This is an older Motel, but it was clean and very spacious.We had a 2 bedroom w/ queen beds and a King bed in the main room, so 3 beds and a kitchen gave us a lot of room to spread out. The prices were very good considering the prices of other motels at Seaside- and its only a block... More

Grabbed a reservation at the City Center for a couple of nights so my dog could enjoy the cool beach weather. If you're looking for a four star experience, keep looking. The City Center is a budget experience at a budget price. Pros: Location - Sited a couple of blocks from the main drag and a couple of block from... More

The rooms are very small but was fine for my daughter and myself. I was disappointed that I went to the office with an issue and nothing ended up being done about it. I had a family of 6 (in a small 1 queen size room) across from me. Both nights I was there the children were running all over... More

The hotel had an excellent position . right down the street from the promenade and close to the city center with the shops and resturaunts. The rooms are incredibly small. My room (single queen) was too small to have two people up and walking at the same time. We would have to take turns to get up and do something...... More

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I am sorry to hear the queen room did not meet your expectations. For a party of three I recommend a room with two queen beds. Our motel has different types of room types based on guest needs. Sorry you couldn’t get into your room at 3pm; our check... More

No phone, no clock, television was on the wall of the side of the bed, no nightstand on one side of the bed and very cramped. Roomed smelled of stale smoke. Pool was very small compared to the pictures online. Even with a discounted rate, we could have stayed somewhere nicer for the same price. The only thing we did... More

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review on TripAdvisor. We don’t offer many amenities because we try and keep our rates low for such a high and busy Season in Seaside. Thank you for highlighting the fact that we are a basic motel centrally located in downtown Seaside. We strive to offer clean, comfortable rooms for... More

City Center Motel is really a one star motel. The pictures on the website were misleading. The first room had cigarette butts outside the door. Inside it smelled of stale cigarette smoke masked with air freshener. We were switched to another room and it was dingy (one of lamps did not work and another was missing a lamp shade), it... More

My husband and I just wanted a really cheap place by the beach, and this place fit the bill. We stayed on the 2nd floor, which I loved. The room/hallway smelled really musty and damp, but it's an older Motel right by the water, I wasn't surprised. Our bed was suuuuuper comfy (king) and the WIFI was good. I figure... More

We stayed here over memorial weekend. The room was dirty and dusty! My son has dust allergy and I was paranoid he would have a reaction.. The floors were dirty and the room was moist for some reason. All of our stuff ended up moist! The shower was terrible! The water would not reach the shower head. So most of... More

Room had a dingy animal smell, kitchen floor was sticky. Found ants in the bed. Be warned there is no air conditioner or vent system of any kind. Could not get the wifi to connect. The customer service was not impressive.
