Ocean Shores has been welcoming Pacific Northwest beachgoers since the 1960s, when celebrities including Pat Boone invested in a resort-style community – complete with golf and a network of canals. The town has had its share of struggles since its splashy start, but miles of beaches remain a big draw for strolling, kite flying and many annual events. Browse our list of the best hotels in Ocean Shores, Washington – bookable with Culture Trip.

Under new management since 2021, BayVue Hotel Resort Suites has a prime location near the beach. Rooms are spacious, and some even have fireplaces. Rates include a generous hot breakfast buffet with make-your-own waffles, biscuits and gravy and lots more. Enjoy the indoor pool and hot tub – especially when storms roll over the coast.

This well-kept complex is one of the more upscale options on the Washington coast – an array of choices include the adults-only inn, with comfortable, plush furnishings, and family-friendly cottages with fully equipped kitchens. This handsome property is at the south end of the Ocean Shores peninsula, close to wonderful beach strolls but only a few miles from the amenities in town.

3. Ocean Paradise Hotel and Resort

Wake up to the sound of the surf at this older motel situated a short walk from the ocean. Amenities include a swimming pool, a hot tub, a courtyard with tables and a little miniature golf course. Many guests say the rooms in this former Quality Inn could use an update – but rates include breakfast, and the location is good, within sight of the beach and close to several restaurants and bars.

4. Quinault Beach Resort

The Quinault Beach Resort is set back a bit from the sand, but it’s close enough for strolling to the driftwood-strewn beach and enjoying the ocean’s roar. Just 3mi (5km) north of Ocean Shores, the self-contained tribal resort offers a casino, several restaurants, a spa and guest rooms that are a cut above the mostly scruffy ones in town.

5. Best Western Lighthouse Suites Inn

Your room comes with breakfast – for dinner, check out Galway Bay Irish Pub, a 10-minute walk away and a true local favorite with a game room and outdoor dining.
