Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

my wife left her wedding ring on the nightstand , the staff found it and turned it into the office. the management mailed it back to us at no charge to us. Very honest and professional. It would have been very easy for someone to keep the ring, but the staff and management really took care of us and our property

Truly a room with an awesome view. Watched the whales Migrating, beautiful sunset, walkable to Nye Beach, not to mention the beach access across the street. Truly a perfect location. Hotel staff was very friendly, helpful and informative. My daughter needed an extra blanket and they gave her two, no problem.

From online reviews and a desire to stay on the beach, we chose the Whaler - room was clean and spacious. Lovely to fall asleep listening to the waves! Easy walking distance to restaurants stores and Bakeries. Be sure to check out Georgie’s for supper, and the Blue Pig bakery!

Staff was amazing, view was absolutely beautiful, room was clean and comfortable. Air conditioner would have made the trip better but I just left the door open to the deck and was comfortable. Loved sleeping and waking to the ocean sounds and smells! I will definitely be back!

The location is great. I could see the ocean from my room on the second floor. I also saw beautiful sunset from my room. It was good value. Clean comfortable room with reasonable price. The bed was comfortable, the night was quiet. You could hear ocean waves if the window is open. The breakfast was great with some healthy food. You select your breakfast you would like to have when checking in. The bag was available to pick up from 6am. I would stay here again!
