“First timers soon to become regulars”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

We found the Steph on tripadvisor and waited to book our dates until the shoulder season deals arrived. We normally don't pay $300 for a room after discount but there is so much more about this place than just location, which of course is a jaw dropper. Most has been written about in recent reviews and it is all true.

A few details to add that I haven't seen lately. The afternoon wine tasting featured 3 types of beer and a half dozen wines, everything local and poured freely without tracking or judgement ;). The library setting is a bit cramped but you can take your drinks to your room and many do. The drinks are accompanied by some nice cheeses, bread, and crackers, great to tide you over until dinner. It is mostly a cruise ship type of crowd when we engaged in conversation and just about everyone seemed to be a return guest, some from the mid 90's. This place has a fiercely loyal following and it isn't hard to figure out why.

Breakfast is top notch. Hot oatmeal, fresh premium fruit, and baked items daily. Hot service varies every day with your typical items done so well. Cheddar laced scrambled eggs or pepper crusted bacon? Best ever. Dinner the same, almost as many servers as tables. By the way, yes the dining room is in the back of the place but it is on the second floor so it is more of a residential/forest view than a parking lot (glass half empty fellow reviewers?) view. Bright and elegant in our opinion.

Nightcap is served at 9pm for a half hour in the library and we retreated with it to our room. Hennessey, Baileys, liqueurs, about a half dozen choices. Not single malt territory but very nice.

Our room was on the first floor and we loved it. Still private and still the ocean view from your bed. Walk out access to the grass berm and beach is terrific. It sounds like higher floors are better for privacy but you ain't exactly slumming it on the first.

The staff and service take this place to a level deserving of the premium prices. They don't care about sand getting tracked in or how many times you visit the comp bar or how many cookies or salt water taffy you help yourself to in the lobby. All they care about is meeting and exceeding your needs, whatever they are. Just get yourself in the door and you will not regret it.

We will be back. Not at $500/night cuz we aren't there yet in life, but we will be back. If price causes you pauses, watch for the deals a month or two before ideally an off-peak arrival, do the math on all the included extras, add the way you will feel with treating yourself to a premium experience and you will see the value in the Stephanie Inn.

Room Tip: Only 4 rooms don't face the ocean. Make sure you face the ocean.

I was really impressed with this place, we weren't 100% sure if this was our kind of place, but just view from our 1st floor beach room, was worth the extra little bit of $$. Just to be able to open your blinds, turn on the fire, and sit in bed reading a book, or watching show, and being able to hear the ocean, was beyond the perfect experience. We do not drink, but if you do, they have 2x daily little wine things, they were kind to provide apple cider for us. They have such kind staff, that have lots of great advice. Our favorite places to ear while there was Newmans 988 ( reservation in advance) in a cute little yellow house, some of the most amazing lobster ravioli we've ever had, and they know how to cook their fish! We also went to a place called the Irish Table, my favorite of the trip, best salmon I have ever had. Then something quick and fun was the crepe place in town. The hotel rooms were large and spacious, tub was fantastic, shower great! Bed, oh my goodness the SHEETS!!!! I am buying a set! Fabulous beyond comfortable sheets! You could literally live in them! We enjoyed the fun little puzzle and chess set by the fireplaces, along with the long list of dvds they have for you to borrow. The breakfast was included in our package, it was nice to have, but was your normal breakfast buffet. If you are going to stay close, this place is perfect, being on the beach is definitely worth the extra bucks! Plus weather was fantastic, it rained 1 day, but was still so fun to go down in your boots and rain jacket and walk through the waves.

The Stephanie Inn is a gem on the Oregon Coast. From the greeting to the meals, this place does elegance in a wonderful, understated way. My wife and I stayed in the carriage house, a wonderful, spacious and quiet place, well decorated and brilliantly appointed, with such nice touches as beach chairs, binoculars, and a rubber duck for the tub. We loved the breakfasts - each day varied and was truly brilliantly prepared. Each staff person was clearly dedicated, warm and very professional, from the excellent masseuse to the kind chef who taught a great class on vinagrettes. The atmosphere is unforced (unlike so many "get to know you" b&bs) - even the afternoon drinks have a homey feel with great Pac NW wines and beers and a staff who truly knows them. And the beach - truly the most beautiful around - we walked constantly. We will definitely return to this wonderful inn.

Room Tip: All face the beach - the carriage house provides a bit more privacy.

I am sorry for anyone who has not had an outstanding experience like we have had this week! We are staying two nights for our 40th anniversary and had a wonderful dinner. Every member of the staff we met was friendly and helpful. The dinner was excellent. Although it rained, the ocean front room was very pleasant. We have stayed at many 5 star hotels, the Stephanie Inn is where we picked for our special day and it is as good as any of the 5 star hotels. This was our 3rd stay and it was as nice as ever.

Room Tip: The ocean front rooms are a must.

This hotel is very nice and cozy. We stayed in a ground floor room and loved it. One of the best parts is they don't gouge you on the extras; everything is included. They have complimentary bottle water in the rooms with awesome soda as well. Cookies in the lobby, candy, and apples. Bathrooms are very nice and large! It was really nice to walk out to the beach from your room and of course the views are wonderful (make sure you request a room on the ocean side). The staff was friendly, at check-out the front desk agent was very nice and gave me two more complimentary bottle waters for the road with some mints. There is service that comes around to your room in the evening if you need anything and they leave you with truffles. I would absolutely recommend this hotel especially if you are celebrating an anniversary or just want a romantic getaway this hotel is perfect! I have to add the breakfast the following morning is fantastic!

Room Tip: Request a room on the Ocean Side not parking lot side

My husband and I were visiting the Oregon Coast. It was cold out. We saw the sign for the Stephanie Inn, parked our cars and walked on the beach to go see Haystack Rock. It was cold. I wanted to go in to see the hotel and we were greeted by a lovely concierge who invited us to view a room, to sit and have tea with a fabulous homemade white chocolate scone (apish) and play chinese checkers, which we did. It was so lovely and such a gift and there was no charge for this treat, just generosity. I also read they have a fabulous chef and restaurant that is reservation only. By the great taste of that scone, my mouth begins to water and I want to make another plan to return and stay in the wonderful, hospitable Inn. Never have I been so welcomed somewhere just out of kindness.

Room Tip: I believe if you can afford it, get a room with a view of the ocean on the second floor.

Ocean front. Very comfortable rooms with upper middle range furnishings including Tempurpedic beds. Very good breakfast with way more selection than at dinner which is way overpriced and not worth it. Full priced rooms are too much but with a substantial discount this is a very pleasant place to say and would deserve full marks. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the guests enjoy mingling during the afternoon wine and cheese hour.
