“Honeymoon in the Camelot Room”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

This was our first stay at Moolack Shores, but we will definitely be back! We spent our honeymoon here in the Camelot Room. The view is fantastic and the six miles of beach were mostly vacant (due to off season) and was like having our own private beach. The room was quaint and perfect for our needs. Loved the idea of a visitor's journal in the room and was neat to read of other's experiences over the years. We were visited each morning by the resident Sea Gull as we drank our morning coffee out on our private deck. We would definitely recommend Moolack Shores to anyone! It was also a convenient location to make a day trip up to Lincoln City and not too far from downtown Newport for meals and such.

Room Tip: All rooms have great views but definitely check out their website for room pictures and prices to se...

After leaving Portland we had no reservations. Rainy, fog...Thought we'd look for something in Newport. I just wanted to see, hear the ocean (we live in Albuquerque). When we spotted moolack shores she said that had popped up as good value. I walked the beach in the rain. she did some work w/wifi. Loved the ocean view!!!

This is our 28th year visiting Moolack Shores and we stayed in our favorite Room (#7 - Oregon Room). This little old motel is a wonderful place with very nice people who manage the place. Frank works very hard to keep the place going. I noticed that one person complained about Yvette, Frank's wife. Sure she comes across a little grumpy, but that is just Yvette. I think the gentleman who put her down so much shouldn't be so harsh and should probably look elsewhere if he was so unhappy. We have already made our reservations for next year and look forward to our little hideaway. There aren't any phones, but who doesn't use their cell phones these days? They have a pay phone on the premises and anyone can call the office to get ahold of someone who is staying there. The place is old, but every year we go there, there has been an upgrade of some kind. The rates in the fall are really great and the location is close to Newport or a drive up to Depoe Bay a few minutes away and not that far from Lincoln City. We love staying at Moolack and would recommend it to anyone. We knew the original owners of the place and actually spent part of our honeymoon here 28 years ago. It is a really, really nice place and don't let anyone tell you otherwise!!!

Room Tip: Either Room #7 the Oregon Room or #6 the Hunting Lodge if you are looking for rooms with a full kitc...

We had the best stay here. The room was really nice and comfortable, quiet and cozy. We went there to get away and enjoy a weekend without kids. A much needed mommy and daddy time. Our room that we stayed in was a Nautical/ cabin of ship. It really worked especially the port hole that actually worked. The freshness of the air when opening your patio door and looking out towards the beach was nice as well.

We were pleasantly surprised... we stayed in the antique room. Our private deck was feet away from the private beach. The staff was great...we will be coming back! The price was affordable. Now I'm just trying to get my 200 characters in.

We just got back from our second stay in the Lighthouse Room at Moolack Shores and once again – it was a heavenly stay! I cannot get over how comfortable the room is – WAIT – It is SO NOT a ‘room’! For about the same price as a regular, crappy hotel room, you get a whole little ‘cabin’! The kitchen, dining and living rooms make you feel SO at home - and with a fire going in the evening??? PERFECT! The king-sized bed is truly one of the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept in – WAY more comfortable than my bed at home (which is a bummer lol) and taking a hot shower after a day crabbing or out on the sand is wonderful. The beach view from the deck is fabulous, even if it isn’t quite as ‘beach front’ as some of the other options within the hotel. You can see most of the beach and the waves, so that’s beachfront enough for me because I will never book another ‘room’ besides the Lighthouse – and will never stay anywhere else but Moolack when I’m anywhere close to Newport – it’s SO terrific! Hosts and staff are the most pleasant you will encounter – I just can’t say enough good things about Moolack! WE LOVE IT HERE!!!

We stumbled across this hotel during our trip up the Pacific Coast Highway on motorcycle. We were looking for a small locally owned place to spend one night and they happened to have a room left. They said it had the worse views of all the rooms, but it turned out to be gorgeous!! We ended up staying two nights!! Not only a beautiful view from your room a beautiful deck over looking the coast and ocean. On our second night we saw whales breaching right from the deck!! They were motorcycle friendly and accommodating in every way. We were in the aviator suite with a kitchenette, large bathroom and bedroom living room combination. Minutes from downtown with wonderful seafood restaurants!! We will definitely be back!!

Room Tip: The rooms farthest from the road will have the best views, but be more expensive. Each room has it...
