“Nice clean motel in quiet location”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

This is a very nice place with very cute and tidy rooms. Our room was a bit small and did not have any furniture with drawers to put things away. But the place is extremely clean and very charming. You have to walk about half a block to get to the beach access.

My girlfriend and I got one of the smaller rooms. Each unit has something a little different from the next, so if you stay here multiple times, you'll get unique experiences. Some do have indoor spas. Ours didn't but we didn't mind. I have had one of the larger rooms and it was excellent. The one was got this time was small but space well used, it had beautiful wood plank walls and stain glass windows that in the day and the night looked amazing. It was very quiet, day or night. The only slight downfalls was the TV was way up high and it was a 19" or so TV, so from the bed it was quite far away, and since it was a TV with a built in DVD, the DVD was a stretch to get to. Also, the shower, though really nice, was quite compact and being tall, required a bit of maneuvering to get under the shower head. It would take a real "nothing is ever right" complainer to hold anything against these accomidations. And one room is only a fraction of the whole place. Still, excellent all around room and motel to stay in.

Room Tip: Ask about all the different amenities before deciding on a room. Each room is a little different. An...

My family and I stayed at this motel last month while on a road trip along the Oregon coast. I was hesitant to book it at first because I wanted to make sure it was a nice, safe, clean place. After reading the reviews, I decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did!!

First of all, the price was great. Hotels in Lincoln City were so expensive. And, hard to find for a family of six. We booked the Gathering Place at a great price. The motel itself is so cute. When we were there, the owners were actually setting up for a family reunion so half the parking lot was blocked off and set up with tents, chairs, heaters, etc, including the entrance to our room. Even though everyone was friendly, it felt a bit strange walking through their party area to get to our room which was in the back, but other than that, we had a great stay.

The Gathering Place has one large bathroom, a kitchen area with full size fridge, and a microwave. There is a living room, and two bedrooms. One bedroom has two beds, the other just one bed. Perfect for our family of two adults and four kids.

The location was nice. Not far from the casino, and only about a block away from beach access. Easily walkable if the weather is nice. Unfortunately, when we were there it was windy, very cold and raining.
Check in was easy. There isn't a pool, but for one night, it didn't matter. Also, I do wish there was more than one t.v. in the Gathering Place. I realize that while you are in Lincoln City you should be out and about enjoying the area, but since the weather was so bad while we were there, we were cooped up in our room, and with only one t.v. for a large group, it wasn't the best. A second tv in one of the bedrooms would have been nice. Just a thought.

I'm not sure if I'll ever make it back to the Lincoln City area, but if I do, I have no doubt this is where I'll be staying. And, I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

Strongly Reccomend Whistling Winds! Seriously, what's not to like?
It's private. It's quiet. Every room is somewhat different.
We've stayed here just the two of us and and with another couple in one of the bigger rooms.
The decor is nice and the rooms are always CLEAN & TIDY.
The smokers area outside is very accomodating for those that indulge. There are lots of chairs and and a big awning cover....and a heater....and a bbq. Jeeze, even the smoking area is NEAT & TIDY.
These folks are serious about keeping their place lookin GOOD!

The staff has always been very pleasant and nice, and we've always been made to feel very welcome.
Whistling winds is with in walking distance, (a nice jaunt) of the casino and really close to "MIST restaurant/lounge".

The prices are very reasonable....especially in off season.

Give Whistling Winds a try.....you'll be glad you did. :-)

Rented the "Gamblers Cottage" for 2 nights during the week of the 4th of July. Very cute! Knotty pine wood everywhere! Fully equipped kitchen and separate living room. It's a small apartment with lots of charm. Two people could be comfortable here for any length of stay. We really appreciated all the shelves in both the bathroom and bedroom. And the hooks! Most of the time when you stay in a hotel there are no hooks for towels and clothing. There were hooks in every room in this cute place. It is right across the street from the beach. You can walk one block in either direction for beach access. It's also very quiet. Comfy beds too! We will be staying here on future trips to Lincoln City.

Check-in was very easy and the staff was friendly. The room was perfectly sized with a nice bathroom, a comfortable large bed, there was flat screen tv and last but not least a large jacuzzi. The room had definite charm with beautiful wood work and stained glass windows. The motel itself was quiet and relaxing, perfect for a beach getaway. Beach access was also just a short walk down the road. I would highly recommend this motel, it had everything I was looking for and I will definitely be going back.
