The best in newport!!!
excelent view, nice BIG clean rooms with excelent service and hospitality. very friendly and accomidating. excellent value, and location. right on the beach, I went for a walk every morning and loved it. I stay at this shilo location yearly and will continue to do so. great rooms at great rates!
We had a nice stay at this hotel. The staff was very pleasant and brought us additional pillows right away when asked. The view of the ocean from the room was wonderful, and having a microwave and refrigerator in our room was great. The hotel has two indoor pools, one of which is a three-foot wading pool, which our five-year old daughter loved. Only two complaints: The tub could have used a good cleaning, and our room was near the lounge, so the music and base were a little loud as we were going to bed. If you are staying over the weekend, I would request a room away from the lounge to avoid the noise.
"Mediocre-- not what I expected from a Shilo Inn"
I grew up in Oregon and had been fed a steady diet of radio and TV ads extolling the virtues of Shilo Inn and their "affordable excellence." My parents had always told me how much they loved the local chain, but my first trip to a Shilo Inn proved disappointing. My huspand and I spent the last night of our honeymoon at the Shilo Inn in Newport. When we called to book the room, we were told we would have a 2nd floor, ocean view room. When we arrived, just several hours after booking, we were told that we could not have a second floor room. Instead, we were placed in a ho-hum first floor room. Our "view" most mostly of tall SUVs in the adjacent parking spaces, not of the ocean. (The next morning when the traffic cleared out, we could see the ocean, though.) I advise you to request and confirm a 2nd floor room as if your life depends on it. The room was somewhat small, but clean. The afternoon sun pooring in through the large window made the room uncomfortably warm, and the A/C was underpowered to cool the room. In a word, "mediocre."
Generic, if you like Wonderbread, this is for you
The rooms are a bit overpriced for what you get. I should admit I haven't stayed in other hotels in Newport, but I was surprised at the Shilo's spartan rooms. The staff is friendly, and the room was clean, but for the $169 we paid, I expected a bit more than two beds, a microwave and a fridge. It would also be nice to have an electronic key, for security reasons, and a better control of the room temperature than just opening a tiny window and having to ask for a fan. Overall, there must be better options in a town of this size.
Shilo Inn, Newport,Oregon:
rooms very small and spartan, beautiful views from community porch. good beach access, except a lot of stairs, resturants expensive, food average, quiet seaside setting, very friendly staff.
Affortable, comfortable ocean front
Beautiful ocean view of magnificent coastline. The staff was friendly. The reasonable priced for what you get. The view out of the large windows was not very clear for some reason. I don't know if they were weather beaten or just dirty so it gave kind of a blurred view. You had to look out of the smaller windows underneath to get a crisp view. Overall, comfortable. Newport is a great place to visit with lot's to do and see.
Fair for the price, but that's all
Pros=excellent views and location. helpful and friendly staff. clean rooms, albeit circa 1970 style.
Cons=phone rep stated recently remodeled and renovated, but if so, they must have a strange take on what renovation means. the room (admittedly clean) was an ecclectic collection of cheap 25 year old prints, dark laminated fake wood furniture which didn't match from piece to piece, and abhorrently ugly burgendy carpet. restaurant on site seemed run down as well, with furniture from the same time period as the room.
again, for the price (go to orbitz), the stay was fair, and no real complaints. but shilo inn's marketing tag line of "affordable excellence" should be changed to something a little more accurate, say something like just "affordable" period...definitely nothing "excellent" about this property, unless the nicest place you've ever stayed in was a best western.
A wonderful place to stay
What can I say. The views were breath taking. The hotel staff was great. Rooms were nice and comfortable with a fridge and microwave. The only thing I did not like were the flat hard pillows, but the sound of the ocean at night made me forget about them. I woked in Newport for a week. The food is to die for and some of the most beautiful coast line I have ever sceen. I will return again and again and stay with Shilo Resorts.DA, Angel Fire, New Mexico
Affordable ocean view,beach access
The rooms are very nice with all the amenities. There is a resturaunt and lounge with a great ocean view that serves very reasonably priced meals. Great location and close to downtown Newport.
I am Sold On Shilo Inns
I am sold on Shilo Inns! This hotel is beuatiful. The view of the Pacififc Ocean is spectacular and the direct beach access is convenient.

... welcome, as were the extra towels given to us on arrival and the faux log burner in our room. After a breakfast of doughnuts and coffee with the owner's corgis (much like the Queen, one would imagine), we made the most of the oceanfront location and headed to the beach. The sun was shining, the wind was blowing. After a short wander along the sand it was time to jump on the bikes again, just in time for more ...
... on the bus journey were super-steep and there was an air of relief that we were traversing them in a bus. With the rain worsening we opted for a night in a hotel, which turned out to be a great place and a class above the other motels so far. It seems that the cheap range of motels, inns and hotels all fit into the same price bracket but vary enormously in terms of quality. This one was a great find - thank you Wacoma ...
... the rocks not 50 meters away, seemingly posing for photographs. Characters. Eventually, two more joined the fun, with a total of FIVE SEALS sunning themselves and arguing with one another while we silently watched for over an hour. Stands out as one of the best experiences of the trip.
One word for the day: OUTSTANDNG!
... like. I have nearly eaten myself sick. Literally they are on every property and state and federal park out here, in the towns, fence rows, everywhere. The birds do not seem to bother them. There are so many the birds do not have to fight the people for them. No one seems to be picking, except a few tourists. We had deer cross in front of us and others along the road. We came across the Dean Creek Elk viewing area. There was a herd just ...
