Gold Beach has a fairly large selection of lodging. If you are looking for top-tier, your choice is Tu Tu Tun. It is not on the beach, it is about 8 miles inland on the river. You can join the boat ride there without having to drive to Jerry's office at the marina.
The nicest of the beach lodging is probably Pacific Reef Condos.
Tu Tu Tu Lodge is a beautiful property with many nice amenities. We never left the property once we checked in. They have outdoor hot tubs on the decks, a great heated swimming pool, breakfast and dinner and a lovely appetizer/wine reception in the afternoon. :)
