Sail Inn, Bayfront, Fishing Boats and Harbor Views
We offer one bedroom, two story apartments overlooking the quaint fishing boat harbor of Yaquina Bay in Newport, Oregon. A fully equipped kitchen, two gas fireplaces (one in the living room, one in the bedroom), large (15' x 20') balcony and a jetted tub in the bathroom! Go up a spiral stairway to the upper floor bedroom! Magnificent views of the harbor seem to be constantly changing from the large picture windows in the living room! Restaurants, bars, fishing and sailing trips and more are available within easy walk (or let us book one for you!). Walk your dog on the quarter mile long boardwalk just across from your apartment! Tour the headquarters of the famous Rouge brewery here on the Bay! We are directly across the bay from the new NOAA West coast headquarters! Other local attractions include the Oregon Coast Aquarium, Hatfield Marine Science Center, Ripley's Believe It Or Not, Undersea Gardens, majestic and unpopulated ocean beaches, lighthouses, ocean and bay cruises, an oyster farm, scenic coastal overlooks and more! Crabbing, clamming and fishing are favorite local pastimes. Come watch the whale migration this winter! Kite and windsurfing are possible and lessons are available! There is a local Indian gaming casino nearby (Lincoln City) with gambling, restaurants, shows and more. There are several events throughout the year in and around Newport that should not be missed! Check with our local Chamber of Commerce website. People tend to book early for the Seafood and Wine Festival, in February. We have the best seats in Newport for the 4th of July fireworks on the Bay from your apartment balcony! Tuna, salmon, halibut, crab, rock cod, clams and more are some of the varied fish and shellfish you will find off shore and in our bays and rivers! It would be hard to see it all in a just a few days!

Order food from our Sail Inn Cafe where you can dine on the large indoor/outdoor deck while watching the people walk by and viewing the fishing boats. The restaurant's open from 11AM to 7 PM and we can deliver to your room. Some have asked if you can hear anything from the restaurant in the apartments upstairs.The answer is absolutely not - in fact most people love the convenience of the great food and drink we offer and no one has ever mentioned hearing anything below (except the nearby sea lions which they love!)
Eat and surf the net with our WiFi connection at the restaurant, or in your apartment. You'll find the freshest seafood, burgers, Thai food and a full bar for lunch and dinner seven days a week (open noon on Sunday). The restaurant is wheelchair accessible and the outside deck is pet friendly.
The Sail Inn is often described in our guest book as 'the perfect romantic getaway!'
Like they say, 'It's better by the Bay!' Hope to see you here!
Many of the attractions of Newport are either a short walk or drive away. With enough seafood bistros, pubs, cafes, and family restaurants to keep you well-fed for a month, you may never want to leave Newport. There are plenty of antique shops, galleries, and arcades to explore, so rainy days won't be any problem at all. When the sun shines, you can head to South Beach State Park for a guided kayak tour, surf at Agate Beach, play a round of golf, dig for razor clams, or try your hand at deep-sea fishing. Newport has something special to offer every member of your family!TripAdvisor property ID 3764796...Read more

When we walked in we were greeted with the smell of dirty cleaning water . . . water that got far too dirty to keep cleaning with. Because of that we avoided surfaces until we cleaned them.
I give the VIEW 5 stars, however, the main window you see the view through is "blown", which means you can't really see through it. You see cloudiness and moisture between the panes of the window. You can walk out onto the deck and see the view. Also, the fishing boats head out around 4:00 to 4:30 AM and they have lights that are off the charts bright. Some black out curtains facing the boats would be good. There are none.
I give it 5 stars for location. Though it is on a somewhat busy street it was still pretty quiet in the day time.. At night time it was VERY quiet. The air was lovely and I slept well on the main floor futon. Futon had a very ugly queen sheet on it and nothing more. Slept downstairs so that I didn't have to maneuver the metal spiral stair case in the middle of the night to get to the bathroom. And because the futon was more comfortable than the bed, so that gives you an idea of the poor comfort level of the bed.
Glad I brought my own linens and down comforter and pillow, as I didn't see any for the futon. Upstairs bed was hard as a rock and covered in a very ugly hotel bedspread. Why do they do that?
Kitchenette is pleasant enough. No spoons, however. ?? So don't expect to eat clam chowder or breakfast cereal or oatmeal, etc. Only forks and knives.
Water coming out of the pipes smells funky. Old, old pipes, I'm guessing. Didn't want to bathe in it. Towels in bathroom were colored and striped and had a coarse feel to them and just didn't feel clean to me. No personal bath soap bars. One large bar of soap used by all visitors for who knows how long. Yuk. Didn't touch that.
No parking near the entrance to the west side apartment. Had to park on the street. Didn't love that.
Wifi was great. Didn't use the TV/VCR. They had quite a few movies there that were pretty good if you are inclined to stay in and watch a movie.
There is a "coffee shop" cafe two doors down that has good breakfast.
Though it is pet friendly, you have to climb up and down stairs in the night, if your pet needs to go out.
It wasn't the worst place I've stayed at, and I actually did enjoy it, in spite of all the downsides, I just am not happy that I paid $164 for something that should have been in the range of $90-$110. Also, I was told they would only charge me for one pet (both are tiny), but they charged me for both.
If the bed was pillowtop awesome. Nice looking coverings, clear window, nice white towels, individual soaps and complementary shampoo's, etc . . . a water filter on sinks and shower . . . then I'd stay there again. Otherwise . . . nope.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sail Inn! The rooms were clean, we loved the winding staircase, the kitchen was well stocked and the location was perfect.
That said, this may not be the place for everyone. If you want a quiet, secluded cabin, this is not for you. It is right across from the docks, and you have all the ambiance of a port. But we loved that. It is walking distance to everything in port district, which includes restaurants, galleries and shops. We could walk across the street and get fresh tuna, crab or snapper. It was a short drive to crabbing, which is what we came to do, and the staff was very helpful in locating good crabbing spots for us.
There is convenient parking right on site, it has a Jacuzzi bath tub, and a deck where you can watch all the activity on the docks. And you are serenaded by sea lions every night!
Ms. Chin is a gracious hostess, and while we did not take advantage of the restaurant downstairs (we cooked the crab we caught during the day!) we could tell by the satisfied looks on patron's faces that it was a good place to eat.

We stayed here in October (early) and loved the location of this place. Nestled nicely on the bay front, despite the parking usually being a hassle in this part of town - the owner ensures a parking spot available for people staying at the Inn.
It was clean, tidy, with unique character and very homey feeling. David was easy to work with on booking, and the food down below at the Cafe was great!
We will be back! Thank you!

This was a great stay next to all the shops and restaurants on the Boardwalk. Compared to hotels in the area, this was a great bargain and much more comfortable - we were able to make a reservation on short notice; we did have some confusion on dates but I am not sure if that was my issue or theirs, and the owners accomodated the misunderstanding with no problem.
I would not call it luxurious - much more like staying in a good friend's well thought out beach house, with everything we needed for a few days of relaxation: good bed, selection of books and movies, full kitchen, great view, easy to walk to many great spots nearby.

My daughter and I stayed a week in this rental and loved it. The condo is situated in the heart of the historic district in Newport, or. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, deep sea fishing, attractions and sea lions. The view of the harbor from the deck is awesome. Ocean beach access is just a short drive down the road. I loved being in the middle of all the action.
The accommodations were very comfortable with a full size refrigerator to freeze all the fish caught on the charter fishing trip. Comfortable beds and everything you'd need for an extended stay.
Reservations were easy to set up and Mr.Hallinger is very easy to work with. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to the coast.
“A wonderful relaxing week at the coast with perfect accomodation”

We stayed here for an entire week and had a wonderful time. The apartment is cozy and had everything we needed. We could walk on the bayfront every day. Woke up to the sealions barking almost every morning which was wonderful. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook in. Truly a "home away from home." We will be back.

I frequently visit Newport with my mother (86 yrs old) but we have always stayed in the Nye Beach area. This time we opted for something different and rented one of the Sail Inn's apartments overlooking the harbor on Newport's Bayfront. Wow! What a great apartment and perfect location! The first day we walked across the street to the boat selling fresh crab and halibut and bought three live crabs to cook in our nice kitchen. We cooked them up and ate them (with lots of good beer) on our deck that has the best view in town. The beautiful bayfront boardwalk in front of the Sail Inn is great for strolling, dog walking, sight seeing, shopping, restaurants. You can watch the fishing boats coming and going all day and night from the apartment living room. The harbor is very picturesque, but full of real working boats and people--lots of genuine local character yet still very friendly to visitors. The restaurant downstairs is fabulous--best clam chowder on the coast--and the hardworking Hallinger family makes you feel very welcome and comfortable. They will do anything to make your stay a truly great experience. There is a wonderful local coffeehouse next door for early morning espresso on their deck or inside their cozy coffehouse. Definitely our best trip ever to Newport. My mom really enjoyed it so much more than any of our stays on the beach side--there was just more to do and see and more of a real local flavor.
