Holiday Inn Express & Suites Seaside-Convention Center

Reviewed October 4, 2013

Not the best Holiday Inn Express I've ever visited, which is quite a few. They are friendly but seem to be understaffed at times both at the front desk and in cleaning quality (seems rushed, or maybe it was just a bad day for them), and if you don't book early you'll end up in a less desirable room. I unfortunately was in the position, they only had a few rooms left and of the ones that were functional the one I was in smelled like urine. The windows only open a small bit for safety so we had to rely on the fan for relief which makes it harder to sleep with the noise, but at least it drowned out the noise of the band playing at a nearby establishment. For such a large hotel there was only oddly only one washing machine, and it was broken when I was there which was inconvenient. Decent breakfast, coffee is always on. I would definitely pass this hotel up next time through town and probably try the Best Western around the corner.

Was just touring the beautiful Oregon Coast with my new fiancé and stopped at Seaside for lunch. Then decided to stay the night...then two nights. The staff were great. No hassles at all checking in or out. We were given a suite over looking the canal and could see the beach. Only a two minute walk to the shops and five minutes to the beach. Absolutely awesome. Definitely going back.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms on the second floor so you can see the canal and ocean at a higher height.

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.
