|TENOR GUITAR GATHERING PLACES TO STAY!
This might be the most expensive, but if you can afford it, it's the best place to stay, in my opinion. Beautiful rooms, built on a pier that sits on the Columbia River. My Mom and Sister stay here when they visit and love it.
"Where It's Good To Sleep Under The Bridge"
Less expensive than the Cannery Pier Hotel, but very clean and modern. Great breakfast room with free breakfast. Great views. Right on the Columbia River and next to the Astoria-Megler Bridge, over four miles long, to Washington State.
A newly renovated historic hotel in the heart of downtown Astoria. Small, clean rooms with a bathroom down the hall, and "suites" with bathrooms. I liked this place when I did a walk through.
A historic registered landmark hotel in the heart of downtown Astoria
Has a rooftop deck and a winebar and cigar room in the basement.
Right on the Columbia River, across from the dock where all the Sea lions are.
This looks like a very cool old Motel to stay in. Beautiful views. It's the first Motel you come to driving to Astoria from Portland. It was featured in Seattle Magazine as a "Northwest best places"!
I have not checked this hotel out, although I have always liked Best Westerns in other parts of the country...like the one in Lone Pine, California. It is a little farther away from the heart of town, but is located where Young's Bay and the Columbia River meet. The Holiday Inn Express is almost right under the Astoria-Megler Bridge, and the Cannery Pier Hotel is approximately one block west, and the Best Western is about six blocks west of the Cannery Pier.
All three are on the Columbia River. They have an indoor pool, spa and sauna. Worth checking out their website and deciding for yourself. It is the Best Western Lincoln Inn at 555 Hamburg Street.
An 1890's Victorian Home Under $100 per night, includes full breakfast.
