It's not a high class "hotel" but it is a very cute motel. We enjoyed our stay! The rooms are smaller but still very cute. It's nice to have a full kitchen also. We used the pool one evening too. Older so not as advanced as other high end hotels but also priced perfect for a family stay that is... More

The staff was very nice but that's about all that is good about this property. Where do I start...worse than a motel 6. Faucet leaked, room small, dirty, no secure locks on door, no hair dryer...did I say dirty?

This was our first time in Seaside, and I was very excited when I got my room. We stayed in room 212, we had two dogs and two teenagers and it fit all of us very well. It was very nice and comfortable, the beds were great, very comfy. It had a full kitchen so we could cook, it had... More

My fiance and I stayed here with our baby and two older kids. Our room came with a kitchen and a separate bedroom (which was really nice with the baby). The hotel is really conveniently located, right in the center of everything, and just a block away from the Seaside Aquarium and the beach. My only complaint, and it's really... More

When we arrived the room was hot and stuffy and smelled of cleaning agents. No AC in the room and no window that could be opened. I had to go buy a fan in order to sleep at night. There was also hair in the bedding from a previous tenant. I have advised the management of this in the past... More

I was lucky to find a room here; it was about the last one in town (I didn't know Seaside as a whole is generally booked solid all summer long...I don't travel much anymore), and I was happy to get it. The room and environs were clean--the carpeting suffers, being so close to sand and the sea, but otherwise the... More

My family stayed in a King, 2 queen room with a kitchen. It was perfect. Plenty of space and the beds were comfortable!! Room was clean and staff was friendly. Pool was my only complaint, It was not very inviting. The walls are thin and other guests were very noisy, but that's not the motels fault so, otherwise, perfect location... More

Carmen at the front desk was very helpful. The bed was very very comfortable. We had a room with a king bed. There was a large sofa too. Nice TV. Very clean. It was so nice to stay at an affordable place and still be a block away from Broadway where all the fun and restaurants are.
