“Nice, but not all that.”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I sometimes question the veracity of TA reviews and whether they are indeed legit. This place is rated #1 and granted,I didn't check out any other hotels here in Newport, but from my experience, that rating may be a tad bit inflated.

I figured I may as well stay on the ocean front and when I called, all they had available was one of the condos. It was more than I needed but I did enjoy the beach and sleeping to the sound of the surf. The condo itself was certainly not deluxe, but adequate. I think it's an individually owned unit that is managed and rented out by the Inn (it was in the adjacent property). Clean but well-used, amenities very basic, nothing really special as some of the other reviews seemed to imply. Very close to restaurants and shops.

Inn at Nye Beach has very large rooms, and was clean. It appears to be a relatively new hotel, or updated. However, the management seemed overwhelmed, and we were always stepping over large building upkeep crews and equipment. For a rainy first stay in Newport, we slept well and drove only short distances to amazing seafood. There is no one on the property past 8pm.

Room Tip: we enjoyed a room with a balcony that looked over the beach

We are happy you decided to stay with us and you seemed to enjoy the hotel overall. I would like to apologize that the projects interfered with your stay. Since purchasing the hotel in February, we have been undergoing constant upgrades to enhance the guests experience. You happened to catch us at the tail end of one of these upgrades which is why you encountered staff and equipment. As the projects are wrapping up, we hope that the end result is a much more pleasant experience for everyone who graces us with their presence.

I'm also sorry that you felt there wasn't any staff after 8pm, this should have been better communicated to you. During your stay we had someone working at the front desk of the hotel until 2am, though later in the evening may have gone to assist in our laundry room. If this was the case, our friendly guest service staff will routinely check on the front desk and always keeps a phone on them to answer calls. We also have 24 hour assistance for guests on site. By simply dialing "0" on a guest room phone, you will always be connected with a staff member who can assist you.

We do hope that you come back and visit us again in the future. Creating a friendly and enjoyable stay for our guests is our #1 goal and we still feel like we can achieve that for you.

We spent 4 days on along the Oregon coast last week and this was my favorite hotel! Check in staff was friendly and helpful, suggesting a great place for dinner and breakfast. There were fresh baked cookies waiting as well as OR wines to purchase in the lobby. The room was clean, with a great set up, modern, and most of all, a wonderful view of the beach/coast, with a double sliding door and balcony. The Yaquina Head lighthouse could be seen to the north. Nye Beach is a great little find in the touristy Newport. The area has unique shops and restuarants wthin walking distance of the Inn. I would stay here again!

We only stayed one night but I wish we could have stayed longer. Beautiful room, comfy bed, bath-sheet sized towels. Balcony view of beach directly below so we listened to the waves as we went to sleep. The only jarring note was the coffee - they hand you a packet of coffee for the morning as the room has a french press to use - it tasted like it came from a metal container of supermarket coffee.

I can't add much to previous reviews as we loved the inn, too! The décor, amenities (large fridge, microwave, coffee press, great assortment of teas and coffees, gas fireplace) and proximity to many walkable restaurants and the beach were beyond compare! It was wonderful! If you are a light sleeper get a room on top as we did have quite a bit of ceiling noise (?kids running around above us?) but regardless - we wish we could have spent a week. Easy parking, too.

Room Tip: Top room likely quieter.

My husband and I stayed here for one night and I wish we had been able to stay longer. The Inn is wonderful. The rooms are very nicely appointed and exceptionally clean. Loved the view from our balcony. The fireplace is a really nice touch for the cool coastal nights. Looking forward to a return visit.

This is was a beautiful hotel with beautiful views from the private balcony. It is fairly new construction which is a welcome sight in beach properties. The decor is lovely and even has a gas log fireplace. Nice underground parking.

Green Features: Loved this place. The bath amenities were in pumps. Even the freshly ground coffee, wrapped in brown paper, for the coffee press, smelled so good. In European style, the room key was required for electricity in the room.
