It wasn't hard to find the Herman Melville room. It had a brass knocker of a whale on the door. Just a bit of whimsy for this four-story old hotel on the doorstep of the Pacific. We enjoyed our stay immensely. Didn't miss the TV or Internet. Took long walks on historic Nye Beach instead. A handful of restaurants and shops are close by. The hotel staff was helpful and courteous and we enjoyed our communal dining experience. Peace and quiet are the mantra here. The cats are so into it they hardly move. Nothing better than sitting in the library with an ocean view. Book early. We stayed in late July and the weather was unseasonably cool. But we didn't mind, This hotel is a safe harbor in any storm.
