“Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

This motel is just a small local one with very inexpensive rates. We were in Rm. 109 and everything was clean and properly cared for. I had contact with three different people in the office during our two night stay and they were very pleasant and helpful about local sites, etc. Would definitely stay again if in Astoria. This is a basic room and not anything fancy at all but neither are the prices. The breakfast is simply Spunkelmeyer (sp?) muffins and coffee. However, there is a nice restaurant across the street and two or three within a block and the ocean walk is across the street. A waterfront trolley stop is about two blocks away. There is some traffic noise as it is on Hwy. 30 which is the main 'drag' through town. However, it seemed to be very reduced as it got into the evening and was not a problem. The walls are thin and I imagine if there was a noisy neighbor, you would certainly hear them but that was not the case during our stay. In fact, the clientele seemed to be older (probably because of the price). One way I judge a motel and especially an older one such as this is the type of vehicles in the parking lot and the huge majority during our stay were all relatively new cars.

First time staying at this motel, and it will be the last time too! No alarm clocks at all in our room to even tell us what time it is, or to wake us up when it was time to check out. Worst of all, the sheets in the bed were changed, but were bloodstained! Have nothing good to say about this motel at all!

This was our first night in the states. The town of Astoria is a bit creepy but the motel was good.

Good prices, a tiny breakfast included, bathroom and beds were good, fridge in the room.
The room was small.

The walls are paperthin, I was kept awake all night...and the manager had no sense of people skills at all. The worst hotel ever. :(

This place will tempt you because of their prices, don't give in to temptation!
We stayed here during the annual Columbia River crossing 10K run/walk event.
Right off the bat my female partners were disgusted at the brownish, stained toilet seats.

But for me the biggest drawback was the owner's complete lack of cooperation or caring for individual circumstances. They absolutely, positively wouldn't let us check out 30 minutes later on Sunday. 30 minutes! When asked why, they said it was because they had to get the room ready for the next visitor. I understand this but it was a Sunday and they weren't even close to full. We confirmed this by checking on our room a couple hours after check out and sure enough, our room hadn't been touched!!!
So after running our 10k we had to go find a state park to shower and change into fresh cloths. All this after we'd spent the entire weekend at their motel and the wouldn't let us check out 30 minutes late. In the meantime our room sat unused.
We visit Astoria 3-4 times a year and this is the last time we will spend our money here. There are other choices that I'd rather support.

Room Tip: The best rooms are at any other hotel in town.

Came out to the coast for a quick getaway. Stayed at the Rivershore and enjoyed it. Nothing to fancy. Rooms were priced right. Bedding was a little old, but your typical hotel room. Wonderful town and located right in the middle.

The room was dirty left over m-n-m's from previous guests. The bathroom was nasty urine stained toilet seat..come on take $20 and replace it. The employee knew of upcoming construction and didn't share the information or even hand out earplugs.
They were cutting the concrete and pulling metal grates along the road till 4 am then the next shift started. No sleep at all!! I had elderly people with heart problems. Employees are rude and omittion is still lying.
Don't stay here!!

Room Tip: nasty urine stained toilet seats loose and unsanitary!!
