“Great and Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Fantastic Hotel.
We booked a 2 bedroom suite for a couple of nights and got the third night free. Room was about $220 a night then that 3rd night free.
Not sure how clean or modern it was going to be and was a little nervous. We are normally more brand name hotel goers.

Anyway turned out great. The Suite was huge, very clean and very well equipped. large kitchen that was very clean, large sitting area, 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms with a king and queen. the queen room was ample, the king was very huge. Really clean throughout, TV's in lounge and master bedroom. Jetted tub in master ensuite.

5pm every day was managers happy hour with free beer and wine. expected it to be terrible wine but actually pretty nice and they keep pouring and pouring so we were getting real value. Staff were incredibly friendly especially Mark on the front desk who was there to help with any request and very generous and Christian who was the chief wine pourer and always smiling.
they really make you feel welcome.
Breakfast is complimentary and pretty basic but not bad for a freebie.

overall I would recommend to anyone. just 2 blocks from the shops and restaurants downtown and a 5 minute walk to the beach.

Room Tip: we had a suite on north side of the block and it was bigger than our friends suite on the south side...

I firstly have to describe how horrible I found Seaside. We arrived there having driven up the Oregon coast from Florence. Hence we had seen a lot of natural beauty and having driven through Cannon beach, I thought Seaside would be similar. I was horrified when we arrived and saw a tacky, neon lit town with arcades and slot machines. Should definitely have stayed in Cannon beach with it's boutiques and nice restaurants!

Our hotel room was extremely spacious and clean, but unfortunately that's where the good stuff ends.

As a lot of people do their own cooking here, there was a strong smell of cooking oils and smoke which made its way into our room. In addition there were lots of kids running about the hotel hallways making lots of noise. I understand this is a family hotel, but this was late at night.

The breakfast the next day was pretty poor and I left hungry. I was also put off by the other guests sitting at breakfast in their pyjamas... but then this was Seaside.

If you like Seaside, and you have kids then I'm sure this hotel will suit your needs, but for those on an Oregon trip, stay somewhere else. It wasn't exactly cheap!

I am very sorry that Seaside was not to your liking and some of our other guests were not more considerate disturbing your peace and quiet. I am glad you found the hotel clean and comfortable however. Thank you for your input.

Great room for the price, full kitchen, great breakfast, awesome location. Only two negatives-the business center was a joke. The computer was at least fifteen years old and couldn't run half the webpages I viewed. The second was the pool-it was bone chilling cold. For such a beautiful hotel, the pool was not heated? My children had chattering teeth from ten minutes of swimming. I actually chose this hotel because it had a pool, and we chose not to go swimming again for our stay. Luckily the spa tubs in the room were so huge, so it worked out. Great breakfast!

Thank you for the kind review and score as well as the constructive feedback. I think you are correct in that the pool temperature should be increased to 82-84 degrees. The Business center computer has restrictions on it due to the need to control for inappropriate downloads and viewing.

I won a contest from a local radio station and part of the prize included several nights at the Rivertide Suites. The staff was very welcoming and friendly, even though we were staying for free, and they gave us a lovely suite with a nice view. The hotel is right on the river so you have a vacation, beachy feeling even though you are 4 blocks from the ocean, and we could see the ocean from our room on the 3rd floor. The suite was spotlessly clean with nice amenities. We enjoyed the evening social where they poured generous glasses of free wine for us, and served sodas and snacks to the kids. The beds and especially the pillows were very comfortable. I would definitely recommend Rivertide Suites to anyone going to Seaside!

Room Tip: All rooms have a balcony.

Rivertide is advertised as "The Newest Hotel In Seaside" which is most likely true BUT...it is starting to age and it is very noticeable. Door handles don't quite work right, pain it chipping in places and worst of all, the windows don't latch. The we stayed there was a big storm that blew through and there were huge drafts coming through the windows. We cranked the heat to 76 degrees and that did keep us warm. I ended up sleeping on the pull out sofa...that was awful. It was basically sleeping on metal coils.

There are some upgrades that this place could make to really create the best hotel experience.

Now that the bad stuff is out of the way, the good. The service was great! Every staffer we encountered was very nice and helpful. Front desk man Mark was great. This hotel is a great deal for what you pay for. We got a room for $150 that slept 6 people. The breakfast is good and the rooms were very spacious. A nice place to stay in Seaside.

We live in Portland, and this is our favorite coastal retreat when we need to "get away from it all." We feel so relaxed and pampered at RiverTide! We love the 4th-floor suite with partial ocean view, balcony, cute kitchenette, and jetted tub. Rooms are spotlessly clean, the staff are super-sweet, and the complimentary breakfast actually has some healthy options (fruit and yogurt, yay!). You are just a few minutes away from an invigorating walk on the beach. This is the most bang for the buck you will find in this area!

Room Tip: In Oregon, the ocean is on the west side :-)

We didn't have an opportunity to stay at this hotel, but we have our reservations booked for next year. We attended a conferene in Seaside and originally only planned on staying 1 night although the conferene went 2 nights. By the end of our second day there we decided we wanted to stay another night. We call Rivertide and spoke to Mark, the hotel we stayed in was completely booked. While he didn't have any rooms available in his hotel he offered to call other hotels for us to find us a room. We declined his offer to call and asked that instead he provide us with phone numbers to the hotels he knew had vacancies. We did find a room at a decent hotel and didn't have to pay a lot considering it was last minute and the last room available. We appreciate Mark's willingness to go above and beyond and I'm sure some customers would take him up on the offer but we didn't feel like making him work for us, he already did so much. Instead of telling us he was booked and have a good evening he explored our situation and found a solution for us. Like we said at the beginning we already have reservations for next years conference. We had some friends that were staying at Rivertide so we know the rooms are fantabulous!! Fantabulous rooms, breakfast and customer service! Thank you Mark for all your hard work!

Room Tip: We had friends in the River View and Mountain View 1 bedroom suties...both were fabulous.
