Staying in Portland, One day on coast. Suggestions?

I'm going to be visiting my daughter in Portland this summer, and we'd like to drive to the coast and spend one night there. Any suggestions on the best town to stay in given the limited time frame? We like hiking and nature more than tourist attractions and fancy restaurants.

Most Portland visitors go to Cannon Beach, which is very scenic. However, due to its proximity to Portland metro area's 2 million people, it is also crowded and pricey. Most places there have a two night minimum stay.

You might look at Yachats on the central coast, which is 3 - 3½ hours from Portland. It's also very scenic with a small fraction of the congestion of Cannon Beach.

Manzanita and Gearhart are two quiet coastal towns. :)
