The Oregon Coast includes the nearly 400 miles of coastline along the Pacific Ocean, featuring rugged cliffs and sandy beaches. The cities that dot the coast are quaint and charming, popular with both vacationing couples and families. Naturally, there are many adorable bed and breakfasts and inns throughout. After visiting the top hotels, we compared how they stacked up against the competition. Take a look at the best bed and breakfast hotels in the Oregon Coast and get inspired!
The charming, upper-middle-range Cannon Beach Hotel is located on Hemlock Street, the quaint beach town's main thoroughfare. All 10 rooms are elegant, with Edwardian-style decor, and some have four-poster beds, fireplaces, and clawfoot tubs. Although amenities are limited at this tiny boutique property, there's an excellent on-site cafe with a breakfast service (only for hotel guests) and all guests get free access to nearby Cannon Beach Fitness, open 24-hours daily.
The Ocean Lodge is a four-pearl hotel that aims to be a home-away-from-home for its guests on the south end of Cannon Beach. 45 rooms and suites include working fireplaces, kitchenettes, and some ocean views. With cookies and organic coffee in the lobby at all hours, a library full of books for all ages, free DVDs to borrow, and a free continental breakfast, the hotel is a popular choice for families (and their pets) who choose it as their home base on the Oregon Coast again and again. Note that there is no on-site restaurant and past guests have complained about noise from little ones.
The 40-room Inn at Cannon Beach is a charming mid-range choice for those who don't mind being driving distance from the heart of the beach town. All rooms have microwaves, Keurig coffeemakers, gas fireplaces, and flat-screen TVs with DVD players, and some have whirlpool tubs. A buffet breakfast with continental items and waffles is included in the room rates at this pet-friendly property, and all guests get free access to the Canon Beach Fitness center and a free pass to Cannon Beach Yoga Arts.
The 36-room Looking Glass Inn is a mid-range property overlooking Siletz Bay in Lincoln City’s historic Taft District. The hotel delivers VIP treatment to pooches, with doggy welcome baskets, treats, and a lawn with a fire hydrant. A picnic area offers a barbecue grill and crab cooking station, which is a nice perk since there’s no on-site restaurant, although the lobby does have a breakfast bar. One- and Two-Bedroom Suites and Studios have flat-screen TVs, and many have kitchens, fireplaces, ocean views. However, the walls are thin and the property is not on the beach, so ocean-facing rooms also get a view of the parking lot.
A newer hotel in Seaside, the 48-room River Inn at Seaside on the Necanicum River is a family-friendly, pet-friendly, mid-range property located two blocks from the beach and one block from Broadway, Seaside's main drag. Freebies include a continental breakfast, bike rentals, a kids' playground, DVD rentals, Wi-Fi, and a heated indoor pool. Rooms are nothing special, and it's difficult to tell if they're meant to look retro or just need an update, with mustard-colored curtains and brown accents.
