Towns between the Coast and Crater Lake

My wife and I will be in Oregon the last week in August. Our plan is to spend 2 days on the coast and then head to the lake from the central coast. To maximize our time on the coast, we're thinking starting our drive to the lake after dinner and spending the night someplace 2-3 hours from the coast, finishing the drive in the morning. Any suggestions of towns that are 1/2 or more than 1/2 way to the Crater Lake that would have places to stay?

It will be light until oh, 8:30, 9ish in August. Which route were you intending to take? If you take Hwy 38 use the 138 southern cutoff. Sutherlin has a few motels; Roseburg has quite a few.
