The first thing to greet you upon arrival (besides the gorgeous Victorian exterior), is Carolyn, the hotel's owner. As stated in previous reviews, she's a gracious hostess and knowledgeable regarding the building's history. She makes a wonderful breakfast is an overall very hospitable and kind lady. My parents and I stayed in the Dorothy room, which would have had an... More

A beautiful Victorian built in 1888 with a very nice and interesting innkeeper. We were in the Rose Room and had a comfortable bed, a nice view of the Columbia River and slept well even as the "seal chorus" was going strong! It was our anniversary and our daughters called ahead to ask her to provide wine & cheese for... More

Yes, there is a musty smell in the entry hall. I did not notice it in our room, though. Carolyn is a gracious hostess. Breakfast was good. The room was very large. The bed was comfortable. We stayed 4 nights while visiting family, and this was a convenient and comfortable alternative to a hotel.

Beautiful front porch, very large living room and study with lots of books, the paper and historical & tourist books available for guests. Tea and homemade cookies available for guests. Breakfast in the morning was delicous starting with a fruit plate followed by quiche and... More

We stayed here at the start of our trip down the coast and were glad we chose it. Carolyn Hammer is a gracious host, and her place is well cared for and comfortable. Very historic, too. We went off season and she gave us two nights with a slight price break on the second. Her family was here, and she... More

My husband and I wound up being the only ones at the Benjamin Young for the night on New Years Day and got to enjoy the quiet peace and serenity of such a beautiful and historic old home. The holiday season is a great time to come to Astoria due to the low tourism volume. We enjoyed sitting in the... More

My son and I stayed at the Benjamin Young Inn recently. Our stay there was definitely a highlight of our trip to Astoria. The house is a very well maintained and authentic Victorian with lots of character and charm. The rooms are very bright, spacious and comfortable. The best part of the experience was the generous hospitality of Caroline, the... More

As we headed toward Astoria we looked at the B&Bs on Travel Advisor and noted this place hadn't had a review in awhile. We were referred by another B&B owner as they were fully booked and we were thrilled with this option. What a special home. The owner, Carolyn, showed us through the property. We had the Rose Room, quaint... More

I would highly recommend this B&B for a stay in Astoria. Our host, Caryolyn, was very gracious and cooked us a wonderful breakfast in the morning. The barking seals didn't wake me, but my wife heard them telling "jokes" throughout the night. For those who like to run, bike or walk, there is a path along the water accessible just... More

The place was lovely, and I loved listening to the sounds of the sea lions. But the cat smell was a little too much. Unfortunately I had dreams of cat litter boxes. All I could smell was cat. The owner is so very nice and the breakfast was amazing. If you have a cat for a pet, I am sure... More
