This is an affordable motel with lots of refurbishments going on. There are new owners and the views from the bluff are to die for. About 1 mile East of town at the top of the hill. An older property. You come here for the views of Astoria and quiet. GREAT value.

My husband and I stayed one night in the Astoria Crest Motel. We were delighted with the view of the Columbia River - it is awesome. This is an older hotel but our room was very clean and had everything we needed for a good night's stay. The beds were comfortable and there was a refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom... More

We have stayed here before and had a room with the view of the water and the room was super. However, this time we traveled with a pet and the room was not good. Very disappointing, you pay extra for a pet but get a crummier room. Throwback to the fifties. No hair dryer, no air conditioning, road noise, sleeping... More

I always stay here (12 years) and I have to admit the place was getting shop worn. However, the owners have painted, put in new furniture, upgraded the room security, and place is much nicer. The motel is still the best buy in Astoria. THe location's view is truely beautiful - Columbia River meets the sea.

We stayed here over 30 years ago on a couples weekend and loved the location. The Hotel aged and we did not go back, until I saw it had new owners who were refurbishing the place, so we went back for another couples weekend. They are obviously working on bringing the place back, but it is not yet there. Fixtures... More

The room itself is good, bathroom also, the frontdoor could not be closed properly - felt unsafe. Breakfast can be skipped, coffee and tea blehhh, croissants tasted like plastic. The location is great. The owners should do something to make things better.

Thank you for your comment about the property needing a face lift. You are correct which is why we are starting a major rennovation begining in October, 2014. We are replacing the guest room locks with state of the art RFID technology and hardware, we are totally rennovating the lobby and upgrading 32 of the guest rooms (painting furnishings and... More

I read all the reviews and since there were new owners and LOW prices with pets I thought I'd give it a try. Great welcome at the desk, beautiful view and close to Safeway. A microwave and fridge saved us another dinner out. Huge king room nicely appointed, strong wifi, comfy bed. There's a nice patio area and apparently the... More

We were so fortunate to happen to stay here during their regatta festival weekend! We had room 11 and had a wonderful view of the water. We also got to see the fireworks that night from the shared patio that is just outside each ground floor! The place has yesteryear charm just the way we like it. The shore is... More

Amazing view you'd expect from a jillion-dollar-a-night resort. Clean, comfortable, no frills, no ills. We seemed to be the only ones there on a mid-week, high season night, making it even nicer. Took a horseback ride on the beach the next day; recommend that, as well.

My boyfriend, his parent's and I were traveling thru Astoria the other night. We stayed at the Crest and it was the best place we've stayed at so far. The view is spectacular, the price is right, and I especially loved visiting with the laundry girl and the front desk guy.
