The small coastal town of Seaside, Oregon, is littered with hotels of various sizes looking to profit from tourists. During the cold, wet seasons of the year, it is simple to find hotel vacancy without reservations, but visitors planning a trip to Seaside for any major summer holiday, like Independence Day, should reserve a room well in advance.
Hotels with an Ocean View and Restaurant
The Shilo Inn Suites Oceanfront Hotel and the Best Western Ocean View Resort allow guests to watch the annual beach volleyball tournaments, kite shows and sandcastle-building competitions from the comfort of their rooms. The best feature of the Shilo Inn is its location, directly on the promenade and a street with three blocks full of unique gift shops. The restaurant at the Shilo Inn offers “Continental-American” cuisine and seafood. Located four blocks away from the hustle and bustle of Broadway Street and its gift shops, the Best Western in Seaside also is located on the “prom.” It offers rooms with jetted tubs and an indoor pool to balance out the Pacific Ocean’s frigid waters. Salvatore’s Café & Pub at the Best Western serves seafood, authentic Italian food and American favorites such as chicken sandwiches and hamburgers. Children under 10 eat free when their families are guests of the hotel.
As traveling with pets gains in popularity, Seaside hotels accommodate guests' animal companions. The Sandy Cove Inn is a family-operated hotel that offers a limited amount of pet-friendly rooms. All the rooms and suites have kitchenettes, themed rooms with views of the ocean and a beach house feel. Located four blocks away from beach, the Beachside Inn also has a limited amount of pet-friendly rooms. Guest rooms and suites resemble accommodations found at a bed and breakfast, but with sea foam-green walls and nautical décor. Rooms at the Beachside Inn come with kitchenettes and DVD players.
Hotels with a Fireplace
Counter a cold, windy day with a room at the Inn at the Shore. This hotel offers panoramic views of the beach, a terrace and DVD player. All of the rooms have a gas fireplace, and some of the terraces lead directly onto the beach. Located on Seasides’s promenade, the Inn of the Four Winds is 60 steps from the beach. All of the guest rooms and suites have gas fireplaces in addition to balconies and ocean views. Also offered are shuttle services, complimentary cookies upon check-in and wet bars.
