We went against our better judgement and booked a night here, even after reading the negative reviews. If you enjoy staying in a terribly overpriced room with filthy carpet, stained & dented walls, very slow draining bathtub, buzzing fluorescent lighting and paper thin walls that force you to hear every footstep and bathroom habit of guests around you...well look no further because Astoria Riverwalk Inn is the place for you! As if that's not enough, they offer a mini arm work out when trying to pull up the faucet handle and open the sticky bathroom door. Finally, the dingy "white" towels coupled with little curly hairs on the bathroom from previous guests give the place real "charm." Disgusting!!! We desperately looked at other places nearby only to find out that there were no vacancies, forcing two weary drivers back to spend the night here. With socks on our feet at all times, and t-shirts to cover our pillowcases, we did our best to pretend everything was fine & not retreat to our car to sleep for the night. It makes me really angry to think any hotel owner and/or manager would be ok allowing guests to stay in a room like this. The real bummer is that there actually is some potential here with the marina and bridge views. I believe they're trying to make up for the gross rooms with cookies and bicycles available in the lobby, but it's just not possible. If only they cared about providing a comfortable night of sleep for their guests. A coat of paint, carpet cleaning, bleach, and some maintenance could do wonders. After staying here & briefly speaking with a few other guests, I'm certain that any positive reviews about this place must be fraudulent. Unless this place does some serious cleaning/renovating...don't do it. Don't book a night and have the same bad experience as us. Trust me, I wish I had listened to others.
- 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
