Fusion Lodging came to Lincoln City three years ago and is already making big changes on Highway 101.
“We had a vision to blend together a modern vibe with a beachy feel. Lincoln City is such an amazing town, we are happy to be able to make changes that benefit our community,” said Sazzadur Rahman, who represents the ownership group for The Inn at Lincoln City and has even more plans for the future.
Spanning from Lincoln City to Newport, the group has purchased five hotel properties. The Inn at Lincoln City has seen the most changes so far. People may have noticed the dull-colored building being brought back to life recently with a vibrant paint scheme of blues that complement the ocean town. The old entryway has been completely remodeled, removing the bulky portico and adding some beautiful cedar. Now guests can better enjoy water views from both sides of the hotel with its unique location, allowing wave watching from the ocean side and bird watching on the D River from the front side. For an even closer look and a chance for a little evening romance, new outdoor gas firepits sit right on the river’s edge.
“We are really proud of the interior lobby design. We worked with a design team, Oculus, but everything was truly brought together by Brenda Pate, a manager for Fusion Lodging, who brought in so many special local elements,” Rahman said, quick to praise his staff for all of their efforts through the improvements.
The custom glass float lighting and wood finishes in the lobby create an open, inviting space for guests. There is a large hot breakfast area with plenty of seating for families to enjoy a waffle and some scrambled eggs or fresh fruit. The lounge area and fireplace are cozy — the only reason to leave is to enjoy the privacy of your room and the local attractions.
“We might be a little new to this area of the coast, but we wanted to make sure we represented it with our design,” Rahman said. “The beauty and the culture of Lincoln City is a lot of the reason we expanded our business here.”
Fusion Lodging has also begun renovations on the hotel across the street, now Ocean Breeze, as well as Moolack Shores and the Waves Hotel in Newport. The Surfrider Resort in Depoe Bay also belongs to Fusion Lodging, and they have made some exciting changes to the iconic restaurant there. “We are always working to improve our guest experience,” Rahman said.
