Parking was an issue. Had to park on street. Room was okay. Looked nice online than it was and for the money it would have been worth another 20$ a night for far superior room. Carpet and headboards of bed were sticky so there’s that to think about
The staff was the bes! Everyone was so nice and helpful. Pretty much your basic hotel room. Comforter was very dated and not cozy at all but the pillows were nice and sheets smelled great. Salt water pool and spa so that was pretty cool. Partial ocean view too.
No fan in the bathroom.
Close to the beach, ocean view from the window
The motel is old, not so clean, the pool located out the facility
Pet friendly was amazing! Thank you !
We enjoyed the pool, and the hotel is a short walk to beach access.
Our room was very hot and smelled awful when we arrived. We left the window open the whole time and the smell became tolerable. The continental breakfast doesn't start until 8. We paid for ocean view and had an OK view over a neighboring roof and through power lines and a power pole.
Great experience, especially for the price
I loved the ocean view from my room. The staff was friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The indoor pool was much nicer than I anticipated - very clean, with a nice hot tub and sauna. Because weather at the coast can be unpredictable, it was nice to have an indoor pool as back-up entertainment for me and my young child. I was also pleasantly surprised by the "continental breakfast." We had cereal, bagels, waffles, oatmeal, fruit, and more available to us. I'm not really looking for luxury in a hotel but, rather, clean, safe, well-located at a reasonable price and The Waves definitely delivered.
Though you can see the ocean right out your window, beach access is rather far away. I didn't realize that going in, so it was a mild disappointment. But this was minor.
We came and stayed for 2 nights. Room was very clean. It was designated non-smoking. Shower had plenty of hot water (I have not always seen this to be true in economy hotels). Rooms were quiet (or maybe we were lucky and had quiet neighbors). Towels were of good quality. Although they used those really tiny bars of soap, housekeeping left a pile of them. The mattresses and pillows were average but fine. Although we did not need it, I was happy to see a clearly marked, easily accessible coin-operated guest laundry. Did I mention it was very clean? The hotel was an easy, several block walk into the historic district of Nye Beach. Breakfast was very adequate - a selection of breads with butter and jam, freezer waffles, hard-cooked eggs, cold cereals, fruit juice. The fruit bowl had lots of bananas. It was nothing fancy, but was completely adequate. Room also had dish tv and a DVD player. There was an eclectic selection of movies for rent in office.
There was no direct beach access, which was disappointing. The one small window did not prop open very well, and that kept the room warmer than it needed to be (daytime temperatures were very warm). There are no balconies. No fan to help at window. The building we were in did not have an elevator and the climb to the 3rd floor was inconvenient (my knees are not good), although we liked our 3rd floor room. If we stay there again, I will remember to ask for the building with an elevator. My family did not mind not having the elevator. I hated that several guests came to breakfast in pajamas (really??!) - but that's not the hotel's fault! Decor was dated, but that would not prevent me from staying there again! There was a small alarm clock, that was not plugged in, but we had our cell phones, which we used for alarm clocks.
The pool was nice
It wasn't clean the floor was dirty and there where ain't in the bathroom and near the window
not much to rave about
facility not well maintained; faded, unfinished paint not very clean rooms have musty smell old carpets, old bedding, old drapery sheets did not fit bed even after request made that they do fit not much effort being made, obviously
A hidden gem in Newport
The ocean view is breathtaking. Down town Ney beach is wonderful. Fun for every age, from cafe to coffee, and dinner to drinks. This has it all.
Have to walk or drive 1/4 mile to acsess beach. But the view from our room was worth the walk.
Was able to hear the ocean at night
I'm not a picky person, but maid service should be able to vacuum around the bed and walls had not been done in sometime. Gap under door was large enough to let light in and shower was extra small with out proper shower curtain. Front desk person was not happy that we arrived after 10:00pm. Sorry our jobs do not allow us to leave early in day. But my next stay in Newport will be with a motel that wants me there.
Located in Newport, The Waves Hotel is by the ocean, a 1-minute drive from Nye Beach and 5 minutes from South Beach State Park. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
