One of our favorite road trips shouldn’t surprise most people who live in the Pacific Northwest. Highway 101 up and down the Oregon Coast offers some of the best scenery in the region. Stopping at the many public beaches, state parks and recreation sites, and small beach towns can turn any drive into a full day event. There really is so much to see that it makes it hard to stay penned up in the car too long.
A great place to stop for a few hours, overnight, or even for a stay of a few days or more is Rockaway Beach. If you’re looking for a place to spend the night while you’re there, you can’t go wrong with choosing the Silver Sands Resort.
When you stay at Silver Sands Resort you’re staying at a true beachfront hotel. Your room is going to give you a wonderful view of the beach and the Pacific Ocean. There are even trails that lead right fron the grassy area out in front of the hotel down to the soft sand and the surf beyond it. High tide, low tide, and all times in between; you’re conveniently located in a spot where you can access the beach at a moment’s notice.
The staff at the Silver Sands is very friendly and extremely helpful. This is an older hotel but has been modernized and updated in some important ways. We found the microwave and mini fridge to be very helpful and convenient. This is the perfect place to go for that classic small beach town vacation experience.
While, like us, you’re probably considering an Oregon Coast vacation because you want to be near the ocean, there are still some things you’ll want back at your hotel. The Silver Sands Resort has a lot to offer in that regard too, including a pool, hot tub, and spa. You’ll also find flat screen televisions and free wireless internet too. A nice homey touch is the board games available to borrow from the office.
One of the best things about the Silver Sands Resort is its location in Rockaway Beach. It’s right in the center of this small vacation getaway and there are several shops and restaurants in all directions. Rockaway Beach is a nice little town and getting out and exploring it on foot can be a lot of fun.
The Oregon Coast is as awesome as they say and Rockaway Beach is a top notch place to stop. If you want to spend the night there, you can’t go wrong with a stay at the Silver Sands Resort.
