The other two “major” hotels along the waterfront are the Best Western Astoria Bayfront Hotel, at 555 Hamburg Ave., Astoria (phone: (833) 322-8633; bestwesternastoria.com); and the Hampton Inn and Suites Astoria, at 201 39th Street, Astoria (phone: (855) 214-4563; https://www.hilton.com/en/hotels/astorhx-hampton-suites-astoria/?SEO_id=GMB-HP-ASTORHX.
All these hotels are 10-15 minutes from the Clatsop Co. Fairgrounds, where field trip carpools will organize and where the evening events will occur.
There are many other hotels in the Seaside/Gearhart area, further south on the Oregon coast, as well as in or near Astoria.
There are several RV camping sites at the fairgrounds (electricity and water provided, but not sewer), for a $35/night fee. To book those facilities, contact Colleen Larson at (503) 325-4600; firstname.lastname@example.org. No doubt other RVing or camping options are available for those who may wish to investigate them.
