Coastal Hotel with Fresh-Seafood Restaurant Overlooking Pacific Ocean
Despite its remote location along the Pacific coastline, the city of Bandon, Oregon, has built a reputation for great food. Budget Travel named it one of the Coolest Small Towns in America, labeling Bandon a haven for farm-to-table restaurateurs drawn to the area due to its local produce. At The Inn at Face Rock, a Best Western hotel, you won’t have to look far for a great meal. The onsite Bandon Bill’s Seafood Grill serves fresh fish and barbecue, often slow-cooked in a smoker.
With this getaway, you’ll receive a $20 hotel credit that you can apply toward a meal at Bandon Bill's Seafood Grill. The restaurant’s signature dish is a fish fillet that’s charbroiled with mesquite on an ale-soaked cedar plank and served atop of a bed of asparagus-mushroom risotto. Breakfast is served each morning at Bandon Bill's, too. From 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., you can dig into a hot breakfast buffet of scrambled eggs, pastries, muffins, sausages, make-your-own waffles, cereal, and biscuits. The hotel credit can also be applied toward onsite dining at Tony's Fireside Pizza.
The area contains several attractions waiting to be explored. The Inn at Face Rock has access to secluded beaches across Beach Loop Drive, where you can walk along the Pacific coastline and spot the large, misshapen boulder known as Face Rock. The craggy rock resembles the profile of a woman who has just surfaced from beneath the sea.
Bandon, Oregon: Windswept Beach Town with Renowned Golf
Bandon is located on Oregon’s Pacific coast and surrounded by forested hills. On a stroll along its unspoiled beachfront, you can find agate, petrified wood, jasper, and tide pools. Just a 10-minute drive from the hotel is downtown Bandon, whose charming Old Town area features quaint shops and boutiques brimming with various homemade goods and artisanal wares.
The windswept Bandon Dunes is a must-visit for golfers, when the weather is warm enough to play. It’s made up of four award-winning courses, each of which sits 100 feet above the Pacific Ocean. The grassy dunes sprawl over Oregon's rugged coastal terrain, which recalls Scotland’s links-style courses.
