The Lanai is still our favorite place to stay in Seaside, OR. Management and staff are always helpful and want you to feel welcome and special. The rooms were converted to condos in the 1970's, but the property has been updated and looks newer. The units have a small kitchen area for preparing and eating simple small meals in your... More

We were only there for one night but hope to return. The property was well appointed and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Property included a heated pool and small kitchenette. Views were unbeatable and the hotel was a short distance to the promenade. We were close enough to walk but not bothered by the traffic.

This place has a great view of the beach at a great price when compared with other options. However unit 43 where we stayed is most dated and has filthy carpets. Management gave excuses and no apologies when it was mentioned and clearly knew about the condition of the carpets. You do your own dishes or pay $25 bucks. At... More

We stayed in room #25 on 8/5/15 as a surprise birthday gift and had a great time. While the hotel is a little older than some, it was well maintained, clean and actually less expensive than some others that we looked at. The staff did all they could to make us comfortable and the ocean view from the patio directly... More

I stayed here for Independence Day, to see the fireworks along the beach. I got a seaside room, as although a little expensive, it was worth it. The hotel is peaceful and quiet - I was able to sit, with my glass sliding doors open and read a book while listening to the waves. The views from the rooms are... More

This was our second year in a row to stay at The Lanai. We love the rooms facing the waves. We stayed in room #46. We keep our window open and it lulls us to sleep. Lots of hotels in Seaside say they are ocean front but they are more of an ocean view. The Lanai is ocean front. The... More

We stayed at the Lanai room # 35 for our anniversary from 8/02/15-8/04/15. We enjoyed the character that all the rooms have, it is unique and you can't get closer to the water even if you spend twice as much like some of the places charge. Its also nice to be close to town but also feel like your away... More
