Passing through Ilwaco on our Northbound trip, Heidi's Inn was exactly what we were looking for.
The room was at ground level, very convenient, and comfortable. (Being early in the season, the heater was needed briefly and worked perfectly.)

The clerk was friendly and helpful with directions we needed, AND the price was very fair !

Summarizing, this place was PERFECT for our stay !

Room Tip: Ask and you shall receive ! It was not a busy time of year, but the clerk gave us a perfect room location.

The room was clean, the water was hot, the bed was firm, and the price was very reasonable. It was newly painted and the owners, who were kind and considerate, said they paint every two years. The mini fridge, microwave, and instant coffee makings were a nice touch. I either camp or stay in budget motels when I travel, and this was the nicest, and cleanest, motel I've been in.

This is a good place to stay if you just want a budget-friendly place to sleep for the night. The room was clean. It was pretty quiet. There is a TV, microwave and refrigerator. The table fan kept the room a comfortable temperature. The shower was very small and the bed was just okay. I would not recommend it for a longer stay if you want something nice. The staff was courteous and friendly. Plenty of free parking. It's in a good location for access to Long Beach and the coast. A very basic room for a good price.

As new owners we obviously were not here during your stay, but we do believe your review was accurate enough to warrant a response - even a year or so late.
Heidi's Inn is in a unique location - right at the Gateway to Discovery.
The Port of Ilwaco, Cape Disappointment, long Beach, Astoria, The Columbia River, The Pacific Ocean, The Lewis and Clark Trail and Interpretive Center, a bevy of Museums...its definately all here. And you are right, you can save a bit by staying in Ilwaco over some of the larger properties up the beach.
As for extended stays, we do offer 6 Family Rooms all extra large in size with 3 Beds and a dining/desk area. Several of them also have full kitchens and can be booked with the adjoining room to create a very large living and sleeping area.
we also have The Wreck room - which is best for groups that dont mind sharing a very large fully appointed living area (Sleeps 8 with full kitchen, and double baths. Think college dorm..)
These rooms are also located away from the main building and office, providing a little more space and privacy for families and larger groups.
Thanks again for your comments and we hope to see you at the coast!

I spent a night here in August during a trip to Oregon and Washington. I had flown into Seattle that day, and planned to see some of the Oregon coast the next day. It was the cheapest place in the area. The room was clean and well kept. There is a fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker, which were all nice ot have. The fan in the corner was enough to make a little white noise, as there is no ac to cover any outside noise. The shower had good water pressure, which is great for my thick hair...I hate weak showers in hotels!! I know someone else mentioned the bed was a little firm, but I didn't think that at all. It was really comfortable and I slept well until the fishermen started leaving in the morning. They weren't very loud, but it was enough to wake me up, seeing as I was still on east coast time. It was a quick drive from Astoria, and a quick drive into Long Beach for dinner. As this is mainly a hotel that is popular with the fishermen, I think they were all surprised to see a single female traveler staying there, but I felt perfectly safe. The hotel placed me on the second floor, which always makes me feel more comfortable. I would definitely stay there again.

This is a great place to stay if you just want a place to sleep for the night. We ended up staying at Heidi's Inn because the other hotels were completely booked. The room was clean. The towels very fresh. The microwave and refrigerator were an added advantage, more so because we could store and heat our baby's food. The table fan was a nice touch and so were the nesquick satches. The staff was courteous and friendly. Parking is free and available in plenty. A very basic room for a great price!
