We had a group of approximately 25 people attending a reunion at this hotel. The hotel was not only in excellent condition, but the staff was amazing. We were welcomed warmly. The front desk was able to direct us to good restaurants. They made sure we were able to have a group gathering in their meeting room when the breakfast room was unavailable. They gave us favorable group rates. While all personnel we encountered were friendly and helpful, my hat is off to Joe who was more than helpful.

Clean, well appointed rooms, great location, friendly and very helpful staff--especially desk clerk Joe. Always ready to assist in any way and our group was very happy with our stay! It was a military reunion of about 20 people and we all had a great time there.

This hotel is about 3 blocks from the beach at Seaside, and is about a 1/2 block from the main street with the restaurants, shops, etc. which are used by the tourists. It's close in, but the traffic is relatively light, which helps in the noise control. The room is good-sized. The kitchenette has a microwave, sink, and refrigerator, but no burners, pots, or pan. The breakfast selection was very good, including omelets, yogurt, pancakes, cereal, etc. We got a pretty good deal; the ones closer to the ocean were indeed more expensive. It's also within about a 15-minute drive north to Astoria, and 10-minute drive south to Cannon Beach. I'd be happy to stay here again.

Room Tip: We were in a room right next to an elevator, but we didn't hear it. Don't be afraid if they...

Nice clean stay with pleasant staff.
The breakfast was a nice addition to the stay, but the two mornings that we were there was a little hit and miss. The breakfast changes from day to day, and it was definitely better the first day than the second as much of the hot food was very salty. My only complaint about the room was that the air-conditioner was a little on the loud side and bothered my wife so we had to turn it off. As it was getting cooler during the nights, it wasn't a huge issue.
The location is close enough to the beach that it was only a few minute walk to get there. If you're looking specifically for a beachfront property, then this isn't the place. But the location of seaside is close enough to all the other beaches along the northern coast.

My wife and I spent one night here on the Tuesday after Labor Day.

The grounds were clean and entrances to the parking lot were marked well. It is located very well and makes for a good jumping-off point for the area's State Parks and other sights.

There was no problem with the online reservation. The desk clerk was friendly and provided information about the room's location and the next morning's breakfast service.

We found the room to be clean and it seemed well-maintained. The king bed was very comfortable and the four pillows were fluffy and without odors. The flat-screen TV had good picture-quality and a better-than-average channel selection. The in-room complimentary Wi-Fi was very strong and fast. The water pressure was very good with plenty of hot water and an adjustable shower head with several settings.

We didn't use the pool area or ice or any vending machines and we skipped the complimentary breakfast.

The 11 AM checkout was a little early for us but doable.

There was only a sheer curtain over our balcony door, the heavy one folded to the right in the enclosed photo is for looks, so expect lots of morning light.

The balcony railing was wobbly - be careful.

Overall, this was a nice room in a nice hotel and perfect for us tired people to crash in overnight.

Room Tip: Canal view rooms overlook Quatat Park.

Given the very nature of the hotel business, the hours are long and demanding.
Day or night, good service depends upon people willing to give their very
best at all times. That's why it's truly rewarding when a guest recognizes our
staff’s efforts, and takes the time to say thank you.
Hope to see you again soon!

Very pricy during summer months but equal to other hotels in the area. Nice staff and clean rooms. Dining staff not especially friendly however assuming number of people and a little overwhelming. Our only place we stay when we are in Seaside.

We accommodate many guests each evening, and we strive to make their night's stay a satisfying one. The principal goal of our hotel is to provide dependable service to all of our guests at reasonable prices. But, it's only through their eyes that we can accurately assess the quality of the accommodations and services we provide.

Thank you!!
