Historical Traveler Reviews Overleaf Lodge & Spa Yachats
What a find
We stayed at the Overleaf in December. We were blessed with blue skies and sunshine. The view from our second floor room was exceptional. We felt like we could throw a stone and it would land in the ocean. The room was exceptionally clean and well appointed. If we weren't three hours away, we would come up and visit once a month. I highly reccomend this hotel.
We stayed at the Overleaf after my father-in-law's funeral. The manager gave us a lovely 3rd floor, oceanfront room with a gas fireplace. We opened the windows and listened to the waves, slept like babies. The breakfast (included in room rate) was actually very good - granola, a couple of hot dishes, selection of pastries and cereals. We would definitely go back.
Nice people, comfortable hotel
The Overleaf is in a very nice location, right on the ocean and trail 84 for morning walks along the coast. The rooms are comfortable, not that large, firm beds. Try a room with a balcony on the upper floor for a nice place to sit if the weather is iffy. The breakfast is a little lacking for those of us on a low carb diet but is fresh and inviting. I would recommend this hotel.
Great place to stay
It was very relaxing. The ocean was right outside the room crashing against the rocks. A sand beach is close by. Our room was huge with a fireplace and hot tub. It was well worth the money. I wish they had a restaurant, but there was an excellent one just a short walk away. Breakfast was great.
A Gem on the Pacific
What a fantastic find for us thanks to the reviews on this website. Thanks, previous reviewers, you were right-on. This is a fantastic lodge with spacious, comfortable rooms and the most unbelievable ocean views. We loved the trails from the lodge to the beach and to town. The rooms are so comfy with big chairs, ottoman, fireplace, microwave, fridge, etc. etc. etc. We will definitely be back!!
This is the place on the coast
There are enough other reviews praising Overleaf that there's not much to add. Location. Views from private balconies. Spacious rooms, nicely appointed. Attentive staff. One thing we noticed: whether intentionally or not, Overleaf does not seem to attract families with children. That's not a criticism, that's a definitie plus for a place such as this. We were fortunate to have 3 days of fine weather on the coast, but given the often inclement climate this is a great place to be sequestered during storms. No need to pay to go to the sea lion caves. Sea lions, seals and an occasional whale swim right past your view. Beaches are a few miles away. Florence and the sand dunes about 25 miles south.
Beautiful Balcon views!
Our stay last July was one of the most restful vacations we've ever had! Sleeping with the sliding glass doors open and listening to the ocean waves was so peaceful!
Restful and close to the ocean
We were very first guests to stay in the hotel when it opened in 1997, and we have stayed there countless times since. It was wonderful 1997, and is just as wonderful today. The rooms are as clean and new as they were the day the motel opened as the Overleaf is constantly updating.
We travel a lot staying in the best hotels, and there is no place we enjoy more than the Overleaf. And the ocean is right outside your window. There is nothing more relaxing than sleeping with the sounds of the ocean so near. This a reasonalbly priced hotel where you can't go wrong. All rooms are non smoking and no pets, so the scent you get on opening the room door is always fresh. A superior hotel in every way!
Found the Overleaf on a busy Thursday afternoon in August. Felt lucky to get it even though it was $160. Clean, new big room with a window seat, a gas fireplace and just a little character that would be missing if it were a chain. Nice staff, excellent location on top of the rocks with a short walk to the sand beach and direct access to the wide and very cool coastal trail. Glad we didn't stay at the Adobe or whatever it's called just south of here. Would definitely stay here again particularly if the rates were better. But be forewarned: $160 for a place is cheap this time of year in this neck of the woods. We paid $100 for a shack in an RV park 50 miles south of here so this ain't that bad.
The Overleaf Lodge is a beautiful hotel with fantastic ocean views. The Fireside next door is also a wonderful place to stay. We have stayed at both properties several different times. Yachats is a friendly little town situated south of Newport and is a great place to stay. Within 30-40 minutes you can see many tourist attactions, yet still go back to the peace and quiet of the Overleaf. The complimentary breakfast is much more than a simple pastry and coffee. When I last stayed there the selection included; cereal, yogurt, granola, pastries, muffins and a variety of other selections. One nice touch was the coffeemaker in the room with real mugs (not styrofoam cups) to drink from while gazing upon the ocean waves. My entire family loved the attention to detail and friendly staff during our stays. I highly recommend the Overleaf as well as the Fireside to anyone traveling the central Oregon coast.
