Stunk like cigarette smoke, was filthy and a lot of undesirable people hanging around the area. I recommend not only not staying here as a person renting a room but also recommend staying as far away from this motel as possible.

I would never stay in this motel again. We decided to stay an extra night and without a reservation it was the only place we could find. There's a reason for that. They charged almost as much as the one we checked out of when we thought we were going home and then decided to stay.they charged $106. for one night the other one was 155 and boy what another 50 dollars will get you in seaside Oregon. There was dust that had been there in the bathroom for several months. The shower didn't work at all they had to come put in a new shower head and there was still not much water pressure. When i complained about all the dust in the room all the manager said was she hired someone new and she didn't do her job,but i told her to look at it again this dust has been here for months and there was also dirt in one of the drawers when we opened it .This place was very dirty they also charged 50 dollars cash for our dog to stay there surprising for a place that doesn't clean or done any updating. I looked in another room that was considered a suite and it was kinda of nicer but the couch in it had tears in it plus it was almost 200 dollars. So not worth it stay closer to town in seaside and get a much better deal for the price.This place is what gives some motels a bad rep. I recommend that you don"t stay here we also talked to other guest to see what there room was like an they said they wouldn't come back there again either. All i can say is keep looking you can do a lot better than this place.

Arrived in Seaside late in the day on a road trip, without reservations and some volleyball tournament going on...so we ended up at the Mariner.
There were only 3 rooms left when we pulled in - we ended up with a single kitchenette unit for $124.10. It was obvious from the beginning we were getting fleeced.
When we first entered the room, we were mostly just underwhelmed, and a bit nervous of pulling the sheets back. But after a few minutes, we realized the TV was missing! The cable box , remote and cords were there, but no TV. We called the front desk, and the front desk clerk (very nice lady by the way), was 'shocked'. She immediately phoned 'maintenance', with whom she discussed doing up an 'incident report'. Sure. Whatever - a TV showed up while we were out to dinner. By the way, our front desk clerk recommended 'Norma's', which turned out to be incredibly delicious.
A note about the smell...we noticed that it just generally smells bad east of the slough/river in all of Seaside.
After spending the evening at the beach, we decided to have showers. The bathroom seems to have been recently re-done, with one minor exception. The shower curtain is scuzzy and old, and is too short by about 4 inches. It was a walk-in shower stall, so floor became very wet after showering.
No screen in the window.
My thought when paying the ridiculously high price for the hell-hole room was, 'well at least it's a kitchenette'. We were on a camping/hotel combo trip, and had all our cooking gear in the car. Thank god. There was no coffee maker in the room. One of each utensil. One coffee cup, a couple of bowls. All dirty. Maybe some kitchen gear disappeared with the TV.
The wifi password did not work, and the front desk clerk had no helpful alternative.
If you're in a pinch in Seaside, sleep in your car.

East of Seaside beach awaits just the smallest corner of hell, rife with salmon-scented sheets, and just the tiniest pinch of shame. Welcome to the Mariner.

Our stay began with what one might consider to be a state of confusion. There were three rooms, each with just enough room for a bed, which was convenient because that's all they contained. Complimented by broken a.c., a broken television, broken windows, a sinkless bathroom, and clothes from the previous patrons, it could be safely said that we had found a "rent by the hour" land of leisure.

As the evening continued, a return from the beach required use of the shower. As the shower gingerly began to drissle luke warm water to the plastic tiles below, it could be seen that the shower curtain did not reach the floor. Instead, a cool breeze caught me by suprise and the curtain began flowing delicately in the wind, sending a draft my way that felt a lot like Christmas.

In the night, one is subject to the delightful noises of miscreant drug dealings, some of which go very wrong. And if that doesn't suit you, your neighbors will certainly keep you up with their delightful conversations about life, love, and Nascar statistics on the stoop next door. Most the renters live there, so stoop-talk is gauranteed.

The next morning, continental breakfast is a simple cup of black coffee. So if you're John Wayne or just seem to like the taste of chalk, you're on easy street.
Make sure to set your alarm early though, breakfast ends at 9.

My advice, gather your belongings and head elsewhere. Equivalent prices and sanitary rooms await you.

Depending on the room type, whether it has one bedroom or two for example, it is the weekly rate times four. Some would say it's over priced, but keep in mind, weekly housekeeping is optional, and you have no other utility... More
