My husband and I have tried renting a beach house and staying at other motels in Lincoln City by we keep coming back to Shear Water Inn. It has a familiar homey feeling, the customer service is top notch. I want to be pampered and the breakfast delivery and daily newspaper at your door is just the ticket. I very...

The Shearwater is nicely located (especially for the kite fest) with large suites and, most importantly, it's quiet. The room lay-out is well thought out. My only down side was the minuscule bathroom.

The staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable and equipped with gas fireplace, spa tub and ocean view balconies. Breakfast is included and delivered to the room at the time of your choice. There is a wine tasting/social hour from 5:30 to 6:30 each evening. The Shearwater is conveniently located close to good dining and has a great beach...

This I'd by far our favorite Lincoln City hotel! It is right on the beach, has great rooms that include wonderful views of the beach. Tip: the higher the view the better the view! Get at least a third floor room unless you are on an extreme budget in which case get the second floor partial ocean view king room...

The Shearwater Inn is our favorite place to stay in Lincoln City. We love the ocean views from every room, the fireplace, breakfast delivered, and the wine in the evenings. We have always loved the bed and bedding as well, but this trip we were disappointed in the bed. It was lumpy and the pillows were not as soft as...

We loved our stay here and it was wonderful from beginning to end. We were staying for our 5 year anniversary and there was a nice note with a welcome basket waiting for us in our room. We had one of the grand suites on the top floor which was both amazing and a nice view of the ocean. The...

Lovely room, comfortable bed, wine served in the evening, and delightful breakfast which we enjoyed on our balcony overlooking the great Pacific. All members of the staff were very helpful and efficient.

This was our third stay at the Shearwater and this time we stayed in the Parlor Suite which is just like a cozy one-bedroom condo complete with a full kitchen. It is an end unit so plenty of natural light fills the rooms and a pretty darn good view of the ocean. And the bed, oh my gosh the bed!...
