Reviews of Whale Cove Inn

  • 2nd Floor Lobby

A new star is born on the Oregon Coast!

FROMMER'S OREGON "Quite simply, there is nothing else like this boutique inn anywhere on the Oregon coast. The Whale Cove Inn is the most sophisticated and contemporary small inn on the coast. Huge rooms with king-size Tempur-Pedic beds, gas fireplaces and outdoor Jacuzzis on private decks are exquisitely sumptuous and romantic. That the inn also has what just might be the most jaw-dropping view on the coast seems only befitting of such luxury. ...you will experience the best that Oregon's shore has to offer."

Can't imagine celebrating 25 years of marriage anywhere else! So very relaxing and theraputic. Hope to return someday. :)

"Nearly Perfect for Lovers of the Ocean and Luxury!"

Davis, Ca

Every bit as appealing as the photos on-line -- both in the suite of rooms and the view/location. Like your own tasteful, sophisticated urban apartment overlooking the sea. Place is very well designed for quiet (never heard the road or my neighbors). Staff was very helpful and restaurant was terrific. Worth the splurge.

Go for a third floor room so your jacuzzi tub is truly private, but make sure it's working (mine didn't for 3 nights despite owner's attempts to repair). It was a nice soak listening to the waves though.


"Luxuriously Delightful!"

Central Oregon

We received a night's stay at Whale Cove as a gift and what a treat!!! Roomy, great bathroom, a huge shower with side and overhead shower heads, comfy bed, a jetted tub on the deck overlooking the cove that we used twice and of course, a terrific view of the cove and ocean. The breakfast was very nice served by a charming lady who was anxious to please. The receptionist was helpful and friendly. Everything was spic and span. We didn't hear traffic but the ocean roar was great!!! We would like to visit again.


Very Very Relaxing!
Love the room. We'll be back again.

P.S. The view is amazing! especially, lying in bed and the sun shines in awaking you to the sound of the crashing waves.

"The Nicest Hotel on the Oregon Coast!"

Eugene, OR

I'm a lifelong Oregonian, and remember passing by the 'old' Whale Cove Inn many times. That was a nice, but pretty standard motel, with a great view. The new WCI is amazing! My wife and I received a 1 night stay as a wedding gift - one of the best gifts we received.

The rooms are equal to any hotel I've experienced, and the staff was very accommodating. We walked into a gorgeous room, with the sound of the surf crashing below, the music soft and mellow, and the fireplace glowing. To top that, a soak in the jacuzzi tub on the private balcony was the perfect way to wind down a long day of whale watching and sight seeing on the coast.


"The Best Stay-cation option EVER!!!"

Coeur D'Alene, ID

First, my wife and I were disappointed that again this year we had to cancel our plans for a vacation. Then we discussed the option of staying in the NW (We're from Idaho) and we decided to find the best place on the Oregon / Washington Coast to slow down, "drop out," and breathe.
We found it...the Whale Cove Inn in Depoe Bay.
The location overlooks Whale Cove, right on the water, about 2 miles south of the bridge in Depoe Bay. Not only were we blown away with the oceanfront views but we were happy to find ourselves conveniently half way between Lincoln City to the north and Newport to the south. The Whale Cove Inn has views to die for, decor of a 5 Star hotel, and the intimacy of a european Inn. Downstairs, at Restaurant Beck, the food is prepared with a level of care and perfection that would rival any dining offered in the NW Region.
Whale Cove Inn offers unparalleled ocean views, private hot tubs, world class decor, and a value that is spot on for getting away without paying too much. Without question, Whale Cove Inn is the finest boutique Inn in the Pacific Northwest. We highly recommend anyone considering a mini-vacation on the Oregon Coast to book their stay at Whale Cove Inn. Those who do, will not be disappointed!


"Spectacular Pacific Coastline View"

Algonquin, IL

I can honestly say that is is one of the best places we have ever stayed. Located right on Pacific Coast Highway 101, the modern, upscale room was awesome! It had a spectacular view from our balcony's hot tub and the bedding was so luxurious and comfortable that it was hard to get out of bed in the morning. The staff and general manager went way out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed during our 4 day stay. After a wonderful breakfast downstairs, we would set out for a new adventure. Traveling east to wine country, (love the Pinot Noir) or south to the Devil's Punch Bowl and Sea Lions caves. We will never forget the beautiful sunsets and will definitely return to a place that has our hearts!




Ok, I'm not one to dish out perfect reviews about ANYTHING. BUT I would have to say this is close to THE BEST if not THE BEST hotel I have ever stayed at in my 30 yrs of travel. The rooms are exquisite the views are fabulous the bed was wonderful, the staff is there but not there in your face. I would rate this hotel 5 across the board. I will say we got lucky that the weather was perfect for this area of Oregon but I can't imagine a more beautiful place to sit and view a rainy day or a raging storm than the Whale Cove Inn.
