Tillamook is not exactly a bustling city--so you don't have a lot of hotel choice. That being siad, this hotel is clean, the waiting area in the lobby has a computer and internet access, comfy chairs in which to relax or read, and a video gallery. It's a bit crass to charge $2 a rental, but I suppose that way they get their videos back.
The room was nicely appointed and the beds are wonderful. Memory foam toppers on the mattresses helped my back immensely. There is coffee and though others said they got no real toiletries, our room had shampoo and conditioner as well as soap.
I found the linens to be comfy, though others have claimed that was not their experience. I also like the location, near most of the tourist areas.
There is coffee and tea located in the check in area, which is wonderful. I never got to try the cookies, which is explained below.
The only caveat I have for this hotel is the staff could use more training on professionalism. I realize Tillamook isn't exactly New York City or Las Vegas, but when my daughter and I happened down to look for snacks (which are available for purchase at the front desk, instead of in a vending machine,) we fell into the middle of a conversation between three young male guests who were yelling down to the front desk from the second floor balcony. They were asking for the front desk person to make the promised and advertised cookies, and she informed them that they are not free, and that she was waiting on her nails to dry, but that she might make them later. I would have loved one...but none were forthcoming.
Then, I came down as I was unable to sleep, thinking I would read in a comfy chair instead of keeping my entire family awake. I got to be the unwilling hearer of two staff persons discussing why this person and that person were called off for the next shift, and how many check outs there were for the next day. The tone with which they discussed the check outs made me feel that I am a lot of work for them, and made me feel that I really wished I had chosen to stay somewhere that my choice would have been appreciated.
I also got to overhear the family plight of one of the employees, who stood at the front desk relating this information to the front desk person, in explicit detail. I learned how she had bailed her father out of jail, and how she couldn't even borrow 20 dollars from a family member. Not a discussion that should be had at work, in the lobby, where customers can overhear.
Outside of that however, the actual accommodations are very nice. A bit pricey, but you don't have a lot of hotels to choose from, and if you have seen the Red Apple reviews--well, I prefer my rooms clean.
