... lava flow. At its ends are large rock stacks, which house massive gull and mure colonies. The lower rocks are sunning spots for harbor seals. It's beach is made up of cobbles of various sizes, volcanic rocks rounded by centuries of wave action. When a big wave comes in you can hear the rocks shaking. It sounds like applause for every wave and that could be what its Creator intended. The beach is surrounded by 100 foot high rock walls. A large hill sits atop ...
... due. The tent is surrounded by rain forests with huge leaves and hills covered in tall Sitka spruces. There are streams of water all around, but they are often obscured by vaulted ceilings of ferns. I like camping here because it's a different world and nothing like the deserts we crossed to get here. After setting up camp, with some difficulty, we made our way up the Otter Crest Loop, a scenic six mile drive to Depoe Bay. At Otter Rock, next to a ...
We moved the short distance here this morning, got a nice pull-thru site with full hookups, and Zach and I took off to walk on the beach after lunch.
Despite it being a cool and windy day, we thoroughly enjoyed sitting and watching the waves, and walking through the surf, taking pictures, watching the kites being flown by others on the beach and talking. So glad we moved here for the day!
As we headed out of Portland the weather began to look better. After a couple of hours we hit Lincoln City and found the coast and beautiful beaches with fairly big seas. We also found some outlet shops and had a bit of a splurge. Twenty t shirts and 40 pairs of socks later we were back in the car and looking for a lunch stop.
Depoe Bay was quickly found and the huge juicy ...
... joint was just down the road, where we could see crab pots boiling out front and get great seafood inside. We took the bait. We went to the South Beach Seafood joint and gorged ourselves on a variety of deep fried seafood. The scallops were my favorite, but the shrimp and onion rings were tasty too.
It would have been fun to explore more of the beach after supper, but it was just too foggy. Kind of like what I remember in Maine. ...

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.
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!
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.
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.
