we have been staying at the Lanai for more than 25 years...(at least once a year, however my goal is 3 times.) I love this place and all it has to offer. No one can beat the view...the lighted night surf is a bonus. Lots of hours sitting on the private balcony watching the surfers and enjoying the peace of nature at its finest. The rooms are well stocked and very comfortable. We stayed in unit 45 this time....and like always...it was perfect. Can't wait for our next visit. The host are the nicest people you ever want to meet. Thanks again for a great week. We stayed 5 days...wanted to stay at least 5 more. See you again soon.

Room Tip: all rooms have photos posted on-line...check them out and find the perfect one for you. (although we...

I stayed at the Lanai this last weekend and it was the best trip I have had in a very long time. This place has changed since the last time I stayed here about 20 years ago. I was in room # 24 and every time I go back this is the room I will stay in. The room was decorated to my taste. The view was absolutely stunning. They have a round love seat that I had to move right in front of the glass doors and just sat there for hours watching the surfers and the beautiful weather. And they are pet friendly A++++++...Priced very well also.

Room Tip: Unit # 24 was awesome...The view was fantastic

The two of us wanted an oceanfront, pet-friendly place in Seaside to spend a few days during spring break. The Lanai had a buy-2-nights-get-one-free offer that could not be beat, and after looking at reviews on TripAdvisor I said sure. We stayed in unit #42.

Pros: Great location; away from downtown bustle, so little traffic, but still exceedingly convenient to restaurants and shopping. Pet friendly. Pleasant staff. Quiet, except for the soothing sounds of the surf 24/7. Clean, comfortable accommodations, with complete kitchenette, full-size coffee pot, queen bed, comfy couch, table and chairs, nice size balcony overlooking the ocean/beach/surf, flat screen TV with good cable selections, DVD player, ice machine & 75-cent soda machine downstairs, fluffy towels. Plenty of free parking for guests. Discount cards offered for some local restaurants. Access to a sand beach is just down the street (the beach behind the Lanai is rocky).

Cons: Each unit is individually owned and individually decorated, so this is not your cookie-cutter motel decor. Unit #42, while not unpleasant, could be called "senior citizen beach decor from the 1990s." A little frumpy (except for the couch & TV, which were obviously new). Clean and comfortable, but the decor could use a little freshening up. The management could also attempt to be more eco-friendly -- replace the bathroom amenities with refillables, and let guests re-use towels that are hung up to dry (you could even encourage it).

Biggest con: Although our unit was pet-friendly, check-in involved a full-page list of rules and regulations; the full-page had to be signed and each item on the list individually initialed; then they gave me a copy so I wouldn't forget. This is not friendly, and I wonder if the dog poop I picked up (not from our dog) is incentivized (rather than minimized) by this treatment. Or maybe they just had a lawyer consult on the dog policy. Recommendation: if you really want to give people incentives to pick up their dog poop, offer to supply bags and locate a trash can near the pet area. Being told to dispose of doggy-doo in the dumpster by the street is neither friendly nor convenient. That was another regulation.

Just FYI: Our unit was on the second floor and there is no elevator.

Room Tip: I would not stay here if I couldn't get a room on the ocean side (other rooms face the pool). W...

Hello and thank you so much for your detailed review of the Lanai. We are
dedicated to making the Lanai a great experience and really appreciate all
constructive comments. Becoming more eco-friendly was a goal we just set,
so your re-fillable soap idea and encouraging the re-use of towels are
great suggestions. The dog policy is new and you are right, needs to be
more friendly. You are obviously someone who travels a lot and see lots of
good ideas. Thank you for caring enough to share and glad you had a nice
stay. Safe travels and hope to see you again.

We stay at the Lanai about 4 times a year with family and friends. Just came back Sunday after taking our Grandkids for Springbreak week. We stayed in room #43. Very nice furniture and decor. The view was fantastic!
We have stayed in many different rooms, they are all decorated in their own unique style. There is no better view in Seaside. The managers, Barb and Cory are very friendly and accommodating. Looking forward to our next visit.

We stayed at the Lanai for 2 nights in early April. The room was perfect. Everything was clean and the staff was courteous. Our room sat on the ground floor, right on the ocean, and the bed faced out the window, so we could watch the ocean all the time. It was a wonderful weekend and we look forward to staying again! Hopefully, the next time we stay, it will be later in the year, so the pool will be open. =)

We are so glad you had a nice time at the beach. Come back anytime and the
pool is great by the way. It’s kept up very well, gets lots of sun and is
protected from the wind. See you soon we hope. Thanks for staying with us!

Great hospitality. Great view of the ocean. The price was right for off season. I like the webpage, as you can tour each unique room. We had a 4 night stay (April 3-7, 2013). We stayed in unit #26 & #31. Both nice rooms. We were lucky to get a reservation on such short notice, but staff was very accommodating. I would recommend the Lanai at the Cove to anyone. We will definitely be returning.
