This is a much older motel that could really, really use some upgrading. You absolutely cannot beat the view and you are in center of the boardwalk, but! The place is the most basic of basic. Beds - that need replacing, a TV - that needs mounting on the wall, because you cannot see it from the 2nd bed and... More

The room is very clean, is a great location, great ocean view from the window. Is very basic, cheap, clean and a good place to spend the night without all the frills. Could use some updated beds. The staff is very friendly and I had a good stay. Had excellent wifi signal, I had read some reviews where travelers were... More

I will start with a positive. This hotel is in a great location on the beach. By far, it was the lowest priced hotel I've stayed in at Seaside. However, if you can afford to stay somewhere else, do yourself a favor and book a different hotel. We booked a double queen room with a kitchenette back in January. We... More

This is an older motel, but quaint and really right on the beach, just down from the Prom and within easy walking distance of the ocean and all the cute downtown shops and restaurants! The beds are a little hard, but the room was clean, linens were older but clean and we had a 2bedroom suite for a really great... More

Arrived on 10th July 2015, and we had two rooms booked. The first room smelled real musty, the fridge was rusty & the whole place has not been painted or updated since the 1970's My 10 year old daughter was horrified & begged us to leave but we had already paid the $400 so we stayed. Our room was no... More

It is an older motel but a nice one. It adjoins the Promenade and the beach is on the other side. Our room was clean and we had everything we needed. As with all the beach hotels, don't expect the Promenade to quiet down much before midnight on weekends and in the heat of the summer. The price was right,... More

The lady at the front was very nice as she helped answer tons of questions. Beware, the hotel is very old and unattractive. Nice view. Very shady though. Lots of partiers and lots of drunks and drug users hanging out all night. I was very nervous about being a widow with a young kid and staying there. Very creepy! Awesome... More

My wife and I stayed here the weekend of 2/27/2015. The room was clean and the view was outstanding. An amazing weather weekend for Oregon at this time...Mid 50's, no rain, no wind, no clouds. We paid $82 a night not including the $14 fee at the end of our stay (be aware of that). The bed was not too... More

The room was very large and clean. The room had a lovely view of the beach from the window. The price was great and the people at the front desk very nice and helpful. Also, very close to the downtown area with many different atractions.

I knew this was an older motel and to not expect some of the amenities that you might get at other places. I reserved a non-smoking room, which I did get. Unfortunately, the room next door with the connecting door to mine was not. The cigarette smoke from the room next door got so overwhelming at one point, I had... More
