“Caution. Ask for actual pictures of rooms before booking”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Room 115 is filthy, smells of pet urine (that cannot be covered up by strong smelling cleaners), worn out, dirty, foul smelling furniture, goldfish crackers and dirt in the a/c unit, wall and ceiling damage in the bathroom, steady dripping sound in the walls when he room above runs their water, scuffed up toilet seat, double vanity in the sitting area. All old, worn and dirty. All this for $300 per night. The following day we were treated to perhaps the unhealthiest display of serve yourself breakfast that we've ever experienced. A great contrast to the Comfort Inn where we stayed the second night. There we had a clean room, clean furniture and a decent breakfast in he morning. Very polite staff at the second hotel.

Completely ripped off and the staff are well trained to say " the owner isn't here so there's nothing I can do" . I have pictures of all the issues I mentioned... There were more issues but I don't have pictures to support those issues so won't bother addressing them here. They all know its a terrible room, yet they continue to sell it.

Room Tip: Don't stay in room 115. Don't rely on their website for a good representation of the hotel.

Room 115 our popular two bedroom suite. Actual pictures of our studios and suites are shown on our website and all other online websites. The room is very popular to our valued guests. Many guests request this room annually. Based on our valued 577 reviews in Trip advisor we are well known hotel for our guest satisfaction and cleanliness. All our rooms are inspected prior to guest check- in to ensure room quality and cleanliness. Our hotel has higher rank in guest satisfaction than mentioned in this review.
We serve deluxe continental breakfast that includes fruit juices, milk, cereals, bagles, breads, hardboiled egg, and muffin. Sorry to hear that the suite, breakfast and other amenities did not meet your expectations.
We continuously improve our hotels and rooms. We have many current and past testimonials (reviews) from different online sites from our valued guests. We continue train our guest service department to provide the excellent service to our guest.
Again, we are sorry that we were not able to meet your request for offering a free night stay during your stay. Thanks you.

We went on a cruise in June to Alaska and drove from Los Angeles. On our way home we stopped in Seaside for lunch. When we came out I had a flat tire so we had to spend the night. We chose the Inn at Seaside based on what was available through Expedia. The woman at the desk was great and was kind and professional and went above and beyond what was expected. They had popcorn and movies and salt water taffy. There were so many personal touches and the service really made it worth every cent. It was within walking distance of the arcade and beach. My entire family enjoyed our unexpected stop here!

We just returned from a three night stay and had a great time. The staff is wonderful and so very helpful. We were there with our 16 year old son and our 18 month old dog. When we arrived there were delicious cookies and salt water taffy for us to enjoy while we registered. Our dog had a welcome basket for him with a towel to use, sheet to cover bed dog treats and a bowl to use for water. They had about 600 movies free to borrow and every evening they had free popcorn from 6 to 8 pm. There was a safe in our room big enough to store camera, iPad, etc. The staff is so trustworthy we left one day with our money, passports camera and other electronics in an unlocked safe by accident and everything was there when we returned. I would definitely return to stay at the Inn at Seaside. It is very central to everything in town, we walked everywhere and the beach is dog friendly.

Room Tip: I originally booked through a web based travel site but I got a much better rate calling directly to...

Front desk staff were very welcoming. They are very good with kids and pets. We were invited to enjoy the freshly baked cookies upon our check-in. Free popcorn and movie rental for guests is awesome. Good food and the beach are all nearby. It is by far the best motel where it feels like home.

We will return to Seaside only if we can stay at Inn at Seaside again next time.

With a large family, we enjoyed our stay once again! The room was huge, we loved the 2 bathrooms, full kitchen, swimming pool, and the staff was friendly and helpful! This is the only place we stay when we come to the ocean! The only complaint is the breakfast area. It gets really crowded in the morning, but there is a nice variety of breakfast food! Thanks for a another great visit!

We enjoyed our stay here. The price is reasonable. Our bathroom was a little small and the breakfast room is too small. Other than that, we would recommend this place.

The place is about 2 blocks from the beach which is really only a 3-4 minute walk. It is 1 block from the boardwalk, where most of the restaurants.

The staff are very helpful and friendly.

We enjoyed our stay. The hotel was clean. We loved the cookies and popcorn in the evening. If not for the young guy in the front office I would give our stay a 5. We found him to be abrupt and rude, even to other guests. The location of the hotel was a quick walk to the beach and restaurants. Thank you to all of the polite front desk employes. Kristyna
