“Still good-still hard to find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We stayed a year ago and enjoyed the hotel so we decided to stay again. Because we knew the directions and which 'landmarks' to look for, we were able to find it with no trouble. i see that other reviewers were not so lucky. It is hard to believe that something can't be done to make it easier to find.

We had a king-room on a quiet mid-week night. The room was more than adequate; it was clean and quiet and the bed was very comfortable. It had an older-style TV and microwave but we didn't watch much TV and we didn't use the microwave at all so they didn't adversely affect our stay. The internet connection was quite slow (as in dial-up slow) at times. The bathroom was clean and there was lots of pressure and hot water for the shower. The toilet is low to the floor so be aware the first time you use it. Staff was courteous and friendly. Breakfast was very good with scrambled eggs, sausage, juices, yogurt, fruit, muffins, waffles etc. We did not use them but the site also has a pool and an exercise room.

All-in-all I would say that this is a good to very good BW. We would not hesitate to stay again or to recommend it to friends.

I always book a hotel with a pool due to needing to stretch my back after driving thanks to an old injury. Upon checking in I n oticed that the pool door had a sign saying it was closed. I asked the clerk about it and she said "Oh yeah. They just showed up to renovated the pool and we didn't know they were coming." I commented that it would have been nice to know about the pool ahead of time and was told that because they had no notice that they were coming to work on it (what???) that they had just the day before gotten the site noted that it was closed. As you can expect, the first thing I did when I got to my room was to check the Best Western site along with Hotels.com and Travelocity (Expedia was blocked by their firewall) and none of them said anything about the pool being closed. I just checked again tonight (5 days later) and it still is not noted. If I had known that I would have booked elsewhere. I can understand that sometimes renovations need to be done but it would be nice to be notified (they had my email address from the reservation) The clerk offered no compensation for the lack of ameneties. If I am ever in the area again I will have to think twice about staying here even though the room was quite nice.

Room Tip: The whirlpool suites on the river side are quite nice.

I would like to say that while I appreciate the fact that this guest wrote this review, I would like to make a few points clear. The hotel did have notice - albeit short notice, and therefore we were not able to put a notice on the website due to the fact that it usually takes a week or more to get things posted. Much longer for 3rd party sites such as Expedia or Priceline. It would subsequently take a week or so to have it removed from the sites -thereby putting the announcement up for much longer than necessary. The work done in the pool room would likely have been completed by the time the notice came out. I would also urge all guests who might for any reason have questions regarding issues other than basic ones to speak to management. They will certainly be more informed. And lastly when a reservation is made through a 3rd party site such as the aforementioned, they do not send the hotel guest phone numbers or email addresses. During the time that our pool was down, attempts to contact guests that were arriving that had not booked with the hotel staff directly were made a priority. If the guest that sent this review had booked the room this way there was no way to reach them.

1) They should have told us when we booked that the pool was closed for maintenance.
***Disappointing***
2) Exterior door key card entry was broken
3) Constant loud, howling wind sound thru front door of room, plus, it rattled until we stuffed a towel into it
4) Toilet too low to the ground and not securely mounted to floor
Last but not least, called front desk about mislaid wallet and was put on hold until finally hung ten minties later.
We will not be back.

I would like to say that I am sorry that our pool was closed for maintenance the morning the guest was here, but I had indicated in correspondance with them that per health department guidelines, for the safety of the guests we close the pool first thing in the morning to re-chemicalize the pool and spa. I take this very seriously and would never let the pool remain open without assurances that the chlorine and other levels are where they should be. The exterior door lock has been replaced as well. Any other issues have been addressed with the maintenance department and resolved to Best Western standards.

Thanks to our Tom Tom we were able to locate the hotel, not sure we would have found it otherwise. They had just remodeled the room to include 2 queen size beds. The room was too small for that and left little walking space. We would have preferred a table in chairs instead of the bed we didn't use. The only chair in the room was against the wall next to the TV so it couldn't be used for watching TV. There was a laundry room and a library with 1 computer, a beverage machine and a great breakfast. Staff was friendly. No restaurants nearby, It is very close to the bridge over to Washington so there is a nice view of the Columbia if you get on the north side of the building.

Room Tip: North side

We had an excellent stay at the Lincoln Inn during our Oregon coast road trip.

The staff was friendly, and we had a wonderful room on the 3rd floor of the newer side of the building. All the units on this side have a view of the Columbia River.

Our fairly spacious room had a king size bed, desk, and lots of storage space. Everything in the hotel was clean and quiet, and yet the hotel was fully booked during our stay.

We didn't use the pool, but the pool/hot tub area looked clean and well-maintained.

The free breakfast was also good. It included scrambled eggs, waffle maker, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt, juices. All the items were stocked up constantly and well presented.

We used the nice walking path just outside the hotel. It goes for a couple of miles across town. It was a 10 minute walk to our fabulous dinner at Bridgewater Bistro.

What a wonderful review, thank you. It would appear that you most definately took advantage of all that Astoria has to offer during your stay. Guest feedback is so important to us. It certainly lets the staff know that all they do is appreciated. Thank you.

Was able to secure a room here for the Annual Bridge Run. They were just bringing out fresh baked cookies when we arrived. We had seven year old twins with us and the pool, hot tub and their first experience with a sauna were all very nice. All rooms recently renovated. Friendly staff. Even extended our check out time as I wasn't sure how long it would take me to cross bridge that following morning. Nice continental breakfast gave me a good start on the run. Showered and relaxed a bit after with extended checkout. Enjoyed the stay. Would recommend this place for those staying in Astoria.

Congratulations on your participation in the run! This year the town hosted over 3,100 entrants and it was a huge sucess! Very happy to hear that the hotel was able to accommodate you and the family. Reservations do book fairly early for the run, so let us know if you want to do it again next year, and we can get you on the books for 2013!
