We had a 5th floor room with a nice view of the ocean. Our room was very spacious, clean and we loved the fireplace! Also, the bed and pillows were so comfortable! Prices were very reasonable too for a holiday weekend. We will definitely stay again.

We were there 3 nights over Thanksgiving week and even though it rained the whole time we still enjoyed ourselves watching the huge waves during the storms with the fireplace going. A nice breakfast was brought to our room each morning at no extra charge and also a nice wine reception in the lobby each evening. We will be sure... More

Loved everything about this place: great location, clean rooms, kitchen, nice views, dog friendly, has good eats and easy beach access nearby....been here a few times and keep coming back. Happy...with one little exception. The fireplace has never worked correctly in any room. It's mostly for mood, there is another heat source, but this should be addressed as it has... More

you'll enjoy the deck. Not big but sitting is fun. you will enjoy the fireplace on a cold winter night with a bottle of wine or just a glass if you visit the wine social in the lounge area and talk with other guest. This is a DOG friendly hotel, just make sure you clean up. Also have a breakfast... More

I had to share this wonderful hotel in Lincoln City, OR. This hotel is not right on the beach but has a great view of it. The room we stayed in had a fireplace and great view of the ocean. The beach is walking distance from the hotel and the staff were friendly and very helpful. Truly a treasure and... More

We recently returned to Shearwater Inn. It is great value for the money. Rooms are updated and comfortable, there is an evening wine reception, and continental breakfast is delivered to the room. They have thoughtful extras including dog treats, dog towels, and beach blankets. The staff is friendly and helpful. We stayed in a well appointed 2 bedroom, 2 bath... More

We were treated SO AMAZINGLY! Kim, at the front desk, let us know what not to do (never turn your back on the ocean tide), let us know of interesting activities (glass blowing artists encourage 'fairies' to leave glass balls around entrances to the ocean...you find it, you keep it!). The hotel is less than 200 steps to Kyllo's Seafood... More

The room was beautiful, spacious, well appointed and comfortable. I loved the jetted tub and the morning breakfast delivery. The price for a winter stay was average, the view was okay, it was obstructed by the hotel that is in front of the Shearwater Inn. The lights from the other hotel shown into your room at night so you had... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the attention to details and personal touches that made our stay at this small inn quite pleasant. In particular, this is a pet-friendly hotel. Beyond simply allowing your pet, they actually accommodate. Our room was supplied with a doggie basket including dog towels (for cleaning up after a romp on the beach--which you can walk... More
