I like staying at the Lanai at the Cove in the south end of Seaside. http://www.seasidelanai.com
I agree with Gail that Seaside is very crowded but the Lanai is an older condo, only 2 stories I think, off away from the commercialization & crowds of Seaside. It sits right on the beach altho it's rocky right in front. You can watach surfers do their thing, along with seals, pelicans, & other seabirds. It would be a lovely 1st night, watching the sun go down on the left coast, glass of wine in hand. Camp 18 is a great, fun place to eat but bring your biggest appetite. One of my old friends was a cousin to the logger, Gordon Smith, who built Camp 18 as a labor of love to display all his old logging gear. Very interesting...& be sure to look up while you're in the restaurant & see the gigantic timber holding up the roof. Just don't grow them like that anymore! Be sure to eat at the Ship Inn if you go to Astoria...best fish & chips....altho I like the squid & chips. It's on 2nd St. & Marine Drive, under the Astoria Bridge.
