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.

The rooms are quiet and have a sea view. That is the highlight of the place. The rooms are very old and very small. The bathrooms are 60's. They are a little overpriced for what you get. Front desk is nice. Breakfast with room is disappointing. Views and access to beach is excellent.
Lovely place with sea views and pool etc. but someone else’s hairs were on my towels. 😒 Otherwise room was clean and comfortable, no noise from other rooms or from roadside. Free mini breakfast a plus.
