Living less than an hour from the Oregon coast, we enjoy making 2-3 getaway trips there. Until now, we had not stayed at the Hallmark Resort in Newport, so it was time to try it out. Throughout our two-day stay there, we found the staff friendly, informative, and very responsive. Every time we passed through the lobby, they checked to see if everything was fine or whether we were having any problems. Their attention was simply amazing.
Like many similar accommodations built in the 70s or early 80s, the Hallmark is showing signs of wear, but we quickly realized that the Resort is in the midst of a major renovation that looks impressive. It is challenging to keep the Resort running while closing a portion of it for remodeling. Already, a portion of the Resort has undergone renovation. The room we stayed in, which suited our needs, is next on the list.
The swimming pool area has already been redone, and was a wonderful facility to for us to relax and recreate. The showers and dressing rooms were very good. My only suggestion would be to have hooks to hang clothes on while changing from or into swim suits. The pool itself was airy and relaxing, and sitting in the hot tub was a treat. We didn't use the exercise room, but we noticed that it had a good selection of exercise machines. As one who does quite a lot of stretching and physioball work, I would have liked a somewhat larger room, but this one is bigger than many such rooms at other motels.
We thank the Resort staff for arranging very pleasant weather Wednesday afternoon and Friday morning, making ocean views and Wednesday's sunset spectacular. We will expect similar service the next time we stay there. : )
