First time staying at The Whaler and we will definitely make a return visit. We had a Queen balcony room. Although the facility is on the first street next to the ocean, it is on the east side of the street so there are several single story vacation rental houses that you look over to see the ocean. So request... More

No really each room has a balcony with an ocean view. Not like some who advertise but don't have. I stayed here recently due to a death in the family and was upgraded to the the corner suite which had views of the ocean from the balcony and the side window. It was lovely. Free continental breakfast in lobby that... More

We stayed here for a weekend away with the kids. With a family of 5 (3 teenagers), we were pleasantly surprised with the size of the room. It was extremely comfortable and impeccably clean. I loved sitting on the deck looking out at the ocean. Kids loved the free popcorn and tea/hot cocoa. The only part that wasn't impressive was... More

I always stay at the Whaler when I work in Newport. Staff are friendly, there is hot popcorn and a little breakfast included, and the ocean view rooms are clean and comfortable. Lots of restaurants are nearby and the beach is an easy walk. This is my "go to" place in Newport.

The room had a great view of the beach that was only steps away. It was a little to cold to spend much time on the beach so the kids used the indoor pool and spa. They loved it. This is just a great place to stay.

The beach is just steps away although this hotel is across the street from the beach. I love the sound of the surf rolling and other than that, it was very quiet and romantic. Very courteous staff. We walked a few blocks to dining, but some of the places were closed for winter. They do provide a continental breakfast of... More

This is a motel, not a luxury retreat. However the rooms are spotlessly clean, the beds are comfortable and the views are stunningly beautiful. The staff are friendly. We stayed over New Year, got a comfortable room in a beautiful location without breaking the bank. If you have champagne taste but a beer budget, this is a great choice of... More

We had a wonderful time here. Specious and clean room a baloney with ocean view. Everything as it is shows in the detail. Kids loved their staying. Stuffs are very helpful and friendly. You just can relax all day watching Oceanview from the room. Pool was clean but small.
