Reviewed May 8, 2013

My daughter and I spent two nights at the hotel, one in the Jane Austen room which was lovely and one in the J K Rowling room which was great fun. All of the rooms that we saw were cleverly decorated and definitely appropriate for the authors. The living room (overlooking the ocean), library and puzzle room are very relaxing and peaceful. A real bonus is the closet full of rain gear, hats, and gloves for the guests. Nye Beach is a wonderful area for a getaway.

A great place to unwind! With its many tasteful and thoughtfully decorated rooms, each boasts a theme of an author whose works are found within. There are multi-levels of treasures including cozy places to relax, read, view the beautiful ocean, browse the gift shop, or dine in their lovely restaurant! All affordably priced and worth going again and again!

We make an annual pilgrimage to the Sylvia Beach Hotel from Portland to escape the stress of the city and turn off the blackberries for a weekend. Each time we visit, we are enchanted by the rooms and delighted by the exceptional dinner (don't make a mistake and choose a restaurant in town - a four course meal for $23 a person can't be beat). We spent the first night in Melville - a spacious room on the 3rd floor with two big reading chairs facing the ocean. The bathroom was little and the floor sloped a bit, but the charm of the room and the scenery more than compensated. Our second night we moved down a floor to Amy Tan - a newer room beautifully appointed with Chinese art and furniture. One great thing about this place is no matter the weather - we've been in heavy storms (you stay in, play games, read in the library) or in dazzling sunshine (you walk miles on the beach in either direction and watch the tides go out and come back in and wait for the sunset). There is no shortage of creativity, imagination and community here. Its the place I go back to when I remember what it's like to live without electronics, to read, to think, to be at peace. Thank you again for a lovely weekend.

Although it was a few years ago, I spent several days here whilst attending the Newport Wine Festival. It was such a blessing to be away from TV and to be surrounded by wonderful peace and quiet. Each room is dedicated to a different author, and the two suites with fireplaces were AWESOME! Right next to the beach, it was a great place to relax and make new friends. Just as wonderful to sit as the rain came down outside surrounded by books and lots of relaxing overstuffed chairs and sofas to read or play board games with friends. I particularly enjoyed their wonderful restaurant downstairs. The food was worthy of a four-star restaurant and I cannot wait to go back with some of my literate friends for another visit.

Room Tip: The Mark Twain and Colette suites were fabulous, with fireplaces and lots of room, as well as big wi...

Clean, quiet, comfortable, fun, friendly staff. My daughter & I are trying to make it a Mother's Day tradition. We both love the quiet comfort of this place. We even plan a private tea for ourselves in the Library while we visit & watch the ocean. The food is terrific too. I can't say enough good about Sylvia Beach Hotel.

Room Tip: I've stayed in the Jane Austin-great for a single person stay & the view was great!

My beau and I were looking for a last minute destination during 4th of July weekend. I had visited Newport, OR in years past and remember seeing the Sylvia Beach Hotel. They let us tour some of the rooms that were available and we choose the William Shakespeare room. My favorite part were the numerous journals in the room and in the reading are that past guests wrote in describing their experience and sometimes intimate life experiences. I felt like a part of history when were there and we especially enjoyed the complimentary mulled wine overlooking the Pacific ocean. We also got engaged that special night! We'll be back!

The Sylvia Beach Hotel is a unique B&B that is ideal for those who want to sit by the fire, read to their hearts' content, and gaze at the ocean. All of the rooms are named after and decorated in the style of different authors, some of the newer ones being Jules Verne (fabulous!), J.K. Rowling (complete with a set of wands), and JRR Tolkien (welcome to The Shire). There's a cozy living room upstairs with a 180-degree view of the ocean and kitchen with complimentary coffee and tea. Each room also contains books by and about that author, and there's a full library on the fourth floor, in case you need more reading choices. No TVs, radios, or wi-fi; it's a perfect place to rest, relax, and meet other interesting people (optional).

Room Tip: For the best view, choose a second or third floor room facing north or west. Best decor: Verne, Rowl...
