"Best Western family getaway"

James G, Bellevue, United States 18/09/2020

Our stay was excellent from check in, hotel staff very friendly and helpful, and check out was simple. Rooms are very well appointed and clean. Will make our stay here an annual event during the summer and fall months.

"Amazing View"

ralverde, Portland, Oregon 17/09/2020

A few times each year, I go online and find somewhere with a relatively cheap hotel room for what it is, and go there. I didn't go with the cheapest this time, as it was fairly reasonable at this hotel and I wasn't going to pass up going to the coast instead of somewhere in the valley. My expectations were definitely exceeded staying here. It wasn't perfect, but the view and location just about are. I wouldn't have expected a hotel that is across the street from the beach to have this great of a view, but it does. The lighthouse on the cape is the crowning jewel of an already spectacular view. The hotel itself is very nicely remodeled, and you can tell the staff mostly cares here. There were a few things that could have been improved - the sheet on top of the blanket was very ratty, the shower isn't great, and the walls are super thin - but most everything was great. It was laid out nicely, the way the parking area was integrated was smart. The location is great - I especially appreciated that I didn't have to get on 101 to get all the way to Yaquina Bay, and it's right on the state park, which makes for easy access to the beach. Oh, the internet was overloaded a couple times during my stay, and was kicking me off; that could definitely be improved. My biggest issue was losing a few hours of sleep to the neighbors (yelling, hitting things, slamming the door, barking dog, screaming baby, they had it all); the walls are very thin, as mentioned. I thought they were checking out after my second night here, but I wanted to be sure so I went and asked at the front desk. She acted like no one has ever had an issue with noise, and it was the most bizarre question ever asked to find out if the next room was checking out that day. I could have demanded a different room or something, but instead I was trying to not cause any problems and just make sure it was taken care of. Not sure where I went wrong there to get that kind of response. I also got three different times for check-out. One said 11am PST, which we aren't in, so I assume they meant 11am PDT, and then the door in the room said 12pm (I guess that's two times, since it would be the same as 11am PST if I'm thinking correctly). Not sure which is correct, but it got me moving a little faster. Anyway, again, this is a great location with a great view and nice rooms, and I'll stay here again.

Cheryl C, Morristown, Tennessee 14/09/2020

Our room was clean, nice and the bed slept great! The bathroom was well stocked with towels and the toiletry items were extra nice. We had a late dinner on arrival day at the Bistro and it was delicious. We ordered breakfast served by room service and it was piping hot and delivered to our room within 25 minutes of ordering,. Nice hotel and I would stay again as well as recommend to others.

Mel M, Surprise, Arizona 26/08/2020

stayed at BW agate beach inn 5 nights. very clean, comfortable. newly remodeled and painted, carpet, etc. nice looking place. room s facing the beach had sliding glass doors to allow for seeing the beach and getting fresh air in. tried to sit at a table at eh sea glass lounge to get a drink but waiters need to keep tables open for paying dinner guests. we were asked to move on.

Loved this hotel very close to the beach but requires long walk down to the beachfront.. There were issues with access to the restaurant/lounge for wheelchair but hotel is very accommodating in all respects.

"Broken"

Darin410, Orland, California 10/08/2020

Broken every where you see. Started from the ride front desk with an attitude. Over charged us then when I caught the mess later I called an was put on hold for over 20 min while she fixed it. Glass around fire pit was broken and thrown down on the ground. Glass at the bar fire pit was all black and needed alot of cleaning Sink on the room was broken and epoxy was used on over half of the sink. Wrong color and looked horrible. Toilet dispenser wouldn't hold the tp Internet never worked and cable went out. Big potholes in the middle of the blacktop. Man bridge has a crack in the cement. Sliding door in room never locked. Asked for late checkout and was told not policy then called next day and asked same late checkout and was approved only to be called and questioned why we haven't vacated our room. Bitter experience

I highly recommend this hotel, especially if you are traveling with pets. The beds were very comfortable. We had an ocean view. The ocean was down a slight hill and across the street, but a great hike. I do recommend everyone be extremely careful when parking anywhere on the coast (or anywhere), we averted having our car window smashed and our valuables stolen by my husband returning early and watching the kids run from our car and speed off. Do not ever be complacent when traveling.

"Fantastic Manager, Great service"

User 28/07/2020

The hotel is beautiful and well maintained. It's an excellent value for the price and one of the nicest Best Westerns you'll ever see. I couldn't be more pleased with this hotel! The manager, Joshua, is a sweetheart.

"Great place! "

mrduncan826, Longmont, Colorado 20/07/2020

Was on a 14 day motorcycle trip, got caught in some weather and stopped here. Awesome! Very helpful and friendly staff, clean room, great view, good food in the restaurant. In the middle of this Covid-19 mess, this hotel is doing great! I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I have stayed in several coastal hotels over the past week, although most were similarly priced, none where as nice as this property!

"Great stay at the Agate Beach Inn!"

Sally F, Vancouver, Washington 20/07/2020

This was our first trip back to the beach since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 Stay at Home order. We were happy to see that everyone, staff and other guests, were wearing their masks and practicing physical distancing. We were very happy with the staff; they were helpful and friendly. Beach access is great! Rooms are comfy!

"Smoking Nearby"

User 17/07/2020

Some was smoking on their balcony and the smoke was coming in our room thru open door. Could see cigarettes & lighter on their air conditioner. Called front desk to let them know and they said would check out. Still had intermittent cigarette smoke coming in thru door all night.

"Pleasant Surprise!"

A6320DAmichaelm, Seattle, Washington 03/07/2020

This hotel was great! Clean rooms with amazing views. Decently priced. 3 min walk to the beach. Dog friendly. $30 fee/night was reasonable. Both of us people and the dog enjoyed everything. Service was wonderful. (Shoutout to Chris!) Really couldn't ask for more. :)

"Yuck!"

ChristianPico, Seattle, Washington 29/06/2020

Stayed here for a business trip. Went to my room to find a sticky and stinky stain on the carpet. Talked to the deck about getting a different room. Was told that for $20.00 I could Be moved to a room with a view. WTF????

SBrunson78, Beaver, Utah 29/06/2020

Great location and the beach is amazing staff was friendly and polite. With COVID 19. Some amenities were not available but it was still a great stay. Our only complaint was room service no one in our group was really pleased with breakfast. We expected better quality, food was bland and undercooked.

Edward M, San Dimas, United States 28/06/2020

You will not go wrong with this hotel. It is right on the water, with amazing views and easy access to the beach. The restaurant staff was very attentive and the food was delicious. Numerous beers on tap, including a local IPA which was great. Would highly recommend this hotel.

"Disappointed"

2
User 20/06/2020

Wasn't the best stay. When we showed up, the lady gave us a room that people were already in. She then told us that she was going to upgrade us to a full ocean view. Our full ocean view was actually a view of trees instead. Every time we went by the front desk to leave the lady would be rude. When you go to Book the rooms, their description says they have free continental breakfast, when I asked the lady about it, she said no they don't have it because they have a restaurant. We also got food from the restaurant, my husband got the clam chowder and it was cold. I got onion rings and it tasted like fish.

"Beautiful Hotel!!"

4
User 09/06/2020

This hotel was amazing! The rooms are very clean with plenty of rooms. The location is AMAZING! Its a five minute walk to the beach but that only counts for the walk from the back door to the water because the hotel is right on the beach itself! The price was incredible for a beach side hotel! It was so easy to drive to the places we wanted to visit and the staff were incredibly friendly. Sadly we did not get to try any of the food or beverages as the bar was closed the whole time we were there. The room service we did get was very good! All in all a beautiful hotel, affordable price, with a very friendly and welcoming staff. 100% will stay at this location again!

"Nice view!"

senseitraveler67, Cascade, Idaho 07/06/2020

The view on the Pacific side looking out at the yaquina light house is unmatched. The service considering the current covid-19 situation was good. Our room was not great. The sheets had leftover stains ( looked like chewing gum), the sliding door was inoperable due to what looked like a failing gaurd rail and the room smelled like a fresh baby diaper change. There was either ketchup or blood stain on the window curtain. I'm not sure what the appeal is with the barn doors for the bathroom but it doesn't provide much privacy. Specially when your sharing a room. This trip was a scouting trip for a future weeding so we hope the conditions improve. As far as the price I think they are a little high but considering the view and easy beach access, that is a fair compromise. This trip was discounted because of the scouting trip for a wedding.

"Not satisfying"

Taylormay26, Eugene, Oregon 05/06/2020

First of all I was trying to get away from stress for a night and this experience made it worse . I was checking in and was rudely interrupted by guests behind me and instead of the front desk lady finishing up with me she started conversing with them and I ended up just walking away ( she took forever to come out and help me too and didn't say sorry about that just got right in to asking what I needed help with . My room was 2 something but I thought it meant second floor so it took me forever to find because there isn't a second floor I finally figured out it meant “ lobby “ . Trash in the corner of our room clearly from the people before us . Door locked but unlocked when the handle was pulled down so we had to put a chair in front so my child wouldn't run out the entire time .Not worth the price . I would choose Hallmark resort for an extra $30 anytime . Way nicer balcony there too.

User 29/05/2020

I travel for work so every week is a new place new hotel. This experience was special because my family was with me, so I expected near perfection. Upon my arrival there was an issue with my booking not at all related to the hotel. After management figured out the problem not only did they gladly correct it, they went above and beyond. However, I was no special guest. You could see how the hotel staff from guest service to front desk to room service to house keeping and management treat their guest. Everyone is always greeted with a smile and a warm welcoming willingness to help. It reminded me that customer service in the right places is a love and well. Pool is currently being repaird bummer but the beach is a walk away with incredible views. Walmart is next door literally if you want or need last minute items but we preferred the local scene which has MANY items to choose from. Parks are located up and down the coast and I believe there are 3 within 15 min drive. So location is spot on and central. I was absolutely blown away with this hotel and staff I definitely know where I'll be staying again. Big thanks to joshua!! Any concerns speak with him

"Nice hotel that sadly doesn't live up to it's potential"

PDXPremier, Hillsboro, Oregon 25/05/2020

The Good: 1. Modern, updated furnishing in the room and lobby (VERY comfortable queen beds) 2. Friendly, helpful staff 3. Great location with a view of the ocean and lighthouse 4. Easy access to Agate Beach from the hotel with a readily available garden hose for rinsing off the beach sand The Bad: 1. Nearly every place to sit in the relatively large lobby had a "reserved" sign on it regardless of being 6 feet apart--not very welcoming if you're looking for a place to hang out with family and friends outside the room. 2. With the heavy emphasis on improved room cleaning and sanitation due to the Covid pandemic, I was surprised when my kid found a few items on the hotel room floor leftover from a previous guest. 3. Odd communication--A hotel representative called before my arrival asking me to call back and confirm my stay. I tried calling back, but couldn't get through so I emailed the front desk with my stay confirmation as well as a few requests that were never again addressed (request for a top floor room and room service menu). 4. The hotel website specifies that this hotel offers room service which I thought about ordering for breakfast, but there is literally nothing in the room or at the front desk with room service information. As mentioned previously, my emailed request for a room service menu went unanswered. In fact, you could easy stay at this hotel and never even know they had a relatively nice looking restaurant on the bottom floor--do they really not want people to eat there?? 5. Both my wife and I are dog people, but if you aren't, you're not going to like this place since there are literally dogs everywhere. The only reason this is under the "bad" is because the people staying in the room next to us left there dog in the room which barked constantly for well over an hour on a Sunday morning. 6. Since we were staying 2 nights, on our way to lunch, I asked the front desk about getting housekeeping service while we were out, but he said they don't offer housekeeping on stayovers--huh? We ended up making our own beds and making multiple trips to ask hotel staff for extra cups, toilet paper, and towels. I can't imagine staying here for longer than 2 nights without housekeeping service. Part of the "fun" of staying at a hotel on vacation is coming back to a restocked, clean room so this is a major negative in my book.

Tucked away from the road a very small distance is the Agate Beach BW. What a great place! The staff were phenomenal and the accommodations were marvelous. Had an unplanned stay but the staff treated me as though I was a long time regular. Jash and Isaac, at the front desk, were great to speak with. Stay, whether for work or pleasure, you will be treated like royalty.

chloe0136, Stanfield, Oregon 03/03/2020

The tub didn't drain and the bed was not comfortable however I have a very expensive bed at home and I think I'm just not used to regular mattresses. The walk to the beach has a lot of water and is supposed to be emergency access only so it's not family friendly at all. Breakfast girl has an attitude. Front desk was amazing they addressed most of my issues and I did not remember to tell them about my tub not draining.

HotelMgmt1, General Manager at Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
Chloe, we are glad you took the time to share your thoughts with us. I cannot wait to thank the front desk for their exceptional service, but we regret to read you experienced some difficulties. Your helpful feedback will indeed be discussed further, and please know that the state has added a convenient 10-foot bridge to the left of the beach emergency access to make that walk more enjoyable! Be sure to revisit and check it out the next time you are in town!

Stayed Valentines Day weekend, clean room, nice view, staff was very friendly. Only issue during our stay was with parking one night due to an event for the holiday. Non guests took up every bit of parking as well as all the fire lane parking. We came back two times to the hotel before finally finding a place to park.

Thank you for joining us over the holiday weekend here at the Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn. It is wonderful to hear you loved our freshly renovated guest rooms as well as our charming staff!

timmer357, Eugene, Oregon 16/02/2020

Our daughter requested this property specifically over the Hallmark, our usual getaway when we want to splurge. We came over from the Valley and we were allowed to check in early. The room was okay...once we got in....the key cards didn't work and we had to go back down from 6th floor and carrying bags. Waited in a long line, again. It wasn't fun waiting in line to hear the customer in front of me paying $70 less as they booked on Expedia. They had the same two queen, ocean view room. I mentioned that to staff and no one cares. The bathroom “barn” doors are a joke after the remodel. Absolutely zero privacy. There is minimum 1.25 inch gap between door and walk (peek a boo isn't fun as an adult). Went to the pool and it was extremely busy. The toilet was clogged, there were no paper towels, and the cloth pool towels ran out. We had decided to stay here three times over the past few years when wanting to save a bit over the Hallmark. Honestly we learned our lesson and will stick with clean, private bathrooms, and just accepting a bit more money. If you are going to stay at this property, please do yourself a favor and save $70 booking on Expedia. Sure wish I could have saved that....

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We have enjoyed having you here with us, and we are glad we could accommodate your early arrival. However, it is disheartening to learn of the difficulties you experienced, and we sincerely apologize for missing the mark. I can understand your frustration with the key cards, and we will look into that further to prevent it in the future. Also, we appreciate your input on the room as we always look for new ways to improve. This certainly does not sound reflective of our high standards, and we would love the opportunity to offer you a five-star visit!

Everything about this visit was great. Last minute check-in that was not a bad deal at all. Acceptable price. The room was well kept for the age of this building. Very clean and an amazing view to the ocean. The pool area was very nice. Beach access is just a short walk down, across the road and you are there. The only hiccup was the upper parking lot access bridge security door malfunction. A group of us were stuck outside for a bit while they got someone to open the door. Otherwise, what a great stay.

User 01/02/2020

We have been staying here for the last four years for a gymnastics meet. Unfortunately this will be our last time staying here. The cleanliness is just not there. Are bathroom was dirty when we checked in. Tooth paste on the walls of the bathroom. Dirty finger prints all over the bathroom door. Used ear Q-tips from the previous guest was left on the counter. Lastly they have mice. My wife heard squeaking in the bathroom while she showered. I told her she was crazy. But then the next day she showed me a picture of a mouse turd on the bath mat. I'm a little disappointed because the staff here is extremely friendly and helpful they deserve 5 stars. But who ever is cleaning the rooms needs some more training.

Doug, thank you for taking my call today in regards to your experience. As mentioned on the call, we have already placed this room off market and our vendor is responding to the issue you noted. We have also trained with our housekeeping team regarding the cleanliness concern. Thank you for the wonderful comments about our team and having been such a loyal guest over the last 4 years. We look forward to seeing you during next year's event.

I have stayed at the Agate Beach Inn on several occasions and it has become my favorite in that area of the Oregon coast. The hotel is situated along the coast, with commanding views of the ocean and ready access to the beach. The hotel is attractive, well maintained, clean and offers all the basic Best Western Plus amenities. Staff are very courteous and friendly. Rooms are very comfortable, many with ocean views. Restaurant/lounge is on site and offers good selection of standard food and bar fare. Abundant parking. Great Internet connectivity throughout the facility. Delightful off lobby sitting area that offers complimentary late afternoon beverages. Rooms are well priced and offer nice value. I will be back again soon!

We have stayed at this hotel a few different times and have loved it! It's clean and quiet and is a great location they have wonderful ocean view room. that are clean and large and the bed and pillows are comfortable as well,. The staff is great the food is awesome and the wine tasting was fantastic There are lots of windows facing the beach so even if you didn't have a room on the ocean side you can still enjoy the view from the window alcove with chairs.

This hotel ahas bern through a complete redo. It's also part of Best Western's effort to upgrade their brand. Basically it's like checking into a new hotel. Oceanside rooms have a dramatic ocean view. There's direct path to Agate Beach. Restaurant is very good and they have an espresso bar in the mornings

HotelMgmt1, General Manager at Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
We are happy to know we exceeded your expectations with all of our beautiful updates to the hotel, and we thank you for your kind words. I love to know that our stunning views contributed significantly to your five-star stay as well as our convenient beach access. All of us at the Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn hope to impress you further the next time you are in town!

Whenever I take a trip with or without my family I stay at a Best Western. This location is one of my favorites. Beautiful views of the ocean and very easy access to it. Upon checking in we were greeted by a very nice woman working at the front desk. I didn't book an ocean view room, but she very kindly offered me an upgrade to an ocean view and I took it! I can't remember her name but she was very helpful and nice! Despite the overcast sky, the view from my room was gorgeous. The room was very clean, and the bed was comfortable (thank you housekeeping for all you do!) I remember staying at this hotel a few years ago and was told there would be remodeling and I love how it all turned out. The lobby looks very nice and welcoming and like I said the rooms look very nice and clean as well. Highly recommend this hotel to anybody staying in Newport!

Best Western Agate Beach is more upscale than other Best Western Hotels and is right on the beach. It is our favorite stop along the Oregon Coast and try to get there at least every few months. The location is perfect and the views are a delight. We especially enjoyed our room during the recent King Tides!

scodama1, Salem, Oregon 02/01/2020

A well-designed and operated hotel, with great access to beautiful Agate Beach. Rooms were a bit small but nicely furnished, many with good views of the ocean and Yaquina Head and its lighthouse in the distance. (We had a "lighthouse view" room, which turned out to have an ocean view but smaller windows; in the future, I'll pay a bit more for a standard ocean view room. But still, the view was great.) The lobby was cozy, and furnished with a small telescope, a chess set, game table, and fireplace, and front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Main trade-off is the location: good beach access, but not walking distance to much else except a Walmart, so a car is required to get to restaurants or shops.

HotelMgmt1, General Manager at Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
We appreciate you offering us a review. We enjoyed having you here at the Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn, and it is wonderful you were able to see the lighthouse from your room. I certainly would love to work on getting you into the perfect fit next time you are in town to soak up more of the ocean though. We are happy our lobby kept you entertained, and I will indeed convey your praise to our delightful team for their warmth and dedication. Be sure to return soon!

My usual favorite hotel has missed the mark this time. My ocean view room was almost the worst I've had here and they didn't acknowledge my call when I notified them I would be late. When I got there, I had to wait about 15 minutes for staff to come to counter for checkin and when I left, the wait was even longer due to staff lack of knowledge in how to check people in from of me in--her words not mine.

My wife & I stayed 3 nights, had a beautiful view of the ocean from our room. The room was comfortable & very clean, no problems accessing the internet. There's a nice-sized hot tub & pool we enjoyed, & a lounge where we enjoyed a mixed drink rather than drinking somewhere else then driving on the winding roads on the Oregon coast. Prices for the drinks were good, & I would recommend trying some of the bar foods! The staff was great, the atmosphere overall was relaxing. We're going back to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.

My son and I stayed for Thanksgiving and ate Thanksgiving dinner in the restaurant which was excellent. The hotel was clean, updated and well maintained. When we checked in the front desk person let my son pick a toy out of their toy chest, which he was thrilled about. Then she told me about a cool hands-on science museum I didn't know about that we ended up going to as well, and we really enjoyed because of her suggestion. Beautiful views, easy access to walk to the beach and close to town. We also finished each day swimming in the pool and slept great. We will be back.

We have 2 dogs & had booked at the last minute & she helped us out so much. Major kudos & a huge thank you to Melissa for being so great!

We had a wonderful stay. Our room was spacious, comfortable beds, lots of pillows. It had a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. All are essential with a baby. The lobby has games, puzzles, comfortable seating. The pool was a decent size and perfectly warm. Lots of clean towels. There's access to the beach down a short paved trail. Outside they have a gas fire pit. The service from the women working at night was what stands out the most. I didn't catch her name, but she was great. She made us feel so welcome. We didn't eat at the restaurant. Maybe next time.

The hotel was remodeled a few years ago but it looks like it was remodeled a few months ago. Lovely beach colors without being overly beachy in decor. The lobby is a comfortable gathering place. There are chairs on each floor's elevator lobby with great ocean views. The rooms are large and well appointed. The restaurant faces the ocean and there are outside dining tables, some with fire pits. The onsite restaurant service has nice menu with friendly service.

Overall, we had a wonderful stay. I think this facility needs a larger hot water supply for ALL the rooms. When everyone is taking a shower in the morning. Water temperature drops dramatically. I left my motorhome generator running. Management and staff were gracious enough to tactfully ask me to eliminate the noise because it was disturbing the other guests. They were all very professional in the way they handle the situation. You've got a good crew there.

OldProChef, Seattle, Washington 27/10/2019

I like this place cuz it was kind of out of the way of the mainstream at the north end of town. Nicely appointed rooms, nothing fancy, with a nice view of the beach. A short walk from your hotel you could be on the beach. Nothing spectacular but worth a stay. If you're just interested in the place to crash this much cheaper places but if you'd like a little view for about double the price of an inland Motel then this one will suffice

Mer57maid, Murray, Utah 27/10/2019

My daughter and I wanted to stay on the coast and while I was a little skeptical about Best Western Plus, I must say we were delighted with our stay and the amenities! First, when I reserved the room, I requested the top floor with and ocean view. The hotel responded quickly to confirm and ask if I had any other requests. Check-in was easy, parking was convenient (skybridge to the 6th floor) and our room was exactly as we expected with a balcony view of the ocean. The beds were very comfortable with high quality bedding and pillows. The room had many conveniences including a small fridge, coffee maker and even a microwave. We went to the Sea Glass Bistro and Lounge on the ground level and had a very nice dinner. We could have walked easily to the beach, but it rained most of the time we were there. Would recommend this clean, convenient property to any travelers wanting an upscale experience for a reasonable price!

"Not worth the money"

GiddyupWA, Tonasket, Washington 24/10/2019

Looks plush and fancy, but there is no free breakfast and the onsite restaurant is expensive and has quite a limited menu. Only 14 "close" parking spaces -- the rest are in an elevated lot and you have to access via a 6th floor skyway walking bridge that isn't enclosed or covered. Their wi-fi would not connect to my Windows 10 laptop, despite being put on the phone with a tech expert. The bathroom door is the sliding barn door type -- doesn't disguise the fact that the bathroom and bathroom doorway are quite small, and the door was very difficult to open and close from inside the bathroom without breaking a fingernail or two. I personally didn't use any of the "extra" features in the hotel, but I can definitely say I would never book a room here again.

If there is one thing that our area of Newport is known for, it would be the breathtaking views and simple pleasures of just enjoying a day along the coastline! Thus, we were elated that Mother Nature cooperated during your weekend getaway and you had a chance to explore our seaside locale. Even better was to find that the comfort of our spacious accommodations and variety of on-site amenities made the Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn a convenient home-away-from-home for you. Thank you for taking a moment to share this experience with us and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Great property. I had no need to go to tow n to eat or explore. You are right on the beach and the food is excellent. Try the clam chowder! The bed was fantastic. Many of my fellow conference attendees commented on the quality of the bed. Internet was great Staff (Front Desk, Housekeeping, Engineering, Restaurant, Room Service and Conference/Banquet were all superb.

Booked a seaview room this October. The rates were rather high for the fall season. The maid did a terrible job in cleaning and making the bed. Picture enclosed of my bed. Very bad service for the price I paid. Plus in the afternoon someone tried to brake into my room. Thank god that I had the dead bolt on

We hope for one more chance to restore your trust!

We stayed here two nights and enjoyed the property very much! It felt like a charming boutique hotel. Our view of the ocean and lighthouse was lovely! Enjoyed the walk to the beach and watching the sunset. The hotel grounds were very nice, including a fun firepit area. Great wine tasting from 5 to 6. We enjoyed breakfast and lovely view from restaurant. Very friendly staff! We hope to be back one day! There is much to do nearby.

"Not what we expected"

spelkey56, Harrisburg, Oregon 12/10/2019

We are Best Western Rewards members so we frequently pick BW when we travel. We've traveled the coast for many years and never stopped in at this particular hotel. Truth is, we probably won't come back. Don't get me wrong, the rooms are nicely appointed and clean, with a nice size tv, and everything we need, but.......We thought it was weird to have to park as they put it, down the street, turn left, go up the hill, and park in the parking lost up there, then walk across a sky bridge, take the elevator to your room. Our room number was 222. So naturally we get in the elevator and look for floor 2. Nope, there is no floor 2. I'm not kidding, no floor 2. So we are perplexed, other hotel patrons trying to help us are perplexed. Finally after a while of trying different floors we find floor 2, you guessed it, the lobby lever, what? Ok, so we finally find our room. Ocean view, not far from the pool, and fitness room. Fitness room is pretty lacking. The so called view is a view of sorts. Your view is form across a road and then a street. You can't even hear the waves with your door open. The balcony is just large enough to stand on but that's it. Not large enough to sit outside and enjoy the waves (that is, if you could hear them). We ate at the restaurant and I went into the bar also to check it out. It was crazy crowded with one bartender, one server, and someone else more like a hostess. They were slow to say the least, because of the crowd. The bartender was obviously frustrated so I asked her what was going on. She said it's hard to get help because of the cost of housing in Newport. True about the cost, the reason why? I'll never really know. I was so disappointed I called around to a couple of my favorites to see if they had openings. I changed my mind after they all quoted me outrageous prices for a last minute stay. I'll just chalk this one up to a learning experience. I do need to make mention of the fact that the dinner was good. My wife had the filet mignon and it was really good. I had a salad and it was good, just a little light on the chicken. I'll try to post a couple of pics so that you know what you're getting with your ocean view.

User 07/10/2019

Excellent hotel and stay but avoid breakfast. It's way too expensive and not very good at all. The hotel room and location are great and I would highly recommend staying here and ask for a room on a high floor for a great view. Very dog friendly as well. Indoor pool.

"Nice property"

User 05/10/2019

The property is nicely situated near the beach, with a convenient access path. We had an ocean-front room on the third floor. There is a very narrow balcony - much too narrow to utilize for anything but standing and looking out. The room walls are relatively thin, so little privacy (we always bring earplugs, fortunately). Very overpriced room (we stayed in late September). The facility itself is very lovely, with nice decor and many cozy areas to sit and lounge. The fun, oversized games scattered throughout were a nice touch!

WestJordanJim, west jordan 19/09/2019

This is a very nice property. The decor and pool are first rate. We were surprised that no breakfast was offered but we found a great place off the property. This is an upscale place and very comfortable. The views of the ocean are amazing and there are chairs that you can sit inside the hotel and view the waves. It is fairly close to the beach and very walk-able. The one downside besides breakfast is that the sky bridge is not covered so if it is raining, you get very wet.

HotelMgmt1, General Manager at Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the review. We are delighted you had a flawless stay with us here at the Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn, and that our beautiful ocean views were just what you hoped for.

Tracey B, Portland, Oregon 13/09/2019

Celebrating an Anniversary, our request for a delightful room was accommodated a great check-in experience and we enjoyed the wonderful room. HOWEVER, we dined at the restaurant for breakfast and food/service was NOT good - my husband became severely ill afterward. Told Front Desk at check out, wrote an urgent email that day & left a detailed message for F&B who did not return my call. I received an apology but quite surprised the breakfast was not removed from the bill after such an incident.

Thank you for your feedback, Tracey. While we are thrilled that both your guest room and the service at check-in were excellent, we sincerely apologize for the issues you dealt with regarding your breakfast dining experience.

We understand your concern and frustration, and will certainly be discussing your experience with our team to ensure that none of these lapses in service or food quality repeat themselves going forward. It is our hope that you will allow us the opportunity to regain your trust with a flawless stay in future.

SallyF41, Vancouver, Washington 10/09/2019

I grew up in Newport and actually remember when this hotel was built. I've attended a few functions here throughout the years, but this was my first overnight visit. The room we stayed in on the 6th floor was excellent. The beds were comfy and we had plenty of room. I think hotels built 30+ years ago have wider rooms which is awesome. Best Western has done a great job of keeping the property in A+ shape. We ate breakfast in the Sea Glass Bistro; the food was delicious.We didn't take advantage of the pool and hot tub this trip, but we will definitely be back. As a matter of fact, I already have a reservation for next month!

We were looking for a hotel near Newport with a good view. The rooms on the beach side have a great view of the huge beach and the water.

"Given keys to an occupied room!"

User 22/08/2019

The lady who checked us in didn't tell us a thing about the place, not even where our room was located. Usually, you get the whole speel like pool location and hours as well as restaurant location and hours. Let alone that it's a non- smoking hotel. We got our key card for our room, opened the room to find it was being occupied! Luckily we saw no nudity! Lucky for them we weren't thieves. This was a first for us! Couldn't open our sliding door to the ocean due to someone smoking. It would fill our room pretty bad. I didn't want to complain but it kept happening. Housekeeping quickly checked into it. Not the hotel's fault just inconsiderate people breaking the rules. The rooms were clean, the bed had nice pillows. Nice lemony soap and lotion. Walls were thin, we heard lots of going on. The restaurant was neat! Fire pits at some tables, food was a bit pricey, $35 for mac n cheese with crab on it, I'm sure it was good but that's a nutty price. Maybe it's summer prices. There were some kids that the parents let run wild, running up and down the hallways at 10 pm. Crossing the street back and forth alone and yelling for each other. The parents paid no attention as they were playing with the telescope. I would stay again but maybe in the offseason.

FlyWagon, Shoshone, Idaho 19/08/2019

Not only does this hotel have an excellent location, is well-appointed, and is well-staffed the ocean-side rooms are airy and provide wonderful views of the Pacific Ocean Yaquina Head Lighthouse. Each of the six sunsets we viewed were different but all were awe-inspiring. Our parting question from every accommodation is always, Will we return? The answer here was a firm "yes". We are, in fact, already looking ahead to 2020. The room furnishings were comfortable and practical. Even the wall decorations were pleasing. We're readers so we never tried the TV and if we have one minor complaint it would be that the reading lights left something to be desired. We compensated by providing our own. We're used to this shortcoming in many hotels. Apparently most travelers prefer television for entertainment. it's a pet-friendly property and though we left our dogs at home this time, there were plenty of furry friends to pet. There is easy access to the beach plus a skyway on the sixth floor to one of the parking lots and more pet area.

Elizabeth N, Dundee, Oregon 18/08/2019

Birthday celebration for my husband. Hotel remodel was done and rooms are very stylish and comfortable. Bed was very comfortable, bathroom space a bit small but worked. Loved the extra counter space. It would have helped if the sink was placed at least 6” to the left - to give space to who was sitting down. There was a balcony-if you call 6” a balcony. They talked about beach front-yes but there is a road to cross and a BIG beach to cross to get to the ocean. Bring you binoculars. Check in staff very friendly. Check out-not very helpful.

I never have trouble while staying at a Best Western, It is the only place I stay when I travel if there is one in town. Our Agate Beach stay was typicial of BW. The staff is so polite and courtious. The building grounds are well maintained. Registration is fast and easy. Rooms are clean and upscale. This inn has an attached resturant. We only had breakfast, which was good but the dinner menu was intising but we had to visit our favorite place while in Newport.

kati2006, Portland, Oregon 15/08/2019

Booked this hotel last minute and we were lucky to have an ocean view room. The front counter staff are friendly. The inside of the building is clean and room is very clean. Our room is next door to the swimming pool. The pool hour is until midnight. I could hear door opening and closing until about 11 PM. If you are light sleeper, avoid this room. The hotel is across street from a beach. It took sometime to walk from the road side to the water but the beach is very quiet which I like. I thought breakfast is best western standard but I was wrong. Will pay attention when booking next time. Overall it is a nice stay but considering there are so many families visiting, an arrival snack or breakfast will be a nice touch.

We always stay at Best Western hotels for their hospitality and for allowing pets. We can't travel without our old dog by our side and we never have an issue when he's there. He's a big boy at 75lbs but everyone loved him and treated us well. We enjoyed the lounge every day, the indoor pool and hot tub and my favorite: the fire pit overlooking the ocean. It was such a beautiful view. The hotel has it's own beach access and we enjoyed many walks on the beach because of it. It was our first time at this particular Best Western and I would definitely stay there again.

The Agate Beach Inn is located on a bluff overlooking Agate Beach with half the rooms with a sunset view across the beach, with historic Yaquina Head lighthouse to the NW. Recently renovated, the hotel has a full-service restaurant (indoor and patio seating) and is immaculate and well-maintained by friendly staff. Access to the beach is down a gentle hill about 300 yards without crossing any major roads. The beach is very flat and safe for kids. Will definitely stay here in the future.

The hotel appeared recently updated. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Staff not good at keeping coffee available in the morning. Restaurant staff was cordial but not attentive, service was extremely slow, and food did not match the high pricing.

Thank you for being a guest at our hotel. We are pleased you were happy with our recent updates, and that you enjoyed the many comforts in our guest rooms. It is disappointing to hear the team did not offer you the best service possible, and I will surely speak with them so that we do not fall short in the future. We hope to have you back for an improved all-around visit soon!

"Very Comfortable Coastal Hotel"

John C, Bali, Indonesia 03/08/2019

We checked in as a family of three after arriving from another hotel we booked on line. That one was a huge disappointment and we were very fortunate to find accomodations at the Agate Beach Inn. Amy at the front desk found us a very nice room on the 6th floor- highest floor - away from the elevators. It had all the amenities and was all we expected. A short walk - 10 minutes - from our room to the beach. We did not eat at the hotel restaurant. The lobby has good coffee available all day and nie views of the Pacific. There is plenty of parking and it is located minutes from all the 'must sees' in the Newport area. This hotel is a very good value for the money and ALL the staff we interacted with were helpful, friendly, and seemed to take a great deal of pride in the work they do, the hotel guests, and their employer. If going to Newport in the future, YES, we will stay at this property again if the rates remian as they are now in August 2019. My only complaint if one needs to be mentioned is that our room was not made up until later in the day,, around 4 PM. Minor inconvenience.

"Dogs barking at night, pet stains and odors on carpet"

User 29/07/2019

We stayed 2 nights on vacation. Check in was a problem even though we are Diamond Elite members. We had requested 1pm check-in, our room not ready until after 4pm. Unfriendly and incompetent front desk. Lots of excuses. The restaurant was good and reasonably priced. The facility and grounds were recently remodeled and attractive. Too bad the service didn't match. They put us in a pet room and refused to change, we did not want a pet room. We were awakened by barking dogs and pet noise. The carpet had suspicious brown spots on it. Strong deodorant smell.

About 100 family members from across the country gathered at the Agate Beach Inn for 4 nights. Our time together could not have been better. From the conference room we had access to 24/7 to the convenient restaurant, to the beautiful view from the room, to wine tasting each evening,to the extremely friendly/helpful staff--our stay could not have been better. Our stay this second time was even better than the first and we will gather at Agate Beach Inn for our next reunion too!

We've returned here a few times. Attentive staff. Thoughtful upgrades (morning coffee; wine and cheese reception in the evenings; cucumber water all day). We didn't quite make it to the (new) salt pool. Nor did we make it to the gym. But both looked inviting. Clean, pretty, spacious room.

Amandasilva72112, Creswell, Oregon 26/07/2019

We have stayed at this hotel before the updates. I have to say since the remodel this is one stop shop in my mind. Access to the beach, pool, lounge view of the lighthouse and more. They even have a treasure chest for younger kids to pick out a prize. They have games available all over the hotel. They offer beach blankets as well. They have a new fire pit complete with chairs and marshmallow roastingng sticks. The only thing is I wish they have locks on the bathroom doors in the bedrooms. We will come back again!!

Abbs2250, Wisconsin 24/07/2019

Stayed here two nights on our Oregon vacation. Room was nice and clean. Liked the decor of room and hotel overall. Set up is kind of different with parking on hill and entering on the 6th floor...but can be helped much since it's built on a hill. Views are beautiful. It can be a hike to the beach...and from the start of the beach to the water. But it's great once you get there! The patio area is nice in the morning or evening to watch the sunset. We enjoyed our stay.

Dawn N, Olivehurst, California 22/07/2019

We spent a night at this beautiful hotel during a recent coast road trip, and out of 5 hotels this was by far our favorite! The property is gorgeous, the rooms are divine, and the staff is incredibly friendly. We had our dog with us, so we were expecting to get stuck in a crappy room (this is common in many hotels), but instead we were given a lovely room on the 6th floor with a partial ocean view! It was a quick walk over the Skywalk to get to a pet area, which was much appreciated! Our dog was also allowed to come to the evening wine social in the lobby (which was GREAT - we met a lot of fellow travelers and had a blast), as well as the patio of the bistro/lounge (we ate an AMAZING dinner there and watched the sunset). Best of all is the easy access to the beach...and Agate Beach is the best! Really, there are so many little touches at this hotel, all of which add up to making your stay a great one. We wish we'd booked more than one night here...you can bet we'll be back next summer for a MUCH longer stay!

This is a fantastic inn! It has beautiful views of the beach and let me say that beach sunsets are beautiful! The room we stayed in is a room without the beach view from the room. The room pivoted here was very clean and extremely well kept. The beds are very high quality and comfortable. The inn offers a workout room, swimming pool, and many other amenities! Well worth the price charged!!!

This was our second stay here. Although the hotel does not sit directly on the beach the view is very lovely. The rooms have balconies that you can actually stand out on but are very short and too small for a chair. It is outside of town and not walkable to shops and restaurants but there is a restaurant and a sports bar which serves food and in effect is a more casual restaurant both on site. The building is exceptioally clean and the staff is top notch.

This Best Western really is a step above most BW properties. Spacious, quiet rooms, lovely ocean views, if you choose a room with a view, and a restaurant/lounge on site, if you don't want to go out off the property to eat. Free breakfast is not included, but the restaurant has a daily breakfast special (different each day) for $5 that is really delicious, in addition to a menu of other items for every meal. We were in the middle of a trip down the Oregon coast. We were told that Mo's clam chowder is the best, but I think I had the best cup of clam chowder of our trip right there in the restaurant at Best Western Agate Beach Inn! We were there for a conference. If you're looking for a place along the Oregon coast to hold a conference, this is an excellent choice!

We reserved this hotel while on the road driving south. Since we had been staying in several BW Plus Hotels we knew the hotel would be what we were looking for. The hotel was much larger than we expected but it was beautiful. We didn't have an ocean view but our room was perfect. Slept well as the hotel was very quiet. We only wished the breakfast was included like other BW Plus' has been.

Jaylynn0908, Calgary, Canada 05/07/2019

This hotel has the most amazing location, right across from Agate beach. The rooms and hotel have all had a beautiful renovation, it is very modern, clean and comfortable. I loved the bed, I slept very well here. If you can do it, get an ocean view room, the view is amazing. They have a nice pool and hot tub, and what I liked most about it, is that from 10pm until midnight it is adults only! I did use the hot tub one night. The only thing that stopped me from giving this 5 stars is that it is the only Best Western I have ever stayed at that does not include breakfast of some sort. They did have an option in the restaurant downstairs for a $5 option, but it was one item per day for that price, one day was Denver omelettes. I don't eat peppers or onions so we didn't go there for breakfast.

We love this Best Western at Agate beach. We often travel with our 2 dogs and they are so dog friendly. If you stay on the 6th floor, there is a sky walk from there to an upper parking lot and places to walk dogs. They have 2 other dog areas as well, one with lots of green grass for fetch and they provide doggie bags and garbage cans to make it all so easy! The front desk folks are super friendly and accommodating. Check it out!!

LauraL3381, Victoria, Canada 08/06/2019

Husband and I stayed 2 nights in June. We had a room on the 5th floor, facing the ocean. You can only stand on the balcony as it is only about a foot wide, but, it was nice to appreciate the view, take pictures and get fresh air. My only complaint about this Best Western is, I'm used to a free breakfast, with multiple choices. This hotel has a bistro. They have a $5:00 breakfast for guests. The first morning was bacon pancakes, which I had. The second morning were breakfast burritos. As I can't eat eggs without having medical issues, I could not partake.

"Expensive for a terrible room next to the noisy lobby"

User 06/06/2019

I reserved an ocean view room, it wasn't the most expensive available but there were cheaper hillside rooms available. I showed up and was given a hillside room. I was offered the option to upgrade to an ocean view room at an additional expense. I chose not to due to the high cost. Was never offered any compensation for the additional expense I paid for an ocean view room.

We appreciate you offering us a review of your experience. I am unsure of your booking specifics, but when the reservations are not made through the hotel, we are unaware of the details prior to your arrival. Therefore, room types are based upon availability at check-in. We can certainly appreciate your frustration, and I hope you give us another chance to win you over in the future!

We had a wonderful room with king bed, microwave, and refrigerator. There was a small balcony ( room for standing only) with a great view of the beach. It was only a short walk down the hill to the beach and there was a hose for rinsing your feet when you return. Breakfast was $5, with only one meal choice available, so we decided to eat elsewhere.

Recently had an opportunity to stay at the Best Western at agate Beach, the staff was amazing very helpful food in the lounge and the dining area was excellent great value and delicious. The hotel itself was very charming from the fireplace in the lobby to the dining room. The view of the ocean espectacular. The cleanliness of the room and the appointments in the room were comfortable and attractive.

Comfortable, clean space and great value! Short walk to the beach Pet friendly. My only issue was the screen door didn't lock so it wasn't safe for my little dog to keep the balcony door open. I felt very safe traveling alone and getting in late.

BWPlusAgate, General Manager at Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
Patricia, your dog's safety as much of a priority as yours, so we appreciate your helpful feedback! We will indeed discuss the screen door lock further to see what we can do. All of us at the Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn hope to welcome you back to our beautiful hotel next time you are in the area!

This hotel offers incredible beach access and clean, updated decor. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly from the moment you walk in the door. They allow dogs to be alone in the room while their owners enjoy the hotel amenities (pool, fitness room, and restaurant). There are three convenient outdoor dog areas complete with a paw-washing station. We will definitely be going back!

We loved our stay at this hotel! The beachfront access is wonderful! The beach is large and has soft sand. This hotel has been renovated in the last year or so and the rooms are beautiful. The colors and decor were very nice. Our check in process was done by a manager, Judy, who was very kind and welcoming. She let our kids pick out a small toy from the toy chest in the lobby. And she was very thoughtful in selecting a room that made it easy to access the parking lot via the skybridge. We were very comfortable in our room, the bathroom was nice and the shower had good water pressure. Our family is already planning on coming back and staying here soon!

The renovation they did to their hotel is very nice and modern. They are a pet friendly hotel and have the nicest goodies at check in for your pet. Everyone I met in the restaurant and front desk was friendly and helpful. Get an oceanview room, it is worth it. The sunsets are beautiful. They have screen doors on their patio doors so I slept with my patio door open every night to fall asleep to the ocean waves crashing. They serve really good food, my favorite was halibut fish and chips. I was here for a conference and I had a really good time. I hope to be able to return to this hotel again with my family and dog in the near future.

BWPlusAgate, General Manager at Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
We are happy we could make your stay during your conference so comfortable with our freshly renovated guest rooms and fabulous amenities.

The hotel itself is very nice, well renovated and has comfortable beds. The real prize though is the view of the ocean! From our room on the 5th floor, the view was nothing short of amazing. There is a restaurant on site, but other choices would likely have to be driven to, there's not a lot within walking distance. Maybe just get takeout and sit upstairs and watch the waves roll in.

My organization uses this hotel on a regular basis for large meetings and it is always accomodating with prices, service and has an ideal location. Always clean and upgraded furnishings. The only problem is the location of ADA rooms, should be closer to the lobby to reduce difficult walking the long hallways.

This hotel is updated with a soft seaside decor, great rooms, great view of the ocean (if booked that way) and best of all is pet friendly. Truman even got his own goodie bag and the rooms provide a "pet sheet" to cover the bed if your dog sleeps with you. The staff are very accommodating and the on-site restaurant has the BEST crab bisque chowder we have ever had. the staff gave us other recommendations for other great eating places so we dined on seafood the entire visit. there is an onsite swimming pool and workout facility. Rooms are clean and there is lots of parking. Would we stay again? Absolutely!!

Absolutely love this place we've become quite obsessed with checking out all Best Westerns, because they allow your entire family to come and that means yes your dogs.

As we drove up the hill to the hotel I was impressed by the landscape and exterior of the hotel. Looked much nicer than most BW hotels (which are nice enough). The reception area and check in are very nice, welcoming. Our room was comfortable, we asked for extra pillows and blankets and they were there when we arrived. We are elite members and were upgraded to a premium view without asking. Amazing ocean view, walking distance to the beach, friendly staff. We will definitely stay here again.

My son and I stayed at this hotel on a spring break outing. We traveled from Palm Springs to Lincoln City staying at hotels along the way.

We will totally be returning to this hotel in our future trips to the coast.

The hotel is beautiful and offers great views. The parking is limited close to the hotel but the is a sky bridge to the parking area for convenience. I really thought for the price there would be complimentary breakfast but there is not. Everything else was definately 5 Star rating though.

I ordered a $30 halibut dinner, fish tasted okay. but my sides, rice pilaf and broccolini tasted like butane. I tried to wash it down with my margarita but even that didn't taste like it should. Don't waist your taste buds here.

I absolutely love the Best Western Agate Beach hotel for its location and the beautiful views and decor. It is situated so that even the rooms on the east side (non-oceanfront) are shielded from noise from nearby highway 101 by a nice forested hillside. The beds are incredibly comfortable. The location is a bit farther south than I usually travel, but I go out of my way to stay here!

We enjoyed the location and comfy beds. Looking out to the beach and it is an easy walk to the beach as well. Very dog friendly. Will return. The only complaint we have was they do not offer the usual BW breakfasts. They do offer breakfast ( menu and fee) at their restaurant as they are not close to any other restaurants by foot.

We had no complaints. The whole check-in was speedy, i was added to the BW membership, had a great room, super easy to figure out how to call down to front desk (something surprisingly enough, that most hotels dont make that very clear lol) and get a roll out which arrived only minutes later by another smiling staff member. Each time i encountered staff they were smiling, and were always quick to make a suggestion regarding our stay, from which doors work best to get to our room, the ocean, pet areas ect. to letting us know which amenities were where and the stay was peaceful. At check-in she stated she only had 4 open rooms (I believe?), and thru the entire night we didnt hear anything from other rooms around us, from the hall - just peaceful. Glad we stayed here! If were back in the area, id stay here again, worth the stay.

I had a nice room. I paid more for ocean view. It was worth it. Close to beach to walk and a great beach. Not much otherwise close by so you'll have to drive to restaurants. My suggestions for this site is get better toilet paper and better pillows. Room very clean. Nice hallways. Staff friendly. Decent exercise room. Nice looking pool though I didn't get in it. In Room coffee ok.

Always fan of Best Western. This property is easily accessible, the staff desk was very friendly and let us check in at 9:30am, which was great.

"Best Western Gift Cards are a Scam"

User 21/02/2019

I received a Best Western gift card for Christmas and thought it would be nice to treat my boyfriend to a trip for Valentine's Day. I called the Best Western Agate Beach Inn and tried to book using only the gift card. They said I needed to book with a credit card, so I went online and booked via my travel rewards center for my credit card. I had 24 hours to cancel the booking. 12 hours later, I noticed a charge on my bank account and I called the Best Western Agate Beach Inn. They assured me that it was just a hold charge and would not process until I arrived, also reassuring me that I can use my Best Western gift card. For that reason, I did not cancel the booking or question the charge. When we arrived to the Agate Beach Inn, we were told that because the website we booked on went through Expedia.com and that our card was already charged. We could not refund it and we could not use our Best Western gift card (the reason we came on the trip). We were then offered to use it for room service, which was a disaster in itself. We called room service to ask if we can use a Best Western gift card. They did not know the answer and had to call the front desk and then call us back. They said we can. We ordered room service, they came and took our card down to the lobby and ran it. They brought the receipt to me and I signed the receipt. Upon checkout, they said we did not pay for our room service bill and asked us to pay again. Once we provided a copy of the original receipt, they said it never was charged and had to run our Best Western gift card again, because the original payment was not processed. No one knew how to use the gift card. They had to write down the number and deliver the receipt to us an hour later, just to put the pet fee on the card. We left our vacation with $290 left on a $400 gift card when we thought we were getting a paid for weekend for Valentine's Day.

BWPlusAgate, General Manager at Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to provide us a detailed review of your experience. It is disheartening to hear of the troubles you encountered. I understand you booked through another agency which is why our hotel was unable to access your reservation and apply your gift card for the balance. The staff will indeed be made aware when giving information to our guests about booking using a gift card to specify the reservations must be made through the hotel itself. I am glad you were able to utilize it for room service, even though it appears we fell short on making it a seamless transaction. I will be delighted to ensure our team is knowledgeable in regards to our gift cards and how to successfully use them. We certainly can appreciate your frustration with expecting a paid for valentine weekend, and we apologize for all of the confusion, but we would love one more chance to restore your trust next time you plan a getaway!

Visited during a weekday for lunch. Chicken nacho was fantastic, beer was cold and server Betsy was very professional and accommodating, and that is very rare in this local area. Many improvements happening here. Hands-on management is obvious. Would be eager to use the outside patio area once the weather is tame.

I stay with Best Western as much as I can, points member and everything. My last stay was less than poor but this time made up for the bad impression. Still a miss on the continental breakfast not included but maybe time, and customers will sway that a little. I did enjoy the room service! Great service and friendly staff and very peaceful and quiet this time. With the room service we didn't leave the room for 24 hours! I work hard long hours and time away with no disturbances is just what I needed. It was winter this time but we will come back in the summer and see if it is the same.

"Overpriced & no continental breakfast!"

User 09/02/2019

Wow. I really like Best Western, was disappointed after check in to hear no continental breakfast. Yep. Pay at their restaurant. I look forward to BW for this and good bedding. Ok it was a pretty building and newer decor. The room. SMALL BATHROOM, tiny disappointing products. Citrus smell was good but cheaper quality. We paid extra for an oceanfront. Umm... Still pretty far from the ocean with grounds taking up the property & a road and sand. It was distant. Not an ideal ocean front. Boo. Cheap quality tea (Lipton) and coffee was just ok. The bedding. YES YES. COMFY PILLOWS! In a nutshell, way overpriced and all ya get is nice bedding.

User 08/02/2019

The rooms are always clean and quiet. Checked in after dark and stepped in dog poo on the sidewalk while walking in from the upper parking deck. We have two Danes (which were not with us) but we would never leave their waste on a sidewalk for someone to step in... Please be responsible pet owners!

Thank you for the review. We are delighted you found your stay to be pleasant, and you enjoyed our beautifully renovated rooms. I can certainly understand your frustration with the sidewalk, and we will do our best to remind our guests of their responsibility. Revisit us all at the Best Western Agate Plus Beach Inn next time you are in town!

Laura R, Vacaville, United States 03/02/2019

Room had soft comfy beds and lots of pillows. Roll away was also comfy. The view is just beautiful, and we were comped because it was my birthday! The service was excellent throughout the hotel and restaurant. The restaurant and bar are very nice with great beach views, sitting outside for warm days and fireplace indoors for cooler days! Prices are great!

Laura, it was a delight having you with us at the Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn to celebrate your special day.

"Come Here for the View, Not the Beach Glass Bistro"

Overall not bad, the front desk staff were very nice and check-in was a breeze. BW is getting a little tired, they need to update their bedding and amenities to match the fantastic view and scenery at Agate Beach. Agate Beach property is fairly nice, but it is certainly not spa like. We were there at a quiet time and it was noisy, with dogs barking, people talking loudly, including cleaning staff using the telephone in the next room and talking very loud and we could hear everything she was saying (i.e. personal issues). Terrible shame that the attached restaurant wasn't better, as it would make an evening of dinner and drinks so easy, Unfortunately, the Beach Glass Bistro was easily overwhelmed at breakfast, and at dinner had the worst Halibut and Chips, that it had to be sent back. Although the other entries were fine.

The nicest hotel we stayed at riding down the Oregon coast, the restaurant and outdoor patio were great, we could view the beach from where we sat, very clean and comfortable room. There is plenty of parking, but the main area is up on the rise away from the view of the lobby.

This hotel was the gem of our Oregon coast trip and a pleasant surprise. Excellent location, clean, neat, friendly staff. Not your typical Best Western.

"Not what we were looking for in a romantic getaway"

User 31/12/2018

The hotel was nice, and the room was clean and comfortable, but it's not what we expected. We were looking for a place on the beach, and this hotel is across the street and up the hill from the water. The distance, coupled with street noise, made it difficult to enjoy the sound of the sea from the room. Tho the daytime view was lovely, the balcony is barely wide enough to stand on; there is no way to sit outside and enjoy the view. And the restaurant (we had breakfast) was mediocre.Definitely not what we were looking for for our 25th anniversary.

BWPlusAgate, General Manager at Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
We appreciate you taking the time to offer us a review of your stay. It is disheartening to learn we did not meet your expectations in every way. While I am happy you found our freshly renovated rooms to be beautiful, it is unfortunate you were not able to fully enjoy the beach views and sounds. We appreciate your feedback on the balcony, and please feel free to check out the scenery from our patio in the restaurant next time. I will also discuss your input with the chef to ensure a more perfect meal in the future. We would love another chance to improve your perception.

As much as we loved BW in Hood River, this was again just as few months ago our favorite hotel during our 10-days trip. Originally we were given a room on a 5th floor but after husband mentioned that during our last stay we really enjoyed staying on a sixth floor, front desk lady found a room on a sixth floor! I loved everything about this hotel – their décor, their furniture, their layout, their wide hallways ending with a great view and most of all the breathtaking view from our room. They do not offer free breakfast so we had breakfast at Sea Glass Bistro downstairs. This was very mixed experience. First, our waitress was not very attentive. After we got seated, she walked by us several times during 10 minutes period without acknowledging us. While she was serving other tables, it would've been nice if she offered some coffee. Our food was hit and misses. My eggs over easy with hash brown and bacon were perfect. My husband's eggs Benedict with house-smoked salmon were not the best. His eggs were overcooked to the point of being almost hard-boiled. Salmon while abundant did not have much flavor. While we are definitely planning to stay in this hotel again, we will be eating somewhere else. With so many options in Newport, why suffer service and not so great food?

Len M, North Bend, Oregon 26/12/2018

We made reservations at this Best Western Plus property with the expectations of enjoying a beach front property. We paid extra for a view room. We are Elite members of the Best Western group and expect the service promised. 1. Although just remodeled we found several defects in the room that a little attention would have fixed. 2. Free breakfast is a given to Elite members but not at this property. Offered pancakes and bacon at $5 each.We went to McDonalds. 3.We were given a 5th floor room with a good view but you have to enter the top floors from Skybridge in a remote, parking lot with no security and not protected from the rain. We will stay elsewhere next time.

travelguy51_9, portland,oregon 10/12/2018

My wife and I were there the weekend after Thanksgiving ( Saturday and Sunday night) and stayed on a top floor room with an ocean view. First, I highly recommend a top floor room as the main parking lot is up there and if you're staying up there you don't need to take the elevator up to get out. First, the two reasons I'm not giving it 5 out 5. The first is the lack of obvious recycling, either in the lobby or the room; that always marks a place down for me. The other is the small bathroom. That's it; everything else about the place we liked. We had room 624 with an ocean view; speaking of which, you need to realize the place across the street and slightly up a hill from the ocean. You won't be right on top of the ocean. I felt it was close enough however. We also had a really tiny balcony we could step out on to get a better view and enjoy the sound of the ocean as well. Our room had a king bed with lamps on both sides. I appreciated the plugins on the lamps; always nice and easy to plug in anything. There were a couple of nice chairs near the window as well, to go along with the desk chair. It was a nice, large room also. I was disappointed that breakfast wasn't included, but we had a decent breakfast at the restaurant and a really good dinner our first night as well. Here I must make special mention of Teri, the bartender who took good care of us, answered questions about the dinner menu and the drinks we wanted. She was friendly and attentive; if you are down there, make sure you have her help you. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would definitely come back.

This inn has been completely refurbished, and previous problems resolved. The price is steeper than similar motels but the view on the ocean side is tremendous, and there are few comparable facilities in Newport. The beds were quite comfortable and the room was laid out nicely.

The staff was very friendly, our server was washa. she greeted us with a smile and was very attentive to our needs while balancing multiple tables. We had the pleasure of meeting the restaurant manager during our breakfast. Lindsey was a delight and very friendly. We had eggs benedict, and we all know that a hard yolk can ruin a good eggs Benny. We were very pleased, our mail came out hot and fresh. We will recommend this restaurant to all of our visiting friends and family. I am already looking forward to our next visit!

""Ocean View Rooms" aren't always much of a view"

3
User 27/11/2018

I requested and paid the higher rate for an ocean view room to celebrate my mother's 85th birthday and give her a treat of watching the ocean without a lot of walking. The room we were assigned was 232, end of the hall on the 1st level of rooms, next to the swimming pool entrance. Also happens to be a handicap room, which we did not request, maybe because in the reservation notes I said her age? Anyway, I had chosen middle of the week, thinking less busy but turns out the hotel is also a conference center, and the hotel was fully booked and so they said this was the only "ocean view" room. My advice is to request a higher floor room because the beach is not just outside the hotel, you must walk down the hill, across a road, and then across a very wide beach to get to the ocean. also, there are small hills and tall trees between the hotel and beach, so our view was obstructed by that vegetation. We could just see one little piece of the ocean off to the right. Additionally, the hotel is isolated on the far north end of town. After visiting Newport, if I wanted beach and view, I would next time book in the Nye Beach area of town where there are restaurants, shops aplenty, and beach access right out the door. There is a restaurant on premises of this hotel, and guests receive a 15% discount coupon for all meals there, which is good because the crab cocktail retails $19 for the typical small serving. The next morning, we had breakfast at the 24 hour local's favorite Newport Cafe where I saw I could have enjoyed an entire crab dinner for $20! I do however recommend the hotel restaurant's chocolate cake, the only really wonderful thing about our stay at Agate Beach Inn.

The motel is located in a quiet spot at the edge of town. It is quite large, 6 floors, but it was quiet. Everything looked brand new. We will stay there again. The beach access was very nice, basically like a private beach access. Our room did not have an ocean view but many did.

We are both employees of best Western, so we were happy with the quality of the rooms etc. There were some maintenance issues that needed to be addressed, such as the elevator button on the 4th floor was loose and hanging off the wall but over all the place is very well maintained. Our room was beautiful! The restaurant staff was wonderful but the prices were a little high and the menu limited, overall we were very please with our trip!

"Nice conference facility - clean - pet-friendly"

workdog1, Falls City, Oregon 08/10/2018

Stayed a couple of nights while attending a conference held at the hotel. The conference rooms were perfect for our group, and hospitality staff were attentive. Interior of hotel has been remodeled since our last stay, and it looks great. Room was very clean and comfortable. Dining room/restaurant appeared to be closed during our stay, and the food we ordered through room service was just average. Luckily, there is no shortage of restaurants in town! I love that there are nice pet-friendly rooms at this hotel, as seeing dogs and their families out enjoying the beach made the business trip a bit more fun. We like to take weekend trips with our own dog and will very likely stay at this BW if Newport is our destination.

The recent remodel of this BW made a great place even better!! We love coming here, perfect location, great service and pet friendly! Our state organization will definitely come back here again! They have a wonderful conference service for medium to large groups! The food is also very well done!

This is truly a top-notch hotel. From the custodians to the maids,, to the manager, to the owner you can tell that the staff takes pride in their work and the facility. We were warmly greeted by the desk clerk, treated to a wine tasting hosted and served by the owner, and accommodated at evey turn by friendly helpful people. The decore of the hotel was fantastic (it had been newly renovated), The room was well appointed, clean, attractive, and comfortable, The amenities are excellent with a restaurant and a nice little exercise room. Facility is located within a very reasonable distance to stores and restaurants downtown and has excellent beach access. Some rooms have ocean views but all guests will find comfortable chairs and large windows in the public areas where one can relax and enjoy a glass of wine while seeing magnificent ocean views. One of the best hotels we stayed at during a 3 week trip to Oregon..

I really liked the hotel overall, rooms were very clean and updated. The staff that worked during the conference were fast and friendly. I would have liked better service in the bistro and espresso bar. Also, beach access was poor.

My husband and I stayed the night here while we were meeting family, and the staff were very helpful when we were having car trouble. I accidentally ran my battery out and the staff were nice enough to call Triple AAA for me. You definitely won't be disappointed!

lovetheORshore, Corvallis, Oregon 29/09/2018

Stayed with my husband and sister for a night, when we arrived (after check-in time of 4:00 p.m.) our room was not ready - many other guests were in the same predicament. Hotel staff couldn't tell us when the room would be available, so we went to the Yaquina Head Lighthouse to kill some time. No offer of any sort of compensation for the inconvenience. The room was basic, comfortable. The view was ok but you are not right on the beach. We are Best Western rewards members, so have stayed at quite a few Best Westerns over the years - this one was subpar.

User 28/09/2018

Loved the decor and room. Lobby is very attractive and welcoming. We were very disappointed the one day out of three that we requested our room be cleaned. The bed was made and requested towels were replaced, but nothing else. The bathroom was not touched and I was shocked.

User 23/09/2018

I enjoyed the hotel and the front desk staff service. However, we had to request our rollaway twice after arrival even though it was part of the reservation. Likewise, had to request an extra blanket twice before it arrived. What I don't like is the beach this hotel sits on. 4-6 foot dunes all the way to the water line - no flat places to run and play, which is both irritating and exhausting to walk on. (Certainly no fault of the hotel - just a fact of the location)

This hotel has the most impressive staff and rooms that I've stayed in the Best Western Hotel group in Oregon!!! The rooms are clean, beautiful, and your views are either of the beach or the trees. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The staff, from the hostess to the housekeeping staff - you have a family of professionals!!! I'll be back!!!

"Nice rooms- short staffed?"

3
Kimgeenie, Grants Pass, Oregon 20/09/2018

The rooms are nice, some with ocean views. It indicates ocean front, however it is a little walk to the beach including crossing a road before you actually are on the beach. There was a conference happening with a lot of confusion at check in. Rooms were not ready on check in, however it appeared they had been cleaned once someone actually went and looked. Lots of strange glitches that are unusual for a best western. Credit cards declined, door keys not working, room had some items missing. All of these were taken care of but it definitely was not a fun experience. May have been unique, but it certainly did not create a very welcoming atmosphere. I will look to stay elsewhere my next visit to Newport.

User 17/09/2018

The staff was so rude. My husband is the chief engineer at a hotel in a large metropolitan city. Neither of us could get over how rude the staff at this hotel were. The check-in was troubled as well. We were given a cheaper room than the one we paid for. That had to be corrected and took half an hour to remedy. To make matters worse there was a beach party in front of the hotel that had loud music that rocked out late into the night. They wouldn't do anything to address the noise. We will never stay here again.

Judy K, General Manager at Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
I am so sorry that there was a problem with your check in, My staff is usually very friendly so I apologize. We had no idea there would be a party on the beach and they were not guests of our hotel so it was out of our control to do anything about it. I am very sorry that this took place and disrupted your stay, I feel very bad that you left our hotel feeling the way your did. Again I apologize. Judy

TheCheerfulGivers, Vancouver, Washington 14/09/2018

This was our second stay at this location, and we were blessed with a wonderful view! We had the first room on the right as you come up the small ramp. Our room was handicap-accessible and was well set up for my needs. The view was spectacular! Previously we had stayed further down the hall with an okay view, The beach is just a short walk away. Newport is just south, and there is a Walmart within minutes of the Inn. We went to Walmart and bought breakfast items since there was not a complimentary breakfast. This worked well for us. There is so much to do in Newport and north and south a little way. The Inn is set back from the road so there is not the highway noise. The staff was friendly.

Calequestrian13, Eugene, Oregon 09/09/2018

I booked using reward points. I noticed that I did not add my two small dogs. So I called the 800# and they advised that they had added it. Upon check in I told them about the dogs because the pet fee was not on there. Turns out there were no pet rooms. The front desk lady got her manager Isaac and he was so kind and let me have a non pet room and waived the cleaning fee. Both our dogs are housebroken so I was not worried. So that was the first positive. Our room was spacious and very comfortable and the staff was wonderful! We did not have an ocean view room but just go to the lounge and you get a great view! Right across street is the beach! I would stay there again! They have 3 pet areas and they supply bags too!

SLiebbe, Loudon, TN 08/09/2018

During our recent trip to OR, we fell in love with this property. The location was great and the view from our view (even though it was foggy a lot, was great). The room was extremely comfortable - King Size Bed and I lovely bathroom. We had dinner elsewhere but came back and order a chocolate sundae from the restaurant to take back to our room that really hit the spot. We also attended the Wine Tasting in the afternoon.

"Loved it!"

Good location, great food, comfortable clean rooms, free wine tasting and very friendly staff! Check in was quick and easy as was checking out! The only negative was the automatic 19% tip for larger groups in the restaurant. We tipped as normal and then found out the tips we left were based on the plus 19%.

LauraVolkers, Den Helder, The Netherlands 25/08/2018

This hotel doesn't live to the standards of WB -Plus! The greater part of the deskpersonnel is uninterested. We got a room on the 6th floor, near the entrance of the parking. It was horrifying! The room itself would have been OK, But it was under the ventilation and airco engines on the top of the roof over our heads. It was like having a lorry running in the room.The smells from the kitchen made it impossible to open a door which led to what whas called a balcony: 30 cm of space outside your room, no place to sit. The smell came in both ways, as the door to the parking was open almost all the time,the whole hallway stank! We complained and asked for another room. At first this seemed impossible, (rude staff except one lady who was temporarily added from the office!) after we insisted on seeing the manager another room was found. slightly better, allthough at the backside of the hotel smell from the kitchen is persistant! The luggage lorries cause war at times as there are by far not enough. I had to go to three different floors in order to obtain some ice. If you stay here: ask for as room at the front . If you don't like dogs: don't go there at all, they are all over the place.

"Beautiful BW on the Oregon Coast"

WheelingTraveler, Chicago, Illinois 23/08/2018

This is another one-night stay BW on my Oregon coast tour. It has six floors and the parking lot above connected to the top floor via a cross-walk above the parking lot below. This BW has a modern look and it could be built or renovated recently. My room was very good size, comfortable with nice beds during my stay. But unlike most BW, this one does not have guest laundry room. This is only the second BW I ran into that has no self-serve laundry, the other one is in Quebec City. It also does not include free breakfast, and I did not use their restaurant as there were plenty good choices in the Newport city. I had an ocean view room on the top floor and the beach area is very large and long across the road at the bottom floor. I simply drove my car there and park right next to the beach. A Walmart is adjacent to this hotel so you can get supplies easily.

"Nice location, nice hotel, but ask about renovations"

Christena D, Portland, Oregon 22/08/2018

I loved the location (outside of town but a only short drive to get back to the restaurants etc.) and the room was lovely. Sixth floor oceanfront room had a nice view of the beach and the ocean. If you are looking for a balcony where you can sit, however, this is not the place -- there is a sliding glass door and a tiny balcony that allows you to step outside, but it's not large enough to sit outside. The beach itself is very wide, and it's a long way to the ocean over undulating dunes, so keep that in mind if you plan to spend a lot of time on the beach, especially if going with people who might have trouble with the walk. It's hard to get to the firmer part of the beach near the water. One really nice thing about the sixth floor is that, due to the location of the hotel against a hillside, there is an upper parking area with a skywalk across directly to the sixth floor, so we didn't have to use elevator or stairs with our luggage. They are just finishing up renovations on the hotel -- it looks great! -- but we encountered some issues with noise in our room due to workmen on the roof. If staying on the sixth floor soon (late August 2018), you might want to ask about this if you were planning to sleep in. Otherwise, we loved the hotel and would definitely go back there.

We stayed one night last week on a road trip. The hotel is immaculate and very well renovated. What a refreshing treat. It is on agate beach however it is high on a slope and might be hard for people with disabilities to reach. Nevertheless the hotel is lovely. Our only regret is there is no breakfast is included as with other Best Westerns.

We were so impressed by the Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn. When we walked in, we were welcomed by friendly staff and management. The hotel is in exceptional condition and the rooms are clean, modern and comfortable. It has a salt water pool and access directly to the miles of beach. We were invited to happy hour where we met the manager Judy, and had a glass of wine to relax and meet other guests in their lounge after a long day of riding down the picturesque OR coast. Then we walked the sandy beach before we had an amazing meal in the hotel restaurant. It was the most relaxing stay we had on our trip. The hotel is pet friendly and I enjoyed cuddling all the pooches that were enjoying their vacation. Also the hotel is located within minutes from Walmart. This is definitely an agate on the road with its amazing location, excellent faciltity and fri3endly staff. We definitely recommend this hotel to all our friends and will stay here again on our next bike trip.

User 12/08/2018

We stayed here only for one night and it was a last minute drive by booking. The hotel is practically on the beach! I would've lived to stay in one of their ocean view rooms because it looked marvelous. we walked less than a minute to the beach and loved every minute of it We used the pool and hot tub and everything was nice and clean. the room was really nice and clean. Loved the wine glass served in the lobby in the evening.

maleficent84mfg, Grants Pass, Oregon 10/08/2018

The hotel is absolutely beautiful and I'm sure when they arnt doing construction the grounds are too. I did a pre check in the day prior and stated I would be in between 4 and 6pm. We arrived at 5pm and our room wasn't even ready. After traveling all day with a 1.5 year old that was a HUGE let down. They would call us when it was ready. We decided to find a place to eat. At 6 they finally call and say that our original room wasn't ready but another one was so they put us in there. We came back and finally got checked in. The hotel decor all around is beautiful and the room was defiantly spacious. My first complaint is that the screen did not have a locking mechanism and that's a major safety issue when children are involved. The second is there were foreign hairs in the tub that went ours. Third is the mini fridge, even on max, never got really cold. Lastly, the restaurant is not very good. Plus they are really slow and don't have very good time management. We walked in and they acknowledged us, but then proceeded to fill orange juice glasses, then fill some water pitchers, walk around and do other things behind the bar and 3 minutes later finally seated us. The biscuits and gravy was salted heavily and the pancake was rubbery. Save your money and eat elsewhere. One final thing, there is a road between you and the beach and it's quite busy, so don't plan on opening your windows at night to sleep. You will get road noise with hints of ocean. Overall, I would try and find somewhere else to stay. At this price and for it being a plus, I expected a lot more.

"Poor condition"

User 08/08/2018

The price charged for a room exceeds the condition of the room. I would not recommend staying in this hotel until after its remodeling, to commence in November 2017, is completed. Some rooms have bulging leaks with unknown contents in ceiling over the bed. Drawers in chests are missing, equipment is broken or inoperable.

I had not stayed here before and was unsure what to expect, but can highly recommend this hotel for its amenities and service. My room had a spectacular view of Agate Beach, was large and comfortable and reasonably priced for the time of year. Staff service was excellent, parking easy and plentiful, good food ( and great view) in the restaurant. I would use this hotel again in a heartbeat - super experience.

User 06/08/2018

The room was scented to say the least. Smelled like fabric softner/carpet fresh was used. Very Nice 1st impression. Rooms were clean, except our tub had nasty hair on the ledge. The view was impressive with the ocean roaring away. No breakfast unless you want to pay for it. Beds were comfortable, pillows were better than most hotels, rooms were quiet enjoyed our stay there. Be warned there is no washer or dryer on site. If you need to get clothes washed, this is not where it is going to happen. There are some laundry places in town, but they looked scary.

"Average with a twist."

BigChickenDinner, Salem, Oregon 31/07/2018

They have pet friendly rooms, so that is a plus. However, for the price, they shouldn't be that dirty. Visible stains on walls, mildew that has been partially painted over in closet and visible grime with a sticky spot on the arm of the chair. Why don't I ever call the desk when I find stuff like that? Because they pay someone to maintain that level cleanliness on a daily basis. The pool and gym were full of unruly screamin and unsupervised children whenever I saw them. Staff were not inclined to do anything about it. Gripes aside, the nice twist to my story is the restaurant. What a surprise! Not amazing to look at, but the food and service were excellent! We were very pleased and encourage them to keep doing what they are doing! The location is wonderful as well, right across the street from beach access. Agate beach is great. Lots of room to roam with kids and pets. No matter the weather, there are always folks on the beach. Rooms on the ocean side have an excellent view of Yaquina Head and the lighthouse. Wal Mart is very close by for stocking up during your travels or grabbing whatever you left at home. Bottom line, I'll give them another chance, just not in a pet room.

"One of the few exceptions amongst the chain hotels."

Jeremyka_11, Vancouver, Washington 30/07/2018

I'm going to tell it like it is. Since the time I was little, Best Western has had a reputation amongst many as being a hotel that's as average as the C on a math test. I've stayed at Best Westerns here and there many times through the years. You could do better, you could do worse. Priced middle of the road. Not luxury, but will get you by....etc. This location tries its best to be just a little better, and surprisingly, accomplishes this for the most part. It's important to understand the nuance between an Oceanfront, ocean view and partial ocean view room. Read about your room carefully when booking. The idea is, the higher the floor, the less obstructed your view in the rooms facing the ocean. The room we were assigned to (initially) was a partial ocean view. We weren't understanding that partial view meant obstructed by trees or other man made buildings. Fortunately, the staff were understanding of our preferences, and were happy to move us to a higher floor with no additional costs. We felt it went above and beyond and is a good example of what customer service should be. This was not only true of the front desk, but the entire staff who were professional, courteous, and made us feel welcome. The beach is a hop skip and jump away from the hotel. On foot, maybe two minutes away. The hotel pool and spa were nice and clean. The hallways had tasteful and understated photos and artwork that were nice atmospherically. The inside of the rooms looked as if they were a bit older, but they certainly weren't dirty. Perhaps a minor facelift would improve the interiors but they were quiet and comfortable. A little expensive in peak season, but worth it for its proximity to The Oregon Coast Aquarium, The Yaquina Lighthouse area, Moolack Shores, Agate Beach and many other desirable places. Would gladly stay again. If not perfect, it's undeniably charming here.

1.The room was not clean. When we checked in the Rm 316, there was area of about 10cmX10cm which had cheese and food residues. It was close to the end of the bed. So it was open area and easy to see. We found a few more small pieces of food residues at other places on the floor. 2. The follow-up cleaning was not satisfied. We called the front desk for the cleaning. The housekeeping staff came maybe 10 min later. We requested to vacuum the whole floor to make sure it is clean. But the staff only vacuumed some parts and left quickly. I had to call her back and found the doormat was not clean as well. Then I requested her to vacuum the doormat and room floor again. 3. The housekeeping staff showed pissed off and yelled

The rooms here are all beautifully remodeled since we last stayed here (2 years ago). Wow, what a difference! They have more plugs throughout the room, which was a great and helpful feature. The beds are clean & comfortable. The table is smaller and there is one less chair, so we were disappointed about that. Highly recommend the ocean view rooms - the view is absolutely spectacular, including the view of the Yaquina Head Lighthouse. The beach access is great - it is an easy walk to it! The staff is just fantastic - everyone we encountered was friendly and accommodating. We stay here when we are able to visit Newport (after having tried several other hotels).

Great place to stay; almost like brand-new given the renovations done. A bit secluded off Hwy 101 but near Newport and other great places to visit besides the beach walking. pet-friendly, relatively quiet, clean. Dining experience could improve with the wait staff and the menu was not bad but still pricey, given that this place doesn't offer continental breakfast. It does offer an Espresso Bar, indoor pool and exercise facilities. Loved the view - booked the room thru Expedia - but we had an unmarked room on the 5th floor. Still was nice. K-size bed with lots of pillows and clean, nice bathroom. It is also pet-friendly.

I mentioned that at check out and was told to request a quiet room next time.The room door to ours and the room next doesn't shut correcly so it was quite loud. The toilet seat was cracked . (They're not that expensive) Our linens were stained upon arrival. Staff promply brought new but that shouldn't have been necessary. The service in thé resteraunt was great but thé food was NOT at all for thé price.

We went opened the sliding glass door and it immediately slid back shut, so we went back to the front desk and asked for a door stop. They said they would call maintenance. We went back to our room and started examining things because we started to get a sinking feeling. Sure enough, there was a huge water stain on the ceiling above the toilet, which proceeded to drip on my head as I looked up. We went back downstairs and they moved us to another room. This new room was much smaller with no couch. No offer was made to adjust our price when it was obviously a less expensive room. This hotel was recently remodeled, but the closer we looked, the more it just appeared that nothing was repaired or replaced, just slathered with a fresh coat of paint. The 2 arm chairs in our room were stained and dirty, too gross to even sit in. When we visited the bars, the bartender did not make drinks in front of us on the bar, but rather with his back to us. He would take bottles of the shelf, and then make drink in a corner cover with his arms and the bottles out of view of the entire bar. I found this strange and immediately fishy. My Stoli and soda tasted watered down or like an off brand was put into a Stoli bottle. My husband's long island was a dark as a glass of straight coke, and it tasted like sweet and sour and coke. The next morning, my husband wanted some milk with his oreos, and when he opened the fridge, every single thing in there was frozen solid: a half gallon of milk, salsa, guacamole, soda, chocolate milk, our 2 salads, and restaurant leftovers. Completely frozen solid and entirely ruined. At least $20 worth of food. I called downstairs and they offered to send maintenance up there, but I declined saying that I wasn't in the mood for company. My husband turned down the fridge setting. Emily called our room and apologized just for how many issues we encountered, and said she would credit us back 50% of our stay, which I thought was reasonable. Come to find out, they only credited us 50% of the first night only which did not begin to appease our disappointment. We are a young, hard-working couple, and getting away from our 4 kids for a weekend happens about once a year. It was a terrible experience, and I plan on calling the GM and pursuing this matter further.

This is a beautiful facility. Nice fresh decor. Restaurant and bar in hotel. Walking distance to Walmart and other shopping. Fabulous views. Beach access for enjoyable beach combing Staff was great. Beds very comfortable. Ocean view rooms have patio sliding doors that can be opened to enjoy the sea air and sound of the surf. We plan to return in the future

We loved this hotel! I would say that this was our favorite hotel during our 25 days trip. We got spacious king room on a 6th floor with unbelievable view of a beach and a lighthouse. It was newly remodeled with tasteful and clean contemporary décor and functional open layout. Front desk service was friendly and helpful. They have upper-level parking lot so we could walk directly to our 6th floor room using a sky-walk. They do not offer free breakfast but have a coffee maker in each room.

We had room on 6th floor Room was very nice, ocean view and king bed. What a view!!!!! We could see the light house and ocean Room was Large and very nice You need to park on upper parking and walk across short open sky bridge to enter the 6th floor entry to rooms in thru corridor. Hotel north of Town which is nice There is a Safeway, Fred Meyers, and Walmart just across highway. You do not get a free breakfast, but they have s small restaurant and bar. We chose to eat else where. Prices for breakfast not to bad but prices for dinner expensive Staff was very nice and helpful

We stayed here for rwo nights. We absokutely can recommand this place and would also recommand taking a room with ocean view. We were in the forth floor and the view was stunning! The room was newly renovated and had a great bed.the poolarea was nice (nicer than on the pictures). Especially to mention is the restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly. All over it was a really relaxing stay and if we would live closer, we would book a room just for having a relaxing weekend. Unfortunately, we live too fare away to do it.

Reigo, Seattle, Washington 08/06/2018

First time here, but we always stay at Best Western on our road trips. This place is right off of Highway 101 just outside Newport Oregon. The place looks new, and very clean and modern. Very large public places, that open out to the great views of the ocean. The rooms are new, large and very clean. We had a west facing room with great views of the Pacific Ocean. We ate at the Sea Glass Bistro, and found it odd that there was no way for a handicapped person to get down the steps into the restaurant. Other than that this place gets five stars!

Grey haired older guy (restaurant manager) needs to attend to his guests in turn. Rather than looking for tips at the large party tables and totally ignoring bar customers. Saw a party of 4 wait 20 minutes for a drink and leave in disgust. We stayed and waited 30 minutes to be served by a lady who was great. Have a word with grey guy and all will be well...!??

Beautiful Ocean view from room we were on fourth floor. Room has recently been remodeled and is very nice and crispy clean. But apparently they have not yet replaced the beds. Which made it stink! The reason you are staying there is for sleep. The bed was lumpy and have huge indents. The front desk said that they were going to be replacing them soon. Other then that was a good stay and will go back but ask for new bed suite.

The hotel is at a perfect location, right on the sandy beach. It was not crowded and is newly remodeled. I was even confident to walk on the carpet in my bar feet! The hotel manager was fantastic and the bar and restaurant staff were very friendly and accommodating. The lounge and restaurant were combined, which was odd as there is a separate restaurant that was closed. The balcony does not fit any kind of seating. Other than that, the pool is beautiful, there is amazing views in the outside restaurant seating area, and the food was amazing! Will stay again!

While staying at the Best Western Plus in Newport, Oregon with my Nana on our road trip from Palm Springs to Seattle every accommodation we asked for was made it was the best hotel we stayed at along the 101. The staff greeted us with a smile and gave us anything we needed and more, a wheelchair to walk down to the beach and use to walk the town and a stool for the shower. We also loved "The Sea Glass" restaurant located in the hotel delicious fresh seafood and amazing breakfast!

I travel frequently for business and am a Diamond elite rewards card holder. I recently used my rewards points to book three days at the Agate Beach property for my wife and myself along with our daughter , her husband their two children, and our two families Beagles. We booked sea view rooms. Those room views are spectacular along with the wonderful sound of the surf crashing onto the beach it makes for a wonderful restful sleep. It is a short walk from the hotel to the flawless sandy beach that stretches for about 500 meters. Nearby is a now closed lighthouse and state park that we visited with views that are best described as breath taking. The hotel presents very well and has recently been renovated. There is a full restaurant and bar in the facility, and a very friendly and efficient staff that could not have done more to make our stay more comfortable and welcoming. I cannot say enough about the hotel and nearby community of Newport Oregon and will gladly recommend this facility to all as one of Best Westerns premier facilities. Terry Hayman Langley BC

"Beautiful hotel but missing some basics"

VIMom, Vancouver Island 23/05/2018

Pros: Price was great, $135 for ocean view. Bed super comfy. Amazing view. Room clean, staff super friendly. Cons: no breakfast, first Best Western I've stayed at without it. Bathroom amenities only included a tiny bottle of shampoo and 2 soaps, no conditioner or lotion. Bathroom door is a barn door, no lock and no way to shut it tightly, really didn't like this design feature. Path to beach you had to cross over water, they had a narrow log to get to the beach. If you had balance issues you'd be in trouble. Overall would stay again as the view and price were great. Would gladly pay an extra $20 for breakfast and amenities though.

Judy K, General Manager at Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review and I am so sorry, Your room should have had the shampoo & conditioner in it! We are currently in the process of adding the lotion.

I was charged an extra $20 for ocean view on weekday night, and breakfast was not included. I had stayed all week in coastal hotels that were nicer with no extra charge for ocean view and they included breakfast. The room was clean, bed comfortable, but balcony small and the view was blocked by wall and trees.

I researched a LOT of hotels in Newport, OR before finally choosing this one. We have a small dog that was also coming along for the trip so we needed a pet friendly room, but i was afraid of ending up with a stinky dog room. This hotel exceeded all expectations I had. The room was gorgeous. We had an ocean view, top floor , and pet friendly. They even left a pet sheet, and dog bone on the bed for our little one. The room had no scent at all of pets previously being in there and was very clean. My husband and I were very happy with our stay and will definitely be returning soon.

Other than check-in/check-out staff who were great, the other staff was not so. It took 15 mins to get an answer on do I need a reservation for buffet(witch DON'T do the buffet it was laughable for $36!! half that maybe, It's best western not Bellagio, or the Ritz). The bartender took my order then served 2 others first, then I asked how much & stood there for 5 mins with $$ out, then just walked out.

I had never stayed at the BW in Newport and it was great. They are in the middle of a remodel but, it was soooo worth it. The room was fresh and clean and the ocean view king room was perfect. I don't think you could get closer to the beach. I won't be staying anywhere else from here on out!

We have stayed several time at the Agate Beach location. This visit was after their amazing updates. The room, dog friendly, was clean, comfortable and had a wonderful beach view. I loved that the beds and pillows were so comfortable. I have noticed on some other hotels, the dog friendly rooms have the worse beds and not clean. BW was amazing with clean, comfortable rooms. The restaurant update and food was exceptional. Loved the food and enjoyed the view from the restaurant. Highly recommend the hotel and restaurant.

Tim S, Eugene, Oregon 28/04/2018

I was there the night of 4/27/18. The place is being updated. I have to say this is the very finest Best Western I've ever been in. The decore' was beautiful. The service was every bit as good. The staff was helpful & friendly as we worked our way through a few minor bugs in information. No biggie. My e-mail address was wrong. I was on the 5th floor overlooking the beach. The view was very nice. The place was clean. The bed was comfortable, the fridge was cold, the wifi worked, etc. The comedian who had the place before me set the alarm to go at midnight. Thanks for the hour of lost sleep. The restaurant served good food and the beer selection was good too. The only thing that really was a bother was the fact that the parking lot takes 10 minutes to get to. You usually have to take an elevator to the right floor, then find and take a foot bridge to the lot. That's a drag when you've got luggage to haul. The other option is to walk wayyyyyy around and up a hill. One word of warning. The sliding doors facing the ocean will open easily. The railing is low. So small children will be at risk of a fatal fall. Bear that in mind when asking for a room.

ORPir8Wench, Portland, Oregon 27/04/2018

This hotel is going through some renovations and I'm sure when complete it will be very nice. I understand they are adding an outside fire-pit area to their lounge area. All the rooms have been/are being remodeled. We had stayed on the 5th floor in a remodeled room and it was very nice and clean. This is a standard fare big-chain hotel and has all the amenities you would expect. The two drawbacks for me is that the beach is actually across the street from the hotel and the hotel is a little drive down to the bayfront area. All-in-all if you are looking for a clean place that is ocean view to rest your head, this is it. I cannot comment on the restaurant, as I did not eat there during my stay.

twokuhl, General Manager at Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review

HBRay, Shaoxing, China 24/04/2018

I stayed here for a business conference. The hotel is under renovation, which was fine, they apologized for the construction, and we felt they did their best to keep the noise level down. My husband went with me and our room was beautiful, looking out at the ocean with a small balcony, we loved the view! The rooms are tastefully decorated, and the bed was VERY comfortable. The meals at the conference were standard fare, nothing to write home about, but okay for this type of event. Our only issue with this place was the restaurant downstairs. On Sunday (the first day of the conference) breakfast was on our own, so we thought we'd give this place a try. We didn't see a sign about waiting to be seated or to seat ourselves, so I asked the male server who was at the bar with a couple of female serves if it was okay to seat ourselves or not. He replied in a nasty tone "Not really, but whatever! Just don't sit at a dirty table!" I was taken aback, but thought he was just having a rough morning and we really didn't want to have to leave the hotel for breakfast, so we sat down (at a clean table). He continued to complain about us and others who had left and ignored us as far as menus, water, service in general. We finally got the hint and left. This was perhaps the rudest server I've ever experienced. I shared my first experience with one of the coordinators of our conference and she informed me that I was third person to report the male server's behavior (on separate days than the day I had been there) and that she would report him. If this was not an isolated incident, he really should be trained, or find other employment. The next night, I was on my own for dinner and didn't have a car to leave the hotel, so I decided to brave this place again. This time there was a podium with a sign that said "please wait to be seated" and I was seated very promptly by another server, and more mature woman who gave very good service. The food was good and I left happier than I would have thought possibly after my first experience. I would stay here again, as the hotel is lovely.

TMMao, WA 21/04/2018

There's construction. It's not that bad if you're a tourist and out most of the day. During our stay (early April) they were working on the first floor, so to get to the pool we had to dodge some construction debris--wallboard dust etc. But once you got there, the pool is a 5--saltwater, very warm, with a nice spa too. My kids loved it--we swam every day, twice a day at least once. Only the main restaurant was open during our stay (a real bummer that the bar was not yet completed--I had counted on that for our stay and was disappointed to see it still under construction, but with no notice about it on the website). We didn't dine in the restaurant, preferring to sample the restaurants of Newport. We all slept well. Our room was clean and comfortable for the most part. They have added sliding bathroom doors, which have no locks. These are awful. Hard to use, awkward and ... you can't lock the door! They have a little coffee maker on a built in shelf in the entertainment unit/dresser. however, the plug wasn't plugged in and there was no way for me to plug it in in place--no reachable outlet. So i had to move the coffee maker to the desk, taking up room on the desk. Seems they have made some small, poor and awkward, choices about how to finish these rooms. Hopefully, they'll get better as they work through their punch list. I'd consider staying her again if I went to Newport, but honestly, we'd probably go with a hotel that included breakfast. That pool though...it's nice!

Thank you for your review, I am so sorry about the timing of your stay as we are trying to get the second floor done and it has been hard with that being our only way to the pool.

Bre S, Phoenix, Arizona 09/04/2018

When we arrived we noticed that there was no parking near the hotel because of construction. They told us we had to park in a fire lane (which is not very safe if there is a fire) or park way up this side road that is on a steep hill and walk to a bridge then go down an elivator. When we got onto the floor where or room was the smell of chemicals from the remodel was so strong. It was not as bad in our room but it still made me have breathing issues. The rooms are very beautiful and the view is pretty nice but long walk to the beach. The only thing I found odd in the room was the bathroom door. There is not much privacy. The door only slides over the opening of the bathroom. It is a couple of inches from the wall . It's very odd. I would prefer to shut the bathroom door not slide it over like a barn door. We had breakfast at the hotel restaurant and it was a bad mistake. We did not like any of it except the toast and jelly. Skip the breakfast if you do stay here. I would not recommend it at all. I would stay again but after about maybe five years when all the new chemical smell has gone hopefully.

"Beautiful beach, bad parking availability"

teia2018, Gold Beach, Oregon 09/04/2018

The real issue was we were unaware at booking they were under construction and how it affected their parking. We always like Best Western for their beds, cleanliness and pet friendly. Just this stay was a pain arriving late and trying to get around a packed parking lot with many storage containers in the way due to construction. The room was remodeled, so it did have a slight odor of new carpet or paint smell, not a real issue. Bathroom sink was trying to clog but I'm sure they fixed it after we reported it when leaving. Restaurant was excellent. Beach would've been great if it hadn't been raining, so did get the pleasure, but view of storm was cool.

The Best Western Agate Beach Hotel was wonderful. The newly remodeled rooms, lobby and restaurant are beautiful. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had dinner in the onsite Starfish Grill. The gluten free halibut fish and chips were the best ever!

We love this hotel, from the time we arrived the staff has been friendly. Anna and Issac made sure our family could have adjoining rooms. It has been perfect and the room service has hands down been ??Excellent. Tonight, our waitress Diana was amazing. The food is really good. Loved it.The rooms are nice. View is beautiful. Beach access is easy. We will be back!! Once all the construction is completed. It will be an amazing Best Western. We will be making lots of memories here.???? NordNold

We enjoyed staying at this Best Western as they are remodeling the hotel, we had a very nice room on the 6th floor with an ocean view. The location was good and many things to do within a 25 mile area.

"Best Western truly does not care about their guests."

User 28/03/2018

The following is the email I sent to Best Western's customer service department that was never responded to and it's almost been an entire week since it was sent. The manager here at the Newport location, Anna [--], is very rude and lacks basic customer service knowledge. We brought dogs on our stay and made the reservation as pet friendly. When checking in all parties were aware that pets were going to be staying with us and is part of the reason we chose best western. As we were at breakfast this morning, Anna [--] , contacted my significant other and was very rude during the conversation in regards to the dogs being left in the guest room. Her tone was very condescending and unfriendly. I have worked at Westin and as I'm sure you can agree, this interaction is not acceptable in hospitality. When we returned to the hotel to speak with Anna [--]about the conversation she had with my significant other, she was rude and would consistently talk over me and made assumptions on my feelings about the situation. The first thing i said to her was a question. How long have you been in the hospitality industry? She responded a long time. I then attempted to ask if she feels the way she spoke to my significant other is hospitable but I could not complete my question as she became emotionally charged and frustrated with such a simple inquiry. I attempted to ask my question againyet she chose to speak over me again and her frustration showed so much she turned completely around before not answering the question yet again. Anna continued to talk over me as she was focused on telling us how we need to read things before signing them. At this point it has been made very clear to me that Anna is unfit for her current position and needs additional coaching or a break. After she got her personal thoughts and feelings off her chest, she was sure to assume she knew my feelings on the situation. At this point I believe she was done and asked her how she was aware of my feelings and to state what I said to her verbatim as I said nothing about my feelings. Anna claimed that she was being attacked by me and refuse to answer any of my questions. I let her know she had done a very poor job in handling the interaction and is in great need of coaching. I then headed to my room. My significant other went back down to get a copy of what was signed in regards to the pets, as Anna stated that we signed something saying we did not have pets in the room and if we did we were not allowed to leave them in the hotel as she doesn't know of any other hotels that would allow that. If you'd like a list of these hotels I can provide it. My significant other asked for a copy of what we signed for review. And that document had a box we initialled stating there would be a 75 fee to clean a non pet room if there is a pet. There was nothing initialed stating we were not bringing pets, so Anna [--] lied to us and created this entire escalation by not doing her due diligence and jumping to conclusions. My significant other let Anna know there was nothing initialed about not having pets in the room. Anna [--] chose to respond to this with another excuse and lie, stating that it's an allergy issue. As my significant other and myself also have experience in property management, we understand a room can be cleaned to remove allergens. Come to find out that the issue was created by the booking of the room being done incorrectly by best western as the room was to be booked as no smoking with pets as opposed to no smoking and no pets. If Anna [--] would have shown an ounce of hospitality, patience, and/or done her due diligence prior to accusations, this entire scenario would have been avoided. Best western would still have us as future guests as well when we travel for business and personal, yet will choose another hotel after this experience with Anna [--] whom best western has deemed fit for management. Room 418 at Newport, Or. Without a reply to my email, Best Western has made it clear they do not value their guests.

I am so sorry that you left our hotel feeling the way you did, I wish you had reached out to me about this situation. I can not speak for Best Western Customer Care as to why they have not responded. We do have pet policy's in place that are used for each guest with a pet. We do only have a certain amount of pet rooms. We do allow you to leave your pet in the room if you are using the amenities on property. I am very sorry that this situation seemed to have been handle wrong and I apologize for this.

loved the help the staff gave us and enjoyed the view very much. the room was clean and set up comfortably, working appliances no broken or messed up equipment,and the coffee was better than the others Best westerns. We will be returning there in the near future. Even though they were remodeling the place it was easy access and clean. Some signs of construction, but that was to be expected.

Super nice Hotel in a great spot. Pretty sure most of the rooms here provide a great view of the ocean. We were kinda worried that it was so reasonably priced, we thought it might not be so nice, but its a VERY nice Hotel with a dream location! We ordered from the Thai restaurant downtown had it delivered and enjoyed the sunset from our room. Then we left the glass door open to enjoy the sounds of the surf to aid our sleep. VERY NICE! Absolutely would return if staying in Newport again.

I was in a newly renovated room with great ocean view. The room was very clean and bed was quite comfortable. I understand from chatting with hotel staff that the whole place is being renovated and updated. I've stayed here before and have to say with what they've accomplished it's like staying in a brand new hotel. I really was impressed with the new menu in the restaurant. Parking was a little bit of a challenge, due to the shipping containers, but that's obviously very temporary due to construction. The staff was very nice and helpful. And, I was warmly greeted and thanked for staying, which is a very nice change from a lot of places these days. I'll definitely be back.

The staff were friendly, the facility clean, though construction not finished and bar set up in extra room. Our heat didn't work, but they fixed it the next day. (Had to ask twice for enough blankets to be warm.) Toilet didn't flush properly and tub didn't drain but fixed it the first morning. The exercise machines didn't work but the maintenance guy came right away. The new decor is going for brown and grey modern... not my favorite but clean and updated. Not the warmest colors. Wasn't outstanding and wasn't terrible. Due to the Newport Seafood and Wine Festival, room rates were doubled.

Donna D, Spokane, Washington 20/02/2018

Hotel is a work in process so lots of construction and workers around the facility. Front desk staff was friendly during check in and although we were early (12:30) they had a room ready. Our room was beautiful. The furnishings were modern, color scheme was peaceful. Bed was comfortable and everything was in working order in our room. There is noise from the hall like one of the other reviewers mentioned. It was worse our first night and pretty much non existent the second night. This might still be something they are working on. The door had a large gap so noises would be carried into the room. Bar was being remodeled but it looks to have a great view and I look forward to returning to check it out. Had breakfast both mornings and staff was great. Our server could not have been nicer. Food was ok....pancakes were good! We had a few issues which I talked to the front desk about. They were receptive and I am certain they will address them and make this truly a great stop! Beach is right outside and a very walkable enjoyable place. Check out this hotel, it is going to be a true destination!

I stayed in one of the renovated rooms which was clean, well-appointed and had an amazing view of the ocean. The renovations are set to finish up later this year and all the rooms will be as nice as this one. Staff were friendly and hotel was set up well for dogs. Lots of parking and easy access inside from 1st and 6th floors (it's on a hill). Only issue was noise- walls are thin especially around the door in between rooms. Bring earplugs if this could be a problem for you.

Lauren K, oregon 14/02/2018

We had a nice corner room on the top floor w/ the best view of the ocean! I would stay just for the view. It had a balcony which was nice. The room was redone so it was clean and furniture were new. Our dogs were welcome. Overall had a really good experience but we were unlucky and had a very noisy neighbor and their noise came right through the door adjoining the 2 rooms. They need to seal the seams better. There was a screaming baby at 4 AM and the mother was coughing non stop. It was terrible. It wasn't the hotel's fault that this family had issues but they could really do a better job w/ the seal on the door between rooms. Otherwise, great hotel. Very close to a very wide, expansive beach which was wonderful! There is a pool and hot tub although we didn't use it.

This hotel is a place you need to be cautious about. Seriously understaffed in all areas. I have stayed all over the world and I've never seen a hallway outside my door covered in piles of laundry, so bad we could hardly go through it, trays of room service that were there since breakfast, it was evening. The one person at the front desk is rude. The beach is great for walking the dogs and people. The room service food from the dining room is adequate. They need to discount this place. Also besides them saying that they had finished the 6th floor that wasn't true. It's loud with the construction and again she lied about the times they're working. There was also a huge blast that shock the whole building at 5 am. Be warned.

Judy K, General Manager at Best Western Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
I want to apologize for the problems and cleanliness. This was not suppose to of been that way. Yes we do still have renovations going on and there is still items on the 6th floor that has not been completed due to renovations going on it will be last. We are trying very hard to keep up with the schedule of the workers and I know they are not suppose to start until a certain time each morning. I am sorry about the huge blast at 5 am but I can assure you it was not created from our hotel. I do hope that you will come back and stay with us again. Thank you for your review! Judy

"Dog Friendly not true"

Duane H, Salem, Oregon 05/02/2018

They say they are Dog friendly. We didn't find out till we booked a room. That you have to contact the Hotel to ask for a dog room. Also that we you leave the Hotel. your Dog must go with you and you have to tell them when you go to the pool and to the Restaurant that you going there. We stayed for a month in a Best Western in Colorado Springs and never had a problem leaving our dog. But was told it was a Hotel policy not Best Westerns policy. They allowed me to Cancel my reservation but the I was stuck trying to find a place. It was a special trip it was our 10th Anniversary. I will stay at another best western but not this one.

Judy K, General Manager at Best Western Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
I am so sorry about the problem with your dog. I hope you understand that we don't like to ask you to take your pet, Unfortunatly we get so many complaints of barking that disturb our other guests that we need to be able to reach you if this happens. As long as we have a cell phone on file to reach you there is not need to let us know each time you leave your room. I am so sorry you cancelled your reservation. My hope is that you will come back and give us another try. If you book on line the rooms say if they are pet friendly or not. Thank you for your review. Judy

I booked with this Best Western because of the location knowing full well there was construction. It didn't disturb us too much, as the working hours were very reasonable. We had a great children's themed room that my kids loved but there was a couple problems with the room. The maintenance guy was very helpful as was the cleaning staff. The front desk understood our concerns about the room and went out of there way to make sure we were comfortable. We were moved to a very nice updated room. I was very impressed with how the hotel handled our concerns and I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and I'm already looking forward to our next trip.

Major renovations are under way, which impact your stay. Nice location near Agate beach, which is great walking beach. This is a large property for a Best Western, with 6 floors and interior hallways. We stayed in a pet friendly room (which I appreciate), but the hallway was extremely dirty. Bathroom sink was clogged and it took handyman almost an hour to unclog it. The staff is pleasant, but you may want to wait until after the renovations are complete unless this is your only option as it was not up to what you would normally expect in a BW operation.

Stopped in to say hello and make reservations for Christmas 2018 holiday. The Hotel GM came out to say hello and offered a tour to see the remodel work. The new rooms are wonderful and we look forward to our annual Christmas visit this year and also having Christmas dinner in the hotel. We've visited each Christmas Holiday for the previous six (6) years but because of obligations near home, we weren't able to visit Christmas 2017. We certainly missed seeing the GM and great staff and our future plans are to NOT miss another holiday visit there.

We stayed here for a couple nights before we met up with family for Thanksgiving. This hotel was absolutely perfect! The beach is very close and easily accessible! There is also a Walmart right next door! I loved that our room had a balcony. (Which it seemed most rooms did.) The beds were comfortable as well! The bar and restaurant seemed very nice, although I did not get a chance to eat there due to other plans. My favorite feature though, was their indoor pool & hot tub! I was amazed that for the first time a hotel pool wasn't freezing to me! Even though a lot of hotels say their pools are heated, they still are way too cold for me! This pool however, was very refreshing! It felt like cooler bath water instead of river water. I also wasn't itchy after swimming, so I think they use salt water instead of chlorine! The staff is also super friendly! Especially Anna at the front desk! She was so sweet with our 2 year old! I definitely recommend this hotel & if we are in the area again, we are absolutely staying here!!! Small side note, but this hotel still deserves every star! 1. I disliked the smell that the hand soap (bar of soap) left on my hands! (Shampoo and conditioner were fine.) 2. The appliances (mini fridge & microwave) especially the microwave seemed like it could use an update.

We stopped at this hotel because it was a Best Western. They were undergoing renovations, but we decided to stay there anyway. Upon check in, we asked about breakfast thinking (mistakenly) that breakfast was part of the deal. They simply said downstairs and we could order off the menu - because this was a Best Western we thought that brekfast was incluuded. We found out we were wrong the next morning. The staff we talked to were not helpful in the least - they just wanted to get rid of us. Bad attitude. The room was OK, although we could see signs of the renovations all around the hotel - dirty carpets, dust, etc. Pool and hot tub were fine.

octopusvenom, Vancouver, Canada 25/12/2017

I have understandable expectations when I book at a Best Western and this one did not deliver at all. Granted it's under a much needed makeover, so the price should reflect that when getting an old, barely clean and uncomfortable room. The linens are worn out, the mattresses are like sponge cakes (even stained!) and the bathroom is the size of a closet. We paid an extra USD 20 + tax to get an ocean view but we ended up taking a walk on the beach and could have spent that money more wisely. Overall this hotel is overrated and underwhelming to say the least.

The hotel has promise, but has yet to meet the full potential that is in store for it. I didn't know prior to booking out stay, but construction was taking place on upper floors, and it started at 8:30am. We could hear them drilling before we were really ready to wake up. The pool and hot tub are awesome, and the view of the surf is nice, even if it is a distance away.

One of the better Best Westerns we've stayed at. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was clean and tidy. The location was perfect while having a camper installed just over a mile down the road. The traffic was a bit daunting since we're from the coast and unaccustomed to gridlock, but that's to be expected when visiting the Big City. This motel was handy to get to and tucked back from the highway enough so the traffic noises weren't unbearable. All in all, we couldn't have asked for more. We'll definitely stay here again when in the Portland area.

Bad experience that's abnormal. The hotel is under major renovation that's not listed on their website or noted in the lobby, Not even conveyed at check in. 8:30 AM the next morning the hammer drill starts. When I called front desk the clerk said she could hear it through the phone and it never has been that loud. She talked with manager and manager said to comp room at 50%. No call from the manager to explain or apologize. After complaining at check out the desk clerk agreed the room should be comped at 100%. Construction is difficult and the renovation is needed as the rooms and interior is definitely dated but you either close the property while the major part of the renovation is going on or at the least don't put guests in the same area; even a couple floors down. The upper parking lot is full of containers and one floor I saw was completely gutted. Again, this is a major, needed renovation that's just not handled right for the guests. On the floor being renovated there was a sign apologizing but I didn't see any notice of construction on the floor I was on or in the lobby area. No notice when checking in and no sign of storage containers in the main parking lot. You shouldn't have to ask if the hotel is having any construction when checking in...

Hotel is under construction. Rooms are nice and staff friendly and helpful. Restaurant service was not as good as it has been in the past but food was good. One thing that restaurant should do is plan better for food for buffet with different time seatings such as do not run out of meat (turkey) for those that have a later seating time. Make sure that the food that is available for the earlier time seatings is available for the later time seatings so all can enjoy.

While there, we enjoy the most delicious buffet meal! Everything from Dungeness crab legs to turkey and lots of yummy side dishes. The rooms are nice, and will be even nicer when they finish a renovation project. We highly recommend this place.

We have stayed at this hotel since 1981 when it was built. It has gone through ups and downs over the years, but since Best Western has had it, there has been much improvement. They are currently starting to do a major remodel to all of the guest rooms, including all new windows which were needed and heat systems in the rooms, both of which were needed. While nice now, it will be excellent by early spring when the renovation is complete.

This was our 30th Wedding Anniversary. There was no continental breakfast at this location, it was need to pay (not expensive) breakfast. The room truly needed to be updated and the bed was too soft and lumpy. The pillows were a bit small for the bed. But the service was terrific and the beach walk is right out the back door.

Stayed there one night,very nice location we got a ocean front room and enjoyed the view before sundown. The room was great comfortable seating and the nights sleep was great. We had our evening meal in their dining room and it was excellent. The restaurant offers breakfasts but not through the hotel, we elected to move on and have breakfast in Newport. Great sleep!

I decided at the last minute to go to the beach so I looked for a Best Western hotel in NW Oregon that would let me use my rewards for a Saturday night stay that was on the beach. The Best Western Agate Beach Inn is right across a small street from the beach with half the rooms ocean view. They have a sky bridge on the 6th floor to the upper parking lot. They are re-tiling the 6th floor so it's a little messy but they have made it accessible. The hotel is clean and nicely decorated. I got dinner to go from the Starfish Grill which was fantastic. The waitress also made sure I had every condiment available to go with my dinner. The next day I decided to have a late check out which wasn't a problem and then ordered room service breakfast. It came sooner than I was told and was very tasty. From my window on the 5th floor I watched the end of the sunset and then the sunrise all while relaxing in a chair. I could see whales spouting from up there out in the ocean actually not too far out. Saw a Bald Eagle, an Osprey and of course sea gulls and crows. Watched the Yaquina Head Light house from my room also with the waves crashing on the rocks below. It was a beautiful relaxing experience. I love the beach and Best Western Agate Beach made it that much more enjoyable. Too bad I had to go home.

User 20/11/2017

The room smells. They told me its normal because room is pet friendly. On the top of the bedsheet and under pillow and sheets, there some hair. The bathtub has hair too. I paid and i think i deserve a clean, fresh room. Employee were not nice nor friendly. I took my dog out so they can clean my room and they only empty the garbage and put new towels. No vacuum or bed fix.

The staff was great, the hotel is going through renovations which is much needed! The rooms are comparable to a motel 6. The only thing that gives this hotel value is it's location. Pay the extra money for the Shilo or Hallmark!

I am very sorry you were disappointed with your stay, Yes we are renovating and the hotel will be so nice when done. We will be adding air conditioning and our public spaces will be done as well. I do hope you will come back and give us another try. Thank you for your review. Judy

This property is under a major remodel, but the facility and staff were great to explain what was going on. The remodel didn't hamper our fun one bit. The pool and hot tub were a great destination for me and my grandkids. The beach is not far, and offers some dramatic scenery. The restaurant provided top notch food. We ordered in a couple of times and also ordered breakfast at the restaurant. Easy check-out.

Karen P, Bay City, Michigan 09/11/2017

I just got back from a trip up the coast line from San Diego to Seattle. A big part of planning this trip was the hotel research. I only selected those with positive reviews and this hotel met those expectations. I only stayed one night. I was traveling alone and never felt nervous. I agree that the rooms needed updating, but I disagree on the staff/service. The front desk staff were very nice and professional. They made a point of asking how my stay was and if there was anything else I needed. The views were fabulous and was able to catch a wonderful sunset. Would highly recommend!!

When we arrived the staff was not welcoming or helpfull at all and the rooms are worn out and needs to be updated. The parking for the hotel is also terrible about the only good things about this hotel is the view and the staff in the morning when we checked out. I would definitely recommend to look around before staying at best western in newport.

This is a very nice dog friendly hotel located on a beautiful beach close to Newport. We had a 6th floor room with an impressive ocean view. we enjoyed dinner and breakfast at the hotel and staff were friendly. It was off season so the hotel was not busy and a bit expensive given the circumstances. A beautiful property but ready for a face lift which is ready to start.

Overall this was a fine place for our family,,,,the pool was a treat for the kids. as it was indoor and plenty big..the beach was the highlight for a beautiful morning walk, it was stunning and spacious. 3 stars primarily because, for a family of 5, there was no warm breakfast offered and we had to drive offsite for that.

374brandonk, Grants Pass, Oregon 27/10/2017

Had a great experience until I went back to my room to gather a few items before I checked out. A housekeeper came into my room when I was in a meetin downstairs and took items out of my room. Left other items and no sign of any housekeeping happened. Trash still full, bed still unmade, just items missing. Hotel manager got involved after a housekeeper came forward with partial items in hand. Room was paid by 3rd party, so no benefit of a refund. Would've been nice to get a voucher for a next visit, if I decide to come back to best western

Robin B, Seattle, Washington 25/10/2017

Enjoyed a three day weekend despite marginal weather. Newport is a good location and enjoyable town for the coast, and this hotel has a fine spot just outside town. Room was clean and we loved being on the ocean side, though "balcony" was tiny. Breakfast not included, as it is with many Best Westerns, and the $5 special breaky in the restaurant looked weak. The worst part of the weekend was frequent barking next to our room. Most owners are oblivious to the fuss their dogs make when left alone in a strange room with various unrecognized noises. Since the hotel was nearly at capacity, changing rooms wasn't an option. The high price of the room added to the dissatisfaction of the noise. I hope in the future pets will not be allowed, as I would like to return for more time on the coast.

"Rather Nice Stay"

James C, Portland, United States 22/10/2017

We had a rather pleasant stay at the Best Western Agate Beach Inn. I'm a "Platinum Member" of Best Western Rewards, and a staff member at the front desk took note of this and upgraded us to a room on the fifth floor with a very nice ocean view. The room itself was rather nice, and most things in it seemed to work, although my wife couldn't get the heating controls to function. All the staff members we encountered were professional and pleasant, and the housekeeper who had responsibility for our room was exceptionally nice. Potential guests should be aware, however, that there is no free breakfast for guests at this property. (We were told that guests could have breakfast in the hotel restaurant for a fee,)

We had a great stay. My husband is in a wheelchair and we wanted to go down to the lounge/bar to eat and found that they had a lift for disabled that can not use the stairs which was awesome! The only issue we had was they need more disabled parking for wheelchair vans on the lower parking lot and upper parking lot.

lebefana, Portland 18/10/2017

Great beach view (reserve or request it). King bed in nice spacious room with sitting area, desk with separate space for kitchen sink, micro, fridge, coffee maker. Yes, little dated but clean, in fact i found an abandoned cleaning bucket with gloves and rags in the hall way near my room when I checked in...not so inviting. Restaurant menu could use a little more variety. Every day my door key magnet had to be re-magnetized...pretty inconvenient. Parking is not next to the building, but located on 6th floor with an uncovered walkway. Why would you have an uncovered walkway in rainy winter Oregon?

Heidi C, Yakima, Washington 16/10/2017

Located right on agate beach, this was a good place for us to bring our dogs. I also liked that we didn't have to drag the dogs through the lobby to get to our room. Over all the hotel was dated and smelly. It is going to be remodeled soon so I would probably return at that time.

"Hot tub not so hot!"

4
User 16/10/2017

The hotel is fairly nice, but it is a little dated. They have in-room coffee, microwave, and refrigerator which I have come to expect in hotels these days. The view from our room was spectacular! Looked out over the ocean. It was partially blocked by some trees, but not completely, so it worked for me. Shower was nice and hot immediately. The hot tub in the pool area was another matter. The second day we were there (Saturday) there apparently were a lot of people using the hot tub which doesn't have jets, but it does have bubblers. In my opinion this is what contributed to the cool temperature in the tub. Apparently, when the water level in the tub goes down, the incoming water is cold until it has a chance to go through their recirculating heating system which takes 20 minutes! I don't have time to wait for the hot tub to heat! I want it hot now! On the plus side, they did have adults only time from 10pm to midnight. They are going to do a complete remodel, so maybe they will be addressing the not-so-hot tub!

We stayed one night after being on the road. Location was nice. Weather was cold & rainy, otherwise would have walked on the beach. Overall clean &comfortable. Nice little fitness room but TV didn't work, although it could have been due to the internet problems from the California fires. We were very disappointed that breakfast would have cost $5 when we were used to breakfast included at the other Best Westerns. Still a good stay.

Disappointed with room. Dirty around sliding door. No screen. Balcony very small and can step across to next balcony. Furniture in room was very worn. No sink in the coffee bar. This room is more like a $90.00 room. When you get to your motel and you are tired, you can't even check in until 4pm. Don't tell me you don't have rooms available before that!

Cellanomis, Portland, Oregon 02/10/2017

We were expecting an updated, clean room for the price we paid. We normally wouldn't spend that much, but it was a special occasion. The rooms were incredibly dated and dirty feeling. I see that they are going to remodel soon, which is great, but in the current state of affairs the room should have been about half the price that we paid.

I would recommend another flooring option besides carpet in pet friendly rooms. Our room also appeared pretty run down compared to prior stays.

Kathleen W, Missoula, Montana 27/09/2017

We reserved a king ocean view room. Arrived and found that our room was not available because the former occupants had shellfish and left shells everywhere. The room required serious cleaning. We were given room 232, two queen beds, ocean view. The thing is, 232 does not have an ocean view; it is a partial ocean view, and I suspect that room 230, 228 are the same way. From 232, we had a view of trees and bushes. They moved us to room 610 which was much better. High enough to see over trees and with a great view of the ocean. The beds were comfortable and rooms have microwaves and small refrigerators. The lower level has a bar and restaurant and a pool table. We could easily walk out to the beach. This hotel will undergo a renovation beginning next month. Much needed. As with any other beach hotel, the hotel is a bit worn and is in need of some sprucing up. The staff is very kind. We were minutes from Newport harbor and minutes from Depoe Bay. A Starbucks, Safeway, Walgreens, are not far away. Perfect.

What a great hotel we discovered at Agate Beach. We were just across a small road from the Ocean and the views from the hotel were spectacular. The check in staff were very friendly and helpful and the restaurant was delicious. Parking was free as well. Also, we had to cancel our first night as we were not going to make Newport that night due to construction delays on PCH. We cancelled around dinner time and there was no charge. Although the decor was a bit dated it was still a great stay and renovations start in October so this improvement will make this great hotel even greater - yes they are open during renovations!

Stayed in mid September with my partner for a 3-day long week-end at this hotel which is very well located at the Agate Beach in Newport, at the edge of the beach, facing the ocean and with only a small road to cross towards the beach. Great location however the room in which we stayed in, as well as I think most of its rooms, needs a major interior renovation which I hear, is taking place during Fall 2017.

Tim H, Eugene, Oregon 07/09/2017

We got a room for the beginning of Labor Day weekend. Rooms in town were expensive and we opted to venture out from our usual stay at The Hallmark. We had read reviews and some, now that we know, are misguided. This is a nice hotel, has friendly staff, and is ideally located. Upon check in, we were allowed to do so early and even got moved to the top floor at my request. The young man at the counter was pleasant, knowledgeable, and listened well. The hotel is in good condition given it is ready for renovation and was clean. The carpet has some stains but we expect them to leave those being its two months away from a facelift. Our room was adequately comfortable, quiet, and our needs were met for towels and such. Our floor was quiet outside of a large barking dog that only sounded off twice. Once was when my daughter ran past their room at 9pm, behavior we obviously address. It was convenient being on the 6th floor with the parking lot being there. Additionally, the two elevators were quick to be at our floor and much better than most hotel elevator waits. The pool is nice, albeit busy with kids but we contributed to that. I would definitely not want to stay in the rooms on the 2nd floor between the lobby and pool though. This location is ideal for beach time. There is a Walmart next door for any needs you might have. Decent restaurants and quick fast food is close also. Honestly I feel some of the other reviews are unjustly harsh. This is a solid hotel if you are looking for a clean, quiet, location preferred stay. We just hope the BW Plus tag doesn't come with too much of a rate increase. The price of this hotel is appealing now.

Best Westerns are the most pet friendly hotels on the Oregon Coast. Our room came with pet sheets for the top of our beds so our dog could sleep with us without leaving dog hair everywhere. Great idea! They had poop bag disposal stations (with bags available) in the parking lot and on the path to the beach and a place to wash off when returning from the beach.

I loved this hotel and would return to Oregon just to go here. We stayed in a very comfortable room with king size bed facing the ocean with two very comfy chairs that we turned around so we could look at the ocean. I even saw a whale from my room with binoculars. The rooms were clean. The hotel staff were very friendly. We had breakfast and dinner in the restaurant and enjoyed both. The dining menu is small but everything we had was delicious and there is fresh baked bread warm from the oven. It felt like a home away from home and I don't get that feeling very often in a hotel.

My husband and I ended up staying three days here (at the time of the eclipse) and came back to stay another night when we got smoked out by forest fires for our inland destination. It felt like coming home when we returned. We had a very roomy ocean facing room with king bed, There were two very comfy chairs that we turned to face the ocean so we could just look out - I even saw a whale one evening with my binoculars. (Bring binoculars because there are whales that stay in the area - good viewing at the nearby lighthouse.) There is a restaurant downstairs that serves a good breakfast and excellent dinners at reasonable prices. The staff are friendly . I would go back to Oregon just to stay at this warm and friendly hotel.

A one night stay in walking distance to the beach, but an overcast day sure messes that view up. Rooms are nice and spacious with sliding outside doors. No air conditioning - only two hotels in Newport, supposedly, have air. Unlike other Best Western's, breakfast is NOT complimentary - $5 per person. According to the front desk, complimentary breakfast is a "locally owned franchisee" option. Corporate doesn't force them to offer it. Never knew this. Note in the elevator that renovations on the hotel will start 10/31/17. So some future bookings may run into construction. Ask the question reader.

Visited with my grandad for the eclipse. Staff are very nice and friendly especially in the restaurant. The pool and hot tub are very nice. They have a small gym but the treadmill didnt work during my 3 day visit. The rooms are comfortable however our bath tub would fill up during a shower. The location of Agate beach is ideal with great views. My main complaint is that they do not serve any vegetarian dishes in their restaurant unless you are happy with a salad without dressing. Nowadays there really should be a vegetarian option.

We took a road trip down to Oregon Coast and best eastern agate beach inn was one of our stops. Beautiful view from the hotel located by the beach. Crazy sand dunes and views of lighthouses. It is a windy place and don't plant to get in the ocean unless you have a wet suit.

User 22/08/2017

When we arrived we'd been on the road for over 8 hours. I checked in asking for 3 keys. Not one of them worked! I had to return to the desk two more times before they were able to get the keys to work. There was no air conditioning in the rooms which is typically not an issue on the coast except there were no screens on the sliding doors so opening them up for fresh air wasn't an option. The room was hot, stuffy and uncomfortable even after they provided us with a small fan. When I addressed these issues they told me they were undergoing an upgrade soon and these problems would be addressed during the process. The beach is beautiful so I will stay at this property in the future but not until the upgrade has been completed.

Made my reservation for this hotel in May. We were spending 9 days along the coast from Brookings up to Newport. I made reservations at multiple BW along the coast. This one looked nice from the photos of the lobby and the rooms. Upon arrival I was surprised to find out there was no AC. I know, I know, its the Oregon Coast who needs AC. Well, it can still get muggy and humid in a hotel room even though the daytime temps might only reach 65 degrees. The hotel is maybe, 700 feet from the water. The keycard locks are old and the readers didnt always work well. The rooms were clean but tired and ready for an overhaul. The front desk informed me that they are starting a remodel in November 2017, which will upgrade the whole hotel to a BW Plus and the rooms will get a much needed update, remodel and AC! When I asked about the rates after the remodel, they said about $10 per night more. Will try this place again after the remodel.

We liked the location, but the facility is tired. Having said that, and to be fair, renovation/remodeling is scheduled to begin in November of this year. Windows will be replaced with double pane windows, carpet I am assuming will be replaced, and so on. The location is ideal, the staff friendly, and the restaurant personnel were top notch, especially Barbara. She was delightful!

Was concerned about the price, but it was worth it. Pet friendly room was clean and not-smelling. 6th floor room had a great view of the beach. Also, close to dog relief area. Restaurant food was good and as long as you stayed on the premise you could go without worrying about pet.

Laurie G, Seattle 08/08/2017

My husband and I have stayed here a couple times. The hotel staff are friendly. There's a restaurant on site but we didn't eat there. The rooms don't have AC but it was cool enough that we just opened the sliding door and all was good. The decor is a little worn but the place is scheduled for a remodel in November. The room (two queens) was decent sized, everything was clean. Parking is substantial so no problem there. There was ice and vending on each floor I believe. Beds were comfortable. The beach is across the street which was nice and there is a park next door. The pool looked nice but we didn't use it. The price we paid was fair considering we were right at the beach. In case you leave something behind there is a Walmart next door.

Elizabeth B, roseburg 07/08/2017

Hotel is nice and clean, just a walk across to get on to Agate Beach. We did not like our room because it was right under the walking bridge where you hear door closing and luggage dragging. Our beds were soft and sagged in the middle. Otherwise, overall good.

Great hotel with ocean views. Service not the best, but good accommodations otherwise. Parking was a bit of a hassle. Does not offer complimentary breakfast, even for Diamond members. Not a great price /value overall...

reddog4613, Fort Worth, Texas 06/08/2017

The motel is clean and has spacious rooms. One side faces the beach. The lobby is inviting and has fire place with nice seats to sit and relax. There is beach access from the motel. There is a nice view if you are on the beach side. The other side view is good too of the surrounding woods. The rooms have siding glass door with a small balcony. The rooms are quiet. The WiFi is speedy. The beds are comfortable. There is a nice indoor hot tub and pool. The caveats: - the entrance can be tricky to find. - the entrance is right off Hwy 101 so it has alot of traffic. - Parking near the front entrance is limited but there is the main parking lot up a small hill with a skyway access into the motel on the sixth floor. - There is no A/C but opening the sliding door will cool the room off at night - However, if you're on the non-beach side then the street light shines in. Also, if your room is on the sixth or fifth floor near that parking lot skyway then people can peer right into your room. In addition, the sun rises and shines in on that side. Ocean side is the best but also hard to get. There is complementary coffee in the lobby and also in your room. There is a restaurant with nice view of the beach and surrounding woods. We ate breakfast there and it was very good. Staff is friendly and helpful.

David A, Amherst, Ohio 03/08/2017

User 03/08/2017

Our stay was relaxing and peaceful because of the location, view,cleanliness and overall quality of the room. We will definitely return because of the excellent experience. This hotel is not a BWPlus so the room, although very good was not excellent because of the somewhat cramped bathroom, lack of a sitting balcony and no complimentary breakfast which we have enjoyed at most other BWs.

Two night stay. Our room was reserved with a tree view. I asked for an ocean view and was told it was $30 extra per night. Paid the extra money and it was worth it, however we had to get a rollaway bed and that was another $10 per night. Our room smelled like tacos (not our doing). Could have used an air freshener. Quick access out to beach but note there are a zillion small sand dunes to hike over on your way to shoreline. Water cold but great beach for playing on. Breakfast good and plentiful though it's not included.

This hotel has not been maintained at all and does not have Air Conditioning and our first floor room widow did not open more than a few inches and therefore was very warm and lacked ventilation. Towels are threadbare and sheets were too small for the bed and very thin. Hotel is to be modernized in the near future but should be avoided at this time (July 2017). Views are good and so is location but property is overpriced for what you get. Can not recommend at this time

Our stay at the Agate Beach Inn included much R&R. Hotel staff were wonderful, the restaurant delicious, the pool the perfect temp. Love that you can walk right to the beach from the hotel. Minor disappointment that there were so many children in the pool the entire time - we were too tired by 10:00 PM when the adult pool hours rolled around to use it then. Would have appreciated early morning hours that were adult only. Had constant issues with the wifi. No AC, only a fan/heater.

Cin4513, Havertown, Pennsylvania 19/07/2017

I picked this hotel because it is right near the beach and a great location. I've stayed at many Best Westerns- some great (NYC and Eureka CA) and some not so much (Athens GA and Iowa) so I had relatively high expectations for this place. I had been awake for 20 hours by the time I reached the hotel and couldn't wait to relax in an icy cold room and unwind from the day (more like pass out). It was 95 degrees back home in Philadelphia so I was thrilled to be on the Oregon coast where it was in the 60s. As soon as I opened the door to my room I was pleasantly surprised by how spacious it was. There was a frig and a microwave which was a plus (older, but functioning). As I walked into the room I went right for the thermostat. I couldn't wait to turn it down to the lowest it would go. The air conditioning on the plane wasn't working good and I'm always hot so being cold and comfortable in my temporary oasis was a big deal at that moment. Hmmmmm.... no thermostat. Ok- must be a wall unit. No problem!!! Walked to the opposite end of the room and all I saw was a small odd looking unit that looked more like a heater than an AC but what do I know? I pressed the down button but it wouldn't go lower than 72.... I called the front desk and she confirmed there is no air conditioning in the rooms and that none of the hotels in the area do and that they are remodeling in November 2017 and did I want a fan. Absolutely I wanted a fan! I would have take a dozen of them... I was promptly brought a fan and rather than crying I went out to eat at the #1 rated restaurant in the area Georgie's. Ok back to my room, I was one of the unlucky souls that got a balcony view of the parking lot, not the beach. The view from the hotel of the beach is spectacular. But I didn't get that view. Since there are no windows in the room I thought about leaving my balcony door open but it just didn't feel safe because anyone from one of the other rooms could hop the small railing separating our balconies and have access to my room. Forget about the potential bug entering factor, it just didn't seem smart or a safe thing to do. Especially since my room could be seen from the parking lot walkway. Ok- I know I'm sounding paranoid. Honestly, if the room had air conditioning like the hallways it would be amazing. The room was a little dated but it was fine, the bed was comfy and the wifi worked well. Even though it's a high def tv it didn't have any high def channels. I'm sure all the improvements will come in November of 2017 and beyond. The extra parking lot is a little unusual but it worked fine. The beach is a short walk down and it was really nice and I'm not even a beach person but I spent 2 hours walking on it first thing in the am. They don't offer free breakfast as a lot of Best Westerns do but they do have a restaurant. When I checked out I was asked how my stay was, and I said hot. Then I muttered ok... and the reply was "great!" I shouldn't have even said anything, but I was hot and grumpy. If you don't care about having air conditioning this may be perfect for you. I never thought to ask and I should have read more reviews first. I would have stayed in another city. I have a reservation for a Best Western in Lebanon Oregon tonight and really hope they have ac!!! I will stay here again when the remodeling is done but not before.

Rooms were very mediocre however the hotel plans to renovate starting November 2017. The restaurant in the lobby was great!!

Shels4ever, Fingal 13/07/2017

Stayed here with my wife and 12 yo daughter. Great Location with direct access to the beach. Walkable from the hotel to Newport but not a short walk. There is the infrequent local bus which for very little cost serves Walmart directly next door and this is what we used when going to Newport bay. Room was large and clean with Microwave and fridge. Bathroom was adequate size. Only surprise was they do not do a buffet breakfast with waiter service and this would add to cost quite a bit. However, if you are happy with a cold buffet, then do as we did which was buy food in Walmart which you can access on foot directly from the hotel carpark. Enjoyable stay and we will definitely return as cost was good value for the location.

Location, location, location...this property is located on the oceanfront only seconds away from the heart of Newport, OR. Views from the property are amazing, just like most of the views you find along the Oregon Coast. Property is scheduled for renovations and upgrades soon which are needed. However, with limited chain hotel options in the area, we would utilize this pet friendly location again in the future. Rate was reasonable for the area and staff and amenities were excellent...indoor pool, lounge, restaurant, beach access.

We always stay here when we vacation in Newport Or. They have a sports bar looking and a separate restaurant looking at the beach. They let us have my German Shepherd which is difficult to find nice places and a large dog. Most the time we bring our adult and teenage sons. The love the beach and the pool and spa. I know this is different but there is a Walmart right next to them and a Safeway and Fred Meyers not even a 1/4 mile up the road. I usually spend 7-10 days at a time here each year. I hope this helps.

Room had comfortable, large beds, but was somewhat cramped in the toilet/bath/vanity area. Courteous, not unfriendly, but not particularly friendly staff. No complementary breakfast as at many Best Westerns but room service and on-site restaurant is available.

David B, Mill Creek, Washington 04/07/2017

As I write this we are embarking on our third and final night at this hotel. Most of the important things about this place are fine. The beds are comfortable, the room is clean and everything works. The hotel is looking a bit dated but we learned there is a remodel scheduled for this coming late fall. Two issues, however. The walls are pretty thin so we could easily hear our rather noisy neighbors in the room next to us, however, they were quiet by 10 PM and couldn't hear them again until around 8 AM. The second issue is that they allow pets so dog barking can be heard from time to time. Unfortunately, one resident had two dogs that started barking without ceasing as soon as he brought them out of his room and pretty much all the way to the beach or wherever he took them. Being woke up at 6:30 to 6:45 AM was not pleasant to say the least. We ate in the restaurant the first night for dinner. Food was fine but don't expect much as you probably don't from most hotel restaurants.

The size of the room was perfect as we had a blow-up bed for the 3-year-old. But the King Size bed was horrible. I had been more comfortable in my beds in Afghanistan! The restaurant was on site, but the same waitress couldn't get out order right either day. How hard is it to get toast?

alexandreaJG, Salem, Oregon 29/06/2017

Staying here for a couple nights. Just got here two hours ago. The room decor is tired with minimal nautical themed pictures. There are two dips in the king size bed where people have laid before us. The fridge makes a loud vibrating noise so we unplugged it. I called a week ago to request a room on the top floor. As Diamond Select members we are used to being offered the higher floors because of our sensitivity to noise. I specifically requested top floor here because the walls are thin and we have stayed here in the past. When we arrived, I got a room on the fifth floor, we took it since sleeping in the car didn't sound great. We got to the room and kids were running and jumping above us. We heard whole conversations From the room next door. When I called about the kids and asked about when quiet time is, he replied that kids are kids and that he would give a courtesy call. After discovering the opportunity to move up to the sixth floor was not available I expressed my displeasure at not being on the top floor after requesting it multiple times, it was met with, "we tried to get you an upper floor". I'm pretty disappointed in the lack of free breakfast, below standard bed sheets and decor, overall the relaxed level of service given, not to say that the man at the front desk wasn't courteous, but it was apparent that he was very comfortable with saying no. This does not fit with the standard best western brand, I'm sad I chose to bring my best friend on a girls trip here.

Very friendly and helpful staff upon check in. They seemed to really enjoy what they were doing and that goes a long way with us. We were fortunate to get a room on the 6th floor, the same level as the parking lot via a bridge. Our room faced the ocean and we had a wonderful view of the light house and beach. The room was a nice size with comfortable beds. Wish we had stayed more than one night but next time we are in town, we will make sure to stay longer. Nice quiet location away from the traffic.

Great pool. Breakfast NOT included, but they have $5 special in the restaurant that looked good until we saw all the other yummy stuff they offered. We had a great breakfast but it wasn't the $5 special. Somehow, I think, this is just a ploy to get you in the restaurant and then tempt you with all the eggs benedict and fluffy strawberry pancakes. The ploy works.

Great location and has beach access. Quiet rooms with great views and balconies that overlook the water. Friendly staff and great service. The meeting rooms are cold, but I'd rather they be cold than sweltering hot. Also, being on the water, it's much cooler here than inland, so even if it's 80 in Portland, it's still only 65 in Newport. Be prepared.

They give extra time for adults in the evening which is nice for relaxing. We will definitely stay here again if traveling through the Coast. Agate beach is beautiful!

Jen m, Toledo, Ohio 08/06/2017

I feel this hotel is overpriced. I did pay extra for an ocean view. But it's a best western- without the free breakfast. The lobby area is gorgeous and I was maybe expecting too much from the room. But the gold trimmed, mirrored closet doors, tiny bathroom and ancient microwave just gave the room a real tired 90's feel. This BW is trying to be a more expensive hotel, but the rooms are lacking. Unless you are going to spend hours on your one foot wide 'balcony' enjoying the view, I would pass. I'm not even sure if you can get to the beach?

A well run property with beach access and convenience to local attractions. Pool is comfortable with nice view of the ocean, most rooms have a view too. The entrance sneaks up on you, then the parking lot seems odd because it's attached to the top floor of the building via a pedestrian bridge...but park up there anyway and take the elevator down to the lobby to check in. It was a very restful stay for us while enjoying the Oregon Coast Aquarium and other interests in Newport.

I purchased a 2 night, midweek package through Groupon after I researched the Agate Beach Best Western on Tripadvisor. We were pleased the minute we entered the lobby. Checking in was very fast and efficient. I've never seen elevators that arrived within seconds. Our room was spacious, clean and had all the amenities we needed. I very much appreciated the fact that the whole wall ocean side was all window and sliding door. And the comfortable easy chairs are perfect for enjoying the view. The only reason I couldn't give it 5 stars is that the balcony is too narrow for sitting. We were impressed that there were many sitting areas so that the occupants on the parking lot side could still enjoy watching the waves roll in. We enjoyed the Starfish Grill for both dinner and breakfast and the bar's outdoor deck for lunch. I can recommend both.

Felt like a hidden secret, it's so much nicer than imagined from previous reviews or pictures! We felt it from the moment we walked into the grand lobby with a large fireplace seating area, gorgeous views & then warmly welcomed by the friendly, helpful Anna. Our room was nicely appointed w/kitchen bar, fridge, microwave, comfy beds & great oceanview. The pool is warm, nice large, hot tub, both super clean with views of the forest & ocean. Love that pool is stocked with water toys to keep kids busy & tire them out. :) The beach is gorgeous & more private than the busier sections of Newport. Really appreciated they had onsite restaurants & bar, at very reasonable price, it's not gourmet, but very doable, especially with $5 breakfast specials & $4 kids meals. Friendly, helpful staff from check-in to waitstaff & housekeeping team! If you're going for business, they have plenty of open or private computer/work areas to spread outside of your room, so you don't feel so enclosed. We will definitely be back!! Other notes: The elevator is super fast and as you get off on any floor, you'll be treated to amazing ocean views from the floor to ceiling balcony windows!!! I love that it's a very child-friendly hotel, so if kids bug you, please don't visit the pool area till after 10pm for adult hours or early mornings. Don't make parents feel guilty for letting their kids play & enjoy the amenities. Enjoy it all! My only small, petty con is the complimentary lobby & in-room coffee is absolutely terrible & it's the same in the restaurant. If they upgraded it & maybe offered some fresh fruit, it would be great!!! Had to take a short walk up the street (but it was nice trail) to get my caffeine fix.

Enjoyed our stay. We could see that it was very nice, clean and well taken care of. We spent some time in old part of Newport and just walked around, had lunch and shopped for carmel corn! We will be heading back here in late July for a family trip, and look forward to sharing this w/our kids and grandkids.

Friendly staff, good sports lounge with a pretty good beer and wine selection. Nice outdoor deck, great beachfront and ample parking. Room was clean a n d affordable. Only complaint is we could hear normal conversations in the next room.

Joseph C, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 24/05/2017

We needed a three day get away and chose Newport as the destination. We were happy to get a room for a reasonable rate at the Best Western. The hotel needs a face lift and in November it will get that and more in the mean time it still has a great location, good views The staff could not be nicer, the bar has a great view and the restaurant a $5 breakfast special that is very impressive. We at first had a king bed ocean but the BW reservation agent didn't inform me that it was a pet room. They were out of kings but we got a 2 queen oceanview that made us happy. If you can go for a 6th floor room 610 and above. Maintenance issues may be a problem this summer, We had a problem with our room lock, but with the remodel in the fall all the doors will have RFID locks and many more improvements. Meanwhile it is still a well run and pleasant well located property. Dated but comfortable.

dahlmanm, Redmond, Oregon 22/05/2017

Room 306 they will tell you is full ocean view. Only if you stand to the far right of the room immediately at the very dirty windows will you have a substantial ocean view. From there you will also gaze out over the metal rooftop and a couple roads. We've enjoyed many full ocean view rooms, this is not one. The room smells very strongly of dog. Pool/spa had cloudy water. We passed. For the money there are far more nice places to stay on the Oregon coast.

Judy K, General Manager at Best Western Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
I am very sorry you were disappointed with your stay, I noticed you were in a pet room and we try very hard to keep them as clean as our other rooms. I do hope you will come back and stay with us again. I do appreciate all of your comments. Judy

"Any size dog allowed!!"

Meg B, Dallas, Oregon 17/05/2017

Going to the beach always involves our 3 dogs (golden retrievers and Weim) , and who wants to go for just 1 day, especially if you hit a beautiful day! We have discovered that most hotels limit the size of dog allowed, usually 25lb or less. Not sure of THAT logic? BW Agate Beach does not have a size limit. The "dog" rooms are always so clean, no sign of previous pets and no pet damage. We have always booked rooms on the top floor which provides quick access to the parking lot via the sky bridge. The rooms all have sliding doors to a mini balcony ( 2 feet) but it still always a lot of fresh air and a beautiful view of the beach and ocean. The only draw back is beach access. You do cross a street and have to balance on a board to cross a muddy spot to get to the ocean, but it's well worth it if you want a very nice place to stay with your furry family. Have fun!!

Judy K, General Manager at Best Western Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
I am glad that you like that we are pet friendly. I wish we could come up with a plan that would make a better access to the beach but since it's not our property not sure what we could do. Thank you for your review. Judy

X2662OAalejandroa, Modesto, California 15/05/2017

Staff here was very helpful, especially Ann who helped explain my points on rewards and a miscommunication between another service member. While the views are not as good as the Hallmark Resort, this hotel still has one of the better locations in Newport. You can hear the waves crash when when you go to sleep at might. The room and hotel are up to date and nothing really seems dated. For the price, it is comparable to other lodging options in the area. If you use your debit card there will be a $50 incidental fee hold in your card unless you pay the charge upfront without the hold. Not a big deal as other hotels hold for a higher fee. I don't think this is the very best hotel in Newport bit it is one of the better ones. I highly recommend and that is why I am giving it a high score.

TravelinThompsons, Portland, Oregon 14/05/2017

I purchased our time here via a Groupon so we got a very good deal to stay here. When we arrived, it was a little startling to see how far away and high up most of the parking was from the hotel but this turned out not to be a problem at all. The parking lot is at the same level as the top floor of the hotel (6 floors I believe) and there is a concrete walkway over the lower parking lot and roadway by the reception desk that goes right into the hotel and is near the elevators. There was limited parking on the main floor of the hotel but this was full each time we looked. The view from the ocean facing rooms is very nice. The rooms are a bit dated but clean and functional including a small fridge and microwave. We did call room service to get more pillows as the king size bed only had four small square pillows. The patio door to the outside area of the room was standing room only but it was nice to get some fresh ocean air. It was a good location for our exploration of Newport and the Oregon Coast.

One would have to go a very long way to get a better view of the ocean than I had at the Agate Beach Inn. Whew! The service was stellar. Check in was okay as I had to wait for a room to be available. To her credit the front desk clerk called me when a room was available. Then meals were great. The atmosphere was very accommodating as well. Overall I highly recommend this property.

B8119CQamys, Sacramento, California 01/05/2017

Hotel was very loud, could hear through the walls and doors extremely easily. We were also woken up twice by phone calls being made between other rooms that were mistakingly being routed to our room. When I notified the front desk about this I was told that the phone lines were "acting up" due to the new internet service and that we should just unplug our phone. I like being able to sleep during my vacation, won't be staying at this hotel again.

Judy K, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
I am very sorry about the problems that occurred during your stay, Yes we were having new WiFi equipment installed and it affected the phone.

A week here is simply not long enough. This spot is close to everything up and down the coast. Easy access, Friendly staff, clean and cozy. The restaurant food could have been a bit more edible, but their chowder was good. Have stayed here before and honestly it hasn't changed much. Yes will probably stay again.

"Beware of bed bugs!"

User 27/04/2017

Planned to stay 2 nights last month, but the 1st morning, woke up with bites on neck, hand and arm. Yep, bed bugs. The hotel's response? We'll get up there and spray the room! Don't think I'm going back into a room with bugs and now spray, do you?? No offer to move us ... that is until we said we didn't want to stay another night. And, no offer of anything. I ended up dealing with the corporate office, sending the horrible photos, which I won't share, and letting them know that I had been to doctor 3 times to deal with the repercussions of the bites. Too little, too late describes their handling of this situation. Only after corporate spoke with General Manager did they finally offer more Best Western points, then a refund. No Best Western points for me ... BW will no longer be on my list of places to stay. Traveling in over 35 countries, I've never had this experience. Customers will share information with friends (and the world). Hopefully BW learned that immediate customer service is the best course of action.

I am very sorry that you feel this way! We had the room thoroughly checked professionally and there were no signs of bed bugs as I had let you know. I am very sorry for your experience and hope that you don't Blame the Brand by your experience with us! Judy

"Just Average"

emariemyers, Welches, Oregon 24/04/2017

The positive: the rooms were clean, the view was beautiful, the bedding and pillows nice, the salt water pool room was enjoyable, the restaurant convenient. The negative: the balconies are a joke with standing room only, the beds were dated and uncomfortable and we could feel hard spots and sunken spots, the restaurant food was just average, the waitress was snarky and jaded, even though we called down and confirmed the bar was open (for another 1.5 hours) we found it closed 15 minutes later... on our anniversary when we were hoping to have drinks and not have to drive. Everything left more to be desired, we will stay elsewhere in the future.

Michael P, Seaside, Oregon 24/04/2017

Always one of our favorites, we stay here most of the time when visiting Newport, OR. The place seems to grow on you and feels like we just belong there during our stay. it is close to Agate beach and Walmart. You can walk the beach to Yaquina head and, there is always the light house.

"Unwelcoming check in"

3
User 23/04/2017

Upon check in, I was not even greeted, it was more like "all help who is ever next" not even recognized as rewards member. I asked for express check out and that did not happen. The rooms are clean, the bed and pillows are extremely cozy, we tried to enjoy the jacuzzi, but there was so much chlorine, that within 5 minutes your eyes were burning, the hotel was full, so we found limited parking, this Best Western has no free breakfast, but their restaurant does offer a chefs special for 5$ it's only 1 item, so if you don't like it, then plan to pay what I thought was a hefty price for a so so breakfast. Had some issues using points for one of my 2 rooms, and was greeted after I arrived back from dinner by a somewhat rude message on my room phone. So less then stellar service in my book. However the ladies in the morning were warm and welcoming, took care of my checkout, apologized, etc they saved this review otherwise I would rate a 2, due to lack of service, the breakfast, and the pool issuem

Diana E, Eugene, Oregon 19/04/2017

Love the location! beautiful view of ocean - worth the extra dollars to get a room on the ocean side. All rooms are spacious with large windows, sitting area, comfortable beds and a small counter area with microwave and refrigerator. There is a large pool and jacuzzi area. Eat right in the building at the reasonable bar and restaurant which also have great views. Nice beach for walking...not crowded...we will return...

The hotel is clean, nice rooms. It was really nice being just across from the beach. Wish the walking path to the beach was a little safer and lit better for access at night. We paid $150 per night. They do have a restaurant but it is pricey as well. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

User 11/04/2017

The hotel looks like it was straight out of 1980. It has good access to Newport and a nice view of the ocean from the lobby. The room was big and clean with a nice view of the parking lot. One huge drawback is that the room is almost devoid of outlets. There were multiple outlets on the desk but no outlet available near the nightstand for a breathing machine. The bathroom was decent but the only available soap was a small tube of body wash by the sink. The pool was nice and great for families. It was also unusual for a BW not to have a breakfast included.

The room was clean but bed was very firm. The ocean view was nice and there is close beach access. I didn't realize that the balconies were so small when I booked. There is room to stand on the balcony but not sit. The balconies are connected but separated but some bars. I was afraid to leave the sliding glass door open because someone from another room could easily get on to other balconies. We also had a little dog come though our balcony in to our room when we arrived. Average hotel. Might stay again.

Andrew B, Camas, United States 10/04/2017

We stayed at this hotel for a treat for our grandsons during spring break. We chose Newport due to a event at the Marine Science Center. Plus my wife has stayed here before in one of the ocean view rooms for girls weekend and she never had a problem. We are diamond elite, I stay at best westerns approximately 3 nights every week. With that said it was even acknowledged at check in. My wife was not able to get a ocean side room so we had a room with no view. The room was on the small side. What got us was the beds, they were extremely uncomfortable. One bed was lumpy and the other felt just worn out. Our grandsons ages 9 & 11 opted to sleep on the floor the second night because they got such a bad night sleep the first night. My wife who is not a morning person was up and down all night and both mornings was up before sunrise just because she could not get comfortable. Pretty sad that after a day of activities that we couldn't get a good nights sleep.Needless to say by the time we got home we all went to bed early because we were all so exhausted. The hotel was sold out and I was told no room change available.

Renee002, Hollister, California 25/11/2016

Beautiful area, nice pool, comfortable room...A family with a small child was next to us and he kept kicking the adjoining room door until they took him to the pool for exercise, then he slept well! The breakfast is not complimentary. We ordered off the appetizer menu and got strange shrimp wontons with an unusual dipping sauce (not bad, just not expected-I thought they'd be fried, not steamed). We also ordered the Tillamook fondue and got a strange concoction with olive tapenade on the side and bread inside the fondue as well as on the side. As an appetizer for one, it would have served maybe 6. Don't think they had grab bars in the bath tub.

Room was outdated (popcorn ceiling falling off) but clean. Beach side room view was beautiful and close access.

In summary the cost of the room outweighed the value.

Beautiful quiet location above spectacular Agate beach with very good accommodations. Rooms are large and ones facing the ocean have the impressive beach and ocean view up to the lighthouse. The staff were most accommodating and helpful in knowing how to park at the 6th floor level and take a bridge back to the hotel. The restaurant has the impressive ocean view and had a large menu and service can be slow and not a place for a quick breakfast. The menu had many choices and one for low calorie was a delicious surprise - a banana-strawberry-yogurt-granolo attractive dish that was excellent We attended a conference there for 3 days and had banquets for 200 persons and had excellent selections and attentive service.

The hotel is clean and well-appointed. The staff are very nice and professional. this would have been a great experience but for the noise from the fans on the roof. We were in a pet-friendly room on the top floor and the noise level was really unacceptable. The staff offered to move us, but at 2am my husband was already asleep (he can sleep thru anything), so they brought up some ear plugs. I think I got about 3 hours. Once they get the noise situation fixed, this would be a perfect hotel to stay in with your dog. It is a short walk to the beach and very dog-friendly.

Our first stay with Best/W. on this trip was in Prineville Or. it was a very nice room and clean and comfortable, a very good breakfast. A nice stay all around, just passing through. Reasonable Prices. Then on to the coast, we stayed at Ocean Breeze motel a very nice place, but not close to a Rest. We have stayed at the Florence Best/w. before but this time it was out of our price range. Would like to stay there again though. Then on to Newport one of our favorite places to stay! Best/West Agate Beach!!! Where we run back and forth from Newport to Florence, beach combing and site seeing. Would always like to have a Rm. facing the beach wasn't lucky this time .We had a Great time. The weather was perfect so we didn't spend much time in our room. We stayed at the Fireside Motel a large room, the biggest Rm. we stayed in, but no l view. But closer to our road home. All an all our trip was made more enjoyable staying at Best Western. Thank You Very Much!!!!!

Stayed for a conference - so had little choice. I guess you get what you pay for... Curtains in room were seriously ripped; windows in my room rattled and were drafty. Dead squashed fly on shower ceiling (housekeeping never saw it during my stay). Front desk staff distracted - they need better training or a desk bell! Hillside room was private and looking onto a lovely green slope. 6th floor is very convenient to guest parking.

My issue with this hotel was that they didn't clean our room. There are instructions that if you don't want to be disturbed in the morning by the cleaning staff then to put the sign on the door, and then change it before 1pm so that you can have your room made up later, which we did. We left well before 1pm, made sure to change sign and didn't return back to our room until later that evening. First off, when we checked in there was an almost empty toilet roll left, so after 4 people using the bathroom it went fast for what was even there. Since our room wasn't made up we notified the front desk that we needed all paper products because tissue was also out. 20 minutes went by and still no one came up. Yes, we could have easily went down ourselves, but when we called they said they were sending someone up. And to be honest, when I'm on vacation and paying for services I expect a certain level of service as well. After we finally got that I called the desk myself to report our room had not been made up and they acted like they had no idea that was the case, after my husband had already let them know when we got back. So I told them we didn't have towels and the garbage needed to be taken out. They finally sent someone up with the towels and the man started to leave and I told him about the garbage and he made no move to get it so I emptied it and handed it to him while he stood out in the hallway and then my 4 year old daughter ran to the bathroom and pulled that sack out as well, which made me mad because that isn't her job to be doing. I do not think I am above such things, but as I stated, I expect a certain amount of service for what we paid to stay there. We always try and stay at Best Western because we know what to expect in terms of cleanliness and service and this time we felt let down. The staff didn't seem to care about addressing our complaint either when I told them at the front desk; once on the phone and again at checkout. My mother has a hard time getting around so we do need to spend a certain amount of time in our room to recharge and would have appreciated a fresh setting.

Stayed one night, view of beach and ocean were great. Hotel staff were very nice and professional. Construction between beach and hotel was not a problem and noise was minual. Some very loud people attending some type of convention was the only negative.

KarinMarie67, Kirkland, Washington 27/09/2016

I chose this hotel mostly because they provided ocean view rooms that were pet friendly. So many hotels require that pets be on the first floor and that often obstructs the view, so i was very grateful for that policy and the view was lovely!! The pet friendly room was clearly a room that had seen a lot of pets...which I have learned to live with since I insist on bringing my dog on vacation with me. They offer dog treats and linens that are especially for the dog. The hotel is directly across the street from the beach....but it is a long walk to the water! The staff was friendly and generous with their time...and by the way, kind to my dog, which I always appreciate.

"Nice views - Stuffy Rooms"

jeg3894, Peoria, Arizona 21/09/2016

This hotel sits on a great view of the sand beach, but that's where it stops. The rooms do not have any way to let in outside fresh air and are very stuffy. No air conditioning but they do have a miniature wall heater with filthy grates. There's no way we would turn the fan only on that unit. Managements solution was to bring a fan into the room which would only circulate the stuffy inside air. There are too many other hotels in the area to select from and this hotel does not live up to the Best Western brand.

Judy K, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
I am sorry your were disappointed with your stay. I know this doesn't help your stay but we will be doing a full remodel the winter of 2017 and we are putting in air conditioning.

Best western Agate Beach is definately dated as far as the rooms but it is nice you don't have a town surrounding you. We booked a room about 3 months out for an ocean view on a special occasion. We checked in and later were told we had to switch rooms due to overbooking. They wanted to move us to a hillside view. I argued, to no avail, that I had booked the room 3 months prior and I was sure I had booked prior to the people that were to get our room. Made no difference we had to move. We have stayed there many times prior to this over the years and were completely dissatisfied. Made no sense us having to move.

Judy K, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
I am so sorry to hear about your experience and the moving of rooms. I will look into this. I look forward to our hotel being fully renovated winter of 2017. I apologize for your inconvenience. I do hope you will give us another try. Judy

BeachBob_9, Alberta 18/09/2016

We were travelling the Oregon Coast for the first time, beautiful. Unlike many, we take our chances with hotels rather than reserving ahead; can get away with that in September; don't necessarily recommend that strategy. Worked well at Best Westerm in Astoria so they got our business again as we entered Newport. Oops!....this is not that kind of hotel. Didn't realize Best Western did this; always saw them as a "budget, travellers" hotel.... Must say that the rate was good, room was fine except for covers and pillows (lacking substance) But this is a hotel designed for people wanting to stay and play on the beach...who knew? The views of and access to Agate Beach are excellent, the beach itself is excellent. It just wasn't the hotel for us, overnighters. The desk clerk wasn't exactly forthcoming when I asked about breakfast; didn't mention that it wasn't free like I thought it was at all Best Westerns ?? The Sports Bar was nice. This is a hotel more suited to a conference than passing through.

Richard N, Portland, Oregon, United States 17/09/2016

The hotel is located just off the North edge of a prospering Historic Oregon Coast town. The site is near the main Costal Highway, but on the very quiet side, facing the Ocean Beaches. The facility is above any Tsunami Zone, with a good view of the Sea, the Surf, the Beach and the forest. There is a quite good Restaurant on location. Within blocks of any goods or services and visits to historical businesses, and one of the Worlds great Aquariums. Sunsets are spectacular as is any "walk on the beach". It is a very good open, off leash pet exercise too.

We liked the looks of this hotel via pix online. We we were just passing through Newport. Sadly- not impressed. Gave us the worst room ever. 5th fl corner room below bridge to parking lot. Heard suitcases wheels all night. Tear in curtains. Very dated. In need of a refresh. And should put that horrible 5th floor room out of order for good.

Anita H, Grants Pass, United States 15/09/2016

The hotel is located overlooking a beautiful beach just north of Newport - an excellent location. The restaurant food was also excellent and service was good, with the exception of a very confused breakfast staff one morning. There was no complimentary breakfast at this Best Western in contrast to most, but the menu selections were reasonably priced. The rooms and beds were comfortable as expected and the staff friendly.

User 14/09/2016

There's direct ocean view rooms available at a nominal price over hillside views. Get one of these. Only issue with our room was there's a construction site on the edge of the grounds. Our room looked directly at/over that site. Cannot that be hidden a bit somehow? Also, the path from the hotel to the beach goes by this site. Hotel is a bit dated, and lobby very boring, restaurant and bar could use a makeover, but these again look out to the ocean. So, the hotel represents a pretty good value if you want ocean views at a reasonable price. It's a few miles North of Newport's downtown, and tourist areas but very near the lighthouse (also good view of the lighthouse from the oceanview rooms). I comment that we had a top floor room, not sure how good the view would be from say the first or second floor, be sure to check, first floor may be blocked, and second floor as well.

I stayed here for one night and to start off the location of this hotel is north of the main part of Newport so to get to the downtown area or the Oregon Coast Aquarium you would have to drive to it but its a short and easy drive. Upon check in was quick and easy with friendly staff. and the elevators were just around the corner from the check in desk. Once we got to the room, which was a coast view, it was quite a surprise to have a great view of the water with a small balcony. The bed was a great size with a small desk and two chairs. Along with a good size TV, microwave and fridge. For anybody looking for a hotel that's not to expensive and has a good view I would recommend this hotel

Wish we could've spent more time here; you can walk to the beach from the hotel. One downside was no free breakfast.

Landonjk, Sherwood, Oregon 06/09/2016

The family needed one last weekend get-away before school started and Newport was perfect! Since it was a holiday weekend, most everything was booked and rates were going up. I waited one day too long and it cost me an extra $50. Total was $205 plus tax per night, so good on you if you get it for less. We packed into a double queen room (2 adults and 4 kids under the age of 8.) Tight fit, but it worked. Clean room that was adequate. Nothing fancy. I would say we had an ocean view, not really ocean front compared with the Hallmark. There is direct beach access to agate beach that's a short walk. The pool was nice and the kids enjoyed it. About the town: Everyone knows about the aquarium here, but I would recommend spending a morning at the historic Nye Beach area and getting fresh pastries from Panini Bakery. We will come back just for the sourdough! (It's where many restaurants including Mo's gets their bread!)

We were here for three nights. At first our room was not handicap accessible, but the staff quickly remedy that. The hotel does have a full service restaurant and bar. The only issue that we had was the room is scheduled for re-model in the off season. We kept finding small pieces of the old-fashioned, popcorn ceiling flaky off. Be advised to close your suitcase when out and about. That resulted in our lower rating for cleanliness.

The view of the beach was unbelievable and the restaurant in the hotel was great, good service and good food!! The only thing I would of liked is air conditioner we came in on a very hot weekend and they only had a fan so that was a little disappointing. We had a great time, and we will consider coming back to this hotel.

Fred H, Central Point, United States 29/08/2016

What I liked: 1. The excellent view of Agate Beach and Yaquina Lighthouse from our room. 2. Easy access to the beach. 3. 2 Large chairs which are actually comfortable to sit in for watching the ocean or the television. 4. Good WIFI 5. Bed was comfortable. What I didn't like: 1. The inn had the atmosphere more of a convention center than a place one would want to spend the night while on vacation. 2. The staff was cordial and efficient, but a little shy of warm and friendly. 3. As my wife put it, "This place screams of luxury in some ways, and of cheapness in others." Lots of little things we find at other Best Western motels were not available here. 4. The parking lot location and access to the parking lot are not well designed. Two of the three entry/exit points are now blocked and you must drive your vehicle through a narrow space to come and go. 5. No free light breakfast is available, but coffee is available in the lobby 24 hrs. 6. Because of a convention going on, there was partying going on until past midnight, which meant loud talking in the hallways and lots of banging doors. I was willing to pay extra to get an upgraded experience for my wife on our anniversary weekend trip. We still had a good time, but will be looking for another place to stay the next time we come to Newport.

"Check in was bad"

Mick P, lincoln, United States 28/08/2016

after driving 400 miles, check in was a disaster. I was told check in was 4pm but they might get us in soon with reservations of 2 nights & they would call my cell phone when ready. We sit in front of the check in counter on the sofa & waited. At 4:30pm while watching walk ups getting checked in ahead of us with no reservations. One couple checked in with no reservations & came back down & checked back out, said their reason was, room was bad, ocean to far away, & too expensive for the room they got. Shifts were changed & some went on break with never no mention of us sitting there or staff calling my cell when room was ready. At 1 point they told us go to the restaurant & eat to kill some time. After asking a 3rd time we got our room. The Ocean & Beach is very, very far, aprox 1/3rd of a mile from the hotel. Also, don't believe the pictures of closeness of Ocean, it's far. I don't normally write reviews but thought I should share my experience. There were smokers & other things to long to mention since this is long already.

The location was amazing! Walk across the street to a huge soft sand beach beach. Be sure to catch the sunset - it is spectacular! The Hotel has all the amenities you have come to expect from the Best Western. The reliability is a comfort, especially for the families. The breakfasts are varied and delicious. But the bar and the appetizer we had left us disappointed. The service is ok, but not outstanding. Some more training, especially in the bar, is needed. We had to ask for our water. And we had to ask for the bar menu. And there was no drink menu offered. The check in desk was a bit disorganized and was unattended at times.

"Worst Best Western I have ever stayed at"

2
Keirasmama, Battle Ground, Washington 22/08/2016

I have stayed at quite a few Best Western hotels and have always had a good experience. I am not a picky person and rarely complain, however this hotel deserves a poor rating. Our room was not ready at check in time, which is already very late in the day, 4:00pm. We tried checking in a little early, around 2, since we wanted to drop off our things and take our daughter to the aquarium. We were told our room was not ready, but they would give us a call if it was ready earlier than 4. They never called. We came back at 4 and the room was still not ready!! The front desk clerk told us to "go get something to eat or take a walk on the beach." Really?! We paid $225 for this room and couldn't even check in until 5pm, just to check out the very next day by noon!! Doesn't seem quite right to me. With the aquarium closing at 6, by the time we got to finally check in at 5, we didn't have time for the aquarium that afternoon. I had one very sad 6 year old little girl. Thanks a lot Best Western! They then told us that because of the inconvenience of not having our room ready, they would take $20 off the price of our room (which they did not do). I checked my account and we were charged the full price. The lobby was full of angry guests who's rooms were not ready. When we finally got our room keys, we opened the door to our "ocean front" room, to see that it was a partial ocean view and the main view was a little construction site. The room smelled musty and not like it had been just cleaned. To get to the ocean you have to cross a busy little street. The restaurant had ok food. Needless to say, we will never stay at this hotel again. I have stayed at much better in the town of Newport, hotels that are friendly and right on the ocean. Thumbs down, stay somewhere else!

"Drop the Best from Best Western"

679joyp, Portland, Oregon 21/08/2016

The Best Western Agate Beach Inn has on the surface everything a family needs for a good hotel stay. The hotel has a very good pool/hot tub area, a restaurant on site, microwave and refrig. in room and access to the beach. However, it isn't quite up to par with most of the Best Westerns we stay at. Things are just slightly off. First, they don't serve breakfast. The rooms need to be updated. They need to clean better. Don't go cheap on the toiletries by not giving lotion. The access to the beach is a board laid over a ditch with water. A little extra attention and the Agate Beach Inn will be able to add "Best" back into their name.

"Convenient location to Agate Beach (short drives to area attractions)"

User 18/08/2016

Property is situated north of Newport, but look fast because it is nestled in a wooded area. Thankfully there were 2 banners indicating the turn from the 101. There is limited parking on lobby level with additional parking up the bluff, with access through to floor 6. Front desk staff was friendly & informative of property's offerings (pool, grill, bar, beach access, wifi connection). We stayed in last room on 4th floor, room 432, ocean view with sliding door to outside (only enough space to stand between railing & door) that allowed in a great ocean breeze. Unfortunately it was located right above a service entrance. The view of ocean + drifts of Agate Beach + Yaquina Head Lighthouse was inspiring. The room was expected with 2 queen beds, tv, microwave, fridge, etc. The walls were thin (or maybe lacked sufficient adjacent door seals?) as we could hear side & above neighbors easily. Parts of the ceiling texture must have fallen off at some point & ever so slight mildew growth where ceiling met walls by sliding door. The beach access is down the deck stairs, along the taped off gravel lane, across Oceanview Rd, down a muddy/gravel walkway, across 2 planks over a small stream, & finally at Agate Beach! It was totally worth it. The Starfish Grill onsite had a tasty selection, efficient service, & moderate prices for convenience. Check out was easy, front desk warm & welcoming, & receipt folio accurate.

Beautiful ocean view, right on the beach. The food was fantastic. Very convenient to Old Town, and Docks. Stores, and many restaurant's within walking distance. Beach access from Hotel. Ocean view rooms, and lounge. Wonderful place to visit.

Fred T, Murray, Utah 18/08/2016

We have stayed at this motel numerous times over the past 12 years. It's got a great location with awesome ocean views. We leave the sliding doors open at night to hear the ocean roar. Love to visit here. Just walk out the back door, across a small road, and you're on the beach. It's also close to shopping, restaurants and the historic district. Nye Beach is fun to visit as are the lighthouses and Yaquina Bridge. Overall, we had a wonderful time.

This was the first day of our extended road trip vacation and was probably the smoothest since we reserved in advance. Resturant was closed due to lack of personnel but ate at the bar which was fine. Breakfast was OK.

After a long day traveling and sightseeing on the Oregon Coast my wife and I checked into the Agate Beach Inn and retired to our room on the sixth floor overlooking the ocean. Nothing could be more relaxing than watching the surf wash away onto the sandy beach from high above, in the comfort of our chairs, seated before the full glass windows. We found the hotel staff courteous and accommodating. Check-in and check-out both were expeditious, friendly, and easy. The room was clean and functional with plenty of storage space, and all amenities as advertised. We didn't visit the lounge or restaurant, however were pleased with the counter area with refrigerator, microwave, and cupboard where we easily assembled a light meal for ourselves. The décor was simple and pleasing. The bed was just the right firmness. At night we slept peacefully, lulled by the sound of the surf. Again in the morning as we sipped our complementary coffee, we enjoyed the beautiful view from our room. We were reluctant to leave! It was our first time in the Newport area, but we are sure to return, and when we do we'll glad to book a room at the Agate Beach Inn. We heartily recommend this hotel to all our fellow travelers!

Great stay, amazing helpful staff all around. Good pool size, proper H2O Temp. And top it all with a good clean all around environment. Seasonal Prices but much better than the alternatives! The location is great and pleasantly carts are available so that you can load your car onto carts wheel it into your room.

User 15/08/2016

Pros: Location! Great view of the ocean! The lobby was nice. Salt water pool was great! Pet Friendly. Good Rate. Cons: Rooms were small. No free breakfast (Major dissapointment!!) $10.00 for an additional cot (We travel with 3 kids often and not once have I ever been charged for a cot at a Best Western.) Popcorn ceilings - dropping fell on us all night. Terrible Wifi. I originally rated this as a 3 but decided to change it to a 2 because of the wifi. It took me 45 minutes just to write this review! There is so much going for this Best Western that with a little more effort and attention to detail you could easily rate this as a top 5 star hotel for the Oregon Coast. As it stands now you're left with wanting much more.

This hotel shows signs of age and wear but it's clean enough and has the basics for a decent night of sleep. Parking situation is not convenient. For top floor there are 2 handicapped spots for a large lot. Surprise, they were occupied by vehicles without tags or placards. Our room had view of parking lot and trees. Nice beach view from lobby. Restaurant staff were friendly and attentive. Beach had contamination warnings for the water but ok for walking. Vast sandy beach right by hotel.

Steve J, Dobbins, United States 13/08/2016

In general, we like this hotel--clean, efficient, pleasant; the restaurant is at least passable, rooms are well equipped and well maintained. Unfortunately, the hotel chose not to inform us that the view room we had reserved came with a full-on view of a construction site below where machinery was making a lot of noise and creating an unsightly distraction from sea and sky. The room cost nearly $200, so we found this situation unpleasant and unfair.

Front desk made promises that they could not keep, check in times, fix problems in the room. Lobby was full of people waiting for their rooms which were promised at an earlier hour. Bathroom was very small and difficult to get around in. Noise from adjoining rooms was not bad. Lounge closed at 10 PM which forced to take our drinks up to our room.

Michele S, Mill City, Oregon 10/08/2016

When arriving to the hotel it appeared nice and clean the lobby was spacious and clean with a lot of quant seating areas which was nice considering there was some sort of mix up with our reservations. We booked through TripAdvisor and requested an ocean view room. When we checked in we got a ground floor parking lot view so this is where the nice sitting areas in the lobby came in nice. While our room was spacious and clean we didn't want to spend any time in it. Normally I can sit and stair out at the ocean for hours. The front desk said since it was a 3rd party reservation there was nothing they could do and the hotel was booked. I was told to always call the hotel direct to make reservations. Lesson learned. I would definitely recommend to purchase the breakfast at the time of booking your room. It is $5 and you get a cooked to order nice hot breakfast. The staff were all very pleasant. We enjoyed having the sports bar and restaurant at the resort. The beach is I short walk across a quite street then some sand dunes. Beautiful beach. If we would have gotten the room we requested with an ocean view and a small balcony it would have been a perfect couples getaway.

"Great Hotel"

Reeny_Ward, seattle 09/08/2016

My children and I made reservations to stay at this hotel just a few days before we left on our spontaneous trip for a few days away from our home in the North Tacoma area. We had been to Newport two years prior for our first time, and stayed in a different hotel before that we enjoyed very much. We chose not to return to that hotel because the price listed on Trip Advisor for a room for our three-day mid-week trip was insane. It was double what we were going to be paying at the Best Western. We checked into the Agate and we were very happy with the cleanliness of the room and the kindness of the staff. There is a restaurant and a bar in the hotel and our first night we ordered room service from the hotel restaurant. I'd give the food a 3 on a scale of 1 to 5. It was nothing too impressive, although the menu you had some very good choices, but the flavor was so so; nothing to write home about. Of course there was a 19% tip included in the fee for room service added to the bill so I did not tip the person who delivered our food. Having worked in the restaurant business most of my younger life, I felt really bad about this, but a 19% charge to deliver food to the room seems like a lot and I even double-checked with the person who answered the phone to make sure that I was being charged that and told them that there would be no tip for delivery. The food was delivered with a smile and if there was something we needed the staff was more than happy to get us whatever we wanted. They have a beautiful pool and hot tub as well as a workout room. I would happily return here again as the price was absolutely reasonable. As far as ordering from the restaurant, I might be more inclined to eat out elsewhere but the restaurant food was ok in a pinch. We did not eat breakfast there, so I can't comment on that, but we did have lunch and dinner with dinner being delivered to the room and lunch in the restaurant itself which had a good view of the beach, an outdoor patio, and it was very clean and had a nice atmosphere. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice clean place to stay with updated rooms that included a microwave, a coffee maker and hair dryer as well as an ironing board and iron. One side of the hotel faces a parking lot comma which isn't so bad if you're more than three floors up. We were two floors up and felt uncomfortable leaving our patio door open during the evening so we did not. The other side of the hotel faces the beach and I'm sure if we had been on that side of the hotel we would have been more likely to leave our patio door open. I would absolutely turn to this hotel and the only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars is that I think the restaurant food could be better.

Steve M, Bothell 09/08/2016

A very good example of a Best Western motel. Clean and comfortable room with a fantastic view right across a small street from the ocean. Not the fanciest place on the coast but an excellent value. a short walk to the beautiful beach. If motels are your thing, this is the place.

Strongly recommend because of the wonderful front desk crew....all of them. Clean rooms. Lovely beach view. Fans brought to room to block noise of pool as we were right next to it. They did the trick perfectly. Short walk to the beach. Only criticism...they do not include breakfast...they should. Don't come expecting to spend time on your balcony. They are more for fresh air and a view from inside. Balconies are narrow and do not have space for chairs. Still...do stay here. Beach is lovely. Staff is wonderful. Rooms are clean.

A large window gave us an outstanding view of the local beach and coastline. Just about everything works really well at this hotel. We managed to turn the one negative into a positive. It was surprising that such a large hotel/motel did not have a guest laundry. Nevertheless, we found a laundry nearby which did an excellent job for a very reasonable price. Good location for getting to sights and services.

Molly D, Sandy, United States 04/08/2016

We arrived with the family to visit my husband who was in town for business. Check-in was quick (and they have a AAA discount) and we were very happy with our two comfortable, double queen rooms with connecting door. The beautiful Agate beach was literally a stone throws away and a great beach for kids to run around and play in the sand. There is a short walk way from the hotel to the beach. I especially liked the skybridge which connects the overflow lot with the hotel - it made hauling children easy to and from the car. We left early the next day to explore Nye Beach and Newport Aquarium and were grateful for the tasty coffee brewed in the room, and then noticed the complimentary coffee in the lobby (great place to stay caffeinated!). I wish we had more time to try out the pool and will be back!

Michael P, Monterey, United States 03/08/2016

Great location! Staff could be friendlier. No breakfast included, yet a higher room rate then other BWs that include breakfast, even when located on the waterfront. Housekeeping needs to come back and pick up room service trays with old food that have been left in the hallway. I really don't want to see another guest's leftover spaghetti the day after I arrived.

I stayed at the Best Western Agate Beach Inn for 2 nights with a couple of friends. From the moment I stepped into the lobby, I was very impressed with the big, airy, open space and the beautiful views of the ocean. Our room was very comfortable and clean with 2 queen beds and sliding glass doors that looked out onto the beach. It was important to my friends and me that we be very close to the beach. We were directly across the street which made it easy to walk there. The food at the Best Western was very good and the servers were friendly and courteous. They had a breakfast special every morning for $5 which was filling and good.

Ron S, Tulare, California 01/08/2016

I made the reservation by phone around 11:30 AM with one special request: I need a room close to parking and parking close to the room - one of us is disabled and has limited walking abilities". Best Western's response was "okay, no problem". At check in (around 5:00 PM) I introduced myself and reminded the girl at the desk of my request and she said 'okay Mr. Snow I have you in room 227 and you can park on top of that hill over there and walk across that bridge to the elevators'. I asked where room 227 was and was directed to the END of the hallway (There are only two rooms further) - and "park on top of that hill"? really? I politely said that was un-acceptable and we would find a different place to stay. She said that's all she had and she couldn't do anything else. Another employee overheard this conversation and offered me a wheelchair. The first girl was surprised they had a wheelchair. We took it, we were tired and thought it might be hard to find another place. Oh, and another thing, the first girl said she had no idea why all the handicapped rooms are at that end of the hallway. We were NOT given a handicapped room. We generally like Best Westerns, that was the fourth one in ten days. Nice room, nice view, we won't be back. When I originally called to reserve a room I should have been told "sorry, we don't have anything", that would have been fine.

I am so sorry that your stay with us did not go how it should have. We are still training some new staff that is why she wasn't aware of the wheel chair. We are getting ready to do some remodeling that will hopefully give us rooms closer to entrance for those needing a wheel chair or have mobility needs. Again I apologize and I hope you will reconsider giving us another try. Thank you, Judy

After a day long journey up US 101 Agate Beach Inn is a welcome and lovely spot. The ocean view is spectacular as you watch the setting sun. Very tempted to extend our stay, thoroughly enjoy the stop for the evening. The recently updated rooms have very comfortable beds and a comfortable sitting area. You can turn the chairs to watch the dunes , beach and sunset.

It's great that the hotel has ocean views and beach access. But I experienced very poor customer service and a general lack of caring. I would not recommend this hotel unless they trained their staff better. Rooms were not cleaned until very late in the afternoon. I called to request a couple of things for the room, and it took over half an hour to arrive. The wifi is exceedingly slow, and I was mostly kicked off of it. They were doing construction right outside of the balcony, so that was a bummer as well. No one who works here acts like they want to be here.

Judy K, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review
I am very sorry you left our hotel feeling this way! I know we have had some days that getting the rooms cleaned on time has created a hardship on our guests and I apologize for that.

BulletBob777, Salt Lake City, Utah, United States 29/07/2016

NO AIR CONDITIONING. Got that! NO AC. If you read no more of this review thats fine just remember NO AC! No other reviews mentions that, why???? I don't get it. Its 2016!! What hotel in america has NO AC? A heater but no cold air. Why I ask the desk: because we are by the ocean open the sliding glass door they say. That only works when its cool outside due to the humidity. Also only works when on the ocean side. On the street side its noisy as heck with cars driving by in parking lot and on major road 500 feet away. Its hot in the hotel too, hallways and lobby. Beds are hard and uncomfortable. There is a reason they are affordable its because they are cheap. Remember. NO AC.

tim1962, Fredericksburg, Virginia 25/07/2016

I enjoyed spending a night here. It's not a 5 star but it's up on a bluff overlooking the Pacific ocean and has a lot going for it. My room (“King Ocean view room”) was ample sized, with plenty of room to walk around a king bed, two wing chairs, a desk, two night stands, a dresser with 32” TV, and a small balcony. And it looked exactly as shown on their website. Maybe not the most fashionable or luxurious, but it was clean, safe, and comfortable. The hotel was furnished in the days before everyone carried electronic devices, so there's no place by the bed to plug in. However, the desk had a 4-outlet power strip. WiFi was included and adequate. The bathroom was about average, but just outside the door was a handy counter/bar with microwave, coffeemaker, and fridge. There was no A/C, but you can open the sliding glass door and cool off the room in minutes thanks to the ocean breeze. And enjoy the sound of the surf while that's happening. And watch the sunset. This hotel has 6 floors. If you're a light sleeper that's the place to be. The rooms facing the ocean have even numbers, and those across the hall facing the woods have odd numbers. Downstairs is the Starfish Grill restaurant (B/L/D) which is moderately priced, and pretty good. Also in the lowest level, by the beach access door, is Rookies Sports Bar. This is a good, friendly place to hang out, and much nicer than some hotel bars because of all the large windows and views to the beach. There is no “complimentary” breakfast here. Instead, the restaurant offers a daily $5 breakfast special. (On my visit, it was biscuits & gravy, a plate full of heavy food that will keep you going for a long time.) I ordered an omelet, with homemade sausage, that was quite good. To be honest, I prefer this approach to the typical “free” buffets that kids mess up. The service was great. A short walk down a trail takes you to the beach, and to a paved walkway that goes up and down the coast. Your kids and dogs will love both. The beach is very wide and sandy. The hotel is next to the Agate Beach State Park, and has views of the Yaquina Head Lighthouse. The hotel website warns of a City of Newport project that could cause noise. The city is building a small concrete building (Big Creek Pump Station) between the hotel and the beach, scheduled for completion this fall. This is far enough away from the hotel that construction noise only occasionally is heard above the surf, and they only seem to work during daylight. The work site has a small footprint, so it's a very small part of the overall view from an oceanside room. There is direct walking access to the beach across a small paved road that runs behind the hotel. The property is on the north edge of town, and hidden by woods. Fortunately a dense strip of forest separates the hotel from US101. That keeps the noise down since this is a busy highway. There are flags and signs telling you where to turn. There are no restaurants or night life within convenient walking distance; you will have to drive if you don't want to stay on premises. You can walk on side streets about half a mile south to a few restaurants, Wal-Mart, or Fred Meyer. In my opinion, the old waterfront (Bay Blvd.) is the best area to go anyway, where the fresh seafood, the marina, and several tourist attractions are located. Or check out Nye Beach. If I were going to spend a week in Newport, I'd probably look for a house to rent, but for a night or two, this hotel seems like one of the best choices compared to the others in Newport. The price is reasonable for the area. Overall, I would recommend it.

Judy K, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Agate Beach Inn, responded to this review

Glenn B, Dubuque, Iowa 25/07/2016

We had a great weekend staying there. The room was very clean and modern. The king size bed was firm and we loved looking at the ocean. It was a nice size room and very comfortable with a mini fridge and microwave. However, there are no balconies in this hotel though the pictures may look like there are. We were looking foward to sitting out there watching the ocean, but you can barely stand. We left the sliding doors open all night and enjoyed the ocean breeze. This hotel was packed with families, the pool jammed with kids and there floaties, so walk over to the beach for quiet. If you don't want to walk 200 yards and cross a small road (really just a 5 min walk) you can drive down and park. The breakfast at the restaurant was very good. We stay at a lot of Hiltons and this hotel is just as good. Locally, the Newport Cafe is good to eat at too. It's a 10 minute drive to the aquarium or museum. Thanks to the housekeeping staff, they do a great job on the room each day, making it look like you just arrived. Check in was fast too. Really worth the 205.00 a night. We will be back.

Harleyca100, Roseburg, Oregon 24/07/2016

This hotel has great views, it's close to the city yet quiet, the rooms are pretty nice, the pillows suck and they still haven't learned to put plug in's close to the beds and the wifi crawls on and on. Been here before, threats to not come back and yet I do for the quiet. They do try, the staff is always nice and helpful and are allowed to discuss rates. Management, in the other hand, needs to learn how to manage housekeeping and run a motel. I don't even try to eat here based on past experiences, don't know if it's changed and hope it has but not going to take a chance in getting bad food again. Biggest complaint! Even though they try, they seem to be determined to mess up some how, never quite be perfect. The latest and greatest is a 4:00PM check in time. Seriously? For real? "We will call you when your room is ready, 4:45 PM. Really folks? This is simply not acceptable and a sign that no one is really paying attention to housekeeping needs and demands. Grrrrrrr Check out at 12:00 PM is a good feature, so they got that half right. Anyway, IF you decide to stay here plan on getting in late, eat first and enjoy the great views and the nice staff.

We stayed here a couple of years ago and it was OK then. It hasn't improved any and is still just OK. We stay here because it is conveniently located for our planned activities. We'll definitely stay somewhere else next year. For the price, it was not a good value. It was clean enough but pretty worn out. It needs a thorough renovation. Most of the staff was friendly but the bartender at the sports bar was kind of abrupt. Maybe he was having a bad day.

User 14/07/2016

There were not full sized pillows on the bed. They were more the size of a throw pillow. You can hear everything from inside your room and the staff doesn't seem to support concerns related to noise or barking dogs left in rooms. If you are traveling with a pet you will be on the 6th floor. In order to take your dog out to potty, you will have to cross the sky bridge and then a parking lot before you will reach a small patch of grass. The beach is a short walk down a rocky path, across a busy street, over two small pieces of wood that are the only thing between you and a mud pit. Then you must traverse the many sand dunes before reaching the shoreline. No AC and no screen on the door to the balcony. It was our wedding anniversary and one of the worst hotel experiences we've had. We left ASAP the next morning stressed and exhausted from not sleeping. We got an "oh I'm sorry to hear that" as they slide my final bill across the counter for me to sign.

The hotel staff was really friendly and responsive.

Overall, a very good experience. The hotel is a little bit on the older side, but it is clean and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. And, of course, the location is awesome -- right next to the beach. This Best Western provides in-room service for breakfast and dinner -- and that is really nice for people like me are not really "morning people" and who don't really use the "free breakfast" option offered at so many hotels. Sometimes it just nice to be able to order a full breakfast and have it delivered to your room so you don't have to get all dressed up and functional to head down to a public scene before you've even had your morning caffeine!

You can't miss if you stay here! Get an ocean view room for $149 you can't beat it. The on site restaurant isn't so great, so drive to a nearby place to eat. Great staff and great location! Would stay here again!

an ok hotel. Not cheap at all, but you get good quality for that. Slow and free internet. Warm, not hot coffee in lobby - free. Counter, fridge and microwave in the room - big plus. Great view from the windows if you buy sea view. Not on the beach, but quite close. Was noisy due to construction. Nice swimming pool. Poor gym. Breakfast is not included and is expensive la-carte.

Be aware that there is not breakfast included with the room. I didn't realize that. For the price (I realize it's a coastal town) it should have included breakfast. They do offer a $5 special in their restaurant. Didn't try it, cheesy eggs and ham with cheesy potatoes. Didn't sound so good.

Hotel accommodations were very good, with the exception of the only access to water was in the bathroom...bed was extremely comfortable. That alone would make us want to stay again...restaurant was good service but lacked in a couple menu items ordered (gravy & item amounts served). Other than that I would recommend the Agate Beach Inn to friends and family.

We don't usually stay in Best Westerns, but ended up here as we were making our way through the coastal towns from Seattle down to San Fran. This is an older facility, but it was well kept and clean. The clerk behind the desk was super friendly and nice. I wished I had caught her name. We were able to do our laundry on site which was a huge help considering we had been on the road for 6 days and still had another 5 to go. The breakfast was cooked fresh - not like some of the other hotels that just provided a lot of pastries and some thing that looked sort of like eggs. The beach is also very accessible down the path across the road. I walked there the evening we stayed and could not get over how peaceful and beautiful it was. I walked for a long while and saw a group riding horses thru the surf during sunset. Would definitely stay here again.

For the price we paid for this room breakfast should have been included! Parking was awful! There should have been parking for guests and separate parking for those using the conference rooms. The view was great! from the balcony! not our room. Internet not so great. Our remote did not work.

"We Cut Our Stay Short!!!!"

User 30/06/2016

Unfortunately, our stay at BW Agate Beach was cut short due to a multiplicity of problems: A dirty room was the worst. Beer bottle caps left on the floor, multiple pieces of plastic garbage and old toilet paper was left by housekeeping that my 10 month old baby got to before I could and put into her mouth. The decor was very dysfunctional and left you feeling uneasy. The beds were hard and there was no breakfast offered unless you wanted to pay for it in Best Western's restaurant. And lastly, we were on the 5th floor and the hot water pressure was terrible. It burned you every other 10 seconds or went extremely cold. It seems to fluctuate with the other floors hot water usage and/or when different toilets on the same water pipes were flushed. We were going to stay two nights but we left after the first night and moved to a different hotel. The staff was very helpful and apologetic, and they removed the taxes and fees (about $35.00 worth) off of our total cost for one night, but it wasn't enough to keep us there for another night. I was never more happy to leave a motel then this one, sadly.

My family of four stayed here on our way to Portland. We stayed for 2 nights. Rooms were spacious and clean. The view from the top floors were amazing. No free breakfast, which would have been nice. Rather than free breakfast, they recommended their restaurant for breakfast. Everything else was pretty standard.

"Friendly staff, pet friendly, handicap room available"

BarbEugene_OR, Eugene, OR 29/06/2016

We have stayed at Best Western's for many years and are a member of their rewards program. This was our first time to stay at the BW on Agate Beach. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and accommodating when we needed some items that we have failed to pack. We needed a handicap room that was pet friendly. The biggest drawback to these requirements we had were: 1. The double queen handicap room was very small. It did have grab bars around the toilet and in the bathtub but did not have a handicap shower. 2. We had 2 dogs with us (a 2 month old puppy and an 8 year old Dachshund). The rooms do not have an outside door from the room. To take the dogs outside, one has to either go all the way through the hotel entrance to the outside, go downstairs to where the restaurant is located to the outside, or take an elevator to the 6th floor walk over a skybridge to a parking lot that has shrubs and trees around it. The elevator is just before you would walk through the lobby so not really that much of a difference once you got that far. And if you room is far away, it is even a longer walk. I found these 2 things the most bothersome to me. I like having an outside entrance from my room to take my dog out to potty, which early in the morning, I often take the dog out in my robe without having to get fully dressed. There were 3 of us in the handicap room, plus the dogs, and my husband in a wheelchair. For this reason alone, I will not book another stay there. However, the hotel staff were really very friendly and helpful.I can recommend eating at the restaurant. We had breakfasts there and one dinner. All reasonably priced and good food and wait staff.

We just returned from a 3 day trip to Newport, OR. We joined family and friends there for a fishing trip. The view from our room on the 6th floor was breathtaking. The hotel was clean, comfortable and quiet, the staff was attentive and helpful. We will stay here again.

Great location with beautiful views, but hotel could use an update - small bathrooms, could hear water running when the person next door was showering, cobwebs and dust in common areas. Beds were ok. Nice to have fridge and microwave in room and kids enjoyed pool. Was just ok.

First impression when checking into the hotel is WOW, spectacular view of the Pacific ocean! This hotel is right on the beach and the view is amazing. The hotel decor is warm, open and newly furnished. Good signage to get you around. The guest room hallways are dark and I would say this is my biggest mark against them. The rooms are large, comfortable and have a refrigerator and microwave in them. Bonus. WiFi is good and easy to access.

MaryBee_21, Winchester,VA 18/06/2016

This is a good location north of town, very close to the lighthouse. We had an Oceanview room which I recommend. There was no free breakfast but the room had a nice granite bar area with sink, microwave and fridge. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was plenty of parking. The hallway was noisy in the evening. It may have been one family with children running up and down the halls. Otherwise it was a great stay.

Stayed here for night on motorcycle trip with friends. Large room and very clean. Our room did not face the ocean but we were ok with that as we checked in later. Beach is very close. I normally do not eat at hotel restaurants but some of the guys did not feel like going out so we ate at their restaurant and all enjoyed their dinner and the wait staff were very good.

We have stayed at the Agate Beach Best Western multiple times and it is consistently excellent. They do NOT disappoint! The rooms are spotless and comfortable. Everything works as it should and the room has everything that you would need. The personnel are friendly and helpful. We have a dog and it is very accessible and pet friendly. Nice lounge area and a restaurant that is actually very good. The breakfasts are delicious especially. This hotel is our very favorite on the whole Oregon Coast and we will look forward to returning AGAIN!!! You can't beat the views especially from the higher levels. Love this Place!

We were able to stay in an ocean front room. It was very nice. The continued sound of the waves rolling onto the shore, and the near perfect 60's temperatures made for a very peaceful nights rest. The staff was courteous and caring. $5.00 breakfast specials in the restaurant were a big hit, too.

Michelle E, boise 14/06/2016

My boy and friend and I stayed for 3 nights and wished it was 7 ..Our room over looked the ocean and was spectacular I took many pictures of the ocean in all her splendor. Our room was huge with a fridge and microwave and the bed was very comfortable It was nice to have 2 chairs but they were a little uncomfortable as they had SL sagging seats .It was a little difficult as I have breathing issues and it was a long walk from the parking lot across the Skye bridge. The room was clean The shower was OK . Not as good as other places we had stayed ..the pressure was adequate. The best feature was the door that we left open at night as there is no air conditioning. This might be an issues later in summer. There were fewer electrical plugs than I had hoped for..my boyfriend and I both had to use extension cords to plug in our Cpap.I did enjoy the table and the room service was awesome the day we tried it .the best food we could have had and I really liked the vouchers we got. Overall I would definitely stay there again

The staff was always kind and helpful. Internet was running well in each hotel. I really must say that it made it perfect for my 10 year old grandson and myself with the pools and hot tubs. Thank you to all that helped us

Cheryl L, Vancouver, Washington 12/06/2016

I stopped here overnight during a trip to the southern Oregon Coast. It's conveniently located off Highway 101, near Newport, and within a short walk of the beach. The side of the hotel facing the ocean has beautiful panoramic views. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and the free wi-fi is fast and reliable. The staff is also helpful and friendly. The hotel has a restaurant and lounge. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Unlike most Best Westerns, though, breakfast is not included in the room rate. Despite that, the price was reasonable. Parking is located on top of a hill, and you actually access the hotel via a pedestrian bridge connecting the parking lot to the sixth floor. The lobby is on the second floor, but the elevator button doesn't have a second-floor button. Push the L button to go to the correct floor when you're checking in and out. The restaurant and lounge are also on the second floor.

EzterM, Seaside, Oregon 07/06/2016

This motel is conveniently located to Newport. I ran the Newport half marathon the next morning and found that this motel really worked great for my needs. Some of the rooms have a view of the ocean, even if you don't have one, it's just a quick walk down the hill to beach(just across the road from the motel). My room was clean and staff were friendly. Since checkout time was noon, this worked well for grabbing a quick shower before checkout after the race!

I have to say for a somewhat dated hotel, it was clean, the staff were friendly, and the view from the beach/ocean side was exceptional. Just a short walk to the beach. I was disappointed that their was no continental breakfast, they have breakfast service for extra charge delivery to the room, but most places I've stayed have a free continental breakfast.

Great ocean view room & accommodations. Only stayed one night with the family. Enjoyed the restaurant just downstairs from the lobby, (so happy we didn't have to drive around after driving all the way there from central Oregon to eat!!!) Nice pool/hot tub, and just a short walk down to the beach! Only two bad things I could say about our experience was that there was construction going on the way to the beach (but looks like they are upgrading so probably for the better) and we had to hold down the knob for the toilet to flush in rm 600...other then those two minor things it was great.

User 31/05/2016

This Hotel feels like maybe a 3 1/2 Star Hotel. Sits near a beach with the down-side being far from the water. It wouldn't take much to consider this more of a Four Star Hotel. Enjoyed our time in Newport OR. I do think that this Hotel is Over-Priced. The Ocean Views from other Hotels along the Oregon Coast are in many cases far superior and at less cost.

Amazing hotel - right on the beach! Suggest selection facing the ocean and 5th floor and above - most younger kids are on the the third and fourth floors so they get pretty noisy. Salt water swimming pool is great but needs supervision - does not look like there is any way to limit drunk college kids from being obnoxious in there unfortunately.

We stayed here last year for Memorial Day weekend and my son loved it so much we stayed here again this year. The staff is always helpful and the rooms are nice. I love the view on the ocean side. The pool was also wonderful and I loved that they enforced the no smoking on the balcony. We had neighbors smoking on their balcony and one call to the front desk put a stop to it. I could tell some improvements to the staff and hotel had been made from last year and it really improved our experience.

I came with my toddler, I booked a king with an ocean view. Great view, it was so nice to wake up to the incredible view of the ocean. It's set back further than some hotels, which I did like. Just a short walk to the beach which was very convenient with a toddler! Most of the staff was kind, the desk looked a bit over worked, I called numerous times & just got an answering machine. I have to say that a young girl hostess in the restaurant completely blew me away. She was overly kind to myself & my son which is a big deal to me when traveling. She even waited on us during breakfast when the restaurant got slammed. Give that girl a raise promotion! Also the pool! Saltwater, huge room with really attractive wooden ceiling with giant beams. Large windows overlooking lush greenery with just a peekaboo of the ocean from one angle. My son & I really enjoyed swimming there.
