We so enjoyed staying at the Shearwater Inn in Lincoln City. Most definitely recommending to our friends/family!
The staff was very kind, curteous, and we loved the idea of the hotel being dog-friendly. We really loved that our breakfast was brought to our room each morning with the newspaper.
Very well kept facility and economical price. Lots of fun activities to do while we were there, and the beach was walking distance. We were pleasantly surprised at how quiet our stay was.
We will be back!! Thanks for everything, (especially to the gal who had the dog named: Gracie!" She was fun to chat with!

We chose the Shearwater Inn because we wanted a pet friendly place close to the beach and with upscale bedding and amenities for a leisurely three night stay. We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel.

We booked the suite on the second floor. Our room had a balcony that had a peak view of the ocean because there is another property that sits between Shearwater and the beach. However, the hotel is within a hundred feet of beach access, and we enjoyed the easy access to walk our dog.

This hotel goes above and beyond to cater to dog owners, but there are no cats allowed. The complimentary pet basket included everything to make a great beach visit; doggie towels, biscuits, an extra sheet to cover the sofa, doggie bags and feeding/watering bowels. The extra sheet impressed us because we were worried the room would have a doggie smell, and since the sheet came with a request to cover the couch at check in, the room didn't have any pet odor. In fact, it was extremely clean and fresh smelling. The pet walking area is also especially clean and well maintained. The hotel happily restocked the pet basket with supplies, which I think adds to the cleanliness of the property. For example, doggie bags, towels and extra sheets are placed or provided at all the appropriate areas.

As for us...the lobby area with wine tasting and activities, (games, movies, books), was a real treat. This is a smaller hotel, and it has a very accommodating staff that caters to specific requests for extra room amenities. We were constantly greeted with inquiries for anything we needed. Our suite had a full kitchen that was well stocked with the implements for food preparation. We didn't cook during our stay, but it was nice to know we had that option. The beds and linens were very, very comfortable. The over-sized tub with jets was a real treat, although it is definitely a one person tub. Wi Fi was awesome, and the room had its own router. In fact, it was the best wi fi I have ever used in a hotel.

This hotel is right next to the D River Park in Lincoln City. However, the river separates the hotel from the park. The beach in LC is incredibly nice to walk, and many hotels are on the bluffs overlooking the beach, but the Shearwater is practically a flat walk to the beach except for a slight incline up/down from the hotel. There is a drive down access to the beach, but it is about a quarter mile north of the hotel. Many people use the drive access who do not want to navigate the bluffs.

Overall, this is great pet-friendly hotel that is comfortable, clean and extremely accommodating. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies or views facing the ocean, but get a room on the upper floors for views. A...

100 feet from either the beach or Kylo's. Ocean view room. Clean room. Breakfast delivered every morning for free. Free movies, daily free wine tasting. Very nice and large room. We had a suite with a separate bedroom, kitchen, living room with fire place, and balcony for a very inexpensive price. Also dog friendly. We will definitely go again.

Room Tip: get a suite, it is not very much more.

Just an hour away from Salem, OR the Shearwater Inn, Lincoln City, OR is a favorite get away for us. Spent two nights and was greeted by Cindy (met her on previous stays). Cindy was very courteous and wanted to make sure that we enjoyed our stay. We had made reservations for only one night but was able to stay two nights when Cindy was able to arrange for us to stay in the same dog friendly room by moving guests scheduled in the room our second night. Bed very comfortable and the room very clean. Had a great view of the ocean. Enjoyed the breakfast delivered to our room. Will be back!

We love how pet friendly they are. The people who stay are friendly and keep it clean in the pet area too. The staff was very friendly also. It's so nice to get your breakfast brought to you every morning......makes it convenient when you have a pet with you. Overall.....we love the place and keep going back.

Accidentally found this wonderful place -- glad accidents happen. Great staff including Krystel. Great room, great view, great restaurant across the parking lot. Our first time in the area on our way back to Southern California. Was very impressed. Would recommend it without any reservation.

Room Tip: Top floor you can get for the best view.
