Connect with the beauty of Oregon by checking into a hotel room with stunning views. One of the best things about the Eugene, Cascades & Coast region is how the area's urban places flow naturally into valleys, woodlands, mountains and coastlines.

Here are a few standout hotels with views to get you started.

The Oregon Coast

Driftwood Shores Resort

Beach & Ocean Views

An excellent storm-watching destination, each room at Driftwood Shores Resort faces the ocean. The large hotel is a short drive from Historic Old Town Florence and right on the wide-open sands of Heceta Beach. When the weather is calm, enjoy the endless blue sky and sea, sparkling in the sunshine. Watch storms roll in across the sea with pounding waves and dramatic skies. After a storm, and at low tide, walk the miles of beach looking for natural treasures tossed up on the shore. Enjoy the sunset from the floor-to-ceiling picture windows in the hotel's market and deli, from your cozy room or walk down to the beach to watch from the shoreline.

Best Western Pier Point

River & Old Town Views

On the south side of the Siuslaw River, the Best Western Pier Point hotel looks across the river to the picturesque charm of Historic Old Town Florence. Nestled in the crook of Highway 101, discover this beautifully landscaped hotel property complete with an indoor swimming pool and a restaurant called the Bay View with picture windows overlooking the water. Each hotel room faces the river and you can request a balcony room for extra views. 

River House Inn

Bridge & River Views

The River House Inn is on the banks of the Siuslaw River, just west of the historic Siuslaw River Bridge, and on the edge of Historic Old Town Florence. This well-maintained hotel is ideally situated for walking to the shops and restaurants on Bay Street, yet removed enough for a quiet riverfront experience. For the best view, request a river-facing room with a balcony. Sit outside and watch the fishing boats come and go. The bridge and boat lights at night make it even more magical, especially when the fog drifts in. The bridge opens up to give taller ships passage, which is a treat for anyone with lucky timing. Gaze across the far banks of the river to the sand dunes with their mountain-high slopes of shining sand dotted with sandboarders and dune buggies. 

Heceta Head Lighthouse B&B

Ocean Views

Stay in the historic former Assistant Lighthouse Keeper's home on the edge of Oregon's dramatic coastal cliffs beneath the Heceta Head Lighthouse. From the antique multi-paned windows, look out onto the rugged coastal terrain below. While your ocean view varies by room, everyone can relax on the home's spacious porch for full immersive views of the rugged coast and sprawling sea. Hike up to the lighthouse or down to the sheltered beach below, and overnight guests are even invited to hike up to the lighthouse after dark for a truly special view of the sea and stars punctuated by the lighthouse beam.


The Graduate Hotel

Eugene Skyline

Towering beside the Hult Center for the Performing Arts, the Graduate Eugene is one of downtown Eugene's tallest buildings. Enjoy sweeping views of the city and Willamette Valley hills from south-facing rooms.  Even the interior views will draw you in, with collegiate spirit and tributes to the University of Oregon, Steve Prefontaine and other local running heroes. The lobby mimics a museum with its sports, Nike and regional collectibles throughout that reflect the community’s love for track and college sports.

The Gordon Hotel

Market District

This artsy hotel embraces urban views of the Market District. Gaze down upon the cheerful hustle and bustle of outdoor shopping plazas and sidewalk cafes. The Gordon Hotel places you squarely in a city atmosphere, but within the hotel, your eyes will feast on many tributes to creativity. Soak up an artistic showcase from modern screen visuals to juried oil paintings by hotel staff. Try your hand at painting in the lobby art bar. Carlita’s Rooftop Bar offers views of the city from the top of The Gordon along with cantina favorites like tacos and margaritas all year long.

Market District

Step out onto the balcony of Eugene's high end boutique hotel, the Inn at the 5th, for the full European feel. Spread out below is the 5th Street Public Market with its unique shops, urban wine tasting bars and exceptional restaurants. The many-tiered and terraced levels of the market are furnished with bistro tables, flowering shrubs and bright sun shades. Live music floats upwards from the courtyards below on summer nights.

Cascade Mountains

Westfir Lodge

Forest & Bridge

The Westfir Lodge was once the office building for a local timber company and is now a comfortable lodge that caters to outdoor enthusiasts. From the bedrooms, you'll see the wild, green forest and a charming red bridge. The site of the lodge places you directly in front of Oregon's longest covered bridge, Office Bridge, which you can cross on foot or in your car to access hiking trails. Enjoy a cold craft brew from the on-site Mountain Market on the lodge patio. Their in-house activity center offers guided tours and excursions.

Eagle Rock Lodge

McKenzie River

On the banks of the McKenzie River, hide away at Eagle Rock Lodge. From your cozy cabin or lodge room, take in the crystal-clear McKenzie River and lush forests. Explore fishing, rafting, and kayaking with local guides to see the view from the middle of the river. The view will tempt you to the water's edge to sit and just be present.
