Fun mid-century modern hotel. Step back in time with us. Hang out with Dean Martin in the lobby, enjoying micro-brews and chips and salsa. Seconds away from the Astoria river walk.

We really enjoyed this quaint motel which does it's best to appear right out of a 50's television set. It is a must stop if you are visiting the northern coast. You won't regret it! It is clean and comfortable and the folks at the front desk are very friendly.
