Inn at Spanish Head Resort Hotel
You will feel right at home in this condominium hotel, one of the most reputable hotels along the Oregon coast. Each room is individually decorated and provides beautiful oceanfront accommodations. Although it may feel like you are renting an apartment, you will still enjoy all the rewards of staying with a large hotelfine dining, valet parking, an exercise room and an outdoor heated pool. Moreover, most suites, studios and rooms feature balconies and kitchens. The five meeting rooms can accommodate 10-200 people.
I found this place on a top 10 romantic spots on Oregon coast. Since I'm guessing these are privately owned condo units, the units vary dramatically from room to room. The place is clean enough, but the room we're in reminds me of my grandparents run down lake house. Everything is dated. The sliding glass doors don't lock. The outside walls are desperately in need of a face lift or at least a little paint. Based on the price of where we just stayed a bit south of The Inn at Spanish Head, the room we stayed in should be priced @ about $ 49.00. If you are looking for a romantic evening, I would not recommend the room we stayed in. I was very disappointed.
I love the Spanish Head! I have stayed there at least 20 times in my life. We have tried going to other, cheaper places, but always end up back there. It is a little spendy, but compared to what you can find for cheaper(read my review on sailor jacks) it is worth every penny...plus they give out 50% off coupons for your next stay and have great midweek specials so it really isn't that spendy! The people are sooo nice, friendly, and always willing to help and will always look for ways to make your stay nicer. Its built right on the beach, with a great view, easy beach access, a nice pool, hot tub, exercies room, and a rec. room so theres plenty to do(and its close to resturants and the outlet mall). Everythign is clean and in working order this really is one of the best places to stay!
Our room was on the 9th floor and the minute we walked in the room it was breathtaking. I think that this floor may be the best as there was no waiting for the elevator with our bags. It was one floor up to the restaurant and an elevator ride down to the beach. We spent the whole weekend just at the hotel. It did seem a bit spendy but I don't think any other hotel has this type of accomadation. Oh, I would like a shrimp or crab louie in the hotel.
Here's the deal with the IASH... I will admit that it is decidedly hit-and-miss, but once you figure out how to work it - it's great. Some of the rooms are just plain funky. What I recommend is that you look at a couple of rooms BEFORE you decide on one that you want. It'll annoy the desk staff, but it's definitely worth it. Also, go for one of the studio rooms. They're actually little mini-condos that are decorated by their owners - and some of the owners have really excellent taste. Skip the rooms on the first floor, the sliding glass doors open onto a little promenade, so not much privacy there. Be sure to hit the restaurant for breakfast, but have dinner elsewhere or buy your own groceries in town and cook in-room. Room service and dinner are completely overpriced. Book Sun-Thurs if possible, because you can usually get a web special for 40-50% off, which brings the price more in-line with what it's worth. Happy hotelling!
She's looking a bit tired, and in need of some renovation, but the location and the staff are top notch. And then there is the awe-inspiring view of the water. The restaurant is good, and the beach is awesome. Our room was rather drab, though clean, and I was a little disappointed when I entered. But then the magic of the location just mesmerizes you. The bed was comfortable and the recliners next to the floor to ceiling windows just called to you, and you are carried away by the beauty and majesty of the ocean and its creatures, and all is well with the world.
We have stayed here several times and always try to stay in suite 633. It is absolutely beautiful, has a king size sleep number bed, the suite is very tastefully decorated. This suite has been completely remodelled and is awesome, I could live there. The restaurant is reasonably priced and food is very good. View is awesome. We are already booked for two more visits this year. Can't wait.
We had seen the Inn from HWY 101 South on several ocassions and were very excited about finally being able to stay there. Be careful what you wish for! The Inn is old and in badly need of repair. What I first noticed was the filth of the hallway carpets. They were not only in need of replacing but they also were not vacuumed daily or at all during our stay. Then, we entered what had been portrayed on the web as a beautiful studio. It wasn't. Again, it was older, the furnishings much to be desired, and the bathroom and closet so small (all one room) that we could not wheel our smallest suitcase inside. The bathroom floor has obviously had some mold damage and even though a new piece of flooring was laid on top, the mold could still be seen through the new floor. The screen door to our patio was ripped and non funtional. We calleed maintenance and asked them to fix it for us. 24 hours later, we had a new screen door but spent the first night without one. The coup de gras, however, was the black sludge that dripped from the ceiling of our patio into a collection trough on the patio floor. We noticed that all the patios had this device but we were the only patio with any black water collection. We inquired about the possiblity of mold especially after two days, a sore throat and allergy flair up. We were told they would see if they could move us. Overall, the experience was a dismal one. Our health may well be compromised, and I am so sorry we decided to try the Inn at Spanish Head. It may well have been a one of a kind experience 30 years ago, and it certainly still is. Not a one of a kind I want to repeat, however. You can buy a whole lot more for $200+ a night on the Oregon Coast!
