“What a marvelous place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2011

Our suite was huge and beautifully appointed. The shower is beyond description - streams of water from every direction. The grounds from our top floor view are so well done. Now add the gorgeous water, rocks and beach of Whale Cove. The morning continental offering is attended by the most lovely fellow who sees to every need!

We found the hotel to be quite wonderful. The staff- Sarah, Danielle, and Ahsley were outstanding and extremely helpful. There were 4 of us and the other coulple did not care for the restaurant Beck at all and would not go back. We would have given it another try though. the restaurants in town that we found to be the best were Sharks and Saffron Salmon. There is also a great breakfast spot called La Maison. We did not like the fact the hotel was unattendended by staff at night. The view of the cove is spectacular with views of eagles and wonderful playful seals. Best viewed if you can get down to the point. That and the rooms make it worth the money you will pay. Again the staff makes you feel so welcome and comfortable and will assist you with any need you might have. Folks from Colorado and New England.

Our first trip to the Oregon coast was made that much more incredible because of our stay at The Whale Cove. The view from our room of the cove and ocean was awesome. Our suite was well appointed, the bed was fantastic and the whirlpool on the deck was amazing. The breakfast was billed as "continental", but the quality and selection made it very special. The restaurant in the evening offered a 5,7 or 9 course wine paired meal. Make sure to take advantage of that as an option one evening, you will really be pleaced.

We rented out the entire facility for one evening for a Board Retreat and the experience was superb! Sarah did a wonderful job in catering to our needs and special requests. Her level of service and attention to detail was spectacular. The stunning view combined with first rate service and amenities was perfect for our group. Our dinner at Restuarant Beck was delicious. Our guests declared that the innovative, fresh food was complemented by excellent service from Stormee, Kellly and Penelope. Our guests were delighted to meet Justin and to have him explain some of his secrets used in preparing our sampler dinner. Just when you thought dinner could not get any better, we spotted several whales spouting from our dining window and then finished our tasty dessert while watching a stunning Oregon Coast sunset.

Relaxing on the balcony jacuzzi while watching the stars overhead was a perfect way to finish a beautiful day on the Oregon Coast at The Whale Cove Inn.

The Whale Cove Inn is that rarity on the Oregon Coast: luxurious but understated. Calm and delightful, not overstuffed. The rooms (suites really) are enormous -- bedroom, living area, bathroom, deck. Lots of room to spread out and relax. And the views of Whale Cove and the ocean are first class.
Restaurant Beck, which is independent of the Inn but located inside it, is also great. It is a true gourmet experience, not a typical coast-style chowder and grilled seafood place (although those can be wonderful too, of course). This is more for that special occasion or pamper yourselves meal.
My only mild negative is that I thought the breakfast could have been a bit better -- but it was good, and perhaps it just suffered in comparison to the Beck dinner.
Overall, we loved it at Whale Cove Inn, and we can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: The regular suites are all the same as far as we know. The third floor ceilingsmight be higher, tho...

The locations is fabulous. The accomodations are were the absolute best and most luxurious that we have ever experienced. The view on to the cove and ocean from our balcony was alone worth the price of admission. And then to have the whirlpool right there also was beyond belief. Sarah at the front desk made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in. The rooms and public areas were decorated in fine style. The (included) breakfast was wonderful. We would not hesitate to stay at Whale Cove Inn again.
