This was my first stay at the Shearwater Inn so I was not sure what to expect. Had a room on a higher floor which I would recommend. This hotel is right off the main street that runs through the city but did not hear traffic in the room from it. However there is quite a bit of noise that... More

Very nice hotel in a nice location. Lots of extras--breakfasts delivered to your room, free DVDs and games you can check out, bathrobes, reliable Wi-fi, useful fridge in room, everyone friendly and helpful. One small nit (common to most hotels): bedside lamps could be brighter. Would definitely stay there again.

The Shearwater Inn is a wonderful place to stay in Lincoln City. The rooms are really good with lots of amenities. Some of the rooms have an obstructed view of the ocean because of two buildings that are in front of the Inn.

The Shearwater Inn enjoys a great location just seconds from the beach in Lincoln City and within a stone's throw of a very popular restaurant (food was good / views were better). Facility is very nice as was the room (albeit the layout was a bit odd). The complimentary wine hour was a nice touch. My one qualm is about... More

The Shearwater Inn has been our get away from it all for several years, The staff are awesome. The rooms have views of the ocean and more importantly are within earshot of the rolling waves. We stayed in the room with the smaller Jacuzzi in the tub--perfect after a long walk on the beach. We will continue to chose this... More

Staff was great, we went to the Lincoln City Kite Festival and could walk to the beach from the hotel. Love the free continental breakfast..they deliver it right to your room. Room was very clean, quiet. View of beach was great and is very close to a favorite eatery "Kyllos".

Wish all of the hotels we stayed at along the coast were as nice. We had a family suite which has 2 beds and two baths. The walk to the beach was short and easy. What we liked was that they bring your breakfast to your room at the time you indicate on your menu card.
