Reviewed 9 September 2013

The Whale Cove Inn was truly one of the best places I've ever been. My wife and usually prefer to discover new places but this is one place we want to return. Beautiful view of the ocean, fantastic comfort in the room, and one of the best chefs in Oregon. If you get the chance to go to the Oregon Coast, here is where you want to stay!

We spontaneously decided to drive down the coast from Seaside on my husband's birthday and called the same day for a room at The Whale Cove Inn. The front desk clerk was very gracious and gave us a 15% discount off of our room. Too good to pass up! We had toured this property last year and vowed we would stay there soon. It was a dream come true!

The lobby is stunning with a fireplace and gorgeous views of the ocean. We were shown to Room 203 which was a stunning suite with every amenity imaginable. The beds are King sized and Tempurpedic, we slept like babies. Soft music was playing during our stay and we enjoyed sipping Moscato in the wonderful hot tub which was gorgeous views of the ocean.

The room also has an ambiance fireplace which we used in the morning and evening and a huge balcony with a hot tub and comfy lounge chairs for relaxing where we enjoyed reading in the morning.

The night of our stay we dined at Restaurant Beck which was incredible. Outstanding food, service, wine list and views. Breakfast is included with your room and is served in the formal dining room. Fresh pasteries, orange juice, coffee and a baked egg dish in a ramekin as well as much fresh fruit as you would like.

Comfy robes, and oooh the bathrooms! Beautiful granite countertops and the most spacious shower we have ever seen. Chocolates on the nightstands and a great flat screen TV. Pure heaven on earth!

We hope to stay here at least once a year in the future and vowed next time we will stay at least 2 nights. This is a truly amazing (and expensive) hotel on the Central Oregon Coast. Staying here was a real treat and we made some beautiful memories. Thank you Whale Cove Inn for everything! :)

Room Tip: We loved Room 203

We were told after we arrived to experience it that there is a lot of fog in August and September, which hinders everyone's view, but you hardly care. Leave windows open at night...and go to sleep to the quiet rhythm of surf. "Continental" breakfast" is a misnomer; it is a great assortment of quiches and fresh fruits and pastries. There are great day trips to the north and south, but Beck's on the premises is a special restaurant at the end of the day!.

Room Tip: The suites overlook Whale Cove off the Pacific Ocean. Those on second floor have the best view, but...

Fantastic third floor room(elevator accessible) with a view of Whale Cove and the ocean. The room was like having one's own upscale mini condo with all the amenities and none of the responsibilities. Beautifully appointed. Restaurant Beck, in the Inn, was outstanding. Well prepared, beautifully plated food that was innovative, had multiple flavors, yet was not fussy. Perfect and relaxing. The whole experience made our special celebration that much more special.

This is our second visit and it was pure magic. Our suite was like being in Heaven. The most magnificent view we have encountered from any hotel we have stayed at. We are world travelers and that says a lot. The managers Sarah and Carole could not do enough for us. They are charming, helpful and most informed about the surrounding area giving us good tips where to go.
Very disappointing was the service at breakfast and not a good breakfast at all! The Beck Restaurant which is in the Inn was not good either. The food is very expensive..... menu very limited and the portions are small. We had to go to restaurants in the neighborhood eventually which seemed such a pity! Nevertheless, we will return as it is a most gorgeous spot on our beautiful planet ! We hope next time, the breakfast will have improved and Restaurant Beck will have to improve.......This is constructive criticism. Thanks again, Sarah and Carole.

Room Tip: Every room is fabulous! All rooms and suites face the ocean. There is no fitness center or swimming...

This is a fabulous small luxury inn, beautiful spacious room and appointments, and a wonderful double-sink bathroom. Couldn't ask for more. View from room and deck, and lovely hot tub, all amazing. Can't wait to return.
