You’ve decided to book a fishing trip with Marvin’s Guide Service in Astoria, Oregon. Now your question is: Where do I stay the night before?
Let’s talk about hotels and motels in and around Astoria.
In this article, I’m going to put together a small list of hotels and motels that will meet your needs if you’re coming down to fish with me during the famous Buoy 10 salmon fishery in the late summer or to catch limits of fresh crab in the fall.
South Jetty Inn in Hammond
Location: 984 Pacific Dr., Hammond, OR 97121
Information: Website or 503-861-8868
When salmon fishing, I like to use the Hammond Marina. Right next door here in Hammond, which is just a little bit west of Astoria, you’ll find this little hotel called the South Jetty Inn.
The nice thing here is that South Jetty Inn Hotel is within walking distance (5 minutes) to the Hammond Marina. That’s a huge advantage early in the morning, so you don’t have to fight the crowds and find and pay for parking to go fishing.
A few other attractions when staying at the South Jetty Inn are that you’ll be within walking distance or a short drive to Fort Stevens State Park and Lewis & Clark National Historical Park.

Motel 6 Astoria is located in the heart of Historic Union Town District alongside the Columbia River and Astoria Riverwalk Trail, and near the foot of the Astoria-Megler Bridge.

More Places to Stay
There are lots more hotels, motels and other types of accommodations in and around Astoria to meet any of your needs.
If you plan to bring an RV or camper, there are additional options to set up camp nearby, including the RV park right at the marina and the big state parks a short drive away.
I pretty much live in the Astoria area during the prime seasons, so if you have questions, just let me know.
