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

This will be our go to place for weekend getaways to Astoria. Great pet friendly accommodations. Rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable with a fun retro decor. Managers are friendly and really helpful.

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 :)

This motel, I am told was recently known as The Lamplighter. It now has been totally renovated. This includes furniture, bed, and wall decor. It is now decorated in a wonderful 1960's theme. My first treat was to see Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, two wonderful full size cutouts in the the lobby. While I was in the lobby having... More

Stopped for the night in Astoria last week and usually target a motel reasonably inexpensive but not the cheapest. I am OK with older properties if well kept and can excuse some issues. The Atomic seems to have been rehabbed a bit and repainted. I informed staff that a couple of the drains were backed up as most folks probably... More

The hotel is right off of 101 near the bridge. It's on a busy street, so expect some level of noise. It's named the Atomic, but they have a sign to alert you that it was previously the Lamplighter. The hotel is freshly painted in mid century modern style, and the stylish and fun lobby follows the same style. There's... More
