The three-pearl Coho Oceanfront Lodge is a low-key, 65-room resort overlooking the beach. Features include ocean-facing fire pits surrounded by Adirondack chairs, weekly wine tastings, movie rentals, cookies in the lobby, and in-room massages. There are also a breakfast cafe, hot tub, sauna, gym, and an indoor pool that’s for adults only at night. Most units offer oceanfront balconies, and some have kitchenettes, fireplaces, and/or bunk beds for kids. Although the property looks out over the beach, it's perched on a cliff and beach access is one block away. The Beachfront Manor Hotel is right on the sand, but it doesn’t have as many amenities.
Mid-range beachfront hotel with extras for families, couples, and pet owners
The three-story Coho Oceanfront Lodge looks a bit like an early-1990s apartment building, with simple exteriors with tan siding. The lobby is considerably more contemporary, with a small seating area. A few modern tan-colored sofas, and wall-mounted wine bottles add a slight Tuscan vibe to the space. The front desk features a neon-lit backdrop with wave designs. The lobby lounge offers wine, beer, and snacks for sale, along with free coffee and cookies. Wine tastings are offered once a week. Special packages with kites, beach toys, dog beds, firewood, s’more kits and/or romantic perks are also available.
Other common areas include a patio in the parking lot with comfy chairs and a sofa. The best views -- and opportunities to whale watch -- can be found at the rear of the property. Fire pits and Adirondack chairs are tucked into the sand and a patio area offers comfy furniture that overlooks the Pacific Ocean.
The hotel sits on a grassy oceanfront grassy ridge off Highway 101 in a residential area, with beach access one block away. There are plenty of shops, cafes, art galleries, and eateries within walking distance. The Little Antique Mall and Connie Hansen Garden Conservancy are 20 minutes away on foot. It’s a five-minute drive to the Regatta Park and Devil’s Lake, where there are water sports activities. The hotel also runs a shuttle on select days to Chinook Winds Casino, a five-minute drive away. The Tanger Outlets, with around 65 factory outlet stores, is a five-minute drive. Mo’s restaurant -- a well-known chowder spot -- and the historic Taft District are both 10 minutes away. The Yaquina Head lighthouse is 45 minutes by car in Newport. Up north are hiking opportunities at the Cascade Head Trail, a 30-minute drive. Portland is two hours away and Salem is around an hour and a half away by car.
Studios and suites with ocean views, many with fireplaces and kitchenettes
Rooms have stylish earth-tone furnishings and red decor, and have either full or partial ocean views. All come with flat-screen TVs, DVD players, iPod docks, kettles, French presses, kitchenettes with wet bars and stoves or microwaves, and mini-fridges. All rooms have either air-conditioning (not usually needed in Lincoln City) or fans. Some also have irons/ironing boards and bathrobes. Small dogs are allowed in some rooms, for a fee. Modern brown tiled bathrooms have shower/tub combos and hairdryers.
Two-bedroom Kids Suites have bunk beds and Wii or PS3 consoles. Oceanfront Studios are the simplest option and Deluxe Studios offer sofa beds in sitting areas, as do the one-bedroom Family Suites. The adult-only Flora Studio comes with binoculars, and some have fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. Sunset Suites also have fireplaces along with whirlpool tubs and separate walk-showers. Oceanfront Studios, Deluxe Studios, Kids Suites, and ADA-compliant rooms don’t have balconies.
Breakfast cafe and a recreation center with an indoor pool, a hot tub, a sauna, and a gym
The Coho Oceanfront Lodge features a heated indoor pool with a wheelchair lift and adult-only nighttime hours. It's housed in a recreation center along with a hot tub, a sauna, and a modernly equipped gym with free weights, cardio machines, and a flat-screen TV. The Coho Cafe serves a free continental breakfast with standard baked goods and self-serve waffle makers, but lunch and dinner aren’t provided. Although there's no business center, there is a guest computer in the lobby along with free (albeit sometimes slow) Wi-Fi, and there's a meeting space for rent that can fit up to 30 people. Parking is free.
