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...

Being the whimsical chick I am, I decided the Dr. Seuss room was the way to go. The question was, would the man like it too? Yep, he was in! The bed wasn't very big for the two of us but that wasn't the point. It was fun! We read One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, learned more...

I've stayed here several time and each time is a new, unique and wonderful experience. If you have to have tv and wi-fi go somewhere else. I love that this place insists on leaving technology behind and forces you to interact with living, breathing humans. The 'Tables of Content' restaurant is fantastic. Meals are served at tables seating 4 to...

Love this place. Each room is totally different. Themed place with writers rooms. No wi-fi,phone, tv or anything electronic. The best place for a total get away. The ocean is right outside your window and lulls you to sleep. Great service and you get the chance to meet people from all over the country and beyond. The breakfasts are over...

My husband, 7-year old son and I spent three nights at this hotel. We booked it because a relative was already staying there but will come back just for the hotel. Each room is dedicated to a writer and decor themed accordingly. Without wi-if or televisions, guests play board games or do puzzles in the well stocked game/coffee room or...
