I will be traveling up the Oregon Coast from Brookings to perhaps as far north as Astoria. I would appreciate the names and contact information for mid-price range motels, B&Bs &/or resorts that RVM residents have found to be their favorites. Many thanks!
|Best Western Beachfront Inn
The Best Western Beachfront Inn in Brookings is reasonable, adequate
but not fancy, and has a great location right on the beach. Stairs only,
no elevator. 16008 Boat Basin Rd, Brookings, OR 97415
|Cannery Pier Hotel
|In Astoria, we love the location of the Cannery Pier Hotel. It is built on pilings right out in the Columbia River. Oceangoing ships pass by so close to your room that you feel like you can reach out and touch them. It is not inexpensive, and beware of foggy weather. When the fog rolls in, you can't see anything. A side note: the small Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria is great for conveying an up-close and personal sense of how dangerous it is to navigate the ferocious Columbia River.||Pat Berglund||7/23/2017|
Smith River, California
|The Casa Rubio is just a smidgen south of Brookings, but it's in Smith River, California, not Oregon. It's a unique place with a small group of idiosyncratic rooms--each one different in shape, size and style--and it's not too expensive. The ocean view is a bit far away but there's an easy path to walk down to the beach. 17285 Crissey Ln, Smith River, CA 95567 Phone: (707) 487-4313||Pat Berglund||7/23/2017|
|Many people here love the Stephanie Inn in Cannon Beach, but it's very pricey.||Pat Berglund||7/23/2017|
|Sandes of Time Bed & Breakfast
|Are you looking for a place to stay near Portland?
Then Sandes of Time Bed & Breakfast should be on your short list.
About 10 years ago, Al and Terry Sande bought a time-worn century old
home on an overgrown three acre rocky knoll near the Willamette River.
During the next five years they fully restored it, even enhancing the
design to create four guest rooms with private baths, and a theater in
the previously unfinished basement. Rock crushers reshaped the hill top
to provide a circular drive with guest parking. 300 truckloads of topsoil
were molded into manicured lawns and flower beds. Terry furnished all
the rooms with period furniture, paint and wall paper, even making the
curtains herself. The result, an obvious labor of love, is a delight
When we arrived for our stay, Al greeted us with a tour of the house
before showing us to our spacious and very comfortable room. The next
morning, he served us and the other guests a delicious breakfast that
Terry was preparing in the kitchen adjacent to our dining room.
Several times during our stay we had opportunities to chat with Al and
Terry, hearing about the history of the house and their experiences preparing
it for its B&B mission.
By the time we checked out, we had fully achieved the promise of the
sign by the front door - “Enter as strangers, leave as friends”.
For further information, including more about the house’s history and
photos of the house and rooms, check out Terry’s web site at
