up the Oregon coast would be just the thing to take a week-long break out of the Texas heat and we wanted to stop in Depoe Bay. The Whale Cove Inn is the best place we have ever stayed. Baby Grey Whale in the Cove, superior restaurant, exquisite suite, great location all led to an... More

We called on our way to the hotel and asked for an early check-in. I was in luck and was told our room would be ready around 12:30--it was! We walked into a warm hotel lobby with an amazing view. No whales were in the cove, but crashing waves and amazing cliffs were right outside the hotel lobby. I nice... More

I was on the Oregon Coast with cousins and realized I left my electric car charging converter at home. The new Tesla Superchargers at the Lincoln City outlet mall weren't complete so I needed to find a charger that plugged into my car without a converter. My GPS led me to Whale Cove Inn and I am delighted that I... More

We took a break from a week long camping trip to find peace, quiet, and a great bed. We, happily, found all of that at Whale Cove, but also so much more. When we first checked out the room and all it had to offer, we went out on the beautiful, spacious patio. In those first 5 minutes, we spotted... More

We stayed here for 2 nights after our small, intimate wedding. Our dinner at restaurant beck was phenomenal, and we enjoyed the quiet intimacy of the room. Our favorite part of our stay was the private whirlpool tub on the deck--the contrast between the cool sea air and the warm water was wonderful! The suite was spacious and modern, and... More

I recently visited the Whale Cove Inn as part of the Select Registry board meeting. I was so impressed with the warm welcome by their manager, Sarah. She was so informative of things to do in the area. She even came in on her day off to make sure our meeting went smoothly. The food at the Beck restaurant was... More

We have been visiting this area for decades. The Whale Cove Inn is our most favorite place to stay on the Oregon coast. The drop-dead gorgeous setting, along with the accommodations makes this a perfect get-away, particularly when whales come and frolic in the Whale Cove.
