We had a great time at Whale Inn. It was prefect for a little get away. It was very clean and the location was awesome. The owners always responded to emails in a timely manner and always answered any questions I had. The first day we couldn't get our door to work. I called the owners and they answered quickly and stayed on the phone with me until the issue was resolved. I will definitely book again through them in the future. Highly recommend.

Sweet Minke #7

★★★★★

We enjoyed our stay at Whale's Inn. It is a cute unit with a microwave, refrig and Kuerig coffee maker, all of which we used. We prefer a regular coffee maker because of the plastic cups from the Kuerig that have to be thrown in to the trash and ultimately, into the ocean! The bed was comfy, the heater worked to take offf the morning chill. We took the end unit farthest from Hwy. 1 and that was nice. A nice throw blanket would've been a nice touch. We usually stay in Airbnb places because of the more personal touches and this was very good for a motel. We would consider staying again.

A True Gem on the Oregon Coast

I have spent many nights in many, different hotel and motels. When spending only a night or two, I am most interested in a comfortable bed, hot shower, and clean linen. The Whale Inn has these, of course,and a whole lot more that makes it stand way above even most "luxury" motels. First, the room is small. It really isn't designed for long stays, especially with more than a couple. For a small room, however, you will find amenities rarely found elsewhere. Not only does the room have a small microwave and mini-refrigerator, it also has a kitchen sink and quality dinner and flatware. The bed was comfortable. It was a full-size, so it was cozy, but since it it was a captains bed, it had six drawer units below. Storage is abundant. The shower was hot and included soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, shave cream, and toothbrushes. The TV was more than basic cable, but included Netflix and Hulu. I have never seen that anywhere. The Whale Inn is unbeatable for the price. We will return.

We enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and pleasant, my only complaint is the pictures online make it look much bigger than it actually is. Other than that definitely would recommend.

We had a great stay at W7- Minke @ Whale Inn! The room was tastefully decorated with a beach theme. The room was very clean and had just about everything you would need to make your stay comfortable, including dinnerware and utensils. We attended a concert at nearby Chinook Winds and this was the perfect little beach getaway after the concert! We will definitely stay here again!

My husband and I were celebrating our one year anniversary and his 30th birthday at the beach and had an amazing stay at the Whale Inn. The room was perfect for a short and sweet getaway. The decor was adorable and made it feel very cozy. Everything was very clean and the host was fantastic. Definitely will stay here again and will recommend to friends!

There is no key for entry to the lodging, so a reminder to the tenants that they should write down the lockbox code and keep it in their wallet or in their vehicle, which is what I did as soon as I saw that there was no physical key provided. It's easy to load all your gear with the entry instructions inside, close the door and forget the entry code.

Manager Response: Generally speaking the codes that we use for the door locks are something that is readily known by the guest that made the booking. It is not a randomly generated number. Sorry you had difficulty with the electronic door lock system. Our intent is greater security by not having lock boxes and keys that get lost, duplicated and not returned.

The room was nicely decorated and thoughtfully appointed with the little amenities that make one feel welcome. The whales and seals were a nice touch, as well! And it helped that we got such a great view of the grey whales feeding in close to the shore, not to mention a couple of c

It’s always a pleasure when your rental choice turns out to be better than expected. It can be tough to find pet friendly places that are nice for people too. The room was cozy, clean and current style! And the town is amazing. LOTS of whales. Highly recommend.

I enjoyed my stay here very much. Cozy & comfortable. Peggy was great when I had trouble with my tv controller and it was replaced immediately. Wonderful customer service. The only negative was that there is no closet nor any hangers in this unit.

Whale Inn in Depoe Bay

★★★★★

Posted on June 14, 2019

We had a great stay in the Whale Inn. The rooms were clean and seemed to be recently renovated. #7 was the furtherst away from Hwy 101, so it was extremely quiet and peaceful. The location couldn’t be better, just blocks from all the shops and restaurants. My only minor criticism was that the bathroom was quite small, and there was no ironing board that I could find for our reservations at the world class Restaurant Beck located a mile south. We will for sure recommend this stay to anyone, and we will be back again for sure. Thank you for the experience. Cheers!

Overall we were very happy with our booking at Whale Inn. The motel was conveniently located within walking distance to everything in Depoe Bay (granted, Depoe Bay is small, but still). The rooms were recently redecorated and were very cute and clean. We will certainly be back later this year.
