The best luxury Inn along Oregon’s north coast
the rooms at Whale Cove Inn are extremely large and luxurious and the view of Whale Cove is to die for. This is by far the best luxury Inn or Resort to stay at along the Oregon coast. And the on-site gourmet restaurant, Beck, creates the best meals along the north coast
Beautiful hotel and great for seniors
We live in Depoe Bay and needed a hotel with an elevator and 3 bedrooms suitable for seniors. The Whale Cove Inn is one of very few hotels in this area that offered these options. During Covid the breakfast is not offered. This is FAMILY owned so it is not 24 hour front desk service. And, folks, this is Depoe Bay. Internet is sketchy at best for residents here, let alone adding in all of the tourists during the busy season and holidays. This hotel is beautiful, has a fantastic view, and has lovely staff. Our 92 and 95 year old guests enjoyed the Pacific Harbor Seals while drinking their coffee on the spacious deck each morning. We also loved dinner at Beck, the highest rated restaurant on the OR coast located on site. The lodging is extremely large with kitchen (silverware, glasses, coffee mugs, but no plates or bowls), dining table, living room with gas fireplace, and 3 beds/2 baths. The master bed and bath have the view and a multi-headed shower with laminated instruction card! The other 2 bedrooms share a bath. There is a small lip in the shower of the guest room that was not a problem for one senior using a walker. Our experience at Whale Cove Inn was excellent. Clean and Covid precautions adhered to. Would highly recommend. A special thank you to the staff (cleaning and front desk women) for allowing early access to the room to place some welcome gifts and flowers. And the kitchen and wait-staff for accommodating our birthday cake early to be served at dinner that night. Although the restaurant is very busy, everyone enjoyed their meals and our waitress (Lana) was excellent. The wine list is varied and extensive. There is a cake serving fee (totally expected), as the kitchen cannot make special occasion cakes and bringing in outside cakes is allowed. Our guests had an excellent stay and visit. This is appropriately priced for a boutique hotel of this caliber. We would highly recommend.
An amazing view with a taste of disgusting
The view is amazing, unfortunately after that the place goes downhill and real fast! We got into our room and the wife started to pour a glass of wine and the glass was covered with lipstick, now we are searching the place like we are staying at motel 6 and found another dirty glass and a box of ritz crackers, everyone likes ritz crackers but not left over from a previous person. So at this point I was given a free bottle of wine, to make up for a disgusting 500$ a room, but upon checkout I was charged for the wine and had to call and have it taken off. Now luckily after 7pm each day I learned they have no one at the front desk, which sadly was better service then the guy working the front desk. The hotel is for sale and hopefully someone buys it with a focus on being a great hotel with a great view and fires every employee and starts over.
Rooms big enough for a family of whales
The rooms are enormous and the views even bigger. Although the rooms are pricey where else can you get 1/8th of your own private cove? The only fly in our ocean ointment was the owners’ penchant for Covid profiteering. Though the restaurant was totally packed both nights, they had no one clean up the room. However, payment was the same but sans service. There are only 8 rooms so make your reservations early to get one on the top (third) floor. Because of the bathtubs on the balcony, this is a romantic experience you’ll never forget
Pictures are better than words
I have never been so torn about a place. I’ll just let my photos speak for themselves. Just to note, my husband and I travel the world and usually stay in high end, five star hotels. The price of this room was in alignment with a Four Seasons 5 star type property. Super important fact! Be sure to only book a 3rd floor room if you want to use the bathtub on the patio. The lower floors are NOT private. I took a bath one night and 6 people saw my bath. VERY uncomfortable and I was so glad I was wearing a bathing suit!!!
