There are plenty of places to stay when fishing with me in Astoria. And while it’s difficult to know everyone’s taste for quality or value, I’ve tried to provide some descriptions that will help you understand a little about price, quality, and location. In addition to the hotels below, for those staying for a few days, you could always check out the Astoria VRBO listings as well. Of course you can always contact us if you have any questions. I’m here to help with your entire fishing trip to Astoria!
Also note that I have negotiated rates with some of the hotels in the area. Upon booking I will provide any available coupon codes.
This hotel spa is located right next to Astoria West Basin. It is a lot nice option for those looking for something a more upscale. Walk to my boat in the morning, dinner in the evenings and go for a walk along the Columbia River when you get a spare 30 minutes. You might even take advantage of their Spa! I’ve had lots of clients stay here when fishing Astoria with me and I’ve never heard a complaint.
My boat is moored at West Basin, which is right in front of the Riverwalk Hotel. Your room will likely be looking over the marina and in the morning, walk down the gang plank to my boat. All of our fish cleaning and such is right there. If you arrive early enough the afternoon before your fishing trip, send me a text and come down to say, “Hi.” The hotel is 2-3 stars, but for those looking for convenience in the morning, and being able to walk to eat in the evenings, this is the place for you.
Crisp, clean hotel located right under the Astoria-Megler Bridge. The bridge is an iconic symbol for Astoria Columbia River fishermen. You’ll notice it in lots of fish pictures! You can walk to Astoria West Basin in the morning if you’d like. Lots to eat in the area and the view isn’t bad either if you chose the riverfront rooms.
Located just a short drive down Hwy 101 from Astoria, the McMenamins Gearhart Hotel does an incredible job working with our customers. If you have an early launch time, they’ll even try to arrange an early breakfast or a late lunch when you get back from fishing. In addition to the hotel and restaurant, they have some nice golfing options as well.
Camp Rilea is a great deal for active or retired military. The base will actually rent its living facilities to those retired or active military visiting the area. The rates are cheap, in fact, dirt cheap, so if you qualify, this might be as good a deal as you’ll ever find on lodging. They also have some RV parking too. Camp Rilea is located just on the outskirts of Warrenton. For more info visit the U.S. Military Campgrounds and RV Parks page.
Shilo Inn’s are a regional operator. There is a mexican restaurant and a Starbucks, along with a ton of shopping within walking distance of the hotel. The hotel and location are nothing special.
Really inexpensive option for those just looking for a place to sleep. The only thing nice about it is that you can walk to Buoy 9. The Inn is also walking distance to the Hammond Boat Basin if you happen to be fishing with one of my guides that launches out of Hammond.
Located at the east end of Astoria, the Comfort Suites is comfortable and affordable, but you’ll be up close and personal with the wildlife. Comfort Suites is right on the water and next to a haven for sea lions. If you’re a light sleeper I’d probably find another option. If you choose this hotel, ask for a room on the quiet side. The hotel is located right next to the East End mooring basin, which I use at times during the the Salmon and Sturgeon seasons. Safeway is right next door as well which is kind of nice.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I’m happy to help!
