We love this quaint little themed motel. It's right off the highway (although we never hear road noise) and the rooms are adorable. We stayed in the whaler room this time and it was pretty amazing. Love all the unique decor. It's a smaller room and doesn't have a balcony but it does have a huge bay window to see...

Amazing location, away from the crowds. Charming rooms, very clean and well kept. Beautiful ocean views on an uncrowded beach. We listened to music, watched a couple movies, and sipped wine while watching fishing boats as the sun set. Great price, good company; one of the most memorable places you can stay on the Oregon coast.

There aren't actually too many good beachfront motels in Newport Oregon, most people that want easy beach access stay further north or further south, but Moolack shores is one of the few in Newport. All the rooms have a theme and the property is older but lovingly maintained. The beach access is fantastic and it is a beautiful spot with...

We have been staying at Moolack for years. Always a nice quiet stay. Beautiful ocean views and a quick private beach access. Managers are always friendly and helpful. Only drawback is you have to travel to restaurants.

It's not fancy, but clean, charming, and the people who work there take care of...

We stayed in the hunting room, it was huge; like a small apartment. Sitting on the deck was great and listening to the ocean all night was so restful. I loved the beach and the privacy. We saw whales, which was amazing. It could of used a deep cleaning and dusting, but the memories will always over shadow the dust......

This place is simply amazing! The view of the ocean would be enough to have a really nice location (it looks better than on the pictures, truely unbelievably beautiful!), but the owner went the extra mile to create rooms you won't forget: We slept in the Camelot room and absolutely loved every detail in there (Swords on the wall, crossbows...

We stayed an extra third night in corner unit 4 with the kitchen. This was the "nostalgia" room, with a western theme, including spurs on the wall and a charcoal drawing of John Wayne. The balcony overlooks the beach which is what you wake up to in the morning looking out from the bed. The owner was pleasant the very...
