Don't let the rating scare you. It is an old motel but our room was clean and very comfortable. Staff was friendly and the WiFi worked great. Room got warm but you can ask for a fan. The view from the room was breathtaking! Located off the promenade with great restaurants and shops. Great value!

Very affordable and located right on the beach with a room facing the ocean. Microwaves, refrigerators and coffee makers are included in the room. Family operated for more than 30 years. Easy walk to area restaurants and shops. Located along the historic promenade.

The website for this motel is so misleading! It is on the beach but it is horrible! The room is so outdated. It seems dirty...saw a spot of blood on the bedspread! My sister and I found a tick in the room! We were afraid to go to sleep. Highly overpriced...very poor quality...ugh...

2 queen room, kitchenette ocean view. Rooms were of a 70s design - well worn but clean. The large window was a great spot to enjoy the unobstructed ocean view at all hours/weather. The room could have slept 4. 1 room is at the front, the other faces the parking lot at the back. At times it was hard to... More

This is a much older motel that could really, really use some upgrading. You absolutely cannot beat the view and you are in center of the boardwalk, but! The place is the most basic of basic. Beds - that need replacing, a TV - that needs mounting on the wall, because you cannot see it from the 2nd bed and... More

The room is very clean, is a great location, great ocean view from the window. Is very basic, cheap, clean and a good place to spend the night without all the frills. Could use some updated beds. The staff is very friendly and I had a good stay. Had excellent wifi signal, I had read some reviews where travelers were... More

I will start with a positive. This hotel is in a great location on the beach. By far, it was the lowest priced hotel I've stayed in at Seaside. However, if you can afford to stay somewhere else, do yourself a favor and book a different hotel. We booked a double queen room with a kitchenette back in January. We... More

This is an older motel, but quaint and really right on the beach, just down from the Prom and within easy walking distance of the ocean and all the cute downtown shops and restaurants! The beds are a little hard, but the room was clean, linens were older but clean and we had a 2bedroom suite for a really great... More

Arrived on 10th July 2015, and we had two rooms booked. The first room smelled real musty, the fridge was rusty & the whole place has not been painted or updated since the 1970's My 10 year old daughter was horrified & begged us to leave but we had already paid the $400 so we stayed. Our room was no... More

It is an older motel but a nice one. It adjoins the Promenade and the beach is on the other side. Our room was clean and we had everything we needed. As with all the beach hotels, don't expect the Promenade to quiet down much before midnight on weekends and in the heat of the summer. The price was right,... More
