Starfish Manor OCEANFRONT Hotel
Travel Blogs from Lincoln City
... an original resort area from the early 20th century. Quite quaint. Think we have seen al we need to see now at Newport. Toured the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse which was only used for 3 years from 1871 as it was built in a poor position. A few changes to our itinerary necessary for the next couple of days due to inclement weather. Heading south rather than east to Klamath Falls, we aren't carrying snow chains, and the weather doesn't look good there. Two days of driving to get to ...
... for a spray jacket for the wet weather.. Nothing particularly cheap, so will see how we go. As this is the first place we have had a full kitchen, we went to Safeway ( got a reward card to take advantage of the specials) and stocked up for the next couple of days. We can actually eat in tonight for a change, and that is good because the weather is a bit dreary. Unfortunately there is no free wifi here, so will ...
... very hot brakes. Only saw a couple of other RV's but not one commercial truck. Shortly after went through the lowest spot in North America - 200 ft below sea level. Over 8,000 feet to minus 200 ft in 15 miles. After we got to the top on the other side (8000+ ft) the descent was spread out over a whole state - much more respectable! Stopped in the outskirts of Reno for a night, had a beautiful drive to Mt Shasta through towering forests and ...
... Mountains surround the cities and beaches with deep green forests edging the sand. Stunning. This drive rivals Big Sur (California) and Cape Breton (Nova Scotia), two of this continents best drives. We look forward to the next few days discovering all the variations in scenery
Our original plan included a day at one of the beaches. As remarkable as this coastline is, we have much to see in this country and I have learned over the past months ...
... beach below us appears. This beach looks like no one has ever stepped foot on the sand. The beach wasn't at first easy to see as we were hiking into high winds with fog rolling over the near mountain.
We continued on up the mountain and found 13 elk within 50 feet on a rolling hill next to our trail. We had yet to see elk real close this trip and to see them with the view of the beach ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Starfish Manor OCEANFRONT Hotel Lincoln City
INCREDIBLE PLACE FOR ROMANCE
This hotel was one of, if not THE, most romantic place i have ever stayed at on the oregon Coast. Small, Quiet, and VERY romantic. There wasnt a thing i disliked about the stay. The bed was the most comfortable bed i have EVER slept in in a hotel, and they are outfited with the highest quality linens. I would HIGHLY recommend this place to stay for any kind of ramance, (not exactly a place to take the kids), but great for a getaway with the one you love. The 2 person Jacuzzi tub over looking the ocean with a fireplace, and Rose petals scatters around the tub and bed was a VERY nice touch.
Thanks for a WONDERFUL weekend

Enjoyed our stay very much. Was there for a few days and thought the room was very high end. The room was a good size with a canopy bed and a jacuzzi overlooking the ocean. There was a two head shower. Very romantic. I intend to stay either at the starfish or one of its other properties again. It would not be a mistake for anyone looking for a quiet get away to stay at the starfish manor. Take my word for it.
A nice relaxing stay
We enjoyed our stay at the Starfish Manor. The extras like rose petals, robes, dishes in the kitchen, and good smelling soap were nice. The whirlpool tub was nice and what a view, if you do nothing but sit on the balcony and watch the ocean you will be glad you came. The desk staff were very friendly and helpful too. I have to say though that the owners need to do alittle fixing of things the railing on the balcony was loose and the marks on the wall not so nice, we also had some trouble with the heat, it was very warm in our room, All in all it's a nice place to stay just keep your expections down to earth and I think you'll have a nice time here.
My all-time favorite place at the beach
We just love the Starfish Manor. I love the hot tub and grand view and my husband loves the grill on the balcony and the close access to the beach. The Starfish is a great place for either a romantic getaway or just retreat for the soul. We have been coming to the Starfish almost ever since it opened. I started it by finding it for my annual "me" retreat. After I discovered the Starfish on my retreat I had to bring my husband for our anniversay and have been coming back every since. It is very elegant and comfortable.
This spring I brought my daughter and future daughter-in-law for a bonding experience. Even my daughter, who has "high-class" tastes, likes the Starfish.
We loved our stay @ the Starfish Manor
My husband and I stayed at the Starfish Manor for a few nights while our kids were at summer camp last summer. We are very particular about were we stay, and Starfish Manor met all our fussy needs. We figure, if we are going to spend time away from our nice and cozy home, we need to be well cared for, and we were. I also loved the décor of the rooms and the view from the balcony was incredible! I definitely would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Exellent! We'll be back!
We stayed in Lincoln City for presidents weekend. Our first nite was in a hotle right by the highway and it was a huge disappointment. We decided to take a chance and see what else was available and stoped into Starfish Manor. great desk staff helped us out and had a room available that they said was older and '70's decor. We loved it. Excellent view and very private. Accommodations were great. very comfortable and it rained all weekend so we spent lots of time there!
We'll be back!
Loved Starfish Manor Hotel
Our room was all we hoped for and more! We had a jacuzzi suite with a fireplace (glass front could use a cleaning inside). The bed was a pillowtop and very comfortable. We had a view of the water from the bed, jacuzzi, and couch + sliding glass doors to a small patio.
Employees were friendly and helpful! We highly recommend staying here for a romantic getaway!
Romance with Pizazz!!
This was the MOST fantastic place to spend a romantic weekend. We celebrated our 28th Wedding Anniversary and made excellent use of our IN ROOM Jacuzzi tub and fireplace. The Decor was romantic and relaxing. Great service!! No one bothering you with vaccums unless requested!! Would go back in a heartbeat!! The view from the balcony was perfect!! And the BBQ was a big hit as well!
A peaceful getaway
Looking for a place to stay without hearing the stomping of little feet over your head? Want a quiet retreat not far from the main strip? The Starfish Manor is the place for you! No children under 12 are allowed, so it's perfect for young and older couples. It's a short drive to the center of Lincoln City, yet is far enough off the road to seem secluded. The staff is wonderful, ready to fulfil any need you might have. This is truly a quality hotel; I can't wait to stay again!
Clean, quality, romantic & quiet
My boyfriend & I stayed there for our anniversary & were so impressed by the room. It had high quality bed, sheets, swade couch, granite counter tops. The jet tub for two is right in front of the window over looking the beach! When we got there, there were rose petals on the bed & in the tub! There is a fire place & a balcony with a BBQ as well. Two headed shower in the bathroom. The staff is great, view is perfect & the place is well worth the price! (No children or pets are allowed & that is why it's so quiet & nice!)
