More about the Tolovana Inn


Canon Beach is located 70 miles west of Portland, Oregon. Those arriving at the Portland airport can rent a car and drive to Cannon Beach, or take a bus provided by Western Oregon University. The cost of the bus is $70.00 return transportation. The bus will stop at two Portland Airport Hotels as well as the Portland Airport. The bus will pick up participants at the Holiday Inn Portland-Airport I-205 at 11:45 a.m., May 11th, and the Ramada Inn & Suites Portland Airport at 12:00 p.m., May 11th. The bus will then pick up participants at the Portland Airport at 12:30 p.m. This will hopefully allow some participants wishing to fly in on the morning of the 11th to take advantage of the bus service.

There are many airport hotels from which to choose that have shuttle service to and from the airport. So if you wish to select a different hotel from the two listed, you would be able to take the shuttle service to and from the hotel to the airport and meet our bus at 12:30 that will take you to the coast.

You can book your hotels online at the Portland International Airport Guide:
