“Beautiful View, Nice Property”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2012

The view, service, room and restaurant were all amazing! We loved the on deck jacuzzi tub! Very very very nice place. A bit pricey but worth every penny. Service was great! We will visit again for sure.

We visited the Whale Cove Inn for our 30th anniversary and it may be a new favorite for us. The view from our room was incredible! Winter is the best time as the surf is high and the waves crashing. Our room was large, totally comfortable and appointed to the last detail. Sarah and the rest of the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

We were able to attend the Italian Supper Club dinner at Restaurant Beck on Sunday evening, which was a real treat. The food was delicious, perfectly prepared and served by a knowledgeable staff.

Breakfast, which is included with the room, was also excellent with a variety of fruit, wonderful fresh pastries and two very tasty fritattas as well as a selection of morning beverages.

It was a lovely experience and we will definitely return!

We booked three nights for my birthday. This was way more than we would normally spend for a night's lodging ($395/nt), but for a special occasion it is worth it. The suite is huge and nicely appointed. The view from the balcony with jacuzzi is spectacular! Devon made a sumptuous breakfast and way too much! There was always fresh fruit, a compote with yogurt, fruit and granola, an egg dish, and homemade pastries/breads. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only reason we don't give WCI 5 stars is because the cleaning staff never replenished the toiletries, and on our last day we left at 9:00, returned at 3:00, and the room had not been made up or towels changed, even though we were the only guests that night.

Room Tip: Second floor for more privacy.

Nestled on Whale Cove, this modern, very stylish accomodation is easily the diamond of the Oregon Central Coast. Located between Lincoln City (Rt. 18) and Newport, you can expect fabulous views of both the bay and the ocean. Whales are often seen as well as a resident population of seals. The suites are first class, with a tub on the balcony. There are both one and two bedroom suites, ideal for families. To top things off, Restaurant Beck is located on the main level. So those staying get the best hotel accomodations and the finest restaurant on the coast. Worth every penny.

Room Tip: all rooms have great views

We stopped here driving by and would have stayed but they don't take pets. It is very thoughtfully done down to the private outdoor jacuzzi on the balcony to the Temperpedic kingsize beds. The restaurant is chef owned and compliments the accommodations perfectly. The view of Whale Cove is incredible. Though this is right on Hwy 101 you cannot hear the traffic inside. Sara was incredibly helpful. Had they accepted dogs. we would have been there!

Room Tip: any room would be perfect

I stayed at The Whale Cove Inn this past summer and my wife and I were very impressed. The building is very modern and hip and one can get the impression that the service might be "cold" in nature. The good folks at The Whale Cove Inn couldn't be nicer and more accommodating. The rooms were incredible and the food was even better. The Whale Cove Inn is a must stay on your journey down the coast.
