“Another great spot on the Oregon Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2009

As usual I have to have a good pool, and this place delivers. I love the people here, very accommodating and friendly. One of my family's favorites here. We love this area (we use this as a base for Cannon Beach, too) and visit quite a bit. It now is under new management for a while and it seems to show. Hope they keep up the great work.

The hotel looks great from the outside and the lobby. The rooms need some work, however. The screen on the door was broken and looked ridiculous, the toilet ran all the time, and the carpets were pretty beat up. The beds were super comfy and everyone was really nice.

SOME POSITIVES:
The exterior and interior of this hotel look new and attractive -- typical of most Holiday Inn Express facilities I've been to. Rooms are clean. We stayed in a suite (basically just two hotel rooms with an adjoining door) which included a small fridge and coffee maker -- nice touch.

The hotel is about 3-4 blocks from the ocean, so you won't see the surf and will have to walk a bit. The price was right, so it didn't matter to us.

SOME NEGATIVES:
Was disappointed with this one for several reasons. Normally, I'd let any of these things slide, but when added together, it was a let down.

There's only one luggage cart for the entire hotel, which meant that it wasn't available when needed. Because we were traveling with six people, we had a ton of stuff to lug. Half our group were kids who weren't able to help carry things.

The pool temperature was great. Hot tub temp was fine, but the jets in it didn't work. The bathroom at the pool was littered with soggy toilet paper for two days and still wasn't clean when we checked out. Gross.

The weight machine in the exercise room had a severed cable, so it didn't work. I look forward to working out while on vacation, so that was a bummer. There was a water cooler in the room, but the jug was empty. Mirrors were dirty.

The first floor hallway had a nasty smell as if it was musty/moldy.

This last comment is not particular to this hotel, but in general Holiday Inn Express hotels have nasty coffee. Plan to bring your own to brew in your room.

Chose this hotel due to great rates I found while comparing to other area hotels - I'd stayed at Holiday Inn Expresses in the past and found them very nice properties. This hotel in particular is right on the river, and our room overlooked this river and the accompanying boardwalk. It is approximately 1.5 blocks from Broadway St (the 'main drag' of shops/restaurants/etc) and about 6 (?) blocks from the ocean .. great location!! The breakfast was so-so .. characteristic Holiday Inn warm cinnamon rolls are good.. had cereal, yogurt.. bread/bagels/etc; but no fruit and not-so-good coffee :(

Nice hot tub.. HOT hot tub.. and pool area quite nice. Sauna present but wasn't on while we were visiting.

The staff was very helpful, allowing us an hour late checkout even on a busy Friday morning.. would definitely return if in the area. Also, cajun/creole restaurant across the parking lot has great food, live music, and offers a 10% discount if you show your hotel room card.

A new chain hotel's opened up your options on the Oregon Coast. We stayed at the beautiful new Holiday Inn Express about three blocks from the beach in Saside and were thrilled to discover it also has new sisters in Astoria and Newport. Nice lobby, terrific FREE hot breakfast, and the largest rooms we've encountered anywhere in the world lately. Bathrooms have the toilets placed right in front of the door, but that's about the only fault. All rooms have microwave and fridge to add to the convenience, and our balcony room overlooked the river. What a treat! (And the senior price was less than much older, staid lodgings around.) A definite thumbs-up to Holiday Inn Express for constantly improving its brand!

We have stayed here many times and we love it! Last time we got a King Suite and it was awesome! There was a huge jacuzzi tub in the bathroom with shutters that open to the living room. The kids loved it! They slept on the sofa bed and watched a movie while my husband and I got enjoyed some privacy in the king bedroom;) The continental breakfast is great, but I suggest going down early if you can. It is not on the beach, but it is right next to the main strip in Seaside, and is in walking distance of the arcade, candy shops, restaurants, and the beach. The only complaint I've ever had here was that the swimming pool is too cold; I'd rather spend my time in the hot tub, but I have to go in the pool when my kids are swimming and it's cold. Other than that, this place is great and we always have a good time when we go.

We stayed here for two nights recently and had a very good experience. The room was clean and comfortable and the hotel is well located, close to a main tourist street, lots of restaurants and the beach. Breakfast was fine. We didn't use any of the other facilities. The Front Desk people were very friendly and helpful.
