This place is beyond terrible. The management alone would make you want to rent a room anywhere else but here! The management is extremely rude, lazy and just flat out ignorant. Please don't ever stay here if you know what's good for you.

Shouldve trusted the negative reviews. Positives: Friendly staff, relatively close to the north end of the boardwalk (about 2 blocks west), 50/50 pool, relatively small so the underage party warzone atmosphere of places like Glendale was absent. Negatives: Small TVs(missing remote), coffin sized bathrooms in very poor condition, hot water was difficult(next to impossible) to get running, beds in poor... More

I had trouble trying to find a good hotel in Seaside. The manager and his wife were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. This is a budget motel so you do get what you pay for, we didn't expect much. Had no problems with bed bugs etc everything was fine for our stay.

When we got there to check in the manager was sleeping on a couch. Our first room was gross. There was a half eaten piece of bread in the microwave. The room he gave us for 5 people wasn't big enough so we actually paid an extra $50 for the 3 double bed room. When we got in there it... More
