My husband and I came a day early as we already had reservations in Cannon Beach. I found this on trip advisor and thought it would be fun to check out, so we did. We were pleasantly surprised, we wished we had booked this first. I would have cancelled cannon beach, if it was not for the cancellation fees.
We had an ocean front room, watched surfers surf off into the sunset and listened to the sounds of waves waves. Our room was large, equipped with everything we needed from kitchette to a table for eating and a sofa to relax watch a little TV and still of coarse see the beautiful water. The hosts were wonderful, and made sure we had everything we needed. We loved this place so much when we left Cannon beach we stopped back in for one last night and our experience was just as amazing as the week before! We will be coming back again this summer.

We spent 2 nights at the cove for some much needed relaxation. We stayed in room #43 on 5/31 and 6/1. The room was great and the view of the cove can not be beat! It was so fun to wake up and watch the surfers! It is centrally located - close to downtown Seaside, Ecola State Park, and Cannon Beach. The only reason we are not giving it a "5" is because of a few housekeeping oversights. The microwave oven was filthy when we checked in and the tile floors were sticky. Aside of these minor things, the Lanai is a scenic, quiet, and restful place. This was our second visit and I'm sure there will be more....

Room Tip: Choose an oceanfront room!

Wow, this is a great place to stay. We went this weekend (june 16) and the weather was sunny with the clouds being held out to sea. Barb who is sometimes at the front desk is friendly and helpful. She called us just in the nick of time to come back and fetch our coats from the closet we didn't check. The beach view is just as good as the owner described in their pamphlet and the wildlife is fun to watch: seal lions, pelikans, gulls, and surfers (on our mini waves). Oh, and the people fishing for perch on the shoreline. We didn't see the resident eagle pairs or the deer playing on the beach, maybe next time. The other thing is that we were close to Seaside (enough to see city lights in the distance) and Canon Beach (just down the road) but just far enough away to think you are out town. I recommend this place to stay.

Room Tip: Actually there isn't a fitness center, I could not undot that selection once choosen. The top f...

We have always enjoyed and looked forward to our Seaside get-a-way. This particular trip was different. We did not originally plan to come to Seaside after the memorial we attended in Portland, so, and have always sssssssssssssssssssssssssss we did not call ;prior for a reservation and ended up with what was available.
Normally we have called ahead and asked for a particular room, and have never been disappointed. It is a wonderful place to stay and one of the few ;places you will find that gives you view of the ocean from the side - with the surf passing in front of you instead of coming AT you!
Please make sure you call ahead.

Room Tip: We found that ground floor rooms are not conducive to leaving your door open ta hear the surf at ni...

Hi Mary and thanks for staying with us at The Lanai. Good tip on calling
ahead. Especially in summer rooms can fill fast. Going to the Lanai website is a
great way to look at individual rooms and book after hours too.

In May we spend 4 days at the Lanai. Was a very relaxing week end. So many things to do! We enjoyed watching the seals and surfers! Sometimes there is deer and elk out to watch also. We missed them this trip. Most of all I enjoyed watching the waves. They turn the lights on at night and we could stay up late watching the waves. Really a oceanfront rooms. Each room has amazing view! Our room #32 was beautiful, light and clean.Each visit the rooms were clean! Friends recommend the Lanai to us in 2011.Been coming every since. The office staff are wonderful. I would recommend the Lanai to anyone, couples, family,may bring your pets also.

Room Tip: Don't think you could choose a bad room!

We had a wonderful stay at the Lanai from May 6th through May 10th. Being handicapped, the room we had accommodated my disabilities, therefore making my yearly stay such a wonderful experience. I respect the management for having accommodations such as a reclining chair for senior citizens. The cleanliness and staff were superb! We will definitely be back again and make the Lanai our yearly stop!

Room Tip: All rooms give you a comfortable experience!

This was our 4th stay at the Lanai, we always stay in unit 24, this year it was from June 2 through June 7, 2013. The view is wonderful, you are so close to the water you can almost touch it. We enjoy watching the surfers and we love sitting on the logs on the rocks nearby. The staff at the Lanai are always very nice and helpful. Unit 24 is really beautifully decorated always enjoyable with a handy little kitchen fully equipped. We found out it's for sale and seriously considered it. Seaside is a great place, we have enjoyed visiting there for 30 years and decided on this trip that we would like to move there for our retirement. The Lanai played a role in that decision by always making us feel welcome. We'll be back!

Room Tip: Unit 24 is always our choice and if it was booked when we would want to come, we would change our pl...
