As others have said, this is probably the best view and location in Deope Bay. Other inns and hotels are overlooking 101 or in the noisy harbor. I have also stayed at the Worldmark resort in the past as well, and actually enjoyed this equally, even without the full kitchen, much more romantic and cozy.
On this trip we were coming in from Crater Lakes in near the end of June by motorcycle. It rained on us all the way in along the coast for about 4 hours (hard) and we were drenched and cold. The staff was very accommodating and brought us extra towels without even asking once we were settled in.
Everyone at the inn was real nice, and made you feel at home. The vies are outstanding. We were in #7 and had a straight shot of the whole bay inlet area, a walk around indicated we had one of the better views, even over some of the larger units.
The only disappointing thing was it had a shower rather than a bath, which normally we don't care a whole lot, but would have been nice as we were a bit chilly from the ride to soak a bit.
Other than that, the location is great too, and quiet. In walking distance of town for some shopping and eats. All of the restaurants are great and the small town laid back charm is very pleasant and relaxing. No Walmarts here!, just a small block of businesses which all close early if the weather isn't perfect, so be prepared if shopping is your game. Not far from Lincoln City and Newport which have all those larger town creature comforts.
Depoe Bay in general is one of my favorite places to visit for some relaxation due to it's size and views.
Whale watching is a must while you are here, every time I have stayed I have been able to see whales FROM MY ROOM. but you really should take a charter out into the coastline for a real adventure and it only cost a few bones for an hour trip.
