Best Western Agate Beach Inn
Ranked #5 of 24 Hotels in Newport
Reviewed July 16, 2011

The hotel is clean and comfortable, but we were given one of the worst rooms we've ever had in any hotel. Across from the elevator, next to the ice machine, and right above the parking. Noise all day and all night and the front desk wouldn't budge on giving us a new room. In addition, the water from the bathroom sink smelled really bad. and every time we left the room, we had to stop at the front desk to get new keys.
Two stays at Best Western on this trip lowers my sense of the type of hotel they are tryingto run.

Compared to some of the hotels/motels we stayed in along the coast of Oregon, this one was pretty good. True, it was a bit outdated but it was perfectly fine and we had such a good view. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant which was very good and our waiter was unexpectedly humorous. I have no problem recommending this hotel.

I'm a native Oregonian and we had never stayed here before, but we thought we got a good deal in purchasing a Groupon for a night's stay. However, we were incorrect. The hotel was run down and dumpy, the walls were paper thin between rooms, (you could literally hear every single move the next door neighbor made or said), the gift shop was only open a few hours a day, (as were the hotel restaurants), and the hotel and restaurant staff were marginal at best. The beds were supposed to be queen-size but they were really full-size and one bed was crammed so close to the wall you couldn't get out of bed unless exiting at the foot of it. The bathroom in our room was so tiny that you couldn't open the door without hitting the toilet and the entire time we felt like a juggling act with three of us trying to get ready in the morning. Our package was to include a complimentary bottle of champagne and when we mentioned it wasn't in our room to the front desk person he yelled at us. I advise travelers avoid this hotel and stay someplace else. Yuck!!

Room Tip: The best room? Someplace else.

We were expecting our room to be oceanfront with a balcony to hang out on and enjoy the view. Unfortunately, we didn't get either. Although you can see the ocean from the room, it's definitely not oceanfront. The hallway smelled like cigarette smoke, and the room is dated.

We had very friendly and helpful service on check-in and check out. The room was quite large, clean and comfortable. The location is great -- located less than a block from sandy Agate beach with view rooms on the Western side.

It's located on the North Side of Newport which is close to the Yaquina Head natural area / lighthouse and Devil's Punchbowl and a short drive to Depoe Bay which was hosting a parade of flower-bedecked boats on Memorial Day.

The only thing I didn't like about the place was the sketchy footbridge from the upper parking lot to the 6th floor. It's not enclosed and when the wind kicks up it pushes you -- it was pretty scary crossing it with my squirrely 2 year old.

After reading previous reviews I was somewhat apprehensive about our upcoming stay; however, it was one of the most pleasant hotel stays we have experienced. Our ocean view room was large, comfortable and included both a microwave and fridge. The room was set up so that the chairs could easily be turned to allow you to enjoy a glass of wine in your room while simultaneously enjoying the sights and sounds of the ocean. The location was near numerous restaurants and even a Wal Mart; however,some of the best food we had was from the hotel restaurant. Both quality and service was much above standard hotel restaurant fare. We will definitely stay here again.

Stayed there for a night on the way down Highway 101 to San Francisco. The rooms are very outdated (cheap cadet inwall heater took hours to reach decent temperature), had old TV's and the quality of signal was bad in kids room but ok in ours. Got a rude person taking room service orders but the food was fine and so was who delivered it, although very limited dinner menu. Felt in general it was too expensive for the level of quality, that is why the low value score. Otherwise I think still the best bet for the location.
