I really, really wanted to like this funky little hotel, but it fell short in a few important areas.
The hotel certainly has it's charms. It's an old, historic-feeling building, with some nice modern amenities. The location is convenient to the riverfront, trolley, and area restaurants.
However, for the price we paid (for our top-floor room with a private bath), it didn't measure up to other places we stayed on our trip. Service was just "OK" (the desk attendant didn't really have any recommendations for places to eat or have a drink nearby). The noise from the streets below is constant. Luckily, the bathroom fan was loud enough to drown out all but the big trucks and Harley riders. We had a partial view of the riverfront a couple of blocks away -- partially blocked by what appears to be someone's apartment unit(?) No iron or ironing board in the room, nor was there much in the way of information about Astoria, or even about the hotel itself.
For around $100 the Commodore might warrant consideration of another stay the next time we're in Astoria. For what we paid? I'm afraid it just wasn't worth it...
