“Not as expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Our family of 4 stayed here over the weekend in one of their kid suites. I was super excited after seeing their reviews online at tripadvisor and their photos on their website. The fact is, this is an old motel remodeled into a nicer looking one that can charge you about $120 more a night. The room is small. Their hardware, electricity circus, heating units and gas pipe (from other reviews) are old and outdated. I am not sure if they passed the safety inspection. The room was extremely hot on a cold and rainy November night. We had the screen door facing the ocean wide open for both nights and still need to keep our blankets off throughout the night.

The hotel is nicely decorated with modern style though. Many reviewers compliment on their French press. It's really just okay. I love coffee and love it strong but they grind their coffee at night so by morning, coffee loses its oil and essences. No amount of French press can revive that. It is however, a nice new twist to the traditional coffee maker. Their breakfast is better than most continental breakfast though. One very big plus about the hotel is their towels, super soft and absorbent.

I do love most of their staffs. They are very friendly and helpful. However, there's one that works during the day, Kristina. She is rude and very unfriendly to little kids. I'm not quite sure what's her problem but she definitely ruin the experiences of our stay.

So, I will only recommend this hotel if you get a good deal, say less than $100 a night. We paid around $169 per night for the kid suite. I'd expect more for that price.

p.s. We were at room 14 which is about 15ft away from the office. Wifi is terrible!!! It's close to none at all.

Room Tip: We stayed at the Kid suite. It's really small and kid's window open to parking lot. They do...

Nothing is more disappointing to me than when any guest leaves our hotel feeling less than satisfied with our facilities or service. It is absolutely unacceptable for our staff to ever leave a guest feeling the service was anything but exceptional and I would like to personally apologize that our service fell short of amazing during your stay. I have addressed the issues with our staff and have taken the steps necessary to ensure that all issues with service will not happen again.

I appreciate you bringing the issues with the WiFi to our attention and I would like to apologize that this was a hamper on your experience with us. We contacted our IT company and this issue has been addressed and resolved. I'm glad you were able to take some positives from your stay and certainly hope that you will give us the opportunity to regain your business and allow us to "wow" you with the exceptional service that all of our guests deserve.

Fantastic view, comfy bed, friendly staff, miles of beach, short walk to restaurants, warm pool, (adults only after 9pm) very hot hot tub, steamy sauna, french press coffee, well decorated rooms, yummy breakfast (with fresh cut fruit, eggs, waffles, muffins, hot and cold cereal, and biscuits and gravy). We wont stay anywhere else after the great time we had there this weekend.

It's great to hear that you had such a wonderful time! We do look forward to your next stay and hope that the weather is more cooperative for you so that you can utilize the outdoor gas fire pits. We recently underwent our multi-million dollar renovations and many of the hotel features were upgraded and updated to better suite our guest's needs. I'm very happy that you truly enjoyed your time with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

I booked a room and massage at the Coho based on reviews from tripadvisor. I'm glad I chose this hotel for my Mom's 60th birthday surprise. I booked a suite and massage for her and both were wonderful. The staff at the Coho are polite, professional and very helpful. I couldn't be happier with my choice and will refer all my friends and family here in the future. EXCELLENT!!!

Room Tip: King suite was awesome for two or more people!!

It's so wonderful to hear that your mother enjoyed her birthday getaway with us! Our massage therapist are such an integral part of our spa and it's so wonderful that their services were well appreciated.

We hope that we get to see you and your mother again in the future so you get to experience the relaxation and amenities for yourself!

Front desk was above and beyond in customer service! Had fresh cookies at check in along with a free selection of tea and/or coffee they had you pick out as you were checking in. They called about an hour after check in to make sure everything was good and to see if you needed anything.

The weather was bad, but if it was nice, there are awesome fire pits they light in the evenings that over look the ocean.

We stayed in the sunset suite with the fireplace and jaccuzi. It was such a nice room! Remodeled with a sitting area and a mini fridge, nice sink, microwave, electric tea pot, french press, etc... Very clean and good quality! Awesome view of the ocean and a short walk to the beach!

The continental breakfast was good, nothing out of the ordinary really. Biscuts and gravy, toast, bagels, cereal, waffles (you make), fruit, muffins, hard boiled eggs, oatmeal with toppings, coffee, juice, tea, etc...

Room Tip: If you are looking for a romantic room, the Sunset suite is a really good choice!

We certainly appreciate all of your excellent words about our front desk staff. The Sunset Suites are a wonderful choice for couples looking to get-away to the coast. One favorite feature of the Sunset Suite is it's location in our new adults only building, which adds to the romantic setting.

We do hope that you get to come back when the weather is nice next time so you'll be able to enjoy our fire pits from "orchestra seats to mother natures masterpiece".

My wife and I stayed for the first time last weekend at the Coho Oceanfront Lodge. What an amazing place! It is beachfront hotel that has undergone a transformation from the hotels on the beach that we all enjoyed as kids to a modern, welcoming and romantic destination. My wife and I stayed in a suite that had a balcony, fireplace, jetted-soaker tub, walk -in shower, and kitchette. We were WAY impressed. The room was very comfortable, quiet and relaxing. They had a welcome reception with treats, wine and massages the first night we arrived, breakfast every morning and a cool outdoor fire-pit area were we enjoyed visiting with other guests. The staff were extremely friendly and professional. We will be back again and would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants an awesome beach experience.

Room Tip: The "couples-only" section are located on the south side of the hotel.

The Coho was nice enough to upgrade our room to a King bed suite with fireplace for our anniversary. It is an older hotel that has be refurbished. Great ocean view and location to town. The biggest negative was the bathroom. If you have heard the term "water closet", well this was it. The toilet and shower are in a closet. We kept knocking the toilet paper roll off sitting down. LOL The sink area didn't have sides and things would drop off. The ceiling made a lot of noise from those above. The sheets were not very soft and the bed a bit hard.
The good was the pool, spa and suana were great (Adults only from 9-11, Ou-la-la)! The staff were amazing with their friendlness. Getting DVD's to watch for free was nice too.
The price was a bit high for the age of the place, but overall really not to bad.

It is the simple things that make the world of difference, such as the upgrade to a fireplace suite for your anniversary. Being able to cuddle up in front of a fire and watch a movie makes for a nice romantic evening! We do apologize that the bathroom was smaller than anticipated, we will make sure to get you into a room with a larger bathroom next time you're down. We are currently in the process of replacing any linens that are not up to our strict standards. We're delighted you enjoyed your anniversary stay with us and we do hope to see you again!

Not only are the Sunset Suite rooms warmly and nicely appointed with sweeping views of the beach and ocean, the Coho offers a short drive to Newport and all the other wonderful places along the Oregon coast.
