TravelPod Member ReviewsElizabeth Street Inn Newport
We were able to bargain for a good price. The hotel is in a great location with all rooms ocean view. Good breakfast... well, better than a doughnut and coffee.... with smoked salmon chowder served at 5PM and bedtime cookies at 8. Not sure what that was about but they were tasty!. Rooms big, small microwave, clean.

Historical Traveler Reviews Elizabeth Street Inn Newport
'eh. kinda sucked really
Thought the reviews here about the (lack of) service might be just a few bad experiences, but nope...the service really does lack. Not friendly, not helpful, just not fun. The rooms have a nice corporate, airport hotel room feel and a price to match. Heck, I'm complaining about the price and I even had $220 in free scripts. Heh.
Basically, we came in the middle of winter (way off season), no one was there, and when I mentioned...how much for an upgraded room...I got the full price quote. Oh well, guess they would rather blow an extra $140 than get a definate $50 to $100 extra with no effort what so ever.
Really not a big deal, but just imagine what responses one might get if someone had a legimate complaint.
Go elsewhere. If I were you.
Always a great stay
after having an absolutly terrible stay at the shilo inn (just next door to the elizebeth) my husband and i desided that our next stay we would stay at the elizebeth inn. every visit there has been exceptionally great. the rooms are spacious, love the balconies!! the free breakfast is great. last time we went there was construction, but the staff was all helpful!! a great thing i just love, the pool room looks over the ocean! i thought that to be a great plus. a minus?? you have to walk through the parking garage to get to it, but it is worth it every time! and a suggestion, if you miss breakfast, the apple peddler is awsome!
Nice location, otherwise just OK
The Elizabeth St Inn has a beachfront location is close enough to walk to the interesting community of Nye Beach. I am pretty sure all of the rooms look out onto the ocean. Otherwise, it's quite average. The room lacked AC and the ventilation offered by the single sliding door onto the balcony wasn't really adequate in what I understand was a fairly hot time for OR (last summer). Room was spacious but far from luxurious and the bed was below average. You could do worse but it's nothing special.
Wouldn't stay there again
There was a high school on a trip also staying there while we were there. The management did nothing to control the kids. We asked to be placed away from them and the front counter manager told us we were asigned our room # that morning and nothing could be changed. That was a lame excuse. We ended up right next to several rooms of kids and they were running up and down the halls and leaving their doors open. We asked for more pillows and were told that they were all given out to the kids. The temperature controls in the room are difficult to figure out. The rooms were just okay. I have stayed at several places in Newport and this place had the rude and inexperienced help and made us feel as if it was our priveledge to stay there. I will go back to the Hallmark. The rooms are great and the service is unbeatable.
Didn't love the elizabeht inn
I found the motel very mediocre but the worst part was the terrible beds and hard flat pillows. I was so glad to leave. It sounds much more romantic on the web than in person.
Returning to stay there again
The staff was very help full and gave me a better rate when I show them I was there on Business. The only two negitives that I can see is ther is only one elevator so don't be in a hurry there are five floors. Also in there advertisement my impression that they only excepted Kid twelve and older and there were younger kids there running up and down the halls at times. So if you want less of this type of distrubance then it need to be better controlled. Other wise I an going back and staying there for another three days for another business conference. All room have great view of the ocean.
Nice, but a little expensive.
Very nice. Beach access not very good.Go early for continental breakfast...we were late and missed out.
Pretty good place by the sea
Right on the ocean with great views. The beach is fantastic and you can literally walk for miles and miles. It is a fair haul down to the beach (or more correctly a fair haul up from the beach) either by a paved path half a block north or steps half a block south. For many people the gas fireplace is a bonus but I found the pilot light still gives off a fair bit of heat and the room was a bit stuffy unless the balcony door was open. Since you are right on the ocean there is a fair bit of wave noise. Other than this minor quibble, the place was great!
Employee`s were untrained,and rude.
While the room was very nice....... we were very put off by the attitudes of the employee`s. One girl (about 18, dark hair...Gabriel I think her name was) had absolutely no answers to anything we asked her, and spent more time flirting with the guys working on the remodeling of the Hotel than doing her job. Another older lady (reddish hair) was very rude. My wife and I asked her what time the low tide was. Her response was, "How should I know, why don`t you look in the phone book and find out." When we were checking out, we asked to speak to the manager. When she came to the front desk we told her of the problems we had with the staff. She didn`t seem to really care, and her attitude told us very plainly that nothing we said really mattered to her. When paying 119 dollars a night for a room. I expect the staff to at least be polite, and helpfull. While I did very much like the room, and the view. I will be finding another hotel to stay at the next time I am in Newport. And would recommend anyone reading this, to do the same.
Land, sea, fire and air
Our recent stay at the Elizabeth Inn couldn't have been nicer. Being able to have fresh air in the room was a wonderful treat. (Who needs an air conditioner when you have Pacific breezes floating through the window?) The spacious room was clean, the view terrific! Everyone has a view of the Pacific Ocean, the wide beach, the sunrises and sunsets, and the lighthouse in the distance. Who could ask for more? A little chilly? Turn on the gas fireplace for a few minutes to heat up. How great is that? Acutally, if I were to add two critical remarks, I felt the bath room was a bit small and the tub needed some handles for safety, so one doesn't feel unsafe. Other than that, it was a lovely place. I also felt one of the receptionists was a bit curt...but hey, everyone has a lousy day every now and then. Would recommend as the best place to stay on the beach in Newport.

We had a couple of weeks in Seaside, Oregon that included Labor Day weekend. Always good good weather at Seaside and we do a lot of biking there, going around town. Did make it up to Astoria for the Farmers Market, so fun to look and see all the goodies from peoples gardens, crafts and flowers.
We arrived here in Newport a week and ...
... thing that Bud and I both found odd, the fir trees on the mountain are planted so closely together that they appear to blur and almost vibrate as you drive by....I don't know why, we couldn't explain it...and it was early so, no, we had not been drinking. The ascent was gradual with views of the gray-tan mud splayed lahars and the 120 foot gullies that running water cut through the layers of mud and ash. Long before we reached the Johnston Observatory, ...
... own policies. Ah, but I would walk away a victor: you're allowed to pick blackberries on public land in Oregon, up to one gallon per person per day. I love blackberries. My mom was unfazed when I told her we needed to make up for the $5 parking in blackberries, as she pointed ...
... rely on places in town tomorrow to plan the next leg of our trip. There is a computer in the clubhouse we can use for 20 minute sessions. Halloween tonight, but I think we are safe from 'trick or treaters' here - I hope. Looking forward to doing a load of laundry tomorrow. No laundry in unit, but there is one at the club house. Weather forecast is for a fine day tomorrow, which is great as it is our only full day ...
