You must understand this is not the Shilo or Holiday inn. This is a Hostel that offers dorms and private rooms. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The Seaside Lodge and Hostel offers a very nice hostel environment with additional amities. There is a chill room/music room where you can play a piano, guitar, bongos or an organ. There is a communal kitchen where you can cook your own food. They do offer FREE BREAKFAST of pancakes and eggs. You will need to make them yourself and clean up after yourself as well. They have a coffee bar, however I did not order anything. They have canoes and kayaks available as well as a great outdoor space with a very nice view. The location is still very nice. You are within walking distance to the beach and the great Seaside shops. My daughter and I stayed in a small private room and was pleased with our experience. We did come prepared with extra towels, blankets and toiletries. There is no AC in the rooms, but being on the coast, there really wasn't much need. Just had our window open for a few and we cooled off just fine. My recommendations is bring your own pillow, as the ones provided to us were a pretty flat as well as towels, toiletries and additional blankets if you like having more than just one. Overall a very good experience. I will most likely stay there again. We stayed Aug 24th 2013 during Hood to Coast!
