Good location - free Wi-Fi, nice big flat screen TV in room but no dvd player, comfortable bed. Just a few things that would have made the room a little nicer such as a clock radio or even just a clock, there was a place for a closet rod but it was missing so I either used my suitcase to... More

OK, I have been going to Seaside for years, but had heard this little motel had updated their rooms and was a decent 'Vintage Motel' with clean 'throwback' rooms. I also checked other reviews and most folks indicated the motel was clean. The motel bathroom was so dirty I could not even take a shower. There was about 3 different... More

Found this place in Seaside, Or. wanted something reasonable. Older buildings, clean, close to the beach and downtown. We just parked the car and walked most everywhere. Thought we might have a problem with noise being across from the pool, but the pool closes at 10p and it was quiet after that. If you want something cheaper than most of... More

My wife and I just had our 10 year anniversary last weekend...and we stayed in our favorite "home" away from home, which was the City Center Motel. :) We adore Lacie, Carmen and their staff of exceptional people. We love staying here, it's cozy and very friendly and inviting. You can relax and be yourself, enjoy your time and they... More

We arrived in town kind of late and everything was pretty much booked and way overpriced. I walked into the lobby knowing that nothing was available. Was I surprised when the desk clerk offered a two bedroom suite with full kitchen for $90 bucks. Folks, this place is a block off the beach, away from the noise, and way under... More

I spent very little time there as the purpose of my visit was to see friends who lived near by. The room was good, clean, comfortable bed, wifi, Tv, fridge and microwave. Nice morning walks along the beach which is close by.

To start there was a over powering chemical smell coming from the room, we had to air it out for a hour before we could even spend any time in it. We asked for a queen bed and got a double. Even measured to check, because my wife and I couldn't fit comfortably, when we have a queen at home.... More

Very nice lady at front desk helped us book a room at the last minute when our camping plans were derailed due to rain. When we asked to change rooms due to a rowdy group of teenagers next door she was very accommodating.

Clean - recently updated - roomy. Very close to the mall - staff were extremely helpful and courteous - they upgraded my sister's room because it wasn't ready upon checkin. The location was why we chose the place but I would definitely stay again. The price was a real bargain.

My only complaint is that you could hear a lot of noise from the other rooms but thats hard to avoid when staying at a motel. Room and bathroom where clean, the bed was pretty comfy. Overall a nice place to stay.
