Family-owned since 1979, The Whaler Motel was founded as a pet- and family-friendly getaway in Newport. Steps from the beach and with views to write home about, over the next four decades The Whaler became a destination for generations of families and travelers. When the original owners were ready to sell the Whaler, they specifically chose Hallmark to continue their legacy of hospitality.


With forty years of memories—and wonderful relationships with their employees and guests—The Clarks chose another family- and Oregon-owned business to be the new stewards of The Whaler, Hallmark Resorts. After a short closure and complete renovation in 2023, The Whaler reopened as a new boutique destination, with all the charm and history of the original.


The Whaler is still growing! With the addition of 26 boutique rooms and three vacation rental homes, the experience will continue to transform over the next few months. With progress comes some dust and a bit of noise, but we think you’ll love what’s to come.
