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.

I very nice place to stay; easy access to the beach and moments away from shopping. Quiet, clean, well maintained property. Only shortcomings were no microwave in the room and no air conditioning; which is not uncommon for beach-side hotels
Good location. Quiet and right on the sea so lovely view. Eat at Georgie’s close by. Nice beach walk.
Explore dockside area and eat at MOs. Be prepared for changeable weather. Ask for a top floor room
