Great ocean views, very neat and tidy rooms, very nice complex and a great heated outdoor pool! It is close to downtown but just far enough away for a restfull retreat. Nice little kitchen area for morning toast and coffee on the lanai.

Room Tip: get the ocean view rooms, well worth it

Traveling through Oregon concluded and was complemented by our stay at Lanai - what a comfortable place! Check-in was great, rooms were clean and views were unbeatable! Management was extremely helpful with requests and information regarding Seaside. Really enjoyed the walks on the beach in the morning to discover what the tides had brought in throughout the night, and the heated pool!!

stayed there one night over the weekend. nice location if you're looking for an out of the way place to stay. heated pool was nice. managers were very friendly. it was fun to watch the surfers right off the patio. but the room itself..... for over $175 a night expected better. it was musty so had to keep the patio door open all night for fresh air. i suppose the kitchenette might be useful, but it's not really setup for anything more than a very modest meal. the beach is a slight walk up the road since it's rocky right in front of the hotel.

Sorry to hear your room smelled “musty”. We are working hard at the Lanai
to bring the quality of all the rooms up to an excellent level. Hopefully
you informed the onsite manager about the situation so it could be
addressed. Thank you for letting us know how we can do better.

We choice Lanai at the Cove because we wanted to avoid the traffic/humanity snarl of Seaside's Promenade area. Smart us! The view from the ocean side rooms is spectacular! Our room included a queen bed and sofa bed, with a fully equipped kitchenette and bathroom. The room was clean and quiet, except for the very welcome sound of the waves on the rocks. It is adjacent to a rocky beach area, but if one craves sand, plenty can be found less than half a mile down Sunset Blvd. They also have a pool, which we might try next time.

The owners were eager to please and took care of everything we needed. There were a few rules to follow, but they exist for the comfort and privacy of the guests and were reasonable.

The next time we visit Seaside, three guesses where we will be staying.

Room Tip: Pick a room on the ocean side and third floor. It's a can't-miss!

Decent sized studio rooms and friendly management. The beach directly outside of the room is all rocks; sand is about a 1/4 mile down. Although we liked Lanai, we didn't care for the local town of Seaside. It was a bit run-down, a bit on the seedy side.

Lanai at the Cove is always a great experience! I am always impressed with the courteousness of the management. The rooms are inexpensive and are quite cute. I love that they are located outside of the busy part of Seaside, so I can actually hear the ocean and enjoy the scenery. I enjoyed watching the surfers and am glad to have introduced another person to this great place. I cannot wait to come back!

I guess people who stay in Seaside have really low expectations. I read many good reviews for this place and I can't believe how wrong they are. All I expect is a clean room that doesn't smell and a convenient location. I got none of those things for over $100 a night. The room smelled like cat pee, had a window looking out to the hallway, and a poolside view but we were told to "keep the curtain closed for the privacy of the swimmers." The lamp was broken, there were stains on the bedding and walls, and mold in the bathroom. As for location in Seaside...you can't get any further away from the beach or boardwalk. We had to walk nearly a mile with no streetlights or sidewalk to even find the sand and boardwalk. There is no accessible beach here. Save your money and find something better!

Room Tip: Find a different hotel!

We very sorry your stay did not meet your expectations or ours. The
condition of the room was an unfortunate and temporary lack of quality
control on one particular unit. Sometimes guests walk by poolside units on
the way to go swimming but our desire for privacy is for the guests in the
rooms, not the swimmers. Most people find the location of the Lanai it’s
greatest asset. It’s a perfect distance from the noise and crowds, closer
to the ocean than any other property and has the best views in Seaside.
White sand beach starts 2 blocks North and goes all the way to Gearhardt.
