Located steps from the beach, on the Central Oregon coast, Inn at Nye Beach is for families and lovers. The Newport, Oregon boutique hotel is an ideal luxury escape winter, spring, summer or fall. My Inn at Nye Beach hotel review will give you a first-hand look at what to expect at this pet-friendly inn.
What makes Inn at Nye Beach special?
With 38 rooms, some dog-friendly, both families and couples will enjoy their time in Newport, Oregon. The three-story inn is within walking distance to Nye Beach Historic District, as well as shopping and dining.
If walking on the beach and enjoying a campfire are what you desire on the central Oregon coast, Inn at Nye Beach aims to please. Our November visit brought us excellent storm-watching opportunities and plenty of time to enjoy our cozy room looking out to the Pacific Ocean.
Green initiatives in Newport, Oregon
For those who appreciate environmentally minded hotels, Inn at Nye Beach features solar generated electricity from solar panels. Opened in 2012 as The Inn at Nye Beach, the Newport hotel has had several lives. Formerly known as Viking Cottages, the Inn used recycled wood salvaged from the cottages as a way to repurpose materials.
What amenities are offered at Nye Beach boutique hotel?
The Newport, Oregon boutique hotel offers family-friendly and adult rooms under the same roof, yet in different areas. While we enjoy traveling with our children, we also appreciate adult-only holidays. Sometimes we want to escape to the Oregon coast for some quality alone time. This November visit was a romantic getaway.
Romantic getaway on the coast
We booked a room with a gas fireplace and upgraded to the romance package. For an additional fee, Inn at Nye Beach staff will decorate your room with rose petals on the bed and throughout the room. A long-stemmed rose is also included.
Locally handcrafted chocolates and a lovely bottle of red, white or sparkling wine are waiting in-room. A pair of Inn at Nye Beach champagne flutes or wine glasses are yours to keep. Additionally, luxury-seekers will enjoy cozy terrycloth robes to use during their hotel stay. As an added bonus, a late 2:00 p.m. hotel checkout is included.
If you are traveling with kids or want to impress that special someone, try the Beach Bonfire package. Designed for the “no-experience required” hotel guest, the firewood box is ready to burn and includes a fire starter lighter. Roasting sticks accompany the Oregon-made s’mores kit; ours included whiskey salted caramel marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate bars. An Inn at Nye Beach bag and beach mat round out the beach bonfire package.
After a playful day on the beach, check out the DVD lending library in the lobby and watch a movie in your hotel room.
The year-round inn is the only hotel on the Oregon coast with an outdoor infinity spa looking out to the Pacific Ocean. Open from 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. the infinity pool is open to adults only from 9:00 – 11:00 p.m. Conveniently, a covered shower is available in the spa area. You’ll find beach towels stocked by the infinity hot tub.
Next to the infinity spa, on a sandy area, are several gas firepits, surrounded by wooden chairs for soaking in the ocean views. A grassy area fronts the infinity pool, with more chairs for gathering.
What type of rooms are available at this Nye Beach boutique hotel?
Rooms and suites at the Inn are thoughtfully appointed with luxury linens and reclaimed materials. Reserve a king studio or king deluxe oceanfront suite if this is a special occasion. All rooms include complimentary wifi and flatscreen televisions.
High thread count linens and the gas fireplace kept us warm on our winter visit. The small, private balcony in our third-floor hotel room looked directly out to the ocean.
Our king deluxe suite #328, included a mini fridge with complimentary waters, loose leaf tea from Oregon-based Steven Smith Teamaker and French Press coffee from Portland Roasting Coffee Company. I love that Inn at Nye Beach hotel uses so many Oregon-made brands, including beers, ciders and wines.
The bathroom has a huge walk-in shower with oversize rain shower head that any tall person will appreciate. Bath amenities feature Pharmacopia shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. Bathtub lovers will want to fill up the tub and pour in the complimentary bath salts while taking in the ocean view.
You can walk to the beach with a private access code. I should point out that there are 105 stairs to reach the beach.
