This place was wonderful! My husband and I decided to take a trip down the coast and came across this place to stay for the night. It was close to the ocean, close to everything downtown, the room we stayed in was wonderful and clean, and the best part was the wonderful hospitality from the owners! Ruth took care of... More

Hands down, this is the best hotel we've ever stayed in. The room is immaculate, the grounds are beautifully maintained, downtown Seaside and the beach are a mere minutes' walk, and the owners are the most lovely people you'll ever meet! We went to the beach for the evening, and the owner, Ruth, brought us a blanket to take with... More

We are budget-wise travelers and stayed at the Hillcrest Inn on a recent trip to the Oregon Coast. It was a wonderful place to stay. The room was immaculate and the bed was very comfortable. Plus, Ruth (the owner) was extremely helpful in recommending things to do and places to eat. We would definitely stay at the Hillcrest again.

Was apprehensive about what I would find at the 2 bedroom cottage we rented - the photo showed a smallish room with old style tv, but it would serve our needs and give us more space than a 2 queen bed room which is the standard offering. Was AMAZED at the cute, roomy cottage and it's comfort and cleanliness~~~~ and... More

We stayed here for three nights while on a motorcycle trip and just loved the place. We did chose one of the small rooms but it had everything we needed and it was nice. The staff was just wonderful to us, if you needed anything for your stay they would help you out. They have a great location for walking... More

This is a very clean hotel, that has an inviting atmosphere. Our room was a queen, with a large whirlpool tub, and a gas fireplace. We also had coffeemaker, microwave, and fridge. There were plenty of towels, and really nice personal items such as shampoo, conditioner, etc. The bed was quite comfy, and there were extra pillows. Our room was... More

Older place but comfortable and clean with both cottages and rooms. All non-smoking, several pet friendly. Walking distance (two blocks, did not use car for three days) to fun downtown with lots of food, drink and shopping, and just a block off the beach. All very convenient. Don (retired Marine) and Ruth were superb hosts, most helpful, even with library... More

We have stayed at Hillcrest Inn numerous times and have always been pleased. The rooms are well equipped, comfy and clean and the staff go out of their way to be helpful. They even provide free snacks/beverages in the office for your enjoyment.

First off, the owners couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. Really lovely couple that went out of their way to make sure we found the room we wanted for the price (which couldn't be beat), and were comfortable. They recommended all the best places to eat and drink in town and were so helpful. The room we chose was... More
