Over the years I've stayed at this motel when it was the Thunderbird, then the Red Lion, and now the Riverwalk Inn. I'm grateful to the operators trying to keep it running. It overlooks the West Basin boat harbor with a view of boats, the river, and the Astoria-Meglar Bridge. Can't beat that for a view. Having lived in the basin on my boat many years ago, I love to remember the 'old days'. I'm sorry the adjoining restaurant(s) were closed over the years but there is no shortage of places to eat. I did not partake of the continental breakfast as I was up and out early.
That said, the room was very clean, quiet, reasonably appointed, the bed was comfortable and at around sixty bucks all up for the night it was IMHO a good value. The balcony over the marina was still closed to access for my room but I expected that from other reviews. It is my understanding that they continue to renovate.
The room had what I expect in a reasonably priced motel room and I was a happy customer. It would have been nice to have the balcony windows washed on the outside so I could see the basin better. The heat adjustment knob on the thermostat for the baseboard heat was broken but I simply adjusted the heat by utilizing the stem as it was easy. I reported that to the office and expect it to be fixed by now.
