Our hosts were most friendly & helpful. The hotel has a parking lot. This is a literature themed hotel thus without T.V.s. Sign up for their gourmet dinner. They have a pleasant gift shop. Each room is cleverly decorated for an author. The library has two levels, access to hot beverages, board games, comfy chairs, portraits of authors, & ocean...

First, if you are a heavy TV watcher or someone who is addicted to a Smart Phone, I'm guessing you will not be very happy here. On the other hand, if your idea of a good time is to curl up with a book and maybe a cat on your lap, this is the hotel for you. If your intentions...

My first stay at Sylvia was a pleasant one. I was in the Emily Dickinson room and upon arrival, had a lovely guest waiting for me (the house cat). :) The experience to stay at Sylvia is really just that. A fun experience. If you go into it no expecting high end, B&B, with a lot of 'amenities' then you...

Located right on Nye Beach in Newport. Great place to relax and unwind from the ever-constant electronic devices. No phone, radios, TV's or wifi on the property and guests are encouraged to use their cellphones outside when making calls. Wonderful upstairs library overlooking the beach. Rooms range from quite small to large suites. You get what you pay for. There...

This time we splurged on the Agatha Christie room. Spacious corner room with fireplace and private deck and ocean view. Breakfast is consistently good...many pastry items repeat, because they're good, but the hot dishes vary. Oven coated pepper bacon is most excellent. Great place to read, and leave electronics behind. Dinners are tasty...but family style in that you have several...

We chose the quirky beach hotel because of it's literary theme and it's coastal location. We were three ladies averaging about 45 years old and we were the youngest guests. One of us is weakened by cancer, so we chose the Stienbeck room on the first floor. It had twin beads with squeaky springs and the mattresses were so soft,...

My husband and I have been to the Sylvia Beach Hotel in Newport Oregon nearly a dozen times. We love the location --right on the cliff over looking the ocean -- and the rooms are decorated in the themes of various authors. It is REALLY quiet. No TV's, no telephones, and no internet. Don't expect first class; it's not. But...

We ate dinner there. Must have reservations. It's a one time seating at 7:00. There were 15 people dining at two tables. It was excellent food, and such fun to actually get to meet other travelers and learn a bit about them. After dessert we went upstairs and had spice hot wine and more conversation. How often do you get...

Don't come if you feel the need to stay connected. A wonderful place that has no telephones, radios, TV or wifi. Cell phones are discouraged, and you may be asked to step outside if you are using one. On the other hand, the well stocked library has windows and a porch overhanging Nye Beach, fresh brewed coffee in the morning...

This quaint hotel at the water's edge is a theme-based Bed and Breakfast on steroids. All of the rooms are named for authors and decorated in accord with either the author's life and times or a major work of theirs. For instance, the Ken Kesey room echoes the hospital ward of "One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest" with Jelly Belly's...
