Two award-winning travel writers, and the publishers of the Pacific Coast Highway Travel website, recommend 145 hotels along the USA's Pacific Coast Highway. Ranging from budget through moderate to luxury choices, there are accommodation recommendations, with descriptions and contact details, for 145 of the most atmospheric, historic or just plain enjoyable hotels for every stop along the Pacific Coast of California, Oregon and Washington, from San Diego to Seattle.


Excerpt

ABERDEEN, WA

Moderate
A Harbor View Inn
www.aharborview.com
11 W 11th Street
360/533-7996
877/533-7996
Only four rooms, and all have private bathrooms and good views of Aberdeen's attractive harbor. The house was built in 1905, and the décor is mostly suitably historic but the facilities modern, including wifi and DVD players.


ARCATA, CA

Budget
Hotel Arcata
www.hotelarcata.com
708 9th Street
707/826-0217
800/344-1221
The Arcata has both Budget and Moderate room rates, from single rooms to two-room suites. It was built in 1915 when the railroad came to town, and later the arrival of route 101 boosted its popularity. It's only a simple hotel, nothing fancy as you'd expect from the cost, but it's central, friendly, and definitely the price is right.


ASTORIA, OR

Budget
Astoria Inn Bed and Breakfast
www.astoriainnbb.com
3391 Irving Avenue
503//325-8153
800/ 718-8153
This cozy Victorian was built in 1890 and has only four rooms, all of them under $100. For this you get treats like cookies and candy, a breakfast that might include Grand Marnier French toast (the owner likes to cook), and all rooms have Queen-sized beds and private bathrooms.

Crest Motel
www.astoriacrestmotel.com
5366 Leif Erickson Drive
503/425-3141
The Crest is a plain and simple motel, and even the best rooms come in at under $100. It looks out over the Columbia River and has a laundry, Jacuzzi, cable TV, and a complimentary breakfast. If you're on a budget it's hard to beat.


Moderate
Benjamin Young Inn
www.benjaminyounginn.com
3652 Duane Street
503/325-6172
800/201-1286
This characterful old inn is on the National Register of Historic Places and has just four large rooms which mix antique furnishings with modern hotel amenities.

Hotel Elliott
www.hotelelliott.com
357 12th Street
503/325-2222
877/378-1924
Both Moderate and Expensive rooms in this very smart downtown hotel, which has a rooftop garden giving lovely views of the Columbia River.

Expensive
Cannery Pier Hotel
www.cannerypierhotel.com
10 Basin Street
503/325-4996
888/325-4996
This modern luxury hotel in an impressive historic building has great river views from every room. It provides boutique hotel comforts, and has its own spa, and complimentary to guests are the breakfast, day-use bicycles, and a nightly wine and lox tasting.


BANDON, OR

Budget
Bandon Beach Motel
www.bandonbeachmotel.com
1090 Portland Avenue SW
541/347-9451
866/945-0133
Only in summer do the room rates go up into the Moderate category, otherwise the Budget rates apply although with only 20 motel units it's best to book ahead. The location is perfect, on a bluff that gives every room an ocean view – the best rooms even have two different ocean views. If you're happy with motel simplicity, then you'll certainly be happy with the Bandon Beach Motel.

Moderate
Best Western Inn at Face Rock
www.facerock.net
3225 Beach Loop Drive
541/347-9441
800/638-3092
Given a choice between the various hotel and motel chains, we often opt for a Best Western (and no, we don't get a commission!) They usually have character, and the company is quietly supportive of good causes. The Inn at Face Rock is a great example of a Best Western, with its pool, spa, hot tub, whirlpool, sauna, steam room, gym, and a proper cooked complimentary breakfast including biscuits and gravy. Some room rates do get up into the Expensive Category in summer.


Expensive
Bandon Dunes Golf Resort
www.bandondunesgolf.com
57744 Round Lake Drive
541/347-4380
888/345-6008
Most people stay here to take advantage of its three golf courses, and there are five restaurants and all the other facilities you'd expect from a large resort-style property. There's a range of room styles and prices, if you're looking for an overnight stay along this pretty stretch of coast.


BODEGA BAY, CA

Moderate
Bodega Bay Lodge and Spa
www.bodegabaylodge.com
103 Coast Highway One
888/875-2250
This is a personal favorite, especially for the views over the wetland and the wildlife that shelters there. It's a fabulous setting, and the size of the place (84 rooms/suites) means it's small enough to feel intimate but big enough to have facilities like the excellent Duck Club Restaurant, a spa, and an ocean-view pool. There's also access to the beach, and a quiet location a short drive from Bodega Bay itself.


BIG SUR, CA

Moderate
Deetjen's Big Sur Inn
www.deetjens.com
48865 Highway 1
831/667-2377
Deetjens is a piece of Big Sur history, founded by Norwegian Helmuth Deetjen in the 1930s and still retaining that rustic Norway feel. There are twenty cabin rooms, not all of them with private bathrooms, and the facilities are pretty basic. It has tons of character, though, with a fabulous setting in among the redwoods, and you can get a room at a Budget price if you don't mind sharing a bathroom. Deetjen's also has one of the best local restaurants, equally characterful and serving a lot of organic, locally-sourced produce. It's on the Pacific Coast Highway, just south of the Henry Miller Library and about three miles south of the Pfieffer Big Sur State Park.


Ragged Point Inn and Resort
www.raggedpointinn.com
19019 Highway One, Ragged Point
805/927-4502
About 50 miles south of the Pfieffer Big Sur State Park, and 20 miles north of Hearst Castle, the 30-room Ragged Point stands on its own atop a cliff and guests have stunning views of that very special Big Sur coastline. You can walk down a cliff path and past waterfalls to get to a private beach, and there's an onsite restaurant too, and several shops selling work by local craftspeople.

Expensive
Glen Oaks Motel
www.glenoaksbigsur.com
Highway 1, Glen Oaks, Big Sur
831/667-2105
Just north of Big Sur village and the State Park, the Glen Oaks Motel is yet another of the delightful places to stay along this stretch of the PCH with cabins and cottages in the redwoods just back from the road. There's a roadhouse just opposite to eat in, if you don't want to drive, although there are plenty of choices around here. It's nothing fancy, and only in Big Sur would a former motel like this get into the Expensive category, but the owners are friendly, and it's clean and comfortable.

Post Ranch Inn
www.postranchinn.com
Highway 1, Big Sur
831/667-2200
800/527-2200
This is resort luxury Big Sur style, with rooms built out of redwoods and all the resort amenities you would expect – a superb spa, the Sierra Mar restaurant, a gym, swimming pools, and free activities like stargazing, cookery demonstrations, yoga classes, whale watching, and many more. You'll find the Post Ranch on the Pacific Coast Highway about 1.5 miles south of the Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, and half a mile south of the Ventana Inn and Spa.

Ventana Inn and Spa
www.ventanainn.com
Highway 1, Big Sur
831/667-2331
800/628-6500
One mile south of the Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park (that's as close as you get to a street address round here), the Ventana is where the rich and famous go to indulge themselves. It's definitely at the top end of the price range, but if you want to splurge when you're in Big Sur, this is the place to do it. Enjoy the two heated pools, the stunning restaurant food (and wine), the spa, the sauna, fitness facilities, yoga classes, afternoon wine and cheese reception, library, DVD library, daily guided walks... you want it, you got it.
