We went to Seaside to see a favorite band & spent the night. We booked thru Booking.com a king bed room. Shortly after booking, the hotel called to say they didnt have a king room & replaced us w/a room w/2 full beds. We were told we could "upgrade to a suite for a liitle more $$" but we declined as we were only staying one night & dudnt plan to do anything but sleep & shower at the room. We arrived early & spent day at the beach, planning to checkin at 3 to shower & relax before dinner & the show. Upon arrival at the 3 pm checkin time, we found no one around & a sign saying "checking in call this number." the guy said, " I can't get there till 5 pm, let me call the owners wife & I'll call you back" so we get call back that someone would arrive to check us in in about 20 min. We only waited about 10 min & got an apologetic lady who was anxious to make up for our wait. For the price this isn't a bad hotel. It was clean & convenient with a small indoor pool, cluttered excersize room, & a nice rooftop (4th floor) deck. Although for the advertised $99 rate we did want & expect a king bed. My husband & I each slept in separate beds as a result. We never saw another guest & we were back & forth several times between 3 & 9 pm. I believe the king rooms were available, but not at the rate published at Booking.com. Also, we were told the Mexican restaurant on the first floor was open for breakfast but at 9:30 am the place was closed, so we checked out & found breakfast on our way home. Another convenience was the indoor secure free parking. Although its small & first come first serve & during the busier summer I'd expect you may not get a spot sometimes. Small frige in the small room, no coffee pot so my husband had to drive several blocks to find a dunkin donuts open at 8 am for coffee. We lucked out & got 80 degree gorgeous weather, but this town obviously shuts down for the season!
