“ON the waterfront marina”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Stayed here for two nights Aug 25, 26, 2012 during the king salmon run. LOVED this place for several reasons: It is on the riverfront, the marina is directly below the hotel, which is PERFECT if you are fishing, it does not get any easier than this! Also, the rooms were spacious and clean, beds were comfy, very quit at night. There is an early basic breakfast provided for free in the lobby, great for an early day of fishing. Staff was friendly and competent. The rate was very reasonable too! If you're fishing in Astoria, THIS is the place to stay.

My husband and I traveled with 2 teenage boys. We had a family suite 2 adjoining rooms. They could do their game playing (the game system was there with games and movies in the lobby). The view is great. I would recommend this hotel to anyone especially if you have kids with you.

Room Tip: every room has a water view. The place is well off the highway.

Totally excellent experience. View of Marina and Astoria's looong bridge over the Columbia. Comfortable bed. On-site owner. This is the old Astoria Red Lion in process of revival to be a locally owned and operated quality hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms overlook the Marina as far as I could see.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. We booked it primarily on price and secondarily on location, and were prepared to find a second or third rate hotel. Instead we found a premium location right in front of a marina with sliding glass doors leading to a small deck with a gorgeous view if the marina and river. A very good breakfast was included, the staff was friendly and always accessible, and the rooms were well cared for and clean. Overall this is one of the top values we've found anywhere.

Found this place by chance. Reception were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and tidy. Had a private balcony with views over the marina. Watched the sun go down and the boats come in. Within walking distance of a number of good eateries, including pub food and more upmarket. Short walk into town for all other amenities.

We stayed at the Riverwalk Inn on August 25th. WE came from Cannon Beach and decided we would like to spend another night. It was the only Hotel that had any rooms from Cannon Beach all the way to Vancouver Washington. I did not see the Hotel I was directed there from an employee at the Best Western in Seaside. I thought how bad could it be as they are charging $175.00 per night. When we got there I almost kept on driving, if we didn't have out 6 month old and 5 year old son I would have kept driving. This is a Motel and is very run down. I said something to the employee at the front desk regarding how the rooms are and he said that this used to be the Red Lion and it sat vacant for 2 years. He said they had replaced the beds. I had to sign a waiver that we would not go onto the balconies as we were told we could fall through. I asked for a recommendation for a restaurant and he recommended a glorified Denny’s.. I told him were looking for something more upscale. He wasn’t very knowledgeable about that was around Astoria. We went to our room and it was very stuffy, we could not open the balcony as it was bolted shut. The room is very outdated, the furniture was old and showed wear and tear. I did not sit on the chairs. We went to dinner that night to an Italian place we found ourselves, I think it was called Fulio’s. It was excellent. I actually wanted to sleep in the restaurant, it was way nicer than our room. I hated to go back to that place. That night we heard every noise from the rooms surrounding us. There is no insulation.. There were people getting up at 4:00am and you could hear them talking and the water running, showering, ect... We got up shortly after that and checked out and left. The room was so stuffy we all woke up with sore throats. I was sorry that I had paid that much for a room like that in a place like that. I can’t believe they can get away with those rates. Again, this place is a Motel, you would be better off staying at the Motel 6 for half the price.

Thank you for taking the time for your review. We value your comments.

One of my favorite things about Astoria is our fine restaurants. I am glad you found Fulio's. If you make it back to Astoria, I highly recommend The Baked Alaska and The Urban Cafe. Also for breakfast, The Columbian has an excellent eclectic menu.

We apologize for the balconies being closed. We have been working with the city, and a local construction firm, to get our balconies rebuilt and safe. In fact, we are proud to say we now have 42 balconies open, with the remainder expected to be complete within the next 45 days. We are a locally owned and operated business, and we strive for a clean, professional, and friendly product. I apologize that your stay was not to you and your family's liking. We have family suites designed for children's enjoyment. I would love to have you come back, so we can show you OUR Astoria. Please contact Seth Davis, General Manager, or Brad Smithart, Operations Manager for your next booking, and regarding your past stay. We would love the opportunity to accomodate you on your next trip.

Sincerely,

Brad Smithart
Operations Manager

We made a last minute trip to the coast and could not find an available, reasonably priced hotel at such late notice. We found the Riverwalk Inn on internet. It is located right at the base of the bridge, has a good marina view and is right on the riverwalk which goes along the Columbia River. Great location. The check in staff was very polite and welcoming. The room was clean. However, the TV was old and did not have a remote. The deck was unusable due to rotting wood. The price was right , (lower than the average place in that area), but the room wasn't great. There was a limited free breakfast . The check-out staff was also polite and helpful. The staff seemed very nice ... hope they can get funds to renovate the motel and return it to its "prime" !

Thank you for your comments. We value all guest responses. We pride ourselves on our excellent staff.

We are a locally owned and operated hotel, and are happy to say that your comments are being addressed. All our king size rooms now have flat-screened televisions, refridgerators, microwaves, and upgraded linens.

Being a small business, we are able to reinvest our revenues into further renovations. In 2013, $225, 000. 00 has already been earmarked for rolling capital improvements.

We look forward to having you stay in the future and enjoy the rebirth of Astoria's West Marina Basin.

Sincerely,

Brad Smithart

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Originally opened as the Red Lion – Thunderbird Motor Inn and later simply as the Red Lion, the Astoria Riverwalk Inn was the town’s first waterfront hotel, established in the late 1960s. The Port of Astoria owns the facility, and in September 2015 contracted with new local ownership to assume and improve the Riverwalk Inn operations. The new ownership group is comprised of seasoned business management professionals with significant experience in commercial property development and hospitality, including the development and initial launch of the award-winning Hotel Elliott in downtown Astoria. With a new operating team in place since September 2015, literally everything is new at the Astoria Riverwalk Inn. From the luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets, redesigned dining area and lobby adorned with local, original artwork; the addition of a continental breakfast; extensive landscaping and general updates throughout (including lots of fresh paint!), guests will gain a sense of renewed care and attention to detail. Other complimentary amenities include a business center just off the lobby, upgraded high-speed Wi-Fi, a DVD library and “Beach Cruiser” bikes for exploring Astoria’s acclaimed four-mile long Riverwalk. We think you’ll find changes to the Astoria Riverwalk Inn create an inviting atmosphere for a restful stay on the waterfront. We hope to see you soon! ... more   less
