The Atomic is a great place that has a unique vibe. It's a basic road side, old school motel. I stayed in room 206 and found a really clean and comfortable room. Wi-fi worked great. Bed was sleep inducing with good pillows. Shower had good pressure and plenty of hot water. Windows can be opened, always a good thing, but... More

We stayed just one night in Astoria and enjoyed our visit to the Atomic Motel. The rooms were retro themed, quirky and cute! The manager/owner was extremely helpful on places not to miss and where the best food could be found! Pigs 'n Pancakes is right next door and a bargain for breakfast but the motel offered a continental type... More

We were greeted very warmly upon entering the hotel. The woman at the desk took the time to offer lots of helpful advice about the town, and showed us how to get everywhere on the map. They even have bikes to use which you can ride along the waterfront area. The decor of the hotel is very colorful, clean, and... More

Really liked the place, cozy feel, comfortable bed, no frills but everything you need in a motel room. WiFi was good and they had decent TV options. Price may seem steep but that's just the local market.

Great location on Marine Drive just east of the majestic bridge over the Columbia River. Next door to Visitor Center, Pig 'n Pancake, and the live theatre. Watch ships & the vibrant fishing community from The River Walk across the street. We were able to walk to more than half of the best attractions in Astoria; The Atomic Hotel just... More

Awesome motel with the loveliest staff. Clam chowder and breaky were great. Bikes to take out on the boardwalk were an amazing bonus. Good location close to the bridge and Downtown. Rooms very decent with a recent paint job. Will definitely stop by again when in Oregon!!

It was suitable for a one night stay. It has the basic amenities and even some added touch. Bed was comfortable, pillows plush, microwave and refrigerator in the room. Clam Chowder was available, in the lobby, while we were checking in. Continental breakfast available in the morning. Parking is really tight. I worried if I left, would I be able... More

Being a local gal in Astoria, I can't tell you how fun and exciting it is, to watch the former Lamplighter turn into the cool hip Atomic Motel. The quaint 50's decor takes you back in time with Mr. Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin ( cut outs) there to greet you! I love how friendly, caring, and welcoming the new... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in mid- July. Funky 50s decor. Some updates appear to be still in progress. Close to the shoreline. Surprising and delicious free breakfast pastries available in the morning! Decent for the price :)
