I've stayed 3 times now. 1 time in s1 and twice for s2. Both that are on the very top hill. This place and those 2 cabins are AMAZING. Never had any problems with anything. I cannot wait to go back next week. It's like a mini vacation. The private hot tub on deck is what brings me back. Very...

Being from the area I've always wanted to try it out. It was ok for a one or two night stay, which is what we did. One night. We were in B-7, it was an older one towards the bottom of the hill. It was my husband and I. It needs a little attention as far as more detailed cleaning...

Our cabin is not good! Bathroom shower is filthy (they don't provide any cleaning products) I wear flip-flops when I shower; outdoor furniture is rusty and broken down; when I turned the oven on it was so dirty that it smoked so much the smoke detector went off; the portion between the leaf of the table and the table was...

Bill D, Manager at Whaleshead Beach Resort, responded to this review

I will never understand why people like this bother to leave their home. Once they get to their destination, the complaints begin. Unfortunately, these types of people never come to the office with their complaints. Instead they enjoy their stay and then rip the company with bogus claims hoping they can get a reduced rate. Just once we would like...

We just go back from celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary at the Whaleshead "Resort". We have been a Whaleshead fan and customer for the last 10 years but it is very obvious that this place is being mismanaged. Our unit, U25 had a disgusting smell to it when I walked in on Friday August 22nd. It was the smell of...

Now that I have had some time to cool off I will respond to this reviewer. This person apparently is someone that is comfortable with staying in unsuitable conditions for the pleasure of trashing a person or property. U-25 was cleaned 2 days prior to her arriving and at that time there was no smell in the cabin. Now we...

Our stay was amazing! We stayed in I-12 and I loved it. I don't understand how anyone could have a bad stay here. The view was absolutely incredible and it was so nice and quiet the whole time. The bedroom was pretty small but that is really to be expected in something that is pretty much a mobile home. There...

Just got back from Whaleshead yesterday and I don't understand how there are negative reviews. Our cabin (U-12) was absolutely awesome. The staff was very attentive to our requests and the reunion went off without a hitch. The views are stunning and our family stayed in about 7 different cabins. While some have less furniture than others, we had no...

Thank you to the folks at Whaleshead Beach Resort!!! We had a great stay. Out of town but not to far, clean, comfortable, and most of all quiet. Loved the set up and had a very good time in the Brookings area.

We just stayed for two nights and the cabin was amazing. Perfect for the 5 of us and a very reasonable price. Front office was very helpful with anything we needed. View of the ocean was a little distant but still spectacular. We will be back!!

Bill D, Manager at Whaleshead Beach Resort, responded to this review

You just have to love this. Wife and daughter slept in the loft beds and after their stay the reviewer counted each and every one of the 'bites'. It is obvious that this reviewer read an older complaint about bed bugs and decided to run with it. He even went so far as to look up the mating cycle of...

Bill D, Manager at Whaleshead Beach Resort, responded to this review

Really do not understand some reviews and this is one of them. Prior to this party checking in, this cabin was given a 'deep clean' so I really don't know where the food and muck came from. Did a child spill something that didn't get cleaned up?? (Child doesn't have to be a minor) You burned your dinner on the...
