The Whaler has one of the best locations in the Nye Beach area of Newport, Oregon. Kids will absolutely love Coast Park, the playground paradise that sits right next door to the hotel. The park features swings, climbing structures, a pond, a pirate ship, and one of the longest tube slides we’ve ever seen on a playground. You might have to remind your kids that there’s an equally exciting beach there as well, directly across the street from The Whaler!
Parents will love the easy access to the shops and restaurants of Nye Beach, many of which are mere minutes from the hotel.
Every room here boasts an ocean view from a private balcony. If you’re looking for something for a larger family, The Whaler manages several nearby vacation homes, Other amenities include free Wi-Fi; in-room refrigerators and microwaves; free breakfast; an indoor pool; spa; laundry facilities; and free popcorn at night.

Excellent view, great rooms, super friendly staff. We've stayed here many times and love the location and the fact that you can walk almost every where we want to go (restaurants, stores, entertainment). Cozy rooms, we always get a room with a fireplace and siting on the outside porch watching the ocean is so peaceful, romantic and basically wonderful!

We stayed in a Jr. suite with two beds & a pull out sleeper bed. The beds seemed very narrow for queen beds, and the mattress on the sleeper bed was worn out. The rooms are clean, (freshly painted) and updated. The pool & spa are located in a separate building across from the lobby. They are also very clean and nice. The location is great. It is within walking distance of restaurants & the events center. The road in front of the hotel was busy on Friday evening in early November. However it is quiet during the night. Overall it is a good value.
