A delightful surprise. Room was older but very clean. Great beds, kitchen. Wonderful view. Convenient for day trips. But the best thing was the staff! Wendy was right there with information, meeting needs and very friendly. DEFINITLY WOULD COME BACK!

I have stayed here many times and continue to come back. This motel has all the charms of the old school motor motels. Could use some upgrades in some rooms butvery clean and quaint and the staff were excellent! Very close and quick acess to the beach.

Love how close to the beach that we were, The pool was shallow and dirty. The floor in the bathroom had many issues, it was so soft that we were afraid to shower for fear of falling thru also the front door handle had been replaced and you could see straight thru to the outside. There were also people jumping... More

This cozy little motel is more than you think. I have never had so many staff members making sure that we had everything we needed for a great stay. Customer service is a huge thing for me and trust me when I say they ooze it. A great big shout out to Lacy and Carmen for always going above and... More

My boyfriend and I had a great trip at the City Center Motel. It is very charming, staff was so friendly, and the rooms are small but clean and modern. Oh, and it is located in the center of Seaside - perfect for walking everywhere! Best deal in Seaside.

Even though the motel was dated, and a bit small, I'm giving it 5 stars, because it was clean, and the managers were great, they gave us a good deal for two rooms for one night, otherwise we would have had a very long and tiring drive ahead of us! It is in a great location, walking distance of the... More

The hotel was conveniently located and near the beach and other shopping. The hotel was a bit out dated. The bathroom was very small. The beds were comfortable. The room was clean and the service was good. Staff was friendly. The rooms do not have air conditioning, so we brought a fan. Overall it was a nice stay.

My husband and I needed a hotel for just one night. This hotel suited us well. The rooms are small, but well maintained and clean. They had hardwood type flooring, so they did echo when you talked or watched TV. The staff at check in was very friendly and efficient. There is no beach view, but it is only a... More
