Came here for a quick family get away. Friendly staff, free popcorn, and beach views. Also the kids enjoyed pool. The ocean beaches are right across the street. We stay here when we come to Newport. Clean and comfy. It is showing its age a bit. Has a fridge, ironing board, a small deck you can sit and enjoy the... More

Well we picked a very busy time to try and stay at the coast, every where we tried to book a room was full! We called The Whaler and all they had was a house to rent for the night, with lack of options this is what we decided to do, and could not have been happier. I would recommend... More

This is a nice clean and well maintained place to stay. The queen size room is small but not cramped. The view was wonderful and we enjoyed sitting and looking at the ocean and people watching. Easy walk to restaurants and to the beach access..

The Whaler is a lovely, well-kept motel with amazing ocean views (see photo) and a welcoming staff. Reasonably priced, free WiFi and Continental breakfast. Walking distance to great dining and arts venues.

Stayed on the third floor with a balcony and the most spectacular view of the beach and the magnificent sunsets. Open the sliding glass door and the transom above the door and you will sleep like a baby with the sound of waves. Rooms are very clean and the service is excellent. There's even popcorn in the office! My kind... More

This is not a boutique hotel - no luxuries, no room service, none of that. What you get is great ocean view, across a lightly traveled street from the beach with sound of the surf, good Newport location in Nye Beach, friendly staff, clean rooms, and good mattresses. If that's what you want, this is a great place.

This was one of the nicer places I stayed while on vacation on the Oregon coast. I loved the view of the ocean from my room. I could even see whale spouts from my balcony! The room clean, the bed was comfortable, and all necessary amenities were provided in the room, including free wifi. They even had a full size... More

We recently stayed with friends at one of the beach houses for the Whaler. What a great experience. We had plenty of room and privacy for all of our kids. The staff was very accommodating. The rates were extremely reasonable in light of the number of people we had. We will return in the future.

Stayed two nights this last weekend. Room was clean and we had a great view. We opted to stay on the first floor for less $. View was still amazing. Every room has a balcony. Check in was quick and friendly. Best part for us is this hotel is pet friendly. We will stay here again.
