Fodor's Expert Review Norblad Hotel & Hostel

443 14th St., Astoria, Oregon, 97103, USA

Formerly a boardinghouse until its recent renovation, the offbeat Norblad occupies a stately two-story 1920s building a few steps from Fort George Brewery. The hotel has a mix of small, European-style rooms with shared baths down the hall, one spacious suite with a private bath, and a pair of dorm-style hostel rooms, one for women and one for men. The friendly and helpful owners are constantly making upgrades, and the rates are as low as you'll find on the Oregon Coast, making this quite a deal if you're okay with no-frills accommodations.
