Compared with other coastal destinations in the United States, the Oregon Coast offers a pretty good value, although during high season in July and August, rates can get fairly steep at some higher-end inns and resorts, especially along the northern stretch of the coastline. Still, you can typically find clean but basic motels and rustic inns, often with beachfront locations, that have nightly rates
well below $150, even in high season. Spring and fall rates often drop by 20% to 30%, and in winter—especially on weekdays—a hotel room that costs $250 in July might go for as little as $99. There are plenty of budget- and midpriced chains in larger towns, but for the most part, the lodging landscape is dominated by family-owned or independent motels and hotels, vacation rentals, and a smattering of distinctive B&Bs.
Properties in much of the north and central coast fill up fast in the summer, so book in advance. Many lodgings require a minimum two-night stay on a summer weekend.
