The shell of this property is nice but the guts need an overhaul. We decided to give the Inn at Otter Crest a chance based on previous reviews which indicated this property had some updated rooms. At check in, I voiced concern over being placed in an updated unit. The guest associate informed me “all the rooms we rent have been remodeled.”

As soon as I turned the key, I noticed the dirty carpet, old kitchen floor, peeling wallpaper, stained furniture and etc. Most definitely repairs were needed in this old unit. I phoned the front desk with concern. They assured me. I was in an updated unit (building A 114). Sorry, rigging up a new flat screen television adding a new lamp and couch is hardly a remodel.

Also very unpleasing was the noise from the fabricated dividers that separate the connecting balconies. All night long, the waves of the ocean crashing the land were overtaken by this bang..bang..bang…bang……

I was hoping for much better. The Inn at Otter Crest have made some minor changes, nothing close to a remodel. The Oregon coast offers better resorts for less money. Keep looking!!

Great room and view. The grounds and property are so beautiful. Hotel staff was great and very friendly. Beach had nice tide pools and rocks to explore. Tram was helpful in the heat. Booked to go back in September and can't wait.

Room Tip: Building A has panaramic views but all rooms have good views has they are tiered on different levels...

Great facility in a great setting. Best of all, it is away from busy Hwy. 101. We have stayed here at least three times. Even though the weather varied from dark and stormy to sunny and warm, the Inn delivered a relaxing stay each time.

My family of four recently stayed 2 nights here, we loved it!! Perfect beach, its like your own private beach. My boys (age 5 and 7) loved adventuring around. Prepare to hike!! It didn't bother us at all, but someone with limited walking would have troubles. Lots of stairs!! The room was nice, we had a condo with loft bedroom. The kitchen was updated, the rest seems to be quite old. Regardless, we will be going back again!

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.
