“Friendly staff, comfortable and quiet room”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Harbor Lights Inn is a small inn overlooking the harbor. We had a warm welcome and were given a tour of the inn. Our room was comfortable and quiet. We settled in and sat outside on the Adirondack chairs, enjoying the late afternoon. There is a large refrigerator where guests can put food. The dining room overlooks the harbor. Dinner was not included in the price of our room, but we had dinner at the inn, had the delicious beef brisket and ribs. We both had the home made baked beans and potato salad, which were tasty and well prepared. For breakfast we had the ham and cheese omelet and frittata, both were very good. Coffee is ready at 6am and breakfast is at 8:30. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

The Harbor Lights Inn is located right on the harbor in Depoe Bay. There were even seals swimming in the harbor, and the Inn is walking distance to the shops and restaurants. Nice comfortable rooms throughout the building. Good breakfast, but it needed more fruit and muffins. It was nice to sit on the balcony and relax.

Room Tip: Be advised that the fishing boats are noisy in the morning outside the building.

This quaint little Inn has what you want as a traveller as it is set in a quiet little harbour away from the main road. The hosts Bob and Beni made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Bob gave us a tour of the establishment and room. The room had binocular to view the boats in the harbour and sea life. The meals were delightful. This is a must see place to stay and I will look forward to our next stay here.

We found Harbor Lights on an Amazon Local deal. We got 2 nights, a bottle of wine, and a $10 dinner credit at the in house restaurant. Harbor Lights is a nice combination of B&B and small Inn. Our room had a King size bed, wood burning fireplace, private bath sherry and chocolates plus a great balcony overlooking the small harbor. It was updated and very clean, and oh so relaxing.

We were late checking in because of 2 huge back ups and everything was just as they told us when we called to let them know. Each morning you get a full breakfast with an entrée, fruit, and a buffet with bread to toast with yummy jams, great coffee and orange juice. Perfect for starting your day. They have a really comfortable gathering room with a library of books and DVDs, and games. The staff are friendly and you feel so well looked after. They have very quiet unobtrusive pets to enjoy (or not) a small dog and cat. The Inn is on the Inner harbor, so you aren't on 101 and have this great view of the bridge and marina. It was fun to spend time on the balcony and watch the comings and goings. The first morning while I was in the shower my husband even go photos of an eagle.

We had dinner the first night at the Sea Hag, which was very good, and the second night we had dinner at the Inn's own Bistro. Let me tell you, this is a place to come even when you aren't staying there. Fantastic Food! (I reviewed both restaurants too). I had the best BBQ pulled pork and ribs I have ever had. totally amazing! Makes me hungry to think about it. Service was wonderful too. You can even eat out on the deck! They have a small lounge too. In the lounge end of the dining room is a huge mural of the inner harbor as seen from the Inn. Amazing!

We will be recommending this Inn to family and friends. Pure bliss!

My husband and I were able to get away to the coast for one night and chose to stay at the Harbor Lights Inn at Depoe Bay. We were so pleasantly surprised we are planning some way of coming back but staying for more than one night. The hotel is located behind the main street, so noise from the street is non-existent. All of the rooms face onto a beautiful little harbor, and just beyond that is the open ocean. It took us only 10 minutes easy strolling to get to the main street that fronts the ocean.
When we arrived, the reception was very friendly from everybody working there. We were showed around so we knew all that was available (books, DVDs, a fridge, etc.) and then in our room was a log for a fire, sherry if we wanted and a beautiful view with a balcony out to the harbor.
After a nice walk to stretch our legs, we decided to eat at the hotel. We were not disappointed. They had just smoked some ribs and we mixed that with a Cobb salad that was fresh and delicious. They accommodated my dietary restrictions without batting an eye and we left very satisfied.
Breakfast the next day (included in the price of the room) was an option of ham and cheese or bacon and cheese omelete along with self-serve juice, good coffee, toast, etc. We could not have been happier with what we were provided.
Bottom line is that it was very clean, hospitable and quiet. Just right for us.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor and it was very quiet. We did not have people next to us, so I'm not s...

This is the second year we have spent a week at Harbor Lights.
The staff is fantastic and so is the food.
If your fishing with Dockside Charters, your room is just a few steps from the boat. Gotta love that!

We had a great getaway in Depoe Bay. We stayed at the harbor Lights Inn, which provided a friendly warm atmosphere. Bob was very helpful and accommodating. We ate at the restaurant and had a great meal, much better that the other restaurants in the area.
