A few weeks ago we stayed in the "Euro" suite on the first floor at Nelscott Manot. There are two suites on each of the first and second floors. The Euro suite has west and south facing windows, which provide expansive views from the sofa in the living room. I'd prefer this unit to the one next door on the north side of the building because in that unit, the view of the ocean to the north is completely blocked by the home/yard next door, so you can only look out due west.
There are two bedrooms in the Euro suite. The master, which is about 8 x 10', has a nice bay window seat. While the views are nothing to write home about (you look at the nearby homes), it's nice to hear the sound of the ocean at night. The blinds block out all the light, nice if it is sunny early in the morning.
The second bedroom is tiny with one small window that faces the street. The bed is about two feet away from one wall and a foot away from the other-and has a fire door on this narrowest side which opens up to the stairs that the occupants of the other units use to access their suites. Not so great as you hear neighbors clunking up and down the stairs. It lacks a clock.
The separate bathroom is nice with a jetted tub and spacious shower. Kitchen is small but adequate- they have a decent selection of wine & champagne glasses. The living room has a comfortable microfiber 3-person sofa, an oversized matching microfiber easy chair, and a coffee table, all contemporary and clean-lined. A fireplace is tucked into the corner with a roughly 24" old-style TV on the mantle. There is no wireless access.
The glass dining room table seats four (behind the sofa) and has four inexpensive tacky chairs. The entire unit is painted in a nice sand and soft green color scheme, easy on the eyes. There are contemporary light fixtures-most on dimmers, which is helpful because candles (and pets) are not permitted. An interesting quirk of the unit are the rolling blinds that are installed over the windows in the LR, kitchen and dining room (all three open spaces to each other): at night, when lights are on inside the unit, you can see directly through the blinds. So much for privacy! On the other hand, few are likely to be wandering around outside your unit at night.
There is a coin op washer and dryer downstairs- bring your own laundry detergent/dryer sheets.
The building sits on the top of a roughly four-story tall bluff, and there are more than 70 stairs that take you down to the beach. The height allows easy viewing of the resident grey whales which are seen daily off the coast.
A nice touch are the bathrobes, rose petals, and chocolates left for you upon arrival.
The light colored carpet in the living/dining room and the sofa/chair in the living room could use a deep cleaning. It's not a deal breaker- after all, you are at the beach, but it is an obvious flaw and an easy one to fix.
Overall, it's a nice place for Lincoln City, which is characterized by a number of tacky lodging establishments, but it wouldn't rate nearly as well were it in another city. Not a bad choice though if you have to stay in Lincoln City.
