This hotel is located on the east side of downtown so you will have to drive to most restaurants and attractions. But it is next to an excellent Safeway grocery store and the cheapest gas in Astoria. There is a trolley stop right behind the hotel (operates Noon to 6pm) so you have an alternative to driving. The rooms on the river side have a great view (if you are up high enough) but be prepared for the sea lions that bark 24/7. We put our room fan on low at night and there was enough white noise to drown out the sound. Our room was very clean and the beds comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful and recommended an excellent Mexican restaurant. Coffee and cookies were free in the lobby.
I wanted to rate this hotel higher than average because they were trying very hard, but missed the mark in a few cases. The sink area was outside the bathroom, which we actually prefer, but the switch to operate the light was by the entry door and not very convenient. They have a guest laundry but did not have any soap to buy (we had to go to Safeway to buy laundry soap) and there was no folding table or place to put your clean clothes. The free breakfast included a good selection but the setup was inconvenient. We needed an 'accessible' shower which was very large with grab bars all over the place (my husband loved it) but there was only one small shelf just big enough to hold one bar of soap. We had to put the rest of our toiletries on the seat.
We booked well in advance and got a very good rate. Despite the shortcomings, we probably would stay here again.
