We spent 2 glorious nights in a Grand Suite at the O'dysius Hotel. It is a cross between a B & B and a boutique hotel. Our suite had 2 bedrooms (1 K and 1Q), sleeper sofa, 2 full baths, full kitchen, fireplace, and 2 balconies overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The beds were quite comfortable, although the Q bed is in the bedroom by Hwy 101 which brings with it traffic noise. Each evening this hotel has the lovely tradition of a wine tasting/social hour. Every morning a delicious continental breakfast is delivered to your room. (We chose yougart/granola/fresh blueberries and one of us chose fresh fruit with pastry.) This allowed us to enjoy our breakfast while lounging in the spa robes and slippers supplied in our room.
The hotel is spotless. All staff members were extremely friendly and helpful. At the front desk, Jen went out of her way to help us out. Cindy, the manager, passed on many hints on how to spend our day.
We three women in our 50s thoroughly enjoyed our time at the O'dysius. Next time I think I might just bring my husband . . .

This is the best small hotel that one could find! The staff is absolutely concerned about your well-being, happiness, and comfort. What a refreshing change. The rooms are spotless with plenty of
room and a great view. It would be nice to have more king-sized beds in the hotel, but one can't have everything.

Our puppy, Paddington, was welcomed with open arms. Everyone went out of the way to allow him access to all areas of the hotel. He went to the wine tasting with us and they even "baby sat" him at the front desk while we ate dinner one evening. Where else would you find that kind of personal attention?

No drawbacks that I can see unless someone wants a pool, workout room, etc. Relaxation and comfort are the name of the game at O'dysius.

Although the hotel, lobby and social areas are nicely appointed, the rooms do not warrant the prices charged. My wife and I travel many times yearly and we have seldom if ever encountered a worse bed. The double bed, with fine linens to be fair, consisted of a wire frame mattress thinly covered by cotton padding. We are not large people (300 lbs combined weight) but we awoke both mornings miserable from a tortured night sleep, trying to get comfortable on this medieval torture device! My wife thinks every room comes with a jetted tub, so that you can try to soak away your miserable backs, shoulders and hips. If you advertise yourself as a "luxury" hotel, shouldn't that include a decent bed? Advice: stay elsewhere for less and get some real rest.

The value of a guest's comments on their experience is invaluable!! And so very much appreciated. Thank you!!! After receiving the Comment Card left behind, I checked the bed myself and sure enough, not up to our standards. The bed has been replaced with the Top of the Line Serta (not available at the retail level). These are the mattresses used throughout the property. We constantly purchase new furniture as necessary. My parents built the hotel and maintain the philosophy that if you need it, get it. And, while I attempt to spend a night in each of our guest rooms myself, it isn't always accomplished. THANK YOU for your comments and for your help in making certain that we remain Lincoln City's luxury hotel. Most Sincerely, Cindi

My wife and I stayed here for one night and found our room to be very relaxing! The bed was so comfortable. It faced the balcony and it was so nice to have our sliding door open to hear the ocean, as well as have our fireplace going. My wife was so relaxed so slept for 10 hours! The continental breakfast delivered to your room was a very nice touch! They also have a wine social in the evenings which we missed but when we arrived the host graciously offered us a few glasses of wine upon our arrival. It was very sweet! I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again!

This is a lovely, pet friendly hotel. I was especially impressed at the welcome we, and our pet, received upon check-in and during the entire stay. The staff was so personable and accommodating, the room was very nice,comfortable and clean. The building was well constructed and we heard very little of our neighbors. The only drawback is the location.....although there is a wonderful ocean view, the nearby properties are very close and at night there was much noise from the beach......sporadic fireworks (sounded like gunshots) every night. Still, this is a place that stands out......feels more like a B&B than a hotel.

My husband and I stayed here on our first trip to the coast for 2 nights and would defintely recommend this hotel to others. The turn down service, robes and slippers were a nice touch that you would only expect from a more upscale hotel. The room was clean and spacious with a fireplace and even though we were only on the 2nd floor, we still had a view of the ocean. When we asked for a recommenation on a good restaurant, several options were given to us and they made the reservation for us as well. They also have a binder with menus of many restaurants in town to help you decide. This is a great little hotel!
