“Wonderful Hotel, Staff and Location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2011

I've been staying at the Best Western Ocean View Resort in Seaside OR every month for almost 10 years and I feel it's high time to give this hotel some credit outside of the customary "thank you" This hotel is situated right on the beach/boardwalk in Seaside Oregon. Needless to say, the view is fantastic. They have full size sliding doors that lead to your own lanai. Though they are still working on renovating the hotel, most of the rooms are already done, and done well! New beds, sheets, towels, decor and just overall feel. During the evening when you can no longer see the beach and waves, you can turn on the gas stove and listen to the waves crashing on shore. I travel quite a bit with my job and this is definitely a highlight to my travels. The hotel is topnotch and let me tell you, I feel the same about the employees. They are the most helpful and professional group of folks around. I hope you get an opportunity to get checked in and visit with Paul. He is a pleasure to work with and amazing to watch orchestrate!!!

Room Tip: King bed with a fireplace.

My wife and I went for a one night get-away. We upgraded to a King room with hot tub and full view.
The staff was friendly and effective, The room was very nice. The internet however did not work. For us that was a problem because we tend to plan these get-aways on the fly. The staff tried unsuccessfully to help (we appreciate their efforts).

What a wonderful stay. Location is great, room was roomy and clean. We decided to book a suite instead of two adjoining rooms, and were not disappointed in the least. The staff was friendly and accommodating. There was a slight issue with the fireplace, but after calling the front desk, maintenance had it fixed within 30 minutes. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet at the restaurant, and were THRILLED that kids ate free! The view from the room was exceptional from our 4th floor room. The weather was not so great, but it was still a lovely visit. I would DEFINITELY return.

Room Tip: Request pet free room if allergies are a problem.

If you're looking for a nice & comfortable place to stay, this is it. When we arrived, we were given a room on the 1st floor. However, when we made reservations, i was told we'd have an ocean front/balcony and ASSUMED we'd not be on the 1st floor, where you do not have much of a view. Luckily, there was a room available on the 3rd floor, and the assistant manager quickly changed our room to the 3rd floor, where we had a perfect view. Our room had a kitchenette w/ a 2-burner range/stove, fridge, microwave, and surprising a dishwasher (that was a nice surprise!!) We saved $$ by eating breakfast/lunch in our room and ate out for dinner. We did eat breakfast in the hotel restaurant, having the buffet. It was okay, but certainly not worth the price. By the way, the coffee was horrible!
Two complaints: very noisy! It was spring break and i realize many families w/ children were staying at the hotel. However, many of these children were unsupervised. We teach our children to respect others and the noise level while in hotels. These parents obviously did not! We had kids running, goofing off, yelling, etc in the hallways (that echoed) between 10 pm - 12 am. This also continued on the balconies as well. Also, dogs are allowed in this hotel and we heard frequent barking.
2nd complaint: housekeeping could have been better. We were leaving our room one morning when a male housekeeper asked us if we'd be needing service that day. We said yes and he acted "put out" that we'd said so. I mean, at $159.99/night...umm...yes...we want our beds made and clean towels! He also did not leave add't soap/shampoo.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and plan to return to this hotel. The front desk staff were always friendly and helpful. we had an issue w/ our fireplace and within an hour, they sent someone up to fix it. Thank you, Best Western Seaside for a fun family vacation.

Thank you very much for submitting your review. I apologize for the two problems you encountered. The noise from the other guests was certainly the result of poor adult supervision although the hotel should have more closely monitored this situation. As to the housekeeping service, we will provide some additional coaching and mentoring so ALL of our employees display the same warm and friendly attitude you received throughout the rest of the hotel. Thank you for telling us about that.

After a round of golf at Gearhart, we totally enjoyed relaxing in the suite with the jacuzzi and the view of the sunset over the ocean. The service was great and the room very comfortable. Location on the promenade was perfect.

We've stayed here before & each time its been an ok experience. Our recent trip was during spring break so perhaps that was why it was extra loud this time. After hours (between 10 pm - 12 am) there were running kids/teens in the hallways & balconies and were yelling & laughing loudly.
Two out of the three days our housekeeping experience was great. One of those threes days...not so good. First of all, the guy doing housekeeping asked us (as we left our room) if we wanted housekeeping services & then acted put out because we said yes. Once we returmed to our room, the toilet hadnt been cleaned & he didnt replenish our supply of soap/shampoo. He also didnt leave clean towels in the kitchenette area.
We had difficulty w/ the fireplace in our room. When we asked at the front desk, they sent maintanance right away & it was fixed. The front desk staff was very polite & friendly. We will stay again. Overall, it was a good experience.

Thank you for your review. I certainly appreciate the feedback, both the positive and the negative. There were some noise issues over Spring Break and I am very sorry that an otherwise good experience was tainted by the lack of concern displayed by others. In addition, we have addressed the situation with the stayover service and corrected it. Thanks again.
