Check your bed linens and pillow cases...hair found on both upon arriving as if nothing was laundered. Gross! The carpets are filthy and obviously need to be deep steam cleaned. Even though this is a cheaper motel, it should still at least be clean.

This is a great location for a budget motel. You can catch the street car right behind it and the bicycle path is adjacent to the tracks. In addition to that the Bridgewater Bistro which was rated # 2 for restaurants by TripAdvisor at the time I went is also located behind the building. I went to Astoria to explore... More

Summer motel rates in Astoria are high, but this motel, now a Motel 6, was a good rate for the area. We had a comfortable 2 Q bed room for 3 people. The location was convenient: a short walk to a couple good places for breakfast, and the river walk and trolley line were even closer. The front desk staff... More

This location is now a motel 6. We stayed in a two queen bed room. Room was average size and bathroom was small. Room seemed clean; however tub/shower in bathroom had some staining in corners😝. They do not have a continental breakfast. With no breakfast price seemed a little high for motel 6. Maybe that is average price for the... More

This was the only pet-friendly motel in Astoria that had any vacancy on a summer weekend with only 4 days' notice. It turned out to be a good basic motel with clean comfortable rooms and reasonable rates (for Astoria), though the bed was a bit on the hard side. Though the shining part was the staff. In the next room... More

Strictly budget motel. Staff tries hard but the age of the motel shows. Surprisingly, it is quite inside the rooms, inspite of it being right below the bridge and on Hwy. Fruit and pastries for breakfast in the check-in lobby. Housekeeping staff is pleasant, works hard and fulfils requests for additional pillows/sheets with a smile. It is good value for... More

I am rating this hotel with five stars because I have zero complaints. Our room was spacious, and the t.v was a surprisingly large size. The view was excellent. We stayed here for a week. Our room was cleaned every day. The staff was very friendly. We did not experience any problems. I feel the hotel price was very reasonable... More

Got to my room in the back of the hotel the tube TV took 9mins to start, secondly my towels had someone's orange Cheeto marks on the towels, the plastic cups weren't in plastic sleeves and looked dirty, smelt like someone smoked, front closes at 10 so had to wait for morning to call they said all new clean stuff...

Stayed at the Dunes Motel for 3 nights. The rooms were decent, walls were scuffed and dirty, other then that they were clean and quiet. They have pastries, juice and coffee in their office for breakfast but they were not restocked the second day of our stay. I would stay here again for a short trip or try one of... More

We have stayed here before and like it for what it is. We choose the river/bridge view rooms when we stay. The room is clean and tidy. There were a few mechanical issues this time and I addressed them at check out. We enjoy Astoria and will return, sooner rather than later I hope.
