Oregon Coast vs. the Heatwave: Lodgings are Winning

There are numerous vacation homes open in Rockaway.

(Oregon Coast) – It's a serious dog-eat-dog world out on the coast, with 100-degree temps and higher inland. The no-vacancy signs for the weekdays are as prominent as the cars along 101, and many are getting turned away as they walk in without reservations, hoping to find a place to bed down in the cool, coastal air.

Tuesday saw a scramble for rooms with a horde of heat refugees flooding the coastline. Later that night, cars parked by the side of the road with owners sleeping inside were plentiful.

To help the situation a little, BeachConnection.net has contacted close to 1,000 lodgings along the coast and gotten a small response from those with rooms Thursday night through Saturday night. Not all those listed below have openings the entire three days, but many do.

Thursday night – like tonight – is expected to get filled up fast. Walk-ins are making that happen more than phone calls, so make sure you reserve your place now.

These listed below may be more likely to have openings tonight: when the valley is expected to be at its worst.

There are numerous lodgings that have not reported to BeachConnection.net because they know full well they’ll fill up by walk-ins alone. So you may check the regular lodging page at BeachConnection.net for more options.

It is important to call these ahead of time – do not just show up and expect a room.
