Our Valued Guests - COVID-19 Information

At Shearwater Inn some things are back to normal and others are still a little different due to the ongoing pandemic and current labor shortage.  We will continue to update policies as we receive information from government officials and as staffing changes.  To ensure everyone’s safety, please do not visit the hotel if you have been sick within the last 14 days, had any COVID-19 symptoms, or have been exposed to COVID-19.  

We are doing extra cleaning and sanitation, shields are installed at the front desk, and contactless check-in and check-out are still available.  Housekeeping stayover service will be limited and by request.  We are happy to deliver fresh towels and supplies and remove garbage daily if requested.  We are not currently offering the wine social.  We will get back to offering it soon.  Due to government order masks are required at indoor public areas of the hotel.

Arrival & Departure

Check-in begins at 4 p.m. and Check-out is 11 a.m. The hotel office closes at 10 p.m. If you are going to arrive after 10 p.m. please call us at 541-994-4121 to make arrangements.


To reserve a hotel room guests must be 18 years old. All reservations require a credit card to guarantee. During some holiday time periods, an advance deposit of one night may be required.


We require 72 hours’ notice to cancel. If the cancellation is made with less than 72 hours’ notice we will charge for the first night of the stay.


We allow 1 dog per room 45 pounds or less. The dog is $15 per night. The dog may not be left uncrated in the room. We have crates to borrow if needed. We only allow dogs; no other pets are permitted in the rooms. Dogs are allowed on Oregon beaches off-leash as long as they are under voice command.


All our rooms and decks are non-smoking, and dogs are only allowed in dog-friendly rooms. Guests will be charged a $200 fee if they smoke in a room.


Guests may have one car per room.  Grand Suite guests may have two cars.  Our parking lot can be a bit challenging for larger vehicles due to low clearance, and a steep driveway.  

Hot Tub

The hot tub is open from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm. Towels are provided in the hot tub area.

Beach Fires

Fires are permitted on the beach. All fires must abide by the Oregon Coast state parks guidelines – Oregon Shore State Recreation Area. During very dry periods fires may be banned.


In the event of a tsunami, sirens will sound. If you hear the sirens follow the posted tsunami evacuation signs to higher ground. There is a weekly tsunami warning system test on Wednesday. During that time the siren will only go for 20 seconds.
