Located on the shores of Yaquina Bay in Newport, Oregon, each of the 60 rooms and suites at the Embarcadero comes with a complimentary view of the bay. This full-service, resort hotel has an onsite restaurant serving all three meals and a lounge, as well as an indoor saltwater pool that kids will love and two outdoor hot tubs for mom and dad. From the resort, you can rent a boat to go crabbing or charter a fishing excursion, and return to clean and cook your catch on the crab cooking stations and BBQs. Many of the rooms offer multiple beds, sleeper sofas, full kitchens, fireplaces and a private balcony looking out over the water. Free parking and coin-operated laundry services are available to guests.

The front desk has the rudest and most unprofessional staff out of any hotel we’ve ever stayed at. The maintenance manager is horrible at his job as well. We’ve had maintenance requests in for months and nobody has touched them even after follow up requests with THE MANAGER himself. It’s very easy to tell that there is very little communication between the employees. Usually when you see a member of the staff around the hotel grounds, they are A) smoking a cigarette B) sitting on their phones or C) sitting in a embarcadero truck. The housekeepers aren’t capable of cleaning water off of glass. They go to clean rooms without a vacuum, mop, or broom and leave said room without any dirty rags. I’m not actually sure what any of the staff does here, but it is not hospitality.
Great Location and a view of the bay. Our room was right on the bay with a deck to enjoy it. The historic bayfront it within walking distance to great restaurants (Local Ocean Seafoods) and bars (Rogue Brewery neighborhood bar). Rooms are good size with everything you need to enjoy your stay. You can save some money with kitchen in each unit as well. We made breakfast each morning and packed a lunch to enjoy on the go.
