Giovanni's Pleasant View is wonderful. In my opinion it is the best hotel Seaside has to offer. The location is perfect, being right across the street from the ocean. In addtional to a great location, the prices are great and you great a free breakfast. My family and I had a great time. The hotel was comfortable, clean, and the food was great. I have stayed on multiple occasions and this place just keeps on getting better. The new owners, who are quite professional and curtious, are willing to do anything to make your stay better. I have no idea what the person who gave that "terrible" review was referring to. I, along with many others that I have known who have stayed at Giovanni's, have never experienced any problems. We have always been more than happy with our experience. I look forward to going back each and every year.
