Stayed on the third floor with a balcony and the most spectacular view of the beach and the magnificent sunsets. Open the sliding glass door and the transom above the door and you will sleep like a baby with the sound of waves. Rooms are very clean and the service is excellent. There's even popcorn in the office! My kind...

Relaxing and comfortable and an incredible view. Third floor with a balcony. Microwave refrigerator many good restaurants nearby. The Vietnam memorial walk across the street has a paved walk to the beach.

This is not a boutique hotel - no luxuries, no room service, none of that. What you get is great ocean view, across a lightly traveled street from the beach with sound of the surf, good Newport location in Nye Beach, friendly staff, clean rooms, and good mattresses. If that's what you want, this is a great place.

This was one of the nicer places I stayed while on vacation on the Oregon coast. I loved the view of the ocean from my room. I could even see whale spouts from my balcony! The room clean, the bed was comfortable, and all necessary amenities were provided in the room, including free wifi. They even had a full size...

We recently stayed with friends at one of the beach houses for the Whaler. What a great experience. We had plenty of room and privacy for all of our kids. The staff was very accommodating. The rates were extremely reasonable in light of the number of people we had. We will return in the future.

Stayed two nights this last weekend. Room was clean and we had a great view. We opted to stay on the first floor for less $. View was still amazing. Every room has a balcony. Check in was quick and friendly. Best part for us is this hotel is pet friendly. We will stay here again.

I love the view from the Whaler. We've been here twice. It's very clean and nice and the location is excellent. We sleep with the deck slider open and listen the to ocean across the street. Nice indoor pool and continental breakfast. We enjoy all of it and look forward to going back again.

First time staying at The Whaler and we will definitely make a return visit. We had a Queen balcony room. Although the facility is on the first street next to the ocean, it is on the east side of the street so there are several single story vacation rental houses that you look over to see the ocean. So request...

No really each room has a balcony with an ocean view. Not like some who advertise but don't have. I stayed here recently due to a death in the family and was upgraded to the the corner suite which had views of the ocean from the balcony and the side window. It was lovely. Free continental breakfast in lobby that...
