“Middle of the road”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

We were sent here by another hotel in Astoria as our fist choice (and apparently all hotels in Astoria) were full due to fishing season. The staff were friendly and polite and the hotel is located near to accessible routes to the centre (a minutes drive away). The rooms are exceptionally small. I'm from the UK and am used to small, but compared to other hotels, and even small hotels, these rooms are very very small!
But considering we arrived late and were leaving early the next day, we only wanted a place to rest our heads, so it did the job. Wouldn't really recommend for anything other than a layover.

We were tired and it was getting late so decided to stay here.

Definitely not recently decorated, very basic rooms that are not well kept. Shower head could not be attached on wall and was just hanging down. Breakfast isn't exciting just go for fruits and grab a real coffee elsewhere.

The kids loved the pool oblivious to the fact it wasn't clean and had that greenish tint. US$130 a night you can do better with your dollars elsewhere I'm sure.

The day we were arriving in Astoria, we called several lodgings looking for the cheapest room that had a view of the river/harbor. Best Western quoted us at $170/night. The employee at the front desk at Dune's told us that for $99/night we would have a view of the river. And of course, free wi-fi. Great!

When we came around to our room, our only view was of a tour bus. Around 7am our alarm clock went off, oops, no, it was the tour bus starting its day. When the bus left, our view changed from bus to 5' grass field. The only thing we could actually see was the bridge, which was pretty cool.

I went for a bike ride with my son, and when I came back, my key didn't work. Front desk quickly alleviated this problem while my wife held a sleeping 30lb boy, on the verge of letting him slip out of her arms. That's what made that occurrence problematic.

The bathroom door didn't latch, the hot/cold on the sink faucet was reversed, most of the channels on the TV were unwatchable, and the wi-fi worked 0% of the time and the front desk's only advice was "keep trying".

Small occurrences that by themselves were too minor to mention, but when added up really showed how little effort was made to make this place a positive experience. I wouldn't recommend this place - not for $100/night.

We're almost certain one of our cellphones was stolen out of the room by one of the cleaning staff - of which was working with his 12 year old boy.

We stayed here for a night not out of desire but out of neccessity. This was the last room available annywhere in Astoria or surrounding area for the night. We paid more for a single bed room which was also a smoking room (we don't smoke) for a lot more than expected nor deserved. Other reviews have said the rooms have been updated...I did not see that. The room looks like what you would expect for a cheap motel room..old toilet, old faded blankets, cheap wall art. The indoor pool was definitely nicer than expected so that was a plus. The beds ae hard, the pillows flat as pancakes, walls and floors so thin I could hear people under me talking and people next door showering and flushing their toilet which sounded like they were in my room it was so loud. The hotel is right off the main road in Astoria and next to the bridge so there is constant, loud traffic. Needless to say we will not be staying here again...even if it is my last option again. I would rather make the 2 hour drive home.

No. Don't. This is an older woodframe motel with no soundproofing between rooms. The floors creak horribly and you can hear every step of people above you and every time they turn on a faucet. If you must stay here, please be sure to purchase ear plugs. When I say the floors creak, I am not exaggerating. The floors on the first floor creak, the floors on the second floor creak. If you are on the first floor you can hear every step above you. Maybe that is why the front desk indicated that people were adamantly requesting second floor rooms. You will hear every door slam. The sign says AAA approved, but apparently they are deaf or have not stayed there. If I return to Astoria, I will stay elsewhere. If nothing else is available, I will drive in from somewhere else.

Room Tip: Go down the street.

i found all motels in astoria to be very overpriced. i got the best rate at this motel though it was still too high for what you get. the room was large and clean, there was a fridge and microwave, tv had 70 channels. negatives: loud traffic noise, no views, in-room coffee was very nasty.
staff were very nice. so it's a decent place to stay if you want a lower rate and can stand traffic noise.

Arrived to find our room was not ready but they did accomodate us. The front staff was friendly but the room was shabby at best, I am not a picky person. For the cost of the room it was disappointing and don't expect any extras. The shampoo came in small tear open packages and there was no hair dryer, iron or ironing board and the room was small. Also it was Saturday and pool & sauna were closed. Overall disappointed but if you just need a bed & shower then it worked.
