The Oregon Coast

Hotels in The Oregon Coast

Whether they're set high upon a rocky cliff or directly on the sand, hotels on the Oregon Coast offer guests unparalleled access to the Pacific Ocean.

The Stephanie Inn Hotel, one of the best hotels on the Oregon Coast, rests just steps from Cannon Beach overlooking Haystack Rock, one of the area's most iconic natural landmarks. Here, guests can take in the ocean air from private balconies and warm up with individual fireplaces. Plus, it provides all the fixings for beach bonfires. Oregon Coast hotels primed for romantic getaways include the Arch Cape Inn & Retreat. Nestled between the Cascade Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, the inn features several suites with extras made for two--there's an alcove soaking tub in its "Tower Room," and its "Tuscan Spa" suite includes a shareable sauna and rain shower.

Travelers looking for hotels on the Oregon Coast with more modern amenities can check out The Whale Cove Inn in Depoe Bay. The cliffside inn, opened in 2007, features a minimalist design of stone, steel, cable and glass, and it's luxury suites measure up to 1,000-square-feet a piece. Its ocean-facing rooms offer views not only of the water but also of whale pods, bald eagles and more. In Astoria, the Cannery Pier Hotel overlooks the Columbia River and offers panoramic views courtesy of the floor-to-ceiling windows in its guest suites. Many rooms feature gas fireplaces and private decks, and there's a Finnish sauna on site for added relaxation.

On a bluff overlooking the rugged Pacific coastline, the 2007-opened inn is made of stone, steel, cable, and glass. Its seven 1,000-square-foot-suites have white wood-beam ceilings and understated accents such as cream-colored sofas and mahogany tables.

Just 400 feet from the sand, the 35-room Inn at Cape Kiwanda is the perfect base for a weekend at the shore. Suites are cozy—gas fireplaces; down comforters—and offer amazing views of the surf crashing into Haystack Rock, a 327-foot-tall basalt monolith jutting out of the bay.

Glamorous details abound: the Tower Room has a panoramic view and alcove soaking tub, and the Tuscan Spa has a sauna and rain shower for two.

Built in 1941, these 12 attached cottages are an easy walk to the beach, and the owners will provide a “clam gun” for scooping up clams from the sand.

Situated in Willamette Valley wine country, the LEED Gold–certified Allison Inn & Spa is surrounded by colorful gardens, sprawling lawns, and seven acres of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris grapevines.

On the northern end of Oregon's untamed coastline is Cannon Beach, a seaside town where Mother Nature has left her fingerprint in the form of Haystack Rock, a 235-foot basalt monolith rising from the shore.

Enjoy great bay views from a private deck, and bright, nautically themed rooms.

The former beach house was turned into an inn by Bruce Bessey. The three handsome suites, with mod furnishings, are perfect for curling up in when the rain lashes the wild surf. In fair weather, guests mingle on the oceanfront deck to watch gray whales or gaze at the stars.

The beautifully converted cannery right on a pier in Astoria has luxurious, glass-fronted rooms with gas fireplaces (and in some cases claw-foot tubs). Private decks have stunning views of boats trolling the Columbia River.
