July 4 2013 lodging near fireworks

Our family would like to stay oceanfront and be able to see the fireworks on the 4th from our lodging. Does anyone have advice for this kind of lodging??

Hello Odhrty,

Several places come to mind.

The . Waterfront blues Festival. And of the hotels on the waterfront.

Cascade Locks in the Columbia Gorge

Corbett

Fort Stevens in Washington

and more.

There will be other people along with more suggestion.

Thanks for the ideas. I guess I needed to clarify this by saying we want to stay in Lincoln City. We are wondering where the fireworks are shot off here. Thanks

The Lincoln City fireworks display goes off over Siletz Bay, and not the Pacific Ocean, so there are very few lodgings with a nearby view. The two I can think of, Waters Edge condos and The Looking Glass Inn are along 52nd (or 51st) Street, closest to the bay. We've stayed several times at LG, but most units do not have a clear view of the bay -- but cross the street and you're right by the beach that borders the northern end of the bay. You might also check out the Inn at Spanish Head -- It's built on a cliffside right on the ocean and each unit has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean. If the angle is good, you might have a clear look at the fireworks area. Give the hotel a call and ask if you can see the fireworks from the rooms.

The fireworks are shot over Siletz Bay in the Taft area at the far south end of town. There are several motels in that area.

However, this year there was a bunch of wrangling over even having them for various reasons. Also, the casino had offered to pay for them if the firework display was moved to the casino property.

So who knows what will happen next summer?

To be safe, you should probably investigate booking a room in both locations, making sure you can cancel without penalty.

My mistake. I was tired last night. Not your mistake, it is in writing.

Sorry.

Well, if the fireworks are moved to the Chinook Winds Casino area, their hotel would be an obvious choice. Depending on where they will be launched, there are a few motels & B&B's near the casino. One good possibility -- although not oceanfront is the Liberty Inn, on Logan Road. It's located on the hillside behind the casino and if you ask for a west-facing room, I would bet you'd have a great view of fireworks. Prices are cheaper than many LC motels, a nice breakfast is included and -- best of all -- you'll avoid what is sure to be a huge crowd on the casino property.

Won't do much good for July 4, but I just got an e-mail from Liberty Inn re: a Sunday-Thursday special for the rest of the month -- $169 for two nights.
