“What a View”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

We watched bald eagles, osprey, and hawks from our balcony. Lovely weather with no wind makes for a great Oregon beach stay. The minus tide was perfect for lots of morning tide pools viewing. Walk to Devils Punchbowl, have chowder at Mo's, and enjoy the pool and other resort perks. The units are very different as they are individually owned condos, but many have been remodeled, and offer a different beach experience.

Room Tip: The view costs more, but is worth it!

We had such a great time, walking the beach, going to Flying Dutchman Winery for some delicious wine, and relaxing in the spacious room. I will be back, especially with family or a group! Fast and easy check in, and every person we met was very helpful and pleasant!

The view and location are unbeatable. I was amazed at the price. Room not the biggest in the world, but plenty big with balcony. And king. Top notch facilities. Great pool and jacuzzi. Beautiful landscaping and trails. Resident whales and seals. They have their own rooms. Not really. Good restaurant. Only issue was that ice was far away, but they brought it, no problem. Place is cool.

Room Tip: upgrade to ocean view. 2nd or 3rd.

The location of Inn at Otter Crest is on a private cliff just North of Newport, Oregon. The grounds are so lush and beautiful. The units cascade down the hill, so expect a lot of walking and stair climbing. We never did experience the restaurant, but from the reviews and peak inside, we didn't think we missed anything. Because the weather didn't allow for pool time, we ended up leaving the resort each day to explore the many attractions North and South. The unit was nice and I recommend being prepared with lots of your own food because the nearest store is quite a distance.

Inn at Otter Crest offers a huge variety of units, all with ocean views. Guests are shuttled to and from condos by electric carts. No pets allowed. Pool, sauna, and hot tub with a restaurant. This is the place to have a memorable coastal experience. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Reserve a room early for summer - you will remember this vacation!

I was cautious about booking this place per the reviews and appreciated the "heads up".
I did call to make the reservation and discuss the room options and specifically asked for an updated unit and a view. We had both and loved our "hotel room" option in building A, ocean view, very close to the 90+ steps that take you down to the most awesome tide pools! We usually stay at a much more expensive place along the Oregon Coast but this place was every bit as lovely, had beautiful grounds and amazing tide pools and the price was great. You might just call and discuss your options before booking. We ate in the restaurant, and while they had few options that appealed to us, what we chose was very good. We really appreciated being able to walk over to the restaurant after a long tiring day, enjoy a bottle of wine with our meal and stumble back to our room after. Don't miss the Devils Punchbowl at low tide on your left after descending the steps.

Room Tip: Building A "hotel room" was lovely

We traded into Otter Rock with an RCI exchange. This is the second time we have a spent week here and it doesn't disappoint. We were in the K building, units 252/253. Our unit was a studio unit with a full kitchen, living area, full bath, sleeper sofa and the adjoining unit which we also had was a hotel unit with two queen beds and a full bath. The deck ran the length of both units. We had stormy, wet weather part of the time and temps in the high 80's part of the time. The view cannot be beat. There are very good sun blocking screens on the windows that you can see thru. These are necessary when the temperatures get high as there is no ac. The units are clean, the staff very friendly and the area very relaxing. Only downfall is that you have to park in a lot and are taken to your unit in golf carts. You can walk but if you have any kind of handicap it can be a little taxing. Beautiful grounds. We have stayed here many times and would go back in a heartbeat. Great value when not using an RCI exchange. Be sure to look at the property map and pick at a building closer to the ocean.

Room Tip: Check property map and see where you are in relation to ocean.
