“Great stay, great room, great price...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

Had the best time last weekend at the Shearwater Inn. Got the romance package and found a bottle of sparkling wine and chocolates in the room with 2 flutes to take home!! Room had a gas fireplace for nice ambiance and a whirlpool tub in the bath. Great view of the pounding surf and a $40 gift card to use next door at Zyllo's!! But the evening started even better than expected with the Wine Social they have nightly. After trying their 2 selections, a couple of the guests (ourselves included) broke out some bottles that we had brought for the weekend. This really got conversations going. One of the guests turned out to be one of the founders of Oak Knoll wines!! Then it was time to spend some time in the hot tub located outside but shielded from the highway. All this and pet friendly too!!! You can find cheaper accommodations in Lincoln City, but I doubt you will find better value and amenities! We will be back again soon!!

Room Tip: This is a 5 story Inn with all rooms facing the ocean. Higher up gives better views, but there are...

Our stay could not have been more pleasant. Beautiful location on the beach, lovely room, great staff, excellent beds, breakfast in bed. What more could we want? Wine social was a pleasant surprise and opportunity to met other travelers.

My husband and I spent a quiet weekend at the Shearwater for his birthday and could not have been more pleased! The staff was so hospitable, the entire facility welcoming and clean. We enjoyed the breakfast in our room and the wine in the evening. We needed to feel pampered and we did. Thank you so much for a wonderful, much needed rest.

We came to celebrate my husband's birthday and stayed 2 nights/3 days. It was our 2nd time at the Shearwater and it was again pleasurable. The facility is very clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. I only rated the value as average because like every other hotel, the prices get jacked-up for the holidays/weekends, which I hate but it is the retail way. We paid an extra $100 on one of our nights because it fell on a holiday. Otherwise the Shearwater is top-notch! The rooms are lovely and it is run with all the amenities of a 5 star hotel (robes, social hour, breakfast delivered to your room, etc). Although we do not have a dog, I just loved the water bowl out for the pets and a towel bin with fresh towel to wipe off your pet after a walk on the beach. The Shearwater is very attentive to detail and gives every impression of wanting to make their guests comfortable and their stay enjoyable. I would highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: All the rooms have an ocean view so I can't imagine a bad room. We have stay in their suite bot...

We only stayed for one night but really enjoyed our stay, had a room on the top floor and the view was great, just have to look beyond the parking lots. The room was great, loved the tub and the breakfast was good, only thing I can suggest is for the rooms on the top floor to have a real cover on the balcony but everything else was great including the ladies at the front desk

My wife and I recently stayed at the Shearwater in Lincoln City. We stayed on the 5th floor and had a wonderful view of the ocean. Our room had a fireplace and the bed was very comfortable. We also really enjoyed the wine and cheeze social. We visited with another couple from Eugene and had a great time. Danny at the desk was very helpful and made our visit special.

We have lived in Oregon for over 30 years and have stayed at most of the nicer coast hotels. This is by far the best housekeeping staff I have ever seen until you get to the upper 4 or 5 star class. Very, Very clean room. We like to come down every 2 or 3 months and just enjoy a couple of days at the Shearwater. No one here has every been anything but genuinely friendly. We will not stay anywhere else now and look forward to every trip. I agree with other reviewers about the higher rooms being the more attractive choice.
Bob and Rita C.

Room Tip: We like the 2 bedroom for the size and layout
