Today was another beautiful day and we decided to go as far as Tillamook (home of Tillamook Cheese Factory) and see what we could see....
Our first stop was Cannon Beach - a lovely little town that would remind you of Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket, MA - I could definitely live in a town like this - however affording it would be another thing. Why didn't I wain the $400M lottery - oh I didn't play! No wonder. Cannon Beach ...

... were used to store hay. In 1993 hangar A burnt to the ground leaving just the concrete end door supports. Lucky for us that hangar B is still standing and is the site for the museum.
When we came out of the museum it was raining so hard it was like a waterfall on the sides of the hangar. Fortunately as we drove back to the campground the rain stopped for a short while so we decided to drive the Cape Loop Road along ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Salishan Spa and Golf Resort Gleneden Beach
Can't wait to visit again!!!
My husband and I visited over the weekend of July 1-3rd. The rooms were neatly decorated, clean and very comfortable. We had a view of the bay and saw wild rabbits daily. The staff was very friendly and courteous. My husband played golf and shopped in the lodge. It was beautiful surroundings with the best personnel. We can't wait to visit again. The price was on the higher end but well worth it. Don't waste your time with saving a few dollars this is the best for your pleasure.
I did stay at this resort and had the worst experience ever it does not worse the money. Their customer service is really poor. We book it on line with early check in, than called them and remind them that we need early check in and we needed to make sure, so on the phone they said that it wouldn't be a problem. We came there at noon, our room wasn't ready, so we decided to go to the ocean and some shopping. We came back to the hotel around 4:30PM and our room still wasn't ready. My wife got pissed and started to asked them how long doest usually to clean the room, and the response was: "as long as it takes you just have to wait, in the main time I can help you next person". Well we wait, and finally we got the room around 5:20-5:35 PM, but that wasn't the room we ordered, we ordered ocean view (actually they don't even have ocean view cause the ocean is so far away that you do not even see it) and on the second floor with vaulted sealing, instead our room was on the first floor, carpet was old and ugly, and it was facing the golf course instead of ocean. Also, friends of ours stayed there at the same time and they saw all that, so they asked if we will get any discount or any treat to make it up for inconvenience and they told them that they will think of something and will give us a call. We never got a phone call, instead we found later that in our packaged should off been included fruit basket that our fiends got but not us. So, I am totally disappointed and will not recommend it to any one, besides one of the front desk people told us that this kind of staff happens once in a wile, who knows what do they mean by that.
I recently went to the Oregon Coast for memorial weekend and stayed at Salishan for 3 nights. Since I have never been to the Oregon Coast before so I had nothing to compare the hotel with except for previous 4/5 star hotels I've stayed at in other states.
We were very impressed with our stay. The rooms clearly have been remodeled recently: clean, tasteful, and 5-star bedding. The gym & pool area were also very nicely renovated. Exercise equipment was up-to-date, the pool was great for laps, and the sauna & lockeroom were spa-quality. We never ate at the expensive restaurant, but the family restaurant had excellent food (great prime rib, fish n chips). We also appreciated the new computers & printer in the internet cafe. Overall the staff was very friendly, down-to-earth, and helpful. One employee, Rebecca, in the gift shop actually lent us her personal guide books of the coast for the entire week. We would definitely recommend this place. You get a lot for the money. There are a lot of dumpy places on the coast. This is not one of them.
Planned a trip down to Newport for the weekend and searched for alternate places to stay since I've stayed at the Salishan before. Never had issues, just wanted something new and different. I couldn't believe how much some of the dumpy chains along the coast were charging. The Inn at the Spanish Head was a good alternative but it was sold out. I never did like the parking situation there anyway. Ended up staying at the Salishan again since it's only about 25-30 minutes away. I had forgotten how much I really liked this place. Twice now I've had my own covered car port (very important if you have a nice car --wide spaces, ends available = less door dings) plus the convenience of being out of the rain. It rains sometimes here in Oregon...

How do you make a reservation?
We tried to make reservations at Salishan with your two suggestions of Expedia and Travelocity. Both said that any dates we asked for, there were no rooms available. Are they truly representing your interests in this property?
After years of reading rave reviews regarding Salishan's wine cellar and fine dining, I was thrilled to find myself on the Oregon Coast and able to get reservations for the dining room for Thanksgiving dinner.
With a much anticipated trip to the Oregon coast approaching, I made reservations for Thanksgiving dinner at the Salishan Lodge. Long known for its excellent wine cellar and quality food under Westin management, I felt confident I would have a dinner to remember.
