We made late plans to go to Seaside and had few choices for a room. Most were the high end prices, but the City Center Motel had rooms for a great price. The motel is an old school road house type of place where the rooms are almost apartment's with all you need for a long stay. Oddly, the one... More

Love this place. We reserved the king plus 2 queens with a kitchenette and were very pleased. It was more like a little apartment than a motel. The king was in the main room and then there was two bedrooms with a queen in each. The kitchen has a full size fridge, sink and a stove. Not to mention dishes,... More

Great location, great price, friendly staff, clean, dog-friendly. Yes, it might be a little worn, but on a budget, it was a great place to stay. Only two blocks from the beach, and right in the center of town, so you could walk everywhere. It has a pool, but we mainly came into town for one evening for a beach... More

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
