Whether you plan to pack up the car and spend months
winding down the coast, or have a specific destination
in mind, the Oregon coast is one of the most idyllic places to take a vacation,
particularly for anyone who loves the ocean. Oregon coast
lodging can fit just about every kind of plan. By far,
the most prevalent type of Oregon coast hotels are bed
and breakfasts, but there are still plenty of hotels,
campsites, and even Oregon coast vacation rentals found
up and down the entire coast.
Although the city of Astoria is small, it still has a number of nice places to stay. Clementine's Bed and Breakfast is one of the most luxurious, and can be found right in town across from the Flavel House Museum. Clementine's was built in 1888 and has just 8 units, so if you want to stay here be sure to make reservations in advance. The Hotel Elliott is also an Astoria favorite, with 32 units and plenty of downtown Astoria character. This historic hotel is decorated with antique furniture and has a vintage feel.
The seaside town of Cannon Beach is an appealing place for local conferences, and as such there are a few places in town to have one. If you simply want a hotel room, try the Arch Cape House, which despite its geographical location is decorated completely with France in mind. This house has just 8 units. The Ocean Lodge is another nice choice. This smallish lodge features 45 units decorated with a woodsy, cabin-feel. Many of these rooms have great views of the ocean and the hotel is located conveniently close to attractions in Cannon Beach such as the downtown theater and the ocean itself.
Seaside is a great town for tourism along the Oregon coast, and it here that travelers will find many of the best Oregon coast hotels for tourists. The Inn of the Four Winds is one such place; a small, 14-unit hotel with beach access. The hotel is walking distance from downtown restaurants and offers massage services. The Gilbert Inn is another excellent choice in Seaside, and is only one block away from the beach and one block away from downtown Seaside. This inn functions more like a bed and breakfast, with breakfast included in the overnight rates. The house was first built in 1892, and has maintained much of its 19th century charm.
After checking out the Oregon
Aquarium, you might need a hotel in Newport. Oregon
coast hotels in Newport offer a nice range of excellence
and budget pricing. Starfish Point is one of the more
expensive places to stay around town, but it also has
one of the prettiest settings. These six units are surrounded
by fir trees, and when you emerge from the trees you can
see the ocean. For a more competitive price, try the Tyee
Lodge on the south end of Newport. The overnight rate
includes breakfast, and although the room furnishings
are basic this is a great hotel for families and couples.
There are also plenty of standard Oregon coast hotels found near the beach. Beach hotels in Oregon on the coast are quite common, and offer moderately sized rooms. These hotels are best for guests who only want to stay in one location for a night or two, and suit the needs of many travelers making their way up or down the coastline.
