The oceanfront Seashore Inn on the Beach lets you stay right on the famous Prom in Seaside, where you can play on the beach, stroll the promenade to take in a sunset or take a walk down Broadway for some great shopping. The central location of the hotel is within easy walking distance of the Seaside Aquarium, the shops along Broadway and numerous restaurants. Your car can stay parked while you take in the town and the beach. All 54 guestrooms have microwaves, mini-refrigerators and DVD players, and there are also some rooms with full kitchens. If a swim is what you have in mind, but the ocean is too cold for comfort, the Seashore Inn has an indoor pool, whirlpool and sauna. Private oceanview balconies or patios offer great vantage points for taking in the vast panorama. Seashore Inn on the Beach is at 60 N Prom (888) 738-6368.
