Privately owned single level hotel. Oceanfront view, sits above beach but has very sturdy stairs to get to the beach,about 15 or less, no problem. Owners were very nice and owners daughter was super nice. Discussed other properties owned and rentable. Beds need upgrade. They are okay but are getting close to that point of needing replaced. Also a couple of the white towels had marks on them which always makes a person wonder if it has been washed or not.
Friendly and helpful staff. Nice air flow with windows open. Bedding and pillows smelled so I used my own bedding. No ice machine. Handle locks only on room doors. My toilet took several flushes to work.
Very clean, nice lawn in the back leading down to the beach. Beautiful and un-crowded beach. Pleasant staff. Rooms are very small and smell not bad but old is the only way to describe it. Would not stay long term, ok for a night or two.

Located on a great shallow sand beach with easy stair access.
Right back access to beach staff quietness rooms
Quiet I did not realize that the motel was SO old. Was it adequate, was it quiet, was it clean, and could I get to the beach...YES to all. For the cost I'd probably go somewhere else next time.
the staff,,,were wonderful and helpful in suggesting a restaurant and it was a good one, I liked the old timey feel of the room, it was very clean ,I liked the spacious feel of it and it was located near the beach I liked everything about it,,,
Just a great place to stay No

The rooms are super cute and ours came with a little kitchen and a patio! Also, DOGS! The toilet was literally right in front of the the entrance to the shower.
It was clean. It was near the ocean.It had a certain oldtime charm. The staff person was nice. There was no one in the office when we left at 7:30 AM. There was a picnic table right outside the bathroom window. The bathroom window was an uncurtained, bathtub to ceiling glass brick wall. It was raining so there were several people at the picnic table under the covered patio. I was uncomfortable with usin
I loved the ocean view from my room. The staff was friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The indoor pool was much nicer than I anticipated - very clean, with a nice hot tub and sauna. Because weather at the coast can be unpredictable, it was nice to have an indoor pool as back-up entertainment for me and my young child. I was also pleasantly surprised by the "continental breakfast." We had cereal, bagels, waffles, oatmeal, fruit, and more available to us. I'm not really looking for luxury in a hotel but, rather, clean, safe, well-located at a reasonable price and The Waves definitely delivered. Though you can see the ocean right out your window, beach access is rather far away. I didn't realize that going in, so it was a mild disappointment. But this was minor.
Was able to hear the ocean at night I'm not a picky person, but maid service should be able to vacuum around the bed and walls had not been done in sometime. Gap under door was large enough to let light in and shower was extra small with out proper shower curtain. Front desk person was not happy that we arrived after 10:00pm. Sorry our jobs do not allow us to leave early in day. But my next stay in Newport will be with a motel that wants me there.
The pool was nice It wasn't clean the floor was dirty and there where ain't in the bathroom and near the window
The swimming pool area was great. It was clean and plenty of towels Nice view of the ocean. Staff was very nice and acccomodating. Rooms were a bit stuffy and the beds were too hard for my liking.
We came and stayed for 2 nights. Room was very clean. It was designated non-smoking. Shower had plenty of hot water (I have not always seen this to be true in economy hotels). Rooms were quiet (or maybe we were lucky and had quiet neighbors). Towels were of good quality. Although they used those really tiny bars of soap, housekeeping left a pile of them. The mattresses and pillows were average but fine. Although we did not need it, I was happy to see a clearly marked, easily accessible coin-operated guest laundry. Did I mention it was very clean? The hotel was an easy, several block walk into the historic district of Nye Beach. Breakfast was very adequate - a selection of breads with butter and jam, freezer waffles, hard-cooked eggs, cold cereals, fruit juice. The fruit bowl had lots of bananas. It was nothing fancy, but was completely adequate. Room also had dish tv and a DVD player. There was an eclectic selection of movies for rent in office. There was no direct beach access, which was disappointing. The one small window did not prop open very well, and that kept the room warmer than it needed to be (daytime temperatures were very warm). There are no balconies. No fan to help at window. The building we were in did not have an elevator and the climb to the 3rd floor was inconvenient (my knees are not good), although we liked our 3rd floor room. If we stay there again, I will remember to ask for the building with an elevator. My family did not mind not having the elevator. I hated that several guests came to breakfast in pajamas (really??!) - but that's not the hotel's fault! Decor was dated, but that would not prevent me from staying there again! There was a small alarm clock, that was not plugged in, but we had our cell phones, which we used for alarm clocks.
The ocean view is breathtaking. Down town Ney beach is wonderful. Fun for every age, from cafe to coffee, and dinner to drinks. This has it all. Have to walk or drive 1/4 mile to acsess beach. But the view from our room was worth the walk.
Nothing Rude, dirty
We enjoyed the pool, and the hotel is a short walk to beach access. Our room was very hot and smelled awful when we arrived. We left the window open the whole time and the smell became tolerable. The continental breakfast doesn't start until 8. We paid for ocean view and had an OK view over a neighboring roof and through power lines and a power pole.
facility not well maintained; faded, unfinished paint not very clean rooms have musty smell old carpets, old bedding, old drapery sheets did not fit bed even after request made that they do fit not much effort being made, obviously
Clean Air freshener was way too strong when we entered the room, my daughter's sinuses kept her up all night long.
You should stop emailing me after this You emailing me 5 times
conveniently located close to good restauarants spotty wifi
Clean rooms and good breakfast selection. Low rates for a good clean hotel room. Would be nice if they had a pool or spa.
Easy to find and good location on main highway through town. Room was clean and comfortable. Wish breakfast had diabetic options.
I booked the day we came on Spring BREAK so I was thrilled I got something at all. But the bonus was the family who ran it was cheerful and polite. You could tell by the grouds and rooms they took in pride in their property. The only thing I'd change is the bed, it was a tad squeaky due to the plastic on the box spring. We'd definitely stay again.
If you are looking for a clean, decent hotel room close to the beach and attractions but are on a budget, this is a great place to stay. Friendly staff, great location and very clean. Bed was very comfortable too!
Checked out little late but they were totally cool with it. Folks working the front desk and cleaning was done very well. For the price, I really can't complain. Close to all the surf spots near Newport.
You get what you pay for. Old and musty. Good enough for a one nighter
Despite the name, the room was clean, bed was soft, they're located just up the hill from Rogue Brewery and a lot of adorable shops on the inner side of the Newport bay, and the beach on the other side. It seems weird to mention but the window opens - something a lot of hotels at this price level have sealed shut. That's great with what nice weather you get most of the year. The name kind of implies something a lot worse. There was a loud argument between 2 people in one of the adjacent rooms, but, I've had that at pricey hotels, so, not very relevant.
Short walk to beach access. Staff were friendly. I said I wanted a quiet room, they think the highway side is quieter but in no way is that remotely true. There was sticky brown substance on the microwave buttons, there was sticky clear substance on bathroom floor. There was an overpowering floral/fruit scent permeating the room which never subsided even with door and window wide open.
Quiet. My mother and I walked into office to check just me in. Front desk lady somewhat rudely said "do you have a reservation or are you just shopping"? I told her that I had a reservation at which time she asked for my name. (My reservation was under my moms credit card, she wasn't staying withme she was only present because of card). The lady looked up my reservation and then said that she was going to charge me extra because the booking was only for one. I explained that my mom wasn't staying with me but is paying at which point I got a strange look from her. I felt very intimidated throughout this conversation. I got my key and we realized the room was literally the next door over from office. My mom went back in to see if I could switch rooms because I was worried about being kept up by noise. Lady rudely told my mom if I didnt like the room I could go somewhere else. Im not sure what we did to make this woman act so rude but we were nothing but polite with her. Would not recommend just based on my interaction with staff
Very friendly staff, walkable distance to everything, large room and bathroom No air conditioner or fan and it was hot.
I liked the location. Staff was friendly! For the most part the room was clean. Although I didn't use them they had a refrigerator and microwave in the room. This is always a plus. Had to park on the street because all the parking spots were taken. The shower, not soogood. It was pretty much a trickle. I guess they were trying to save water and money but not thinking of pleasing the customers. The continental breakfast was a joke.
Mike was great with customers, very friendly n knowledge able No, was good value for the money
location I liked that the rooms are non-smoking - I DIDN'T like that the room I was in was right next to (e.g. 2 feet from) the designated smoking area, which wasn't immediately apparent since it was two steps beyond the room (walked to the room, not past it)
The staff was incredibly friendly. The room was very clean. The wall are very thin. We could hear the people in the next room whooping it up until 1 am.
Free Wi Fi was incredibly fast. Very close to the beach and walking distance to great food (Newport Cafe) No AC. So did get a little warm. Luckily we had a fan with us just in case.
The Staff was all great. The cleaning staff gets top kudos. Office staff efficient, and cordial as could be also.. My wife is pretty much a stickler about CLEAN... and I can say that she was totally impressed. So if you or yours like CLEAN...!!
The lication, absolutelt. There was no ac that we could find, there was a fan but no way that we saw to turn it on. We went to dinner and planned on asking about it when we returned, but by then the front office was closed.
The location was good, and the bed was comfortable. No AC or fan. It was extremely stuffy and too quiet. No cribs for use. The shower had no pressure and no hot water. The free breakfast was lacking. There was no selection or variety. The hostess wasn't very helpful on the phone. NOT recommended.
Good quality continental breakfast with locally made quick breads. Decent coffee. Close to the beach and downtown. It can be noisy (road noise) as it's right on the 101 through town.
Its good Nothing as such
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Not 1 thing horrible, dirty , even the parking lot was horrible , like you might get mugged . And apartments looking directly into my room.
It was the cheapest The bathroom fan didn't work.
after driving four or five hours to reach this destination, we were greeted with a sign informing us that the office was closed until 8 the following morning.
The price was as expected, after reading other reviews I wasn't surprised when manager tried to up charge rate. I just looked at him for a few seconds without smiling and then asked him to explain the added 50 dollars, he stammered and said he was kidding Dishonesty of manager, ants, manager placed us as far as possible from entrance although plenty of vacancy. One towel for family of four, reading reviews I knew to bring own towels and double check for bed bugs.
The location was the best thing about this hotel, but there are lots of other hotels in the area. Spend the extra 10 bucks a night to upgrade to stay anywhere else. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone and will never stay there again. It was absolutely disgusting. Stains on walls, the floor, mold on the shower curtain, the lock on the door didn't work, dirty hand/fingerprints around doors and light switches.also, they advertise wifi but they dont offer it to guests.
The bed linens were actually fresh and clean. Bed was comfortable. It had all the basic appliances like fridge and microwave, television. The bath tub had soap scum. Husband got shocked from coming in contact with the TV platform. TV was grainy. Stayed for 2 nights, garbage were not collected. No fresh towels. No wash cloths, no shampoo. Toilet flusher broke. Mirrors dirty. Bath mat stained
The bathroom was awesome roomy and great for us The staff was rude and we got charged extra for kids when I filled out the form I said I was bringing two kids. The beds could use another blanket and a couple bigger pillows.
the room was small but very clean. yes i wish they stated that there were no small containers of shampoo or soap.
Nothing Dirty and dated. 13' TV hanging on the wall that had a picture that was not watchable. Stains on carpeting beyond cleaning. I got what I payed for this room. What killed me is I wanted to add a night and the price almost doubled to 4 star room pricing!
Dirty dirty dirty no pillow cases on pillows . smelled horrible
Several pieces broken in the room, WiFi not very reliable
Was right in the city. It was dirty. It had a very bad mildew smell. Cigarette burns all over bathtub. Had to run the water for 20 mins before jt would get warm. Was very run down and almost everything was broken.
I liked free parkng ,lots of towels, comfortable beds,pet friendly room. they need to update bathroom fixtures,lites and faucets .Need lamp at table for studing or games.
The hotel is inexpensive. There is no breakfast included, which means you should factor that into the cost per night. The hotel is dated and hasn't been updated. I never could connect to the wi-fi, and ended up connecting to the Days Inn next door.
Liked having my own inclosed balcony, frige and microwave. Quiet but very full. No problems sleeping. Staff didnt want to open the door to the office to my mother and I. He only let us in after we had to yell through the door that I had a reservation. No knowledge of the area and very hard to understand. It was ok just a bit of an unsettling experience with the manager. Would recommend to people that good at dealing with people but people with social anxiety stay away. I dont have a lot of problems handling people but being a woman staying alone in a room the managers adittude made me feel like if I was having a emergency he wouldnt be much help.
Location. Very close to beach and 24 hour taco shop
The staff was very nice and helpful. The room stunk the bedding was very old. The room faced the main street not the beach view. It was also farther away from things then was advertised.
The location, it is close to a state park, the aquarium, marine science center. They allowed our puppy, staff was friendly and brought us extra pillows. The walls are thin, there were people fighting and people running up and down the stairs at night. I guess it is an inexpensive motel, just wish people were more considerate. That was the only complaint I had about the motel.
The location was great, just minutes from the ocean and all sorts of fun things to do The rooms are an average size and the beds are not the best.The bed was just thrown together and was not nice and neat with the clean straight bed cover. It looked like they just quickly threw the cover on there with no concern for professional appearance
They do the best they can with what they have, and it's a quick 5 minute walk and you're on the beach.
Staff was very pleasant and helpful! For the price I paid I was very satisfied with the room and accommodations.
Let me state that the advertising for this site are deceptive at best. Should be advertised as a Boutique hotel. That being said the place was clean, well kept up and secluded, if not for the surrounding properties you would think you were in a place time forgot. It reminded me of the family beach house my grandfather built back in the 20's. The amenities in the kitchen were fine and the kitchen was sparkling clean. The property is so quite and the beach so private. The fact is the place and its charm grow on you and you settle in to a comfortable state of mind that one does not often find in to days crazy fast pace. An experience in nostalgia, a look back if you are like me a child of the 40's & 50's. As previously stated the place needs to be advertised as a boutique property. Explain the fireplaces are electric wall hangings. By comparing the average rates rates for the area I would consider this property about 15% overpriced when comparing amenities. The rate is equal to the Best Western at Agate beach which has food and beverage service and indoor pool among other things.
