I'll just give some of the low lights: no water for a shower or bath - fridge flooded the floor - sink would not drain - thermostat was either off or on, no temperature control - window handle broken off and would not lock, just to mention a few things, The location is great with wonderful views but total lack...

My wife and I stayed here for four nights (Sunday through Wednesday). Our room was clean and comfortable - not huge, but sufficient - and all the staff were friendly and accommodating. A small continental breakfast is provided in the lobby, consisting of several kinds of fresh fruit, instant oatmeal, small pastries, two kinds of juice, and coffee/tea/hot chocolate. The... More

Don't want to spend upwards of $200 a night for an oceanview room near Nye Beach? The Whaler is the answer. This family-operated property is across the street from the beachfront Don Davis Park, but you really don't sacrifice much in the way of a viewpoint; we watched resident whales spout and surface repeatedly on a recent September afternoon from...

The Whaler is a great choice for an amazing oceanfront view and overlooking a large sandy beach access. Sitting on the deck looking out at the ocean till sunset - GREAT. Very clean and comfortable rooms and very friendly staff. Walking distance to good dining. We will be there next year.

Evidently also known as The Whaler Motel ... Not a typical motel at all! Very clean and comfortable room with a small balcony overlooking the Pacific. Helpful and friendly desk staff. An excellent place to stay in one of my favorite Oregon Coast towns. No hesitation in recommending! One somewhat odd issue though ... all rooms are non-smoking and warning... More

I would rate this a 3/4 hotel. We had a beautiful view, the room was smallish but nicer than I expected. It is nice noon is the check out time, that is very generous. I was very excited to find a dog friendly hotel I would appreciate screens on the patio door so when you do have a dog, they... More

We have stayed at the Whaler in the past, and it is always good. The rooms are large and have ocean view balconies. The employees are very friendly. It is clean and has a friendly young staff. The price is very reasonable. The laundry room is very clean.
