“WEEK END GETAWAY”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We try to get to the coast each spring and we love to stay at the Lanai when we can. We have been coming for over ten years and have stayed in many of the units. This trip we stayed in unit 26, a ground floor unit. The bed was comfortable and the television was a very new large flat screen. We stayed the nights of May 3, 4 & 5 and, although the place was full, we never had any trouble parking. The view is awesome and you cannot beat the price!

We stayed here May 3rd and 4th in unit 20. When we first tried to book online it showed no units available for 4 people. But I decided to call and it turned out they had one that they admitted needed some slight cosmetic updating. We aren't picky about these kinds of things so that was fine with us. The management was super nice and gave us a great price on the unit. Our unit was poolside but were pleasantly surprised at the fact that we had a peak-a-boo view out the bedroom window of the ocean. We enjoyed opening the window and listening to the surf. The location of this place is nice and secluded...at the end of the beach. We felt like we had our own private section of beach to play at. We only had two minor complaints. 1. The pool was closed until June and we didn't know this upon booking. We wish it had been mentioned. Our kids were sad not to swim in the pool. 2. The kitchenette was too small for us to cook in. We ended up taking all our groceries home with us and just eating out. Regardless, for the price...you can't beat a location like this. It would be a perfect romantic getaway for a couple. Someday I hope to come back and get an Oceanside view room.

Room Tip: Kitchenettes are very small. It's probably just fine for heating a pizza or reheating left over...

This place had the most value of all the places I looked at in Seaside. We were closer to the ocean front than any other place. Nicely furnished unit, comfortable and with a very well equiped kitchenette. A great beach just steps away. Close to beautiful Cannon Beach, Tillamook Cheese factory and of course all the fun in downtown Seaside. Did I say the view was to die for? A very friendly, helpful staff topped it off. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat and can't wait to go back! We stayed in unit 47 May 4,5 & 6.

My husband and I along with our 2 kids come to Seaside every spring. The Lanai at the Cove is our favorite place to stay. Mostly because it's soooo close to the ocean and the staff is soooo friendly.
We have only stayed in unit 28 because it was the only one available both times we booked. I would like to try a few of the other units though. As others have stated, each unit is individually owned and therefore the décor and furnishings are all different. (I peeked in all the 1st floor units as they were all empty when we arrived.) We like to stay on the ocean side-ground floor so you have super easy beach access right from your back porch. Otherwise you have a short walk around the building.
We really like the extra counter space in unit 28, but would be ecstatic if a new hide-a-bed were on the to-do list ;) It's a little lumpy.
We love that there are deals in the off season, but gladly pay the very reasonable price for summer-time stays too.

We stayed in room 38 on the night of April 28. We loved watching the surfers in the afternoon and waking up to clam diggers in the morning. We were able to leave the sliding door cracked open since we were on the 2nd floor so that we could listen to the ocean all night. It was amazing.

We stayed for 3 days & nights in Unit 45 (4/30-5/2) and a great time! We saw 3 deer on our 2nd night. The staff & unit were delightful. The views of the ocean and the sound of the waves were incredible. It's a very relaxing place especially with the rhythm of the waves in the background. Its location is hard to beat, close to everything yet just far enough away for privacy. We feel the Lanai is our return destination for Seaside.

My wife and I spent April 18, 19, and 20 in room 37. We found the room to be clean and comfortable. The view of course was awesome. The people at the front desk acted as though they were really glad we were guests. The maids were also very courteous . I always judge a motel by answering the question "Would you go back again?" We made reservations for three more stays in the next year! Your figure it out.

Room Tip: We got to look at 32, 33, 35, and 37 and all were delightful.
