Travel Blogs from Newport
My day started at 5.30am and it involved washing the clothing we had worn the last 24 hrs. As said in my last blog, we got back from the casino about 1.45 and my nights sleep was not good. I woke up at 5.30am smelling smoke from the Casino. I got up, gathered all Jackie and my clothes from yesterday and took them to the laundry to …

Newport is another town you could easily live in. The beach is gorgeous (although rough) and seems to stretch on forever. Rye Beach is the oldest neighborhood established in the 1800's. There are some great restaurants and shopping here, as well as a great little arts community. There is a US Coast Guard Station here and the harbor is quite ...
We left Astoria heading down the coast to Newport. I had my camera camcorder and tripod at the ready.I was going to take wonderful photos and videos of the magnificent Oregon coast. It is a magnificent coastline but try to do the above with trees blocking the view is impossible. We did stop occasionally to take a few shots. We stopped at a Safeway supermarket to buy some milk and something for lunch. they make ...
Had our quickest pack up today and were on the road by 8 o clock. Ben needed to use the Internet which is good news for me as it means we have to buy a hot drink and possibly even something to eat! So far we have been on (fairly) strict rations to save money. The menu has consisted of rice and lentil curry or pasta on alternate days. It's hard to eat enough ...
We were on the road at 10:15 looking for museums in Newport. They all appeared to be closed on Wednesdays. We could not find the entrance to the Pacific Maritime and Heritage Center, so decided to head north on highway 101. Our first stop is back to Yaquina Head Lighthouse so Gene can take some more pictures. The interpretive center is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Shilo Inn Suites Oceanfront Hotel Newport
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.
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.
Pros=excellent views and location. helpful and friendly staff. clean rooms, albeit circa 1970 style.
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.
