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.

Our first time visiting Newport and we stayed 5 nights at Embarcadero. While the resort is not new, the rooms are well maintained and clean. Friendly staff. The view from our room was outstanding! The on-site restaurant is currently closed but our room had a full kitchen and we generally make our own meals. We will be back one day!
Beautiful location, but inexperienced staff. Rooms were nice but very old, dirty and outdated. The place would be beautiful if they would put some work into modernizing a bit. My family and I stayed here for a weekend and called prior to our stay to reserve one of the boats for crabbing on a Saturday. We were told that the boats were first come first serve and that they did not take reservations. Ok that’s fine, so we said we would be there at 8AM that Saturday and they agreed. We go in Friday night to get more information on the boats and they said they wouldn’t have boats available because they had already been reserved. We told them we were told that they did not take reservations and they just looked at us confused and told us they couldn’t do anything. Very disappointing as this was the main reason we wanted to stay here. On top of this, we asked for sheets for the beds one morning as the pullouts didn’t have any. They said they would bring them and we left. We got back late that night and no sheets were there. So we had to call again and wait for the sheets when all we wanted to do was go to sleep. The next day we asked if somebody could bring toilet paper since they hadn’t brought any the last time they cleaned. They said they would bring some and never arrived. So again we called, a little annoyed, and they finally brought the toilet paper. I’m not sure if it was just the weekend we were there, but it seems the staff consists of just a bunch of college students with absolutely no service experience. For the price of this place, you’re honestly better off just staying at a Hilton where you can at least expect clean rooms and decent service.
