“Basic but Clean Room - our Check-in Service was Outstanding”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We were driving up the Oregon Coast and made the mistake of thinking we didn't need to make reservations at this time of year (November). We figured we'd stop when we got tired. Well, we stopped in Manzanita but they were totally booked - we tried several places. We then got back on the road and ended up in Seaside. Again, we struck out with 3 places but then saw a vacancy sign at the Holiday Inn Express. Neither of us found the thought of staying here appealing but decided that we did not want to drive any further and as long as we had a clean room and a safe parking spot we'd be fine. Upon checking in, my boyfriend told the gentleman at the reception counter that we were driving a very nice car he just bought and asked if it would be safe in their parking lot. This employee ended up having someone move their car from a front spot so we could put the car there. He also ran and got us a menu from one of the local restaurants in case we wanted to order take out food. We felt very well taken care of and that goes a long way. The hotel was pretty basic as was the complimentary breakfast but they get 4 stars for the customer service. Oh, and we found out there was a marriage retreat going on in Seaside which is why all the hotels were booked!

I've passed by this hotel every time I've stayed in Seaside and have chosen to stay elsewhere. I decided to try something new on this trip. Wow...what a nice surprise. An exceptional value: nice, modern, clean and great location (just two blocks to the heart of town). A great breakfast, too. Sorry that I ignored you, Holiday Inn - I'll be back.

This hotel provided a very friendly staff, great proximity to downtown/boardwalk, with a better than expected morning continental breakfast. I was expecting to have traditional continental breakfast fare (cold cereals etc.) but there were omlettes, biscuits, sausage, and much more which was a pleasant surprise and saved us a breakfast trip to a restaurant. The price was exceptional for the location and inclusions. I would recommend this hotel to my friends!

We stayed here for two nights. Our room was great, until we got into bed. After thirty minutes of lying in bed watching tv, my wife was bitten eight times by some bug. We called the front desk and they quickly apologized and upgraded us to another room. They were very apologetic. Other than bed bugs, we really enjoyed the staff, accommodations, and the breakfast. The reason why we stayed here is we were attending a marriage retreat. They used the conference room for the retreat. Nice room. A little on the stuffy side when 40 people are in it. This was our second time here. Overall, we like it and we would come back again.

We stayed here as a quick getaway from our busy work schedule. Joehmal and David checked us in and were so gracious. Hotel was clean and comfortable. We went to Moody's next door, the food was amazing, Joehmal also works there so the service was great! You can tell the staff takes pride in their jobs and where they work.

The Holiday Inn Express in Seaside was a great choice for our extended family. Just a couple blocks walk to the beach, the hotel has a more "in the city" feel than a beach hotel. The rooms were huge, clean and well furnished. The bathrooms were spacious too. We enjoyed our city/mountain view suite. It was very quiet and everything was in good working order. We could not have asked for anything more.
