"Mediocre-- not what I expected from a Shilo Inn" A review of Shilo Inn Suites Oceanfront Hotel
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."
