My husband and I stayed at the Inn of Spanish Head for two nights, for a little get-a-way at the Oregon Coast. We had passed this hotel many times while driving on Hwy 101 and always wanted to stay here.
Unfortunately, this hotel did not meet our expectations at all, especially considering the cost at over $200 per night. The hotel claims that all rooms have an ocean view, however we were assigned a room on the ground floor that had a limited view only of the ocean, due to a low wall in front of the ground floor walkway outside. This was compounded by the fact that since there was a walkway outside, we could not leave our drapes open to see the view unless we wanted people to walk by and stare into our room. And believe me, they did stare! If our drapes were open even briefly, people would slow down just to look into our room. Really, we are not that interesting.
The worst part of the ground floor situation was revealed at night - there were no openable windows in our room except for the sliding glass door onto the outside walkway, which did have a screen but also presented a security risk as anyone could easily enter our room through the screen door (which had no working lock). We tried running the air conditioner at night, even though we prefer the fresh air, and of course it was like listening to a jet engine all night long.
After the first night, after housekeeping came through, we found that not all of our dirty towels were replaced, and the coffee service was not replenished either (we were staying two days, had only been given a one day's supply). We had to call the front desk to get our supplies replenished.
The rooms appear to have been remodeled sometime fairly recently, and the kitchen and bath fixtures were all very nice, but the poor condition of the windows/heating & ventilation unfortunately outweighed the improvements they had made.
We did let the hotel know about the problems, and contacted them after our stay also, but have received no reply back.
The one bright spot was the restaurant in the hotel, on the top floor. We had lunch and dinner there and the view from the restaurant was spectacular, the food was great and the wait staff was excellent.
I would recommend you skip a stay at the Inn at Spanish Head, but definitely enjoy a lunch or dinner while in Lincoln City.
