Newport, Oregon is a fairly decent size beach town in Oregon about 3 hours from Portland, Oregon. We spent spring break there one year and did all kinds of fun stuff. Since then we’ve been back a few times for just a night or two.

Newport Oregon Hotels
Best Western at Agate Beach – We stayed here and our room had a mini fridge, coffee maker, and two beds. It’s on the beach and they have an indoor pool. Breakfast is not included, but cheap.
Schooner Landing – We spent a week here and really enjoyed it. It had an on-site playground and fire pit. There is an indoor pool and jacuzzi at the clubhouse. It’s up above the beach, so just a short walk down and you are on the beach. This is a timeshare so all units have either one or two bedrooms, a kitchen, and a living room.
