3 nights on the north coast would be nice. So you need pet-friendly lodging? What is your nightly budget? :).

That is a low budget for Cannon Beach, so consider staying in Seaside. Rates will be cheaper in October. Check out Tides By The Sea or Lanai @ The Cove. :)

With 10 nights, I'd suggest 3 on the north coast in either Cannon Beach or Manzanita, 4 on the central coast in Newport or Yachats, and 3 on the south coast in Bandon.

Rainy season typically starts around mid-October here, so plan for the possibility of getting wet, and if you have the flexibility, set your travel dates for early in the month. September would be better if you can manage it.

Seaside is a good base for exploring the north coast, from Tillamook up into Washington's Long Beach peninsula. Newport's my choice for activities from Tillamook south to Florence. And Bandon's a good sport for roaming the south coast -- Florence to Brookings.

All three have lots of lodging choices and prices are often a little less than trendier towns (such as Cannon Beach).

Hi again, trixster. If you click on the blue link below, you will find a TripAdvisor Traveler Article with a brief description of all towns located along the Oregon coast. This will give you more information:

As to your list . . . Tillamook is inland, Florence is slightly inland, "coos" is the town of Coos Bay which is inland. I honestly would not suggest any of these locations for your trip. Not sure what you mean by "umpqua" as there is no town named that!

As far as lodging, your budget is low for Cannon Beach but your approximate $100 should be fine in all other towns. Just about every town has less expensive lodging in smaller motels. Don't expect oceanfront, however there actually are a few less expensive motels with ocean views and even one that is oceanfront!

If you click on the link below, you'll find a TripAdvisor Traveler Article that will give you a full list of less expensive lodging along the Oregon coast:

The coastal weather is usually good through about the third week of Oct. Even then it doesn't start right off with howling wind and sheeting rain, but will be noticeably cooler and you may get some rain. Of course, depending upon where you live in Calif, that might be a welcome change :-)
