The pier was an extension of 12th Avenue, which stopped at Bay Street. Miller's Bay Hotel was on the east side of that intersection. The pier began a little east of that. So, if you were arriving by boat, you could just walk off the pier and check in.
We know the coordinates of the northeast corner of the hotel because the National Geodetic Service placed a Continuously Operating Reference Station there (see Stand Under Bayocean Hotel Annex's Chimney).The description says it was 260' west of the shore of the Tillamook Bay. By using online measuring tools and a Tillamook County tax map that shows both the Dike Road and original Bayocean plat map, I determined that end of the pier would have been at least 1/8 mile west (into the bay) of Dike Road.
