The pier was an extension of 12th Avenue, which stopped at Bay Street. The Bayside Inn was on the east side of that intersection. 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 inn because the National Geodetic Service placed a Continuously Operating Reference Station there (see Stand Under Bayocean Hotel Annex's Chimney). Its description says the CORS 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 of Dike Road.
